    Fasttech is calling these tanks X8 electric cigarette atomizer. It's a carto tank with chrome caps & a screw in fiil port. It also has a screw horizontal in the bottom cap. Wondered if anyone has used these yet. I assume the bottom screw holds the carto in place. I read a discussion on this tank at the F.T. site and someone mentioned if the bottom screw is out it will leak down the center post. I wondered what that was about. Another thing is the top fill port hole is tiny. When you remove the screw the hole wont fit in my regular syringe I use which kinda sucks. I don't really want any sharp syringes around the house but want to use the fill port how it was intended. Any tips would be welcomed.

    Ok so I found a solution. Litecigusa sells thous pointy plastic spouts you put on your bottle of liquid replacing the original drip top. That works. Cool little tank and very heavy. I tuses standard not XL cartos.

    Have half a dozen of them, been using them for over a month. Love 'em! Need a needled bottle to fill them, which I have anyway. haven't really tried to use one with out the screws, although I had lost a screw, just switched it out for the fill screw and stuck a toothpick in it. Standard cartos is correct, non-flanged. Initially, these came with pre-punched, single hole cartos (the homemade style holes) but they are now coming with laser drilled holes.
    Looks great on the KTS (GG China Clone), and has a short stainless steel drip tip.

    The carto it came with wasent bad either. I tried one with 1/4 tank of liquid figuring I'd toss it quick and decided after a day to fill er up.

    So will a boge reg carto fit the x8 ? There is a 5 mm difference between the carto that comes with it and a reg boge? Also will this tank stand taller then my agr2...?

    Yes. It fits just fine. The carto it comes with isen't half bad. I ended up using one and it's working well.

    On my X8 tank, after I used up the original 35mm non-flanged Boge 2.4 ohm single hole, single coil carto, I switched over to using 45mm long Smoktech dual hole, single coil, 2.5 ohm, FLANGED cartos. They work just fine, plus it raised my driptip 10mm.

    Been using one for about a month now with boge carto... Doesn't leak but I don't not like the fill hole even though I have the cap with blunt needle... The carto that came with it was DOA.. Read 9.9 on vamo numerous times and wouldn't fire.. Should a checked the resistance before filled the tank up :banghead:

    So how do you get these things to fill? (the initial fill was not a problem) I tried last night with a needle tip bottle. When I squeezed the liquid in it all leaked out the bottom of the carto.

    Of course it would .. So how do you effectively fill these?

    does anyone know of any alike tanks that secure the carto with a knob at the bottom. i have the x8 and i love it. recently it has been a pain to fill though so i restored to the classic method where you pull down the carto and simply fill the tank. all things considered its an awesome tank

    I had the 9.9 issue on my Vamo, too. All you need to do is pull the center pin back up on the Vamo (I used one of those tiny screwdrivers for eyeglasses) and you're good to go. :)

    I do the same thing and it works fine. I don't even use the "set screw" to hold the carto. You can grab the longer carto to screw it on your PV. Make sure the filler screw is in place though. Mine will flood instantly if you take a draw with the filler screw removed. The new ones only ship with one screw anyway according to Kamry. Mine only came with one screw.

    Used a needle tip cap from Mt baker vapor.. Sucky thing is that I haven't found one that will fit a 30 ml bottle only the 15 ml bottles.. I haven't had issues with mine leaking at all.
