    Default Need the right cartomizer for my setup

    I have been vaping on clearomizers for a long time: iClear 30s, 16, EVOD, etc. Yesterday I got a simple 510 Joyetech carto, and really enjoyed the vape. Incredible flavor... Now, I need to find something that won't leak all the time, and can hit more than just a few drops. Here are the parameters:

    100% VG with the occasional 80/20
    iTaste MVP2
    Provari (standard)
    Does not leak out the bottom

    What are your recommendations?

    You've tried PT2? I only have had one leak within my PT2's, however that was due to the bottom O ring had fallen onto the bathroom floor w/o me noticing when cleaning. WOW was that a mess and waste of a ton of juice for an hour trying to figure out why I was leaking and gurgling!

    My iClear 30s's had never leaked, however I had only used them a couple of times. Great cloud production, however major lack of flavor IMO. EVOD's... yea, hit and miss when they came to leaking, and never really got to enjoy true flavor and vapor production from them.

    Back to PT2's, I've heard of complaints of leaking due to being on the lower side of juice content within the tank. I myself had never ran into that problem... so I really can not confirm... only of course deny such claims... personally.

    So, all in all, with what you have provided upon your OP, it seems as if PT2 may be your best bet as an alternative IMO. I personally enjoy Kayfuns, however it seems you are not interested in (re)building your own coils (which is fine). So PT2 is my suggestion.



    PS: PT2 may look better on your Provari than a Joytech carto. If you happen to live around the left side of the states, I'd give you one of mine for free. LOL


    Good luck buddy!

    I don't have any leaking issues from the IClear 30S model or the 16's I know others have though. Are you interested in an RBA if so the Kayfun 3.1 is as leak proof as you can get. The clones on the market are very well made. I bought a real one, but could have saved a nice chunk buying a clone, and I could have gotten it faster then a months time.

    That's what I thought he was referring to as well...

    I had no idea they were still making them.

    I tried them years ago. Err... let's put it this way--they are not very good.

    Hi Brian. Anything that contains liquid may leak--nature of the beast. You'll just have to learn to live with it.

    Having said that, I own an MVP2 and a Provari and have used the following toppers: Boge and Smoktech cartomizers and carto tanks, Kanger BCC (T3, T3S, eVod, Protanks), Kanger T2, Aspire BDC (ET-S), iClear 16 and 30, ViVi Nova, T-Dux 2.0, and eGo-C atomizers. Never had one leak--ever. But there is a bit of a learning curve with each topper. One just has to figure out how to use them correctly. Make sure that everything inside is tightened properly (the coil head, gaskets etc.) and that you don't over tighten your clearos when screwing them on your batteries.

    Good luck.

    LMAO... Yea, I believe that's why most of us had moved on since then. They were GREAT for a foot in the door into the vaping world though. Without them, who knows if I'd still be smoking today. Funny how 90% of my concerns regarding weight, feel, size, and taste at first were all thrown out the window once I went to eventually my preferred setup is today. Crazy how that works out. Hahaha

    The little clearbeauties seem to for the most part be leak proof. I have had a few leak slightly onto my battery contact. I'm pretty careful to remove my tank or whatever regularly to wipe away any liquid that gets in there. More anal I guess you could say, as liquids and electricity don't mix well. For the units that do leak I have found them to be built with less care, most I have come across though seem to have good quality control. The clearbeauties are what I used to start off, there still a pretty good little system IMO, if you get good ones. As long as you keep settings low enough and keep your Hits moderate you will get fairly good vapor and taste without burning your coils, and that dreaded burnt taste. That said they IMO don't hold a candle to something like the Iclear 30's and protanks, for vapor and taste. I hate having to buy coils and depend on my shop to have what I need when I need it. In spite of my love for the 30S I am moving on to all RBA's eventually.
