Monster clouds
Big clouds are a simple matter of resistance and power , right ? Not exactly

Big clouds are a matter of balance between resistance , power , wicking and material . To little power the coils heat slowly and your inhale is well in progres before the coil reaches peak performance .
To much power and the coil vaporizes juice faster than it can be wicked , excessive power of cose will cause dry hits and is readily noticed . Just a couple wats over ideal you initially get a thick cloud that rapidly tapers to a wisp .

The amount of power required to produce big clouds varies dependent on material ( Stainless Steel, Kanthal ,Nichrome ) Gauge coil diameter and wick , a .5 28g A1 coil will heat at far lower wattage than a .5 22g A1 coil . On the same token different metals present different conductive quality Ss will heat at lower wattage than kanthal of the same Gauge and in the same respect Nichrome heat more easily than Ss. This is partially due to composition and partially due to the fact gauge is determined by leng of material podued at said diameter per pre determined weight , therefore 22g Nichrome is not the same diameter as 22g kanthal though to ghe naked eye there seems to be no difference .

The next aspect ofcorse is juice , in simple terms more VG = More cloud

Finally the wick . Organic cotton is more or less mainstream today . Your wick should be snug and you sould feel a bit of drag as you pull the cotton into the coil . The best way to learn this is practice , it in all reality is a self teach thing .


Pardon my intoxicated , wheight and mesure is shotgun gauge , wire gauge is determined by the number of draws reqired to mold a rod of said material to specific diamiter , so though the same diamiter different materials are more or less conductive due to density

Dogs have owners , Cats have staff .

RE: Monster clouds
If I was vaping on a build that was satisfying to my personal needs, yet wanted more cloud production, then the answer would simply be more VG. That's the simplest change that affects the least in terms of required modifications and adjustments.

For anyone who is curious about the difference in cloud production between the two bases, get some plain VG and some plain PG and see for yourself. It's pretty profound.
