Smok Vape Mods
What are vape mods?
Vape Mods are large, advanced devices which are favoured for their customisability, durability and powerful vapour production. Most vape mods have larger, longer-lasting external batteries that will need to be charged separately, though some may already have LiPo (Lithium-ion Polymer) pack batteries included.
How do vape mods work?
Vape mods fundamentally allow users to control or ‘modify’ their vaping experience to their own personal preference. These potent devices also often include additional room to hold your e-liquids, as well as fast-acting coils for a superior vaping experience. Alongside these impressive features, vape mods will often include a simple circuit known as a chipset which allows users to fine-tune their device’s power output, variable wattage and overall performance for an individualised vaping experience. Most vape mods also support a 510 connection thread which can be used with virtually all vape tanks. Due to their high power levels, vapers are able to customise their vape mod by adding and changing components, including wicks, coils, drip tips, Sub Ohm tanks, and atomisers, which can all help to improve flavour or create a vaster amount of vapour.
What are the different types of vape mods?
Now you know that a vape mod is a vaping device that can be modified to a user’s liking by adding replaceable components, let’s explore the different variants below.
What are Variable Wattage / Variable Voltage vape Mods?
People switch to variable wattage / variable voltage mods as a way to transition from beginner or starter vaping devices. These mods allow users to alter the electrical current that flows through the coil for intensified flavour and vapour production, enabling vapers to experiment and achieve a tailored vaping experience. Whether you decide to increase or decrease the output will vary depending on the resistance of your coil and which e-liquid you are using.
What are Mechanical Mods?
As mechanical mods require working knowledge of Ohm’s Law (the formula which defines the relationship between voltage, current and resistance), they are not suitable for beginner vapers. Similar in size to box mods and vape pens, mech mods are distinguished for their reliability, durability, as well as their minimal hardware and circuitry. The power of this device is conditional to the type of battery that you are using, and how much charge it has.
What are Box Mods?
Box mods are heavier, larger devices which can house up to three external lithium battery varieties. These highly customisable devices feature a contemporary OLED digital display to show your wattage, volts, and ohms, with many of the best box mods also providing several safety functions for a reliable experience. All box mods include a 510 threaded connection, which is universal to use with most vape tanks on the market.
How long do Box Mods last?
The batteries found in most vape mods can be removed, which means there’s no need to purchase an entirely new device once the power has run out - all you have to do is use a new pack of batteries! Depending on the quality, Lithium-ion batteries found in modern vape mods will generally last for around 300-500 cycles. To best retain battery life, ensure to charge and discharge fully, and always use an external battery charger to power your batteries at the correct voltage. When it comes to upgrading your Vape Mod to a new device, we highly recommend recycling all of the component parts rather than completely disposing of them.
