Awesome and Cheap Vape Mods for Your Budget

Intro - Why cheap vape mods?



Let’s face it, you wanna vape. You need a good mod, but you also need money leftover for juice, coils, and other accessories. Perhaps you are upgrading from a vape pen or pod mod, and you don’t need anything too crazy. You see a cheap vape mod online and wonder, is it even worth it?

Let’s take a look at cheap vape mods and see how they compare to more expensive ones. But first, let’s ask ourselves, why would we buy a cheap vape mod?

Beater mod/daily driver


Even if you own a Rolls Royce, you are not going take it out everywhere you go. The beater mod is essentially the vaping equivalent of a hoop-dee. It will get you from point A to point B, but it isn’t going to get that double-take that you might get when using an exotic stabwood box mod.

If you are the type of person that loses stuff all the time, a beater mod is a beautiful thing to own. Something durable enough to survive the roughest days. These mods are not disposable, but for the price they are cheap enough to be replaced. That is the beauty of cheap vape mods.

You need a beater mod as your daily driver. It doesn’t need to be the best mod ever, just something that can provide enough power to your coils and is durable enough to get you through the day, everyday.

Backup mod


You are gonna need a backup mod, one that you throw in your bag or desk at work just in case. You never want to get stuck without a working vape, especially if you are new to vaping because chances are you will find yourself reverting back to your old ways and buying a pack of smokes.

You can also hold on to an extra mod to lend to your smoker friends. You don’t need a DNA chip to quit cigarettes, a cheap vape mod will also do the trick. This isn’t all about being fancy all the time, this is about a healthier alternative to cigarettes. A cheap vape mod will still do the job.

Let’s say you just recently started vaping, instead of smoking cigarettes. Admit it, you got cloud envy. You see these guys and gals blowing massive white plumes of vapor and you want to get in on the fun, but don’t want to invest your life savings on an expensive vape mod.

A cheap vape mod would be the perfect step up from an all-in-one vape pen or pod mod. Box mods used to be way more expensive and didn’t even reach the type of wattage that we have now. For around $50 you can get yourself a battery that will give you hours of cloud-blowing fun.

Cheap vape mods are a great way for somebody to transition from a vape pen, e-cigarette or pod mod.

How are these mods so cheap?

Back in the day... (aka 5 years ago)

Less than five years ago, the most advanced mod, such as the Provari would cost over $200 and wasn’t able to go much higher than 20 watts. Today we can buy an iStick 100W for less than half the price! Not to mention it probably comes with way more features than the Provari.

Made in China

Due to the increase in demand and sales, prices have been getting lower and lower. Many of these mods are made in Chinese factories where production costs are way cheaper than in the United States so that is why we have been seeing so many mods that are super cheap.
