Top Choice Vape Tanks & Clearomizers For Mouth To Lung Vaping

Jacvapour S22 Tank

Jacvapour s22 tank
The Jacvapour S22 tank new release by the team at JAC and a very good one at that.

It’s a no nonsense design that is built to last. The S22 has a bottom fill design that allows you to change your coil with juice still in the tank. Always a good thing.

The tank also allows you to dabble with sub ohm coils as it comes with both a 1.0Ohm coil and 0.5Ohm coil. Of course the latter will need an e cig that can fire sub ohm coils.

In short, the Jacvapour S22 tank is a worthy contender when choosing a mouth to lung e cig tank.

  • 2 X Coil heads – 1.0 ohm and 0.5 ohm
  • Easy to fill
  • Solid, well built tank

Vapour2 Trinity Tank

vapour2 trinity vape mod reviewThe Vapour2 Trinity tank is an excellent tank for mouth to lung vapers. The exceptional build quality is backed up by excellent performance from the 1.2Ohm coil.

I used this tank for a number of weeks and two things hit home with me, the coil life and the fact I didn’t have so much as a drip of leakage. It’s top fill tank that is super convenient and also has a feature that allows you to close of the e-liquid holes when not in use.

Like many of the new vape tanks being released V2 have also included a 0.8Ohm coil that provides a slightly warmer vape and a touch more clouds. A good coil but not as good, for me, as the 1.2Ohm.

A tank you can’t go too far wrong with.


  • 2 X Coil heads – 1.2 ohm and 0.8 ohm
  • Easy top fill
  • Excellent build quality
  • Good flavour and clouds
  • Zero leaks in my time of use

Aspire Nautilus 2

Aspire nautilus 2 e cig tank
The Aspire Nautilus 2 is the latest addition to the Nautilus line up of tanks and in our opinion one of the best mouth to lung tanks yet.

Good news as well, if you are a user of the original Nautilus and Triton tanks, the Nautilus 2 is compatible.

Filling the tank is simple and easily done by unscrewing the outer tank cover whick also acts to protect the glass from any knocks.

Another excellent option from Aspire that should be considered carefully.

  • 2 X coil heads included: 1 X 0.7ohm and 1 X 1.8 Ohm Coil head
  • Easy top fill design
  • Great build quality
  • Excellent flavor
  • Compatible with Nautilus and Triton coils (Not Nautilus X)

Aspire Nautilus Mini

Aspire Nautilus Mini review
The Nautilus Mini by Aspire is not a new vape tank by any means but to this day it still remains one of the best clearomizers for flavor while producing a good amount of vapor.

The Nautilus tank parts can also be completely broken down making it easy to clean.

For those of a clumsy nature there are also metal sleeves available to buy separately that reduces the chances of breaking the Pyrex tank. The ‘hollowed out’ mesh sleeve looks fantastic.

This vape tank has a diameter of 18mm and a juice capacity of 2ml. A great first tank for any vaper. The 1.8ohm Aspire Triton coils are compatible and highly recommended for great flavour so be sure to check them out.

  • 2 X BVC Coil heads – 1.6 ohm and 1.8 ohm
  • 510 threading (If you have an EGO vape pen you will need an adapter)
  • Easy clean
  • Metal tank sleeves available to protect your glass
  • Compatible with Aspire Triton Mini coils

Innokin Endura T20

Innokin t20 tankThe Endura Vape pen (T18 and T20) from Innokin has been one of the best kits for new vapers.

Here we have the T20 tank that will of course work on most devices, not just the Endura kit.

Simple to use with good flavour and widely available. Another tank that’s simple to use offering good flavour and a good starting point for new vapers or of course vapers looking to add a MTL tank to their setup.

The only real downside is that it only comes with one coil, however, it is a well priced tank from the outset.

  • Comes with 1 X 0.5Ohm tank
  • Well built
  • Topfill design
  • Good MTL vape performance
  • Replacement coils widely available

Joyetech Exceed D19/D22 Tank

Joyetech-Exceed-D19-Atomizer-2mlThe Joyetech Exceed tank comes in two versions, the D19 and the D22. The numbers simply relate to the diameter of the tank in millimetres. The D22 is better suited to vape mods and the D19 vape pen style devices.

You can of course use them however you see fit though 🙂

We have recently reviewed both tanks with their respective kits and Laura-Ann and Michelle both found them to offer some good flavour and found them a welcome addition to the MTL tank scene. Add to this the easy top fill function and it makes for an easy tank to get use.


  • 2ml / 3.5ml capacity
  • Airflow control
  • Great flavour
  • Coils can be switched between the two tanks
  • Easy top fill

Digiflavor Siren 2 GTA

Digiflavor Siren 2 GTA MTL tank
OK, this may not be a tank for beginner vapers, or at least vapers that don’t want to use rebuildable coils but for those that don’t mind installing and wicking their own coils the Digiflavor Siren 2 offers superb quality and performance all round.

The tank features top fill, an easy deck to build on and did we mention the flavour from the Siren is superb?

The tank is available in 22mm and 24mm versions featuring 2ml (TPD complaint) and 4.5ml capacity respectively.

A welcome and much needed addition to the MTL vape tank world.

  • Top Fill

So there we have it. Our top picks for the best vape tanks and clearomizers. It’s only a small list but with the age of sub ohm vaping upon us many manufacturers seem to have set aside the clearomizer for new vapers to concentrate on sub ohm tanks.Hopefully we will see a change in this trend as these category of product is very important for new vapers.

There are others such as the Kanger Evod tanks and Aspire CE5 clearomizers that can be picked up for cheap prices. The above though will offer more in terms of quality and performance.

If you are a direct lung inhaler then check out our top rated sub ohm tanks. Many are available with coil resistances over 1.0 Ohm so you can have a quality tank without the ‘sub ohm’ element.

  1. hi jonny i have vaporesso drizzle, and i have a problem which is i can’t find coil for it in egypt, so can i change it’s tank or something?

    • Hey Muhammed,

      We haven’t used the Drizzle kit but from having a quick glance you should be able to just change the tank.

      I’d suggest sticking with tank where the coil resistance is the same or near to the coils you use already.

  2. hi jonny i have an aspire zelous mod with the nautlis 2 tank. can you recommend a top fill tank to use for it as i cant get on with the nauty 2 tank as its a pain to take of and fill. thanks adam

    • Hey Adam

      The Jacvapour S22 Topfill tank should help with your frustration 🙂 It’s on the top of the list above and is a goodun.



  3. Hi Jonny,

    I’m currently using a Smok Stick V8 baby. I like a strong throat hit. I’m not a fan of huge clouds and would like to reduce my juice usage. Could you please recommend an economical MTL tank that will work with the Smok battery that produces a decent throat hit? Many thanks.

    • Hi Breda,

      I haven’t tried the SMOK Stick V8 Baby battery with lower resistance (MTL) tanks personally, has anyone else reading this used an MTL tank on a V8 battery?

      As a kit the battery has been designed to be used with the sub ohm tank.

      So while you may be OK to use a tank such as the Aspire Nautilus 2 with the 0.7ohm coil I would recommend investing in a small variable wattage box mod.

      This in turn will give you far more control on the type of vape you get ie; warm/cool etc.

      As for throat hit, your e-liquid will be a factor.The higher the nicotine strength along with PG ratio effects this.

      Sorry not a straight forward answer! Of course, any other questions please ask.

  4. I am surprised that the Joytech Cubis isn’t mentioned its an old MTL tank and can be used as sub ohm as well, no leaks whats so ever because the bottom is sealed. The coil comes out with the top so can change coils without having to waste any liquid. I have been using it for ages and would recommend it to anyone

  5. I’m using the Kangertech KBOX Mini, I’m looking for a good MTL tank to use that I can still pull on like I would with a cigarette.

  6. Is restrictive DL vaping a lost art? Favorite tank of all time is the original Herakles. The newer Smok tanks, Uwell Valyrian, etc. are just a mess of huge air with big but not dense clouds. Closing down the airflow on a tank that’s meant to run wide open doesn’t address the issue. Is there something, under the radar, that produces flavor and clouds, but with a little resistance, in the mid-wattage range, with top-fill?

  7. Completely left out the best MTL of all time, though it’s not necessarily a tank, it’s a coil: Triton 1.8 ohm. It fits many tanks, but it is the coil that is magic. I’ve done every MTL there is from Kayfun through to today and the Triton 1.8 ohm coil is the best. 2nd is original Nautilus coil, then Nautilus X. IF your into reuilding the new Berzerker is all right. I will try Siren II next. Hard to find good MTL reviews.

    • Good shout indeed. We reviewed the Aspire Triton Mini tank and totally agree on the 1.8ohm coil. It was also on this list for a long time but due to the availability of the tank we took it off.

      Although, as you know, the 1.8ohm coil is compatible with the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini so I’ll be sure to add that above.

      We’ve just posted a Digiflavor Siren 2 review and by all accounts it’s looking good.. Be interesting to hear what you think of it once you’ve tried.



  8. Hi, my husband is newish to vaping usually uses a vape stick but our son bought him a big vape (Coolfire I think?) that makes a hissing/crackling noise and puffs out huge clouds of vapour which is off putting. If he buys a different tank can he alter the amount of vapour and reduce the crackling noise?

    • Hi Mags,

      Yeah you can use the Coolfire with other tanks for sure.

      Crackling isn’t unusual and more annoying I guess than a problem. Be interesting to know the type of e-liquid (PG/VG ration) your husband is using in the tank?

      As for clouds, sub ohm tanks (I’m presuming you are using an iSub tank?) do emmit more clouds.

      If you are looking for a mouth to lung tank rather than direct to lung sub ohm tank (read about the difference here) then this will reduce the vapour output.

      The Jacvapour S22 tank sounds like it may be a good fit for your husband and is worth having a look at.



  9. Hi there, I have a smok alien v8 but I don’t really DTL vape very often, I really like the iclear 30s tank but unfortunately it doesn’t work on my smok. Could you recommend a tank that vapes the same as the 30s and that will be recognised on the smok mod please? Many thanks Angie

    • Hi Angie,

      Do you have the SMOK Alien or the SMOK V8? 2 different devices. If it’s the Alien then the iClear 30s should work on the mod.

      If it’s the SMOK Stick V8 then you may need a new battery, a variable wattage device preferably, as the V8 is really designed to pare with the sub ohm tank it’s comes with.

  10. I have been recommended a “Tron S” tank for MTL – and it arrived today – and OMG the vapour it kicks out is incredible -might be one to add to the list?

  11. Hi Jonny,
    Desperately seeking help so here goes.
    I am a smoker of 25 years 40 or so a day either rollups or fags doesn’t matter. I am looking for a vape pen and a mod box (both to be MTL as I have read). as I don’t know which I would like I have already purchased the House of Liquid Cigarillos flavour and am hoping this will mimic the taste of a real cigarette. Money to a degree is irrelevant as if it gets me off the fags then it would be worth every penny. I also do not want all the hassle of leakages messing about with coils etc. Could you please advise what vape pen and box mod to purchase that will help me kick the fags as I read one good review and then one bad review. Thanks for taking the time. Steve.

    • Hey Steve,

      Good to hear from you and good to see your looking to get off the cigs.

      Ok.. First up, there are only a handful of products that don’t require a coil change. How they work is you just replace the whole tank or cartridge once it’s run its life. So not sure if that’s what you mean by messing about with coils?

      Seeing that you are buying bottled e-liquid (good move) it only really leaves you with something like the V2 Pro Series 3.

      If you don’t mind changing coils, it’s easier than rolling up ;), then I would recommend the following MTL kits to get you started.

      Aspire Zelos Kit (Comes with Nautilus 2 Tank). I use this kit on a regular basis when I want a MTL vape.

      Aspire K2 kit.
      Jacvapour Series S Kit

      Or the Jacvapour S22 tank is also a very good MTL tank and can be mixed with most box mods. Can see our recommendations here and here.

      If you are also looking at other Tobacco flavours, I can highly recommend Black Note as well.

      If you have further questions on the above Steve please ask away!



  12. Hello there,

    Doing well with the vaping and not missing the cigs too much. I’m interested in a really small and robust vapor – looking at the coolfire pebble – I’m using the innoken t18 and I like a) the size of the drip tip eg not too big and b) you can vape MTL. Would the coolfire pebble be a good compact option ? It’s just the mouthpieces look too wide in the pictures I’ve seen.

    Many thanks


    • Great to hear Al!

      There are a few great little mod options about at the moment, the Pebble being one of them for sure.

      Others that are very good and very compact are:

      SMOK Q Box
      Wismec RX Mini
      Innokin Cool Fire Mini

      The mouth piece on the Slipstream tank supplied with the Pebble kit is designed more for Direct to Lung (sub ohm) vaping though.

      You can of course buy the mods alone in most cases and pair with another tank. Of course you can also continue to use the T18 tank you already have.

      The first few tanks on the list above (Aspire Nautilus 2 and Jacvapour S22) are very good options that offer mouth to lung. The S22 is also offers sub ohm coils that can be good for trying that style of vaping.

      I don’t want to confuse things too much but the Aspire Nautilus tank is available in a kit with the Aspire Zelos mod.

      This is a great pairing and while the Zelos mod isn’t as compact (tiny) as the Pebble it does still sit in the hand well and has better battery life. I’ve been using this on and off for a few months.

      Anyway.. There are a few to be looking at there. Have a gander and anymore questions please ask!



  13. Hi Jonny
    I am vaping with protank mini 3 , in terms off draw(tight draw) and cloud I am very happy with it but only problem is leaking even with dual coil.
    I am thinking to buy something similar even better than protank mini 3 , can you please recommend one please? Thanks

    • Hey Ali,

      What battery/ecig/mod are you using? Before recommending be good to know as the Pro Tank Mini is a very small diameter tank



  14. Hi jonny
    I’m on a Eleaf mod and a kangertech tank I’m thinking of getting the smok tv8 and 220 mod will it be to bigger step
    Thanks minty

    • Hey Minty,

      It is a big step in terms of performance and you will also need to brush up on your battery safety. But you have experience and if you are confident with using vape gear then you should be just fine.

      Just a couple of things to be aware of with the mod and tank you are considering.

      The 220W mod (I’ll presume it’s the SMOK Alien for now) – You will need to buy good quality batteries and an external charger. One with at least 2 charging points will be preferable so you can charge your batteries at the same time. If your mod takes more than two batteries by a charger with 4 charging ports. Xtar and Nitecore are trusted brands.

      Be aware of battery safety – Always carry spares around in a plastic battery case (they are very cheap). never leave batteries unattended when charging. Most importantly buy quality batteries.

      The SMOK TFV8 tank – The performance is superb. Just be aware this tank will go through juice a LOT quicker than your Kanger tank would.

      You will be fine if you are aware of the above though!

      Any other questions you have though please ask.

  15. Greetings, good sir.
    I graduated from e-cig to Ego but am now looking for a tank producing a better draw (mouth-to-lung). However, all I have seen are tanks with metal mouthpieces – I am not a fan. (The old cold steel – they don’t like it up ’em, Captain Mainwaring!) Are there any reliable tanks out there with the option of plastic mouthpieces?

    • Haha… Hey Philip, thanks for getting in touch.

      Yeah many people don’t enjoy the cold steel feel in the mouth!

      Many tanks such as the Aspire Nautilus Mini have removable/replaceable drip tips.

      So for instance, the tank in question, can be replaced with a plastic, Delrin, ceramic, wood drip tip. They are known as ‘510 drip tips’. They are very cheap. This is the sort of thing I mean.

      The above is a great tank and if you can be bothered buying the extra drip tip then it’s recommended.

      Something else to keep in mind though with the Nautilus. Depending on the type of eGo you have the Nautilus Mini may be a little wider than the battery. You can search on Youtube to see what it looks like.

      If, however, you can’t be bothered with all that malarkey and just want to buy a tank ready to go then the Evod 2 fits the eGo well and provides good performance. You can also buy different drip tips to go with it. You can check that out here.

  16. Hi jonny , I had aen eciggrate from a friend of mine but it didn’t come with charger , I don’t use it that much but still I can’t find articles about it it’s written on the bottom igreen , I tried to open to clean the tank but I couldn’t open it I dunno if it’s stuck or it just dosnt open !

  17. Well I’ve had and discarded all these tanks as obsolete rubbish except for the Triton mini. The Nautilus x is of poor quality materials and engineering, they should have kept to their own previous high standard of engineering quality. The design of the drip tip/air-flow control is abysmal. I would recommend the Triton v2, eleaf melo 3 or ijust tank; all with aspire triton 1.8 ohm coils or vaporesso 0.9 ohm coil. My favourite carrying tank is the little eleaf gs-tank with 1.5 ohm coil (last for ever).

  18. We M2L users are completely forgotten. Our range is much smaller and more expensive. Why is that so? I think the M2L natural way, is not as attractive as D2L, but it would be nice if we had a wider choice.

    Thanks for the article.

  19. Where do you thing the triton mini and nautilus x will be reviewed and do you think they will be better than the nautilus mini
