    Mods and Atomisers for the Tradie

    I have a GGTS with an Ithaka. I've dropped it onto concrete countless times. I throw it in my side case on my motorcycle, no need to worry about weather it is upright or not, it wont leak.
    While it is great, I miss the genesis style atomisers at times. They just aren't practical when your main transport is motorcycles.
    It's not just genesis style atomisers, everything I've tried outside the golden greek brand isn't practical.

    So, what is out there, preferably in the genesis category but also interested in everything else, that is virtually indestructible and wont leak even if stored upside down with constant vibration?

    Heron or spheriod with fluff.
    Spheriod and a micostick are a great work setup.

    Try a squonker with a hellfire atty, mesh wick. As close to a genesis as you'll find

    If you could just store it upright while you're on the bike you would have a LOT more options. I really think it would be much easier to modify the way you store your setup during transit than it would be to find an upside-down-leakproof Genesis atty.

    A couple of us tube mode fans have used lightly modified pencil cases from Officeworks for this purpose.

    The only other thing that I have found that doesn't leak is a good carto tank but probably not your thing

    I think the invader is built like a brick ideal for the tradesman

    While this is the most practical solution, I'm just not the most practical person. I own three bikes, so I'd have to jig something up for each of them. then when I sell one and buy another, make another mount, I'd end up spending almost as much time as I do working on my bikes, building vape holders

    I was initially going to agree with you, though thinking about it, this might be an option. One of the downsides with the Ithaka is if your coils gunked up but you have no time to rebuild it you're stuck with a shitty vape all day. The genesis style, you can take the cap off and burn the gunk away in a minute.
    Carto tanks win the convenience vote. Link me up on some leak and drop proof options

    I haven't looked at anything on the market since 2013. I've got to say, it's like you're speaking a different language!
    I googled all the mentioned gear, looks good but not really what I'm looking for.
    An 18650 and a 4ml tank get me through the day, I vape a bit too much at work to be dripping and like the convenience of not having to carry spare batteries or juice.

    Nextasis genesis atomiser sounds like a good fit for you if you are looking to go the genny route. Zero leaking adjustable air control although i would say still fairly restricted by current standards at most open settings. Solid build quality, not sure if you would be able to pick one up new now though. So would have to search the second hand market. 5mil tank capacity with the stainless steel tank fitted.
