My name is Kara, and I’m a vaper. I switched from hookah to vaping a few years back and have used both mechanical and digital mods for my tanks. The last mod I used required one rechargeable battery. I vape at a low wattage (35W to 40W) but I kept getting dry or burned hits. I tried a new atomizer, a new tank, and a new battery set and nothing helped.
My good friend Lauren at Lauren Vapes sent me a Snow Wolf Mini to try and see if it helped at all. I decided to review it. Here we go!
This is a nice pocket-sized travel vape mod. It measures 68.5mm by 43mm by 24mm and weighs .170 kg. It fits in my change pocket on my jeans and isn’t so heavy that it pulls my pants down.
The ion-lithium rechargeable battery has a 3000 mah capacity with a mini USB port, which has a fairly common cord so I found that very convenient.
It’s got a wattage output range of 5-80W and a voltage output range of .5-7.5V. Its hit is consistent and the battery life is more than enough to get me through several days of off-and-on vaping.
It sports an on/off switch to keep it from turning on when you don’t want it to (like in your pocket, or in your bag) and an easy-to-read led screen. Its got a simple button layout of power and plus/minus makes menu navigation and usage easy. I only have the mod — not the kit and user manual it would usually come with — and even without it I was able to figure out how to adjust all the settings and set the DIY profiles.
The Snow Wolf Mini comes in a few different colors: matte black, glossy black, silver, and gold. All of the different colors have the smooth black glass back and front.
I’m using it with a tank that holds 3.0 ml of liquid with a .6 ohm 20-50 W atomizer. The tank I use is not one that comes with the mod but it is a standard-sized tank and it sits comfortably and securely on the mod. It’s nice that if you have a sub ohm tank you like you can use it on this mod with no problems.
No need to carry batteries around! This little guy is rechargeable and self-contained.
Since the USB cable is universal, if I really need to charge it while I’m out, it’s not hard to find a compatible cable and a USB outlet. With how much I vape, which is a moderate amount of 2 to 3 hours a day, it lasted a few days before it needed a charge. I also found the power output to be constant whether it was freshly-charged or running low on power.
Not too heavy and easy to hold and carry. An odd “pro,” but, when you’re standing around holding your vape, I prefer not to have something clunky or uncomfortable to hold.
This mod feels smooth and solid. Cool glass coverings and a rounded metal cover with no sharp edges or places to snag on your clothes or hands.
While the battery life works for my vaping lifestyle, I can see how heavier users may not get what they need out of this mod. Even though it lasts a few days for me, I still carry and extra mod in my bag so I don’t need to stop and find a charger or halt my vaping till I get home. The benefits of batteries are that you can swap them on the go and keep vaping if you need to.
The finish on the smooth round edges can chip off. This is a small thing, but, when the copper-colored metal under the paint shows through, it takes away some of the sleekness of the mod. It’ understandable that this would happen after months of use and, if you chose to get a silicone cover or skin for it, It wouldn’t be an issue at all.
I like this mod. It has become my primary go-to mod. It’s been very reliable and has completely fixed my dry hit problem. It was difficult to come up with cons for it, it works so well for me!
I think it would be good for a beginner or intermediate vape user. If I charged it every night I don’t think I would have a problem with battery life ever.
I think the look is stylish and sleek and, even though the paint has chipped in a few places, that’s bound to happen when you use a mod as often and consistently as I do. I got this particular mod as a gift but would absolutely pay $80.00 for another should this one break.
Thanks, Lauren for letting me test and review the mod. I love it!
