The Aerotank Mega from Kangertech is a monster clearomizer. And we mean that in the best possible way. The interchangeable tanks (one glass, the other stainless steel) will each hold up to 3.8 ml of ejuice. And Kanger has outfitted the Aerotank Mega with its latest DBC (dual bottom coil) design and a redesigned airflow control valve. The Kanger Aerotank Mega (and the rest of the Aerotank line, but more on that in a bit) are among the best clearomizers on the market, for the moment at least, new products with new innovations seem to come out every couple of weeks.
The closest thing to the Aerotank, and the clearomizer it’s most often compared to, is the Aspire Nautilus. The Nautilus has more ejuice capacity (5 ml), and is usually a little less expensive (depending on where you shop). The biggest difference between the two seems to be (we have not yet tried the Nautilus) their adjustable airflow systems. The Nautilus has four preset adjustment settings while the Aerotank offers variable adjustment. It was that difference, and the fact that most of the employees at our regular vape shop use the Aerotank Mega as their go-to clearomizer, that most informed our decision to purchase the Aerotank Mega.
Kanger ships the Aerotank Mega with two DBC 2.0 ohm coils; two tanks, each with a 3.8 ml capacity, one glass and the other stainless steel; and stainless steel beauty ring and replaceable 510 drip tip. The Aerotank Mega is glue free, so it comes apart easily for cleaning and all the parts are replaceable. Its 510 threading means the Aerotank Mega will fit most mods. The tank fills from the bottom. You adjust the airflow by rotating the base of the unit from left to right to increase airflow. There are eight lines, or marks, under the little hole in the base to help guide you in making adjustments. From left to right the marks increase in height to indicate the increasing airflow.

Here’s our video review of the Aerotank Mega
Performance: This is where the Kanger Aerotank Mega really shines. The dual bottom coils produce an amazing amount of vapor. And the flavor of that vapor is greatly enhanced. We’ve vaped quite a few varieties of ejuice in this beast and the taste on most of them is fuller and richer than what we’ve gotten out of our other clearomizers. Add to that the ability to personalize the vaping experience through the variable adjustable airflow, and we’ve found the Aerotank Mega really outperforms anything else we’ve tried.
Features: I don’t know how Kanger could have added many more features to the Aerotank Mega. Two tanks are included, one glass and one stainless steel, it has variable airflow adjustment, a replaceable drip tip and beauty ring all in the package. And with no glue, you can take the whole thing apart easily for cleaning or replacing individual components.
Quality: The Aerotank Mega is solidly built. The glass on the Pyrex tank is pretty thick, so it should stand up to the occasional knock-over. The food grade stainless steel components add to the sturdy feel of this unit. Airflow adjustment is smooth. Kanger claims that average lifespan of its new coils is between 10 to 20 days. We’ve gotten a couple of weeks out of a few coils, but never quite reached 20 days. Still, that’s a fairly impressive amount of vaping off of any coil.
There a couple of little quality issues we’ve found with the Aerotank Mega. First, it’s little noisy or breathy. When you inhale, the sound of the air flowing through the hole in the base of the tank is noticeably audible. Secondly, filling the tank can be a little tricky. It’s a bottom fill model, and the base of the tank has four small holes or ports. If you don’t have the tip of your ejuice bottle directly over one of those holes, you run the risk of putting the ejuice in faster than the ports can funnel it into the tank. Lastly, the stainless steel base of the tank, below those four ports, holds a fair amount of ejuice, but it’s hidden from view. So when the tank appears to be empty there’s still a good deal of ejuice in there, making it difficult to judge when to refill, unless you turn everything upside down to see how much is actually in there.
Looks: This is one good-looking clearomizer. The stainless steel finish is sleek, and with the steel tank attached it looks downright futuristic. With the glass tank attached the inner stainless tube becomes visible, giving the Aerotank Mega a different, yet still stylish look and makes it easier to tell how much ejuice is left in the tank. And the included beauty ring keeps it looking good no matter what mod you use it on. It’s a pretty big unit, and would probably look out of place on a pen-style battery. But slap it on a box mod and you’ve suddenly upgraded the look of your vape.
Price/Value: We paid $40.00 for our Kangertech Aerotank Mega at Vapes Gone Wild in Newnan, Ga. That may seem a little pricey, especially to beginning vapers. But the quality of the unit along with the ability to personalize your vape with its adjustable airflow and its vapor production make it a real bargain. And it does come with two tanks, one glass and one stainless steel. Yes, until we tried the Aerotank Mega we were pretty satisfied with our EVOD 2 and Innokin iClear 16B clearomizers. But the Aerotank Mega took our vaping experience to an amazing level of pure enjoyment. So, yes, it was well worth the price.
The Kangertech Aerotank Mega is can’t miss. We recommend it to any serious vaper. And when you add its adjustable airflow to a mod with variable wattage and/or variable voltage, you can really personalize your vaping experience. Its 3.8 ml capacity will provide a full day (or days, depending on how heavily you vape) of quality vaping. If there’s any downside to that 3.8 ml capacity it’s that you may want to change ejuice flavors before you empty the tank.
Kanger does offer several other models in the Aerotank line. There’s the Aerotank V2 (version two which introduced the new airflow system) with a 2.5 ml capacity, the Aerotank Mini with a 1.3 ml capacity, the Aerotank Giant with a 4.5 ml capacity, and the newest addition to the line, the Aerotank Turbo with a 6.0 ml capacity, an even newer airflow valve and boasting a quad-coil set up by employing two DBC coils. We may have found the next entry on our wishlist with the Turbo.
We tested the Kangertech Aerotank Mega on the Innokin iTaste MVP 2 with a variety of ejuices.
