Kangertech KBOX 160 Review

The KBOX 160 has a wattage range of 7 – 160 watts that you can adjust in 0.1 watt increments. In temperature control mode the ranges are 200° F – 600° F and 100° C – 315° C with adjustments in single degree increments.

Two 18650 batteries (not included) power the KBOX 160 and you can charge them while they’re in the mod via the micro USB on the front of the device. Kangertech does not include a charging cable.

There are three buttons on the front of the KBOX 160, the fire button and the “+” and “-” buttons. You turn the mod on and off with five clicks of the fire button. The “+” and “-” buttons aren’t marked, the top one is “+” and the bottom is “-”.

Attach a tank to the KBOX 160 on the spring loaded 510 connector. If it’s the first time you’ve used that coil on the mod you’ll prompted via the LCD display to choose if the coil is new or not. Choosing “yes” will calibrate the resistance. If you don’t get that prompt and it’s the first time you’ve attached this particular coil to the mod, take the tank off, hold in the fire button until the display reads “Check Atomizer” and then put the tank back on the mod.

Click the fire button three times to cycle through the mode options; temperature control using a Nickel coil, Titanium coil, Nichrome coil or Stainless Steel coil, or variable wattage mode. Then adjust temperature or wattage using the “+” and “-” buttons.

Flip the display by 180° by holding in the “+” and “-” buttons. You can also change the backlight of the display by pressing the fire and “+” buttons simultaneously. And you can lock or unlock your settings by holding all three buttons in at the same time.

The display will show a battery meter, resistance, maximum wattage (160 watts), temperature setting and the type of coil you’ve selected in temperature control mode. In variable wattage mode the LCD displays the battery meter, resistance, volts and your selected wattage.
