Kangertech sent their new KBOX 200 mod for a Seven Report review. The KBOX 200 is a temperature control and variable wattage box mod with a wattage range of 7 – 200 watts. In temperature control mode it has a range of 100°C – 300°C and 200°F – 600°F.
The most impressive feature of the KBOX 200 is its ability to operate in temperature control mode almost regardless of the material used in the coil. The KBOX allows you to choose from four different types of coil in temperature control mode; Ni 200, Titanium, stainless steel or Nichrome.
The KBOX 200 is powered by two 18650 batteries,which are not included. You can charge the batteries while they’re in the mod via the micro USB port on the side of the KBOX 200, though Kangertech does not include a charging cable. That may be an attempt to keep the price relatively low, Kanger lists the MSRP for the KBOX 200 at $64.90.
Kanger has given the KBOX 200 a bright, easy to read LCD display. You can change the back light of the display from black to white and flip its orientation by 180°. The KBOX 200 is also lockable, meaning that you can lock the power/temperature increase and decrease buttons to prevent accidental changes.
I put a couple of fully charged 18650 batteries into the Kangertech KBOX 200, attached a SMOK TFV4 tank with a Nicrhome coil and set the device to temperature control and tried a first vape. Then I set the KBOX 200 to variable wattage mode. It performed well in these preliminary tests, changing easily from temperature control to variable wattage and back again.
To the best of my knowledge, the KBOX 200 is the first or one of the first Kangertech products with upgradeable software. The KBOX 200 is available in black, red and white.
For a 200 watt mod the KBOX 200 is relatively small, much shorter and thinner than the Asmodus Snow Wolf 200 and even the Eleaf iStick 100 watt mod. It feels solid in my hand and fits my palm comfortably.
I’ll be using the Kangertech KBOX 200 extensively for the next week or so and then come back with a full, in-depth review. If you follow Seven Report on Twitter or Facebook you’ll learn that way when that review has been posted.
