So which are the best box mods in the various wattage classes?

This is an area of vaping devices that is on the serious rise, as vapers are moving to 30, 50 and 100 watt machines.

What is it about a box-shaped e cig that has so many vapers excited, willing to pay $100 or more dollars (even more than $200) for a device with no battery or tank? Why are they turning heads in spite of the beautiful tube mods out there?

Box mods are exciting because they are generally variable wattage devices; at least, that is what consumers are usually talking about. In their eyes, a box mod almost automatically features a 20 watt maximum or better, sub-ohm capacity, and a smart chip. As for the “box” style, that’s flexible. Some are boxier than others.

5 Great E-Juice Brands

Over a hundred US-made e juice brands are available; maybe more like a thousand. That’s how it seems, but while getting things in proportion you can really tell the difference between some of the better brands and their lesser competition. It’s all about flavor and quality, things that stand out to advantage when you taste the flavors of the following five flavors of e juice.

Vaporfi E Liquid

What is it about Vaporfi that gets them noticed? They were not the first company to encourage consumers’ creativity with e juice but they advertise this aspect of the business more and also carry a small selection of pre-made flavors.

As a result, customers really have to consider blending their own if they want to branch out and they have done so. The menu grows slowly and contains many exotic mixtures.

The best thing about this company is their standards. They only incorporate USP ingredients, non-allergenic vegetable glycerin from Malaysia, and their formulae are registered with the FDA. They mix juices and bottle them in an FDA lab.

While e cig users are often considered non-conformists, Vaporfi was proactive about complying with upcoming FDA announcements in order to help legitimize the industry. You can’t say they weren’t using their noggins at Vaporfi. Their juice contains up to 24 mg of nicotine and costs $15.99 per 30 ml. The Reserve series is thick enough for sub-ohm vaping.


Halo Purity and V-Type

The Purity series at Halo has always put an emphasis on the same quality ingredients Vaporfi insists on such as FEMA/GRAS-approved flavorings mixed with USP bases at an approved lab. They also focus on tobacco: traditional American, historical, and exotic forms of it. There is Cavendish, Turkish, dry, sweet, strong, and earthy tobacco. Add a few menthol styles and some of their more dessert-type offerings and the list is still mostly about tobacco.

Halo Eliquids

Their e juice is so good, however, that Halo Purity stands next to expensive bottles from Five Pawns and the Standard and holds its own in the vaping market place despite being more affordable ($5.99 per 7 ml). Halo recently released V-Type e juice too with more vegetable glycerin for sub-ohm vaping.


Space Jam

All of the flavors at Space Jam are space-themed, like Astro apple/strawberry and Starship One vanilla custard/kiwi.

Space Jam Juice

They have developed a reputation for honing in on a few excellent varieties their customers love and slowly developing new types when the creative urge hits. A 30-ml bottle costs $21.99, so this isn’t the cheapest e juice around, but flavors are bottled in glass so nothing affects the flavor of juice left to steep on a shelf.


Cosmic Fog

Like Space Jam, this is another gourmet e juice and the two companies started in California where e juice seems to run in people’s veins.

Cosmic Fog Juice

Their excellent and popular flavors include Church (like an ice cream sundae) and Cola Gummy (no explanation needed) and they cost about $12 per 15-ml glass bottle. At Space Jam and Cosmic Fog, attention is paid to carefully contriving flavors which seem, on second thought, to blend naturally. You should notice individual notes yet wonder why no one ever thought of these combinations before.


Charlie Noble

The people at Vape Dojo invented a high-vegetable glycerin e juice named for a nautical legend.

Charlies custard

Their list is impressively long and, like the others listed above, they use only the best ingredients. Their series now include Admiral’s Reserve, Yogurt, and their original selection. Experience a mixture of banana, cream, caramel, and vanilla in Sollers Pointe tobacco e juice.

Try a breakfast cereal vape with Treasure Island 2. Explore Chocolate Mousse, Fruit on the Bottom, or Smoked Yogurt. A 30-ml bottle is $13.99 in this series; $6.99 buys 15 ml of the original line. From the Admiral’s Reserve select Pistachio RY4 or Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream priced $15.99 for 30 ml. It’s all delectable and affordable.

Innokin iTaste MVP V2.0 – 11 watts – $33**

Innokin iTaste MVP V2.0A box mod does not have to provide excess power and cloud-chasing capacity to be worth your money.

Note: This price offered by Mount Baker Vapor is a KILLER DEAL btw (usually this is $60, which is still a decent price).

This is one of the most loved, original box style mods, and they are price slashing since newer models have come out. If you are getting your first box mod, this is a great one!

Innokin makes excellent box mods like the MVP which is not capable of high-watt, low-ohm use but is a power bank, a sleek and slim machine, and much cheaper than some of the other boxes listed. Those new to VW items should start with Innokin.

This is 510 threaded and has a nice price point

This is a very well known, popular box mod.

It features variable wattage adjustment from 6-11 watts and voltage can be adjusted from 3.3 to 5.0 volts.

Sub-ohm Tanks and RBAs

Sub ohm tanks were developed to satisfy the growing number of VW mod users around the world. Most have been designed and manufactured in China along with compatible hardware.

When manufacturers started releasing box mods and variable watt APVs, they knew the usual selection of e cig tanks would not be suitable for them. Even excellent clearomizers such as the ViVi Nova and Nautilus are not equal to sub-ohms.

The Aerotank provides adjustable airflow, but not a rebuildable deck. Their coils were not built to handle sub ohms. Atomizer heads were replaceable but not rebuildable. Consumers would have had to switch to dripping atomizers or RBAs, leaving their comfortable and user-friendly tanks behind, unless manufacturers designed new types of tanks. Now there are almost as many sub ohm tanks as there are variable watt mods.

Best Brands

You will notice the top manufacturers include makers of your favorite APVs: JoyeTech, Innokin, Eleaf, Kanger, Smok, and Aspire. I haven’t mentioned every possible sub ohm tank below but this is a good starting point. When you realize how many options there are, it becomes clear that high-watt mods are here to stay.

Major brands make them: . Tank-style RBAs fit into this category, so think of those too when you are browsing. They include authentic limited-edition RBAs and clones. The following is my top 5 list.

Vaporfi Volt Hybrid Tank With 30ml E-Juice $52.79**

Vaporfi Volt Hybrid Sub Ohm Tank With Free 30ml E-Juice

This is a sub-ohm tank launched by Vaporfi to go with high powered mods like their VOX II.

It is a beautiful sub-ohm tank, and comes with two atomizer choices, one of them rebuildable for DIYers, and the others are ready to go.

This kit includes 20 wicks of organic Japanese cotton for the RBA, and a pyrex glass tube.

Aspire Triton 2 – $34.95

Triton 2

This is the latest Sub Ohm tank released by Aspire, who is one of the most masterful crafters if amazing vape tanks.

They have just improved on their already amazing products, to help make your vaping experience as perfect as possible.

A top fill feature was added, and it comes with adjustable airflow to fine tune your vapor hits.

It also has a nice 3ml capacity so you won’t need to refill this beauty quite as much.





Aspire Atlantis 2.0 – $29.95

Aspire Atlantis 2 BVC Sub-Ohm Vape Tank


The Nautilus by Aspire is among the top-rated, best-selling tanks available, and their new Atlantis 2 is very popular as well.

Their Atlantis sub-ohm tank matches the Nautilus for quality. It’s a BVC tank: vertical bottom coil.

With this style of coil, you combine great flavor and vapor with longevity. Coils provide 0.3-ohm resistance or 0.5 ohms.

The maximum wattage suggested for this tank is 50W: that’s enough for a Smok XPro M50, the Kanger KBox, Eleaf iStick (10, 20, or 50W), and others. Aspire’s Atlantis tank was the first sub-ohm glassomizer available.

The new V 2.0 has improvements over V1, such as a 3ml capacity and improved adjustable airflow.






Horizon Tech Arctic – $19.95

Horizon Arctic Tanks

With the Arctic, your vape can be the Sigelei 100W, iStick 50W, the SMY 60W or MVP Pro, among many others. It was made for 10W to 100W mods and handles 0.2 ohms (or 0.5 ohms with the pre-built coil head).

This Pyrex tank uses US Kanthal wire, organic cotton and, of course, offers adjustable airflow. Like SMOK, Horizon Tech packages their Arctic sub ohm tank with two mouthpieces: one glass and one stainless steel.





ELeaf Lemo II – $29.99

Eleaf Lemo 2

Version two of the Lemo contains a high-tech PEEK insulator situated around the rebuildable atomizer head. This was placed there to insulate and provide corrosion resistance. With 3.8-ml capacity, you can fill up on highly viscous e juice and fire your atomizer to a low of 0.3 ohms. A unique top-fill feature creates a mess-free experience. Another special piece is a cover for the atomizer head. This is to protect it from e juice when filling the atomizer so you don’t have to undo the cap.






Kanger Subtank Plus – $28.50

mfs kanger subtank plus

No sooner did Kanger release this tank than they upgraded it and changed the name. Look for the word “plus” and you are buying their latest version. It was designed for use with the Kanger KBox 40W mod, but has also become a favorite among users of other mods like the iPV and iStick series.

The Subtank Plus combines Pyrex and 304 Stainless Steel to provide a hybrid tank. By this I mean that it can be used as a tank with pre-built coils or as a DIY tank with a rebuildable deck.

Your tank comes with 0.5-ohm and 1.2-ohm builds choices plus an extra Pyrex tube in case you break yours by over-tightening screws on the top and bottom caps. Airflow is adjustable so that you can optimize inhalation resistance.

Smok RSBT Hybrid – $16.57**

Smok RSBT Hybrid

Any chance they get, Smok develops a new atomizer; a re-boot of one of their earlier styles or something to match a new Smok vaporizer. The Smok RSBT is a perfect complement to the XPro series or their Bluetooth VW mods. It holds 4 ml of liquid inside a Pyrex tank which is easy to rebuild. Adjust airflow to your preferred level.

Dome RBA – $29.00

dome rba clone

This list was in no particular order, so this isn’t the 5th best; just another choice. The Dome is a clone of the Atmomixani and an RBA, but with a tank.

You have the option to use glass or a stainless steel tank, but I would go with glass for optimum purity of flavor and to see your e liquid level.

It’s a bottom-feed tank with a silver plated contact, 4 posts, and 4 wick holes plus 3 vent holes. Infinite made a copy which provides airflow control and temperature variability.





The JoyeTech Delta II – $24.99

JoyeTech Delta II

Joye’s new tank is rated for 20W to 45W devices, comes in silver or black, and features three slim vertical viewing windows above an airflow control panel. It was designed to complement their latest version of the eVic.

Inside this 22-mm, 3.5-ml stainless steel tank, you will place one of two compatible atomizer heads. One is a rebuildable deck. The other is called an LVC: liquid valve control head. The latter item contains a dial which allows you to adjust the flow of e liquid.






Innokin iSub – $15.30**

Innokin iSub

Innokin recently released the MVP 3.0 Pro 60W, big brother to their iTaste MVP 3.0 30W mod. While an iClear 30 would fit nicely on the smaller device, a bigger tank was needed for higher wattage and lower ohms.

The iSub contains a 0.5-ohm Vertical Deep Coil build (VDC). Airflow is adjustable on this 4-ml vessel, as usual.

It’s unusual for a sub ohm tank not to possess this feature. Instead of glass, Innokin uses the more durable German polycarbonate, but they also utilize Japanese organic cotton, the cleanest available.

Enjoy their No Spill Easy Swap system which makes replacing the coil a cinch. Using the latest and toughest polycarbonate, Innokin is able to offer their tank in clear, smoky, blue, or pink.

ELeaf Melo 2 – $23.95

MELO 2 Atomizer

ELeaf designed the Melo 2 just for their new TC iSticks, so it is built especially for Nickel and Titanium modes. One of the fantastic features of this compact tank (wider than those above by 0.3 mm but shorter by several millimeters) is its thick vertical coil. With a few inlet holes in the bottom, customers enjoy total control over airflow. Like most others in this article, the Melo uses organic cotton.





Kayfun Lite RBA 26650 – $14.86

26650 Kayfun RBA clone

In actual fact, I am looking at a clone of the Kayfun Lite RBA 26650 as I write this. You should always buy clones from reputable and established brands like HCigar, Infinite, and EHPro who do a good job with their copies and tend to maintain the highest level of quality.

Some of their tanks are as good as the originals and this could be one of them. The Kayfun Lite is a big tank made from stainless steel. Its size makes attaching it to an iStick 10 or 20W mod impractical. It is best connected with a 26650 mechanical mod or one of the large boxes.

How To Choose Box Vapes

There are box mods developed by e cig companies and box-style vaporizers. Each one features the same cube-like shape or something close to that.

In the e cig department the term “box mod” distinguishes vaping “pens” from bigger APVs like the Innokin iTaste MVP. This is what we’ve highlighted above as it is what most people think of when looking these up, e-liquid vap mods.

Vaporizer companies selling box mods are talking about tabletop devices that plug into a wall socket, and are typically for herbs. There are some portable box-shaped vaporizers, such as the Magic Flight vaporizer, pictured just below.

Magic Flight Launch BoxBox Vaporizers for Herbs

If you vaporize herbs rather than e-liquid, then your box mod is literally just a heating element inside of a cube or a shape like a cube wearing a hoodie. The back extends a little higher than the rest of the unit.

There are risks when buying this particular sort of vaporizer, namely the fact that they are so easy to make. Anyone with a bit of electronic aptitude can buy the parts, knock out a shape, and stick the heating chamber inside.

The danger is that wiring will not be properly connected. Materials will fail to resist high heat and will not be food-grade. Overheating materials of sub-standard quality will release toxic fumes into the vapor. Vaping is healthier than smoking, but not when this happens.

Moreover, these homemade box mods often don’t work or they only work for a short time. If you paid $40, got what seemed like a great deal, then wound up with a useless hunk of junk, you probably bought your vaporizer from a company with a PO Box that changed addresses as soon as they made a few bucks. Now you can’t find them to get your money back.

Always Buy from Reputable Dealers

Look on a website for authorization from a company to sell their box mods. This protects you from being left high and dry with a faulty machine.

You can make a claim against the warranty and have faulty pieces exchanged. Also, customer service is there to help you work out minor problems which might arise from simple errors made at your end.

Vape World is one the the most well known stores for herb vaporizers, and has a couple of box-shaped desktop units as well as the Magic Flight.

Box Vaporizers on the Market

The Easy Vape 5, Hot Box mods, and Vapor Brothers models have all achieved decent reputations. They are efficient, user-friendly, and often attractive. Hot Box mods are available in plain colors and prints and cost between $110 and $200. The Easy Vape 5 is popular. It features digital five-button controls, a ceramic heating element, and heats up quickly.

Vapor Brothers have been making devices since 1999 so their reputation has had time to steep. See what they’re up to by visiting a vaporizer supplier online.

Some Features of a  Desktop Box Vaporizer

If you have always wanted a hands-free vaporizer, this is your best bet. Box vaporizers often come with a ground glass system which means the connection between chamber and wand is secure. You really literally do not have to use your hands when vaping. That is convenient if you read and vape simultaneously.

These units often create thick vapor. They also come in two formats, like candle-style tabletop devices: digital or analog. Set the controls by turning a dial or pressing buttons. Temperature options range from about 200F to around 400F.

Look out for boxes with multiple tubes suitable for use by two or three people at the same time. Also check the length of tubing. A few are fitted with too-short vinyl tubing, a problem you can easily rectify without technical support.

Profile of a Box Vaporizer

Vaporite entered the market in 2005. Their latest model is a high quality, affordable 6th Element Box Mod shaped like a rectangular ham radio or old-fashioned VCR. Made of steel, it is coated black and pre-assembled. Use it right out of the box to vaporize oils and aromatic herbs by deploying a whip system which is assisted by forced air.

The dual digital temperature display is a nice touch and easy to read. 6th Element vaporizers are popular globally.

Pricing of Box Vaporizers

They are simple and straightforward to use, so it’s no wonder box vaporizers commonly sell for affordable prices. You can easily purchase a good one for less than $100. It won’t have the many features of a Volcano with automatic shut-off timer and a cooling coil, and it won’t work with a balloon, but for less than $100 you would have a mains-powered device working consistently and reliably for several years.
