Q&A: Adding a mod to the Mod Range calculator

Q&A: Adding a mod to the Mod Range calculator


Can [this or that mod] be added? Max power = 75 Resistance range = 0.1 -3.5, can’t confirm max voltage or current limit however.

The calculations in the Mod Range calculator are based on two main values: The max output voltage and the max output current.

With these values, adding a new mod is trivial. Without them, adding a new mod is impossible. Without the voltage and the current, there can be no calculation.

If you do know these numbers, please do send them to me, preferably together with links to your sources.

If all looks good, I will add the mod to the presets.

You can simply leave your information/request as a comment under this post. Alternatively, use the contact form on the Mod range page: First click the “how it works” link. In the text that now becomes visible, you’ll find a button labeled “drop me a note”. Click that, and you’ll see a form where you can write me a message.

If you don’t know the numbers, I can think of three different ways to get hold of them:

  1. Ask the mod manufacturer to tell you these numbers. I’ve tried this myself a few times, but I haven’t had any luck. Go figure. Still, you may be luckier than me, so it may be worth a try.
  2. Alternatively, measure the output yourself. You will need a multimeter for the voltage. For the current you can use an amp meter, maybe build some kind of voltage divider circuit, or just see what voltages it can provide at a few different known, low resistances. While you’re at it, try to find the maximum and minimum resistance that the mod will support.
  3. If none of these methods work for you, and you’re really intent on having your mod featured, you can always donate it to me, so I can measure it myself and add the numbers to the calculator. Again, send me a message, and I’ll tell you where to ship it.

  1. Hi… would it be possible to add the following to the mod list…
    {“nm”:”SMOANT CHARON TC218″,”umin”:”6.8″,”umax”:”8.4″,”pmin”:”1.0″,”pmax”:”218″,”rmin”:”0.1″,”rmax”:”5.0″,”imax”:”25.9″}

    {“nm”:”SMOK MAJESTY 225″,”umin”:”0.5″,”umax”:”9″,”pmin”:”6″,”pmax”:”225″,”rmin”:”0.1″,”rmax”:”3″,”imax”:”25″}

    I hope thats the right info!

    • Thank you for submitting the JSON, that makes the job a lot easier for me. I’ll make sure to include this in a future update.

  2. Hi, first and foremost thanks for the awesome utility you’ve provided to the vape world. I can’t find the “how it works” link anywhere on the mod range page so I’ll hope to get a response from here. I currently have the yihi sx mini G class MOD and was hoping you could review and add it, and all of it’s variables (ie. joules ) to the steam engine? I’ve read what I could find and the conclusion I’ve come to for steam engine purposes is that 1 joule is equivalent to 1 watt at 1 ohm of resistance.. I’m trying to use the mod in TC mode using SS 316L and the longer I fiddle with it the better I get BUT it’s still kind of a guessing game given ALL of the adjustable features in the mod… If you could add the requested info and perhaps make a video/article of the all the different settings actually being applied would be wonderful!! Reading/learning about each individual feature is not difficult. But actually applying them all togther is another story entirely.. I’ve searched and searched for videos and articles, none of which fit the bill. some even say “I just keep my joules all the way up at 120 and adjust temperature” but that doesn’t work well either…end up with burnt taste even with “soft” preheat setting. You are very intelligent and electrically savvy and can’t find a better person to ask if you’d be so kind as to grace us with your knowledge.(being 100% sincere) Thank you for consideration.

    • oh and It does have the latest firmware update uploaded 1/2/2018. that’s for the

      • Hi. Technically, 1 joule is 1 watt for 1 second, but I’m aware that Yihi seem to have cooked up their own mysterious definition of the word joule for some purpose. I don’t have any experience with Yihi mods, and I don’t own any. Are you really willing to send me a mod for review? If so, I’ll gladly have a go at measuring its output and writing down whatever facts I can find together with my opinion of it, but I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to figure out all the menu options. After all, writing the documentation is Yihi’s job, and if a third party can write better documentation than the manufacturer, then there’s something strange going on. I can give it a go, though.

  3. Thank you for the response. No, Unfortunately I can’t donate my mod. It will be the last mod I purchase for a VERY long time hopefully. Should you ever come across one in the future it’d be great to get your thoughts/opinions/suggestions however. Thanks again for the info.
