Kangertech Ceramic Coils Intro
Today I am taking a look at the latest coils for the Subtank series from Kangertech, this time with new ceramic wicking technology. A lot of ceramic coil tanks have hit the market lately and Kanger didn’t want to miss the party. And with the release of the GCeramic coils from Atom Vapes, Kanger have now released their very own ceramic coil head. Let’s take a look at how they perform.
The coils come in a neat presentation box with each coil in its own foil pack, similar to other coils and almost like a pack of pills, which has always puzzled me but hey it is what it is. A nice presentation and with no damage I can’t complain. Simple but effective.
Offering a new form of wicking utilising porous ceramic as a wicking material rather than cotton these coils come as a direct competitor to the GCeramic coils manufactured by Atom Vapes.
Vaping the Kangertech Ceramic Coils
These coils have a very smooth draw to them, a very pleasurable vape experience. Whilst they are most certainly not designed for cloud chasing, the vapour production is okay. Nothing special but it’s okay, nice and dense just not huge amounts.
As for flavour, that is where these coils shine. They really bring out the flavour in your e-liquids. Using a Subtank Mini, (a tank known to be a beast for flavour) these coils complemented the set up fantastically! In comparison to the coils from Atom Vapes they didn’t quite match up though.
If the Atom Vapes coils were a 10/10 for flavour, I’d put these at an 8-8.5/10. Not far behind but just about noticeable. That isn’t to say the flavour is bad, far from it. These coils are far superior to the standard Kanger coils in terms of flavour; they just don’t quite match up to the GCeramic coils.
As for wattage; whilst these coils can exceed their wattage rating, it is rather hot. I really liked vaping these coils at around 50w a nice warm vape with plenty of flavour and ok vapour production.
If you prefer to vape at higher wattages, these would be your best bet out of the Kanger coils and the Atom Vapes coils as the GCeramic coils are 0.9Ω and don’t vape as well at higher wattages.
- As I’ve stated, the flavour I get from these coils is fantastic! Much better than the stock Kanger coils and better than almost any other coil on the market right now.
- I like how these are standard 0.5Ω coils, I found the AtomVapes coils to be a little too restrictive being 0.9Ω so having these as more of a standard sub ohm resistance worked really well for me.
- I have found these coils to leak a little more often than some other standard coils; especially if you get the priming wrong. Instead I prefer to fill up the tank and let it sit instead of priming the coil. I’d like to see the leaking addressed.
Ramp up time
- These coils do have a significantly longer ramp up time than other standard coils, the first couple of hits don’t really perform but once the ceramic heats up the performance starts to really shine!
These coils are a fantastic addition to the subtank range. Rivalling the AtomVapes GCeramic coils in terms of flavour and having beaten them in cloud production, these coils have impressed me!
Unfortunately the leaking and ramp up time leave me thinking it is better to stick with cotton wicked coils but these were definitely a strong first attempt from Kangertech.
A great coil for the subtank and slightly cheaper than the AtomVapes coils if you have a Kanger Subtank and want to give ceramic a go, these would be my recommendation.
