I recently received a frosted glass tank from Jared of jRad Melts. He custom makes glass tanks, drip tips, and e-liquid bottles out of Borosilicate, and can etch any design or logo requested. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, you can view my interview with Jared.
Poly-carbonate, or plastic tanks, are known to deteriorate over time with the use of many e-liquid’s. These e-liquids can leave behind a white film or ghosted appearance inside, and can even lead to cracks.
This is where a quality glass tank really shines, as they are immune from these negative effects. Plus, they just look better!
What I think of the glass tanks from jRad Melts
These tanks are uniform, smooth, and polished with attention to detail in every aspect. Quality and craftsmanship is top notch, and look great. But how do they perform? Not a single leak! Not only are these big tanks that hold a large amount of e-liquid, they contain it without leaking no matter what orientation it’s in.
I tested this tank upright, upside down, and on its side for long periods of time, without a single drop of e-liquid escaping.
Sure, there are plenty of tanks on the market, but there is something to be said about having a hand made custom item. Whether it’s a mod, or a tank, nothing seems to come close to an item that has been created from an individual, and the tanks from jRad Melts are no exception.
- Construction – Quality borosilicate glass ensures you can safely vape any e-liquid.
- Aesthetics – Frosted, clear, or etched…these tanks are a great addition to any mod.
- Capacity – Holding approximately 6.5-7ml of e-liquid ensures maximum time of vaping before having to top it off.
- Convenience – Tanks are naturally a convenient way to vape throughout the day.
Final notes on the frosted e-liquid glass tank from jRad Melts
I really like this tank. Not only is it a looker, it performed flawlessly…not one leak. This is a large capacity tank, so it may look awkward if trying to marry it up with a smaller device.
