I use DCT tanks from apollo here is a link http://www.apolloecigs.com/Dual-Coil-Tank-Cartomizer-p/adct.htmso you can see them. I'm very happy with them and easy to us. a bit pricier, and you can get replacement cartos.

this is the 3.3ml version they do make larger ones. I think its great. Very solid, and easy to fill i slide the carto up till theres a little recess and drip into that slid back up and its full. The caps have the seals on them and also have a ridge so they only go so far in. They also fit standard size boges perfectly.



Wow!! i never knew I could get them elsewhere...AND IN STAINLESS!!! awesome! Thank you!
If a man is all alone in the woods, and there is no woman around to hear, is he STILL wrong?

I have a Texas Tough Tank on the way. Not sure why I got it, as I've never really cared for tanks, and the other one I have and almost never use anymore. Funny thing is, the other one I have is an M1A1 from notcigs (maker of the Buzz Pro), and it also has a side screw hole. I always thought it was a bigger PITA carrying a syringe, and then having to clean the syringe, than it was worth. I'm thinking I'll try out a needle bottle with this one.

As to the question about punching cartos, almost everyone has prepunched ones now, and some places even offer a several different punch counts (one hole, two hole, or three hole). Smoktech makes really nice single coil tank cartos that are pre punched and have a plate on the bottom to act as a stop for your tank. Great places to buy these are crystalclearvaping.com, and surevapes.com . Both have free shipping.

I've been looking at ibtanked.com for their cheap glass tanks. You can buy just the glass tank without the caps cheap on there. I was wondering about the sizes of the caps. ibtanked.com has 19 and 25mm tubes. Would be cool if they would work with other tank caps, as theirs are expensive. I thought it would be cool to etch the glass tanks and slap some caps on them for a custom job. I want glass because of Pluid leaching my plastic. Now I vape in in Vivi Nova with the metal tank. I'd like to see it though.

Ok so I picked up a few spare pre-punched cartos, but have to ask. Is there a danger to over-punching or over slotting? Chances are I'll slot my cartos, I think it will be fairly simple to do with a saw. If I over slot will I potentially get leakage? I'm thinking no, but I could be wrong.

I was wondering how their tanks overall perform, I know they're real popular for the glass they sell, but not sure about the tank.

I like the fact that the tank I have locks in the flanged smoktek cartos. SureVapes has Boge flanged cartos, which I think may work as well.

Yeah I'm only on my second fill up, but took me over two days to empty the first. My initial impression is they are a bit more miserly in juice consumption than clearos.

ALthough I can still say I still love DC Mega cartos for their price, My first one is still going strong after a month of use.

@ Mongrel you can flood them if you get too big of holes/slots there is also that plastic tube that runs down the middle if you cut that it will come out the bottom of the carto consistently. I only punch mine to the size of about a pencil lead. works perfectly for 50/50. Single punch.
