Reviewer comments on business characteristics

The Council Of Vapor Mini Volt Kit (VOC) is a very small set-up. At the withers, we reach a rikiki dimension of 10cm (drip-tip included of course).

For the box, its power is 40 watts maximum. It is a powerful micro box that accepts even resistances in sub-ohm. Its body is covered with carbon fiber on one part, while the other is coated with a uniform anti-slip paint.

The features are minimal while also offering a possibility of using power in three different modes.

The clearomiseur delivered with is quite adapted to the box, as well from the point of view of the template as the resistive value of use of 0.8Ω. With a diameter of 20mm and a height of 37mm (without drip-tip), it manages to contain 2ml of liquid (actually almost 2.4ml). But his four airflows give him a very airy vape for a generous steam. And its drip-tip prevents the rising of liquid.

Good at first glance, this set-up is a small marvel of miniaturization but we will deepen a little details and see especially if it is reliable and what is its autonomy.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

Regarding the box, despite its small size, I find aesthetically massive. It remains ultra-light and a minimal height. It must be said that the battery is proprietary, so included, it weighs in the balance necessarily and rather in the right direction in terms of weight.

The coating on the painting part is soft with the impression of having in the hands of the silicone. The other part, made of carbon fiber, has a rough feel like embossing.

The buttons on the side are bright aluminum and do not move an eyelash. Very responsive, they are well proportioned for this box. Below, we can see an opening for recharging the battery by a micro USB cable and a small hole for heat dissipation in the box.

The OLED screen is located on the top-cap. Its size is restricted, 5mm x 10mm, but it gives us all the necessary information: vape power, battery charge, resistance value and operating mode.

The pine is silver plated for good conductivity and to avoid premature oxidation. Spring mounted, it fits perfectly to all atomizers.

The atomizer is made of stainless steel with a glossy brown coating.

It is also a small template with a diameter of 20mm and a total height (with drip-tip and without connection) of 47mm.

VOC offers us a little gem that arrives with a beautiful capacity for its size. The four airflows make it possible to have an aerial use with a good density of vapor since the value of its resistance is of 0.8 Ω.

Very easy to use, it consists of three pieces (without the resistance) and a proprietary drip-tip that screws onto the top-cap and prevents liquid from rising in the mouth. His tank is Pyrex and allows him to accept all liquids, including the most corrosive.

Reviewer's comments on functional features

The functions of the box are very simple. It offers only the variable power mode with the possibility to choose in three modes: power, standard or soft. Just press "-" and the switch to access these changes. These modes affect the heating time of the resistor.

With Power, we will have a boost effect, the resistance will heat faster by taking during a micro-moment a power greater than that required. Perfect to wake up a diesel assembly so. Standard mode speaks for itself, it is the native mode of the chipset. The Soft mode will allow a more progressive heating of the resistance, useful for some very reactive assemblies which tend to slightly overheat the juice of entry, when the capillary is not yet perfectly nourished.

The lock of the box adjustment buttons is automatic, you must press both "+" and the switch to unlock and adjust the value of the power.

Energy saving requires, the box turns off automatically after five minutes of non-use.

It benefits from short circuit protection, checks the resistance value, gives the battery charge level, recharges via a micro USB port and protects itself in case of overheating. What more ?

The features of the atomizer are also very simple. Simply screw on its base a proprietary resistance of a value of 0.8Ω. Relatively aerial with variable airflow, it can adapt to both 0.5Ω resistors or even 1.2Ω resistors, reducing the airflow that is adjustable by a swivel ring on 4 cyclops type airholes.

Its filling is done at the top by unscrewing the drip tip of its top cap, it is also very effective against splashing back into the mouth by the fireplace. A little gem that should be able to contain 2ml of liquid but which actually happens to take 2.4ml, we will not complain!

Vapelier's note on packaging: 4 / 5 4 5 out of stars

Reviewer's comments on conditioning

VOC offers us a beautiful packaging in a Plexiglas box.

The kit is very complete, it is a pack ready to vaper (e-liquid not provided anyway 😉).

Well set, you will find, in each compartment of the foam post-formed: the box, the atomizer, a spare resistance, a micro USB cable for recharging, an additional pyrex tank with a seal, a manual for the box and one for the atomizer and two small cards of recommendations / boards of use by the manufacturer.

The presentation of the box is superb, elegant and sober in addition to being complete. This set is available at a great price which induces an excellent quality / price ratio.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product

Regarding the use, it's plug & play!

The features are minimal so impossible to make a wrong move or to be wrong with this product. It is therefore a set that is intended both for beginners and old truckers of the vape.

On the other hand, a fundamental question arises. Does this set-up offer enough autonomy?

Well, it depends on how you use it. To begin, Council Of Vapor discourages you from using it with too low resistances (0.2Ω or less). Although technically the thing is possible, the capacity of your battery will be penalized by premature wear and especially by a very short autonomy of vape.

The resistance provided in the atomizer is 0.8Ω, although the box has captured it at 0.9Ω. I steamed at a power of 30W for five hours bluntly. Reloading, meanwhile, lasted about three hours, which is long.

After the first recharge, it seems to me that the autonomy has increased. Indeed, I used it the next day with one of my atomizers with a resistance of 1.1Ω and a power of 20W and I managed to vape almost eight hours.

For a box of this size and power, I must say that I did not expect as much.

Ergonomically, the little hands will be delighted and people wanting a discreet product will appreciate to slide their set-up in the front pocket of their jeans.

In addition, the Mini Volt kit turns itself off, with no activity, after five minutes. This can be a disadvantage sometimes but very practical to conserve the autonomy of its battery.

Locking the box is constant, so you can only adjust the power to the desired value before vapping. Then the buttons will lock automatically. So impossible to vaper 40W unexpectedly. A more undeniable for a box typically made to be nomadic. Of course, you can disengage the lock at any time by pressing [+] and [switch].

The mood ticket of the reviewer

The Mini Volt Kit is really a practical product, extremely simple to use, intended mainly for beginners in the vape eager to progress at their own pace to make a beautiful steam. As well as to people who do not wish to have resistance rebuilding constraints or those who seek discretion.

This product is made for a range of half a day to a day depending on the value of resistance and power on which we vape. It is clear that on a double-coil of 0.2Ω to 40W, you will not go beyond a pair of hours and more ... For this reason and although the capacity of this box allows the vape in ultra sub- ohm, I particularly advise against vapping under 0.5Ω.

The ideal for a daily autonomy would be 1.2Ω with a power of 18W by closing the airflows slightly.

A good quality set with a very good price / quality ratio. This is a little gem that will delight more than one or more.
