The battery is a 900mAh manual ego-type of battery, one of the most recognizable types used in vaping. This is a very compact battery, at only a few centimetres longer than the 650mAh, but comes with almost 300mAh more than its lightweight counterpart. This means that it lasts up to three hours longer in between charges!
While it won’t last nearly as long as a typical 2500mAh cell, it lasts long enough (almost a day of moderate vaping). It is also very sleek and fully assembled (including the atomizer included in the kit) it fits perfectly on a shirt pocket.
I have a few of these batteries for those times I need a discreet and lightweight setup. In terms of size and convenience, few batteries can match the humble eGo.
The battery has all the regular functions (5 clicks off/on, under-voltage and short protection)and puts out 4.2 volts when freshly charged.
The 5 click on/off function is handy, especially when you are travelling or have several items in the same pocket where you keep the device; it will prevent accidental firing, destroy atomizer insulators and even damage the battery itself.
Quick and easy charging
Charging the battery is very easy. All you need to do is to screw on the battery on the threaded part of the charger until snug (don’t over tighten it, as it may push the positive pin down, causing damage to the internals, as well as chewing up the insulator).
Afterwards, you can plug the charger into a suitable USB power source such as a power bank or laptop; however, you will need to make sure these devices can safely provide 5V DC at 0.5 Amps (specified on the charger).
I used a mobile phone power adapter that runs on those specs. The charging process was quick and took under two hours. While charging, a small LED will flash red and green once it is finished.
While it is charging, I prepare the Evod-style atomizer. This atomizer is similar to the Protank (also made by Kanger), with a very sleek stainless steel tank that perfectly matches the battery and glass windows to see the e-liquid inside (you won’t have to worry about tank-cracking e-liquids).
It comes with replaceable coil heads that are inexpensive but perform very well. The airflow is looser than the CE4 type of clearomizers, and the dual coils allow it to produce considerably more vapour and better flavour.
Filling the tank is also very easy; all you have to do is turn the tank upside down and unscrew the base. The replaceable coil head is attached to the base.
Afterwards, you fill the upside-down tank with e-liquid, making sure not to go past the chimney. Afterwards, screw the base back into the tank, and then screw the atomizer onto your battery.
After loading up the clearomizer with the free e-liquid, I screwed it onto the battery (which is now fully charged) and turned it on. It vapes very well, with excellent flavour.
The vapour production won’t win could competitions, but it is more than enough to fog up a small room. The atomizer gets a little warm when chain vaping, though the silica wicks can keep up with moderate back-to-back vape sessions. The flavour is very clean.
After about a week, the coil finally reached the end of its lifespan. I tried to resurrect the dead coil by recoiling it with 32 AWG kanthal microcoil with NR leads and cotton.
This drastically improved flavour and vapour production and is almost on par with a Kayfun (albeit with much less airflow).
However, the drawback of using cotton is that you will need to replace it when it gunks up, unlike the original silica wick, which only needs dry burning and a quick rinse under the tap.
Overall, this little kit is an excellent starter kit, as well as a great on-the-go setup for more experienced vapers that need a lighter and more discreet rig for work/travel. If you buy this kit, make sure to pick up a few extra dual coil heads – it is always a good idea to have spares.
