Kangertech has been very busy so far this year, producing an even larger range of products for the consumer who enjoys tasteful E-cigarette products with a performance to match the style. Today’s review features one of their new starter kits, the Emow 1300mah.
On the rear is a list of the contents you’ll receive with this starter kit, and their new authentication sticker along with the product security code online verification system attached below this.
To check the authenticity of your new Kangertech product, just apply a droplet of water to the Kangertech Logo, and it should disappear. Dry the wetted logo with a cloth and it will reappear again.
Kangertech has also included a sample of the authentication logo on a sticker inside the box. These two methods will help you confirm that you have purchased a legitimate Kangertech product, rather than a cloned copy.
Removing the inside container from the outer shell, you will find the Emow securely held in the centre by two slightly protruding plastic moulds. Simply ease both of these to one side and remove the new device.
Attached to the 1300mah Emow battery are the Clearomizer and a sticker with quick start instructions printed onto it. Please be sure to remove this sticker before operating your device.
Lifting the now empty plastic container up by the two finger grooved cut outs on each side will reveal the rest of the contents to be found inside. These include a user manual, one pack of five replacement 1.5ohm coil heads, an adapter, a USB cable, along with the authentication logo that I have already mentioned.
Also please be sure to check the warranty period should it be included with this device prior to purchasing.
Kangertech is clearly not a company to sit on their laurels and seem to be ever advancing the technologies and performance standards of their products, which can only be to the benefit of us the consumer. I have included a breakdown of the Emow for you to see how many times the word New appears.
One new Emow VV Battery: 1300mAh adjustable voltage battery, which can also fit the vision spinner 2 battery as well.
The all new Aerotank Mow Atomizer, which comes in a matching Pyrex glass and Stainless finish and holds 1.8ml of E-juice. The two Pyrex windows on both sides of the tank allow for easy viewing of your current E-juice levels. A new upgraded dual coil low resistance head assembly, in Stainless Steel, and the all new Airflow Control Valve V2 helps to contribute to a large vapour output for its size. I think you get the idea!
The Emow also comes in a choice of five different colour configurations allowing for a greater range of choice, and customer satisfaction. These can be viewed on the Kangertech website or at your local authorised Kangertech dealer with the standard 510 eGo threading. The inclusion of their new air control ring is another smart and useful addition that allows for a balanced adjustment of the air intake.
As this is a bottom fed tank the airflow ring is situated just above the thread for unscrewing or attaching the tank to the main body of the device, you will be pleased to know that Kanger have again made the control ring smooth but firm as they have done with the Areotank Mega and Mini, so slippage is unlikely to occur with this version as well. Likewise, the drip tip supplied with the Emow is very comfortable to vape with, helping to produce effortless vapour output.
A suggestion for using this is to try a smaller opening when Vaping thicker E-liquids, and increase it for thinner liquids as a rough guide. Remember less air flow will create the sensation of a tighter draw, and a larger airflow will create that of an airier one. If in doubt adjust the airflow ring until you find the balance that best works for the juice you are using at the time.
The sleek and stylish battery housing includes a five press on/off button that is very comfortably situated for ease of continued use. Five quick presses inside two seconds will activate the battery power for your device, displaying an illuminated rainbow effect for visual confirmation of this around the power switch.
You now have the choice of three simple but useful preset power options. By pressing the power button three times in quick succession inside one, second the colour display around the power switch will change each time you perform this action from Red 3.7v Green 4.2v and White 4.8v. When the battery power is low, the circular window around the power switch will flash fifteen times. At this point connect the USB charger as shown in the instruction booklet and recharge the device.
For the purpose of this review, I used the included Aerotank Mow along with the Aerotank Mini & Mega, atop of the beauty ring supplied with the latter.
I have also used a selection of different E-juices with varying flavours and PG/VG, mixtures including 100% VG on all three power settings for this device.
If you intend to use this range of E-Liquids, please make sure they meet the current requirements set out by your countries regulatory bodies.
For EU countries, more information on this can be found here along with REACH’s partner agencies from around the globe.
E-Liquids may contain diacetyl (DA) and acetyl propionyl (AP) or other carcinogenic ingredients or disease-causing substances, so please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews.
People can suffer from allergies to chemicals that may be present in the makeup of certain types of E-liquids or produced in their vapour. People can become sensitive to, or even allergic to Nickel or Titanium used in Temperature Controlled designed coils. Again, please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews. Also, check with your E-liquid supplier or the equipment manufacturers directly before purchase and use.
You might find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful, so thank you to Lars for allowing me to include them in my reviews. These calculators are currently under development, and the information that they contain may change at any time without notice. Please read the How It Works section for a more in-depth understanding. And never leave your device charging unattended, make sure you are using the recommended battery for your device, and always remember, SAFETY FIRST.
Potential Polycarbonate problems
It is well known that certain e-liquid ingredients can cause cracking or even melting of polycarbonate plastic or acrylic tanks and tubes. For further information on this subject, please check with your E-juice supplier or contact the manufacturer directly.
The first thing I noticed when using the Emow for the first time was its compact and comfortable size. Placement of the recessed fire button is situated right under your thumb as you place it in your hand. Pressure to activate it is minimal, with a soft reassuring, click for confirmation.
The battery housing is the first I have used personally that allows me to use a larger tank without feeling that it is overbalanced (top heavy), which is nice if, like me you wish to have more E-juice on board when you’re travelling away from home. That said for most of us unless you are a particularly heavy user, the included 1.7ml Aerotank Mow is more than sufficient for a working day’s vape as is the 1300mah battery size.
The three separate voltage options were more than sufficient to produce amazing vapour output from all three tanks included in this review. If you have read my reviews on the Aerotank Mega & Mini, it will come as no surprise that vapour production, as well as flavour representation, is also superb using the included Aerotank Mow as well.
The air adjustment ring is firm but smooth to operate, and when combining this with the three voltage options included, you have a great variety of choice when setting the best flavour vapour balance for your brand of E-juices and personal tastes. And don’t be in the least bit surprised by the amount of both vapour and flavour produced!
Venting of the tank appears to be sufficient, with the inclusion of six small holes around the circumference of the bottom of the battery housing.
They have the ability to produce a flavour that I would only have expected to experience using my more expensive RBA’s.
This is a very elegant device with excellent performance for its size, around that of a fountain pen, and fits very nicely into your inside jacket pocket, or your wife’s handbag as I have found out!
Kangertech also produces a larger version of this unit called the Kanger Emow Mega which I hope to review for you at some point as well. My advice is, vape it but don’t try to sign cheques with it just yet!
For further details on the Emow, Prices, and to enter your unique product security code to identify its authenticity, contact Kangertech directly or your nearest stockist.
