The Kanger Evod battery is Kanger’s version of the standard eGo style battery, which is the most popular e-Cigarette battery style. This battery is able to be used with any atomizer utilizing eGo or 510 threading.

This review is for the Kanger Evod and Evod VV (variable voltage) battery.

One is able to purchase Evod batteries by themselves, but they are most often sold as part of the Evod Starter Kit.

The functions on the Evod battery include on/off protection and an LED backlit on/off button. The few things that set the Evod battery apart from other eGo style batteries is the use a metal on/off button, a non-standard placement of the button, and Evod labeling at the bottom of the battery. This battery comes in two sizes, 650 and 1000mAh. Both of these sizes are reviewed here.

The colors available for this battery are:

  • Glossy Purple
  • Rubberized Black
  • Rubberized Blue
  • Rubberized Red
  • Rubberized Yellow
  • Rubberized Green
  • Rubberized Pink
  • Stainless Steel

I'm researching the complaints about this battery from Kranger Tech. The Evod Battery.

In the last 12 weeks, I've gone through 8 of these batteries. 7 of them failed after 2-3 recharges. Stopped working completely, the batteries either did not charge at all on receiving them or stopped charging after 2-3 uses. 1 battery has failed completely and doesn't even accept a charge. (Evod Twist)

The batteries look good, when working last 2-3 days (1000mAH) for 6-8 hours per day.
The apparent build looks nice and the colours are fine.

But the quality.. the lifetime.. Seriously needs some work. The retailer I got these from claims "it's just a bad batch" but returning 2 batteries every week to a fortnight at £2.99 in postage on top of the £19.99 original cost isn't acceptable.

I don't expect a battery to last a year, but it would be nice if it lasted a few months at least before failing.

This is what most people I know start out with. It tends to be cheap (the standard starter kit is somewhere around 40-50 bucks, and it comes with two), and they're well built, not too durable, but well built. They look really good, they're pretty sleek and the colors are nice and deep. They're great for beginners because they're simple to use and cheap, and they last as long as you would expect them to last for 650mah. I don't think there is a better starter battery, and being so cheap, they make a decent back up too.

My Mini Protank kit from (Edit: Web address removed by moderator) included two of these in stainless steel.

Right off the bat, they're gorgeous! Very sleek, very sexy, yet very simple. I went with the aforementioned kit because of the dual batteries... but honestly, I've never even finished one off yet! You get some great time off of each of these, and when paired with a great clearo/atty such as a Mini Protank or what have you, you end up with a beautiful vape-setup.

One great advantage of these batteries is that they're eGo threaded and 510 threaded! This means one day you could be rocking a Protank... and the next day, an iClear 30. Versatility is key when it comes to a great vape experience.

Likewise, 650mAh is a great size. You can vape it at home, but also vape it on the go! Sliding one into my pocket is no problem, and can even fit one in an Altoids can for those necessary stealth-carrying occasions.

In the end, it's not the end-all to batteries, but it's a great one, especially if you're just starting out.

This 650mah should be the gold standard for those who are looking to vape but don't want to deal with variable voltage. It's compact, slick, and lasts for hours. The recessed button is a great look and, with the Evod clearomizer, is hardly larger than a sharpie. Whether you are just starting out or a veteran vaper looking for a solid battery, this is the battery for you.

If you are just getting into e-cigs, or are trying to replace a blue or something of the liking, this is a great battery to get! It is very affordable and looks clean and nice. The button is smooth to the battery so it sometimes can be hard to click all the way, but other than that this battery is my favorite non-mod non-variablevoltage battery!
