Not a mechanical box mod
Obviously has a charge board which would be enough to make it non mechanical, no doubt it has some basic protection circuitry as well.
Just because it has no variable wattage/voltage controls or display it doesn't make it mechanical.

@ staff : a mechnical mod has NO WIRES & certainly no circuitry or on board charging.

Come on FT, isn't it about time you employed dedicated personnel to cover vape products who are actually knowledgeable in the field of vaping? So many products are being mislabeled & corrected by Us (fasttech customers).
This is not an ideal way to run a business whose sales are primarily vape related.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what's inside ...

So that tank is only worth $3.68?? :) Replacement coils will work out more than that won't they?

btw you mentioned something about room for a squonk bottle, are you considering modding one of these? Could be quite the gem if it were possible.

A metal plate or a round wire, make no difference.
Wires must be linked to the other parts mecanically for it to be called a mecanical contraption.

Even "soldered" is debatable.
If you were to cut a mech metal plate in half and solder it back together, would that make the mod non mech if you were to put it back in the mod ?
Soldered was still considered a mechanical joint the last time i checked.

Wait is it debatable or not-debatable, I don't follow.

I'm a mech purist at heart, but nowadays if it's a mechanical switch, it seems to be a mech.

Back in the day if you put a 10a fuse in your mech mod or a protected battery in a mech, was it not still a mech?

Some vapers seem to have appropriated the word "mechanical" and changed the definition to something that do not include wires or solder.
Even if they could be/are mechanical links and joints.

The "debatable" part is about if it is OK or not to bend the definition of what is mechanical and how far it should be bent.

A fuse is mechanical if it is'nt a semi conductor one.
It is just a piece of metal that blow up when too much current flow through it.

To really be a pure mecanical contraption, the power source need to also be mechanical.
A battery is electrical, protected or not.
That make mechs hybrid devices.

If not mechanical, so what is it?

Doesn't need to be mountains out of mole hills. I think it was defined more so by the early manufacturers than vapers and just stuck. Among the varying definitions, this 'mechanical' refers to the mechanical movement, à la mechanical gears, pulleys and levers. Tube mods with buttons that are forced upwards, creating a contact. Mechanical movement. I'd say 'semi-mechanical' was coined as such by people who made DIY mods. At least by noting it's a semi-mechanical it's giving a heads up to customers, between the obvious differences of what's inside.
Resistance is not futile, it's V/I

a mod ?

:)

As fasttech have now listed it, so kudos to them.


Can anyone think of additional distinguishing features to the 6 categories below?

1/ Temp Controlled VW/VV mod
2/ VW/VV mod
3/ Mod : Has some form of circuitry from the basic mosfet & wiring to more complicated set ups yet no screen readout other than simple indicators
4/ Potentiometer mod (could be listed with category 3)
5/ Semi-mechanical mod : Any form of wiring used to complete a circuit, soldered or otherwise.
6/ Mechanical mod : No wires or circuitry or soldered points.

Much simpler :

"Regulated" or "Electronic mod" for everthing that have electronic in it.
"Regulated" actually being use for mods that don't just have only a mosfet.
TC/VV/VW used to differenciate the capabilities of regulated devices.

#5 and #6, "Mech mod" for all 'electrical only' mods would be fine together imo.
I do understand "mechanical mod" have long been associated to mods that only have an electrical circuit and a high amps capable mechanical switch.

But wires and solders are not electronic componants.
You can build an electrical circuit using huge plates pressed together instead of wires, it won't make it mechanical.

Why wires should be excluded ?
The conductor shape don't change its purpose.
A thick copper wire will always be better than a thin chinesium plate anyway.

And solder is always preferable to press contacts, i really don't understand why some peoples frown upon it.

Btw, #4 is usually VV
