RE: Hey Vapers!
Hi and welcome Courtney.

It does take a bit of getting used to.

I imagine you are using a liquid that is very high in propylene glycol (PG). Likely 60-70%

If you try a liquid that contains more vegetable glycerine (VG) it is likely to be much less harsh on your throat and produce better clouds.

It may also be that you are finding the nicotine level in the liquid a bit too high. It might be worth experimenting with a slightly lower nicotine level.

Hi and welcome Courtney,

Were you a tobacco / analog cigarette smoker before? Or did you go straight for the vaping?

RE: Hey Vapers!
That's a great mod that will grow with you for a long time.

I can't help much with the temp control function, I'm a traditional "power level" vaper.  But I have some experience with that unit in wattage mode.

With the 1.0 ohm Kanthol coil, you want the airflow roughly half open, maybe less, and the power around 15 watts.  With the .4 ohm Kanthol coil, you want the airflow wide open and the power between 30 and 36 watts and the airflow pretty much wide open.

You want juice that is between 60/40 and 70/30 VG/PG.  With the 1 ohm coil, nicotine content as high as 18 is passable, but I'd recommend a 12.  With the .4 ohm coil, 6 is very doable, but most people land at a 3 pretty quick.

This will make more sense as you get used to vaping.  Welcome to TVF!

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Hey Vapers!
You need to make sure your airflow is open - it sounds like it is closed off. Also you need to be vaping at the correct watts for the coil. The harshness could be due to a nic level that is just too high for the wattage.

RE: Hey Vapers!
Hi Courtney, I was working in Louisiana this past summer. it was very beautiful, but I can't remember ever being so hot. I met some great people there. I learned about coon-asses, and what it means to be from south of I-10. lol

How about an update on your vaping? Has any of the advise so far helped?

It's not as easy to get started as it seems... there is a bit you need to know. But you are on the right track - joining TVF and asking questions. Let us know how you are doing.
