    Default Best Tanks

    Hey guys. Quick poll to see what your opinions are on the best tanks? Easy to use with great vapor/flavor?

    We have vivi nova, Ce4, and DCT (single coil 2 ohms..really like them!)

    What are your favorites and why?

    -Ben

    I think I've gone through all the various delivery devices by now. This includes various versions of the Vivi Nova, RBAs, Genesis tanks, cartos, tank cartos, iClear 30, Kanger T3, Kanger EVOD, tank systems such as the eGo C/T type, good ole fashioned atomizer/cartridge combo.

    My top 3 in order of preference is carto tank, carto, iClear 30.

    Why? Because carto tanks are easy, consistent, and if you buy a good quality cartomizer the flavor terrific.

    Dripping is great too but not really practical when you are on the move.

    Kanger t3 and EVODs? Out of the box are junk IMHO. They easily burned for me and I'm not fond of the tiny wick that easily breaks apart.

    Vivi Novas? Only if you like sucking watermelons through a straw. The draw on these things are horrid (again IMHO), the flavor is muted, they gunk up easily, and adds a funny taste to your juice.

    iClear 30? Not bad flavor and vapor but again they tend to add a funky flavor over time to your juice. They are also very temperamental. I bought 3 of them with a 5 pack of heads. Each head cost me $3. That's a total of 8 heads. I've had to throw away 4 of the heads as 1 had a short and the other 3 only had 1 working coil. When they work they are great (still not as good as carto tanks) but I would definitely take these over Vivi Novas in a heart beat.

    Gensis tanks are just not practical for me. I have a full time job and kids. I just want to be able to fill up with juice and go w/out having to bring any tools w/ me in case i develop a hot spot in my coil.

    Out of today's choices of delivery devices carto tanks fit all my needs. They are easy, consistent, great flavor, and can be really cheap to get into.

    Thanks for the feedback, sir. I'm a big fan of carto tanks as well. Do you have some preferred models? I love the two holed boge cartos (around 1.8 ohm)..unfortunately, have run into some cracking issues with their particular tanks

    I prefer carto tanks as well. They provide the best flavor and vapor for me. I am currently using UDCT tanks that have the locking ring. This is a good feature if you have problems with a sliding carto. I also use other standard DCT tanks and the ego threaded DCT tanks.

    My husband and I use 2.0ohm and 2.5ohm 510 cartos made by Smoktek. We like the pre punched two holes (usually I have to punch at least one of the holes myself). Of course we use the flanged ones for the ego and UDCT tanks.

    Having tried both the Vivi Nova and DCTs, I like both but find myself leaning toward the carto tanks. Not saying that one is good and the other bad. I mean, heck, I am using a disposable clearomizer right now.

    It may just be in my mind, but the carto tanks seem to stay truer to the flavor(s) during "heavy" vaping, and seem to offer cooler vape at higher volts/watts.

    Another plus to the carto tank is (IMO), it SEEMS less sensitive to tilting. The Vivi's just seem to want to flood if laid down (gotta get me a stand, huh?).

    Lastly, there just seems to be more choice(s) with the carto tanks also. Many glass tanks that are reasonably priced, so that there is some personalization and work with your preferred cartomizer.

    JMHO, YMMV...
