As much as the masses are picking up inexpensive pod mods, the growth of the high power Vapers is as heavy as ever. This year we’ve seen some incredible vape gear that begin at 200W and rise up to 300W. Most entries fall in the sweet spot of 220-230 Watts, and most of our Nominees fit right in that area.

While High Performance, Mesh Coiled Sub-Ohm Tanks requires a lot less than 200W, there are still a whole lot of Vapers with RDA’s, RTA’s, RDTA’s and a few high wattage sub-ohm tanks that need the power.

The following are the 200W and above Mods (and Kits) we believe earned the Awards for Quality, Performance, and Value.

Best High Wattage Mod Awards Spinfuel VAPE

1st Place Winner: REV-TECH PHANTOM 220W

Award Winning

Rev-Tech Phantom Spinfuel VAPE AwardsAfter having some positive but reserved feelings about the REV-Tech GTS and Nitro mods, I was floored by how great the Phantom setup turned out to be. It might be a little larger than some of its competitors, and the racing/car-inspired design isn’t for everyone, I kept looking for reasons not to like this kit, and I came up empty every time.  Buy with confidence – REV-Tech isn’t playing around, and the industry should take notice.

Spinfuel VAPE Review

The Vaporesso LUXE 220W Box Mod integrates one of the most intelligent onboard technology, boasting Insta-Fire with an activation speed of 0.001s and Super Player Mode, a broad resistance range that is meant to be adaptive to most of the industry’s tanks and mesh tanks. The high-end design caters to the breathtaking 2.0″ TFT Full-Color display with vibration-enabled buttons for tactile feedback. Pairing with the LUXE 220W is the performance-focused Vaporesso SKRR Sub-Ohm Tank, featuring a staggering 8mL eJuice capacity, child-proof top-fill method, and the utilization of the QF Coil System. The Vaporesso SKRR Tank adopts the newly introduced Quadflow (QF) Air Distribution System, in which air channels enters the atomizer core and spread internally in four direction. This results in a more optimized airflow for dense clouds while maintaining a smooth delivery and prevents spit-back along with leak-free design. The Vaporesso QF Coil System utilizes the combination of cotton and flax materials for a long-lasting yet flavor-enhanced performance with the following coil options: 0.18ohm QF Meshed and 0.18ohm QF Strip.

VAPORESSO POLAR

NOMINEE

Spinfuel VAPE Awards Vaporesso PolarThe Vaporesso Polar made it on the Awards list for its stunning display, it’s amazing performance, and its beautiful balance in the hand. The Polar is one of those vape mods you want in every color offered. It’s a great 220W medium sized fully featured beauty. And when you buy the starter kit model you’ll receive a special edition Cascade Sub-Ohm Tank that is definitely one of the top performers. Sadly the SE Cascade is not available as a standalone tank. 2018 was a VERY good year for Vaporesso!

Spinfuel VAPE Review

The Vaporesso Polar 220W Starter Kit is a modern mod that features the upgraded Omni Board 4.0 chipset, a vibrant 2.0″ OLED display, and strikingly futuristic design to pair with the new Cascade Baby SE Tank. The Polar is capable of 5-220W output range, resistance range of 0.03-5ohm, and various firing modes. Capable of different user modes, temperature control abilities, and functions, the Polar’s Omni Board 4.0 chip allows for Super Player Mode, a broad resistance range that is meant for most of the industry’s tanks. In addition, an “Insta-fire” mode cuts the activation speed to 0.001s, meaning rapid flavor and taste, from the first breath to the last. The Polar 220W Starter Kit is powered by a pair of 18650 batteries, which can be accessed via a magnetic door. Important data is displayed on the 2.0″ TFT color screen, relaying info such as temperature or wattage, battery life, and voltage. Optimized with a 2.5A max charge capability , the Vaporesso Polar is sure to spend more time in use than charging. The kit is paired with the Cascade Baby SE Tank, featuring 6mL maximum juice capacity, triple slotted airflow control, and the utilization of the GT Coil System.
