Top Tanks 2018

2018 has been an amazing year in the Vaping world, we saw a lot of ground breaking innovations that changed the industry forever. This year marked the rise of the ultra powerful mesh coil structure! I personally swear by mesh coils and refuse to use any tank that doesn’t offer a mesh coil, they’re the pinnacle of flavor production in vaping right now and yours truly is definitely a flavor chaser. With all these amazing innovations it's hard to separate the good from the bad, so I did it for you!

Here’s a look at some of the best vape tanks that came out this year.

#5 Uwell Crown 4 Sub-Ohm Tank

I was surprised to see the Crown 4 ranking right up with the rest of our top-sellers, especially considering its only been out for a few weeks! But the fact that it barreled its way into our top selling vape tanks list is a true testament to just how good this Sub-Ohm Tank is!

The Uwell Crown 4 Tank is an upgraded sub-ohm vaping atomizer that features a high-quality stainless steel and silicone construction, patented self-cleaning technology, and mesh coil compatibility. 28mm base diameter. 6mL E-Liquid capacity. 5mL capacity with straight glass. New and innovative heating chamber and air channels prevent leakage.Mesh coils feature double helix design, for even heating and excellent flavor production. Top-fill system with threaded design. Hand-polished stainless steel. Crown 4 atomizers absorb e-juice in the integrated condensation holder and vaporize it in a self-cleaning mechanism.


#4 Horizon Falcon Tank Resin Edition

The Falcon Tank Resin Edition is an updated design of the original falcon tank from Horizon, featuring an upgraded 7mL E-Juice reservoir and new M2 mesh coil compatibility. Convenient top-filling refilling system, with adjustable bottom airflow (triple airflow slots), and gold-plated 510 connector for maximized conductivity. The coil system from Horizon features high-quality wood pulp and flax cotton builds that last long and provide exceptional flavor and cloud production. Stunning cobra-print resin pattern and colorful bubble glass tube.

#3 FreeMax FIRELUKE MESH Sub-Ohm Tank

The FIRELUKE MESH Sub-Ohm Tank utilizes all-new MESH heating elements in its premade coils. Featuring a 24mm diameter base with a threaded top-fill design, dual adjustable airflow slots, and 3mL of E-Juice capacity.The MESH coils boast a large surface area, increasing cloud and flavor production. Constructed from stainless steel, resin, or carbon Fiber, with a knurled design for style in a wide variety of colors.


#2 HorizonTech Falcon Sub-Ohm Tank

The tank so nice it made this list twice! The Horizon Falcon Sub-Ohm tank was such a best seller, when they released the resin version it almost surpassed this original Falcon Sub-Ohm Tank!

The Falcon comes with a 5ml juice capacity and top fill system. But what really takes this tank up a notch are the coils! The Falcon utilizes different wick material to offer a customize-able vaping experience. This tank offers the choice of 30% wood pulp with 70% cotton, natural flax fiber, flax fiber and flax paper, mesh coil 30% wood pulp 70% cotton. The Falcon makes flavor it priority.

#1 FreeMax Mesh Pro Sub-Ohm Tank

It should come as no surprise that the FreeMax Mesh Pro Sub-Ohm takes the crown for tank of the year 2018. When it first released it was the very first tank in the world to offer a triple mesh coil capable of producing some serious clouds. I personally have bought two of them, one for testing E-Juices at work because the flavor production is so accurate, and one to keep at home. If you haven’t tried a FreeMax Mesh Pro Tank you’re missing out!

An exceptionally smooth draw paired with fantastic flavor production. The Mesh Pro measures 25mm in base diameter and is outfitted with an adjustable gold-plated 510 pin. Standard bulb glass features a 5mL E-Juice capacity, while the included bubble glass upgrades the reservoir to hold 6mL. Slide-to-open top-refilling system for convenience and ease. Airflow preferences are adjustable via dual sliding airflow slots located at the base of the tank.

    Crown 4 with un mesh coils and mesh pro by Freemax are by my top I have 3 crown 4 and two mesh pro tanks I believe they are the best on the market right now for sub ohm but the as for the RDTA and RDA become a waste of time even though the fancier by Uwell is a close 3rd but the difficult in wicking this becomes a headache even after you have mastered it

  • Kayla patton: January 16, 2019

    I have four freemax mesh pro tanks and LOVE them.

  • Jordan Premonics: January 03, 2019

    Firstly, I just want to say I love the comments guys. I read through each and every one and I appreciate you all taking the time to give me some feedback. To answer @Tony’s question, I typically run the triple and quad mesh coils with my mesh pro. They provide fantastic flavor from all my E-Liquids while still allowing me to puff some massive clouds when I want to turn up the wattage. I highly recommend their SS316 Mesh Coil as well, I don’t typically use temperature control but when I tried it with the Freemax Coil I was pleasantly surprised by how well these coils perform.

    I saw these to anos online and decided what the heck give it a try. Two of my vaporesso be tanks continue to leak so I replaced them with these. By far the mesh pro is the best so far for me. Everyone is different. I had to let the juice steep for a minute but once u get going it’s awesome flavor production for two solid weeks. I just bought my third one and a replacement pack of could. The metal ones are made very well and they are sturdy. I’m hard on my things and this tank hasn’t busted yet. I will be replacing all my tanks with these when necessary. Have not tried to horizon tank yet but ince I can find it cheap enough j will and update my review. Who knows it could be better than the mesh pro. We will see. These provide ling lasting coils great cloud production and very smooth hits. Great flavor in the juice with the mesh pro as well. Like I say everyone is different. Ok there may like the falcon tank better than the mesh pro. Just depends on the individual.

    The Freemax Mesh Pro is definitely overrated!!! I bought one when they came to the market and only vaped on it for about a week! I tried all the coils it offers and I just think it sucks compared to great tanks like the Horizon Tech Falcon! Horizon Tech knows what they are doing when it comes to making their coils! I forgot to mention how ugly of a tank the Mesh Pro is! It is poorly made! It is way too tall and bulky and the horrible red dot on it locating where to open the top fill system is just hideous! Please if you are looking to buy a tank based off of these Top 5 tanks of 2018, DO NOT BUY THE FREEMAX MESH PRO TANK!

  • Mjag: December 30, 2018

    Hard to fault your list, love all the tanks on it and the Mesh Pro is my tank of the year. The original Fireluke Mesh definitely deserves a spot on the list for changing the game, made mesh coils popular. It has been surpassed by the other tanks on the list, the Falcon and Crown 3 with the mesh coils are so damn good and spank the og fireluke mesh.

    The Crown 3 was a great tank, my favorite prior to the Fireluke Mesh. I used the hell out of that tank and continued to do so while reviewing.

    2018 was a great year for subohm tanks and mesh is what changed the game.

  • Mike : December 30, 2018

    I literally own seven mesh pro tanks from freemax. I’ve been in the game for a couple of years and have been waiting the entire time for a tank this amazing, so of course I threw everything else away and went mesh pro all the way across the board!!!

  • Nick: December 29, 2018

    My Falcon sub-olm tank with the M3 coils consistantly put out flavor on par with my RDA’s. I rarely use my RDA’s now because of this. IMO, Horizontech & Fireluke changed the game as far as what to expect from tanks. I also have the Smok V2, while it’s not bad, it’s nowhere near Falcon good.

  • jackcu: December 28, 2018

    I have two FreeMesh Max Pro tanks along with triple and quad coils. I wish the tanks would upgrade to 7mls

  • Tony: December 28, 2018

    Jordan, when you mark the mesh pro as your number 1 what coil do you personally have in yours? The single, dual, or triple mesh, or did you go with a duodenary or?

  • Dakota Simon: December 28, 2018

    To the comment from William about Smok V2 being a better tank than these top 5, lol. You’re either trolling your ass off or absolutely brain dead if you think the Smok V2 is a top 5 subohm tank. That, or you haven’t tried anything else worth a crap, because Smok doesn’t even come close to being as good as these top 5. I started vaping on a Smok TFV12 Prince and wasted so much time and money on that thing. I finally woke up and realized Smok is GARBAGE. They have zero flavor compared to the Freemax Mesh Pro; they’re just so behind, even their newest dual and triple mesh coils (that they copied after the Freemax Mesh Pro) don’t have anywhere near the flavor . They’re better than the regular Smok coils (which suck) but nowhere near the Mesh Pro. I tried the new V2 Baby coils 2 and could barely even taste my favorite juice. That’s because I have 5 Freemax Mesh Pro tanks that have unbelievable flavor. I’m assuming you’re like I was, stuck using Smok and not knowing how bad they suck, so I recommend you buy a Freemax Mesh Pro and a pack of their Dual & Triple Mesh Pro coils if you want your whole work changed. Hands down the Mesh Pro is the absolute best flavor sub ohm tank of all time, thus far.

  • Robert L. Wellington: December 28, 2018

    I have the HorizonTech Falcon tank with the new M 3 coil and absolutely love it. I couldn’t ask for a better coil that lady liner than all others. I use my vape a lot and don’t change my coil for 3 to 4 weeks. Yes it lasts that long. Also the flavor is excellent until the end of the coils life. The Falcon tank is easy to fill plus has an easy to adjust air flow system. I will not be trying any other tanks. I have found just what I want and nees in a tank. Thank you HorizonTech!!!

  • william: December 28, 2018

    NONE of the tanks listed come close to the Smok V2 baby with all 3 mesh coils The A 3 triple mesh being the best . Bigger tank capacity larger ports on the cotton entry beter design better paine on on.. why people think these fire tanks are good just baffles me to no end..
