Exploring the World of Mini Vapourisers

Posted on August 16, 2016 by Paul McNamara

As the stealth style of vaping continues to gain ground, more and more of the leading e cigarette companies are producing miniature portable vapouriser models which are perfect for the user who likes to keep their habits private. This week, we take a look at the mini vaporiser phenomenon, and explore how they measure up both literally and figuratively to their full sized counterparts.

Mini Vapourisers


The biggest advantage of mini vapourisers is how easy they are to take on the road. With most mini mods being less than 10cm in length and small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, they easily fit into a pocket, purse or briefcase. The 75W Eleaf Istick Pico TC Mod for example, is just 45mm wide and 70.5mm long, so small enough to fit in your coat pocket without creating a bulge.


Whilst most mini mods have a reduced e juice capacity due to their more compact size, they are surprisingly comparable to standard mods when it comes to power and performance. Designs like the Tesla Stealth Mod come with 2200 mAh Li Po battery power and 100W capacity, which is more juice than most vapers need. Mini mods do tend to have less functions than some of their standard counterparts, but this may suit users who like to stick to one function per device anyway.


Most mini mods on the market are scaled down and simplified versions of a standard design, so they can actually be more aesthetically pleasing than the original. Devices like the Vaporesso Target Mini Mod are a perfect example of this, as the sleek scaled down design makes the original target mod look awkward and gangly by comparison.

Mini but mighty, these scaled down designs can still pack quite a punch when it comes to throat hit, and their size really has no bearing on the quality of the vaping experience. If anything, the mini design makes it easier to relax and enjoy you vape breaks in peace. 

In the world of vaping, bigger doesn’t necessarily always mean better and the mini mod trend stands testament to this. These devices are ideal for a private user who doesn’t have much call to switch up functions and likes to keep their vape style simple.
