Kanger's Mini Protank-3

Mini Protank 3 pieces

The Mini Protank 3, made by Kanger, is a BDC mini clearomizer, and IMHO, may be the best mini tank currently available. In fact I think it’s the second best clearomizer of any kind, mini or not, only below the full sized Nautilus clearo by Aspire. I’ve never owned any of the previous Mini Protanks, but my understanding is that #3 has some significant improvements:
  • Dual coil
  • All parts are replaceable
  • No glue anywhere
  • Removable drip tip
  • Native ego connection

Build quality is excellent, feels like a solid piece of metal and pyrex. The looks are very modern and pleasing. The mini breaks down into five pieces just like the full-size Protank 3, drip tip, top cap with shaft, glass tank, lower hardware which screws onto the shaft holding the glass between them, and the bottom piece where you screw the atty into, has the eGo threads. The tank is bottom filled with ample room around the shaft. It came with two 1.5 ohm atomizers, but it is compatible with any atty made for the regular Protank 3 or Aerotank, which is a nice plus. The glass is also the same 1.5ml pyrex tank used on the Mini Protank 2, so replacement glass in various colors are easily available. Being a mini with e-Go threads it sits flush on my 900mah e-Go batteries, and looks very impressive indeed. On a larger diameter battery, because of the native eGo threads, no beauty ring is needed. The Mini Protank 3 will not work on a battery with only 510 threads, unless you get a 510 to eGo adapter.

Mini Protank 3 Colors

mPT3 Colors

I bought mine from sweet-vapes.com who has them in different colors (I got mine in red), when they first became available for just under $14, but you can currently get a clear only one from 101vape.com for the measly price of $8.99, not bad at all. I’ve already put in an order for a second mPT3.

The performance, is simply magnificent. The flavor is very clean, not at all muted, on par with my Nautilus. I’ve had Kanger’s Protank 3 for almost two weeks now. Vaped many a tank of e-Juice, both 100% VG and various ~50/50 PG/VG ratios. I have not had a single problem; No leaking, dry hits, gurgling, zip. Unlike some other clearos I won’t mention, you can vape it to the last drop; No issues when the juice level goes below 1/3rd tank. The internal hardware may look like a scaled down version of a full Protank 3, but something was improved. Airflow is airy, somewhere between the second and third setting on the Nautilus, closer to the larger hole. If the mPT3 only had airflow control, I think it would surpass the Nautilus. Vapor production needless to say was excellent.

Kanger Mini Protank 3If I had to come up with one negative, and it’s a real small one, the drip tip has some minor play while attached. Mind you, it’s in tight enough, I could lift the clearo & my 1300mah eGo-V V3 Mega by the drip tip with no fear of it coming off. Still, while attached, you can jiggle it around a bit. The supplied drip tip, while beautiful, uses only one o-ring. Another would have helped and I might try that myself. I’ve used other tips on this mini resulting in a much more ridged placement.

In closing, at under 9 bucks, go, nay run, and buy the Kanger Mini Protank 3. You won’t regret it. Happy vaping all.

        Talked to a Kanger rep today, doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing these for sale in the US for 2 to 4 weeks. Bummer.

          Hi There,
          I have the mini Protank 3 and i have been having a few problems with it.
          my glass broke so i bought a new one. The new glass is quite lose on the equipment when i fill it with e-juice it obviously leaks. I was told to get an o ring, will this solve it?

    Don’t mean to bring this post back from the dead, but can you recommend a drip tip for this? The wobble is getting to me.

    I love everything about the Kanger Mini Protank 3 EXCEPT there are only 2 freaking threads to hold the bottom of the atomizer on after filling. If you damage either of those threads – which is really easy to do – you’re SOL. I could have sworn there was a minimum 5 thread requirement for stuff like this. Who needs a tank that can pop off in your pocket. Too bad because everything else about this set up is good.
