What is a vape mod?

A vape mod is a power source, essentially a case that contains one or more rechargeable (removable or non-removable) batteries, that supplies electricity to a vaping atomizer or coil. The term “mod” has its roots in the early years of e-cigs, where hobbyist vapers “modified” existing electrical hardware for custom use as vaping hardware. Now almost all e-cig power sources are referred to as mods. Box mods are one of two primary types of power sources, with tube mods being the other. We have curated a best vape mods list above.

Different types of vape mods

Pen mods (vape pens)

Vape pen mods are probably the most common form of vape given their portability and ease of use. Shaped like a pen they are small in size and produce good flavor and vapor, but lack the battery life of a box mod.

Box mods

The next step up from a pen mod or cig-a-like type device. Box mods provide unrivalled battery life depending on the size and battery capacity. Box mods provide vapers with a larger power source and they come in varying sizes. Users can use any tanks with the box mods, giving vapers great flexibility in their vaping style.

Tube mods

Similar to pen mods, but usually larger in size and battery capacity. Tube mods mostly do not have variable wattage and are in that respect easy to use as the battery will provide the right amount of power for whatever atomizer/tank you are using. Some vapers prefer the form factor of tube mods over box mods, but ultimately it comes down to personal taste.

Pod mods

Pod mods are the latest trend to hit the vaping market. These vape mod kits come with prefilled pods that can be easily inserted into the mod and vaped straight away. They are the simplest and cleanest vaping solution as they don’t require refilling or the changing of coils. They are often the preferred choice for smokers looking for the simplest and most portable devices to vape. Other vape mods types include squonk mods, all-in-one mods and mechanical mods.
