Vape MODs – Personal Vaporizers

Several Personal Vaporizers

At the top of the e-cig food chain is the personal vaporizer , commonly called a Vape MOD because they are the results of items such as flashlights or metal tubes that were modified to fit an atomizer and vaporizeADvanced Personal Vaporizer liquid nicotine. These modified devices turned into a whole new class of vaporizers. A  vape MOD is designed for the vapers who desire more control when vaping and does not want the hassles and dangers associated with Mech MOD vaporizers.

Vaporizer Mods are quickly catching up to the bigger devices in power output and overall control. Mech Mods are still considered the heaviest hitters in the game but as Box Mods continue to evolve this gap is rapidly diminishing. This vaporizer style is available in a variety of options and is preferred by smokers who do not mind a bigger device with more weight.

The three most common types of MODs are:

  • Vape MODs- Regulated Circuitry, long battery life, big vapor and flavor, most popular, safer than Mech MODS
  • Mechanical MODSUnregulated (no controls), build your own atomizer, technical to work on, biggest vapor
  • Herbal VaporizersDried herbs, tobacco, no smoke, yes they work. Commonly called herbal vaporizers

personal vaporizers reviewedThe amount of vapor that a MOD generates can easily surpass any other electronic cigarette or a tobacco cigarette for that matter. Many heavy smokers are attracted to these popular vaporizers because they offer a battery that lasts all day and can fit a large capacity tank on top.

Most MOD vaporizer units give you a choice of using a Cartomizers, a clearomizer, a tank, or an atomizer on top of the battery.

The MOD style vaporizer has more options such as a Rebuildable Drip Atomizers (RDAs). Many of these regulated vaporizers are variable voltage and wattage, which means the output of the battery can be adjusted up or down to provide the best temp for any flavor. The voltage range usually starts at 3.0 volts and can be increased by 0.1 volts all the way up to 6.0 volts, while variable watts usually range from 3w-50w+. The lower the voltage or wattage, the lower the output of power to the battery. This has a direct effect on the temperature of the heating element, but that depends on the resistance rating of the cartomizer.

The primary benefit to using a Vape MOD is the power to see and control almost everything. Regulated vape MODs allow the user to view the output of the voltage/wattage going to the heating element, as well as check the battery levels, and see the resistance of the element coil in real time, rated in Ohms.

Many of the cartomizers on the market come in different resistances that are referred to as low resistance (LR) or high resistance (HR). The lower the resistance, the higher the temp of the element will be. For example, an LR cartomizer will burn hotter at 3.0 volts than an HR cartomizer will at the same voltage. This allows the user to find the perfect blend of heat and voltage for any e-cigarette liquid flavor.

You may reduce the voltage of your Mod and still get a high temperature from the element if you are using a low resistance cartomizer. However, you may notice more sensitivity to burning your e-liquid and heating element if you use an LR cartomizer at a high voltage. If you were not satisfied by any other electronic cigarette, a Mod Vaporizer might be what you are looking for. 

They are fat and sometimes ugly but ask anyone who uses one, and they will tell you they are worth the extra weight and effort. If the size and weight is an issue, have a look at the Vape Pen Styles. They are smaller but still pack a punch.

  • Regulated Power. Adjustable Watts and or Volts
  • Highly Customizable
  • Usually Has small LCD Screen
  • Larger, bigger battery/unit. Last Longer Between Charges
  • Perfect For Heavy Smokers
  • Removable Battery. Charge the Battery Separately
  • Most Options For The Least Amount of Effort

advanced personal vaporizer reviewsVape Mods are the perfect fit for those who want all the power and cool features without all the work of a rebuildable mech mod.

Most find that Advanced e-cig mods easily cover all the important aspects when looking for that device to eliminate tobacco for good! These heavy hitters are geared to the heavy smoker who needs a good throat hit and a bigger cloud than a basic vaporizer, or vape pen can give. The bigger batteries make these guys heavier but last longer while providing more power.

Grab a starter kit unless you already have a separate battery charger and some e-liquid tanks.

Volcano’s Flagship Mod

 Price: $194.99+

The latest beast from Volcano is their upgraded Lavatube 3.0. The prior 2.5 model was an awesome vaporizer, and thankfully they kept the core aspects of what made the 2.0 great and added more power and features. Variable wattage, temperature control abilities, and the pass-through charging lets you vape and charge at the same time, helps make this tube-style Mod a powerful device. Definitely not the cheapest starter kit option out there but thanks to its specs, this one will be relevant for years to come!
