That is a very good question. There are so many different types of pens, tube mods, regulated mods and unregulated mods. And within those, there is a wide verity of color, size, shape, wattage, touch screen and the list go’s on. Never mind what atomizer to put on it. So what is the best vape mod for me?
The vape pen
The “Vape Pen” is the most common vaporizer people start with. With its rechargeable in-house batteries and extra tank and wicks all in one simple caring case. The vape pen could last you all day depending on how often you use it.Popular models are the eGo, EVOD, and KGo and others. It typically comes as a kit and it can be a great way to start.
It doesn’t have a lot of power (We will get into wattage a little bit later) It still puts out a lot of vapor. In the lack of power and size, it curves the urge to have a cigarette. If you are new to vaping and you tried to quite smoke cold turkey the vape pen can and will help you quite from smoking.
The Tube Mod
The tube mod, APV’s is bigger than the vapor pen, About the same size as a cigar. It has more
power and you can put different atomizer (All so-called RDA, RDTA) on it. The tube mod will have separate batterers and is fully
functional to change the wattage and temperature where the vape pen doesn’t. Now you can get a tube mods that are unregulated. You really need to be experienced in “Ohm’s Law” These are the mods that you’ve been hearing about exploding. Because of the extended batterers life, this mod has triple the vapor production. You will not be disappointed. This mod will last due to its rugged construction. This is a mod for any level smoker.
A regulated mod is any mod that you can change the settings. (Temperature and wattage) It comes with a chip in it so you cannot overload it and explode. It will look like the tube mod or like a box. The box mod is about the size as a pack of cigarettes.
A regulated box mod will have more functions like a larger digital display, veritable wattage, ohm readings, temperature, voltage, and amp readings. Some even have a touch screen. The batteries are a 3.7-volt lithium ion cell and replaceable.
They fit and feel very good in your hand. This is my personal favorite mod. There easier to carry and there very comfortable. And when using the right tank this will give you an excellent vape.
Generally, this type of mod is the most popular to the seasoned person. This is not for a beginner, If you are I would start out with a vapor pen first and get used to it making sure that vaping will work for you to help quit smoking first. It takes about five to seven days to get used to vaping. From my experience vaping opens up your lungs.
My lungs were very tight from smoking cigarettes. When I first tried vaping I coughed a bit the first three-day while getting used to it. But after that it was great! I loved the all the flavors, my sense of smell came back as well as my sense of taste. I could defiantly feel a big difference in my lungs. I could breath better. I said I wasn’t wheezing at night anymore. That’s was a big plus for me.
What is an atomizer?
The atomizer is a tank that holds the e-juice and has natural cotton wicks that get saturated with the e-juice and wicks up to the coil. The coil is attached to a positive and negative lead in the atomizer. And when you push the fire button the coil heats up and vaporizes the e-juice to vapor.
The vapor is produced from the coil. The coil is a small gauge wire ranging anywhere from .40-.22g. You can put all different combinations of wire together wrap them around a 3.0 mm post to create its shape. (See pictures bellow) Once it has it’s shape then it’s installed into your atomizer. (Also known as RTA, RDTA) This is something you can learn and do yourself. Coil making has become an art form as you can see.
My favorite between the RDA and RTDA is the RDA. I just better flavor from an RDA. The only downfall to the RDA to some people is you have to drip your e-liquid into the top. An RDA only holds about 1 ml of liquid. So it’s a repetitive process. To me is worth it due to how good the flavor it produces. 1 ml equates to about four to five in-hauls.
