Although their name might sound complicated, box mod vapes simply involve lithium-ion batteries housed inside a plastic or metal casing. These batteries connect to external atomizers, usually 510 threaded, which can accommodate e-juices, waxes, or dry herbs, depending on your preferences.
On the outside of the box mod's battery, you will typically find buttons or dials that give you the ability to regulate voltage (the amount of power moving through the vaporizer) or wattage (the amount of energy produced by your vaporizer).
Some vaporizers produce less than 50 watts, while others exceed 300 watts. And because wattage impacts the level of heat generated by your box mod's atomizer, it can affect the vapor, flavor, and throat hit you achieve.
Because box mods give you the ability to combine a seemingly endless number of battery and atomizer combinations, they have grown become a very popular vaping option over the past several years.
First, e-juices propelled box mods into the limelight using different kinds of atomizers. More recently, they have become popular with dry herbs and wax concentrates (with a compatible 510 atomizer attachment, of course). In other words, box mods are not just for e-liquids anymore.
But, which vaporizer box mod is right for you?
Here, you will find a complete list of all box mod vapes, including an introduction for each one, general specifications, potential pros and cons, and high-level customer feedback. These box mods are listed in no particular order, and we will continue adding to this list add new models become available.
Together, this article can help you make a more informed decision when it comes time to make a purchase.
