What Are Vape Mods?

Vapor Origin’s Top Rated Vape Mods
We have prepared a list of the very best top rated vape mods that are currently offered across the web and on Vapor Origin. The mods that we have selected for this list are based on real-word use and everyday vaping. These top mods come as either the vape mod alone or as a starter kit that includes a vape tank and the mod.
Some of the mods on this list have built-in batteries while other don’t. Since we chose the best of the best, you won’t find a lot of cons with these vape mods as they are really good at what they do. Some of these vape mods were our top picks for the best vape mods of 2018 and they continue to be strong as some of the best vape mods of 2019.
All of the vape mods on this list are under $100, so if you’re looking for the best vape mod under $100 you’ve come to the right place. The mods on this list are great for beginners as well as more advanced vapers.
SMOK Vape Mods
SMOK is a vape brand known for producing great performing vape mods at affordable prices. SMOK has a reputation in the e-cigarette industry for pushing the vaping industry forward by equipping their mods and vape tanks with the newest vaping technology. Their vape mods and vape mod starter kits feature the latest chipsets allowing their mods to push out more power to give you the best vaping experience possible.
SMOK Species is a great vape mod and represents SMOKs dedication of pushing the envelope of what’s possible from your vape mod. The species features a bright OLED Touch Display that gives you information such as your coil’s resistance, battery levels, and power levels.
The Species is all about performance, as soon as you push the fire button, the mod will produce some of the best vapor you’ve ever tasted. If you opt for the starter kit, you will get the TFV8 Baby V2 Vape Tank, which is a must have if you’re purchasing this vape mod. The Baby V2 sub ohm vape tank that comes with the starter kit is awesome and completes the Species vaping experience.
The Species vape mod is great for new vapers as well as more veteran vapers because you can adjust the power you want from your mod, so whether you’re someone who wants vapor clouds or just a regular vape, you’ll be able to achieve that with the Species vape mod. Overall, the Species vape starter kit is one of the best mod and tank combos currently on the market!
SMOK Nord isn’t exactly a vape box mod, it’s more of a vape pod system but we had to include it in this list because it performs very similarly to a box mod. Although the Nord doesn’t allow you to dial in your power settings, it comes with mesh sub ohm coils that make this little pod system perform better than some of the box mods that we have tested.
The Nord will allow you to use sub ohm coils or regular coils if you want an MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping experience. The battery life on the Nord is perfect even though it’s super compact and super portable. We highly recommend this vape system for anyone who wants a compact and discrete vape that they can take anywhere. Overall, the SMOK Nord is a very cool vape pod system that should be in every vapers’ arsenal of vaporizers. We highly recommend it for it’s compact design and excellent vape performance.
SMOK Mag is a great mod that delivers the exceptional performance that we have all come to expect and love from SMOK. This vape mod is one of the most ergonomic vape mods on the market.
The Mag allows vapers to vape at 225 Watts. Although we don’t know who vapes at such a high wattage, but it’s there for those who want it. It has an OLED screen that displays battery level, power level, and coil resistance very neatly.
If you opt for the mag vape starter kit, you’ll get the TFV12 Prince sub ohm tank which is another great performer in terms of cloud production and flavor reproduction.
SMOK I Priv is probably the only vape mod on the market that features voice control. It’s one of SMOKs most innovative mods and it has the performance to back it up. The I-Priv is capable of firing at up to 230 Watts of power.
The I Priv vape mod can be controlled by voice commands, you can tell the mod to raise or lower you wattage, you can tell it to lock itself, or you can tell it to set a specific wattage and it will dial it in for you. It has performance similar to most SMOK mods but with the addition of voice control.
If you need voice control from your vape mod, this is the one to get. If you want the mod itself you can purchase it alone, but the starter kit comes with the TFV12 sub ohm vape tank that we love and consider to be one of the best performing vape tanks on the market.
SMOK Vape Pen 22 is simpler than the SMOK mods we mentioned above. If you want a vape mod that you can just charge, fill up with vape juice, and be on your way, the Vape Pen 22 vape mod kit is the way to go. The downside to this mod is that you don’t get to choose your settings, you’re pretty much left with a mod that fires the tank at a set wattage.
We personally found the vape from the Vape Pen 22 mod kit to be just right, but you may like something that allows you to set the power yourself. The great thing about this mod kit is that it comes with a built-in battery so you won’t need to purchase one separately and it also comes with a vape tank. All you need to do is purchase some vape juice and you’re ready to start vaping.
Vaporesso Vape Mods
Vaporesso like SMOK produces some great vape mods. Their vape mods are powerful but also look good. If we had to choose between SMOK mods and Vaporesso mods, we’d say that they perform similarly but Vaporesso mods are edgier and overall built better. Whether you purchase an e-cig mod from SMOK or Vaporesso you’ll probably be happy as both brands have mods that perform and look great.
Vaporesso Revenger mod is a 220 Watts beast that performs as good as it looks. The Revenger comes with a color OLED display that gives you info such as the battery level, coils resistance, and power level. The display looks great whether you’re indoors or outdoors. If you opt for the Revenger Kit, you’ll also get the NRG sub ohm that’s a great performer in its class. We have personally used the Revenger & NRG vape tank combo and are impressed by how much vapor and flavor you get from this setup. If you’re someone who likes tinkering with settings this mod is for you as it will allow you to adjust the amount of vapor you get with ease.
Vaporesso Polar mod like the Revenger mod is able of pushing out a whopping 220 Watts to your atomizer. The Polar is more refined and in our opinion looks better than the Revenger. The great thing about the Polar mod kit is that you won’t be refilling with vape juice as much because the tank has a 6 milliliters e-juice capacity and adjustable airflow control. The OLED display on this mod is simply gorgeous displaying pertinent information such as the battery level, power level, and coil resistance. We high recommend this mod kit as it comes with the Cascade Baby SE sub ohm tank which is known for its legendary performance in terms of vapor and flavor production.
Vaporesso Armour is a great vape mod that is sleek and compact. Unlike its bigger brother the Polar, the Armour takes 1x 18650 battery and this limits its maximum power to a 100 Watts. Although most of us vape way below this power level we had to let you know it only goes up to a 100 Watts. This shouldn’t discourage you as the mod performs great and the included sub ohm tank vapes extremely well. Our customers love the Armour and we know why!
Vaporesso Drizzle Starter Kit is a great vape mod and vape tank setup. The drizzle unlike the mods listed above does not need too much customization. Just charge the vape pen mod and fill the included tank with your favorite e-juice and you’ll be ready to go. This mods beauty is in its simplicity and ease of use. There isn’t much you need to setup the device and start vaping.
VOOPOO Vape Mods
VOOPOO is relatively new company to the vaping scene but they have made some pretty great contributions in terms of producing some good products. Their product line is a bit small but the vape mods they’ve produced perform great and we will share some of our top picks with you down below.
VOOPOO Drag 2 vape mod is a great vape mod that’s capable of firing up to 177 Watts. The Drag 2 has a great and easy settings menu to navigate and performs wonderfully. The vape mod fires almost instantaneously sending power to your atomizer. If you opt for the Drag 2 tank you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the T2 sub ohm tanks that comes with the starter kit. You will need to purchase 2x 18650 batteries to use the mod.
VOOPOO Drag Mini is another great vape mod from VOOPOO and if you didn’t like the idea that you’ll have to purchase batteries to power the mod, you’ll be happy to know that the Drag mini comes with a built-in battery. The Drag mini listed here is not the kit, so you’ll only get the Drag mini on its own. In terms of performance, we love the Drag mini, the fire button is super clicky and the mod is very responsive. Not to mention the Drag mini, like the Drag 2 has a beautiful resin exterior that will undoubtedly turn some heads.
Innokin Vape Mods
Innokin has been in the vaping game for many years so they know a thing or two about making some great vape mods. We chose three setups from Innokin that we believe are the best vape mods for their vast lineup of vape gear. Without further ado here they are:
Innokin Proton vape mod is arguably the best vape mod that Innokin has ever made. It looks nice and it vapes just as well too. The Proton has one of the best user interfaces that we have seen on a vape mod with an OLED display. But not only is the display great, the mod performs great too especially with the included Scion 2 sub ohm tank. The Proton mod is compact and looks great with the Scion 2 on top. The flavor on the Scion 2 sub ohm vape tank is phenomenal and some of the best that we have ever tasted. We highly recommend the proton 2 starter kit.
Innokin Cool Fire 4 is for those who want a smooth and calm vaping experience, you won’t find 200 Watts here, you’ll find a great performing 40 Watt device that delivers great vapor production and great flavor from the included legendary iSub sub ohm tank. Innokin isn’t about numbers, it’s about the vaping experience and they have nailed it with the Cool Fire 4 Kit. The good thing about this vape mod is that it comes with a long-lasting 3300 mAh battery that’s enough for a fully days vape (your mileage may vary). This vape mod and tank combo is great for beginners and will make sure that you don’t go back to smoking cigarettes. We understand that not everyone is an vaping expert and that some may be looking for a simple kit that has excellent performance, so if you’re one of those people, the Innokin Cool Fire 4 is the right vape kit for you.
Innokin Riptide Crios is a great option for those looking for a pen style vape mod. The Riptide Crios is a fixed power output vape and what this basically means is that the mod determines the best wattage for the tank and hits it with that power. Although you don’t get to choose the wattage you’re vaping at, customers are satisfied with the built-in settings. Also, the vape mod comes with a built-in 3000 mAh battery so need to purchase additional batteries for this setup. The Riptide Crios vape kit comes with the Crios sub ohm tank, so all you need to get started vaping is some of your favorite e-juice and you’re ready to go.
Aspire Vape Mods
Aspire is an e-cigarette brand that has been dedicated to providing vapers with the highest quality vaping products since 2013. Aspire has released many great vape mods and vape tanks and continues to innovate in the field of e-cigarettes. We have a few Aspire vapor products that we would like to share with you.
Aspire Dynamo vape mod is one of Aspire’s latest finely-crafted vape mods. The Aspire Dynamo like the Innokin Proton has an awesome OLED display that neatly displays your e-cigarettes information. Aspire paired the Dynamo with the Nepho sub ohm tank which has tripple adjustable airflow control allowing you to adjust the mixture of vapor and air that you get. Also, the Dynamo mod has a temperature control suite, allowing vapers to really fine tune their vaping experience to their heart’s desire. Overall, the starter kit is great and built well, we highly recommend it to anyone who cares about the quality of their vaping device.
Aspire K2 is a great vape mod starter kit that is for vapers who want a decent vaping experience without producing tons of vapor clouds, don’t get us wrong it produces plenty of vapor but not as much as the Aspire Dynamo. The Aspire K2 comes with a small vape tank that’s great for use with nicotine salts and regular vape juice. The vape mod comes with a built-in 800 mAh battery, making it very compact and great to be taken in public for discrete vaping. Not all vapers like blowing clouds of vaper while they’re out in the public and that’s who this vape pen mod caters to. If that sounds like you, you’ll be very happy with this kit.
Aspire Pockex AIO vape mod starter kit is great for someone who wants an easy to use vape. The Pockex comes with a 1500 mAh battery and sub ohm tank that produces great tasting vapor. The Pockex fires the included coils between 18 to 23 Watts. Don’t expect to be blowing the biggest clouds in town, but expect great vapor and flavor production. All you need to get started with this compact vape is to charge the vape mod, add some of your favorite vape juice and begin vaping. Aspire has really made it that simple to enjoy a vape.
Joyetech Vape Mods
Joyetech is probably one of the oldest if not the oldest vaping company in existence. Joyetech produces some great vaping products and is well-respected in the vaping community. Joyetech produces some great vape mods, vape tanks, vape pens, and vaping accessories. We will now share with you some of the best Joyetech products that we currently carry.
Joyetech Cuboid Pro is a vape mod that does it all and does it good. The Cuboid is one of the most advanced vape mods that we currently carry and it has the price tag to reflect that. The Cuboid has a 2.5 inch touch based display that makes dialing in your vape settings a breeze. The Cuboid starter kits comes with the vape mod, vape tank, and vape coils. However, you will need to purchase 2x 18650 separately to power this beast of a vaporizer. The Cuboid comes with the Aries sub ohm tank that produces amazing vapor and flavor. If you want to blow vapor clouds and enjoy the flavors of your vape juice then this mod is for you. Overall, the Joyetech Cuboid is one of the most unique and coolest vape mods currently on sale.
OBS Vape Mods
OBS is a fairly new vaping company but it produces some great products. Since it’s new it doesn’t have many vape products, but it has produced some excellent ones that we want to share with you below.
OBS Cube is a self-explanatory vape mod starter kit. The kit comes with the OBS cube itself, the Cube Tank, and a built-in 3000 mAh battery. The kit is great, compact, and sleek. It’s a personal favorite of ours here at Vapor Origin. The Cube only goes up to 80 Watts but that’s more than enough to power the Cube sub ohm tank that comes with the kit. We are sure that anyone looking for a sub ohm setup will be happy with the OBS Cube Kit. What’s even better than the performance is the affordability of this cheap vape kit. You get the OBS Cube vape mod, Cube sub ohm vape tank, built-in battery, and two replacement coils for the low price of $45. It’s a steal for that price and the performance is epic. We highly recommend this kit to anyone looking for a great, cheap sub ohm setup.
Vape Mod Buying Tips
For those of you that need a refresher course, let’s talk about a few things that you should consider when buying your vape mod. The most important thing to look at it how much power does the mod deliver. This is important if you’re planning to use a sub ohm coil with your mod. Most mods however have power levels of 80 Watts + so you’ll be okay in that department.
Next, you should look at the minimum resistance the mod fires and this is really important if you want to use ultra-low resistance coils. The last and final thing is looking to see if the mod supports temperature control, this is important if you want TC from your mod. We personally just use all of our vapes at normal power settings and find that to be the easiest way to vape.
Best Squonk Box Mod
The best Squonk mod award goes to the Dovpo & TVC Topside. The Topside is the first squonk mod ever to be designed by Brian from TVC. The Topside is a single 18650 squonk box mod that can fire at up to 90 Watts. The beauty of the Topside is the innovative top-filling mechanism, which allows vapers to refill the squonk bottle without ever having to remove it from the mod. The Topside is compatible and fits all 25mm RDAs, RTAs, and vape tanks without overhanging the mod. The Topside comes in 10 unique colorways.
We personally found the Dovpto Topside and the Wotofo Profile Mesh RDA to be the best squonk setup ever made. The Profile RDA is smooth and the mesh coils provide some of the best tasting flavor you’ve ever had. The flavor blows the flavor of any sub ohm tank currently on the market out of the water. The Profile also works seamlessly with the Dovpo Topside Squonker.
If you are wondering what is a squonk mod? A squonk mod is basically a vape mod with a built-in e-juice bottle that feeds vape juice directly to your RDA through the 510 connection, eliminating the need to have to drip vape juice through the mouthpiece. This makes it easier to vape without having to stop and drip e-juice into your RDA every five minutes. Instead you simple squeeze the squonk bottle and wait for e-juice to travel from the bottle, up the 510 connection, and finally into your RDA.
Vapor Origin offers the Dovpo topside which is a regulated squonk mod with a chipset that allows the vaper to pick the wattage or the voltage they wish to vape at. It also comes with a slew of safety features that minimize any mishaps with the battery. Regulated squonk vape mods are considered to be the safest option when squonking and the only way to vape if you’re into temperature control vaping.
Best Vape Mod Battery Life
Don’t you just hate it when you’re about to go out and your vape mod dies on you? We have prepared a list of the mods with the best battery life. The mods are listed from Top performing mods to least performing mods. Note that the batteries you use may affect the battery life that you get from your mod. These tests were conducted using the Samsung 25R 18650 batteries.
- SMOK Nord (Built-in Battery is Great)
Now that we have covered the best box mods, time to cover the best pod mods.
Best Pod Mods
You might be asking yourself “what’s a pod mod?” A pod mod is small portable electronic cigarette pod that attaches to a vape mod battery. The pods are usually empty so you can fill them with your own vape juice and the pod mod battery delivers power to the pod’s atomizer to vaporize the e-juice. Pods mods are usually draw activated however some pod systems can be activated by pressing a fire button. Pod mods are very popular because they are compact, portable, and really easy to use. You don’t have many settings to dial in and re-filling your pod system is easy and can be done quickly.
This section will explore the best vape pod mods that are currently offered on Vapor Origin. We have a complete section dedicated to pod mods, so take your pick. Here are a few of our top picks.
#1 SMOK Nord Pod Mod Starter Kit
The SMOK Nord is hands down our favorite pod system of 2019. The kit that we have for sale has everything you need to get started vaping, all you have to do is get yourself some freebase vape juice or some nicotine salts and you’re ready to go. The Nord looks great and has the performance to match its looks.
The Nord comes with an 1100mAh built-in rechargeable battery that may be enough for many vapers, however we found ourselves recharging it towards the end of the day. Good news is that you can charge it anywhere you have a USB connection. The Nord fires the included coils at 10W to 15W, which is pretty good for a pod system of its size.
The Nord also features a 3ml vape juice capacity so you can vape away without having to constantly worry about refilling your pod. The pods are super easy to fill without getting vape juice all over the place. This pod mod vape is highly recommended for new vapers as it is very easy to use and the performance is better than many larger vape setups.
- Fires Quickly
- Looks sleek and cool
- Very easy to use make it great for new vapers
- Long-lasting battery
- Contains a slew of safety features
- Great vapor production
- Flavor is excellent with mesh coils
- Only one fill hole for the pod (not a big deal)
- Battery may not be enough for chain vapers
#2 Suorin Drop Pod Mod Vape Starter Kit
The Suorin Drop is a very popular pod mod vape kit and for a great reason. It’s super slick and super compact, making it great for people who are always on the go. The Suorin Drop is great for someone who likes using nicotine salts. It has constricted airflow which makes it great for MTL (Mouth to Lung) vapers. It’s a really good pod system for someone who wants to quit cigarettes.
The Drop feels premium, the finishing touches and the exterior feel really good to the touch. Some colors have an automotive-like finish which makes using it very comfortable.
We found the battery on the Drop to be fairly good. We personally were able to get a full days vaping out of it, however we were using it along with other vapes so that might be the reason.
Drop pods hold 2ml of nicotine salts which is a huge amount considering the amount of nicotine that is in salt nicotine e-juices. Pods easily lasted us more than a day’s worth of vaping.
Overall, if you’re looking for a JUUL replacement pod system, the Suroin Drop is for you. It’s much more comfortable to use than a JUUL vape and it allows you to use your own nicotine salts. All you need to get started is the pod mod system kit and some nicotine salts and you’re off to the races.
- Looks are unique
- Perfect for use with nicotine salts
- Refillable pods
- Great for MTL (Mouth to Lung) vaping
- Pass through charging
- Not good for use with freebase vape juice
- No very durable (lasted us about 5 months but it’s cheap to replace)
#3 Suorin Air Pod Mod Vape Starter Kit
The Suorin Air is very similar to the Drop but with a different form factor. The Drop is shaped well like a water drop while the Air is shaped like a credit card. Both are very easy to use and offer a great vaping experience.
The air is another open pod system, meaning that you get to refill the pods yourself. The kit does not come with nicotine salt allowing you to purchase your favorite nicotine salt and fill it into the pod.
The pods have a 2ml capacity which is huge for a pod system, you should be able to get a full days worth of vaping from a fully filled pod. You might even have to recharge the pod mod before your nicotine salt runs out.
Overall, this is a great pod system for someone who wants a great alternative to smoking cigarettes because it has tight airflow so you would use it similar to how you would smoke a tobacco cigarette.
Recharging the Suorin Air is a breeze, just use the included USB cable by plugging it in to the nearest USB port and you’re set.
- Sleek & Slim design
- Large nicotine salt capacity (2ml)
- Simple On/Off switch
- Great vapor production
- Great for MTL vaping
- Pass through capability
- Not the most durable pod system we’ve used but it’s a great pod system
#4 SMOK Fit Pod Mod Vape Starter Kit
SMOK is known for designing great looking and great functioning pod mod vape kits and the SMOK Fit is no exception. It’s very affordable and provides an excellent vaping experience thanks to the awesome pods that SMOK has design for the Fit. The Fit was made for someone who’s always on the go and wants a sleek, compact vaporizer they can take anywhere.
The Fit has a built-in rechargeable 250mAh battery that provides enough power to keep you vaping while you’re on the go. The Fit has an LED indicator that tells you the Fit’s battery life so you’re aware when you need to charge your Fit. Charging the Fit is easy, just plug the included USB cable into any USB port and you’re set.
The Fit can be used with freebase vape juice, but it shines when used with nicotine salts. The 2ml cartridge should hold enough e-juice to last many vapers an entire day (your mileage may vary).
The great thing about the Fit is that you can carry an extra pod with a different flavor, this is great for someone who gets bored of vaping the same flavor throughout the day. Overall, we highly recommend the fit due to its great construction and great vapor and flavor production.
- Sleek Design
- Super portable
- Refillable pods
- Great vapor production
- Great flavor
- Pass through capability
- 250mAh battery is great but if you vape frequently you’ll have to plug it in at some point during the day
#5 SMOK Novo Pod Mod Vape Starter Kit
The SMOK Novo is an inexpensive pod system from SMOK. The Novo pod mod kit has all of the equipment that you need to start vaping, just grab yourself some nicotine salt or freebase vape juice and you’re good to go.
The Novo is super portable thanks to its sleek and compact design. The mod has a USB charging port allowing you to charge the device anywhere you have access to a USB port.
The Novo has a sophisticated design and has the performance to back up the design. It comes in a slew of prism color schemes so there’s a color for every vaper. We personally found the black Novo to be our favorite, but you may like a different color.
The 2ml pods allow you to fill the Novo with a salt nic or vape juice of your choice, but we have to mention that it works best with nicotine salts. The Novo comes with a built-in 450mAh battery that can be recharged while you’re on-the-go.
The Novo unlike the SMOK Nord comes with draw activated firing, meaning you won’t have to push any buttons to vape, you simply take a hit and the device fires on its own. Even though the Novo is a cheap vape mod pod system, it performs great and doesn’t make any sacrifices in terms of vapor production.
- Portable design
- Refillable pods
- Great vapor production
- Great flavor
- Pass through capability
- We don’t really have any cons with this device
