Best Internal Battery Vape Mods
By Lindsay Fox Posted April 17, 2019
Batteries are the powerhouses that keep us vaping. Although choosing a separate battery is important – and we’ve covered the best 18650 batteries elsewhere – many vape mods come with in-built batteries so you don’t have to pick anything up separately. There are plenty of options for e-cigs and mods which include batteries on the market, and that means there’s a lot of competition for your money. So what’s the best internal battery mod and eGo-style e-cig you can find?
Best Internal Battery Box Mods, VV/VW Mods, and eGo-Style E-Cigs
We polled thousands of vapers about their favorite VV/VW e-cigs and their favorite electronic cigarette starter kits, and we’ve used the results of those polls to put together this top 10 list of the best internal battery vape mods on the market.
10 – Wismec Active 80 W
The 10th placed mod in our best internal battery mods list goes to Wismec’s Active 80 W. The device has an in-built 2,100 mAh battery, and as the name indicates, puts out up to 80 W of power in VW mode. It also has a TC mode, supporting nickel, stainless steel and titanium coils, as well as offering a bypass (mech mod like) mode and the ability to adjust the TCR for TC modes. It has a fairly basic OLED display screen, but it’s clear and gets all of the key information across efficiently. The most unique offering from the device is the in-built Bluetooth speaker, which obviously does drain battery but is a nice feature for music lovers in particular.
The mod costs $54.95.
9 – OBS Cube 80 W
The OBS Cube is a unique-looking mod that packs a sizable battery into a compact package, making it a great option for anybody looking for a mod with an in-built battery. The Cube has a 3,000 mAh battery, more than enough to get you through a day of vaping, and it supports at up to 80 W. It doesn’t have temperature control, but if you’re looking for a solid performer in VW mode, it’s a great option that gets the job done in style. It has a square profile, with an LED display screen, large firing button and two adjustment buttons on the front, making it easy to hold and comfortable in-use.
The device is available for $34.95.
8 – Wismec RX Mini 80 W TC
The RX Mini from Wismec makes this best internal battery box mod list for its compact design and the generally-excellent performance it offers. With an internal 2,100 mAh battery and the characteristic diamond-like shape of the RX series, the device might not have as big a battery as some of the options on this list, but it’s more than enough for the 80 W power output of the mod. It also offers full TC support, with adjustable TCR and variable ramp-up wattage. The design is really the stand-out aspect of the device though, it looks really cool and fits comfortably in your palm.
You can pick it up for $42.95.
7 – GeekVape Aegis Mini
The Aegis Mini from GeekVape is an affordable and capable internal battery mod, offering up to 80 W of power in VW mode and supporting TC vaping with nickel, titanium and stainless steel coils. It’s a bit smaller than the average box mod, and has a textured grip section at the back. It features an in-built 2,200 mAh battery, which will get most users through a day of vaping between charges. The mod is also dustproof, shockproof and waterproof, so it’s a great option if you’re going to be vaping outside your house a lot. It also comes in a kit with the Cerberus tank, which has a 5.5 ml juice capacity and comes with two mesh coils.
The kit costs $54.95.
6 – Smok Stick V9 Max
The Smok Stick V9 Max is like a cross between a vape pen and a mod, supporting sub ohm vaping and putting out up to 60 W despite having no display screen or power settings and offering simple one-button operation. The combination of simplicity and performance is why it makes this list of the best built-in battery mods on the market today. The device has a 4,000 mAh internal battery, which will last you well over a day and possibly two, although since it works like a mechanical device, the power output drops alongside the remaining battery life. The device also comes in a kit with the V9 Max sub ohm tank, which has a huge 8.5 ml capacity and comes with two 0.15 ohm coils.
5 – Halo Triton Tank Kit
Halo’s Triton Tank kit is a fairly standard eGo-style e-cigarette, but it’s beginner-friendly nature earns it a spot as the fifth best e-cig battery on the market based on the results of our polls. The battery works like any other eGo-style device, with eGo threading, a “fire” button and not much else in the way of features. You can pick up 400 and 650 mAh versions of the battery – you get two in a kit – but it’s also available in variable voltage versions (adjustable between 3.3 and 4.8 V), which are ideal for vapers looking for both simplicity and improved functionality.
4 – Eleaf iPower 80 W
The iPower from Eleaf continues in their tradition of putting out very capable and high-power devices for affordable prices. The big selling-point of the iPower is the device’s massive 5,000 mAh internal battery, which is about as high capacity as you can expect for any internal battery mod on the market. The maximum power output of 80 W might not be enough for hardcore cloud-chasers, but for most vapers it provides more than enough power. The device also offers TC vaping with all common coil materials, and makes it easy to switch between it and VW mode with a dedicated mode select button.
You can pick up the iPower for $39.95.
3 – VaporFi Rocket
The Rocket from VaporFi is the highest-placed eGo-style battery, taking the spot of third best built-in battery e-cig. The Rocket has a 1600 mAh battery, providing enough battery life to get most vapers through a day of use, and offers variable voltage from 3.2 to 4.8 volts, operated by turning the dial on the bottom of the device. It comes with a matching 2.5 ml capacity tank atomizer, which includes a 1.8 ohm coil as standard and has an airflow control ring, and the device also works with other 510-threaded atomizers.
2 – Innokin iTaste MVP 4.0
The MVP series has been a mainstay of the vaping industry for many years, and the MVP 4.0 earns its spot as the second best e-cig battery on the market by improving the previous editions while still maintaining what made them awesome. It features an in-built 4,500 mAh battery and can put out up to 100 W of power, with a minimum atomizer resistance of 0.1 ohms. The device also has full temperature control support, and like previous editions, can also double as a power pack for charging your phone or other devices with a USB input.
The MVP 4.0 costs $57.95 new.
1 – Innokin Coolfire Ultra TC150 Express
Innokin’s Coolfire Ultra TC150 Express earns the spot of top internal battery vape mod – with the brand really dominating the top of the list – thanks to its combination of great power output and excellent battery life. The 4,000 mAh battery might be a bit less than the MVP 4.0’s, but this is coupled with a huge 150 W power output, making the device suitable for everyone from new vapers to dedicated cloud-chasers. As the name suggests, it also supports TC vaping (with Ni, Ti and SS coils supported), and it crams all these features into a compact box mod, with a clear OLED display and a curved back edge for comfort in-use.
Best Internal Battery Vape Mods (As Recommended by ECR Staff)
Of course, there are tons of competitors for the title of best internal battery and rechargeable vape mods and vape pens, and many great options not covered by the list above. So, to give you more options for when you’re looking for a top-quality built-in battery mod, we’ve put together some additional suggestions based on the recommendations of our staff here at ECR. Here’s our staff’s personal picks for the top 10 best vape mods with built-in batteries:
10 – Innokin Endura T22
The Endura T22 is somewhere between a vape pen and a mod, but with its 2,200 mAh internal battery and mouth-to-lung focus, it’s a great option for anybody new to vaping looking for a device to get started with. The device doesn’t have adjustable power settings and basically works like an ordinary vape pen, but the performance is great and you get a tank with a 1.5 ohm coil in the kit as standard. It costs $32.95.
9 – Joyetech eGo One Mega
The eGo One Mega is another device that’s effectively just like a vape pen but comes with an internal battery and blurs the boundaries with mods to some extent. The battery is 2,300 mAh, which will comfortably keep you vaping for a whole day even at higher powers. It comes with a 4 ml capacity tank, including 0.5 and 1 ohm coils, so it offers sub ohm vaping and performance in line with many of the more basic mods on the market. It’s available for $29.99.
8 – Eleaf iJust 3
The iJust 3 is another pen-style mod but the internal battery is pretty formidable, with a capacity of 3,000 mAh that will last even heavy vapers through a whole day of use. The device supports coils down to 0.1 ohms in resistance, so even without adjustable power settings you can get up to 80 W out of the mod. It comes in a kit with the Duro Ello tank, which has a 6.5 ml juice capacity and comes with two sub ohm coils as standard. The iJust 3 costs $42.95.
7 – Smok Mag Baby 50 W
The Mag Baby is a compact version of the Mag Grip, and it offers an impressive range of features for such a compact and affordable device. The internal battery has a capacity of 1,600 mAh, and while this is lower than many other devices on this list, the additional features more than make up for this downside. It offers variable wattage vaping at up to 50 W, and temperature control vaping with all common TC coil materials. It also comes with the TFV12 Baby Prince tank, making it a great option for anybody new to vaping. You can get it for $49.99.
6 – Vaporesso Tarot Nano 80 W
The Tarot Nano from Vaporesso looks awesome and includes a big internal battery to keep you vaping through the day. The battery has a 2,500 mAh capacity, and supports variable wattage vaping at up to 80 W. It also offers TC functionality – supporting all common TC coil materials – as well as the option to use the device in bypass mode to get performance more like a mechanical mod. It comes in a kit with the Veco: a 2 ml capacity, top-filling tank, with two sub ohm coils included as standard. The mod costs $54.95 new.
5 – Innokin Kroma-A 75 W
The Kroma-A from Innokin makes our list thanks to its no-nonsense design, impressive range of features and a decent-sized internal battery. It might not be as long-lasting as other options in this list, with a 2,000 mAh capacity, but the 75 W maximum power output, support for all TC coils and the included Crios sub ohm tank for the affordable price puts it right up there with the best options on the market. You can pick the Kroma-A up for $46.95, with the tank and two 0.65 ohm coils.
4 – Smok Stick Prince
The Stick range from Smok has a lot of devices that could make this list, but along with the V9 Max covered above, the Prince is one of the best options on the market with an internal battery. It has the same vape-pen-turned-mod style, and features a 3,000 mAh internal battery with a single button that works essentially like a mechanical mod. It doesn’t have features like TC vaping, but if you want a straightforward and high-performance device, it’s definitely one to consider. The mod comes with the TFV12 Prince tank and two 0.17 ohm coils, and you can get it for $39.99.
3 – Vaporesso Revenger Mini 85 W
The Revenger is the second Vaporesso device to make this list, and although there are some broad similarities, the Revenger comes with a bigger tank and puts out a bit more power. The mod has a 2,500 mAh internal battery, and charges at an impressive 2.5 A, offering much faster charging than most devices on the market. It puts out up to 85 W in VW mode, as well as offering TC vaping with all common coil materials and the ability to adjust the TCR. The NRG SE sub ohm tank included with the kit has a 3.5 ml capacity and comes with one ordinary and one TC-friendly coil. The kit costs $49.99.
2 – Eleaf iStick Melo 60 W
The iStick Melo isn’t the highest-power option on this list, but it has an impressively long-lasting battery and is currently on-sale at an absolute bargain price. The device has an in-built 4,400 mAh battery, which more than makes up for the 60 W maximum power output. It also offers bypass mode (so it works like a mech mod) and a TC mode that supports all common coil materials, as well as offering adjustable TCR. It comes with the Melo 4 sub ohm tank, which has a 4.5 ml juice capacity and comes with two sub ohm coils. You can pick the kit up for just $24.99 while it’s on-sale.
1 – Tesla Three
The Tesla Three is a pretty simple mod, but the combination of a huge power output and one of the biggest internal batteries on the market makes it a great option for longer-term vapers in particular. It puts out up to 150 W of power, which on its own is impressive enough, but the internal battery is a massive 5,000 mAh. It’s something of a middle-ground between regulated and unregulated devices, with the power depending on the remaining charge, but including safety features like regulated mods and only supporting coils of 0.1 ohms or higher. It costs $39.95.
Although our readers and our staff have their own personal picks for the best internal battery vape mods and e-cigs, it’s worth stressing that the choice is ultimately dependent on your personal preferences. You might be more interested in maximizing battery life, or you might prioritize a high power over all else. These options can point you in the right direction, but don’t just shoot for the number one ranked battery without considering the other options. We’ll be adding a buying guide in the coming weeks to help you make your choice, so check back soon!
