Genitank – Kangers New Clear Atomiser Series
The last few months however has seen a big influx of new tanks hitting the shelves. The new Aerotank V2 with the Mini, Mega, Giant and Turbo tanks are available as well as their new Genitank series that also features a Regular, Giant and a Mega.
So what is the difference between the Aerotank and the Geintank? This review is going to take a closer look.
Kanger Genitank vs Aerotank Difference
So first things first, the main difference with the Aerotank series and the Genitank is that the Aerotank is made with stainless steel and the Genitank is made with copper with a chrome plated finish. Both have the same Pyrex glass.
Before that puts you off completely let me tell you the price difference. Depending where you buy from you can be looking at around a £7-10 difference in price. That’s a good chunk of change for sure, enough for a pack of coils or a couple of bottles of e-liquid!
OK so that’s the main differential but a noticeable one. Side by side the look and feel of the Aerotank is superior, which I guess comes as no surprise. The shiny finish of the Genitank, especially the top part where the drip tip sits does come across slightly cheap. I suppose though if I didn’t have the Aerotank sat side by side with it then I probably wouldn’t comment on it so much!
Anyway…. The final, main point of difference is the airflow control. The Genitank has an update control which I do actually prefer. When turned, the ring glides smoothly over four holes, you simply leave as many or as few as you would like open to fit in with how airy/tight you want your draw to be.
Filling The Genitank
The Mega is filled from the bottom, one thing I do like about these tanks is that they have four hole you can poke your e-liquid bottle nozzle through making it virtually impossible to accidentally get liquid in the centre tube. Then just pop the base back on making sure the coil head is firmly in place and after allowing the juice to settle into the coil for a few minutes you are good to go. Very easy overall.
Genitank Mega performance
The Genitank comes with Kangers 1.8 oHm “Newly designed coil unit using our latest technology”. This coil is according to Kanger (I haven’t tried yet) compatible with the Aerotank, Protank 3, EVOD 2 and T3D. So a plus for cross compatibility.
Performance wise I cannot fault the Genitank in any way. I was vaping a new e-liquid from Liberty Flights Temperance range called Blood Tonic and the flavour and vapour volume was superb. No noticeable difference to the Aerotank for me.
Yep, the time will come to replace the coils and in my case the glass tank. I dropped mine on a tiled floor :(. Replacement coils will cost around £8.95 for a pack of 5 are available in a number of resistances, 0.8ohm,1.0ohm,1.2ohm,1.5ohm,1.8ohm. The pyrex tank replacements are approx £2-3.
Overall – Final thoughts
Performance wise I thought the Kanger Genitank did a great job, flavour and vapour volume with the 1.8 oHm coils was excellent.
When it came to the actual build I wasn’t a massive fan of the copper with the chrome plated finish. It doesn’t have the same quality feel as a stainless steel tank which is no surprise. Having said that the price difference is pretty significant so if a budget Kanger tank is what you want then this is your man! I would definitely recommend giving this clearomiser a try.
