If you’re in the market for the most powerful vape mods right now, you’re in luck – there are plenty of options.
You have dual-18650 box mods, triple 18650 vape mods, and single battery vape mods, though I wouldn’t recommend these for high power vaping.
The best vape mods we’ve tested this year are outlined in our Best Vape Mods Guide 2018 – these are all excellent options (and feature the options included below).
Powerful Vape Mods – Things To Keep In Mind
If you’re after the most powerful vape mod around right now, you’re going to need excellent battery performance, as high-power vaping is very demanding on a mod’s battery life.
But before we go any further, let’s set up some ground rules.
If you’re after a powerful box mod, you’re going to need it to have the following things:
🔥Very Good Battery Life
🔥An Excellent Vape Chip (This is What Regulates Everything)
🔥A Decent Vape Tank That Can Handle It
🔥And High-Quality Vape Batteries (This is Important)
We’ll look at each of these sections in more detail below.
But for right now, these are VapeBeat’s #1 picks for the most powerful vape mod devices and kits in 2018.
#1) VooPoo Drag 157W (Best Budget Option)
I know what you’re thinking: why didn’t he say the VooPoo DRAG 2? Well, the answer to that is simple: I wanted a cheap vape mod option – one that offers insane performance and packs in a brilliant chip.
VooPoo’s GENE chip is one of the best in the business for power delivery and best of all, you get access to it for a very respectable price – less than $60.
The VooPoo DRAG 157W is easily one of my all-time favorite vape mods. It does it all. From performance to looks to price, everything is 100% on point.
This is why it is one of the best-selling vape mods of all time. It is damn-near perfect in every regard. And it hits like a ton of bricks too.
#2) Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 (Best For Battery Life)
The Reuleaux RX GEN3 rocks three 18650 batteries and can output up to 300W of power. This is the reason it is here: it is ultra-powerful and it has the battery life to back it all up.
Therefore, if you want the most powerful vape mod not much else comes close at this price point.
With this mod, you can chug along at 200W all day and still have battery life left at the end of play. This is impossible to do on a dual-18650 mod.
The inclusion of three 18650 batteries, alongside 300W of power, and great industrial design make this mod of the best options around for those that are after the most powerful vape mod money can buy.
I love almost everything about this mod. From the way it looks to the fact that it can output up to 300W, everything is set up for performance vaping.
And best of all it doesn’t even cost that much!
#3) Lost Vape Triade DNA250C 300W Box Mod (Best For EVERYTHING)
The Lost Vape Triade DNA250C runs on EVOLV’s latest flagship chipset, the DNA 250C.
This is important for two reasons: 1) you get support for 300W of power, and 2) you get market-leading performance across the board.
You see, when it comes to vape chips nothing else comes close to EVOLV’s DNA chip. It is the #1 vape chip on the market for performance, accuracy, features, customization, and efficiency.
The only downside is that DNA mods cost a fair whack. But think of it this way: this would likely be the first and last mod you’d ever need to buy. DNA mods are built to last, unlike cheaper vape mods.
The design of the Lost Vape Triade DNA250C is stunning. The build materials are premium and it also runs three 18650 cells, which makes it ideal for anyone that is looking to do A LOT of high power vaping.
If you want the best, and you can handle the cost, the Lost Vape Triade DNA250C is 100% the one to go for.
Nothing else compares. It is truly a masterclass in engineering prowess.
Vape Mod Chips – Why They Matter
Simple: they regulate the current and the settings. They also manage the power output and ensure everything you’re doing is safe.
Therefore, you want to get a mod with a trusted and well-respected vape chip because, just as with your phone, the chip inside your vape mod is what makes everything work.
Some vape chips are very expensive – chipsets like EVOLV’s DNA chip and the YiHi chipset.
You will pay three figures for mods carrying these but you will get market-leading performance, especially when it comes to temperature control vaping and overall accuracy.
There are, however, cheaper alternatives available. Most notably VooPoo’s GENE chipset and Vaporesso’s OMNI Board 4.0.
These chipsets delivery myriad features and INSANE performance for their price point.
This is why two of the mods running these chips are featured above – they offer incredible performance and value for money.
PROS of High Power Vaping
When you’re vaping at high wattages, there are a few things you’ll notice. On top of this, there are a few things you can do that you cannot with lower wattage devices.
The biggest PROS of using powerful vape mods are as follows:
✔ Ideal For Dual-Coil RDAs That Need Lots of Power
✔ Great For Performance Sub-Ohm Tanks Rated For 150W+
✔ It’s Always Good To Have Latent Power
✔ Bigger Clouds
✔ More Flavor (If Your Tank Is Designed For It)
CONS of High Power Vaping
As with most things in life, there are downsides to high power vaping. The most notable of which are as follows:
✘ It Runs Your Batteries Down Quickly
✘ It Burns Through E Juice Quickly
✘ Reduces The Lifespan of Coils
✘ Dry Hits More Likely (Especially With Vape Tanks)
So, as always, it’s kind of a double-edged sword. You need to be aware of the facts before doing anything, so I just wanted to lay out the basic PROS and CONS for high-power vaping and powerful vape mods in general.
Of course, the best route is often the middle-road. Or, as I like to call it the best of both worlds.
How I Vape (After Years of Experience)
After years on the front line, I’ve learned a thing or two about efficiently running vape mods and box mods.
I know that I don’t really need any more than 150W because I never run my tanks – either RTA, sub-ohm, or RDA – over 100W.
Why’s that? Simple: E Juice is expensive and I like my vape mod to last all day.
These factors are WAY more important to me than arbitrary numbers or wattage chasing.
Powerful vape mods are now common, what’s most important is performance, how that power is delivered, and battery life.
This is what matters most!
You still get tons of flavor and vapor at 80-90W and you’re battery life will last all day, providing you’re running a mod with dual-18650 cells.
And that for me is exactly what I like as a vaper: great cloud production, great battery life, and excellent performance.
