Vape, E-Cig & Box Mod: Which is the Best in the UK?

A box mod vaping device has been specially designed to give vapers a longer battery life than that which can be expected from e-cigs or vape pens. They are called box mods because of their box-like shape which is fairly large and enables the accommodation of several safety features as well as the ability to offer variable temperature controls and voltages which gives vapers a better way to customise their vaping experience to suit their own preferences in a way that cannot be done with a regular e-cigarette or vape pen. While some vape mods include an inbuilt battery, others do not and therefore a separate battery must be purchased. Sometimes, a tank or clearomizer also has to be bought separately – a clear glass or plastic tank which attaches to the box mod to hold the eliquid. Clearomizers contains atomisers, the part of the box mod which heats up the liquid to create the vapour. Here we look at some of the best box mods available on the market this year so that you can choose the best one to suit your individual vaping style.
