Question about vv/vw
« on: September 08, 2014, 12:55:39 AM »
I recently picked up a Itazte vv. I've been playing with volt and watt settings and I find a better vape at different setting as far as the flavor goes from one juice to another but not sure I can tell the difference between V and W.
Can someone enlighten me as to the differences I'd experience in my vape.

A common question and always fun to answer.  The short answer is there really isn't any difference.  You just set it where you like it and you're done.

Here's the technical answer.  You have to look at what Volts and Watts are.  Volts generate a current flow based on resistance and thereby an amount of power.  Watts are the power the comes as a result of the resistance and the applied voltage.  I'll spare you the math on that. 

So, by regulating to Volts, you get a power level depending on the resistance you use.  When regulating to Watts, you're accounting for the resistance so you'll get the same power level regardless of the applied resistance. 

The main difference is that Watts accounts for the resistance and Volts requires you to manually account for the resistance.  When the rubber hits the road, it's simply a matter of scale.  You can achieve the same result with either Watts or Volts, but Volts requires you account for the applied resistance.

Thanx Craig.

So let me ask this, will I get more time between charges from on to the other, I'm guessing not enough to make a difference.

No difference unless you are using a different amount of  power when switching between Volts and Watts.  Run time is all about the amount of power you use, more power, less run time, less power, more run time.  Vapor production is also all about the amount of power you use.

As I figured, well at least now I can tune my power to fit my juice which I'm finding a flavorful upside compared to a non regulated device.

Oh yes, there's a huge difference (IMO) between a regulated and unregulated mod.  For one, you can easily tune your preferred power level with a regulated device.  It's possible to do it with an unregulated mod by adjusting atomizer resistance, but it's sure a hell of a lot easier turning a dial than rebuilding an atomizer.  Then there's the dreaded battery fade, which you don't get with a regulated device. 

There's people that still prefer a mechanical mod for good reason, but I'll never use one myself because I find the features of a regulated device just not possible to do without.

This is my first regulated, I'll never go back except to keep the un regulated one I have for back up.
