Osmall: the first purchase for those who want to start vaping with Vaporesso
In a particularly difficult moment for the entire world population, I want to start this article with my sincere wishes that the whole planet in full Covid-19 emergency, can recover as soon as possible, leaving the extremely difficult situation in which it concerns. Stay home and everything will be fine!
Today I’m here to talk to you about a new Vaporesso product, the Osmall pod kit. It is a super cheap device designed for those who want to make their first experience with an e-cig, and therefore it was built with a very specific focus: to be a device with absolute simplicity of use.
As usual, I begin by presenting the contents of the package in my possession. I remember that this is a sample version which may differ slightly from the commercial version.
IN THE BOX
1 x OSMALL MOD
1 x 1.2 ohm Regular POD
1 x USB Cable
1 x User Manual
1 x Warranty Card
DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
Once I open the product packaging, I immediately find my black Osmall that looks like a medium sized USB router. The corners are slightly rounded, as you can see in the photo above, and visually the result is undoubtedly pleasant, thanks also to the textured processing of the surface. From a construction point of view, Osmall immediately lets us understand the target users for which it is intended: the mod is in fact made of plastic material and I add cheap, which makes it very light.
As well done and finished, I must say that it does not convey a sense of solidity and durability over time.
Ergonomics are good and also the shape of the cartridge, following those already seen in other Vaporesso products, guarantees a good feeling in contact with the user’s lips. The pod fits on the battery very simply thanks to a system of two magnets which, with the right force, anchor it to the mod.
The pod mod has a length of about 84.2 mm, a width of 26.5 mm for a thickness of about 13.4 mm. The total weight, listen carefully, is only 23 grams! I don’t think I’m wrong in asserting that it is the lightest pod system on the market. The cartridge has a capacity of 2 ml and is equipped with a 1.2 ohm coil whose absorbent surface is a mix of fax cotton and non-woven fabrics.
Osmall is equipped with the proprietary Omni Board Mini chipset which is equipped with five protection functions: short circuit protection, overcharge protection, over discharge protection, overtime protection and low voltage protection. There is a small indicator light that comes on at each puff and flashes repeatedly when the battery is low. Unfortunately, there is no indication whatsoever about the remaining battery level.
As regards the user more strictly, it must be said that there is no setting and adjustment option to be done. The vape is fixed at 11 watts and the draw is automatic. The mod is always active and therefore the only operation required of the vaper is the e-liquid refill.
The Osmall battery has a rather limited capacity of 350 mAh which certainly cannot guarantee long autonomy in vaping (about 2 ml of e-liquid); it obviously gains the full charging time of the device which does not exceed 45 minutes (when it is being charged the light is on and when the charge is completed the light is off).
COILING, WICKING AND FILLING
Osmall has a refillable pod with 1.2 ohm resistance and 2 ml capacity. The refill of the cartridge is carried out very simply by removing the silicone cap placed on the side which gives access to the e-liquid refill hole (large enough for any type of bottle). The cartridge semi-transparent smoked finish allows you to easily check the level of e-liquid loading.
PERFORMANCES AND FLAVOUR
The aromatic performances of Osmall are, against all odds and expectations, truly amazing! I discovered an unexpected aromaticity and roundness of taste, together with an always clean and well-faceted aroma which, for such a cheap product, is anything but to be taken for granted. The vape is pure MTL and it must be said that, despite its only 11 watts, the hit in the throat is also more than discreet. The airiness is not adjustable but the draw in my opinion is perfectly calibrated, neither too closed nor too open for a MTL vape.
Vaporesso creates a minimal product in every sense, essential, simplified to the maximum and intended for those who are about to purchase an e-cig for the first time. The extreme simplicity of use, however, combines a pod with excellent performance. Overall, we can be more than satisfied with a device that, it should be remembered, does not cost more than 15 euros.
Osmall is a very valid product for those who want to enter the world of e-cig.
