A mechanical mod is the balance between an advanced personal vaporizer and electronic cigarette reduced to its simplest form. Essentially a mechanical mod is just a metal tube that encases a battery. Mounted on top of the mod is a rebuildable atomizer (aka RBD/RDA). It does not house any electronics, circuitry or a regulating chipset to limit the battery’s release of power.
Due to its simplistic structure, power is directly taken from the battery and directly transmitted to the atomizer. Because of this, it’s important to have a through understanding of the way RBAs operate prior to use.
Power being sent from the battery to the atomizer can be altered with different types of coil builds. There are many different types of wire material, which is used to alter resistance as well as vapor production. The lower the resistance the more energy the battery will release to the atomizer. However, it’s entirely up to the user to build and regulate the resistance of the coil.
Battery safety, having the knowledge of proper building, and knowing how to use a multimeter is very important when it comes to building mechanical mods and RBAs.
It’s extremely important for you to know what resistance (measured in Ohms) is, as it’s the key for your understanding and safe operation of mechanical mods. Atomizer builds that have a low resistance will place a very high demand or “load” on the battery that you are using.
There are very few batteries in existence at the moment that can operate safely while delivering a heavy load. If a battery is used above its capabilities, it will likely fail. Battery failure can be venting, leaking, overheating. If you do not know the amp limits, the age or the chemistry of a battery that you have, you should NOT use them in your mechanical mod.
Get familiar with Ohm’s Law in order for you to understand the load that you are placing on your battery. Building coils with RBAs and mechanical mods can be quite the hobby, and we hope you enjoy all the benefits of these advanced devices. Build safe. Vape safe.
