Ohms, Watts, & Mg’s, Oh My!!!



Here is a question that comes up regardless of a beginner or expert vaper. What ohms should be used for the various milligrams and watt settings for my device? In other word's, What Resistance in the coils should be used on the potency of the liquid, and what power setting should I have the device on? It may sound rather complex and confusing, especially to newbies. Have no fear! Read on, and we hopefully, I will shed some light on the different choices you have, in order to obtain the optimal experience:



The above is a simple formula to explain the relationship between Ohms, Mg’s and Watts. In general, The higher the milligrams, the higher the ohms, and the lower the watts. The lower the milligrams, the lower the Ohms, and the higher the watts. Ohms and Milligrams have a proportional relationship, and both have an inverse relationship to watts.


Also, you can simply adjust the voltage or wattage of the until you get the vapor, flavor and throat hit you desire. You can also experiment with using different resistance coils and combining them with different voltages/wattages.

After all, with most entry-level vape kits, all you need to do is:

  • Check what wattage you can use with the coil in your device

  • Adjust your wattage and airflow until you get the vapor, flavor and throat hit you need.

If you want to get into more detail, here are some terms you can become familiar with:


mAh

A milliampere hour (mAh) is 1000th of an ampere hour (Ah). Both are used as a measure of battery capacity, a higher mAh rating means more capacity. mAh only measures capacity and should not be confused with power.

Amps

The Amp (short for ampere) is a measure of current. An ampere is defined as 6.241*10 18 electrons (1 Coulomb) per second passing through a point in a circuit.

Voltage

Voltage is the amount of potential energy between two points in a circuit. One point will have more charge than the other. This difference in electrical charge between the two points is called voltage.

Watts

Watt is a measure of the amount of power consumed by an electrical device



Ohm (Ω) is a unit of resistance. Essentially, the lower the resistance of your coil, 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 atomizer, and more electricity flows through, you will find the following:

  • more heat is generated at the coil

  • more vapor is generated

  • you may experience a more intense flavor (however, flavors perform differently with different resistance coils)

Depending on your tastes, the above may all be positives! On the negative side:

  • your battery will be drained more quickly

  • battery life may be reduced

  • vape juice will be used more quickly

Obviously, when you use a high resistance coil the opposite will happen:

  • less electricity flow

  • reduced coil heat

  • reduced amount of vapor

But on the plus side:

  • battery life will be longer

  • less e-liquid will be used

  • you will be less likely to get a dry hit.

· you can get a more intense experience by lowering the resistance of your coil.



How wattage affects your vape


The power output of your e-cigarette is measured in wattage. Many e-cigs have features allowing vapers to adjust their vaping wattage. Altering the wattage of your e-cig adjusts the temperature produced by your coil as your e-liquid is heated. In doing so, your e-cigarette can change the flavor, vapor and throat hit you experience.


What wattage should you use

There is a big difference between using a high or low wattage and the best wattage for vaping depends on several factors including:


  • The capabilities of your vaping device

  • There are many electronic cigarettes available to buy, all with different functions and capabilities.

  • These include: Low-powered vape kits




E-cigarettes like cig-a-like vape kits and pen-style e-cigs are designed to closely mimic smoking and often have a pre-set wattage of between 7 and 15W. This is significantly lower than more powerful vape kits with an average range of 50-200W, especially when considering that beginner-friendly devices are often missing the feature to change your wattage.


While vape kits with low, pre-set wattages are perfectly suited to both beginners and convenience-seekers, their lack of personalization is unsuitable for vapers who prefer to fine-tune their vaping experience.

Mid-range e-cigarettes

Intermediate vapers often opt for a higher wattage range with customisable options. Refillable pod and pod mod devices with a range of 40-50W offer a little more personalization that allows vapers to experience the complex notes within a flavor and to experiment with dense vapor.

High-powered e-cigs

Advanced vapers, on the other hand, often opt for the highest wattage range available to them. Box mods and mech mods with greater customization allow vapers to fine-tune their vape to enhance flavors, alter vapor density and adjust throat hit. Because of the amount of customization involved, however, high-powered advanced vape kits are complex and therefore more popular with vapers who have decreased their nicotine intake over time and wish to try new vaping styles and new tricks.


Your preferred vaping style

Vapers most commonly opt for one of two vaping styles: mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung. Your coil is one of the most important components of vaping style and should be chosen to suit your preferred intake method The electrical power of a coil is measured in ohms. The higher the level of ohms, the higher the resistance and the lower the number of amps that can pass through. The lower the ohms, the lower the resistance and the higher the number of amps that can pass through. These settings translate into different inhalation methods:


Mouth-To-Lung




As a general rule of thumb, those who opt for a mouth-to-lung vaping method should opt for higher resistance coils of 1.0ohm and above. This includes 1.0ohm, 1.4ohm, 1.6ohm, 1.8ohm and 2.0ohm. Although every coil is different, the ideal wattage for this resistance level is between 7 and 20W.

The benefits of using a low wattage with a high resistance coil include:

  • Cooler vapor – less wattage equals less heat, making menthol flavors cooler than ever.

  • Discretion – with less vapor production, mouth-to-lung vaping is the more discreet option.

  • Efficient – higher resistance coils require less power and help your battery last longer.


Direct-To-Lung



Typically, direct-to-lung vapers are best served by lower resistance coils of 1.0ohm or less, hence the nickname of sub-ohm vaping. This includes 0.8ohm, 0.6ohm, 0.6ohm, 0.2ohm and 0.15ohm. The ideal wattage for this resistance level is between a minimum of 40W although those seeking the most vapor can adjust their wattage anywhere up to (and sometimes beyond!) 200W.

The benefits of using a higher wattage with low resistance coils include:

· Warmer vapor – high wattage means more heat, making flavors more prominent.

· Increased vapor – more wattage means more vapor which is ideal for vape tricks.



The best wattage for vaping


The best wattage for vaping depends entirely on your vaping preferences. For mouth-to-lung vaping, pair high-resistance coils with a wattage of 7-20W. For direct-to-lung inhaling, pair low-resistance coils with a wattage of 40W or more.


What wattage should I vape at 0.15 ohm?

A 0.15ohm coil is considered one of the lowest resistance coils available and is best suited to high-powered devices with a wattage of 100W+.


Also, remember, You can simply adjust the voltage or wattage of the until you get the vapor, flavor and throat hit you desire. You can also experiment with using different resistance coils and combining them with different voltages/wattages.

After all, with most entry-level vape kits, all you need to do is:

  • Check what wattage you can use with the coil in your device

  • Adjust your wattage and airflow until you get the vapor, flavor and throat hit you need.

The article you wrote is really good, This has helped me a lot. I've been very interested in the difference of Ohms, Watts, and Mg’s recently. There is a very good store. This is there website: TheVapeSocietyCBD.com  If you guys are interested, you can go in and look around and choose the products that are best for you.
