The DotMod brand emerged in 2013 and has been making waves every year since with its unique interpretation of what a vaping device can be. The brand embraces the clean, elegant lines and surfaces of a luxury automobile and infuses every one of its models with the same performance and sophistication.
DotMod mods are known for their bold, solid colors, ergonomic design, and minute touches of luxury located on each device. There are no gimmicks or kitsch on these mods, only pure vaping performance. The range of the devices stretches from disposable, prefilled vapes to pod devices and stick or tube vapes that still retain the look and feel of an actual DotMod device.
The company has also branched into the atomizer game with its wide range of tanks that feature sub-ohm atomizers to rebuildable. These new items also feature the same luxury and panache that every DotMod comes with and uses high-quality materials like ULTEM drip tips, stainless steel builds and gold-plated exteriors. But apart from looking fabulous, the devices also come with advanced chipsets that allow them such cutting-edge features as temperature control, automatic heat settings, and bypass mode.
The DotMod line-up has a lot to offer to vapers who appreciate many different styles, options, and outputs. The brand has an ever-expanding range of devices on its roster that aim to be everything to everyone with their versatile power options, control features, and exterior designs.
The dotAIO V2 is a follow-up to the previous dotAIO and now features an internal 2ml removable tank and a single 18650 battery. The device has a maximum power output of 75W and features an LED for users to adjust the mod’s settings and change its operating mode from bypass, wattage, and temperature control. The chipset also gives users the ability to adjust the vaping power based on resistance so they can choose between very soft, soft, medium, and strong.
The dotPLUS is a fully-rechargeable device with an internal 500mAh battery and a prefilled 2ml tank filled with a nicotine salt e-juice. The device is draw-activated and has no outer buttons or controls. Users can begin vaping by inhaling from the semi-transparent mouthpiece and recharging the battery via the USB port on the back of the device when the vapor production begins to wane.
The dot. Disposable is a fully-disposable device with an internal battery of 1000mAh and an e-juice pod with a 6ml capacity. The disposable is draw-activated and has no buttons or controls or displays to control the settings. The device comes prefilled with a nicotine salt e-juice that comes in several fruit-based flavors ranging from Red Apple to Peach Ice and Guava Ice.
The MRKT Bars are a collaboration between dotMod and MRKT Place that features a fully-rechargeable internal battery and a pre-filled 10ml e-juice pod. The device is draw-activated and requires no setup or filling. The device features several flavors and comes filled with a 50mg nicotine salt solution.
The dotStick is an all-in-one device with an internal 1650mAh battery that offers vapers three different power settings based on their installed coil. The device has a single, gold-plated operating button and features a 2ml tank atop the mod. The tank has a gold-trim, knurled edge that makes it easy to remove from the 510-spring-loaded pin. Users can install any of the two coils included in the kit that range from a 0.4ohm mesh coil to a 0.7ohm mesh coil.
The dotRDA is a single-coil, 22mm (0.86 inches) diameter atomizer from dotmod. The dotRDA’s build deck features flat, postless design with two lead terminals. Users can use the top-screw hex screws to secure the leads into the deck. The outer cap of the RDA has a flared design at the top, where users can install their 510 drip tip.
The kit includes two top caps made either from solid aluminum or a frosted, acrylic that gives the dotmod added flair. The top caps also come with either a 510 aluminum drip tip or an 8mm ULTEM drip tip for a different draw experience. The base of the deck features 24k gold-plated brass and has two airflow vents that blow directly onto the coils.
The dotCoils are compatible with all dotMod atomizers but are specifically designed for use with the dotAIO that has an internal 2ml tank. Users can install the coils when the included coils run out. The coils are all-brass and come in two different resistances, 0.3ohms and 0.7ohms.
The brand is known internationally and is available at most fine online and brick-and-mortar vape retailers. But you can also buy directly from the company as its website features all the brand’s products and all its different versions, like colors for the mods, flavor or nicotine strengths for the disposable and accessories.
The current PACT Act regulations can make it difficult for some people to receive products via the mail. Still, the brand has already established shipping routes with various carriers to ensure it can reach its customers domestically and internationally. In addition, customers are responsible for all shipping costs and can choose their preferred shipping method at the checkout.
The brand has a very strict policy regarding its warranty and does not offer returns, exchanges, or refunds on any of its items. However, there are certain conditions where a customer can return a malfunctioning or defective item if all other requirements are met, such as there was no tampering or attempt to modify the item.
For example, you can return an item by reaching out to the company directly and letting them know the reasons and circumstances for returning the item. All customers are responsible for shipping and handling, but the company will accept returns only under certain circumstances. However, all dotmod devices come with a limited lifetime warranty, so they stand behind the quality of their products.
How It Treats It Customers
Most of the online reviews about Dotmod deal with the brand’s devices rather than the way they treat their customers. They are mostly positive reviews and detail the way the mods perform, which are often above and beyond many other similar mods. Many vapers rave about the company’s unique look and design of their products, which are also high-performing and advanced, so they have substance and style.
Lost Vape is another high-end vape manufacturer that has gained a reputation for high-performing devices with cool exterior designs. The Lost Vape line-up also features a wide range of mods from pod devices to high-powered, triple-18650 mega mods with advanced chipsets.
In addition, the brand regularly collaborates with DNA to create their devices, which feature cutting-edge technology like the Escribe program that gives users customizable vaping options.
SMOKTech, most often referred to as SMOK, is one of the oldest vaping companies that has been in the business for a long time. The brand has been at the forefront of many vaping developments like temperature control, dual-18650 devices, and outsized tank atomizers with quad-coil technology.
The design aesthetic of SMOK devices is all over the place, however. Hence, not many devices are automatically recognizable as SMOK, but they still hold up well today and have many fans worldwide.
Are Dotmod devices good mods?
The answer is entirely subjective, many people have good things to say about the brand’s mods, but vapers are very picky about what they consider “high-end” or “good.” The company has a particular brand, and they put a lot of effort into maintaining that brand while also making mods that perform well.
The coils for the AIO device are included in the kit, one having a resistance of 0.3ohms and the other being 0.7ohms. There is a separate coil that is MTL and has a resistance of 1.6ohms, while a coil adapter in the kit also allows users to attach any Nautilus BVC coil to the tank.
How do I find my Dotmod serial number?
The serial number for every authentic dotMod device can be found on the side of the packaging, where there is a security number. The last four digits of the serial number can be scratched off so users can see it for themselves.

Conclusion: DotMod Brand Review: A Range of Mods That Have Style and Substance
Have you ever used or seen one of the brand’s mods? What do you think about their style? Do you think they just look good but don’t perform well? Let us know in the comments section below.
DotMod has managed to capture vapers’ attention with their slick, stylish devices, even though much of the vaping community is split on whether they qualify as “high-end, high-performance” mods. The price of the devices is also another sticking point for many vapers who do not mind paying more for a device but only if its performance is worth it.
The brand has extended its product line throughout the years, developing disposable devices and easy-to-use AIOs aimed at the casual vaper over expert and long-time vapers. It strives to be more accessible and gives users many options regarding styles like DL and MTL but still stays true to its mission of creating one-of-a-kind vaping pieces that look great.

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.
