    When I was looking for a clearomizer and for info on these T2s, I couldn't find anything except a video review that looked like it was coming from an affiliate. So I thought I'd throw a review up since I have nothing to gain, not an affiliate, not a supplier etc. and others might be looking for an unbiased source. (and my favorite unbiased reviewer, PBusardo, hasn't gotten to these yet.)

    First, I'll never go back to cartomizers - I always misjudge them and either overfill or burn the suckers. I will likely try a tank system at some point though.

    Now I'm on day 3 with this T2 clearomizer and I couldn't be happier. It doesn't leak except for one time I didn't screw the top on completely. Vapor and taste are the best I've had so far, although my experience is pretty limited. Basic stats: It fits on an Ego connection. Holds 2.4ml. Single coil and 1.8ohm. I'm using it with a KGO. It's got two tiny little wicks that wick great. I do make a small effort to swirl juice around and make sure they stay wet. Haven't had a single dry hit.

    Negatives: You won't easily get 2.4ml in it unless you're using a syringe. When you unscrew the top, the coil/head will partly unscrew along with the mouthpiece. Result of that was a really tough draw until I tightened the head back up. Also, you can't use your own drip tip with it.

    Verdict. Thumbs up. Now if say I'm gonna vape my face off, I can actually do it :vapor:

    Couple final things. Quick price comparison with the vision changeable-coil clearos. 1 T2 = $6. 1 CC vision = $7. Five coils for the t2 = $8. Five coils for V3(?) CC vision = $20.

    Hope that's useful.

    Have you tried the Stardust? Can you compare the flavor and draw of t2 vs stardust?

    Can't compare it to the vision (haven't tried it.) But as a point of reference, I can compare to the two brands of cartomizers I've tried. Boge and HC kanger, both single coil. The flavor is on par with either of those, but the draw is tighter. Definitely less airflow through the clearo.

    I got two of these after seeing the Lord Davon review on Youtube (One clear / One blue). At first I didn't like them. Tasted like plastic. However, I decided to fill them w/ vodka and leave them for thirty minutes. Let them dry overnight. I tried them the next day and didn't think I would like them. I was pleasantly surprised. These work really well for me, and are a nice companion for the ego twist when out and about. They hit well, and I really like that they hold 2.4 ml. I haven't had any leaks yet, and the blister pack of replaceable heads are very economical. They are not as good as dripping (But what is), but they are flavorful and very convenient. Flavor for me has gotten better after the initial fill, and they have a good throat hit (Actually had to dial them down under my standard 4.3 Volts; I have a DIY juice that has cinnamon I was under 4 with).

    Thanks for the review. I have one coming in the mail and had not heard much about them.

    Mine came in today and they may become my go to system. Filled it and started vaping and it wicks better than anything else I've used. These may be the drip fill system I have been searching for as IMHO the Stardust family is a waste of money. CE3s are my daily carry right now but I will bring this pair to work tomorrow (with a few CE3s in reserve)...

    I received mine today too. I've been vaping it about five hours and it has worked very good so far. Overall as of now I like it better than any other ego type clearos I've tried. It holds almost a ml more than other ego clearos and it produces a very flavorful vape. I will be using it with my ego type PV's and my Vivi Nova's with my larger PV's for now anyways. lol

    Seems I lucked out on my first clearo. I'm going to have to try a vision anyway though just to satisfy curiosity. But the short wick version if I can find one.

    In my opinion the T2's are much better and I think I've tried all the versions except the ones with replaceable heads and I have a couple coming in the mail. I know all about satisfying the curiosity bug. lol

    I received them today too. I think these will replace my fluxomizers if they don't have problems later. The only issue I get is an ever so slight leak from the tip that leaks on the outside of the tube. Only tried one tube though and the leak is so slight... like running you finger over an oily part of your skin after using it for a while.

    I tried 2 of the T2's and always got a harsh plasticy chemical taste and i cleaned them twice and filled them about 4 times a piece and still the same result so I tossed them. I've had great flavor from the Phoenix Bottom Coil's (When they work) and E1 Revive's (When they work), but I've been having bad leaking issues from both of those

    Same with T2 flavor that harsh plasticy chemical taste yes and E1 i love them I was using them with an eGo-C original base and I was sometimes getting burning dry hits now I changed to a base of them it's working amazing! I love the E1 and flavor it so much like a Carto with RY4 I cannot see difference

    I'm absolutely in love with the Kanger T2.
    It's best, easiest tank I could find that gives a hit and flavor comparable to my favorite cartomizers (Boge LR).
    I've tried many tanks, including the SmokTECH DCT, eGo DCT, liquinator, vision, vision v3, and others and the Kanger T2 is above the rest.
    At least in this form factor, I don't want a tank twice the diameter of my eGo batteries...

    However, I seem to be getting a really short life span out of the atomizer heads.
    They hit and taste great for about 2 days then I start to get a burned flavor/taste.
    I can alleviate it by fiddling with the head, plastics, wicks, cleaning and rinsing but not get it to completely go away.
    Usually it's sporadic, almost as if it's not wicking fast enough to keep the coil wet but does become consistent.
    A warm water rinse may help but usually half a day or so...

    Anyone else experiencing burning and flavor loss so quickly?
    Something I'm doing, or not doing to get a little longer life out of them?

    Thanks!

    -I've had these for a little over a week, and started to get a leak on both around the cap seal. The same way- (Slight leak; Oily residue around the top band). I could be wrong, but I believe the O-Ring on the cap is not sufficient enough to prevent juice from running through the gap at where the atty head is (Mixed blessing; Easy fill, but easy leak if tipped or jostled around). I tried this, and it seems to have worked at least for the last day (I'm sure someone smarter than me can come up w/ a better solution).
    -First: I pulled out some old Stardust (Dead Ones / I'm bad about saving stuff just in case I need parts or something): I took the mouthpiece off the Stardust, and removed the tiny O-Ring from the cap (Dabbed a little vodka on it to clean).
    -Second: Inside the Stardust (Inside the top of the tube) is a larger O-Ring. It's easier to get this out if you go down. Literally just took a pair of tweezers and rubbed the O-Ring downward. If you try to pull it from it's current set, it may tear. Then I removed it.
    -Third: I placed the smaller ring (From the Stardust mouthpiece) above the wicks on the T2 (Still on the silicone sleeve).
    -Fourth: I screwed in the T2 atty
    -Five: Fill w/ juice (There will still be a gap, but smaller). I use old Tasty Vapor needle point bottles, but I'm sure a syringe, or whatever will work.
    -Six: Put the larger O-Ring (From the Stardust) on top of the slightly exposed opening of the T2. It will rest on top of the the other O ring that provides support. Then screw the cap back on.

    Positives: No leaks (At least so far). Negatives: Hate that I had to fiddle w/ something, and easy filling just went out the window. However, after a few times of use, I have to clean the atty's anyways (May be my DIY juice), so I guess it's okay. 2.4 ml's on a twist last me a long time anyways, so for now (Until quality control improves), I guess this will work (At least for me). I still like the Phoenix Bottom Coils better.

    I just got one, vaped about one ml so far, looks great on an ego twist, wicking and flavor definitely needs to improve, im taking a few dry pulls here and there to help with wicking, hopefully it gets better for me, did this improve for anyone after a few ml's? did it work immediately? ive been enjoying my phoenix top coil with the new little o rings to help prevent the gurgling, flavor is the best that ive tasted so far, they do crack easily though. TXTumbleweed, if you read this just wanted to tip my cap to you. When I first started vaping, I read your posts on the GOGO, hence my first purchase, so it was your advice that really got me going, just wanted to say thanks!

    I've tried 2 tubes and they both worked immediately with full flavor, other than a drag or two. Some people mention pulling the silicone away from the wicks a bit allows more juice to the coil. I use 80/20 pg/vg ratio and didn't have to do anything. I got the slightly newer long wick version without the bottom silicone at Discount Vapers, but I hear great things about the older model head too.

    These have become my number #1. Just on day 3 or so though. I'll see if time changes my opinion.

    Well, I've fallen out of love with the Kanger T2.
    I love the warmth and vapor, when it's working well.
    However, I've had too many inconsistent hits (dry, burned, not wicking well/fast enough) and broken two mouth pieces in a week or so.
    If you tighten them just a little too much, or after several refills it seems, the plastic separates at the seem.
    And since I can't buy extras, I'm forced to keep buying new tanks.

    So, any suggestions for a tank of similar size with similar performance (warmth/vapor wise) with a little better build quality and more consistent vapor production?
    Perhaps I should move to cartomizer tanks, I just haven't found one that works as good a cartmoizer by itself.

    Edit: BTW, I was using the short wick w/cup heads. Are the long wicks working better?
