Mod Talk: Regulated vs Unregulated

Posted by

Advanced Vaping DevicesWe’ve covered a lot of different types of vapour devices in this space before, yet mods haven’t been a frequent topic of conversation. To be sure, mods represent a slightly smaller percentage of the overall vaping industry, but those who use them absolutely love them. We wouldn’t go as far as calling it a hobbyist device, but it certainly has a specific niche. Regardless, mods should be part of the conversation when we are talking about vaping and there is no time like now to put them front and center.

The first thing we should address here is what exactly is a mod. It’s not a term known to all, and certainly for those who are using cig-a-likes or 2-piece electronic cigarettes, it may seem like a completely alien term. Yet, it’s not all that different from what you are used to. A mod can simply be seen as a beefed-up version of what you are already used to seeing most people vape.

Yet, the definition of a mod itself has also seemed to change. Where the word mod might have made you think of a mechanical mod, or an unregulated mod, now there are a couple different ways to categorise it. This has broadened the category of products that can be called a mod and created a divide. Let’s take a look at the differences between regulated and unregulated mods, and what that could mean for a new or experienced vapour user.

Unregulated Mods

An unregulated mod is also known as a mechanical mod. As you might tell from the name, the idea is to take out as much electronics as you can. Why would you not want any electronic in your vaping device? Well, that’s a good question. Primarily one could say that the less electronics getting in the way, the more customisable it is. Essentially you are left with a battery and an atomizer here, with no circuit boards or anything. Press the button and it will mechanically activate the battery and allow you to vape.

Without electronics, you don’t have any restrictions. This means you can do things like house multiple batteries or use any type of atomiser and coil. That’s right, regardless of the coil’s resistance, the type of wire, or even if the atomiser has a short, an unregulated mod will still function.

People who swear by unregulated mods will say that they love the freedom to do whatever they want, without needing a “safety” so to speak. They can take their device to the extreme limits, and that could mean huge amounts of vapour and a very satisfying experience. The downside here is the fact that it can be dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing, in addition to it requiring more maintenance.

Regulated Mods

This category can be somewhat confusing, because regulated mods really encompass a whole number of devices. Essentially, they are still vapour devices that offer superior performance, but they include all of those electronics that unregulated mods eschew. That wider definition brings in variable power devices as well as fixed voltage. You can look to our V2 Pro Series as an example of a product that would fall into this category.

In essence, regulated mods aren’t really what used to be called mods at all. Those were always reserved for mechanical mods. But terminology evolves, so it is important to understand the differences when you go out to find your next vapour product.

Those who use regulated mods are typically after great performance, but they don’t want to use something that takes a lot of time and patience to understand. They’ll like the safeguards in place for these mods, as opposed to the wide-open (yet potentially dangerous) approach of unregulated mods. Maybe they’ll sacrifice some performance, but even that is debatable.

That’s the general concept between regulated and unregulated mods. It isn’t so much as a fight over which is better, but rather what fits into your lifestyle. For most people, they’ll start out with a more straightforward 2-piece system and perhaps graduate up to a regulated mod. But if you’re out for adventure and chasing that unique and perhaps, at times, better experience, the siren call of an unregulated or mechanical mod might get the better of you.

E Cigs: Why Make the Switch?

One of the most important issues to people across the globe is the state of their personal health. Yes, this is even ironically true for most, if not all, tobacco smokers. Though they understand the risks associated with tobacco smoking and the damage they are doing to their bodies, the fundamental health concerns are still there.

Fortunately, e cigarettes were introduced to the market several years ago. Though final conclusive research is yet to be released, we currently have a myriad of case studies showing the promising health benefits of e cigs compared to tobacco. In addition to world renowned doctors, government health bodies such as Public Health England have conducted their own tests on e cigarettes and the health effects connected with their usage.

In August 2015, PHE noted that, "In a nutshell, best estimates show e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful to your health than normal cigarettes, and when supported by a smoking cessation service, help most smokers to quit tobacco altogether."

But aside from being significantly less harmful to your health and helping smokers quit in a more successful manner than other smoking cessation devices, there are still numerous other benefits to e cigs over tobacco cigarettes. These benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • No tar in e cigs
  • Cheaper than tobacco cigarettes
  • Range of flavours to choose from
  • Enjoy e cigs in many areas where smoking is prohibited
  • No staining of the teeth
  • No foul odour

  • In addition to the above benefits, e cigs are far better for the environment. Combine all of this together, and it is no surprise that close to 3 million people in the UK alone have made the switch to e cigarettes.

    Though V2 Cigs services millions of happy customers across the globe, we still have some ways to go. With over 10 million tobacco smokers in the UK, we can help improve the health of millions of more lives. So if you haven’t yet made the switch or you have family and friends trying to kick the tobacco habit, put your trust in us to make it happen.
