Chipsets - you will hear this term all about the place when it comes to vaping, especially when you are choosing a new box mod. There is a wide variety of chipsets in modern devices that all have their features, and costs associated with them.
There are two major types of box mods, Mechanical (mech) or regulated, the major difference between them being the chipset. So what is a chipset and what does it do? Simply the chipset is the computer within the mod that controls everything including;
- Wattage controls; the variable wattage of the mod. Depending on the atomizer and coils, the wattage needs to be set between a range to allow for the perfect hit.
- Temperature controls; if you're running temp controllable coils (ie Stainless steel, Nickel and Titanium) you can regulate the temperature your mod is firing to have a more comfortable draw.
- Ohm reading; simply stating the power range of your coils using Ohm's Law (voltage=current/resistance)
- Battery reading; how much charge is left in your batteries
Basically streaming all this data to a screen for you to make your experience that much easier and able.
So what separates the different chipsets? A quick run down on our super popular range.
