I received my Kanger Protank Glassomizer Monday and the first thing I thought was; this does not match anything I own in terms of quality.

This blog post is incomplete 2./13/2013. Check back soon.  I will add photos and tidibits until I actually have my crate!

I just want to mention SUPPORT ME AND KANGERTECH AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO INNOVATE TOGETHER!

So I went out to shop Provari’s and they were just way out of my price range. After watching myself in the video and just feeling like,  I could really complete my setup if I could just get over this purchase.  I got a mini, a 18350 and an Efest charger.  I really love how everything came together, and one of the most asked questions with Kanger products and provari: “Does it fit my Provari” Well now you know!!!  American and Chinese quality in one.  No offense Joyetech, but you have to admit, look at that Protank shine!

I didn’t fine tune my shot on the eVic but it does look very good either way.  I think the metal on metal look on the Provari is superior to the Metal on painted surface Joyetech used.

I suggested borosilicate glass for the Pyrex material.  Not sure if that is what was used but it is listed as Pyrex and it does have that dense Pyrex feel to it.  Take a look at the first prototype in the instruction card.

I did suggest we use all aluminum or stainless steel for the metals.  But regardless this looks fantastic and the Kanger Protank is just the beginning of glassomizers.

Protank base flipped the correct way it will set on a clearomizer.

Kanger Protank Base

This threading is as big as an evod base thread.  But the eVod did not fit.

I think I may have received the Protank in the very first Youtube video LOL.  My heads didn’t work well out of the packaging.  That is O.K. the Kanger Protank can use the Kanger eVod heads with small modifications.  Take the center pipe off and the center pin with the beveled edge and simply swap.  Now it will work as is, (without swapping pins)  but the airflow is not as good because the gasket and the flat washer style of the eVod head makes the draw too stiff for comfort. You will also need to shave the gasket back with an exacto knife or dremel type tool. I have done this about 10 times now and its super simple. If you use the eVod gasket when you torque the Protank down it will pancake restricting airflow.  I am not sure why but the longer center pin of the Protank does help with performance. I will have more pictures of these later.

The most annoying thing was when I received the Vision Eternity Kits and the shrink wrap was fused to the tin making it ugly and dirty then they stuck a “Type A” tank in there without redesign on the tin.  Good product with bad execution.  I suggested they do a case thing also but make sure its done right. I have seen the case from a friend it comes with a seal and shrink wrap.  You can see where the seal left is mark on the case.  I received mine already opened.

This case is a dream from a merchants perspective; from the standpoint that I don’t need to over bubble wrap it when I ship it. The time they took on everything really makes me happy.  If this is their first jump from poly-carbonates to Pyrex based I can only think it will get better from here.

2/13/2013 @ 3:42am more Kanger Protank photos coming soon.  Will be available 2/13/2013 @ approx 11pm PST. I will show the main difference between the eVod head, how to make the eVod head fit and compare it to a full size T3, Vivi Nova, eVod. What it looks like on a ego style battery.  And a brief Q&A as I am receiving many of the same questions I don’t want to leave you all hanging.

        I ordered one from Kanger two weeks ago and also just placed an order from your company Sun Vapors. Since you had some design involvement on the ProTank I just wish one of you guys realized that brass is brittle and weak. This will be the biggest potential problem on an otherwise excellent masterpiece. Stainless steel would have been the better choice.

        • [email protected] says:

          I actually asked for stainless steel.:) I agree with you. But really I am a tiny merchant on the fringes of the net. Perhaps if this is a successful line I can sway them toward SS. I found from a few American machinist I think it takes longer to machine SS, so production lower and labor would be higher. We will see in the future. We can both agree glass anything mass produced is a huge step in the right direction! Most of the parts on eVods and T3s is already brass so if those threading last these can be expected to be equally as durable/not durable.

          • madstabber says:

            I am a machinist and stainless takes a lot longer to machine than brass but brass is far from weak and definetly is not brittle it is a softer metal which makes it less brittle. The one plus in having brass over stainless is that my PV is stainless and if I drop it the tank threads will give and not the PV threads. But I still would prefer stainless because I’m a metal snob and I love stainless in fact all my revolvers are stainless whenever I can buy a gun I want and there is a choice of blued or stainless it’s stainless everytime.

    It’s 1106pm pacstandard & I’m refreshing like crazy 🙂

    Seriously, I am so excited about the direction Kanger is going with these. I love the T3 but am wary about polycarb… at home I’ve eliminated BPA plastics for my food and water storage and felt hypocritical in using polycarb clearos. The protank will ease my mind a great deal.

    Will and WHEN will you be stocking these, and do you have a general idea as to the pricepoint? I expect them to have a hefty tag, but if it means I can phase out polycarb in my life, so be it 🙂

    Thank you for helping Kanger in this direction!

    PLS EXCUSE THE CAPS … I HAVE EXTRENELY COMPROMIZED VISION DUE TO AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. JUST THE REASON I WAS HOPING THIS WAS THE ANSWER TO MY VAPING DREAMS. I MUST KEEP ALL TOXIC AND ARTIFICIAL MATERIAL EXPOSURE AT THE BAREST OF MINIMUM. I AM LESS THAN THRILLED THOUGH AND CONFUSED OVER YOUR GLOWING REVIEW FOR A PRODUCT THAT REQUIRES THE PURCHASE OF A SECOND DEVICE JUST FOR PARTS! IF IT DOES NOT PERFORM TO IT’S BEST ABILITY AS IT WAS INTENDED RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX THEN IT IS A FAIL AND YOUR ENDORSEMENT OF IT IS WHAT’S SO VERY WRONG WITH THE INDUSTRY. IT IS AS IF WE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THEY PRODUCE SO MANY DIFFERENT PRODUCTS WE HAVE ALREADY WASTED MONEY ON BUT NOW THEY HAVE 2 MORE WE CAN BUY SO THAT IF WE HAVE THE TIME, ABILITY, KNOWLEDGE AND TOOLS …THEN WE CAN DO THE WORK OURSELVES AND PUT THEM TOGETHER FOR ONE GOOD VAPING DEVICE! IF I HAD THE ABILITY TO TO TAKE APART, TROUBLESHOOT AND REASEMBLE THEN I WOULD HAVE STUCK WITH THE AGA-T OR SOME SIMILAR RBA. I AM AN EXTREMELY HONEST AND FAIR PERSON AND HATE THE WAY THIS SOUNDS SO PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND SOMETHING. I REALLY DO APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK AND TIME YOU HAVE INVESTED TO BRING A GREAT PRODUCT TO THE MARKET BUT BE CAREFUL OF DRINKING THIER COOLAID.

    Avid Los Angeles vapor here, stumbled on your site looking for info on the rumored new glass Kangor. Appreciate the info and will be back to purchase these the moment you have them
    Also, on iPhone with mobile Safari, a large portion of the screen is covered by the “share” popup. It’s annoying, covers much of the content preventing it from being read, and I found no way to make it disappear. Did I miss a button?

    • kenneth Dovich says:

      I most definitely want one or two of these Kanger Pro Tanks. I also want the replacement coils. I have wanted these since I first saw them and look forward to them more and more. Reviewers have them already and they really think they are good but the fact the drip tip is part of the tank was the only negative I have heard so far.

  6. GD Kelly says:

    Thanks for your great review. Really looking forward to purchasing one of the Pro Tanks from sun-vapors site. One question, will the Pro Tank fit on a Vamo V2? Thanks again, keep up the great reviews and work!

  7. Jim says:

    I got mine yesterday. used it all day and vaped it dry. No dry hits and best flavor from a Kanger product yet. I love my T3s, but thet will be collecting dust for a while,

  8. Andy Miller says:

    Thanks Edward! Great job. I’m already a fan – I have bought 4 of these. I got the ones in the cardboard packaging which I think is still very nice. I’m also a huge T2 fan. Before I found this site I was posting in a forum about how I really wished Kanger would come out with a T2 ProTank. I was amazed that you mentioned it in the video. Do you think there is a chance Kanger would consider a steel and pyrex T2 Pro?
