Kanger ProTank 3 6.6

Loved my PT Mini's so expected the Pro Tank to improve my vaping experience . No better than the mini in any respect , just increased capacity. I actually prefer the Mini. Twice the price of the mini on Amazon, no problem with build quality being Kanger but disappointing performance. Consigned to my box of shame.

Kanger ProTank 3 10.6

I love this clearomiser. So well built, delivers great flavour, no leaking or flooding, very easy to use and clean out, spare coils are cheap so it promises to perform and deliver for years. For the price it's an incredible piece of kit.
It's my home vape, I use Mini Protank 3's when out of the house - a benefit is that the coils are the same, so I can keep just one set of spares. The large, Pyrex tank is big enough for an all day vape, fluid sits from one day to the next without leaking. Delivers gollops of flavour.
The air slots in the base are huge, it draws freely so I have no issues with the 510 beauty ring as a skirt/throttle, in fact no issues at all with anything about it. Joyful.

Kanger ProTank 3 7.2

The Pyrex tank is great. The aesthetic is killer. The PT3 even looks nice on some 22mm Stainless mech mods, which can't be said for too many pre-built atomizers.

If it weren't for the existence of the Aspire BDC, I might actually like the PT3 more. Biggest problem is the massive muting of flavors. The other problem is flooding. All PT3 owners experience this at one point or another. Even when you do everything right. There is a tiny, somewhat helpful trick to the PT's flooding issues.

What most people fail to realize is that in addition to coming with a replacement head, the PT3 also comes with an "eGo Skirt". However, this "Skirt" or "Thread Adapter" isn't merely to hide the threads of your eGo connection. It acts as a throttle device to tailor the airflow of the PT3. (That's why there are no grooves on the PT3's accompanied "Skirt". While other eGo thread-cones feature airflow-grooves) When screwed down, the Skirt is just enough of a distance away from the base of the installed ProTank to make a difference. You can then slowly back the Skirt up the threads, closer to the base of the PT3 as if you were unscrewing it, thus controlling airflow. The farther from the PT3 base it goes, the more open the airflow becomes.

There are no included directions with regard to this small feature, but there should be. Airflow control is a biggie. Especially with this tank.

The PT3 proprietary coil-head design is just too "open" to thinner, high-PG ratio juices, and this causes flooding issues. It can be controlled somewhat by using the aforementioned "throttle-skirt". Too much vacuum-pressure on the tank from hard-draws can force too much liquid inside. One can also disassemble the tank, and push the silicone gasket which sits atop the head ass'y down towards the threading a bit more. This acts to further close off the head from excess juice supply which is what it was designed for.

Kanger needs to go back to the drawing board and figure out a way to bring the flavor back into their flagship tank device.
