New Smaller Billow V2 – What Does The Nano Have To Offer?
The Billow V2 Nano is the new shortened version of the wildly popular Billow V2, due to huge demand from consumers Eciggity and Ehpro have decided to release a shortened, 3.2ml capacity version of the Billow V2 that also retains all the excellent features that made the Billow V2 such an outstanding tank.
Does the shortened version still provide the same outstanding performance of the original?
Billow V2 Nano Kit Contents
- Billow V2 Nano Rebuildable Tank Atomizer
- Delrin base drip tip
- Spares pack including O-Rings, Muji cotton wick, spare post screws and two pre-made coils (0.5mm kanthal with a 2.5mm internal diameter)
It’s pretty much the same deal that you get when purchasing the Billow V1 or full size Billow V2, which has to be one of the most comprehensive spares kits available with any tank on the market.
There’s literally everything you need here to get started straight away. The superb screwdriver tool that has been ever present in pretty much every Eciggity/Ehpro release to date is present in the kit too, I’m a big fan of this as it’s a really handy tool to have and a step above the usual useless blue screwdriver included with most other kits!
Ehpro Billow V2 Nano Set Up
I’m pleased to report the Nano version is just as easy to set up as the full size version is. The tank section screws away from the base of the tank to allow you access to the build deck- this is also the method you will use when refilling the Billow V2 Nano.
The deck itself is exactly the same as the one present on the original Billow V2, with a cyclops airflow slot present at either side of the deck, 4 posts with decent sized post holes and the T-shaped big juice channels with a small indent for your wick tails to sit on are all present.
You’ll be able to fit some fairly decent sized coils in the deck, but with the short chimney I haven’t been able to fit coils in that have a diameter larger than 2.5mm.
The Billow V2 Nano is still a dual coil only tank, and the deck itself was completely spotless on arrival which was great, as this means I could use the Billow V2 Nano straight out of the box.
As per when I reviewed the original Billow, the same pre made dual coils were supplied in the kit, and I again opted to use these, both coils are made from 0.5mm kanthal and have a 2.5mm internal diameter, these gave me a resistance of 0.25ohm.
The handy groove cut into the top of the juice channels is ideal for wick placement, as placing your wick tail perfectly on each of these grooves has meant I have been free of dry hits and full of great flavor!
As per the original you can get at your build deck quickly without having to dump out a whole tank of juice to make adjustments or re-wick as and when you need to, which is a great option.
You also refill simply by inverting the tank and unscrewing it, then filling to the side of the chimney, as there is no fill screw present which makes filling on the move quick and an absolute breeze.
The Nano has retained the delrin based drip tip from the full size version, which means the drip tip stays cool when running the Billow V2 at high power, and with the use of PEEK insulators the whole tank itself tends to stay cool from experience.
It’s a very easy tank to set up and use.

How Does The Billow V2 Nano by Ehpro perform?
Now the key aspect to look at would be how it compares with the full size Billow V2, which set a benchmark for rebuild-able tank performance with how good the flavor and clouds were from that tank. And it matches it like for like, the same outstanding performance is found here.
I ran the same build in the full size and nano versions, with the same wicking material, and the same juice in both tanks and I could discern no difference in performance between to the two tanks.
The flavor was perhaps ever so slightly more pronounced in the Nano version due to the shorter chimney height, but cloud production was equally as good.
Of course, with the Nano being a 3.2ml capacity tank I did need to refill more often than I would have with the full size Billow V2, but with how easy it is to refill the Billow V2 Nano this didn’t cause me problems.
I didn’t have any wicking or leaking issues with the Nano version, just pure outstanding performance time and time again.
Final Review Verdict
The original Billow V2 is an absolutely outstanding tank, and the Billow V2 Nano performs equally as good. Despite the smaller stature it performs just as well, maybe even slightly better as I did believe the flavor just a touch better than on the full size Billow V2.
It’s the same fantastic tank just in a slightly smaller package! In terms of packages, Eciggity/Ehpro will be releasing the Billow V2 Nano as part of a package with the new Ehpro SPD A8 mod, which will be called the Ehpro EKit G3.
Is the Billow V2 Nano worth purchasing for owners of the full size Billow V2? No, I don’t believe so, there’s nothing different here apart from the smaller size.
It is just a smaller version of the original, which is exactly how it has been marketed, rather than being marketed as a successor of sorts. What you have is one of the very best tanks on the market today in a smaller package, one that’s ideal for those small form factor high power box mods!
- Top of the market flavor enhanced by the smaller height
- Huge cloud production
- Build deck accessible without dumping a tankful of juice out
- Easy to refill
- No fill screws present
- Great build quality
- Great value for money
- Leak free
The Not So Good
- 3.2ml capacity drains extremely quickly, you will be refilling often.
- Build deck still remains on the small side
- Can still only use dual coil set ups
- Nothing to really tempt users of the original Billow V2 into purchasing
- Pretty much the same size as the full size version
