    Toptank mini died - What next?

    Hey guys my Toptank mini just took its last hit and now reads about 160Ohm at the 510 regardless of what i do even a full short on the RBH reads the same , something in the base/airflow has failed and i tried unscrewing it but started to bend the 510 so i feel its time to give up on this tank

    I was thinking about grabbing a replacement from fasttech next payday or somewhere local if the price is right but then i wondered if there might be something better out there in the same price range

    The biggest complaint i had with my tank before it died was building coils , i love doing it but lacked the room to do what i really wanted with the wire i was using for example a vertical 0.5ohm with 28g would hit the chimney so i think i need something bigger then the toptank

    For now i have a coral RDA i ordered and i've built a 0.4 dual coil from 26g and that's hitting really nice but its been proven to me that i need a spare tank or two around the house in case anything happens , Any suggestions would be great

    Well a lot depends on your vaping style and preference for coils as well as your overall budget.

    There's a plethora of rebuildables out there both cheap and expensive most these days a for DL inhales but there are a few for MTL.

    So more info and I'm sure peeps will start suggesting stuff.

    Really big builds make me think mostly of RDAs: tanks are mostly going to limit you in size out of necessity. In between would be possibly an RDTA, something like the Avacodo 24 would be a big build deck that gives you the convenience of a tank.

    Another fan of the Avo 24 here. Easy build and great flavor.

    Got a couple of clones incoming. Figured at about $12 why not try them.
    Midrange is a TONE...not a 'drink driving' trophy... please help explain that to the kids.....

    Got one in my shopping cart. Let me know how they compare to the original?

    Looking at them you'd have to wonder if they came off the same machines .

    Dismantled and washed them before I left for work so tomorrow I'll build one and fire it up.

    I have the avacado 24, nice and easy to build on and good flavour, also got the griffin rta; if you dont wick it correctly it tends to leak, it is still easy as to build on and gives decent flavour
