Vape Pen Mod Starter Kit
Where to start with a Mechanical Vape Pen Mod Starter Kit?
With all the different parts and pieces to a mechanical mod starter kit, where do you get started?
At Slim Vape Pen, one of our most popular products is creating your own unique vape pen mod starter kit! Vape pen mods and mechanical mods are designed for people who are pretty experienced at vaping and who vape a lot. They take a little more expertise and knowledge than regular vape pen starter kits, so we don’t recommend them for people who are brand new to vaping. With that said, there are some really fantastic benefits to getting a vape pen mod if you do have some experience already vaping.
Vape mod starter kits offer:
- Delicious Flavor
- Massive Clouds of vapor
- An awesome vaping experience!
Vape Mod Starter Kit Durability
Vape mods tend to me more durable than regular vape pens. The batteries are built stronger, and all the parts have a bit of extra craftsmanship put in to make them last longer and withstand heavier wear. Of course, with this durability comes extra size and weight, and some people prefer a smaller vape pen that is easier to carry around and is more discreet to use. Then again, if you’re carrying around your vape pen, you may decide that having the extra durability is worth it to you. It’s just up to you.
Vape Pen Mod Starter Kits offer unparalleled flexibility and customizability
You can pick and choose your own pieces to interchange with your vape pen mod to get exactly the vaping experience you want. You can even build your own coils and add wicks made of whatever material you choose, whether you like to go all-natural with a cotton wick or love the convenience of a synthetic wick. This is an awesome feature that many vapers love. Of course, there’s a downside to this as well, and that is that you have to be pretty proficient already at vaping and taking care of your vape pen to move to the step of building parts for your vape pen. It’s an electronic gadget and if you do it wrong you could really mess it up, so it definitely takes some research and time to make sure you’re doing it right.
What does a Vape Pen Mod Starter Kit need?
- Mechanical Mod Casing
- Rebuildable Atomizer (RBA or RDA)
- IMR Batteries
- IMR Battery Charger
The Mechanical Mod Casing
The casing you decide to purchase all depends on your style of vaping and overall design. Whatever looks the best to you will ultimately be your decision in buying a casing that your batteries go in and your atomizer connects to. The casing is basically the “Mechanical Mod”. If you have a Nemesis Mod Casing, you would say “I have a Nemesis Mech Mod” with a “Whatever Tank”. There is not a huge difference in how each Mech Mod Casing performs because most of them operate the exact same way.

The Atomizer (Rebuildable Atomizer Coil – RBA or Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer – RDA)
Choosing which RBA or RDA you want with your mechanical mod starter kit is the most important choice you can make. There are huge differences between all the RBA’s and RDA’s on the market today and to understand which one you like best will depend on your style of vaping. RDA tanks or “Dripping Tanks” are very nice if you primarily stay in one spot all day where you can “Drip” your e juice onto your wick as the wick starts to dry out frequently. RDA tanks will last you 5-20 puffs before you have to drip again. RBA tanks on the other hand have tanks that you can fill up to 4-5ml of e juice that will take you an entire day to run through. Think about that, a normal bottle of e juice is 15ml and a RBA tank can hold 4-5ml, that’s a lot! Depending on your style of vaping, an RBA tank will last you anywhere from 6 hours a day to a week. Choosing your depends on your style of vaping but its important to try it all for yourself and see what you really prefer.

Getting the right batteries is also incredibly important! If you get some random no name battery from china, WATCH OUT, BE CAREFUL and don’t be stupid. On the other hand, if you choose a high quality battery like Sony or Efest you will be fine. There is really nothing extravagant or flashy about batteries but they can make or break your mechanical mod starter kit. If you have a cheap battery, you will have to swap batteries often. If you have a high quality battery on the other hand, you can use your mechanical mod starter kit all day without swapping batteries.

Wick for your Vape Pen Mod Starter Kit
Wick is something you will have to slowly test to see exactly what matches your vaping style. You have the choice to build coils with Cotton Wick, Silica Wick or Ekowool Wick. The choices for wick are all personal preference and it is important to try them all to see which one if your favorite. Cotton tends to be a little easier to work with and ekowool tends to give off a very flavorful vape, so its entirely up to your personal vape preferences on how you would like to use your vape pen mod starter kit.
