It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of smokers kicking the habit in exchange for vaping. It’s cleaner, less damaging to your body, and smells and tastes a heck of a lot better, too! But if you’re new to vaping, we also know it can be a bit confusing. From basic Cig-A-Likes to box mods and pod vapes, there’s a lot going on. Not to mention the juice flavors, nicotine levels, and pg/vg ratios!
Vapers who crave a more powerful vaping experience are more likely to choose a box mod device. These vapes are much more complex than the pen-style devices and usually feature screens and buttons that allow you to control the wattage of your vape based on your preferences. They also offer a few things that more basic devices can’t, such as:
Longer battery life
Better cloud and vapor production
Better settings management and control
Integrated circuit boards to let you set your ideal vape hit
Regulated Mods vs Mech Mods Comparison
There are two kinds of box mods: unregulated (mech) mods and regulated mods. In the vaping world, whether or not a device is regulated refers solely to the way in which the mod works. The main difference is whether or not the mod has circuitry that “regulates” the current from the battery to the atomizer coil.
Mech mods consist of a battery, an atomizer, and the housing. Because there is no circuitry between the batteries and the atomizer, the only control on the mod is the fire button, which delivers raw power between the two. There’s also no wattage or power adjustment, so you can’t personalize your hit style. That being said, the simplicity of mech mods tends to equal greater longevity. There are no circuits to break down, menus to navigate, or firmware/software issues.
Regulated mods are, well, regulated. They use circuitry and processors to control the current coming from your battery to the atomizer, and allow you to customize your vaping experience. They also have built-in safety features that monitor and control the power output, temperature, resistance, and even battery life. Overall, regulated mods are much safer, equally as powerful, and perfect for beginning vapers, in particular.
Which mod is right for me? Regulated Mods Or Mech Mods
Ultimately, it’s your decision! However, for safety’s sake, we recommend regulated mods, especially for beginners. Mech mods require a lot of vaping knowledge and mechanical know-how and can be dangerous if used improperly. Besides, regulated box mods, such as our SMOK Morph 219 Kit, can deliver equal satisfaction with less maintenance and doesn’t require the mechanical skills.
