The new year is almost upon us, so it’s time to pick out some of the top vape mods for 2018. As always, there’s been some great devices recently released onto the market, but there’s still some older devices out there that are standing up to the test of time brilliantly.
If you’re brand new to box mods, choosing the right one for you isn’t always easy. You don’t want to waste money on a device that isn’t designed well or that’s just poor quality. If you’re ready to buy your first box mod in the new year, or if you just want to upgrade to something a little better, here’s best box mods and vape mods in 2018 reviewed by a British vaper.
Smok Alien 220W TC Starter Kit – Best For Vapers On A Budget
Yes, it isn’t brand new, but the Smok Alien still packs a pretty impressive performance, and all at a price that suits your pocket. I’ve never been disappointed by this device, and you won’t be either. It feels really good in your hand, it’s comfortable to take around with you, produces enormous clouds and gives fantastic flavour – what’s not to like?
Designed to fit easily in the palm of your hand, this mod has an easy to use firing button and a convenient temperature control feature for better customization. I really love the solid design of this box mod, and I’ve never had a problem with burning coils or leaking tanks. Even better, this mod has a seriously impressive battery life, and is just perfect if you’re a beginner thanks to its easy to use settings and advanced safety features that keep you completely safe from over discharging, reverse polarity, over amp and over current. It may be a small point, but I also like the fact it comes in a choice of colours.
So, it isn’t all perfect. The Smok Alien has a pretty small tank capacity, and if I’m really clutching at straws, I would moan about it scratching pretty easily, but overall, I definitely recommend this device to anybody who doesn’t want to break the bank but wants a really decent setup.
VaporFi VEX 150 TC Mod – best for long battery life
If, like me, you can’t go anywhere without your vape mod by your side, you’re going to need some seriously long battery life and the VaporFi VEX can deliver in spades. It’s also got an impressively solid build quality, you can really feel the difference in your hand, so you can be pretty sure you’re going to get a lot of use out of this device before it finally gives up the ghost. I loved the way that this device instantly boots up and retains its settings flawlessly. It’s got a lovely display screen too, showing everything you need to know without being oversized. It works in TCR TC, SS and Ni modes and it’s really great with a sub ohm tank – I was blown away by the size of clouds I could produce. The flavour is pretty great too, but it does feel a bit heavier than other devices, which could be a pain when carrying it around all day. Still, it’s still a fantastic choice for anyone, from beginners right up to experienced users.
Lost Vape Therion DNA166 TC Vape Mod – Ideal for Experienced Users
If you’re ready to upgrade your old box mod to something much more luxurious, you’re going to absolutely love the DNA166. It’s got amazing power, zero issues, looks fantastic and feels great in your hand too. This is one good-looking device – I absolutely love its modern look, and it doesn’t compromise on performance either. Apart from outstanding build quality, this device has dual battery modes and it’s a great size to take out and about – discreet and small enough to get into your pocket without a fuss. So, on the downside, there’s no puff counter and if your tank is bigger than 24mm you’re going to have a bit of an overhang, but neither of those are deal breakers. If you’re after big clouds and loads of power, this vape mod is the one for you.
