ProTank 3 Dual Coil Atomizer
E-Cigarette-USA has been a favorite e-cigarette supplier of mine for quite a while now. Up to this point, I have always found their clearomizers to be more than satisfactory and I have been eager to try the Kanger ProTank 3.
As for the overall look of the ProTank 3, it has the similar physical features to the ProTank 2, a stainless steel body, Pyrex glass tank and stainless steel drip tip. I was happy about this because I am a fan of the streamlined look of the ProTank 2 and other Kanger clearomizers and the ProTank 3 is no exception.
USING THE PROTANK 3
Remove your new ProTank 3 from its sleek packaging and remove the protective mouth piece cover. You can toss it out but I like to keep them to use when I’m traveling and such to keep my mouth piece clean when I‘m not using it.
Once you’ve done this, turn your clearomizer upside down and unscrew the base from the rest of the tank. Take one of the coil heads that come with your clearomizer and screw it into the base. Make sure to screw it in snuggly, but not too tight, you want to be able to remove the base again later without difficulty.
Now that you’ve finished installing the atomizer head coil, it’s time to fill your clearomizer with e-liquid. I’ve found that the easiest way to do this is to tilt the clearomizer on a slight angle and drip the e-liquid of your choice into the tank, filling it 2/3 full.
Make sure you don’t get any e-liquid into the center hole. Getting liquid in the center hole won’t necessarily ruin your atomizer but it will cause you to suck the excess e-liquid into your mouth. Take it from me this is something you want to avoid. Though it won’t cause you any harm, the flavor of the vape and the e-liquid itself are very different and tasting the e-liquid itself is not pleasant.
If you do accidental get e-liquid in that center hole just dab as much as possible and be aware that you may taste something unpleasant for your first inhale or two until the liquid is cleared from the tube. At this point, screw the base back onto the tank and it is ready to be used.
Just a helpful tip, any time your wick is dry when you are filling it, whether because it is a new clearomizer or because you are replacing a head coil, make sure to allow the clearomizer to sit for a few minutes to allow for the wicks in the atomizer to become completely saturated. This will give you optimum performance and ensure that you don’t burn out your atomizer head coil immediately. Once you burn out your atomizer head coil you will receive a burnt flavor and less vapor. This is irreparable and you will need to replace the coil head to receive the correct performance.
When it comes to the Kanger ProTank line, the largest change I can see is the new offering of dual coil atomizer coil heads. This is a fantastic feature that I have experienced previously using a few clearomizers from other brands and have found to be superior to the single coil atomizer coil heads. Having a dual coil atomizer in your clearomizer will give you more power when you’re vaping and you will receive more flavor and more dense clouds of vapor.
Just an FYI, I tried putting the dual coil atomizer coils heads that come with the ProTank 3 into my ProTank 2 and they do not connect. This is because the dual coil atomizer is a larger coil head and needs more space from the ProTank 3 to accommodate the added size.
Since I have previous experience using Kanger clearomizers, and know that they perform the best with higher voltage batteries, I chose to try out this new clearomizer on my eGo 1300 Twist battery. This is a variable voltage battery that has a range from 3.7v-4.8v and is one of my favorites.
Once I filled the ProTank 3 with my favorite Logic Smoke Peanut Butter E-Liquid and set my battery at 4.3v, I took a deep breath and then took my first inhale. The peanut butter flavor exploded in my mouth. This has been a favorite flavor of mine for months but I’d never tasted it so vibrant and true to favor. It tasted just like freshly ground peanut butter. Now with the vapor I was almost caught off guard by how much vapor I exhaled. Voluminous clouds of vapor.
Once of the coolest features I’ve found that all Kanger clearomizers boast is how easy the maintenance on these clearomizers really are. This is mainly because the design allows for the clearomizer to be completely disassembled. Simply unscrew all of the stainless steel components of the clearomizer to disassemble for cleaning and maintenance purposes.
Another great characteristic of the Kanger Protank 3 along the same line is its rebuildable feature. You are able to remove the dual coil atomizer coil heads and replace with a new one, simply by unscrewing the existing coil head.
Also, the drip tip is removable for cleaning and replacement. Any eGo drip tip will work so if you are like me and worry about chipping a tooth when using the stainless steel drip tip it comes with, you are welcome to replace it with a plastic one that better suites your needs. The Pyrex glass tank is also able to be replaced and is available in several bright colors such as blue and red.
I firmly recommend buying one of these wonderful clearomizers at the first chance you get. You will get such satisfaction from the flavor and vapor production the ProTank 3 offers, along with its rebuildable feature, replaceable coil heads and state of the art design. I will definitely be switching to the ProTank 3 as my daily go-to clearomizer and I highly recommend you do the same.
