    Hmmm... never used, or even held in my hand, a CE5. So - it's a small cartomizer in a small tank... and they're calling it wickless. More like a "disposable" carto tank, IMO.

    Seems reasonable, unless you're someone who vapes 12 or more ml a day - then a real carto tank, with a $25 investment in a IBT tank, and real cartos running a buck ten a pop and lasting 5-10 days (for me, not so much for Bill, 'eh Bill? )... makes more sense over the long term.

    I suppose, on an eGo battery, the combination would be more attractive overall than a 15mm or larger carto tank.

    The 30s isn't really functionally different from the 30... the tube protects the wicks from damage by the user, and certainly looks more attractive, especially to first timers who think all them wicks hanging down look, ah... weird.
    The best bit, to me at least, is the ability to fit your own drip tip. SS in the winter time... I hate it when your drip tip ices over.

    I have read, not tried them, that the iclear30s has a much bigger air hole than the 'old' iclear30 and thus provides a more airy draw. I like my draw a little tighter, so have not bothered to try the new one. Again, that was based on a review I read here.

    Yea, I'm only vaping 2-3 ml a day across multiple flavors (so, multiple tanks of course) and with 24 mg nic, I'd likely kill myself if I did 12 ml in a day I appreciate the input, it all makes sense to me. I have a Vamo and an Innoken MVP V2 on the way so I may try out some of your other suggestions in due time.

    True... in fact, every iClear 30 I own I've already drilled out the 510 shaft, side air holes. As stock, they are tight, but easily corrected.

    So many ways to enjoy vaping... so little time.

    I'm lucky I suppose in the sense that I got my COO hooked on vaping back when I started originally and since he continues to do so (went from a pack a day to 0 mg nic liquid now!), there is absolutely no problem with vaping at work

    If you like the wickless CE5, you may want to try a tank attomizer or atty. I found it to be a natural progression for myself.

    I prefer the bottom coil now, it suits my tastes better and I find it a simpler set up than the long wick top coils.

The wick-less clearos, so far, have never dry-hit on me, they have a perfectly acceptable (at least to me) amount of vapor and, having had the same flavor (albeit quite awhile ago) through both types, the wick-less are at least as good and, honestly seem to have more flavor to me. Like i said, could just be placebo but so far I have not found a downside to them. I was just curious if anyone else who uses them noticed the same things as I, or anything different. The last time I took up vaping to quit smoking I basically did so without doing much research or learning, just kinda learned on my own. Unfortunately when I hit a little adversity, rather than reach out for help I just went back to analogs. I'm trying to remedy that part this time
    Yeah, top coils do require that the wicks be saturated by inverting the clearo from time to time before you vape. This type of wick is then known to be "position dependent," meaning that we have to twirl and invert to keep the wicks saturated. For many, this is not an issue. I thought it was a pita and switched to cartos, because you will get a dry/burnt hit when you forget to twirl or invert. I know a great many people though that use vivi nova's and T2's, seemingly never forget their position dependence requirements, and swear by them. Indeed it is a different strokes kinda thing. Personally, I have preferred bottom coils for a long time over top coils, but YMMV.
