Best Mods of 2016 So Far…


Now you might be thinking it’s a bit soon for a list of the top five mods of 2016 when we’re only just over a third of the way through it, scarily fast I know. However with the device manufacturers releasing products at an alarming rate there have been so many great additions honestly it’s been a struggle waiting this long.
So with no further delay here’s the shortlist.

1) iPV5 by Pioneer4You

With 200 watts of power the iPV5 has enough for even the most hardened vaper. The state of the art upgradeable YiHi SX330-200 chipset is what really sets this mod apart. From the rounded design to the exemplary temperature control capabilities this mod is hard to beat. As it requires two 18650 batteries you can ramp up the power and still enjoy a good session. If that wasn’t enough this baby can fire down to 0.05Ω with a titanium coil and up to 120 joules! A very powerful and affordable mod that will stand the test of time due to the upgradeable chip.

2) Mini Volt Kit by Council of Vapor

The Mini Volt Kit is the perfect stepping stone for vapers who want to experience sub-ohming without carrying a large device around. Able to fire down to 0.2Ω this variable 40 watt device will kick out some serious clouds for its size. The 1300mAh internal battery does its job well and gives a good few hours of vaping (depending on wattage, usage and coil resistance). The tiny screen is well lit and gives all the information needed. The three different strength settings (soft, standard and power) are a great feature as they allow the user to easily change their vaping experience depending on the situation. A little pocket rocket that will open your eyes to the sub-ohm world.

3) Reuleaux RX200 by Wismec

From the amount of RX200’s present at VapeJam you’d think Wismec were giving these away. You can tell this is designed by JayBo when you hold it as the curved hexagonal shape means it fits perfectly in the hand. The aluminium alloy construction makes the device lightweight and durable. On top of that the simple ergonomics allow even a 200W device to be easy to use. As the RX200 requires three 18650 batteries running in series the battery life when vaping at around 60W is incredible, this thing just keeps on going. A real balance of style and substance make this device a winner for any self-respecting sub-ohmer.

4) Mini Quest Kit by Aspire

I would have put this mod in the line-up based purely on aesthetics as it just looks so damn good! However take a look under the bonnet and this device is even more impressive. Made up of a 50W Pegasus Mini mod and Triton Mini tank the overall effect is sleek and classy in any of the available colours. What really makes the difference to me is the Pegasus Mini’s ability to fire resistances between 0.15Ω – 1.8Ω which offers great versatility. As it only needs one 18650 battery its especially cheap to have a spare. A great device for vapers in that in between stage from mouth to lung and straight to lung hits.

5) Stick One Plus Kit by Smok

I’ve added the Smok Stick One Plus Kit in as some vapers prefer a stick to a box. The 2000mAh internal battery won’t allow you to vary the wattage or voltage manually and there’s no screen. However who said the more buttons and features the better? Trends are cyclical and this device harks back to a simpler vaping time *gazes nostalgically into the distance* when it was about the most flavour and vapour with the least hassle. With only one button you’d be hard pressed to mess up the operation of the Smok Stick. The real jewel in the crown has to be the Micro TFV4 Tank which gives just as incredible flavour as its bigger brother. Compatible with 0.3Ω Micro Fused Clapton Dual coils and 0.25Ω Micro Stainless Steel coils this tank really is taste furious. Just the ticket for vapers who want all the flavour they can handle without any of the fiddling about with settings and external batteries.

Although the iPV5 made it a photo finish for us the RX200 has no comparison at the moment for power output, ease of use and aesthetics. A Vapour Evolution favourite and one that we think you’ll love too.
