Mech Mods Review: 10 Best (AFFORDABLE) Mechanical Mods

It's not always easy to find top mechanical mods while on a budget. Often when we need to vape on the cheap, we start looking for the best mech mod clones, because most authentic mech mods are painfully out of reach, often costing $200 or more.

However, the market is changing. Top mechanical mods makers are starting to see that we are more willing to buy from them if the price is right, and so more and more products are being released at lower prices. For the first time, we are starting to see good mech mods at prices most of us can afford.

So now I present to you a list of 10 best mechanical mods available right now for less than $100:

The 10 Best Mechanical Mods under 100 USD:

DejaVu DJV Mech Mod

The DejaVu DJV Mech Mod a hard hitting single 18650 mech mod designed in Malaysia.

It's currently only available in one color which is black, but includes two unique fire buttons and 2 grips, allowing you to customize it to your liking.

 It is primarily constructed out of pure brass and copper material, and is pretty compact, so it's very comfortable in the hands.

It also features a hybrid top cap, so only atomizers with protruding 510 pins can be used.However, due to this alongside its construction and gold plated contact, it makes for an excellent performer.

What's even better is that it includes both a spring and magnet, which not many mechs include at this price range. This allow for further customization for not only the looks, but how the button feels when you vape with it. Everything is packaged well in a zippered pouch, which is again seen with mechanical mods that cost double, even triple the DejaVu Mech's cost.

Its overall diameter is 25mm, so it'll fit all of your atomizers that are 25mm and below in diameter. This is another huge pro as many newer RDAs and some of the Best RDAs do come in 24mm and 25mm sizes.

All in all, the DJV Mech not only performs well, but it looks good too. You're definitely getting something that feels "High End", but not breaking the bank. If you enjoy single 18650 mechs, then definitely get you one of these, it surely won't disappoint.

      Thank you :) I found out right after publishing that I did miss one: the King Sword mod. Although I still can’t verify if the original maker was Sigelei or Wotofo… they both make clones so it’s hard to tell! It looks like a decent mod tho :)

  1. Oh Ya, your right, well here’s the answer for you (below), And only $85… You are brilliant, I have over 300 mods and don’t have the King Sword, but do have the Vapor Flask NOW, got lucky at VapeRev.. That one goes on the lost your mind for a minute list but happy I did, but really all these are great mods like you mentioned and the price, well you can’t go wrong with any of these, the King Sword made me smile because I think that one is or maybe should be on the top of your list quality wise, I’ve seen one before and thought it was a high price original, the one listed below was a limited run and all at a vaping cheap price, Your great..~!!! Oh by the way and I’m not sure if this one qualifies but how about the Snow Wolf asMODus Snow Wolf 18650 22mm Mechanical Mod $99.95
    King Sword
    Authentic Mod By: A-MOD

      Thank you Gary :) yeah I saw a review of the king sword and I thought it was pretty nice. Let us know how it performs when you get it, I’m interested :)

      I thought about the snow wolf, but I chose not to include it because I was trying to show one mod per manufacturer, and I thought the Klone was a better deal :) smoktech, sigelei, and super-T all also have more than one mod in that price range. I tried to pick the best mod from each company.

  2. The Beyond Vape Beacon is amazing! I’m gonna get a couple. It’s the only telescopic mod I’ve loved and the price is amazing. I forgot to pic one up at vapecon, but the people are cool and the copper beacon hit like a brick!!!

    1. Christina Grace

      I have heard lots of great things about the beacon :) and it’s pretty slick looking too, the best looking telescopic mod I’ve seen. I hope you enjoy yours!

  3. What is the best source for information on current vaping tech? I am so far behind that at times I don’t even know what these reviews are talking about! :D What is “sub ohm”? Why is Japanese organic cotton so special? What’s involved in modifying my Kangertech gear? I have a million questions and obviously this isn’t the place to ask them, so… where can I just read up on all of this stuff?

    Thanks… ataraxia

  4. I’m floored the mode that started the hole “affordable but quality: mod trend was left out:

    The Lifestyle mode by AVP (ans SOV), I bout one immediately when they came out for $110, but I know I seem them recently for only $90. They even come with all three size tubes! :

    And secondly, how the hell can the FUFDA be left out? At $80, it’s IMHO the best mech out there, as I believe it’s ingenious button switch assembly (the reason I stopped using mechs in the first place – always falling apart, losing springs, etc) will be the new standard. It’s just two pieces, a button and a sleeve to prevent it from falling out the bottom. And by moving the spring to the top, it’s s entirely self adjusting! It’s just awesome!


  5. I personally recently purchased a fu chai and i love it. Its a sick mod and is completely solid. It hits like a train its durable. 2 thumbs up from me.

  6. Please update the list, half are dead or the site doesn’t offer that modle/any mechanical mods anymore..
    I was looking foward to this when I got the email to this post today may 14th 2018
