Advanced Vaping Kits and the Modding Community
E-cigarettes have come along way since they first burst onto the scene a few years ago. Whether you vape for enjoyment, to cut down on your nicotine intake, give up tobcco or simply as a more social alternative to a standard cigarette, you are amongst an ever-growing community of vapers in the UK.
As the community grows, so does the array of modding options available on the market. These mods are aimed at augmenting your e-cig experience, and can provide a variety of benefits and perks. Some are aimed at those who want to reduce their intake of nicotine in a managed way, while others will be suitable for those in search of a more authentic vape hit.
You may also find mods for vapers on the move, such as more muscular storage tanks to hold a larger supply of fluid. Take a look at some of the options below.
Variable Voltage Batteries
A variable voltage battery does precisely what it says on the tin; it is a battery that can be set to a desired voltage. This allows you to adjust your e-cigarette as you see fit, maintaining a low voltage and conserving the life of the battery, and then turning it up a notch when you want a stronger vape.
Users often cite these variable voltage batteries as an effective way to manage your nicotine intake. The strength of the vape hit depends on the voltage setting, which can be reduced incrementally over time, leaving you with a pleasurable vaping experience.
Good quality variable voltage batteries will be sturdy contraptions with a clearly marked voltage scale. Top-end models often require several clicks before they are turned on; this is not a fault, instead it is a handy precaution to prevent the e-cig activating on its own accord.
We understand that you have a life to live, and so you want an e-cig that you can take with you on the move. Of course, your average e-cigarette is an incredibly portable device that fits neatly into any handy bag or pocket, but unfortunately its tank capacity might not be hefty enough to suit your needs.
A standard e-cig tank will probably hold 2ml of fluid, so to avoid the inconvenience of carrying spare vials of fluid with you, you might want to invest in an extra tank with a little bit more carrying capacity.
Extra tanks come in a range of sizes. Some will offer just a little extra capacity – 3 or 4ml for example – while some will provide a whole lot more. Mod packages are now available with impressive 10ml tanks, so you are sure to find one which suits your personal situation.
A word of warning though: the advertised tank capacity refers to the volume of the container only. We do not recommend you fill your tank to the brim as this could cause messy leakage. Remember to leave 0.2 or 0.3ml of breathing space when you refill your tank.
Self-feeding e-cigarettes really are slick pieces of kit. The idea is to allow for quick and easy refills without having to tamper with or dismantle your e-cig.
An e-cigarette with a self-feeding mod can be refilled simply by turning the e-cig upside down for a short time. This allows fluid to feed into the coil heads quickly and with the minimum of fuss.
Beefier self-feeding e-cigs will be fitted with a storage tank of up to 10ml. Larger capacity tanks can keep you going for weeks without a refill, streamlining your vaping experience and ensuring a much happier vaper. As with the variable voltage batteries, it might be wise to invest in a sturdier and more high-quality model, as these will be sufficiently well-built to withstand the knocks and bumps of daily life while remaining in full working order.
Quad Coil E-Cigs
There comes a time when your standard dual coil e-cig just doesn’t quite cut it. For these times, you may need to turn to a souped-up quad coil version.
A quad coil e-cig is really just a dual coil model, but doubled, providing a more powerful vape when you require one. A good quality quad coil e-cig will come fitted with an adjustable airflow valve, a necessary addition to such a powerful device.
As you might expect, these devices tend to be somewhat larger than a run-of-the-mill e-cig. If you’re looking for something a bit more on the svelte side, this might not be for you, however, the tasteful and stylish designs of quad coil devices make them attractive looking e-cigs, even if they are carrying a bit of extra weight.
