After releasing the original protank, there was a change of the well-made clearmonizers. It was the first one but it was not perfect. The imperfection was mainly on the separation of the seal between the pyrex tank and the base and the shearing off of the threads on the connection. From the customer’s feedback above, kanger released the protank 2 with the following advantages:
- Any 510 drip tip can be used
- No worry about the tank cracker juices
- The atomizer heads are replaceable
- Cleaning is easy
- No leakage
- All the parts can be replaced
Kanger Protank 2 corrected two major imperfections in the original protank; has a standard 510 drip tip and can be easily disassembled making cleaning to be super simple. However, the tank also has some disadvantages:
- Gurgling occasionally when it is less than half full
- Since it is made of glass, it is easily broken if dropped
- The beauty ring lacks in the package
- Not all of the 510 tips fit
HOW TO FIX GURGLING
Gurgling can happen as a result of spilling some juice into the centre tube while filling or a severe change in temperature. This can be fixed by wiping with a cotton swab. This is done by first removing the drip tip then twisting the cotton swab into the tube at the centre until it presses against the base of the atomizer. Once the cotton is pressed against the base, the base is unscrewed and the atomizer is withdrawn. Once the atomizer is withdrawn, the cotton is pushed upto the end of the centre tube, sealing the tube therefore avoiding accidental spills through the tube. After filling completion, the cotton swab is removed and the base and atomizer replaced.
Fixing by adjusting the airy draw. The protank 2 like the original protank also has air channels cutting into the base therefore it draws air from the top of the 510 connector up through the atomizer. If all those are exposed, the draw will have much air than if the beauty ring is sitting tightly on the base. Sealing one or more of the air holes or channels will also help in tightening the draw on the protank. The air holes are not supposed to be sealed all at once since this leads to the protank not functioning. Instead, the air channels are supposed to be sealed one at a time until one gets the desired air draw. Teflon tapes and hot glue are used in the work of sealing the holes.
