Leaky Carto, Cracked tank? White film or ghosted apparence on the inside of the plastic? The cause could be your eLiquid.
We do not cover damage from acidic or harsh liquid as it can crack a tank or clearomizer quite quicky. Please ask your liquid vendor what is in the liquid and if it is known to crack tanks.
If we receive a tank or clearomizer cracked due to liquid it will not be replaced. We are able to determine the cause of the cracking.

This is not a comprehensive list, just what is reported at this time and may NOT be accuurate.
There is an ongiong list here on ECF
And we update the list above occasionally Please check that list before using.
Please note, we do NOT know for certain that any vendors flavors crack tanks, please ask the vendor if they are on this list, they may be listed unfairly and it is NOT us saying these liquids crack tanks. this list is just what others have posted on ECF.
It is recommended not to use anything listed above, you can but clearomizers are not warrantied for this purpose, also keep in mind that when something "eats" away at the plastic or cracks a plastic, that residue is going into your lungs.
