    Default New Kanger Coils

    Have no clue why I can only post here, but whatever. Yesterday I went to get some T3 coils and the fellow who works at Vapor Burst told me that the Kanger coils were changed. I guess the threaded unit on the bottom of the coil is now non-disposable, and only the wick section is changed. Soooo sad, the new ones, for lack of a better word, suck. I purchased one of the new coils with a cartomizer tube, bought it at 2:30 PM, and it lasted till about 6:30 PM. Thought I had a defective unit, so I went back today and got 1 replacement wick section ($4.00, I was paying $2.95 for the whole unit including the threaded section), it is now 9:00 PM and the wick is no good.

    If this is going to be the only Kanger available, it is bye bye Kanger. If not, I will keep buying what i was buying, which was nothing short of awesome.

    If anyone knows whether this is a permanent thing or not, please post. If it is a permanent thing, can you recommend an alternative? I hated the vivi novas, the wicks burnt out quickly and the taste was horrific. I would like to find something comparable to the Kanger T3 if the change is permanent. Suggestions appreciated.

    BTW, my Vamo Mod is awesome, 2 months now and going strong. Glad I got the Vamo. It was suggested on this forum, so I am grateful, and looking forward to good feedback on this new issue. I went through an e-Vic, and a Smok telescopic, both lasted about 30 days if that, before they just broke. The eVic was a huge disappointment, paid a lot of $$$ for a unit that is very poorly put together, crappy glue, etc.

    Sounds like you are being ripped -

    Kanger T3s/MT3s Coil Replacement ** 5 Pack - 2.2 ohms $6

    Kanger coils rarely have the issues you describe................. unless you are vaping Tar. Average coil will last several tank fills before needing a cleaning.

    ETA - my eVics(2x) are 8months old and my Vamo 10 so................................... never mind.

    Yep, your being ripped.....They may be selling the clones from Fasttech.......who knows. I like the 1.8 ohm coils and vape them at 3.4 to 3.7 volts. Clean every couple of days.

    You must have 5 posts before you can post anywhere but the New Members Forum

    Get a Kanger Protank and the heads will work and can be rebuilt. That'll fix you right up.

    I agree about the Vamo and that you must not have genuine Kanger coils. The knock offs are horrid

    Whoa,

    How do I clean these??? Never heard of cleaning them, was never advised to do so. Maybe this is why I am having such a short duration with these. My average time with the Kanger with the threaded bottom section attached is 1 week, have not been able to get them to last longer. The new ones, maybe 6 hours.

    I am using a PG Zero nicotine cigar flavor liquid. There is no tar. Why would anyone make an e-liquid with tar?? The whole point is to not have tar and carbon monoxide.

    I purchased original Kanger coils in the black Kanger box 2.0 and 1.8. Let's say three weeks into using the same 2.0 coil it was still working before switching to 1.8 which I love! Less resistance, vapes quicker, supposed to be a warmer vape but I can't tell, and going strong. I did see the coils at Fastech and other sites dirt cheap. One site had them for about 1.50 ea in 5pk. and I suspect you're being sold the knockoff version if getting a few hours or even days before dying on you. Received a 5pk box today of Kanger 1.8 which I paid $10 free shipping from a auction site/vendor online.

    Find another supplier.
    You gonna eat that Kimchi?

    maybe this is why I've been having a hard time finding

    I have always bought them as one piece with base included with these can they fit on existing base or do I need a new one?

    did they stop making the one piece
