Vaping has become more than a smoking cessation aid, some people are picking it up now just to enjoy the flavor, cloud, nicotine rush or tricks.

Some unregulated mods come with circuit protections built in the chip that help avoid risky user errors, the others are mechanical so they do not have any battery or circuit protections which make them only for the very experienced vapers.
