Kamry K101 Telescopic Mech-Mod Review

Aug 3, 2013 by 
A straight up mechanical mod has no electronics to fail, no circuit boards, and can fire any cartomizer, clearomizer, or tank that is attached to it. They are simple devices that last forever and cannot be banned by the government because; in its simplest form it is not much more than a flashlight. A mechanical mod should be in the arsenal of every Vaper, even Vapers who use nothing more than cig-a-like batteries and prefilled cartomizers. When all is said and done, a mech-mod and a few batteries will keep you going when all others fail.
Convinced? You should be. The question shouldn’t be whether or not to own a mechanical mod, but rather which one and how many. The nature of my job allows me to use many different e-cigarettes, from simple mods to the most advanced electronic APV’s. For an inexpensive mod I found one that was so inexpensive, yet performed so well that I bought two of them, one to use, one to store “just in case”. I think you’re going to like it.
The Kamry K101 comes in three different colors; blue, purple, and bronze. I decided on two blue ones, for aesthetic reasons only. The purple and bronze colors are also nice, but I’m a ‘blue’ kind of person.
  • 510 Threaded with air holes offer compatibility with flush sitting tanks
  • Lockable fire button
  • Telescopic: Fits 18350, 18500 and 18650 LiMh batteries
  • Beautiful anodized aluminum finish
18350: 99mm/ 3.9 inches tall 
18500: 113mm/ 4.4 inches tall 
18650: 129mm/ 5.0 inches tall 
Base unit without upper tube attached is 64mm/ 2.5 inches. 
Width: 25.5mm/ 1 inch
By looking at the photos you can see that it’s a very modern, but simple design. Like the SMOKTech Magneto mech-mod reviewed yesterday by Tom McBride, the Kamry also sports a bottom-firing button. It’s not a magnetic switch, but it is lockable and it works well.
The Kamry K101 is simply a fully mechanical 510-threaded mod, nothing more and certainly nothing less. It is compatible with ‘most’ 510-threaded cartomizers, and even Vision eGo Clearomizers. The collar on the switch at the bottom can be screwed down to lock the switch and prevent accidental firing. There are multiple vent holes that have been punched into the metal tube for added protection.
