    Question Pro tank 3 shit ?

    Just got a pro tank 3 and can't seem to do shit with it.

    Refuses point blank to work on my Vamo 5.

    Also tried on an el cheapo battery unit and no joy.

    Are these things shit or am I doing something wrong ?

    Changed the coil but still no dice.

    stupid question: is the coil head touching the battery? I only ask because I had a cheepo tank that I had to fuck about with to get a decent contact between the two

    Stupid question and stupid me.

    Took the tank apart and put back together and it now sits fine and works on both my units.

    It's shit to be a newb.

    Are there any other benefits of a tank than the increased liquid capacity? Currently using a decent clearomiser with exchangeable wicks, but am interested in what they do etc...

    There's five benefits that spring to mind almost immediately:
    1. The coil sits in the bottom of the tank, so irrespective of how much liquid is in them you'll always get a decent draw. With a clearomiser you have to keep the wick immersed or you'll burn the coil out if your not careful
    2. Tanks don't leak if you tip them upside down as the liquid sits around the breather piece and is sealed by a grommet at the top of the coil. When I used a clearomiser, the fucking thing would leak like a bastard if I fell asleep and it tipped upside down.
    3. Price. Granted the initial investment in a tank is a few quid. I use a mini tank, I think it was about 7 quid. But you can offset that eventually with the price of replacement coils. They're @£1 each, whereas a clearomiser, when I used them was @£1-50. You can also take the coil out, and break it down and clean it if you're that much of a miser.
    4 Volume. A clearomiser holds 1.6ml from memory. A mini tank holds a bit more, meaning less refills.
    5. Sexyness. A chrome variable volt battery and a chrome tank looks good enough to shag

    4 Thanks given to I Black Belt

    Looks like you ended up buying some quality kit then. I think too many new vapers are put off and go back to cigs by buying cheap crap that doesnt work very well.

    it's trial and error really. The more you use them, the more you learn. I'm not saying my set up is the best, but it's the best for me. - Until I find something better
