If you’re a fan of clouds, cloud chasing or vape tricks, you’ve probably come across the term “mechanical mods” or “mech mods” several times. For someone unfamiliar with what mechanical vape mods are and how they work, mechanical vapes can seem extremely complex and difficult to understand.
Mechanical mods (also known as mech mods) aren’t as sophisticated as they seem. Basically, a mech mod is a device that supplies pure battery power to an atomizer. While mech mods seem like complex contraptions that can only be understood by electrical engineers, it turns out mech mods are actually the most simple of all vape mods.
How Do Mechanical Mods Work?
Mechanical mods are extremely minimal in functionality. As basic as possible, the mod’s casing houses a battery. The battery is positioned to connect with both the top (positive) and bottom (negative) caps of the mod. When the mod is fired through the push of a button, the bottom cap makes contact with the battery and allows current to flow into the coil. There are no circuit boards or advanced technical aspects - just a simple circuit powered by a battery source.
Who Are Mechanical Mods For?
Generally, mechanical mods are said to be best for more advanced vapers. They are especially meant for individuals who want a completely customized vaping experience and don’t mind spending the extra time to do so. For people interested in blowing ridiculously large clouds or going beyond the power of the PV models found at their local vape store, mech mods may be the best option.
