Thoughts on wattage/voltage control
Well, its been awhile since I have had time to sit and do a whole lot of anything vape related. I thought maybe I would share my thoughts on the topic of control. Namely the control we have over how we vape.
Some of you know that there are several converts where I work, it’s a production plant and there are a lot of smokers(and now a growing number of vapers). Most are using blu, green smoke, jasper and jasper or some other cig-a-like, but there are a few using v2′s and ego twists if I got to em before they purchased theirs. I get asked a lot of questions at work about how they can improve their vape, and I mean A LOT….
So with the understanding that they may not be able to go out and buy a (new) PV right now, I try and help em make what they have work. With the cig-a-likes its hard but there are several pointers I give that help em, and it works for them. But when its all said and done I tell them they have to make a choice, either
a) get a decent pv(ego type batteries may not be the prettiest thing in the world but they get the job done cheaply)
b) find a different way to quit if that is your goal.
c) keep smoking…. this option is not what they want to hear, but options a and b will save them money and their life, not with out taking time and effort though. So its up to them what they want to do, if the cig a like works then great, but I can’t turn crap to gold
So with the twist and spinner guys it turns into getting good atty’s and showing them how to take care of their devices. It’s pretty easy with these guys, most of em have been trying to quit for years and have the drive to do it just need someone to show them how to get the most of out of the equipment.
And now finally I get to the topic I wanted to start with.
How do you control your vape? Do you like to be able to tweak your voltage/wattage on the fly? Do you like to spend a little more time to setup but in the end have a setup that can not be tweaked easily and really doesn’t need it?
I, personally, carry a couple pv’s to work that are pretty much locked in to what I enjoy through the day. I enjoy 11 – 15 watts with quick heating coils(low resistance), so with a mech mod I’m looking at about 1 ohm on my coil. that works for me.
I’ve sat with people vaping and watched em do a little tweak there, then a little tweak here, here a tweak, there a tweak, everywhere a tweak tweak….oh wait we’re not on a farm right? I don’t remember being like that 9 months or so ago when I started vaping, maybe I was and I just didn’t notice it. Anyway the point is. Do we start out as tweakers and (hopefully) end up where I am, that is a person knowing what works for them and not needing to do on the fly adjustments?
Even with using my Provari or my eVic or a kicked device I don’t adjust em much. I find the voltage I want and they stay there, only bonus I gain from em is a regulated vape(which in it self is awesome).
So are you a tweaker or have you found a nice steady vape?
