    Had 2 tanks crack (explode) whilst on holidays .. why?!

    I am a Project manager by trade, so I by nature have spares on spares and spares

    I have never had an issue with my glass protanks .. rock solid

    Well dam me if I did put in fresh juice (just off the plane), vape for a few hours, put the PV down and CRACK SMASH! .. not once but twice in the last 48 hours. I am certain this juice is doing it, although I have been vaping the brand / flavour for months.

    Can any one advise what causes this weakness in the glass? it is really like the structure became really brittle.

    I am wondering if the fact the juice probably hasn't steeped long enough has anything to do it ... Any info would be welcome.

    throwing it out there..... Thermal shock? Impact shock?

    hard brittle objects like glass - known to shatter at the lightest of touches in the right way

    Damn stop vaping battery acid if it was juice that made your glass brittle then imagine what it would do to your lungs.

    A long shot here?? Thermal shock? What are you using it on? Outside to inside air con?? Dunno, but I will wager that it wont be the juice making the glass brittle.

    Hey Courage, I reckon you should buy a Nautilus...I used to use the protanks as you know, but IMO the Nauts are far better and now you can by replacement tanks from Vapeking.

    are you maybe,
    how do I say it in the nicest possible way,
    a little unattractive?
    then again I thought that's only mirrors that affects.

    Possibly a combination of air pressure & temperature differences from inside the plane to outside.
