Recommendations for upgrade from Kangertech Kbox mini

Hello, I've been researching for an upgrade to my Kangertech Kbox mini. I can't take the leaking anymore! I've been looking at the Pico but it seems very small and is listed as an upgrade from pen type devices... Can anyone recommend something? I'm not incredibly tech saavy about vapes nor do I see myself becoming so. I like the simplicity of the Kanger but any improvement on taste and leaking problems would be great.
Thanks! IN advance!

Sounds like you're not wanting an upgrade from the box, but from the tank. Consider the Eleaf Melo 2. Takes Atlantis coils, features top fill.

If you got that Kbox mini in the kit, it's possibly the Subtank mini for tank ?
If so.. mine leaked too, but there seems to be a fix by pushing a small wad of the included cotton down the center of the coil until it lightly fills up the space at the bottom of the coil (where the air comes in). If you put too much, it may restrict airflow more than you would like.. if you dont put enough, it may still leak. Trial and error.
Mine was leak-free like this for 3 or 4 months, but last night I ran the tank near dry for a flavour swap.. it leaked just after. It seems okay again, but time will tell.

I've never used the Melo 2 ... however I have two of the Melo 3 tanks (use the Atlantis / Triton coils as well). They are very good tanks with great air flow, great flavor (coil dependent), and can be used for MTL (Mouth to Lung) or direct lung vape styles.

** Coil Dependent --- The Eleaf EC coils are very air restrictive compared to the Aspire Atlantis and Triton coils. I feel that I get better flavor and vapor production from the Aspire made coils.

I like the Melo 2 twist to fill more than the remove the entire top cap routune, and the air will be closer to the Subtank Mini... I have the Melo 3 Mini, but don't really use it (or any other sub ohm tank) anymore...

Try the Smok Alien kit. It's a great price, great mod and the tank uses premade coils or you can build your own.
I've been researching that kit hard. It looks very promising. Gotta make my decision tonight to get it ordered for the wife BDay week after next.
