Why You Shouldn't Forget About Airflow: A Key Element of Vaping
One of the numerous reasons vapers choose to use devices of better quality and sophistication is the high degree of customization available to create the perfect vaping experience for them. Things like coil resistance, materials, and of course the device itself all play an effect on how each vape session is experienced. However, the element that makes the most important difference is airflow. It’s very easy to toy around with the airflow to find that sweet spot.
Airflow affects many elements of your vaping experience. From flavor intensity, to the production of the vapor itself, taking some time to experience with different settings can be a unique way to change up your vaping session until you find the ideal setting.
Why Airflow is Important
When vaping first started getting popular, the hardware was standard and gave a pretty similar effect no matter how you used it. Additionally, older devices typically offered a sub-par vape session with little room for customization. As we all know, the vaping industry has evolved to become a top-notch industry and we take our products very seriously. Today’s hardware can be completely customized, so basically no two vaping experiences need to be the same. We can customize down to the smallest detail.
Airflow is one element that can get overlooked as far as how great of an alteration it can have on your vape sessions. First and foremost, we know that the level of air in your tank changes the temperature and cloud size. The increase in the volume of airflow allows you to create larger clouds of vapor. A higher volume of airflow coming across the coils and then being inhaled through the drip tip will decrease the level of old vapor, allowing for fresh vapor and larger clouds to be created without using a lot of excess e-juice.
Two Styles of Vaping
There are two styles of vaping and each is affected by airflow in a different way.
- First, there is Direct-to-Lung vaping (DTL). This is pretty much the typical way people vape, drawing the vapor directly into their lungs.
- The second type uses the mouth as a filter before the vapor is inhaled into lungs. This type of called Mouth-to-Lung vaping (MTL).
Testing Different Levels of Airflow
You need to know what works for you as a vaper.
- For Direct-to-Lung vapers, the focus is typically on the vapor production itself. DTL vapers can change up air flow to gain higher vapor production and fuller clouds. However, the greater the airflow the less taste will be mixed in the airflow.
- Using less airflow is great for anyone focused on the taste of the vape juice, so it is perfect for Mouth-to-Lung vapers. Constricted airflow will offer a vape that provides the full extent of the taste and flavors.
There are, of course, many options in between. Playing with them will help you find the perfect amount of airflow for your personal preferences.
The Airflow Choices Are Yours
At the end of the day, one of the greatest things about vaping is the ability to switch things up to meet your exact specifications. From taste, or the vapor itself, to cloud amount, we choose vaping for the experience we get and for the ability to have variety.
Airflow often gets forgotten to customize that experience. We often focus on things like the VG/PG ratio, the materials of the coil itself, the device itself and the level of power. Yet, while airflow isn’t the flashiest of things to mess around with, it can hugely modify your vaping experience.
So, the next time you sit down for a truly great vaping experience, test out some different constraints of airflow and see how the airflow levels change the vaping. You may find that different levels are preferred for different flavors.
