What is an Electronic Cigarette Box Mod

Electronic cigarettes first debuted on the market in 2007, and have essentially exploded in popularity since that time. The newness of commercially available e-cigarette devices gave way to a certain level of creativity and inventiveness among vaping enthusiasts, as many of the products that were being introduced at the time did not offer certain features that e-cigarette users were looking for. Much like the old axiom indicates, necessity became the mother of invention among the vaping community, giving birth to what are now known as “mods,” or modifications. The practice of creating mods (commonly referred to as “modding”) is basically a form of “homegrown engineering,” in which e-cigarette users would tinker with cartridges, atomizers, wick materials, etc., in order to customize their vaping devices to their own liking.


As the practice of modding became more and more commonplace, eventually users began to experiment with altering the entire body of the e-cigarette altogether. A major breakthrough occurred when a pair of well-known vaping enthusiasts (known on the Web as “Trog and Mrog”) managed to convert the housing of an oddly-shaped flashlight into a tricked-out e-cigarette with extended battery life, setting the online vaping community on fire with excitement.


Vapers all over the world were inspired to venture out into uncharted territory by experimenting with mods of all shapes and sizes, with the goal of improving various functional aspects of their vaping devices. This eventually led to what is now known as the electronic cigarette box mod, a box-shaped encasing that houses the e-cigarette and typically gives it a distinct aesthetic appeal. Most box mods are similar in shape and size to an early-generation iPod, and are designed with the goal of providing greater room for more robust internal components, such as batteries and e-liquid tanks. The average box mod can accommodate a longer-lasting battery, and can also allow for a larger e-liquid tank, thus extending the usability of the e-cigarette far beyond the “standard issue” devices that are sold in stores. Box mods have not only improved the performance of e-cigarettes, but they have also become a way for vaping enthusiasts to add their stamp of individuality to their vaping devices.
