Vapes were introduced as a method for cigarette smokers to quit smoking. Vaping is a tobacco-free version of a tobacco cigarette. Rather than producing smoke, the device produces water vapour that is inhaled and exhaled by the user. As the combustion process produces water vapour by heating up the vape juices, they are generally healthier for both the user and people around them.
What is a Vape Mod?
One of the basic components of a vape device is the vape mod. The term “mod” is a shortened form of the word “modification”. Vape Mods are typically bigger and more complicated forms of the typical e-cigarettes. Taking its cue from a regular vape pen, but with enhanced (or modified, hence the “Mod” name) to increase its capabilities, such as longer battery life, a more powerful combustion process, or a higher capacity to contain more e-liquid.
Choosing the Right Vape Mod
Because of the wide selection of vape mods available in the market today at physical stores or online via merchants such as Galleon.my, GearBest, and Lazada Malaysia, choosing a mod that suits you can be a daunting task. The key is to identify what you need in a vape mod, then you will be able to narrow down the options. Here are a few tips to help you in making your decision:
Set A Budget
Similar to other purchases, you should know how much you can set aside to purchase a vape mod. Before purchasing a vape mod, you will need to determine which features are must-haves and which you can live without as that affects the price of the vape mods. Naturally, the less expensive versions equate to limited capabilities and functions. Thankfully, most mods today are still capable of catering to most needs, regardless of price point. For new vapers, an affordable vape mod should be sufficient to fulfill their needs.
Determine Your Battery Usage and Wattage Requirements
Once you have considered your budget, the next step will be identifying the battery usage and wattage requirements which will help to reduce your remaining options. For example, if you vape infrequently, there is not much reason for you to choose a replaceable battery mod over one that has built-in rechargeable batteries. Similarly, there is no point paying for 100 watts when only 20 watts is more than enough.
Identifying the Functions
Thirdly, you should know what to expect for the amount you are paying. Most vape mods available in the Filipino market these days offer basic amenities such as a backlit display, onboard charging via micro USB, and the ability to function in variable voltage or wattage mode. There are devices that do not offer some of these features but generally, any mod worth owning should either be able to provide these features or compensate for their absence by offering other features.
