Most people start vaping using a Cigarette look alike.
But find the cigarette look a likes are not quite giving them the satisfaction they where hoping for, and or are looking for.
The majority of people soon start looking for a better alternative, and switch over to an eGo style battery.
They eGo style battery is most commonly used by people that are new to vaping, people that have discovered the cigarette look alike and are not sure whether vaping is for them and don’t want to spend too much money for something that might not be for them, but also long term vapers that just don’t want anything bigger, or have something that is easy to take with them.
The length of eGo style batteries vary due to the various sizes of the battery itself (mAh) which is located within the (most commonly) black tube, but are also available in different colours
The width of the eGo style battery can be compared to the width of a Sharpy Marker.
Mods are larger and most commonly used by people that found vaping is the thing for them and want to use E-cigs long term.
They are used by the more advanced user, and or people that are looking for that little bit extra they can not get out of an eGo style battery.
Mod batteries are mostly longer (there are a few exceptions like telescope mods) and wider compared to an eGo style battery.
They come in all sorts of different styles, shapes and sizes
Mechanical mods (these mods only have an on off button (like the eGo style batteries) and are not regulated, which means that the more your battery drains the weaker your vape production will be.
They are not surge protected, but for user safety, many choose to add a safety fuse , others will use a kick which does not only protect the user from the mod potentially shorting out, but also enables the user to change the wattage/ voltage
Variable Voltage/ Variable Wattage mods These come in all different shapes and sizes. The user has a choice of either VV, VW or both.
The advantage of these mods is that the user can adjust/ control the temperature of their vape
These mods are fuse protected, so whenever there is a fault the mod will stop working.
Most VV/VW devices will have a LED/ O-LED display which will show the user at what voltage/ wattage they are vaping, shows the oHm’s of the coil they are using and will indicate when there is a fault (E.G a fault code) some will even have a puff counter showing how many times you have used the mod
