    I did buy the PCC carry case and it works out great for me. I carry 2 complete erolls and 4 or 5 tanks depending on if I have an extra atomizer in a mini Altoids tin. If I'm going to be with a group of friends (almost all of them still smoke) I get pretty bad cravings so I keep 1 eroll filled with 40/60 PG/VG and 1 or 2 tanks for the cravings. The others are 100% VG. The 40/60 gives me enough of a throat hit to still feel like I'm smoking.

    I carry tanks in a little tin and use an eRoll carry case to keep the big bat and the spare eRoll together.

    Depends but normal day to day I just fill my protank with adv and a second in my pocket of something smoother now if time is unknown I throw a bottle or 2 of juice in my bag and have 2 extra protanks full. I always have spare part ie coils and tips in car and my bag and of course home I have everything lol

    It seems counter-intuitive, but tighter does not always make a good seal. Just tighten gently until you feel the first compression of the seal, and a fraction of a turn more. The threads of the U-Can are coarse, doesn't take much to create more linear motion ...

    Also, as was mentioned above, wiping out any excess juice will prevent seepage ...

    That being said, the U-Can is not something I carry in my pocket. Too heavy, I'd rather carry enough eRoll tanks for the day, usually two or three ...
    I have been wanting to get one of these little cans myself (better and safer than a plastic bottle in my purse) and yet, the constant stories of dripping had scared me away.

    Thanks for this input. I also saw something about shocking the orings back to elasticity. (hot hot water, then ice water.) I don't know if it works, but it's something I have filed away in my brain on the off chance I need it for leaky tanks, or ... maybe a u-can.

    Well, I am a tad envious of all of you that have enough batteries for ten! Wow. I'll get there I imagine.

    My setup is, eRoll pcc with one charging, one in the leather carry case.
    8 tanks in a drip tip case I hollowed out the foam from and a single battery with cone as a backup in case something goes wrong.

    As for the rotation of tanks and not wanting to wear them down... I have an empty k500 tank that I pop on for charging purposes (they have silicone and it's really just to have the 'room', to make them click down into the battery. (I did try them, heard they were better, but ultimately even though they're easier to refill, I just don't trust the silicone to remain drip free.) Also I vape 100vg and the silicone tended to collect more bubbles at the atty than the eroll tips.

    I have a spare pcc coming since I did run one to uncharged one day. Not sure how that happened, but thankfully I had my provari on me that day too

    I think ultimately I would love to have about ten of them in a small holder. Though the recharge once you got home would be a bit painstaking. (Cause you're filling and charging rotation. If you got tired to boot and just wanted to drop into bed I could see that as a huge drawback.)

    So, while that's a good idea and something I may do, I'm also looking into getting a few dead pcc batteries in order to create a mod. Charge for at least one, if not two of the batteries, holding a 3ml juice bottle and a few spare tanks. I'm not positive, will have to see what happens after I get the dead pcc unit or two, to try a different take since I'm trying to get it so it charges two. (Also want to work on a station charger, or a desktop charger. I think these things have a great future! Too many people just love them )

    Woohoo, nice to see some chat in the thread!

    Well, I'm reporting in: I've now gone a couple days just carrying an eRoll, PCC, and a needle tip bottle... and then a couple days carrying an eRoll, PCC, and a case with 5 filled tanks in it. And I definitely found it much faster to just refill with a bottle on the go. So I'll switch back to that for a bit.

    Refilling with a bottle on the go:
    - remove tank from eRoll
    - remove rubber protector thingy from the tip of the bottle
    - fill tank
    - put tank back in eRoll
    - put protector back on bottle

    Replacing a tank on the go:
    - remove empty tank from eRoll
    - open case
    - remove new tank from case
    - remove silicone cap from tank
    - put new tank in eRoll (while still holding the empty tank, silicone cap, case, and the eRoll)
    - put the silicone cap on the empty tank
    - put the empty tank in the case
    - close the case

    Ahhhhh....

    Default Do you carry tanks, a bottle, or neither?

    Love my erolls!! But I carry all kinds of stuff not to run out from an ego to my ProVari in my bag. I just fill them with my 30 ml bottles. I carry 2 PCC's 1 regular (washed a eroll don't work now) 1 leather carry case. They fit nicely in my scrub pocket like my ciggy's used to. Strange how it feels in my hand now that I've been analog free for 9 months!
    Nice to drive with though!

    I think you're onto something there. (Though, I do like the switch in flavors too ) But, your last scenario tends to be me, and I can totally see it being quicker to do the refill on the go. I'll have to look into one of those little zipper pull bottles (and see if that'd work, so I could hang it in my purse so it's not flying around. )

    I detest ejuice leaking onto the lining. Hands all sticky slimey and all

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Harleybarbie, I so prefer the eroll when driving! I just don't like the tiny tank if I'm driving more than a half an hour to hour. :/ Then I think it's too dangerous to refill, and would certainly prefer the multiple batteries with tanks already prepared and on them. (Then again that's the only time I chain smoked, was during long road trips. Not quite sure why... )

    These might be good for hanging on a bag: 3ml Keyring Dropper Bottle - 8 pack

    Although, they don't have needle tips so I don't how how well they'd work with the tiny eRoll tanks.

    Those were precisely what I was thinking of. Figured I'd get something like that, try and modify a needle nose tip. Thanks for the link! Wasn't sure where I'd seen them.

    But, saw the remark about standard cap that's had molding over it. So, no needle top... next on the drawing board. LOL, a funnel? Yeah!
