Kanger KONE Starter Kit, finally got my hands on the new starter vape mod from Kangertech. Accoridng to the company this one offers a new design and new experience, below I will discuss the features and performance of this new device, let’s check if Kanger really did a good job.
Let me discuss first the box mod. Kangertech is known for replaceable batteries with their mods, so it is surprising to see that this mod has a built-in 3000mah battery.
For me this is one of the most basic box mods you can see in the market. At the top, you will see the 510 spring adapter for the atomizer and the 5 LED battery level display. At front is where the firing button is located and below that is the USB port where you will charge the mod and that’s it. Just plain, simple mod, no OLED display, no menus to tweak.
For me the design is very nice having the minimalistic approach, just one logo found on the side.
Powering the Kanger KONE is like a walk in the park, just click the firing button 5 times to turn the device on/off.
In addition, this mod is so small measuring only 90*23*44mm, any atomizers bigger than 22mm will not sit flush on it.
This tiny mod can handle 0.1ohm or higher, although I suggest using lower resistance coils to get more flavor and more vapor. I tested it using the Pangu Tank with the 0.5ohm coil that is included in the package; the flavor and the cloud were barely there. It seems like the mod was having a hard time heating up the 0.5ohm coil.
I tried using the Avocado 22mm RDTA with 0.3ohm Kanthal wires, and the result was different. I got great flavour and huge clouds.
I again tested it with my Tsunami RDA 22mm with 0.5ohm coils, and the results were almost the same with the Pangu tank.
The 3000mah battery held up pretty good, using it continuously for 1 hour, I only lost 1 light out of my 5 LED battery indicators.
Now the Pangu Tank, it has a preinstalled 0.5ohm coil. Looking at the features of this tank, it has a capacity of 3.5ml with top fill design which makes the filling of juice much easier. Just unscrew the top cap and pour in your juice.
This tank is very different from any other tanks, first thing I noticed was the chimney coil protrudes outside the top cap, so the drip tip will cover the top end of it.
Replacing the coil was much easier. The tank’s chimney has no screws at all, you just need to pull the coil out and slide a new one in which I think is very unique. When you place the top cap back, the top of the coil will serve as the control for juice flow holes. You can twist it to adjust or close the juice flow.
I am not sure why they made it that way, but for me that is a big negative for this tank as it tends to heat up when you start vaping and remember that the delrin drip tip will serve as the cover for tank.
At the bottom of the tank, you will see two huge air flow holes which are not adjustable. I really don’t like the idea of having non-adjustable air flows. I find the air holes too big and it somehow affects the amount of flavor and cloud that I’m getting.
As for the test, pairing this tank with the Kone mod using the preinstalled 0.5ohm, did not give the result that I was hoping for. It lacks both the flavor and the amount of cloud.
But when I tested it using my RX200s set to 95W, it gave out superb flavor and big clouds. However, the coil chimney/head where the drip tip is placed, got really hot, to the point that it was already uncomfortable for my lips, and this was just after 15 minutes of vaping.
- Very simple and easy to use. 5 clicks on the firing button is all you need to start vaping.
- I love the way of changing the coils, no screws needed making it super easy and less messy.
- The mod is so slim. Bigger atomizers will not look good sitting on this mod.
- Rattling firing button. When you shake the mod, you will hear the firing button rattle, it gave me the idea that it will come off eventually.
- The extended coil chimney. Not only does it heat up easily, it also has limited options in changing the drip tip.
- The mod lacks the power to heat up the 0.5ohm coil that comes with the package. My advice is to use lower resistance coils.
- Non-adjustable air holes.
The Kangertech Kone starter kit is one of the simplest mods out there. The design is solid and looks really durable. The big problem was that the coil included in the package, it is not the best setup that would suit the mod. Although Kone can fire the 0.5ohm, but you will not get the desirable results compared to using lower resistance coils.
