Thanks for stopping by and welcome to Vaping Hardware! Today we’re reviewing the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable vape, the brand new release from the popular Puffmi vape brand.
Puffmi are relatively new to the vaping scene, however they’ve released several highly regarded disposables since their launch in 2021 and subsequently amassed a loyal following in the vaping community – myself included!
However, as fantastic as they are, we’re not here to talk about those disposables. Today we’re taking a deep dive into their highly anticipated new release, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable.
Puffmi were kind enough to send us four of their MeshBox Mini flavor range to put to the test, and I’ve been vaping them exclusively for the past three weeks to bring you this review.
In a nutshell, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini is a disposable vape with a 1,200 puff capacity, 3.5ml of e-juice and a 550mAh non-rechargeable battery. It’s available in a 50mg/ml nicotine strength, making it a great option if you’re hoping to replace a heavy smoking habit.
The flavor range is excellent, with a total of 15 different flavors to choose from. On top of that, it’s easily the most compact disposable we’ve ever seen! We’ll cover this in more detail as you read on, but the MeshBox Mini is a seriously tiny disposable!
It’s important to mention, the MeshBox Mini version we’re reviewing is the non-TPD compliant US version, in part due to the 3.5ml e-juice capacity. However, Puffmi have also released a TPD compliant version of the MeshBox Mini in the UK!
The UK version holds 2ml of e-juice and comes in a 20mg/ml nicotine strength, for a total of 600 puffs. Just keep in mind as you read this review that we’re talking about the US version of the MeshBox Mini.
But anyway, that’s enough of me waffling on – let’s get stuck into the full Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable review!

What’s in the Box?
Just like the disposable itself, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini packaging is tiny.
The packaging is color-coded to match the flavor of the disposable inside, and all the information you’re likely to need is printed clearly and easy to read.
The front of the packaging features a picture of the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable, the flavor name, puff capacity and nicotine strength. The usual nicotine warning is also prominently displayed.
The left-facing side of the box displays another warning, a barcode and the country of origin (China).
On the right facing side you’ll find the nicotine strength, the coil type (mesh coil) and a reflective box with a black square in the centre. I’ve no idea what this reflective section is supposed to be – drop me a comment at the bottom of this post if you know!
Finally, the reverse of the packaging displays the e-juice capacity, nicotine strength, battery capacity and ingredients. The manufacturer name, address and website URL are also displayed, as well as further product and nicotine warnings.
The only thing missing is the PG/VG ratio of the e-juice, which to be fair is very rarely listed on disposable packaging. It’s a slight pain for those of us dealing with any form of PG intolerance, but it’s not a deal breaker.
Inside the packaging, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable is sealed within a protective, foil wrapper. To get at the disposable, just tear the wrapper open and it will slide right out.
As with the majority of disposables, you’ll need to remove the silicone plug from the mouthpiece …
… and the protective sticker at the base of the MeshBox Mini before you can take your first puff.
After that there’s nothing left to do but vape and enjoy!
Puffmi MeshBox Mini | Design & Appearance
In terms of design and appearance, Puffmi have designed the MeshBox Mini to be simple, convenient and easy to use. Perfect if you’re a new vaper looking for a disposable with zero learning curve and you want something you can just pick up and vape with no fuss.
It’s auto-draw, which means you just puff on the mouthpiece to activate the coil and inhale the vapor. There are no buttons, no adjustable airflow or wattage to fiddle with or worry about, and the auto-draw worked perfectly across all four disposables I tested.
It’s non-rechargeable, so there’s no charging port and the only real ‘feature’ is the standard LED puff indicator on the base of the MeshBox Mini next to the single airflow hole.
It’s simplicity at its best.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on the larger, feature-packed disposables. In fact I’m a big fan of them! We’ve tried some incredibly innovative, ground-breaking disposables this year, like the OXBAR & Pod Juice Magic Maze Pro and/or Lost Vape Orion Bar 10000 (to name just two!) and they’re both absolute beasts!
Larger, rechargeable disposables with display screens, variable airflow and even in some cases variable wattage are becoming more popular by the day and it’s a trend I’m more than happy to get behind.
However, there’s a lot to be said for the simple, no-frills, ‘pick up and vape’ style disposables that started it all, and the Puffmi MeshBox Mini is exactly that.
You know exactly what you’re getting and you’re getting exactly what you expect.
What did come as a surprise though, was how incredibly compact and lightweight the MeshBox Mini is! With measurements of 59mm in height, 35mm in width and 14mm in depth, it’s by far the smallest disposable we’ve ever been asked to review.
It’s so small I could comfortably fit all four of the disposables Puffmi sent us in one pocket!
The incredibly compact size and lightweight design also make the MeshBox Mini perfect if you prefer to be discreet when vaping. It’s comfortable to hold and can be concealed in the palm of your hand without drawing unwanted attention.
In terms of aesthetics, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable resembles a tiny box-mod, with smooth, rounded edges and a protruding mouthpiece. The top section of the disposable (including the mouthpiece) is a smooth, glossy Polycarbonate and the bottom section is a darker, matte-finish metallic material.
The disposables are color-coded to match the flavor, so the Fizz Cherry is a dark pink/red, the Mint Ice is a light green and so on. Several of the flavors are very similar (near identical) in color though, for example the Pink Lemonade and Peach Ice.
Branding is fairly simple, with “Puffmi MeshBox Mini” and the flavor name printed on the front of the disposable in white lettering.
Overall I absolutely love the size, design and appearance of the MeshBox Mini. My only minor complaint is the fact it’s not the easiest disposable to grip. I think in part due to the smaller size, I found it occasionally slipped out of my hand.
I’m happy to report though, despite dropping each MeshBox Mini several times, I experienced no reduction in performance or noticeable damage, scuffing etc.
All things considered, I think Puffmi have done a fantastic job! The design and build quality are excellent for a disposable in this price range (more on this later!) and I’m genuinely surprised they managed to fit 3.5ml of e-juice and a 550mAh battery into such a compact device!
So much so, it makes me wonder why other non-rechargeable disposable vape devices are so much larger than the Puffmi MeshBox Mini!
Puffmi MeshBox Mini | Performance
Even more surprising than the impressively compact size and lightweight design, is the fact the performance was far better than I’d been expecting from a budget-friendly, non-rechargeable disposable.
Battery life/overall longevity is fantastic, with all four of the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposables exceeding the stated 1,200 total puff capacity. I’ve been getting around three days of pretty heavy vaping out of a single disposable, and although I didn’t count the number of puffs, I’m almost certain I’m taking more than 400 puffs per day.
If you’re vaping 200 puffs a day or less, you should be able to squeeze at least six days out of each Puffmi MeshBox Mini!
The flavor is also surprisingly good, with none of the usual syrupy, candy-like taste you often get from disposables in this price range. I’ll break down each of the flavors I tested a bit further down, but overall the flavors were all well-blended and delicious.
Vapor production is about average for a disposable, with a decent plume of the white stuff roughly comparable to the smoke you’d inhale when smoking a cigarette. If you’ve ever tried the TPD compliant, 600 puff disposables available in the UK, you’ll know exactly what to expect.
However, there was one significant difference… Usually you’d expect a drop-off in flavor and vapor towards the end of the disposable lifespan, but this wasn’t the case with the MeshBox Mini! Instead, I found the quality of the vapor and flavor impressively consistent right up until the very last puff.
Airflow and draw are just about perfect if you prefer a tight, restrictive MTL (mouth-to-lung) hit to simulate the act of smoking a cigarette. It’s too tight for DTL (direct-to-lung) but most disposables are, especially true DTL.
Nicotine delivery and throat hit were both more than adequate, which is no surprise considering the 50mg/ml nicotine strength. Each puff was satisfying, regardless of draw length or intensity. The auto-draw feature and ramp-up time (the time it takes for the coil to activate/heat after you start to puff) is also fast and efficient.
Overall I’m really impressed. Despite the tiny size, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini actually performs like a far more powerful disposable and it exceeded my expectations in almost every way!
Puffmi MeshBox Mini | Flavors
The Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable is currently available in 15 different flavors:
- Cola Ice
- Apple Peach Watermelon
- Rainbow Candy
- Pink Lemonade
- Peach Ice
- Fizzy Cherry
- Fizzy Lemon Grape
- Grape Strawberry
- Mint Ice
- Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava
- Blueberry Sour Raspberry
- Blue Razz Lemonade
- Mango Strawberry Pineapple
- Pineapple Peach Mango
It’s a really decent flavor range, with a menthol flavor and a tobacco blend included for good measure. Interestingly, the TPD compliant, UK version of the Puffmi MeshBox Mini seems to be available in a much larger flavor range, with a total of 40 different flavors!
I’m not sure exactly why the UK version has so many more flavors, but I’m hoping Puffmi will expand the US flavor range in the near future!
I’ll do my best to describe the four flavors Puffmi sent us below.
The Fizzy Cherry flavor tastes exactly like the fizzy cola sweets you get in ‘pick n mix’ with a delicious sweet cherry note!
The fizz in this one really pops and you can almost taste the bubbles!
Definitely a flavor I could happily vape all day.
Fizzy Lemon Grape
The Fizzy Lemon Grape is a mix of sweet, sharp lemonade and ripe, juicy grape.
I’m not usually a fan of grape flavors, but the fizzy lemonade in this really adds that little something extra and I found myself enjoying this one more than I thought I would!
Another well-blended mix and 5/5 for me personally.
The Grape Strawberry flavor is a blend of juicy grape and sweet, yet subtle strawberry.
This was my least favorite of the four flavors Puffmi sent us, simply because the strawberry was a little too subtle for me.
The grape note is the prominent flavor, with the strawberry note somewhat muted and only apparent (to me at least) on the exhale.
Blue Razz Lemonade
The Blue Razz Lemonade is a delicious blend of sharp, tangy blueberries with sweet, ripe raspberries and a mouth-watering, fizzy lemonade.
This was my favorite flavor and Puffmi have absolutely nailed this one!
It’s sweet, tangy, fizzy and bursting with flavor.
Overall, it’s a big thumbs up to Puffmi. Granted, I’ve only tried the four flavors, but if these are anything to go by then I can imagine the full range is equally impressive. The only exception for me personally was the Grape Strawberry, purely because I’m not really a fan of grape flavored e-juice.
Puffmi MeshBox Mini | Price
In terms of price, the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable is hovering around the $8 mark, which is a pretty decent price. However, I did see it online for as low as $4.99, which is incredible value for money!
It’s worth shopping around and seeing what sort of deals you can get your hands on. For instance, buying in bulk is likely to save you some money in the long-term, not to mention you’re more likely to find free shipping if you’re spending a bit more up-front.
Just for reference, the TPD compliant UK version of the MeshBox Mini seems to be available for around £4, which is roughly what I’d expect to pay for a 600 puff disposable.

Puffmi MeshBox Mini | Verdict
- Incredibly compact
- Easy to use
- Great flavor & vapor
- Great flavor range
- Excellent MTL draw
- Satisfying throat hit
- Responsive auto-draw
- Not the easiest to grip
- No dessert flavors
- Only available in 50mg/ml
- No PG/VG ratio listed
I’m actually really impressed with the Puffmi MeshBox Mini disposable!
Far from being gimmicky, I think the biggest selling point is arguably the incredibly tiny size and lightweight design. I’m still genuinely surprised they managed to squeeze everything into such a compact device, and I can see the MeshBox Mini being super popular with vapers looking for a discreet puff or a disposable you can pop in your pocket and forget about until you need it.
What’s even more impressive is the fact there’s no trade-off in terms of performance. The flavor, vapor production, throat hit and nicotine delivery are all far better than you’d expect with a disposable of this size.
Top that off with a decent flavor range, affordable price and surprisingly long lifespan, and the Puffmi MeshBox Mini gets just about everything right!
