    Recommendation Needed for a Good Cheap Cartotank

    I have been using X8 and AGR+ with standard Boge LR 2 pre-punched carto for some time. I think many of the AGR+ owners are sick of leaking as I do. I heard that Terminator tank and Who is your daddy tank are really good (in fact I think Who is your Daddy 5ml is better made) but their prices aren't making my wife happy at all. there are some negatives on terminator not being a secure tank due to its sliding problem.

    I have little clue of how much a good non-leaking tank should cost but if I am paying something like Who is Your Daddy tank/Slap yo mama tank (or teminator) why shouldn't I get a Reactor or ERA. They almost the same price in SS version. I have also checked on Siam mods tank but they mostly sold out. Again, they have slding problems just like terminator.

    Id there anyone out there have bought a good cheap non-leaking pyrex tank? Appreciate you share a link or a youtube so I can get rid of AGR+ sooner.

    Cheers.

    All my tanked r from IBTanked - Get Tanked With Us!. Pyrex glass and ss caps min $22.50. I never get any leaks, they r nice and flush and caps r slim. They do coloured tubes for $5 extra and also cater to different carto tank width sizes like 19mm and 22mm. 19mm sits perfectly on the provari for anyone curious. Cheap spare o rings and washers and also shipping is only $6 international.

    I find the smoketech Pyrex DCT tanks are great value, around $13. Holds 5ml and no leaks at all. Bottom flange cartos lock in so screwing on and off is easy holding the tank, no sliding issues either.
    The smoketech Pyrex UDCT tanks are also great too, just a tad smaller holding 4ml.
    The only problem is with DIY hole punching - they are a tight fit so just the slightest deforming of the cartos from punching can make sliding them past the holes difficult. Even harder to get off than on have needed pliers a couple of times!
    If you can use the slotted tanks then this is preferable but I have trouble finding them with bottom flanges. I did however find some triple punched cartos from ecigmodshop that worked really well, holes are not as small as some but would love them a bit bigger.
    I also got some cartos a few weeks back from vape bar that are drilled much bigger than anything else I've ever seen, about 3-4 ml diameter, as big as you could ever punch them yourself if not bigger. Unfortunately you can't get them with bottom flanges and the lowest resistance is 2.0ohm. I still use them in the DCT and UDCT tanks even though they don't have the bottom flange as sliding isn't possible on my vamo or svd if you have the top rings on.
    As many cartos and suppliers there are out there it funny how much trouble you can have getting your ideal carto, like I can get the holes I want but can't get the bottom flange, or if I get the flange I cant get the holes so I have to punch them and then they are a pain in my favourite tanks!

    Just received my first clear tank with SS caps from IBTanked. I have to say: wow~
    Very easy to fill the liquid, no leaks. I have to say I am impressed.
    Ordered 2nd one for Mrs' SVD.
