The Different Types of Vape Mods: Ranked Based on Popularity
Date: October 15th, 2018
A breakdown of what is a Vape Mod and what are the most popular Vape Mods to help you make one of the most debated vaping decisions out there.
When you are just getting started in the world of vaping you may be a little confused by all of the terminology especially when it comes to devices. One thing that you will hear a lot of is MOD. No this isn’t a throwback to 60s fashion, and it has nothing to do with putting a different OS on your Android tablet. When vapors use the word MOD they are referring to a type of vaping device that has a very specific type of construction meant to take advantage of “power vaping”. The name means “Method Of Delivery” and there are several types. These devices offer more features, more customization, and more power (they literally use more powerful batteries). Real quick we want to run down the top three versions of a MOD that you are likely to see and explain a bit about them.
The most popular, how the battery works in a variable wattage mod varies from device to device. By using a variable wattage mod your battery is able to use its circuitry to regulate output power by allowing you to adjust the wattage (or voltage) according to your vaping preferences. The users’ ability to adjust the output power allows for control of the heat generated by the coils in the device which can change the flavor of the burn to adjust to the client's tastes. In addition, this adjustment feature helps the user see if they want to take a shorter or longer pull depending on the amount of vapor they want to produce.
You’ll also hear about Variable Voltage devices, which are similar but go by the voltage the battery can output while Variable Wattage may go from 1 to 120W. The reason why Variable Wattage is the most popular type is because it's the most common type people use. It's the functionality of setting the device to a comfort zone. Some devices actually have auto wattage settings such as the VooPoo Drag listed below.
Convenient Safety Feature
The variable wattage mods are known to be the safest and most new vaper friendly because of its internal safety attributes. Some features include a min/ max resistance limit to make sure your device does not fire an atomizer with the coil resistance too high or too low. Another good trait of the mod is its short circuit protection, which prevents the mod from firing if it short circuits.

Squonk vaping is a popular form that allows you to add e-liquid to the atomizer and thus rewet the wick by pressing in on the side of a bottle of liquid that is located inside the box. The unusual name comes from the sound that the bottle makes at times when it is being pressed on. Another major advantage to Squonking for some users is the ability to switch out bottles easily so that you can change flavors as your taste and mood changes through the day.
Less Mess, More Pleasure
Using a Squonk allows you to get a more satisfying and less messy experience while using the device. Most Squonk devices are built to have the bottle changed out when it gets empty, but others allow for in use refilling using a fill port on the side of the device. Squonking is perhaps the most popular form of vaping when using a MOD. You may sometimes see Squonk MODS in conjunction with Sub-Ohm and TC devices.

Temperature Control Devices
Temperature Control or Temp Control devices are primarily set for special types of coils that are built onto the Rebuildable Drip Atomizer (RDA) and used primarily for heating your device to produce just the right flavor for your pallet. Temp Control is all in the chip. ‘DNA’ devices, such as anything from "Lost Vape" are great since you have a wider range of customizability due to the "Escribe" program that matches with it. The heat changes everything in vaping, but doing so will create a more consistent vaping experience, can save your coils and wicks a bit longer, and avoid dry hit (as examples). Much like the difference between a manual and automatic car, TC mod options are there if you prefer it.
