Then the pen is inlaid with 46 yellow Swarovski crystals, 246 clear diamonds, and finally, in the tip, a six-carat oval diamond that on its own is worth over $60,000. This pen is, naturally not readily available for sale from Shisha Sticks. However, you can commission one if you’ve got that kind of money to spare.

Top Hat Mods TI 26650 – $10,000

Next on our list, the Top Hat TI 26650, is also currently unavailable for purchase from the makers. This means if you are looking to buy one you have to procure it from a third party seller, which given this piece’s cult following will be difficult. If you are ever lucky enough to get one you would be looking at one of the most beautifully designed mods in the world. The high-quality wood grain and titanium casing make the TI 26650 a unique style that other mods can only ever hope to evoke.

Depending on how large and intricate the design, you can be looking at anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. No matter what design you get, you’ll have a piece of art that is utterly unique.

Is it Worth it?

The excess and luxury of having the most expensive vape mod on the planet is enticing, and indeed a draw for the truly passionate. That being said, many high-end vape mods offer the same experience at a much more affordable price.

The best vaping experience is unique for each vaper and for most it is entirely attainable without spending more than a few hundred dollars. The five mods we outlined under “best of the rest” are perfect examples of this. Don’t be tricked by flash into spending a fortune. That is unless you have tons of extra cash and care about the social status that comes along with that kind of excessive purchase. In that case it is totally worth it.


While we all like to be a bit of a nosy neighbor and glimpse into the life those with money to burn, some of the most expensive vapes are over the top. Others are beautiful works of art, which is reflected in the price. This means most of us will be opting for the more affordable options.

Most reasonably priced high-end mods are still an investment, but comparing a few hundred dollars with a few thousand is a no-brainer. For even better prices we still highly recommend you check out our deals section. We work hard to keep them up to date so that you can save money on high-quality items.
