          wonder what is causing the plastic to melt? on the tanks that did melt what was the mix? 50/50, 70/30? I would guess it’s the PG doing it. I have seen the plastic get dis-colored, have not had a tank melt down yet. I will be changing over to glass soon.

          According to innokin’s website the iclear 30s tank is made of material that these liquids won’t crack, so if I have an issue I will be cintacting them….

            They claimed that but with our tests we have proved it to be false. It is a stronger plastic and can take more of a beating but still is not perfect.

        Plz add afternoon delight to the list- my t3s doesn’t like it ;( some etching started occuring within hours-
        but its one delicious vape! (Not sure if its mentioned on the product page) i know people use this list as a quick reference. Thx!

        I’m notorious for killing e-tanks. I do have one pyrex tank, but for some blends, I prefer the “pull” of my plastic tanks. I order them in bulk quantities. ;)
        I am noticing, however, on the list of tank-breakers, that they all seem to be highly-sweetened flavors. Is there a chance that it’s not so much the flavor, and the sweetener IN the flavor that does it? My maraschino cherry did melt the tip of one of my tanks–bizarre.
        I’m going to experiment with using Stevia as a sweetener. I’ll report if it ceases to melt & break tanks.

        So glad I found this…just wish I had read it before ordering the black clove and hot tamale. Hot tamale (cinnamon) cracked and broke my tank after a few pulls. So bummed, as it was my new favourite and now I have nothing (yet) to vape it in. :(

        Im pretty sure that fog your seeing is the juice eating away at your tank. Same thing happenes to me with a i16s except when i added a little pina colada to my other juice in the tank it started to eat away at it within an hour. I tried scrubbing the tank and than soaked it and it did nothing so i did a quick google search.

        I had literally filled my MT3 with Key Lime (1 extra shot) 5 minutes before it broke. Right where the tip bells out into the tank body. The crazy thing is that the two pieces wont even fit back together, its almost like the edges have been etched. But it tasted great for those couple vapes!!

            I’ve cracked 2 iclear30 & viva nova tank in the last 2 days… I was confused to all hell and just found this page, i’ve been using atomic fireball for over a year but ran out of liquid last week, baught the cinnamon hot cuz its similar, added to the tank i been using for bout 6months with the firebalk. Took 10 seconds and the tank melted, i was like wth. Opened a new tank… A minute later, tank split in half. Just bought a kanger protank..Now i need a glass tank with higher resistance & voltage. I got a vamo rev 2

  2. Denise Green

    I have used Monster, Mango, Green apple, and a couple others with no issues . Except the Green Apple made the plastic look a little foggy. So I didn’t use it in the plastic after that. But I am still using the tank. No cracks or nothing,

        You say it depends on the “Plastic the Tank is Made Out Of”, why would you purchase inferior Plastic Tanks from you supplier??? I Do Like ordering from you guys, but what the hell? Why would you sell a product that can not be used for most every flavor that currently exists for Vaping? This is a serious design flaw that must be made right! I feel like a shmuck for purchasing a second one now. The directions should read fill 1-3 times with any e juice, then throw the unit away. Can you at least sell just the tank part so we could change them out between filling?

            Go get’em james! I was just checking the evil crackers list prior to a fill on a questionable tank and may I say kudos to you sir for dealing with david belco… what a herb ass pair of clown shoes… I said it so u dont have to… my good… surely I jest, but I envy your patience and appreciate you constantly updating the list for everyone. There are tons of innexpensive tanks privy to cracking, if you dont know, put it in glass or polypropylene, or atleast educate yourself as we should all do, but dont blame the juice, blame the game! Keep ur head up james! Thanks again, mix on team baker!

          2. Philip Moyer

            I have a V2 cig and use their X-Blank clearomizers. Will they crack if I get any of the flavors listed above? I’m very interested in getting Mount Baker Vapor and really have my eye especially on black licorice. And does the chance of one cracking increase with added shots? I assume there is no problem if cartridges are used though I prefer clearomizers. I do plan on getting the Halo Triton and unfortunately will have some problems with a number of flavors.

          3. nita

            can you sell the plastic to replace … that would be great.. I would buy them… that way we wouldn’t have to buy the whole tank just the plastic part that cracks.. I would buy a bunch of them.. I have the glass tanks and I just prefer the other.. I think it smokes better and taste better .. just my opinion but I bet others feel the same as I do.. I would love to be able to buy just the plastic part that cracks.. not the whole tank.. I know that volcano does this.. but I wont purchase anything from them…

        2. Carol

          David, sorry but before you go yelling at these people you should read up on the tanks that are out there.
          Polycarbonate is that main plastic for most of the tubes, and then comes polypropylene, this plastic handles the tougher juices that these people have posted on their site, then last you have glass, nothing will crack that.
          But please read up before to give these people such a hard time and putting them down. oh if you scroll up you will see a link they have put in so you can see the tanks they have that wont crack..
          Happy Vaping David !!!!

            Unfortunately a small drop onto any hard surface will crack any glass tank, and in my case – the Kanger Protanks pyrex glass. There’s a reason that part is easily replaceable, and it’s not to change colors. However, I’ve never been able to link any specific juices to the cause; it just seems very fragile to me.

        Banana pudding will crack one very quickly and just as soon as you pour it in the top will fall off, also fire and ice some of my tanks cracked some didnt but all tops came off went thru 5 before I new the ejuice was doing it I just thought a bad batch of clearomizers

          I am sorry Debra, but I am a little confused as to what flavor you are referring to? We have several banana flavors including Banana, Banana Cream Pie, Banana Split, Bananas Gone Nuts, Banana Nut Bread and Bananas Foster. At this time we do not carry a Banana pudding flavor.

    Most “tank-cracker” juices will be fine in polypropylene clearos/tanks (polypro is the plastic that looks frosty when you buy it). The actual clear-as-glass plastic is polycarbonate, a different type of plastic all together (and the stuff of CE4s, T3s, MT3s, etc)

    And I can confirm the root beer will etch/fog up a polycarb clearo. It was worth it =D My root beer now lives in a polypropylene tank and we’re both happier for it.

      No issues with Root Beer in many months using a Kanger T3. Black Licorice fogged it almost immediately. No issues with Root Beer in many tanks. I also have several glass tanks but always seem to go back to my T3.

      It is not the flavor that really causes the problem it is the type of plastic that is used to make these tanks. If you never want to worry again pick up a Pyrex tank like the Kanger Protank

          We like to compare it to orange juice which would crack the tanks the same way. Is orange juice unsafe to ingest? There have not been any long term studies done though so we do not want to make any claims.

            James,

            I think your point should be taken one step further.

            Orange juice is perfectly fine to ingest.
            Orange juice which has been put into a polycarbonate container is likely not that great to ingest. It is no longer pure orange juice, since it also has dissolved plastic in it.

            If a juice cracks a tank, or fogs it, I would hope that it doesn’t get used by anyone in a plastic tank. I wish you would actively discourage people from using any tank-cracker juices in polycarb tanks, even if they haven’t had problems with them. It is likely that in a PV the dissolved plastic components are bad news.

            Please e-mail me if you would like to continue the discussion!

        The Davide protank is a really good tank, but I don’t think you all offer it. it is similar to Kanger protank. Pyrex tank, Breaks down so you can clean it. I love it have had no problems with discoloration or cracking. I purchased it from local shop, Covalvapes.

        thx – for the T3 info. U are lucky the ecto hasn’t cracked your T3. I haven’t gotten the nerve
        to try any ecto in my T3 yet.lol. I did buy a pro tank. Was really disappointed in the draw b/c all I got
        was air when I vaped and practically no vapor. But someone on ECF recommended wrapping the threads with plumbers tape and then opening up a little space for air movement, which I did and now my ProTank vapes great.

        Extra shots can gunk up coils faster due to the higher percentage of flavoring added to the base. Sorry for the troubles.

    The banana split started tasting really bad (burnt rubbery) in my vivi nova 2.5. When I unscrewed the bottom cap I could actually feel the tank cave in a bit and it was warped beyond repair :( It vapes great, tastes great in my stardust clearomizer though. Glass/metal tanks seem to be the way to go I guess. We live, we learn.

    Expect anything Tropical or Citrus will fog & then crack your PLASTIC Tank. It will even Melt the Plastic Tip Plug. In addition Clove Juices will also Crack Plastic(my personal exp.). This is what made me research the topic. Its just better to avoid the headaches & get a Glass-Pyrex Tank. The best I’m told is Kanger but I can’t personally vouch for that yet.

      I vape quite a few clove flavors in various clearos including an Evod and Vivi Nova, never had cracking, melting, fogging, etc in over 100ml of liquids through each. Very interesting to hear some have trouble with them.

    I have salacious strawberry and rad energy. Obviously I know the rad cracks the tanks but we have just went through 4 tanks in 4 days with the salacious strawberry. All kanger t3 tanks are broken from that. I think it’s clearly the vape. I’m very disappointed so far.

    I notice that neither Dutch Apple Pie nor Cinnamon Roll are listed even though they both have to contain at least some cinnamon. So are these flavors really safe in a Polycarbonate tank like the Kanger EVOD? Anyone with personal experience?

    I bought 50 ml of Key Lime to use in a Kanger glass. The Kanger worked well the 1st tank, barely produces any vapor now. Don’t want to be stuck with juice, so going to try in plastic. Wish the Kanger worked better.

    Hi James! Should Cinnamon Roll be on this list too? I’ve only been vaping it from my Protank since seeing all the other cinnamon flavors on this list so I can’t say I’ve actually *tried it* in a plastic tank. Anyone?

        Filled my tank with Cinnamon Roll 0, had a little straight tobacco flavour 12 left in the tank, puffed and left the house, 30 mins later pulled it out of the case, it ate through both top and bottom ends of the tank. didn’t just crack it, destroyed it! Won’t use it again until I get a glass tank

    Sad to say that the Banana Creme Pie is starting to fog up the vivi nova tank. It took much longer than the Banana Split did though. I’ve ran at least 5 tankfuls through now, but yes, I can see that it will fail shortly. I’m guessing that any liquid where banana is the predominant flavor will have this issue now :( Excellent flavor on both though, and I have some pyrex tanks coming in a few days which should solve the problem.

    Add Cherry Limeade to the list of juices that crack plastic tanks. It completely shattered my vivi nova that I had just bought at the flea market & it wasn’t even on the list of juices to be cautious of. That’s my only complaint. However I am new to the world of vaping. Just wish I could order one of those new Kanger Pro Tanks now. What tank would you recommend me ordering in the meantime that is high resistant?

    Hi James,

    Understand that some flavour may have chemical reaction with plastic tanks and thus the pyrex tank recommendation, ie, Kanger Protank.

    The question I am wondering is that the bottle that is shipped your liquid is plastic to begin with. In that case, wouldn’t the liquid is already having a chemical reaction in its storage bottle even before I start using it ?

      The bottles are made out of a different kind of plastic as the tanks. There are different grades and qualities of plastics.

    just received two new e-juices
    (1) cinnamon hot tamale, it cracked my EVOD BCC after about ten pulls at 4V
    (2) Venom, it cracked my second EVOD BCC in like two pulls at 4.8V
    very upset, what is the cause of this? My local vape store has same type cinnamon e-juices and they don’t crack tanks. I guess I just want to know if these are problem flavors why doesn’t it just get fixed or at very lease put it in the description of the flavor instead of in a different place on the site due to the multitude of flavors on the hit list. FYI these are the first flavors that have cracked any of my tanks, went and got two all metal vivi nova tanks, problems solved after $30+ :(

    The America in an 80pg/20vg mix did not harm the Kanger T2′s at all, the America 50pg/50vg did immediately react and haze, pitting a Kanger T2. Disposed of the tainted liquid since it did haze the tank, and dispose of any tanks that appear to be pitted, hazed, or milky, since the plastic has been compromised and could be leeching into your liquid.

    The reason this is so enigmatic is that the culprit would appear to be natural oils, but also ketones used in an endless number of artificial flavorings. Avoiding citrus isn’t a sure bet. Going to another supplier won’t help. Regrettably, even tying to make a list is likely a futile effort. Chances are, the flavors which won’t react with polycarbonate are in the minority. It appears that in many cases it is simply a matter of which flavors react severely with pc and which are in the ‘not recommended’ range.

    Reply
      1. Shannon Ross

        A local shops touts their T2 clearos as being a mix of PC and PP plastics, which in theory could be resistant. I ran most of a sample of America through mine and it’s still working fine at least, but I probly wouldn’t run a strong citrus or fruit flavor through or even leave america in too long. But hey, we can be pretty sure 555 and nutty flavors and such are fine in those clearos, and those are the one’s I’m most likely to vape, so still works for me. I’d be careful of stuff with a lot of vanilla extract though.

    how about a list of those flavors known NOT to crack plastic tanks? personally i dont have any issues with any juice as i use only stainless and pyrex tanks ( why spend all that money to buy good mods and buy cheap plastic tanks?) but im sure those guys who have tank cracking problems might like a list of those flavors who are known to been safe in plastic. i mix all my own stuff and use only lorann candy oils and everyone ive given refills on juice to with plastic tanks has never had a problem with cracking, wth the exception of spearmint, cinnamon oil, sassafras wintergreen,tangerine and a couple ofthers any oil thats natural oil based will crack a plastic tank, and at the very least frost it inside, but once that happens its just a matter of time. buy tanks with pryex and youll never have a problem.

    as faras the the guy who has problems with his protank burners, they are garbage out of the box. get into rebuilding your own taks and youll never have an issue after that. remeber, in a protank. 1.7-1.8 is the magic number on your resistance, and vape around 3.0-3.3 volts.

      How it works is we do not know what will crack a plastic tank so as it gets reported we add it to the tank cracker list. We would never want to promise anything we do not know for fact. There are to many different types of plastic for us to test every single one. Some plastic also holds up way better then others.

    When I placed my order. I got the Vanilla Tobacco and got a free Candy Cane sample. When I placed the order I explained I use a ce-5 plastic tank. It’s not the Candy Cane I am writing about, even though I can’t vape it in my tanks. The Vanilla Tobacco is fogging my tank in 1 day and breaking seals.. Weirdly the Vanilla Tobacco taste like pure clove!?! Wondering if I could have gotten the wrong flavoring? No vanilla or tobacco *at all*. Been vaping for 3 years now and am use to the diversity in liquid. As it steeps the clove only gets stronger. Thanks for any reply.

      I would like to delete my previous comment. I realized I mentioned the flavor more than the effect it had on my plastic tank… My only point was the Vanilla Tobacco seems to fog my ce-5 tank along with slowly leak through the seals. My interpretation of the liquid doesn’t apply to this page.. I mentioned the flavor thinking it might be clove affecting the tank? I love your company and will return for more liquid! Going to have to get a Pyrex tank just to be safe ;) Thanks for all the dedication to quality liquids.
      Sincerely,

      I’m very sorry about this. I seem to be wrong. I read this page after trying to fix a tank. It seems like condensation inside the tank. The leak is probably unrelated. It is a new tank, yet the ce-5′s are cheap ones. I jumped the gun after reading about “fogged” tanks, while looking to see if Candy Cane was in the comments. Again sorry I do not believe the liquid to be the reason. If you don’t mind taking down my comments it would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi MBV, I’ve noticed that some flavors are on either the list or the site, not on both, could you maybe add them to the site descriptions, too? Here are some that I’ve found aren’t listed in their descriptions.

    1. Thug Juice
    2. Morning Vape
    3. Salacious Strawberry
    4. Black Licorice
    5. Lightning
    6. White Out
    7. Lemon Breezy
    8. Hawk Sauce

      We do have several juices that do not crack tanks and are still either $4.99 or $5.99 for a 15 ml. Also are list is a compilation of flavors that our customers have say crack tanks. But everyone’s experience is different some people have problems and some do not. It really varies from person to person. We just try to warn people so they can have the best vaping experience possible.

      We also have tanks that are pyrex that don’t crack no matter what juice you put in them. They also hold more juice then the plastic ones. I hope this helps answers your questions. Let us know if you have any others.

    Is Thug Juice really a tank cracker? I vaped 50 ml of it without knowing it was a tank cracker and had no problems. I just ordered 236 more ml of it and was wondering if it’s on this list by accident? I also ordered Black and extreme ice but i’ll be safe with those.

      Yes, customers have reported that thug juice can damage plastic tanks. However, this varies from vapor to vapor. We just like to be overly cautious in warning people, so they can have the best vaping experience possible.

      It is so interesting how much it varies from person to person. I myself cracked a Kanger T3 with almond amaretto but my husband has had Ecto Cooler in a Kanger T3 for a month and it is 100% fine.

    No issues with Root Beer in many months in several T3 tanks. Black Licorice fogged the tank immediately, but didn’t break it. I also have glass tanks but I always go back to my Kanger T3. Love those little tanks, and they’re cheap as well!

    I’ve had some very cheap plastic tanks crack almost immediately with different flavors – the ones that come with a new Vamo for instance. I wouldn’t ever even bother with those again.

    Glass tanks are getting cheaper, the new mini pro-tank from Kanger is pretty sweet, and under $20 retail. The only draw back is that it doesn’t hold a lot of liquid. Pro-tanks are nice, but delicate. The bases break easily if you knock or drop the tank. Use it with the collar or “beauty ring” to help keep the base from snapping off. Replacement bases are also available for less than $2.

    I was just wondering why this happens, if anyone can shed some light on this…

    I have two Vivi Nova tanks that are both cracked, but still useable. I had assumed they took a tumble at some point, which is probably equally likely, but am still concerned for their dwindling lifespan because my particular e-cig transfers a Vivi Nova tank into an Ego-C Twist battery. Because of this, I am not positive I can replace my tank type with just any new glass tank. I guess that makes two questions.

    FYI – pina colada & morning Vape cracked two of my EVOD tanks. I wish i had read this thread before ordering. I use VG juice only, and i have tried different pina colada VG juice from different makers and i have never had this issue. The juice i ordered was 70%VG+ 30% water. Pure VG juice shouldn’t melt/crack plastic.

    I have been ordering from Mt Baker for months and love it! I have had no issues with tank cracking until now. I bought gummi bear awhile back and had no issues with it. Then I purchased it again and it cracked 2 tanks in a matter of minutes :(. I know it is trial and error. Just wanted to report it. Thank you!

    Sweet Cherry Bomb is also a tank-cracker. Tried it both straight, and just a few drops in another flavor. In both cases the CE4′s cracked around the top or bottom ring). I suspect it’s the same flavoring as the marascino cherry?

    (Delicious by the way, when it’s in metal!)

    I sent in a report about Tidal Wave via e-mail but I still don’t see it on “the list.”

    I ran 3 fills of Tidal Wave through a Kanger T3 and it kept getting “weepier” on the outside of the clearo from one tank to the next. I thought I was just being sloppy or something and couldn’t figure out where the liquid was coming from.

    At the end of the third tank it was so bad I cleaned the plastic tank well, did a close inspection, and found cracks in the plastic all around the base, where the plastic tank meets the metal support at the base. Some of the cracks are so deep it looks like it’s ready to break off the base.

    I don’t know exactly which flavorings go into this one but it has a mint (double mint?) and a lemon in there so… Surprised no one else has run into a problem yet.

    I’m sorry I didn’t take the time to read every comment on this thread, but what I came here to mention can’t be stressed enough.

    Nobody should be inhaling liquid that comes out of a polycarbonate tank. Any plastic that falls under codes 3 and 7 leach harmful chemicals into whatever they are carrying. Polypropylene and glass are perfectly safe. Also, if you haven’t already, please read up on the effects of milky, creamy, buttery, and custard type vapes. I’m posting from my phone currently so I don’t have all the info me but there is “potentially harmful” ingredients these types of flavors that can be harmful when inhaled.

    Again, sorry to cry wolf and not back it up with sources. Pull out your Google-fu and do a little research, I had my vapor world turned upside down.

      At this time we haven’t had any reports of Razzleberry Pie or Bananas Gone Nuts cracking EVOD tanks. You should be just fine. Since they are darker juices they may gunk up coils a little more, but that can be remedied by dry burning regularly.

    Rookie question……. I apparently am quite rough on my tanks…. I started vivi, purchased a kanger (which I never cared for ) before recently getting an aspire BDC pyrex tank….. I have had prob 2 minis 4 reg sized novas the kanger and the aspire (only about a week) and I break them ALL! Actually the kanger never broke it just upreformed poorly all around. Is there an all metal tank or on that is tough as nails for us clumsy users? ( I had a lanyard, but got tired of something always on my neck) the pyrex did well until I dropped it on concrete ( far and hard) but today the threads that gointo the battery actually came off! But I think that was from me tightening it accidenlty when unscrewing the tank to fill it

      Not a rookie question at all. I am actually super clumsy and have smashed my share of pyrex tanks. I would recommend http://www.mtbakervapor.com/accessories/smok-pyrex-vivi-nova/ It’s pyrex, but has a sheath around. The only part of the pyrex that is exposed is the juice viewing window. Also the iClear 30 is a good strong tank as well. http://www.mtbakervapor.com/accessories/innokin-iclear-30-clearomizer/ It is plastic, but I have dropped some of mine several times. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Double Mint? Seriously? I vaped it for a month straight with zero issues even with a generic T3… Now, full on citrus flavors made the black plastic mouth piece start melting almost right away even on a decent brand iClear16…

    So ya, I’m gonna go with a metal/glass tank shortly but I’m still shocked double mint is on this list when I have had no problems with it or wintergreen, a much more potent mint flavor. I personally think double mint has to be safe but I appreciate this “Just to warn you” list.

    I think it blows that almost everything you make is no good with plastic. If it destroys plastic, it also destroys your o-rings. Some people want to use plastic and o-rings while vaping! Just am very let down by this, as I have just purchased 75 bucks worth of liquids that I can only drip. I have fried my o-ring on my 91% and killed my tank in no time flat! One day..There must be a better way. You have to make tons of money even at your cheap prices. It’s time to step up your game. Make more stuff we can use.

    extreme soda took out an evod2, no big loss. I switched over to t3s’s awhile back and I knew it was a risk.

    figured the steel shell around the tank would keep it from cracking. =D

      Yeah, unfortunately the metal shell is still covering a plastic tank which is susceptible to cracking with these flavors. Do you prefer plastic over glass tanks? Just curious.

      Reply
  79. jeff

    Michael, I’m still pretty new to this, so I was still experimenting my way around. I started out with a kangar evod kit and started upgrading. I bought the evod 2 tanks figuring the dual coil would double the vapor. wrong guess. honestly I really don’t care for the metal tips either. the t3s tanks are bigger and have better vapor than both and also have a plastic tip.

    I thought about trying a mini-protank setup for laughs, but overall I like the smaller tanks more. this thing has to sit in my pocket at work so the evod setup is only slightly bigger than a marker. a t3s tank and 1100 battery is just a little longer than a sharpie and lasts all day for work. it’s also pretty bulletproof if you get genuine parts. I got some counterfeit t3s tanks once and they kinda fell apart pretty quickly.

    Reply
  80. jeff

    I also thought the tank cracking issue might have been a pressure thing, so having the steel shell around it wouldn’t allow it to expand to the point where it could crack.

    like I said, no big loss. I found the evod2 tanks seemed to make the vapor too hot anyway, and I really don’t care for the tip being freezing cold when you first start using it.

    OK, lots of crazyness here. I have run 80ml’s with 2 xtra shots of Cinnamon-Bun through two different iClear 30s (I keep one loaded as a spare) and haven’t seen any of the problems that have been reported here.

    Also I put 10ml of “NEW-U” straight Cinnamon through one of the tanks long ago and had no problems.

    But I always use a 80PG/20VG mix. don’t know if that has anything to so with it.

      The iClears can be super finicky. Sometimes you tell them a bad joke and they crack. Essentially, if enough complaints of a flavor breaking a tank, we label it as a tank cracker to let people know.
