Mechanical Mods

E cig mechanical mod is aslo called unregulated mod. Robust and not easy to break, mechanical mods have their advantages and disadvantages. The lifespan of mech mod is usually longer than standard regulated MODs, because of its simple structure. But it's advised that mech mods are suitable for advanced experienced vapers, as there are no built-in kinds of protection.

 

Mechanical Mod 101
What is a mechanical mod?

A mechanical mod is a simple vaping device that delivers raw battery power to an atomizer with no electronic regulations, no safeguards or protections. As the most basic vaping device, the mechanical mod requires its users to have a rich knowledge of ohm's law, lithium-ion battery safety, and electrical conductivity. Although due to the increasing popularity of high powered VV/VW devices, mech mods are not as popular as they once were, they still have many loyal supporters.


How many parts does a mechanical mod have? 
In most cases, a mechanical mod only has five main parts: a battery housing, positive and negative contacts, a button, a 510 connection and an atomizer.


The battery housings are usually in the form of metal tubes, but the battery housings of mechanical box mods are also common in wood or plastic. Mechanical tube mods often house only one battery while mechanical box mods can take one or more batteries.
You can also find two contacts in a mechanical mod: the positive contact in the top cap and the negative one in the button which is typically spring loaded. 


Another thing that you can find on a mechanical mod is the fire button, which will complete the  electric circuit after being pressed. Most of the fire buttons on tube mods are recessed for the aim when avoiding accidental firing.


The 510 connection is a type of threading which connects the atomizer and mod, usually built into the top cap of a tube mod or on the top of a mechanical box.


On the top of a mechanical mod, you can find an atomizer. It has the male end of the 510 while the mod has the female one. There are positive pins inside of the atomizer and the mod's 510 threading, which connect each other to deliver the power.


Advantages of Mechanical Mods 
The mechanical mods are popular with seasoned vapers as they have tons of advantages.


First of all, they are simple and easy to use. All you have to do is just insert a freshly-charged battery, screw on the button and let your coils saturate with e-juice. There are no settings that you can fiddle with, no LCD screens, and no flashing lights.


Secondly, they are rugged and sturdy. As there are no fragile computer chips and circuitry boards in a mechanical mod, you needn't worry about your mech mod even when you drop it from the second floor balcony.


Thirdly, the maintenance cost of mechanical mods is low. Your mech mods can work perfectly for years as long as you keep your mechanical mods clean inside.


Finally, they offer a stronger hit compared with other vape devices. Since there is no regulator in the mechanical mod, when you press the fire button, the full voltage of the battery is sent through the atomizer, producing a dense, flavorful and really warm cloud. 


How to use mechanical mods safely? 
Unlike variable wattage mods, which have tons of safety features such as low-voltage protection, low resistance protection, overheating protection, and so on, mechanical mods, however, they have little to no protective features, which is why they need to be used with great care. Therefore, when using mechanical mods, you need to be very diligent. 


First of all, you need to pay attention to the temperature of the battery. If you think they are a little too hot, then you need to take them out to let them cool down before using them again.


When you use a mechanical mod, it is impossible to know the resistance of your coils or how much energy is left in your batteries, so you'll need to use a multi-meter to test out your coils before screwing on the atomizer. 


You also need to pay attention to any drop in voltage. The longer you use a mechanical mod, the weaker it becomes. Because there is no regulating chip in a mech mod, the amount of amperes the atomizer receives depends on the amount of energy left in the battery. So if the battery is less than half full, you'd better charge it.


Last but not least, mechanical mods will not shut off in case of a shortage because, as I have mentioned above, they have little to no safety precautions, so you need to check for shorts before vaping and make sure the proper battery is being used and that it is not damaged in any way.

Top 10 Tips for Vaping Safely
While millions of vapers around the world have experienced thousands of safe vape devices every day, reports of house fires and explosions caused by faulty devices continue to plague the vape industry. So we've put these tips together to help you understand how to use vape devices properly and enjoy your vaping.


Tip 1.  Use an external battery charger
Many vape mods compatible with 18650, 20700, 21700 battery can be charged directly via a USB port. However, we strongly recommend that vapers should use an external battery charger to recharge the battery, which is safer and can also extend the life of the battery and mod. In addition, do not use damaged or improperly wrapped batteries with vape mods.


Tip 2. Charge your device with the charger provided by the manufacturer. 
Many vapers have a large number of vape devices, and when one of their vape devices need to be charged, they just charge it with any charger they have laying around. However, to make sure you have a safe vape experience, you'd better stick with your manufacturer’s charger that comes with the device, which will ensure that your charger is compatible with the vape battery.


Tip 3. Be careful with the battery you use. 
Lithium-ion batteries are the king of the vape battery market, and many vape devices and kits come with powerful lithium-ion batteries. However, there are still some average and mediocre ones available on the market. Therefore, in order to avoid using cheap batteries that increase the likelihood of having problems, you'd better do your own research and read the comments and reviews about the batteries that you want to use.


Tip 4. Don't overcharge your battery. 
Overcharging will bring a lot of negative effects to the battery, one of which is the stress on the battery. The undue stress will cause the battery to overheat. When your batteries start to overheat, they will start swelling. If this continues for too long, thermal runaway could cause an explosion.


Tip 5. Consider a regulated mod instead of a mech mod. 
Many kinds of vape devices can be found on the market. Compared with other vape devices, such as the mech mods, regulated mods perform much better when it comes to security performance. So if you are a beginner or don't have much knowledge about mech mods, we advise you to use regulated mods such as VV/VW mod for your safety.


Tip 6. Handle your e-liquid with care. 
Because of the chemical composition of the e-juices, it can be dangerous if they are not handled properly. Nicotine can be found in some e-juices, which is actually classified as a poison that can result in dangerous situations if not handled or stored in a proper way. So be careful when you use your e-juice and make sure it does not seep into your finger skin. Also, store it at the right temperature and in the right place to avoid direct sunlight.


Tip 7. Clean your battery terminal regularly. 
Many vapers do not realized the importance of cleaning their battery terminals. Actually, after long term use, a layer of dust and debris can form between your battery and device. If it is cleaned regularly, the performance of your vape device can be improved greatly. So remember to clean your battery terminal regularly. 


Tip 8. Buy your vape devices from a reputable supplier. 
Many vape product suppliers can be found both online and offline, but only those that enjoy a good reputation can provide you with high quality vape products to ensure your safety. So in order to avoid buying counterfeit and shady vape products, which are detrimental to your health, do your research carefully. At BuyBest, we guarantee that every product is genuine and enjoy the quality guarantees our suppliers, so you don't have to worry about the quality problem. 


Tip 9. Don't ignore instructions. 
When you get your new vape device, don't vape with it immediately. For your safety, you need to read the instructions carefully and figure out how it works. If not, you may encounter many problems when using it, some of which will bring harm to your safety. So do not ignore the instructions of your vape devices. 


Tip 10. Use the lock on your vape device. 
Almost all vape devices are equipped with a lock to prevent them from firing accidentally. So when you want to put your vape device in your pocket and carry it around, for your safety, please make sure you use the lock. Some careless vapers failed to do so and fired the vape device on as they worked, which lead to serious burns because of the heat from the atomizer.
