Your complete guide to wattage and vaping
As a former smoker, you might be interested in knowing more about wattage in vaping devices. This guide will cover common terminologies and how to choose the correct settings for your vaping experience so that it’s enjoyable!
Critical to the essential operation of your e-cigarette is how much power you apply to your device and at what rate. All modern-day regulated devices feature wattage control which allows you to set the maximum wattage (power) that your device will deliver to your atomizer/coil.
What is a ‘Watt’?
The watt (symbol: W) is a power unit, defined as one joule per second. It describes the amount of energy transferred or expended by an electric current, voltage, or other quantity during the period it acts.
This guide breaks down everything you need to know about vaping so you can pick the perfect wattage for your first experience.
How to choose the perfect wattage
Vaping is a great way to enjoy your favourite flavours without using tobacco. However, vape wattage plays an essential role in determining how much vapour and flavour you get from the vape juice, so it’s a personal preference that you should consider here!
Your preferred vaping wattage can depend on how experienced you are in vaping, what kind of device and the type of juice flavours come with your e-cigarette.
A beginner may want to start at lower watts while more advanced users might enjoy using higher ones; however, this will vary from person to person!
The closed pod devices are designed for those who want a similar experience as smoking. Unfortunately, most only offer around 7-15 watts of power, which means they can’t compare with other vape pens on the market that produce up to 200W or more! However, that doesn’t mean that a low wattage is terrible. On the contrary, even 10 watts is sufficient to guarantee a satisfying vape, which may be ideal for new vapers.
As you become more experienced, it’s safe to say that vaping starts to shine between the range of 40 and 50 watts. At these wattages, your e-liquid will start coming alive with subtleties like denseness in vapour and hit on our throat, which is perfect for those who want something profound without having their senses overwhelmed by flavour or strength!
The average vaper prefers wattage levels between 50 and 75 watts, but some vape at lower or higher power. 25-50 is the most popular choice for daily use to be satisfied with what they have learned thus far without feeling too adventurous yet
Many people tend not to think about upgrading their device until it’s time for more advanced features like temperature control and more significant battery life.
What wattage should you use for the best flavour?
It’s essential to know the correct wattage for your vaping needs. For example, a 50-watt device will work best with one coil and flavourings on the lighter side, such as Frosted Candy or Blue Slush, whereas an 80W mod would be perfect if you enjoy those richer tasting juices like vanilla custard!
One thing I always recommend doing when picking out new coils is playing around between different combinations until something feels how we want it to; there isn’t necessarily “one” sweet spot but rather lots of overlapping regions where any given build can offer both high flavour hits and huge clouds in various proportions depending upon how many watts are used during the setup process
Should I vape at a low wattage? Is it bad?
Vaping at a low wattage is not harmful to you or your device. It can prolong the battery life of both and result in increased overall longevity for either one! Lower “burn” temperatures mean less vaporisation which makes for weaker hits but doesn’t necessarily reduce their enjoyment level if they enjoyed lately wanted more potent vapes anyways without having time constraints on how long they spend vaping each day like with higher settings
When to lower wattage: When the vapour becomes harsh and loud, you know that’s a sign it needs less power. Lowering your mod will give off smoother hits with better flavour without producing any burnt or hot vape juice taste in your mouth.
Above all have fun and experiment
If you’re new to vaping, it may take some experimenting with your device settings and wattage before finding the perfect balance. With so many options available on today’s market of vape mods (and even more in future), this could be tricky!
If you’re a beginner and want to know what wattage range is best for your preferences, you mustn’t go too high or low. The manual will give some suggested limits when first purchasing your device and testing out different power levels with desired results in mind.
There is also room for modification and unofficial tweaks to the system, with many vape mods taking advantage of this and allowing for temperature control. This is a surefire way to make vaping even more enjoyable; we will soon see power limits increase as vaping becomes mainstream over time.
