Tube mods are a step-up in terms of power and cloud output from smaller, slimmer e-cigarettes and vape pens. Tube vape mods have greater battery capacity as well as voltage output and can match more advanced box mods in terms of customization. These mods also pair with larger e-juices tanks thanks to their wide builds.

This device is ideal for novice and experienced vapers. It is both intuitive and has many of the advanced features of bigger mods. Its suitedness for all kinds of vapers puts it at the top of the list.
The Drag S’s features make it superior to many of its competitors. Examples of these specifications include the 2,500 mah battery, the pod’s 4.5 ml juice capacity, and the PNP coils.
0.4-ohm mesh coils for sub-ohm vapers and standard 1-ohm coils for those that prefer e-cigs

The Titan X Hybrid is the ultimate all-in-one vape pen, providing a comfortable experience to vapers of all kinds. It’s a tube-style mod with a single button for vapor production, and it comes with a couple of different coils for different styles of vaping. The 0.4-ohm mesh coil provides fairly large clouds with fantastic flavor, and their smoothness is perfect for direct-to-lung vaping, while the normal 1-ohm coil will be better suited to mouth-to-lung vapers.
It’s built very well, and the stainless steel build gives it a sleek, robust aesthetic. It comes with a standard 510 connection, so the tank is interchangeable.
510-threaded connection to use with your other tanks

Sturdy, durable exterior build
Simple, one-button control
Good battery life
No variable settings
The SMOK Vape Pen V2 starter device pairs a tube-like battery with a 510-threaded sub-ohm tank that can hold up to 3ml of e-liquid. The tank also uses removable coils, two of which are included in the kit. The device has simple one-button operation and it has an internal capacity of 1600mAh. The battery section comes outfitted with a Micro USB charging port and it can output a maximum of 60W of direct voltage output.
The Vaporesso Sky Solo vape pen is an all-in-one device that combines a 1500mAh battery with a sub-ohm tank at the top. The 4.5ml tank also has a threaded top cap to give users an easy filling method. The kit also features two GT mesh coils that are both rated at 0.18ohms. The Sky Solo tank also has an adjustable airflow control ring so users can choose their preferred airflow setting. The unit comes equipped with the Axon chipset that gives the device a lot of safety protections and consistent performance.
Reasons to Get This Device:
You want a tube-mod with advanced features
You want a device that has an integrated design (tank and mod together)
You want a device that is easy-to-use and assemble
You want a reliable, 510-threaded battery for use with other tanks
This is an All In One tube mod that features a built-in tank to avoid leaks. It is a top fill design, though so expect an easy and mess free refill.
Making this an All In One kit are the two drip tips, one, a Spiral Drip Tip, for MTL (mouth to lung) and a Glass Drip Tip for DTL (direct to lung).
The coils included are 0.6 Ohm, but they can be swapped out for coils up to 1.5 Ohm for standard vaping. Airflow can be adjusted according to the vape needed.
It may not be the ideal choice for cloud chasers, but stealth vapers will love the flavors out of this tube mod.
A 2ml tank is decent sized and a 1,500 mAh battery can keep a charge most of the day with normal puffing.
This tube mod from Cthulhu is an ergonomic and straightforward semi-mechanical mod compatible with single 18650/18350 batteries with two venting holes to keep them cool. It uses a dual Mosfet chip that enables the vape to run on ultra-low resistances. The mod should look good with atomizers between 22 and 24 mm in diameter.
The Tauren Hybrid from ThunderHead Creations is one of the world’s first two-in-one mech mods to feature smart protection and full mechanical mode.
The removable X-Chip allows the user to control power output, and removing it takes it into mechanical mode. This vape is compatible with 18650, 20700, and 21700 batteries, which allow it to run longer on mechanical mode.
Another cool feature is the ball-shaped firing button that allows for 360-degree contact.
A tube mod is a hybrid between a cig-a-like vape pen and some features of the best box mods. It is thin and shaped like a tube, so it is a bit wider than a vape pen and has much more power.
Why Use a Tube Mod?
Tube mods are as easy to use as a vape pen but offer up more power and also, in many cases, more control over a vape session.
Regulated tube mods (we will go into the difference between regulated and unregulated mods in a moment) are safe to use. They can range from 20Watts to 60 Watts of power generally, and some tube mods will automatically adjust the power according to the coils used.
Tube mod vapes are usually great at mouth-to-lung vaping, but can also be used for some sub-Ohm direct-to-lung vaping.
What Are the Best Tube Mods?
This is highly dependent on how much experience the vaper has, what kind of vaping they are looking for and what their general habits are. Ie will they be vaping on the go? Looking to cloud chase? Discreet stealth vape?
We will go through a list of the top tube vape mods and highlight what makes them different so it is easier to decide which is the best, or, more accurately, the right one.
Regulated Mods vs Unregulated Mods
A regulated tube mod has a built-in circuit board that regulates the current. An unregulated tube mod does not have a circuit board, and the current goes straight to the atomizer.
The advantages of using regulated mods are:
Ability to adjust wattage, voltage, and resistance
Battery life is longer because the power is regulated
Most come with interactive screens that make them easy to use
But unregulated mods deliver higher power levels to the atomizer, resulting in more vapor output. However, even the best-unregulated tube mod is challenging to use and has no safety features. Therefore, only vapers with advanced knowledge of batteries and electricity should use them. But learning how to use them is worth it!
How to Buy the Best Tube Mod
Every tube mod has different features and functions and differing levels of quality.
The best thing to do is write down a list of features you want before buying anything. Also, write a list of features you do not want.
Afterward, look around on the internet and write down all the vapes that have the desired features. Then, go to a brick-and-mortar store and have a first-hand look.
Buy whichever one is best.
Another thing to do is read reviews written by people who have actually used them. There are plenty of reviews in print and on YouTube.
Read and watch as many as possible.
The Benefits of Using Tube Mods
There are two primary benefits: comfort and ergonomics.
First, tube mods are not as boxy as box mods, making them more comfortable to hold. Secondly, their shape makes them more convenient to transport.
The other benefit is that they have most of the same features as regulated and unregulated box mods. Only they are more comfortable and transportable.
Another benefit is battery life. Most tube mods use 18650s or 20700/21700s. These batteries are better because they generally last longer and are replaceable. Even mods that use single 18650 that last only a few hours give more vaping time because they can be easily swapped out.
Verdict on What Is the Best Regulated Tube Mod
This list is from being exhaustive, but it should shed some light on the various types of regulated tube mods for every style of vaper out there. We didn’t even touch on vaping 18650 tube mod or 26650 tube mod systems, but feel like this is a good list to get a newbie started on vaping with tube mods.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
