What is a Vape Tank?
Vape tanks are tasked with holding your e-liquid and the element that heats it up to produce vapour. The tank screw into batteries, and there are a huge range of them available to meet a host of needs. There are three main types of vape tank available. Clearomizers have wicks to absorb the liquid and send it to the coils. Glassomisers work in the same way, but the part that holds the juice is made from glass rather than plastic, helping you avoid corrosion problems (plastic can sometimes react more to heat or certain types of juice, whereas this isn’t the case with glass). Cartomisers have a filament made from cotton or a cotton-like filament rather than wicks and can normally hold greater amounts of juice. Which type of tank is right for you will depend on your personal preferences.
The tank encapsulates a whole lot of pieces:
- Drip tip - the bit that you inhale through - these come in different diameters and material. You can customise this part on certain tank models if you want a different shape, material or colour too.
- Top cap - the lid on the top of the glass or plastic tube section to hold your juice in there.
- Tube - the transparent part of the tank that holds your juice, usually made of glass or plastic.
- Atomizer / coil - the coil sits within the centre of your tank and heats your favourite e liquid to turn it into vapour.
- Tank Base - the part that goes on the bottom of the tube and usually has a 510 connection which screws into the battery.
How does a clearomizer work?
Clearomizers hold your juice and heat it to transform it into vapor (with the use of the coil that sits inside them). You normally need to pour your e-liquid into the clearomiser itself, with the liquid travelling down a tube which is connected to the wick. This then soaks up the juice and sends it to be heated by the coil, which is powered by the battery. The vast majority of clearomisers have bottom coils, though some have double or top coils. Some tanks have larger capacities than others though due to TPD in the UK they’re all now 2ml as standard.
What features do they actually have?
Tanks are underrated as far as the amount of options you have with them - choosing the right one depends on how you vape, the effect you want and the kind of juice you’re using.
- Adjustable airflow - this little feature means you can swivel the vents on the tank. Located either at the top of bottom of the tank depending on design, increasing the airflow will give you better cloud production. A more closed vent will create an experience more similar to smoking as you need to drag on it harder and will deliver a more potent flavour.
- Leak-protection. With variable PG/VG ratios sometimes your juice is more viscous than others, having good leak protection with the use of rubber o-rings means you can safely put your vape in your pocket or bag without worrying about getting juice all over the place. No one likes a sticky vape after all.
- Designed differently to accommodate different styles and resistance coils - depending on whether you want super low sub ohm coils, a standard coil or even multiple coils for a super-boost on your vapour production. Many of the tanks we stock also have something called a 510 connector. This is the little piece of threading on the peg at the bottom of the tank. It serves to screw your tank onto your battery and is how charge flows from one to the other. The beauty of this is that many brands have the same 510 connector feature so you can swap out your mods - combining a SMOK tank with a Vaporesso box for example.

What is the best vape tank for flavour?
There are many features flavour-chasers look for when selecting vape tanks for flavour. Bottom-coil clearomisers have a great reputation when it comes to flavour, as do sub ohm tanks. Opting for a rebuildable atomiser can be a wise move when you have built up sufficient vaping experience. Cotton (it should always be organic so it’s chemical free and safe to inhale from) is also a favoured wick material for boosting flavour, and it always helps to store your e-liquid in dark, cool areas to help it retain its taste.
What’s the difference between MTL and Sub Ohm?
The main difference is the technique used to vape. A mouth to lung tank is best for ex-smokers wanting something that can be dragged on in the same way you would a conventional cigarette, drawing vapour into your mouth first then down to your lungs. They’re typically what will deliver more flavour as well. sub ohm tanks on the other hand are beasts at producing huge amounts of vapour, and come with super low resistance coils.
