Joyetech Ego One Mini Intro
I know we have been reviewing many sub ohm tanks recently as well as high end TC box mods. I thought we needed to go back to the roots a little and take a look at some mouth to lung type devices more suited to beginners or those looking for a portable stealth vape. In this review we take a look at the impressive and tiny Joyetech Ego One Mini.
I won’t be going into too much detail in this review, as we previously reviewed the standard Joyetech Ego One (1100mAh), which is a great device. The Ego One Mini is essentially the same thing, but comes with a less thick battery and is smaller in height to the 2200mAh Ego One. It is absolutely tiny and perfect for a stealth vape or taking out and about with you in your pocket. It comes with an 850mAh battery and uses the same coils as the other Ego Ones. The Ego One Mini has a 1.8ml tank and is only 109mm in length.
This Ego One Mini was kindly provided to us by Jack at AVE40 for reviewing purposes.
Joyetech Ego One Mini Specs and Features
- Battery: 850mAh
- Tank Capacity:8ml
- Coils Available:5ohm and 1.0ohm
- Sizes: 16mm Diameter and 109mm Length
- Colors Available: Black and Brushed Steel, Water Blue and Hot Pink
1.0ohm – This coil head provides a tighter inhalation/draw with its 1.8mm air inlet. This is perfect for mouth to lung draws. This is the coil I would recommend anyone new to vaping, as the draw will match that of a cigarette.
0.5ohm – This atomizer features a 3.5mm air inlet to deliver a more airy draw suitable for direct lung inhales that you would be used to from sub ohm clearomizers.
CLR Rebuildable Coil Heads – There are also CLR rebuildable coil heads available for the Ego One Mini and all of the other Ego Ones. These coil heads can be rebuilt.
All the coils are interchangeable in all of the Ego One devices.
Tiny Pocket Size
The Ego One Mini is tiny and a lot shorter in height compared to the Ego One 2200mAh version. The Ego One Mini is actually slightly taller than the 1100mAh Ego One we reviewed previously, but therefore a lot less thick (see pics below).
Great Performing Coils and Flavor
I was really impressed with both of the coils we tried. The 1ohm coil is perfect for mouth to lung draws with the air flow slightly closed off. The 0.5ohm coil with the air flow wide open, is great for direct lung inhales.
The flavor is pretty darn good considering the size of these coils and the tank itself. Obviously they can’t be compared to some of the larger sub ohm tanks when it comes to lung hits. However, the 1ohm coil with a mouth to lung draw is very much comparable flavor wise to the Nautilus Mini clearomizer.
Good for Mouth to Lung Vaping as well as Direct Lung Inhales
This device is a great device for beginner vapers and those who are looking for a tiny stealth vape with some versatility in terms of the draw. Beginners/new vapers will appreciate the 1ohm coil and its tight mouth to lung draw, as it mimics the draw of a cigarette.
The direct lung inhalers will also be able to use the 0.5ohm coil head, which has more air flow and thus allows for a nice direct lung inhale.
Solid Build Quality
The build quality of the device feels really solid and the product has a really nice finish to it.
Improved Larger Windows
The original Ego Ones had much smaller windows on the tank. Joyetech obviously listened to feedback and has made the windows on the Ego One Mini a bit larger.
I can’t really complain about this too much due to the tiny size of the device. However, the battery life isn’t great if you are a heavy vaper. If you are vaping on it quite heavily you can look to get through one battery within about 4-5 hours. It can be charged via USB, which is a positive and can be vaped whilst being charged by USB.
Tight Space for Refilling the Tank
This was the only real negative of the Ego One Mini. The space to drip e-juice into is very thin. This means it is very easy to spill some into the middle channel. It is a small tank, so I can understand this, but it was one thing that was a little bit tricky and I could see new vapers perhaps struggling with that.
There is not much to say other than that the Ego One Mini is a fantastic little vaping device. I can highly recommend it to new vapers, who might be looking for form factor and a mouth to lung vape. It is also a great vape for more experienced vapers looking for a portable stealth vape to take out and about. It isn’t a great solution for heavy vapers, as the tank capacity isn’t that big and the battery life isn’t suited to heavy vaping.
