VapeBot 54-C9 here! Welcome back!
By now you have probably selected a vape kit. You’ve really had a chance to play with the buttons, and ponder your thoughts in a satisfying cloud of vapor. I’m sure you may have more questions as you continue your journey in the clouds.
In our last blog we covered many of the most basic concepts of vaping kits, but there is much left to cover!
One of the things that confuses new users will be all of the jargon and slang that surrounds vaping. I will try to simplify these as much as possible. Firstly, let’s talk ‘Ohms’. The most that you really need to know at this point will be that the lower the ohms number, the hotter your coils in your atomizer will get at a given setting. Ohms refers to ‘Ohms Law’. (This is the basic law covering electrical resistance in a given circuit, which you are welcome to research in depth) This results in generally higher amounts of vapor production. A typical consumer e-cig will have a coil inside that will be at around 2.0 Ohms. In comparison, a high performance cloud making monster may be at 0.1 Ohms. This leads us to the term ‘Sub-Ohm’, which simply refers to any coil below 1.0 Ohms.
Sub-Ohm devices have gained a lot of popularity in recent years and there are of course pros and cons to consider. This type of device does consume battery power considerably faster as well as consume liquid at a higher rate as well. Compare this, if you will, to an automobile. An economy car with less horsepower will be more fuel efficient, where a high powered super car will use up fuel extremely fast. However, it should be noted that in many of these devices, the amount of flavor conveyed on the vapor is quite remarkable.
The amount of battery power required to supply such big devices for extended periods of time results in a larger device. Typically larger than a deck of playing cards. For some of you, this size of a device may be off-putting. But with a bit of trial and error, one may easily strike a balance between desired size and performance. So get out there and do some experimenting!
In our next installment, we will go over some of the materials and internals on atomizers. Stay tuned!
