Kanger Company does not neglect the market for devices for beginners. Their new creation, K-PIN, is intended for beginners as well as for “mods” – the set looks quite stylish.
The K-PIN Kit consists of a 2000 mAh battery pack and a 2 or 4 ml clearomizer for choice – the first one is intended for Europe due to existing legal restrictions.
Because of the focus on newcomers, experienced K-PIN vapers are unlikely to be interesting. But beginners will find in it simplicity and reliability, as in iJust S , Unimax 25 and other similar sets.
One of the great strengths of a K-PIN is its appearance. The device looks like a standard “pipe-house”, in which the battery pack and clearomizer are made in the same style. The K-PIN draws attention because of the colors – there are black, red, yellow, white and blue options to choose from. The body is made of zinc alloy, but because of the glossy paint it may seem that it is made of plastic. Fortunately, it is not.
The diameter of the K-PIN is 24 mm and its height is 134.5 mm as an assembly. The device weighs 132 g. This makes it compact and convenient to use – the set goes very well in your hand. For inconspicuous use of K-PIN is suitable only with some reservations (the length is too big).
Build a good fashion – nothing rattles and does not hang out.
There is no adjustable frequency and any settings in the K-PIN. This is a simple mod for beginners, so it works on the “click and bet” principle. The soaring power is calculated from the battery charge indicator and the resistance of the installed evaporator. The more charge and less resistance – the higher the power. A full K-PIN with a standard 0.2-ohm evaporator produces approximately 60 watts.
K-PIN supports evaporator resistance from 0.15 ohms. A diameter of 24 mm allows you to install another dripku or clearomizer on the battery pack, including modern wide ones, but they will not look so fashionable on the fashion as “native”.
The K-PIN has a built-in battery with a capacity of 2000 mAh. This is a good value for a device of this class, and the battery can last for a whole day of soaring. It is charged using a USB cable on a standard current of 1 A. For a full charge, it will take about 2 to 4 hours.
The minimum battery voltage is 3.2 V. The K-PIN charge level is indicated by five LEDs that are located on the “body” of the device. If all of them are burning – the battery is 100% full, if one – then the mod is about to discharge.
Standard 510 connector with brass spring-loaded pin.
K-PIN has such a set of protections:
- from short circuit;
- overcharge / overdischarge;
- low / high resistance;
- from evaporator overheating (cutoff at 10th second);
- air vents for removal of gases from the battery.
In the K-PIN set, there is a clearomizer of the same name, created specifically for this kit. It is made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass. The case has a small “window” in which you can observe the level of the liquid. For the rest, the clearomizer has a closed metal case, which is also friendly for beginners – it will be difficult to damage it.
The highlight of the clear is a unique delrin-type drip-type, which extends from the top cover when it is rotated. The manufacturer positions it as a simplification of carrying, as well as a contribution to hygiene – indeed, the “cleaned” mouthpiece will not be in contact with dirt and crumbs in your pocket. However, such a complex design virtually eliminates the possibility of replacement. Therefore, the advantage is controversial. The top cover is collapsible, so you can get the drip-type and rinse. It is also theoretically possible to “pinch” a suitable mouthpiece from another manufacturer, but you will have to make stops and get rid of the connector part so that the extension mechanism can work.
The rest of the K-PIN clearomizer does not stand out among competitors. Its capacity is 4 ml (or 2 ml for Europe), refueling occurs when the top cover is unscrewed. Clear partially collapsible, it can not replace the glass. It is also impossible to change the mouthpiece (regular method).
Clear works on the already-classic Kanger evaporators – SSOCC series. The choice of the bather will be large enough: 0.5, 1.2, 1.5 Ohm nichrome, Clapton Coil 0.5 Ohm cantal, and 0.5 and 0.2 Ohm stainless steel spiral. All of these vaporizers expose well and can produce a lot of steam.
There is no adjustable blow in K-PIN. There are air intakes on the two sides of the clearomizer, but the degree of their opening cannot be changed. As an option – hold your finger.
K-PIN is very easy to manage. To turn the device on and off, press the Fire button five times.

Feedback and experience of use
The K-PIN set received controversial ratings. Of course, the bathers first of all paid attention to the clearomizer with the “telescopic” retractable mouthpiece. From experienced vapers there were jokes like “Ideal – vape with spinner two in one”. Their sarcasm can be understood, since the practical use of such a decision is minimal, but it imposes much more restrictions. Also, the professionals did not like the lack of tightening adjustment.
Newbies accepted K-PIN more favorably. A nice design, a convenient format for using “tucked and betting”, a good build quality have played their part. The mod works on common SSOCC evaporators, which can be bought in any city in all their diversity. With them, the set can “pile” and well reveal the taste.
It is worth mentioning why there are so many discussions around K-PIN. The manufacturer has positioned the device as its “return to the leaders.” The kit should have been a reminder of the strengths of SubTank and show that Kanger can still make fashion. Did it work out for them? It’s hard to say yet, but the first results are disappointing – the public appreciated the efforts, but the retractable mouthpiece laughed at, turning any potential discussion of K-PIN into a competition for jokes about spinners and lipstick. Nevertheless, a decent set, and for a beginner would be quite a good decision.
Supports the concept of “for beginners” and pricing. You can buy the whole set for only 1400 – 2000 rubles. For this price, a set of mod, clearomizer and two evaporators is almost for nothing. In the K-PIN price category, it was possible to reach iJust S, the recognized leader in the “cheap device for beginners” nomination. With all the other advantages, K-PIN is a good claim for success.
