Carto Tank User
I figured I would try these as a replacement for my standard Smoktech 2.0 ohm single coil tank cartos that are getting harder to find these days. Well, as a long time carto user, I'm just not all that impressed. I installed one in one of my IBTanked tanks, let it sit for 30 minutes, and then fired it up on my Radius with the same settings I use for my standard cartos (8 watts). Instant burnt flavor and weak vapor is what I got.
So I thought, okay, maybe I'm pushing it too hard or it was a dud, and I should give another shot. I emptied the tank, installed another one, filled the tank and let it sit for another 30 minutes. This time I lowered the wattage to 7 watts before firing it up, and it wasn't awful (burnt) but the flavor was really muted and vapor production was very weak. So I decided to up the wattage in .2 watt increments to find the sweet spot, but there wasn't a sweet spot (for me anyway). Somewhere between 7.4 watts and 7.8 watts the flavor started leaning toward burnt and the vapor production was still pretty weak. I ran about 2 ml through it just to be sure I wasn't judging the breaking-in period as the overall use, but no improvement overall.
So anyway, taste and vapor product usage is subjective so take my review as just one guy who didn't really like this product. I somehow had it in my head that it would be equivalent to a carto but easier to fill and maybe lasting a bit longer. For my usage, they don't come close to a decent carto in a pyrex tank. Thankfully I have a nephew who really likes these so he's going to be getting the rest of my stock while I seek other possible replacements for my beloved cartos.
