The world of vaping has changed dramatically since the “Wild, Wild West” days of a few years ago. What used to be one or two choices is now literally dozens. That has come with the good, as in thousands of e juice suppliers and just as many options, the bad, as in politicians meddling with the industry and the complex, as in figuring out what type of vaping system works for you. To help you with the last if you are just getting into vaping, here are the basics.
Chip or No Chip
Regulated mods come with a chip that gives you control over multiple features, including battery management, wattage, temperature, memory, etc., that help you manage your vape experience. The chip is basically a mini-computer that tracks and stores all that info to get the most out of vaping.
Battery output management is the essential non-safety feature you sacrifice with an unregulated mod. An unregulated mod pulls off the battery whatever juice is in there until there is nothing left.
By far, however, the biggest difference is the safety features. Unregulated mods do not have any safety features at all. Regulated mods have multiple safety features, including wattage regulation, automatic shut off and verification of tank compatibility.
Mods coming to main shapes: Cylindrical and rectangular. Cylindrically shaped mods are called Pen mods. Rectangular shaped mods are called box mods.
The pros of a pen mod are that it is inexpensive, has a tank battery and charging cable, is incredibly easy to use and is both durable and highly portable.
The benefits of a box mod are excellent vapor production, long battery life, a wide variety of tank options, many features, interchangeable batteries and they tend to be very reliable and consistent in vape quality.
If there’s any component to the newer vape systems, the best resembles the early days, it is the tanks. Except for the connection, there is virtually nothing that is standard. The type of tank you choose has no impact on the vaping liquid you want to try out, but if you’re really up in the air on vaping liquid, you may want to look for deals on samples of e-liquid wholesale products, so you do not up with a bunch of product you do not like.
A lack of standards on tanks, however, is one of the best aspects of picking out your vape system. Because the FDA and meddling politicians have not gotten involved, about the only thing you have to worry about is the wattage range of your mod and whether your tank can handle it.
That covers the basics in vape selection. You still have to decide what type of wholesale vape juice you want, which is purely up to you. Other than that, once you cover the basics above, your device is charged and you have gone through your e juice suppliers to find the best deals, you’re ready to go.
