Best Nano Vape mods and mini box mods 2017What Are The Best Mini Box Mods To Buy? We Take A Look At Some Of The Smallest Vape Mods Available In 2017.

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. You can skip straight to them with the link below.

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.

Wismec RX Mini – 80W – 2100 mAh Battery

Wismec rx300 box modWismec 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.

Tesla Stealth Mod – 100W – 2200 mAh LiPo Battery

Tesla Stealth Mod

The Tesla Stealth mod is a little different from some of the other options on this list in that it is a ‘tank hider’ or ‘side by side’ mod. Whatever you want to call it, it basically means the tank sits on the side of the mod rather than on top.

I really like these type of mods and the Tesla Stealth is one of the best of it’s kind. It’s a super robust mod made from zinc alloy and finished with a rubberised coating. It’s not the lightest of mods but it’s a compact one that wears the stealth name well.

Packed into the small form factor are a whole host of features. The main being the huge 2200 mAh LiPo battery and 100W power output. Tesla also have 45W and 60W versions that are a touch smaller in size.

Just be careful what tank you are planning to use with this. The side sheath will fit a maximum tank diameter of 22.5mm. This covers the majority of the most popular tanks available, however.


  • Dimensions: 49.5 x 25 x 70mm
  • Weight: 145g (Without Tank)
  • 2200 mAh LiPo Battery
  • Up to 100w output power
  • Temp control capability
  • Robust mod

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.

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.

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 tank such as the Nautilus X 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. 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.

  2. 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.
