I am not really fussed about the 0.5ohm coil but the tank looks nice and apart from the issue I just mentioned I do really like the Aspire tanks. The flavor from the BVC coils is very good (when I actually put in a decent juice!). Would they really make a new tank that only has 0.5ohm coils? That cuts out a massive part of the market! I would like to think they will release a range of coils for it at least going upto 1ohm? Who knows. I don't really want to buy a new mod but I would like to get a tank without issues. Maybe you could recommend one? It needs to be easily available in the UK and the replacement coils too. The bigger the capacity the better too. I don't want to be messing around with anything smaller than 2ml.
I was put off Kangertech straight away, I bought a Kangertech pro mini 3 with my MVP2 and to be honest it felt very dry and flavorless from day 1. I think the bigger versions use the same coils so I am very put off by it. There don't seem to be a massive amount of other options really. And I am not ready to start building my own yet, I don't have the time.
So yeah, tank recommendations please.
I've been sticking mainly with Bottom Coiled Clearomizer types for the last year and a vendor just tossed in a vertical coiled clearomizer when ordering a pair of starter kits and an eGo CE5 1100mah battery with a clearomizer in a bubble pack with usb adapter only. The vape from the vertical coil is far superior to the long wicked top coiled since the DCT type design allows for intake holes along the length and not really seeing any wicking issues. That was a freebie there however.
Now for the main tanks I run regularly on the eGo type variable batteries and even the MVP and VTR as well as the v3.0s I run with the Smok Tumblers and 2ohm coils either Smok or Kanger Protank II which will also work on those. The newer Smok T-Dux 4.0 is a 4ml tank over the 2.5ml but still takes over 3ml Tumblers while they won't surpass the Tumblers as far as the flavor intensity. The T-Dux 2.0 is a small 2ml size and there's a couple of other small T--Dux models.
The SMOK HBC tank is a 5ml and comes usually with a 1.8 ohm coil which is where you want to be. The vapor output is more over the Tumblers while that sags behind the 510 threaded T-Dux 4.0s as far as how the barrel shaped tanks overall seem to lose out. The Tumbler has more of an egg shape that maintains an even vape. When replacing the 1.8 ohm coil from the T-Dux 4.0 however I ran into the same problem I saw with the Smok HBC and Solid piece plastic GBC 4ml tanks as far as not so great. Each tank runs best once you know which resistance is prime for that type of tank.
Now for a UK vendor carrying the Tumblers in the variety of colors one vendor stocks them with the HR 2.4ohm coils that are best when turning up the volts but not the ideal like the 2ohms seem to be.
Smoktech Tumbler BCC Tank Clearomizer
And here's another vendor with only the clear tanks with the 1.8ohm LR coils instead of the standard 2.4 or 2.0s which seem to be growing in popularity with more vendors seeing 2 not 2.4 I have been noticing lately. Smok Tumbler Tank BCC
Now some vendors will have the Tumblers shown as 3.5ml tanks while Smoktech and others have it as a 2.5ml simply on how you fill it. For a the short tip on most bottles of eliquid you have to tip the tank once turned upside down to a 60 degree angle while more will go in when using a needle bottle with it at 90 degrees instead but watching not top it off right at the tip of the air tube or get some up in your mouth right off!
And that's one problem seen with far more tanks and clearomizers not from design but either overfilling or a flood in the coil, DCT cartimizer, or atomizer. That's when you hold the button for a few before taking each hit until the saturation drops off. It can taste nasty at times depending on what flavor you have in the tank! Fortunately when finishing off what was in one bottle with the help of a needle bottle I was right even with the center air tube but not one drop came last night on a Tumbler I packed good! It took several draws to get it going however once there was space for air intake.
