The ever-popular vape pen is making a comeback. The Kanger Subvod is a vape pen with a sub-ohm tank that was designed with beginning vapers in mind. It is easy to use and great for those wanting to quit cigarettes.

Kanger Subvod Testing and Performance

The Kangertech name has long been associated with high-quality vape products. The Subvod is a combination vape pen and tube mod with a sub-ohm tank that pushes out clouds like the more technologically advanced sub-ohm tanks.

This little device performs more along the lines of a mod rather than a vape pen.

It has the long tube body with built-in 1300mah battery and sports a sub-ohm tank with adjustable airflow and uses Kanger SSOC coils. I got this device about a week ago and so far it has been performing really well and I am in love with it already. Here is some information on the device and an overview of the kit contents.

  • Tank capacity: 3.2 ml
  • Adjustable airflow
  • Pyrex glass tank
  • Micro USB charging
  • Maximum power: 30W
  • Coil resistance: 0.5 ohm
  • Uses SSOC coil head
  • Battery output: 1300 mah

Build quality and Design

I really like the look of this vape pen. It resembles a tube mod and the sub ohm tank works great with the 0.5-ohm coils. You can use other resistances in this tank and the battery will self-adjust the wattage to the coil resistance automatically. You could go higher resistance but the device will not power on at less than 0.4 ohms.

I ordered the pink one and it came in a nice little box with a matching pink charging cable.


This device is pretty sturdy, I haven’t had any accidents with it but if I did it does come with a spare glass tank just in case. It feels like a well-made device and Kangertech is a quality manufacturer of vapor products.

Ease of Use

It is easy to use and easy to charge as well. It is a simple device so you just plug the charging cable into the port on the bottom of the battery and you can vape while it’s charging (pass-through).

You never have to worry about the battery going dead as long as you have a charger with you. You can charge it with your laptop or by an outlet with a wall adapter. The battery charges in 2 – 3 hours and will last the average vaper most of the day.

Vaping Experience

I have been enjoying this vape pen very much. I wish I would have had something like this when I first got started vaping. This would have been perfect for me back then. Since I like this device so much I have recommended it to a couple of friends who want to start vaping.

It has good flavor and makes quite a bit of vapor for a small device. I am really loving it.

This is one device that I will keep in my collection of vape gear for running errands and trips around town because it requires no adjusting of any kind. I just fill it and it’s ready to go.


Filling the tank is super easy with the top-fill design. Simply unscrew the very top ring (careful not to turn the glass at the same time) and remove to find the large juice slots and the center ring. The fill holes are large enough to fit most bottle tops. Fill and replace the top and you’re ready to vape again.


I have not had any problems with leaking, even when laying the device down on the desk for charging. It seems to be an airtight system with no leaks or gurgling.


The Toptank Nano produces quite an impressive amount of vapor for just using a 0.5-ohm coil. It’s a great little tank that produces vapor on par with some of the more advanced tanks on the market. The wide open air slots on the bottom create good airflow to the coils and the stainless steel coils are some of the best I have used so far. I wasn’t expecting this set up to produce the amount of vapor that it does. It performs very well and is a well-made device.


This tank uses the SSOC coils which means stainless steel and organic cotton wicking. They produce really good flavor in this device. The taste of the juice comes through and the increased airflow produces good vapor as well.

What We Liked

+ Easy to use
+ Top-fill tank
+ Large fill ports
+ Great Performance
+ Ability to use other drip tips

What We Didn’t

Don’t like the charging port on the bottom, but can vape while charging (not really a con)


I love how affordable this vape pen is.

I have seen it advertised on different websites for $20 – $29 dollars. This is a great device for under $30. And the replacement coils come in packs of 5 for around $12 and they are compatible with the Kanger Subtank, Nebox, and Toptank Mini as well making it an even better value.

Final Verdict

The Kanger Subvod is perfect for new vapers just getting started because it is compact and stylish, and affordably priced at less than $30 for a complete kit.

The SSOC coil heads come in 0.5, 1.5, and 1.2 resistances for versatility in your vaping experience.

I recommend this device to anyone wanting something simple and easy to use to get started vaping or as a backup device to add to their collection. It might be an eliquid vape pen geared towards new vapers but experienced vapers who like simple devices will love it as well. You can get all the latest vape pen reviews from License to Vape here.
