One of the many reasons that so many people find vaping to be such a pleasant experience is that it truly engages all five senses. We measure the enjoyment of vaping based on things like the visual impact of large vape clouds and the delicious taste of different juices.
Of course, knowing the basics of how the five senses are affected by vaping can also help you determine if something is wrong. For instance, a harsh, burnt taste can tell you that perhaps you haven't adequately primed your coil.
Most of us associate vaping with taste above all other senses. We select our e-liquids based on what flavors they contain. In fact, most of us are willing to spend a good deal of money on ensuring that the e-liquids that we buy taste great.
Today, there are countless e-liquid brands that each boast their own variety of unique flavors. Because of this, we approach vaping as a hobby in which we can experiment with different kinds of tastes that suit our palates.
By knowing the pleasant taste that we can expect from vaping, we’re able to determine right away if something is amiss. E-liquid should never taste burnt, harsh, or similar to chemicals. If it does, you may need to clean out your tank. Another possibility is that you have neglected to prime your coil properly.
Like food, e-liquids provide both a taste and an accompanying smell. One of the reasons that vaping is more enjoyable than smoking cigarettes is because of its pleasant aroma. Plus, unlike tobacco smoke, the smell of the vapor that comes from the flavors of the e-liquid will dissipate within minutes.
However, if the smell of the vapor is burnt or harsh, it may be time to clean out your tank. When the sugars in e-liquid gunk up the parts of a tank, they begin to burn and cause a harsh taste and smell.
The act of vaping is enjoyable for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons is the hand-to-mouth action involved. By holding the device in our hands, we experience some sort of satisfaction that can't exactly be explained.
However, it's also important to know when your sense of touch is telling you that something is wrong with your device. If your device feels hot to the touch, your battery may be overheating. Often, this is a sign that it's time to replace your battery or give your device a break.
There's something oddly pleasant about the whirring sound of vaping. A device that’s functioning normally should produce an even, soft "whooshing" sound when it is fired.
If you hear a sputtering or gurgling noise, it may be time to replace the coil. This sound may also mean that you poured too much e-liquid into your tank.
There are hundreds of videos on the internet that’re devoted to impressively large vape clouds. Most vaping hobbyists take pride in their ability to produce enormous clouds of vapor. For many, these clouds are as enjoyable as the taste of the e-liquid that they’re vaping.
If you can't seem to get those thick, fluffy clouds of vapor, try an e-liquid that contains more vegetable glycerin (VG) than Propylene Glycol (PG). VG is a thick, viscous material that adds to the density of the vapor.
As you can see, vaping is about so much more than purchasing a delicious flavor of e-liquid. In fact, it's one of the few hobbies that again, truly affects all five senses. By understanding the five senses of vaping, you’ll be able to know right away if something is wrong with your device, or you just might need to get a stronger or more balanced e-juice flavor for instances.
