    Default Less 'Airy' Alternative to the Protank II?

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks in advance for your input. Admittedly, I'm a noob - only been vaping for three weeks (analog free as well!) - I have the eVic and Protank-II. While I have researched the best that I can, are there any other recommended alternatives to the Protank-II that have a less Airy draw? I feel like I'm drawing on a McDonald's straw. Any recommendations would be appreciated - I'd prefer, however, that such an alternative be relatively maintenance-free as the Protank-II has been. I realize I might be wishing for too much, but I don't yet have the experience to know the vast array of options there are out there!

    THANKS!

    Check out the Tatroe Mods base for the ProTank. Much less airy.

    A good glass carto-tank is definitely much less airy and much more maintenance free than a clearo. No cleaning, no leaking, no maintenance for 10 - 15 days, then just swap in a new carto. Also more consistent.

    Check out the Hypertank. Holds more liquid and if you look closely at the bottom plate, it does not have the big air vents that the PT2 does. It takes the same coils as the PT2.

    I have 2 on the way. I am also hoping for a less airy draw

    Will notify. Stand by

    Is the draw really that airy for you lol? I actually just found out they reduced the size of the air holes on the base of the PT2 from the PT1 to give it a tighter draw. I can only imagine what the older base would've been like for you lol.

    The U-DCT aka Artemas is a good one it comes in 2.5ml and 5ml. It also comes in different colors. Only problem is the tank is plastic so certain juices will crack it. It locks on the bottom so there's no chance you can accidentally pull your tank off the carto. There's also the
    AGR+ which is another locking tank with a fill hole on top and is made with pyrex glass (so certain juices won't ruin the tank.). It only comes in one size. There's also other locking tanks such as IBTanked and Phiniacs but I have not personally used them so I did not recommend them. There's a million different tanks you can buy but I prefer locking tanks just as an added layer of protection from spilling juice all over yourself.

    "Airy" for me as a noob might not be airy at all for more experienced people, that's for sure - my local shop reacted the same way. He said, "hmm, it's a good thing you didn't have the PT 1, or else you'd be freaking out"...lol!

    I did order two of the Hypertanks mentioned in this thread and will provide a full review and update - I hope to have them this week.

    I would suggest a Phiniac or IBtanked glass carto tank and a IKenvape or Smoktek 2 or 3 holed punched carto:

    Btw you always have the option of tightening the draw by either filling in the air hole in the base of the PT2 and/or filling in one of the air channels that are drilled into the bottom. I'd use a non-permanent solution to try the draw before doing anything permanent. Like stick a wood toothpick into the air hole and take a draw to see if filling that hole makes it better... if so you can plug it with hot glue or compound.

    Optionally, I saw one member here who tightened her PT2 draw up by buying a small elastic hair band and putting it on her mod at the base of the PT2 to block airflow getting to the tank, rather than modify the tank itself.

    Good luck.
