    Default PLEASE recommend a glassomizer that works! - tired of leaky Kangers, Davides, etc.

    OK, I had a Kanger Protank - it leaks (tried multiple bottom caps, coils, etc)

    got a Davide - leaks horribly using Kanger parts, much worse than the Kanger

    Davide works well with Aspire (dual) coils & set up that way - no leaks - but after less than one day the Aspire dual coils starts tasting horrible! (whereas will the leaky Kangers, the coil tastes fine for a week or two)

    I just want a glassomizer for my Sigelei V3 telescope (essentially a Provari) that doesn't leak and that the coils will last for a while. SOMETHING THAT FRIGGIN WORKS!!!

    Ir's crazy, been vaping for a year now, and have not had one single solitary issue with my Sigelei V3 and these dang tank systems are a problem 24/7!! ............ugh!!

    The miniprotank base will fit on the protank; you'll need to add an extra silicone cap (inverted) on top the atomizer for a snug fit.

    The miniprotank base uses the outer eGo threads; oh; does the Sigelei V3 have the eGo threads?

    I got the V1; it doesn't; I use an adapter 510-to-eGo/510.

    I'm using a Smoketech Empire Tank. Not a dribble or problem in a couple of months.

    I liked it well enough that I bought another, and will mention that one has an easier draw than the other. I cannot imagine why.

    ETA: It looks remarkably similar to the Protank.

    I feel Aspire is on top right now. Their BDCs are really great. Check out Pbusardos review on them.

    I'm using a Nautilus right now and its been a dream, not a single dry hit or gurgle with 100% VG.

    Coils still going strong. What are you vaping and at what voltage or wattage?

    Maybe you should look more into why the kanger heads are leaking. I've been using protanks since they came out and with a little DIY they don't leak, gurgle or flood. If you insist on using stock heads without slight DIY and assuming vaping is plug and play then your fooling yourself no matter what atty your using.
    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.

    This... On the other hand, if you don't want to learn to rebuild kanger heads, I would suggest a carto tank

    The Aspire coils work great for about a day, no leaks, no problems, then they get this horrific bad taste, God knows what kind of Chinese arsenic I am inhahing at that point

    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!

    I think we'll always get a little leakage in the 510 well from a stock PT 1/2/3 coil. The wet wick is only a few mm above the air hole.

    Your best bet is a sealed air flow control base. You can get a Smok version to use with any tank, an Areotank base to retrofit on your PT 1/2/3, an Areotank, or a aspire Nautilus.

    You could also try a aqua/R91/kayfun/fogger/squape. They are all rebuildable bottom wick tanks with sealed 510 bases.
