The Kanger Subox is a huge advancement in battery mods, allowing you to use your own 18650 battery to change on the go.

With SubTank atomizers painted to match the batteries, the aluminum exterior, stronger and increased battery life, short circuit/atomizer protection and sub-ohm options make this the prefect mod. Variable voltage and variable wattage are standard features on this 50W powerhouse.

Using Your Subox

A: Kanger has expanded the functions of the Subox, providing more options but also making Subox extremely simple to use. We highly recommend referring to the full instructions located on the ‘User Guide’ tab, but here is a quick rundown on using the Subox:

Charge the Subox – The 2500mAh battery is quite large so this could take a few hours the first time, but subsequent charges should not take longer than 60-90 minutes.

The Subox battery has a tri-color LED on the top that indicates battery life remaining:

Green = Almost fully Charged. When the Kanger Subox is fully recharged the top LED light will power off
Yellow = Half Power
Red = Low Power Charge the Subox.

Attach Atomizer The Subox does not include an atomizer tank; you must provide your own. VapeWorld Carries SubTanks from KangerTeck that work perfectly with the Subox. The Subox accepts tanks with 510 threading and also includes an eGo-style adapter.

Power up and draw – Press the power button three times to unlock. There are two buttons that allow you to alter voltagea and wattage. Set to your desired setting for your material and when correct, push the main button to activate the atomizer.

A: The Subox heats up in roughly ~1 second.
A:Press and hold the “+” button along with the power button for one second to enter variable wattage mode. While in VW mode, press the + or – buttons once and then press again increase or decrease the wattage. Subox can be adjusted from 6.0 to 40 watts in .5watt increments. Press the power button to lock the setting.

To enter variable voltage(VV) mode, press and hold the Press and hold the “-” button along with the power button for one second to enter variable voltage mode. While in VV mode, press the + or – buttons once and then press again increase or decrease the wattage. Subox can be adjusted from 3.0 to 9.0 watts in .1 volt increments. Press the power button to lock the setting.

A: Since the Subox does such a strong job of short circuit/atomizer protection, it protects the Kanger Subox against shorted atomizers and will stop the unit from functioning in unsafe conditions. The only remaining factor in vapor quality would be your choice of liquid.
A: The Subox was designed solely for liquids and tanks designed for concentrates. Using aromatic blends with the Subox will likely ruin your device and void your warranty.
A: Yes, the charger is rated for 100-240V. USB power is available everywhere in the world, or you may need an outlet adapter for locations outside of North America.
A: Adjust your voltage and wattage as needed to tweak the vapor quality.
A: The Subox is made from extruded and billet aluminum, with high quality li-ion batteries.
A: The Subox does not come with an atomizer. It is a box mod battery only.
A: Short Circuit/Atomizer Protection protects the Kanger Subox against shorted atomizers and will stop the unit from functioning in unsafe conditions.

The Kanger Subox features automatic real-time atomizer Ohms detection. If the resistance of the atomizer is lower than 0.4 the Ohms bar will blink and the Subox will not power on.

A: 3/4 full should be fine, completely full isn’t recommended.
A: Yes, after 15 seconds of use, the Subox will power off.

There is also a safety on the power switch, clicking it three times turns off the power button, and repeating this turns the button back on. This is great if you have the Subox in your purse, or pocket, as it prevents it from going off accidentally and wasting your battery or worse.

As a general safety rule, do not leave the Subox unattended while powered on.

A: The Subox uses no screens.
A: The battery is 2500mAh Li-Ion and is not replaceable.
A: The charger that comes with the Subox is USB, and will work in any powered USB port in the world.
A: When the Subox Battery is in need of a charge, the LED indicator will turn red continue blinking when the battery capacity is lower than 3.3V and the Kanger Subox will automatically power off.

At this time, remove the atomizer and connect the Subox Battery to the Subox wired USB charger (at the base of the Subox).

A: According to Kanger, allow 3-4 hours charging time for the first 3-4 cycles. Then, it should only take roughly 1-2 hours to charge.

Cleaning & Maintenance

A: Avoid extreme temps as they may accelerate battery depletion. Never bring your Subox near water.

The draw stem can be cleaned with the brush, or soaked in isopropyl alcohol until the buildup dissolves.

A: Check your heating chamber as often as possible, and clean as needed.
A: We don’t recommend any liquids coming near or in contact with the Subox.

If you need to clean the outside of the Subox, use a warm barely damp cloth. If the Subox gets wet in any way, allow to dry in the sun or a warm dry area until COMPLETELY DRY. Attempting to use the Subox if wet will cause serious damage to the unit.

Need Assistance with your Subox?

Try these Solutions to common issues:

A: A few things could be causing this. Is the 3-click safety lock in place? Try clicking your Subox button three times and see if anything happens.

Are you getting any light at all from the button or the LED on the top? If not, make sure that the Kanger is charged properly.

If you have charged the Subox fully, unlocked the power button and are still getting no vapors, feel for any warmth at all, and if you feel nothing, please contact us.

A: Make sure your Subox is fully charged, and the atomizer coil is screwed on fully and loaded properly (not overloaded).
A: The atomizers will last 4-5 weeks with normal use, although your experience will vary. Replace your atomizer when you feel it needs it. A change in aroma will be your first indicator the atomizer has died.
