Getting a tank mod seemed to be the natural progression for my vaping. With tanks holding 3ml or more of e-liquid, my vaping comes a bit closer to low maintenance. Dripping atomizers and cartomizers still have their place, but for the majority of the time, I grab one of my favorite tanks and go for non-stop vaping.For the most part, a tank mod will accept either a 40mm or 50mm(XL) total length cartomizer. Some may come with their own “proprietary” type cartomizers, like the SmokTech DCT’s flange (BTW, you can still use a cart without the flange on these).For my tank mods, I like to purchase cartomizers in bulk, and punch my own holes.Tank ModThe Tank Mod Five…a tank for any occasion.SmokTech DCT TankTankSmokTech Dual Coil TankThe Dual Coil Tanks (DCT) from SmokTech are probably one of the best values in the market for tanks right now…and one of my favorites.Even though they come with a flanged cartomizer for use, Shan from VAPECORE suggests flipping the end caps and using a non-proprietary cartomizer.And it works like a charm!Name: Dual Coil Tank Size: 3.5ml / 6ml Tube: Clear or Colored Polypropylene End Caps: Black Delrin / Chrome Cartomizer Total Length: 50mm XL Price: $10.00 – $15.00 Website: Vapor AlleyDepth Charge TankDepth Charge TankThe Stainless Steel Depth Charge is a little pricey for a tank, but it is well worth it. It looks great, and with the angled end caps, works on some of my mods where a flat bottom wouldn’t fit.These can be a little messy while filling though. I always seem to get a little seepage while re-installing the top cap.Name: Depth Charge Size: 2ml / 4ml Tube: Clear Polypropylene or Stainless Steel End Caps: Stainless Steel Cartomizer Total Length: 40mm / 50mm XL Price: $50.00 + $10.00 for Stainless Steel Tube Website: Vapor AgeM1A1 Buzz TankM1A1 Buzz TankWhen I purchased my Buzz Pro, I had to have the matching tank as well. Price wise, it’s in the middle, without sacrificing quality. They come in a multitude of colors that match the Buzz Pro’s, as well.The tube has a plug that screws against the cartomizer, minimizing slippage, and is removable for easy filling.There is also a tube option without the plug.Name: M1A1 Buzz Tank Size: 3ml / 5ml Tube: Clear “UNCRACKABLE tube material” End Caps: Aluminum Anodized in various Colors Cartomizer Total Length: 40mm / 50mm XL Price: $24.95 Website: NotcigsLil Mama TankLil Mama TankThe “Lil Mama” Tank Mod is the smaller version of the “Big Daddy” Tank from Big Daddy Vapor. Another middle of the road at price point, but extremely well made.The Lil Mama tank is made to provide a very tight fit with carts. Because of the extremely tight fit, it can prove a little difficult when inserting a cart.Name: Lil Mama Tank Size: 3ml Tube: Clear Polycarbonate, Pyrex Glass, or Stainless Steel End Caps: Black Delrin / Stainless Steel Cartomizer Total Length: 40mm Price: Delrin – $18.99 / Stainless Steel – $30.99 + $14.99 for Stainless Steel Tube Website: Big Daddy VaporLava TankLava TankThe Lava Tank is an extremely popular, and hard to get tank mod from JonboyUSMC on the E Cigarette Forum (ECF).Making Lava Tank’s in batches, they are snapped up in mere minutes. Because there is no website, (selling is through ECF), it takes patience awaiting a new batch, and persistence in making a request once a batch of Lava Tank’s go live.Name: Lava Tank Size: 3ml Tube: Clear or Frosted Lexan End Caps: Various materials and colors with one piece Pawn or Ming tip Cartomizer Total Length: 40mm Price: Around $45.00 Website: JonboyUSMC’s Lava Tank If you’re looking for a tank mod for your pv, definitely give one of the above a look, they’re all awesome in their own ways.5 Responses Mike February 6, 2012 Hi.. I just know.. What kind of cartos you use to the M1A1? Just recently buy one and with my regular XL cartos I only get that the M1A1 start licking..

KarS June 20, 2012 Hey,Just wanted to know which drip tips are attached to the Depth Charge and Lil Mama tanks, and where you got them.Thanks, Kartik TUC June 20, 2012 The drip tip on the Depth Charge is a stainless steel available from Super T Manufacturing. The Lil’ Mama is topped off with glass from Trippy Tips…simply the best! Quail January 30, 2013 Where do you recommend buying tank cartomizers in bulk? (Specifically flanged). Thanks for your input!
