eGo Threading Makes The World Go ‘Round

It’s no surprise that the Kanger Evod 2 is eGo threaded, given that it takes on very similar characteristics to the original Evod. Kanger wants the Evod to maintain popularity. Making the Evod 2 eGo threaded allows for newbie vapers to choose a great clearomizer from the get go! Most vapers start with the smaller disposables and ween into the vaporizer starter kits that generally come with eGo threaded clearomizers.

If you liked the original Kanger Evod but don’t usually use eGo threaded clearos; have no worries. The 510 ego threaded connector takes care of anyones threading issues. Now you can vape off the Evod 2 whether you have a 510 connection or not!

Got Them Bottom Dual Coils

The Evod 2 features the popular BDC, or bottom dual coil setup with the 2.0 ohms. This is a relatively new coil setup that has completely changed the way clearomizers are thought of! The dual bottom coil setup on theEvod 2 provides you with a warmer vapor with a cleaner flavor; also doubling the amount of vapor production from the single coil design.

The replacement coils from the original Kanger Evod are NOT compatible with the new Kanger Evod 2 coil heads. In fact, the Kanger Evod 2 has the SAME replacement coils as the Kanger Aerotank and the Protank 3! So, if you have bought any extra coil heads for those two clearomizers, you won’t have to worry too much about buying the extra replacement packs; but if you’re running low you can find the 5-packs here.

new kanger coil heads
Kanger has just released brand new replacement coils that enclose the wicks in a metal casing. The Evod 2 is one of the compatible clearomizers for the new coil heads. The new coil heads give the advantage of absorbing a controlled amount of e liquid to reduce leaking, flooding and dry hits. They only come in 2.0 resistance (for now). We found a great in-depth article about the new coil heads here

If this is your first time looking into the Evod 2 clearomizer, we found a brand new Kanger Evod 2 Starter Kit from those guys over at MFS. The starter kit comes with 2 Evod 2 clearomizers and a few other notable items in the kit at a decent price!  If you are having trouble replacing your atomizer coil heads, than simply follow the steps below to ensure you are safely replacing the atomizer head properly:

  1. Untwist the clearomizer from the battery
  2. Detach the base from the clearomizer
  3.  Unscrew the atomizer head (the long thin part that is attached to the base) and throw it away
  4. Securely screw on the new coil head to the base
  5. Screw the base back onto the body of the clearomizer
  6. Screw the entire clearomizer back onto the battery
  7. Enjoy vaping!

Some Battery Advice

The Evod 2 clearomizer is made to work well with MOST eGo, eGo T & eGo C batteries, including the Evod Battery! However if you want to get the absolute BEST production out of your battery for your Evod it is recommended that you choose a variable voltage battery and not a constant voltage battery. Some of the good variable voltage batteries are the Joyetech eGo-C Twist, the Evod VV Twist and the Innokin iTaste VV.

What About The Tank Specs?

The Evod 2 clearo tank holds 1.6 ml of e liquid safely. It is personal preference if you choose to fill your tank more than the designated 1.6; however you run the risk of overflowing, leaking and gurgling. The tanks come in a variety of different colors as well:

  • Black
  • Stainless
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Pink
  • Purple

The downside of the Evod 2 clearomizer is the plastic tank. The tank is NOT a pyrex tank and therefore is NOT under any warranty and WILL crack if you put harsh e juice in the tank (such as spearmint and cinnamon red hot). To make sure you properly fill your Evod follow these simple steps:

  1. Detach your clearomizer from the battery
  2. Unscrew the base of the clearomizer
  3. Fill the sides of the tank (so that your e juice is filling along the inside walls of the clearomizer)
  4. Screw the base back on.
  5. Screw the clearomizer back onto the battery
  6. Vape away!

Drip Tips

The default drip tip for the Evod 2 clearomizer is just a plain metal drip tip. Kanger saw that this was a huge flaw from the first Evod and now made the drip tip removable and compatible with MOST 510 drip tips on the market! Having removable drip tips give you a couple advantages. Being able to change your drip tip allows you take the customization of your clearomizer to the next level! There are SO many drip tips available.

We found a really cool site with TONS of different drip tips available. Another benefit besides the looks, is some vapers tend to not like the “feel” of the metal drip tips when they vape. Changing out the standard drip tip for a plastic replacement gives vapers the chance to try cool new drip tips!

Final Thoughts

So, the original Evod stood the test of time with the vaping community. How will the Evod 2 fair with you? With an upgraded bottom dual coil system and the removable drip tip; the benefits of getting the new Evod 2 looks to outweigh staying with the old Evod. The coils last longer and provide better flavor and more vapor! The only downfall we could think of is that the replacement coils for the Evod 2 cost more than the original Evod coils.

The benefit is if you already own the Aerotank and Protank 3; than you more likely than not already have replaceable coils for your new Evod 2! The clearomizer is priced under $10.00 and is a great bargain for any new vapers wanting to see what vaping is all about.

    I’m enjoying my evod 2 a lot and have had no problems at all, but I have recently become concerned about these battery explosions/fires that I have been hearing on the news. I’m trying to find out what kind of battery is used in the evod 2. I don’t see anything on this from the website. I know the problem is with the lithium ion battery.

    • Brent says:

      I’ve been using the evod twist, (adjustable voltage output) for 2 tears now and never a problem. I leave it to recharge overnight, and other than getting a little warm at the base when starting, no problems. If you don’t “cheap” out when buying, you should be fine. Or ask the guy behind the counter, (if your lucky enough to have one) and ask him what the best and most dependable is.

  2. Zac says:

    Is the tip of the mouth piece we use and smoke out of is it lose or does it swivel around like normal when i use mine and i can turn mine around it does not come offor loosen was just wondering if it just does that normaly ?

    • Brent says:

      Depending on the model, most just push into place with a gasket built into the tip to prevent leakage. So being able to turn it is OK at the top, if the threaded bottom is stripped, you need a new clearomizer.

  3. sharon says:

    why the metal tips. won’t they stick to the lips when out in the cold. and they r heavier than the this safe,i rather the clear tips.really are these safe.

  4. Graeden says:

    Bought two of the Evod 2’s and liked them quite well at first. Now a month later, they both have “hard spots” when threading the bottoms onto the tanks after filling. And no I did not cross thread them! Also the new coils with the internal wicks do not vape as well as the older style did. I took one apart and they have very small wicks running through the coils. Also, unlike the older style wicks, they do not reassemble. Kanger inserted a metal band around the inner lip that prevents putting the tube back in. Thankfully I kept my older style so I can make my own coil/wick assemblies instead of buying more of the new style. One other thing I dislike about this tank is it is difficult to see how much juice you have in them while filling. I use a long needle like tip on my juice bottles to aid in NOT overfilling them. Mine are also seeping juice out through the coil and onto the top of my iTaste VV battery. Overall a decent clearomizer but am upgrading asap. 2 out of 5 stars IMO.

    • Bernie Lewis says:

      Sounds like you cross threaded them. Just because you say you didn’t do something, doesn’t mean that you didn’t do it. If your car crashes into a pole and you’re the one driving, do you also say that it wasn’t you who crashed it?

    • Brent says:

      Try a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol on all of the threaded pieces, it worked for me. The thinnest coating of e-juice drys on the threads, making it feel as though you might be cross-threading. P.S., I hate the new coils and had access to the older ones. Alas, they are now gone, and if they don’t improve the new ones, it may be time to quit, at least for me.
