Attempting to get the best flavour or maximise what you get from your vape juice is sometimes referred to as flavour-chasing, and those who are constantly concerned about getting the best taste from their vape are known as flavour-chasers.
One of the most appealing things about vaporising compared to smoking is that the juice is flavoured. There are so many different tastes to choose from that nobody could ever hope to try them all. In the meantime, though, there’s no harm in trying to get the best flavour that you can.
In this article, we’re going to outline some of the best tips for anyone hoping to maximise the amount of flavour that they’re getting out of their vape.
Manage Wattage and Temperature
The wattage is the amount of power flowing through your vape, and if you set the wattage too high then you run the risk of burning your vape juice or, worse, burning your coil. If you burn your coil then you’ll have gross tasting hits until you replace your coil or get a new vape.
It’s best to start at a lower temperature and work your way up. Having a high temperature does help people blow huge clouds but sometimes this comes at the expense of flavour.
Again, for people hoping to blow huge clouds, airflow is a big factor. Unfortunately, if you’re hoping to get more flavour than clouds, you’re going to want to reduce your airflow a bit. The lower the airflow, the denser and tastier your vape hit will be.
Choose a Good Coil
Another thing to be cautious of is the type of coil that you choose. Some of the best coils for people hoping to maximise the flavour of their vape are bottom-coils – these work with gravity and allow the vapour to build up so it’s dense and tasty. Top-coil clearomizers are becoming used less often because they don’t provide as much flavour as some other coils.
It’s also important to consider the materials that you use for your wick. Silica, which used to be standard, isn’t as popular anymore because it tends to limit the flavour of the e-juice that you’re using. For this reason, cotton is generally considered the best wicking for flavour.
Try Juices With More PG
Some people report that they have a better flavour when they’re using an e-juice that’s richer in propylene glycol. A good ratio is 50/50, but some people prefer to use as much as 60 or 70%. It’s important to note that vapes with significantly higher amounts of PG may also contribute to coughing, so find a level that works for you.
Keep It Clean
It’s important to keep all parts of your vape clean if you want to have a reliably tasty vaping experience. Make sure that you take time to regularly clean your wicks, your coils, and your tanks, otherwise the flavours will start to dwindle.
Keep In Fresh
You’ve gotta keep it so fresh and so clean. Clean. If you let your e-juice get stale, then chances are you’re not going to be able to enjoy the same delicious flavour that you did when you first purchased it.
In a Wrap
If you follow all the above tips, you'll certainly be able to enjoy the flavour of your e-juice for a much longer period of time. All it takes is a little care and preparation. Good luck and happy vaping!
