Kanger Protank

They Say...

The Kanger Protank 2 from Kraken Ecigs is the big brother to the popular Evod and the latest version of the Protank from Kangertech. The Protank 2 is fully replaceable and strips right down unlike the Protank 1. Kangers track record of making atomisers and tanks that just produce great flavour continues with the Protank 2, making it a fantastic tank for first time vapers and old hands alike.

Smoked for 15 years, vaped from early 2013 - WOW what a difference. Really enjoy tasting something nice and not stinking of smoke all the time. Run marathons these days, couldn't have imagined that when I was smoking.
They sayI've moved on from this a bit these days, but when I used the Protank I loved it.

Kanger Protank 5.8

Standing on it's own the PT3 is OK. However, at $19-29 per unit, they just don't compare to some more cheaply-priced competitors amongst these entry-level, Non-RBA tanks.

The stock heads are notorious for being duds, and BE WARNED: The PT3 does not play nicely with thinner (PG-Heavy) E-Liquids. If you use an 70+% VG mix, you're in good shape. However, using 50/50 liquids, the PT3 floods terribly, thus rendering it unusable. Unless of course, you like to drink your juice.

These are easily modified into rebuildable, so that is a nice point. However, put up against an $11-15 Aspire Vivi Nova BDC (also Pyrex-lined) the flavor, draw, vapor, and warmth are all superior in the cheaper Aspire unit. The Aspire also produces WAY MORE vapor, and much warmer vapor at that.

I bought this as an impulse buy at a local B&M, and it was $29.99! WHAT? This isn't a Nautilus! Luckily I had a coupon to take it down to $23 w/Tax.

If it's the "only-game-in-town", the PT3 is meh. Compared to the iClear30B, or the AWESOME Aspire BDC, I am not impressed.

Kanger Protank 9.0

The protank 2 is a pretty good solid beginners Clearomiser.

Out of the box mine was very good, especially coming from a suspect CE5 atty.

Most of the down points have been listed by others.

To add to that list I'll include having to do primer pulls, I only have to do them using one Hangsen Banana juice because it's a little thicker in consistency than all my other juices and sometimes an air bubble can get trapped around the head giving a dry burn.

Apart from that it's a nice device. vapes pretty well for the money and rebuilding heads is easy once you get used to it :)

Plusses
  • Pyrex tanks
  • Pricing & Spares
  • Material finish
Minors
  • Rubber insulator plug!

Kanger Protank 10.4

I have had every Kanger tank to date and I can honestly say that they finally got it right with this one. The fixed the super airy draw from version 1. I have not gotten any of the gurgling or other issues that I had with version 1. This tank is easy to take apart and clean which in my opinion is a huge plus.
I would suggest rebuilding the heads yourself instead of buying new ones. Set them up with tome SS Mesh, and you will have a way better cape.

Kanger Protank 9.2

Great product, through and through. I typically prefer clearos like T3's until I had my first protank. No looking back now. Great performance and looks. They hold quite a bit of liquid that gets me through most of the day. Very solid performance and ease of use. I love being able to just replace a coil when needed or rebuild them if you have the skill to do so. as some have mentioned, the stock heads can be a little iffy but replacements have always been great.

Wick type used: Silica
Mod body used: MVP
Coil type: Single
Bought from: Vapors-choice

Plusses
  • Pyrex tank, un-crackable by juices
  • Performance
  • Ease of use for replacing coils
Minors
  • Pyrex tank - Don't drop it on concrete!
  • Stock heads are hit or miss

Kanger Protank 8.8

I have a couple of the first Protanks and it's true the stock heads are rubbish but they are cheap and easy to rebuild. The airy draw is nice for light fruit or menthol flavours but I find the shorter stemmed Evod head works much better in these. Once you've cracked your wick and coil prefs these are pretty sturdy and reliable tanks and I haven't had any leaks so far although I like to travel light so I tend to use them mostly at home. Ukecigstore brands these as Aqwa rather than Kanger.

Kanger Protank 9.2

The Kanger Protank series is a nice Pyrex (and thus tank-cracking juice friendly) entry level Atomiser. It is a Bottom fed device so you rarely get dry hits.

It is cheap and easy to recoil/wick and is a great starting point for people looking to get into rebuildables and bring the running costs of vaping even further down.

The draw can be a little airy for some, so it might not be for you if you like really tight draws.

The only real downside is the stock Protank and Evod heads are woefully inconsistent. Even if you've never recoiled anything before, you might get a better running piece of kit with your first ever rebuild.

These have the tendency to flood and gurgle with a poor head, but if you get some wick and coil (you're going to be rebuilding it sooner or later) then the problem is solved.

The build quality is ok, but the earlier models don't come apart completely (the Protank 2 does however)

Wick type used: Silica
Mod body used: Vamo V3
Coil type: Single
Bought from: Vape Escape

Plusses
  • Cheap to buy and rebuild
  • No dry hits as it is bottom fed
  • Pyrex
Minors
  • Stock heads are pretty bad
  • Leaking can occur with a bad head
