Created in 2012, Vapour Art produced many superb vaping devices, some of which have already entered the annals of vape history. Today, the modder is closing its doors.
The Athens-based company and its three members Persea, Miro and George used the slogan “less is more”. Or, as Leonardo De Vinci would have said, “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. We wanted to pay homage to these three men. They may have favoured function over form but always had an eye towards creating beautiful vaping devices.
Unfortunately, mechanical mods—Vapour Art’s specialty—are no longer fashionable. Often unsafe and very expensive, they have been replaced by electronic boxes, which are much more affordable. Even if vaping with an electronic box is nice, vaping with a mechanical mod has a certain charm (plus it’s smoother to inhale). In any case, the market is king and is showing Vapour Art the door.
A full range of mechanical mods
Vapour Art’s products had interesting functions, such as the adjustable pin or the possibility of mounting any type of 18XXX battery. The conductivity was also excellent. Indeed, most electronic boxes do not have this particular feature because of the the power adjustment settings, which mech mods don’t have. Without any power adjustment setting, the potential power of a mechanical mod is based on the battery’s output minus the losses due to current flow. Consequently, the more conductivity a mech mod has, the higher the potential power. Modders were thus competing not only for manufacturing quality but also to find the best materials. This is part of the reason why some mech mods were over 200 Euros; some electronic boxes have inherited the mech mods’ stylish gold or silver plating.
