Vaporesso xros 3 mini pod review: Big performance in a Small frame
Vapresso xros 3 mini :an impressive device both for beginners and experienced vaper
The Vaporesso Xros series has earned a reputation among vapers for delivering good flavor performance in compact, straightforward, pocket-friendly designs.
We have reviewed the Vapresso Xros 3 pod and are now back with an in-depth review of the new Vapresso Xros 3 Mini pod system. I’ve been putting this slick little pod through its paces for over a week to see if it lives up to the hype.
In this hands-on review, I’ll share my daily experiences using the Xros 3 Mini and explore how it compares to the larger Xros 3. Read on to find out why this palm-sized pod has quickly become my new portable RDL favorite.
Xros Mini 3 Kit Unboxing
When you open the Vaporesso Xros 3 Mini Kit, you’ll find the device, a 0.6-ohm pod, a Type-C USB cable for fast charging, a user manual to guide you, and a warranty card for extra peace of mind.
The Vaporesso Xros 3 mini comes in 8 vibrant colors with cool gradients. I like the Icy Silver version I tested, but you can also get Sky Blue, Lemon Yellow, Lilac Purple, Aqua Green, Rose Pink, Phantom Gold, Phantom Green, Black, Navy Blue, and Space Grey. – Plenty of bold styles to choose from.
The color gradients are eye-catching, and the textured panel adds a little extra grip.
Inside the box, you’ll find:
- 1 Pcs Xros 3 mini battery unit
- 1 Pcs 0.6 ohm mesh pod (pre-installed)
- 1 Pcs USB-C charging cable
- 1 Pcs User manual and warranty cards
- 1 Pcs Reminder Card
The Xros 3 mini pods are also cross-compatible, so it’s excellent that Vaporesso kept all the pods and devices compatible through all the different versions so you can use any pod from the Xros family.
Xros Mini 3 Design and Build Quality
Xros 3 Mini is the latest compact pod system in Vaporesso’s famous Xros line, featuring an Axon chip and a 2ml e-liquid capacity. It retains the excellent adjustable airflow, top refill design, cross-compatible pods, and a 1000mAh battery. The durable zinc alloy frame feels sturdy despite the petite size, and the rounded edges sit comfortably in hand.
Almost all the features are the same as the Xros 3, and the only difference is the Xros 3 Mini in a more portable palm-sized format without a fire button.
Compared to the Xros 3, you can experience the same satisfying flavor and draw in an even more compact and simplified design.
Measuring 99.2mm x 23.6mm x 13.8mm, it’s slightly larger than Vaporesso’s LUXE Q but still comfortably portable, ultra-lightweight, and disappears effortlessly into a pocket or bag.
Despite its diminutive stature, the Xros 3 Mini still houses a sizable 1000 mAh battery to deliver serious vaping action for up to 48 hours; it also charges quickly with the Type-C port.
Because it’s pull-activated, there are no firing buttons on the outside, just clean lines, and strong magnets to hold the pod in place. And an LED battery indicator on the front that you can see while vaping to let you know the battery charge.
The side-fill pods connect securely and have clear windows so you can monitor juice levels. The adjustable airflow slider is also removed for ease of use. Overall, it is an A+ for style, but the hardware feels very solid and is designed for durability.
How to use Vaporess xros 3 mini pod
Using the Xros 3 Mini is a breeze. This simple pod system couldn’t be more accessible for newer vapers to use right out of the box. Just snap off the top cap, fill the pod with e-juice, snap the lid back on, slide the pod into place, and start inhaling.
The auto-draw activation is very responsive. It has a 0.6-ohm mesh pod to deliver a nice restricted direct lung hit. And since it’s cross-compatible with all Xros pods, you can also pick up higher-ohm ones for mouth-to-lung.
A large LED on the bottom of the battery section provides visual feedback on the current battery level. The LED glows different colors depending on the remaining charge:
- Green (70-100% charged)
- Blue (30-70% set)
- Red (0-30% set)
The LED also reacts differently depending on the current battery level. The LED will be green if the battery is 70-100% charged. The LED will be blue if it is 30-70% charged. And if it is between 0-30% set, the LED will be red.
The LED indicator makes it easy to monitor the battery level as you vape and ensure you don’t run out of charge unexpectedly. You can see at a glance when you need to recharge the battery.
Vaporesso Xros 3 mini Performance and Vapor Quality
Now let’s talk performance. I tested the xros three mini for over ten days, testing the 0.6 ohm pod with 50mg nic salts and 70/30 VG/PG e-juice. With the nic salts, the flavor popped amazingly, and the draw felt smooth yet satisfyingly firm even with higher nic.
Switching to freebase juice, vapor production increased significantly while delivering incredibly clean, accurate flavor. Seriously impressed!
While the draw is not adjustable, it provides a tighter RDL that I enjoyed. Remarkably, the pod showed zero drop-off after a whole week of use.
The XROS 3 and XROS 3 mini have a powerful 1000 mah battery, and it’s fantastic for the XROS 3 mini to have a 1000 mah battery stack in this slim body, ensuring long-lasting usage.
It also uses Triple S leakproof technology in these devices and the airflow pattern, ensuring a very leakproof experience. The new version of the XROS 3 mini offers a pulse mode that provides a lovely, warm, and saturated vape, perfect for those who enjoy a warm RDL vape.
The draw on the XROS 3 mini is as tight as a disposable.
Also, from personal experience, if you put a 1.2pod mouthpiece on a 0.6pod, you get a whole unrestricted DTL experience from the xros 3 mini (the one without the variable airflow). The longevity of the coils is also impressive.
How’s the Battery Life?
Given its tiny footprint, battery life is shockingly excellent. The 1000 mAh battery reliably provides all-day vaping for my moderate usage. Charging takes just 45 minutes with the Type-C port, And The LED meter makes it easy to monitor the charge level.
The battery performance is a massive advantage over similarly sized devices for a mini pod system.
Vaporesso Xros 3 Vs Xros 3 Mini
We had reviewed the xros 3 before. Compared to the xros 3 mini, the xros 3 comes with adjustable airflow; the xros 3 is almost an inch longer and has 3 air control adjustments to open it up to direct lung airflow.
And the xros 3 has a fire button, although it also has auto-draw. The XROS 3 mini is shorter, has no airflow control, and only auto-draws. But I prefer the smaller XROS Mini because its compact size makes it more comfortable to hold.
When I’m rocking on the Rdl with a 0.6 pod on the xros 3 mini pod device, the flavors are delicious. It has a slightly tighter draw than an xros 3 and is looser than an xros mini (the tightest airflow of the xros family).
However, including only one pod in the package, even at a lower price point, is a significant drawback and disappointment for customers.
The Mini version should come with the 1-ohm pod instead, considering that the 0.6-ohm pod doesn’t provide enough airflow and the constant output is not as good as the XROS 3.
The only problem I have with the xros 3 pod vape is that you can’t power lock the button on it, and the battery light shines a random rainbow, making it hard to tell what percentage the battery is at.
The XROS 3 mini doesn’t have this problem as it has no button, and the battery light is green, blue, or red.

Cons of the Xros 3 mini Pod

The Vaporesso XROS 3 mini is a stylish and affordable pod system with a powerful battery, featuring a 0.6-ohm mesh coil, a 1000mAh battery that lasts up to 48 hours, and a 2ml capacity with the easy-fill pod.
Comfortable mouthpieces with a leakproof design provide an enjoyable vaping experience, making it an excellent choice for auto-draw fans.
Is the Vaporesso Xros 3 Mini worth it? For pod vapers who value portability and taste above all else – absolutely. But the Xros 3 Mini stands out because of its incredibly saturated flavor and smooth draw.
The build quality is fantastic, and the battery life is solid, considering the compact size. As long as you don’t need airflow adjustability, but for restricted direct lung and loose MTL, the stock draw is excellent, in my opinion.
In conclusion, the Vaporesso Xros 3 Mini Pod Kit is an impressive device that delivers on all fronts. It’s an excellent choice for beginners and experienced vapers looking for a compact, reliable, and powerful pod system.
