The Kanger Nebox TC Now Available for Pre-Order
By Lindsay Fox Posted October 10, 2015
Kanger has announced that their new device – the Nebox – will be hitting the shelves soon! It’s an all-in-one device, incorporating an atomizer and mod into the same unit – basically like an eGrip but with temperature control and a huge 60 W maximum output. With the success of the Subox starter kit, the Kanger Nebox looks set to be a huge hit with just-switching smokers and vapers looking for a simple-yet-capable mod.
The Kanger Nebox: Like a Temperature Control eGrip
Kanger’s Nebox is a slim box mod, available in black, white, red and blue, and taking many design cues from the Kbox Mini but being notably wider. The device has a display screen and two buttons to adjust your settings, and a micro-USB port also located on the same edge. Aesthetically, it looks pretty good; although Phil Busardo points out that the width may be an issue when it comes to holding the mod.
There isn’t too much information available about the features of the Kanger Nebox, but it will have variable wattage up to a respectable 60 W – plenty for most vapers and easily enough to put out some substantial clouds – and takes coils as low as 0.15 ohms. The temperature control function works with both nickel and titanium coils, and the Nebox comes with a nickel coil pre-installed.
The main feature is the eGrip-like combination of an atomizer and mod into a single device, with a huge 10 ml capacity tank included on the Nebox. It also includes an RBA attachment, so you can build your own coils, but it also works with pre-built stainless steel organic cotton coils (OCC). These are accessed using a coil-slot screw at the bottom of the device. It also comes with a Delrin drip tip.
It runs on a single 18650 battery, which you can recharge using the micro-USB port. The battery is also accessed from the bottom in the same way as the coils.
It looks like it will be a fantastic option for new vapers, but Phil Busardo points out a couple of issues: the device doesn’t offer any form of airflow control – and the included coils have a fairly open draw – and you can’t access the tank to clean it out. For many, these issues won’t be too big a deal, but it’s something to consider before you place an order.
When Can I Get the Kanger Nebox? How Much is it?
The Nebox is set to go on full release at the end of October, and it's available to pre-order for $79.95. This is actually a bit more expensive than the Subox Mini starter kit, but with the addition of temperature-control and the all-in-one design it does have a lot to offer.
