    Kanger Protank 2 or Mini Protank 2 are good bottom coil delivery devices. You want one that is made of glass/pyrex. These will not be as warm a vape. You can also use citrus and cinnamon type juices in them and not crack the tank. What clearo do you have, which ce or do you have Evods? Do you have extra heads?

    I often use CE4's 2.4ohm and ego's (fixed and VV..900a-1100a-1300a) and have no problems with anything...even a VV at 3.2V, I get good vape and flavor...but after 3-4 weeks, ya have to dispose of the CE4...they don't last forever..

    Evods are a very popular and dependable clearo. The brand name Kanger have little problems. The cloned/copies evods may have more problems. Evods are plastic and some juices can crack/melt the plastic. There are lists of those juices you can search for here on ECF. That is not your problem. Your problem sounds like you have to clean your clearo and maybe change the head. Also see the pg/vg ratio on your juice. Go look on that forum link I gave you and search for your specific clearo. You now have enough posts to go over there and post in that forum also.

    You will get this figured out. It takes some playing with new devices to learn how to make them work their best.

    Some copies have higher failure rates and do not have as long a life as the name brand, or time you can use them. I have said all I know that can help you. Others will know more than me.

    I do really hope that you can solve this problem. I know how frustrating it is to not have your equipment work right for you. Maybe pay a little more money and get a Kanger clearo and see if that makes a difference for you. Good luck. You will find something that will work good for you.

    Sorry to tell you this, but the CE# clearo is amongst the worst of the clear's on the market. Top coil people migrate to vivi nova's, bottom coil people to Kanger evods and Protanks, for the most part. Also, I am an extreme vaper and change my coils every one or two days, same with my cartomizers. But, it's me, not the devices. I vape all wrong, use heavy dark sweet juice, all around 7 - 7.5 Ohms.

    When I first started vaping in 2009, I was quite annoyed to find out that the gear, which was quite expensive, doesn't last very long. I felt like they were getting me coming and going. I was fed up and quit. I didn't know very much back then, and there were not a lot of choices. No one really explained to me that I had to purchase replacement pieces (heads/coils) frequentyly, because they are going to wear out, and, in my case, fast. Annoying, so I went back to my $20 per day analog habit. Even if I changed my heads every day back then, it would have only cost me $3.00, a savings of $17 a day.

    It's different today. Everything is rebuildable and changeable. Heads can be replaced for about a buck or so, carto's less than a buck, I can rebuild (and do) for about a nickel a head. Cost is nothing. Vaping though does come with two things I didn't understand at first. One, I am going to have to maintain the gear by clearing, cleaning, changing stuff, etc., and two, I was going to have to spend money to maintain a good vape. It's part of the deal. I am so fanatical about my vape, that I change cartos almost every day. This is maybe four or five times more frequently than most. But, I like what I like, and it's still hundreds of dollars cheaper for me to do this, than to smoke.

    In your OP, you didn't mention how long you vapes without a problem, for example, two or three weeks, then, BAM, suddenly tastes horrible, what your setup was, what juice you're using, etc. I did see CE, which is a redflag for the least expensive and poorest performing of our toppers, imho. They are dirt cheap these days and in bulk are about the cost of several good topper's coil replacement costs. You can do better than this. The kanger Protank II is the best clearo on the market, imho, today. They are universally loved for their vape, their ease of use, ease of operation and maintenance, and wonderful vape.

    So, change your coils more frequently, get some new toppers to try, along with some new juice, and power up and vape on! My .

    CE4s were the first clearos. I used them and as soon as another became available I stopped using them. As far as rebuildables seeing as your in SG it's the best route because, if need be, you can rebuild the heads yourself with easily and legally found Kanthal wire and wick.
