A Guide to Vape Mods
Vaping has not been around long, but it has been around long enough for us to start appreciating the various changes and upgrades that have been available on the market, including new products, new research, and a whole bunch of new customers.
That said, because of how fast everything is changing and how many different bits and pieces there are that go with vaping, sometimes it is good for us to take a moment and remember that it can be a little overwhelming for those who are not technically minded or who are just starting out.
This piece will help those who are interested in changing or upgrading their vape mod when it comes time to purchasing a new one.
What is Modding?
Modding is essentially when things can be modified from their original state. The vaping industry is no stranger to these modifications. Back in the early days of vaping, there was a small selection of choices, but today it is a far cry from the simple electronic cigarette that was first introduced to us, and which was modeled on the shape of a traditional cigarette to look like the real thing. As more people began to take on the trend of vaping, the desire for modification and a customized vaping experience began to grow, and thus a much more expansive vaping industry was born.
What is a Vape Mod?
A vape mod is essentially a vape that has been modified, usually to the user’s preferences. That being said, there are many elements that come under vape mods which are essentially what comprises the whole vape itself. These pieces include a battery, a tank, and an atomizer which are the essentials to make a vape work, along with other components that are replaceable.
What was once a simple box mod has now turned into a variety of options, which this piece will take you through!
The Traditional Mod
A traditional mod was the first mod to really come onto the scene. It was an impressive step up from the original cylinder cigarette shaped vape and it somehow looked like a gadget out of a Star Wars movie.
Traditional mods hold all the key functions that a cigarette shaped vape does but with much more power and capacity, though this can sometimes be adjusted to the user’s preference.
That said, as with many things that progress coupled with human nature, vapers wanted more control over their experience. At this point, not all vapers were ex-smokers, and it had become quite a trend of its own accord, which brought in plenty of new ideas.
Box mods quickly took over the traditional mods as they offered much more capacity for adjustments and different preferences. The industry then started to up its game when it came to offering different styles, aesthetics, and personal touches.
Bigger than a traditional mod, box mods are much more difficult to fit in your pocket; however, they do hold a much bigger battery which means more quality vaping for longer. There is also the option for the user to see additional information such as the wattage and the temperature.
This is quite important to the vaping experience as these can be tweaked and changed to create a more customized vaping setup along with other modifications such as coils, which alter the amount of vapor that is produced.
Box mods are one of the most popular vapes on the market because of their customizable nature. They do require homework, especially if the user wants to alter anything themselves, but generally, they are a safe and straightforward piece of kit that offers reasonable room for customization.
Mechanical mods are for the next level vapers who want a fully customizable experience with no compromise. These are some of the fanciest vapes on the market, boasting a wide range of changeable features. This particular type of vape mod holds an impressive amount of leeway when it comes to its design; however, because of this, mechanical mods can be dangerous and are certainly not for someone who is not used to handling a vape and its inner components.
Mechanical mods do not have any additional circuits which means there is nothing to regulate the power from the battery to the coil. Because of the design, it is best that beginner vapers steer clear, though this is a fantastic upgrade for those who want a completely tailored experience with a reliable and portable bit of kit.
