Hi folks, hello vapers, it’s Mike Godwin with another Luxury Special review.
This is Kangertech K1 box mod.
Among the mainstream producers, Kangertech is the only that I know, who, in cooperation with Asvape, has made a series of box mods made of stabilised wood.
Not long ago this box mod had its price tag set at $180 which was quite too much. Nowadays it’s been sold in various clearance sales for a tad more than half of its former price.
For the price you can get it now, this is a must-vape device.
Single 18650 battery powered DNA75 box mod made of stabilised wood, made for 22mm atomizers. Maximum power output 75W. Now it’s cheaper than the DNA chip itself.
This is what the package looks like.
A lot of e-shops will send a random-coloured one, a few will have separate pieces advertised for you to choose from.
Inside you can find the mod along with user manual, battery advice card and a MicroUSB charging cable. A standard package for all the DNA-powered devices.
It’s luxurious for being made of stabilised wood, a light material that is warm on touch. However the chassis is zinc alloy. When you tighten the battery lid too much, the chassis starts to spread out.
It’s not a bad device. I have it updated, the chip works great. I’ve read complaints about the buttons rattle.
Let’s have a close-up look at the details and temperature mode test, afterwards we’ll talk about the pros and cons back at the studio.
Beforehand, I’d like you to subscribe to my content, share and like this video. Any additional info is available in the video description.
The wood looks quite nice. It’s well polished and wax-cured.
The zinc alloy frame feels a little cheap in comparison. The buttons are made of stainless steel. The battery lid is also quite remarkable.
Some of you may find the elevated 510 threading annoying. You can see it looks quite well with any 22mm atomizer.
I overtightened the battery a little so you can see how the chassis behaves.
The buttons rattle a little, but it’s nothing that would annoy me. There’s the MicroUSB charging port.
The 510 threading is thick and solid, anchored by these three screws. The positive pin is spring-loaded.
The battery lid is adjustable accordingly to the size of your battery cell. It’s a marvelous idea, I’m quite surprised I’ve not seen this system on other box mods.
It seems like there is no battery polarity indication. The positive contact is inside the battery tube, as usual. The positive contact is not spring-loaded.
With the battery pulled out you can see the chassis sit flush with the stabilised wood.
Here you can see the frame spreading with the battery overtightened.
The resistance is 0.27Ω.
The temperature range is 100-300°C (200-600°F)
Evolv DNA chip is said to be 95% battery effective. Also you get great temperature control.
The final verdict depends only on its price. For the price it was brought to the market, I’d say it’s totally not worth buying.
It’s a cheap Chinese manufacturing of a stabilised wood DNA device. You can buy a similar device for under $100.
The clearance price of this mod is very similar now.. You can buy it under $100 at local (Czech) retailers. For this price it’s totally worth buying.
Let’s start with the cons first. The chassis could be made more sturdy and not this springy. At some products, the buttons rattle quite a lot. The 510 threading elevation causes 22mm atomizer restriction. It’s made of Zinc alloy.
Now about the pros: It’s a DNA75-powered device made of stabilised wood. For the price you can get it now, it wouldn’t even be so painful for you if you broke it accidentally. Eventually you could put the chip out and use it in your custom box mod.
Thank you for watching. Feel free to ask your questions in the comments down below. Have a beautiful morning, noon or evening, enjoy your life, never smoke cigarettes, indulge yourselves and stay cool. CYA!
