The Kros Mini is another high-capacity disposable from Kros who are aiming to disrupt the disposable market.
The Kros Mini is a slightly smaller capacity device than the recently reviewed Kros Nano.
It features a rechargeable 650mAh battery and can deliver 4000+ puffs per device.
It comes pre-filled with 10ml of salt-based nicotine juice at 5% (50mg) and uses a 1.2Ω Mesh Coil to deliver a punchy flavor.
The Kros Mini is available in a choice of 7 flavors: Grape Ice, Peach Ice, Watermelon Candy, Mixed Berries, Sour Apple Ice, Straw Kiwi Ice, and Spearmint.

Design & Style
The Kros Mini has a very similar design aesthetic to its sibling, the ‘Nano.’
However, the Mini has a slimmer and more elongated form factor. This makes it a far more pocket-friendly disposable and, I think, slightly more comfortable to hold in the hand.
I also think it looks a little more sleek and stylish with a Black and colored design. It has the same matte-colored finish on the body’s main part, which stands out against the black base and top section.
The matte finish has a soft rubber texture, making it grippy in the hand, aided by the ribbed front and back panels.
Just like the Nano, things are kept to a minimum with the branding, but this time the ‘Kros Mini’ is printed on the glossy black plastic front, and the flavor and nicotine percentage or on the colored side panel.
The mouthpiece is the same duck-billed style, but as a slimmer, taller device, it feels a little more comfortable in the mouth.
The LED status light, airflow hole, and USB-C port can still be found on the device’s base. This keeps the rest of the aesthetic of the device relatively clean looking.
Overall, Kros has done an excellent job with the build quality and design of the Mini. I prefer its form factor to that of the Nano and some other boxier disposables, and I like the fact that it’s easier to slip into a pocket. I also think it looks a little more attractive.
A very clean and refreshing spearmint flavor. It’s like popping some fresh mints in your mouth; it leaves you with a clean and light palate. In addition, there’s a good balance of icy effects from the cooling without being too overpowering, which can often be the case with mint flavors.
A really good and solid grape flavor. It’s deep, juicy, and tastes as good as any other I’ve tried. There’s a good amount of cooling, but it doesn’t defect from the flavor and overall vape quality.
This is an interesting one. It tastes just like fuzzy watermelon candies. Right from the offset, you are created by the sweet watermelon flavor, but it’s light and fizzy, just like candy. There’s a touch of cooling to give it a lift. A very refreshing fruity vape, one of my favorites here.
A very lovely juicy peach flavor that I feel leans more towards the candy peach taste. But it’s very nice with the right amount of sweetness and relatively light and refreshing. The balance of the cooling agent is just right, giving it a lift without being too strong.
Performance & Verdict
The Kros Mini is almost exactly the same as the Nano when it comes to performance, and that’s a good thing.
The auto-draw trigger works well, and the 1.2Ω Mesh Coil delivers an instant hit. Like with the Nano, I had no issues with any of the devices I tried. They were all pretty flawless with performance.
The airflow is pretty identical to the Nano, giving you a medium to tight MTL draw. It’s incredibly smooth and perfect for this style of the disposable device.
The flavors are equally as impressive as the range we tested with the Kros Nano. All deliver punchy, vibrant flavor without being too sweet.
Kros has made a conscious effort to have different flavor profiles with the different forms of disposable. So if you love a flavor from the other range, sadly you can’t currently get it in this form factor.
That being said, there are some excellent options on offer here. I particularly loved the ‘Watermelon Candy.’
The ‘Peach Ice’ & ‘Grape Ice’ are as solid as any others I’ve tried, and the ‘Spearmint’ is an entirely different flavor profile from the rest. Ideal for those that love a menthol vape.
That being said, I hope Kros decide to expand the flavor profiles and cover both disposable styles with the same options, as I really prefer the form factor of this ‘Mini’ to the ‘Nano.’
The Kros Mini has the same sized internal battery at 650mAh, which does a stellar job of lasting. The 10ml of pre-filled juice also seems to go all the way to delivering the advertised 4000 puffs per bar, which is excellent.
I love that Kros has entered the market with two excellent performing disposables that are on par with the best out there. I have no hesitation recommending them. It really comes down to the type of form factor you prefer. Whether it’s the slightly higher capacity and boxier Nano or the slimmer and more pocket-friendly Mini – either is a great choice.
