Geekvape have a reputation for solidly built uber-durable kits that can withstand a serious knock and a splash, and the M100 Aegis Mini 2 is no exception.

Whereas other vapes by Geekvape are a little on the bulkier side, such as the L200 Aegis Legend 2, the M100 Aegis Mini 2 sits neatly in the hand and features rounded edges for improved comfort.

Boasting the usual Geekvape IP68 protections, the M100 is shock proof, dust proof and claims to be able to withstand being submerged in water for up to 30 minutes without breaking. Now that’s impressive, and it makes the M100 one of the best small vape mods for the clumsier vapers out there.

With an internal battery capacity of 2500mAh, the M100 is absolutely loaded with power, which is good when you consider the 100W output potential. While the M100 Aegis Mini 2 is perfectly suited to MTL vaping, it’s got more than enough charge to handle all day sub-ohm vaping.

The M100 Aegis Mini 2 is a surprisingly snug mod from Geekvape, and it just goes to show that they’re not a company to be pigeonholed!

Innokin are well known for their simple starter kits which have helped thousands make the move away from smoking, but back in the day they were best known for their sub-ohm tanks like the iSub VE Tank.

Innokin are reminding us all that they’re not just for beginners with the release of the Kroma 217, a fantastic box mod with a number of cool features and battery options that fits snugly in the pocket.

Powered by an external 21700 battery, the Kroma comes with an attachment that allows you to fit 20700 and 18650 batteries as well, giving you the freedom to power your device however you wish.

The Kroma 217 also comes with some interesting modes installed; Coil+ Mode sends a surge of power through your coil after every puff, effectively shaking off the excess juice, whereas Refresh Mode draws new liquid into the coil and prevents flavour from growing stale.

With an ergonomic zinc alloy and chromium build, the Innokin Kroma 217 is a fantastic choice for anyone with several batteries in reach, though it is a little heavier than some other small vape mods.

High Tech Features: ‘Refresh mode’ improves wicking and flavour

The Z80 Mod from Innokin is a seriously robust piece of kit and a bit of a surprise from Innokin, who are best known for their simple starter kits. On closer examination however the Z80 Mod is a fantastic small vape mod with a plethora of on-board features.

Powered by a single external 18650 battery (sold separately), the Z80 was a wattage range of 6-80W, making it perfectly suited to both MTL and DTL vaping. The Z80’s default mode is ‘FØ Mode’, which uses alternating current when you vape to promote longer battery and coil life.

The Z80 also features ‘Refresh Mode’ – previously mentioned with the Kroma 217 – that improves wicking and ensures your vape has the freshest flavour possible. The build design is a little unlike what Innokin have shown us before; the zinc alloy casing also provides excellent grip by way of a suede leather finish, improving on ergonomic comfort.

The Innokin Z80 Mod is one of the best small vape mods available today, and is certain to provide plenty of portable puffage.

Big Display: 0.96’ TFT display screen shows all important specs

The Vaporesso GEN 80 S Mod follows hot on the heels of the original Vaporesso GEN S, shrinking the unit down and opting for one external battery rather than 2 but still providing excellent power output potential.

The GEN 80 S Mod has a wattage range of 5-80W, easily enough for any MTL tank and able to power most – if not all – sub-ohm tanks as well. At only 76g, the GEN 80 S is incredibly lightweight and easily transported.

The battery panel features a coating which promotes an ergonomic grip, and the rounded edges make it comfortably pocket-friendly. The 0.96″ TFT screen is large and displays all relevant information during use, such as wattage, coil resistance and puff timer.

The Vaporesso GEN 80 S is one of the best mini mods for those seeking a no-thrills single battery mod that’s lightweight and gets the job done!

Wattage Adjustment: Change power output with a single button
Rapid Charging: USB Type-C charging
Battery Capacity: 1600mAh surprisingly high for such a snug mod

For years now Aspire’s Zelos range of vape mods and kits have been providing vapers with reliable, comfortable and stylish vaping experiences, and over time the mods have gotten bigger, more powerful and – unfortunately – heavier.

The Zelos Nano Mod is a step back towards a more comfortable and portable style of vape mod. Weighing in at only 64g, the Zelos Nano Mod nonetheless contains a surprisingly large 1600mAh battery, easily enough for all day vaping.

The Zelos Nano Mod is very much an MTL mod, with a maximum wattage output of only 11W, which is certainly powerful enough for most mouth to lung vapers. This relatively low output potential has the benefit of ensuring that the 1600mAh battery easily lasts the whole day.

The Zelos Nano has adjustable power which can be changed with the tap of a single button. It lacks a display screen, however you can track the power output and battery charge with the LED light system.

The Zelos Nano Mod is a comfortable, ergonomic, tastefully understated and one of the best stealth mods available. It’s quite a slim build however, so larger tanks may hang over the edge slightly.

Specifications

  • Dimension: 29.5mm x 21.7mm
  • Weight: 64g
  • Battery capacity: Built-in 1600mAh
  • Wattage: 9-11W
  • Auto wattage detection mode
  • 3 Wattage levels: Low, Mid, High
  • 510 pin connection
  • ASP chipset with safety protection

Contents

  • 1x Aspire Zelos Nano Mod (1600mAh)
  • 1x Type-C Cable
  • 1x User Manual

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Surprisingly good battery
  • Wattage adjustment

Cons

  • No display screen
