Best box mod? That’s what everybody wants… and if you’re looking for one that packs a SERIOUS punch, look no further –– these badboys range from 70W right up to 350W!!!
A lot people –– including everyone at VB –– swear by box-mods. Not only do they look great, but they also have superior battery life, produce awesome flavour, and possess the power to reach higher wattage. But what are the best box mods?
Not so long ago, par for the course was anywhere between 20W to 40W. Things have moved on quite a bit of late, however, as vape enthusiasts pursue bigger clouds and more intense flavour hits. And the result is an array for super-powered box-mods, the likes of which we could only dream about a couple of years ago.
These are slightly more advanced setups, however, so if you’re just starting out you might want to check out lower wattage setups, as they cost quite a bit less and still deliver very decent performance. If you’ve been experiment with 30W or 40W setups and are looking to steps things up a bit, well, you might just want to check these badboys out… because they are the best box mods you can buy right now

Highly stylised and ready to WOW, the Fuchai Mod by Sigelei is just one of the latest 200W box-mods to arrive on market. The Fuchai Mod looks freaking AWESOME, with its squared-off design that is constructed entirely from Zinc Alloy.
As you’d expect from Sigelei, the Fuchai features a 3 button configuration and an OLED display, so the mod should feel very sturdy and familiar in your hands. It also features temperature control, so you’ll be able to configure Nickel 200 and Titanium wire for a truly custom vape experience.

Awesome stuff, indeed!
Tesla was a man. A great man. But it is also a car manufacturer and now, fittingly, a maker of awesome box-mods. Like a lot of late-2015’s big releases, the Tesla 200W TC MOD is a 200W box-mod but unlike nearly all 200W devices the Tesla 200W TC MOD will not destroy your bank account, as it costs just $77.95.

The Tesla 200W TC MOD is powered by two 18650 batteries and will last a good couple of days with heavy use. Our advice? Get four batteries and keep two on charge at all times.
Henley FBT UPTOWN
This isn’t TECHNICALLY a box-mod but it is one hell of an AWESOME device and it also has FUCKBIGTOBACCO etched on its side which is, well, pretty darn cool! The Limited Edition Henley FBT Uptown Mod is from 303 stainless steel. The FBT UPTOWN features adjustable copper pins, a magnetic switch, “FBT” engraving on the battery tube and an individual serial number engraved on the bottom button.
“The Mod, itself, is beautiful. It’s designed and machine-crafted in the US in collaboration with JA Mods. But what really inspires us is the symbolic statement it makes,” said Henley, the FBT’s creator. “We simply don’t want to live in a world dominated by corporate monoliths, with unmatched political influence, that sell products that kill millions of people around the world each year. We prefer the culture of openness, innovation, entrepreneurship and community that’s reflected in the fast-growing vaping industry. We don’t want to enslave consumers with our products. We want to empower them to make better and healthier choices and, in general, to live life on their own terms. We value the double bottom line – making money and making a difference.”

A LOT of people have been waiting the entirety of 2015 for two box-mods: Vapor Shark’s DNA200 and the Volcano LAVABOX DNA200. Both are now available and both are bloody excellent setups. The LAVABOX, however, is slightly cheaper than Vapor Shark’s DNA200 device and it also has a raft of innovative features its peer is missing. The device also looks superb, as you can see below:
“The body of the LAVABOX is machined out of 6061 billet aluminum and the mod also is wrapped in a signature rubber grip on the back of the device for added user comfort and device durability,” said Volcano in its official press release. “The DNA 200 chip allows 200watts output power, upgradeable firmware, cell-by-cell monitoring and an integrated 1A balance charger. The device is powered by an internal 900 mAh lithium polymer 3 cell battery.”
The Vapor Shark DNA 200 needs ZERO introductions: it is by FAR and AWAY the MOST anticipated box-mod release of the year. The device itself is constructed from 6031 aluminium, a super lightweight material, which makes it feel extremely svelte in the hand or pocket. After this a black anodization process is layered on top and this is followed by black paint and, finally, a light rubberized coating to complete the chassis. The result is a solid block of awesomeness that’s durable, robust and supremely portable. Oh… and it can crank up to 200W, too!
Vapor Shark DNA200 Specs & Features
- 10WH 3S Lipo Battery
- Powered by Evolv DNA 200

SnowWolf have a pretty damn solid reputation for making some of the best box-mods around. They’re big. They’re clever. And they’re supremely powerful, delivering a consistent and — most importantly — AWESOME vaping experience.
The SnowWolf 200W Asmodus Edition, as the name suggests, is a specialised version of its predecessor that features a brand new GX200 V1.5 chipset, which brings with it a raft of improvements such as the ability to manually set the resistance of atomizers. Fancy.
It also looks bloody excellent as well with its premium finish, excellent build materials and SnowWolf’s uncompromising attention to detail. It don’t come cheap, however, so if you’re looking to get a piece of this action you’re going to have to part with the best part of £100. Just don’t think of it as parting, though. This is an investment — and you will get a HUGE return on your investment once you start chugging on this badboy.

It really doesn’t get any more premium than this set-up. The Hana Box-Mod series is perhaps one of the best-looking (and priciest) set-ups money can buy. Looking more like a deftly engineered Swiss Watch, Hana’s box-mods pull together cutting-edge design, build materials and internal specifications that culminate in an unparalleled vaping experience.
The company produces a variety of box-mods at a range of price points but Vape Beat’s current favourite and go-to unit in and around the home is the Hana Modz Mini DNA 40, which is available for £199.99 and comes in a wide variety of colours — our unit is blue, in case you were wondering.
The Hana Modz Mini DNA 40 is jam-packed with tons of specs and features as well as a bunch of safety systems in order to ensure the best vaping experience possible. If money’s no object to you, and you want a seriously premium-looking set-up, then you really DO need to check out this or one of Hana’s other awesome box-mods.

Stylish. Unique. Immensely powerful. These are just a few of the Sigelei 150W Box Mod’s core attributes. Available in a variety of colours (my personal favourite is red), the Sigelei 150W Box Mod is a complete re-imagining of the company’s 100W unit, boasting improved build materials and a more robust design.
I genuinely ADORE this box mod and for those of you looking for one of the best all-round performers in the business, well, look no further because it really doesn’t get much better than this. Also, there is no delay between firing the device and taking a hit, as is sometimes the case on box-mods. This thing hits instantly, and the buttons are placed perfectly and exhibit excellent travel. Basically, I cannot say enough good things about this unit.
Sigelei 150W Box Mod Features
- Output power: 10-150watt
- Resistance: 0.15-3ohms
- Dual 18650 battery.
- OLED screen.
- High Quality Stainless Steel material.
- Magnetic backplate for easy battery removal.
- 510 thread.
- Size: 96 x 54 x 23mm.
The Smoktech Xpro M80 Plus might only go up to 80W (ONLY!?) but it is one of the best units around for quality vaping. The device itself is perfectly proportioned and, unlike some mods on this list, does not feel bulbous or heavy in the hand.
The chassis is constructed from aluminium allow and zinc, giving the Smoktech Xpro M80 Plus a very premium in-hand feel. At around £60, the Smoktech Xpro M80 Plus is also one of the more affordable box mods on this list, too –– handy if you’re operating under budget constraints.
There’s no need to remove the battery on this unit either, as it ships with a non-removable dual-18650 Li-Polymor battery, which, once fully charged, is good for a good few days of solid vaping. Inside, features include temperature control, assisted by air vents, and short circuit protection. You can also toot on this badboy while its charging too, no need to worry about it blowing your face off.
I currently use a Cloupor Mini and am more than happy with its performance, as you can see in our Cloupor Mini Review. Still, after months of using this device, I am rather intrigued by the possibilities presented by the Cloupor T8 150w Box Mod.
As you can see, it’s powerful, good-looking mod and, like many of the units on list, packed with tons of useful features. The firmware that runs on the Cloupor T8 150w Box Mod is bespoke to the unit, developed especially for this unit alongside the chipset which ensures everything runs smoothly. The resulting vape is essentially next-level compared to the Cloupor Mini, hence my desire to upgrade to this or something similar very soon.
Alongside this you also have a raft of safety features like its temperature control system, self-heat dissipation system and reverse battery protection. Oh, and this unit is also completely upgradable as well.
Cloupor T8 150w Box Mod Features
- Output power: 7W-150W
- Output voltage : 5.6V—14V
- It can be used to 0.2-4.0ohm atomizer
- Colour: Black,blue,red,silver
- Size: 99 x 55 x 25mm
- 15 .magnetic swing door to get to the battery
- 510 Compatible
iPV made a name for itself with the iPV2, a 50W box mod. That device was extremely popular and very capable. But now the company is back with something even better, the iPV3 150 Watt Box Mod. And it really is a gorgeous piece of kit, ram-packed with tons of useful features and settings.
For starters, it features a Yihi SX330 V3S chip that has a wattage range of 7-150 and a voltage range of 1.0 to 7.0. The new Yihi chip can also fire an atomizer with a resistance as low as 0.10ohms, taking care of all you sub-ohm vaping business.
It does all that and then, for good measure, throws in a bunch of safety features like output short circuit protection, reverse battery protection, low resistance warning, low voltage warning, and high input voltage warning to ensure nothing goes array. Two 18650 rechargeable high amp batteries are required to power everything along, meaning you’d be wise to invest in a decent wall charger in order to ensure you’ve always got fully charged, spare cells knocking around.
This is basically the baddest setup on market right now. Not only does it go all the way up to 350W, but it also looks utterly stunning on account of its premium, titanium build materials and perfectly contoured chassis.
It costs a far bit, though –– £599.99 in the UK, and UK Ecig Store is the only place you can pick one up. The Vicious Ant The Variant Ti 350W Box Mod is basically the La Ferrari of the box-mod space and in order to pick one up you’ll have to be A) seriously dedicated to your craft or B) positively loaded.
Vicious Ant The Variant Ti 350W Box Mod Features
- Variable Wattage: 5W-350W.
- Variable Voltage: 2.0-8.4 Volt.
- Grade 5 Titanium structure
- 30 Amp current output
- 0.2ohm minimum Atomizer resistance
- 1.3″ OLED Display
