Taking Your Cloud Chasing to a Whole New Level

Experienced vapers often excite at the idea of blowing bigger clouds, so much so that cloud chasing has become a sport. With safety in mind, we’ve some handy tips to make you the next biggest cloud chaser.

Breathing

The inhale/exhale required for cloud chasing is different. You must perfect a large enough inhale to produce a big cloud, and the speed of the exhale must be slow. If your exhale is too fast, you’ll get a thin cloud. Just remember the slower, the thicker. One technique for creating a large cloud on the exhale involves moving backward at the same time, this is known as rip tripping.

RDA

An RDA or rebuildable drip atomizer allows you to control the drip of the e-liquid onto the coils. This isn’t helpful for everyday use, but if you’re trying to get a larger cloud, this allows you to drip before every few puffs. You must also be familiar with sub ohming. Your atomizer must, therefore be firing at under 1 ohm of resistance.

Air

Depending on the airflow, it can either affect your MOD or your cloud. If there is too much air escaping, then your clouds will be thin. However, if not enough air is escaping, it might damage your MOD. You definitely want thick clouds, but you don’t want your MOD to get damaged. Testing limited airflow is something to experiment with as a cloud chaser, but also to beware of.

Battery

Another potential danger to your MOD is overheating the battery. If you use your battery incorrectly or leave it charging too long, the battery can overheat and your MOD can catch on fire or explode. Make sure you are using the right brand of charger, or the one that came with your MOD and make sure to attend to the battery while it is charging. This way it will never get overcharged.

VG Chasing

Another thing to think about is the e-liquid. It should have a higher blend of VG. For thick clouds, your e-liquid should be about a 70/30 blend with VG being the greater unit and PG or being the lesser. This produces great clouds, is easy on the throat, and tastes better. You can also use pure VG, which is what professional cloud chasers tend to use.

The Wick and Coil

Wicking is another important part of cloud chasing. If you treat your wick properly you will get the most use out of your e-liquid. To do this, cut both ends of the wick. Fluff the ends up, and then tuck them under the coil, leaving room for air beneath the wick as you push it to one side. The most important part of cloud chasing is how your coils are built. Use a dual coil for maximum cloud production.

As you can see, cloud chasing is definitely only for the most experienced vaper. Misuse of the battery or airflow could lead to the explosion of your MOD potentially causing harm to you or those around you. Taking all this into consideration, enjoy! Cloud chasing can be thoroughly entertaining and exciting.

MOD Power or Airflow – Which Do You Prefer?

Typically, people that start using MODs do so because, having had the basic e-cigarette and/or vape pen experience, they’re ready to get to that next level. They want increased wattage and voltage, bigger hits, and larger vapor clouds. Essentially, a MOD is a bigger and more powerful device that’s often customized according to personal preference. Additionally to being extra powerful, MODs tend to allow for a bigger air intake in order to create more vapor without overheating. However, having more power and airflow can make it harder to find a perfect balance between the two. When an argument over MOD using begins, the central questions tends to be the same: Power or Airflow?

First of all it’s important to keep in mind that more power means more heat, while more airflow means more vapor. There needs to be an equilibrium between the two in order to get the amount of warmth, flavor and thickness that you prefer. The relation between temperature and the amount of air getting to the coils will determine not only these factors, but also the size and density of the resulting cloud. Some vape enthusiasts may find that warm and concentrated vapor hits the spot, while others may prefer cooler hits that produce bigger clouds. There’s no right or wrong, it’s simply a matter of personal choice.

Admittedly, though, that sweet spot is not always easy to find. Every MOD is different, provided with its own particular capabilities and unique build-up. Size is a preponderant factor, but it’s not the only one. The special characteristics and capacities of each MOD translate to a wide range of variables. The size of the battery is important, but the amount of power that is produced by it becomes meaningless without a suiting airflow allowance. The same works the other way around: It doesn’t matter how much air goes in the MOD if there isn’t enough power to heat it up.

Learning how to control these characteristics becomes a new task with each different, uniquely built vape MOD. A good example of a variable that’ll affect the settings is whether the MOD is adjusted by voltage (amount of electricity) or wattage (amount of work performed by electricity). Another important factor that comes into play when vaping is the e-liquid: Each product has a different composition which affects the process in its own manner.

 

Technical aspects aside, however, what ultimately defines the perfect balance between power and airflow are the personal preferences of the user. Take their drag technique for example: Whether someone likes mouth-to-lung hits or straight-lung hits will definitely have a huge impact on their preferred settings. More power is usually regarded as better for mouth-to-lung hits that are warmer and extra flavorful. In turn, more airflow tends to appeal more to those interested in cool lung hits packed with lots of vapor. For some people making huge clouds is a huge part of the appeal of vaping, and that comes with its own set of techniques and level-adjustments. There are even some that keep the vapor in their mouths without inhaling because they’re mainly interested in flavor and dislike any kind of harshness or strain.

 

As with many things in life, finding the perfect settings for your MOD is a matter of experimentation and adjustment. Power and airflow are both vital for correct functionality, but whether you favor one or the other depends on what you are trying to get. Understanding your MOD is essential, and after that it’s all a matter of slowly adjusting the settings until it simply feels right for you.

What Strength of E-Liquid Should I Purchase?

For new and experienced vapers alike, choosing the right e-liquid that vapes smoothly, produces enough vapor, doesn’t gag them, and tastes delicious and refreshing takes some serious trial and error. These effects comprehensively combined are known as the e-liquid strength, This brief guide is here to assist you, the vaper, in making the right purchases the first time around so you get the most vape for your buck.

To start, a factor of the strength is the flavor of the e-liquid, Some flavors do not go together well, or as well as we might think, it is safe to assume that perhaps custom blending blueberry, whipped cream, and pie crust together would produce something that tastes as heavenly as blueberry cream pie, and this is true, it does. It is not safe to assume that blending cherry and melon together would become a fruitful heavenly delight, something like this would taste more like obnoxious lotion in your nose and mouth.

The amount of vapor to be inhaled and then exhaled into the air has quite a lot to do with the size of your device, bigger does make far more vapor, smaller does not, so if you want to be blowing huge clouds into the air you will want to purchase a MOD, which’s the largest sized vaping device.

Now we come to nicotine levels and PG/VG levels (Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin), experience and testing reveals that the higher the nicotine level the more stringent and numbing the pull will affect your mouth, nose and lungs, and the nicotine levels of the e-liquid vial (usually 15 to 30 ml) can be modified from21mg (Regular Strength) all the way down to nicotine free e-liquid (aka. Vape Juice). If you’re attempting to quit smoking full flavor cigarettes, it’s suggested to start with 21mg and ween your way down to 0mg, then you are simply vaping in social situations, etc…

 

Finally, we come to The PG/VG percentage values which are rather simple to understand how they affect the strength of the vape juice, in the case of 70% PG / 30% VG this will give the strongest throat hit but produce less vapor, the closer these values are to even (50/50), the smoother the pull will be, and denser the cloud will be, altering the character in strength of inhalation or pull.

 

So always remember the aforementioned factors in choosing the right e-liquid for your vaping preferences every time you shop for more:
• Don’t make your custom blends too sweet or too fruity
• A MOD is strongest, but an E-cigarette is the lightest
• Ask us for the best tasting and most popular featured house blends
• The higher the milligrams of nicotine, the more like a regular strength cigarette
• The higher the PG percentage adds to more throat hit, but when PG/VG are closer to 50/50, adds to the cloud effect

3 Quick Tips For Getting More Vapor From Your MOD

Most of us know that a MOD is a device that allows wattage and voltage changes depending upon on your vaping needs. Just by using it, you stand to really increase your vapor production. However, you’ve to have an understanding of how wattage and voltage work in order to increase your vapor production. Below are 3 tips for increasing your vapor output when using a MOD.

Tip #1: Sub-Ohm
Sub-Ohm vaping refers to vaping at a resistance of below 1 Ohm. This is a great way to produce more vapor from your MOD because the resistance is low. However, it should be noted that this could lead to battery spoilage due to the stress impacted.

Tip #2: High Wattage
If you want to achieve a greater vapor output from your mod, then you need to increase the wattages of your device. This however, should be done carefully so as not to burn your coil and therefore get a burnt flavor instead. If this happens, it could ruin your vaping experience and your interest in trying new things in vaping. Therefore, if you’re to increase your wattages, you need to first start at the low level. From here, you can increase the wattages gradually. Ensure, that every time you add wattages, you should vape and test if the device is too hot. If not, increase the wattage setting slowly and repeat this. However, if the device is too hot, you should adjust the wattage settings to the previous settings.

Tip #3: Lowering Coil Resistance
Another way of increasing the vapor output of your MOD is by decreasing the coil resistance. Remember, high temperatures are required in order to optimize the level of vapor production. Lowering the resistance of your mod will lead to the high temperatures required. However, it should be noted that if low resistance coils are used, they’re bound to burn out more quickly that the high resistance ones. Therefore, it’s important that the coils be changed often to avoid getting burnt flavors.
Increasing vapor production is one of the ways in which a vaper could enhance their vaping experience. However, while doing so, utmost care should be taken because MODs tend to be tricky in their usage, and if one isn’t well-informed on how to operate them, they could be a safety hazard.
