A box mod is just an e cig shaped like a rectangle; smaller in length and width than a handheld communication device, but deeper to allow for atomizer threading and a battery. In spite of this depth, box mods are slim and portable; compact and light. Most of them are made from aluminum alloy so they are clean, durable, and not too heavy to cart around.
What is the best variable wattage box mod on the market?
There is no single device you should turn to but you should know that some require the expertise of an advanced vaper and others are easy for even new vapers to use. Certain ones are capable of feats you’re uninterested in unless you plan on entering cloud competitions.
Box Mod Brands and Models
The company best known for its box mods is Innokin, maker of the iTaste MVP 2.0 which is the least expensive of reliable devices on the market. They also make VTR and SVD. Dovpo introduced two box mods, one of which is excellent for people who have broken other such items while carrying them to the beach or on rock climbing adventures. The IPV mod is affordable and agile. Here are some box mod profiles.
Innokin iTaste MVP 2.0
For around $50 to $80, you can own an entire kit of bits: the MVP 2.0 with its built-in battery and an iClear clearomizer. You might see the built-in battery as a negative feature, but there is a good chance a new MVP or other interesting device will come on the market before your 2600-mAh battery is charged for the last time. Wattage (by increments of 0.5 watts) goes up to 11 and voltage to 5 by 0.1 volts. There is a puff counter and voltage memory setting to recall the last voltage you selected before turning the device off. The MVP has pass-through capability and lots of battery protection features.
If you are an active vaper, this one is for you. It’s also an excellent emergency device for blackouts so long as you keep it charged.
If that happens, it works as a flashlight and will charge other devices (like cell phones). Made from silicone rubber and a zinc alloy, the ELVT mod will withstand shock, being dropped, dust, and water. The well-lit screen shows your voltage and wattage setting.
IPV by Green Leaf
For about $90, enjoy a popular box mod which provides battery protection against overcharge, battery reversal, and short-circuiting, and operates to a maximum wattage of 50. It can also be used for sub-ohm vaping — as low as 0.2 ohms — which a lot of experienced vapers find so crucial if they are to truly enjoy their experience.
Like the ELVT, this does not come with a battery built in: you buy the 18650 battery (very high power) separately and, when it’s completely charged up, you can vape for a weekend without looking at the USB cable. A 510 center pin adjusts so you can add virtually any clearomizer you prefer. View voltage and wattage on the OLED screen.
VaporFi Vox 50
VaporFi makes e cigs, including the Rocket, Rebel, and Pulse, but they also recently introduced their version of a 50 watt box mod: the Vox. Since “vox” means “voice,” I wonder: does VaporFi consider itself the “voice” of vaping in a sense? They certainly have the selection to contend for this position, although at $200, the kit (with a battery, charger, and the mod) is not as affordable as those above.
Still, this is probably the sleekest, most attractive device of its kind. All the protective features are there with sub-ohm capacity and the power to vape throughout the weekend happily, unconcerned about charging your 18650 battery.
