Hybrid-Styled Mod

[Pronunciation:/ˈhʌɪbrɪd/stʌɪl/mɒd/]


Hybrid-styled mods are mechanical mods which have been designed to give the look of a true hybrid mod with the additional functionality of being able to be used with a wider variety of toppers as they use a threaded hold (usually a 510 threaded hole) to attach the topper to the battery tube. As they do not have a proper connection like the 510 connection you would see on most mechanical mods, the positive pin on the topper will make direct contact with the top of the battery below. This adds an extra consideration above those which must be made for and mechanical when it comes to choosing an appropriate topper; you must be absolutely sure the outer negative threads on your topper can never come into contact with the positive on your battery, which means only ever using toppers with a protruding, un-sprung center pin.

 

Not to be confused with true hybrid mods, which have dedicated toppers designed to make contact directly with the battery and, generally are used with a particular battery tube they’re designed for.

Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
