Wattage vs Joules In Vapes
If you’re new to the vaping scene, the temperature section on your box mod or vaporize may raise a bit of confusion. What’s the purpose and benefit? Why would I need something like this on my device? However, there are a lot of benefits that you may not know of and setting the perfect temperature for your device is a lot easier than you think!
Before we get into setting up the right watts and/ or joule for your device, let’s figure out what these even mean. To put it simply, wattage is the measure of the amount of power an electronic cigarette uses. Adjusting your vape wattage means altering the temperature produced by the atomizers/ coils as the juice is being heated. The main purpose of adjusting the wattage is so you can fine-tune your vape to your desired taste and preferences. The wattage has a direct effect on the vapes flavour, throat hit, and cloud size. These are all variables that need to be tested and well balanced in order to achieve the optimal vaping experience. For most cig-a-like devices that closely mimic smoking, they are usually set at 7-15 watts. For some users, this is a perfect setting as it guarantees a satisfying hit. For users with box mods looking for more flavour and
clouds, the 40-50 watt range is ideal. At these levels is when you really start to taste the flavour and subtleties of your e-liquid. It’s at this range where the denseness of vapour and hit to the throat also begin to come out. For newer users, keep in mind that while vaping desert or richer flavours, such as tobacco, coffee, and custard tend to taste better as you increase the wattage.
So now that you know what wattage is, you must be thinking about joules and how they tie into your vaping device. Newer vaping devices include Joule controls rather than the standard wattage controls. Joules are another form of measuring energy. Without getting too technical and losing the train of thought, a joule is 1 amp passing through a resistance of 1 ohm per second. 1 watt equals 1 joule per second. If you’re feeling confused, don’t be! Joules are mainly used to adjust your settings more accurately. If you’re still scratching your head, vaping at 40 joules is roughly equal to vaping at 40 watts. Go figure.
For the casual vaper, variable-wattage devices are the way to go. They offer you the freedom to customize your vaping experience by fine-tuning your device to the exact desired wattage you want, depending on the e-juice you’re using. If you enjoy switching between different flavours, a change in wattage or coils could be the key to unlocking the best flavour in each e-liquid. Experimenting with different combinations of wattage and coils will help establish the perfect wattage for you. Variable wattage devices come in all varieties, including variable wattage pod kits, such as the SMOK RPM40, SMOK IPX 80 kit and the Geekvape Aegis Boost coils. Some of the best variable wattage devices include, Vaporesso Gen S, SMOK Nord 4, and the VooPoo Drag 3. Interested in finding the right device and coils? head on over to VanGoVapes.com/devices !
