The Best Compact Vape Kits in 2020

Whether you’re after a discreet ‘stealth’ vape or just an ultra-lightweight device that won’t slow you down, here’s our pick of the best pocket-friendly kits enjoyed by vapers in 2020…

The compact vape has come a long way from the days of low power cig-a-likes and one-size-fits-all starter kits. Those early vape kits served a purpose, there can be no doubt, and can be thanked for drawing thousands of smokers away from the harms of smoking. But as the demands of vapers have changed over time, so has vaping technology and the quality of the experience has, rightfully, become paramount for vapers everywhere.

These days, vapers don’t need to reach for sub-ohm vape kits the size of breeze blocks and invest in expensive equipment to enjoy the very best flavour and most satisfying vapour production. We can experience both qualities in vape devices little bigger than a lighter -and often even smaller- and that means super-portable, fuss-free vaping for all without compromising on quality.

What are the advantages of Compact Vape Kits?

The advantages of compact vape kits are clear. With much smaller form factors than bigger tank-and-mod combos and even many pen-style vapes, compact vapes can go where few other kinds of kit can. There isn’t a pocket, nook or compartment made that can’t be used to stash your favourite fun-size vape. Furthermore, such kits are far more discreet than larger models, which can be a bonus when vaping in public and at social occasions. Without the huge clouds typical of sub-ohm devices, ‘stealth vapes’ allow for more subtle vaping at moments in situations where dense clouds might prove distracting.

The biggest revolution to affect smaller vape kits has been the advent of Pod kits. Pods, whether refillable or pre-filled and disposable, did away with the traditional vape tank and reimagined it as a more form-fitting component that sat flush with the battery compartment, producing a more sleek, pocketable device. We have many varieties of pod kits at Vapestore, everything from foolproof prefills to advanced sub-ohm pod kits.

What E-liquids should you use with Compact Vape Kits?

The majority of compact vape devices offer lower power outputs via internal batteries which means that they utilise higher resistance coils. As such, you’ll find that many compact kits are best used with high-PG, 50/50 and nicotine salt eliquids for a great MTL (Mouth to Lung) style sensation, although some are compatible with high-VG juices for a satisfying DL (Direct Lung) experience providing the kit can be pared with a suitable coil.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the most popular compact vape kits at Vapestore in 2020…
