With so many vaporizers on the market, it can get confusing to try and distinguish between every different model type, let alone specific brands and customization parts. One popular device for beginners to advance vapers alike is the box mod.
But what’s a box mod, exactly? This article will get into some of the details about box mods, how they work, key features, and of course, all of the positives.
What’s a Box Mod?
Compared to other vaporizer devices, box mods pack a lot more power. They’re usually much larger than standard pens or pod set ups to house a bigger battery. And that bigger battery means they last much longer than other devices.
The name “box mod” comes from the two major aspects that define this vaporizer device. The obvious one being it’s larger, rectangular, box-like shape. The mod aspect comes from users ability to customize and modify different components on the device.
Features and components that can be modified might include things like temperature control, atomizers that can be swapped in and out, as well as adjusting the intensity of vapor that hits the throat.
Regardless of its more custom build, box mods function just like any other vaporizer. The battery still heats up the coil, which receives the e-liquid from a wick and turns it into vapor. Some specifics might change depending on the build, but the general process remains mostly the same.
Key Features of Box Mods
So if a box mod is just like other vaporizers, with just a little more power, why would anyone choose to use one? Much of their appeal has to do with the clear advantages in features box mods have over other vape devices.
Temperature control in vaporizing seems like it would be kind of trivial. What could the difference really mean for a casual user? Well, temperature control allows for the user to regulate and adjust their device to perfectly suit their vaping experience.
Sometimes vape devices hit too hot for individual’s personal preferences. Other, cheaper vape devices might feel dry in the mouth and lack flavor. With temperature control, the user always has a custom experience that best suits their style. And that only comes with box mods.
Additionally, you may want to vape different e-liquid flavors at different temperatures. Temperature plays a major role in the vape flavor experience in general, and it will be entirely up to individual preferences.
However, e-liquids with more fruit-forward and citrus flavors like peach, strawberry, and our own Loudade series tend to produce a bolder flavor experience at lower temperatures. While high temperatures are a better fit for classics like our Camel Bros. and Port 100s, which tend to taste more like natural tobacco, and anything with coffee or chocolate.
You’ll have to experiment with your own box mod setup to get to the bottom of it.
One of the biggest trends you’re probably noticing with the box mod is the aspect of control. And you’re also probably noticing what an impact that level of control can have on the vaping experience!
A major feature of box mods is the ability to control wattage, and therefore the overall power of your device. Or at least the amount of power delivered to the atomizer by the battery.
So how does power change things? Well, more power (at a higher wattage) accelerates the vape process at a much faster rate. Meaning the intensity of the experience and overall feeling of the vape hit can change dramatically.
But what exactly does this mean? Why should anyone care about wattage control? It sounds confusing.
Nonsense! Wattage control is a major benefit of box mods that allows for a much deeper level of customization. Wattage effects many aspects of the vaping experience, including:
- How flavor tastes (i.e. temperature)
- How much vapor (or nicotine, if applicable) is received per hit
- The level of throat hit or feel
Basically wattage control allows you to vape how you want to vape. Personal styles and approaches vary. Some people prefer the ability to comfortably take big hits and create huge clouds while others simply want to be able to enjoy their vaping experience discreetly.
Longer Battery Life
If you’re coming to vaping from a previous life as a smoker, you understand the level of convenience that vapes can offer over traditional tobacco. But nothing’s worse than getting ready to enjoy a nice vape hit only to realize you forgot to charge your device before leaving the house.
Never again with a box mod! Because of their increased size and power output, box mods need a much larger battery. And usually, the battery is of a much higher quality than other, cheaper disposable devices.
And if you’re utilizing a vaporizer as a means to stop smoking, you can’t afford to be in a situation that could potentially lead to a relapse over a dead battery.
The Power of Sub-ohm Vaping
A more recent trend to hit the world of vaping is called sub-ohm vaping. Sub-ohm vaping involves customizing box mods with sub-ohm atomizers to the internal battery, which significantly alters the vaping experience as a whole.
Ohms are the unit of measurement used to determine the amount of resistance applied to the electrical signal traveling from the battery to the atomizer.
When a vaper attaches a sub-ohm atomizer to their box mod, the resistance decreases which in turn lets a higher electrical current pass through the atomizer. The “sub” comes from the resistance level, which is less than 1 ohm.
Does that sound a little intense? Don’t let it scare you, it doesn’t change the safety of your box mod. Basically sub-ohm vaping allows for ridiculously large vape clouds and even more intense flavor from your e-liquids.
Customize Your Tank, Your Way
And that’s really the major benefit of using a box mod. The bar for entry might be a little more expensive, but the longterm benefits mean that your investment is more likely to payoff. Especially if you see yourself as a longtime vaper.
And since you can customize your box mod with multiple, interchangeable atomizers, you’ll always have the right flavors and setups to suit your situation. With an activity like vaping, the best experiences come with control. And nothing else in the industry gives you the type of control that box mods do.
