Top 5 Mini Mod Vaporizers Buying Guide

Last updated on December 9th, 2019



Box mod vaporizers have become very popular because they deliver exceptional vapor and excellent flavor. They also give vapers the option to set their own wattage and/or voltage, fine-tuning the intensity of their vape. Many even have temperature control (TC) features and adjustable air holes.

Small Box….BIG Vapor!

As weight and portability become a more sought-after feature, mod-style vaporizers are now available in smaller sizes. Better known as “mini mods”, some are so small and lightweight, they can easily and comfortably fit in your pocket or purse.

Ask yourself…Do you really need a big, high watt vape mod?  The fact is that most vapers, even those that buy mods delivering 400 watts, rarely crank it up past the 200 mark! That’s because it doesn’t take much to deliver full flavor and big clouds of vapor.

A well-made, little 25-200 watt box mod is usually priced affordably and can be easy to use.

We tested many models of mini mod vaporizers and found several that meet the criteria of a well-made mod vaporizer at a great price. These include those made for all vaping levels.

Here’s our guide to the five best mini mods along with links to the companies that will guarantee your mod works as it should, or you’ll get a refund.


1-Innokin CoolFire Mini Vape Starter Kit w/ Zenith D22 Tank

Innokin CoolFire Mini Vape Starter Kit


Easy to use, but made to last; in fact, the CoolFire Mini Vape is one of the toughest mods made. As for vapor production, an internal 1300mAh battery gives you big vapor with flavorful hits.

Unlike portable pod vapes, this mini is designed for sub-ohm vaping and the Zenith Tank can hold 3mL of e-juice.

As the name suggests, there’s a heat diffuser inside the coil that cools down your e-liquid as you vape.  

Of course, the Innokin CoolFire has plenty of safety features including Low Voltage/Short Circuit/Atomizer Connection/Over Discharge and Overheat Protection.

Colors available are Black, Purple ,Gold Black, Blue, White/Black.

The Kit includes everything you need including 2 sub ohm coils.

About the Tank:

The 22mm diameter of the tank means it has a nice 3ml capacity for your e-juice. You can adjust the airflow for an even cooler vape by twisting the bottom airslots ring.  What’s nice is that this tank also comes with a 4mm and 5mm Delrin 501 Drip Tip.

Cool Features We Like:

  • Extremely Rugged
  • Powerful Battery
  • 2 Drip Tips


2- VOOPOO Drag Mini 117W Vape Starter Kit w/ Uforce T2 Vape Tank 

VOOPOO Drag Mini 117W in 8 colors

We were really impressed with the beautiful design of the VOOPOO Drag Mini 117W Vape Starter Kit. The unique resign color plate comes in 8 stunning colors. Even the mouthpiece matches.

Size-wise the mod measures 81.5mm by 48.5mm by 25.5mm. That’s 3.20″ tall X 1.90″ wide X .98″ deep. Compared to the SMOK G-PRIV, it’s a bit taller but has a slimmer profile.

The 4400 mAh battery is built into the mod so charging is easy using the USB cable included in the kit.

Unique to the Drag mod is the GENE FIT chip which provides 117 watts of TC capable power. Not only will you get full flavor and big clouds of vapor, when you press the activation button and draw, the delivery is faster than other mods in its class.

The Voopoo Drag Mini Tank

The mod’s Uforce T2tank style is uniquely shaped. It’s wider in the middle – not really an advantage as to how it vapes, but it give the mod a shorter profile.

Two glass tanks are included in the kit which is a plus if you need to clean one. I always do, if I change e-liquid flavor.

There’s a slide top-fill design (which can be a bit stiff to open) and an 8mL maximum juice reservoir. At the bottom of the tank is a triple-slotted airflow dial so you can adjust your vapor draw.

Atomizer Coil Heads

The UFORCE P2 0.4 ohm coil head is pre-installed and can be used for lower wattages of 40-80W. For higher wattages, (65-100W) use the 0.2ohm N3 Triple Mesh Coil included in the kit.

You do have the option to set the mod in different modes which are detailed in the user manual. The most basic, (and easiest mode) is the “FIT” mode. It will intelligently detect the Uforce coil currently installed and it will recommend preset power settings.

Like all the mini mod vaporizers recommended on this page, the UFORCE P2 has many safety features including over-temperature and short-circuit protection.

Best Features Are:

  • Stunning design and color options
  • GENE FIT chip means great power, a no brainer “FIT” mode, and a really fast draw.


3 – Kanger Subox Mini-C

Kanger Subox Mini-C in 3 colors

This little vaporizer, made by reliable vape manufacturer Kanger, is truly a mini mod. Very compact, the Subox Mini-C measures only 3.75″ x 1.5″ x 7/8″ making it travel friendly and very discreet. It’s also economical.

Yes, it is small, but it delivers up to 50 Watts of power and gives you lovely clouds and full flavor.

What I like best is that there’s no complicated coil configuration that has to be adjusted within the display. It’s also why this model is great for beginner vapers who want to try sub ohm vaping.

The Mini-C isn’t fancy. It comes in three basic colors – black, white and stainless steel.

The e-liquid tank has a nice cup design that holds 3.0mls of e-liquid. Adjust your airflow to suit your draw preference with the airflow dial beneath the tank.

There’s not much more to say about this super easy mini mod except that it is priced very affordably. The kit has everything you need to vape, except for the 18650 battery,.. but it’s easy to add it on to your purchase and it’s only $7.95.

Of course, there are built in safety features including short circuit protection and over use protection.

The kit includes the KBOX Mini-C Mod, the Subank Mini-C tank, a 0.5ohm atomizer head, and a USB charger cable.

Best Features Are

  • Small size, big flavor
  • Very easy to use, no dials or buttons to set special modes
  • Great price

4- Eleaf iStick Pico Baby 25

Eleaf iStick Pico Baby 25W in 6 colors

If you’re look for a mini mod vaporizer that has a record for great performance and is reasonably priced, consider the Eleaf iStick Pico Baby 25W. This baby mod doesn’t have as much power as the others I’ve listed so far, – just 25 watts, but it gives me very good vapor and this kit has all the parts you need to vape. That includes the mod, the tank, two .07ohm atomizer coils, the USB charging cable, AND a 1050mAh battery built right into the mod.

If the power is a bit limited, the color choices are not. Choose from Black, Red, Blue, Purple or Silver.

Another excellent choice for beginners, I like the Pico Baby 25 mod because there’s nothing to program and everything is installed. It’s great for travel too because it weighs next to nothing and has a threaded lock system. No chance of accidental firing.

The dimensions are a petite 41mm x 23mm x 58mm (1.61″ x .90 x 2.28). This is actually is the smallest mini mod on our 5 best list.

About the Tank

This kit includes an Eleaf GS Baby vape tank which holds up to 1.8mL of e-liquid. You fill the tank from the bottom, so you have to remove it from the battery and turn it upside down.

As you vape, you can refer to the e-liquid window on the front of the mod which clearly shows you how much juice is left in the tank.

Best Features Are

  • Small size
  • Nice color selection
  • Easy to use
  • Very portable and discreet
  • Low price

5- Vaporesso Swag Starter Kit 

Vaporesso Swag-Halo in 4 colors



Another great mini mod vaporizer is Vaporesso’s Swag. The reason it’s on our list is that Vaporesso’s quality control is excellent and we rarely have issues when testing their products. Not only that; reviews for this mini mod are positive amongst vapers across the web.

Despite the corny name, the Swag has a wattage range that goes from a low of 5W to 80W. It also offers variable TC (temperature control) so there’s no chance your vape will get too hot. Nor will you burn your coils.

80 watts of power also means big clouds for a tiny vaporizer. It also means the battery will hold a charge longer than mods with lower wattages.

Size-wise, the Swag is 75mm x 48mm x 25mm or in inches, 2.9 x 1.88 x .98. It’s small, but it feels solid.

The mod comes in 5 colors – Red, Black, Steel, Blue and Gold.

The Vaporesso Swag kit is complete, except for the battery which you have to purchase separately. That’s one of the downsides with mini mods that have more control features.

That said, the Swag does offer a very large selection of vaping modes. Settings include variable wattage, TC, and Smart Modes – great features for advanced (or more adventurous) vapers. Expect to take a day or two to learn menu operation, but the little OLED display screen is easy to read.

About the Tank and Atomizer Coils

You may not get a battery with the kit, but you will get an extra pyrex glass tube. That’s handy if you break the first one.

The tank fills easily from the top and it has a nice twist off lid. Expect to fill the tank more often than you would with larger tanks since this is a sub ohm vaporizer and the tank only holds 3ml of e-juice.

The Swag tank is known not to leak which is always nice to hear. It has the adjustable airflow dial too.

The kit comes with one .05ohm GT2 Core atomizer installed and you also get an extra coil at .4 ohm.

Best Features Are

  • Very solid and reliable
  • Fills easily
  • Lots of settings available
