Best Single 18650 Battery Mods 2019
Choosing a mod is a hard thing these days with so many options out there. So today I bring you a list to make your life easier, by focusing on the best single 18650 battery mods on the market currently.
Things are going smaller and smaller these days but there hasn’t been a ton of these mods released that were actually good sadly, but thankfully enough to give some options as most single battery mods are trending towards being 2×700 mods instead. Which can still take a single 18650 battery if you please. However here are the best options for single 18650 only mods for 2019.
Best Single 18650 Battery Mods – 1. Vaptio Wall Crawler
A small single 18650 mod with the “Pico” style meaning it has a battery cap raised above the top of the mod. Unlike the Pico mods, however, this features a nice bright large color front facing screen and a nice fire bar instead of a fire button all in a small compact package.
Also unlike the Pico series, it performs well in TC mode as well as power mode where the Pico series lacks in temp control mode. It also has quite a few more features as well like watt curve mode. If you like the Pico series, you’ll love the Wall Crawler Mod as it’s basically a better version of that and this mod can also take a 25 mm atomizer like the Pico 25 can where the original Pico was limited to 22 mm atomizers which are rare these days.
The Wall Crawler name comes from the design of the mod which has a design like a spiderman’s suit and is available in 4 colors blue, silver, red and black.
Vaptio Wall Crawler Pros & Cons
- Easy to fill and change the coil
- Cool look
- Can use tanks of up to 26.5 mm without overhang.
- Surprisingly powerful
- Small and super lightweight
- Instant firing
- Intuitive menu system
- Battery cape threading could be better.

Best Single 18650 Battery Mods – 2. Uwell Nunchaku
This single 18650 battery mod is a tube style mod which is pretty rare these days and is one of 2 on my list along with the Joyetech Ultex T-80 below.
There are a few other options out there like the Ehpro 101 which I found to be subpar and the Dicodes which I have never owned but are quite expensive. Uwell with this mod gives a premium feel at an affordable price as far as stick mods go.
It has a nice weight and build to it and is capable of 80-watt output. It does feature temp control mode for Ti, Ni200 and SS wire but no TCR mode and it doesn’t work well at all so not a good choice for temp control vapers. If you don’t care about temp control, however, it’s a great performing power mode that’s built really nice and looks great and quite comfortable and can handle a 25 mm atomizer without overhang.
It also helps that it comes in a kit with a matching tank and the tank itself is excellent making it one of the best kits as well. It’s available in 7 colors Iridescent (Rainbow), Purple, Sapphire Blue, Metallic Green, Full Black, Black and Gold and Stainless Steel.
Uwell Nunchaku Pros & Cons
- Beautiful look
- Great performance in power mode
- Menu system is easy and simple to use.
- Great threading and build quality
- Many color choices
- Quick fire
- Affordable price
- Temperature control does not work very well.

Best Single 18650 Battery Mods – 3. Battlestar Mini
This little single 18650 battery mod takes on the Battlestar name which was a dual 18650 mod from Smoant released a few years back and was a community favorite mod due to it’s heavy duty build quality and good performance and affordable price.
The Battlestar Mini follows in those footsteps as a solid built mod but for single battery and an 80 watt limit. It features a good size black and white screen and unlike the other box mods on this list, it’s a taller and slimmer mod with a magnetic backplate for the battery over the screw off cap style.
It also works well in temp control mode and power mode and is available in 2 colors, Black and Yellow.
Battlestar Mini Pros & Cons
- Very compact, clean and ergonomic
- It’s beautifully designed.
- Great ramp time
- Able to hold 24mm tank without overhang
- Great build quality
- DVW mode (custom curves)
- Bright and big display
- Very easy and simple to use
- Little play in battery door
- Low amp limit

Best Single 18650 Battery Mods – 4. Joyetech Ultex T80
Similar in performance and style to the Nunchaku mod above, this single 18650 tube style regulated mod doesn’t offer much difference than the Nunchaku does.
It’s a good mod for power mode but lacking in temp control and also the tank paired with this mod is awful and not worth buying in a kit. The mod, however, is pretty good and if you don’t like the plain style of the Uwell nunchaku mod, this one has a little bit extra to it.
It’s available in 5 colors Dazzling (rainbow), Sky Blue, Gold, Silver, and Matte Black.
Joyetech Ultex T80 Pros & Cons
- Ergonomically designed
- Multi protections for safe vaping
- With 0.49 inch intuitive OLED screen
- Firmware upgradeable
- 2A quick charge
- Very compact and powerful
- Price is a bit steep.

I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
