One thing I always remember asking myself about box mods is, “why aren’t there box mods for waxes and concentrates and dry herbs?” I guess it comes down to the material since waxes and dry herbs don’t need as much heat to vaporize like liquids.
But still, not all box mods need to be high-wattage devices, and can still vape at temperatures and wattages suitable for other media. The KandyPens has filled this need in the marketplace with their K-Box.
The glass mouthpiece that covers the tank fits perfectly and looks like it was constructed for precisely that reason. The mouthpiece works together with the already installed atomizer, which also features two bottom airflow slots.
So the K-Box is obviously taking a lot of cues from box mods setups, with adjustable airflow, a top-filling chamber, and a power/firing button. But it still seems much easier to use and operate than most advanced box mods.
E-cigarettes create an aerosol, commonly called vapor, made of particulate matter. The vapor typically contains propylene glycol, glycerin, nicotine, flavors, and traces of toxicants, carcinogens, heavy metals, and metal nanoparticles. Its exact composition varies, and depends on several factors including user behavior.[notes 2]
The health effects of electronic cigarettes are unknown, but they are likely less harmful than smoking tobacco. E-cigarette vapor contains fewer toxic chemicals, in lower concentrations, than cigarette smoke. It does contain harmful chemicals, including harmful chemicals not found in tobacco smoke.
E-liquid is the mixture used in vapor products such as e-cigarettes. It usually contains propylene glycol, glycerin, nicotine, flavorings, additives, and contaminants. E-liquid formulations vary widely. A typical e-liquid comprises propylene glycol and glycerin (95%), and flavorings, nicotine, and other additives (5%).Some e-liquids lack propylene glycol, nicotine, or flavors. The flavorings may be natural, artificial, or organic.Over 80 chemicals such as formaldehyde and metallic nanoparticles have been found in the e-liquid. There are many e-liquids manufacturers, and more than 15,000 flavors.
Under the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) rules, e-liquids must comply with manufacturing standards. The revision to the EU Tobacco Products Directive has some standards for e-liquids. Industry standards are published by the American E-liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA).
