Best Box Mods and Vape Mods UK for 2017
With the advent of e cigarettes a whole new “sport” has now spawned, Sub Ohm vaping or “cloud chasing”, which uses extreme vaping devices ie. Box Mod also known as vape mods. The sub ohm pen styled XEO VOID is also becoming a popular option. Going into 2017 we look at the best vape mods reviews of the top 3 box mods available in the UK. We also offer a great alternative to the square type box mod – see the Xeo Void Review, the best Pen style sub ohm vaporizer in the lower section of this review page.
According to ECigIntelligence the number of vapers rose by 4% to over 2.5 million in 2016 with a shift from pre-filled cartridges to tank systems like vaporizers and vape mods. This in part is due to many e cigarettes simply being poor quality products. If you want a quality electronic cigarette check out our e-cig review section which has a range of quality e cigarette devices that ensure a great vape and will satisfy your nicotine cravings.
Lets take a look at the Void and a summary review of the larger scale top 3 box mods in the UK.
#1 Kanger TOPBOX Mini Review. Rating 88.7%
For a straight forward high quality Box Mod Kanger’s TOPBOX will take some beating. With it’s various flexibility options for those who like building their own and for those that don’t or for those that just want the choice this is an ideal vape mod for both sub ohm and none sub ohm vaping.
The options with the Kanger KBOX mod box will allow the user to get involved with vaping at any level but with a large scale device that may not suit everyone. If you want a larger scale device that blows plumes of vapour though, once you know what you like Kanger have accessories that will suit your vaping style.
#1 Best Pen Style Sub Ohm Vaporizer: The Void! Rating 87%
The V2 XEO Void is a high quality German design sub ohm vaporizer in a pen style with air flow control. For those of you who simply don’t like the size and feel of box mods or don’t want to dial in the amps, volts or temperature setting, just want simple – the XEO Void vaporizer may be just what you are looking for! As expected this is an extremely well made device from XEO, one of Germany’s most popular e cig manufactures, and at around £36.0 is an absolute bargain.
The Void is one of very few pen-style sub ohm vaporizers that come with full TPD2 compliance. The Void has a child-proof function and comes with new Xeo-Vapour no-leak technology. During vaping, components within any vaporizer reach extreme temperatures which can lead to the emission of potentially dangerous chemical gasses. Manufactured with the purest component materials, the Void’s design ensures that during vaping contaminants are minimised, this vape pen complies with all TPD emission tests. Probably the safest vape yet!
The Void comes with a powerful 1500 mAh battery and sub ohm (0.6 Ohm) and standard (1.0 Ohm) coils for different vaping choices. Go cloud chasing or simply relax with your favourite all-day vape e liquid. This is a clever device that offers sub ohm vaping within a proper quality pen style vaporizer. And for huge clouds simply swap out to the sub ohm coil and use some hi VG e liquid (70% VG or higher)!
For most vapers a satisfying vape and “nice-n-easy” is the order of the day.
Have box mods just gone a bit too far with all the variables and coil combinations? If you answer “yes” then the simple design and and quality of the Xeo Void may well be your vaping choice!
#2 Equal: Vapor2 Trinity Vaporizer. Rating 86.8%
The Trinity Vape Mod is by far the simplest box mod in this best box mod line-up. It is also by far the smallest, feels around half the size of the main stream vape mods – a great advantage as it still has all the functionality of the bigger vape mods regarding vapour production and deserves a place here because of its simplicity, flexibility and compact SIZE.
For many vapers, box mods are just too big and can feel awkward – the Trinity doesn’t. With coil choices of 0.8 and 0.5 Ohms for sub ohm mouth to lung vaping or pair the device with the 1.2 Ohm coil for a more relaxed vaping experience – you can even use your own tank! A solid device with an inbuilt battery, a “top fill” 2 ml tank and variable operating power of 5-40W. It’s straightforward and simple design, look, size and feel and functionality will appeal to all but the most extreme vaper – available late 2016.
#2 Innokin Cool Fire IV 70W Plus iSub Apex: Rating 86.8%
This is one of the best vape mods for those wanting exceptional performance combined with ease of use. The iSub Apex Tank turns this device into a pretty extreme vape. It is a straight forward device that hides complex technology within an easy to use user interface that competes exceptionally well against our #1 Kanger Topbox Mini
There are a number of variants out there, the 70W device combined with the iSub Apex tank is the one to go for.
A Word Of Warning
Some UK vaping devices including the best box mods and other sub ohm devices produce huge volumes of vapour, here generally vapers use 3 mg strength for the sub ohm devices. If you vape too high a nicotine strength you will feel sickl!
When vaping with vape mods the vapour, or “exhaust fumes” emitted after vaporization are probably of the order of 10 times or more the volume of a normal cigarette – you can see the significant difference very easily when vaping with these sub ohm vaporizers.
For smokers looking to simply transition away from smoking many of you will find a quality vape pen more convenient than a larger scale device simply because of the “cigarette feel”. In addition e liquid running costs are significantly less expensive with a small scale vape pen.
Nicotine absorption with either a quality box mod or quality small scale vape pen will satisfy cravings equally – with box mods you have more vapour but vape with a much lower concentration of nicotine e liquid – with a small scale vaping device you have less vapour, more cigarette like, but vape with a higher concentration nicotine e liquid.
