8 Best Small Vapes (Stealth Vape) In 2022

MIST's featured image about the best small vape devices

Vapes come in all shapes and sizes; it’s not all big and bulky mods like the Voopoo Argus GT 2 Kit and the Vaporesso GEN 200 Kit. Sometimes what you’re looking for is something slimline and slinky which slips neatly into the pocket. So today we want to help you determine which are the best small vapes to choose from.

There are any number of reasons why you might want a smaller vape kit; maybe you want a neat little device for travelling and vaping on the go. Perhaps you want something that fits in when you step outside the bar to join the smokers. Or maybe you’re simply looking for the best stealth vape for when you want a cheeky puff without drawing the kind of attention a big ol’ fistful of mod will attract.

And The Winner Is…

Each of these vapes is extremely portable and easy to travel with, discreet devices which are convenient to use and comfortable in the hand. But which is today’s champion? While every device featured is great in some way, today’s ultimate winner is…The SMOK RPM 5!

One of the best tanks for flavour, the Voopoo TPP-X Tank in black

The RPM 5 takes all the design features of the previous RPM units and improves on them across the board, resulting in a high-powered vape with a large battery, great wattage range and several usability improvements that still somehow manages to sit comfortably in the hand! For this reason, the RPM 5 is crowned the best small vape and we’re excited to see what SMOK have in store for us in the future!

Read on below for our roundup of the best small vape pens! Each of these devices will have something special that makes them stand above the rest. Although it may be better to say they stand apart, as none of these vapes are going to be particularly tall in stature!

  1. SMOK RPM 5
  2. Elf Bar Lost Mary BM600
  3. Geekvape Aegis 1FC

Elf Bar Flavour: Unmistakable Elf Bar zest in every unit
Fun Fistful: New design fits comfortably in the hand
Long Lasting: 550mAh and average of 600 puffs

Elf Bar’s reputation as the absolute kings of disposable vape pens is set in stone with the release of their latest disposable, the Lost Mary BM600 Nic Salt Disposable Vape!

Elf Bar have clearly spent a while trying to decide how you improve on perfection, and the resulting Lost Mary disposable just showcases how far they’ve come in terms of design expertise.

The Lost Mary BM600 now features a stylish box design, rather unorthodox for a disposable – which usually come in ‘pen’ designs – however it features soft rounded edges and sits very comfortably in the pocket or purse. While a little bulkier than before, it’s still extremely travel-friendly and provides a greater degree of grip than any previous Elf Bar iteration.

The Lost Mary BM600 houses a generous 550mAh battery, easily enough to last all day and boasting an average of 600 puffs before it runs out of charge.

The Lost Mary BM600 now features a low-profile mouthpiece with a slightly wider design than before. The nicotine salt e-liquid inside ensures that even when taking wider draws, the inhalation is as smooth and satisfying as ever.

You have a fantastic range of 12 flavours to choose from, ranging from Cotton Candy Ice to the energy drink-esque Marybull Ice, and for those not so into ice there are traditional flavours like Pink Lemonade and Blueberry to choose from!

The Lost Mary BM600 Nic Salt Disposable Vape is Elf Bar’s greatest creation yet, and we cannot wait to see what these disposable daimyos have in store for us in the future!

Specifications

  • Up to 600 puffs
  • 550mAh built-in battery

Power: Three distinct MTL power levels to choose from
Airflow: S-shape airflow results in smoother inhales

Geekvape continue to build upon their burgeoning pod-vape empire following on from the successes of the Wenax K1 and the Wenax S-C with the release of the Aegis 1FC, a small and ergonomic pod vape with a stunningly fast charging time!

The Aegis 1FC has an internal battery capacity of 550mAh, generally enough for a full day of vaping, but even in those nightmare scenarios where you forget to charge it up there’s no need to worry; the Aegis 1FC charges from empty to full in just fifteen minutes! Now that’s rapid relief!

The 1FC uses disposable coils for a more streamlined experience, available in both 0.8ohms and 1.2ohms, so while you get some power variation – particularly thanks to the 3 distinct power levels you can switch between – it’s very much an MTL device.

The Aegis 1FC does feature a firing button, however if you prefer you can use the auto-draw functionality to simply puff to vape!

Geekvape have done it again, and the Aegis 1FC stands proudly in their growing roster of small, ergonomic vapes you can use on the move!

Power: Definitively sub-ohm device in the form of a small pod k

The Nord 4 is the latest iteration in SMOK’s massively popular Nord series, which has almost single-handedly revolutionised how we look at pod vape systems. Whereas most of the previous Nord kits leaned a little more in the MTL direction, the Nord 4 is absolutely a cloud-chasing machine, just in a portable size!

The SMOK Nord 4 has a battery capacity of 2000mAh; easily enough for a day of intense vaping! The unit has a small display screen on the side along with two control buttons that allow you to fully explore the Nord 4’s impressive 1-80W range.

The Nord 4 comes with two coils, one registering at 0.4ohms and the other at a stunning 0.16ohms, so both are perfectly suited to big cloud production.

The SMOK Nord 4 is the best small vape pen for the sub-ohm cloud chasers out there who want something a little more discreet and portable than sub-ohm usually appear.

Features We Love

Battery Life: 1500mAh battery easily enough to last a full day of MTL session vaping
Anti-Leak: Anti-leaking technology built into pods
Range of Coils: Decent range of coils to utilise the units 40W max output

Vaporesso first came to our attention years ago with the release of the excellent Tarot Nano kit, and to this day the VECO and NRG tanks are providing vapers all over the word with fine flavoured satisfaction!

The GTX GO 40 is a little different from all that; a neat, tidy and eminently pocketable pod kit that’s small enough to take anywhere and powerful enough to last a full day and then some! The Vaporesso GTX GO 40 features an internal battery capacity of 1500mAh, a frankly stunning amount of power for such a small and discreet AIO vape! 1500mAh is EASILY enough charge to get you through the day, even if you tend to chain vape.

The GTX GO 40 also features a newly designed pod by Vaporesso which is built with anti-leaking technology to prevent any unpleasant messes which occur now and then in vaping.

The GTX GO 40 doesn’t feature adjustable wattage, but will instead alter it’s vapour output depending on the ohmage of coil installed, with a maximum power output of 40W, hence the name! The coils are available in ohmages ranging from 1.2ohms to 0.3ohms, so you’re getting the whole gamut of MTL, RDL and DTL functionality.

The device also features adjustable airflow, so you get full control over how tight/cloudy your draw will be. 1500mAh of power and versatile function for less than £20 is certainly worth a GO!

  • Built-in 1500mAh battery
  • SSS Leak-Resistant Technology
  • Adjustable airflow
  • 40w maximum output

Elf Bar are one of the biggest and most renowned manufacturers of disposable vapes, known far and wide for their remarkably intense flavours and satisfying strength.

Elf Bar are ready to prove they’ve got what it takes to roll with the big vape companies and FB1000 Pod Kit is all the proof needed to demonstrate that Elf Bar are not to be pigeonholed! The FB1000 has an internal battery capacity of 1000mAh, larger than any of their disposables and easily recharged thanks to the included USB-C cable you get with the kit.

The pod itself is rather reminiscent of Voopoo’s PNP and TPP pod models, attaching to the unit via strong magnets which eschew the need for awkward unscrewings. The FB1000 has optional auto-draw, meaning you don’t have to press the button to fire it; you can simply puff and you’re away!

The FB1000 Pod Kit is a fantastic first foray into refillable vapes by Elf Bar, and we’re very excited to see what they release next!

Easy to Grip: Eye-catching diamond pattern also aids grip of unit
Lightweight: Extremely lightweight and slimline build design
Auto-Draw: Auto-draw results in simple streamlined function

Uwell, who first came to our attention with sub-ohm tanks such as the Crown V and Valyrian, went on to further stun us with their fantastic Caliburn pod series. And they don’t show any sign of slowing down with the recent release of the Uwell Popreel N1 Pod Kit!

The Popreel N1 is designed to be not only slight and pocketable but also incredibly lightweight; at only 27g it’s not gonna be weighing you down! The Popreel N1 has an internal battery capacity of 520mAh, which is rapidly charged via USB-C. The unit is draw activated, meaning there’s no need for button presses to use the vape.

The device uses disposable pods, so you don’t need to worry about messy coil changes – just use the pod until it tastes bad, toss it away, then fill and plug in a new one – simple enough! The Uwell Popreed N1 features an eye-catching diamond pattern that isn’t just stylish, it also promotes a more ergonomic grip and cuts down on fumbling.

The Popreel N1s are the best small vapes for those who want pocket-sized streamlined style!

Features We Love

Durable: Remarkably durable design for such a pocket-sized vape
Portability: Possibly the most portable vape ever made
Design: Looks more like a flip-top lighter than a vape

Voopoo’s DRAG Nano 2 is a far cry from the kind of units we normally associate with Voopoo, who are usually more at home with big kits like the Argus GT 2 and larger pod kits like the DRAG X Pro. However the DRAG Nano 2 proves that they aren’t to be pigeonholed!

The Voopoo DRAG Nano 2 has a battery capacity of 800mAh, which is honestly surprising for such a frankly tiny device and should result in a full day of vaping. The unit also features three distinct power output levels which can be switched between easily with the single button interface.

The DRAG Nano 2 is auto-draw only, meaning there’s no firing button and as such you can’t accidentally fire it up in your pocket! The pods are disposable, which does away with messy coil changes and are available in ohmages of 0.8ohms and 1.2ohms, with one of each being included in the kit.

The DRAG Nano 2 even comes with a lanyard included, in case you feel like wearing it as a necklace! It’s easily the best stealth vape, as the unit is beautifully designed with faux-leather panels and is the size of a flip-top lighter, so unless you’re seen using it it’s highly unlikely anyone will know that’s a vape in your hand! Easily the best small vapes for those who like to accessorise!

Specifications

  • 20W max output
  • Built-in 800mAh battery
  • Equipped with safety protection
  • Small and compact zinc alloy built
  • Top-filling and visible 2ml TPD compliant pod
  • Compatible with VINCI pod cartridge (sold separately)
  • Equipped with powerful GENE chip technology
  • 3-color LED light for power and battery status
  • 2 power controls – smart match or 3-level adjustable power output
  • Adjustable airflow
