Kanger K200 box mod
This week I am taking a look at the Kanger K200 box mod, there have been a lot of new devices recently from Kanger and this is their dual 18650 temperature controlled offering.
The Kanger K200 box mod arrives in a neat and standard box
Inside there are no accessories at all, but there is a user guide , warranty card and some mystery black stickers.
Other than that paperwork, the box contains just the Kanger K200 box mod inside.
For those familiar with other current Kanger devices, such as the NeBox, KBox, K120 and SuBox, the Kanger K200 box mod has a familiar look and feel to it.
The 510 is stainless steel threaded and has a spring loaded and self adjusting brass positive pin.
The top is unadorned other than the 510 connector and a KBOX 200 indentation.
The side is fairly plain…
Just the KangerTech name stencilled (in red on the black version and in black on the white and red versions) on the side of the battery cover.
The back has the familiar K logo cut into it for ventilation,
The other side has a big array of ventilation hole arranged in a big K, overall a lot of battery ventilation.
The base has ventilation for the electronics , a couple of screws holding the device together and the usual CE/recycling marks and manufacturer info.
The front panel has the usual power button, display screen, up and down buttons and USB charging port. There is no USB cable supplied in the box.
The battery cover just pulls off. It is a simple cover held in place by friction and there are no magnets etc..
It fits well and if it gets loose then a simple little pinch tightens it back up nicely.
Under the battery cover we have the battery tray, which is clearly marked with positive and negative indicators for the battery orientations.
The top end of device has spring loaded battery connectors that self adjust to battery size…
The bottom end of the device has fixed battery connectors.
The battery tray rear has some holes in it to allow the batteries to vent via the big array (in a K) of holes on the cover.
The display and menu system is the same we have seen in other recent box mods from Kanger that include temperature control.
From the menu you can do a lot of things, you can :-
Switch between wattage or temperature control,
Alter the temperature control setting from 100-315 Celsius (200-600 Fahrenheit),
Alter the wattage setting from 7-200 watts,
Reverse the LED display,
Calibrate a new coil (for temperature control),
Select your coil wire type (Ni,Ti,NiCr or SS).
As I said above the device can use nickel, titanium, nichrome and stainless steel as well as kanthal for non-temperature.
Wattages from 7-200watts
Temperature from 100-315 C (200-600F)
Allows coils from 0.05ohms (Ni,Ti,SS) or 0.1ohms (NiCr)
The Kanger K200 box mod measures 84 x 56 x 22mm and weighs in at 127grams (without batteries).
So, opinions …
Much as we have seen in all the recent Kanger box mods in the last few months, the Kanger K200 box mod works very well.
It follows the current design aesthetics (such as the Subox, Kbox and Nebox) which I personally quite like.
Like the other current Kanger box mods, it is easy to use, the menus are clearly described in the user guide and once you know them simple to navigate.
Once the system is setup, you just fire and vape.
I don’t personally use dual battery setups due to the size of the devices, the Kanger K200 is not all that big and if I wanted extra battery life or more power output I would not object to carrying it at all.
The construction is competent and durable for the price range, the only slight concern would be the battery cover coming loose (and that can be solved by giving it a simple pinch to tighten it up again).
Overall, good device that has good features, good construction, good price and is compact for a dual battery device.
The device retails for $65 (thats about £45 or €60).
