How do you determine if you are ready to take the next step in vaping? I got into mods after watching videos of cloud chasers blowing ridiculous amounts of vapor. I told myself, “I want to do that!”
What I didn’t realize was that these people spent a lot of time and money in perfecting this art. I feel I bought my first mod prematurely and didn’t get to enjoy it until 3 months after I bought it.
You have to realize that once you get into mods, you have already taken the step from being a casual vaper to an enthusiast. This now becomes a hobby which now requires knowledge, skills, and money in order to become enjoyable.
1. Do Your Research – there is a lot of details that goes into using mods effectively. You have to have some understanding of how electricity works, ohms, connections, and other stuff. There are many user friendly tutorials on YouTube that explain how mods work. Watch at least 5 different videos about this in order for you to get an understanding of how it works.
Most importantly, know the safety measures in handling mods. Mechanical mods are powered by high drain batteries. These are hardcore batteries that, when handled improperly, can explode! I have actually witnessed someones battery explode in there jacket pocket because they were unprotected and exposed. This is how powerful they are.
2. Get Familiar With RDA’s (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers) – I say this because regular clearomizer tanks on a mechanical mod are not a good mix. You don’t have to worry about this if you are using a variable voltage mod.
Since mechanical mods uses battery, the output tends to drop after some use. Unlike the e-go or a variable voltage mod, the output is pretty consistent, so you get a consistent vape out of a clearomizer tank. RDA’s work best with mechanical mods, and when dealing with them, you have to have knowledge and skill in rebuilding which is a whole other topic in itself.
3. Have Some Money Ready – Mods cost more. Additionally, you have to buy other stuff to make it work. Batteries, wire, wick, and a charger at least. What I also noticed was, I go through e-juice much more quicker compared to my clearomizer and cartomizer tanks.
Doing these things will ensure you get the best vaping experience out of mods. It took me some time to get used to, but after I got the hang of it, I was hooked!
