Honest review time: The Vaporesso OSmall

Here’s a look at a new compact pod based system recently released from Vaporesso. It’s a super simple device that’s meant to be as easy to use as it is portable but not only that, it’s affordable. There really isn’t much to it so this one will be short and sweet. Here are my honest thoughts on the Vaporesso OSmall.

1 xWarranty card

Listed features and specs:

Dimensions:84.2 x 26.5 x 13.4mm
Pod capacity:2ml
Battery capacity:350mAh
Output power:11W

Packaging and contents:

The kit comes packed in a tiny little blue box with a small window on the front so you can see the device inside. A listing of the contents, some specs and some company info can be found on the back. In the kit you get the OSmall battery, a single 1.2ohm pod, a micro USB cable, a user manual and a warranty card. Again really not much to it but you get what you need to get started and keeping it light I imagine also helps keep the price down.

The Vaporesso OSmall battery:

The OSmall mod or battery is extremely compact and looks an awful lot like a USB storage drive. It’s entirely made of plastic which doesn’t exactly make it feel premium but it also doesn’t feel cheap in the hand. It stands about 84mm tall, is roughly 26mm wide and only 13mm thick. It easily slides into the pocket and can almost be forgotten it’s so light and thin. The plastic body is textured to give it a bit more grip and style and short of a bit of branding on one side the only other remarkable feature on the outside might be the LED indicator light which shows when it’s firing, when it’s charging and any status lights it might want to display.

Being so light and thin it only has a 350mAh internal battery which is a bit on the light side but paired with the 1.2ohm coils it ships with it actually lasts a surprisingly decent amount of time, at least a few hours of average vaping for me. There is a micro USB port on the bottom for charging but it doesn’t include any type of quick charge or anything though tops ups seem to take no time at all with such a small battery. No it’s not going to be an all day type device but if you have to make a quick run to the grocery store or something like that it’s pretty much ideal. A couple other handy features are the draw to fire which so far has worked flawlessly without any significant delay but also the regulated output which I’m always a fan of. It outputs a steady 11W so no matter the level of the battery the hit you get will be consistent.

The Vaporesso OSmall Pod:

The kit only comes with one pod but obviously you can also buy them separately. The pods hold 2ml of liquid with a built-in coil coming in at 1.2ohms. There isn’t any type of airflow control but it gives a fairly decent and moderately tight mouth to lung hit. Pretty much ideal for a device like this. To fill the pods you pop them out of the device and there’s a little silicone plug on the side much like the pods from the recent Vaporesso Xtra but the pods are considerably bigger so they won’t be interchangeable. So far my experience with the pods has been fantastic with really nicely defined flavour and a good amount of vapour for the size of it. Longevity of the coils will always depend on what you are vaping, how much and how often but I imagine these will last just as long as most other standard coils and so far from my experience I’m getting about two weeks of fairly steady use from them.


With such a simple device I really have very little to complain about. I haven’t had any leaking issues like I did with the Xtra just a tiny bit of condensation build up and only after a couple days of use. I also really like the draw from it which is pretty much ideal for mouth to lung vapers. The regulated output and draw to fire make it a treat to use and most of all the price on this thing makes it extremely affordable. It works really well with salts but should also work well with higher nic liquids and 50/50s so if you’re into compact portable pod devices and are looking for an affordable on the go device I’d have no trouble giving the OSmall a friendly nod.
