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.


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


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.


*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!


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.


Are there any other mods that aren’t on the list that you would like to share with everyone? Have any of you had experience with these mods? Let me know in the comments section.

Product Review: Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 Mod From GearBest

The Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 by Jay Bo Designs. This item in review was given to me by GearBest

Have you been thinking whether or not to get the new Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 mod?

If you don’t own one, it’s critical that you listen to me right now. Stop all that wondering and doubting and go get yourself one ASAP!

You are honestly missing out on a very enjoyable and affordable mod as every second fleets by without this in your hand!

This is my most used and favorite mod at this moment. I’m already excited about telling you how the Reuleaux RX2/3 mod won me over completely.

GearBest is selling the RX 2/3 for a great price right now.

How I got the Reuleaux RX2/3 mod

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on another Reuleaux because I loved the RX200 so much.Luckily I was fortunate enough to be given this mod for free to review!

My friends at GearBest reached out to me and asked if I wanted to test this mighty fine piece of vape machinery.

I agreed to use this new Wismec-Jay Bo collaboration mod and give my opinion on it.

What did they do this time?

We all saw the evolution of the Reuleaux. The initial RX200 was a solid triple 18650 mod. This was followed up by the RX200S. The screen and interface had major updates but the design and features were identical to the RX200.

The major renovation for the RX2/3 mod this time is the design. Same screen and interface with the RX2/3, but now you can use either 2 or 3 18650 batteries thanks to a special back cover.

Got this mod pretty quick from GearBest

This product came pretty quick from GearBest. I got it within a week of them contacting me about the review. Pretty fast if you ask me considering it was shipped from China.

Contents that were in the box was the new featured dual 18650 back cover, the user manual and a USB chord that are all in the picture below.

What’s in the box: battery back cover for dual 18650 mode, user manual and USB cord.

I love the new dual 18650 battery mode!

The dual 18650 mode makes the Reuleaux RX 2/3 feel like a totally different mod. It’s a lot more light, comfortable, and ergonomic in my hand whenever I use it in dual 18650 mode.

The new back cover surprisingly slims down the mod to a size you wouldn’t think was possible and turns it into a sleek but powerful vape mod, 150 watts without firmware upgrade.

The dual 18650 mode makes the Reuleax a nice portable mod that I tug along with me when I’m outdoors.

The RX2/3 mod has a solid build as well; no rattles at all whenever I shake it.

Here’s the RX 2/3 in the new and sexy dual 18650 mode. This reduces the size of the mod greatly!

Some other new features of the RX2/3 mod

While the 2 previous Reuleaux used magnetic locks for the battery cover, the RX2/3 uses a new release button located underneath the mod. The button doesn’t make any contact when you let the mod stand up straight.

The back cover on the previous Reuleaux mods were easier for me to work with but this new back cover isn’t hard to use at all. Now you have to push in the back cover until it locks, a little more complicated compared to just snapping on the back cover like in the previous models.

No more magnet locks. Back cover is held in by switch which is located underneath the mod.

The RX2/3 mod is easy to use

I really like how easy it is using the RX2/3 mod. It didn’t take long for me to learn how to navigate through the menu and know all the functions. And I’m a pretty average guy so don’t think it takes a genius to learn how to use this thing.

The screen is big and bright just like the RX200S mod and it stayed on for a good 36 seconds before the screen went idle when I tried counting it. This gives you lots of time to check your wattage and mode after a vape.

Lots of colors to choose from and customizeable!

The RX 2/3 mod has 6 finishes for you to choose from. There’s Silver/Gray, flat Black, Cyan/Grey, Red/Black, Gold and Matte White.

The front plates can be removed as well and be replaced with other RX 2/3 front and back plates which gives you the option to change colors to give your mod a different vibe.

Does it have any cons?

With so many great things about the RX2/3 mod, does it have any cons?

In my case, it had to be the back cover in terms of fitting it in. It isn’t hard to use but at the same time it isn’t as easy to use either compared to the previous Reuleaux mods. I know Wismec might’ve had to make that change because of the special back covers, but the magnet locks for me was something that was not broken.

Another thing that wasn’t really a con for me but I could see some people complaining about it so I decided to include it. As you can see in the picture below the front and back plates don’t fit perfectly flush to the frame.

Front and back plates are fully changeable so you can swap out different color of plates for a different look.

I dropped this mod once pretty bad, so I’m not sure if that’s what caused it to not fit flush or if it’s really just made like that. I’m sure its fixable if I take it apart but wouldn’t want to go through the hassle. I don’t really mind the gaps.

That was all I could really think of when it came to cons for this mod. But all in all, the RX2/3 mod is a well built and beautifully designed mod with an easy interface, all the new features, and currently a mod in it’s own league with the dual or triple battery housing option.

The Reuleaux RX2/3 is currently available at a crazy low price at GearBest. Click on the buy button below!

Awesome Mods In 2016 That Are Under $50

You don't need to spend more than $50 for these great mods!
You don’t need to spend more than $50 for these great mods!

Now that the FDA has the authority to approve new vape products being marketed here in the U.S., we won’t be sure when the next time a new mod will come out. We are in Limbo right now with whatever vape products that are currently out here in America.

Fortunately, 2016 was a great year for vape mods. There were quite a number of products that were put out this year that offered great vape quality at an affordable price.

Which brings me to my post for today, best vape mods under $50 in 2016.

4. Mini Volt 40W

2016 will be remembered as a year where compact, mini mods were the craze, and the Mini Volt might be considered as the most popular mini mod in it’s class.

Vapers love how well-built it is. For such a small mod, you get lots of power out of it. Though 40 watts may not sound like a lot, many vapers who vape at the 25 watt – 40 watt range love this mod regardless.

It’s design is definitely a looker. The carbon fiber print and matte paint if a great combination. The Mini Volt version now comes with speed charging (takes approximately 1 hour to fully charge), has a battery saving mode and can now flip the display to where you can either use your index finger or thumb to fire.

Probably the only con on this mod is there is no temperature control, this is probably because it only vapes at 40 watts max, which isn’t too hot of a vape. This is for vapers who just want something they can vape on while on the go.

A small package with big features, the Mini Volt continues to be the go to mod of compact mod fans. A nice, portable, and a reliable little mod that you can take with you anywhere. The best part is it’s priced under $50!

3. iPower 80W TC 5000

The next inexpensive mod on the list is the iPower 80 watt 5000 mAh box mod. Now Eleaf is a reputable vape mod manufacturer, so the efficiency of this mod isn’t really in question.

What is impressive about this mod is it has an internal battery capacity of 5000 mAh, lots of battery life to get you through the whole day.

And another great thing about this mod is you won’t need to buy batteries. 5000 mAh is about 2 18650 batteries put together. No need to bring with you an extra pair of batteries when you have this with you.

Another great thing about the iPower is it comes in many color, and also comes in a wood design finish. Not many other mods have that.

What you probably like the most about the iPower is you get temperature control, 80 watts of power, long battery and all this will cost you under $50!

2. iStick Pico 75W

If you came across a person who loved mini mods, they would either have the Mini Volt, or the iStick Pico 75 watt mod in their collection.

This is also a fave among mini mod enthusiasts. One of the points it has above the Mini Volt is that it houses a single 18650 battery, giving it more battery life compared to the Volt.

It also has higher wattage capacity, 75 compared to 40 watts. The minimalist design and up and down wattage buttons below have some people preferring the Pico over the Volt.

And the great thing about this is it comes as a kit! it comes with the Melo Mini Sub-Ohm tank, and it’s all priced under $50!

1. Reuleaux RX200S 200W

Right now, the Reuleaux RX200S 200W box mod is priced right under $50 at Vapor DNA. If you don’t know about this mod or don’t have one, I suggest you pick one up right now as every serious vaper I know already has this in their inventory.

To give a brief summary, it’s a mod that has all the new features, compatible with all types of builds, and houses 3 18650 batteries. Oh, and it also goes up to 200 watts.

So that’s features, power, and battery life your getting all under $50! Add to that the slick, ergonomic design that vapers love.

So there it is, some mods that give you a lot for under $50. No need to break the bank on these lovelies. These mods will surely up your vaping experience without leaving a strain in your pocket!
