Regulated box mods, chip sets, and you!

What is a regulated box mod?

A regulated box mod is the most powerful type of vaporizer. Box mods get their name from their box-like shape, which allows them to hold a larger internal battery or multiple batteries. This feature provides the user with more power and longevity. These mods incorporate a chip set; allowing the user to customize their experience with the option to adjust wattage, change working mode, and customization of the interface. A regulated box mods chip also adds several layers of protection for user safety.

What is a chip set?

A chip set is the set of electronic components that manage the data flow within the mod and process its power. This is what keeps the box mod's voltage regulated to protect both the device and user as well as provide quality performance. The chip set directly measures and limits the temperature of the heating coil. 

Chip sets also provide a much more advanced experience by allowing for temperature control, wattage control, preheating, and digital user controls. 

Examples of different chip sets:


The DNA chips, by Evolv, are the top notch chip set of the vaping world. This chip set has continually over-exceeded expectations providing a premium experience with luxury materials. This chip has cell monitoring features, extended output range, boost mode and replay, and a temperature control suite, but what really sets them apart from the rest of the group is Evolv's EScribe Program. Through this software, Evolv provides patented wattage control, temperature control, preheating, and digital user controls. Because of this program, DNA chips are currently the most popular chip in the vaping market with a 97% power efficiency rating. Ramp-up time for devices with a DNA chip is said to be close to nothing, therefore making it effective as soon as you fire.


Thought to be the next most popular chip set, it does not fail to impress. YiHi chip sets are known for being easy to fine tune and manually set up through the built on board system. In the single-battery driven market, Yihi is said to be the best with a more than impressive and powerful performance nonetheless. These chips feature a sophisticated algorithmic calculation that allows users to set 5 output curves. The YiHi chips also utilize buck-boost technology with 94% efficiency. This technology allows for voltage and short protection. A handful of YiHi chips also have a TFT color display screen.



The Gene chip set is used in VooPoo products. It has an outstanding temperature control suite, flavor settings for an emphasis on flavor production, and cloud settings for maximum power for maximum cloud production. They also feature a fireproofing bridge to block out liquid, dust, or burnout. This chip has an extremely fast firing speed as well as produces an intense and flavorful hit. The ramp up time for this chip is a huge selling point as well. The Gene chip set is also much more affordable than some of its competitors. 

The key benefits of box mods with chip sets include: 

  • temperature control 
  • adjustable VV/VW
  • higher power output
  • battery life
  • battery safety, including short protection
  • atomizer resistance cut off
  • over/under voltage protection
  • buck and boost technology
  • on board charging option - ***though, here at Vapor DNA we suggest the use of external battery chargers as a safety precaution


If you want the most powerful type of vaporizer, pick out a regulated box mod. When choosing a box mod, keep in mind there are a plethora of different chip sets to choose from depending on your needs, so do your research, compare and contrast, and find what is best for you. You can choose to invest in something a little less intricate, or get as detailed as you want, even to the point of a Bluetooth chip set.
