Karen is the founder of Sin City Mods, electronic cigarettes in the form of just about any and all drinking cans available!
If you aren’t familiar with the can mods offered by Karen, you can view my review of her Coke Can Mod.
I recently attended a local vape meet in Austin, TX, and I gotta tell ya…my Coke Can Mod received a lot of attention. Everyone wanted to see how it worked. It was a hit!
Welcome to Modding Mavericks, where I introduce you to the people behind the vaping scenes. Karen’s Can Mods are not only unique, they are functional, and have become my most stealthiest of mods…in the form of a Coke can…but you can get just about ANY can of your choice!
I now introduce you to Karen, of Sin City Mods, the only mods that are built around a drinking can of your choice!
Meet Karen of Sin City Mods
TUC: How long have you been vaping?
Karen: I tried vaping about 5 years ago with little success.
TUC: What was your very first e-cigarette?
Karen: I had a crappy cigarette looking prefilled unit that didn’t work at all. I didn’t know it at the time. I bought it at a smoke shop and had never seen anything like it before.
TUC: Who or what do you believe has had the most influence on you in the vaping community, and why?
Karen: Pink Spot Vapors. My husband and owner of Pink Spot Vapors (Penn) have been best freinds since childhood. Penn invited us to go to Vegas Vapefest and that started it all.
TUC: What would you say is your all time favorite movie, and why?
Karen: Star Wars. Come on man……
TUC: What are some of your favorite foods?
Karen: Bread mostly, and beer 🙂 I love all food. (except peas)
TUC: What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Karen: I made wine for a while, until the only wine and beer brewing store here closed. I made wedding cakes. I draw. I made candles for a few years. I’m like a grifter when it comes to hobbies. Now I make mods.
TUC: Which ONE word do you feel best describes you?
TUC: Which ONE word do you feel your friends would use to best describe you?
TUC: What flavor e-liquid are you vaping right now?
Karen: Pink Spot Almond Joy. Mmmmm.
TUC: What e-cigarette, or mod are you vaping right now?
Karen: 16oz Coconut Water Rockstar Can.
TUC: If you could live anywhere in the World, where would it be, and why?
Karen: At the beach. The weather is awesome.
TUC: What was the driving force behind the launch of your business?
Karen: When we went to Vegas Vapefest, all the mods I saw looked so similar. I wanted something that I looked at and said “wow, that is so cool“.
Most mods look like tubes. I did see an Altoid can converted to a mod with a tank and drip tip on the outside. I just thought… why?
TUC: What do you feel was your biggest challenge when first starting your business?
Karen: Omg. Everything. I didn’t know anything about modding, mods, electric currents, voltage, mAh, soldering etc. I spent 5 months just researching, ordering parts, testing them out, throwing them in the trash and searching again.
Hours and hours and hours lol.
TUC: What advice would you give someone who is thinking of going into business for themselves, in the e-cig industry?
Karen: If you love what you do, go for it.
TUC: What one thing would you like people to know about you, the woman?
Karen: I’m a perfectionist.

Karen has really come up with one of the most unique mods for vaping to date. I love mine, and plan on adding additional cans to my collection. I just love the look I get when people see me blow smoke after “drinking” from my can. 🙂
