The Subox Mini is one of the newest all in one kits made by KangerTach. You get everything you need to vape besides juice and batteries, which you can get really cheaply online. Let’s dive into what you get in the kit and how it works.
How it Works
Overall, the Subox is really simple to set up. I’m going to break the setup into two parts, the box and the tank.
To set up the variable wattage box that comes with this kit, you’re going to open the back panel and insert one fully charged 18650 battery (negative end up) into the battery compartment. The in near the top is spring loaded, so push the negative end of your battery into that and then just slid the positive end in. Then you put your back door on and you’re good to go.
The take is a bit trickier, but that is just because there are more options. The tank holds 4.5 ml of eliquid, and you have a 1.5 ohm coil, and 0.5 ohm coil, and a mini RBA base (where you can build your own coils) with a 0.5 ohm coil installed already (without wick). After you go through the non-RBA coil heads, you just throw them out. That being said, which coil you use will depend on the kind of vape you are.
For new vapers (those who are just switching from cigarettes), you’re going to want to use a higher PG and higher nicotine juice with the 1.5 ohm coil head. This will allow you to do mouth-to-lung inhales at lower wattage and still get that cigarette-like experience. You likely won’t get into coil building yet, as you’re still pretty new to this and just trying to not smoke. That being said, any vaper who prefers mouth-to-lung will want to use this coil head. It works like a dream.
For people who go more after clouds, the 0.5 ohm coil head will work for you. You can use high VG juice and crank those watts up for that thick, flavorful vapor. That being said, it’s best to use 75VG or lower juice, as wicking max VG can be hard on the coil. It won’t wick fast enough, and you’ll get a real bad burnt taste (which basically ruins the coil).
The RBA section lets you build your own coil to whatever specifications you want. It does take some practice, and if you want to dive into making your own coils, there is a bit of research you need to do first. Websites like steam-engine.org and Reddit’s many vaping subreddits will help tremendously for people just starting out with coil building.
The remainder of the kit is extra screws, extra o-rings, a screw driver, cotton, and a charging cable.
Overall, this is the best tank I’ve used to date. I use the RBA section almost exclusively (minus the testing i did with the other coil heads), and it is easier to wick than any other tanks I’ve tried. No dry hits, no gurgling, and only minor leaking (which was completely my fault, not the tank’s). It really offers everything a vaper needs all in one kit.
I’m currently running a 0.5 ohm coil at 34.6 watts, and one battery lasts me about two days. Now, I basically chain vape, going through 1.5-2 tanks per day, and the battery lasts me about two tanks. It charges really fast through the micro-USB, but I prefer to charge my batteries externally and just switch it with another one of my 18650’s that I have laying around. It’s the easiest and safest way I’ve found of dealing with a dead battery.
Overall, this tank is awesome. It has quickly become the single tank that I use the most. In fact, I haven’t stopped using it since I got it. If you’re looking to pick this up, head over to our friends at Hawk Vape, they have a bunch of Kanger products to choose from as well as other vape pen accessories, and pretty decent prices too. They are wholesale though, so if you’re just looking for a single unit, there are tons of options out there.
Keep on vaping and thanks for stopping by!
