    Quick question.. I saw that it was prudent to order the drip shield, and though all the posts I've seen about it are usually for atty's only, I imagine the theory is still sound for cartomizers, correct?

    That led me to ponder how a drip shield would work with a tank, since the bottom of the carto is submurged, and only the connector / threads are exposed..? I guess you just take your chances with tanks?

    and while we're talking tanks.. why hasn't someone machined a flat-sided tank to use with the darwin yet..? Just half a cylinder, with a flat side, so it would close.. someone get on that?! :laugh::2cool:

    Yes, drip shields were intended for attys, but yes you can use them with cartomizers, too. They don't really serve their intended purpose with cartos, but they do tighten up the draw a bit which some people like :) No way to use one with a tank, though, nor is there any reason to. If your tank is leaking enough to even consider a workaround, then there's a problem that you should be troubleshooting instead of avoiding ;-)

    Thanks! I've had cartos leak a little before, so I wasn't sure, just ordered it to be safe.. You're right about the tank.. I've never really had one leak, so I guess it's a moot point.. :)

    Now to wait on the postal service to delivery the Darwin..! fun times..

    Nah, just a tiny bit too big for the arm to close all the way, but it did work pretty well on there and wasn't too top-heavy like with some tanks (Odysseus on a Darwin is just plain unwieldy, it weighs more in full mode than the Darwin does)
