Kanger Sub Tank
This morning I juiced up a Kanger Sub tank. here are my initial impressions.
Construction and build quality are top notch. This is built incredibly solid and heavy. It has a very masculine look.
Fully loaded it holds about 5ml. The coil is another massive design and seems to be housed in a solid steel block with organic Japanese cotton. Air flow is all anyone could ask for. With three adjustments that are about as airy as one could ask for. Even the single opening has more air flow than a stock tugboat RDA. Deep lung hits are easy and even at the smallest setting it is more airy than I usually like.
The complete kit is really nice, it comes with a .50 ohm coil installed and a spare 1.2 ohm coil as back up. Also included are a 22mm trim ring so it will mount to any 22mm mech mod and look good. Also included is a re building deck with a very nice dual coil installed but not wicked but a small pack of Japanese organic cotton is included along with two additional machine made micro coils. on my Sigelei 100watt box the resistance is read as .60 ohms, the coil is marked with reccomeded wattage range of 15-30 watts ( I am 25 watts). Vape quality is very slightly warm and flavorful. It provides a very thick vape almost on the level of an RDA. The air flow settings are very positive and click into place and are not easy to knock off.

Compared to the Atlantis the Kanger is a better design with larger juice capacity, but is a larger design. versatility is better since there are a choice of two resistance levels and a rebuilding deck. The glass is going to be very easy to change if broken and the tank assembly has several internal "reinforcements".  Overall kanger really got this one right. I'm not seeing anything I think needs to be changed except maybe the color of the O rings since it has red O rings. Changing to the rebuilding deck does require a screw driver and can not be done "on the fly" but that is not really a big deal.

Overall I would say this is the highest quality Clearo that has been designed yet. Quality is above the Atlantis. Price is going to be higher than the Atlantis and I think performance exceeds the Atlantis by a little bit.

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
The red rings remind me of a clone Kayfun crystal nano kit

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
I have not tried the RBA yet. The stock coils are really good on their own

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
Been using the RBA adapter for two days. Air flow is reduced a little but still a bit better than a Lemo. The juice capacity is also reduced but I ahve been on this thing all day (14 hrs) and probably have about 2 hours of juice left to go. Flavor is very good. I fired and pinched the factory coils and they dropped to .46 ohms.

Overall Kanger really hit this one out of the park. I like it better than the Atlantis. way smoother vape.

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
Did yours not come with black seals in the box?  My Mini came with red installed, and black in the box, with a spare glass, and the cotton/screwdriver/etc.

I'm just now getting to the point where I sometimes wish it had more flow; with the RDA on there I start wishing I had more airflow at about 28 watts.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
Jaded, this review is from the original Subtank and I don't think that version came with the black o-rings. Sad my nano came with them and I love it.

RE: Kanger Sub Tank
I recently bought the Subtank Mini and mine came with the stock .5 and 1.2 ohm coils, RBA deck, mini blue screwdriver, black & red o-ring set, and replaceable glass. I'm brand new to SubOhming and i'm seriously in love with this tank! I'm using mine on an iStick 30w.
I actually switched mine to the black o-rings because it matches better with my stainless steel iStick.

To me, in a sense i'm re-learning how to vape, but that's fine with me!

And, I honestly love how I get more flavor with this tank, even though i'm using Max VG Ratio juices.
