There’s a common question that arises among new and experienced vapers alike: What’s the best way to get the most flavor out of e-liquids? Sometimes new vapers find that they can hardly taste the flavors, or experienced vapers who used to have no problems discover that they cannot taste the flavors as much or at all. Whether it’s from vaper’s tongue, e-juice issues, or equipment problems, there are a combination of factors to consider when attempting to get the more flavor while vaping.
The first thing to consider when it comes to flavor. Often times when someone’s not getting enough flavor from their liquid, they’re not letting it steep long enough, which’s just letting it spend time in a cool, dark place. Steeping will let the flavor settle and can substantially improve the flavor. When purchasing a new bottle, it’s a good idea to let it steep for a few days before using it. Depending on the flavor or brand, the times can be different. Another thing to consider when choosing an e-juice is the ratio of PG and VG. The majority of e-juices are a blend of the two, and a higher ratio of PG will provide more flavor when vaping. It’s best to start at a 50/50 ratio, but experimenting is necessary to find what works best.
The wick material being used plays a role in the quality of flavor. A long favorite, especially for those who make their own atomizers and clearomizers, is organic cotton. Silica wicks that are common in tanks that’re already built don’t provide as much flavor. What the tank is made of can also be a factor in flavor quality. Most vapers would agree that glass tanks are better for the best flavor, while plastic tanks can slightly reduce the quality. Also, using a dual coil setup instead of a single coil can improve the quality of flavor. When more e-liquid is able to make contact with the coils, it produces a greater amount of vapor. The more vapor that is produced, the more flavor it tends to give.
Understanding Vaper’s Tongue
This is especially among seasoned vapors, and it’s often caused by overuse of the same flavor. It’s natural to want to vape the same flavor once a favorite is found, but over the course of time it desensitizes an individual’s ability to taste the flavor. To overcome this, either start vaping a new flavor or get a stronger form of the same flavor. Dehydration is also a common cause of Vaper’s Tongue. When dehydrated, a person’s taste buds are not going to be working properly, and it causes a coating to build up over the tongue that dulls its ability to work effectively. To ensure the tongue is always prepared for flavor, stay hydrated.
There’s no need to worry if the flavors don’t seem to be strong enough. The quality of flavors and getting the most out of vaping is a learning process. No matter what the reason, with some time and small adjustments following these tips, both new and experienced vapers can look forward to getting the best quality flavor while vaping every time.
