Regulated mods are the most popular on the market today and with so many to choose from it’s hard to tell the best ones. The regulated mods nowadays are better than ever as many companies have improved on their performance and design. So if you are shopping for new regulated mods I have this easy list to get you started in no particular order.
My list of best single 18650 regulated mods 2018 includes:
1. Vaptio Wall Crawler
Vaptio Wall Crawler is a small single 18650 pico styled mod with good power and temp mode you need to set the internal resistance to make TC work though which shouldn’t have been that way but it is what it is. Nice large color screen and small size make it a great choice though and tons of features. Extra points on the design if you are a spider man or comic book fan as well.
Vaptio Wall Crawler Pros and Cons
- Color Screen
- Beautiful Looks
- Accurate In Power Mode
- Decent TC
- Well Laid Out Screen
- Fires Fast
- Bright Screen
- Very Pocketable
- Charges Fast Internally
- 25 MM Atomizers With No Overhang
- Extremely Simple Menu System
- Wattage Curve and TC Curve
- TCR Function
- Battery cape threading could be better.
- TC is on the rowdy side and has room for improvement.

2. Uwell Nunchaku
Uwell Nunchaku is poor TC but great power mode mod. Single 18650 in the rare “stick” body. No other stick style mods like this have released for 2018 so if you want a stick style mod that looks great and is available in a ton of colors this is the way to go. Also the included tank in the kit is excellent and makes a beautiful matching set up.
Uwell Nunchaku Pros and Cons
- It’s beautiful
- Extremely easy and simple to use menu system
- Great build quality and threading
- Form factor
- Colour choices
- It’s a regulated tube style mod with removable 18650
Great performance in power mode
- Temperature control is poor.

3. Battlestar Mini
Battlestar Mini is a taller and skinnier regulated mod than the pico style, the Battlestar Mini packs the performance expected form Smoant in a small package. Single 18650 and good TC and power mode but they never fixed the spelling errors on the early versions which annoys me. If you can look past the spelling errors on the nice size black and white screen you get a small great performing mod.
Battlestar Mini Pros and Cons
- Power performance
- small size
- accurately rated
- Build Quality
- Sleek simple design
- Temp performance
- power curve mode
- easy to use
- good battery trey
- little play in battery door
- low amp limit

4. Vaporesso Armour Pro
Vaporesso Armour Pro is not a true 18650 only mod as it can take a 21700 or 20700 battery as well. However, it can be used with an 18650 battery via an adapter. A great small mod with a fire bar and the color screen built into it that works great in power mode and temp control mode with tons of features and options and an easy to use menu makes this a killer mod.
Vaporesso Armour Pro Mod Pros and Cons
- The Beautiful Design
- Compatible with 21700 / 20700 / 18650 Battery
- It’s ergonomic and ease of use.
- Great Quality
- Affordable Price
- The Readability of the Screen in Full Sunlight

5. Aspire Puxos
Aspire Puxos is not a true 18650 only mod as it can take a 21700 or 20700 battery as well. However, it can be used with an 18650 battery via an adapter. This mod works great in power mode and temperature control mode with tons of features and options. The menu could be better but it packs in style with replaceable side plates and is very lightweight to carry around and the included tank is great as well with the cleito pro and their mesh coils.

6. Eleaf Pico S
Eleaf Pico S is bot a true 18650 only mod as it can take a 21700 or 20700 battery as well. However, it can be used with an 18650 battery via an adapter. Built like the popular pico mods, this one is a little bigger due to compatible with many battery sizes and adds some extra styles and flair featuring LED lights as well. This is a great performer in power mode but very lacking in TC mode. Screen could be better and doesn’t have the fancy features of some other regulated mods.
Eleaf Pico S Pros and Cons
- Good Power Performance
- Accurately Rated
- Nice Bright LEDs

Eleaf Pico S Video Review
I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
