What are vape mod kits?

Mod kits combine a mod and tank in one kit. The mod provides the power and controls, such as wattage selection. They are powered by an internal battery, which can either be fixed or replaceable. The tank holds the e-liquid. The tank and mod are attached together, usually via a threaded 510 connection. The 510 connection means most tanks and mods are interchangeable.

Mod kits usually come packaged with replacement coils for the tank, and a charger cable, which means the only thing you need to buy separately is the e-liquid and, if using a replaceable battery design, the battery. This battery is usually an 18650 or 21700,. For maximum battery capacity, choose a mod which uses dual 21700 batteries.

Modern mods are generally user friendly, with ergonomic design and simple to operate controls, whilst allowing access to advanced functionality for those seeking it. Many of the more complex devices also offer settings such as ‘smart mode’ making them accessible for new vapers or those with limited experience. This is in contrast to early models which were often confusing, fiddly to use, and uncomfortable box shapes - giving rise to the name ‘Box Mod’.

Vape tank size limit

There is one crucial difference between UK vape mod kits and mod kits outside Europe. That’s down to an EU law, the Tobacco Products Directive 2 (TPD 2), which limits the size of vape tanks to 2ml. That’s why you’ll sometimes see some mod kits listed as ‘TPD’ version.

Mods versus Pods & Vape Pens

Pen style and vape pod devices overlap with mods, but in general are likely to be smaller, lower powered and easier to use. As you can imagine, vape pens get their name from their similarity to a pen, while pod devices have a pod which clips into a vape device instead of screwing in. Pod mods are a cross between pod and mode devices, combining some of the simplicity of pod devices with some of the power of a mod device.

You Must Be Over 18 to Buy From E-cigarette Direct

Why do I have to prove my age?

To our website you look under 18.

So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.

You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.

Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.

On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!

Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).

(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )

How your data is used

We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)

Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.

Why do we check age?

As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.

This is against both our company policy and the law.

And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.

For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.
