That Pangu That You Do
The Pangu is the latest tank from Kanger, a longtime vaping company that has been hugely successful in the clearomizer and sub-ohm tank markets. Following the enormous success of the Kanger Subtank and the recently announced Protank 4, the Pangu is aimed at both direct-lung and mouth-to-lung vapers. It uses a simple design that looks similar Aspire Cleito, but has several noticeable differences. On paper, the Kanger Pangu looks like a vaping tank that will appeal to a wide variety of vapers through simplicity.

All-New, All-Different Kanger
The coils for the Kanger Pangu, dubbed PGOCC, are very different from coils used with the company’s other sub-ohm tanks. Instead of a coil that rests at the base of the unit, PGOCC coils are inserted in a tube that runs through the entire tank. The company claims that users will be able to replace PGOCC coils without touching any vaping e-liquid.
From what I understand, juice flow is controlled by twisting the coil. This manipulates the surface area of cotton that’s exposed to the tube that houses the PGOCC coil. Airflow has a typical adjustment ring at the base of the tank.
Aesthetically, the tank has a simple design. It lacks excessive knurling, with only a few divets on the top cap to make refilling a bit easier. While the physical design is relatively understated, the base of the tank has a fairly prominent logo. The font is meant to resemble brush strokes and I find it a bit garish. Naturally, looks are subjective.
The one aspect of the Kanger Pangu that I’m highly curious about, but have no information on at this time, is the condensation reclamation system. In addition to being fun to say (say it five times, fast!), I’m down for anything that cuts e-liquid condensation and helps prevent leaking. Hopefully Kanger’s engineers whipped up something clever. Either way, I’m anxious to find out.
Will You Pangu?
The Kanger Pangu will initially launch in stainless steel, black, and white finishes. It’s available for pre-order now and should ship within a month. On paper, it looks like a more capable version of the Aspire Cleito — a sub-ohm tank that I’ve been using and enjoying for months. I’m looking forward to seeing how it compares. How about you?
