WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MOD AND A BOX?
Often declined or directly taken from English, the language of the vape is a world in itself! It’s not always easy to find your way around when you’re just starting…
The mod means modified. Very popular when the electronic cigarette was launched, this term made it possible to differentiate between classic electronic cigarettes, of the cigalike type, and more advanced electronic cigarettes.
It must indeed be understood that at the origin of the electronic cigarette, the major players in the sector produced basic vaporizers which left no room for any possible customization. Enthusiasts, craftsmen at heart, then seized the electronic cigarette object to make changes that they considered essential.
Some devoted themselves to what is now commonly called “mechanical mods”. Without electronics and purely mechanical, these mods, reserved mainly for experienced vapers, still allow you to enjoy a raw, authentic and direct vape, without any smoothing carried out by electronic chips. Very popular, mechanical mods are often produced in smaller quantities by real craftsmen and constitute splendid collector’s items, often guaranteed for life.
Other enthusiasts, on the contrary, wanted to improve the electronic components of traditional electronic cigarettes. This is how the possibility of varying the power delivered appeared, as did new modes (temperature control in particular). Each of these inventions has made it possible to advance the basic electronic cigarette and we can now say that mods have been at the origin of the revolution that we have been witnessing for several years now.
Moreover, there are very few basic electronic cigarettes in themselves today. Although produced on a larger scale, mods are the very heart of the vape today.
We talk about ” box ” to evoke a mod that has the square or rectangular shape of a box. Quite simply! When we tell you that the vape is not very complicated!
