We took a look at a high-end box mod to determine if a big name in mech vaping can keep up quality with our VGOD Elite 200 review. We’ll cover the basics and help you decide if this is the new piece of hardware you have been looking for. The new Elite box mod is a regulated, 200 watt TC capable device. True to their roots, VGOD has included a high-performance mech mode, an innovative feature that has everyone buzzing about this device.
VGOD is one of the biggest names in mech mods. The VGOD Elite 200 watt mod is 84 mm tall and 55 mm wide. The thickness ranges from 24.5 mm to 30 mm. The reason that the thickness varies is the irregular shape of this device. It is not a square edged box. Rather it has smooth, protruding features that give is a very comfortable, ergonomic feel. It’s also gorgeous. The VGOD shield on one side and the large etched VGOD logo on the other.
The build quality and construction are fantastic. It is metal throughout the body and even the fire button is metal. Kind of like the Envii Loch Ness mod. This mod is a durable, good looking beast. Kind of like me! Anyway. The fire button is perfectly located on the top of the mod. It is a thumb sized button perfectly located for thumb firing. My only gripe is that it is not a clicky fire button but that’s not a big thing. The overall build quality is five star. This mod sells for about $190 placing it in a higher price bracket. But it is a high-quality build that’s for sure. Rock solid and you will feel that the second you take it out of the box.

VGOD Elite Vaping Features
One of the features of the VGOD Elite is ProMode. What is ProMode? It is a custom firing profile setting. You can program 7 seconds of firing time. It is really easy to set your own ProMode custom firing profile, especially with the large, bright display screen. My preferred firing profile is a higher wattage for the first two seconds that gradually declines. For example, you can have 90 watts for the first second of firing, 85 for the second, 65 for the third, and then down to a mellow 50 for the last four seconds. That will give a hard initial hit that mellows out. You can do the reverse, too. Start out mellow and ramp up the intensity.
The stability vaping in temperature control mode is excellent. The only dip in the road is that there is a bit of a delay between hitting the fire button and the atomizer firing. Mods like the Smok T-Priv fire faster and cost less. What really sets the Elite apart is the build quality and how it operates in mech mode. This mod works like a dream for coil builders.
Who Is The VGOD Elite For
This device is especially excellent for coil builders who enjoy building at super low resistances. Using the VGOD Elite 200 review model in mech mode with your low build it is phenomenal. Plus in mech mode you get the benefits of a mech and the safety features. You will get a beautiful performance from your low resistance builds. The secret sauce of the Elite is the constant 4.2-volt output.
The constant voltage output in mech mode is consistent regardless of the battery status. Even as the battery capacity is drained, you will not get a reduced power output. If the VGOD Elite cannot deliver the full voltage, it won’t fire. You will get consistency consistently! Had to say it. Sorry. Anyway, the bottom line is that the VGOD is a rock star for coil builders looking for a high-performance, top quality mod to get the most out of your low resistance builds.
