SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Oil and Wax Vape Review

The SteamCloud Mini 2.0 is the perfect oil vape battery for those looking for a compact, lightweight battery loaded with features. At under 100g and only two and a half inches long, you barely feel the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 in your pocket. Especially since the cartridges slide into the battery. Its small size doesn’t take away from its merits. The 2.0 version features magnetic connections for ease of use, variable voltage functionality for temperature control, and a wax atomizer for versatility. This little battery has it all and is built to last. We’ll break down the best things about the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 oil vaporizer and then tell you how to use, clean and fix it. Finally, we’ll compare the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 to our other oil and wax vaporizers so you get the best oil and wax vaporizer for your needs.

Magnetic Connnections For the SteamCloud Mini 2.0

Key Feature #1: Magnetic Connections

The SteamCloud Mini 2.0 comes with two magnetic adapters for oil cartridges. Simply screw this adapter onto your cartridges and then you can easily slip the cartridges in or out of the battery. For those of you that like to swap cartridges often, this feature takes the time and hassle out of swapping cartridges. Most users that use multiple cartridges just carry around multiple batteries so they don’t have to swap carts. With the SteamCloud Mini 2.0, you save time and space by only carrying around one battery.

Key Feature #2: Compact and Light Vaporizer

The SteamCloud Mini 2.0 is a powerful battery loaded with features but this doesn’t mean it’s bulky. It weighs less than 100 grams and is even smaller than the SteamCloud Box Mod. Additionally, since the cartridges slip inside the SteamCloud Mini 2.0, and you can easily slide them out, it’s the most portable and compact wax and oil vape around.

Key Feature #3: Variable Voltage and Pre-Heat Vaping Abilities

Two new features to the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 make it even better than before. It now has variable voltage settings allowing users to control the temperature of the atomizer. You can simply press the power button three times to change the voltage - green for 3.4V, blue for 3.7V, and red for 4.0V. Another awesome feature is the Mini 2.0’s preheat function. Press the power button twice to start a 15 second pre-heat at 1.8V. This isn’t necessary but helps preheat your oil so you get nice, thick clouds without having to take a few pulls first.

Key Feature #4: Versatility - Can Be Used for Vaping Wax and Oil

The last great new feature on the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 is its ability to vape wax in addition to oil. It comes with a quartz coil wax atomizer instantly turning the Mini 2.0 into a wax vape. It also fits skinny 510 thread oil cartridges. While these are the most common pre-filled cartridges, some manufacturers do make thick 510 thread cartridges that might not fit so make sure to get the standard skinny 510 cartridges. Overall, the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 wax and oil vape is the best option for users looking for a light, compact, full-featured wax and oil vaporizer.

What's in the SteamCloud Mini Vape Kit

What Comes in the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Vaporizer Kit?

  • 1x SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Magnetic Cartridge Battery
  • 1x Wax Atomizer
  • 2x Metal Ring Oil Cartridge Adapters
  • 1x USB Charging Cable
  • 1 Insert with instructions and other details

How to Use the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Wax and Oil Vape?

First, you need to charge your SteamCloud Mini 2.0 with the micro USB cable provided. We suggest charging the Mini 2.0 for three hours. Once charged, it’s time to connect an oil cartridge or wax atomizer.

 

Using the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Vape for Oil:

  • Screw one of the magnetic adapters that came with the kit onto your skinny 510 thread oil cartridge
  • Now you can simply pop the cartridge into the vape battery
  • The cartridge will magnetize into place and should hold quite well, you can give it a shake to make sure it’s seated properly
  • Turn on the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 by pressing the power button five times consecutively
  • To change the voltage setting, press the power button three times consecutively
  • Once you’ve set the desired voltage, you can press the power button twice consecutively to activate the preheat function (This step isn’t necessary but it will give you better vapor right away)
  • Hold the power button and inhale

 

Using the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Vape for Wax:

  • Connect the wax atomizer to a magnetic connector
  • Using a dab tool, drop a dab about the size of a grain of rice onto the quartz coil
  • Drop the wax atomizer into the vape battery
  • Turn on the vape by pressing the power button five times consecutively
  • Set the desired voltage by pressing the power button three times consecutively (higher voltage for thicker clouds, lower voltage for smoother vapor)
  • Close up the atomizer
  • Holding the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 upright (so the coil faces up), press and hold the power button and inhale to vaporize wax, shatter, or sauce.

How to Clean the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Wax and Oil Vape?

If you treat your SteamCloud Mini 2.0 wax and oil vaporizer right, it won’t require much cleaning. When using it with pre-filled oil cartridges, it will stay clean. If using the Mini 2.0 as a wax vaporizer, always keep it upright, especially right after use. This will prevent any wax from leaking out of the atomizer.

If you do have a leak, turn off the SteamCloud Mini 2.0. You can use rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip to clean the outside of the unit and inside the cartridge slot if necessary.

When using the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 as a wax vape, the coils can buildup residue (especially if using low-grade wax or other concentrates. At this point, we recommend you replace the coil with a new one.

How to Fix the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Wax and Oil Vape?

Since each pre-filled oil cartridge has a new atomizer, using the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 as an oil vape can last years without a problem. However, the wax atomizer will burn out over time. If you are using it heavily every day, it may only last a month or two. If you use it less frequently, it will last much longer. Replace the wax atomizer either when it fails to heat or if it starts tasting a bit nasty.

 

You may also find it hard to get a pull out of the SteamCloud Mini 2.0. If this happens, check to make sure there is no residual oil on the magnetic connector. Also make sure this connector is screwed on completely. Finally, the atomizer in the cartridge might not be working correctly. Try another cartridge and if that works, you should exchange the defective cartridge.

How is the SteamCloud 2.0 Different from Other Vapes

How is the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 Different from Other Wax and Oil Vapes?

The SteamCloud Mini 2.0 is the best option for users that mainly vape oil and are looking for a compact, convenient vape but also want the option to vape wax. The SteamCloud Mini 2.0 wax atomizer has a single quartz coil, similar to that of the Saber Vape Pen for wax. However, the Saber comes with both quartz coil and ceramic doughnut atomizers. Some users prefer the ceramic doughnut to quartz but we think they provide a similar vaping experience. Both the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 and the Saber will vape wax, but you won’t get massive dab-like hits. If you’re looking for bigger wax rips, check out the Yocan Evolve Plus wax pen which has dual quartz coils. The Yocan Evolve Plus XL vape pen has four quartz coils if you want a true dab experience.

We also have many oil vapes available. If you just want a simple oil vape battery with no extra features, check out our Oil Vape Pen Stylus Battery or 510 Thread Battery. These are a bit more economical and still work great for vaping pre-filled oil cartridges.

If you want a vape pen that can vape wax and oil, you can also check out the rest of our selection of box mods. The slightly larger SteamCloud box mod can provide a bit more power than the mini 2.0 and it can be used with dry herb, wax, oil and e-juice atomizers.

Again, if you’re looking for a light, compact oil and wax vape that is easy to use, yet packed with great features, the SteamCloud Mini 2.0 is for you.

Wax concentrates have been gaining a lot of popularity over the last several years. Until fairly recently, this type of concentrate was consumed using dab rigs. While dab rigs work great for consuming wax, they are not super portable or convenient. This brought the wax vaporizer, often denoted dab pens to the market.
