Kangertech KBOX 200w (Watt) Temp Control Review

it's small 200 watts dual 1860's and

even does temp control on nichrome wire

yeah the K box 200 welcome to the vapor

trail channel I'm Tony kangaroos been

putting out a whole bunch of new

products and they've got some that are

still to come

including the new k Box 200 they're

doing some stuff that they haven't done

before you know temp control just kind

of came in recently with them and this

box even does temp control on nichrome

wire which I have no idea about sometime

you're going to pretend to but it's nice

to see that they're adding this stuff

and I'm sure that's going to be useful

for a lot of different people now for me

temp control is just not there yet for

me because it's not simple enough I'm a

simple vapor as I know many of you are I

like to just throw it on wattage and use

it you know set it and forget it that

kind of thing but for vapors that like

to tinker with everything dial

everything in this will probably be

really nice as soon as they get temp

control to where it's like you know

wattage and I can just set this stuff I

mean I think that it is the future I

just add it for me it's not there yet

best part about it though is you can use

any of these temp control mods in

wattage mode if that's your thing and

then all you have the possibility of

using that temp control option later on

let's go ahead and dig in and check out

the K box 200 we've kind of made a

little bit of a change in their box this

time it's not the one with the fancy

magnetic flap on it or anything like

that but it's still very solid and very

nice-looking packaging let's just see a

little bit of the information on the

back I'll hold that on there for a

second you could pause it if you'd like

to read it of course they do have their

authentication QR code on there but the

mod itself actually has a serial number

and you could check that on their

website as well it's got kind of a funky

way of doing that and I'll show you in

just a second but that's the box inside

you've got your manual a little thing

about authentication and these little

strips right here that you've seen

before with K box mini that you would

wrap around your batteries so that the

battery shows black through the vent

holes and this is the serial number

checking that you could do on the device

I haven't done it yet but it's kind of

like if you remember old gaming systems

you had a plus + click click and all

that kind of stuff you can get it to

show you the serial number on it

doing that combination of clicks I do

like how they're laying it out in their

manual now just to kind of make it

really easy for you to figure out what

you're doing with the mod of course that

was French but here this is the English

side you can see what I'm talking about

but your functions and stuff over here

some warnings and this is more

information about the box I'll leave

that up again for a second so you can

take a look a lot of different stuff

with the resistances and stuff like that

but they give you an easy listing on

there so inside the box is the box and

that's it there's nothing else inside of

here just give you a couple of really

quick comparisons this is the sigelei

150 watt box mount it's a dual 1860 it's

uh well it's kind of almost about the

same width but this is decidedly larger

I mean that's it next to it so you know

this is a nice small little box it kind

of reminds me of the any box oh the

other mod that I was going to compare it

to is the evic vtc mini very popular mod

this is a single battery mod and it's

really not a whole lot larger than that

it's about the same height and only

slightly wider and this battery showing

through here that's what those little

strips would be for they've done away

with magnets on this one as far as

holding the battery door on it just kind

of slides right off of there it's a

little bit loose when you first get it

if you give it a pinch right here and

just kind of Bend that a little bit

it'll tighten it up but I haven't had

any problems with it coming off you'll

see that there's little grooves that are

right there there are also a groove in

the side of the panel here you can see

that up at the top and that fits right

into the grooves once you slide it on

slides on real nicely and I haven't had

any issues with the coming off plenty of

ventilation here they put a big K on the

side I'm not a huge fan of that but it

is what it is plenty of venting though

at least we know that so again that pops


that's your battery compartment right

there I've got two samsung 18 650 25

hour batteries in here and pull those

out of there the first ones easy to take

out because it's got a little finger

thing there the second one not as easy

but if you have any hard time there's

little holes back here you can just poke

it through with something just make sure

that it's not something sharp because

you do not want to tear your little

battery casings does have the plus and

minus on here so it's easy to remember

how to put them in there the inside is

plastic and I've had some people say I

don't know if I like that but you know

what a lot of mods are like that you

might not know that they're like that

but a lot of mods are like that it keeps

them light and it also keeps the

manufacturing cost down so to put your

batteries in there these are

spring-loaded all you have to do

you is put that in and you pop it in

like that and then this one the positive

is going to go on the top so you just

put it in like that and good to go and

it's telling me that it's off you just

slide that on and it's done here's the

top of it says Kate box 200 the side of

it these buttons right here are very

familiar if you're used to the sub box

mini or nano USB port on the bottom of

it I don't think that you can update or

upgrade the software the firmware that's

on this but you know that's entirely

possible I haven't seen anything

anywhere indicating that at all and more

venting down here on the bottom you'll

notice on the 510 thread that it's kind

of recessed down there I haven't had any

problem with any of my tanks fitting on

here it says right in the manual that

that is a spring-loaded copper pin for

the positive pin you know it's really

not that springy

I mean I'm pushing on it right here and

it does have a little bit of play I see

it's a little bit springy but it's not

like a really super duper springy 510

pin but I will tell you that I haven't

had any problems with any tanks fitting

flush on here and let's just go ahead

and put this tank on here this is the

Vengeance tank do have a review for this

on the channel no gap or anything

between the tank of the mod you know the

only thing is that when that is the case

you may scratch up your mod and this

one's had limited use but it's already

getting some scratching on the top there

but you know if your tanks going to be

on their covers that upright let's go

ahead and turn this thing on it says

it's off and you get the kangertech

screen there and then we're in wattage

mode right now that's what I've been

vaping this at so standard can't fall

coil in here the screen is oriented this

direction but if you want it the other

way you can just hold these two buttons

down and it flips over to the other side

flip it back alright

38 watts is what I've been running this

coil at to turn it on or off it's five

clicks so when it's on five clicks one

two three four five and it goes off turn

it back on it's five more clicks now

this does temp control and nickel

titanium stainless steel and nichrome

which I haven't seen any mods do it on

my chrome yet I'm not a real expert on

temp control so I'm just going to run

through them real quickly so that you

can see what the different functions are

on them so let's go ahead what we're

going to do is you click it three times

one two three and then you're an ni200

that little ni

there is telling you that that's your

ohms the wattage that it's going to run

at it's set at 200 Watts 380 degrees

Fahrenheit and that's titanium that is

nichrome the nicr right there

and that is stainless steel s us then

we're back to wattage mode and that's

pretty much what I run most of my mods

at and so it's still in wattage mode and

I'm going to put this coil on here this

tank within ni200 coil we're going to go

to ni200 now it's on ni200 it's reading

at 0.1 3 ohms and when you fire it C it

should be asking me if this is a new

coil or not and it works sometimes and

sometimes it doesn't when it does that

it calibrates it and locks in your

resistance so you don't actually get a

little lock symbol there but it didn't

appear to do that right there now I have

used it and it worked fine but sometimes

it just doesn't right now it should be

there we go so it says new coil you say

yes and then that would lock the

resistance in at 0.18 which I think this

is really more like point 1/2 or 1/4 but

since I've been firing it that's how it

would work and so basically you've got

your wattage in there 200 watts and your

temperature you can go up and down with

your temperature of course you can go

all the way to the top which should be

600 and then once you get to that it's

it's the top of Fahrenheit and then you

get into Celsius so when you get to the

bottom of Fahrenheit it'll go to Celsius

and then when you get to the top of

Celsius it stops but you can also take

it all the way down to the bottom of

Celsius which will take it to Fahrenheit

there you go now as far as wattage on

this one your temp control you don't

change that it just adjusts the wattage

for you up to 200 watts apparently and

it'll just basically shut off when you

reach the temperature or it'll keep

regulating it until you know it keeps it

at that temperature I haven't tested

nichrome on here with what temp control

but I have tested the ni200 and

stainless steel and they seem to work

pretty good now the box does have all

the protections and warnings and stuff

that you'd expect and they've got a few

remarks over here that are worth reading

so whether you're into temp control or

just plain wattage it's a decent little

mod I mean you know the size of it is


and it's dual 1860 so it's going to last

a while and I would like to point out

that the display is big and easy easy to

read I like that it's kind of got like a

magnified effect as you move it put this

crown tank on here it has a stainless

steel coil in it alright and we're going

to give this 420 degrees now it's not

asking me if it's a new coil or not but

it's working and I see that the ohms

have jumped a little bit let's pull this

off of here again now it's asking me if

it's a new coil yes it's a new coil so

now it's calibrated it at 0.64 ohms and

I believe this is a point five ohm coil

that's in here but again I fired it so

it's probably a little bit warm you're

supposed to calibrate that when they're

at room temperature it's working well

though let's just fire it real quick and

see what we get so I never even got up

to that temperature but the coils not

burnt so I guess that's the key don't

want to get dry or burnt it's so I may

not be the best person to test this for

temp control I want to check out some of

the other guys that are big into temp

control and see what they say about the

temp control in here but while it's a

bit spotty for me it seems to work so I

don't know maybe it's just me but

there's a few times trying to use temp

control where it should be asking me if

it's a new coil so that that's the

that's the only way to set your

resistance on this thing basically it's

going to calibrate it when it says is

this a new coil if it doesn't do that

then I'm kind of weary I'm like okay

well what is it basing it on the last

coil or but anything's a possibility you

know me using it wrong or this is a

pre-release model maybe that the chip

isn't exactly right I don't really know

and I don't know about being able to

update the firmware on this but in a way

I think it works really well in wattage

mode and from my limited use of temp

control in it it is working well on that

I've got this in wattage mode now I've

got it at 40 watts this is a point two

one ohm coil inside the vengeance tank

and I've got some I love donuts juice in

here format

I'm going to take a little vape on this

yeah like I say even a temp control mode

when I was able to get it you had to

take the tank off a couple of times put

it back on to get it to do that because

I don't want a vape in temp control

unless I've got my resistance you know

set locked calibrated whatever you want

to call it now somewhere around here

I've got some titanium coils and I'll

test that out to if there's any kind of

significant thing that I need to update

you with then I'll let you know in a

future update video a Kangra products

are typically inexpensive compared to

other products that are out there so I'm

sure this is going to come in at a good

price point and with dual 18650 for a

long time

I think it's pretty durable I have no

rattle in this thing at all no button

rattle or anything else the screen is

nice and big and I really like that it

fits well in the hand and it's really

really thin if you look at the actual

mod itself it's just super thin it's no

wider this way then the batteries

themselves will only slightly if you're

a fan of the K Box series like the sub

box mini and the sub box Nano then I

think you'll probably be a fan of this

too sturdy construction I'm not a huge

fan of the big K on here but it's good

to know that we have plenty of

ventilation for this thing there's

ventilation on the bottom ventilation

here ventilation there they even give

you the little strips to put on your

battery to black out the the window

there if you want to do that I

personally don't mind the green or

whatever color of my battery showing

through that K on the side there those

so it's pretty cool twenty two

millimeter tanks fit perfectly on here

because of the size the width of the mod

that way but if you put a tank that's

bigger than 22 millimeters you will have

some hangover otherwise I think it's a

great vape let me have another one here

well there we go the K box 200 dual 1862

control mod lots of options on this one

and I think it'll be popular thank you

so much for your support of this channel

it's unbelievable we're almost at 43,000

subscribers now and I sometimes I

sometimes I still can't believe it the

guide to vaping best of 2015 survey has

ended and I didn't want to push it here

in the channel I wanted to see what

would happen organically I think I was

like number 13 in best YouTube channel

which that's fine bye

I mean grim green one at first place and

I knew that was going to happen I love

grim green I've got a great channel so

thank you so much if you voted for me on

that survey hey do us all a favor and go

check out not blowing smoke

org and casada or two great

organizations that can help you to fight

for our rights to vape that's going to

do it for this episode we'll catch you

next time on the vapor trail Channel
