Many people who tested out the Kanger ProTank when it was released were not really happy with the way it operated. It had a metal drip tip that was permanent, it was too heavy and unbalanced, and its draw was too airy. It simply did not produce the type of vape that most people expected, making it quite a disappointment for a good number of people who had higher expectations for it.
Now Kanger is back with the ProTank 2, which is almost a 100% remake of the original ProTank. What people did not like about the original has now been changed, clearly proving that Kanger cares about what people have to say about their products, and that they are willing to change their devices in order to meet consumers’ demands.
So now that all of these changes have been made, how does the Kanger ProTank 2 really stack up against the competition? Is it worthy of your money and time now? Check out the review below to learn more about it.
Key Features and Specifications
- Pyrex glass
- Holds 2.5ml of e-liquid
- Replaceable drip tip
To get started, let’s first discuss what exactly the upgrades are on the Kanger ProTank 2. First off, because this device does not contain any glue, you can take all of the components apart and easily replace them whenever you purchase individual parts. It also features a more solid base, so there isn’t any need to fear any longer that it will end up tipping over and breaking. And that annoying permanent metal drip tip is also gone. In its place is the option to use virtually any 510-threaded drip tip that you wish. As you can see, all of these changes are welcome upgrades.
Other features on the Kanger ProTank 2 can be considered pretty standard for this type of device. And you can even use this device with EVOD replaceable heads. This will allow you to find a way to get the perfect draw rather than have to deal with one that you don’t enjoy.
Also, because this is a bottom coil device, it wicks really well. The Pyrex glass is solid and reliable, and it is able to hold 2.5ml of your favourite e-liquids. Going back to the fact that there is no more glue, this device also now looks very polished, clean, and professional.
Giving It a Test Run
Ultimately, this device is everything that the original ProTank could have—and should have—been. It addresses all of the issues that consumers had with the first device, so it definitely made reviewers quite happy when they gave it a test run.
Some reviewers, however, still feel that the draw could be somewhat stiffer, while others felt that the draw was perfectly fine. It really depends upon your own personal preferences. Overall, though, it is still better than what you would get from the first ProTank.
In terms of filling up your device’s tank, it is the same procedure that you would follow for the MT3, the EVOD, and the first ProTank. Simply unscrew the bottom before tilting the device and dripping in your preferred e-liquid. Just use caution and make sure that you do not fill it above its centre post. Then simply screw the bottom on again and begin vaping. By the way, if you were to get some of the e-liquid into the centre post by accident, you will notice a bit of gurgling, so just unscrew the battery and blow air through your drip tip until all of the e-liquid is gone from the other side. Dry off your battery connector before screwing it back on.
Overall, the performance of the ProTank 2 did not disappoint reviewers, who highly recommend this device, whether you have tried the original ProTank or not.
If you already own and are content with using the original ProTank, though, you may not have to bother investing in the ProTank 2. But if you had tried out the ProTank 1 and you were really disappointed with its build and performance, you should have an open mind and give the ProTank 2 a try, as you will more than likely be pleasantly surprised by how different it is from its predecessor and how well it operates now that upgrades have been implemented. No matter what, this device is affordable for a variety of budgets, and it is definitely now worth the cost.

The upgrades that have been made to the original's successor definitely make it a high quality product that consumers will thoroughly enjoy using.
