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

Kanger Pangu PGOCC

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? Are you interested in Kanger’s latest tank? Please leave a comment and let me know.

    not for me as there is clearly no rba for this one

    I’ve have been a Kanger fanatic for quite awhile. Although in earlier models a leaking issue was one of the conerns and long with how loud they could be the vents fully open. But they have nip it in the butt with their topbox tank. Which is one of my personal favorites. So I’m really curious to see what their latest invention has to offer with the condensation reclamation and the PGOCC coil system. My love for previous tanks was that the coils were mainly universal with the new tanks and flavor and vape production consistent, but Kanger hasn’t failed me so far, and I have a positive vibe about this one.

  • Cosmia

    I like the painterly font, it’s what first attracted me.

    • As my esteemed colleague Jim McDonald is fond of pointing out, these things are subjective.

      • Jim McDonald

        Haha!

  • frizzybob

    I’m curious. If the price point is fair id try this out. Since it resembles the cleito.

    • While it does resemble a Cleito, it’s more complex than that sub-ohm tank. One of my favorite things about the Cleito is its simplicity.

  • Cappa Quattro

    I bought it on Kangertech website when it was in pre-order, really attracted by the new features, and being already an owner of a Cleito (Fantastic flavour and clouds but it does leak and spit back), I thought it was a good alternative to the Aspire tank.
    Now after awhile using it, I would say that I’m a bit disappointed by 2 facts:
    1) The Air flow is not great
    2) The coils duration is ridiculous.
    For what concerns the point 2, let me say that I’ve always used the 2 coils that come with the tank (0.5 ohm SUS316L and 1.5 ohm NiCr) in Wattage mode, on my evic mini, at a really low watts because I use fruity e-liquids and I don’t like the hot temperature.
    With that setup the coils have lasted 4 days each before starting getting a burned flavour.
    Please take into account I’m not an heavy vaper, and the Cleito coils, last me at least 12 days
    Now I don’t know if it’s just a matter of the fact they were the first produced and sold, or if it’s the expected lasting. In any case I wrote to kangertech to get their point of view.
    A part from the 2 highlighted points, I think it’s a good little tank but I still prefer the flavour I’m getting from the Cleito

    • Thanks for your findings! I’m surprised you’re getting leaking on the Cleito. I have two in my rotation and have never had an issue with leaking or spitback.

    • Beth Watkins

      I bought this (recommended by the store co-owner) about 2 weeks ago. I also bought a 5 pack of coils because every mod I have seems to burn coils up in 2 days- max. I’ve used the 2 coils that came with the Pangu plus 3 out of the box. I can’t figure out how to regulate air flow either. Maybe it’s operator error. Every time I try to change the coil with juice in it (which you are supposed to be able to do by adjusting the coil to the closed position) I get juice all over me. So I now pour the juice out before trying to change the coil. I’m a mouth to lung and thought that was the problem with coils burning up so quick. I have now bought 5 mods (and tanks) and they all burn up within a couple days. The mod I am using this on is “Eleaf’s iPower.” I’m not impressed. I’m tired of buying coils. I bought 2 different “Moto Plus mods'” because I loved the taste and hit I get from it. Plus I’m partial to a “pen-type” mod. But the coils are specific to the mod and are now hard to find. It’s been a very frustrating ride for me. I stopped smoking 2 years ago, however have recently started hitting a cigarette about once a day. After being a 30-yr smoker this is really disheartening. I just wish I could find someone to help me buy something that would fit my needs without trying to SELL me something… Again, not impressed with Kangertech’s new Pangu… but it may work well for someone more knowledgeable with tanks, coils, and mods… Thanks!

    This is my first day with the Pangu tank, and I have few major problems with it.

    1. It is sometimes difficult to remove the top in order to fill the tank. It is not a screw on top like the Cleito (which I love btw), but just a rubber ring that snugs into the glass of the tank. I was struggling to get the top off, and since the bottom of the glass is also just snugged up with rubber and doesn’t screw on, I pulled the bottom off instead and juice leaked all over the place. This is a major design flaw.

    2. The air flow is not adjustable at all. Poor design choice.

    3. The BIGGEST issue with this tank is the heat! Only vaping at 35 watts, after 10 or so Vapes this thing gets HOT! I mean, so hot that you feel like it’s burning your lips and you have to set it down for 10 minutes to cool off. For this reason alone, I would completely pass on this tank regardless of the price.

    • Thanks for your insights on the Pangu. I really appreciate it.

  • Krisna Yana

    Can we rebuild the PGOCC Coil? Just like occ or aspire atlantis coil?
    Since it easily worn out and not last as long as cleito coil

    • The coil looks difficult to rebuild. I imagine it’s possible, but not especially user-friendly.

    I think I commented in the wrong place below…? So I copied it to here…

Thasks!
    I’d also like to know what the condensation reclamation is about????

    • What other tanks have you tried? For simplicity, the Aspire Cleito has a very straightforward design. It’s easy to set up, use, and maintain.

      • Beth Watkins

        Most of them came with the mod. So if they have their own tank, I don’t know what it is. Except for the “mini super tank??” I bought. I think it fits most mods. I have no clue in how to change the coil though. And the store i go to said they are no longer allowed to change it for me. (New laws) The only word I see on it is “Tobaco.” I seen that there were a lot of people who like that tank… (the Cleito). Do you have a link or know where to get them…? Then I can read about it. I can also Google it… I hope it’s good for mouth to lung… and Thanks!

  • letskeepthisshort

    can i use this on tank on a subvod or is the subvod not powerful enough

    • It depends on how you like to vape. The 0.5-ohm coil might work for you. The 1.5-ohm coil will probably be unsatisfying. What wattage do you normally use?

      • letskeepthisshort

        i believe the subvod kit is set to 30 watt

    I’ve been using a Pangu now for close to two months and I love it! Now I may not have much experience with many various other tanks, but going from the standard tank and coils used by my eVic VTC Mini to this is a change I will never regret. Yes, removing of the top can be painful and once or twice in the beginning I got juice over myself as well, I got used to it and now remove it like a pro. So what if I cannot adjust air flow, it pulls through more than enough air (quite a lot actually in my opinion). I vape at 27 degrees, so it gets a bit warm but then you have to puff it a lot. I’m a 25 a day ex-smoker and even with cigarettes, if you puff them too frequently, like one hit after another, then you will also get burned (and a soggy filter). But the one thing I love the most about it, is the taste I get from my liquids. I have tried friends RBA’s and RBTA’s and the flavour does not compare. A friend of mine is making his own liquids and he is going to use these tanks for his testers due to the flavour they give out. Oh, and the coils, mine last an average of 2 weeks if not more.
