510 Protank 3 Help Guide
Known for its quality around the world, Kanger Tech tanks are some of the most popular tanks available. Each of the Protank series features glueless construction and a Pyrex glass chamber.
All tanks in this range are fitted with bottom dual coil atomiser heads, which means a smoother, more consistent vape.
The Protank 3 comes supplied with a matching eGo threaded beauty ring to create a seamless look, and is available in very special custom Gunmetal finish.
Replacement dual coils are available in 1.5Ohm and 2.0Ohm resistances, and are compatible with the Evod 2, Protank 3, Mini Protank 3, and the Aero Tank.
The Protank 3 is compatible with our full range of JAC 510 manual and Twist batteries, but is not compatible with our V3i or Vgo2 ranges.
WHAT BATTERIES ARE YOU ABLE TO USE THE PROTANK 3 WITH?
The Protank 3 can be used on any of the JAC 510 batteries. Unfortunately, however, the Protank 3 isn’t compatible with the Vgo2 or V3i batteries.
ARE THERE ANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE 1.5OHM RESISTANCE AND 2.0OHM RESISTANCE WICK AND COILS?
The low resistance coil (1.5Ohm) will produce more vapour and provide a bigger throat hit than the higher resistance coils. Although the low resistance coils give you the benefit of better throat hit and vapour, they can effect the taste of the e-liquid. The Protank 3 uses a dual-coil. This means that there are two separate coils fitted on the same atomiser head. Due to there being two coils, a greater volume of vapour is produced as well as a smoother vaping experience.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROTANK 3 LAST FOR? WHEN WILL I KNOW TO REPLACE IT?
The coil within the tank will last for close to 10 refills. When using VG e-liquid, however, this figure can drop due to the thickness of the liquid.
HOW DOESN’T THE E-LIQUID LEAK OUT THE TANK ONCE FILLED?
The tanks have built in seals which prevents them from leaking.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO WASH THE TANK WHEN I AM CHANGING E-LIQUID FLAVOUR?
Yes, you can do this, below shows you how to...
- Clear the tank of any excess e-liquid. It’s recommend to wear gloves while doing this, as it will prevent the e-liquid having any prolonged contact with the skin.
- Unscrew the tank and disassemble. Make sure to remove the wick and coil.
- Rise out the components of the tank, ensuring to clear all e-liquid. It is important to not use any hot water or soap when washing the tank, as this can damage the tank and reduce life span.
- Leave the components to fully air-dry. This is particularly important, as any excess water left in the tank can cause damage if vaporised.
- Reassemble the tank and then refill. Remember to give the e-liquid around 30 minutes to soak into the wicking.
The PT3 V1 coils which can be used with this tank feature a rubber chimney cap mounted half way up the unit. This seal is essential in order to prevent leakage and should not be removed.
Please note: The Protank 3 is supplied with 2x coils, but will not arrive with one pre-fitted. Please ensure you fit a coil in the tank before using it.
MY PROTANK 3 IS LEAKING
When leaking from the base:
Make sure all of the tanks components are screwed in tightly and that you haven’t accidentally cross threaded the tank.
Check that you are using the correct coil that fits the Protank 3. As some coils are only compatible with certain tank, this is important to check. If in doubt, contact customer service.
Have a look to see if the tank has been overfilled. Also check to see if there is any e-liquid in the centre pipe. If so, simply blow through the tank to clear out the excess.
Check to make sure the centre post in the tank is aligned properly, and is not sitting squint. If not sitting right, it can cause leaking. Make sure that the tank hasn’t been physically damaged also.
If, after checking the above, you are still experiencing leakage, you should try changing the coil. Coils will typically last for around 10 fills before needing to be replaced. As they age, however, problems like leakage are more likely to appear.
If you are still having trouble, and your tank is still within 2 weeks of purchase, contact customer service.
When leaking from the window:
Check that the tank hasn’t been damaged.
If the problem continues, contact customer service.
When leaking from the mouth piece:
Double check the above steps on leaking from the base of the tank.
Make sure that the tank hasn’t been left upside down or horizontally for a long time, as this can cause e-liquid to leak. Simply blowing through the tank, however, can clear all of this out.
If you are taking consecutive long and deep drags, this can on occasion draw too much e-liquid into the atomising chamber. When this happens, not all of the e-liquid can be vaporised and some then comes up the centre pipe.
If the issue continues within the first two weeks of purchase, contact customer service.
It is important to note as well, that all tanks can see a build up of condensation at some point. This occurs from the user's expelled breath and vapour produced from the tank. This then builds up in the mouthpiece. If you are experiencing any leaking from the mouthpiece, take this off the tank and use some paper towel to wipe away any excess.
THE E-LIQUID HAS A BURNT TASTE
With VV batteries, the voltage can have an effect on the flavour. Try to keep the voltage on 4.2v or below, as this will prevent the e-liquid from burning.
If the power setting is fine, have a look at the tank’s coil, in case this is at the end of it’s life span. These coils last for around 10 re-fills before needing to be replaced. If you have filled the tank more than 10 times, the coil will most likely need replacing.
If the issue persists, please contact customer service.
HOW IS THE COIL REPLACED IN THE TANK?
To replace the coil, simply unscrew the base of the tank and unscrew the old coil. Replace this with your new one, re-fill the tank and leave for 30 minutes to allow the e-liquid to soak in. After this, you are ready to vape and enjoy.
THERE ISN’T ANY VAPOUR FROM MY TANK
Check to see what the age of the coil is, and when it was last replaced. We expect these to last for roughly 10 re-fills each, before needing to be replaced. If you haven’t tried replacing the coil, we recommend to try this as it should bring back the expected performance.
If the above doesn’t solve the problem, contact customer service.
