What I want to talk about today is a device I purchased a few weeks ago in
a Co-Op…..the K101 by Kamry.
This device is China’s answer to the well known Empire mod.
-The K101 telescopes to fit a whole line up of different battery
configurations (like the Empire),
-It has a locking ring and a bottom button (like the Empire),
-It has a native 510/eGo cone threading (unlike the Empire which has a
native 901) -There is a floating center pin and proper airflow channels to
flush mount anything and still get airflow.(Not sure if Empire has that
feature or not)
-It wont break the bank and it’s very easy to get (Unlike the Empire).
It costs around $20-$30 depending on who you buy it from, and almost any
vendor who sells big battery mods is carrying this one.
Now let’s talk build quality.
For what I paid for it the K101 has impressed me, it’s a solid device, so
much so that it has become my at work vape because I feel it can handle all
the abuse I put on most things I own, especially being a contractor.
My only thing I will mention is that the threads could be smoother.
Ill give the build quality a 4 out of 5
The finish is descent at best, it looks great out of the box, but give it a
day and it will be scratched like crazy.
The telescopic sleeve is anodized aluminum (which is already rubbing off)
and the rest seems to be some sort of a polished finish, which over the
course of these past few weeks, due to the threads on the aluminum sleeve
it is now a brushed finish. none of that bothers me though, it is just
something to keep in mind.
Ill give the finish a 2.5 out of 5.
Performance wise….well it performs like a mechanical mod. Meaning there
is no regulation, whatever your battery charge level is at, is the voltage
Unless you are using a kick, then it performs how a kick would perform.
I can’t give this one an accurate rating on performance since it is a
mechanical and its performance is 100% dependent on you and your setup.
To wrap up, I like this device, I think it is perfect for anyone who is
looking to get into mechanical and sub-ohm coils, or someone who wants a
solid little back up mod. The finish may not be top notch but that is
something I can live with.
Hope this helped.
Have a good one guys
