Cloud chasing has become popular in the vaping community and it has gotten to a point where events and competitions are being held to determine the best cloud chasers. Cloud chasing involves exhaling dense clouds of vapor and in the cloud chasing world, the thicker, the better.
To successfully attain a dense cloud of vapor during exhalation, cloud chasers should consider several factors such as the type of juice they are using, and the ratios of the ingredients, the tank, and coil that your device has. The basics to achieving dense clouds involve having a higher VG to PG ratio in your e-juice and maximizing airflow in your device. Another very important factor for cloud chasing is plenty of power and therefore vapers from all over the world are going for mods that have up to 100W.
The bottom line is that more power creates bigger clouds and this is the primary reason why cloud chasers prefer to use high watt mods. When you vape at 100W, you produce bigger and denser clouds than you would obtain if you were vaping at lower wattages. How does high wattage help in the production of thick clouds? When you increase the power that is flowing through your devices coils, you increase the amount of heat that is generated, and this is one of the reasons why you also need maximum airflow to produce dense clouds. It is advisable to use a sub-ohm atomizer because they can cope with the high-power settings.
Another way that cloud chasers can produce massive clouds from their mods is having maximum airflow, which majorly keeps your coils cool. Getting maximum airflow through your coils enables you to keep the temperature at a minimum. The reason why low temperatures are important is to avoid your wick from burning because of too much power or deficient airflow.
Apart from preventing your wick from burning, sufficient airflow brings a fresh flow of air and this encourages compression of the vapor into a cloud. Maximum airflow also gives your mod a chance to make more vapor by condensing back some vapor into e-liquid. When e-liquid is vaporized, the space above the coil becomes saturated with vapor and the only way to create more vapor is if some of it condenses back, if you have a constricted airflow, the saturation prevents more vapor from being produced. However, maximum airflow from your mod allows the condensed vapor to be replaced by the newly formed vapor, hence, giving you more vapor and enabling you to exhale denser clouds.
Cloud chasing in the vaping world has become more and more popular, and while some people may be opposed to it, for some it is more of a lifestyle than it is a hobby. If you are new to vaping and cloud chasing is something that you would consider, then there are some precautions that you should be aware of.
First, always ensure that you use the right equipment to minimize chances of a vaping accident; do research before you attempt to start cloud chasing to ensure that your vaping experience does not become hazardous. When you finally begin to cloud chase, always be cautious about the battery. If it begins to feel too hot, then it is best that you stop and let the mod cool off before using it again.
