    So my tank was on way to tight and I'm the process of me screwing it off it cracked and broke. I'm still new to this whole thing. I literally bought a Kanger Subox mini 3 days ago. I honestly can't go without please help.

    So... you're asking for us to provide you with either a tank or money? Good luck with that. :giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle::giggle:

    Start calling local vape shops to see which will sell you replacement glass for the best price

    Well, you ARE being rather vague about what it is you're looking for exactly.

    Your best bet is to do what Lucy suggested and see if a local shop has the glass.
    If it were me, I would buy two or three. I break shit and believe in having backups for my backups.

    Thanks firebird. Khassy all I am asking for is if I can use my Vape without the glass replacement until I can get a new one.

    Is it leaking?
    I've had that happen several times, and consider it a really bad idea in general.
    If the shop charges more than 5$ for a glass tube you're getting dateraped.

    I doubt it. Have you tried duct tape? Would depend on how badly it's cracked, I guess.

    I seem to remember a thread a few months back where someone used their tank as a dripper after the glass broke and they couldn't replace it for a few days.

    It was extreme but got them through a tough patch if I recolllect

    Most shops carry kanger so you should be ok and it should be under $5

    Sorry buddy. But accept the fact that your tank is broken. Don't try to fix it. You can:
    1. Replace the glass via local or online shop
    2. Buy a replacement tank. I think those tanks are Easily under $20.
    3. Now you have learned that you don't have to over crank your tank when assembling it. It's the O-rings that keeps it from leaking. Not your super human strength.
    4. Buy a tank (vape) band to reduce the possibility of breaking the glass should you drop the tank.

    Here's a good option for a spare tank. Can't beat the price of $8.
