What's a mini bong?
Small but mighty, mini bongs pack a big punch in a small package. These water pipes stand up to 6 inches tall and are about 5-6 inches on average. Many people are attracted to mini bongs because they want the water filtration power of a bong but in a size that’s easy to bring anywhere. Their smaller size also makes them more comfortable to use than standard size bongs and they often include many of the key features you'd find on a normal setup like asplash guard, ice pinch and percs.
Benefits of mini bongs
When people say bigger is better, mini bongs prove differently. Mini and small bongs have a lot going for them, so we've called out the top three reasons why you should invest in a mini bong:
Portable - These bongs can easily fit in a purse or backpack for the smoke sesh at your friend's place, hikes, concerts, drive-in theaters or pretty much anywhere.
Affordable - Since mini bongs are much smaller they use less glass and are generally much more affordable than standard sized bongs.
Smooth hits - There's a part of you that wants to roll a joint and just call it a day, but if you're all about the smooth rips you get from smoking from a bong, then you can get the best of both worlds without sacrificing the convenience.
Types of mini bongs:
Carb bongs - Rather than a regular bowl and slide, these bongs have a small hole in the side much like a pipe. The bowl and downstem are usually one piece in these, which fit tightly into a hole. You don’t need to remove the bowl or downstem to use it, simply cover the hole with your thumb and uncover to inhale. Carb bongs give you fewer loose pieces to worry about, so they are even more portable and are the best if travel is one of the main reasons for buying.
Traditional mini bongs - These do have their own bowl and slide. The benefit of that is that you can customize it with your own funky novelty bowl or add features like an ash catcher.
Mini bong features to consider
Most people want a mini bong because of it's portability so if that's the case for you, definitely make sure to get one that doesn't have protruding parts that may shatter in your bag on the way to the smoke sesh. Carb bongs have less protruding pieces, so these may be your best bet. Also, if you're all about percolators, take a look at mini percolator bongs. If you like to chill down your hits with a couple ice cubes, get a mini bong with an ice catcher. Whatever special feature you're looking for, most mini bongs will have although it may not be as equipped as that beast of a bong with 10+ percolators you keep safely at home.
How much are mini bongs?
Mini bongs and small bongs can range in price depending on the quality of the materials, brand and features but a simple glass mini bong can go as low at $19.99 and a silicone bong even less. Higher-end mini bongs with intricate detailing like the Empire Glass Avocadope Mini Rig are upwards of $300 but are one of a kind handblown works of art. This is a super cool mini bong that's an investment piece for when you really want to treat yourself or a special someone.
