Why Airflow So Important On A Vape

Airflow on a vape: it's the simplest way to tailor your vaping experience!

If you've recently made the switch from a pod system or vape pen to a box mod, you might be wondering how the airflow collar on your tank works. Don't sweat it - we've got your back!

Over the years, we've sold and personally tested hundreds of box mod tanks with variable airflow collars. And now, we're here to give you a beginner's guide to airflow.

You'll learn what the airflow holes actually do and how they can completely transform your vaping experience. Plus, we'll show you how to match your vaping style to your airflow, so you can customize your setup to your liking.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to take your vaping game to the next level with our guide to airflow.

Vaping and Air Flow: The Basics

If you're using a box mod tank, you've probably noticed the built-in airflow collar that lets you adjust your vape's air holes. When you twist it, you can either "close" or "open" the holes, controlling how much fresh air enters your device when you hit the fire button.

When your airflow is open or "wide," you'll get a large, cool cloud of vapor. The downside is that the extra air dilutes your e-juice cloud, making it harder to taste the flavors.

But if your airflow is closed or "narrow," your hot e-liquid won't mix with much room-temperature air, so you'll get a dense, tasty cloud of vapor.

Most vapers like to find a "happy medium" airflow setting where the vapor is just the right temperature, they can still taste the flavors, and they're happy with the cloud size. So, experiment with your airflow collar and find your sweet spot!

Closed vs Middle vs Open Air Flow

More Airflow vs Less Airflow: Which Is Better For Vaping?

Getting the perfect vape is all about finding the right amount of airflow, which can vary depending on factors like the VG/PG ratio of your e-liquid, the resistance of your coil, and your personal vaping style.

But don't worry, we've got you covered! The best way to achieve the perfect airflow is by using a tank with a top-notch airflow collar. Our selection of vape tanks offer a wide selection of tanks with adjustable collars, so you can customize your airflow to your liking, no matter what juice or coil you're using.

Airflow For Mouth-to-Lung, Direct-Lung & Cloud Chasing Vapers:

Depending on your vaping style, there are pros and cons to having either a tight or open airflow:

Are you a fan of Mouth-To-Lung (MTL) vaping? If so, you’ll want a narrow airflow to get a mouthful of vapour rather than a big ‘ol lungful. Plus, if you’re into that warm sensation you get from smoking, a narrow airflow will give you that too. To achieve this, just adjust your airflow collar to the smallest setting and voila!

On the other hand, if you prefer Direct to Lung (DTL) vaping (Sub Ohm vaping), you’ll want a slightly wider airflow setting. Be careful not to go too big though, or you might miss out on the flavour of your e-liquid. Start somewhere in the middle and work your way up until you find the perfect balance.

And for all you Cloud Chasers out there, get ready to flex your lungs! You’ll want the highest airflow setting possible to create the biggest, baddest clouds around. Remember, with cloud chasing, the spectacle of the cloud is more important than the flavor of your e-liquid. So crank that airflow all the way up and let the clouds roll in, or out...

Does Airflow Affect Lifespan of Coil?

If you're wondering whether airflow affects the lifespan of your coils, here's the deal: it doesn't. The things that can shorten your coil's lifespan are poor wicking and flooding. But don't worry, we've got some advice on wicking for you right here.

If you vape on a flooded coil for too long, you'll notice some spitback or gurgling, and you'll end up with a buildup of gunk that will eventually ruin the coil. So, if you experience these symptoms, it's worth checking your airflow holes to make sure they're not blocked up with gunk. A quick clean should do the trick.

Remember, proper maintenance is key to a long-lasting coil. So, make sure you're wicking correctly and avoiding flooding.

Does Adjusting The Airflow Affect Nicotine?

If you've ever adjusted the airflow on your vape and thought you were getting more or less nicotine, we've got news for you: that's not actually the case! The amount of nicotine in your e-liquid doesn't change based on your airflow.

However, adjusting your airflow can affect the "throat hit" you feel, depending on how diluted your vape coil is. So, if you feel like you're getting less nicotine when you adjust your airflow, it's likely because you're breathing in more or less fresh air along with your vapor. Keep that in mind next time you're adjusting your airflow.

Think About Airflow Last

If you're looking to achieve that perfect vaping experience, we've got a pro tip for you. Before adjusting your airflow, make sure you've got everything else dialed in first.

That means feeling good about the VG ratio in your e-liquid, the hardware you're vaping on, the resistance of your coil, your wattage, your vaping mode, and your vaping style.

Once you've got all of that down pat, then you can start tweaking your airflow. After all, it's the easiest setting to change on the fly. So, get all of the tricky stuff sorted out first, then enjoy your perfect vape with the perfect airflow setting!
