It’s common knowledge that vaping has taken the world by storm as a popular alternative to smoking. It’s hard to go in public without seeing several people with vapes. What you may not know is that the technological aspect of vaping is actually pretty interesting.

Of course, if you’re reading this article, you might be well aware of that fact. Which is why you’re interested in learning how to build your own vape mod.

Before you jump into the process, there are some things you should know. Keep reading for a brief overview of some key facts.

Battery Selection

A battery is the foundational element of any vape mod. Depending on what direction you choose to go here, it will shape the rest of your building process.

On one hand, there’s the visual angle to consider. You can get batteries in many different shapes, styles, and colors. What you choose will be determined by your personal preference.

After that, you have to consider output. While a higher power battery can help you blow bigger clouds, it’s important to keep an eye on safety. Your best bet is settling with a happy medium and no going overboard.

It’s also best to get a battery that allows you to digitally adjust the power. If you want some more information on battery safety, click that link.

Tank Size

This one is a simple choice and relies solely on your preference. The traits of bigger and smaller tanks are pretty self-explanatory, but we’ll still run over them briefly.

With larger tanks, you can hold more liquid. The main advantage here is in capacity. You can make a single tank last a whole day and not worry about having to refill it.

On the other hand, a smaller tank will require more frequent refills. The upsides are a less bulky design and the ability to change out flavors more often.

Other than that, there’s not much to know. Weight the pros and cons and decide what’s right for you.


When it comes to atomizers, the main thing you need to concern yourself with is the Ohm resistance of the coils. The atomizer and coils are responsible for heating your e-liquid and converting into vapor. For a more in-depth explanation of that, follow the link in the battery section of this article.

For our purposes, we’ll cover the traits of higher Ohm and lower Ohm coils. Higher Ohm coils produce less heat, which means they also produce less vapor. The advantages are that it drains your battery less and uses less liquid.

Conversely, lower Ohm coils allow you to produce much bigger clouds. While this is desirable for some folks, they also consume considerably more battery power and liquids. They can also be potentially dangerous for a less experienced user, which is covered in the article we referenced above.
