2018 Top 10 Vape Mods and Box Mods

Vape mods are the devices of choice for long-term vapers, offering huge improvements in battery life and performance in comparison to eGo-style and (especially) cigalike devices, and opening up levels of customization in your vaping experience you can’t get any other way. But the world of mods is a big one, and with such a fantastic range of mods. Which are the best vape mods and box mods for 2018? Here are the top 10s.

10 – SMOK T-PRIV 220W

SMOK puts out some of the best box mods on the market and the T-Priv version earned enough votes to make it to our top ten. The SMOK T-Priv features a stunning design that incorporates nine colorful LED strips that are fully customizable and synchronized to the stealth firing bar. Along with an intuitive OLED display that offers rich data feedback, intelligent atomizer recognition among a slew of vital safety features, the T-Priv box mod is all that and more. Navigating its advanced menu system, you’ll have options to adjust its maximum power up to 220 watts, while its temperature control suite offers support for Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel heating elements. A hinged battery cover conceals a dual 18650 battery bay and a micro-USB port is equipped for charging and future firmware upgrades.

To deliver the perfect pairing, the SMOK Big Baby Beast tank rests atop sporting a 24.5mm diameter with a large 5mL e-juice capacity. This stainless steel and glass constructed tank offers all the right features to complete the experience, such as a top fill design, dual adjustable airflow control, a delrin ultra-wide drip tip, and the use of the patented baby turbo engines coil structure, which can support up to 100 watts of vaping power. The SMOK T-Priv starter kit is an extraordinary box mod for those that want an aggressive, quality vape experience.

9 – Vapor2 Trinity

Not all of the best vape mods have to be the size of a brick and put out hundreds of watts. The Vapor2 Trinity is a device that proves it. For a newer vaper looking for an awesome mod that doesn’t take up too much space in your pocket or complicate things with superfluous features, the Trinity is an absolute game-changer.

It only puts out a maximum of 40W, which is not as high as other best ecig mods in our list, but when paired with the sub ohm Trinity tank it still produces an impressive amount of vapor. The tank has 0.5 ohm, 0.8 ohm and 1.2 ohm coils, with the two sub ohm options in particular offering excellent performance even on lower power settings. The biggest benefit of the mod is undoubtedly its tiny size – without the tank, it measures just 2 and 1/4 inches tall and less than 1 and 1/2 wide – which gives it tons of potential for use out of the house. The internal battery is great too, with a 1,200 mAh capacity that puts it up in the same field as many sub ohm vape pens.

8 – Lost Vape Therion DNA 166

The latest development in the Therion series is the Lost Vape Therion DNA 166 box mod, ranking as the eighth best vape mod on the market, an Evolv powered chipset that’s capable of pushing 167 watts — ultimately a down throttled DNA 250 chipset, while the Therion’s chassis maintains durability and a luxurious design.

This Escribe compatible mammoth of a device sports beautiful accents, such as its carbon fiber panels, a leather wrapped battery bay and a beautiful 0.91 inch OLED display. The sleek display shares data neatly organized, while a three button control face makes adjustments quick and easy. Though an extensive power offering and a brilliantly designed chassis is great, the Therion DNA 166 box mod gains its prestige impression from its dual 18650 battery capability and its full temperature control suite, and additional settings that can be configured through the Escribe software. If you’re unaware of the Escribe software, it’s an external software that comes as a packaged deal with any Evolv DNA chipset, where you’re able to take advantage of highly advanced features, tuned-in adjustments, and precision customization.

7 – Eleaf iStick Pico 75W

Delivering yet another incredible setup by Jay Boy Designs, the Eleaf iStick Pico 75W has become the latest hit on the vaping market and ranking as the seventh best ecig mod in the VV/VW class. It capitalizes on the Eleaf name, maintains the small footprint the brand has become so known for, yet it’s still capable of providing one of the best performance offerings available.

It features a spring-loaded 510 connection, a micro-USB port for both charging and future firmware upgrades, and three button operation for quick and precise adjustments. As one of the most modern devices of today, the Eleaf iStick Pico mod also comes equipped with a two-line OLED screen that displays battery life, output wattage, temperature, as well as atomizer resistance. Where this little guy really shines is from its power output, being able to deliver up to 75 watts, a low 0.1ohm minimum resistance, and a bypass mode feature. Eleaf has always favored temperature control, so a full temperature control suite allows you to take advantage of Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel, and a three memory TCR mode.

6 – Vaporesso Revenger 220W

Introducing the latest addition to the market comes the new Vaporesso Revenger 220W TC starter kit. This new Vaporesso flagship shares an incredible experience starting from its looks and ending with its performance. The Revenger earns a spot as one of the best e-cig mods for this great beginner vape kit.

The Vaporesso Revenger kit is the combination of the Revenger 220W mod that’s powered by the OMNI Board 2.0 chipset, and the NRG sub-ohm tank. These two mesh together to create a stunning appearance and great performance. The Revenger is designed with an aluminum chassis and in-mould labeling injection coating, while also featuring a four button control and a 0.96 inch OLED display. This e-cig mod has the capability of holding dual 18650 batteries and can be accessed via the magnetized battery bay cover. As you would expect, a micro-USB port comes equipped, and it allows for future firmware upgrades and a 2.5A quick charge system, which is lightning fast compared to most mods currently on the market.

5 – Sigelei Kaos Spectrum 230W TC

Ranking as the fifth best box mod on the market in the VV/VW class is the Kaos Spectrum by Sigelei. Considered by many as the next generation in mod design, this device features not only a brilliantly crafted exterior, but boasts a mean power output, plentiful features, and top notch quality.

The zinc alloy constructed futuristic offering from Sigelei sports an elegant leatherette backing and an LED color light screen bezel that will make you rethink the future of mod designs. This incredible LED bezel offers up to six color options to truly transform its outer appearance, yet can be disabled for a more stealth look. Along with a three button control that consists of an oversized firing button and two adjustment buttons, the Sigelei Kaos Spectrum vape mod also comes equipped with a color display that changes color based on current settings, such as the wattage and temperature input. Aside from additional features such as a full safety suite and stainless steel 510 threading with a spring-loaded gold plated center pin, the Kos Spectrum is also known for its power and temperature control modes. The Kaos offers up to a massive 230 watts of pure power, a 0.1ohm minimum resistance, and a full temperature control suite with support of Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, SS316L, TCR, and even preheat functionality.

4 – SMOK GX350 TC

The SMOK brand has become a leading force within the vaping market, and it continues to show with products like the new SMOK GX350 vape kit. This highly advanced powerhouse of a vaporizer, which received a fair number of votes in our best ecig mod poll, utilizes SMOK’s latest generation chipset, an ultra slim chassis, yet maintains the capability of housing four high amperage 18650 batteries for an incredible vaping experience that you’ll enjoy time after time.

This kit combines the SMOK GX350 mod and the beloved TFV8 Cloud Beast sub-ohm tank. The GX350 mod boasts an ultra slim chassis with a tridimensional polygon design that fits nicely in the palm. It has the capability of holding up to four 18650 batteries and conceals them with a locking bottom battery access door. To match its battery capacity, the SMOK GX350 box mod utilizes SMOK’s latest generation chipset that allows you to take power to new heights as it offers up to 350 watts of pure power. Much like with most modern devices of today, the GX350 also features a full temperature control suite that delivers great range and supports various heating elements.

3 – SMOK Alien 220W TC

Easily one of the most popular vape mod setup on the market since its birth, the SMOK Alien 220W Kit has been the number one choice for many vapers all around the world ever since its release and took a respectable 5.6% of the total vote on our best vaping mods poll for VV/VW devices.

The SMOK Alien TC mod offers an incredible appearance that many have taken a liken to very fast. This beauty houses several features, such as an innovative firming mechanism, a sliding and locking bottom battery accessor door that’s capable of holding two high amperage 18650 batteries, and an extra large OLED screen that features a six line and three column display. A micro-USB port is also equipped for speedy charging and future firmware upgrades.

As for power, enjoy 220 watts and a three setting output mode where you can take advantage of hard, normal and soft settings to truly dial-in on your experience gained. Temperature control is just another feature built into this marvelous device, as it supports Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel with a full temperature range and a low 0.06ohm minimum resistance.

2 – Halo Reactor Mega

Halo’s Reactor Mega is a beast of a mod. While it doesn’t pack quite as much power as many of the other best box mods on this list, it’s in-built 5,000 mAh battery means it can keep you vaping for longer between charges than most of the competition. Halo may be most well-known for their e-liquids, but the Reactor Mega is a reminder that they can make some seriously competitive devices too.

The Reactor Mega can provide a maximum of 80W of power. With other entries on this list of the best vaping mods going beyond 200W, this might not seem like enough, but realistically most vapers don’t go beyond this in day-to-day use. It might not be the perfect mod for a cloud competition, but for everyday vaping the power output combined with the impressive battery life is a winning combination. It also offers TC with nickel (Ni200), titanium and stainless steel coils to help you avoid dry hits.

The Reactor Mega comes in a kit with the Reactor tank, a 5 ml capacity, top-filling sub ohm tank that comes with two 0.15 ohm Ni200 coils and one 0.5 ohm dual vertical coil offering. Combined, they offer great performance and a very dependable setup all-round.

1 – Yihi SX Mini G Class

Taking over 14 percent of the vote in our poll to earn it the title of best box mod within the VV/VW class, the Yihi SX Mini G Class is a 200W box mod with temperature control functionality from 212 to 572 °F (firing at between 5 and 200W), and a compact, ergonomic design.

The appeal of the device is much the same as that of the iPV D2, offering a full-featured vape mod in a slim design put together with comfortable operation in mind. The SX Mini G Class features a hexagon shaped firing button, making it easy to press regardless of how you hold the device, and the adjustment button – located below the display screen – is recessed to help prevent accidental presses. The result is an aesthetically-pleasing mod that is intuitive to operate.

The SX Mini G Class takes two 18650 batteries (sold separately), accessed through a coin-slot screw point on the bottom of the device. It comes with the standard array of safety features for regulated ecig mods, and you can also charge you battery through the included micro-USB connection, with the option of passthrough vaping (so you can use it while charging). The mod will fire any coils down to 0.15 ohms in wattage mode and down to 0.05 ohms in temperature-control mode, working with pretty much any atomizer on the market when combined with the brass, spring-loaded 510 connection. Finally, there are four output modes to give you more options for customizing your vaping experience.
