Variable wattage vaping allows you to set your device to a preferred power output. This will then regulate the amount of energy it sends to the coil to create the flavour, throat hit and clouds you prefer.
Generally speaking, lower wattage settings result in cooler, looser clouds, while higher wattage settings produce hotter and denser clouds.
How Variable Wattage Works
Variable Wattage (VW) and variable voltage are both power settings on vape devices that allow you to control exactly how much energy the batteries send to the coils. This changes the flavour, vapour production and throat hit, making it easy to discover your ideal’sweet spot’ for any e-liquid.
A high wattage setting will produce more vapour and give the coil a chance to’re-soak’ between each puff, but it can also cause dry hits and burnt wicks, so you need to find the right balance. Low wattage settings will create less vapour, but they are a great option for new vapers who want to avoid the harshness of higher temperatures.
All atomisers have a recommended wattage range, which you can find by looking at the packaging or checking online. Then you simply choose the VW mode on your mod and use the buttons or dial to adjust the wattage up or down until you get the perfect flavour and vapour output for your personal preference.
Variable Voltage Mode
If you are looking to take your vaping skills to the next level, exploring variable wattage and voltage mode is a great way to customise your setup. It will also help you to get to grips with how your mod, battery and coil work together, which is essential knowledge for any advanced vaper!
In variable wattage mode, you can set a specific power output that will remain the same whenever you press your fire button. The microprocessor will then automatically ramp up to that power output, regardless of the ohms of your coil or tank.
This will give you the opportunity to find the perfect ‘sweet spot’ for your flavour. A lower power setting may allow more subtle flavours to come through and a soft throat hit, while a higher power setting can deliver more intense vapor and quicker onset of effects.
Using a mod that offers temperature control (TC) mode can help you avoid the dangers of dry hits. As you use your device, it will heat up and the coil’s resistance rises as a result. This can burn the cotton and burn your e-liquid, leading to an unpleasant experience that wastes money, time and vape juice.
This feature works by monitoring the coil’s temperature and adjusting the power leaving your batteries to prevent it from reaching that dangerous level. You can also set a minimum and maximum temperature for the atomizer to avoid reaching these levels.
While many people prefer to vape in wattage mode because it is simpler, some find that a higher TC setting gives them a smoother, more enjoyable experience and more flavour.

Some smokers who make the switch to vaping are looking for a throat hit that mimics the sensation of smoke in their mouth and throat. The type of e-liquid you choose, the PG/VG ratio in your liquids, and your choice of vape device can affect how much of a throat hit you experience while you are vaping.
Using a variable wattage device will give you more control over the power that is transferred through your coil, allowing you to fine-tune your vaping setup for your preferred flavour and throat hit intensity. The heat that is produced by your coil can also impact the intensity of your e-liquid’s flavour, so experiment with different temperature and wattage settings to find the best one for you.
For example, using a lower wattage with a VG-based e-liquid will produce thicker clouds and allow for a more concentrated throat hit while a higher wattage with a PG-based liquid will result in a smoother vaping experience.
