With many e-cig manufacturers releasing many new vaping devices, from entry-level starter kits to advanced high wattage TC mods, we wanted to do a comparison between the similar vaping set-ups from two popular e-cigarette brands to help you decide which is for you. In this post, we will focus on Kanger Subox mini and Aspire Odyssey mini.
The Odyssey mini kit is the latest starter kit from Aspsire; a more compatible version than its original Odyssey full kit, made up of the triton 2 mini tank and the Pegasus mini mod. Currently, it is only available for pre-order.
While the Kanger Subox mini has been on the market for some time, which is comprised of a Subtank mini tank and Kbox mini mod, it has been well-received for its quality and affordable price among vapers.
What they have in common!
As both are scaled-down versions of their originals, the Aspire Odyssey mini and Kanger Subox mini both support a maximum wattage output of 50W. When it comes to design, they both come with a sleek, slender shape & compact size, fitting nicely in your hand. They both feature a big fire button, a brilliant LED display screen, two small setting buttons and a micro-USB charging port lining up on one side of the mod. They even adopt 510 threading and run on a single rechargeable 18650 battery.
How are they different?
First is the obvious, the color. The Subox mini comes in two basic colors: black & white; whilst the Odyssey mini will be available in black, silver and gold. Which is better? The answer just depends on your color preference. Then there is the tank capacity. The Subtank mini can hold 4.5ml e-liquid whereas the Triton 2 mini tank supports 2ml e-juice capacity. At this point, the Subox mini wins for most people, since they seem prefer to larger capacity tank.
Next, the coils. The Subox mini kit comes with a chimney style vertical coil, available in 0.5 or 1.5ohm resistances; it also supports a RBA coil head, so if you are coil-rebuilders, you will definitely love the greatly improved RBA base which features more room to build and larger wicking holes. As for the Odyssey mini kit, it features the TC (temp control) function and a really versatile tank that is compatible with a wide range of coils including a pre-installed 1.8ohm Clapton coil, a 1.2ohm traditional kanthal BVC coil and a 0.15ohm Ni200 coil. The Pegasus mini mod can fire the atomizers from 0.1ohm to 3ohm in VW mode, and from 0.2ohm to 3ohm in TC mode. What’s more, all Triton mini coils are compatible with the Aspire Nautilus and Nautilus mini replacement atomizers. Apparently, Odyssey mini kits are far better than the Subox mini in regards to the choice of coils, however Subox mini kit allows users to rebuild their own coils while Odyssey mini doesn’t. So in this contest, shall we call it a tie?
Another is the e-liquid filling. Odyssey mini kit supports top filling, which is quite easy and convenient to use. In contrast; Subox mini kit adopts bottom filling, which needs you to screw off the tank when refilling. They both are common ways of refilling in the current market. Personally, I prefer top filling. But if you don’t care too much, bottom filling is not that annoying.
The last thing I’m gonna highlight is the all-important price tag. The Kanger Subox mini kit is US$77.5 for both colors; while the Aspire Odyssey mini kit is priced at US$80 for the silver version, US$82 for black and US$90 for the gold. There is no doubt that the former totally beats the later on price. BTW, you can also get 8% off all of these kits with our coupon code: AHGEVAPE
To sum up, they are both good mini kits, suitable for intermediate users or beginners who want to try sub-ohm vaping. But if you like the handy temperature control function and don’t mind 2ml e-liquid capacity, then you can try the new Aspire Odyssey mini; if you like RBA atomizer and don’t care too much about TC, the Kanger Subox mini is absolutely the better choice, after all, it is available at a more affordable price and well-reputed on the market. Let us know which one you chose!
