Rats, I Broke a Drip Tip
This is the first Drip Tip I have actually broken off. I hit the door jamb with it and it snapped off level with the tank carto top. No big deal, easily got the remainder out of the carto. Sadly it was my black ming vase - I'd just ordered a 2nd one so I'd have two - isn't that the way of things :rolleyes:
I seem to recall someone else here saying they kept breaking their DTs taking them out of tanks. It got me wondering, how many DTs have other people broken? Are you a serial DT assassin?
Glad you have another one on the way Katz!!
I have to say that I have yet to break a DT. I haven't even broken an o-ring yet! Which surprises me.
I am sure my day will come, but knock on wood, I still have all my original drip tips. Of course, I am still fairly new to tanks and they are the only thing I use them with, so time will tell. I do wish they would get some more colors in the ming drip tips however.
Broken 2 ming drip tips Ms. Katz, both with the same results as yours only they were from dropping a heavier mod.... Boke my red ming on the OMG all day two days ago when it fell off the table. Mod's fine at least.
That is the one reason I really like the OMG mod, I don't tend to drop it as much. It stays on the table much nicer.... but I know the day will come where I can add the broken ming tip to my list of vaping accomplishments :D
I've yet to break one Katz but I've lost more than I care to think of. I should probably check under the sofa cushions, may have some stored there along with change, a phone and a remote or two. ;-)
Katz, I broke two of the ribbon swirl drip tips in one week! I could have pulled them out crookedly...........very careful to pull out straight now!
Probably unrelated but I have noticed in the past that the acrylic DTs like clear polycarbonate tanks and Delrin end caps can get compromised from certain juices.
Below is a picture of 3 Tanks...(left to right)..A frosted Tank which is corrosion resistant, a normal clear polycarbonate tank, and a compromised corroded clear polycarbonate tank. The tank tube is not stained, it is actually corroded and dried out with tiny cracks.
The corroded clear tank was used with a cinnamon flavor which not only ruined the tank, but softened the Delrin end caps to the point they felt like a crayon that had been sitting in the sun. I no longer use acrylic drip tips, Delrin tanks, or clear polycarbonate tank tubes for this very reason, I can't help but think that chemicals from the Tank tube, DT, and Delrin end caps leached into my e-juice.
Food for thought....
Amos has replaced his tanks with ones he made from syringes he got at Tractor Supply. You might want to look into that.
Also, still no pics...
Sorry, but my list of damaging juices is so far out of date that I won't repost it. But I do remember that ALL cinnamon do that.

Yeah, I have a cinnamon juice that I absolutely love!!! But now that I only use tanks the juice just sits around being unused :(
