This makes me wonder a bit. Would it be possible to take the wicking from a dead clearo and use it to replace the wicking in the tanko?

well first you would have to find a way to take a tanko apart with out ripping it open and killing it and then finding a way to put it back together to where it works.

My guess is people will come up with mods or the manufacturer will release a "new and improved" version as they discover what the issues are...

I honestly think the next improvement will be sometype of adjustable draw, so that the user can adjust how much pressure is created for thicker juices.

Hmmm, I might find some tinkering is in need of being done here...

Half way there.... :twisted: another one is dissasembled safely.. :thumbup:

Replacing the wick is THE most difficult part... :evil: :think: :problem:

I already have 4 new wicks installed in the spike...but gettng more is proving very tuff, in order to have them remain in place....the mesh is the secret, but reattaching it ....issue BIG TIME!!! :problem:

I have a quick question about cleaning.

What sort of cleaning schedule should I keep? Ive had my inferno for 2 weeks now and Ive cleaned it once a week, just got done cleaning my first tankomizer today and using a new tankomizer I just ordered while it dries. I follow the cleaning directions b the geek squad (boiling water, agitation, dry)

Is it possible to clean it too much?

So far, what is the average estimated life of a tankomizer? My blu atties and magma atties have been with me for a year and they are still kicking (with regular cleaning). Atties are significantly cheaper than tankomizers though, but Id be really happy if they lasted at least a year before considering a replacement.

Im interested in the flushing method Shado presented, seems very efficient and takes care of agitation in one go, or several if you so please. But Im hesitant to go with a method not endosed by Volcano.

Newbie here to the forums and just had those few quick questions to fire at you all :)

Thank you in advance!

It really depends on how much and what you vape. I clean mine at least once a week, or more often if the draw starts getting stiff. I wasn't sure if you meant you used boiling water or if you boiled it and let it cool a little. You don't want to boil them, but you do want to use really hot water. These links might be helpful though.
