Mini Volt 40W Box Mod
Today we're going to talk about one of our favorite mods from the 'stealthy' category and a device that's definitely worth checking out. The Mini Volt 40W Box Mod is designed by The Council of Vapor (a United States brand) and manufactured in Taiwan. It is one of the smallest box mods on the market today and its looks are only matched by its performance.
It's the kind of mod that requires a small RTA (like the Goblin Mini), a small tank or an RDA on top of it in order to look nice. If you pair it with something bigger (5-6ml capacity) the tank will make the mod look like a midget and it will take away some of its minimalist charm.
The Mini Volt 40W comes packed in a transparent, hard plastic box and inside you will only find the mod, the micro-USB charging cable and a small instructions guide. The body is made from metal and carbon fiber and the quality is pretty good. It has a small display and a spring loaded 510 connector on the top, while the fire and adjustment buttons are placed on the main side. The micro-USB charging port is located on the base and as you might except, this device is powered by an internal battery.
The display while tiny does offer a generous amount of information like current wattage, battery life, atomizer resistance as well as the vaping mode. You can choose between power, standard and soft to let the device adjust the way it hits the atomizer. In standard mode it behaves exactly like any other variable wattage device however in power mode and soft mode things are a bit different. In soft mode it takes longer for it to reach the selected value and offer a milder vape while in power mode it starts at a higher value and slowly decreases to offer a harder vape.
The internal battery on the Mini Volt 40W is rated at 1,300mAh and the device can fire as low as 0.2 Ohms. Depending on the wattage setting you're looking at anything between 1.5 – 3h of vaping with this tiny device, but it is what it is. You leave it to charge (2h to get a full battery) and then take it with you anywhere as a very stealthy vape. It fits the pocket of your shirt perfectly and at the same time it's the type of device that gets you noticed.
With this mod the smaller the tank, the greater it looks on top if it and one recommendation would the Goblin Mini from UD. The REM RDA or the Derringer would also make a great combo as they also have a pretty minimalistic design. It goes from 5W up to 40W and that's probably more than enough for a moderately powered tank. It hits like a winner even at 0.4 Ohms and it's very responsive to commands. It does power off automatically after 15minutes to save battery life and it's a pretty slick mod to have to your collection or to use a backup.
