What Is a Vape Mod?
The vape tank and the battery unit are the two main components that make up a vape kit. As the industry has evolved over time, the battery unit has come to be known by the term Mod. So whenever you hear somebody referring to a vape Mod, all they are talking about is a battery unit. You may not know but just like mobile phones, lithium ion batteries lose their power over time and are listed to have a life expectancy of around 500 recharges before you start to notice a drop in performance.
Are you noticing your battery isn't lasting as long as it used to? Chances are the battery is reaching the end of its life expectancy and will need replacing. When it comes to shopping for a new vape Mod, there are a few options to consider. Most people like a nice compact battery unit however, smaller units will require more frequent charges due to their small batteries. The capacity of a battery is measured in Milliamps Per Hour of mAh and the greater the mAh the longer the battery will last between charges.
Types of Mods
There are many different types of vape Mods on the market but we have broken it down into four main categories. Single battery Mods are great if you're looking for something compact yet powerful. Single battery mods can usually power upto around 80 watts and have a removable battery, perfect for when the battery eventually dies and needs replacing.
Next we have Dual battery vape Mods which are the same as mentioned above but with twice the battery capacity. Some people prefer a 2 battery Mod not just for the increased lifespan between charges but because they can output over 200 watts of power resulting in huge vapour production.
We find that most compact vape kits come with a built in battery Mod. This means that the battery is safely sealed inside the unit and can not be accessed or changed meaning that when the battery finally reaches the end of its lifespan, you will have to dispose of the whole Mod as you can not access the battery compartment. Most people prefer a Mod with a removable battery so that they can replace it when it eventually dies rather than throwing the whole Mod away.
Lastly we have Mechanical Mods. Now these types of Mods are strictly for professional/competition vapers as they have absolutely no built in safety features. Essentially a Mechanical Mod is a hollow metal tube that the battery sits inside and connects straight to the tank. Most users of Mechanical Mods use specialised vape tanks that work on hand built coils and if you build your coil at the wrong resistance, you might put too much stress on the battery which will result in an explosion. Again, these are for professionals only.
