Kanger K-Pin 4 ML Kit Review: Breakdown

Quality

In my experience, Kangertech is a reliable brand for Vaporizers putting out notable units like the TopBox and the Kanger K-Pin is no exception. It’s a standard pen style vaporizer that doesn’t come with any flashy technology and is really great for beginners just looking to fill up and go.

It is a sleek design, though personally, it looks a little plasticky to me and not really to my tastes, but it’s not an unsightly looking unit. The variety of colors means that if you like the design, you’ll find one in a color to suit you. It also comes with a handy, retractable top for hygienic vaping, though I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not this is just a gimmick.

Inside the box, you’ll find a USB charging cable, the kit itself and two of the Kangertech SSOC 0.2ohm coils. These are the standard coils that Kangertech uses and they produce a pretty good cloud and flavor overall, especially from a little kit like this one. Of course, there are no power adjustments with this type of kit. One issue I found is that there’s no way to change the airflow. This could be a real issue for some people, especially when you’re a beginner and might not want such a big hit from your unit.

It’s actually surprising how much cloud the Kanger K-Pin produces, especially when compared to other units of this type. Even with no way of adjusting power settings etc, the clouds produced are pretty big and the flavor is nice too. The Kangertech SSOC coils are pretty good for flavor and cloud as they are standard in all recent Kangertech kits.

Overall, you probably won’t be blown away (pun intended) by the flavor or cloud produced with the Kanger K-Pin, but for the size of the unit, it certainly impressed us.

Design

Versatility

Versatility

Honestly, there’s not much to say about the Kanger K-Pin and versatility. When it comes to kits like this you don’t really need to be thinking about how compatible or customisable they are. You get what you need in the pack. It does the job. But if you want something with more customizability then obviously you wouldn’t be looking at this sort of kit to buy in the first place.

It’s easy to use, suitable for beginners, and has a convenient top-fill so you can just twist off the top, fill with your juice and away you go. The good thing about the Kanger K-Pin is that it does feature a set of 5 LED lights that will gradually go out as your battery life goes down. Not many of these smaller kits allow you to monitor battery life so a feature like this is a welcome change.

Portability

Portability

Well, obviously kits like the Kanger K-Pin are built to be portable. They are small, lightweight and fit easily in your pocket or bag.

The fact that you can monitor the battery life in some way also improves the portability because you know if you need to charge it up before a long journey or not.

It even has that handy twist-down drip-tip for hygienic use after carrying it in fluffy pockets.

Conclusion

If you’re a beginner who’s just starting to use vaporizers then the Kanger K-Pin Kit is going to be something for you to consider. Of course, it’s not going to wow any of the long-time users unless you’re looking for a smaller unit to have on the side. Coming from Kangertech, the K-Pin is a well-built unit that produces great clouds with a good flavor, however, there is just one thing that is a massive issue for me.

You can’t change the airflow. As a beginner, a bigger hit might be too much for some and it just baffles me how a kit that is aimed more towards this market wouldn’t have an adjustable airflow. This issue would be a deal-breaker for me personally and I’d probably be more likely to look at an older Kangertech unit like the Kanger Pangu as a starter kit.

If you already have the K-Pin kit, let us know what you think of it! Did you find there were any problems with the kit? Did you find it as versatile as we did? Make a comment and share your experiences with the community.
