Plastic ELiquid Tanks Can Crack or Melt When You Use Certain EJuices
Vapers are becoming more savvy about using glass rather than plastic eliquid tanks made of polycarbonate.
While there is no reported health danger (to date) in using a plastic Clearomizer, many vapers and eliquid manufacturers have reported some acidic flavors that contain a citrus enzyme can cause a chemical reaction that can crack the tank or can melt some of the plastic parts.
One of the best and most respected e-liquid companies, Mt. Baker Vapor publishes a list of their eliquids known to crack plastic Clearomizers. Mind you, those eliquids may not crack your tank at all, (I’ve noticed this in my taste tests), but since there have been reported incidents, MBV has put out the warning list. The good news is MBV conveniently sells the highest quality glass tanks on their website at a discount if you want to have some on hand for those must-have eliquid flavors.

Plenty of Flavors That Won't Damage or Crack Tanks
I find it amazing that the above list is just a “few” of the many awesome flavors offered by Mt. Baker Vapor. I have to admit the list does include some of my favorites like Solar Flare and Hawk Sauce, but I always use my Kanger ProTank2 for those flavors. I also recommend any of the Aspire metal or glass tanks. Aspire’s metal and glass ET-S BDC Clearomizer Tank is only $8.99 at Mt. Baker Vapor. The Aspire Nautilus Mini Clearomizer Tank is also an excellent choice.
Remember, everyone’s experience is going to be different, so this is just a general “heads up” of what could happen if you load any of the above-listed flavors from Mt. Baker Vapor into your plastic e-cigarette tank.
