The Best Mech Mods of 2016 list is here!

The mechanical mods will have none of that fluff!
We are putting you to the test to view the latest and greatest mechanical mod vapes and decide yourself and tell us which one you think is the best new mechanical mods.
It’s all metal and batteries here, but just in case you’re interested in finding a top notch vape mod, we have a guide for that as well!
If you’ve been part of Team Vapor for a little while now, you’ve probably seen those eye-catching yet decidedly low-tech mech mods gleaming in the hands of a shop employee or two and wondered what makes them so great.
What Makes Mechanical Mods So Great?
Appreciating the advantages of mechanical vape mods offers start with understanding what they are in the first place.
Mechanical Mods are a remarkably simple device essentially consisting of a battery, a connection point for an atomizer, and a firing switch that completes the electrical circuit.
This gets all wrapped in a metal tube of varying fanciness. It is the most simple of electrical circuits.
This simple design with no electronic components and minimal points of failure means unrivaled reliability and durability.
If something ever goes wrong with your vape mechanical mod, you know it’s one of a very short list of things…good luck divining the major malfunction of anything that depends on a circuit board once it’s in a bad mood.
For this reason, quality mech mods are treasured among their owners for their long life and near indestructibility with proper maintenance.
The user customization potential of mechanical mods also makes them a natural choice for those who like to experiment with builds and configurations.
Mech mods do not regulate the power of the battery, so they have no problem firing low-resistance coils and the voltage listed is what you get for vaping.
This unregulated battery setup also makes it easier to choose one that suits your usage level, as the life of the battery depends solely on its mAH rating.
Oh, and while we’re on the topic of regulation, an investment in a mechanical mod is one that might prove more valuable than usual if Big Tobacco gets its way.
The smoker stick cartel would love nothing better than to see the incomparably superior alternative to its products, known as vaping, relegated into obscurity with money and influence often on their side, it’s nice to know that batteries are unlikely to be banned any time soon.
