I've had the chibi for about 3-4 months now
it's nice and most importantly cheap. 8 dollars for the tank + 1 carto
you have to fill with a syringe, and you can't change cartos until the tank is empty as it's a pain in the sack to unseat one grommet without also unseating the other.
you can just stick a syringe in to suck up any juice thats left in, change the carto and then refill with the syringe. not a huge deal, just not exactly something you can do on the go
they dont really leak unless the pressure is all ****ed up, if you get leaking or a bit of gurgling cos of a flooded carto.. just stick a syringe in between the grommet and the tank wall and let some air escape. once the pressure is equalised, the leaking/flooding will stop. a knife/scissors/whatever will do.. all you have to do is break the seal of the grommett and let some air escape.. or in.. i dont really understand that. saying that, I think my chibi has only leaked once since I got them and I fixed it in 2 seconds by letting some air out.
youll probably have a little bit of hassle getting it all set up the first time, but once you figure out the best way to do it.. (i put both grommets on either end of the carto and then gently but firmly push the carto into the tank) it hardly takes any time or effort.
the mini sub is meant to be similar (dont have one, but want one) except instead of having to equalise the pressure by lifting the grommett it has a little screw on the side which you just screw out and pull out to let the air escape, fixing your gurgling/flooding issues if they arise. good idea, you also fill through that hole iirc so a blunt needle capped bottle will do.
my main problem with carto tanks is flavour. you can get alternating great flavourful hits and sort of muted hits. I think it's to do with the way that only some of the carto gets soaked in the liquid as opposed to just filling a carto normally, where more of the filler is soaked? I dont really know, just some times and some juices the carto tank isn't as good an experience as a plain carto.. although it is a fair bit handier cos yhou're not faffing about refilling it every half hour. although maybe it's because keeping the bottom of the carto sitting in the liquid kinda wears it out a little quicker, so that while it still performs the oomph of the flavour isn't there any more. *shrug* ease of use and lack of hassle versus slightly better flavour sometimes, personal preference really
parkesvaping sell the chibi and also sell boge 2ohms, i dont know if momandpopvaporshop also sell boge 2ohms for the mini su, never ordered from them. parkes charge 5dollars for delivery and it generally takes a week or just under, so pretty reasonable.
oh and the boge 2ohms that thebestshop sell wont fit either of them, asa they are the XXL boge's. obviously if you're buying some that aren't from parkes of momandpop's get stainless so you dont have to peel that black ****e off.
actually.. maybe the boges that TBS have would work with the larger of the sub tanks that momandpops have.. the dual coil one. they seem to be sort of kinda similar in size to dual coils.
oh, momandpops do have boge 2ohms. the mini sub holds slightly less juice than the chibi though. chibi holds i think around 3ml + whatever a filled carto will hold. mini sub holds 3ml including the filled carto
the submarine tank from momandpops might be good for you, it has 1.7ohm "ressurector" which i think is just a dual coil.. not sure
