Harmony, do you think the tanks are a better idea? Do they have similar blockage issues? Thanks for the tip Rocco. Should I be soaking them in alcohol or Isopropyl for better results. And Morandir sir, I would love to see your video (although I wouldn't wish the clogging onto anybody).
Tank vs. smileo is really a personal preference. I find they both have their uses, pros and cons. I prefer tanks for my all day every day vaping. The replacement cartos are cheaper. I like not having to fill my cartos every so often to make sure they don't burn (I'm lazy). With the tanks juice is constantly fed into the carto as you vape and you can see when the juice is getting low so you know when to refill (I'm a visual-type person). I'm not a chain vaper and I vape about 1-3ml a day so one tank lasts me 2-3 days without a refill. I carry 3 tanks around with me and I can forget to refill them for a whole week and never run out (I'm very scatter-brained and forgetful
). I use smileos when I travel by plane because the air pressure changes will dump a tank and when I'm traveling I don't want to worry about anything. I want something I can stick in my pocket and go, refill when I get back to the hotel and they're ready for the next day. The Zeus and smileos are perfect for that IMO.
One of the cons about tanks, you're carrying around juice so if there's a leak or a crack or a busted o-ring there are mls of juice wasted all over your pocket/bag and anything in the vicinity. In the 2 years of using tanks I've had this happen once and it was during use so it only got on my hands, pants and PT. So I've had pretty good experiences. As Mr. Morandir said tank cartos also clog and burn like any other carto. It depends on the juice you use and your vaping style, plus the random dud carto.
