I’m reviewing the Oumier Wasp Nano Stick which as the title suggests is an RDA/AIO hybrid…interesting!
Oumier is a relatively small player in the world of vaping, founded in 2013 it tends to stick to just a few different models at a time.
The Wasp Nano range has been quite a winner for them.
What Can We Expect From the Oumier Wasp Nano Stick?
If you’ve ever seen a Wasp Nano RDA, then you know pretty much what to expect at the top of this kit.
The Oumier Wasp Nano Stick is a single coil dripper, with a plastic top cap.
What’s more unusual is that Oumier has married this to a rechargeable battery to make an AIO – I’m honestly not sure I’ve ever seen a dripper/AIO like this before!
Not only that, but it has some pretty loud graphics, and if that’s not enough to get you noticed, the whole thing lights up like a glow stick as well.
Definitely an interesting one! Is it all flash and no substance though? Only one way to find out!
This was sent over free of charge for the purpose of review (thank you), as always I shall report back honestly with what I find.

Design and Build Quality
The Oumier Wasp Nano Stick comes in three colours: Gold, Stainless Steel, and Black (which I received)
As you can see, the different colours also mean you get a different design on the main tube. Either a tiger (I think?) a flaming skull, or the word “Stick” (which rather oddly has a pencil on it as well…)
It cycles through several colours when vaping, lighting up the whole of the tube.
Oumier Wasp Nano Stick Body
The main tube of the body is 24mm, it’s made out of a clear plastic, with an internal white plastic that will be housing the battery.
This combination of clear on the outside, with black printing, and an internal white tube, helps everything “light up” when you’re vaping.
The base has your expected regulatory marks, the name of the device, and a small battery venting hole.
Moving to the top of the tube there’s a metal collar with some decoration. On one side of this is your fire button, and on the reverse is your USB C charge port.
Interestingly you can see that although the tube is 24mm, the dripper itself looks to be 22mm (like the wasp RDA that it is based on) so there’s a bit of a shoulder at the top.
Oumier Wasp Nano Stick Controls
Although the fire button looks to be all of a piece, it actually has two transparent windows at the top for the fire button LED to shine through.
This is used to communicate the status of your battery.
- Green – 70%+
- Blue – 30-70%
- Red – 30%-
- Flashing Red x5 – Low battery
However it also pulls double duty as a way of being able to adjust your output.
Press the fire button three times when it’s on and the light will flash to tell you which mode it’s in.
- Green – 3.9-4.2V
- Blue – 3.6-3.9V,
- Red – 3.3-3.6V
Finally you can switch on/off the device with a standard 5x press of the fire button, and happily you can disable the “breathing” LEDs by a 4x press.
Oumier Wasp Nano Stick the Dripper
Anyone that has played with a Wasp Nano RDA will instantly know what to expect with this.
It’s a single coil deck with side airflow, two flat head screws hold the legs of your coil in place, and you have plenty of room to trim them.
Over the top of the deck you place the top cap which is also your drip tip.
And you rotate that to line up with the airflow slots that are positioned level with your coil.
Sadly it doesn’t have a 510 as the whole kit is one piece, despite the fact it looks like they just took a Nano RDA and stuck it on the top.
Building the Oumier Wasp Nano Stick
- Unscrew the deck screws with a flat headed screwdriver
- Place your coil and tighten down the screws to hold it in place
- Snip the ends of the legs, you’ve got plenty of space to do this, but also it’s not vital to have them cut super close as it has a plastic top cap
- Straighten your coil with a screwdriver or coiling rod
- Feed your wick through the coil
- And trim the tails so it will rest in the top
- Place your wick tails into the top of the deck
- And prime it with e-liquid
- Then just replace your top cap, and you’re good to go!
How Does the Oumier Wasp Nano Stick Perform?
I’ve been using the Nano Stick for a few weeks now, and it’s an unusual bit of kit.
You have limited control over it’s power (3 options) so you should know your Ohms Law to make sure you build a coil that suits you.
It’s also really disconcerting building on a device where you can’t check the wattage before putting power through it.
Although it’s not nearly as worrying as doing this on a mech mod might be (due to low resistance protection) it still feels a bit weird!
First things first, I absolutely loathe the light show this thing puts on!
I don’t mind mods that light up so much, but when they’re cycling through colours whilst you’re vaping it just seems unnecessary.
Happily you can turn this off with an easy 4x press of the firing button!
Oumier Wasp Nano Stick Flavour
Flavour from this RDA is really strong and punchy, if you’ve ever used a Wasp Nano RDA you know what to expect.
Personally I feel like this shines with strong simple flavours, I tried out some more delicate and complicated creations I had made with Dripper Labs, and whilst it was OK, it didn’t seem to have much separation of the flavours.
By contrast, using a liquid like Green Energy by Fizzle, and it smacked you round the face with a great flavour.
Airflow and Cloud Production
There’s plenty of airflow on this little thing.
The really wide bore mouthpiece means there’s plenty of room, and fully open it’s an 8.5 on the 1 to 10 scale, where 1 is fully closed and 10 is fully open.
Closing it down and you can make it considerably more restrictive. I found there was a little boost to flavour once you began to close it down, but not my much.
It’s quite a noisy airflow, the plastic cap I think is amplifying this! But very smooth and little turbulence.
- Easy to build
- Great flavour
- Tried and tested RDA
- Stuck with the tube for the life of the device
- Flashing light (though you can switch them off)
Final Review Verdict
So that was the Wasp Nano Stick from Oumier!
It’s a really interesting one, because the top of it is tried and tested as the Nano RDA, and just like it’s other iterations it delivers on the goods.
I’m less convinced by the idea of sticking it on top of a semi regulated tube, and making it so that it’s all one piece.
I’d be able to recommend this a lot more highly if it had a normal 510 and you could move on from the tube in the future.
As it is, you’ve got a cracking little RDA, permanently attached to a tube that has some control. Probably not enough for people that prefer a regulated mod, and not as simple as something like a mechanical (or even semi-mech).
I also can’t quite get over my natural dislike of building on something where I can’t check the resistance of my coil first.
I know that I’m not like to have any accidents due to the regulation, and whilst I feel like I’m a decent enough builder who can hit the resistance I aim for fairly accurately, I do like to know what resistance my coil is.
I’m honestly not sure what type of person this is targeted at?
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments if you have one, or if you’re thinking of getting one.
