The success story Kanger Dripbox 160W starter kit makes two words: “lasts longer.” Just imagine, you have a 7mL tank and another one to replace on the go. You may use it all day long, and it will still work for by the end of the day.

In the beginning, you receive a usual box. When you unpack it, there is a Dripbox 160 mod, a spare tank a USB and Kanger Dripbox coils. But, the box has a secret. You can arrange it as a comfy holder for the mod, looking like a pedestal. Pretty great.

Kanger Dripbox Design

For the first time, the Kanger Dripbox 160 absorbs the attention with its black matte look. The massive size impresses and calls for respect. It makes you think of how much of useful stuff hides inside.

The Dripbox mod sits in hand surprisingly comfortably for its size, and the matte coating saves from casual fingerprints, that make that greasy ugly look.

You can see everything yourself as you get your Kanger Dripbox 160W starter kit!

We shall only admit the position of the USB-port that sits under the control buttons and enables charging when the device is standing up. Another unusual move is the presence of airflow vents on sides of the device. They do a pretty good job keeping the Dripbox 160 cool.

You can easily fuel your Kanger 160W Dripbox from the bottom of the mod, covered by a magnetic latch. The same cover hides the chamber for two 18650 batteries. Here you have to watch out! The latch can sometimes fall away as it is a bit loose, but that’s the minor flaw, let’s get back to the merits.

The battery choice was excellent. You have three ways to get ahead with them: charge via USB, via the external charger, or you can easily buy a pair of spare ones right around the corner. Quite handy and comfy for a non-stop vaping party.

More is Less?

With many of the enormous vapes we sacrifice comfort for power and buy them only for use in restricted areas. It’s not the case with Kangertech Dripbox 160W. The dimensions reach 84 mm x 60 mm x 40 mm and with all of that the vape feels compact.

Making a place for a 7 mL tank, they managed to reduce the height, by putting a small RDA. And it is comfortable to take the device out.

What Can It Do?

Kangertech Dripbox 160w is much like its predecessor, but way better. To start with, it has a lot of useful upgrades. The extra battery slot lets you vaping without taking the charger from the pocket too often.

As for charging – you need about 3-5 hours. Ah, yeah, they didn’t put the batteries in the starter kit, so you have to buy them additionally.

The maximum wattage is 160W, and you can get it at the resistance of 0.05 ohm for Temp Mode and 0.1 ohms for VW Mode. The kit also features the premade replaceable Dripbox 160 coils and which are made from high-quality materials, like stainless steel, titanium, and nickel.

Three more clicks give access to other mods, and they are Nickel mode, Titanium mode, NiChrome, and Stainless Steel mode. These are set in accordance to coils you are using. You can also change the screen color is you like.

Kangertech Dripbox 160W does a great job producing a lot of vapor, flavorful and thick. As it is a squonking device, you have to push it to vape.

The perfect operation wattage is 50-70W, the system performs well but doesn’t give you too much of the temperature rise.
Huge tank, straightforward control and incredible performance – these are the features of your future vaping life.

Once Again about Merits and Downsides

To make our Kanger Dripbox 160 review complete, let’s go about its strong and week sides once again. It has two large tanks and works long.

Kanger 160w Dripbox utilizes disposable and rebuildable Dripbox 160 coils, and it has a multi-functional interesting carrying box. As for the downsides, we didn’t like the small screen, and there could be more menu options.


If you are a fan of powerful squonking devices and like to have something that can last really on the Kangertech Dripbox 160 is made for you. The company has demonstrated considerable improvement after the previous version and has prepared something exciting to stand out from the noise of the market.
