As vapes grow in popularity so grows the need for more expensive vape mods, various flavors and other exclusive additions that can even grow up to the level of a social status symbol.
But what makes these products so special that people are willing to pay hundreds of dollars just to get their hands on them?
Let’s take a look at some of the most luxurious mods on the market, designed and manufactured for people who like to vape like kings.
Extra Luxury Class
#1 $887,000 Shisha sticks Sofia
We start our list with a ridiculously expensive vape pen. As the matter of fact, it is difficult to determine if this is a vape or a piece of jewelry. Despite the fact it’s not a vape mod, this piece of art deserves to open our chart of the most expensive vape mods and vaping devices people use.
A Russian billionaire decided to surprise his girlfriend with a unique mod and commissioned UK Shisha sticks to build an $887 000, diamond-encrusted gift.
It features a 24-carat gold button, Italian Murano glass, and 246 pieces of 2-carat diamonds. It seems that when it comes to love, some people are ready to let thousands of hundreds of dollars simply vaporize.
#2 $109,000 SX350J Dual 18650 by Magic Valley Vapors
There are no limits when it comes to 3D printing, and the best way to prove this is by printing a $109,000 vape mod.
Designed and produced by a New York company, this amazing piece of tech is intended to utilize 22mm Fat Daddy Vapes 510 connector as well as Varitube 22mm 510.
Yihicigars SX350J mini circuit board is powered by dual 18650 batteries, rechargeable via micro USB port.
#3 $10,000 Mod by Top Hat Mods
TI 26650 TOPHAT – this the name of a miracle from Tennessee that costs like a good used car. This device goes in different colors combined with wood. Titanium frame makes it look gorgeous and the comfort totally worth this price.
Vape mode PROTOTYPE P2 with Matching Drip by Top Had Mods is insanely expensive and costs only $7999.99. Even despite the fact, this device is provided in the unique wood pack the price bites.
Other products by this company vary in their prices from $50 to thousands!
#4 $3,000 Otto Carter
When the Texan firearms engraver tasks himself with crafting unique vape mods, the result is nothing but a perfectly hand-chiseled piece of art.
Otto Carter manufactures mods using brass and stainless steel and decorates the surface with most wonderful patterns. Each of Otto designs costs anywhere between $1000 and $3000 simply because of its artistic value.
#5 $2,500 Gepetto Elite V2
Polish mod designer and manufacturer Gepetto was one of the first that introduced hand-made, custom vape mods, and became an inspiration for many people to start their own production.
Elite V2 goes by a little less under $1000; however, since these mods are unique, it is really difficult to find them on the market so bidding wars often raise the price of a single unit up to $3,000-$4,000. Elite V2 is made out of handcrafted wood, with a stainless steel cylinder running through.
Regular Luxury Class
#1 $800 Duke SX
Vicious Ant is one of the most famous mod manufacturers in the world. They design and produce hand-made unique vaping gear using various materials from all over the world.
When it comes to price, Duke SX is the most affordable among these unbelievable expensive mods, with the price set at around $800. Equipped with SX350J V2 chipset, Duke SX features versatile firing mods and many safety options to make sure the user is out of the harm’s way.
It’s amazing to see how creative people can be, and how astonishing design features are available for those with deep pockets and fat wallets. However, the market is full of high-end vape mods that are closer to the budget of people with regular, non-billionaire income.
#2 $500 Boxer Mod Classic DNA250C BF Squonk Dual 20700 with Evolv DNA250C Temperature ControlVicious Ant Variant slim
When it comes to high-end vape mods, there is a special place reserved for Variant slim by Vicious Ant. Strong titanium casing promises durability and elegant look that captures the attention of everyone around. Additionally, titanium chassis makes this mod extremely lightweight.
Powerful 250W output makes Variant slim maybe the most powerful mod on the market, leaving most of its competition far behind. Large LCD display enables the user to easily navigate through the settings while using two round buttons placed just beneath the 1.3 inch OLED screen.
The price clearly depicts the luxury this mod represents, currently ranging around $500, which makes it the most expensive vape mode on our list.
- Variable Wattage: 5W-250W.
- Variable Voltage: 2.0-8.4 Volt.
- Grade 5 Titanium structure
- 30 Amp current output
- 2ohm minimum Atomizer resistance
- 3″ OLED Display
- High power output
- Durable titanium frame
- High-quality display
- It’s always annoying when a brand new product needs adjustments or soldering in order to work. Variant slim has a pinned battery connector which makes finding the proper battery somewhat an adventure.
#3 $250 Boxer Mod Classic DNA250C BF Squonk Dual 20700 with Evolv DNA250C Temperature Control
Powered by Evolv DNA250C processor, this product allows users full customization and control of their vaping experience. It doesn’t happen often to find a product with such elegant balance of power and usability. On the first look, the design is slick and elegant, with just a few intelligently placed necessary details.
Ergonomic design allows a firm grip, but it also makes control and customization very enjoyable. The central position is reserved for a small TFT display that shows all the relevant information regarding current power level, battery, and settings.
The control buttons are just below the display, making the adjustment process easy to perform while holding the mod with one hand. There’s also a mini USB socket through which mod connects to a battery charger, but it can also be used to upgrade firmware and other software adjustments.
Perhaps one of the most useful features of this mod is Reverse Polarity Protection which keeps safe both the product and the user. The list of features goes way beyond what a normal user would need, however, for the price of around $250 nothing less is expected.
- Dimensions: Approx.: 85.4mm x 59.3mm x 39.2mm ; 103g
- Output Power 1W – 200W
- Output Voltage: 0.2V – ~6.2V (dual battery configuration)
- Temperature range: 200 F – 600 F
- Nylon body
- LED 11.52mm x 20.16mm Screen; 80 x 160 pixel TFT
- 2A USB Charging
- Multiple user profiles option
- Full customization
- Wide power range
- Dual battery
- Upgradable software
- Multifunctional display
- Small size
- Perhaps the only negative side of this product is that the dual battery is sold separately. Adding extra money for what is already an expensive vape product is not what customers like to hear when they get to the cash register.
#4 $220 Yihi Sx Mini
This mod is just screaming high-tech at a first glance, even more, once it is put to use. Full-color TFT display shows multiple software options to control power level, regulate taste, and various other options this piece of vaping tech provides. Dual 18650 battery system can push up to 200W of power, generating between 212-572F depending on user settings.
Sx Mini is equipped with all the safety systems that high-end mods should include. This means reverse polarity protection, overheating and overcharging safety systems, including anty-dry burning technology that makes this mode one of the best when it comes to temperature control. Bluetooth tech allows this mod to connect to a smart device in order to upgrade software or change certain settings, even though the control joystick allows easy navigation through the menu.
The price puts Sx Mini among medium priced high-end mods, roaming around $220, which is reasonable considering what we get for the money.
- Large color display
- Control joystick for seamless navigation
- Bluetooth ready
- Temp control
- Safety systems
- In Temperature Control mode resistance has to be set manually, which could cause issues with less experienced users.
- The software looks a bit anemic.
- Side plate has Yihi owner’s name printed out, which is kind of weird thing to do.
#5 $190 Asvape Lucifer
The first thing that grabs the attention when it comes to this mode is its design. Lovely wood stabilizer with brass and stainless steel inserts shows that the design team succeeded to put together functionality, ergonomics, and aesthetics. The power of 240W comes from two batteries and the amount of unleashed power is fully adjustable. The power button is a ruby-looking gem that resembles Devil’s eye, which really goes with the name of this mod. Asvape Lucifer can take up to 28mm in diameter atomizers with no overheating risk. Coming with a price tag that orbits around $190 it is one of the reasonable priced vape mods. Add lovely design to the equation and Asvape Lucifer becomes a tempting offer to anyone who wishes to grow personal vape collection.
- Wattage output: 240W
- Voltage Output: 3.6 – 6.8V
- Minimum Atomizer Resistance Range: 0.15 ohm
- Dual 18650 Battery
- Jeweled Firing Button Potentiometer
- Sophisticated, artistic design
- Simple use
- Adjustable power
- Compatible with various atomizers
- Reasonable price
- Lack of additional features such as overheating protection and LED display is a huge misfire if we take into account the power this mod packs inside. Simple LED error indicator light is not enough for a product of this caliber.
Are expensive Vape Mods worth the money?
The consumer culture we live in today dictates that tools and products should also deliver both fashion and social status statements.
Spending hundreds of dollars on vape mods sounds both mad and perfectly reasonable for vaping enthusiasts to take great pleasure in their hobby. As some would say-You can’t put a price tag on love.
