MECHANICAL MODS VS. VV/VW

Posted on August 11, 2015 by Paul McNamara

Are you an experienced vaper looking for the best e cigarette mods on the market? At Vaphilia, we have an impressive range of the most advanced and stylish mechanical and VV/VW mods available. Our mods are perfect for e-cigarette veterans looking for the best taste and vapour production possible.

WHAT ARE MODS?

When e cigarettes first arrived on the market some vapers began modifying them in order to improve their performance and battery life. Mod is short for modification and is used to describe both electronic cigarettes and other modified items such as modified atomisers. Mods come in all types of shapes and sizes.

MECHANICAL MODS

Mechanical mods are very basic personal vaporiser devices that have been modified to improve their performance but contain no electronic switches, regulators or chips.

VV/VW MODS

VV/VW stands for Variable Voltage/Variable Wattage and basically means that these kinds of mods allow you to control the voltage or wattage.

WHY CHOOSE ONE OR THE OTHER?

VV/VW Mods are generally easier for beginners as they come with built in safety features such as short circuit protection and overcharge protection. The most advanced mods also come with temperature control function you will find on theHeatvape Invader Mini 50W .

Mechanical Mods don’t come with any built in safety features and require an understanding of battery safety. A good guide to battery safety can be found here: http://onvaping.com/battery-safety-and-ohms-law/

Despite their limitations Mechanical mods are still a favourite amongst vapers for their simplicity and aesthetic appeal.

One of the most compact and portable mods on the market is the SMPL Mod (logoless clone) from Wotofo . One of the things that makes this product so effective is that it is a hybrid connection mod, meaning that it has a direct battery to atomiser connection which minimises voltage drop. (Hybrid connections should ever be used sub ohm tanks that do not have a adjustable 510 connection – this includes most such tanks currently on the market). This sleek looking mechanical mod comes in both the Stainless Steel and Black models. If you are searching for a clean, short and easy-to-use mod, then this is the one for you.
