    Hope someone here can help me find a tank that is similar to the Tobeco Super Tank RBA but with a larger tank capacity.

    I have found that the design of this tank is the most reliable for temp control. The posts being integrated into the bottom cap as opposed to a rebuildable atty that screws into the bottom cap, I believe makes for a better connection which is required for temp control. Other tank designs with a screw in rebuildable atty do not seem to consistently, make a solid connection.

    I have two of the Tobeco Super Tank RBA's but would like to find a design with a larger tank. The Tobeco is only 2.5mls, I think. Or if someone knows where I can find a tank upgrade for this Tobeco, that would be great too.

    I bought 2 of the Tobecos for $15 each and would buy more at that price if I could find them... These are great little tanks.

    That's surprising to hear you say.
    my experience (and that of many others) says that offset, 3 post decks, like the Supertank, are incredibly unreliable for temp control.

    Offset coils mean that one leg is longer than the other when placed over the airhole. This gives inconsistent resistants readings to the board on your mod, and often results in a "hot leg".

    I'm glad that you have had good luck with your Supertank, but if you are wanting a reliable temp control tank, you should check out some of the newer offerings with 2 post designs, or velocity style decks.

    Both of the tanks have been rock solid. My bother has one too and my results are repeatable every time, on all three tanks. I use NiFe30, 7 wraps on a 2.5mm screw, dual coils comes out at .07 ohms. Every time.

    I have used the Smok TFV4 dual & single RBAs, & the Kanger mini RBA. Both of those have been inconsistent as hell.

    I will say the post design on the Super Tank is a pain. With the 26 gauge NiFe, if screwed too tight, you will cut the wires....

    Spaced coils, no hot legs. Ever. I love this tank. Just need a bigger capacity.

    No experience with the tank. Just remembered seeing a crazy cheap huge tank at the same place where I bought my crazy cheap ZMaxes. Thought I'd just bring it to your attention. Only rebuilding I do anymore is my Evod-ish tanks. Just so darn simple, ya know. I hadn't even noticed the mention of the silica wicking that came with. Only silica that ever worked for me came with my FT mini dripper. I'd probably toss it and rewick the free coils with cotton.

    There are many tanks that use the same basic design as the supertank. Billow, Goblin, Cthulhu, just to name a few. Most are from the last "generation" or two.

    As temp control is becoming more popular, the inferior 3 post design is starting to phase out and become replaced with 2 post and Velocity style decks.
