Using the Kanger SubVod Mega TC has been a real pleasure and it's one of those great eGo style kits that's perfect for beginners. It might not deliver clouds as big as the Smok Stick One but it still gets the job done without flaws. The TC coils are a great addition, however I don't like the fact that you can't choose between at least three temperature settings like in the case of the eGo ONE VT from Joyetech.
Kanger have always released good quality products on the market and many of their kits managed to become absolute best sellers, however we didn't discuss anything about their eGo style devices so far. Well, today it's my pleasure to present to you one of their most recent additions to the sub ohm eGo family - the Kanger SubVod Mega TC Starter Kit, a simple yet versatile product that's suited for both beginners and intermediate vapers looking to enjoy big, flavorsome clouds.
The kit features a new and improved version of the original Subtank Mini, one of the most loved clearomizers of the last two years, and an equally powerful eGo style battery. It is available in four different colors – red, white, black, and stainless and it's a very simple one-button kit that's best suited for people constantly on the go.
The Kanger SubVod Mega TC comes packed in a slide-to-open black cardboard box, and inside you will find the battery, the Kanger Top Tank Mini in the same color fitted with a 0.15 Ni200 TC coil, a spare 0.5 Ohm Kanthal coil, a micro-USB charging cable in matching color, a user's manual and a coil priming guide.
The battery has a nice glossy finish and it's operated by a single round backlit button. The LED light gives various warnings from no atomizer or short-circuit to when it's time to recharge. It is rated at 2300mAh, which is roughly enough to last you for a whole day, but it all depends on your style of vaping. You can always easily recharge it via the micro-USB slot located on the side.
The Kanger SubVod Mega TC can be used in two different vaping modes – regular and temperature control. Two switch between modes you have to press the fire button three consecutive times and the LED color will change between green (TC) and red (regular wattage). You can't however change any of the settings in temperature control mode and it will just fire at a pre-set value determined by the resistance and current battery voltage. One thing you need to remember is to always use the Ni200 (blue grommet) coil in TC mod and the regular Kanthal 0.5 Ohm in power mode and not the other way around.
The Top Tank Mini that comes in the kit matches the color of the battery and it's basically a top filling version of the original Subtank Mini. It has a total capacity of 4ml of e-liquid and it's made from stainless steel and Pyrex Glass. It's very easy to refill by removing the top cap (it has some knurling) and to replace the obsolete coil heads by unscrewing the base. You can also use this tank with the RBA section (sold separately) but do remember to put the battery in power mode (red flashes).
The tank offers airflow adjustment to take it from restrictive mouth to lung to a very airy direct lung fog machine. One thing I noticed though is that the vapor is a bit cooler than on the original Subtank Mini, which makes me believe that the wattage delivered by the battery is a bit limited. However, this ensures a better autonomy and makes it even better for mouth to lung (with the smallest airflow setting).
