New Mods For 2017 Every Vaper Should Get Excited About


2017 is off to a great start for the vaping community. As the number of people who have picked up vaping continue to rise, there have been big advancements when it comes to technology and design for these new devices that cater to both novice and advanced vapers.

Yes, this year is stacked with a whole lot of great looking and high performance mods, and what better way to start the new year with a new mod!

If your looking for a new device to buy, I’ve compiled this list of mods of all sizes for you to choose for your new all day device.

Whether you prefer big, bulky mods or sleek, stealth vapes, this list will give you a better idea for new mods to buy in 2017.


Vapor Shark SwitchBox RX 75 Watt TC Box Mod

This is probably the most affordable Vapor Shark unit you will find. This Vapor Shark/Wismec collaboration is a near perfect combination of quality and affordability.

It uses the high quality and ergonomic Switch body which was also used in the DNA 75 box mod, but also uses a more affordable Wismec RX75 chip. The front and back panels are also replaceable.

It can handle resistance from 0.1 to 3.5 ohms. It’s new OLED display shows you your output mode, temperature, power, voltage, current, and battery life.

At a time where more batteries are being crammed into vape devices, the SwitchBox is one of the few single 18650 mods that are out right now.

It’s a sleek but powerful device that should win the hearts of vapers who like a more concealed set-up they can bring along with them wherever they go.

Smoant RABOX Smart Mechanical Box Mod

The RABOX smart mechanical box mod is a mod in it’s own league both in design and performance. First off, you don’t see that many mech mods coming out due to a couple of reasons, but Smoant has intelligently bypassed all these problems with safety features installed in this unit.

The RABOX has a protection suite that includes low battery, resistance, over heating, and over use protections which should eliminate all fears of those who wanted to try a true mechanical mod.

It also utilizes a two mode Smart Mechanical Output that can be switched between a 5V Constant Output in High mode, or a traditional Direct Voltage Based Output based on battery state in Soft mode.

The RABOX is powered by an internal rechargeable 3300 mAh Lithium Polymer battery and can easily power most atomizers with it’s 0.10 ohm low resistance.

Personally, I think it’s a great looking mod that will draw attention and compliments from others.

The Vapor Flask has become an iconic design that has added to the popularity of Vapor Shark. The 2017 version of the Vapor Flask is definitely the best model of the Flask mod series. Now integrated with the new DNA 166 chip, the performance is up to date with the new atomizers that have come out recently. The new Zip Charging system also charges the dual 18650 batteries in only 90 minutes.

Another great upgrade of the Vapor Flask is the magnetic plates that gives a lot more easier access to your batteries compared to the older threaded battery discs.

Best DNA 200 Mods Of 2016


best_dna_200_mods_0f_2016_600x400


The Evolv DNA 200 chip has got to be the biggest thing that came out for vaping in 2016.

Vapers love the DNA chip because it is considered to be the most accurate in wattage and power output for vaping.

So for my friends who are planning on buying a DNA 200 mod, I decided to compile a list of these Evolv chip mods that I think is really worth the money.

The mods featured are still in stock and production. There were other mods that I wanted to include like the Lavabox, Reuleaux DNA 200 and the Efusion mod, but they are all out of stock in every website I go. These mods will need some more searching if you really want to get your hands on one of them.

I placed affiliate links in this post as well in case any of you wanted to buy the mods featured.

Any purchase you make through these links will really help me and my blog with putting out more content. It also helps me with my sponsors on getting more products and coupons featured for all of you.

There isn’t really a way for me to track who makes these purchases through these links so I’d like to say thank you to all of you out there for your continued support.

I also would like to thank those of you who leave comments about how you enjoy my posts and articles. It really gives me drive to do more for you all.

I just noticed I’m starting to get mushy, so here’s the best DNA 200 mods of 2016!



The Player box mod by Starss is a really cool looking mod in my opinion. It’s something that looks very modern and youthful.

Every part of the Player is customizeable, the back plates, buttons, everything. And they have some really cool color schemes for each mod. The Player is the type of mod that yells, “Hey, I’m a hip vaper!” Check out the different color combinations for yourself through the links below.

Although it is a DNA 200 mod, it only goes up to 133 watts in dual 18650 mode. If you want the full 200 watts, you would need to purchase the LiPo battery separately.

Just a note on using LiPo batteries, please make sure you have the right knowledge in dealing with these types of batteries since they are known to be sensitive to charging and can burn when mishandled.

Another mod on the list I am aesthetically attracted to is the Panzer Box Mod by Think Vape.

I love the boxy, bulky look and the two tone color scheme. The people who have bought and used this mod say it is very well-built and feels strong. You know, it won’t crack whenever you drop or tip it over.

This is another internal battery mod, so take precaution when charging.

If you want a more sleek, ergonomically correct DNA 200 mod, your best bet is the Triade Triple 18650.

I’ve done another post in where I go into more details about the Triade, check it out if this mod looks like something you’d like to have!

For me, the best thing about the SDNA 200 is all the DNA 200 settings are done for you. Some DNA 200 are not preset so you would need someone who knows how to use Evolv so you can get the full SS, Nichrome, Titanium, etc. experience. Of course this is only needed if you use these settings.

Lastly we have the VT 133 mod which is a dual 18650 battery mod and goes up to 133 watts.

It’s not the newest mod on the list, but in terms of stability and how it performs, the VT 133 definitely deserves a spot on this list.

4 Of The Ugliest Vape Mods Nobody Ever Wanted


Today we talk about the vape mods that never appealed to vapers because of how they looked and/or how they functioned.

Here’s a list of 4 vaping devices a lot of people thought were too ugly and didn’t bother ever buying.


1. Hell’s Gate Box Mod by Yep – What the HELL is this? Apparently the makers of this atrocity was trying to give cloud chasing a whole new meaning.

Not only did the Hell’s Gate mod look stupid and awkward to use, it didn’t make any sense for vapers to buy this. Guess not too many people like the idea of vaping on 2 different atomizers at the same time.

hells-gate-box-mod

*Special mention* The Chainsmoker Box Mod – Same concept and just as ridiculous. The advantage the Chainsmoker has is it’s better made.

chainsmoker-vape-box-mod


2. Bigger Triple 18650 Box Mod by Vapecige – Bigger is not always better. That’s what many thought when the Bigger box mod first came out. This thing is huge!

What looks more like a back-up battery pack than a vape mod, Bigger was just too big for vapers to enjoy. Can you imagine tugging this around in public?

Bystander: Hey, what’s that?

You: Ugh, it’s my vape! My Bigger mod! I’m vaping! In case you didn’t notice!

Bystander: Nah, I saw you two blocks away with that thing!

3. Cool Fire 2 by Innokin – In another WTF moment in mod making, Innokin thought it would be a good idea to create a device that looked like a freakin’ hand grenade! Good luck going through the airport with that.

Just in case you wanted one, the Cool Fire 2 only uses a 18350 battery which is below par with today’s standard of vaping so in other words it’s a piece of shit and don’t buy it, unless you still vape on those Vivi Nova clearomizers.

And if that isn’t bad enough, check out the FITH S100 Grenade mod below which REALLY looks like a hand grenade. Looks way better than the Cool Fire 2, but hopefully you won’t freak the people out when you vape on this in public.

fith-s100-grenade-mod

*Special mention* The Pineapple Mod – I guess when Innokin finally realized that the Cool Fire 2 was going to flop, they ceased production and sold off the mod casings to some other company. They in turn thought that a pineapple would look better than a hand grenade!

pineapple-mod


4. Touch 200W Box Mod by Hell’s Gate (and every other touch screen vape mod put out so far– What better way to finish off this list that to top it off with another Hell’s Gate mod!

The Touch 200w box mod looks like a first gen iPod. To me, the whole touch screen thing isn’t really necessary in vaping. It’s a cool concept, but I can do without it.

Not only is it an ugly mod, but according to some reviewers it performs like shit. One reviewer gave it the “Worst Mod of 2016” title.
