808D Instructions

Thank you for purchasing the Kanger 808D Starter Kit! This is by far the easiest and simplest e-cigarette, with just two parts. A battery and a cartomizer. You just make sure there is e-liquid in your cartomizer, make sure your battery is charged, screw cartomizer into battery and you are off to the races!

The 808D starter kit comes complete with: 

  • Two 280mah lithium ion rechargeable batteries (available in automatic and manual style)
  • Two cartomizers
  • One USB corded charger
  • One AC Charger

Getting Started: 3 Steps

STEP #1: Charge the batteries!

The batteries in your 808D charger come with some battery power from the manufacture, but it is recommended to charge your batteries to full capacity before their first use.


  1. Charge for 4 hours
  2. Remove and use for 15 minutes
  3. Charge for an additional 1 hour

To charge the batteries you can use a standard USB plug from any computer, laptop, PS3, etc. use a wall outlet using the AC adapter. Charge time for a dead battery are approximately 1-2 hours.

NOTE: Not all USB plugs are the same. It is recommend to use only USB ports that are directly connected to the computer and not extension USB ports. The voltage required for the USB charger may not be met by some smaller laptop and extension USB connections.

When charging your battery, simply screw the battery clockwise into the USB charger until the light on the charger changes from green to red and/or the battery light turns on. When the light is red, the battery is charging. The light on the charger will turn green when the battery is fully charged. On some models, the charge indicator light is on the battery, which will light when charging, then turn off when your charge is complete.

Important notes and safety precautions about charging your 510 battery: 

  • DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BATTERIES ON THE CHARGER. Over-tightening the battery in the USB charger can cause the charger or battery to malfunction. Turn the battery slowly only until the light on the battery flashes, or (if your charger has a light) the light turns from green to red.
  • Always plug the USB charger in before the 510 battery. Ensure the light on the USB charger is green before charging the battery.
  • Do not leave a charging battery unattended.
  • Do not leave a charged battery on the charger for an extended period of time

STEP #2: Learn the parts of your 510 electronic cigarette.

510 ecigarette breakdown


The 808D electronic cigarette is in two parts. From the bottom to the top, they are called:

  • The battery. The battery is a 180mah lithium ion rechargeable battery.
  • The cartomizer: The cartomizer contains a heating element that heats up your e-liquid. This heating element (also called a heating coil) is surrounded by a white cotton/polyester filler. When you fill up your cartomizer, the e-liquid absorbs into this filler. When you use your e-cigarette, the heating element draws the e-liquid from the filler and heats it up to produce vapour. Simple and easy!

STEP #3: Fill your 808D electronic cigarette with e-liquid.

There are a number of ways to fill up your 808D cartomizer.

  1. The most common and simplest is to pop off the top rubber mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is rubber, and if you insert a paper clip or something similar into the hole you can gently pop it out. Then just drip e-liquid into the cartomizer -- A dry cartomizer will hold approximately 15 drops -- until the filler is moist like a sponge. A little e-liquid may leak out the bottom near the threads. Just have a paper towel handy to give it a quick wipe when you are done filling. SPECIAL NOTE: If you overfill your cartomizer, you should always blow through your cartomizer (gently) a few times before using. If too much e-liquid is inside, you risk sucking the e-liquid into your mouth which can be nasty! A few gentle blows with a paper towel around the threads and you are good.
  2. Another method of filling up a cartomizer is using a blunt tipped syringe. This method you just take approximately .75ml of e-liquid into your needle and insert the needle into the top of the cartomizer, through the hole in the rubber mouthpiece. Slowly plunge the e-liquid into the cartomizer.
  3. Some people also use cartomizers with drip tips. You just pop off the rubber mouthpiece and insert a drip tip. This method allows you to drip right into the cartomizer without removing anything at all.

A few last tips

Now that your batteries are charged and your 808D is filled with e-liquid, you are ready to vape. Here are several things to keep in mind before you begin:

  1. Cartomizers can sometimes make a popping or cracking sound as you use them. This is completely normal.
  2. Cartomizers will retain the flavour of each e-liquid, so it is recommended to use a different cartomizer with each flavour.
  3. Most people find the most effective way to vape is to take slower and longer draws then you would with a tobacco cigarette.
  4. Some people find taking a short quick 'primer puff' before taking a long draw is beneficial.

Cartomizers are an alternate way to use your electronic cigarette.  They essentially turn your e-cigarette into a two piece unit, by relpacing the cartridge an the atomizer with a single cartomizer.  Instead of filling your cartridge, you fill the cartomizer, which has a heating coil (just like an atomizer) and poly filler (just like a cartridge) buit in.  They work with all 510, EGO, and T-Rex batteries.

Cartomizers are disposable, and generally can be refilled several times before they wear out.  They do not last nearly as long as atomizers.

Here is some more information about different parts of your e-cigarette:

The Battery:

Cleaning your battery:

Over time e-liquid can get trapped into the threads of your battery. Cleaning it is pretty simple to do. I recommend using a Q-Tip and some rubbing alcohol (or vodka) and inserting it into the hole at the top of the battery. Simply spin it over the threads. Repeat until the Q-Tip has no e-liquid residue on it. You can also use paper towel that is twisted up to do the same thing. The 808D batteries are lithium ion and have no memory, so you do not need to completely drain your battery before recharging them. If you are planning on storing them for an extended period of time, you should discharge the batteries to around 50% and store in a cool dark place. To extend the life of your batteries, do not let them fully discharge before recharging. If your 808D battery gets wet, place your battery in a zip lock bag with a cup of rice for 48 hours. The rice will draw the liquid from the battery and dry it. NOTE: Never attempt to charge or use a wet battery. This can cause the battery and/or charger to short.

The 808D batteries have an automatic shutoff after 12 seconds of continuous use. The battery light will blink 5 times indicating the battery automatic shutoff has been activated. After a few seconds your battery will be ready to use again. This is designed to prevent accidental discharge of the battery. When carrying your 510 electronic cigarette, be sure not to store it somewhere where the battery button can be pressed. The atomizer will get very hot if forced on for several seconds and create a lot of heat.

The charger:

The charger is a two piece unit, with an AC adapter as well as a USB adapter. The USB adapter can be used on its own by simply plugging it into a USB port. To charge your 808D batteries with AC power, just plug the USB charger into the USB port on the AC adapter and then plug the AC adapter into any standard wall plug. You can clean your charger threads the same way you do your battery. The spacing is tight between the battery threads and the wall of the charger, so be gentle when cleaning it. Do not leave your charger plugged in when not in use. Do not leave a charging battery unattended.

Frequently asked Questions from Customers:

This is a constantly updating area. As we get questions from customers we will post them here in an attempt to alleviate possible issues with other customers.

Q: How many times can I refill the cartomizer?

On average about 10, but some customer report as long as one month. A good recommendation is to never let the cartomizer get completely dry. Always fill when its about 3/4ths empty. This keeps it from getting too hot and reducing the lifespan.

 Q: Can I clean cartomizers?

A: It is not recommended that you clean your cartomizers. They are considered disposable, and therefore after they start losing their abilities, I recommend just throwing them out. Cartomizers are just a few dollars each, and are much cheaper then alternates like atomizers and clearomizers.

Additional Options and accessories:

Direct Dripping: Direct dripping (Or dripping for short) is an alternate to using a cartridge. Instead of filling your cartomizer with e-liquid, you pop off the rubber mouthpiece off and drip 10-15 drops of e-liquid right into your atomizer.
