Small Vape Mods: Big Vapes in Small Packages
Big and bulky vape mods have some advantages -- they are powerful, they have multiple batteries, and they can have super high wattage capabilities. However, there’s one thing that they are not… small! While pocket mods may not have the wattage output of some of their bigger brothers, they do provide several advantages that large mods don’t, including ease of mobility, easy storage, and sometimes most importantly, discreteness. Unfortunately, some small mods don’t offer the performance that many vapers seek, and when buying small vape mods, it’s important to select one that’s going to offer you the qualities that you prefer most.
Which small device should you choose? To make your selection simple, we’ve put together a list of the 10 best vape mods for small size, easy storage, compactness and discreteness!

Customer Review: “The target mini is small enough to fit in your pocket. Without the mouth piece it's about the height of a Bic lighter. It has a bit of heft to it for its size. It feels solid. I Vaped on 50/50 and 70/30 pg eliquids with the target mini pro. It Vapes them both like a champ. The 50/50 does better on the lower watt settings and the 70/30 made good vape clouds at the mid and higher watt settings. The battery charges quickly and came with half a charge so I could use it right out of the box. To fill it with eliquid you have to unscrew the top mount one way and the top lid the opposite way. I found that irritating at first but saw that it helps prevent spills by people that shouldn't be messing with it. You can put it in different modes depending on what coils you want to use. Changing the wattage or temp is easy. It's a good deal for the money. I definitely recommend it.”

Is A Small Vape Mod Right For You?
The most important factor when buying a small device is to make sure that a small model fits all of your needs. A small vape mod might be great if you want something stealth, but may not serve your needs if you’re looking to blow monster clouds. A small vape mod may be for you if:
- You’re looking for an everyday vape that you can carry with you in your purse or pocket.
- You need a stealth device that isn’t so recognizable.
- Medium cloud production is suitable to your style.
- You want a device that can easily be tucked away and stored.
If those aren’t things that you’re looking for, even the tiny vape mods won’t suit you. Don’t fret! There are many different styles of mods out there, and there is definitely one out there that meets each of your personal requirements. Check out our vape mods page to see what’s available!
