    Default Tanks: advice, feedback, suggestions wanted

    I'm fairly new to vaping and one of the things that frustrates me is that I can't find tanks that I can just unpack and put to work. I like the large tanks and that they allow me to go longer without having to refill them. I'm currently using a protank 2 and an aero tank. Both are little princesses. You have to fill them just right and not let them get below half a tank. Which in my opinion defeats the purpose of a large tank. And even if you do every thing right, there's no guarantee it won't leak or produce dry hits. I almost want to go back to clearos, but I'm determined. There has to be a tank out there that doesn't require me to baby it to get a good vape. It's no wonder so many people build their own stuff. I wish I had the time and patience.

    So my question is: what products have you had the most success with straight the box? No modding, no tinkinger. I don't want to have to rebuild an atomizer, remove "flavor wicks", or anything like that. I'm very interested in tanks that aren't bottom coil fed, but I want to know what's worked for you.

    Thanks.

    I started over a year ago with original Vision Vivi Nova's. To this day I still have around 10 of them that perform perfectly, easy to clean, easy to change wicks in. I'd never have stayed with vaping if it hadn't been for the "Vision" brand vivi nova's. I've used the smok brand and really just didn't like the quality.

    I have several iClear 30 that I'm very happy with. I recently got a iClear 30B which I'm not happy with since it's leaking out of the atty and I got a Pro Tank 3 which so far has worked out very well. But over all I've been very happy with my iClear 30's.

    I hear ya. I've had a few minor problems with my Protank II, but my Unitank is completely obnoxious and leaks like a sieve under all but ideal conditions.

    Have you tried a cartotank yet? I recently got a couple to try and now I see why so many swear by them. The only issue I've had with those is a bit of leakage from the bottom of the cart when pushing it back up into place after filling/refilling, which I assume is from the pressure change inside the tank. I just make sure to keep a paper towel underneath, and once they're back in operation, all is well. The three I've currently got have all been performing perfectly so far, and they're different brands with different cartos brands and configurations. I like 'em so much I ordered 4 more over the weekend. Maybe give one a try?

    Thanks guys. No, I haven't tried a cartotank yet. But keep the suggestions coming. I'm making a list and I'm going shopping this weekend.

    Oh heck I forgot all about the I clear 30's. Great little clearomizers. For someone just starting their journey I'd stay away from carto/tanks, it was a few months before I started with them. And if you do decide on a carto/tank then buy only high quality. I hear a lot of complaints from new vapors about leaking issues and hard to fill.
    These are the carto/tanks I started with over a year ago.

    Since then I have tanks that cost anywhere from $20 usd all the way to over $100 usd. Cheap tanks = cheap quality. YMMV.

    I use the JTank and love it on a newly found 1.5ohm dual coil. Hits hard, reliable, and inexpensive.

    Try a IBTanked cartotank. You'll be glad you did. Better flavor and consistancy, no more dry hits or leaking issues, no maintanance.
