Mechanical mods are revered for their enhanced vaping experience. They allow the vaper to adjust their vaping settings to their own needs.
Mechanical mods are more than variable wattage. They are about letting you build your own coils to your preferred specification and wicking to guarantee the right amount of vape liquid gets to the coil. You also have a diverse range of RDA options to pick from.
It doesn’t matter how unique your vaping preferences are with a mechanical mod. You can easily get the mod to replicate your desired performance.
What are vape mechanical mods?
Mechanical mods are the simplest form of a vape mod. The mod comprises of a body which is often cylindrical or box, batteries, a firing mechanism and a pin connecting the atomiser and the battery. That is all there is to a mechanical mod.
Unlike the more advanced types of mods, mechanical mods don’t feature temperature control. There’s no current regulation, and you must do most of the operation mechanically.
Because mechanical mods don’t have any safety features or backups, it’s highly recommended that they are only operated by experienced hands who understand how they work and how to use them safely.
How to Use mechanical mods
When buying mechanical mods, it’s vital that you know how to use the mod safely. The mod is unregulated, meaning the atomiser draws up 100% of the battery power.
It’s critical that you fully understand Ohm’s law to ensure you can use the mod safely and you also need to know safe battery practices to avoid accidental firing and other mishaps.
For the mechanical mod to work, it holds a 18650 battery. Stronger varieties pack up to 26650 batteries. The mod has a pin on top with a 510 connector and a small compartment which holds the vape juice.
All you have to do is press the firing button, which accesses the battery and supplies enough power to coils to create vapes off the juice you add in the small compartment. The vape clouds are what you inhale.
You have to be careful about vaping for long periods of time. It can be risky to vape from a battery that is drained. As the battery drains, the hits will start to get weaker. It’s a sign you need to recharge your batteries.
What to consider when buying a mechanical mod
Mechanical mods don’t have many parts. However, even with the limited parts, you should carefully choose each of them for the best experience. Some of the features and parts you should pay extra attention to when buying a mechanical mod include:
- The mod should have a lock mechanism to prevent accidental firing.
- Go for a mod made from high-quality materials, so it lasts longer. You can also check reviews for the best mechanical mods.
- Mods with vent holes to release the hot gases are safer and better to use.
Hybrid mechanical mods
Mechanical mods are the most basic devices in the vaping world. With no wires, chipset or circuits to worry about, these devices can look quite daunting to someone who has never used one before.
Mechanical mods are not for the vaping novice. A basic understanding of battery safety and Ohms law is needed before you should consider buying your first mechanical mod. This mod differs from standard mechanical mods by having no battery adjustment and by having a ‘hybrid’ connection. The hybrid connection is where there is no centre pin protruding from the mod, and instead, the pin sticks out of the top cap on your atomizer (which can be adjusted).
The benefit of this type of connection is that you get maximum power immediately and don’t have to wait for an electronic switch to trigger as you do with regulated mods. However, this kind of direct connection can be dangerous if you are not paying attention or are using a sub-ohm tank on your mod without realizing it.
Why Use a Mechanical mod?
Mechanical mods have no electronics and are comprised of mainly metal tubes that hold batteries in place and connect with an atomizer. Because there are no electronics, there’s no regulation of power or safety protections built into the device.
The main benefit of using a mechanical mod is that you get to experience pure power and excellent flavours. A mechanical mod produces massive clouds because of this raw power, which can be fun if you're into cloud chasing. However, these mods are notorious for being dangerous and even deadly if they're not handled properly.
If you're using a mechanical mod just to be different or because they're cool-looking and everyone else has one, then we suggest you stick with regulated devices instead. If you're still interested in trying one out, please keep reading below, and we'll teach you how to use one safely.
Are mechanical mods right for Beginners?
Mechanical mods can be intimidating. They're arguably the least user-friendly type of device for beginners. If you're just getting into vaping, starting with a regulated device and a tank is best until you're familiar with how vaping works and your preferences.
So, if you're new to vaping and want to try mods, the best place to start is with something that's been designed for beginners.
The only way a mechanical mod could be suitable for a beginner would be if they used it as a mech squonk. In this case, the tank wouldn't be directly connected to the battery (and therefore the circuit), so there's no risk of shorts. However, you'll still need to know how to build coils safely, which is a skill that takes time and practice.
Mechanical Mod safety and maintenance
Many people are intimidated by mechanical mods, but they are actually simple to use and maintain. Mechanical mods don't have any safety features built into regulated devices, like short circuit protection, low resistance protection, and automatic cutoff in response to a low battery charge. Instead, they rely on user knowledge to stay safe. If you want to use a mechanical mod safely, you need to know how it works and how to avoid common mistakes like using an inappropriate build or putting batteries in backwards.
Here are some maintenance tips to consider when using mechanical mods
- Install the battery correctly. A battery that is installed incorrectly is at risk of overheating and rupturing.
- Clean your mod regularly and make sure it's dry before storing it. If water gets into your mod, it can cause a short circuit and damage your mod and battery.
- Before using the mod for the first time, check if the battery is fully charged and use a regulated charger to charge it. If you are unsure which charger to use, consult an experienced vaper or your local vape store staff member.
- Use a test meter to check the resistance of your coil before installing it. This will help you avoid short-circuits and other problems caused by low-resistance coils (sub-ohm).
- Regular cleaning of your mechanical mod should be done at least once every week, depending on how much you vape and where you vape. If you are a heavy vaper and vape in dusty areas, then you should clean it more often.
- If your mechanical mod has been dropped in water or liquid, allow time for it to dry naturally before reusing it.
Mechanical Mod FAQs
What types of batteries should I use?
Mechanical mods are designed for use with IMR Li-Mn high drain cells, which are rechargeable lithium batteries with very low internal resistance. These cells can provide more power than standard Li-Ion batteries and are much safer. Do not use other types of batteries in your mechanical mod!
How do I care for my Mechanical Mod?
All moving parts on a mechanical mod require lubrication to prevent wear and tear. Periodically apply a small amount of food-grade silicone lube to all threads on the device to ensure smooth operation, especially where the tube meets the top cap and bottom cap (if applicable).
