When it comes to performance, DNA mods are essentially the benchmark by which ALL other vape mods are judged by.
EVOLV’s DNA chipset is monumentally powerful.
It is also one of the safest chipsets on the planet with hundreds of built-in safety protections and fail-safes.
Beyond this, DNA mods are the #1 options for best in class temperature control vaping. Nothing else comes even remotely close – not even YiHi Mods, though they aren’t too far behind.
DNA mods – notably DNA 200 and DNA 250 ones – are pricey.
They are premium-grade vaping devices designed for the best possible vaping experience.
Like with a performance car or PC, you will pay a premium to access these benefits.
But once you experience a DNA mod, you will 100% know where all that extra cash went.
Why DNA 250 Mods Rock!
- 97% Output Accuracy in Temp. Control & Power Mode
- Escribe Software Lets You Fully Customize Vaping Experience
- Multiple Safety Features & Built-In Fail-Safes
- Stunning, Premium Designs
- Flawless Performance Across The Board
There are many DNA 250 mods out there. Most are very good too.
But for me, there are a select few that really stand out from the crowd.
I’ve based the following mod selections (listed below) on the following things:
- Design | The mods must look great and be made from premium build materials.
- Features & Performance | They must pack in great technology and useful features. No gimmicks, just useful technology
- Value For Money | DNA mods are expensive, but a mod should still offer value for money (even when you’re paying three figures for it)
All of these things are important to me as a vaper, so when selecting options for this feature I choose them with the above criteria in mind.
Best DNA Mods – My #1 Picks For 2018
#1) Lost Vape Triade DNA250C 300W Box Mod
Many people, including myself, think the Lost Vape Triade DNA250C is the best regulated box mod ever created.
The reason for this is threefold:
- The mod is brilliantly designed, it’s perfectly ergonomic;
- EVOLV’s DNA250C chipset is the best vape chip on the planet right now;
- It is perfectly suited for all styles of vaping – from TC to high-power sub ohm tanks and rebuildable atomizers.
It also runs on three 18650 cells and this means battery life is off the charts. Run the Triade DNA250C below 80W and you’re looking at 3 days of battery life from a single charge.
Performance, battery life, power, temperature control. Everything about the Triade DNA250C is exceptional.
#2) Lost Vape Therion DNA166 TC Box Mod
The Lost Vape Therion DNA 166 isn’t as powerful as the Triade; it runs EVOLV’s 166 chipset which outputs at a maximum of 166W.
Thing is: for 99.9% of vapers that is more than enough.
If you’re running RDAs, vape tanks, or RTAs, chances are you’re never going to go that high anyway.
Like the Triade, the design here is near-perfect. I’m talking premium build materials, perfect ergonomics, and beautifully simple software menus.
If you’re after a slightly cheaper version of the Triade, and you don’t need ALL of its power, the Lost Vape Therion DNA 166 comes highly recommended.
#3) asMODus Oni 167W DNA250 TC Box Mod
The asMODus Oni 167W DNA250 is the cheapest option on this list. But DO NOT be put off by its price – this mod is very, very good.
Not only does it come in a variety of eye-catching color options, but it also outputs power up to 167W and is a master when it comes to temperature control vaping.
A traditional box mod through and through, the asMODus Oni 167W DNA250 is an ideal option for anyone that is looking for a sub-$100 DNA mod that packs in plenty of power and design flair.
Such an awesome vape mod!
#4) Lost Vape Paranormal 200W DNA250C Box Mod
You’ve probably noticed that there’s a lot of Lost Vape mods on this list. Well, that’s for good reason. Lost Vape makes some of the best mods on the planet. And the Paranormal is no exception.
Like other mods on this list, the Paranormal uses EVOLV’s DNA166 chipset which means it is limited in potential power-output compared to mods that carry the DNA250C chipset.
Should this bother you? Not in the slightest. I don’t know of any tank that requires more than 120W to function optimally. What you’re getting here is superior craftsmanship, insane power/TC vaping, and robust, reliable performance.
I also adore the way this mod looks.
Trust me, pictures do not do it justice.
#5) Think Vape Finder DNA250C 300W Box Mod
The Think Vape Finder DNA250C runs the latest and greatest EVOLV DNA chipset and it also rocks three 18650 batteries.
That means you get INSANE power performance (up to 300W) and outstanding battery life – anywhere from 3-4 days, depending on usage.
The Think Vape Finder DNA250C is available in a range of color options and, like the rest of the DNA mods on this list, it is built in a very solid manner.
The chassis of the Think Vape Finder DNA250C is made from high-quality zinc alloy and it really pops in red and yellow – yellow being my favorite color scheme for this mod.
If you’re after a super-sturdy DNA250C vape mod that looks very unique, the Think Vape Finder DNA250C is pretty hard to beat. Both for looks and performance.
