Your mod is that part of your vape that holds the battery, and sends power to your coil, in order to vaporise the liquid. Vape mods come in various different sizes and power ratings depending on what you’re looking for. Some come with built in batteries for convenience, some have removable batteries for a longer battery life. There’s a huge selection of choice and it really depends on what needs you have as a vaper. Whether it’s simplicity you’re after, or things like temperature control and bypass mode.
We’ve listed below the different types of mods that are available, and their main purposes.
It is important to note that different mods have different limits on how much power they can output. So it’s important to make sure, if buying a mod and tank separately, that the mod you choose can provide enough power to run your tank. For example if you have a tank that uses coils that are recommended at 70 watts, you wouldn’t be able to run it on a mod that can only output 50 watts.
Regulated mods allow you to adjust your settings and power output to your vape coils and are the most common style of vape device you’ll come across. Regulated mods are sometimes referred to as box mods and typically have built in safety features such as short circuit and reverse polarity protection to keep you safe. There are two main styles of regulated mod, those with removable / replaceable batteries and those with built in batteries that are non replaceable.
Some industry favourites are the Geekvape Aegis Legend 2, for example. This mod is an update to the original and is a true successor to the title “Legend” . A dual removable battery mod, it has an IP67 rating meaning it’s shock, dust and water resistant. Offering up to 200w of power, the Legend 2 mod is perfect for even the most wattage hungry vape tanks.
Another notable example of a regulated mod is the Eleaf iStick Power 2. Its standout feature is the huge 5000mAh battery that’s built into the device, meaning you only need to pair it with a tank and your favourite e-liquid and you’re good to go.
Mech Mods are for the experienced vaper with a full understanding of Ohm’s law, amp draw and battery safety. Mech mods work by using a mechanical switch to complete the circuit from your battery to your atomiser. Although they can provide direct power to your vape coils, they offer no battery protection and require regular maintenance to function safely and correctly.

Squonk mods are an advanced style of vaping and can work as an all in one device when paired with a squonk compatible RDA. Also known as a bottom feed mod, these devices house your eliquid inside the main body, typically in a silicone bottle, which can then be squeezed up through the 510 connector to saturate your RDA’s cotton. Apart from this bottle, squonk mods work like any other vaping device, although some are mechanical, many are regulated and offer a full array of wattage settings and battery protection.
