Best Mech Mod? Here’s VapeBeat’s Pick For 2018
A mech-mod is like a stripped down box-mod and they’re VERY popular with a lot of people.
Here are six of the best mech-mods you can buy…
Most are tube mechs, as these are more traditional, though I’ve also included a couple of box mech mods too.
What’s A Mechanical Mod?
Unlike regulated box-mods, which are packed full of microprocessors and electronics, mech-mods are incredibly stripped down – they’re essentially a battery, a wire and a container.
There are now safety features, no TC vaping modes, no OLED displays and no additional buttons or settings.
You just hit the fire button and you’re vaping.
On the majority of mech-mods, there are two screws: the one at the bottom touches the battery negative/ground, while the one at the top touches the battery positive/atomizer.
When you press the fire button the two are connected and the mech-mod delivers an unregulated current, which fires the atomizer and allows you to vape.[amazon box=”B01LYXU3DQ”]
Again, these types of setups DEFINITELY aren’t the best for beginners.
You really need to know what you’re doing here, as the unregulated current can be dangerous in some cases.
The only power source is the battery.
When you fire the device, the power comes directly from the battery — a single battery might deliver 3.7V, while two will give you 7V and so on.
Why Do People Use Mech Mods?
They’re VERY simple and they also allow a greater control over the vaping experience, providing you know what you’re doing, and because they’re so simple in their composition they never fail — unlike more complex box-mods.
The devices themselves, as you’ll see below, are usually very simple and elegant.
They don’t take up a lot of room and are usually constructed from aluminium, brass, copper or, in some instances, wood.
However, mech-mods have ZERO safety features – it’s just you and the full force of the battery – so, again, please make sure you know what you’re doing before you venture down this route.
Mech-Mods with poorly designed coils can break, explode or, in some instances, catch on fire.
Below you’ll find an expanded version of the above table.
This way, you get more detail about the mech mod’s specs, features, and performance.
As we test more mechs, we’ll add them to this A-List.

Best Mech Mods: Karma Kit By GeekVape
If you’re new to the whole mech mod scene, this is the mod you want to start with. Not because it is noob-friendly, but because it is super-safe, can run batteries in both orientations and is designed for safe, unregulated vaping in mind.
It also looks utterly superb as well and, if you buy the kit, which you should, you’re getting yourself one of the best tanks we’ve tested in a good long while.
The tank that ships with the Karma Kit by GeekVape is a RDA and an RDTA in one, meaning you swap between either style of vaping.

Asvape Lucifer 240W Stabilized Wood Vape MOD
If you want something that looks freakin’ sick, the you really do have to check out the Asvape Lucifer 240W Stabilized Wood Vape MOD.
This unregulated mod will kick out power up to 240W, meaning it can handle any style of tank or build.
And, unlike a lot of mech mods, it is not a pen-style device and the upshot of this is that it runs dual-18650 batteries, which means better battery life.
The Asvape Lucifer 240W Stabilized Wood Vape MOD is probably the best looking mech mod on this list. The style, the finish – everything is premium. So, if you’re in the market for something that is as eye-catching as it is powerful, you’ll definitely want to be rocking this monster.
VGOD Pro MECH
The VGOD Pro MECH is one of the best in the business, when it comes to Mech Mods. Not only is the VGOD Pro MECH exceptionally well priced and made in the US, but it is also a stunningly good performer.
You can read our full VGOD Pro MECH review for a break down of what it’s like to live with this mech mod, but suffice to say you will not find a more capable setup for this price point.
Granted, it might not be quite as eye-catching at the Asvape Lucifer, but it will definitely get the job done. And because of its size and gait, it is brilliant for on the go vaping.
I cannot say enough good things about VGOD, so if you’re after reliability and quality, you cannot go wrong with one of these setups.
GeekVape Tsunami Mech Kit
The GeekVape Tsunami Mech Kit is quite a looker. It also comes with the Tsunami RDA, which is a very solid tank in its own right, so when you buy the GeekVape Tsunami Mech Kit you getting quite a bit of bang for you buck.
The styling is seriously on-point as well and, like the VGOD Mech Pro, the GeekVape Tsunami Mech Kit lens itself to on-the-go vaping and stealth vaping, as it is smallish and pretty discreet.
At least, it is until you take a hit. Once you do that you will be basking in a nuclear-bomb-sized cloud of vape. Potent, well-designed, and wonderfully priced, the GeekVape Tsunami Mech Kit is a great place to start if you’re looking for a great, all in one setup to kick off you mech mod journey.
