Best box mods and vape mods 2018

Updated Nov 1st 2018

This is it! If you’re looking for the best vape mods & box mods this is the new updated 2018 list you need to see. We used different criteria to rate our tested box mods. Not all high quality mods are the same. That’s why we segmented our box mod top list into smaller categories. We start with the best vape mods for beginners, than we continue with the exciting high performance mods and last but not least we rated the compact mods, which are becoming more and more popular because of their ideal size.

How do we know what’s best? This is probably the hardest part. Reviewing these vapes is easy but deciding which box mod should be on this list is a different ball-game. There are 2 ways how vapemods can become part of this list. First, companies that send us their best performing mods to test an review. Second, suggestions we get via our Social Media channels and of course our fellow vape review sites and friends. We value the second one the most since it’s the most honest way to find superior vape mods.

This list will update regularly. We will try to update once a month. All the way in the top we listed our Top 3 for your convenience. These mods stand out in terms of best overall performance and build quality.

Vape mod Information and Recommendations

What is a box mod or vape mod?

Box mod or vape mod is a general term used to describe a rectangular device to which the e-liquid atomizer is attached. It includes the battery as well as the board, wiring and a 510 connector for the atomizer. The battery can be built into the mod or it can work with external cells like 18650 or 20700. When the e-liquid reservoir is embedded into the mod itself the device is called an All In One.

The main purpose of a box mod or vape mod is to use current from the battery to heat up the coil inside the atomizer each time the user presses a button. This transforms a small quantity of e-liquid into vapor intended for inhaling in a process often referred to as vaping.

What are the main different features of mods?

Today’s mods have many features which depend on manufacturer, model and type. The most important are Variable Wattage, Temperature Control, TCR, Power Curve and Safety features.

Variable Wattage is often called power mode and it allows the user to set a specific output value for the the device. This relates directly to the amount of vapor the atomizer produces but usually the higher the value the bigger the clouds.

Temperature Control is another feature of some box mods and it allows user to control the maximum temperature reached by the coil. This only works when using certain types of wire like Nickel, Titanium or Stainless Steel and it’s based on the temperature coefficient of resistance. As the temperature increases so does the resistance of these wires and by constantly reading this value the mod accurately predicts coil temperature at any given point in time.

TCR is another feature linked to temperature control and lets the user input specific values for different types of materials used to build the coil. It makes temperature control even more precise and improves versatility.

Power Curve is a feature that enables different power adjustments in a specific time interval. This way the user can increase the wattage for the first two seconds the fire button is pressed and then gradually decrease it to a desired value. It’s a feature that’s also referred to as pre-heat and it’s important when using complex coil builds like Claptons which have a big ramp up time.

Safety Features include short circuit protection, reverse polarity protection, low battery protection, overheating protection and cut-off interval.

How important is it to have Temperature control?

Temperature control is a very important feature to have. It only works with Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel coils and its main purpose is to prevent dry hits. By accurately predicting atomizer temperature the mod knows when cotton is almost dry and prevents it from burning. Also by constantly adjusting power output it helps preserve battery life.

At the same time it allows users the fully customize their vaping experience. People who enjoy cooler vapor can set a lower temperature while those who like warmer clouds can set up their devices accordingly.

Vape mod Cleaning and maintenance tips

Once you own a vape that suits your needs it’s very important to know how to do maintenance to this device. These vape mods need a lot of attention. Of course there are some low maintenance vape mods like most of the AIO vape mods.
