    Nice! Thanks man! I am using vivi now as well and it works great. But based on the link u gave me... I think kanger is another option to try out!

    I have both and like both, right now I have the Vivi Nova on my Spinner as a travel unit and the Protank on my Zmax. I would be hard pressed to choose just one, but I like both top and bottom coil systems.

    I have the Kanger MT3, T2, and Protank, along with the Vivi Nova SVT, cartos, carto tanks, ICear 30, AGA T+ and the AGI. The truth is the only thing I have tried that I don't like are the CE4/stardust, they had too tight a draw and leaked on the battery post, everything else has a place and I really couldn't pick a favorite.

    IMHO I like the Kanger Bottom Coils better than the top coils they both have great vapes but when the top coils decide to give a dry hit it sucks. I havent had a dry hit from and BC kangers. Just my 2 cents.

    After vaping a Vivi Nova for months I ordered a Kanger T3, which is a bottom coil design very similar to the Protank. Using the same juice, I get a little better flavor and much less harshness and no bitterness from the Kanger. My next purchase will be the Protank and I suppose that it will be my favorite of the two.

    I have Vivi Novas and Protanks. Since getting the Protank, the Vivi's have been collecting dust. Ordered my second Protank last week, and I'll most likely get a third.

    I've tried a bunch of clearos. Hate the Stardust (leak in my purse). The vivi novas are okay, but dry hits are annoying.

    My protanks are my absolute favorite followed by the Kanger MT3 (I'm not sure what you guys call them here, that's what they're called where I ordered them from).

    So, I tend to like bottom coils obviously.

    Even my MT3 is collecting dust. :laugh:

    I found the Protank worked well on the eGo-C Twist, but it works even better on my new Vamo.

    Yeah. I use my Protanks on my Provari and passthrough ego. It just looks silly on the mini that I grab to run out the door. I keep the MT3s for that :)

    I am waiting on shipment of some vivi novas from overseas. If anybody on here uses a viva nova on a lava tube I have a question for you: do they look more in place than the clearomizers do? My clearomizer looks like it was built for an ego.

    I have both of these. I love my kanger but I picked up a nova to get the warmer top coil vape. It definitely is much warmer, but after using the kanger for a while, I just cant get used to the hard pull (nova is a fairly hard pull) and the kanger while 'airy' provides plenty of vapor and is just all around a better feel. The down side right now to the kanger is its a little hard to find replacement coils outside the stock 1.8ohm range.

    My Protanks came with 2.5 Ohm coils. I also have two boxes of replacement coils that are 2.5 Ohms. I've never seen a Protank come with a lower resistance coil.

    I finally ordered a Protank and two 5 packs of replacement heads. The T3 sold me on the bottom coil design. It's definitely better than the Vivi Nova.

    Vivi Novas were great last fall.....mine rarely get used these days....Kanger Pro Tank has dominated all clearomizers from the past.

    Very easy to rebuild the coils on these KPT's.....and the pyrex walls will never leech plastic into ur eliquid or melt from acidic ejuices.

    I'll dry off my normal sized Vivi and take pics of the Vivi and Mini Vivi on my Vamo. Should give you an idea of what to expect. :)

    Edit --

    Here's the Mini:

    Here's the "normal sized" Vivi

    It's funny that when I ordered my first Kanger T3 I didn't know that it was an eGO thread. When it came in I had to use it on an eGo or Riva battery because it wouldn't fit my Provari. This time, I ordered a 510 to eGo adapter when I ordered the Protank. I won't get caught short again.

    Still, vaping the T3 on an eGo 650mah battery sold me on the Protank.

    My protank came with 1.8ohm heads, besides that it leaks a little onto my battery so have to carry something around to clean it off. I prefer my vivi nova minis but the protank isn't bad if you don't let the liquid level get very low and don't mind cleaning your battery contact from liquid.

    I stopped using "Twizzlers" a month ago. Not consistent enough for me.
