Eleaf Pico Dual with Melo III Kit Overview
The Pico Dual Melo III Mini kit is a compact, all-in-one starter kit that can handle incredibly high wattages despite its small size. Eleaf’s second rendition of the iStick Pico is loaded with new features that add onto its predecessor’s success, including the MELO III Mini sub-ohm tank and dual 18650 functionality for longer battery life at high wattages.
Like many of Eleaf’s devices, the Pico Dual offers a minimal and elegant design that doesn’t need any of the fancy bells and whistles to get the point across. This 200W device is equipped with all of the latest temperature control features (Ni, Ti, SS) and offers up to three custom TCR modes for total TC customization. Unlike the original iStick Pico, the Pico Dual uses an intuitive bottom-loading battery design (batteries not included) with flip-open battery cover that allows you to change the batteries quickly and painlessly. The Pico Dual also showcases Eleaf’s innovative Buck-Boost Technology that provides a much steadier output of power no matter what resistance you prefer to vape at. With its 1.5A maximum charging current, the Pico Dual requires much less time to reach a full charge when compared to other popular devices on the market. The new Cell Balancing Trickle Charge System brings the two 18650 cells to an equal and level charge, raising the bar for battery safety and ensuring high security during charging.
The new and improved MELO III is a compact sub-ohm tank that’s constructed out of stainless steel and pyrex glass, supporting an innovative detachable structure that allows for easy, effortless cleaning. This 2mL top-filling tank offers an interchangeable 510 mouthpiece and features a hidden adjustable airflow that can be opened or closed with a twist of the base, adding to the overall minimal-appeal of the kit.
Whether you’re looking for a smaller, dual 18650 device or a fast-charging kit that can handle the latest high wattage tanks, the Pico Dual with Melo III Kit will exceed your expectations and change the way you think about smaller devices in the process!

Eleaf’s all-new Pico Dual with Melo III Kit takes the Pico platform into previously unknown territo-ry- the land of incredibly small and compact dual 18650 devices. This remarkably powerful 200W device is a cloud chasers dream come true, combining elite Temperature Control func-tionality with a sleek form factor to provide the vape community with one of Eleaf’s most im-pressive devices ever released.
Opening the box, you’ll find a battery warning card, Melo III Mini User Manual, Pico Dual User Manual, A quick charge Micro USB cable for fast charging and firmware upgrades, Melo 3 Mini sub-ohm tank, seal ring, 510 threaded reverse charging adapter, and the Pico Dual device.
The Pico Dual is Eleaf’s fourth addition to the Pico platform, and is by far the most powerful, with a maximum wattage output of 200W. This incredibly compact device is constructed out of a lightweight alloy that features a unique triangular shape that fits well in the hand, measuring at 75mm tall and 46mm wide. When compared to the original Pico, the Pico Dual is only 4mm taller than the original. When compared to Smok’s popular and impressively small 220W Alien device, the Pico Dual is actually 10mm shorter, however 16mm wider. These impressive specs will ap-peal to anyone that’s looking for the smallest dual battery device that can still maintain an im-pressive power output.
On top of the Pico Dual, the Pico features a stainless threaded 510 connection and the hexago-nal spring-loaded contact pin. This surface measures at 25mm in diameter and is fully compati-ble with those larger 25mm tanks and RDA’s. On the front of the device is a large firing button, OLED display, and the 1.5A quick-charge micro usb port for fast charging and firmware up-grades. Similar to the original Pico, the regulatory buttons are located on the bottom of the de-vice, however, unlike the original, the two 18650 batteries are loaded into the bottom via flip-open battery cover and not through top of the device.
With the batteries installed, the device powers on, and immediately you can see the Eleaf logo and the in-the-box vaping settings. You can choose between one of four home screen presets by holding down the fire button and the plus button (+) simultaneously. This will allow you to choose between displaying your puff counter, the total vaping seconds, voltage, or the simplified inter-face. Pressing the fire button three times will allow you to switch from wattage mode to the three temperature control modes. This device is compatible with Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel temperature control wires. There is also 3 customizable TCR modes that allow you to set your own temperature coefficient of Resistance. This is helpful for many reasons, but what’s most impressive is the fact that you’ll be able to use the Pico Dual with any Temperature Control wire in the future that’s NOT already programmed into the device, so long as you know the TCR val-ue of the wire you will be using. Pushing the fire button two times will allow you to disable the Eleaf logo that displays on startup. You can also create your own logo and upload it to the Pico Dual using the Eleaf firmware. Holding down the Fire button and the minus button (-) will enable stealth mode and prevent the screen from turning on while you vape, and holding down both of the regulatory buttons will lock the current wattage. Pressing the fire button five times will power the device off. In a powered off state, you can flip the screen orientation by holding down both regulatory buttons.
One of the most impressive features of the Pico Dual is its power bank potential. If your cell phone is about to die, you can siphon the power from the Pico Dual and transfer it directly to your cell phone. To do this, thread on the 510 RC power adapter that was included in the box. Plug in your cell phone’s charge cable, and then power the device on. Next, press the fire button a single time, and the Pico Dual will start charging your phone.
The Melo III Mini is a compact 2mL sub-ohm tank that’s constructed out of Stainless Steel and Pyrex glass, standing at 55mm tall and 22mm wide. On top of the tank, Eleaf installed a remov-able heat-insulated 510 drip tip, and a threaded top cap that can be removed to show the two large top-fill fill-ports. The base of the Melo III is equipped with a hidden adjustable airflow ring that can be opened or closed with a twist of the base, as well as a 510 connection on the very bottom. Pre-installed inside this tank is a powerful 0.3 ohm Kanthal coil head that’s rated for best use between 30 and 80W. This atomizer head is wicked with pure organic cotton and features four large wicking ports for non-stop wicking. Eleaf also constructed a Stainless Steel mesh into the top of these atomizer heads to prevent any kind of spit-back that might occur as a result of higher wattages during those hotter vapes.
All in all, Eleaf’s new Pico Dual kit raises the bar for compact devices that are fueled by two 18650 batteries. The bold, lightweight chassis adds to the overall look and feel of the device, giv-ing the Pico Dual an original look that’ll definitely stand out in a crowd. If you’re looking for one of the smallest and most powerful dual 18650 devices on the market today, The Pico Dual is load-ed with features and should definitely not be overlooked!
