Best Mods of the Rest of 2016


As we’re nearing the end of the year I thought it was apt to finish the best devices countdown. After the frankly depressing year in regards to the passing of some much loved celebrities and some political decisions we won’t go into I think we need a bit of cheering up.

1) Pico 75W by Eleaf

This mod is the definition of a pocket rocket. The curved sides and small size make it very comfortable in the hand. As the Pico only needs one 18650 battery it can be charged via the micro USB port and this little baby can kick out 75W of power. As you’d imagine that will reduce the battery life but for most users around 35W it will last an average working day. The only possible downside is the battery cover sits proud of the rest of the mod making any tanks or RDA’s above 22mm a squeeze or not possible.

2) Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 Designed by JayBo

Another cracking addition to the Reuleaux family again designed by JayBo. The main difference with previous models is that the interchangeable battery covers allow the user to choose between two or three 18650’s. This changes the size and the maximum power output between 150W and 200W respectively. With the ability to fire coils down to 0.05Ω nobody will be left wanting for more.

Available here.

3) Vape Pen 22 by Smok

Taking pen style vapes to a new level of flavour and vapour the Vape Pen 22 (so called because of its 22mm diameter) uses a 0.4Ω dual coil. The 1650mAh internal battery will be just about enough to get through an average day. Ideally the battery life would be longer but that would impact the truly tiny size (just 105mm long) of this cloud machine. With only one button, top filling tank and no screen this is very easy to use.

Have a little peek here.

4) Alien Kit by Smok

The device for the cloud chaser in you. Consisting of the dual 18650 220W Alien box mod and the Baby Beast TFV8 tank this is the closest flavour to using a dripper that we’ve experienced. The shape and design looks great which I would describe as a Tron-esque curved rectangle. The small size belies the power within and really shows how far vaping has come in the last 12 months. The firing bar, instead of a button, is showing up across a few of Smok’s new products. Personally I love that it feels very solid, firm and responsive. The hinged battery door ensures that even the most butter fingered vaper doesn’t have to worry about dropping or losing a vital part.

Fancy it? Have a little gander just here.

5) X30 Rover Kit by Aspire

This teeny tiny 30W box mod is the ultimate on the go vape. This comes with the Nautilus X tank which works perfectly at around 14W. Aspire have managed to fit a 2000mAh battery into the minuscule internal battery device (60mm x 36mm x 22.5mm). Just right for the vaper that wants a discrete variable device with a screen but isn’t bothered about big clouds.

Have a little look just here.


Drum roll please…this one is close between a few of the devices. For overall size, aesthetic and ergonomics a few score highly but overall the Wismec 2/3 (especially as it can be customised in terms of size and power) has to be crowned the winner. So another Wismec designed by JayBo takes the top prize, is anyone going to knock them off their perch next year?

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Vapour Evolution!
