A vape tank sits on top of your vape mod, it holds eliquid and your coil of choice. When your eliquid is heated up and vapourised, the vapour travels through the tank and is then inhaled by the user. Since May 2017, the maximum liquid capacity of a tank is 2ml, apart from that the sky's the limit in terms of design. Tanks are generally grouped into two categories - sub ohm and plus ohm. Sub ohm tanks are used at higher wattages and produce more clouds and generate more flavour, if you vape with nicotine, we recommend an eliquid with a nicotine content of no higher than 6mg to be used in these direct to lung tanks. Plus ohm vape tanks are recommended for new users and those who are looking for a discrete vaping experience. Also known as mouth to lung tanks, they are intended to be used at lower wattages with high nicotine eliquids. We stock a range of both plus ohm and sub ohm tanks, from respected manufacturers such as Smok, Aspire, SMOK, Innokin and KangerTech. For the advanced user, we offer a range of rebuildable atomisers - these devices allow the user to build and mount their own coils. RDAs provide a vaping experience that few other pieces of hardware can match. Please note that a rebuildable of any kind should not be used by anyone without a deep knowledge of vaping and Ohm's Law.
This one of the most basic methods of vaping. This is where many beginners start their vaping life. The Cartomizer is generally bought pre-filled, and then once you finish the e-liquid, you throw it away. They are cheap and normally found on devices you would buy in filling stations or convenience stores.
This is the next evolutionary step in tanks. A clearomizer was originally just a cartomizer. They hold up to 2ml of e-liquid or e-juice. The coil is removable, and the clearomizer is easily refilled. They were the most commonly seen on vape pens like the eVod beginner kits.
This is a higher-quality version of a clearomizer. They are normally made from stainless-steel and have glass tanks. The coils are replaceable like a clearomizer, again since TPD the tanks capacity is normally 2ml. They have a 510-thread connection which is used on most mods or vape pens. This will also be your first introduction to air flow control, with most Vape tanks having an adjustable bottom or top air flow.
Sub Ohm Tanks are like basic tanks, but the coils inside are much lower resistance than regular coils. What does this mean for you? The coils can handle higher wattage and will produce much bigger clouds of vapor. You’ll also be able to use higher VG e-liquids which have better flavour profiles. You’ll need a more powerful mod to take advantage of sub-ohm tanks. There are some fantastic sub-ohm tanks and mods available ready to use. They’ll cost a little more than regular mods and tanks, but the investment is well worth the added cost!
This is where vaping takes a little turn. You’ll need a little bit of knowledge before you attempt RBAs. RBAs are like other tanks, but instead of replacing your coil with another stock coil, you buy a separate RBA kit to match your tank, there are a choice of RBA decks most companies like SMOK offer a choice of RBA kits from single coil to tripple coil RBA decks and then you wrap and build your own coils or you can buy Pre made coils also, you will also need to buy Vape cotton. By building your own coils, you can customize your vaping to suit your requirements while also reducing the costs associated with buying new coils.
RDAs do away with tanks altogether. Instead of filling your tank, your drip e-liquid or e-juice directly onto the coil when you want to vape. You build your own coils just like you would with an RBA. RBAs, RDA, and RTAs aren’t for beginners. It’s important to understand what you are doing when you make your own coils.
This is like an RDA. It has a small tank or bowl surrounding the atomizer or coil which allows a small amount of e-juice or e-liquid to be stored. You get all the benefits of an RDA, without the hassle of having to drip so much. You still build and wick your own coils just like you would with an RBA. RBAs, RDA, and RTAs aren’t for beginners. There is a great choice in the RTA Tank range, MTL Style (Mouth to Lung), as well as Sub Ohm. Most also have a choice of build decks.
Mouth to lung or MTL tanks, are e-cigarette tanks with restricted airflow simulating more traditional smoking. Vaping this way can increase flavour production as opposed to open airflow sub-ohm tanks. Mouth to lung vaping is also ideal for use on the go as they typically require minimal wattage giving you much longer battery life and produce significantly less vapour than open airflow tanks.
Why are there so many different types of tanks and atomizer heads?
The answer to this is essentially "choice". The speed of technical development means that we are able to provide a wealth of tank and atomizer head combinations, that offer many different features and performance characteristics, and also let's not forget "looks".
It's common for vapers to own many different tanks, rotating between them. We aim to support as best we can with a huge variety of atomizer heads and information to help with maintenance of your favourite combination. Tanks are the natural evolution of electronic cigarettes. When e-liquid started to become more available and accessible in 2009, development started to provide users with devices that could be easily refilled and hold more fluid to complement the increased battery life that newer products delivered. The first tank device was the Tornado Tank. It is probably more relevant today to refer to this device as a "cartridge" not a "tank" device, but the terminology goes back to 2009. This product was instrumental in transforming product development. Development continued and has led to a range of tanks that have their own characteristics. Ultimately though the basic principles are relevant to all tanks. They simply provide both a means of holding the e-liquids and they contain an atomizer head which is mechanically and electrically designed so that the combined device can be connected to a battery or power unit. The basic differences are simply defined by considering some primary characteristics:
We stock a range of tanks for all pockets and budgets from combined tank and atomizer units to our high end range.
Due to TPD regulations the maximum capacity of an e-cig tank is capped at 2ml. There are tanks that hold less than 2ml, but there are no longer e-liquid tanks bigger than 2ml.
Most tanks are designed to work with specific atomizer heads. The type of atomizer head contributes significantly to the performance and type of usage.
Certain atomizer head and tanks combinations are optimised for standard Tornado type 3.7V batteries, others are designed to work best on variable voltage or variable wattage devices.
Let's not forget style! Most of our tanks are available in different colours and many with special design features which allow for users to choose a tank that not only meets their vaping needs but also their personal style.
You will see compatible atomizers / Coils listed under "Coils" on the product page.
