    I need something trouble-free, with coils that last, and great for the 100% VG that I vape.

    Yes, I realize I could mess around with these things all day and fiddle with them, but I have better things to do!

    My Sigelei V3 telescope PV does not need an hour of babysitting and handholding each day, in fact, it is completely trouble-free, never a single issue, why are the glassomizers so trouble prone?

    PS - why doesn't any glassomizer company supply a high end wire for their coils such as REAL Kanthal from Sweden - you would think with the success of the Provari, someone would go high end on coils as well!
    Seems to me the choices are:

    1) Use a carto system;
    2) Change atomizer coil regularly
    3) Clean coils regularly

    I haven't had a flood since I got my coil building skills honed. A little effort to learn to build your own coils and problem solved!!

    The coil is a big part if it. I had gurgling and leaking with Protank 2. My neighbor recommended the Aero tank air flow control base for the Protank 2. It works. I gave away a Protank2 so I had to order another one, and a couple of the air flow control base. What a difference. I use Kanger coils that fit Evod, Protank and Mini Protank. I rebuild with 2mm silica wick, 2mm flavor wick, and 32 guage kanthal A1 wire, 5 wraps around 1/16" drill bit (.0625" diameter) placing the silica along the bit base and wrapping the kanthal wire tightly gives you 2.0 - 2.3 ohm coil. I use Itaste VV Version 3 to check ohms. At times I have to redo the rebuild to get the ohms correct but it works.

    When you say "leaks" do you mean leaks out the bottom, or gurgles?

    If they leak out the bottom, you are probably screwing the heads on with too much force. This causes the coil to unscrew a bit, and let juice through the threads. You can fix this just by re-tightening the coil (and using less force when you put the head on).

    (By coil, I mean the whole coil assembly...)

    If you mean "gurgles", make sure the white translucent plastic thingy is pushed all the way down.

    I get a laugh at how many people post their protank head problems and hope there is a miracle fix for them when in reality its 2 minutes of realign of the coil wraps and adding a longer, thicker flavor wick... problem solved.
    You are so right. There is no plug and play.
    I vape using 100% VG and the coil is a big part of the leaking. I open up the coil, and put in a thicker (2mm) flavor wick. Then I got an Aero tank Air Flow Control Base ($5.99 + shipping) for my Protank 2 .It works on Protank 1,2, and 3.
    By allowing the air in the vacuum inside the tank to be maintained - no leaking, no gurgling.
    Sun Vaper, Lite Cig USA, and MyVaporStore carry the Aero base. For a while everyone was sold out.
    I'm sorry I gave away my 1st Protank 2. I just ordered a 2nd Protank2 to use with Innokin itaste VV V 3.0, and Innokin Itaste MVP.
    The only tank that gave me no trouble regardless was the Kanger Mini Protank 2, but you have to refill it frequently.
    As in life, there is no perfect anything, job, car, spouse, house, dog, cat, horse, etc..

    Haven't had any trouble with my Kanger Aero. I've also heard that the base can be used on the Protanks to eliminate the leaking problems but I don't have any personal experience with that. You can buy the base by itself. The Aero has a sealed bottom instead of the open pin hole of the Protanks and mine hasn't shown any gurgling or leaking at all since I've had it.
