  2. Thanks for the close up look so far. My first question was "will I be able to rebuild these?" LOL The Aspire turned out to be a dissapointment, especially following PBusa...'AHEM' uhm... the "hype". I am glad to see Kanger taking on the dual coil concept.

  3. Is one supposed be better than the other or last longer?

      Just more vapor production for the most part. Your splitting the load between two coils rather than making one coil operate at a higher voltage.

  4. I just bought the ProTank 2 and am quite happy with it. I've only been vaping for 2 months and plan on learning to rebuild the coils. Thanks for the awesome info.

  5. We'll thanks for the in-depth look, I love my Knager Oritanks, was looking forward to the uni-tank and was disappointed when I found out itwas released in plastic not pyrex, but got over quickly when I heard of the dual coil Protank 3 coming out, But after reading I am a little disappointed here to. I still use a c-twist battery. So I May hold off on purchasing one :( and wait til Kanger comes out with the a better version which I am sure they will :). Or possibly I may get lucky and win one and if I like go from there. But if not I am still happy with my Protank2 :). Still love the idea of a dual coil and filling from the top so please don't keep us waiting to long.

  6. Meh... IMHO Kanger lost this battle to Aspire BDC. The new protank head is just a spin on the old design potentially having more issues than the one coil variant. The issues getting worst will be gurgling and juice contamination which are almost innexistent in BDC design bus to the barrier between the coil and juice

      I am going to create a product tile and people can add themselves to the waitlist.

  8. Excellent post Ed! Couple of questions: 1) What exactly do you mean by "misting"? 2) Any word on using the PT3 on an MVP v2, is that powerful enough? 3) Silicon grommet, do you think that might be what helps strengthen flavor output? I would think heating rubber would alter my juice while silicon wouldn't effect it? I realize DC would change flavor and vapor too. I can't wait to receive my order and form my own opinion!! Thanks again for all you do.

  9. Thanks for your insight and all the "good" information, Edward. I ordered one yesterday. I was kinda liking the Aspire, but I think I need a second job to pay for all the heads I'm going through on that gurgling thing lately. Kanger does a great job engineering these creations, and I know they listen to expert input from bottom coil gurus like you, so I feel pretty confident in my purchase. You are considered the "King of all things Kanger", I'm sure, by many bottom coil vapers. Please keep up the good work you and the gang at Sun-vapers do.

  11. Ordered mine from SV Saturday when it was released. It made Sandston VA from CA by 1AM this morning. Only missed the cut off for being delivered today by an hour. Amazing delivery time, every time from SV. Only bought one- just want to try it, see what's up and figure out how they coiled it. Suprised they went with parallel coils and am curious how they avoided the wires crossing/touching between the two coils.

    1. HAHAHAA! Spoke to soon! We have delivery! Repeat we have delivery! Can't wait to get home and try this out. Edward- I can not fathom how you get things out here so fast!

      There is a flavor wick sandwiched between the two coils.

      1. Edward you said you were going to make a video but I can't find it, where do I look for that? I am very interested in hearing about people rebuilding the protank 3 coil, do you know of anyone that has tried? Mike

  13. Well, I am really enjoying my SVKP3 (Sun Vapers Kanger Protank 3). I watched a lot of reviews yesterday before I got home. Some saying it was awesome, some hating it, along with occassional misinformation. One of the worst things I saw was a reviewer comparing vaper output by putting a P2 and P3 side by side on Kanger Evod VVs set at 4.5 volts each. His assertion being that since both are 2 ohm coils they both require the same power. They don't obviously- since the power is being split between two coils on the P3, it needs more power to make fair "head to head" against a P2. Anyway, I have been getting into cotton. So before even trying it as is, and within thirty minutes of opening the box, I had removed the silica out of one of the heads (leaving only the piece between the coils to protect against shorts)and inserted cotton into both the top and bottom coil. Trimmed it up, put it in the tank, let it saturate and then started vaping. I really enjoyed it with the cotton (especially the flavor) so I pulled out the second "stock" coil head and used it a while, and I was fairly happy with the performance. I liked the cotton a little better, but I think the stock heads are not bad, and I'm sure Kanger will improve them down the line. I like the SVKP3 over all though.

  14. Hey, Placing my order. When will you have the coil tile up for wait list? Also, your picture shows a short shaft off the coil and other sites with the "coming soon" pic shows a longer stem/shaft above the coils. Thanks

      I will work on a waitlist shortly.

  16. Meh. I still use twists on occasion and I'm feeling like most of the new products are leaving me in the dust. I expected Kanger to address airflow issues that people always complain about, even though a lot of the complaints are more about personal taste, it's still an issue with customer satisfaction. Having a bottom coil that one could twist to regulate airflow according to taste, would be a dream come true!

    1. I found a site that sells replacement bases for the protanks that have smaller air holes to tighten the draw I bought a couple to try and they work great for a tighter draw and I think I paid $2.95 for them, much better than using the airflow controllers some people are talking about.

    2. @du2vye What you're describing sounds a lot like the upcoming Kanger AeroTank. http://www.kangeronline.com/products/kanger-aerotank-clearomizer-stainless-made-1pc-pack-coming-soon Adding airflow control appears to be *the* evolutionary difference to the ProTank-3 discussed here.

  17. This blog is just another example of why I only buy my hardware from Edward! When I first started vaping the "mom and pop" shops lead me down the rabbit hole time and time again. I almost put the digital down and went back to analog! Until....I found the Indiana native! Thank you Edward for ALWAYS providing top notch products, shipping and most important.....ADVICE! If you have never purchased from SunVapers, do so....you will be glad you did! Edward ALWAYS has the customers best intention in mind! Thanks Edward!

  18. This might have been answered just I didn't see it. Will the 3 work with a Joyetech eMode?

  20. I bought one of these kp3 and itazte vv battery as recommended by another shop. I keep having problems with flooding. This is my first e CIG and so far I'm not thrilled. I want to make clear this wasn't a purchase from your shop but I am looking to see if anyone else has had this problem and if anyone has some reccomendations.

  21. Can someone explain to me the main benefit to dual coil attys? It appears to me that all dual coil attys would need to be connected in parallel, thus to get the desired wattage at each coil, you would need to double the wattage output on the battery. It seems to me that dual coil tanks at best will go through juice much faster and drain a battery much quicker with negligble difference in taste and vapor production.

      Your actually correct on mostly everything except doubling the wattage maybe 1.5 times more perhaps. If persons were to use the dual coil wisely they could actually get better flavor juice economy. Since your getting more control of the heat applied between two separate coils: Less burning and the coils themselves could last longer since they are splitting the load. But most persons using a dual coil are not vaping like this. So yes your are right.

      1. Thanks for your candor. It's refreshing. The way I see it, you are going to need a pretty high power mod to drive the coils. I have an MVP 2.0 and am driving my Mini PT at 7.0 watts. If I put the PT 3 on my MVP, it would detect total resistance at 1.5 ohms and fire out 7.0 watts which would result in 3.5 watts per coil, which would be much cooler to get 7.0 watts per coil, I'd have to set the MVP to 14.0 watts which is not possible, so I'd have to use VV mode to set my battery at 4.58 volts which would draw about 14 watts total.

  22. Is there another version of the Protank 3 coming out? I have a 3 but it doesn't look like any of the pictures shown above. The top of mine is more cone shape. Also, do most like the iclear 30B or, no? It's probably me but, I seem to leak with that more than any other. I know the blog is 'older' but, great reading!

      Take a look at the Aerotank, the first batches of Protank 3 heads had some QC issues. The newer batch perform very well.

  23. I have been vaping for quite a while and the pt2 is my go to clearomizer. However I recently purchased the pt3 and I do love it, but how do I stop the darn flooding problem. It makes it very inconvenient to smoke when I have to tear the whole thing apart every 20 minutes. So far all I have done is switch almost completely back to the pt2, because this thing is not working right. Would it help if I turn up the power significantly?

      The newer heads perform better than the heads that come with the product. Also there a product called an aerobase that can help with the gurgling, leaking and dribbling. A good amount of power is 4.8 to 5v.

  24. Here's what I found with both my pro tank 2 and 3. They work great on my Bolt, my Smok pipe mod and Smok's The Natural. But The Natural has a much thinner contact pin and it pushes up on the positive contact of the atomizer. After that, it will no longer work with either of the other two mods, until I change my coil. I think it stretches the threads. This may be why the atomizer's wicks were smashed in that one photo.

    1. I'm hoping the aerotank bases I just bought solve this issue. I also have a Nautilus. It's a killer design, but it's a behemoth. They need a slim one. Aspire has some great new ideas, and I think they're going to give bottom coils a real boost of innovation.

  26. The way I adjust juice delivery (to avoid flooding or dry hits) is to add extra strands of silica wick. I do this with single and dual coil Kangers. I start with 2mm Ekowool braided silica and unbraid about an inch or so at a time. Then with high quality diagonal cutters (Erem 576e) I snip off how ever many strands I need and place them on the coil(s). Replace the chimney and cut the extra strands to length. The single coil attys come with a "flavor wick" that's equivalent to about two of the Ekowool strands, so I add to that with a new atty. Here's what I put in the various carts I use: Mini Protank 2 - 3 strands T3s - 5-6 strands T3d - 4 strands This tightens up the juice flow and it's easy to make small adjustments. When it's time to clean the atty I remove the extra wick and rinse in water, then do a dry burn.

  27. Thanks, Edward, for the tips about potential overtightening. Even a full year later, these comments are still spot-on. I'm a newbie to vape mods, & while my protank 3 single-coil is fine, this one was a huge disappointment; it wasn't working at ALL. Not with my basic 510 batteries, not with the vv X6... nothin. Not only did it fail to produce any vapor--it flooded right away (yum X[ ). Your warning about screwing in the base too tightly made me think: it's easy to fall into a habit of brutal tightening. These tanks seem ~eager~ to leak nic juice all over us hapless noobs! So, cautiously--using the vv battery--I loosened the coil by a 1/2-twist. It's now bringing up ~some~ vapor on the inhale. The vapor is still way scanty, but feels like it will start to perform better with a bit more adjustment & use.
