    If I could get IBTank to send me some XL glass replacements, I'd be OK for a while. I guess I could try calling them, as they don't come here anymore and their website says the don't answer email from their site anymore.

    I'd call first, then order. The couple times I called, they were pretty responsive.

    If you get any info on why everything is out of stock please let us know. I'm really hoping they will restock.

    It's sad to see IBTanked having issues. They always had great service and reasonable prices. Just good folks. I went to their site Friday to order some replacement tank glass for my KF4's, and saw that they were bare bones, and I wasn't going to get what I needed.

    Fortunately, I found Spectrum Tanks online, and they were just as helpful as I was used to from IBT. Prices are a bit higher, but customer service comes with a price I suppose.

    As far as carto's go, I was the same way for a long time. Had my brand, and nothing else came close. On a whim, I picked up an R91 when they were all the rage, learned how to rebuild, and haven't looked back. Not sure if it's helpful to you OP, but I do recommend rebuilding. The overall long term costs are far less, and there never a worry about finding your favorite.

    I, as well, was a long time cartotank user. I also preferred the 35mm 2ohm flanged smok carts. I moved to RTAs (Lemo Drop, than Lemo 2, URBA, etc.) and left the cartos behind (I gave my last like 80 to a user here). I now only use my tanks for out and about, and drippers at home, though I always take one dripper with me. I have found the flavor from a RDA to be way more satisfying, with richer denser clouds, than my cartos could ever provide.
    I know it can be hard to move on, but I strongly suggest getting an inexpensive RDA/RTA and giving it a try. No more dud cartos, no more leaking with pressure changes (well the Lemos and other vacuum style tanks do, but I've stopped using those as well, just the URBA and an Avocado - which are basically RDAs with a tank below), takes about as long to rewick as priming a new carto...

    Learning to rebuild will let you control how you vape and in the end is much much cheaper. It takes a little while to adjust and find what you enjoy but it can be done and worth it IMHO.

    I run a couple cartos and tanks, but have rebuildables as well, with spares for everything. I'll always have something to vape on.

    Longtime (years) cartotank user. My favorite carto were the Ikenvape Platinum punched. They were quite popular, and often were out of stock. I used IBTanked cartotanks, too.

    Usually didn't have problems with quality control from Ikenvape, but the last order had five bad cartos back to back. Since I had started to rebuild coils for RBA's, I told myself that was enough. I'll be rebuilding exclussively from now on. Haven't used a cartotank in almost two years.

    I have a lot of rebuildables I use, but still like cartos, and have three mods set up with cartos, and tanks. I have boxes of cartos stashed away, and continually add to the stash.

    I didn't think anyone used them anymore...

    Which tanks ended up being your favorite? The S&P seems like a great tank?

    Just an Istick 30. At 6W, it's an all day battery for me. I guess I'll have to try the S&P.
