The Tube Mod - The Simplest Vape

The Tube Mod is another category of vaping devices that are very similar to the style and functionality of box mods or mini vape mods. The biggest and obvious, aspect that differentiates them is their actual physical looks and design.

Their Design and Ease of Use

Regardless of features, they offer (temp control/wattage control/safety features) or the case for most tube mods, the lack of unwanted features, they always have one common theme and that is their cylinder design. The majority of tube mods are simple two-piece builds ( tank - battery) and usually are charged via USB - some models may require an actual external battery that needs to be charged separately but this design is becoming less desirable and therefore being produced less and less by most vendors.

They come in all sorts of colors and can be as simple as a one-button functionality or sometimes offer more advanced features like an LCD screen with a digital readout and some go as far as to having multiple tank capabilities to allow vaping other materials such as wax or herbs.

Tube mods are perfect for the vaper (or future vaper) who really wants to keep the whole process simple. Tube mods are one of the easiest styles of vapes to use on a day-to-day basis thanks to most only having one button and no need for adjusting wattage or temperature settings. Charge the battery - fill the tank with your favorite juice - screw it on the mod (battery) and go!

Power & Size

Most tube mods rarely offer wattage ranges over a 100 due to the use of one battery in the mod itself. This is to help with keeping its actual cylinder design and to help keep the overall length of the tube mod appropriately sized for easy portability. Most tube mods will range from 20 to 60 watts of power and in some cases, instead of giving the mod an actual wattage amount, the device will simply vape according to the voltage of the battery that it's supplied with.


Another great facet with tube mods is their cost. Rarely will a tube mod run you more than $100 at the most. The typical cost of a good tube mode will be in the $30 to $80 range and most vendors offer their tube mods in "kits" that will supply you with a high-quality tank, charging cable, a manual, and in some cases a free bottle of juice.
