One of the more popular mods at the end of 2018 has been nanofied into a new device. However does the Vaporesso Luxe Nano serve to be the best small mod on the market or does it lose it’s luxury in the process?
The Vaporesso Luxe was a big hit with vapers when it launched back in November. It offered the Vaporesso quality and combined it with a wonderful new tank and a very good chip set. That may not come as a surprise, Vaporesso mods have always been popular within the market due to the reliability that one will give you. So it was very interesting to see them release a nano version of the kit, all that power compacted into a small device and matching tank. Given the large display , haptic buttons and vibration design, how does the Luxe nano bring all of that in a much smaller package? Before we get into all of that, let’s go through the details first.

About the Luxe Nano
The Luxe Nano is a 2500 mAh internal battery device capable of 80w maximum output, modelled after its bigger brother in both design and functionality. The device has the curved body design with side fire button, large coloured screen and 3 touch control panels which act like buttons on the bottom of the device, with a USB port for charging. The device comes in a range of designs much like the original and sits at only 40.3 mm tall.
Operating the device is done through the fire button with 3 clicks to lock the touch buttons and 5 clicks to turn the device on/off. There is vibration feedback on the panels to register control and also when the device is turning on/off. The large colour screen comes displayed with wattage/ mode / ohms / puff count and battery indicators with a time setting also. There is an added time and date screen-saver when not in use. Going into the menu system is achieved by pressing the V button at the bottom 3 times to bring the detailed menu up. It gives you the options of Variable wattage, Super player (low resistance coils .05 and under), Temperature control, Variable voltage, Bypass mode, Control Current and DIY (advanced power control) and settings. Each option is selected with the menu V button rather than the fire button, which is used to instead take you back out the menu.
The mod comes with the Skrr mini tank, which comes compatible with standard Skrr coils, has 2 mil capacity and sits around 24mm. For the purpose of this review, I want to focus on the mod rather than the tank, check out the sections below to see why.back to menu ↑

Luxe Nano Pros
The first place to start with the Luxe nano is on the looks of the device and this device is stunning. From the full colour screen that is nice and clear, to the overall shimmer of the glass style design, the mod looks that little bit more special compared to others on the market. The simplistic design with the touch panel control means the whole device is sleek and elegant, and the screen provides a striking contrast to the overall look. Using the device is nice and easy, with the lock functionality a fantastically thought out feature, allowing you to turn off the touch control whilst you vape to prevent any changes being made unexpectedly. I will also say on this front that the lack of a vibration feedback from the buttons when locked is amazing also, as I find when mods do include that, it can be quite annoying. The mod is extremely responsive with the brilliant Omni chip inside and the device feels quick to use without any lag when entering the menu system. Another feature I loved with this was the estimated charge time when plugged in, giving you a good indication of when it would be fully charged, at around 2 and a half hours at empty to full.
Going inside the device and the vast menu system options is another welcome and surprising feature to be honest. Normally you don’t expect a device to come packed with features such as the super player mode in there but it offers a vast array of customisable options to vape how you want. The menu system is easy to navigate and the fire button to come back out again is very well thought of. Battery life can be around 3-4 hours with regular use which is a good amount of vaping for only 2500 mAh so again a nice feature from the Omni chip. The device overall feels light and compact in the hand and very comfortable to hold and fire.

Luxe Nano Cons
To some extent, some of the flaws with the nano can be very easily rectified but I will try to explain what I mean as I go through rather than be overly critical, it will make sense hopefully!
The first flaw I found with the device is that even though it packs these features into the device, they aren’t all practical. For example the Bypass mode can drain the battery quite quickly and can drop from around 40-20% within a few pulls. So on a small battery device like this, it wouldn’t be advisable to be vaping using that feature. Similarly with the super player mode, the lack of available power may make that mode redundant to all but the most experienced vapers who may well be using mechs for that sort of builds. So to get around this, simply don’t use those sorts of modes. The next flaw with the device is the fact it is a fingerprint magnet which I guess comes with the design of the device. You can’t have a luxury looking device without this issue so hardly a hang up for the device. I found that at higher wattages, the heat from the coil dissipates into the mod to a degree that heats the mod up a little. This is never a good thing for me but using a lower powered tank on top removes this issue, which is a shame that it came with the QF coils rather than the ceramic coil for the tank.
The other flaw with the kit is the tank itself, the Skrr mini. Mainly as the tank itself is highly impractical in the way its designed. As the coils themselves are so big and the tank is so small, the heat has nowhere to go and it heats the whole tank up quite a bit as a result. This is not to say that the original version isn’t good, far from it as you can see from my review HERE. However shrinking such a big tank down to that extent really doesn’t work and ideally you want to be avoiding the tank if you can.

As internal battery devices go, the Luxe Nano is a fantastic piece of kit. Offering a fantastic design, great options/functionality and a good battery life. With well thought out features taken from its bigger brother, the Luxe nano is a great little mod and I can see it being a big fit with vapers. That being said, avoid the Skrr mini tank inside the box, certainly buy the full size version but use a lower powered coil tank on top of this one. I have tried a fair few internal battery devices on the market today and this ranks among the best for me, such a brilliantly made little device. If you want to use this with a MTL tank for example then I highly recommend picking one up.
The Luxe Nano manages to do the impossible and still deliver despite its smaller size. The Luxe nano might be small in nature but it provides a very big experience.
The Vaporesso Luxe Nano is a fantastic little kit that combines an amazing design and great functionality. The Skrr mini can be avoided but with a low powered tank on top, the luxe nano may well prove to be an excellent addition to your daily routine.
- Beautiful design
- Functionality is fantastic
- Wide range of options
- Good battery life / charging time
- Skrr mini is poorly thought out
- The mod can heat up when used with high watt tanks
- Not all features are practical
- Can be a fingerprint magnet.
