Aesthetics and Ergonomics

The U-Boat comes in a plastic case and it is obvious why it's named the U-Boat as it is shaped like a submarine. The device only comes in black which makes sense being called the U-Boat but maybe a second colour option of Gun Metal would of been good. Kangertech have got the ergonomics spot on with the submarine shape, the battery also has a fine textured finish so has nice grip. The front has an operation LED towards the bottom, and above this barely visible we have "UBOAT" etched on, the back of the device towards the bottom also barely visible we have the manufacturers logo and "KANGERTECH" etched on. The pod which is also the mouthpiece attaches to the top of the device and follows the submarine shape seamlessly, it also is black tinted giving a completely Black finish to the device. The bottom of the device has 2 contacts for charging and doesn't have a micro USB port. The device is entirely plastic but the build quality is good.


Specs and Features:

Uboat Pod Size: 38 x 22 x 15mm Capacity: 2ml Coil: ceramic 1.5ohm


Uboat battery

Size: 22mm x 61mm x 15mm Battery capacity: 550mAh Output voltage: 3.7V Coil resistance: ≥1.5ohm Charging: DC 5V/200mA Compact closed system vape device Smart air-control Leakproof design USB charging Colour: Black


The first thing to point out is the pod is refillable but the coil is not replaceable. The pod has 2 contacts at the bottom and centrally a hole that goes from the base right through to the top which you draw from. To one side at the bottom there is a little blue bung which can be pulled out to fill the pod with 2ml of liquid. The bung is small and could easily be dropped but Kangertech supply 5 spares so not an issue. There are a couple of issues though, first the fill hole is tiny, to fill with no problems you will need to do so via a needle nosed bottle so the inclusion of one would of been preferable. The main issue is the tinted colour of the pod making it very difficult to see the juice level and i mean very difficult, i understand why they wanted the pod so black for aesthetic reasons but that being the case there should be a clear line running vertically down the pod to see the juice level. I also would of liked to of seen 2 pods included but the device is not expensive and the pods can be bought in packs of 3 at a reasonable price.

Performance

There are cons with this device as i have mentioned but when it comes to performance i can't fault it. The flavour is at least as good as with the Exceed Edge which i reviewed not long ago, the 1.5ohm ceramic coil inside the pod is excellent, and gives even a tighter MTL drawer than the S8. Also the ergonomics and feel in the mouth when vaping is great. The device gives a constant output of 3.7v so the vape is a consistent 9w throughout so it's another device ideal for high nicotine and nic salts also the 3.7v with the 1.5 coil gives very good battery life. The device is 2A charging and as already mentioned charges in just 30 minutes.


Conclusion

A great device for a starter or a tight MTL vaper who wants something convenient but also delivers great flavour. It is also ideal for high nicotine and nic salts and very ergonomically friendly. Beware though, you need good lighting to see your juice level and i strongly advise using a needle nose bottle for applying your liquid or it will get messy.
