STEAM, HIT AND FLAVOR: WHAT TO CHOOSE?
Each vaper has a style of vaping and seeks either the flavour with an electronic cigarette, the HIT with the electronic cigarette or even to make a maximum of vapour. The material or the liquid used will have a primordial role. Thanks to this news, you will know how to have more taste through an appropriate electronic cigarette.
The sensation of hit specific to the electronic cigarette can be felt differently depending on the vaper. This sensation in the throat that we are all looking for, the hit, can come from the flavour of a premium and complex e-liquid, from the rate of nicotine or an impressive production of vapour.
And so the material takes a significant place in the answer to this question. Rebuildable atomizer, clearomizer … their design can play a big role in the rendering of flavours for electronic cigarettes or in the production of vapour.
So, is it better to choose steam or flavour? And which e-cigarette material to choose accordingly?
Choose your electronic cigarette for flavours
If the hit in the electronic E-cigarette comes mainly from nicotine, for some vapers the flavours are all the more important. The hit that certain flavours can provide is not to be neglected and its effect helps with smoking cessation either. Two questions often come up: “how to have more taste with an electronic cigarette?”, “what is the best flavour coil?”… The answer lies partly in the choice of material.
Why head for a “flavour” hit
As said before, nicotine is not the only element that can allow an electronic cigarette user to do without tobacco. Many brands of e liquids have moved towards complex and very elaborate recipes for the most demanding vapers.
The taste used in your electronic cigarette can therefore play a very big role in the process of quitting smoking.
Like a nose in perfumery, each note of a complex e-liquid, or said premium, can bring this feeling of satiety and trigger what is called the reward system of the brain. You could also call it a flavour-headed hit.
The vaper who prefers the flavours of his electronic cigarette to mountains of vapour will therefore go more naturally towards American or French e liquids with multiple flavours. But without the appropriate material, even the craziest of premium e-liquids will not be able to enhance their full potential. We advise you to opt for a versatile model, and that with an electronic cigarette ideal for beginners.
Which electronic cigarette for flavours?
E-cigarette manufacturers have been able to improve over time the quality of their coils and the cotton used to create flavour-directed electronic cigarettes.
To make the most of a premium e-liquid, you will have to go for an atomizer or clearomizer that is not too airy and has a narrower drip tip. The airflow adjustment will then also be important. On an aerial-type atomizer, care must be taken to tighten the air inlets for a more concentrated vapour in taste. The Tigon clearomiser by Aspire, for example, will perfectly fulfil all these criteria.
You can get a flavour-directed hit with a rebuildable atomizer, but you have to choose it well.
Rebuildable atomizers with the tank ( RTA ) are the best placed to provide great sensations in terms of flavours. Then favour the RTA atomizers in a mono coil with an airflow not too big and a shorter chimney.
In this category, the Geekvape Zeus X RTA atomizer plays in the big leagues and offers a hit with perfectly transmitted flavours.
As for the drippers, you will have to opt for reduced air inlets and a narrower bell so as not to lose flavour with your electronic cigarette. The mono coil is always de rigueur and in our eyes, it is the best assembly for a flavour-directed vape!
The advantage of a tasty vape is that it does not require very high power and resistances between 0.9 and 2.0 ohm will do the job perfectly.
Which e-liquid to choose?
For an electronic cigarette with flavour, the choice of e-liquid will also be important. We advise you to opt for an e-liquid in 50/50 PG/VG. This is the perfect compromise for a pleasant flavour rendering, the propylene glycol bringing out the aromas better.
Choose your e-cigarette for vapour
Steam, more steam and more steam! There are many e-cigarettes today offering mind-blowing wattages and reconstructable atomizers supporting ever more power.
Choosing an e-cigarette for vapour
In recent years we have witnessed an impressive evolution of the e-cigarette and especially the one that would make the most vapour. And this is to the delight of cloud-chasing enthusiasts.
But why always more steam? The visual plays a very important role in quitting smoking, and those mountains of vapour can create as much satisfaction as the flavours.
The hit created by the vapour of an electronic cigarette launched at full power is often very appreciated by more experienced vapers. And when rebuildable hardware is used, some knowledge of resistive wires is required.
Which e-cigarette for vapour?
When it comes to vapour production, vapers tend more naturally towards rebuildables.
It will be necessary to link a good electronic mod offering great powers, or a mechanical mod, as well as good autonomy! Between dripper, RDTA and RTA the choices are multiple, but the resistive wire is chosen and the cotton will also play a very important role.
The recipe for a vapour-directed e-cigarette? A low resistance value, even more, exotic resistive wires, incredible montages and a suitable electro or mechanical Mod.
Manufacturers, such as Smoktech for example, have also been able to offer atomizers with pre-made coils that can produce maximum vapour and support high powers. For this, the airflow is wider and wide open, without forgetting an equally wide chimney and a drip-tip accordingly: shorter and wider. The TV range is a great success in this category, especially with the TFV8 Baby v2 Clearomiser by Smoktech.
For this type of material, we recommend the use of PEI drip tips for perfect heat insulation.
E-liquid, vapour and VG
If the material and sometimes the knowledge in reconstructable are important, the rate of PG / VG of the e-liquid is also important to make a maximum of vapour. VG (vegetable glycerin) will be the main ingredient of the e-liquid to be chosen like the 20/80 PG/VG e liquids. More vapour at the expense of flavours, but we will see in the next point that it is possible to combine the two.
Electronic cigarette between hit, flavour and vapour
Contrary to what one might think, the electronic cigarette is not only vapour or flavour. There are multiple settings to nuance your vape and get a happy medium.
There is no perfect setting for an e-cigarette that combines hit, flavour and vapour. This will of course depend on what the vaper is looking for.
The choice of the drip tip, the adjustment of the air inlets and even the choice of the resistive wire in stainless steel or kanthal for the rebuildable can make it possible to transform an e-cigarette made for the production of vapour into a jewel of flavour.
Manufacturers have also been able to create hybrid e-cigarettes that can use different resistances, and offer clouds of vapour or palettes of flavours and tastes. And for some models, even link the two.
And you, rhaveher e-cigarette flavour or vapour?
