    Or you could try the 'hmmm, I wonder what these two juices would taste like together?' method. (You got chocolate in my peanut butter.)

    Sounds like we need to start a thread of the most useless vaping toys we ever ended up with.

    At the price, I just keep filling the tank with the same flavor until the carto dies, then throw the carto away. If something gets in the polyfill that tastes weird, you'll never get it out.

    Yup, I tried the boiling thing once. Too much hassle, and I can afford $2 cartos every 2 weeks or so. I just need to find a constructive use for used carto's. necklaces? Pot Pourri? Yew!

    Can anyone recommend an affordable carto, pre-punched preferably? I mostly use 50/50 juice.

    Is it a standard size or an XL? And does it require a flange (is concave at the bottom for a flange to fit into)?

    It does have a flange, and I'm pretty sure it's an XL.

    About the tank tools, does the IBTanked version work well enough, or should I buck up and get the Slap yo mama?
    I've never tried the Slap Yo' Momma tool, but the IBTanked tool works fine for me. Attach it to the carto, push the carto about halfway down in the tank, fill with juice from the top, push carto back up into place. Done in about 1 minute. Much easier and faster (and less messy) than the Smoktech tank tool I previously used on my Pyrex DCTs.

    I use flanged cartos on my IBTanked tanks. I just order the Smoktech 3.2 ohm single-coil pre-punched cartos from them. They offer a discount if you buy over 10 cartos (which I always do), so it comes out to $1.35 per carto.

    Carto tanks take a bit more setup than a clearo (i.e., properly priming the carto), but once that's done they're very simple - refill liquid when it's getting low, change cartos when they go bad. IBTanked's "thingy" even takes the hassle out of priming cartos - put the carto in the tank, fill the tank with juice, put the tank inside the "thingy" and twist the thingy's lid open/closed about 20-25 times. Your carto is now fully primed and ready for use. Top the tank off, put it on your PV and vape away.

    Use the above graphic to know what cartomizer brand to use, and what length of cartomizer, depending upon the length of tank you get.

    Here's a huge list of online vendors that sell pre-punched cartomizers. I include which brand and other options offered that each vendor sells with direct links. http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...artotanks.html

    And here is my cartotank setup guide: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...ank-setup.html

    The IBTanked pyrex cartotanks are an ideal tank for new and veteran users alike. A complete tank kit can be purchased between $25 -$30 depending upon the size of the tank. There are of course less expensive tanks on the market, but I'm a firm believer that you generally get exactly what you pay for. Paying a few more dollars can help ensure a more satisfying first tank experience. Here's a review of the IBTanked:
