Reviewer comments on business characteristics

The Kangertech Dripbox Starter Kit is a set-up that includes a mechanical box with a dripper. The advantage of this set is the device called "bottom feeder" which includes a tank with a capacity of 7ml in the box to mechanically feed the dripper by a pumping system.

This product comes in three colors: white, black or red. Its appearance is sober and the template is compact. It is a low-cost set-up since the set is proposed at less than 40 euros and ready to vaper, until the assembly that is provided with the resistance and the cotton and an additional pre-mounted tray.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

About the boxit is made of anodized aluminum, a very soft and slightly glossy coating that does not mark fingerprints. Its 510 connection is made of stainless steel for better durability with a non-adjustable pin and drilled at its center to circulate the liquid to the dripper.

Although the switch is plastic, it is almost completely integrated into the box and responds perfectly to the requests.

The bottle serving as a reservoir is made of flexible plastic, a material well suited to its function, in which a metal rod is dipped for the supply of the juice to the ato. The system is much more stable than a flexible hose and especially more robust.


Under the box, the choice of the flap to maintain the bottle is certainly convenient but being just maintained by two magnets, there is a risk of losing easily.

On the side of the access to the battery, it is a knurled screw in two parts which closes this opening and also makes contact. Its threading is not always very easy to catch. On the other hand the second part is well thought since it allows to use also nipple batteries thanks to its possibility of adjustment.


On the opposite side of the switch, a large hole in the form of KangerTech logo ensures ventilation of the battery in case of excessive heating.


The atomizer is made of stainless steel, with a matching coating to the box, to be fully fitting. Its size is average and it decomposes into 4 very simple parts: the base, the removable tray, the tank and the top-cap inseparable from the drip-tip.

The tray is screwed perfectly on its base and leaves plenty of room for a double coil assembly. The two studs have only one hole with a diameter of 1.5mm each to fix the legs.


The airholes are quite tall and very wide, with a size of 12mm x 2mm.

The top-cap is in delrin and inseparable from the drip-tip which has a good internal opening of 12mm of diameter.

Pine, as for the box, is not adjustable and is drilled in the center to allow the passage of liquid from the box to the tray.



Mounting Delivered

A suitable set, which is far from artisanal but good ... for the price, this set-up is of quality quite correct.

Reviewer's comments on functional features

The features of the mod are not infinite but rather exclusive, because the box is mechanical, without possibility to vary the power.

It has a full-length metal tube from its 510 connection, which fits into the 7ml bladder. This set, integrated into the bowels of the beautiful, is based on a pressure pumping system that raises the juice from the bottom of the bottle to the pin of the mod to get on the dripper plateau, provided of course, that he also has a pine pierced in the center, as is the case in this kit.

The bottom of the bottle is wedged by a magnetic hatch and on the top, a tip serves as a stopper around the metal rod and seals the system.

Battery side, the opening and closing is done by screwing with a notched edge screw, for a better grip, which is in two parts. The second part is screwed and unscrewed, independently of the first, to allow several things: adjust to the size of the battery, ensure locking by unscrewing and block the maintenance of the first part. Indeed, to take out your battery, it is first necessary to loosen this central piece to be able to handle your screw with notched edge.

Extremely rare thing for a mod mecha, you also have the possibility of recharging your battery via the cable micro usb (provided), by the proper port which is located on one of the sides near the switch.



The functions of the atomizer are also very simple since it is a dripper with a removable and interchangeable tray. Two pre-assembled, identical trays are also provided.

The tray is not drilled, only the connection 510 is, because the base has under its tray a small tank which, once filled, up the liquid up on the tray by the eight holes located around. This system makes it possible to prepare in advance its assembly on the second plate, then to change it simply by screwing and unscrewing but it also makes it possible to assemble the resistances on the pads with an extraordinary freedom of movement.

The holes on both studs (1 positive and 1 negative) are wide enough to use a wire with a maximum diameter of 1.2mm or a double wire of 0.5mm. Beyond, the editing remains perilous.

The tank is equipped with two airholes on each side, which are located on the upper part, just below the top cap and their size gives a very airy aspiration. Of course, they are adjustable.

The drip-tip is inseparable from the top-cap that will not allow you to use another drip tip than the one provided. The top-cap in delrin allows to dissipate the heat appropriately provided not to make montages too low in resistance.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product

The main function of this set-up is the introduction to bottom feeding. This requires especially the two products to have a pierced pin for the exchange of flexible fluid to feed the wick juice by simply pressing the bottle, without the need for an atomizer tank.

For this, you must first fill the bottle. The manipulations are simple. Next, you need to soak your wick and think of flooding the tray to fill the tank below, in the base. This first step is important to create a first priming which will subsequently facilitate the rise of the liquid to the plateau.

The realization of the assembly is done very easily provided to use resistive of a suitable diameter. The tray can be unscrewed to be prepared on a table leaving ample room for installation.

Think about putting up your resistances to have them closer to airholes so that the flavors are better. However, if the resistive value is really too low, you may feel the heat of the coils on your lips since the drip-tip still has an internal opening of 12mm.

For the insertion of the battery, the two-piece knurled screw is very functional but the threading takes sometimes to recover several times. The setting for the size of the battery allows on the one hand to use batteries with nipple and secondly, by unscrewing the central part, not to feed the assembly and thus to inhibit the switch.

The ergonomics are also well adapted, with a limited space requirement for a single 18650 battery and a shape with rounded edges that is very pleasant in hand. The Switch is rather well positioned vertically and on the same side as the atomizer.




A very easy-to-use set-up that suits all vapers who have passed the course of initiation to the vape.

The mood ticket of the reviewer

KangerTech's dripbox BF is a relatively simple set-up that works perfectly well for bottom-feeding. In addition to its beautiful appearance, handling priming can sometimes be tedious at first use. The fluidity of the liquid will also have an impact because the more your liquid will be viscous, the less the rise of juice will be easy.

Box and atomizer can also be used independently. Thus, you will be able to add a new Bottom Feeder dripper to the dripbox or use your KangerTech dripper on another box Bottom Feeder.
Be aware however that the depth of the 510 connection of the box asked me to unscrew the pin of several of my atomizers.

The double coil assembly is easy to perform on this interchangeable plate with a slight restriction on the single hole of each stud.

A set of good quality with a very good price / quality ratio for the apprentice squonkers.
