The Battlestar Nano by Smoant Previewed

Well here we have another of the Battlestar range – the Smoant Battlestar Nano.

The Original Battlestar is a 200W dual battery mod and we reviewed it in January 2017 and it has gone down a storm.

We recently reviewed the Battlestar Mini which is a single 18650 battery version and can output up to 80W.

The Battlestar Nano is at present far more low key than the other models. No mention at all on Smoant website or social media – but widely showing up in online retailers as Pre-order.

So what is the Nano version all about? Well it’s looking like it could be one of the best small vape mods out there.

Well the Nano appears to be similar to the Mini – with 80W output and uses a single 18650 battery which is not included.

However the Nano is the hardcore version! This works as a mechanical mod – so the full battery power is provided to the tank – it is not regulated and will not compensate for power dropping.

There is no screen or adjustments – simply a fire button on the front and an LED indicator.

If you buy the kit version you will get the Battlestar Nano RDA. With it’s nice Robot face!

The build deck is a dual post design and has a deep juice well. The posts seem to be well spaced to give you more build options.

This is not really for beginners, despite it being a low power mod – so don’t let that deceive you – beginners should go for the Mini version.

I do like the look of this and with it not being a full mech mod it is a bit safer.

Will you be wanting one of the Battlestar Collection? Let me know if it is on your shopping list!

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


  1. Hello, my name is Christophe, I live in France, in Thonon-Les-Bains (French side of Lake Geneva). The proprietor of “Vap Boutique” sold me one Battlestar nano yesterday. I went back to this shop this morning and told him many people are talking me out of using it, asked him not for a refund, but for another product, even if it cost a few more €uros. Is this product really reserved for experts only?

    • Hi Christophe,

      It wouldn’t be advisable for beginners. It does have protections built in but still would only be recommended for vapers confident in their vaping safety in regards to batteries and builds.
