Vaping at perfect voltage
« on: April 02, 2011, 11:45:11 AM »
I tried every voltage range from 3.6v to 6.1v with the atty's ranging from 1.5 ohms to 3.8 ohms according to voltage selection.
Right now I am happy using:

  • 4.4v with a 2.0 ohm atty in my 08100 regulator mod which equates to 9.68 watts (2 - 3.7v batteries in series = 7.4v)
  • 4.27v with a 1.8 ohm atty in my booster mod which equates to 10.13 watts. (1 - 3.7v battery boosted)

Both setups are pretty satisfying. Plenty of vapor and not hot.

Yes using a standard mod with no regulator and a freshly charged battery at 4.2v and a 2.0 ohm atty is perfect, but not for too long as the battery starts to discharge to a lower voltage.

My sweet spot is a 2.2 ohm atty at 4.5 volts

Sweet Spot is between 3.7v to 4.1v with a Dual Coil cartomizer. 1.6 to 1.7 ohms.
I was going to say something else about my Sweet Spot but declined. Trying to keep it clean.

 My first atty on my new 3.7v bottomfeeder was a Joye 1.5 LR, and it went kaplooey in 11 days.  Hit like a monster while it lasted.  Is this a normal lifespan for this atty?  Do you think a 1.7 or 1.8 would last longer, or did I just get a dud.  I'm using a 600mah AW high drain, if that matters.  Any advice is appreciated!

I thinks that's actually pretty good for an LR atty.  They usually don't last as long, but it also depends on how much you vape.  I'm a heavy vaper and I can kill a standard atty in that much time.

For me it's 4.35 volts with 2 ohm dual coils on my 8100 vv and 5 volts with 2 ohm boge singles on my booster mods.

There is differently a juice taste difference w/ voltages. I like 2 ohms at about 4v to 4.2 volts For me, anything higher is harsh and less flavoring.

I tend to run 4.5V with my Boge single coil 3 Ohm cartomizers.  Though, I may crank it up a lot higher when I want to take short hits. 

The vapor is just too hot with the multi-coils for my vaping style.  I vape like smoking a tobacco pipe.  What I want is a dual barrel setup for my cartomizers.  That way, I get more vapor, not more heat.  I can come up with a 1->2 connector, but I can't think of an easy way to make a 2->1 mouthpiece that doesn't look like bad plumbing.  Putting two cartos in your mouth is really uncomfortable.

I'm really liking 7-7.5 volts and a 2 ohm DCT. May be a little hot for some but nice flavorful short drags. :thumbsup:

Wow, that's way to hot for me. I don't have a perfect voltage like @gknowes. Depends on my atty/carto and juice.

Yes, it does depend on the atomizer. 

When I made reply #10 quite some time ago, I was using a 3 Ohm Boge cartomizer.  Now I'm using a rebuildable atomizer and they can handle a lot more power than the cartomizers I was using before.  Vapor production is much better and the taste is cleaner.  Right now, I'm at 5.6V with a 1.9 Ohm coil in a tank atomizer.  That's a hybrid wick.  I use a 1.6 Ohm coil in the rebuildable drippers and tend to run those at 5.2 Volts.  Though, I'm always looking for the next better atomizer so who knows what I may be using down the road.

Been running 1.2 Ohms at 4.2V lately.  Somtimes run it up to 4.6V if I feel like a hotter vape.

Been reading about guys running dual sub-ohm coils on mechanical mods.  That's an atomizer resistance like .3 to .4 Ohms.  That's some pretty crazy current demand, 8 to 10 Amps.  There's going to be a lot of power loss on the way to the atomizer with that much current, but it's still going to be 30 some Watts at the atomizer, probably 10 Watts wasted in the battery and connections though.  They're wasting what most people vape with.

That's an easy setup using VW. Things have changed since starting this thread topic when we used V.V. w/ coil resistance tweaking. Some of us still prefer it.

try a variable wattage device.  i know that doesn't really answer your question very well, but i really like them better and they are worth a look.

Boy this thread rose up from the dead.  Even as Breaktru mentioned way back in November of last year, things have changed that much again.

Well seeing its been dredged up and reading Eric's post.

Vanilla tobacco at 7.5w and 1.5ohms

Blackberry at 6.5w and 2ohms

Tweak the air flow on the Aerotank to fine tune.

Had to look at what I said in this thread way back there.  Still vaping with a 1.2 Ohm atomizer, but I tend to run around 5V now, was running a little lower back then.  Don't really adjust for flavors, have a few I like and that's good enough, use the same settings on all of them.

The couple of fruit flavors I have/like are a little subtle compared to a tobacco flavor and just seem to pop if don't cook them to death   ;)
