Vaping Diaries #381: Smoking Vapor Mi-One Starter Kit

Smoking Vapor Mi-One Mod

The Mi-One starter kit by Smoking Vapor was easily one of the most popular vaping devices at ECC 2016. It’s easy to see why. It’s terrifically small and irresistibly cute. The Mi-One looks like a high-end box-mod that was hit by a shrink ray (Evil Genius™). While it might not be the most practical vaping device for hardcore vapers, it excels as a stealth vape and is an excellent conversation piece.

Below are the key specs of the Smoking Vapor Mi-One, accompanied by a bunch of photos of the kit.

  • E-Liquid capacity: 3.5 milliliters
  • Internal 20350 1,100 mAh battery
  • Top airflow adjustment
  • Top filling system with child-proof lock
  • Output voltage: 3.0-4.2 volts
  • Maximum current: 15 amps
  • Atomizer resistance range: 0.3-2.5 ohms
  • Power display colors: green, yellow, and red
  • 10 second cutoff
  • Overheating protection
  • Short circuit protection
  • Low voltage protection
  • Low resistance protection

As you can see from the specs above, the Mi-One is a decently capable mod that comes in a tiny package. I appreciate that it sports a number of safety features, which is important for a device that will be purchased by many newcomers to vaping. Let’s be real — there are a number of unknowledgeable vapers that will pick up this starter kit simply because its cute. The safety features help ensure that they have a positive experience.

The Smoking Vapor Mi-One is great as an accessory mod. The kit comes with a wrist strap, but I noticed several people at ECC 2015 wearing one on a lanyard. It’s small enough and light enough to wear around your neck without it feeling cumbersome.

While I completely understand why the Mi-One was so popular at the show, it’s not a device for me. I have a number of big and ugly mods that sport a broad array of features and have ample battery life. I simply prefer box mods that have a more substantive feel in my hand. Having said that, it’s easy to see the appeal of the Mi-One. For less than $40, vapers get an incredibly cute and stealthy box mod that’s available in a number of beautiful finishes.
