Airiness is subjective. If I switch back to a carto these days the carto seems stiff and hard to draw through. At first, the Kanger Protank seemed too easy on the draw. Then, the metal tip seemed cold to the touch and created a sensation of cold vapor. I've been going back and forth from the Protank to the Vivi Nova to the carto and now the differences are much smaller and less significant.
I still think that a good carto is a little better than the Protank or the Viv Nova (and is more compact), I still like the tanks for the amount of juice they hold. I find myself still carrying a 3ml bottle of juice in my pocket. With the tanks, it gets used much less when I'm away from home. That, and I find myself having to blow out the carto into a napkin after touching it up. Not so much with the tanks.
All I have ever used are the Vivi Novas, they have worked well for me. Seems the darker juices gunk the coil fairly fast and i usually feel the need to clean them every 1 or 2 tanks.
Any tanks that require less cleaning?
I have been having issues with anything BCC
When the liquid gets low it gurgles and leaks
You can't go wrong with a Vivi Nova its a solid Vape and coils are easy to use.
The only bad thing about a Vivi Nova is you can't change the head without emptying the tank :(
I was not impressed with the Kanger... I threw it out driving on the highway....Put a Nova Back On....LMAO
I have used both. Loved the nova until I got iclear 30. Picked up a protank at vapfest and after getting a costumed to the airy draw I like the protank. Still use all three but don't think I'd get another vivi nova any time soon.
Sorry forgot to say, once you drop the protank you need another one. That's the only draw back for me.
It's a tough one. I have 1 protank, 1 iclear16, 3 mini vivi novas and 5 evods.
All excellent. All different.
I no longer use T3s and Vision V3s.
All in all, I'm still looking for the perfect vape. Nothing is as easy as lighting up. It's just dangerous using tobacco and I won't let myself go back and don't want to, in fact.
I keep telling myself that someone will develop the trouble free vaping method that is a good, repeatable vape that doesn't leak, doesn't irritate the throat, has somewhat adjustable draw, is the same from start to finish, tastes wonderful, and is easy to clean and maintain.
They are getting closer with the Vivi Nova and the Kanger. If I'm honest the SmokTech carto is one of the best for taste and ease of use. The rest are convenient and reusable, but not quite perfect. I like the tanks for high juice capacity and convenience. I still go back to the carto here and there for the ultimate flavor.
We've come a long way since the Joye 510 and its fiberfill material with a mesh wick. Those were a real pain.
