Smok - Rebuildable Tank (RTank)
Rebuildables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.
This is because:
1. A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
2. If it is not tested it is entirely the risk of the user.
3. Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
4. New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV that has short circuit protection.
5. No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
6. These items destroy electronic devices if faulty. This is a known issue.

- Wicks are terrible, works better as a drip atty Review by joshwt
After that it works great. Even using the stock wick as a drip atty the vape is pretty damn good. This is however a tank and you will need to use a better wick to use it as a non drip atty.
Not bad for $20, the build quality is great and again one you get it working right the vape is damn good. (Posted on 11/9/13)
- Sucks to the max Review by tester
- Terrible, do not buy Review by Jonathan
- I have used a rebuildable tank before, but no matter what I do, the coils and wick that come with this are terrible. I have yet to have a single draw that didn't taste like burnt charcoal. These wicks just dry burn after half a second of power and simply do not replenish the liquid to the coils. I have recoiled these several times just to make sure, but no go. I guess it is true what they say, you get what you pay for, and a $20 rebuildable tank is a waste of $20, plain and simple. (Posted on 3/21/13)
- A great tank! Review by Jim
- I am loving this tank! I ran thirty mls thru the first coil. I did wash and dry burn it a couple of times, cleaned up real nice and did not have to break into the extra prewound coils. Well I finally got around to changing the coils. So damn easy, even a caveman can do it. No problems at all and this puppy puts out the vapor. Running it on a ZMax at 4.5. I do believe I have found the tank I will stick with. (Posted on 1/31/13)
- it's good - but a little picky! Review by supertrunker
I got one of these about 2 weeks ago and was amazed at the coil on it, until it failed after about half a tank of juice!
I made a replacement that just failed outright - and so today - i did it again. i changed it little - but it is important to make sure you WRAP the ends around the posts - just putting them in there is not sufficient.
It is now working brilliantly and i am finally pleased with the money i spent - it's a tremendous vape when you get it right. It says you can 'drip' thru a hole to fill the tank - but really!! Buy a syringe and save yourself 30 mins!
i run it on a Silver Bullet and as far as rebuildables go - it's a better one, but a word of warning: if you are a 'i just want to throw it together and have it work' sort of person - then it may frustrate you! I recommend decent tweezers and a table magnifying glass (no - no - not the ones the wife plucks her eyebrows with!!).
