Every one of the following five box mods shares something significant in common: on-board technology. Each of them is a box mod too. They are DNA200 box mods containing Evolv chipsets made in the United States; the best money can buy. These mods feature the following spec:
• 1V to 9V output
• monitoring for each cell individually
• up to 2 ohms resistance and as low as 0.08 in TC mode with TC coils
• 200F to 600F range
• 1W to 200W spectrum
• protection against voltage and resistance extremes
• upgradable firmware
• lock, stealth, and power pre-set modes
• 97% efficiency
There are other features we could talk about, all of them technological, but let’s just get down to business.
Here are the top DNA 200 box mods:
Volcano Lavabox DNA200
This is a beautiful mod from Volcano E-Cigs of Hawaii. They come in three colors, although they are often out of the white and blood red colors. The black seems to be in stock most of the time. (I just checked and at the time of this post, Blood Red and Black are in stock.

Wismec Reuleaux 200W TC
With a design by Jay Bo, this is more than a sporty stunner: it’s narrow and practical. Despite having to hold three batteries, the Reuleaux still manages to appear smaller than competitors’ mods of the same output. It measures 84 x 40 x 50 mm: amazing. The design includes a magnetic cover for your removable batteries plus a 0.91″ OLED display showing watts, resistance, volts, and temperature. You can also create eight personal profiles with the Wismec Reuleaux DNA 200.

Lost Vape Triade DNA 250
Again customers have to put up with a built-in triple cell which can be a great feature or a pain depending on how you see it. There are fewer moving parts (that is, no removable batteries or doors) but this isn’t always wireless technology if you have to recharge by day.
Of course this is 250, and not 200 watts, but the 200w selections are dwindling.
The Triade’s unique style includes a removable panel made from carbon fiber and buttons of stainless steel. The frame is made from die cast zinc alloy, which is tough stuff but light.
A Lost Vape Triade DNA 250 Box Mod measures 85 x 25 x 60 mm, and you will need 3 18650 batteries, sold separately.
VaporShark was among the first to strike a partnership with Evolv. Their DNA 200W mod is CNC-machined using aircraft-grade aluminum for optimum strength but minimal weight. The exterior is anodized and rubberized so that you can hold it comfortably for long periods of time. Using 2A Zip Charging, you recharge in 1 ½ hours using a USB port without removing the battery.

This final mod is so good-looking that SMY drapes it with a banner like a Miss America contestant. Each of the three colors sports this diagonal “sash” near a top corner plus parallel grooves above it. The final result is energetic and distinctive, but it’s what’s inside that counts. SMY relies on Evolv’s technology to give you a system offering up to 200W with a big, clear screen showing output. It would appear the removable-battery format is unique to Wismec as far as this list is concerned.

This was one of the surprises of 2015; a partnership between the clone kings and makers of the original DNA 200. The result is a power house that lets you fire sub-ohm atomizer coils in relative safety and at a low price point. The unusual shape raises elements of the control panel so the screen is recessed and protected. When an atomizer tank contains Ni200 wire, you can create astounding clouds and excellent flavor at high temperatures safely. Fire down to 0.08 ohms. The VT200 contains a built-in 1300mAh 3S Li-Po cell which is recharged via USB. Operate the VT200 in pass-through mode while it charges.
