What Is the Difference between a Regulated MOD and an Unregulated One

Different types of mods are available in the market today. From mechanical mods to box mods and from unregulated mods to regulated mods! So you want to determine mod life, but are unsure how a regulated mod or an unregulated mod can impact the life of mod? Here’s how:

Sub-Ohm Vaping

Regulated mods allow using sub-ohm coils i.e. coils built under 1.0 ohms. The major concern is the safety of the user. If your coil is built too low, an error will be displayed on your mod screen – if your mod is regulated. This error will not allow you to vape and pressing the fire button will not fire.

On the other hand, you can vape unregulated mods at any sub-ohm level; however, it is the user’s responsibility to ensure safety.

Battery Safety

Regulated mods will not allow vaping if the battery is low. The mod will not fire at all, even when you try to fire it with the button held down. You will either have to replace your mod battery with a new one or use the charging cable to recharge the battery.

While, unregulated mods allow you to vape until the battery is depleted. This is NOT recommended. Vaping until the battery is depleted poses health risks and concerns as the battery overworks which might result in battery acid leaning and battery blowing up. Keeping the battery above 3.5 volts is a recommended level, and you can measure this with multimeter, easily available at all stores.

Regulated and Unregulated Vaping

A regulated vape is usually set to 25 watts, which means every time you hit the fire button for a vape, 25 watts will be discharged. Unregulated mods, on the other hand, do not provide the same hit every time. Low batteries will cause coils to not heat up fast i.e. you will not receive a large hit as you would with a charged battery.

Safety should be your first priority. Whether you choose a regulated mod or an unregulated one, take precautions. Unregulated mods require a lot more safety as compared to regulated mods. If you are an old user and are aware of modding safety, you can use the unregulated mod. If not, go with the regulated mod!
