You may be considering to buy, or you may have already about a variable voltage or variable wattage e-cig device. For vapers, this is a big jump from a device that looks like a cigarette or a vape pen style electronic cigarette. You are marking a stage where you are moving up from a starter kit to intermediate or advanced vaping.
The vaping world has a lot of devices, and some that you will come across will be variable wattage, which is a standard that most manufacturers build their devices. The reason that people go for vape devices where you can change the power output is that they want something more from their vaping experience.
Being able to change the voltage or the wattage on your vaping device means that you can also increase and decrease the electrical current that is flowing through the coil. The benefits of doing this are improved flavor and vapor production.
The resistance of your coils is not the only thing that controls the amount of vapor, flavor, and throat hit that is produced. It also depends on the amount of power that is flowing through your coil. There are two types of vape batteries that allow different amounts of power to flow through your coil, which is known as variable wattage and variable voltage.
You can get a more intense experience by lowering the resistance of your vape atomizer. You can also do the same by increasing the amount of power that is flowing through your e-cigarette. This may sound complicated to do, but usually, there is nothing more to it than pressing an up or down button or rotating a dial.
If you want more vapor again, you can combine a low resistance coil with a higher wattage to get even more vapor. But this does come with its own issues because you are far more likely to burn through coils or even get a dry hit, and the atomizer life will be dramatically reduced.
The difference between variable wattage and voltage is like the difference between a manual and an automatic vehicle. With a variable voltage device, you manually control the amount of power going through your device.
The amount of energy output will depend on how the resistance of your atomizer interacts with that power flowing through it. With a variable wattage device, rather than telling the device how much power you want to flow through your atomizer, you can tell it how much wattage or power you want it to output. The variable wattage device will then automatically adjust the power going through the atomizer or the voltage to produce the power output that you need, which is the wattage.
The watts is essentially how much power your vape produced, and the voltage is how much power is put through the device. As you increase the wattage, it also increases the voltage, and it goes vice versa. Voltage is not the only factor that affects wattage; you also need to take into account the resistance of the coils. Lower resistance coils produce more vapor, flavor, and heat at a lower voltage than higher ohm coils because they need more watts.
If you have a 1.8ohm coil running at 3.7 volts, then you will get an output of 7.4 watts, which is a decent vape. However, if you change the coil to a higher resistance of 2.8ohms, you will notice a considerable decrease in flavor, vapor production, and heat. As the wattage will be lower, around 4.4 watts, you will need to increase the voltage to increase the wattage and get a better vape experience. Since lower resistance coils use more wattage, they tend to create more heat, and they can burn out quicker than a higher resistance coil would.
