Best Variable Voltage Mods 2017

All vaping devices are generally divided in two groups: regulated and nonregulated. The later better known as “mechs”. What many people don’t know is that smack in the middle, in the cross section where those two groups meet, a third, quite interesting subgroup exists. Yes, we’re talking about Variable Voltage devices, or “VV mods” for short.

You may find “typical” regulated mods too complicated. Especially those latest Temperature Control ones. Who needs fiddling with settings? You should just press a button to vape – and even that’s “more complicated” compared to smoking, for people just getting into vaping. As evidenced by eLeaf using air-activated motion sensors in some of their starter, simpler devices.

You may find mechs need too much attention on your part to vape safely on them: clean them, check every connection, spring, other metal thingy, your resistance on a different device / Ohm meter, your battery level, your battery sag. Plus, build in specific ways, within specific limits, depending on batteries, device, maybe even the weather. It ends up being as much fuss as regulated mods, but in a different way.

You may ask yourself, “how do I work this”, and you may tell yourself “this is not as simple as I thought”. Sung over “Once in a Lifetime” by Talking Heads. And that’s when you may turn your gaze towards Variable Voltage devices.

But… What are they?

Variable Voltage devices, to which we’ll refer as “VV” from now on… well… to understand what they are and how they work, you have to understand how mechs and regulated devices work. A simple way to explain it would be that we’re talking about regulated devices that, in actual use, feel more like mechs. But they’re regulated. Nah, it’s not confusing. Let’s dive into a longer but easier to digest explanation.

Mech mods are simple devices: an enclosure for one or more batteries, a button that connects the batteries to a connector and that’s it. You screw an atomizer into the connector, you place a battery in the mech mod, you press its button, the battery’s positive and negative poles connect to the positive and negative posts of the atomizer, where a coil with a wick heats up. Hey presto: vapor.

There’s nothing to “adjust” on mechs. All the “adjusting” depends on the coils you’re using in your atomizer, in conjunction with the batteries used. High-drain 20 Amp batteries with a 0.25 Ohm build? Lots of hot vapor (and we hope you know what you’re doing). Over-Ohm builds? Significant battery life but only wisps of vapor. That’s all the “adjusting” you can do. The mech mod, as a device, only offers a singular button: you press it to vape. And you release it when you don’t. That’s it.

A tiny weeny minuscule problem with mechs is carelessness, of user error: if you don’t take proper care of everything, your battery may short. And that’s when, in the worst case scenarios, a device can explode. The explosions you may have heard about? Usually badly-maintained mechs, with dangerous builds (that push the batteries too much), in inexperienced user hands. That’s why most of the vaping world has moved to regulated devices.

The simple way to understand how regulated mods work is by imagining a chip getting between the batteries, the buttons of the device and the atomizer. When the button is pressed, the batteries don’t connect directly to the atomizer. Instead, the chip “pulls” electrical current from them and “pushes” it to the atomizer, according to the user’s settings.

This brings some layers of safety into vaping, since the chip can detect shorts and won’t push the batteries over their limits. And it also brings easier adjustability, allowing the user to “tune” the amount of power “pulled” from the batteries and “pushed” to the atomizer’s coil(s), or, in the case of Temperature Control supporting devices, also set a preferred Temperature he’d like to vape at and let the mod auto-regulate its power. The power you’re using in regulated mods isn’t depended on the build itself or the charge level of the batteries.

For the user to adjust the level of power, regulated mods usually complement their main fire button with two more buttons, for increasing and decreasing the Wattage. And for getting into menus. And the more complex the menus get, the more you need to use button combinations, or click some buttons a number of times. And try to read a small font in a tiny non-lit screen under the sun. As we mentioned before, it can get complicated.

VV mods solve this problem by throwing away all the bells and whistles and keeping just the basics. They are regulated mods but, like mechs, you theoretically only use one button to use them: press it to vape. Practically, though, since they are adjustable, you have to do the whole “adjusting” in some way. To keep it (arguably) simpler than regulated mods, most VV devices implement some type of rotating dial. Left for less power. Right for more power. Press fire to vape.

And why is that simpler or better than regulated mods?

A realist / pessimist would say that VV mods don’t actually make the whole process any simpler than “proper” regulated mods: you still have an “Up-Down-Fire triad”. You only miss the screen. But that’s the whole point.

Together with the screen, VV mods “forget” about the rest of the settings that some people never use in their mods: preheat. Temperature Control (and all the baggage that comes with it). Wattage and Temperature Curves. Screen brightness, logos, Flappy Bird clones.

Stuff that isn’t “press the button to vape”.

They keep, though, all the safety additions, while finding a way to offer some basic adjustability to the vaping experience by the addition of a simple dial.

And that’s why they end up offering a vastly simpler experience. The lack of a screen is considered the whole feature and the reason to prefer them. Because they’re only a “turn the dial right to increase power until you find your sweet spot, press fire button to vape, dial it down a bit if it’s too much, leave it there for the rest of the month” affair.

An extra, but significant, bonus of this simplicity is the famous “there’s one less thing to break” feature. You can’t break a non-existing screen. That usually adds a lot to the sturdiness of those devices, making them earn their “built like a brick” characterization when directly compared with typical variable wattage mods.

Sounds good! Any relatively popular suggestions?

Unfortunately, VV mods are a minor and very specific subgroup in the world of vaping. There aren’t as many devices to choose from as mechs or regulated mods. Thankfully, most VV mods are from simply good to truly stellar in doing what they should do: “feeding” electrical current from the batteries to the coils. You pretty much can’t go wrong with any of the following choices.

Tesla Invader III 

One of the most popular VV mods, and deservedly so, the Invader III is the very definition of “built like a brick”. Or, rather, like a metal canister. Working with dual 18650 batteries, its chipset can “push” up to 240 Watts to the atomizer, or even exceed that limit when using higher than 20 Amp cells. Its potentiometer adjusts the power fed to the coils from 3.6V to 6.6V and its chipset comes with all the kinds of protections expected from any regulated mod – reverse battery, short, low voltage, over current, high device temperature and a 10 second puff limit.

Buy the Tesla Invader III

HexOhm 3.0 

A premium VV mod, the HexOhm has earned fans all over the world thanks to its build quality and sturdiness. Using it feels like holding a piece of factory equipment, built to outlive you after the coming nuclear apocalypse. Visitors from the future will probably have some in working, mint condition, experiencing first hand how people of the 21st century vaped.

The device can push up to 30 Amps / 180 Watts using two 18650 cells and just like the Invader III comes with the same kinds of protections as well as a master on/off switch.

Charon Adjustable 218

Taking the “we took the screen and buttons off and replaced them with a dial” literally, Smoant released the Charon Adjustable 218. And the world rejoiced. For it was, practically, the same mod as the much more popular Charon 218 TC, with the screen and buttons replaced with a simple, singular, dial. But keeping all the build quality of its bigger brother – and the protections and adjustability that came with its chip.

Since the original Charon 218 TC is a simple mod to use, with the only options in its menu being related to its TC modes, if you’re not interested in TC at all you might skip it altogether and prefer the simpler Adjustable 218. You’ll end up using it exactly like you’d use the Charon and you’ll have one less screen to break.

Buy the Smoant Charon 218W

Dovpo M VV APV

One of the most feature-complete VV mods available, the M VV by Dovpo manages to be even simpler to use than the Invader, HexOhm and Charon. Using a series of LEDs instead of just one, the M VV can instantly show the charge level of the two 18650 cells in it, as well as the state of the mod.

The device can reach 300W and output 8.8V and, as foretold in legends, includes all aforementioned types of protection against Things Going Wrong.

Buy the Dovpo M

Is there anything else to know?

If a more simple way to vape looks appealing to you, then VV mods are a great option. They’re the closest you can get to the simplicity of mechs while having the safety and adjustability of variable wattage devices. Minus most of the fuss of both. But…

A thing to consider is that this “all the fuss” is, simultaneously, a feature of mechs and variable wattage / Temperature Control devices.

A mech is a purely mechanical device, you can fully take apart and service yourself. And VV mods may feel as sturdy and not have a screen to break, but they do rely on a non-user-serviceable chip.

A variable wattage device offers easier selection of a specific power level you like vaping at and doesn’t force you to carry a screwdriver, search for coils or break a nail trying to adjust it. And if (properly) supporting Temperature Control, it can also constantly offer exactly the vaping experience you’ve tuned in.

Those are the features and the perks coming with each device category. The things that make them worth picking up or ignoring. And that’s why VV devices have their own place in vaping and are worth looking into if you’d like something that could even be described as the bigger, uber-powerful, “pro” version of a starter AIO device.

Just add atomizer, dial in, hit and vape.

IJOY Maxo Zenith + RDTA 5s Package and WonderVape Evaluate



Execs

  • Good worth
  • Superior colour choice
  • Straightforward to construct
  • Not messy
  • Nice colour choice


We’re all creatures of behavior, proper?

All of us have a sure method of doing issues, a method we’re used to and a approach we’re snug with. However typically, one thing come alongside and makes you modify these habits.

My recreation changer?

Now, for those who’ve learn any of my tales, you’ll discover that I like my tanks. I’ve a couple of RDAs and RDTAs, however I’m a tank woman. I’ve by no means actually discovered anything that I favored at a lot as my useful, dandy tank. I used to be talked right into a Limitless RDTA, with the story that you simply acquired the most effective of each worlds. However, all I obtained was a multitude.

Now, let me begin from the start.

Opening up the field, I used to be cautiously impressed. I just like the look of the modern, silver package. The design, made to suit properly into the grip of your hand, has all the time been a favourite of mine. It has a reasonably good weight with out batteries, however because it takes three, I used to be skeptical that it will be too heavy when absolutely loaded.

However it remained a very good, strong weigh within the hand.

Two issues about this system which are recreation changers are the hearth button and the dial. It has a freaking big hearth button, overlaying your complete part on prime not coated by the atomizer.

And sure, I stated on prime.

Truthfully didn’t assume I’d look after the on-top hearth button. The primary few occasions I went to fireside it (which, in fact I needed to do instantly), I stored feeling round the place it ought to be, annoyed that it wasn’t there.

Preliminary ideas have been – that is silly, simply put it the place it goes.

Inside minutes although – having thrown on my useful tank to provide it a go – I used to be having no drawback utilizing an on-top hearth button. I used to be truly digging it, having fun with the large measurement and small ridges beneath my fingers.

I’m loving it.

Now, the dial however, that was more durable to get used to.

I grabbed the educational booklet included and tried to seek out out one thing concerning the dial. Since this gadget doesn’t have a display and no different buttons however the hearth button, that is the one option to modify the depth of the hit. I’m used to operating my common mod and adjusting my wattage, with buttons.

The dial on the entrance of the Zenith ranges from 2.7 to six.2 volts. Not used to measuring this manner I began low and labored my approach up with small turns. Didn’t take lengthy to seek out my good spot.

So, operating the Zenith with my tank, I’ve already damaged two of my habits inside minutes. I’m digging the hearth button and the dial.

Now, and not using a display, how have you learnt your batteries are low? The superior inexperienced LED lights let you realize all you want.

Subsequent up I need to throw a construct into the shiny new RDTA.

Now, I’m no grasp builder. I exploit premade coils and am simply annoyed when putting in coils.

Usually it’s a battle for me, with vital quantities of cussing and dropping instruments.

Not this time.

I had the coils in inside seconds, simply BAM!

I needed to stand again and look, make sure that I didn’t screw all of it up and do it flawed, it was simply too straightforward. I’m wicking and vaping on this dangerous boy inside minutes, with no cussing. Heck ya, I’m liking it.

Now, I’ve all the time been extra of a flavor-chaser than a cloud woman, however this sucker packs each. Fairly good clouds, and candy taste.

The primary time I acquired into my automotive, I reached for my every day use mod, however stopped myself. As an alternative of my trusty ole woman, I grabbed the Zenith. I made positive to prime off the two.6 ml tank, which is straightforward as a result of it’s a prime, central fill. Which principally means, no mess. Which is awesomeness.

Let me say that I by no means take an RDA or RDTA outdoors of my home. Since I discover them very messy, I exploit them at residence. However since I’m digging this design, with has twin adjustable air flows (backside and aspect), I figured I’d give it a shot.
I used to be capable of tilt and rewet the cotton with ease and for principally the primary time with any type of dripper, I wasn’t wiping juice off of it each 5 seconds. The IJOY RDTA 5s additionally has a “Ultem broad bore drip tip,” which principally means a pleasant, fats tip for superior hits.

I’d undoubtedly advocate this package.

The 24mm IJOY RDTA 5s is available in seven superior colours, chrome steel, black, rainbow, gun metallic, white, orange and purple.

It sells for $33.99 from Heaven Presents, which for bang, is well worth the buck.

The Zenith sells for $42.69 from Heaven Presents and is available in chrome steel, black, purple, orange and white.

The package sells for round $70, which is sweet for this beautiful superior 300w mod and an RDTA that I’m majorly digging.

Truly, as an excessive purple lover, I feel I’m going to select up the purple package and doubtless rainbow IJOY RDTA 5s for my very own private use.

Heaven Presents additionally despatched me the WonderVape RDA to attempt.

Once more, usually I’m going for my tank. However who can move up a shiny, new gadget?

So, I’m going to pop in a construct, utilizing the coils and screw driver that got here with it. Not a lot to it, which says quite a bit, as a result of I suck at getting coils in. As I stated earlier, often putting in coils makes me cuss up a storm. It took some extra finagling than the IJOY RDTA 5s, as a result of my clippers didn’t match nicely into it to chop the ends off. Aside from that there wasn’t a lot too it.

Each the WonderVape RDA two-post construct deck is fairly fool proof, belief me, I’m often the fool in relation to putting in coils. A

Just like the IJOY RDTA 5s, I had coils in fairly shortly. And bam, I used to be wicking and vaping.

Some fairly superior clouds and fairly respectable taste.

I actually loved the convenience of each the WonderVape RDA and the IJOY RDTA 5s. Each of those can be fairly good investments for starting builders.

With a $29.99 price ticket from Heaven Presents, the 24mm WonderVape is value a attempt should you take pleasure in RDAs, or in case you are eager to attempt one. It is available in 4 colours, chrome steel, black, gun metallic and a reasonably superior wanting rainbow.

Backside line, in case you are on the lookout for a brand new arrange, go for this package.

Or in case you are in search of a mod, RDTA or RDA, give an excellent take a look at these. They’re value your time.

One of the best place to purchase the Zenith and the WonderVape RDA is from Heaven Presents.

IMG_2359-150x150.jpg


Wotofo Serpent 50W Package

$61.80



Execs

  • Small measurement
  • Respectable clouds
  • Good taste


Green Serpent Box 50w kit

In as we speak’s evaluation I’ll be looking on the Wotofo Serpent Field package, which incorporates each the Serpent 50w mod and the Serpent Sub Tank. In some ways this mod is the polar reverse of the iJoy Maxo Quad 18650 mod that I reviewed yesterday. It’s petite, has an inner battery, and by comparability has a a lot decrease energy output.

Let’s have a look and see the way it stacks as much as the competitors and if it’s well worth the cash.

Serpent box 50w contents

Look

I acquired the inexperienced model of the mod, which is certainly an eye catching colour. I’d describe it as extra of a sea inexperienced myself, however I’m not a shade naming skilled. I’m personally an enormous fan of distinctive colours, nothing bores me greater than to open a package deal solely to seek out one other black, white, or grey field mod. So the colour decisions on the Serpent Field are undoubtedly a serious plus in my ebook. Together with the inexperienced one I’m reviewing right here, the Serpent mod is on the market in six totally different colours. It’s necessary to notice that the included Serpent Sub Tank will all the time be black regardless of which shade you select. The mod is the one element that has a selection of colours.

The floor of the mod has a pleasant matte-ish really feel to it. Bot the the mod and tank really feel good in my hand and there’s nothing about it that feels low cost. Simply an all-around solidly constructed piece of vaping gear. It’s sufficiently small (54.5 x 43.5 x 28.5 mm) to comfortably slot in a mean individual’s entrance denims pockets. Hell, at this small measurement even you skinny denims sporting mofos will probably be capable of carry this factor round with ease! Haven’t examined that one out for myself although, so your mileage might differ.

So far as the buttons go, you get a bigger firing button close to the highest of the mod and two smaller wattage adjustment buttons close to the underside. All the buttons protrude an honest quantity from the mod and have that round grip engraving, making them very easy to make use of whereas additionally avoiding unintentional activation. No issues right here.

The display is situated on the prime of the mod, proper subsequent to the 510 connector so you’ll be able to simply get a learn on it even whereas taking a draw on the mouthpiece. It’s clear, straightforward to learn, and presents all the data that you simply want.

The Serpent Sub Tank is a particularly light-weight, clean, and well-constructed little tank.

There are not any points with the threading, all the things screwed collectively good and tight with no resistance in any respect.  The airflow management ring works properly and is very easy to regulate with out eradicating the tank from the mod.

General that is an excellently designed little package from Wotofo and I by no means observed any flaws with the looks or development.

Green Serpent box 50w

Efficiency

The straightforward to make use of menu permits you to choose from a couple of totally different modes: wattage, nickel, titanium, chrome steel, and TCR.

The nickel, titanium, and chrome steel temp management modes appeared to work rather well, though I observed that there was no choice to regulate the wattage in these modes. Not an enormous deal because it appeared to be firing at a suitable wattage degree for me.  The wattage mode appeared to protect the battery life longer and, clearly, provides you the choice to regulate the wattage (7W-50W vary).

The interior 2000mAh battery achieved a good battery life. Once I was vaping in variable wattage mode it lasted a few full day of heavy use, regardless that I used to be shortly altering to totally different wattage ranges to check it out. When vaping in temp management mode the battery ran out about midway by way of the day. General not dangerous for a tiny little inner battery.

The tank and included inventory coils labored rather well at on the full vary of wattage choices, though I discovered that I acquired the perfect outcomes when vaping at round 30-4ow. The airflow adjustment is basically clean and I discovered that it primarily helped to create both a hotter or cooler vape, slightly than truly growing the quantity of cloud manufacturing or taste.

Wotofo Serpent Sub Tank

Backside Line

The Wotofo Serpent 50W package is a wonderful entry level in to the world of sub-ohm vaping.

It’s tiny sufficient to turn into you go-to all day vape, but highly effective sufficient to supply some satisfying clouds.

Are there higher, extra highly effective sub-ohm setups available on the market? You guess. However I haven’t seen one with comparable efficiency specs that matches the comfort and portability of the Serpent. It’s nice for newcomers and it additionally deserves a spot within the rotation of superior vapers who need one thing easy that they will throw of their pocket. No want to fret about bulk, no want to fret about 18650 batteries. Only a easy inner battery setup that may get you the sub-ohm vape you want.
