Introduction – The Dwarf Starter Kit By Vapeonly
Before receiving the Vapeonly Dwarf kit I’d never heard of the brand and their product spread, when I first researched it, left me perfectly impressed. Here is a Shenzhen Brand that’s developed, over 5 years in the market, a line of products representing every vape class save rebuildables.
Their Arcus 2 all in one is shaped like no vape I’ve ever seen, with an hour glass symbol at the centre of its styling. The Malle S range of sleek and immaculate e-cigarettes, with kits that come in cases that I initially thought were pod mods, lol! Their vape mod ranges include both minis and the very boardroom friendly looking Lancer mod. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next and I definitely plan on reviewing it!
Now, the Dwarf is a 15W Starter Kit with 2 really stand out features; one being a mech style, copper fire button and the other being a capsular tank, which allows you, if you purchase a few extra capsules, to carry the capsules along on your missions instead of a swathe of ejuice bottles. It’s just…special.

Build Quality & Design
The Dwarf arrives in an orange flip box with a hangable display sleeve.
Before you remove it, it looks like a small, black or silver AIO (All In One device) but as soon as you lift it out and start scanning for button fire and top cap, you realise that there is more to it than that.
The base includes a centralized copper fire button which operates like a mech switch, it is stamped with the serial number and branding, surrounding it is an inward tapering ring which features 6 circular battery vents.
The brushed aluminium chassis is completely scratch proof.
Stamped on one side is the DWARF brand, with the Vapeonly logo opposite it, between them at 90 degrees is what looks like a reset hole but is actually the device’s LED indicator light.
7.4cm Above the base rim is an airflow ring which features a gnurled grip-ring with two airflow notches at either upper edge; this ring turns smoothly within its seating, which is visible as two shiny aluminium rings in the black version.
Above that is the tank section, which is also rather an interesting concept, as, contained in a capsule made of glass, which can be completely removed from the cylinder, which has a viewing window either side, is your 2ml tank, which, with its two little top fill holes, can be sealed with a silicone stopper.
This capsulation allows you not only to carry a few extra tanks with different juices in, it also means that this tank wont leak while you’re using it or if you turn it on its side.
The top cap features similar knurling to the airflow ring and closes with a springloaded pull and twist, which essentially child (and idiot) proofs the cap.
The mouthpiece and top cap are continuous and the drip tip is a thick walled and narrow channelled, tapering MTL tip.
Overall, I really like the look of it, there’s something classical about it…maybe the copper fire button and the brushed finish but it looks smart.
Given that more than one capsular tank could be convenient to carry with you, the brand should have included more of these. Besides that, there is everything you need, including a spare stopper and an extra MTL coil.
How Does The Vapeonly Dwarf Kit Perform?
This is convenient and stylish MTL(mouth to lung) vaping at its best.
If you are new to the term MTL checkout our guide here.
Firstly, I absolutely love holding the device between my forefinger and thumb and then bottom firing with my little finger, it just feels right. This mech style fire is part of the reason why I’m enjoying the Dwarf more than I’ve ever enjoyed a little AIO style device of this callibre before.
The copper button has a tight spring and feels like it will never fail.
The top fill works great and the cap is easy to lock and unlock and this and the stopper ensure that the device will never leak.
I find the drip tip very comfortable.
This is, hands down, the best 15W MTL experience I have had as a reviewer. I am getting MTL cloud and flavour on a DL (Direct to Lung) scale.
I stress tested the device by chainvaping restricted DL hits and was highly impressed by the way the coil and the device stood up, with zero overheating.
The device is flawless, in my opinion.
How To Fill
- Press and twist the top cap
- Remove the silicon ring which stops the fill-holes
- Fill through a hole
- Replace the stopper
How To Change the Coil
- Remove the top cap
- Get a grip on the capsule through the viewing windows and push out the capsule
- Remove the coil from the capsule bottom
- Replace and return to its seating.
Stock Coil Performance
These 0.8 Ohm MTL coils provide the flavour and vapour of at least a 30W DL device, they are absolutely remarkable and seriously hardy, as I gave them a real run for their m oney with restricted DL hits.
Absolute plumes of vapour from a large MTL draw.
This was all quite a surprise to me, since the coilheads are practically microscopic.
The onboard battery is huge for this size device and really good quality too. 1500MAh and this device runs smooth for at least 8 hours before asking for a charge.
The light blinks red when the battery is under 20%, yellow under 60% and green under a hundred.
- I’d like to conratulate Vapeonly in a well written, well illustrated and truly outstanding user manual
- Convenient top fill and innovative capsular tank
- Wonderful bottom fire button gives it a unique fill
- High qualuty metallic finish is scratchproof
- Great battery life
- Oustanding vapour for MTL
- Rich, full flavour
- They should have included extra capsules
Final Review Verdict
The Vapeonly Dwarf is an AIO style kit with a difference, the bottom fire gives this device a completely unusual feel from other pen style vapes like this. While not everyone is going to enjoy the classic styling, I think this is perfect for the office or any situation where you don’t necessarily want your vape becoming the talk of the town.
I’ve had nothing but joy from the Dwarf….and, being a LOTR nut, the name makes me smile everytime I say it. If your looking for an MTL device that will deliver convenience, battery life, full flavour and solid vapour, then the dwarf is for you. No complaints from me and I can’t wait to try more items from this Vapeonly!
Would I buy the Vapeonly Dwarf kit if I lost/broke the device? Absolutely!
