What exactly is a vape mod?

Mods are larger, more powerful versions of the “typical” e-cigarette. This can be surprising to people unfamiliar with vaping or those who just started. The term ‘mod’ is short for modified, meaning that it is an ecig that has been modified for better performance. Mods are divided into two different categories: mechanical and regulated. Both appeal to the more advanced vaper who is interested in taking their hobby to the next level.

Mechanical Mods

Mechanical mods (sometimes called unregulated mods) showcase vaping at its simplest. Don’t mistake this for meaning they aren’t powerful and customizable, they just don’t come with all the bells and whistles that regulated mods do. They run strictly on your battery’s voltage and have no screen, power adjustment, short protection or overheating protection. They are activated by physically making contact with the battery. Seasoned vapers who know their way around the vaping world are typically the people who buy mechanical mods.

Regulated Mods

Regulated mods, sometimes called VV or VW mods (VV- Variable Voltage, VW- Variable Wattage), are more akin to a “smart” e-cig. They often come with features like an LCD screen that displays battery levels and adjustable voltage or wattage output and protection from issues like shorts and overheating. Many of the newest and most popular mods on the market are regulated mods because of all the neat features that technology allows manufacturers to add. Such as temperature control, puff counters, and pass-through charging (charging while using). A good example of a regulated mod would be purchasing an Eleaf wholesale product, as they have many of the newest latest and greatest features that many of your customers are looking for.

Why add mods to your next order of wholesale e-cig supplies? For many people, it’s what they buy when they are ready to take their vaping to the next level. It’s important to stock starter kits for customers just starting out, but true vape enthusiasts will rarely go for anything but a mod. They simply give you more control over your vaping experience. The more new and popular mods that you bring in to your vape shop the more your customers will thank you.
