Does size matter when it comes to vaping? For several years, a vaping device's ability to deliver a consistently satisfying experience was largely determined by its size. Those large, heavy box mods are capable of fitting enormous batteries and lots of technological components that allow for advanced customization.
However, the vaping industry has radically changed over the last couple of years. Suddenly, compact, portable vaping systems are all the rage. Those who have been using box mods for a long time may be surprised to learn that many of these small vaping devices are just as capable of satisfying their needs.
In fact, every vaping component seems to be getting smaller. Even e-liquid bottles are sold in smaller quantities. With all that said, let’s take closer look at the newest changes in vaping technology so that you can understand why size for the most part, no longer matters as it once did.
Have you noticed that pod mods are everywhere? These slim, pocket-friendly vaping devices are becoming more and more popular as their technology continues to advance. If you've been vaping with a box mod for a while, you might struggle to believe that these small mods have what it takes to give you satisfying puffs that are full of vapor.
However, today's pod mods are amazingly advanced. Their ability to please on every level has a lot to do with the batteries that are built into them. Once upon a time, vaping devices required enormous lithium-ion batteries in order to deliver intense power. Now, however, hardware manufacturers have found a way to install high-capacity batteries into these devices that are unbelievably small.
Many of the current pod mods are loaded with advanced features that aren’t too different from the devices that come with conventional box mods. There are plenty of pod systems that allow you to adjust airflow, set wattage, explore temperature control settings, have an IP Rating (Waterproof, Water Resistant, Shockproof, and Dustproof), and experiment with various output modes.
It is not just pod mods though.
We have sub-ohm mods that can easily fit in the palm of your hand and offer most of the technological functionalities that the large mods have, while still being able to chase those huge clouds of vapor.
Not to mention, we even have wearable devices that can perform many of the functionalities that a typical mod can do, while also acting in a way as a Smart Watch would.
Tanks and Coils
Yes, a vast array of tank and coils being used are indeed getting smaller as well. However, that does not mean they are less effective.
A lot of vape tanks are designed to improve the e-juice by promoting huge vapor and smoother flavor; just holding less e-liquid than the standard tanks. Still, these tanks can be made from Pyrex and stainless-steel steel while also looking aesthetically pleasing. They even retain innovative features such as side or top filling, enhanced airflow, and have lock designs to help prevent leaks and spills.
Also, there are pod tanks, different from cartridges that can fit on both mods and pod systems that have many similarities to those of standard vape tanks out there.
Now that hardware brands have started using materials like ceramic and mesh, they can create coils that are small in size yet have a lot of surface heating area. Many hardware manufacturers are creating extremely powerful yet small coils that are specially designed for the small devices that are popular right now.
When nicotine salts were first created, e-juice bottles began to get smaller as well. If you use a pod mod, you are probably finding that a little e-juice goes a long way. Vape juices that contain nicotine salts deliver a much higher amount of nicotine per puff. As a result, nicotine-loving vapers do not have to take as many hits in order to get the satisfaction that they crave.
Because e-liquids made with nic salts are more potent, they are sold in smaller bottles. Vapers who enjoy this type of liquid typically find that they go through less juice over the course of time.
Size Does Not Mean as Much as You Think Anymore
As you can see, you should not always judge a piece of vaping hardware by its size. Thanks to amazing developments in vaping technology, small hardware products are capable of satisfying your needs just as effectively as the larger products of yesteryear.
