Variable watts
When I vape on 30 watts I notice NO difference in amount of vapor produced as if I vaped on 7 watts. Does this happen to you guys? I'd expect there would be a difference but when I put it on 30 I just get spit back and much more heat but dont notice a change in vapor like most do.

RE: Variable watts
It does not happen to me. I find a noticable difference between 7 watts and 30 watts - I don't understand how you find them the same using the same tank and coil. I get no flavor from 7 watts on a kanger tank with a .5 coil at 7 watts. In fact I prtefer to vape it at 35 watts. So you have totally confused me - of course I'm often confused as senility creeps in.

RE: Variable watts
If your .5 ohm coil vapes the same at 7 watts as it does at 30, there is something very wrong.

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

RE: Variable watts
Your hana might be experiencing issues. I have a clopour mini like that, no matter the setting it's always the same power. Happily mine's stuck on max.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: Variable watts
It sounds as if your mod is stuck at max. power. Try changing the power and see if it changes anything else on the display. If nothing else changes it may well be stuck. If it is stuck I would put the mod in the fridge for an hour - it is amazing what a change in temp. will do to metal innards. It is worth a try and will not do the mod any harm.

RE: Variable watts
Well, I had something sort of similar happen with my Sigelei 30. Seems it has two modes, PWM and DC. In DC it acts like a mech mod. That's what it came set to when I bought it, and I couldn't understand why it seemed the same at 5w as it did at 25w. Switched it to PWM and it was 'normal' again. Does yours have something like that maybe?

RE: Variable watts
I've noticed that my 20w curve and curve mini each give plenty of vapour and flavour at just 8-9 watts yet my 40w grip has to be at around 15w to produce the same vapour but seems to lack the flavour.
