The Most Expensive Vaporizers In The World
Here’s a simple ranking of the most expensive vapes in the world:
- Shisha Sticks Sofia – $725,000
- Top Hat Mods TI 26650 – $10,000
- Otto Carter Designed Vapes – $3,000
- SX350J Dual 18650 Squonker – $1,893
- Gepetto Elite V2 Mod – $450 (retail)
As you can see, there’s a dramatic drop in price between each entry. Here’s a more detailed look at each one of these expensive vape mods.
Shisha Sticks Sofia – $725,000
The far and away champion for most expensive vape in the world is the Shisha Sticks Sofia, by UK based Shisha Sticks. This specially made high end vape was blinged out with a fortune worth of gems and precious metals. The bespoke vape was commissioned as a birthday gift for an anonymous Russian billionaire’s girlfriend.
It’s encrusted with 246 clear diamonds as well as 46 yellow Swarovski crystals. The tip is fitted with a six-carat oval diamond that is reportedly worth over $60,000 alone. The hand-blown glass was imported from Italy, and the firing button and base was constructed of solid 24-carat gold. As you can imagine, this high end vape isn’t available for sale. That is unless you’re ready to commission one for yourself.
Top Hat Mods TI 26650 – $10,000
There is quite a significant drop between our first and second place winners for most expensive vape mod. But the comparatively bargain price of $10,000 for the TI 26650 by Top Hat Mods is still no small purchase. Luckily you won’t have to worry about buying one, as they’re currently unavailable for purchase from the makers, meaning if you want one, you’ll have to get lucky enough to find a third party seller online. But if you get your hands on one, you’ll have simply one of the most beautifully designed mods ever dreamed up. The combination of high-quality wood grain and titanium casing gives the TI 26650 a unique style that few other mods have ever come close to matching.
Otto Carter Engraved Vape Mod – $3,000
Otto Carter is a world-renowned metal engraver who works exclusively by hand. That means every piece he creates was done manually with a chisel and no machines. One of the many products that Otto is known for engraving with his beautiful designs is mods. These are produced on a commission basis, and therefore the pricing is a bit hard to nail down, but his pieces are known to go for anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand for larger jobs like mods. But what you get for your money is a totally one of a kind piece of art that is also a high-end vape mod.
One way to create an extremely high end mod is by 3-D printing them out of the best materials. That’s exactly what the SX350J Dual 18650 Squonker is, a 3-D printed, gold-plated brass mechanical mod. The good news is that unlike most of the mods on our list, you can get your very own directly from the makers for just $1,893. The only catch is that the assembly is partially on you, as the device is printed and available through the Shapeways platform, meaning it’s sent to you as printed.
Gepetto Box Mods Elite V2 – $450-$6000
One of the most popular high-end vapes is the Elite V2 by Polish woodcarver Gepetto. The base model of the V2 retails for around $480, but it’s extremely rare to find one at the retail price, given the high demand and very low supply. That’s why it’s not unheard of for hardcore enthusiasts to spend as much as $6000 on this exceptional piece of art and technology. These beautiful devices are hand carved, ensuring each one is unique. Unfortunately, the tradeoff is their scarcity.
The Most Expensive E-Liquids In The World
It’s not just vaporizers that get the super-rich treatment; Some e-liquid makers aim to cater to the most expensive tastes.

These e-liquids are made only from the absolute best ingredients and shipped directly from their factory in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Best Of The Rest
While not everyone can afford the most expensive vape in the world, most people can still experience a similar quality without taking out a private loan. That’s why we added this list of more affordable, but still high end vape mods. So let’s briefly go over what makes each one worth your time.
The premier mod from high end vape maker Asmodus, the Minikin Boost Kodama is built to survive whatever you throw at it. By combining a high powered output with an extremely portable design, the Minikin Boost Kodama achieves what few other mods can.
This limited edition box mod takes classy to a whole new level. The gorgeously constructed mod features durable materials as well as 24k gold plating. But what truly makes this mod unique is the advanced SX550J-L chipset, which is well regarded as one of the best around.
This collab between the geniuses at VMA and Project Sub-Ohm brings you one of the finest mods ever to grace the scene. While the mod itself is lovely with a stabilized wood finish that includes detailing. But the real value comes in its power output. It boasts a 97% efficiency rating, as well as being Escribe compatible meaning it’ll always be up to date.
This 3-D printed Mod is decked out with some serious tech. The Classic DNA BF Mod uses the newest version of the Evolv DNA chipset, ensuring exceptional performance for years to come. This is simply one of the best options for those looking for a high end squonk vape.
This is an upgraded, high end version of the standard Smoant Battlestar mod. The standard Battlestar is already a fantastic mod, but the MU version takes things to the next level. The stabilized wood body adds a ton of style, and the included suite of features ensures you always have the tool you need.
Are the Most Expensive Mods Worth It?
While it may be enticing to own one of the most expensive mods on the planet, the truth is that most high end vapes will give you the same level of functionality. The real value in uber-expensive mods is the same as any overly expensive alternative. The social status they offer those that can afford them is worth the price for some.
But if you’re only interested in getting the best vaping experience that money can buy, it’s entirely possible to get that without spending more than a few hundred dollars. The five mods outlined in our best of the rest section are all perfectly adequate if your primary concern is purely vaping experience. Don’t be tricked into spending a fortune for the same or similar features found on more reasonable alternatives. That is unless you’ve got a ton of extra money and genuinely care about social status, then the most expensive vape mods might actually be worth it.
