Hello everyone, this is going to be a little different to what we are used to over here on Aly’s Assumptions: I’m going to be doing a comparison! HealthCabin reached out to me to see if I would try it out and of course, I said yes. Because who doesn’y like trying out new things?
Today, we’re going to be looking at the comparison between the Manik and the Manik Mini both by Wotofo. As I’ve not reviewed the latter before, I’ve also included a little summary to start with.
Manik Mini Summary
A small, lightweight pocket friendly MTL device is what I would say when describing the Manik Mini. It is a solid addition to the Manik family, most certainly aimed more towards though who are new users or those looking for a very simple set up. Overall, the mod seems well made, the leather look is still very popular but this seems to be a lot nicer than some of the others I’ve seen.
It does have one major drawback for me though – replaceable pods. Why? Well I personally don’t see the attraction for the extra waste produced by them really. A lot of the smaller MTL devices still offer the replaceable coils, so I’m not sure why Wotofo chose to go down the pod road here. On the upside it is draw activated, so no buttons to press when drawings on it but there is a button for menu changes and you can set the wattage to your liking. A massive plus in my book! The flavour from both coils is solid, I didn’t get any leaking and they lasted quite some time. I was verging on 10 days before i wanted to change them over.

It’s a bit like comparing apples to oranges here as one is DTL and the other is MTL, due to this there is no clear winner between them. One just may be more suited to your individual vaping needs. It’s down to personal preference really, personally I prefer to use the Manik Mini when out and about for a stealthier vape and the Manik Mod when I’m throwing caution to the wind. The original Maink Mod offers more in terms of coils and it comes with top filling, if I HAD to chose between them that would probably be the selling point for me but the Mini is still a solid option for MTL lovers.
