One of the qualities that make the iQ VIVA one of our bestselling mods is its glass tank. Lots of vapers prefer glass to both plastic and pyrex — and even willing to pay a little bit extra for devices that feature a glass tank.
Glass is considered a premium material when it comes to vaping devices — and a glass tank will often be the most expensive part of your whole atomizer. So, sporting a glass tank on your vape kit is not cheap. But what do you get for the price? A glass vape tank looks really cool and gives the device a heavier and quality feel. But is it just about the aesthetics or are there functional advantages as well?
There are quite a few.
- First, you will be able to clearly see how much juice is left in the tank. And in order to do that, you won’t need to take the device apart, which makes things quite convenient.
- Second, a glass vape tank is compatible with all types of vape juices. And you definitely don’t want your e-liquid to get into a chemical reaction with the materials your tanks is made of. But this can sometimes happen with plastic tanks if you vape acidic e-liquids like apple or cinnamon, which will erode your tank over time.
- Third, flavors tend to taste better in a glass tank, compared to both plastic and pyrex.
- Finally, glass tanks tend to last longer as they are not affected by the corrosive e-liquids mentioned above — unless, of course, you drop your mod (actually, if you tend to do that a lot, plastic tanks may be a safer option).
Summing things up, there are quite a few reasons for why some vapers may prefer a mod with a glass tank. If you do, the iQ VIVA makes for a great option — complete with adjustable power settings, LED battery indicator and a 1100mAh battery.
