If you are someone who is looking for more out of your electronic cigarette or, are looking for something new entirely like an APV (Advanced Personal Vaporizer) or vape mod, you’ve come to the right place.
This page features reviews of the best vape mods and “mod style” vaping kits for 2018. Use this section to find the vaping mod/APV/box mod, etc. that suits you best.
For many of us who make the switch from being full time smokers to full time vapers, vaping often becomes our little hobby and for some like myself, it almost goes as far as being a passion.
It’s almost a running joke among my close friends how we always try to hide how much we spend on this stuff. For me, it’s great fun and is still much less expensive (in so many ways) than smoking would be.
I spent over $3000.00 every year on tobacco (close to $60,000.00 in my lifetime).
I have never even come close to spending $1000.00 per year on vaping accessories, mods and such, but somehow spending $10.00 at a time on a pack of smokes feels like less psychologically than dropping a few hundred dollars all at once on a single mod.
Weird I know, but that’s how it goes…
So if you’re reading this page, you are probably like myself and have some experience vaping.
Hopefully you’ve now quit smoking altogether and you are looking to explore other possibilities in an effort to take more control of your vaping experience than a simple cigalike or variable voltage ego style e-cig can offer.
You’ve probably seen videos of modded e-cig users exhaling clouds of vapor so thick you can’t even see through them.
My first exposure to a good mod was at a little vape shop in Montreal where the dealer was straight inhaling huge hits and exhaling the most vapor I had ever seen.
He put on a new tip for me and let me use it, and I was blown away at the difference between that and my more traditional ego style “spinner”.
When he first handed it to me and told me I could straight-inhale, it took me a minute to understand exactly what he meant.
I was so used to mouth-to-lung vaping, the same way I used to smoke, I had never even considered direct lung inhaling until that point.
Vaping Mods can seem overwhelming at first as it seems like there is so much to learn, so let’s start just with the basics for now by looking at what a “mod” actually is.
The word mod as you may have guessed is just a shortened version of the word modified and that’s really all it means.
Initially, mods were either home-made, or home-modified devices built by techies to extend the battery life and sometimes the size of the tanks on their devices.
As things progressed, variable wattage became something that was added to most modded battery setups on top of the variable voltage that was already available in many ego style batteries.
Some of the newer box mods on the market now even offer temperature control!
The word mod or mods now refers pretty much to any type of electronic cigarette that steps out of the traditional cigalike or ego style vape pens into a world of it’s own and could more aptly be called an advanced personal vaporizer or APV.
Because the world of vape mods is so vast, and changing on a daily basis, my plan with this section is to guide you through some of the more basic mods to start you off, and let your imagination take you from there.
I loved to smoke while I did, and I smoked for over 20 years. I have now come to love vaping even more and I never seem to grow tired of trying out new devices, e-liquids, etc.
When I speak about those who like to push the envelope, I guess I am one at this point. One thing is for sure, vaping isn’t boring!
With electronic cigarettes, vaping mods, add-ons, upgrades and so on, we really could go on for days. I hope this section provided a nice jumping off point and was helpful in increasing your overall vaping experience and pleasure.
