    So I had the Tobeco super mini tank from years ago. I bought the Smok pro color kit but was going through coils for the big baby beast tank every 2 days. I decided to use Tobeco tank which was better but hard to draw. I then got the crown OG after debating between that and the Smok Prince. The crown coil lasted only 3 days cuz I had it unlocked in my pocket and accidentally upped the wattage to 225 and took a fat hit. My daughter then convinced me to buy the Smok Prince and I’m going 1 week strong with this coil minus the gunk from this juice.

    I now have 4 tanks filled with 4 juices. I was looking maybe getting the rebuildable tank next but I hate building. My brother has the cloud beast and swears by it but when I tried it I found the Prince to be much better.

    Am I the only one with a tank addiction?

    The thing with building is: it's as hard as you make it out to be. Can be as easy as doing a few turns of wire around some round thingy you found in a drawer, screwing the coil down and putting your cotton in. The coil itself will last for months, with occasional dry burning and rewicking.
    There's many tanks now that work well with a simple build, for any style of vaping.
    The main advantage, besides being dirt cheap, is you can adjust your build to your taste which is impossible with premade coils. If you're a direct lung type it will most likely also save you battery and at least a bit of juice.

    Pretty sure you're not the only one with a tank addiction, but I'm not one of them. I have more of an RDA addiction :D

    Doubtful!
    Currently have 6 OBS Engine tanks of various styles (1 Engine Sub, 1 Engine and 4 Engine Nano's).
    I might get more this summer... I mean, I still have mods to make!!!

    No you are not alone. LOL. I enjoy the variety of different tanks. RTAs are a lot of fun and I think every vaper should know how to build a coil, given the status of vaping at the moment. It's worth the time and investment. Like many things (e.g. DIY) it can be as simple or as complicated as you make it.

    I think I have this particular disease as well.
    My current stable of Tanks is
    2x Griffin 25 plus
    1 zeus
    1 aspire revvo
    1 OBS engine nano
    on order are
    Aromamizer Titan
    and the themis both versions.
    And I'm vacillating on whether or not I will invest in squonking and their various rdas.

    I always keep a variety of tanks on the principle I may not be able to find coils that aren't out of stock or I may break a tank.

    Since I have convinced myself that some juices can vary significantly in different tanks with different coils/power, I have multiple tanks with specific juices assigned to each. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :D

    Kudos!
    all of us who survived the fear of stocking supplies to last us __ __years started to have extras.
    I dont build, hope I dont need to. I have enough in replacement tank glass, O rings, coils, wick,
    Wire,etc,etc,etc
    So long as your gear stash doesnt go bad, its really just batts & fresh liquid!
    Cheers

    I’m getting convinced to do this. I used to do this but it’s been a few years. Where do you get your pre made coils and are they deck specific? Also what wicking material do you use? I always found hemp to be the best for the drip setup I had.

    I use premade ones from Geekvape, no idea where to get them as i buy em in stores + i'm in canada so shops aren't the same here lollz.
    Deck wise you're not limited anything fits anywhere mostly, for example i use some fused claptons (3mm diameter, .22 0hms dual coil setup) they've been lasting me since about november/december can't remember exactly when.
    Wicking wise alot of people use cotton bacon, i use jellyfish cotton because it's softer to work with, but i don't recommend to a beginner as it stretches very easily and is harder to work with than cotton bacon.

    TLDR: use any coils in any rdas with cotton bacon and there you go, no need for specific tools imho besides for ceramic tweezers which i think are very important.

    AHAHAHAHAHAH:lol::lol::lol:....No unfortunately it dosen't taste bacon :p (would be weird with fruity flavors anyway :lol:)

    Though i don't remember what kind of atomiser you're searching for, if you don't mind a dual coil dripper/squonker go with a drop rda, best flavor i've gotten on many juices with this thing. Though you might want to look at RTAs for easier usage.
    RDA= rebuildable dripping atomiser
    RTA = rebuildable tank atomiser

    Biggest difference: one has a tank the other dosen't (unless you go the squonker route of course but that's anothet story lolz)
