Sometimes, the last thing we want is to be carrying around a bulky vape kit in our pockets when we're on the go. However, in the past, if you wanted a device that was anything more than basic, you didn't have a choice but to lug around a kit that could also double up as a brick. But with technology in the vaping world coming on leaps and bounds and improving every day, mini pod vapes are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and stylish.
Disposable vape kits are not the only option at your disposal if you are looking for a compact vape to carry around on the go - from sleek vape pens to clever starter kits and pod systems, this is our look at some of the best small vape kits for your convenience.
Geekvape Aegis Mini Kit
The Geekvape Aegis Mini 80W Starter Kit has many of the qualities that made its larger models more popular. Known for their extreme sturdiness and durability, these pod kits are just as long lasting and produce great flavour. The Geekvape Aegis Mini is no different.
This starter kit is made with a high quality zinc alloy along with leather lining for a design that is as sturdy as it is stylish. Despite its mini size, the Aegis Mini is just as capable of withstanding the everyday wear and tear and occasional drops that its older brother can, with its dustproof, shockproof and IP67 waterproof technology.
The replaceable panels are great for those who like to customise their pod system, and it also has a large screen that displays all of your key vaping information, such as wattage and temperature.
This pod also works up at 80W, making it a fairly versatile piece of kit. It works well for most sub-ohm vapers but is also capable of working with a MTL tank that doesn't require as much power.
The integrated 2000mAh battery provides this pod with a long-lasting battery life. This, combined with the pod tank's 2ml e-liquid capacity will definitely get you through an average day's vaping. Simply pour your e-liquid in at the start of the day and you're good to go. To top it off, the starter kit's compact design makes it extremely portable for on-the-go vaping.
