Here’s a question for you: exactly when did smoking become anti-social? Of course, we know about the dangers that prolonged smoking can bring – not to mention passive smoking – but if you watch a 1950’s, 60’s or 70’s film, you’ll often see the main star with a cigarette, happily smoking away.

Indeed, smoking was promoted not so long ago as a trendy – even sexy – activity, one that you should be indulging in if you already didn’t! Tobacco companies were once the primary sponsors of a wide range of sports, for example, but all that went by the wayside when smoking in public buildings was banned.

We’re not promoting smoking here – far from it, for it is clearly detrimental to health and cost the NHS a fortune – but it’s interesting to not how trends change. There was a time when you walked into your local pub and entered a room full of swirling smoke, and simply accepted it; now, the situation is very different, and much more pleasant for all involved.

People smoke in designated areas, and many have taken the initiative to use the recent ban to change their ways and take up the much healthier alternative: vaping. That’s what we’re talking about in this review, because vaping is big business, and there are lots of kits and accessories on the market.

So, before we go on to review the top best vape mods available in the UK, let’s talk a little more about what they do, and what you need to know.

It’s a one-button design and comes ate a sensible price, and one that is very compact and neatly made.

This one is surprisingly powerful with a 1500mAH battery – rechargeable via micro USB ports – and provides a large 18watts of power. It comes with the advanced Innokin Prism-S tank, which promises extra efficient performance and better flavour all round.

4: Innokin Silver Cool Fire


The more we look at these vaping devices, the clearer it becomes that style is as important to the manufacturers as purpose. These are designed to be seen with – the intention is obviously to make vaping cool and acceptable – and this one, with its very attractive brushed metal finish, is a very neat design indeed.

It’s sleek and simple, and very modern, and also small and compact. It has a wealth of handy features, including a puff counter so you know how much you’ve used it, and it feels good to handle.

The downside of this one is that it provides only 40W of power; that’s the lowest output so far. However, it is cleverly designed to be energy efficient, so none is wasted.

It does have a long-life battery, so you can use it plenty before you need to charge, and at a little over 200g in weight it is barely noticeable when in your pocket. All in all, despite the low power, it’s a neat little device, and is sensibly priced at less than £30.

Pros
  • Small
  • Light
  • The price
Cons
  • Low power output

5: Vaporesso Swag 80W TC Starter Kit

It’s the full package with a casing that measures 104x48x25mm, which is very compact for a model such as this, and offers up to a massive 80 watts of power. A beginner starting with this model will be able to continue with it for a long time.

It comes with two different coil heads for a choice of output, and they are easy to change between. The tank capacity is a reasonable 2ml and it is an advanced design offering ease of use and efficient vaping. To refill, you simply twist open the top and add the fluid you want.

There is everything here for the perfect starter pack, and it is no surprise that this is a popular model. It’s also affordable for what it is, so we recommend it goes on every beginner’s shortlist.

Pros
  • Comprehensive starter kit
  • Powerful
  • Two coil heads
Cons
  • Only 2ml capacity

6: Wismec RS200X


When we set out to complete this review, we didn’t expect the variation in design across the various models. Stand this one next to, for example, the one reviewed above, and you would think you were looking at two totally different devices!

This is further confirmation that style is as important as function when it comes to vaping devices; it looks very space-age, is very neat and trendy, and features a large screen showing all the information you need to enjoy your vaping to the full.

This one comes with 200W of power, so is one of the more powerful models on offer here, and feels nice in the hand as well as providing variable output and offering full temperature control. It is compact enough to slip into a pocket or bag, and it is easy to fill and use.

Once again, you can choose your vaping liquid from a full range of flavours, and you will find this one to be very handy and stylish. Furthermore, it’s good value, too, at less than £40, so us cheaper than some of those reviewed here. We think this one is well worth a second look, so add it to your shortlist.

Pros
  • Very stylish
  • 200W
Cons
  • None, we like it

 

7: Wismec RX200 TC

This one is the same as the above, except it’s white, so here’s what we have to say:

8: Tesla WYE II 215W Box ModBest Box Mod

The Tesla brand is well-known for quality vape mods, and this is one of the best box mods on the market. The WYEII is a very powerful – 215watt in fact – box style of mod with many impressive features.

For instance, it can range from as low as 7watts up to the maximum, and a smart chip decides what is the best power usage for the resistance involved. This is the sort of clever trick we expect from Tesla, and it’s a nice touch.

Also impressive is that it has various in-built safety features, it is fully adjustable and a clear screen tells you what is going on at all times. It measures just 56x30x86mm – that’s very compact for a device of this power – and is made from tough ABS for durability.

It has four taste modes so you can adjust to your liking, and adjustable temperature. It comes with its own little carry pouch, and takes 2 x 18650 batteries (not supplied), it really is one of the best box mods available.

Pros
  • Advanced chip
  • Compact
  • Powerful
Cons
  • Batteries not included

9: Smok Stick Prince TFV12

The very popular Smok range of new vape mods includes this one, the TFV12 which is one if the ‘Stick’ designs. These are finished in jazzy colours and patterns, and are the familiar thin circular style.

This is a powerful and advanced model – it comes with a 3000Mah battery which will provide up to 60watts of power – and it is designed to be efficient yet simple to use. It comes with 2ml tank, but take note there are larger tanks you can buy from Smok that are compatible.

Refilling is easy – you simply twist off the top and that’s it – and it has an adjustable air-flow design so that you can vary your output and taste. This one promises lengthy battery capacity before refilling is needed, and features simple one-touch operation for ease of use.

There are no additional accessories with this model, yet at the price we think it is certainly one of the best options in this category.

Pros
  • Smok design
  • Simple refill
  • One touch operation
Cons
  • No accessories

 

10: Smok V2 Species 230W

This is one of the top of the range models from Smok Species selection, and offers everything a vape user could want in what is an impressive package. It’s neatly designed – it measures just 82x49x30mm – and comes in a range of impressive colours, including a very nice rainbow option.

The box design model is powered by a rechargeable battery that offers up to 230watt output – depending on the resistance of the coil involved – and it is supplied with a variety of different resistance coils.

Other features include a simple to-filling design, a clever interface and display screen from which you can control output and temperature variations, a triple airflow control, and a cut off that means you have added safety.

It also has anti-overcharging protection, and a simple battery door for when you need to replace. This one has to be among the very best vape mods on the market, but bear in mind you will pay more than £50 for one of these. It’s still worth looking at if you want the best vaping experience.

Pros
  • Advanced design
  • Powerful 230w
  • Easy fill
Cons
  • Not cheap

So, there you have it: ten of the best vaping mods UK that will help you make the transition from unhealthy smoking to healthy vaping. Let’s recap some of the major points to consider when buying a vaping kit.

How It Works

Tobacco has been popular for centuries, either to smoke or even to chew. Many millions of people enjoy the relaxing benefits of tobacco every day, but in the latter part of the 20th century, research proved that smoking could be directly linked to an increased chance of suffering from cancer, as well as other diseases.

This led to widespread condemnation of smoking, and in particular the fact that non-smokers could be potentially harmed by smoke from other’s cigarettes eventually led to the banning of smoking in public building – as well as in the workplace and other places – in the UK, as well as in many other countries.

While the traditional tobacco industry clearly suffered from the ban, a new industry sprung up in its wake: welcome to your life the e-Cigarette! These clever devices offer a way of getting the hit without the harm.

The difference is that they produce a vapour – rather than smoke – and are generally nicotine-free (although there are some with nicotine included, and it’s important to know that it’s the tar and other toxins in tobacco smoke, not the nicotine, that is harmful to health) and are safe for all around. If you smoke, and you are looking at moving to vaping, you’re in the right place, so let’s have a look at the top 10 vaping mods on the market right now, and get you moving in the right direction!

Important Features to Look For

There are distinct differences between many of the models reviewed here, so let’s have a look at some of the major points to look out for when buying a vaping mod.

  • Power output – the available power output of these devices ranges from a mere 30W to 250W, so clearly there is a lot to consider. The power output will impact on battery life, however, which leads us to…
  • Battery Life – these devices use rechargeable batteries, so you need to look for one with sensible life in order to get the best out of it. You don’t want to be recharging after every use, so check them out carefully.
  • Full Control – look for a model with temperature and vapour output control for the best results.
  • Price – the price range of these varies from around £30 to a little less than £60, so make sure you choose your model carefully.

These are not all of the features, but the ones we feel are the main considerations for getting the best out of your vaping. All that needs to be done now is to sum up, so let’s wrap it up!

Let’s Wrap It Up!

It is worth saying that, while vaping is clearly healthier than smoking tobacco, there are still some who consider it controversial. Some research has suggested that it may, in fact, be harmful in certain circumstances, yet it is clearly safer than traditional cigarettes.

The models reviewed here are all nicotine-free, so you don’t have the trouble of addiction. If you are choosing to vape as a way of giving up, this is a good way of getting started, without the need to stop enjoying your tobacco flavour.

It’s difficult to choose one out of the ten to recommend as, essentially, they all do the same thing, but if we had to choose one, it would perhaps be number 6, the very stylish model from Wismec. With 200W of output power, a sensible price and great looks – plus a long-life battery and full controllability – it is the best value here and one of the best vape kit’s around, so make sure you consider it carefully before making a choice.

Meanwhile, happy vaping, and be safe and healthy!
