    I haven't gotten a protank yet. Got a couple of these as X8 kits using the X8 tanks from fasttech. Also using an MT3S on mine (w/adapter)
    The kit was $24 and you can get the battery alone now for about $12.
    Ran with this one in the woods last weekend and it's holding a charge pretty good. Also have been comfortable enough to rinse the connection with straight tap water when my wife has a flooding issue on hers.

    Wow, that cheap? I went ahead and ordered from MFS as I didn't see a better deal - all the kits I looked at were around seventy bucks. I've grown overly fond of my vivid nova anyway, and don't care to try a new tank at the moment.
    Its actually my boyfriend that has the protank. I guess he read somewhere that you just need an adapter to get the connection. Should have the batteries by Monday :D I'm super excited to have a long lasting, durable battery. I spend a lot of time in the woods, also and my little 600mah ego-c ain't cuttin' it!

    I just got my X6 in the mail yesterday, and I like it. Nice weight to it, not too heavy and not too light. The design feels great in my hand and its comfortable in the pocket. Great little unit.

    Gorgeous!! :wub::hubba::thumbs::w00t::pervy::banana:

    My man & I ordered one from Fasttech abt 2 wks ago cuz we loved the way they looked and the reviews were outstanding. However, I'm worried that the voltage wont go high enough for my tastes. I already want more than what I've got at a mere 4.8, I'm thinking the 4.3 might make a big difference. Let me know abt that if you wouldnt mind :)

    I have it on the medium setting 3.8 and it's perfect for me. The high setting 4.2 gave me a burnt taste with my protank.

    So I got two of these(black and silver) because i wanted a vv and I wanted something I could carry with me all day WITHOUT needing to carry an extra battery.

    The life on them is great. my first one was DOA but the company I bought it from was only 2hrs away from me so they had one shipped in 24hrs. Feel on the battery is great, love that it has the gaps on the top for airflow.

    I was using a protank with a 2.5ohm head, but I was getting a burned flavor, no matter what setting I had it on. Ordered some 1.8 ohm heads, now Its not making a connection with the battery or something because I can't get it to work. when I put it on a standard ego battery i'm blowing monster clouds, great flavor. with the X6 I get nothing. any suggestions?

    I've tried taking the head off and screwing it back on, fidding with the connection, tighter, looser etc. is this why they say it "may not" work with the x6?

    Edit: fixed it, the connector is a little short, so if you pull the pin out just a hair it works fine.

    Yeah, we've had no issue with the protank on the X6. I usually have to pull the pin up after charging, anyway.. no biggie.
    Got the X6 back in June and its still going strong. I've gone over 48hrs without charging, and it wasn't low when I finally plugged it in. I love the feel of it, and its super easy to use. I've dropped mine a few times with no real damage.
    On the other hand, my boyfriend had his X6 separate in his pocket. He does physical labor, though, and always has the ecig on hand. He was able to screw it back together and its fine.
    Definitely a great battery for a great price.

    what about charging issues? there is a disclaimer that says

    ***Since the sleeve/well surrounding the eGo threads is so deep, these batteries may require a charger with a shorter sleeve. However, these short sleeve chargers will still work on any other eGo style battery.

    ***This battery may not work with the KangerTech Protank

    I read the fixes for protank but still wondering if i need a different charger?

    i think the ego twist is a better device than this is. not that this device is bad. this device is a fine device if maintaining voltage isnt all that important. with a twist, youll get consistent voltage. with this, not so much. but some people arent looking for consistency, just a nice form factor might be all theyre after. and this device certainly delivers on that. the device looks nice, you guys' setups look sharp.

    when you say pull the pin up, you mean in the atomizer right? I hope I haven't been screwing around with the wrong thing this whole time, lol

    does anyone know how to tell when this thing needs a charge? does it blink a certain way? I got one from Fasttech and it came with no instructions, thx

    When you push the button to vape it will blink when it's time to charge.

    I received mine the other day and after a little fidgeting, it works great! Don't really like the tank that came with it though.

    Funny enough, mine died as I was reading this thread, so I can confirm you get 10 fast blinks when it dies. There is no low charge indicator, though, so you won't know when it's about to die, only when it does die.

    hey, i'm aware this is an older post. what is the best tank to put on this that you can take apart/replace parts/add funky drip tips to? how are you all getting on with yours?

    It got passed off to my wife and she uses eVod and mini pt on it. Works great just like that.
