1 – Yihi SX Mini G Class
Taking over 14 percent of the vote in our poll to earn it the title of best box mod within the VV/VW class, the Yihi SX Mini G Class is a 200W box mod with temperature control functionality from 212 to 572 °F (firing at between 5 and 200W), and a compact, ergonomic design.
The appeal of the device is much the same as that of the IPV D2, offering a full-featured vape mod in a slim design put together with comfortable operation in mind. The SX Mini G Class features a hexagon shaped firing button, making it easy to press regardless of how you hold the device, and the adjustment button – located below the display screen – is recessed to help prevent accidental presses. The result is an aesthetically-pleasing mod that is intuitive to operate.
The SX Mini G Class takes two 18650 batteries (sold separately), accessed through a coin-slot screw point on the bottom of the device. It comes with the standard array of safety features for regulated ecig mods, and you can also charge your battery through the included micro-USB connection, with the option of passthrough vaping (so you can use it while charging).
The mod will fire any coils down to 0.15 ohms in wattage mode and down to 0.05 ohms in temperature-control mode, working with pretty much any atomizer on the market when combined with the brass, spring-loaded 510 connection. Finally, there are four output modes to give you more options for customizing your vaping experience.
The Yihi SX Mini G Class is fairly expensive, though, coming in at $219.95, but for the best vape mod on the market, as voted by vapers, it’s worth spending a little more to pick it up.
2 – Halo Reactor Mega
Halo’s Reactor Mega is a beast of a mod. While it doesn’t pack quite as much power as many of the other best box mods on this list, it’s in-built 5,000 mAh battery means it can keep you vaping for longer between charges than most of the competition. Halo may be most well-known for their e-liquids, but the Reactor Mega is a reminder that they can make some seriously competitive devices too.
The Reactor Mega can provide a maximum of 80W of power. With other entries on this list of the best vaping mods going beyond 200W, this might not seem like enough, but realistically most vapers don’t go beyond this in day-to-day use. It might not be the perfect mod for a cloud competition, but for everyday vaping the power output combined with the impressive battery life is a winning combination. It also offers TC with nickel (Ni200), titanium and stainless steel coils to help you avoid dry hits.
The Reactor Mega comes in a kit with the Reactor tank, a 5 ml capacity, top-filling sub ohm tank that comes with two 0.15 ohm Ni200 coils and one 0.5 ohms dual vertical coil offering. Combined, they offer great performance and a very dependable setup all-round. You can pick up the Reactor Mega for just $75.
3 – SMOK Mag Baby

Small in stature but capable of fierce performance, this conveniently sized hand-held vape mod is the picture of ergonomic perfection. Shaped for comfort, it fits easily in your hand and offers a crisp trigger action that helps you get the perfect pull every time.
On the technological side, all of its functions are easily navigated on a large OLED screen and the 1600mAh battery provides plenty of juice. With a maximum output of 50w, it works seamlessly with the hard-hitting Baby Prince vape tank, which is included along with 2 replacement coils and an extra glass tube in this kit. Built-in venting holes prevent overheating while the Cobra drip tip adds an additional flourish of style and a powerful draw.
Whether you are an experienced vaper or looking for your first vaping mod, the compact and stylish SMOK MAG Baby Kit is a perfect fit. Available at just $59.99 from Vapor4Life, it is a great value.
4 – SMOK GX350 TC
The SMOK brand has become a leading force within the vaping market, and it continues to show with products like the new SMOK GX350 vape kit. This highly advanced powerhouse of a vaporizer, which received a fair number of votes in our best ecig mod poll, utilizes SMOK’s latest generation chipset, an ultra slim chassis, yet maintains the capability of housing four high amperages 18650 batteries for an incredible vaping experience that you’ll enjoy time after time.
This kit combines the SMOK GX350 mod and the beloved TFV8 Cloud Beast sub-ohm tank. The GX350 mod boasts an ultra-slim chassis with a tridimensional polygon design that fits nicely in the palm. It has the capability of holding up to four 18650 batteries and conceals them with a locking bottom battery access door. To match its battery capacity, the SMOK GX350 box mod utilizes SMOK’s latest generation chipset that allows you to take power to new heights as it offers up to 350 watts of pure power. Much like with most modern devices of today, the GX350 also features a full temperature control suite that delivers great range and supports various heating elements.
The TFV8 tank is no stranger to many, as it’s one of the best performing and most sold tanks on the market. It starts by offering a 24.5mm diameter upon a stainless steel and glass construction. It sports features like a 6mL e-liquid capacity, a hinge and lock top fill system, an 8.5mm Delrin drip tip, and dual adjustable airflow control. What makes this power hungry tank tick is the use of the SMOK Turbo Coil Family that it uses, allowing you to take advantage of an octuple coil up to 260 watts and a quadruple coil up to 180 watts. If you’re power hungry, there are no limits with this beast.
5 – Innokin Proton 235 W
The Proton from Innokin is one of the best box mod devices on the market thanks to its solid power output, the excellent battery life from the dual battery design and a pretty cool display screen. It has tons of features and a really user-friendly interface, and the 235 W maximum power output is more than enough for pretty much any vaper.
The thing that stands out immediately about the mod is the TFT color display screen, which looks awesome and gives you a clear, at-a-glance indication of everything you need to know when you’re vaping. It has a firing bar rather than a button, and the usual two adjustment buttons are replaced with a pretty ingenious joystick-style button below the display. This makes it really easy to use even if you’re new to vaping.
The high power output is a must for most serious mods these days, and 235 W is more than enough for the vast majority of vapers. It should go without saying that it supports temperature control vaping with all common TC coil materials, and it’s really easy to adjust your ramp-up wattage or the TCR that controls how TC mode responds. In short, the device ticks all of the boxes for most vapers and looks cool doing it.
The Proton comes in a kit with the Scion 2 tank and includes a mesh coil as well as a standard option pre-installed to boost the performance. It comes with a 3.5 ml capacity as standard but also includes an alternative glass section so you can increase it to 5 ml if needed. It has a top-filling design and adjustable airflow so it’s a good match for most vapers’ needs.
Overall the Proton is a great mod, and for $69.95 it’s one of the best deals on the market at the minute.
6 – Vaporesso Revenger 220W
Introducing the latest addition to the market comes the new Vaporesso Revenger 220W TC starter kit. This new Vaporesso flagship shares an incredible experience starting from its looks and ending with its performance. The Revenger earns a spot as one of the best e-cig mods for this great beginner vape kit.
The Vaporesso Revenger kit is the combination of the Revenger 220W mod that’s powered by the OMNI Board 2.0 chipset and the NRG sub-ohm tank. These two meshes together to create a stunning appearance and great performance. The Revenger is designed with an aluminum chassis and in-mold labeling injection coating, while also featuring a four-button control and a 0.96 inch OLED display. This e-cig mod has the capability of holding dual 18650 batteries and can be accessed via the magnetized battery bay cover. As you would expect, a micro-USB port comes equipped, and it allows for future firmware upgrades and a 2.5A quick charge system, which is lightning fast compared to most mods currently on the market.
Along with a whole slew of safety features, the Revenger is also capable of delivering a 220-watt output and six total output modes. Enjoy modes like its smart VW mode that will automatically recommend an ideal output, its customized curve of wattage that gives you the ability to customize the wattage output by second increments, a bypass mode that allows you to charge and vape, and a temperature control mode that allows you to take advantage of Ni200 Nickel, Titanium, SS316, and TCR.
The new NRG sub-ohm tank, on the other hand, sports a 26.5mm diameter, a slide-to-fill top fill system, a large 5mL e-juice capacity, and dual adjustable bottom airflow. Another vital feature of this tank is its 14mm bore Delrin mesh drip tip that was designed to prevent spit back. Lastly, the GT Coil Family is utilized, which features dual and quadruple vertical coils, letting you reach up to 110 watts.
You can pick up the Vaporesso Revenger in a kit with the sub tank for just $69.95, making it one of the best box mods for vapers on a budget.
7 – Eleaf iStick Pico S 100 W
The original iStick Pico did a great job of balancing portability with capability, but the updated Pico S 100 W takes seventh place in this best ecig mod list for VV/VW devices. It keeps all of the appeals of the original device, but takes 21700 batteries, improves the design and boosts the maximum power output compared to the original device, while not sacrificing the compact nature of the mod.
The Pico S 100 W TC comes with the Eleaf Ello Vate tank, which is a 28 mm diameter, 6 ml capacity tank that ships with 0.15 and 0.2-ohm atomizer heads. Without the tank, the Pico S is still pretty compact, measuring just 3 and 1/8 by 2 by 1 inch, and while the tank adds to the height of the mod, it’s still up there with the most compact devices on the market.
The mod itself looks a lot like the original version, just with a stylish new design and an upgraded front panel. The OLED display screen is clear and well-presented, and it has an improved and responsive fire button positioned above it, as well as a customizable LED light below. The device takes 21700 batteries, but it does include a sleeve for compatibility with 18650 batteries if you prefer. The device can put out up to 100 W in VW mode, supports temperature control vaping with all common TC coil materials, and also works in bypass mode.
The Ello Vate tank, one of many popular sub ohm tanks on the market, has a big part to play in the performance you’ll get from the device. Thanks to the HW series coils that boost flavor and vapor, it does a great job. The 6 ml capacity of the tank is pretty substantial, and it has a convex glass section to make room for the extra e-juice. It has a top-filling design and triple airflow slots, as well as a wide bore drip tip that makes it great for cloud-chasers.
Overall, the iStick Pico S 100 W is a solid mod, balancing portability and user-friendliness with excellent performance, and for a price of $77.95 it’s pretty hard to fault.
8 – Innokin BigBox Atlas
Taking the spot of eighth best vape mod on the market is Innokin’s BigBox Atlas, a device that blends powerhouse performance with an eye-catching and cool design. It’s a chunky, dual 18650 box mod, but it packs a substantial punch with a 200 W maximum output and has plenty more to offer thanks to fully-stocked temperature control functionality and the Aethon chipset powering the whole thing.
The most striking thing about the BigBox Atlas is undoubtedly the design, with a resin body sporting an impressive honeycomb design, and the whole thing comes with an 810 (wide-bore) drip tip with a similar style too. Below the surface-level, though, the mod is still an impressive offering. Along with the huge 200 W maximum power output, it features TC vaping with nickel, titanium and stainless steel coils, meaning you can pretty much vape any way you want with the device. It has the same menu system as most recent Innokin devices, but it’s undeniably easy to navigate as long as you’ve used a mod before. From the magnetized battery door to the 24k gold spring-loaded 510 connection, they’ve taken a lot of care over every aspect of the design, and it shows.
The BigBox Atlas costs $69.95 new. While it might not be the cheapest vape mod you could pick up, it’s definitely one to consider if you want your device to turn heads.
9 – VooPoo Drag 2
The VooPoo Drag 2 picks up where the original left off, dropping the angular edges of the original and making the package more compact and portable, while still maintaining the exceptional performance. It’s a dual 18650 mod, with a rugged-yet-cool look and a simple layout in terms of buttons and displays; it looks formidable but also user-friendly. It runs on the Gene Fit chip, which takes the speed and responsiveness that made vapers love the original Gene chip and makes it even quicker, more efficient and safer.
The device supports wattage-based vaping up to a massive 177 W and TC vaping, working with coils as low as 0.05 ohms in either mode and supporting titanium, nickel, and stainless steel, so all types of TC coil. It also allows you to adjust the TCR so you can perfectly tailor the device’s performance to suit your preferences. All of this is housed within sturdy zinc alloy chassis, with a magnetic battery door and simple layout all around.
The vape mod comes in a kit with the 3.5 ml capacity Uforce T2 sub ohm tank, which comes with 0.4 and 0.2-ohm coils, a spare (larger-capacity) glass tube and some parts. You also get a USB charging cable when you pick up the kit. It costs $79.95 from DirectVapor.
