The Ultimate Vaping Guide : Voltage Watts & Ohms Explained

Not so long ago the term Vaping didn’t even exist!
With a continuous growth in the vaping community people are getting more and more interested in learning the advanced, more deeper aspects of it.
Like how does it work?
What is the whole point of Variable Wattage & Volts?
How does resistance affect my vaping?
Don’t worry we got you covered!

Introduction to Voltage, Watts & Ohms:

What are ohms?
An ohm is a unit of resistance. Essentially, the lower the resistance of your atomiser, the more electricity will flow through it. Increase the amount of resistance and less electricity will flow through. So when you use a lower resistance atomiser, and more electricity flows through, you will find the following:

  • more heat is generated at the coil
  • more vapour is generated
  • you may experience a more intense flavour
  • vapour will be warmer.

What variable Voltage Devices do?

The resistance of your atomiser is not the only thing which controls the amount of vapour, flavour and throat hit that are produced. It also depends on the amount of power flowing through your atomiser.
As we’ve seen, you can get a more intense experience by lowering the resistance of your atomiser. You can also do the same by increasing the amount of power flowing through your e-cigarette. That may sound complicated, but usually there’s nothing more to it than pressing an up/down button or rotating a dial.

But what if you want more vapour again? Then you can combine a low resistance atomiser with a higher voltage to get even more vapour. But this does come with its own problems – you are far more likely to burn through atomisers or get a dry hit, and atomiser life will be dramatically reduced.

Variable Voltage(VV) VS Variable Wattage(VW) Devices

Basically, the difference between variable voltage and variable wattage is a bit like the difference between an automatic and a manual car. With a variable voltage device you manually control the amount of power (voltage) going through your device.

The amount of energy that is actually output will depend on how the resistance of your atomiser interacts with that power flowing through it. With a variable wattage device, however, rather than telling the device how much power you want to flow through your atomiser, you tell it how much power (wattage) you want it to output. The variable wattage device will then automatically adjust the power going through the atomiser (the voltage) to produce the power output you need (the wattage).
