The SOCC and the VOCC will replace the Single and Dual Coils from Kanger.
Kanger has updated both the single coil and the dual coil to new cotton coils and has given them new names. While near visually the same to the untrained eye, the differences are significant and users should be informed so they can get the most out of their coils. In this post we will cover the single coils first, and a separate blog post to cover the new VOCC/Dual Coil switch.
Lets break em down!
No more top wicks!
In this image we can see that there is a large difference between the silica and cotton. The cotton coil is fluffier and possibly improves both leaking and wick ability. Because of so many liquids and vaping styles its hard to tell if this will be an improvement overall or a downgrade. We do not want to advertise in either direction.
One thing is for sure, the flavor wicks gone on the cotton going away is an AWESOME deal as these were easy to move and mis-align.
Coil seems to contact the substrate more.
A very close up look at the coil reveals how neat the new coil is wrapped. We did not seek out the coil for photography. This coil was picked out of the first box we were able to open. Also the fanning out of the wick opening almost make it seem as if these could leak a bit less than thier silica predecessor.
Really its the same coil with cotton and without the two little silica “flavor wicks” (the expression used back in the day). This change is much smaller than what Kanger did to the Dual Coil. I think this change is going to be positive and even bring back many users of the single coil looking for low wattage and low cost vaping solutions that do NOT burn through juice.
We actually have had this product for a few weeks making sure we were not promoting a dud or a gimmick. I can honestly say the feedback is mostly positive and I also thank Kanger for continuing to update their products and not leaving their fan base of Protank and evod fans behind.
That is the mark of a good company.
