The Perks of a Mini Bong
Portability and Storage
For what they lack in size, micro bongs make up for in convenience. It’s rare anyone travels out of their home with a monster bong due to its cumbersome size and potential to break. Large glass is safer at home. Nomadic mini bongs, however, can be used on-the-go with less fear of damaging the piece. Small bongs also take up much less space on your coffee table and are easily stored in a drawer or case.
Same Features in a Smaller Size
These tiny water pipes are also versatile. Many pieces are similar to bare bones beakers or straight tube bongs and come with a bowl, downstem, and mouthpiece. But there are intricate versions as well, including pieces with additional percolators, ice pinches, recyclers, and ash catchers. The nooks and crannies of little water pipes are easier to access as well, so cleaning is quick and easy.
An Enjoyable Smoking Experience
Mini bongs function just like their big brothers. Once lit, smoke passes through the downstem and is cooled and filtered by the water before collecting in the chamber. The user inhales after removing the bowl. The filtered smoke moves up the neck and through the mouthpiece. Micro bongs use less water and its rips are smaller, but it maintains the same smooth, filtered qualities of larger pieces.
Mini bongs are very affordable. These miniature pieces require much less material to make but are blown with the same safe and crack resistant borosilicate glass of traditional pieces. Most mini bongs sold on Glass City Pipes boast a price tag under $100, even intricate top-of-the-line glass.
Approachable for Newbies
The dollar amount of mini bongs is a suitable entry-level price for those who recently started smoking and are not ready to invest in an expensive piece. Mini bongs can also serve as a bunny hill for those who are not yet comfortable with monster rips of behemoth bongs. Because small water pipes operate the same way as large water pipes, new smokers can master their technique on a smaller scale.
If you need a piece with the same attributes of a traditional bong, but with portability and affordability, then a mini bong is a great option. Glass City Pipes micro bongs are as well-made as the rest of our top shelf bongs, but provide easier storability. Bigger is not always better, as in the case with the mighty mini bong.
