10 Best Mechanical Mods under 100 dollars [2023] Mar

The latest Mech Mods are getting increasingly difficult to find.  Why are vendors removing mechs from there vape shops?  Mostly because well plan old and simple fact… No one is buying them.  There is just no demand for them.  Almost non existent, and soon mech mods will be gone.  So what will we be left with then? What will be the future of mech mods? Why the future is already here.  They are called bypass vapes.  But we are not here to talk about them. We are here to bring you the best mechanical mods out of what little is still being produced today.

Mechanical Mods are generally unregulated but with the evolution of the best mechanical mods came added functionality and features.  Some Mech Mods offer both regulated and unregulated vaping in a single device.

Unregulated Mods can get quite pricey but we have put together this list of more affordable mods for a more modest budget.  They’re all under 100 dollars but the truth is most of them are under 50 dollars, and some as low as 15 dollars.  We hope you enjoy this Mega Vaper list!

Advantages of The Best Mechanical Mods

Mechanical Mods are also known as “Unregulated Mods“.   This means that there are no circuit boards or control units built into the device.  Giving you all the power with no limits.

Even though Advanced Box Mods have gotten much better, mechanical mods still have the advantage, because they do not restrict low resistance RDA builds.  That means you can build a sub-ohm coil to go as low as you want and your mod will always fire.  This is not the case with many regulated mods where the chip limits the resistance. Beyond that, no chip means fewer wires and parts that can break. If you’re interested in learning more about the advantages of Mech mods here is a good post on Reddit.

A mechanical mod is durable and can last a lifetime.  Compared to advanced box mods they’re easier to use.  No big confusing screen with tons of options that can easily be changed as soon as it reaches the pocket.  The Best Mechanical Mods deliver quick high voltage power!

We will cover “Authentic Mech Mods” first and then cover “Clones” down below.

Best Mechanical Mod Clones

Below is an additional list of many hard to find mods. Some of the best mechanical mods can nowadays only be found as clones.

We’re sure not everyone will agree with the idea of purchasing a clone of another mod.  But a lot of times it may be the only way to get your hands on one.  Don’t disregard a mod just because it’s a clone and you think it’s poor quality.  Many clones these days are of very high quality with very accurate duplication.

Advantages of a Clone:

  • Availability – More readily available and stocked on most websites.
  • Price – Most range from $4 – $19.
  • Authentic Mechanical Mods can go way over $100.

Sometimes the price is just way too high and sometimes the original manufacturing brand has just stopped production of them all together.  If the price of a mechanical mod is just not affordable, a clone is a great way to test out a mod.  Then you can decide if you like the way it feels and vapes.  You may find out that you like it so much that you want to get the authentic version.
