    hey guys i havnt seen a formal list, so thought id get one started, ones i know are tank friendly are:
    bwb backo
    applewood backo


    a bunch have cinnamon in it but seems to be very little, anyone know ones that are for sure friendly or not tank friendly? i am not for sure, but i would think the cola is not tank friendly. i just ordered conundrum and orchard frost are these tank friendly? chip in with whatever you can, ill try to keep up and update a master list, moderator, feel free to edit this if i slack off or forget to look back!

    Orchard Frost is lovely in a tank. I only have one tank to dedicate a juice to, and it has Orchard Frost in it. I wouldn't expect any Backwoods juices to not do well in a tank.

    Conundrum is amazing in a tank as well. Never a problem.

    I agree, Conundrum works excellent in a tank. So does Honey Flue Nut and Bluebacko. Although it doesn't help much, RY4 and Ejoker work great as well. No cracks or leaks whatsoever with any of the flavors mentioned:thumb:!

    Orchard Frost always in my tank, no cracks or leaks at all, it's been in there (refilled countless times of course) for probably 2 months. Only other juice I've had with menthol or cinnamon in my tank was ejoker, and it wasn't in there for long as the juice preffered my lungs instead.

    I haven't tried cola in a tank yet, but I'm loving it in a stardust which I believe is made from the same material, and no cracks or leaks yet and it's been almost 2 weeks.

    On another note, I think they should make 30ml tanks specifically for BWB...

    I have just tried the Orchard Frost in a tank, I'm wishing it wasn't empty now. I have to admit I was scared to try it at first... But it turned out to be amazing!!!!

    Numerous threads on this all over the forums, I can't think of it off the top of my head (everything at least) because its extensive, but certain juices with cinnamon or citrus have been known to crack tanks but thats for a certain kind of plastic, also people having issues with too high vg not wicking with one hold punched cartos or flooding with too many hole punched cartos. Theres a whole list of juices known to have issues cracking tanks, somewhere in these forums, the search function works miracles...

    Ok ok I'll do it.... :mail: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/atomizer-cartomizer-tank-discussion/219179-lets-make-list-juices-flavors-crack-tanks-ce2s-clearos.html

    Cinnamon is the #1 offender. I vape menthol/peppermint all the time with no probelms in a tank.

    Citrus appears to be a culprit as well. My fiancee keeps Casablanca in her tank a lot, so it's safe.

    I hate to be a reporter of a problem, but BWB's caramel cappluchino doesn't do well in any cartomizer I've tried. I suspect almost all darker juices have this issue and the darker juices I've used from other vendors do the same thing. So if youi are using one of those tanks with a punched carto I would think this one wouldn't wick well.

    Anybody have any reports on Strawberry or Watermelon in a tank? I just got a couple new bottles of them. I have put a little in my tank when I first got it but I haven't filled it up yet. I am a little nervous to after reading this thread.

    Strawberry wicks well in a ce2 and on a dual coil carto. I assume if it wicks in the dcc then it will work fine in the tank, but I don't use tanks so I can't say for sure. I don't think his strawberry has anything in it that could harm a tank. Have not tried the watermelon.

    Could be wrong but I think the cinnamon issue has come before and it's cinnamon oil that carries acid that cracks tanks. I believe Don has said he doesn't use cinnamon oil.
