Portable. What exactly does that mean for a Vape Mod? After all, most any vape device is portable, depending on the size of your pockets, or how much you’re willing to carry. But, as vapers know, some devices are lighter, more streamlined, and more comfortable to tote around each day.
You know… portable.
For the purposes of this Best of Compilation, we’ve omitted some of the obvious choices – most pen vapes and pod mods as well as tiny all-in-one devices that can sit in a shirt pocket without anyone knowing. While we could take the easy way out and simply compile a list of the 10 newest, or most marketed starter kits and call it a day, we put a lot of thought into each and every device chosen for inclusion here. Certainly the criteria of this “Best Of” piece is portability and pocket-friendly, but just as important is “performance” and “value vs cost“. In order to become one of the “chosen” the Mod Kit had to perform supremely well for its portability, and it’s cost to the Vaper must be money well spent.
During the past couple of months we decided to break our #1 Rule that was maintained for more than 6 years; to tell our readers which devices are “best”. Although “best” is as subjective as you can get, we’re not some review site hooked up with affiliate programs and who’s job it is is to write glowing reviews on every product we review so that you’ll buy one and earn us a commission. If that day ever came, well… it wouldn’t. We’d shutter our windows and go home before that happened.
The honest reason we decided to break our own rule about declaring certain mods, tanks, and starter kits “best” is that we are all so sick of seeing Best Of lists throughout the internet that consist of products that we know, we know with complete certainty, are pure over-rated garbage. Yet we continue to see them show up on list after list because the manufacturer, or vendor, pays the website to put their product on a Best Of list, and link it to the product page with an affiliate link. It is maddening to us to see this happen every day. So, we decided to do something about it.
Mods, Tanks, and Kits that Deserve to be Recognized
If you are familiar with Spinfuel VAPE at all you might already know that we have never, and will never, become an affiliate with any company. We will never earn a commission on any product we review. And, if we believe any Vape Mod, Vape Tank, or Starter Kit isn’t very good, or too expensive, or simply not worth your hard-earned money, we’re going to tell you. It has always been like that for us, and we’ve never lost sleep over reviewing any device since February 2012.
These “Best Of” compilations that we’ve been generating for our readers were created to bring forth some truth to the vape community. That means that every mod, tank, and kit you see on any Spinfuel VAPE Best/Top article are devices that can be trusted to do the job they were designed to do, and they have value.
The 10 Starter Kits chosen for this piece are excellent devices that are worth every penny they sell for, and will satisfy the Vaper that owns one. Some of the 10 have been around for a while, many have been reviewed by our team of experts, and some are right now being reviewed (we’ve noted the ones under review below).
We know, and love, the SMOK Stick Prince, and it has made our list below. However, there is another “similar” product coming very soon, the SMOK Resa Stick that we believe will just might be worthy of being on this list. Although the new SMOK Resa Sub-Ohm Tank is currently under review here, and scoring very well indeed, we’ve not yet seen the Resa Stick, so it cannot be listed here. Unless we’ve spent time with a device, unless we know its worth, its value, and know it to be remarkable, it cannot be included just because it’s new, and it comes from an excellent manufacturer. It just wouldn’t be honest…
And in Conclusion...
Like we said at the top of the page, this list of Top Portable, Pocket-Friendly Vape Mods wasn’t easy to curate. And yes, there are one or two devices on here that might not make your own list. But we feel the list above represents a strong cross-section of mods that can appeal to beginners, experienced users, or any vaper looking for a stealthy, easily carried mod without sacrificing performance and satisfaction.
And, like we always say at the bottom of these lists, we’re 100% sure someone is going to disagree with us, so feel free to let us know what we missed..
