What You Need to Know When Buying Mech Mods

Vaping has become a hobby that has taken the world by storm. Over the past decade, vaping has become more complex through the introduction of mods, both regulated and unregulated. One of these kinds of mods is the mech mod.

Mechanical mods, or mech mods for short, might be quite intimidating at a glance. They’ve been reputed to be cloud-making beasts. But, with the idea that they’re 100% not regulated and that they’re known to explode in your face when used improperly, this could be a turnoff for most vapers. 

Despite all these, mech mods somewhat make the juice taste better. They have no menu to navigate, so they’re much simpler than regulated mods. There’s no power output restriction to the atomizer too. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about their software or firmware. There are plenty more reasons mech mods can be very practical, and sites like Vape and Juice might be able to explain the nuances and sensitivities of mech modding.

With that said, before you buy a mech mod, what do you need to know?

The Good

Aside from what was mentioned above, mech mods can actually be several times more powerful than your everyday regulated mod. Due to the simplicity of their design, mech mods are generally easier to fix. The electronic components of a mech mod are not known to fail so easily. Thus, they’re more reliable. Mech mods are known to be even more durable than regulated mods.

Cloud chasers and sub-ohm vapers go after mech mods solely for the sheer amount of customization of a mech mod. With a mechanical mod, you can choose parts that suit any preferred configuration that will make your vaping experience a memorable one every time. Using the mech mod’s ridiculous amounts of power, this may even further improve how you can stave off your daily stress and anxiety if you experience such.

The Bad

Let’s get this one out of the way: They’re really expensive. Because they contain a lot of parts and you’re looking for the durability of the mod, they tend to be more costly this way. If this wasn’t enough, mech mods tend to drain your batteries more quickly. You’ll be spending more on these. Piling onto the expenses are the bottles of vape juice that you’ll be buying as mech mods burn through these rather generously.

They’re also very hard to maintain. After every other session, and if you will want to keep on using this kind of mod, they require a ton of maintenance and cleaning every time. Burned juice can get super sticky, and disassembling the mod is a chore in itself. Thankfully, any of the various vape starter kits in any local vape shop should have a set of decent components that won’t require too much maintenance.

Practically, they’re also rather large and hefty. You’ll need a special case for the unit because it doesn’t fit in your pocket as it needs to house one battery or more. Mech mods are also unergonomic, so they’re not as easy to hold in your hand.

Do note that these mods are not at all for beginners, and the inexperienced vaper may end up hurting themselves in the process.

The Ugly

Safety, safety, safety. It’s all about safety. There have been numerous times when a mechanical vape mod has burst into flames or exploded in the vaper’s face. This could lead to a life-long disfigurement and cumbersome medical bills right after the accident. The learning curve of using this mod is steep, and the smallest of mistakes could lead to that one session that could change the vaper’s life forever.

Choose Your Mods Wisely  

Mech mods are no walk in the park. They’re not toys, and they’re most certainly not for beginners. Despite offering the simplest and most enjoyable vaping sessions with humongous vapor puffs and enhanced flavor taste, they require a tall order of responsibility and safety. Study them before you buy them.
