Mini box mods are taking vaping by storm. No longer are small box mods underpowered mouth to lung devices. Now we are seeing small but powerful devices offered by a variety of well-known companies.
Why Mini Box Mods?
Mini box mods are great for many reasons. Did we mention they are mini? You can throw them in a pocket, a backpack, heck you can toss them anywhere. They are ultra portable and hardly noticeable most of the time.
Only until recently have mini box mods become something that offers higher power in a pocket-size device. Years ago the term mini box mod did not exist. To achieve high power required large bulky devices that were intrusive and did not fit in a pocket very well.
As all things go with advancements, mod makers worldwide have found ways to put lots of power in your pocket without feeling uncomfortable.
New vapers love them because of their non-intrusive size and veteran vapers love them because of how portable they are. When a person has nice, expensive hardware the last thing they want to do is take it out on an adventure only to lose or break it.
Mini Box Mods are the answer. Simply fill the atomizer throw it into a pocket and you are ready to vape.

Innokin is well known for the quality and durability of their devices. If you were to look around forums across the internet the reported issues with Innokin are small compared to others.
No matter what they release it always seems to be very well made, performs extremely well and their company backs their products up big time.
The EZ. Watt 35W Starter Kit takes the shape of a traditional looking box mod but is shrunk down to a smaller size. Instead of a small screen, it uses a single button to switch between pre-programmed power modes. If it is used with the Prism S tank(kit only) each coil will indicate the appropriate setting for its requirements.
The EZ-Watt is a personal favorite mostly because of its small compact size. Also the feel is that of a normal box mod but considerably smaller.

Ultimate portable power does exist. It is found within the IStick Pico 21700. Eleaf is another major member of the vape world. Gaining success from their original IStick line they have silently remained in the background all these years while still producing new products.
The Istick Pico 21700 100W TC Starter Kit takes a large 21700 baterry. The capacity of this battery is absolutely enough for an average vaper to make it through the day.
The battery loads through the top by removing the battery cap.This device is slightly larger than the others due to its battery size but portability still prevails.
