Here is my ugliest put together mod. However i still use it bc i also have the smok voice control which is ugly and has terrible production.
I know the deadline was today so I hope I'm not too late. I have been through so many mods. I am the queen of dropping mods. Or slinging them across the room by accident if I'm walking swinging my arms holding my mod. I have Multiple Sclerosis that gives me nerve damage all over my body, but especially my hands and feet. Often I don't feel what is in my hands and grip tight enough, and what I'm holding ends up on the floor. I have gone through at least 30 mods. None of the mods in the photos works. Every one of the tanks is Missing pieces. The swivel tops on the Smok tanks usually don't last long at all, same with the hinge battery door style mods. The door always breaks off. I went through 4 Smok Aliens before I finally stopped buying that style. I had a Vaporesso Revenger, but that just stopped working altogether. I buy tank glass by the 10 pack and go through them quickly. I had the 100w Geekvape Aegis and managed to break even that. The way it broke is a long story, but it was due to dropping it. I started buying stick mods because they are cheaper. Two of them even had the non-removable bottom pop off. The v9 Max stopped working the day after I bought it. The glass broke and the bottom popped off in one drop. Never worked again. The Vaporesso Armour Pro worked for a few weeks, but only because I taped the door on every day with shipping tape. Then it stopped working. I've used some crazy looking tanks. All of the Smok Resa products of mine were so ugly because the carbon fiber looking parts break off in pieces. I wish I had pictures of my sorrier looking mods, but I never thought I'd need to keep them for anything. I just hadn't gotten around to tossing these safely. Also, I use coils until they are totally black and gross to save money so I included a few of those. I also included my new Smok Nova that's been in a protective silicone case. Hope you enjoyed! Sorry for the long email.
I’m a loyal Eightvape customer and I have an ugly mod situation going on. I could definitely use some charitable assistance. I have an old style VooPoo Drag 157 with a Fireluke MeshPro tank.
Besides the horrible beating the box has taken, I’d like to draw attention to the tank. (I’m on my 4th replacement glass;) Not to mention the jagged drip tip that cuts my lip when I’m using it and it doesn’t even fit all the way in to the opening!
Here is my AL85 mod. It's been through the ringer and still working. Burns through coils in 24 hours or less. Paint. Color is basically nonexistent. Some say it's ugly. I say it has character.
This is what happens when your husky is in his beginning stage of training to be a therapy dog and thinks it's a good idea to make my tank, mod, and batteries an afternoon snack. thankfully he was ok afterwards. But we both learned a valuable lesson that day lol. I'm happy to say that recently he graduated from his training and became my therapy dog and hasn't touch anything again.
Not sure why I kept this pioneer IPV6…not only did all the paint peel off but when it broke it took the bottom of a smok big baby with it…part of the pin from the tank is stuck inside the mod making them both unusable. This happened in the middle of a shift at work(with no backup) and pretty much ruined my whole day.
This is a 7 year old Vamo with an antique nautilus.
I’m trying to wean my nicotine down to quit after a decade vaping. All the MTL devices I keep buying keep breaking with the exception of this ancient monolith.
My wife and I just had our first child so money's tight. I started vaping in 2009 at Good Prophets in Stevens PA, one of the first brick and mortars in the nation. I started working at shops eventually working my way up to store manager to district manager to full partner. I moved across state lines to help get another store open in 2017 and I discovered my partner was committing tax fraud and wire transfer fraud, so I dissolved myself from the business. Now I work in CNC, ha. Once that happened to started tapering. I was on 24mg in a crown 3 (don’t ask lol) now I’m down to 3 in this old beast, just trying to get across the finish line.
Ever pixel is dead on my screen but it still works cant justify buying a new one right now, and i have to use velcro to keep the battery cover working, please let me win lol.
This is my voopoo drag mini . Not even 2 months old yes . It was originally black as you can tell from where the fire buttons are at. It been Been drooped and cracked and brushed to bare metal
I've been rocking this joybo reuleaux rx200 for like 5 years now. This thing is a ugly big ol beast. It's gone through a few tanks, multiple rda's, 12 batteries and it finally gave out a few months ago. It was quite the mod and I probably dropped it a dozen time or more. And this damn smok v8 babybeast has held up since shortly after I got the mod. Though I have replaced the glass multiple times. Now it leaks and the coils misfire randomly. Please help me out.
I have never owned any mod or tank since I bought this mod and tank a few years back its ugly but works like a champ ! ! I stick 100 watt with Atlantis 2 tank hahahaha
Would be nice to win so I can get a new mod I am raising 2 kids and don’t really have the money to spend on a new mod but vaping has got me off cigarettes and probably saved my life being smoked 1-2 packs a day
Either way this is a fun contest !!
Thanks guys !
hello people. My name is Victor.
How about this atrocity!!!
Was traveling on the bus nothing uglier than a broken tank with no backup at all massive sucks.
This is my first rebuildable at I bought back in 2014. Its cramped and difficult to build on. The airflow was shit so I drilled more holes. I always have have to push down the center pin to make it fire. A fixed 510 is a pain in the ass and it is hybrid UNSAFE!! The best compromise is a spring loaded 510. My beat up hohm slice fit the bill perfectly. I just looked at some pics online and realized I have had the barrel upside down for 5 years! Maybe I'll flip it over and change out the crusty o rings while I'm at it!!!
This Maraxus looked so cool when I bought it. Now it just looks like a worn out POS... I honestly don’t even remember what RDA this is, probably a patriot clone it so old.
My ugly mod is my “limited edition” 3M Stentorian Ram. I dropped it a couple of months ago and it broke diagonally across the back and was easy to tape back together. My wife and I had been saving for vacation and I didn’t want to spend the money on a new mod so it worked for the time being. A few days before we left I dropped the mod again and it went from being in 3 pieces to 7. I found some spray adhesive and crazy strong packing tape at work and somehow got it back together. If I win I’ll purposely drop it for a third time, not put it back together again and get something that isn’t head together by tape.
You asked for the worst vape, but brace yourselves, I don't know if you are prepared for the horrors that follow. Meet my completely-electrically-safe vape that's been trucking along for over a year now. First notice the battered (borderline abused) metal exterior of the Smok AL85:
This Drag has been DRAGGED!
I had this since they first came out!
Here's my first ever mod haha. Still kicking it.
So for my vape, I have a drag and a HorizonTech Arco 2. It started out really pretty, but since then it's been through the ringer.
First thing that happened was that the Arco is a fickle tank. After a day or two into the life of the coil, the vacuum in the tank becomes to great for the coil to suck in liquid, the result is a dry hit.
I like the tank, but you have to open and close the tank after each hit. I guess doing that loosened the screws in the threading, because they started to come undone. I got a glasses repair kit and screwed the sucker in every few days, if I didn't, the result was the tank would come out, along with the metal piece at the top. After a while, the screws got stripped. To solve this, I superglued the inside of the piece to the rest of the mod. It wasn't a permanent solution, because I have to do it once a week, and now it's just become a mess.
I dropped it several times and the drip tip shattered. The solution? To buy a new drip tip. However, I thought I had a 510 hole and so I ordered a 510 tip. Well it turned out I had an 810. The solution? I superglued the tip to the tank.
I dropped it once more and that drip tip shattered, so I had to superglue all the fragments together like a vase.
After all those drops, the magnet in the mod's plate wore down, until I lost it on a bus. So I used a plate from my last, black mod, which is why it's black.
I often forget my vape is in my lap 🤷🏻♂️
Here is my very loved and very well used mod. Have had it for years and use it all day every day. I’ve been vaping for over 7 years now. Love the tobecco tank and coils! They seem to last forever but are hard to find (lucky I find them at EightVape) no stores carry them anymore. I replaced my tank a couple months ago through your site and dropped it shortly after. Tip didn’t make it. Sad day. :( Hard to fill with not much to grip on the top to twist it open. Hah! My eLeaf doesn’t always work (have to work with it) and my batteries are so old they take around 5 hours+ to charge and last for about 1/2 to 1/3 tank of juice or less. Used to only need one or two batteries a day. Now I carry around 5 bad batteries and hope I make it home for the day to charge before they’re all dead. Definitely could use some new parts. He’s not hanging on by much but I love the old guy.
Mine is just sad....
This is a mod I took from my moms Megan’s list ass boyfriend n attempted to fix got it to work for a day used erasers as the buttons then realized there’s no charge attached to the chipset.
Another mod I have this one has seen it’s final days or has it? Going to attempt to turn this old torch into a vape, minus the gas chamber of course
My ugliness, and my mod setup too lol. When I decided to stop smoking, a buddy told me about vaping. I had no clue about anything to do with vaping.... and this is what happens when you don’t ask for help. I left it in my car all day on a Tennessee summer day. The juice started out clear, and by Gods graces it didn’t vent or anything. I do have knowledge of vaping and a nice setup I bought from you guys. But I could really really use the EightVape cash to get something really nice...would really love a Topside..hint hint lol.
It does work and believe it or not it does work! This is just one I can't throw away, even though it's old, the way to change settings it like working on an old C prompt computer I still hang onto it. Hey it's stealthy so it stays and NO you can't borrow it!
This is my first mod that would do over 30 watts, I think it's an IPV mini, but it's been so long I cant remember the full name now.
When you are broken and all you have is 2 broken mods and a roll of electrical tape you end up with this. It was named Franken Chicken wing.
This is my original Alien 220 that I started vaping with. Has seen its better days but still working. This beast has to be the winner.
She’s old and has been to heck and back still works but can’t even give it away lol
My name is Brandon and I present the ugliest mod you will ever see a rx200 that has been painted multiple times and still hasn’t helped it with a original velocity rda without the airflow control because I lost it 🤷🏼♂️ Thank you for the opportunity! Fingers crossed. These photos were the attempts of painting it to make it look “better” didn’t work to well
The I stick 50 watt was my second MOD i put this thing through hell! lol it's held together with tape, and it would fall apart if i took the rubber case off! It still works believe it or not! This device was a huge factor to me quitting smoking!
This is my “ugly” vape. She’s a trooper though. She still works, but I have upgraded. I cannot seem to trash her. She was so good to me being my first mod from a vape pen after I quit smoking. No glass, paint chipping off the tank, and as you can see I wore the color plum off the mod 🤣. She may not be the ugliest, or the nastiest picture you receive, but she sure is taken a beating and still alive!
It is almost impossible for me to find coils for this thing but I still do. Also it only works half of the time! I am really wanting to upgrade to something new because i know it will help me help me quit smoking better.
Was able to get a kangertech sub mod from a local (OVERPRICED) store so I can STOP smoking cigarettes!!! Has it maybe 3 weeks and the thread connection doesn’t work! It has to be half loose for it to fire at all! AND it’s leaked from day one!! Of course it’s on old piece (I was totally taken by the shop). This momma (single) needs help with a decent piece!!! Just found the site thanks to a friend and am going to be looking through all you guys offer! My money would have went much further with you guys if I had only known!!! #NewVaper #GetHealthyForMySon #EightVapeRules!!
Pieces of pieces that were thankfully second handed to me to get me started away from cigarettes!!! Most of them did not work with the cortex mod that drains battery so fast it’s almost impossible to use anymore, if a tank decides to work on it. I had the most luck with the outdated Eleaf istick 100w (photo 1 right side), with the dual battery power and magnetic door. Combined, I used the aspire tank (1st photo in bag and 2nd photo, which sadly I do not know what tank it is except it’s an aspire! So I can,t replace the glass), with the HEAVY old istick until I of course broke yet another!!!!! I dropped the piece and went back to cigarettes until I saved enough side money to buy a quality piece! See photo 3 the voopoo drag with internal battery, with Smok prince tank. I was oblivious to this site (or even a small mom and pop shop farther than the shop I USED to use a LOT), and bought the device for almost 4x what I could have paid here, and gotten the BETTER drag 2 with external battery!!! And of course, now, the thread connection of the mod is loose and am afraid it will break soon!!! I desperately need a win guys!!! I purchased the Smok mag grip mod for my wife for her b-day present and she is super happy, and can’t wait to have enough funds to replace what I know is about to break... makes me sick these shops are taking advantage of people!!!
If anyone on the team can identify this aspire tank so I can replace the glass it would be HIGHLY/GREATLY appreciated!!!! Thank you for everything you guys offer!!! You have a forever customer in me 100%!!!
Ugly mod I literally have to take the 510 connector out and screw it into my tank than push it down into the mod for it to even work and it will literally burn out a double mesh coil with just a couple hits because the connection g priv 2 priv luxe my very first mod. I tried saving it but just couldn’t. Also has UGLY scratched into the side of the mod and the pictures so that the 510 connector won’t sit in its slot it literally bounces back out of it...pretty sure how I use it is dangerous since I’m reconnecting the power to it and pulling it off all the time to use it.
Left: first mod ever owned. Smok alien that has been through hell and back and still works like a champ ! Its just ugly. The TFV12 on top is the first tank I owned and it has e-juice caked in it that is at least 2 years old. No glass and no coils left for that guy.
