26 Jan Why Does My E-Cigarette Make a Popping Sound?
Often, a popping sound may be heard coming from your e-cigarette whilst vaping, and you may question what it is. Fear not, as it is neither harmful to you, nor your device – in fact, it’s assurance your e-cigarette is working correctly. The popping sound usually occurs when your e-liquid makes direct contact with a hot atomiser coil, similar to when a drop of water makes contact with a hot pan.
The volume and amount of popping sounds produced varies from product to product. Some e-cigarettes have potential to be vaped on high wattage (usually sub-ohm vaping devices), which will most likely produce a more obvious popping and crackling sound. The result is a large amount of e-liquid being vaporised extremely quickly, and at a high wattage. Devices that use low wattage (i.e. iBreathe Pro e-cigarette) are less prone to producing popping sounds.
Finding the correct wattage for your device is essential for a more pleasant vape.
