Top 10 Mechanical Box Mods
for October 2022

Mechanical mods are, hands-down, the best type of mod for vaping. They're like regular mods, except they use a tube-like design instead of a box. They're also more powerful. Mechanical mods have an adjustable wattage, which means you can adjust the power level according to the vape juice you're using. They're also designed to use your own coils, which means they're much more customizable than box mods.

Mechanical mods are also more durable than box mods. While most box mods break after just a few uses, mechanical mods can last for years. Additionally, mechanical mods are easy to use. Just screw in your desired atomizer, set the wattage, and you're good to go.

Our mechanical mod experts test mechanical mods for durability, safety, performance, ease of use, and temperature control. We evaluate factors like ease of use, safety and performance, such as how long the battery lasts and how long the mod operates. We also look at temperature control, including how accurate the temperature output is and whether the mod can accurately regulate temperature. Here are our picks for the top 10 mechanical mods of 2022:
