Every year, vape technology gets better and better. There are new mods, coils, and tanks produced, and keeping up with all of them can be tough, let alone knowing which ones are worth the investment.
The web is a great resource, and the greatest resource is those who vape themselves. There are a number of places you can vote for the best mods of 2018, and the results of those surveys will tell you a lot about what the best and brightest companies have come out with for this model year.
Here are seven of the best mods of 2018 as voted on by nearly 20,000 vape enthusiasts nationwide.
This mod sticks with the small format that Eleaf has been known for, but its compact size also delivers incredible power for the money. The simple combination of the iStick Pico 75W TC mod and the Melo III Mini sub-ohm tank makes this particular device notably desirable. The battery life is decent for a small-ish unit, and there is a micro-USB port for quick recharges. It even has a two-line OLED screen that displays battery life, output wattage, temperature, as well as atomizer resistance. Capable of delivering 75 watts of power at 0.1-ohm resistance, this made the list easily.
This is a new entry to the market and easily one of the best beginner vape kits out there. This mod combines the Revenger 220W mod powered by the OMNI Board 2.0 chipset and the NRG sub-ohm tank for some incredible performance and ease of use. A micro-USB port allows for future firmware upgrades and is equipped with a 2.5A quick charge system, which is lightning fast compared to most mods currently on the market. A unique bypass mode, one of six, allows you to charge and vape at the same time, a really great feature. For beginners, this is a go-to vape system.
The Kaos Spectrum features not only a brilliantly crafted exterior, but boasts a mean power output, plentiful features, and top quality. Considered by many to be the vape design of the future, the LED color light bezel lets you change the appearance quickly for a unique look or shut off the feature entirely for a more stealth mode. The three-button control features an oversized firing button, along with two adjustment buttons, making it very intuitive to use.
The SMOK brand has become a leading force in the vaping market, the new SMOK GX350 vape kit only enhances that reputation. This highly advanced vaporizer utilizes SMOK’s latest generation chipset and an ultra-slim chassis. The combination of the SMOK GX350 mod and the beloved TFV8 Cloud Beast sub-ohm tank delivers incredible performance, and the polygon design fits in any hand nicely. The TFV8 tank is a top performer and one of the most solid ones on the market. This is a great mod no matter what your vaping level.
With a second device in the top seven, this legendary, yet relevant kit has been a favorite of vapers worldwide since its release. The mod combines the SMOK Alien box mod with the outstanding TFV8 Baby Beast sub-ohm tank which together delivers a seamless design and a performance offering that’s pretty tough to beat. With 220 watts of power and a three-setting output mode, taking advantage of hard, normal and soft settings tallow you o truly dial-in on your experience. Even though it is a smaller tank, it still has a 3mL e-liquid capacity, SMOK has a running winner with this great mod.
The Reactor Mega can provide a maximum of 80W of power. While others on our list go beyond 200W, this might not seem like enough, but most vapers don’t go beyond this wattage in day-to-day use. Not the ideal mod for a cloud competition, the power output combined with the impressive battery life can keep you vaping for longer between charges than most of the competition. The Reactor Mega comes in a kit with everything you need to get started vaping and is a great choice for your everyday vaping from a company better known for their e-liquids.
The Yihi SX Mini G Class is a 200W box mod with temperature control functionality from 212 to 572 °F and a compact, ergonomic design. The SX Mini G Class features a hexagon shaped firing button, making it easy to find and the adjustment button which is located below the display is recessed to help prevent accidental presses. This makes this mod aesthetically-pleasing and intuitive to operate. This mod is the most expensive one on the list, but if you want the best mod of 2018, it is worth the extra change to pick one up.
No matter what your vaping level or what kind of performance you are looking for, there is a vape on this list for you. Don’t take our word for it. These are the best according to those who are actually using them on a daily basis.
