    Default Kanger Protank

    I've been vaping on this for a while and I hope this review helps some of you. I am not an expert, but I am an avid vaper and will be reviewing from that perspective.

    Build Quality: Top notch. I've dropped this a few times and the tank has held beautifully. I was afraid having dropped it on a concrete floor that it would break, but in my instance it did not. Maybe I just got lucky. I wish I could tell how thick the glass is...it looks pretty thick and I now feel it's solid and not going to break without some abuse. The glass came scratch free. The metal top is smooth and and free of visual imperfections. The metal bottom isn't as perfectly smooth as the top, but no one who is not examining it up close will ever see the minuscule imperfections.

    Feel: It's heavy. Being glass and metal I expected it would be. It will make some setups top-heavy, so consider lying your equipment on it's side if it does not have a generous flat base. I'm mainly using it on an iTaste MVP, and so far it has not toppled. The top feels smooth on the lips but hard on the teeth. Definitely not something I want to bite down hard or chew on.

    Vape Quality: So far I'm very very pleased on this aspect. I get heavy vapor and it's a joy use. However, if you're big on throat hit, this may not be for you. The vape is relatively cool being that it's a bottom coil passing through a metal tube. I like that, but I know not everyone will. Also being that it's a bottom coil, the liquid level can get pretty darn low and still vape well.

    Cleaning: I cannot say this enough - when you remove the protank from your device, be sure you are grasping the textured bottom and not the glass or smooth metal components! It's a bottom fill and I had a minor juicetastrophy because I unscrewed it and the bottom stayed attached to the device and the tank came off, spilling what was left in the tank. That was my fault, but seriously, be aware. I typically clean my equipment with a sink sprayer, not a great idea with this. The top does not come off and if the water jet is too fast, it will come squirting back at you. I use a lower setting on my sink sprayer for this one. Otherwise it cleans up just fine.

    Pro: I can use polycarbonate-unfriendly juices in it and that makes me very happy. The beauty ring that comes with the protank works great on the iTaste MVP and looks better than the ring the MVP came with. New heads are relatively inexpensive.

    Con: Extra care not to let the device tip over. Glass breaks. A little extra care goes a long way.

    Recommended? Yes, I would buy this again.

    Nice review. If I had designed the Protank, the threads that connect the main body to the base would be reverse.

    That's actually a great idea, Face Meat. I had the same issue with the EVOD. I'd been very careful about unscrewing these by the base, but when I got rushed I didn't think about it and a mess ensued. Luckily both times they were down to almost nothing. I wonder if anyone has suggested that to Kanger...

    Excellent idea! And the base would be bigger, for better finger grip. I've accidently unscrewed the tank from the base on mine twice and spilled fluid all over my mod thinking I was just taking the ProTank off. I agree with everything woof said but will add on build quality, it's just amazing! The fit and finish is flawless. The design is the easiest to clean and replace of any I've tried, which is granted, limited. That they channeled the bottom for better air flow shows careful engineering and design. That they included an Ego adapter ring is above and beyond. For $18 it's hard to fault this tank. If there is one, its too airy. That can be fixed with a little teflon tape but I image on the v2, they will tight up the draw. Even so, the airy draw is still good, you just have to adjust yourself to it. Once you do, its a great vape.

    It's MUCH easier to fix a tank that you think is too airy than one that is too tight!

    I will agree.... I just got my ProTank and I really like it. I've used iClears and they are great, but I fell in love with a cinnamon vape. I quickly realized that I can't find any replacement tanks for the iClear so I purchased one of these. My beloved SVD is in the shop, so I've been using the iClear and the ProTank on my old eGo batteries. The ProTank works flawlessly on the eGo. Plenty of vapor and flavor. I like the airy draw - much preferred to the tight draws of some of my other tanks.

    Since supplies for replacement heads for my Vivi Vision Nova Mini have been harder to find, I ordered a Protank and gave it a try. The taste of the juice is nowhere near the level of the Vision Mini. As soon as I get verified, I'm going to sell my Protank. The Protank looks good, built well but he execution of juice taste just didn't work for me. I hate it because the replacement heads are cheaper.

    I've tried a number of clearomizers but have yet to find one that matches the Vivi.
