Have you been thinking of upgrading your unit lately? Are you starting to grow tired of it’s look and feel? Have videos of variable voltage mods been getting more of your interest and attention lately?
If so, it might be time to get an upgrade. Read this post about what to do before upgrading to a mod if you haven’t. If you don’t have the budget for it, don’t fret. Here is a list of the top 3 best rated variable voltage mods on the market that won’t break bank!
Everyone I have came across who owns an MVP swears by it, and why shouldn’t they? It has a 2600 mah battery, that’s a lot battery life. Your usual E-Go battery has 900-1,300 mah. Imagine the time you have in using the MVP without having to charge. It also has tons of skin wraps so you can “pimp” your mod to pretty much however you want.
A popular choice among many vapers, here’s proof that a variable voltage mod that’s under $50 can vape and perform just as good as its high-end counterparts. Sure it looks like a Tiki god with a round mouth, but the performance is there folks! People who love to customize their units will be glad that tons of skin wraps for this is mod are available.
And right under the 50 dollar mark comes the SID. This was dubbed the “Vamo Killer” since it also targeted the budget-conscious. Beautfiul stock design that does not need customization. LED display is clear, with a user-friendly interface. Has an ohms checker for people who do their own builds.
Who said mods had to be expensive? Do your research, there are plenty of mods that offer quality vape at good prices. Here are some places that are worth checking out for good valued mods:
My Freedom Smokers – Everything mods, digital and mechanical, along with accessories and parts.
Madvapes – One of the longest running vape online shops, with a wide variety of vaping products at good prices.
Fairy Gate – One of the best priced site for clones I have come across, they give Fastech a run for their money.
I love mods! I’m not trying to sound like an advanced vaper who has graduated from the simple e-go set up. I just feel that mods hit my sweet spot when it comes to vaping. Mechanical mods to be exact. I find variable voltage mods to be a little too complex for me, so I am not an ohm’s freak and haven’t gotten to that part of vaping yet.
That being said, I come across a bunch of sick looking mods everyday on the internet. Some of these mods I have in my collection, some I am having a hard time getting or still saving up for. I find these mods to be very appealing, and can also be a good conversation piece with your vape buddies.
So here it is, my top 5 best looking mods that are currently in the market. Let’s start with the Empire mod.
4. The Empire Mod / K100 Mod
When I first saw this mod, it was love at first sight. I mean look at it, isn’t she beautiful? Sure, the design is a bit dated, but I can’t think of other mods that have drawn so much appeal for me than the Empire / K100 mod. This is the very first mod that I bought, and I have no regrets. I still use it till this very day, and it still gets compliments from time to time. Empire Mods sell their signature mod for $140, while Hoosier Vapes sell the K100 clone for $30.
3. The Valkyrie Mod
I must admit, my people from the Philippines know how to make mods. In my honest opinion, this has got to be the most aesthetic looking mod in the market right now. Look at those curves! In the words of the late Steve Irwin, “She’s a beauty, mate!” The company Vicious Ant has other great models in their line up, but there is something about the Valkyrie that just makes me drool. Vape Street has them in stock right now for $200, while for those who don’t want to blow 2 Benjamins on a mod can get the clone at Fast Tech for $29.
2. 50 Cal Bullet Mod
What the hell is this? This would look great in anyone’s collection. You could even leave it standing on your desk and it would still look good. It just shows how creative manufacturers are becoming when it comes to making mods. This may not appeal to everybody, but I have been very keen on buying this mod because it would look sick in my collection. The problem is it never seems to be in stock whenever I check. Very elusive. I don’t know how much it costs, but I do know that v3 Tronix has the hook up and is selling these beautiful pieces on their site, if only they had them in stock.
1. The NES mod
The Nintendo Entertainment System. This devices brings a flood of good childhood memories of sleepless nights and spending hours in front of the TV with friends and family. To see this reincarnated as a mod just brings out that inner child excitement in me. I came across this mod while looking at different customized mods on the internet. I was like, “Damn! I MUST have this!” It’s a freakin’ Nintendo game controller mod! Enough said! Litt Up Custom E-Cigs has a Facebook page where you can pre-order it. It takes about 8-10 weeks to ship and costs $130. This is actually a variable voltage mod, which means you can adjusts the watts on it. I hear it also performs very well. It may seem pricey, but I think it is money well spent, especially with all the nostalgia it brings to people who grew up on the NES.
Clearomizers: They were an amazing little device that fascinated me when I started vaping. As I most carefully would pour e-juice in my clearomizer tank not getting any juice in that little hole at the top, I would study how it worked. The wicks would capture the juice and absorb it to the top where a tiny atomizer would heat the saturated wick and then produce the precious vapor.
However, as I started investing in other vape products I noticed how the taste and vapor in dripping atomizers was much better. I realized how my clearomizer had a wick aftertaste (ewww).
I ditched my 5ml Vivi Nova for the Igo-L I had just gotten at the time. I ended up giving away my clearomizer and never used another one again.
Recently though, I have come across the newer models out in the market right now, and I have to say that clearomizers have come a long way from the first time I used them.
I guess the clearomizer manufacturers read my thoughts and upgraded heavy. The new clearomizers are bottom feed as opposed to the traditional top feed set-up. This gives a purer flavor since it gets rid of most of the wick. As for vapor production, they have that covered too. Airflow adjustment is a must feature for these new clearomizers.
Based on user reviews and interview buzz, I have paired off 2 clearomizer tanks you should look into if you are in the market for these types of tanks.
All I see is nothing but good reviews about this tank by people who have purchased the Nautilus. The reviews that were negative were about the delivery time and/or customer service of the website but never about this product.
It’s a 510 clearomizer tank that has a great quality build, durable Pyrex glass, adjustable airflow (an insane 4-airhole system); most importantly though, the coils in these things are amazing! Flavor and vapor are amazing. Just YouTube the Aspire Nautilus tank and see for yourself.
The pre-installed atomizer is has a resistance of 1.6 ohms, meaning 18-20 watts would be the sweet spot for this tank. IndoorSmokers recommends users to pair the Nautilus with at least an E-Go Mega (variable voltage) or Vision Spinner for best results. The atomizer lasts a long time, and the package comes with an extra atomizer (1.8 ohms). It also has a generous capacity of 5ml for you to chain vape on your favorite e-juice all day.
The newest update to this tank is the BVC (bottom vertical coil) build, which is a big improvement to the previous BDC (bottom dual coil) set-up. I have read somewhere that this not only improves the taste and vapor production but it also enables the Aspire Nautilus tank to perform with higher wattage mods. Good news is the BVC atomizer is compatible with the original BDC tanks, another good move by Aspire.
Much respect to KangerTech, they were in my previous list of best clearomizer tanks when they came out with the Kanger Protank. They have done it again with the Kanger Aerotank Mega, a high end looking tank at the same price as the Aspire Nautilus.
In my opinion, this looks way better than the Aspire Nautilus. It takes a page out of the Kayfun’s book with the stainless steel cover or the Pyrex glass tank which I think is great. The dial airflow system is also worth mentioning. 510 compatible drip tip so you can customize it even more.
However, I think it falls short when compared to the Nautilus because of two things, capacity and the airflow adjustment. It only holds 3.8ml of juice in its tank compared to the Nautilus’ 5. The airflow hole gets bigger as you turn the dial but completely closes when you turn the dial past the maximum air hole opening. I just wonder what would happen if you accidentally close the air hole in the middle of a drag.
It also uses the previous BDC system the Aspire Nautilus has scraped with their new and improved vertical coil. The stock and replacement coil has a resistance of 2 ohms.
But what’s this? The Aerotank Mega also sells sub-ohm coils? Yes! A 0.8 build is also for sale for all you cloud chasers out there. This is also compatible with other KangerTech tanks.
