14 Sep How to choose the right wattage for your E-Liquid
A common misconception, for a newcomer to the vape community, is that they can vape different liquid at the same wattage. Unfortunately, they are wrong, as eLiquids come in a range of viscosity, which depends on the Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerol (VG) ratio. An eLiquid high in VG ratio would be relatively thick compared to one that is high in PG. An eCigarette works by vaporising eLiquid, hence creating vapour. A viscous liquid would require more heat to vaporise. If you try to vape a much thicker liquid on low wattage, it is likely that you will be taking in mostly air, and sometimes even the liquid itself, rather than vapour.
Some basic rules to go by:
If you take fast draws
A high wattage will ensure the liquid vaporises at an adequate speed. By not increasing the wattage, you risk drawing just air, or possibly liquid, instead of vapour.
If you take slow draws
A lower wattage will be sufficient. However, if too low, you may draw mostly air.
