8 Best Vape Tanks – Mouth to Lung & Direct to Lung E Cig Tanks
Once you get the best vape tank for your vaping style you will never look back.
Thing is, there are thousands of options so the choice can be a little difficult.
Here at Ecigclick we have reviewed over 260 mouth to lung and sub ohm tanks, it has to be said the quality varied quite a bit!
What is the Best Vape Tank for 2020?
As a collective group of vapers the following best vape tank list is what we have found to be top performers. It has been narrowed down to offer something for both the beginner and advanced vaper.
1. Freemax Mesh Pro (Editors Choice – Best Vape Tank Overall)
Well what is there to say about the incredible Mesh Pro? I reviewed this and it got almost full marks from me! It is still by far my favourite Sub Tank ever!
The flavour from this rivals some RTAs – indeed some rebuildable enthusiasts on the EcigClick team love this tank too.
There is a huge range of mesh coil heads including the standard single coil, double, triple, quad and even Sextuple coils!
The coil life is amazing and this keeps kicking out the flavour for weeks with a good quality e-liquid.
With the bubble glass installed you can take the e-liquid capacity up to a huge 6ml and a slide top filling cap allows for easy refilling.
This is a large diameter tank at around 26mm for the resin versions (the carbon versions were slightly smaller) so you might need to make sure you have a mod that can accommodate this without overhang.
Flavour is comparable to RTA’s
Huge range of coil options
Coil life is fantastic
Great e-liquid capacity
2. Aspire Tigon Tank (Best Mouth To Lung Tank)
The Aspire Tigon tank can be used in MTL and DTL configurations.
On review it really shone when used with the 1.2ohm MTL coil and mouth to lung (MTL) drip tip installed. In fact this coil even coped with thicker e-liquid mixtures of 70%VG so it is pretty versatile!
There are also 0.7ohm mesh and 0.4ohm Kanthal coils to choose from.
The coils have been designed to be really easy to remove and install having a push in and pull out fitment. In addition to easy installation a seal prevents the e-liquid still in the tank leaking out when you remove the coil.
The flavour was found to be excellent and the tank has a dual adjustable airflow set up – holes for restricted MTL and slots for DTL vapers.
To refill the tank has a child safe mechanism which involves first lifting the top cap up and then sliding across. Obviously this increases safety plus less likely to accidentally slide open.
Capable of wicking up to 70% VG e-liquid
Easy coil installation with sealing mechanism for when coil is removed
Child proof slide top fill
MTL (holes) and DTL (slots) adjustable airflow inlets
3. Geekvape Zeus Sub Ohm Tank (Best Vape Tank For Flavour)
Following on from the successful RTA range Geekvape moved the Zeus into stock coil territory.
Like the popular RTA version this has the top airflow design which should minimise the chance of any leakage from the airflow inlets. The airflow is of course fully adjustable and during our review the leak proof airflow system seemed to do its job!
Also on review the quality of the tank really impressed as did the flavour with either of the supplied coils. You get a Kanthal mesh 0.4ohm and 0.2ohm coil included.
Talking of coils these are a simple push in and pull out design. There were zero issues with wicking or dry hits.
Top adjustable airflow inlets – leak proof
Excellent flavour and performance
Easy to change coils
5ml capacity bubble glass option
4. Smok TFV16 (Best Vape Tank For Clouds)
The TFV16 is a huge monster of a tank – boasting a maximum 9ml e-liquid capacity and is 28mm in diameter.
Obviously the size might have to influence the mod you can use this on without overhang!
A new range of coils were created for this including single, dual and triple mesh coil versions. The single and Dual can be used at power levels up to 120W!
To accommodate larger airflow inlets the height of the base was increased and there are two large slotted inlets which can be opened or closed with the adjustment ring to your preference. The big airflow seemed to really kick up the flavour and vapour production in our review.
The top fill cap has a button to lock and has be redesigned so that the gasket is now below the swing cap to make access to the fill port easier and prevent leaks from the top.
Huge juice capacity – maximum 9ml
Large adjustable airflow inlets for increased cloud production
3 mesh coil heads available
High wattage and high flavour stock coil tank
5. Horizon Falcon (Best Mesh Vape Tank
The Horizon Falcon tank was released in the early days of stock coil mesh tanks and also had some experimental wicking options!
This was quite a breakthrough including flax fibre, wood pulp and cotton wicking. In particular the single Mesh (M1) coil combined with the Wood Pulp and Cotton was a little flavour monster. There are also regular wire style coil heads.
I reviewed this tank and found it to be an excellent performer with the mesh coils but since then Horizon have released some more coil options including dual and triple mesh.
Like the Freemax tank this is a chubby fella with a 25mm base diameter so you will need a mod which is able to accept this without overhang.
The tank is filled via the top and the cap is a screw fit so no accidentally sliding open. The triple slotted airflow inlets are adjustable using the bottom airflow control ring.
Amazing flavour from a stock coil tank
5ml maximum capacity with bubble glass
Great range of coils including multiple mesh options
Screw top fill cap
6. Innokin Zlide (Best Selling MTL Vape Tank)
The Innokin Zlide tank is an updated version of the popular Zenith tank designed for MTL vapers.
The Zlide uses the same Z range of coils including the new Z-Plex3D mesh. As you would expect the airflow is adjustable via the airflow control ring at the base.
To refill there is a sliding top fill cap but this also has a locking feature to prevent children accessing the e-liquid and also useful to prevent accidental opening.
Another feature added for the Zlide was the flat top cap – removing the drip tip platform which was seen on the Zenith – making custom drip tips look neater.
To make the Zlide more cost effective the e-liquid control valve found on the Zenith has been removed and the tank glass can be replaced if damaged.
Compatible with all the Z range of coils
New Z-Plex3D mesh coil introduced
Ability to replace the tank glass
Locking top fill cap
7. Aspire Nautilus 2S (Best Vape Tank For Beginners)
The Aspire Nautilus tanks have become legendary as a high benchmark in stock coil MTL vaping!
So to update the range the 2S was released this time with the ability to accommodate DTL vapers too whilst still being one of the best performing MTL tanks.
The airflow has a similar style to the Tigon – for MTL vaping the airflow can be turned to the round inlet holes and for DTL vaping there is a slot airflow option.
You will be pleased to hear the BVC coils are still compatible with the 2S and a new DTL coil at 0.4ohm resistance has been included. You also have an option of a new 0.7ohm mesh coil available separately. On the TPD version the coil also has a childproof lock.
The curvy design element is still apparent and there is a slide top fill cap which has a childproof lock too.
DTL and MTL airflow options
New DTL 0.4ohm BVC coil
Compatible with existing BVC coils
Locking slide top fill cap
8. JAC Vapour S22 (Best For Both MTL And DTL)
The JAC Vapour S22 tank is one of those worth having in your collection. A solid workhorse of a tank with excellent build quality.
The tank glass is protected with the steel cover so less chance of smashed glass leaving you stranded! Especially if you are someone who subjects their vaping gear to a hard life!
Originally the S22 had a bottom fill design but there is a top filling version now you will be pleased to hear.
Another great feature of this tank is there are many coil options to choose from – MTL, Turbo and even DTL variants should keep most vapers happy.
At the base of the tank is the adjustable airflow control ring which during our review combined with the applicable coils managed to achieve both MTL and DTL airflow!
Solid well-built rugged tank
DTL and MTL coil options to choose from
Top filling version available
Airflow is adjustable and works well with DTL and MTL coils
