What is a mechanical mod?

Mechanical mods demand user understanding of ohms law, lithium-ion battery safety, and electrical conductivity.

A mechanical mod is an easy yet innovative vaping gadget that delivers raw battery power to an atomizer without electronic policies, safeguards or securities for the user. For experienced enthusiasts, this enables a broad degree of customization depending upon the batteries utilized, the construct of the atomizer and the materials used on the mech mod itself.

There are just a few parts to a mech mod:

Battery real estate: Usually in metal tube form, though mechanical box mods are likewise common in wood or plastic. Tube mechs generally just take one battery where boxes can house several cells.

Unfavorable and positive contacts: The positive connection is in the top cap and the negative contact remains in the button which is usually spring loaded.
A button or switch: The button completes the electric circuit when pushed. Numerous buttons on tube mods are recessed to avoid unintentional “shooting,” or have integrated locks for when not in use.

510 connection: Built into the leading cap of a tube mod or on the top of a mechanical box, the 510 connection is a type of threading that electrically connects the atomizer and mod. An atomizer has the male end of the 510, and the mod has the female end. There are positive pins within the atomizer and the mod’s 510 threading, generally made from copper or brass, that contact each other to provide power.

Unlike the industry-dominant regulated box mods, mechanical mods will send battery current to an atomizer no matter its resistance. That suggests that even if your atomizer has a brief or a dangerously low resistance for your picked battery, a mechanical mod will still power it and continue to power it if the button is pushed, which could cause disastrous battery failure.
