Additionally, this unit has a pretty impressive battery life despite its small size and inexpensive price. Read on to find out if this is the perfect pen for you!

What Сomes in the Kit?

Mini CE3 Kit Review

The mini CE3 kit can be purchased in several different colors. The battery comes in black and silver for vapers with more traditional styles. It also comes in bright blue, hot pink, and a sleek copper. No matter what your preference is, you will be able to find a look that you like! With a purchase of the mini CE3 510 Oil Vape Kit comes a series of goodies, like a charger to give vapers the full experience. Here is what is included in the kit:

  • Protective metal case
  • 280 mAh Power battery
  • Ready to fill 510 oil tank (1 mL capacity)
  • USB charger

All of the accessories – charger, battery, tank – fit into the case, and like the pen, it is super thin and light. This makes it easy to carry around all day. It also makes it more inconspicuous as it fits easily into a pocket or purse. It is honestly amazing that the kit includes all of these things at such a low price. If a user is willing to pay a bit extra, they can get an extension kit. This extra kit allows users to turn their mini CE3 510 vape pen into a stylus that can be used with smart devices! How cool is that?

Filling and Using the CE3

The 1 mL tank inside the mini CE3 510 is relatively easy to fill. Some people wish that the tank was capable of holding more medium. Unfortunately, there will always be a trade-off between size and tank capacity. If the tank were bigger, the product would not be as skinny and light! This vape kit is also very easy to use. The battery takes oil cartridges that are easy to pop in and out. It also automatically turns on during use.

This saves the vaper the frustration of having to figure out whether their unit is on or not. All vapers have to do is inhale, and they will get to taste their quality vapor. As an added bonus, this unit comes with an automatic shut-off session. This helps protect its battery life, and also the unit from overheating. The mini CE3 510 kit also has an indicator light that can relay information to users about battery life. It also glows when vapers take a hit of the pen. This looks especially cool while vaping at night. During this vape session, the plastic mouthpiece is very comfortable. When your session is over, it is also fairly easy to clean.

What Is the Vape Quality Like From CE3 Vape Pen?

This unit uses a mini CE3 clearomizer, which works great with oils. Users can also see their oil through the clear tank, so they know when it is time to refill. (Plus, it looks cool!) The vape resistance in this pen is great. Vapers can expect a resistance within 1.8 ohm and 2.5 ohm. This wide breadth means that this pen will please vapers who like both high and low resistance.

Be warned– it does not come with sub-ohm vaping capabilities. The traditional ohm vape quality is good enough to make up for this though. Vapor is always smooth, thick, and cooled down to an optimal temperature before it reaches the mouth. This unit is probably not the best at making large clouds. That being said, it does produce a pretty full-bodied cloud. There is always enough to do neat tricks with and impress friends.

Competitors of the CE3 Vape Pen?

Bug RX Oil Vape Pen

The Bug RX Oil pen has a different aesthetic than the CE3 510. It only comes in silver and black, unlike the large variety of colors that the CE3 comes in. It appears sleek rather than edgy, which some people prefer, and others do not. Both pens can handle thick oil and produce high-quality vapor.

The Bug does have .2 larger of a tank than the mini CE3 510. This does not make a huge difference in the number of sessions the oil in the unit lasts though. The Bug also does have a slightly longer battery life, but this does not come without a fee. The Bug RX is much more expensive than the mini CE3 510. This makes it less ideal for a beginner, as it is a larger investment.

Trap 450 All in One Oil Vape Pen Kit

The Trap 450 is extremely similar to the mini CE3 510 in size and appearance. Both the CE3 510 and the Trap 450 come with a 1 mL tank. One difference is that this unit has a 450 mAh battery (hence the name). Another is that the Trap 450 has three different temperature settings and a pre-heat mode.

Migvapor Trap 450

Some users may prefer this, but others may find it confusing. It also specifies that it has an easy top-fill design. However, because of all of these features, it is, again, more expensive than the CE3. Like the Bug RX, it also only comes in black or silver. Unfortunately, the Trap 450 does not come with a protective case. This makes it harder to carry around.

Positives and Negatives

Final Verdict on the Mini CE3 Kit

The mini CE3 510 Oil Vape Pen Kit is all in all worth the money. The kit comes with everything a user needs for a great vaping experience. The metal case that the kit comes in is an added plus for protecting the unit and vaping accessories. There are not better vape pens than the CE3 510 on the market for a lower cost.

This vape pen is insanely small, light as a feather, and thin as a pencil. So is the case! This is perfect for carrying around all day. The mini CE3 510 is probably best for beginner vapers who are just trying out the hobby. It produces a decent, smooth vapor that makes enough of a cloud try and do tricks. The cheap price means that if they end up not liking vaping though, they can just toss this unit. It is a low investment and great for experimenting.

That being said, this unit does work well and can please more experienced vapers. It does not produce as high a quality of vapor than more expensive units, but it still works well. This might be a good vape pen kit for experienced vapers who are going on a trip and want to leave their expensive unit at home. Go ahead and purchase the mini CE3 510 if you think it is the right vape pen for you!

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
