best stealth vape mini box mod

What Are The Best Mini Box Mods To Buy? We Take A Look At Some Of The Smallest Vape Mods Available In 2018.

Mini box mods have always been a popular option with those looking for a stealthy and discreet vaping mod. However, until recently they have been pretty limited in terms of what they can offer, due to their small form factor.

However, with chip and battery technology advancing on a pretty much daily basis, there have been a lot of mini vape mods hitting the market. Great news is they are also packed with features such as temperature control, and plenty of power to go head to head with their much bigger brothers!

Today we are looking at some of the best mini mods on the market, the ones we feel offer the best performance, form factor and bang for your buck.

The first 8 vape mods can be classed as micro or nano vape mods due to their size.

The last 4 are larger but definitely still in the mini box mod territory.

Here is our list of some of the smallest vape mods for 2018, in no particular order.

Top Choice Nano/Micro Box Mods

Wismec RX Mini – 80W – 2100 mAh Battery

Reuleaux RX Mini Kit in handWismec have been releasing some superb hardware recently. One of the most recent (at the time of writing) and smallest is the Wismec RX Mini vape mod.

While not the smallest on the list it is certainly one of the most powerful offering upto 80W power output and a respectable 2100mAh integrated battery.

The form factor, while on the chunky side, works well fitting in the palm of your hand. Just keep in mind the weight if you are going for something discreet.

The RX Mini also offers all the vaping modes that will keep even the most advanced vapers happy, TCR, Bypass, temp control as well as upgradeable firmware.

Add to this a large, bright and easy to read OLED screen and Wismec have produced a little winner.

Innokin Cool Fire Mini – 40W – 1300mAh Battery

innokin coolfire mini in handThe Innokin Cool Fire 4 was one of our favourite vape mods, along with it’s more powerful brothers. The release of the Cool Fire Mini had us pretty excited and it doesn’t disappoint.

Looks wise it’s pretty much identical to it’s bigger brother, definitely a good thing in our books fitting beautifully in the hand.

It also has the same power output of 40W, ideal for sub ohm vaping, and an impressive 1300mah battery capacity including ‘vape whilst charging’ technology.

The kit version also includes the Slipstream tank which is a perfect partner.

Innokin Cool Fire Pebble – 50W – 1300mAh Battery

innokin pebble box modThe Innokin Cool Pebble was released around the same time as the CoolFire Mini (above) and while the specs are similar the Pebble has a more classic box mod design.

This is, however, one of the smallest vape mods on this list. If a true stealthy mod is what you are looking for then you won’t get much smaller than this.

Considering the size it still manages to pack in a 1300mAh battery and 50W power output.

Vapers that want a tiny box mod powered by a replaceable 18650 battery, this could be the one.

SMOK AL85 Mod (Alien Mini)- 85W – 1650 Battery

How to change the 18650 battery on the Smok AL85 modOne of the most powerful mini mods on the market and the baby brother of the best selling Alien mod. The SMOK Al85 is a small unit that is ideal for carrying around in your pocket.

A great feature on this mod is the trigger fire bar. Located down one side of the mod it only needs a gentle squeeze of the hand and away you go. It works a treat.

A replaceable 18650 battery is needed (not included in the kit) but for some this is a must have feature to prolong the life of your device. It also allows you to carry spares and rotate. Of course, always follow battery safety and carry your batteries in a protective case, not loose!

The Artery Nugget also boasts an advanced chip that can support Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel wires in temperature control mode, and it is also firmware upgradeable as well allowing you to take advantage of new features as and when they become available.

SMOK Q Box – 50W – 1600mAh Batterysmok q box kit colours

Smok have gone small… In fact, small is an understatement, the Q Box is tiny!

We like everything about the Q Box, from the large and clear OLED screen to the features that would keep even the most advanced vapers busy.

The 50W power out put is very respectable as is the 1600mAh battery. Although it comes with the TFV8 Baby tank in kit form we liked using this as a mouth to lung device paired with the Nautilus 2 as we get more vaping time.

There’s temperature control support for Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel, so the most popular wires for temperature control are covered, and a custom TCR input so you can input the TCR value of a specific wire to use in TC mode.

Along with the Wismec RX Mini this is one of the smallest vape mods available today.

Artery Nugget V2 Nano Mod – 50W – 1500mAh Battery

artery nugget v2 reviewOne of the most powerful mini mods on the market is also one of the cheapest out there. The Artery Nugget V2 is a tiny little unit that is ideal for carrying around in your pocket.

Of course, aesthetics are a personal thing but out of all the designs in this list, this is my favourite. Clean lines and fuss free with a nice bright OLED screen.

A rechargeable 1500 mAh battery is built in, which has a 5-50w power output range, and it fires down to 0.1ohm making it ideal to pair with an RDA for cloud chasing.

The Artery Nugget also boasts an advanced chip that can support Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel wires in temperature control mode, and it is also firmware upgradeable as well allowing you to take advantage of new features as and when they become available.

Council Of Vapor Mini Volt – 40W – 1300mAh Battery

Council of Vapor Mini Volt review

The Council of Vapor Mini Volt is one of the most popular mini mods out there, and also one of the biggest selling mods of 2016.

It’s budget price is backed up with great features and a long lasting inbuilt 1300 mAh lithium ion inbuilt battery, that recharges quickly via USB.

It’s tiny, smaller than your thumb, but it is able to fire resistances down to 0.2ohm, output power up to 40w and it also features three different ramp up settings allowing you to customise the ramp up time of your coils.

It also has a real carbon fibre grip, and a rubberized paint coating that minimizes slipping!

Eleaf iNano – 650mAh Battery

Eleaf iNano In Hand

The Eleaf iNano is the smallest device on the list by far. It may not even be classed as a box mod but, here it is.

While the size really is ‘nano’ the performance doesn’t match any of the other mini box mods on this list. The battery size is 650 mAh and the tank that slots into the mod has just a 0.8ml capacity.

This is one of those e cigs that you would have as a 2nd or 3rd device, specifically for those occasions where real stealth vaping is required.

  • Dimensions: 29 x 19.5 x 64.5mm
  • Weight: 120g all in
  • 650 mAh Battery
  • Tank sits inside the body of the mod
  • Fixed power output
  • 1.2 Ohm coil

Aspire Zelos – 50W – 2500mAh Battery

Aspire Zelos reviewThe Aspire Zelos really didn’t do much for me when I saw it online. It just came across as kind of meh… When I bought one for review, that all changed.

This has been a ‘go to’ mod for me when I’m out and about due to it’s compact form and superb 2500 mAh battery life. It works extremely well and is very hard wearing.

If you pair it with the Aspire Nautilus 2 tank for MTL then the battery life is even more impressive making this a great, pocket friendly vape mod.

A definite no to a yes from me.

Jacvapour Series B – 40W – Replaceable 18650 Battery

Jacvapour Series B Tilt ReviewThe Jacvapour Series B mod offers a unique take on the classic box mod. The tank sits on a slanted top that ’tilts’ just a touch so as to provide an improved, ergonomic vape. Does it make a difference? Maybe, maybe not, but I think it looks pretty cool.

There is no temp control functionality here, this mini box mod is targeted towards vapers that want a straight forward, easy to use vape device. 40W is plenty for many vapers but if you are going to go below 0.5 Ohms then you ‘may’ be better off looking at a mod with an increased power output.

The size is just right as well, the Series B Tilt sits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

Further Reading: Jacvapour Series B Review

  • Size: 78mm x 22mm x 33mm
  • 40w maximum power output
  • Quality build and unique design
  • Magnetic battery door cover

So there you have 8 of the best micro/nano box mods and 4 of the best mini box mods available on the market today.

These offer a combination of stealthy form factor, power and in some cases temperature control and inbuilt USB rechargeable batteries for convenience.

What they all do have in common is great value for money and a very stealthy vape!

If you are considering one of the smaller vape mods, just keep this in mind.

The smallest of the small vape devices do have limited battery life, especially if you are sub ohm vaping. If you are using a mouth to lung tank such as the Aspire Nautilus 2 that requires less wattage to run, they will of course last a lot longer.

So, unless you are a very light vaper, we would recommend the Nano/Micro mods with built in batteries be used as a secondary, or complementary device to your main vape.

I've been vaping since 2010 and been cigarette free ever since. Ecigclick was started to take a closer look at the mixed bag of e cigs that were available at the time. We have gone from a handful of reviews in 2010 to now covering a huge range of vaping gear with over 100 reviews and counting today with the help of the great review team we have here! I'm available on the blog most days, if you have any questions just use the contact tab and I'll get right back to you! Vape on...


  1. My favourite mini mod is an iStick Mini with Aspire K-2 tank. With a 1.6 ohm atomizer running at 3.3V it runs at around 7 watts for about five hours. The entire rig weighs less than 3 ounces when full of juice and, with the Eleaf bending adapter, will fold down to fit in a 2 X 2 X 1 inch space. There really isn’t a smaller and lighter regulated box mod available anywhere. There is also a newer 20 watt VV and VW model that is the same size and weight but costs a little more. Both are highly recommended.

  2. have a few of these mods, but prefer vaporesso’s efforts – both the target mini as the best real mini mod by some way over the others here, and the tarot nano over larger mods like the evic mini (good mod) and the pico (cheap feel to it).
    That wismec rx mini has caught my attention though.

  3. I’m really surprised Vaporesso revenger x and revenger mini aren’t being reviewed. I have had nothing but good times vaping with this versatile kit that has powerful control over all modes possibly. Bang for the buck, I’d say…

  4. I have the smok v8 and the damn thing leaks when laid on it’s side. I’m looking for a mini that I can carry in my pocket that does not leak. Suggestions?

    • The big vaping companies do not want to give out complete specifications. It is called “information asymmetry” and it gives them power over their customers. It also does not help to sell the 95 g Target Mini if customers know that the iStick 40 costs less, weighs less (93 g), has a 2200 mAh cell instead of 1300.

  5. I have made a series mech mod by modifying the Noisy Cricket to take 2 18350 batteries. It is 45mm x 45mm x 22mm, has 1400mAh and 8.4V. It works fantastic. Here is video and pictures of it. You’ll make one in an hour, and the Noisy Cricket is one of the cheapest series box mods out there.

  6. I’ve got a smok v8 stick with a 3000 bartery .I love it I also have a innokin t18 I’m after something small with the same power as the smok v8 .been looking at the q box .just somthing small to put in my pocket with my v8 what would u recommend like the pebble and the telsa but need 1 with no wattage .don’t understand stand all that just plug in and charge what would you recommend thx dave

    • Hey David,

      The Q Box is a great option for a small device. It’s actually tiny. The thing is, the smaller the mod the lower the battery capacity tends to be, for obvious reasons. None of the very small mods have a battery life that will match the 3000mAh V8 for instance.

      If you don’t want to have a mod that has Variable wattage functionality then this will cut down your selection massively. In fact, I’m struggling to find one that does this that will work with the tank you have.

      What I will say is that it’s very easy to change wattage, takes 5 minutes to get the hang of. Once you find your wattage then you simply don’t change it or lock it in place if the mod had that function.

      The Tesla won’t fit the tank you got with the V8. The maximum width it can fit is 22.5mm. The TFV8 Big Baby tank that comes with the V8 is 24.5mm I believe.

      So the mods you mention are good as is the Eleaf iStick Pico, although this requires the use of a replaceable battery.



  7. Zelos is the best, and it’s same for me, did not get much interest while seeing the picture, but since I bough it, it’s my go tosetup with Nautilus 2

  8. I own many of these:
    I use the Nautilus X as the atomizer, and vape 18mg at 12W. Here are my reviews.

    Volt: Turns it self off automatically in 10 minutes. Really annoying. Otherwise pretty solid.
    Nugget: Probably the best. Downside is it often cranks itself up to 50w while in my pocket. This tends to kill the coils faster when I don’t notice. It would be perfect if the buttons were slightly more recessed.
    Target: The button housing pushed through, so it broke after about 6 months.
    Eleaf Nano: Underpowered, slow to start.

    • Thanks for the comment John!

      You should be able to ‘5 click’ on/off your Nugget to stop accidental firing and save your coils. Although, if your like me you’re just chucking it in your pocket and forgetting to turn it off 🙂

  9. The foto of the Rx mini is actualy the RX300 (400W on the newest firmware)!!!
    I’ve been rocking the Evic Basic (1500mah) the smallest of all mods, 60W and compatible with the ArcticFox firmware. I’ve got only the mod not the kit (with the awfull cubis tank) and i realy don’t understand why nobody talks about this mod.
    I can mention also the Pico 75, now the pico 25 and the AL85

    • Hey Joao,

      Good catch on the RX! Now updated!

      I’ve been meaning to buy the eVic Basic to have a look at so thanks for the reminder on that. Will take a look for sure.

      Got the Pico 75 up there as well, great little mod as is the SMOK AL85. Will have the Eleaf Pico 25 in soon for review, be interesting to see that in action.

      Thanks again for your input Joao!


  10. Fantastic list, I would personally recommend the Laisimo Snow Wolf Mini Plus box mod (not the kit). Fantastic device, high build quality, great chip, fantastic form factor, good looking design and good battery life even when using with a sub ohm tank.

  11. A good list overall, however my personal favourite it the Aspire NX75-A (aluminium). The Zinc-alloy version is quite heavy but the Alu version is really light. It’s smaller than my Evic minis, fires faster and is almost down to nugget sizes. Replaceable 18650 tops it off for me.

  12. Nice list! Good work. I live the mini mods. I own the Target, Mini Volt and also one that wasnt on your list. The Council of Vapor Mega Volt. Which actually in my opinion is the best one out there as far as capabilities and battery life. Also the quick charge feature is mint! Half hour with the cord it comes with.
