    I currently do MTL and quite pleased with the results.
    I ordered the Innokin Oceanus which came with the scion tank, so thought I would give it a try. Seems to produce large clouds and fairly good flavor at 75w but leaks terribly.
    Came over here looking for an alternative and find the forum flooded (no pun intended) with complaints about leaking tanks.
    I have 2 Endura Endura T18, one T22, 2 Aspire minis and a nautilus 2 for MTL and none of them leak, ever.
    I am getting the impression this is primarily a Sub ohm tank tendency. Am I wrong? Any suggestions?

    @whodat2112 is the Scion tank expert, maybe he can help and you won't need a new tank. He goes to bed early for work, may have to wait until tomorrow for him to check in. Take a look at the Tobeco Super Tank 25 in the meantime. I've been enjoying the Fireluke with the 2.5Ω coil. Kanger Toptank is good. My cousin has the Eleaf Ello and Sense Mini Blazer and enjoys both.

    I would say in general DL tanks have bigger holes. Larger juice vents larger air vents, so when they do leak they leak a lot more. DL tanks also tend to be much more touchy about wicking. There’s generally only a couple mm at most of tolerance in wick length, and wick diameter isn’t much better. So they’re both easier to make leak, and when they do it’s a bigger problem.

    Now if we are talking rtas I would suggest the OBS Engine line. I prefer the Nano, single coil, but the original dual coil gets love too. Both top af, 5ml, side fill, and easy build deck. Pretty forgiving where wicking is concerned as well.

    No matter what happens, don’t throw away or recycle the Endura and N2 tanks, lol.

    Kanger top tank looks about right.
    Can do either DTL or MTL depending on coil.
    I have some new coils coming for the scion, give it one more chance.

    Just to complete the story, new coils arrived today. Installed with new o ring, made sure air flow closed, filled with juice and left in a cup.
    It's leaking into the cup.
    Headed to the bin.
    I will try the Kanger.

    I'm partial to the Original Uwell Crown tanks. I've never had one leak, and I use three of them. Can be used for both DTL or MTL with its ratcheted air control ring. I recommend the 0.5 ohm coils.

    The new Falcon tank by Horizon. Got it recently and I haven’t been this impressed by a tank in a while.
