By purchasing a mechanical device from VAPR, you will be required to read and agree to the following information.


This is a NON-REGULATED, mechanical electronic-cigarette or mod. Failure to use this product as directed in the following section can result in fire hazard or explosion due to battery or heating-coil failure. These hazards can result in serious injury and/or death, including but not limited to serious burns or blunt-force trauma. Safe operation of this device requires advanced and working knowledge of heating coils, battery safety, and Ohm’s Law; without working knowledge of the aforementioned concepts, you are not qualified to use this device and should immediately return this device to the manufacturer for a full refund. This product is intended for use ONLY by experienced users of mechanical electronic-cigarettes commonly referred to as “vape(s)”, “mech(s)”, “mod(s)” or “squonk(s)”.


Directions for Safe Usage of This Product:

  1. Use only 21700-sized lithium-ion batteries that have a Continuous Discharge Rate (CDR) of greater than or equal to 25 amps, purchased from a reputable manufacturer and/or vendor. Insert the battery into the device positive-side-down. DO NOT rely on so-called “pulse ratings” or other similarly-termed ratings. Make sure all battery manufacturer claims have been verified by an independent third party.

  2. DO NOT use batteries that have damaged or dented casings or covers.

  3. DO NOT use batteries of which the voltage lies outside of the range of 3.5-4.2 volts (V).

  4. Pressing the fire button on this device SHALL NOT exceed 5 seconds.

  5. Use only heating coils that have a resistance-rating of greater than or equal to 0.12 ohms (Ω).

  6. DO NOT rely on manufacturer resistance ratings of coils. Before installation, test each coil yourself using a resistance-reader specifically designed for use with electronic-cigarette heating coils. Only after you have personally determined that the resistance meets or exceeds the aforementioned standard may the coil(s) be deemed suitable for use with this product.

  7. When the product is not in use, remove the battery and engage the connection-lock by turning the button counter-clockwise.

  8. DO NOT transport this electronic cigarette with a battery installed in the device. Before transportation in places such as a pocket or bag, the battery must be removed and MUST be placed in a container specifically designed for carrying batteries. DO NOT carry or store unenclosed batteries in pockets or other spaces not designed for safely carrying batteries.

  9. DO NOT allow this product to exceed temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). In the event this product or the installed battery exceeds the stated temperature limit, remove the battery, and place the battery and electronic-cigarette in a non-flammable area, and then move all living things to a safe distance. After the battery has cooled to a safe temperature, dispose of the battery in an approved battery recycling receptacle.

This product is strictly For ADVANCED USERS ONLY, with a knowledge of Ohm’s Law and Battery safety. Only use quality hi-amp batteries. Mechanical Mods and Rebuildable Atomizers are for advanced users only. Mechanical Mods and Rebuildable Atomizers are advanced user products. Use at your own risk.

Rebuildables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.

1. A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
2. If it is not tested it is entirely the risk of the user.
3. Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
4. New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV that has short circuit protection.
5. No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
6. These items destroy electronic devices if faulty. This is a known issue.

VAPR pty ltd will not be held responsible or liable for any injury, damage, or defect, permanent or temporary that may be caused by the improper use of a LI-ION battery or mechanical device.
