What Goes Into Developing a Temperature Control MOD?

Temperature Control MODs are still some of the newest innovations in the vaping industry. Temp control involves the regulation of heat that gets to the coils. Unlike wattage control devices, temperature control devices detect a change in the resistance of the coils, following which they determine whether to lower or restrict flow of heat to the coils. In this way, temperature control prevents dry hits and damage to your coils and even self-injury. If you’re considering trying temperature control vaping, especially if want to enter the world of sub-ohming, then here are some basic facts you must understand about TC, the MODs used for it, and even the coils for this vape style. These are not typically effected by battery type or chargers that are used.

The Science and Technology Behind TC Vaping

 

TC functions on the basic principle; resistance is directly proportional to temperature. So, what does this mean? It means that the resistance of your coils will increase as temperature increases and vice versa. Therefore, if resistances of your coils rise, it means that the temperature must have increased. The temp control function detects changes in coil resistance and uses this to denote a change in the temperature.

TC devices allow you to set your desired temperature, meaning that you are still in control of your vape. The chosen temperature is the maximum that the TC device will allow throughout your vape. As a result, you achieve a consistency in the quality of your vape and do not have to worry about the devastating effects of overheating.

However, you have to note that this principle only applies to specific alloy. Therefore, when getting into TC vaping, it is advisable that you ditch your Kanthal wires and opt for Nickel, Stainless steel or Titanium wires. So, Why not use Kanthal wires? Kanthal (FeCrAl) is full of impurities. The impurities cause a wide scattering of the Kanthal electrons, jeopardizing its conduction performance. In fact, there are so many impurities in Kanthal that you would heat this wire but the resistance would not change.

How to Select the Perfect Temperature

 

There many factors that come into play when choosing a suitable temperature for TC devices. First, you have to take in to consideration the type of TC device you are using. Also, it will depend on the components of the e-juice that you are vaping at that particular moment. But a good rule of thumb is to stick to the minimum temperature.

Most e-juices contain propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, ethanol and or water. These liquids have varying boiling or vaporization points. Water has a boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius while ethanol has a boiling point of 78 °C. On the other hand, Propylene glycol has a vaporization point of 188 °C while vegetable glycerin vaporizes at 290 °C.

The flavoring and nicotine content will also affect the minimum set temperature. You will find that to get that menthol taste, you have to set temperatures higher than you would with a banana flavor. Also, if the manufacturer uses an exhauster (responsible for making the different flavors more pronounced) or a sweetener, this will affect the minimum temperature set. But even then, manufacturers make you work easy by setting most of these TC devices with a temperature reading of between 200 °C and 250 °C.

Your vaping style also affects the minimum temperature. For example, most vapers that like to take short puffs prefer to set their temperature around 250 °C. This is because, with shorter puffs, it becomes hard for the coils to heat homogenously. Consequently, this causes a buildup of gunk as the e-liquid does not vaporize adequately.

What Are The Benefits of Temperature Control?

 

 

Additionally, Temperature Controlled vaping is very easy to comprehend. Besides, everything is pre-set for you and your only job is to regulate the temperature setting so that you can achieve your desired vape. Therefore, if you are looking to enhance your vapor and flavor output, this is definitely the way to go. Just ensure that you get a TC mod and TC coils to go with it. TC coils for most of the TC mods are readily available. However, if you cannot get the right TC coil for your device, but already have a re-buildable deck, you can buy nickel or pure Titanium wires and have fun rebuilding your coils.

Choosing the right vaporizer

If you are new to the world of vaping and e-cigarettes and with so many types of vaporizers out there, choosing the right one for your needs may be difficult and challenging. Generally, there are several different styles and designs of vaporizers, which you can help you in curbing your desire for nicotine. Whether you are looking for a tobacco vaporizer, or aromatherapy blends vaporizer or even a legal herbs vaporizer, there are certain things you should consider to ensure you get the right one for you. Here are some useful tips to help you choose the best portable vaporizers:

 

1. Size and Portability

Large vaporizers can sometimes be difficult to store and conceal discreetly. Usually, the portability of the vaporizer you will choose will entirely depend on your lifestyle. Despite the fact that portable models are convenient, they also tend to need longer preparation time. Tabletop vapes are best indoor or home use, as a few require a wall outlet, while portable ones are great for commutes or travel. Hands down the best discreet and portable(pocket vape) was the Pax 2.Some of these devices are actually disguised in such a way to resemble other products – this is perfect for smokers who seek a simple, discreet vaporizer designs.

2. Heat Type

Vaporizers are normally heated using two methods (conduction or convection). In this case, conduction models use heating elements that directly heat the substance (the herbal blend). The conduction models are smaller and less expensive, but they come with higher risk of burning and require more work. On the other hand, convection models use warm air to heat the herbal blend. This method allows for maximum temperature control and offers even heating.

3. Style

It’s very important to find a design and style that will be easier for you to use, especially if you are new to vaping. There are several different types of vaporizers out there that are quite simple and easy to use, but the only issue is that most of them are not as portable and are often expensive. Additionally, some of these products require the smoker to have a certain level of experience. For example, tube and flame designs require the user to draw from the vape with a controlled inhalation. If you will take your time and experiment some devices that are slightly difficult to operate, it’s quite possible learn the right techniques.

4. Price Isn’t Everything

Deciding how much you are willing to invest is actually one way of choosing the right portable vaporizer for your needs. Usually, different vaporizers come vary in their prices based on various factors, such as design, manufacturer’s reputation, and size just to mention a few. However, it’s very important to keep in mind that the price doesn’t necessarily determine the quality of the product. So, it’s a good idea if you first consider the quality of some devices you want before comparing their prices. Generally, there is always something for everyone – the cheapest ones start as from as low as $50 and the-top-of-the-line designs can go up to $500 or even higher.

5. Warranty

Even high-end products can have some minor functionality issues, which are usually covered under warranty. That is why it’s very important and essential to buy a vaporizer that comes with a manufacturer’s warranty and/or some type of guarantee. If you buy one from an authorized dealer, they should provide you information and guidance on how to have the issue resolved. Make sure you are provided with the warranty on the date of purchase.

6. Temperature Regulators

Some vaping devices have well integrated temperature controls that minimize the risk of combustion. Dials and digital displays are the two basic types of temperature regulators. Because temperature control solely depends on the user’s ability to draw regulated breath, then you might want to choose a vaporizer that comes with temperature regulator to start practicing.

7. Power Supply

There are two main sources of power supply for these devices. Flame-powered vaping devices either are heated directly with a lighter or feature a built-in mechanism of butane. Electricity is the second type of power source that can be supplied by a battery or a wall-outlet power. Portable vaporizers are often battery-powered models and are rechargeable.

Conclusively, there are many stores and outlets across the internet that offer a wide selection of vaporizers just for everyone. However, it’s very important to do some research about the product before buying it. With all these great tips, finding the right vaping device for your needs is within your reach.
