Hi peeps, this is really baffling me (don't take a lot to baffle me), other then the obvious difference between mechanical mods & vv/vw mods are there any other huge differences?
Reason I ask is because I am thinking about getting a mechanical mod, I have quite a few vv/vw mods but like a typical man I want more and was thinking about mechanical mods but don't know if I should bother??
Really depends on what you want to do. With mechanical mods you'll have to find either the right apparatus to put on them in regards of the ohm of the head or use rebuildables so you can tinker around with the ohmage yourself. Also, with mechanicals you get the direct output of the battery which will go down while you use it and the battery gets depleted. So you'll need to aim for ohmage that's "ok" with a fresh battery, great while it depletes and then when your battery is low you'll notice a big drop off and it's time to put in a fresh battery.
With VV/VW you don't really have those problems. Altho I must say that some mechanicals look great it will take some effort in finding the rights ohmage of whatever you put on them
As testdruif says A freshly charged battery will push out 4.2v which is fine when using a 2ohm carto/clearo/coil After a little while of use the battery will voltage will drop and you'll be pushing 3.7v ( which is the nominal output) through that same 2ohm coil and you'll notice that it's all becoming weaker VV/VW do not suffer from this as they regulate the battery to a degree so that the voltage remains the same till the battery needs recharging. You can however put a drop in module into a mechanical mod that will regulate the battery voltage. A mechanical mod is usually much shorter than its electronic counterpart and they are more aesthetically pleasing. Also to consider, a VV/VW device will have a limitation on the power that its switch can handle so when you try to use a 1ohm coil or lower the VV/VW device will not be able to power the coil- no such problems with a mechanical mod though however you will find yourself pushing 4.2v through a 1ohm coil which will be a kick in the throat to say the least until the battery voltage drops. Newer more advanced vv/vw units are starting come with a higher rated switch lately which have the power to work these low ohm coils but are on the pricey side at the moment.
You need to find what your preferred coil ohms is and what your preferred voltage through that coil is before you decide whether or no a mechanical mod is right for you or get a drop in module and get the best of both worlds
Thanks so much every one. @ blakey,I am mainly using between 1.8-2.2 ohm atomisers at the moment. Right now I am vaping from a ismoka mini bcc on a vamo v5. I mainly buy vg only liquid 10mg on a 7-8 wattage setting (weakling...I know), but I am slowly getting few eliquid's with a mixture of pg & vg.
I was thinking about purchasing a smok magneto, your thoughts?
The smok magneto is a decent enough mod but it has no adjustable center pin which means that some atties will not have a long enough 510 connector to make electrical contact and some will have too long a 510 connector which means you attie will sit proud of the mod. The Ismoka is an ego threaded attie so you will need a 510- ego adapter to use it on a mechanical mod
