Kangside Release The KSD Vamo 25W ‘Super Mini’ Box Mod
Kangside, the makers of one of the most popular tube mods of all time, the Vamo series, have entered the box mod market with the release of two new boxes- the KSD Vamo 25w box mod and the KSD Vamo 50w box mod (reviewed here), both sporting very similar looks but two completely different form factors.
We will look at the KSD Vamo 50w box mod in a separate review, but today I’m going to look at the 25w version, which is a tiny 18350 box mod and has to be one of the smallest mods I have ever had my hands on!
Kit ContentsEven the packaging is tiny, it’s a pretty stylish little box, and inside is-
• Kangside KSD Vamo 25w Box Mod
• USB Charger
• Instruction manual
VAMO 25W Battery / Body / Build
Out of the box you are going to notice that this thing is really tiny! It gets swallowed up in the palm of my hand, and coupled with an atomiser like the Freakshow Mini you have the ultimate in out and about stealth vaping set ups! It does require an 18350 battery, so you will need to supply your own.
The battery is installed through the twist battery cap at the bottom of the mod itself and you can also charge using the supplied micro USB charging cable.
The spring loaded 510 connector found at the top of the mod is smooth and allows for a nice flush fit with your atomisers, you have a large power button at the side of the mod along with a plus and minus button, and a clear OLED screen as well. The buttons themselves are quite solid, I found them a little on the clicky side, but there wasn’t any noticeable rattle from the buttons.
All in, everything is solid and well put together, it feels nice in hand, with the added bonus that it is absolutely tiny!

How Does The KSD Vamo 25W Perform?
It’s a tiny little mod, but it’s more than capable of putting out a pretty respectable 25w! I found it to work really well coupled with the Freakshow Mini and a 1ohm build, which had the added bonus of a pretty decent battery life in the 15-18w range. In hand, its a perfect stealth set up, and a world away from the high power bulky box mods on the market today.
The picture below is with the Innokin Apex iSub tank which makes it bigger than it needs to be!
It performs as well as you would expect it to, and it’s a no frills straightforward VV/VW mod. The chip functions very well and it is really responsive, with no delay when hitting the fire button.
It is limited by its size and the fact it needs an 18350 battery, as these batteries do not tend to have the highest mAh capacity I did find that I needed a couple of battery charges a day when using this unit as the battery does drain quickly. That is negated however by the fact the battery can be accessed quickly, and you can also charge via micro USB when on the move!
Final KSD 25W Review Verdict
If you are looking for a little stealth mod, and you aren’t too fussed about high power or performance, this is the mod for you. The form factor in your hand is great, everything feels solidly made, the spring loaded 510 connector works like a dream and it does everything that you need from it.
Obviously it’s limited by its size, but this is going to appeal to those who prefer small form factor and don’t need as much power as what is on offer from the latest craze of high power mods!
• Tiny form factor
• Very well made
• Cheap price
• Ideal starter mod
• Spring loaded 510 connector
• Micro USB charging
• Easy access to the battery through the twist battery cap
The Not So Good
• Buttons are a little clicky
• Power is limited to 25w
• Battery lifespan is a little short from a 18350 battery
