Kanger is known for its innovative and high quality vaping equipment, who have released a big range of clearomizers, box mods and vape pens. The Protank 3 is one of their top selling mouth-to-lung clearomizers and has become one of the most popular mid-range clearomizers on the market.
Build Quality and Design
Made entirely from pyrex glass and stainless steel, the Protank 3 is a great looking and great feeling piece of kit. The looks are modern and sleek and the clearomizer can be easily broken down into its five component parts, which makes cleaning and maintaining it easy and hassle free.
It fits together like a dream, which is a testament to its precise and thought-out design. With a 2.5ml capacity, it holds enough ejuice for a full day’s worth of vaping for your average vaper, and refilling the tank is easy and clean.
Pyrex glass is a vastly superior material to build the tank out of, and doesn’t crack with certain eliquids like the cheaper plastic tanks do. One disadvantage of pyrex glass clearomizers is that they can break more easily, however, the Protank is well built and can survive the odd knock and bump.
As well as this, the Protank 3 tanks can be replaced with a range of different coloured glass, which means that they can be replaced cheaply if they do break – a definite plus for any butter-fingered vapers out there who are prone to dropping their ecigarettes!
One criticism is that the Protank 3 does leak quite readily, especially if over filled or if the wicking material in the atomizer gets too saturated. If this does happen, try blowing on the drip tip to force any surplus eliquid out of the airholes.
Airflow and Vapour Production
Compared to the Protank 1 and Protank 2, the Kanger Protank 3 has noticeably improved both the vapour production and airflow.
The biggest change is that it now uses dual coil atomizers, which produce a lot more vapour and last longer before they need to be replaced. With older atomizers, the average vaper could expect to get one to two weeks’ vaping out of a coil before it needed to be replaced.
With the new dual coil atomizer, they can now last up to three weeks before the flavour starts to noticeably degrade. It’s worth noting that the Protank 1 and 2 atomizer coils are not compatible with the Protank 3, which uses the same coils as the Kanger Aerotank.
We found that the Protank 3 performed at its best when running with just over 5 volts. It produced thick, full plumes of vapour and intense, clean flavours which really demonstrated how good the dual coil atomizer is.
The juiceholes in the atomizer were large and fed the coil with a consistent flow of ejuice, which meant that we got no dry hits, even when vaping at comparatively high voltages with high VG ejuice. We used R.A.W ejuice’s Blueberry Yogurt from Vape Mail to test the Protank 3 and the flavours were rich and clear.
The airflow is also improved, which means that you can get bigger draws out of the Protank, especially when compared to other mouth-to-lung clearomizers in this price bracket, such as the Aspire Nautilus
- Great build quality
- Fantastic atomizers
- Sleek, modern looks
- Good vapour production and flavour
- Can leak if overfilled
Kanger Protank 3 Review Verdict
Competitively priced and expertly designed, the Kanger Protank 3 more than lives up to its reputation as a market leader. With great vapour production, fantastic atomzier coils and a good looking design, there is very little to criticise with this clearomizer and were it not for the leaking issue it would have gotten full marks.
