Curious about all the vapor products you've been seeing around? The vapor industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years and new technology is being added every day.
Vapor devices have gotten both simpler and more complex at the same time. Plus, there are tons of new vaping concepts being discussed and tested within the community at expos and events around the world.
Put simply, a vape MOD is just an advanced personal vaporizer. Originally, all vaping was done with very simple ciga-like products that came pre-set with a certain output and a single button. They had limited functionality and did not adequately suit the needs of the wide range of people trying to convert from smoking.
As a result, people began modifying their vaporizers to change the way they tasted and felt. This included making it possible to swap out e-liquids at will instead of using pre-filled e-juice cartridges, adding temperature control and more.
While many of these were home-brew projects in the early years, today's vape MOD is a well-developed product created by engineers who have the know-how to make it safe and reliable.
If you're curious why somebody would choose to buy a vape MOD instead of a regular electronic cigarette, there are a variety of reasons. As mentioned above, the MODs are far more flexible for the user. Most e-cigarette products come with only 3 to 5 cartridge flavors in a few common strengths. If you don't like the flavors they have, or the nicotine strengths they offer, you have to get a different device.
In addition, many of those devices do not deliver enough of a hit to the user, so smokers find themselves feeling unfulfilled by the experience. These vaping devices can be adjusted according to your style so that you can get the feel you are looking for out of your device.
The coils are the part of your vaporizer that are responsible for heating your e-liquid and turning it to vapor. A lower resistance means that the coils heat up faster and stay hotter. This results in much larger, thicker vapor clouds. Generally, the bigger the cloud, the more intense is the flavor.
Sub-ohm vape mods are often used by vapers who are looking for a really strong hit and those that want to participate in vaping competitions or to perform tricks.
Another popular category of vaping MODs is the temperature-control mod, or TC mods. Similar to sub-ohm mods, the TC mod is designed to allow you to adjust the strength of your vapor by adjusting the temperature that you vape at. In this case, you are given either a range of pre-set modes to choose from, or you have a screen that allows you to adjust your temperature up and down as you see fit.
Different temperature ranges change the way the flavors of your e-liquid play out and the way you feel the nicotine in your e-liquid. There are also temperature control mods for dry herb vaping, which release different chemicals as the plants react to different temperatures.
TC mods generally appear more complicated due to the addition of extra buttons and screens for making adjustments.
High-wattage mods are all the rage. The reason is that high-wattage mods give you a much wider range of vaping possibilities. Remember, each e-liquid you try will taste different as you move through several different temperature/wattage settings. Low-wattage vapes leave you with a limited window for experimenting. High-wattage mods give you more flexibility with your vaping.
As advanced personal vaporizers have grown in popularity, many additional products have been developed alongside them. This includes tanks, atomizers, alternative coils and 18650 batteries. The result was that vapers had to shop for not just a single device, but all of these extra components as well.
The all-in-one vaporizer MODs simplifying things once more. These devices typically have built-in tanks and atomizers that are easy to swap out. They also usually include built-in batteries with a basic USB charging port so you don't have to have a separate charger plugged in.
These ultra-convenient mods are taking advantage of the advanced technology used in sub-ohm and TC mods, but they are repackaging it into a smaller, easier-to-carry system.
The subject of built-in battery mods is a hotly contested one. Either you love them or you hate them. On the one hand, a built-in battery is simple. The decision is already made for you, so you don't have to source your own batteries, which may or may not be compatible with anything else you own. In addition, the charging cable is usually a simple USB cable so you can recharge from any computer or wall plug with an adapter.
On the other hand, many vapers feel that vape manufacturers choose sub-par batteries for their built-in devices. This often means that the device comes with a battery that has significantly less life than it would otherwise have if you were to source your own. In addition, if the battery is ever damaged, there is a chance that you will have to replace the entire device, rather than just replacing the batteries. This can be an expensive proposition.
The world of removable battery mods is far more flexible than that of built-in battery mods. Obviously, when you buy your own batteries, the sky is the limit for mAh ratings. Plus, many devices share the same style of battery, so if you collect different devices you can easily switch between them without having to charge each one independently.
You can also carry a spare set of vape batteries with you on the road so you can swap them out and recharge the old ones while you continue vaping. The lack of down time is a huge plus for this category.
Most of today's advanced TC and sub-ohm mods tend to have removable batteries, while the all-in-one vapes and mini vapes are more likely to have built in batteries.
Today, most vape mods are sold in "starter kits." Despite what the name may suggest, not all starter kits are designed for beginners. Rather, the kit includes everything you need to set up the device the first time.
This usually means that there is an atomizer of some kind with a couple of coils to get you going. It is still up to you to put the whole thing together and learn to use it properly.
Before you run out and buy a vape mod, vaporizers, electronic cigarette or vape pen, it is important that you are first familiar with how vaping works. Each of these vaporizer mods requires some level of understanding about vaping and e-liquids.
There are many entry-level vape mods on the market today to get you started. You should seek advice from a knowledgeable expert in the vape field who can point you in the direction of a device that is suited to your needs and skill level. Oftentimes the most popular devices on the market require a special set of tools and knowledge to use safely, such as sub-ohm devices.
Hopefully, this guide has given you some insight into the different types of vaping mods on the market and what you can expect from them. Remember, a vaporizer mod is no longer an unstable, home-built device that should be viewed with skepticism. Today, vape mods are professional, reliable vape devices that have been thoroughly tested for performance and safety.
Many manufacturers have entered the scene by creating 100 percent unique vape mods that deliver a more enjoyable vaping experience than the original e-cigarettes.
