In the following post, we've updated for 2023, we want to tell you everything you need to know, introduce the different options to match with your vape mod, and give you a few of our suggestions for the best vape tanks on the market.

Choosing The Best Vape Tank

Before we get into the good stuff, we need to cover a few basics. What is a vape tank? A tank is the component of the vape that holds the vape juice and contains the heating element. In most cases, tanks are constructed of plastic, pyrex or metal (stainless steel and anodized aluminium) and are screwed into your vape mod.

Cartomizer, Clearomizer, or Glassomizer?

While each of these options have many similarities, there are also many variables that make each of them quite different. Specifically:

  • A cartomizer is a tank that has cotton within the tank to absorb e-liquid and make it available to be heated by the coil when the battery is activated.
  • A clearomizer has a coil, but instead of using cotton, they have wicks that absorb the e-liquid. Clearomizers generally have reservoirs that hold e-liquid so that vapers only have to refill their e-liquid after several hits.
  • A glassomizer is mostly the same as a clearomizer, except that the reservoir is made of pyrex glass and not plastic. Unlike plastic, pyrex glass won’t erode over time as a result of the acidity in the e-liquid.

Pre-Built vs Custom Coil Builds

Coils are housed in the vaping tank. Most of best vape brands offer pre-built coils for their brand’s tanks - making it simple to replace coils by unscrewing the burned-out coil and easily screwing in the new coil. However, some more advanced vapers prefer to self build their coils, and prefer a vape tank with a buildable deck.


Vaping tanks accept coils at specified resistance levels. A lower resistance level often means more vapour production, while a higher resistance level is best for those who prefer a more contained vaping experience. Those who vape at lower wattages are typically comfortable with a higher resistance level, while those who prefer sub-ohm vaping usually use vape coils with a lower resistance rating.


Airflow is an extremely important factor when it comes to choosing the best vape tank. The amount of airflow your vape tank allows can completely change your experience while vaping. Some people prefer a limited airflow that more resembles the experience of smoking, while others enjoy the smooth hit that comes with a maximum level of airflow. Less airflow also means more heat - the more airflow available, the cooler the vape will be.

However, our staff members are some of the most knowledgeable vape experts out there, so we asked them to present to us their favourite tanks.

SMOK TFV16 Sub-Ohm Tank

TASTE: ???????????????? / 5
COIL LIFE: ⏱️⏱️⏱️⏱️ / 5

You couldn't have the best vape tank compilation without having one from the biggest vape hardware manufacturer in the world. SMOK is the most popular vape brand in the world. They've achieved that crown by consistently releasing new products which boast cutting edge vaping technology. By keeping a close eye on their competitor's innovations SMOK manages to ensure they never get left behind.

The TFV16, their latest tank release, adopts the very latest in Sub-Ohm vape tank technology. The SMOK TFV16 Coils use a new honeycomb structure which creates lots of small holes enabling improved vaporization of your vape juice.

The airflow slots on the coils have been increased to allow even more air to flow through them. Not only that the base of the tank has been significantly raised so that even more air can be drawn in. The result of all these tweaks is that you get much bigger clouds and flavour.

SMOK has also reengineered the Pyrex bulb glass so that the TFV16 can store a colossal 9mL of vape juice. With a capacity that big you wouldn't want all that lovely vape juice to leak away, so SMOK has implemented a new gasket to help protect against accidental leakage. To make the most of all these airflow improvements SMOK have also increased the size of the drip tip to 16mm.

TFV16 Coils

There are 3 coil options to choose from. The tank comes with a pre-installed 0.17ohm TFV16 Single Mesh Coil and an x1 0.12ohm TFV16 Dual Mesh Coil. There is also a new 0.15 Ohm TFV16 Triple Mesh Coil (sold separately) which has 3 different mesh holes to increased the heating area for quick ramp-up time. With all these improvements to an already hugely popular line of vape tanks the SMOK TFV16 Tank really is the king of the vape tanks.


  • ✅ Massive clouds
  • ✅ Good coils options
  • ✅ Huge juice capacity
  • ✅ No leaking
  • ✅ Good value


  • ❌ Not everyone loves the resin drip tips

Vaporesso NRG-S Sub Ohm tank has quickly become one of the most loved Sub-Ohm vape tanks in the world. Firstly you get a generous 8mL vape juice capacity with the pyrex reinforced bubble glass (5mL with replacement glass).

Refilling the NRG-S is super easy, simply swivel the top cap to reveal the large single fill port. When you buy the tank you get two coils, a 0.18 Ohm GT Meshed and a 0.15 Ohm Meshed GT4, and the options don't stop there.

Sold separately are other Vaporesso GT coils which range from 0.14 Ohm to 0.4 Ohms in resistance. Coils last a very long time and produce good flavour throughout their lifespan.

As you would expect from Vaporesso, build quality is excellent and there are a wide range of tasteful colour options to choose from.


  • ✅ Great coil options
  • ✅ Insane juice capacity
  • ✅ Low noise
  • ✅ Awesome build quality


  • ❌ Not as much flavour as other tanks listed here

Freemax Maxluke (Fireluke 3)

Freemax Fireluke 3 (Maxluke)

CAPACITY: ???????????????? / 5
COIL LIFE: ⏱️⏱️⏱️⏱️ / 5

If you want amazing flavour you need a Freemax Tank. Freemax Maxluke is the third in the Fireluke series and very much the best of the bunch. The coils contain Tea Fibre Cotton which wicks quickly and heats evenly to provide amazing flavour. If you have a favourite flavour when you vape it in the Maxluke tank you'll find it tastes even better than before.

When you buy the tank you get two Freemax SS904 coils, an X2 0.2 Ohm Mesh coil preinstalled and an X1 0.1 Ohm Mesh. The full range of SS904 coils include:

  • 0.15 Ohm 904L X1 Single Mesh Coils - rated for 40-80W
  • 0.2 Ohm 904L X2 Dual Mesh Coils - rated for 40-80W
  • 0.5 Ohm 904L X2 Dual Mesh Coils - rated for 20-50W
  • 0.15 Ohm 904L X3 Triple Mesh Coils - rated for 50-90W
  • 0.4 Ohm 904L X4 Quad Mesh Coils - rated for 40-80W

The refilling mechanism is probably the best in the industry. 3 steel balls slide the top cap backwards to show the large fill slot. Once refilled simply slide back the top cap and it locks in place. Vape juice capacity is 5mL.

There are two colour styles to choose from, colourful resin options and a metal (single colour) range. Resin tanks weigh considerably less at 52g compared to Metal weighing 62.3g. On the base of the tank is a beautifully knurled airflow slot where you can adjust to find the perfect airflow depending on your preference.


  • ✅ Best fill slot mechanism on the market
  • ✅ Amazing looks
  • ✅ Incredible flavour
  • ✅ Good coil options


  • ❌ Some might not like the resin colour range
  • ❌ Vape juice capacity isn't the biggest

Horizon Falcon 2 Tank

Horizon Tech Falcon 2 tank colour range

CAPACITY: ???????????????? / 5
COIL LIFE: ⏱️⏱️⏱️⏱️ / 5

When talking about vape tanks which deliver amazing flavour then you simply cannot ignore the Horizon Tech Falcon 2. Firstly the sector mesh coils feature a blend of wood pulp and cotton which provides amazing wicking attributes.

Coils have a unique design where the bottom of the coil is wide, for increased airflow, and the top narrows to condense the vapour for increased flavour and smoothness.

Replacing the coil has been made easier because the internal chamber can still have vape juice left in it for the change. Just hold upside down, unscrew the base, slot in the coil and re-screw the base.

Refilling is done by sliding back the top cap (which has good resistance to stop unwanted opening) and airflow is adjustable on the base of the tank.

There are 5 stunning colour options to choose from so that you can easily match it to your mod. One thing to note is that the tank kit only includes one sector mesh coil so make sure you order more when you buy.


  • ✅ Flavour has to be tasted to believed
  • ✅ Big clouds
  • ✅ Sector Mesh Coil design and performance
  • ✅ Excellent coil lifespan


  • ❌ Only 5 colours
  • ❌ Juice capacity only 5mL
