First Look: Kanger SUBOX Nano

subox nano purple pink out of boxThe newest edition of Kangertech’s amazingly popular SUBOX line is now available for pre-order, the SUBOX Nano Starter Kit. The SUBOX Starter Kits pair redesigned KBOX 50 watt variable wattage box mods with color coordinated versions of the Subtank line. Packaged as a unit, Kangertech has dubbed them the SUBOX Starter Kit.

The first model in this line was the SUBOX Mini Starter Kit, available in white or black. Those models continue to be so popular that as of this writing Kanger’s ecommerce website is still sold out.

The newest entry to the lineup is the SUBOX Nano Starter Kit, which will be available around the end of September 2015. The Nano version comes in three colors, black, purple and pink. Kanger is already experiencing shortages on this version, so they were able to ship only the pink and purple editions for a Seven Report review.

The Nano maintains most of the features of the Mini, but there are a few differences. The KBOX Nano is about as tall as the KBOX Mini, but it’s slimmer. It’s powered by a single 18650 battery (not included), which can be charged while in the mod with the included USB micro cable. And the KBOX Nano has pass through capability, meaning you can vape while it’s charging. There’s also a fairly thorough user’s manual.

It’s variable wattage with a range of 7 – 50 watts, though if you attach a coil with a resistance higher than 1.6 ohm the KBOX will not be able to reach that 50 watt limit. The KBOX Nano is 510 threaded with a fixed connector.

The OLED display on the Nano is the same as that on the KBOX Mini, showing battery level, voltage, resistance of the attached coil and wattage. The read out is sharp and bright and will also display warnings when necessary.

The color coordinated Subtank Nano comes with two organic cotton coils (OCC), one rated at 0.5 ohm and the other at 1.5 ohm. There’s also an extra Pyrex tank. The adjustable airflow on this edition of the Subtank Nano has been upgraded from that on earlier versions of the Nano, Kanger has added a smaller air flow port for an even tighter draw, brining the total of possible adjustments to four.

Because of its small 18.5 mm diameter the Subtank Nano is only member of the Subtank family that doesn’t come with a Mini RBA deck, it’s just too little to accommodate one. The color on the Subtank Nano is not the aqueous ceramic coating found on the Subtank Mini models, since there is no color on the interior of the Nano, your ejuice will not come into contact with any of the colored portions of the tank. Kanger includes a card which details suggested wattage settings for each OCC based on the VG ratio in your ejuice.

The threading on this kit seems to be a little smoother than on the SUBOX Mini, that may be due to the different technique used to color the Subtank Nano. The coils are Kanger’s latest vertical design with larger ejuice ports than on earlier editions of the OCC.

I’ll continue to use it for about a week and then come back with a full, in-depth review. If you follow Seven Report on Twitter or Facebook you’ll find out that way when the review is live.

The SUBOX Nano Starter Kit is available for pre-order on Kangertech’s website for $73.90 and it should be available for shipping around September 30. Kanger provided the pink and purple editions of the SUBOX Nano Starter Kit for Seven Report to review.
