    I bought this carto tank about a month ago. I use it exclusively. I haven't had to change the carto at all. It's still going and going. No tightness, no flooding it's still perfect. I thought that they were only supposed to work for like 4-7 days. Has anyone else experienced this?:blink:

    Don't know what to tell ya'... either you don't vape much, or you have stumbled on to the "miracle incredible self-regenerating lifetime carto". ;)

    No I vape A LOT!! I've put like 60ml of liquid through the dang thing. It's the most bizarre thing.

    I get several weeks from a cart. It depends on your juice IMO.

    That might be a lot to you chief, but not so much to me. I go through 60 ml in 5 days - or less. :p

    I think it depends somewhat on the cleanliness/clarity of your juice. Dark, heavily flavored juices do tend to clog the coil quickly. I am just finishing up a 30ml bottle of Polar Ice from Goodejuice. I vaped all of it through 1 little CE3XL and the clearo is still going strong. It is a clear/no color juice.

    Must just be the combination. I'd bet that if you changed cartos, you'd see a marked difference that you're not noticing now because it's lost a bit of "punch" gradually, over time.

    60 ml is only 3 days of vaping for me.

    Only sub ohm vapors could go through 60ml in three days (watching it all go up in a cloud)

    I regularly will vape 60+ ml through a carto, and sometimes I have tossed a carto for no other reason than I'm sick of looking at the damn thing.

    A simple trick for longevity is clear liquids go in a carto, and dark liquids go in an atty that can be washed.

    I've had the same experience. When I first bought my IBTanked glass carto tank, I used it with the original carto that came with it (Smok brand) for three months and never noticed any change in flavor or performance. Granted, it took me well over 2 weeks to go through a tank, but that is still phenomenal longevity. (FYI I was vaping a clear menthol juice in it.)

    The only warning I can offer is that if you continue to use the carto past that three month mark, you'll eventually start to notice a flavor change and it will taint the entire tank of juice sitting around the carto as well. Because of this, I now switch out my cartos at about two months even though it doesn't seem like it needs it.

    I have had it happen that way. I use just your basic boge prepunched with flange SL LR cartos with 1-2 extra holes punched (high VG juice). BUT my juices are clear and not very sweet which I think is the key in this. They just don't gunk up cartos or attys very quick.

    HEck I have one CE5 that I have never changed the head on and only dry burned twice in 5 months.

    Nope... 3-4 2.0Ω carto tanks, 2-3 1.6Ω KFLs and only one 0.8Ω RDA going at any given time. I prefer flavor to "clouds"... in fact, most of my juice is 60/40 or higher. :)

    Stuffing probably made of fur from shaved Duracell bunnies.

    The mint might be freshening it up?
