    Default Something I didn't expect has posed a possible problem

    Hi all, since I started vaping I have ended up cigarette free for 32 days and 22 hours according to the app on my phone.
    I was actively encouraged by my mum after we discussed it to see what it was like. My mum has asked regularly how I have been getting on with it and I have always answered honestly about it when I have had a craving and mostly about how the craving has not been there.
    My mum had totally and adamantly said prior to my vaping that she has no intention of giving up and its too late as she has been smoking for way too long.
    Today though she asked again. I got my app out on my phone to check the time without a cigarette and we were discussing how I found it and how much I didn't even want a cigarette choosing to enjoy a flavoured minty vape instead. Well, wow, out she came with 'next time you order something online can you get me the same as what you are using so I can try it'.

    I was like, 'what? why? how come? why the change of mind?
    She has been a lot more intrigued into my vaping journey than she has let on.
    This has led me in to a problem. I am using at the moment an ego 1100 twist with a mini pro tank 2.
    Great choice I have found and she would love it. The problem? You have to twist it at the bottom to fill it up and sometimes its fiddly and hard to do and my mum has a very poor grip in her hands.
    So I will get the ego for her but what tank to choose that'll be easy for her to fill? I want a tank that won't be too fiddly for her otherwise it will put her off and she will give up before she has properly tried.
    I have only used the Evod and the mini pro tank 2 so far and neither will be suitable for her.

    Any ideas?

    There is a clearo that is very easy to use and doesnt gunk up too fast... but the first tank of juice is a bit metallic tasting, once that gets over with, its good vaping for its cost... the wife has been using one for more than 4 weeks with no issues other than a bit of gurgling on occasion... but what bottom coiled tank doesnt gurgle a tad...

    Its the Bauway CE8 Stainless Steel Mesh topper ( about 5-7$) the top pops off to refill... very easy to use

    I was thinking of CE4+ or CE5? But then you might aswell go with a protank that's more durable.
    In my case i would need something that will be easy for my mother to learn, else she will just give it up. Ofcourse she got all my help, but i can't be there everyday so.

    Yes. The mini pro tank though sometimes is tough to twist to open and thats the problem. She won't be able to grip it and will get frustrated.

    To put on your list of possibilities:

    Kanger is making a "Mini Unitank" that I have not seen yet. These fill from the top.

    If your Mum does not take easily to filling things and changing coils, perhaps you could buy her 20 or so quality 510-threaded cartomizers and pick up her empties once a week and do her refilling for her.

    Best of success to you and your Mum!

    Why not just go with the eGo flat tip tank system. It seems much more straight forward?

    I think any clearo is going to be a bit fiddly from time to time, and require twisting the bottom or top on/off to fill. Gurgly from time to time etc. About the only thing I can thing that would fit the need would be prefilled cartos or direct dripping.

    For my "Mum", I would do it all for her. And, sit in the evening with her for a together vape.
