In the world of vaping, box mods are the cats meow. A step up from a standard electronic cigarette, box mods provide a versatile platform to build a choice vape engine.
With larger designs and more power, box mods never fail to deliver abundant clouds of vapor.
When you’re ready to step up your vape game, check out what I have learned about box mods in the past few years.
Vape box mods literally come in all shapes and sizes. The two main differences are mechanical and regulated. Most box mods are regulated for safety and power adjustment capabilities, with a chipset inside.
Mechanical box mods can have built in batteries, and consist of only the necessary parts to fire the coil. With a mechanical box mod you typically wont have power adjustments, and must know ohm’s law, and use the proper atomizer coils.
You want to get a mechanical box mod with a regulated battery for safety. These regulated batteries can be built in or you can buy them.
Generally a mechanical box mod is simply a battery, a fire button, and a housing to mount the atomizer.
Most mechanical mods are referred to as mech mods, and shaped like a flashlight handle, typically made of metal. This type is not a mechanical box mod, but referred to as a mech mod or pen style.
A mechanical mod design does not have safety features, so your will need to test atomizer ohms before firing. This design isn’t used much anymore simply because regulated mods are better and abundant, and you have to have knowledge of ohms law to use one.
A much safer option is the regulated box mod, the most widely used design. This type of box mod contains a circuit board to regulate the current, and adjust the voltage or wattage to your liking.
A regulated box mod has many safety features such as short circuit protection, overheat, and low battery to name a few. Regulated box mods will typically have removable batteries, but a lot of box mod brands are moving to internal batteries.
I prefer to use a regulated mod set at sixty-five to eighty-five watts.
Vape mods surprise me everyday with their innovative, ever evolving designs.
From firing buttons, to battery compartment doors, all aspects of vape box mods vary from brand to brand. It’s good to try different brands out to see what is comfortable to you.
Vape mods can carry one to four batteries, or have built in power. Having more batteries can extend your battery life, ease the stress on battery cells, and give you more firing power.
Regulated mods carry different types of chipsets that control the power, temperature control functions as well as safety features. They also control different types of displays like full color LCD.
These box mods can range from fifty to three hundred watts. Mods can be constructed from plastic and or metal.
Box Mods can also be shockproof and water resistant, and decorated in almost every color.
Get a squonk mod right now, what are you waiting for?
The newest style is called a squonk mod. This type of vape box mod has a squonk bottle built into it.
The squonk bottle, given the appropriate atomizer, can be squeezed to fill the atomizer. This gives the user the ability to, not only have more juice on hand, but a larger atomizer deck to build on.
Squonk mods now can have tanks or RTAs, and can also be equipped with pumpers for maximum laziness.
Regulated vape mods can be switched from temperature control to power control.
Temperature control can only be used If an atomized is equipped with nickel coils. This will allow your to dial in vape clouds to an exact temperature as opposed to wattage.
I use a twin battery squonk mod, that is very convenient, and rips huge clouds.
New mods coming out so fast it’s hard to keep up. You can get some crazy high watt mods, custom mods, diffuser mods, touch screen mods, and on and on, the tech is outta control, in a good way.
If your like me, the bigger the better, when it comes to mods. Getting a multi- battery or lager battery mod, will surely satisfy your power hungry self. Also a bigger mod will have longer battery life if used at lower power.
Even if your not gonna blast off at 300 or 400 watts, it’s good to have headroom to work towards. Most tanks won’t even handle more than 120 watts. But an RTA or RDA can be made to suit your needs, with experience of course.
Atomizers come in two general types, the kind your build yourself and pre-built. Within these two types exist many styles. Each style serves a different function, depending on the cloud chasing route your are taking.
Within the pre – built section your will find replaceable atomizers. This atomizer is ready to unscrew and screw in a new, when the coil or cotton is burnt. These replaceable atomizers have many coil configurations. You can have from one to eight or more coils, in one atomizer. You are sure to find the cloud production your need with a pre-built unit, ready to prime and go.
Within the build your own section your will find acronyms such as RDAs, RBAs, and RTAs to name a few. RDA s are rebuildable dripping atomizers. You can wind your own coils or buy wound coils, install then wick. You then drip your liquid directly through the mouth piece onto the coils, to soak the wick.
RBAs are rebuildable bottom-feed atomizers. RBAs will be used with the squonk mod, that injects the liquid from the bottle inside your squonk mod. The liquid travels through a hole in the pin to a reservoir in the atomizer.
RTAs are rebuildable tank atomizers. RTAs have the same rebuildable coils with the liquid being stored in a tank around the coils, this can limit your build space if your like dual coils.
I use a 24mm RBA with dual coils. I buy pre-made clapton style coils, and do my own wick, from 100% cotton.
Besides every flavor liquid known to man, there are lots of accessories for vape box mods, both necessary and unnecessary. It’s important to get the necessary accessories so your not left without power.
They make an ultrasonic diffuser for cleaning your atomizers check it out at WotoFo.
One awesome vape box mod accessory that people don’t think of is a carrying case. This keeps your mod and batteries safe if out and about, or even camping. I like these especially in Wisconsin wear I live, It rains and snows a lot. I have a twin battery squonk mod so pockets are not a good option. You want to keep dirt and other elements out of your beautiful mods and atomizers.
Some necessary items are chargers and batteries. Batteries range in a few different sizes depending on what your mod requires. Chargers can charge one to several batteries at once. A good choice is a charger with overcharge protection.
If you’re looking for style, they make interchangeable skins for some vape mods, as well as aftermarket skins. If your looking for protection, you can find silicon protective skins on amazon for almost every popular vape mod.
Interchangeable mouthpiece, or drip tip, is a cool option that can be purchased in tons of colors and different sizes.
After purchasing four completely different vape mods, and countless atomizer styles, I have recently found my cloud enormous of choice. I use a Rage dual 18650 squonk mod. This mod is metal, heavy and awesome, I have the brushed bronze style.
I top this vape mod with a Drop 24mm dual coil bottom feed atomizer. I use two pre-built clapton coils equaling 0.4 ohms, and set my rig to sixty-five watts. For my wicks I use organic cotton, and squonk max VG juice at six mg. This setup gives me amazing flavors and enormous vape clouds.
I have found huge variations in flavor, cloud production, coil and battery life. Choose your setup wisely, and beware of knock-off brands and flimsy product design. Thank you for your support! Please leave a comment!
