The Xros Mini is the newest pod in the Xros line, and it has several specifications that will get MTL users quite excited. It has outstanding battery life, which is its number one selling point, and it is regulated by the Xros DNA chip, making it very responsive. MTL lovers are going to fall in love with this vape.

Vaporesso Xros Mini Review

There are more pod mods out there than anyone knows what to do with. Few mods have zero flaws, and this was one of them. There is no trouble with the airflow, coil, flavor, or other areas that affect the vaping experience.

Vaporesso Xros Mini Colors

This vape is ideally suited for beginner vapers who want something simple. It has no power buttons because it is an auto-draw vape. Vapes do not get simpler. Additionally, the exceptional quality of this device only serves to make it better suited for people moving up from disposable vapes.

Vapor Production

Unfortunately, this device, as it comes in the starter kit, will not produce a lot of vapor. It is a mouth-to-lung device with a high resistance coil, so do not expect it to win contests with a box mod.

Safety Features

This device is packed with all the usual features needed to enjoy a safe experience. Additionally, the vape has SSL Leak-Resistant Technology. The prevention of leakages helps to reduce the chances of there being anything that obstructs the connection between the mod and the pod.

  • 1.2 ohm Xros Pod
  • Type-C USB Cable
  • User Manual
  • Warranty Card

Vaporesso Xros Mini Starter Kit

The only criticism of this device is not the device itself but the starter kit. It comes with one pod. It would have been better if they had included a 0.8 ohm pod or another 1.2 ohm pod.

Internal Building Quality and Design

There is nothing to complain about here. It is small, lightweight, and portable, which is everything a pod mod should be. The studded body is a good feature that allows the user to maintain a solid grip. Some users may not like the USB port at the bottom, but there was nowhere else to put it.

Vaporesso Xros Mini Orange

There is no adjustable airflow, but there are two holes in the battery piece through which air travels. The draw can be tightened up by sticking a finger over one of the holes.


The vape has a 1,000 mah internal battery with USB-C fast charging. It charges in 30 to 35 minutes tops. The battery is the best feature of this vape because it lasts up to two days.

So anyone who will be away from a charging port for a couple of days and wants an MTL vape that does not need to be recharged all the time should consider buying this device.

Battery Indicator Light

There is a battery light in the middle of the device that shines green for high, blue for medium, and red for low.

Vaporesso Xros Mini Pod

The pods hold 2 ml of capacity, which is pretty good for a pod with a 1.2 ohm coil. It has clear plastic so that it is not hard to monitor the juice levels, and it has a tapered mouthpiece.

Vaporesso Xros Mini Open

The mouthpiece pulls off to reveal a top fill port with a silicone covering that prevents juice from seeping out. It is sufficiently large enough so that the user will not have to use a syringe to refill the pod.

Compatible Juices

This high resistance coil does not burn too hot, so sweet, high nicotine 50/50 propylene glycol to vegetable glycerin nicotine liquids should do the trick.

The Coil

The coil does an excellent job sucking every bit of flavor from the nicotine juice. No matter what kind of juice was put inside, the flavor was fantastic. Using the nicotine liquids recommended above will result in a fun vape that satisfies your nicotine cravings.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

This pod should last over a week if adequately primes. To adequately prime the coil, fill the pod, replace the mouthpiece, and let it sit for five to ten minutes.

During this time, the coil’s wicking will saturate and reduce the chances of dry hits occurring.

How to Use the Vaporesso Xros Mini

Aside from the instructions below, the user needs to know that it is buttonless, contrary to what the manual says. Aside from the issue with there being only one pod, that is the only problem
with the starter kit. The manual says that there is a firing button, but obviously, there is not one.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Vaporesso Xros Mini Colors

  • Remove the mouthpiece from the pod
  • Insert the bottle nozzle into the fill port and fill the pod
  • Replace the mouthpiece and wait five to ten minutes for the wicking to saturate
  • Take a drag to activate the device.

Competing Products

Vaporesso Xros Mini vs. Joyetech Ego Pod

There are many differences between these mods. The most obvious difference is in the pods. The Ego uses a drip tip style mouthpiece, and it is bottom filled.

Joyetech Ego Pod

Bottom-filled mods are vulnerable to leaking, which is one reason why the Xros Mini is a slightly better device. However, the Joyetech Ego is not bad. It offers a solid vaping experience, and the kit comes with a spare nicotine juice bottle.

Vaporesso Xros Mini vs. Lost Vape Lyra Pod

The Lost Vape Lyra has a lot going for it. It is a 20 watt mod with adjustable settings, and the starter kit comes with a 0.6 ohm mesh coil and a 1.4 ohm MTL coil.

VD Lost Vape Lyra

It also has a top fill port, uses a firing button, and even has a lanyard attachment. The Lyra is an overall better device and is not that much more challenging to use than the Xros Mini.

Frequently Asked Questions About These Products

  • How Long Do Xros Mini Pods Last?

    The pods should last one to two weeks, possibly shorter or longer, depending on how well they are primed and how often they are used. Coils that are used moderately and well-primed can be expected to last one to two weeks or longer.

  • What Juice Does Xros Mini Use?

    These coils best handle 50/50 liquids, and the user can put any flavor inside. This is the primary advantage of choosing a pod mod like this over a disposable vape.

  • How Much is a Xros Mini?

    As of mid-October 2022, the Xros Mini was selling for $21.99 on Element Vape.

Final Thoughts

Once again, there is very little to fault with this pod mod. The only problem is that the starter kit comes with one pod. They should have included another lower resistance pod.

This is an excellent pod mod for people who no longer want to use disposable vapes despite those problems. The vaping experience is flawless, and the device is easy to use and is dependable. There is nothing more one could want from a pod mod.

If you have used this pod mod and want to chime in, feel free to do so. The opinions of our readers are always welcomed.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.

    Hi, I got one of these guys to replace my broken Renova zero (which i absolutely loved) but the device produces WAY more vapor to the point where I struggle to take a drag! could I use normal juice instead of nic salts in here?? it’s extremely harsh as is. or do you have another solution for me? I see that the coil is 0.8ohm, so im assuming normal juice would be ok? I cant find anything on this anywhere on the internet…
