JAC Vapour is very pleased to announce that we are adding a range of advanced products with more experienced vapers in mind. Designed to complement our existing ranges, these new products will enable current customers to upgrade to something a bit more powerful, while offering the chance for users to dip their toes in to the world of sub-ohm vaping.
All products are ‘Backed by JAC – Tested and Approved’ ensuring the same high JAC Vapour quality you’ve come to expect.
Variable Wattage Mods
First up are three Variable Wattage box mods, which pack plenty of punch in a small form factor. The SMOK Xpro M50 is the first to be available, with the Cloupor Mini and Kamry 20 coming soon. They offer a range of power options which will suit most users’ needs. All three share a small footprint, and will work with a wide range of 510 tanks, including the increasingly popular sub-ohm models.
For the traditionalists, we’ve also added the SMOK Guardian 2, another VW device. The 15W Guardian 2 adopts the design elements of a real-wood tobacco pipe and brings them right up to date.
Variable Wattage devices offer a great deal more power over smaller cigalike or eGo style e-cigs. This additional power can be fine-tuned by the user so that they can find the settings that work for them, and which offer the best balance of heat, throat hit and vapour production. The big advantage of a VW device is that once the ideal wattage has been found, the mod will automatically set the voltage required to produce said wattage, no matter which resistance of atomiser is used. This means that you can easily swap between tanks without having to adjust your settings.
For fans of mechanical mods, we have two to choose from. The SMOK Magneto 3 is a telescopic tube mod, which is compatible with IMR 18350, 18500 and 18650 batteries. This stainless steel device looks and feels solid in the hand, and will pair up nicely with just about any 22mm tank.
In addition, we are also offering the SMOK Prospect mechanical pipe mod, which features the same solid construction, but in a more traditional form factor.
Mechanical mods are suited to much more advanced users, as a good knowledge of battery limits is required in order to use them safely. A mechanical mod does not contain any safety mechanisms or electronics of any kind, and are operated by pushing a mechanical switch in order to complete the circuit required to fire the atomiser. As these devices do not offer any form of power regulation, available power is dictated by the battery which is used in conjunction with the resistance of the atomiser.
With so many new devices available, we’ve also branched out and have a number of new tanks designed to enable users to get the most from them.
The SMOK VCT is a large, 22mm sub-ohm tank, which offers a number of different coil types to choose from, all with their own advantages. These include the A1 coils, with variable e-liquid feed control, and the more traditional X2, which features dual, organic cotton wick, horizontally mounted coils. It also has an RBA deck and Nichrome core options.
The incredibly popular Kanger Subtank Mini (22mm) and Nano (18.5mm) are also available, which use Kanger’s organic cotton heads, as well as a removable RBA deck in the case of the Mini.
Rounding out the range of sub-ohm tanks is the Aspire Atlantis, a solid and attractive 22mm tank, which uses Aspire’s bottom vertical coil technology to provide massive vapour production.
Sub-ohm vaping refers to using coils which are rated at less than 1.0Ohm. Most of the pre-built coils available for sub-ohm tanks are rated at around 0.5Ohm, but vapers who choose to build their own are able to produce coils at even lower resistances.
Sub-ohm coils produce much more heat when fired, which in turn increases vapour production and throat hit. More vapour does mean that e-liquid will be used at a faster rate, however. Due to the power demands of sub-ohm coils, not all devices will be capable of firing them safely, if at all. Ego style batteries, for instance, will be unable to fire coils rated at lower than 1.5Ohm, while our Series-E batteries will be unsuitable for coils any lower than around 1.2Ohm.
To get the most from sub-ohm tanks, a VW or mechanical mod is advised.
What’s a mod without a battery? In tandem with the new devices on offer, JAC Vapour is also introducing our own range of High Drain IMR batteries. 18350, 18500, 18650 and 26650 models will be available shortly, in a variety of specifications.
Of particular interest will be our IMR18650 2500mAh 20A cell, which offers plenty of headroom for even experienced sub-ohm vapers.
IMR batteries are used in a large number of devices, and come in a range of sizes and specifications. At the smaller end of the scale there are 18350 models, typically used in pipe-style mods, while at the other end there are the giant 26650 cells, which offer massive battery life but are generally only required for very large devices.
When working with IMR batteries, it’s essential that you are aware of its safe operating limits. Batteries are capable of working to a certain amperage limit, which should not be exceeded. For further information, take a look at the dedicated battery safety page on our website.
All of these new products are available individually, or as part of specially discounted bundles. Please, take a look and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our ever-helpful customer support team.
