Just In Time For Stoptober the Wee Vim Is A Tiny Little Pod Kit From Jac Vapour – So Does It Satisfy?
The Jac Vapour Wee Vim from the Scotland based brand is the fast follow up to the impressive and larger VIM AIO I reviewed recently and is probably one of the easiest to use pod kits on the market.
It’s a pod style vape kit which simply means you screw in a pre-filled ‘pod’ filled with eliquid – press the fire button and vape…you can find out more about pod kits HERE.
As the name suggests this is a tiny little set-up that not only takes the pods but can also fit the VIM tank which means you can fill with your own e-liquids.
OK as I always say it was a JAC Vapour device that finally got me completely off the cancer sticks and the brand is well respected in the vaping world with kits such as the Series B DNA75 25mm mod – Series S22 Kit and the Series B Tilt all receiving rave reviews from reviewers and users alike.
OK gush fest over lol – but like I said I have a lot of time for this company.
The Wee Vim was sent to me for the purpose of this review direct from JAC Vapour – thank you – and as always freebies do not sway my opinions.
Inside the Box
This is the Wee Vim ONLY kit and comes in a nice sturdy slide out padded box…inside you’ll find:
- 1x Wee VIM 900mAH battery [the device!]

Note: You can buy a refillable Wee Vim tank as a separate purchase OR opt for the time sensitive Jac Vapour Wee Vim bundle which includes a choice of x 3 pods all for £14.99! Check that out here.

Wee VIM Quick Start Guide

Once again simplicity is key here – the Jacvapour Wee Vim is probably the easiest vape kit you’re ever likely to find!
Please remember the device comes completely alone so buy the Wee Vim pod bundle or the Wee Vim tank as a separate purpose – if you own the original VIM the good news is that tank will fit nae bother…
For this review I’m looking at the Wee Vim pod bundle.
OK you simply need to charge your device [see battery colour indicators above] and insert the pod as shown in the Quick Start Guide and vape – it’s that simple!
Not a lot more to say about the key features apart from the internal 900mAH battery certainly lasts me around 8 hours of average vaping.
As the name suggests it’s a tiny device certainly one of the smallest pod kits I’ve ever used and is light as feather slipping easily into pockets and bags.
Design and Build Quality
The Wee Vim’s body is a little more plasticcy than the larger version with none of the rubberized coating.
However I have test dropped this onto my hard kitchen floor [I didn’t mean too lol] and it bounced like a gudge‘un with no chips or dents so it looks to be well built if a little lightweight.
There’s none, if any, moving parts on this but the pods and the tank fit snug and once locked in there’s no movement at all.
Design wise it’s a shrunk down version of the VIM however the button and USB port placement is in a more comfortable spot – the USB being on the top of the device.
If you remember the VIM had the fire button below the tank – the Wee has it at the top on the opposite side making it slightly less cumbersome to use.
However, the issue I had with the light indicator has remained as they are still dead centre of the fire button which means they’re covered when you fire.
It’s a very sleek design with minimal logos on the bottom and a very nice textured back plate.
BTW I love the name of this one – Jac Vapour being based in Scotland means the Wee in this case means small – nice touch 😉
How Does the Jac Vapour Wee Vim Perform?
This is an Mouth to Lung (MTL) device and you can choose from the MTL 1.0ohm or MTL 1.5ohm pods that come in 4 flavours: Blackcurrant Squash – Strawberry Chew – UK Tobacco and Smoking Tobacco Menthol.
The pods are 2ml and none refillable – but as I’ve said you can buy the refillable tank to save yourself a few quid on pods.
OK I received x2 packets of pods – as you will if you buy the bundle – the Blackcurrant Squash and the Strawberry Chew.
Both were 18mg nic salt perfect for those of you looking to quit or those of us who need a good nic hit every now and then – after 7 years I still need one 🙂
The pods are a doddle to install and I do recommend a couple of none fire drags to get everything moving.
To be honest the first few hits were a bit muted flavour wise however after around half a dozen hits the flavours began to come through and very nice they are too.
Given these are 2ml pods and you’re vaping at around 10 to 14w they do seem to last a while and I’m half way through my first two after 5 days – good longevity.
Incidentally and unlike the larger VIM I’ve had no seepage or e-liquid residue even left on its side overnight.
As to the vape quality – I prefer a looser draw with an MTL vape and to be honest these are bang on my preferred amount of airflow – which incidentally is none adjustable.
Saying that the draw might…I say might… be a little loose for those of you coming off the fags but again you WILL be getting the all-important nicotine hit so do persevere!
You’re getting a decent amount of vapour too and it’s on the cooler side of warm – definitely not cold – and I actually found the whole vape experience very pleasant indeed.
- Dead simple to use
- Pod system is leak proof
- Battery life very good indeed
- Quick charging
- Pass through vaping [vape whilst charging]
- Good flavour
- Good clouds
- Pods last an age
- Good price
- TPD friendly!
- Lights covered by finger when firing
- Nothing in the box but the device so bare that in mind!
I tend to only MTL vape tobacco flavoured e-liquids but can say the fruity flavours were a nice change so if you are fresh off the fags then maybe opt for a tobacco and a flavoured packet of pods just to get a feel for vaping.
One thing is for sure those 18mg nicotine salt e-liquids certainly kept my nic levels topped up and I found I wasn’t vaping as much as I normally do!
Performance wise I can’t fault the JAC Vapour Wee Vim – it’s simple to use – very clean and delivers a decent MTL vape.
It certainly lives up to its name being tiny yet it’s a stylish device that being light as a feather means you might mislay it – as I did finding it tucked deep into my jeans pocket.
Maybe only selling the Wee Vim as device only is a bit stingy – however the tank can be bought separately and is relatively inexpensive.
Look, pre-filled pods are more expensive than a refillable tank – but if you’re looking for ease simplicity and cleanliness then that’s the way to go and these pods are very good indeed.
If you’re looking to get into vaping – ready to quit the cigs OR are a regular Mouth to Lung (MTL) vaper looking for a dead simple decent kit the Jac Vapour Wee VIM is one I highly recommend.
