Kanger Subox Mini vs iStick 100W?
Hi guys,
Im reading more than 1 week and im still confused.
Im new here and i want to buy my first mod.
Im considering buying the Subox mini or the iStick with some kind of RDA on it.

In my country I have access only to this devices, i can purchase from UK or China but i want it until christmas, so i should chose between this two devices.
I can get my RDA/accessories from UK.

What are you suggesting?

Hi Christian. If your new to vaping I'd go for the kanger. After a while and some research you can always move on to rda's.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

The SubBox is a great setup with lots of room to grow before you need anything like the i100.

Definitely go with the kanger. A 100w device is nice but the iStick is not built well. The firing button can be an issue. It has a bad rattle. It reads coils inconsistently. Now I use my iStick every evening only because it has a nice battery life. I generally vape 45 watts and lower so a kanger suits me and is much better built.

RE: Kanger Subox Mini vs iStick 100W?
Eleafs Isticks arent that great.  They have internal batteries so you have to charge them via USB and that sucks. My wife broke hers after a few months. The whole charger port (just a metal USB port with one solder onto the chip/board) broke completely making it impossible to charge. Not only that but I know people who had auto firing issues with theirs which can be VERY DANGEROUS.

My brothers first vape was the kanger  sub box and its STILL kicking to this day.  From my experiences, anything with the name Kanger Tech, Or SIGELEI have been SOLID.

I order an Snowwolf guys with TFV4 atomizer.
I take it for a nice price.

Now im learning about the steeping, breading and etc, and will start making my own juices.

Can you suggest me some threads for beginners?

Also thanks for the replays here Smile You are very friendly community.

Actually the Istick 100w is not an internal battery. It is a dual 18650. That said it still is not that well made. As for USB ports - my evic VTC port stopped working after a month. As it happens I'm fine charging my batteries externally so that is not an issue for me but it is annoying. The kanger is the way forward if you want reliability.

I'll go with the Kanger Subox Mini over the iStick 100W because I am a fan of Kangertech. Eleaf disappointed me with the iStick 50W with too much issues.

Kanger makes some nice gear , if the sub box mini is half as well built as the kbox it will be a solid investment .
there will always be room in my collection for Kanger products
