The Joys of Building a Vape Mod

The Joys of Building a Vape Mod

If you’re new to vaping, congratulations and welcome to the vaping community. You may want to start building your own vape mod if you’re really looking to cut back on your nicotine use. We’d like to give you information on how you can build your very own vape mod and enhance the vaping experience. In this blog, you can find out what goes together and how you can use it to enhance your own vaping experience.

Getting The Right Combination Down

You can find out all about vape coils and vape tanks on previous blogs on Getting everything down to a science is part of what makes building a vape mod great. Like starting anything new, you’ll want to read the manual for your favorite vape mods to find out their compatibility with vape coils and vape tanks. For example, if you are a fan of GeekVape products, you can pair a GeekVape vape mod with a GeekVape vape coil and GeekVape vape tank. This will ensure consistency when you’re building your vape mod and will ensure that you have the best vaping experience possible.

DIY vapers tend to build their own coils, but you really should only do this if you have an understanding of the science that goes into vape mods. If you have a background in physics, such as knowing the science behind electric currents, you can really go wild with building vape coils for your favorite vape mods. 

It also helps to know the content of your favorite vape juice. If you’re looking to vape nicotine salts with that extra nicotine content, go for higher resistance vape coils. Looking to cut down on the nicotine intake and still enjoy your vaping experience? There are vape coils that are as low as 0.2ohm resistance, so you can build your vape mod with low resistance vape coils. Make sure your coils are compatible with your vape tank and vape mod, or it will negatively affect your vaping experience.

Generally, pod systems are for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vaping, which is good for nicotine salts. If you’re new to vaping and not yet ready to cut back on your nicotine use, nicotine salts generally contain anywhere from 20mg to 50mg of nicotine. Pod systems also offer higher resistance coils as we previously mentioned which are ideal for vaping nicotine salts. 

If you’re using a box mod with a tank and a coil, you can go either way with nicotine salts or regular vape juices. Just make sure to read the instructions of your device to ensure you don’t burn coils out too quickly. No one likes a dry hit either, and you want to make sure you have enough vape juice to last you until your next purchase.

How To Use Your Vape Mod


Your vape mod determines your vaping experience. Many vape mods today come with advanced features that will help you control the wattage and temperature, which directly affects your vaping experience. Want to get the most flavor and vapor? Crank up that wattage, but you’ll also be burning through vape coils faster. If your favorite vape juices are all-day vapes, lower the wattage to make sure your coils last longer. 

Using your vape mod shouldn’t be difficult if you follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer, but there are lots of factors to consider:


  1. What are you vaping? While fruit and dessert flavors are clear favorites among vapers, your experience may vary. Do you vape lots of different vape juices? Do you like traditional flavors such as tobacco and menthol? Some vape juices are labeled as all-day vapes (ADVs), which means you’ll be vaping more often as time goes along.
  2. What coils are you using? Vape coils below 1.0ohms will more likely be replaced more frequently, while those above 1.0ohms will last longer. Nicotine salts provide enough nicotine to satisfy vapers for longer periods of time, but those looking to reduce their nicotine intake will find themselves using their vape mods longer. (For more tips on how to reduce nicotine use, you can check out how to reduce your own nicotine use here.)
  3. While everyone who vapes is looking to reduce their nicotine use, you may need an entirely different setup, as previously mentioned, when you choose to start reducing your nicotine use. While most vape mods are flexible, you might want to change your vape tank and vape coil to reflect different vaping experiences, and adjust the settings on your vape mod to ensure you have the best vaping experience.


What Vape Mod Should I Use?


If you’re new to vaping, you should use pod systems as your vape mod. These don’t require a lot of assembly. Many pod systems, while tailored to nicotine salt vaping, also have pods that accommodate sub-ohm vaping. If you really want to have more control over your vaping experience, using a box mod will help you control factors such as wattage and temperature.


Remember, your vaping experience is yours and yours alone. Building a vape mod is part of the vaping experience as much as the actual act of vaping is part of the vaping experience.
