Waiting for my eVic to come in the mail and I was just curious what is a good tank and carto to use with it? I prefer carto tanks over threaded ones. TIA
Your choice in cartomizers will be primarily between Boge and Smoktech, unless you have an inside to Ikenvape availability and a quick trigger finger.
The filler densities between Boge and Smoktech differ. Boge's is denser, which makes them slower to absorb e-liquid than the less densely packed Smoktech's. However, Smoktech's may be easier to flood for this reason. More pre-punched cartos are available from online vendors for the longer cartotanks (which are also more common) than the standard size tanks, so that might play a part in your choice of tank length when choosing between standard and XL length tanks.
I would stay away from the cheaper tanks less than $20 because of lesser quality of parts and poorer fitting o-rings. Just my opinion from experience.
I recommend either the polypropylene tank kit from My Vapor Store 510 Pro DCTank Combo
or the pyrex tanks from IBTanked IBTanked - Get Tanked With Us!
or Phiniac Phiniac Rugged Pyrex Glass Tanks
Much information on cartomizers, cartotank setup, vendors that sell pre-punched cartomizers, and what resistance cartomizer to use on your battery can be found in my blog, accessed by clicking the link under my avatar.
You can also do a Google Image search for eVic and cartotanks to get an idea what particular tanks will look like on one: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...w=1152&bih=749

Boge F16 with F16 Flanged Pre-punched 2 hole Cartos.
This is an XL setup - nice
Vapor Beast - Free shipping
If you meant to say does it just take a standard 510-connector cartomizer, then yes. As long as you use the appropriate length cartomizer (standard 35mm length vs XL 45mm length cartomizer) in the appropriate length tank (standard vs XL), as displayed in the above graphic I showed.
If this is not what you meant, please explain better in more detail and I will try to help.

And as my above diagram showed in my first post, you can use either Boge or Ikenvape standard length cartos in a standard length tank, or Boge XL, Smoktech, or Ikenvape Mega cartos in an XL length tank.
The 6ml U-DCT from smoktech looks really nice on the eVic.
