KangerTech evod started kit


I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and write a review on some of the vape gear, or e-cigs, I have been using. If you heard about the tornados that ripped through Alabama, the EF3 was less than 10 miles from my house. With that said, I have a decent excuse for being off the radar for awhile. I have been using the KangerTech evod kit for over a month now and I'm pretty proud to report that I have not touched smokeless tobacco since then. This is a pretty basic starter kit but is perfect for getting started into the world of vaping. The kit consists of 2 650 mah batteries, 2 evod clearomizers, a USB charger with plug, and 5 spare coil heads. There is a coil head already installed to each clearomizer bringing the coil head total to 7. I have been cleaning my coil heads in scalding hot water from my keurig machine after every couple of tanks, this seems to extend the life of the coil and wick a good bit. I have taught myself how to rebuild the coils so I can keep my costs down.

I ordered my kit from a great vendor, the vape bros. I placed my order late in the afternoon and it still  made it to my house 2 days later. They carry a decent selection at a great price. I picked my kit up for right around 36 bucks. I brought my total to 55 with the addition of a clearomizer upgrade. I was offered a free bottle of juice for participating in the "product review" section of their website. I selected the almond amaretto and my nicotine level. It was also shipped super fast and packaged very well. 

The e-liquid had a warm mouth feel and I could distinctly taste the rosted almonds laced with hints of mildly sweet amaretto. I vaped the entire bottle in a matter of a few days but it was too good not to vape it into oblivion. I plan to try the rest of their juice offerings in the near future and report back on them as well.

The batteries included with the kit are made for the evod setup but have 510 and ego threading so it will allow for the use of a wide variety of clearomizers and tanks. It is nice to have 2 batteries so you can use one while the other charges. I usually get about 8-9 hours of use on a single charge with decently heavy vaping. The included batteries are not variable voltage so not all resistance coil heads will work well. I found that if I rebuild the coil heads with a 1.8 ohm coil I get a superb vape from the factory battery and clearomizer. 

The naysayers can say nay all they want to but I can vouch for e-cig devices working to reduce or eliminate unwanted tobacco use. I began this journey with every intention of quitting my dip habit but not my cigar habit. I enjoy premium cigars a bit too much to give them up, plus I don't see them as nearly detrimental to my health compared to smokeless tobacco or cigarettes. I have been smokeless tobacco free for nearly 2 months and have not used it at all in this time. This was a huge accomplishment and even my wife is impressed. She is also glad I have no dip bottles floating around the house or in the car and I'm not tied to something to spit into while enjoying my nicotine.
