The Vape Mods We Use & Recommend
If you’re looking to buy a vape mod, you have A LOT of options. Not all vape mods are created equally, however – most are rubbish and will break after a few months usage.
For this reason, you need to ensure you only ever buy high-quality vape mods. In the past 12 months, we have personally tested over 100 vape mods. The mods listed below are the ones that got the highest rating from our reviewers.
The Innokin MVP 5 looks amazing and it vapes just as good. Perfect for all styles of vape tanks – from MTL tanks to RDAs and mesh coil sub-ohm tanks. We love the retro, classic design of this vape mod and its 120W of power under the hood is more than enough for any style of vaping. Innokin smashed it outta the park with this one!
Most vape mods have weak links, things that aren’t quite perfect. It might come with a sub-par vape tank or have difficult controls. Most have their quirks, but the GeekVape AEGIS X Kit is solid all the way through – from its design to how easy it is to use. You also have masses of power and myriad vape settings too for things like temperature control and Bypass Mode.
If you can stomach the price, the SX Mini X Class Box Mod is just about one of the best vape mods money can buy. It’s hella expensive, but with this big price tag comes massive performance, market-leading accuracy, world-class temperature control, and the most premium build materials you’ll ever see on a vape mod. This is the Mercedes S Class of vape mods.
Our Favorite Pod Vapes & AIOs
Pod vapes and AIO vapes are now more popular than traditional vape mods and tanks. Again, you have a lot of options when it comes to pod vapes – too many, actually.
It’s super confusing for new vapers. And you 100% DO NOT want to be using a JUUL.
The following pod vapes and AIO vapes are our current favorite devices; these are the pod vapes the VapeBeat team uses and recommends. They’re all brilliant in their own way.
Fully compatible with Freemax’s AX2 coils, the Freemax Autopod50 is yet another gem from the company that basically invented mesh coils. This pod is perfectly sized, made from zinc-alloy, so it looks and feels great, and it delivers incredible flavor with all-day-long battery life. It’s slightly pricey, but that’s what happens when you have market-leading flavor production…
The original VooPoo Drag vape mod was something of a game-changer. Keen to reinvent the wheel again, VooPoo has returned with the VooPoo Drag X pod vape – and this thing is brilliant. It will run both Nic Salts and High VG vape juice, it has a HUGE battery life, and the coils last for weeks at a time. As pod vapes go, the Drag X is damn-near perfect.
Our Vape Juice Store – Great For Value & Quality!
When it comes to vape juice, there are loads of companies out there – some good, some bad. In 2019, we launched our very own vape juice store. The goal? Work with one of the USA’s best boutique vape juice brands and bring their product to our audience for way below the usual market RRP.
Vape Retailers – Where We Shop!
Finding the right vape retailer or store is often tricky. There are loads of vape stores online, but not all vape stores are created equally. If you value things like value for money, product selection, and free shipping, the following vape retailers are where you want to be shopping!
Free shipping on all orders. A huge selection of vape hardware and vape juice. And the best customer service in the business. DirectVape has long been one of our favorite places to buy vape gear – we get 90% of our review units from these guys. If you’re after the best prices, great shipping, and a huge selection of products, DirectVapor is the place to go!
VaporDNA is one of the oldest and most respected vape retailers in the USA. It sells tens of thousands of products – from RDAs to vape starter kits and CBD.
