Since the original iPower and Melo 3 were shipped to us I have purchased a couple more; I had a white one and picked up a wood grain and a bronze. I plan to do the same with the iPower Nano, only this time I snagged a bronze one from the shipment. Despite owning more mods and atomizers than I’ll ever have time to use, there are certain devices that stand tall among the others. I instantly took a liking to the iPower, and now the iPower Nano. If I was asked to design a mod, the iPower is what I would have designed.
The size, battery capacity, dedicated ‘mode’ button, and everything else about the iPower speaks to a mod that was well thought out and executed brilliantly. The iPower Nano, although incredibly tiny, is not only adorable, it’s just as worthwhile as the iPower. It is the perfect companion to the iPower, and I would have loved to see eLeaf bundle the two together in one box. Sure, the battery doesn’t last nearly as long as we’d like, the 40-watt cap is somewhat limiting for some users, but it vapes like a charm. I recommend the Melo 3 Nano as the best tank for iPower Nano. This is not a primary mod for most vapers, but for a new vaper it would ten times better than a cig-a-like. Lastly, owning the iPower/Melo 3 and the iPower Nano/Melo 3 Nano feels right.” Istick Power Nano by Eleaf.

In the category mini-box very fashionable at the moment, Eleaf shone until now by his absence. It was all the more unfortunate that, somewhere, it was this manufacturer who had designed the first small boxes. We remember indeed, not without some nostalgia, the Istick 20W and especially the tiny Istick Mini 10W who had surprised more than one during their releases. With the advent of a handful of boxs of small size but higher power, Eleaf had missed the first train but is catching up today with this well named Power Nano Istick. Offered at a price of 48.90 €, accompanied by a clearomiser Melo 3 of the same brand that suits him rather well, it's a safe bet that the beautiful will soon be available by itself at a much lower price, around 35 / 36 €, which will give it an increased competitiveness compared to the competition that does not spare its efforts at the moment. It is available in a nice range of colors, provided you find them of course. But when we call ourselves Eleaf, we come out with a little new material a week (I'm barely exaggerating) and that in addition we have a flattering reputation of reliability coupled with price floors, a- are we still afraid of facing any competition?

Rating of the vapelier as to feelings quality: 3.7 / 5. Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality. A mini-box must be pleasant to watch and, if possible, sexy enough. This was the case of the Mini Volt or, more recently, the Rusher. The Power Nano is not unpleasant to watch but it does not reach the aesthetic level of its competitors better balanced but, it is true, more expensive too. By choosing a PowerPool Ipower from 1100mAh, the Power Nano makes an intermediate choice, below the 1500mAh of the Evic Basic, the 1300mAh of the Mini Volt or the 1400mAH of the Mini Target. Autonomy therefore suffers fatally but it is also the law of the genre in the category. We do not buy this type of box to be sure to vape two days without recharging. The integration of LiPo battery better autonomy requires a change of format, we were able to power with a Rusher that caps at 2300mAH but is 1cm higher and 2mm wider. An aluminum alloy body, rounded at both ends, has a very pleasant shape in hand. The paint is not rubberized but it still has a great softness to the touch. Top-cap and bottom-cap are, on the other hand, hard plastic, probably for reasons of weight maintenance. And, indeed, the girl does not weigh much on the scales. The main façade hosts a small but legible OLED screen. I found, however, that the contrast could have been higher so as to see in the light of day. Above the screen, we have a round plastic switch, a little rattling in its housing, but responsive to support. The control buttons are three in number: the [-], the [+] and a small button located between the two that can change the modes on the fly.
This practice, usual at the manufacturer, has proven itself in terms of ergonomics even if the size of the set makes the operation quite dangerous for those with big fingers. Obligation to use the nail of your choice to change mode, it is not the most practical but it is done nevertheless. The Top-cap welcomes the 510 connection whose positive part is mounted on a hard but efficient spring.
No problem screwing, atos the most capricious fit well. By cons, despite the presence of notches on the connector suggesting the possibility of installing an atomizer taking its air by the 510, I doubt the effectiveness of the system, noting that the atos are very flush with the top-cap. The bottom-cap hosts, for its part, the micro USB charging socket.
