When we review subtanks those produced by Kangertech are often portrayed very favourably and the Kanger Subtank Nano is no exception. It is right up there with the best of them in terms of adaptability and performance. We decided to take a look at it ourselves and review it because of all the positive things we have heard about it; it is also hard for us to give you any buying advice without trying something out ourselves and by doing that it gives us a chance to experiment with the vaping pastime we love so much too. Here are the conclusions we came to with the Kanger Subtank Nano.
Key Features and Specifications
Here are a few of the unique features that we feel contributed significantly to this subtank’s performance and looks:
- Can connect to all 510 devices
- Pyrex glass tank
- 3 ml tank capacity
- Very sturdy for its small size
- The airflow system is enhanced for optimal control and performance
- Extremely small and compact design
- Japanese organic cotton coil heads
- Short 5 mm width
- 510 compatible. Should only be used with devices that can produce at least 25 watts of power
Here is what comes in the kit:
- 1 x Subtank Nano (60 mm length with drip tip, 47 mm length without drip tip)
- 1 x Sub-ohm 0.5 15-30 watt range
- 1 x 1.2 ohm 12-25 watt range
- 1 x Owner’s manual and user’s guide
When we first saw the Kanger Subtank Nano, we could not help but think holy cow this device is small and it looks a little bit silly on a mech. The Kanger Subtank Nano is not only the smallest of the Kanger Subtanks but it is also the smallest subtank made that can be used with sub-ohm devices.
The only drawback because of its size is the Kanger Subtank Nano has no RBA capability like its bigger siblings the Kanger Subtank and the Kanger Subtank Mini. Although this clearomiser is not as customisable don’t let that fool you; the Kanger Subtank Nano is pretty revolutionary in performance all on its own without any modifications (There are some slight changes that can be made to the Nano). This little clearomiser truly packs a lot of punch for its size.
We really liked the adjustable airflow feature. They always have done a nice job of varying the vaping experience on other clearomisers that we have tested. Like the other Kanger Subtanks the Nano also featured Japanese organic cotton coil heads; again these always seemed to add to the performance of the clearomisers that they were featured on.
The small amount of fluid that the subtank holds was actually a generous amount for its little size.
Giving It a Test Run
We certainly were anxious to take this little clearomiser for a test spin. It was hard to believe that a clearomiser that was this small could live up to all the hype that surrounded it. Now it was time to find out.
The Kanger Subtank Nano was extremely easy to install and it did not require anything but what came in the kit. And yes, with its small 22 mm diameter it did look a little strange on some of the devices that we tried it on. Often, the clearomiser itself was smaller than the diameter of the batteries. When handling it, its small size did not significantly unbalance any device we attached it to and of course it made them weigh a little bit less.
Although in our tests the Kanger Subtank Nano did not leak at all, there have been some rumours that there have been some leaking problems. Don’t fret here because that is actually a very common thing in clearomisers when they get below 1/3 full; just fill it up again and the leaking will stop. The manufacturer emphasises this in the owner’s manual that they provide in each Kanger Subtank Nano kit.
We found the performance of the Kanger Subtank Nano to be very good no matter what ohm coil was installed. The hit and flavour was as good as any other clearomiser in its class that we tested, maybe even more so in a few of our opinions. For a little product it produced an exceptional amount of vapour and the enhanced flavour of each vape was very impressive too.
Not only in our review but in others too, the word revolutionary came up time and time again. The Kanger Subtank Nano is like a plug and play device on a computer, it will just enhance the performance and quality of any compatible e-cig device. This little clearomiser will pleasantly surprise you for sure.
