Video Transcript: Empire Vape Shop - Regulated Mods vs Mechanical Mods by Empire Vape Shop
Alright, we need to settle this.
Alright, let's go.
Hey, what's going on, guys? Welcome to another edition to Vaping with Empire.
I am Chapman.
You never get it right. You're Hunter.
I'm Hunter, he is Hunter. And so what are we talking about today?
Today we're talking about regulated versus mech mods, and we're basically gonna go over the pros and cons of both. What we vape, why you should buy a regulated mod over a mechanical mod.
And why you should buy a mechanical mod over a regulated mod. So yeah, I think that's about it. What are you vaping on right now?
I am vaping on a Copper Able set up. The juice is Red K by Maine Vape Co. Signature Series lines. It's a Strawberry Cereal Bar, and it is to die for.
Nice. I'm vaping on the Reuleaux. It's an RX200, the original RX200, with a Cleito 120 on the top of it, and I'm vaping FAR's Neon Red Slushie. And it's delicious, not to mention even a nice swag too.
Oh wow, gotta love the swag. So we're gonna dive down with Chappy, take a look at some regulated mods, and...
I'll see you there.
Go from there.
So what's a regulated device? A regulated device allows you to customize your settings for a particular type of vape that you wanna get. I like regulated devices because they're really safe. They have the computer chip normally inside of them that allows you to dictate power. It allows you to... If you have a short circuit, put it this way, it won't fire. If you drain your batteries too quickly, it won't fire. If the device gets hot, it won't fire. There's a lot of safety in these types of devices. Normally, if you're a newer vaper or someone that has never owned a mechanical mod before, I would always recommend these first, just for that reason.
Let's talk about wattage versus temp control. Wattage is essentially how you dictate power on most of your regulated devices. This Reuleaux right here does 0-200 watts, and I can dictate that by just going up and down, depending on what type of tank I have on it. Temperature control is used for certain types of wire. For instance, titanium, nickel, stainless steel can all be used in temp control to really give you the type of ramp-up, ramp-down or vapor quality that you want.
I like regulated mods. Besides the fact that they're safe is that a lot of them hold a lot of batteries. This one right here holds four, the Reuleaux RX300. The SnowWolf, I believe the 218 holds three batteries as well, and the Reuleaux holds three batteries as well. So when I'm on the go or in the car and I don't wanna drip and drive, this is my baby that I take with me. I also like regulated devices because a lot of them have the ability to charge the batteries in them as well. So let's just say I was in another state somewhere and I didn't have my charger on me. A lot of times, I can plug this in, give it a charge, and keep on going. So that's why I like regulateds a lot.
So what else do we have? Most regulated devices you'll find are really, really good with a tank. Some come in kits, just like this one right here. They have a tank already on them. Other ones, you can put a tank or a dripper on. But you'll find that if your device doesn't have enough power to push the build that's inside of that dripper, you're really not gonna get a whole lot of vapor quality, so you're gonna wanna go to a tank. And for the most part, that's about it. I like this one right here only because it's safer. It gives me a great on-the-go vape. And I know Hunter's gonna tell you right now, but I like these a lot better. So let's see if I can turn it to Hunter right now, and he'll talk about those mechanical mods.
Now let's take a look at some mechanical devices. What is a mechanical device? A mechanical device is basically a device that you cannot regulate the power based off of just hitting a button. There is no safeties built in to play of computer chips or anything like that. To change the power you have to change your build. Normally, a single tube will run off of 4.2 volts, because that is the voltage of an 18650 battery. There are some devices, such as these guys right here, that will change that, all depends on what they're running. If it's parallel, series or just a single tube, that will change the power and what you're really gonna want to build at.
But why would you wanna build lower, lower than a 0.1 that a normal regulated mod will usually cut off at? It's usually to give you more vapor production, better flavor because of the more heat that you're gonna be able to get out of the coil. So in perspective, you can have this Cherry Bomber. That's a lot of vapor production. In my opinion, I love that. So basically, there's different types of unregulated devices. There's boxes, these guys, and there are single tubes, and there's single tubes that are split up into non-hybrid and hybrid devices. Hybrid devices are basically devices that are gonna have a direct connection from the battery to the atomizer via the 510 connection. And in a regular hybrid, there's going to be a pin, or a lack of a pin going through here, and basically you're gonna want to have a Peek insulator. A Peek insulator is an insulator that has no conductivity at all. Also, you're gonna want a protruding 510 pin, such as a Battle Deck, a Tugboat V2, a Kennedy. A lot of different things have that capability, but some things don't. Tanks, you don't wanna run tanks on an unregulated device because that will cause danger because it doesn't have the Peek insulator, it doesn't have the extended 510 connection to actually properly make the connection to the battery. So now that we've taken a look at everything, let's go back up and vape them all.
So, I wanna make something straight with you guys. If you own a mechanical device and you wanna build lower than what a regulated device lets you, consult a professional. I honestly say, Don't do it. Me and Hunter are both trained professionals. Just because we do it doesn't mean you should, and if you want to try something like that and you don't have the right equipment or you don't know what you're doing, it could be very hazardous to your health. So always check with a professional like me.
Like one of us, before you do so. So now that we said that, I gotta come clean about something.
We gotta tell you something.
These are my mods right here. These are what I vape. This is my Ruby 25 by Kennedy; this is my Masterpiece Vape's Cherry Bomber; and this is a Eleaf iCare that I keep with me at all times. It's like my own sneak-a-vape. I like my unregulated mechanical devices because, clouds, bro, clouds. And I like to drip and I like to build. I also like them because they're really, really pretty, and they're easy to use. There are risks involved, absolutely, but again, professional, semi-professional. What are you vaping?
I vape on normally, when I'm on the go and I really don't have time to drip and pay attention to things, I'm using my RX200 with my Cleito 120. I get great flavor off of this, and it's great for battery life. I don't have to worry about refilling it because I can fill the tank, and it will last me like an hour, an hour and a half, two hours, and I can just go on and be on my merry way.
That's why I like the iCare, because it's small, it's compact, it's cheap. I can have it in my watch pocket at all times. If I wanna take a couple of drags, say in the car, no problem. But for the most part, when I'm at work or I'm hanging around with this guy right here, I'm vaping a mech, straight-up.
And when I do have time and I'm not so much all over the place, like I tend to be sometimes, I will vape a mechanical device. I single tube. I vape my Able; I love this thing. I get great flavor, great vapor production, nice hot build, and that's what I prefer because I know how to do it.
When I have the time to pay attention to it, I can do it properly.
And like I say, if you wonder what's safe, remember we just did a video on battery safety over there. So check that out first before you decide to do something stupid, because I tell you right now, I like having these. You like having yours? I thought you had a stub?
