    STV nova 3.5ml leaking, what's a cheap alternative?

    So after using and overusing my 2.5ml nova tanks for a long time I thought it was time for some new ones. My old novas were very reliable so I thought I'd get novas again, so I got STV 3.5ml novas from healthcabin. And they are great, at first, but they keep leaking from the bottom. Not the very bottom where the tank screws onto the battery, but from where the bottom part of the tank screws into the tank cylinder. These are also tasting bad sooner than my old novas.

    So what's a cheap alternative that will fit on standard ego batteries? I just want something cheap and cheerful that won't leak. Leaking is probably the biggest thing right now, me and my partner are trying to quit and having all this sticky liquid leak everywhere is putting him off vaping.

    Protank 2 BDC, 1.8ohm coils. Cheap replacement coils, good vape, battery frugal on an ego,

    Where's a good place to order them from? I'd like to order a lot of them at once if I can find them cheap. I just want to stock up and be good to go, feeling kind of burned after these leaking nova tanks. They were on sale at healthcabin so I'm guessing they aren't genuine, but I'll still need something new if I will convince the partner to give up cigarettes for it :P

    There is a site that compares Aussie prices for you called vapeassist.com

    They are a good resource to see all the vendors and pick the ones you like. If you want multiples why not approach them for a bulk price.

    Oh....I knew they were advertising but for the now it looked comprehensive.

    It looks like esmokestore has the cheapest protank mini 2 at $8 and the cheapest coil replacements at $1.40. I'll order maybe five tanks and a bunch of coils, probably not enough to ask for a discount. I've never had a tank made of glass before so it'll be novel too.
