These devices are mainly controlled through the airflow on the tanks, and they don’t offer control for the user, just a range of wattage depending on charge.

For a more consistent experience, many enthusiasts live and die by variable mods. The boxes allow the user to control the wattage output of the device for a personalized experience. There are tons of different mods to pick from with a huge variant of wattage ranges. The best part about box mods is the ability to work with just about any tank or coil on the market. Just make sure the coil’s wattage can be reached by the mod itself.

4 - Mechanical Mods


Mechanical mods are for the hardcore vape users, and they require a bit more technical knowledge. The entire goal of mechanical mods is to provide the user with the perfect vape experience ever time because the user made the build, but you can buy them online. These devices are unregulated machines that have no circuit board. That means they just let it rip, so to speak, when it comes to hitting it. Intense clouds and quick rips are the mechanical mod’s claim to fame. These are for the experience and knowledgeable vapers out there that want to make clouds on clouds.
