What makes a good mod?

What makes a good mod? This question came up over Skype and it was surprising how many different facets to consider when answering that particular question. The size, the shape, the materials and build, whether or not the mod has a sealed battery, the wattage range, the resistance range, floating 510 connection, nice buttons, a good warranty, elegance or flair, temperature control, protective features, clear and convenient menu, firmware/software updates, wifi connectivity, 4g? The list could go on further I am sure. In an ever changing industry and market such as this it is anyone’s guess as to which way the wind will blow next. That’s one of the things I love about the electronic cigarette industry, there is always a surprise around the corner. Compounding this is the fact that all of this is subjective to each user so everyone will have their personal opinion of what a good mod is.

My friend said that his perfect mod would be something safe, practical, can fit into his pocket, and will not auto fire. Something with a good warranty, one that shows the company believes in their product so that he can also have confidence in the product. He also added that the mod should be easy to understand and use.

My personal idea of the perfect mod should be something small, rugged, swappable batteries, fast charging (just in case), temp control (as an option), solid buttons, a clear easy to read screen with an intuitive menu, and no flashy logos.

Here at Aspire we love to take feedback from our customers. Seeing your ideas materialize makes us proud. So I want to ask you, the reader and the customer, what you think the perfect mod is. Maybe you will see your idea materialized!


Triton Cleaning?

So now that the prince of the sea has arrived it seems he can be a petulant little child when it comes to his royal hygiene. So how do we deal with such a bratty prince? When my Triton is naughty I shove him under hot water. This works to flush out his insides nicely. Then I shake him violently with his top fill open while strangling him. Once I have shaken his world apart for about thirty seconds I like to use a can of compressed air to get rid of anything that may be collected inside. Finally I set him down and ignore him for about ten to twenty minutes. (This is by no means parenting advice and should only apply to clearomizers, electronic cigarettes, and princelings of the sea.)


In all seriousness the Triton is such a versatile tank I think that this is quite a small disadvantage. On the other hand I am confident that our resident mad scientists will outdo themselves again soon enough.

P.S.    Please share with us how you give your prince of the sea a bath.


Electronic cigarettes; function over form

Function over form?
Can you remember your first ecig? What did it look like? Or maybe you know someone who has or uses a mod that looks like something out of an episode of Dr. Who or Star Wars. You know exactly what I mean too. The big unwieldy futuristic devices that seem more concerned with form than with function. Should your ecig be a fashion accessory or simply your alternative to analog cigarettes? There is no correct answer because this boils down to personal preference. However most of us would prefer a sleek device with a muted appearance rather than something that looks like it came out of a scifi flick.
We love scifi as much as anyone else, don’t get me wrong but nobody really likes being stared and gawked at over our mods. Whether you’re just chilling at home, on the go with friends, at the club on a Friday night, or in the bathroom at work what really matters is how your mod feels and functions, right? And if we can enjoy a solid, well made, and reliable device without attracting undue attention over our preference in how we quit smoking even better!
Let it not go unsaid that there is a time and a place for everything, but is the bathroom really a place where you want to be seen sticking a sonic screwdriver in your mouth? Don’t misunderstand, nobody is hating on Dr. Who here. The point is that there are many different choices out there, some aesthetically pleasing and some not so, subjectively speaking.
No matter what kind of look you prefer the important thing is finding a healthy alternative to the analogs. So whether you want to look like a Jedi or a regular Joe there is a device out there for you.
