    BCC vs carto tanks

    Hey guys,

    I been messing around with BCC's and rebuildables for ages now.

    I have not used a carto for yonks! (and i don't have any left as i gave them all away)

    Wondering if someone can give me a good indication of which gives better flavor (more for a newbie friend who wants to get into vaping who is not on the forum)

    I know carto tanks a lot easier and less hassle than something like the VO BCC.

    But which gives better flavor? a carto, a dual coil carto or a BCC?

    Cheers

    MMM

    (yup, stupid question, but i don't have something to compare to get a definitive answer and i haven't used a carto for a year)

    Not a stupid question (thank you for those cartos!) I love my cartos, but I also really love the BCC options.

    I think it comes down to flavour being different in bottom coil devices vs cartos for me. I use only certain flavours in cartos and only certain flavours in bcc devices because they taste better that way.

    Example:
    My White Beard Tobacco juice: To me it tastes like crap in a carto, but it tastes amazing in my comet clearos.
    My Samba tobacco from VK: Tastes bleh in my bcc's but tastes superb in my cartos.

    I think it really depends on the juice and the personal tastes of the person.

    Thanks Rynxa lol i feel like a noob asking this Q hahahahaha. I have not used a carto in so long i forgot what they are like. I am actually curious to try dual coil cartos (yeah thats how long i have not used carto's for! i stopped loooooong ago)

    I am thinking a BCC for my buddy is gonna be complicated since you have to remove a wick if the juice is too thick and the condensation issue then also the feeding issues which is combated with draw technique (found if i take hard and long draws on the VO BCC i stop dry hits, but to a newbie who has nto gone through genesis, silica rebuildables different attys etc might find confusing)

    looking at my vape table all i see are scattered silica rebuildables, genesis tanks (which have a lot of dust on them lol) and BCCs not one carto in all 6 of my draws. I was thinking of getting him some smoktech UDCT tanks and some dual coil cartos but i don;t even know how they perform compared to what i have so i can;t really recommend them to him if i haven't used them before.

    The juices he will be vaping (when he gets his gear in) is VK5 and he has some fruit ones from me Again, don;t know what they will be like in a carto so i don't. Just looking for a general rule of thumb. I always thought that the VO BCC was a great tank and this clearomiser gave great flavor (it has so far with me) but going through vaping cobra site and it said that clearo's aren;t as good in flavor as cartos (not sure if this is the case with BCC ones). I always thought BCC's gave cleaner flavor than a carto but reading his page made me think and i was like...i haven;t used a carto in ages to be able to tell anymore! hahahaha

    I think some of the long top wick clearos are kind of rubbish compared to the bottom coils and cartos. VK5 is pretty amazing in a carto, it's what I vape it out of. Maybe your friend could try the Comet clearos? I know they don't hold much and maybe a syringe filler is too complicated for a newbie :/

    Get some cartos lol. They are pretty idiot proof and most tobacco juice tastes really good out of them. If he doesn't like it maybe try a Kanger T3 or VO BCC.
