If you are like most people, when you first started vaping, you would start off with maybe some of those cheap gas station e-cigs, then later moved to something that has a bigger battery so you could vape longer without having to recharge it.   Once you move to a ego type or some other battery mod, you will probably find yourself wanting more eliquid in your electronic cigarette, so you do not have to top it off every few hours, or so.

That is when you may want to start looking at the larger tank systems.  Now is the time you should check out the vivi-nova tank.  If you do not like how large it is, there is also a vivi-nova mini.  However, you will love the vivi nova if you give it a chance.  I did, and love it.  It holds about a days worth of smoke juice, and you can vape all day and not need to refill it.  That is great.

The vivi-nova is also very easy to fill compared to a lot of the other tanks out there.  It hardly ever leaks, and when it does, it is likely because the atomizer untwisted a bit when you took the lid off to fill it.  Simply open it back up, tighten the atomizer and your set.  I have only had that happen once or twice in the last 6 months. So it does not happen often.  And this is about the only tank that I have ever used that does not flood and gurgle.

The do have a plastic tube for the main tank body, so using pure VG e-liquids, or spicy things like cinnamon are not recommended, because they will fog the tank and melt it over time.    You don’t want that…  but a 50/50 blend or even a 40 pg/60 vg, should be okay to use.

You can get them with just the clear plastic tube, or you can get a metal cover that goes over it, in many different colors.  I have blue, and purple, but found that I prefer using it without it so I can see my juice level.  Go figure…  I spent an extra buck or two for that cover and they just sit on my desk.  Your mileage may very with that though.  I do see a lot of other people that do use the colored covers.  If they had the gold in stock, I would have likely got that.  There are a lot of colors to choose from.

As for the atomizer, it is super easy to change out.  You get the 2.4 ohm one installed when you open the box, and have a 2.8 and a 1.8 ohm to use also.  When it begins to clog, if you use darker liquids, or if it begins to have some leakage, it is likely time to change the atomizer out.  I get a week or two out of mine easily.  Many times I get 3 or 4 weeks.   It really depends on how hot you vape (voltage) and if you use a thicker dark juice.  The darker ones seem to leave a residue that builds up on the coil, and eventually blocks the air flow, and does not vape as well.

To change the coil, you just vape all the e liquid out, or suck it out with a syringe, then unscrew the the tank body, then unscrew the top of the atomizer from the post in the middle.  Put a new one on, and tighten it good, then put your body back on, then fill with your favorite smoke juice, and put the top back on, and your back to vaping in just minutes.   I usually buy 3 to 6 coils at a time.  Some places give discounts for orders of 10 or more, but I have not done that yet – just saying, there are deals out there that help with costs, if you look for them.

A definite must have for your arsenal though.  You will be glad you invested the $13 to 15 bucks. It is well worth it.  It is a lot more economical than spending 3 bucks or so per clearomizer when they only last a few days to a week at most.  The replacement coils for the vivi nova tank is less than $2 each.

Almost all vaping stores carry them so they are pretty easy to find too.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your vaping!
