The Kanger Subvod is a great backup device to carry around with you, especially when travelling long distance. Charge it with a standard USB. No screens to worry about, it fires at a constant 3.7 Volts.
The clearomizer is the new Subtank Nano with topfill, easy to use and a lot of coil options, including an Nano RBA kit for building your own coils. The older Subtank nano (bottom fill) was always overshadowed by the more awesome Subtank Mini / Toptank, but still popular in its own category.
So with the Subvod, you’re getting a proven tank and coils in a simple setup. What else can you ask for?
The finish is high quality and definitely worth the price. It comes in black, red and stainless steel. I actually wanted the black version but it was quite hard to find locally.
From my testing, the Subvod can easily fire the newer (and popular) Clapton coils by Kangertech, although it will get pretty hot after a while. In fact just using the included 0.5Ohm SSOCC coils you still get some heat, but that is normal for a device like this.
The Subvod is a step up from the last generation Kanger Evod, and can produce much bigger clouds. The battery should last just as long as the Evod even though it’s larger. That’s because it needs to drain more power to fire up those 0.5 Ohm coils compared to just 1.5 Ohm on the Evod.
For a beginner or a backup device, the Subvod is just perfect.
