    I would like to add a custom touch to my new GLV-2. I'm currently using the SmokTech bottom feed tank, but would like to get a Phiniac. What size do I need to order?

    Thanks in advance!

    A phiniac is too fat unless you use an adapter to clear the button on the GLV

    Here I am! LOL You have to use an adapter with any of them as the Phiniacs are all the same diameter ... just taller or shorter.
    The short adapters clear the button about 60% ... V2 510 Shorty Extension
    The taller ones give you full-thumb access..... 510 Battery Extension

    Hey Blu
    where are you getting those adapters? I got a few of the V2's in silver or plain plated finish and the threads are really bad. My tanks do not fit right because of the threading.

    Tnx...!!!

    dshark - I think I got them all at MadVapes .... the short black one is just nail polish over a silver one. They have a longer black one, but couldn't find short black. :)

    I was afraid of that... I have the same short ones from MV too and the threading is not real good. I bought 3 of them and all of them have the same problem. I use DCT tanks/cartos with them and they never 'seat' properly. The cartos themselves seat and fit nicely in the GLV's but not when using the V2 shorty.

    I think Good Prophets has some, and a bunch others ..... I googled to try and find short black ones, so you could look around. :)

    Thanks Blu - I placed an order for some. Hopes are that the threads are of better quality.

    Thanks again.

    I rec'd the Good Prophets order for the extentions. They do have much better threading and my carto/tanks no longer rock back and forth like they did with the others. They also have a flat button style connection on both ends - battery and carto/atty sides. This caused a bit of a problem in the begining as I couldn't make a solid connection. So I took my trusty dental pick and used it to pull the carto connector down some to make the connection. It worked...!!! Thought I would mention that in the event someone else got the same extentions from GP.

    Have a great vapin day..!!

    Hey stevenluther .... which tanks? Phiniacs?

    Phiniac regular tank = regular sized Boges or generic carto
    Phiniac Tall-boy tank = Boge XXLs or phlanged DCCs (maybe 1/8-1/4 inch out the top or bottom)
    Phiniac XLs = Kanger XL or Resurrectors

    Of course if you use a longer carto in the tank, punch it high, and leave the extra out the bottom, you don/won't need an extension.
    You can see here a guide - Tank Sizes & Cartos - Phiniac Rugged Pyrex Glass Tanks

    Most tanks that I know of will run off any carto, the length of the carto is the variable you deal with.
