Kanger Aerotank Turbo Review
The Kanger Aerotank Turbo is the one of the biggest tanks Kanger has released to date. It matches similarly to the likes of the Aerotank Mega and joins a stainless steel body with a durable glass inner tank.
The Aerotank Turbo distinguishes itself with its two dual-coil vapor production units designed to give maximum flavor and cloud cover with every draw. The guys at Kanger are dubbing it “Quad Coil”. Let’s see how good it is.
Kanger Aerotank Turbo Specs
- Dimensions: 2 3/8” (L), 1 3/16” (D)
- Capacity: 6.0mL
- 510 Threading
- Improved Adjustable Airflow Control
- Uses Two Dual-Coil Atomizers
- Replaceable Atomizer Heads
- Adjustable Contact
- Pyrex Glass Tank
What’s New? Kanger Aerotank Turbo
The all-new Aerotank Turbo brings quad-coil vaping technology to the general vaping public for the first time by employing a pair of adjustable dual coil atomizers, ensuring that every drop of its advertised 6.0mL capacity delivers the most possible flavor.
Another new feature for the Kangertech Aerotank Turbo is the adjustable airflow valve, allowing users to play with the intake level by use of a control ring at the center of the tank.
The tank also features an adjustable battery connection to allow use with a wider range of equipment. Essentially, this new model is a performance-tuned version of the established Kanger tanks.
Kanger Aerotank Turbo Threading
The Kanger Aerotank Turbo is fitted with standard 510 threading, making it compatible with a wide variety of equipment. Its 1 3/16” diameter and power-intensive operation means those interested in this tank would be best served with a more powerful mod.
We suggest either a box mod, mech mod or other large-form mod to get the best out of their vaping experience with this tank. Leave your eGo threaded batteries behind and check out our Exclusive Vape Mod Guide.
A pair of replaceable dual-coil atomizers make this tank the first widely available quad-coil device. Kanger recommends using two coils of the same resistance level with this tank, so be careful when purchasing replacement coils.
The powerful quad coil design turns the volume way up on juices, and so it can help you discover the finer nuances of your most consistently vaped e-liquids, but can also amplify the flaws in poor quality juices.
Since quad-coils are relatively new and likely to become much more commonplace, now is a good time to make sure your mod and the batteries it uses are capable of handling the standard 1.8 ohm dual coils used by the Kanger Aerotech Turbo as well as any other configuration you want to experiment with.
The adjustable airflow feature of the Kanger Aerotank is one of our favorites, and we can’t wait to see more manufacturers realize this level of user control is what the vaping community has come to expect from higher-end devices.
About the Tank Size
Build quality on the Kanger Aerotank Turbo is outstanding, with the stainless steel body and pyrex glass tank of the unit giving the look and feel of high caliber equipment.
The control ring for the adjustable airflow feels sturdy and slides into place with a tactile click.
Less universally ideal aspects of the Aerotank Turbo include its size and bulk, but it’s not meant to be a small tank with its 6 ml capacity and we think that anyone who goes out of their way for it has decided that it’s worth the trade-off.
The vapor density delivered by the dual Kanger Aerotank Turbo coils can also prove too much for some users, but that’s another intentional side effect of its design and there are many other options on the market for users who prefer to inhale significantly more air.
Use More Juice: Avoid Leaks
One of the most common issues with new users of advanced tanks like the Aerotank Turbo is leakage, usually due more to newbies like pouring the juice down the hole that leads to the battery than bad design.
You can keep more juice in your tank and less in your pocket by making sure the base is firmly secured after refilling, by keeping the tank at least 1/3 filled to better maintain the seal, as well as replacing atomizers every two weeks or so to keep them in good repair.
When your tank begins to leak, just remove it from the mod, wrap a piece of tissue paper around the battery end of the tank, and blow into it as hard as you can.
There might not be huge similarities between the Aerotank Turbo and the Subtank, besides that they both can hold 6 ml of your all day vape.
How about sub-ohming capabilities? The Kanger Subtank offers it. How about new and improved Organic Cotton Coils? Subtank has it.
Another similar clearomizer on the market that will open your eyes to the power of clearos is the brand new Aspire Atlantis.
While it only hold 2.0 ml of e juice, the Atlantis comes with a Bottom Vertical Coil Design and has sub-ohming capabilities as well, allowing you to chase the clouds.
Firing up those four Kanger Aerotank Turbo coils takes plenty of juice, so that means you’ll need a fairly powerful mod to get the most out of it. What does that mean?
That means you’ll need to be in the market to look for a more powerful vaping mod than your little eGo stick you’ve been used to. Here’s a run down of the best compatible mods for 2015:
Released late last year, the VaporFi Vox 50 mod didn’t get much attention or hype on social media. But this device delivers.
It fits in the palm of your hand and comes with some serious power with both variable voltage and wattage capabilities.
Another great mod compatible with the Aerotank Turbo would be the iTaste SVD 2.0. This is a newer release among Innokins’ ever popular iTaste line.
Made out of stainless steel and having a popular 510 threading, look for this mod to power your mid to high end devices.
By all accounts, the Kanger Aerotank Turbo is a more than a worthy addition to the Kanger line. The tank delivers extremely high vapor density when used with a quality mod, and flavors activated by the tank are clear, pronounced, and unmistakable.
Overall, experienced vapers looking for a tank that makes their investment in a powerful mod more rewarding would do well to look to the Kanger Aerotank Turbo. This massive monster delivers all the capacity, vapor quality, flavor and throat hit that most anyone could want, and does it like no other tank on the market with its supercharged four coil design.
