The 14 Coolest E-Cig Mods For 2014

By John Madden Posted May 29, 2014

Coolest E-Cig Mods for 2014


Last year we unveiled our first ever coolest e-cig mods list, which included some unique and creative devices like the Vent69’s Steampunk Mod and one modeled from an old NES controller. However, this year we decided to let the vaping community provide some input on what they felt deserved a spot on the list. We created a poll with just about as many of the coolest mods imaginable. As a result, we have two lists for the 2014 edition of the best-looking e-cig mods. The first will be our Editor’s Choice of the Top 14 chosen by the public and the second will be an ongoing user poll. Without further adieu, here are the coolest e-cig mods for 2014 followed by our ongoing user poll.



Editor’s Choice Coolest E-Cig Mods


1. Black Caravela


The original Caravela was an honorable mention last year, even though it could have very well made the top ten. Even though he stopped production on original Caravelas at 999 units, Pedro Carvalho wasn’t done manufacturing some of the most exquisite pieces of metalwork the industry has ever seen. Last December, along with a solid silver version, he unveiled this black ceramic-coated Caravela. It was manufactured in both matte and polished versions and even some with Swarovsky crystals embedded into the locking ring. There is no denying that Pedro’s black Caravela, especially when polished, is a truly beautiful work of art.

2. Steampunk Mod by Vent69


The Steampunk was our “coolest mod” for 2013 based on its unique appeal and incredibly detailed rustic and industrialized appearance. Many more steampunk variations have since been manufactured but this one still holds strong as one of the coolest mods ever made, period. Made by a modder known only as Vent69, this particular piece crafted for Tyler Strickland, or “GothicVash” in the vaping world, seemingly has all the bells and whistles a vaper could ever ask for.

3. M5 E-Pipe by Mythical Fabrications


Launched at Vapetoberfest 2013 in Long Beach, California, the M5 E-Pipe is another customized work of art. Las Vegas-based modders Mythical Fabrications specialize in making e-pipes out of various materials ranging from wood to stone and in our opinion, the M5 stands out the most. The metal version features a fitted topcap and utilizes eight Neodymium magnets and is currently sold out in all variations.

4. Poldiac by MMVapors


There are mechanical mods and then there’s the Greek siren from MMVapors, otherwise known as the Poldiac. Whereas the majority of mechs utilize a bottom-firing switch, the Poldiac houses a beautifully laser-engraved button on its side. Surrounded by some of the thickest steel or brass I’ve ever seen in a mod, this seductress has the ability to shipwreck the most avid of vape collectors.

5. Billet BoX Mod


The Billet BoX is very unique and interesting device in that only does it run on two 16340 batteries and houses an internal 6.5ml e-liquid tank. On top of that, the housing features a sleek aluminum body with carbon fiber plates on the front and back. Each plate has a beautiful glossy finish. The back plate slides on and off for tank refilling and battery replacement, as well as voltage adjustment. While the trend recently seems to be toward high powered mechanical and variable wattage devices, the Billet BoX serves vapers who prefer magnificent appearance over the ability to cloud chase.

6. Nemesis by Atmomixani


The Nemesis isn’t the most cloned mechanical mod based of its performance alone. Its minimalist appearance combined with the ability to customize and mix and match various tubes make the Nemesis one of the most visually appealing e-cigarettes mods as well. Like the Poldiac, original Nemesis mods are manufactured in Greece and come in various combinations of matte and polished stainless steel or  brass finishes. Atmomixani also themed the Nemesis quite nicely, engraving the main tube of each device with their notorious angel of death.

7. The Hammer Mod by Kato


Made in South Korea by modder known to the community as Kato, the Hammer mod is thought by many have been modeled after Norse god Thor’s Mjölnir. Other’s point out that its engravings appear Celtic in nature, however Kato has said that the art “draws inspiration from a hammerhead shark.” Either way, the Hammer is an incredibly unique mechanical e-cig mod and one of only two e-pipe mods on this list.

8. Valkyrie Mod by Vicious Ant


The Valkyrie is one of the most uniquely shaped mechanical mods ever manufactured. Vicious Ant gave it an hourglass shape that flows very nicely throughout this hybrid mechanical mod. In fact, it is the only hybrid to make our “Coolest Mods” list this year. The attached atomizer features VA’s signature slotted airflow control and the switch features reverse threading for hassle-free locking and unlocking.

9. The GLV-2 


After being virtually unknown to me, this mod scored high in our user poll so I figured it was worth including in the editor’s choice. The GLV-2 is a fixed five volt personal vaporizer from Great Lakes Vapor that runs on two CR123A 3.7v protected lithium ion batteries. It is highly customizable and features an offset 510 connection giving the GLV-2 a unique look.

10. V3tronix Flip


The V3tronix Flip is one of the most intricately crafted mechanical e-cigarette mods we’ve ever seen. V3tronix manufactures the Flip from 304 food grade stainless steel that is CNC engraved at depths up to 2mm. It is also telescopic and can accommodate battery sizes ranging from 18500 to 18650 with a kick. Due to the intricacy of the engravings, the Flip is arguably the most original mechanical mod on the market.

11. Hana Modz V3 


Like the V2, The Hana Modz V3 is constructed from billet 6061 aluminum in a variety of eye-catching colors. The main difference between the two is the V3 utilizes the DNA30 chip that allows the output of the battery to be adjusted up to 30 watts. In our opinion, the Hana V3 could very well be the sleekest box mod out there!

12. Otto Carter Engraved Aztec


Otto Carter is a world-renowned engraver who has specialized in gun, knife, jewelry and now personal vaporizers. The Atzec is essentially a Chi-You mod that he went to town on, creating a one-of-a-kind brass masterpiece.

13. ZNA by House of Hybrids


Another mod on our list to feature the DNA30 chip on, the ZNA is manufactured by notorious modder Zen, maker of the Zenesis line of mechanical mods and hybrids. The ZNA combines a hybrid mix of both tube and box mod into a single functional design.

14. Innokin iTaste VTR


Innokin has become one of the most respected Chinese manufacturers of personal vaporizers and accessories with devices like the iTaste VV and MVP and now iTaste 134 and VTR mods. The iTaste VTR stands out from their quiver due in part to its recessed 510 connector and tank bay, more safely encasing a variety of clearomizers. A variable voltage device, the VTR is adjustable up to either 6 volts or 15 watts.

User Poll Coolest E-Cig Mods


  • Domenico DiDiana

    This is bullshit.. you did this twice already.. Both times the M5 E-pipe won.. I dont see why you keep putting it up.. Just let it rest that mythicalfabrications won.. Number 1 Should be in order that they won.. Even when you go to the poll it shows that they are number one.. Clearly this website is getting paid off to have someone else up there. Its bullshit that its not fair.. And it shows your website has no moral standards to get the truth. How are people suppose to trust your reviews if you cant even have a legitimate contest and give credit to the winner. Full of bullshit this site is.. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    • Hi Domenico, this was never meant to be a “contest”. Last year when we ran the first coolest mods article, several good choices were left off the list then added in later following user suggestions and comments. The vote this year was intended to expedite that process and possibly influence the editor’s choice, which it did. And the list at the top is simply the editor’s choice, done in a similar fashion to what most tech websites do, with an editors’ rating and a user rating. The poll will be ongoing on this page and the M5 still leads!

      • Domenico DiDiana

        Influence the editors choice? So in essence the votes that were made were only a sugjestion to him? Might have been a good idea to mention that in the post itself. Rather then letting the people just think its their choice.. again.. not being clear makes people mistrust your website. Leaves it open for the “editor” To be bought.. or cohered. Might have been a better idea to just let the people decide rather then leaving it up to one person to decide in the end whos got the coolest mod of 2014.. I hope in the future you think a little harder on what to tell people and how effective or important the votes actually are. cause.. you basically told me they aren’t. Yeah the M5 still leads.. but its not shown at the top. It means that in the end it means nothing. And that the editor gets to choose what the coolest mod is.. if it had said. “What we think the coolest mods are!” I wouldn’t have an issue with it. But you put it to a public vote and in the end it didn’t matter. I don’t know about anyone else.. But that feels like a sham. and feels like you don’t listen to your public.. and makes people feel like they cant trust you or this website. Again.. i really hope you think nextime before you do something like this.

        • Domenico DiDiana

          Cause if you havent read so far.. things that have been plasterd all over facebook and twitter .. are that you guys are liers.

  • George

    E-cigarettes are the best alternative to cigarette smoking. I have

  • Daniel Jenner

    One of the best alternative for smoking is ecigarette. As far as I have researched, ecigarette has a lot more benefits than the regular cigarettes. That is why I have shifted to using a vaper so to minimize the ill effects of cigarette smoking.

  • ElijahStoneQ

    I like the Dragon Koi

  • David Church

    I had the VTR for less than 6 months when it started malfunctioning. The company doesn’t care and after many attempts to have it corrected, they refused to fix it. Will never buy another product from them again.

    • anthony

  • Dylan

  • Petahson

  • Tracy Morgan

    I’m not sure. But what about the Energy Column from Joylife? It could be a 2015 thing. It is definitely on my hit list of mods to get. I love the wilder looking mods. I own the

    IPV4….I know, it’s not so exciting.
