Broken Kanger Protank mouth piece....
Just checking to see if this has happened to anybody else. Just got a Kanger Protank about a week ago and have been loving it until just this afternoon. I noticed a film of juice on the outside of my tank. I thought I had just maybe spilled some juice or I was leaking internally and some juice was coming out the actual mouth hole. As I was wiping off the tank, the mouth piece popped right off. I had Key Lime juice in at the time for the good part of the day. Could flavors be killing protanks as well?!?! Or, did I just get a bad tank?Photo05151403.jpg
I think you just got a bad one. I had one that seperated on the other side. My B&M that i got it from was nice enough to swap it for a new one for me. I have 4 of them and that was the only one i have had a problem with.
I think they use some sort of strong epoxy or glue to hold the top and bottom to the glass, maybe they skimped on your tank, but wouldn't rule out some flavors maybe eating at the glue I guess?
It's entirely probable that the heavy acidic nature of the citrus juices would mess with the epoxy of the tanks.
Well that truly sucks!
No issues with my Pro's (Knock on wood!).
OK being stupid now.... (tug, tug, pull,pull) Yup! Nice and solid.
When I first got mine, I assumed it came apart. Of course reading the instructions was not an option. I actually tried to unscrew it, tug it pull it. No go.. If you can't get it replaced, maybe you can glue it back on.
Bad tank more than likely, I have 4 Kanger's and not one issue afte rmodding the wicks and air holes
I think a bad tank....very bad...sorry

Thanks eCig Forum folks!
My hope is this is just a random bad tank (fingers crossed). I had actually ordered a back up the other day, but it won't be here till the end of the week (anxious, indeed with USPS tracking page bookmarked).

Overall, my week with the Protank has been a nice upgrade from my Kanger T3 clearos, which seemed to only work for me for about 3 days before the gurgling noises started up.
Okay, if there are any folks at Kanger who just might stumble upon this thread....make the bottom piece and the mouth piece screw on...I'd be willing to pay a few extra dollars for that modification...
It's nearly impossible to cut threads in Pyrex. Otherwise we'd have screw on glass tanks
