    No kidding. In golf I grip my own clubs and cut/change my own shafts. It's not an "I can't" it's that I don't consider smoking a hobby and want plug-n-play. I'm not saying people that do treat it as a hobby are wrong, I'm saying I hope you can see that some people just want plug-n-play, and that's how I go about seeing the "value" or "price" of something, and there's nothing wrong with that either. I'm just not going to punch my own carts and use stuff that "kinda" fits or make trips to lowes that wind up with me in the garage so I can vape. It's why I like carts so much. Fill em up. When they break, throw em out.

    These use a regular size stainless carto (longer version or what was typically a mega carto but the word mega has been muddied up a bit). The flange is built onto the carto that come with the tank but is a feature that keeps the tank from slipping down like some of the other tanks do.

    Smok has also included a small indent in the bottom of the tank that the flange sits into to keep the tank from spinning on the carto. All cool features but still works with the regular stainless long carto.

    We do have replacement cartos coming in, most are dual coil but some different resistances. Single coil cartos will be next on the list..

    Thanks for the info. Glad I can get replacement carts for it in the future.
    I really am looking forward to trying it. Can't wait to be at the bar with my mega ego battery, ego booster, and the tank. It'll look like I'm playing a panflute while exhaling large clouds of vaper

    I have a question. I was thinking about ordering a roughstack, would the tank cartomizer work with it? Would I need to order an extension? Thanks

    This is what I was wondering as well, I have the shorty extender that I got to try the XL DCs, so it may fit on it that way. I'm worried its going to be a PITA to get to the button on the top of my RS.

    I just placed my order so hopefully I'll get it sometime early next week and can let you know. If it doesn't fit it'll go in storage till I get something it works on.

    I received mine today. Impressions in a moment.

    Regarding the quote, let's be clear: a "long" carto is not what most of us would likely call a "regular" carto. This tank will not work with the average, off the shelf, no-funny-business, superlative-free cartomizer.

    What most of us would call a "regular" carto averages 35.5 mm long (not including the 510 thread); this tank's carto body is nearly 45 mm long. Another comparison: the newer Kanger horizontal-coil 510 XL's are 50.5 mm long and will work in these tanks with just a bit poking out the top.

    About the only advantage the included Smok Tech carto seems to have is the flange at the bottom -- which, if the seal on the caps is any good (and it seems to be) is but a marginal advantage. And it is pre-punched with a very clean but VERY SMALL hole.

    I vaped it most of the day today as-is and worked OK with 80/20 nicquid. However, I did have to take lots of "priming" draws to keep the carto wet. Small bubbles can be seen exiting the hole into the tank during use.

    I haven't tried a Thicker Nicquid (which would, BTW, be a great name for a band) but I seriously doubt that nicquids much heavier in VG would vape well as-is. That hole in the included carto is seriously small. After a few hours I went ahead and punched a single, larger hole in the same location; performance immediately and dramatically improved.

    Taste is average to above average for a cartomizer, vapor and hit good when the nicquid's flowing. My carto actually reads 1.1 ohms. While I prefer a higher load this didn't seem to cause any problems and worked well on a Darwin (dialed down to 7.6W / 3.6V / 3.2A) as well as stock eGo batteries.

    The tank: Outside diameter is ever so slightly smaller than a J-Tank, but the Inside diameter is slightly larger -- meaning, the walls of this tube are relatively thin. This shouldn't be an issue unless you're hard on your tanks. The caps are similar to those of the J-Tank but not as dense a material and are chamfered. The bottom cap has a slight recess for the included carto's flange. Fully seated, the tank can still spin but cannot be pushed off the bottom of the carto, providing the biggest real advantage over a standard carto design (sans flange). The caps are not interchangeable with the J-Tank.

    The included drip tip is a nice touch but a very tight fit. Once I had it out I had to basically hammer to get it back in. Maybe that will work out over time.

    As-is, the tank and carto performs well, especially after enlarging the hole with a punch. If you like LR cartos you'll probably like this carto/tank combination.

    Whether direct replacements for the included carto are worth it will depend mostly on their cost and whether you like the resistances and coil options that will be offered. If they are, say, $1.00 more than standard cartos I'd be hard pressed to pay the difference, given that I'd be punching larger holes in them anyway. But if they're about the same as other cartos and come in a higher-ohm (at least 2.0 or 2.5 ohm) single-coil versions I might spring for them. Otherwise future replacements will probably be the newer Kanger XL's.

    Exhalesior!

    Yes, requires at least a shorty connection on the roughstack. 1 shorty is sufficient but two stacked works best.

    So until they get the flanged pre-punched carts in, if I decided I just loved the tank toooooo much and was willing to punch it, which cart would be the best fit?

    510 Dual Coil Stainless Mega XL Cartomizer

    TIA

    Thanks for answering the questions Hoogie, well there you have it, ( Six & Large ) a regular DC Carto will fit and work just fine all you gotta do is punch it like every other tank. For the Money I dont think you could go wrong with one of these Tanks from MadVapes nice Job MV's !
