Mechanical Mods generally don't have any circuit boards or wiring, because of the power they produce, its recommended to use Mechanical Mods with Rebuildable Atomizers & it is very important to understand battery safety, Ohms law and how unregulated e-cigarettes work. Our blog on Types of E-cigarettes dives into the different types of e-cigarettes and outlines the benefits using of mech mods as well as the importance of E-cigarette Battery Safety
At UK ECIG STORE we have great range of cheap mech mods kits, stacked mech mods and high end authentic mech mods. Mechanical Mods in the UK are growing in popularity along with rebuildable atomizer tanks, each going hand in hand and are the perfect kit for advance vapers.
Mechanical Mods FAQ
What is a mechanical mod?
A mechanical mod is the name given to a device that has no circuitry inside. Usually, a mechanical mod is styled in the shape of a tube, with a 510 thread at the top of the mod and firing button at the base. The mechanical mod will house a battery which will depend on the size of the mod. The batteries could be either 18650, 20700 or 21700 and would need to be charged in an external charger as mechanical mods do not come with charging ports. Mechanical mods are manufactured by companies from around the world and can be made from materials including stainless steel, copper and brass.
How does a mechanical mod work?
A mechanical mod functions by drawing the direct power from within the battery and sending it to the coils within the atomizer situated on top of the mod. To get the device to work, you would need to ensure that the resistance of the coils installed within is safe for the device, the battery is charged and inserted into the device the correct way and the firing button is reinstalled correctly. Once the mod is ready, you have added cotton into your coils and ensured the cotton is saturated with your e-liquid you are ready to use the device.
How do you fire a mechanical mod?
The style of the mechanical mod will determine how you will fire the mechanical mod. Some mechanical mods have a firing button situated at the bottom of the device and others may have a smaller side firing button.
What are mechanical mods made from?
Mechanical Mods are usually made from stainless steel but some companies opt for other metals such as brass or copper as they are more conductive and will have less voltage drop when used. This will affect how well your device performs and can make a huge difference in the power performance of the battery.
Are mechanical mods safe to use for new vapers?
It is always advised to ensure that you have done your research before using a mechanical mod as if used incorrectly, can be extremely dangerous. It is important to also ensure that you fully understand Ohm’s Law and how it works to avoid personal injury. That said, if you know exactly how they work and are able to rebuild your own coils there is nothing stopping a new vaper using a mechanical mod. Remember, as long as you know everything about the devices and leave yourself with no surprises, then you should be just fine.
