    It might be worth the shot. I just wish they were more readily available.

    The problem might stem from using cartridges that have a filler. As the liquid level goes down, a harder puff is required to draw the liquid from the bottom of the cartridge (some of which is trapped in the filler material) to the atomizer. There was even a scientific journal article published on this topic. E-cigarettes require harder puffs--study | The Money Times

    When I switched to a tank model, I found the vapor production to be very consistent.

    Tanks can be nice once they are "broken in" but it's heartbreaking to spend that much and have the atty in it die. I keep ending up back with a drip tip and inexpensive 510 attys. No wasted liquid left in filler, atty never dries out and if one dies you don't have to toss anything but the atty. They need to come up with a tank with replaceable attys!

    Ok time to clue me in again... What are you talking about,replacing an atty in a tank? I have a homemade 306 atty tank that is unreliable at best. Its a Madvapes DCC tank converted to accept a 306 with a hollow 510 sleeve used to control flow.

    Also the HH 357s rock. Ive been running a couple of those for months and when one died 3 weeks in Avid Vaper replaced it for free. Those make 510s look and performwell lets say less than favorable. Next is the AVAs.

    Have a look around at any of these:
    - Vivi Nova that has screw in atomizer coils/wicks
    - CartZiLLA 3rd gen with replaceable inner body
    - Or the eGo-C style with replaceable atomizer heads

    I am the Atty killer- I can kill one in 5 minutes and then one might last me 2-3 weeks- depends.
    I also don't use a tank- don't like carto's...I just stick with Attys and all I use are bottem feeder (Reo mods)... I like EM attys for the LR (1.5ohm) w/ 3.7V Reo's but 2.3 Joye 510 attys for my variable volt Reo Woodvil- I do find they tighten up after awhile- take a 1/32 inch drill bit and drill out one of the air holes in the atty and I'm good to go for awhile again.

    I started with a basic 510 mini e-cig...my gums and teeth hurt from trying to suck on it too hard- wasn't getting enough nicotine to satisfy me. Then I went to a Reo- no in between stuff or large investments in different mods- this was a great choice for me. Started at 36mg e-juice and tapered to 18mg (1.8%) now...still go through about 6-7ml of juice a day.

    I couldn't imagine being restricted to little e-cig cartridges again.... I know that may be what we will be allowed, but with rebuildable attys becoming more prevalent, I think it's not going to be long before I have them working on my Reo's- the big question is will I be able to continue buying e-juice? I personally am not into sweet "kiddie" flavors (sorry folks), but tobacco flavors so it doesn't bother me personally if they restrict these but most people aren't into tobacco flavors and it would bother me immensely if these were taken away from the choices that other vapors need in order to stay off of analogs.

    Honestly, I'm the clueless one here. I've only had one tank (a gift) and when it stopped working I thought the atty (or whatever is in it that heats the liquid) had died and it was therefore useless. Can you replace those? It was a style that was one piece that screwed right to the eGo or VariVolt battery. I suppose there are others that actually attach to a separate atty? Like I said earlier - I have ventured much beyond an eGo with a drip tip on a 510. I also got a 306 atty once (also a gift, lol) with a drip tip and I have to admit I loved the vapor and taste but it leaked a LOT.

    I got a very large 510 carto once (could have been a tank, I don't know - it was also a gift) and didn't like it at all. I just can't tolerate dealing with filler anymore. It seems like it holds way too much liquid back and then gums up. When it died it was nearly full and I lost all that liquid!

    Oh, I know a bunch of you all swear by the HH357- I liked them to but never got one to last over a week for me- I just can't afford $20 a week for an atty- at least if I kill one that's $4-$5...No biggie... Another reason rebuildables need to come on full force!!

    Are you talking about the vision line with the stainless top and bottom, like a ce2 type of deal? Just a thin toothpick center post with a white cup on top and two thread/wicks hanging inside.
    I also will not do filler either.

    Krisin really isn't into the e-cig "hobby" ...
    However, her ECF birthday is coming up in August
    and I'm sure she would enjoy giving some options a test drive.
    :p

    Yes, as ton of great options out there- enough to satisfy anyone who wants to stay off of anaolgs...
    That's why we need to keep all options open and not let the Gov take these away!

    I think this was the cartomizer: Clear Colossal Dual Coil Cartomizers

    And I THINK this is what I was calling a tank, but I guess it's really a filler-less cartomizer: Giantomizers

    Guess I never really had a tank separate from the atty - do they make them threaded like a 510?

    TD, you have to send them back and they will replace for free. They did for me after like 3 weeks.

    All the ones I mentioned are 510.

    ETA: well, technically the last one only works on a raised 510 connection since it's an eGo w/skirt.

    Right- I tried that- I could send it back after a week and he would charge me $10 to rebuild it- I said "no thanks." If you got him to rebuild it for free for you, then you did better than me. I even cared for mine "to the t" like he said to on his site. Oh, and not to mention I would have to pay for shipping to and from him (besides the $10), so once again, "no thanks." Others have had better luck than me and love these- more power to them!!!
