Tired of leaking pens. Need recommendations.
I've been vaping for 2.5 years (after 45 years of smoking tobacco) and I've lost count of the devices I've owned.

The pens I like most are the Kanger Subvod 2300s but all three of the ones I've bought leak like crazy.  I've watched many of the videos on YouTube on how to fix them, but still they leak.

I'm not interested in building my own, making cois, or anything else other than vaping.

I'd like some recommendations on devices (not boxes; tried those too) that are reasonably priced and put out sufficient vapor on the level of the Subvods.  Most of the more expensive devices I've bought  have been genuine Kangertechs, but most, if not all of them, leaked so I'm done with Kanger.

Thanks for your help !

I haven't had any leaking issues with my Smok vapepen 22, I got it from a B&M for $40 but they are cheaper online.

RE: Tired of leaking pens. Need recommendations.
Hi Casper250 Welcome to TVF I've not got any recommendations really because all the tanks I've used and currently use leak to a fashion. I know this isn't much help but I would really like to find a non leaking tank so if you find one please let me know. Dash2

RE: Tired of leaking pens. Need recommendations.
  Hello and welcome Casper! I'm not a fan of anything Kanger, either. First question, do you mtl or dtl vape? If it's dtl, the only tanks I can recommend personally are the TFV4 and TFV8 by Smok, and the Uwell crown 2. They have never, ever leaked on me, but that's with only using the pre-built coils. Oh, and the Smowell Hatrick. Almost forgot that one. It hasn't leaked on me yet, but I've only had it a few weeks. But if you mtl, I'm kinda lost. Someone else will have to answer that one. As far as mods go, I left the subvod sized stuff years ago. I hope you reconsider box mods, the right one can enrich your vaping experience substantially, and they have nothing to do with whether or not your tank leaks, I'm sure you know that already. We are here to help, I'm sure we will get you on the right track.

Come to think of it, I have an old fogger that I can't remember ever leaking. Called a "big Fogger", it was supposed to hold 15ml, but I don't think it did. I broke the glass on it, and couldn't find a replacement anywhere, or even a listing for it, and have not seen another one like it. Have you?

RE: Tired of leaking pens. Need recommendations.
Hi Casper, I would say the SMOK TFV4 or TFV8. if and when the tank leaks, it's time to change the coil. Lower end but bottom filled that never leaked on me was the ASPIRE Nautilus Mini....again, if it starts to leak, it's time to change the coil....
