The Kraken Tank

They Say...

The Kraken Tank By Vicious Ant is an amazing piece of engineering, made from 304 grade steel and quartz. This is the absolute final word in luxury vaping.

I will not be stocking the hybrid itself, only the tank, price is for tank with 510 connection only.

The Kraken is very excited to have partnered up with Vicious Ant Precision Engineering & Research to bring his namesake hybrid to the UK ecig market!

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.

The Kraken Tank 8.8

I originally bought a clone and the tank split in half within days but I did like the setup so I invested in the genuine article. The Vicious Ant Kraken is far superior to the clone so do not be taken in by reviewers who say there is little difference. The build quality is excellent and not a white metal screw in sight.

I bought the brass version (which is brushed brass unlike the clone) It looks superb on both my brass mechanical mods; the Steel Punk Slug and the Antigo.

Whilst the recommended mesh coiling is easy to set up it is a sausage to get right and even after 10 minutes or so of adjusting the coils to eliminate hot spots I still got dry hits and a subtle but unacceptable metallic taste. Ok so that is probably just me and my two left thumbs but don't say you have not been warned.

Kanthal wire coiling and cotton pad wicking however is really another matter. This review gives no drop down option for cotton so I have entered silica but there really should be a cotton option because if you want good results quickly cotton wicking and micro coils are the way to go especially with the more subtly flavoured juices. It is simplicity itself with no dry hits. It is also surprising how little juice escapes with this set up even when the unit is laid on its side. I should note here that this atomiser is not designed to be put down in a horizontal position so although it is a tank you must be prepared to change your habits a little if coming directly Protanks or the likes of the Aspire. I find the Slug an ideal mod for this reason as would any box type mod.

For newcomers to rebuilding it is worth getting yourself a ohmmeter some stainless mesh (400 gauge is a good bet) some decent Kanthal wire and some cotton pads and experiment. A long needle hypodermic syringe is a must for filling. Also be prepared to get through juice like never before. The Kraken has a 2.5ml tank but you have entered the realms of the juice consumption of the old Jaguar XJS...is it worth it...like an XJS...hell yes!

In conclusion this is not a cheap rebuildable tank but you get what you pay for and what you pay for is excellent design and build quality. It is easy to coil and wick but take my advice and watch a few of those instructional videos on YouTube. Yes they do leave you feeling as if you have joined a community of Airfix model making trainspotters but they really can save you an awful lot of heartache.

The Kraken Tank 10.6

I suppose the looks of the this atomizer and mod combo are subjective. However I think it looks fantastic. The atomizer as with all vicious ant products is great quality with an outstanding finish. The only negative point I can make is that whilst it comes with an allen key to remove some screws, it doesn't come with a screwdriver to loosen and tighten the posts where you would put your coil. So you will need a small-ish screwdriver if you buy this.
