    Does anyone know if Dragonfruit is on the list of plastic tank crackers? It's either the Dragonfruit/Liquid Amber combo or Evods are sincerely craptastic lately.

    I don't know if it's on the list, but it is a tank cracker - every reputable vendor that has it in their line up warns about it.

    I have to get out more. I had no idea. Thanks! I'm glad it's not the Evods. :)

    I obviously can't speak for everyone but dragon fruit is my favorite liquid. I don't buy it I get it from a local person that makes it and thus far the best flavor I have tried.

    I have only been vaporizing for close to a month but a friend of mine has been smoking dragon fruit for months before I even started and has yet to have any problems with his tank and I haven't had any issues. We are both using the ego ce4 models and nada just FYI

    Vaping Zone super concentrate is very nice.

    All I can think then is maybe it's the evods and maybe it's not. Sometimes I have to use a pair of pliers to open the tank to fill it, I may have squeezed too hard and cracked the lining I guess. This recipe is relatively new so it's hard to tell.

    I recently mixed up some tfa dragon fruit and found cracking on one my Kir Fanis tanks. Wasn't sure which juice to blame. Now after reading this it just might be the one.

    After today I'm 100% convinced it's the Dragon fruit. Just to check, I filled a brand new Evod with my Amber Dragon mix. It took 7 hours before the Evod was leaking like a sieve. No more for me until the Davide gets here. :(

    Glad you mentioned it. I got a free sample of the TFA with my last Wizard Labs order. I usually use a ProTank or ProTank 2 but I also use DCT tanks. Glad to know before I munched one of them with it.

    I'm not using TFA, it's VZSC at only 1%. Maybe it would be fine in another clearo with thicker plastic but after trashing 2 evods I'll just wait for the glass.

    That's good to know Glasseye, thanks!

    Since this is one of my favorite flavors and I planned to get the VZ SC sometime soon, I'll have to keep that in mind! :thumb:

    I've had TFA dragon fruit in a Evod for weeks without any problems. I had it in other plastic devices before that, (ce4, iirc) never noticed any issues.

    Me too SueGeo, must just be the VZ SC version?

    I doubt it's the alc in it causing that either, wonder why it does that when other brands Dragon Fruit doesn't!

    right here
    I haven't had a problem with the vapingzone sc dragonfruit yet. I use it at 2% in my recipes and use it in my CE4s. The TFA version hasn't cracked a tank yet either.

    Aye!

    Maybe it's not the Dragon Fruit at all then and Glasseye is getting cracked EVOD's by holding them too tightly or in the wrong spot when refilling, so they are cracking easier than expected?

    I've cracked a clone EVOD because I didn't realize how thin the plastic is under there, I assume Authentic ones might be a little thicker but I don't think that would be as thick as a solid plastic tank like CE4/5 ect. So it could be what I mentioned above, or just due to EVOD's plastic being thinner than other thanks, or a combo of all that :)

    LOL! I'm going with the combo, but I'm fairly sure it's not my Crush Armstrong grip. Totally just aged myself right there.

    Maybe I should try the TFA version? The VZ one is just so tasty.

    I think in the interest of science (and dragon fruit lovers) I'll fill up a T3 today and see how it goes. They're pretty much the same thickness and the CE 4s I think. Plus I'm jonesing for some, science just sounds better.
