Have you ever experienced a very harsh, unpleasant taste during a vape session and wondered what happened and why it tastes different? You probably were a victim of a dry hit, which may seem innocent but can be potentially hazardous to your health.

A dry hit can happen when the coils inside your e-cigarette get too hot. Although you may think there is nothing you can do to prevent it, you can! All you have to do is buy an e-cigarette device that has temperature control. Read on to learn more about temperature control vaping and how it can dramatically improve your smoking experience.

What Is Temperature Control Vaping?

Temperature control vaping is a safe and convenient way to prevent the atomizer coil in your device from overheating. The technology can automatically detect when the coils go over a certain temperature and immediately decrease the temperature or shut off by itself before the coil or wick is damaged.

How You Can Benefit From Temperature Control Vaping

There are many benefits to temperature control vaping. When your e-cigarette atomizer coils overheat and start to dry out your device won't be able to produce vapor. This means you will have to refill your tank or buy a new one. Even if you salvage the tank and try to vape again afterward the flavor may be distorted and taste like it's burnt.

It's estimated that mods with temperature control only uses a fraction of the power used in similar devices that don't have it. In short, temperature control technology is an easy way to extend the life of the coils inside your device.

How Does Temperature Control Vaping Work?

In order to try temperature control vaping, you should use a device and tank that supports it. Typically, temperature control only works with materials like nickel, stainless steel, and titanium coils because it's easier for e-cigarette devices to monitor their temperature. The technology can gauge the temperature of the resistance before you start to vape and continue to assess it after you begin to use it. A common vaping temperature is usually within the range of 200°C- 250°C (392°F – 480°F) and can go up or down in small increments of 5°C or 10°F.

Tips to Help With Temperature Control Vaping

If you're interested in temperature control vaping, good news! There are more e-cigarette devices on the market now that will allow you to configure your device according to a specific temperature.

To get started, check with the manufacturer of your device and tank to see if they sell temperature control models. You can also see if your current tank has a coil head that you can replace with nickel and titanium.

There are many mods or vaporizers on the market that support temperature control especially now that many people in the vaping community know they can avoid getting dry hits. The prices for mods or vaporizers usually range from $30 to $40 dollars on the low end to a couple hundred dollars. The price for each model will vary but it's important that you carefully evaluate each device since some of them have different features. You can also ask your friends for their opinions and check to see if the product has any available online reviews before you buy it. Luckily there are enough products available that you should have not trouble finding one that works for you.

Once you have the appropriate device and tank, make sure your vaporizer is programmed at the right temperature control mode according to the type of coil inside your tank. Remember, some tanks can support both nickel and titanium coils while others require you to use either one individually.

Next, turn on the base resistance after you attach the tank to your vape mod so the temperature control vaping function can get an accurate temperature reading. Before you choose a temperature, consult your e-cigarette's manufacturer to get their recommendations. After you know what temperature you want to set it at, adjust it on your device.

If you still aren't sure what temperature to use, we recommend that you err on the side of caution and choose the lowest setting and gradually work your way up over a period of time. This will allow you to see how your delicious e-liquid flavors taste at different temperature levels and help you decide which one you prefer. If it gets too hot, all you have to do is lower the temperature of the coil.

In Conclusion

We know how bummed and frustrated you may feel when the coils in your e-cigarette overheat. Besides making your favorite e-liquid taste horrible, it can also ruin your tanks. Many people enjoy temperature control vaping since it can help you save money since you won't always have to run out and buy a replacement. It can also dramatically improve your overall vaping experience and allow you to fully enjoy the taste of your e-liquid.
