There are people who prefer compact, low-powered e-cigarettes, and then there are others who want a large, variable wattage box mod to provide enormous clouds of vapor and extended battery life. Vape mods are available in a variety of configurations and come in all shapes and sizes. Let us share some of our top picks for the best box mods of 2018:

We’ve broken down our list of box mods into two separate categories. Other than a few exceptions, vape mods are generally powered by either one or two batteries. To simplify your search for the best vape mod, select one of the following:

CHOOSE A SUB-CATEGORY:

50-100W Vape Mods (Under $75)

Although a dual battery vape mod will provide significantly more power and battery life, 50W to 100W is where most people find their vaping sweet spot. Only one battery is required to provide this level of power output, and sticking with a single battery will keep your device as small and lightweight as possible.

We’ve been fortunate enough to test out most of the top products over the years, these are our picks for the best box mods (50-100W) under $75:

Similar to the Therion (above), the Lost Vape Paranormal DNA75C Box Mod is another daul 18650 device that offers all of the benefits provided by dual batteries – and the eVolv DNA75C chipset. Both are designed in the USA by Lost Vape and you can certainly see the similarities, but we prefer the aesthetics of the Therion, and that’s why we rated it higher.

Other than some subtle differences in design, they’re virtually identical. The Paranormal has an easier-to-use battery door, but the Therion is smaller and looks better, in our opinion. Lost Vape produces some of the best box mods on the market and you certainly can’t go wrong with either device.
