Since most smokers or ex-smokers use vaporizers which employ a mouth-to-lung methodology, then it stands to reason that hobbyists and non-smokers would prefer to seek an avenue designed for direct-to-lung vaping. Since the end goal is flavor and cloud production, the desire is the opposite of mouth-to-lung vaping, which has less-pronounced wattage for better throat hits. In contrast, for hobbyist vapers, it’s all about the power!
The reason and science behind this in quite simple. Since vaporizers operate under the principle of “heat of vaporization,” which is the energy needed for one gram of a liquid to vaporize without a change in pressure. Generally for a vaper, the more e-liquid means more intense flavors. But this will also require an increase in energy to compensate. Therefore, it’s unavoidable from a hobbyist’s perspective, and a vaporizer must not fall when it comes to output.
Regardless of which style you employ for vaping, Medusa Juice has you covered. We stay on top of all the latest equipment, newest innovations and hottest tricks being done by vapers all around the world.
On the technical side, we are talking about a platform which is the complete opposite of what a mouth-to-lunger would draw from. Instead of a high resistance, low wattage configuration, direct-to-lung vapers require a low resistance, high wattage combo. Which translates to a steady stream of electrical current from the battery to the sub-ohm atomizer, resulting in substantial heat energy as compared to high resistance atomizers.
Direct To Lung
There is a significant industry-based advantage for the direct-to-lung vapers. If you were to do a quick Google search on vaping or vaporizers, you would find one recurring theme becomes all too evident. It seems that the vape sector is geared towards direct-to-lung-vaping. If you then did another search on vaping mods, you would find that more often than not, sub-ohm tanks and atomizers are advertised, rather than high resistance platforms.
We’re not trying to say that mouth-to-lung specialty vaporizers are going to out of style or won’t continue being used. Rather, let’s try to think of it this way, for years, it was not at all uncommon for cars to be equipped with manual transmissions as standard equipment. Now, not only is the automatic transmission standard, but most cars today are improved in safety, emissions and are more comfortable from the factory.
This can be applied to vaporizers as well. I mentioned it before, but let me say again that one of the key advantages of the mouth-to-lung methodology is that it is more efficient and less intensive on the battery. Similarly, a manual transmission-equipped car is typically more fuel-efficient and should put less stress on such important components as brake pads and rotors. Remember I said “should”.
To be honest, most of the demand is generated by e-devices which can make the most of the straight-to-lung process. This shouldn’t be surprising given another advantage enjoyed by the hobbyist and non-smoker crowd , the cultural edge.
If you watch vaping demonstration videos, you can’t help but to notice one important factor, and that is vapor production. Both cloud chasers and cloud gazers find there is nothing more awe-inspiring than watching regular folks emit a plume that is the length of the vaper doing the emissions. If there are ways of keeping track, I am unaware of any statistics on this particular issue. Nonetheless, I would bet that many hobbyists got turned onto vaping after watching a cloud demo. They are quite fascinating to watch.
These unique, mind-blowing tricks which can only be accomplished through the direct-lunging process appeal to nearly everyone. They go well beyond the ability of a cigar smoker puffing out some rudimentary O-rings. You may have seen the footage of vape clouds that seemingly have an intelligence of their own on social media. The “cool factor” of vaping tricks would probably seal the deal for any passersby. I know it certainly made me sit up and take notice. So, if you’re interested, talk to one of the knowledgeable staff at Medusa Juice.
Another intriguing aspect of vaping is the diversity of the community. Vaping isn’t a male-centric pursuit like so many other hobbies have been and continue to be. Instead, there’s an incredible amount of female participation. They’re not just here for show either, folks! These girls can jam! The elite women of vaping are kicking butt and taking names. Many of their tricks and performances easily rival that of their male counterparts.
While we’re speaking of vaporizers which specialize in the straight-to-lung method, there is one very obvious drawback. The need for increased heat energy to produce superior flavor and vapor production means that direct-lungers can expect a significantly shorter session life on one battery. To get around this problem, hobbyists and non-smokers will need to adequate batteries, and lots of them. Medusa Juice suggests getting a good charger and this can help you offset the issue by helping you always have a handy battery ready to use.
Although it’s not just about the batteries. These vaporizer components don’t operate in a vacuum. By that, I mean that functionality and reliability of one component can seriously impact other systems. So, it helps to be mindful and perform regular maintenance on your devices.
Outside Of The Box
Excessive modding of a vaporizer platform is akin to steroid usage. Under controlled dosages, anabolic steroids can be an accelerator of a athlete’s true potential. Of course, is a very delicate and risky dynamic. There is the real possibility that if you push too much, the user can experience addiction symptoms. More critically, organ functions may become compromised, which then cascades into other problems.
How that translates to vaping is that over-experimentation is a common problem with newcomers to vaping. The biggest misconception is that the linear trend between power and an end result will continue indefinitely. That is true up to a certain point. But beyond a critical mass threshold, one risks component failure, or worse. Just as an athlete does with steroid use.
You can find a similar dynamic within the outdoorsman and hunting community. Due to the expense of hunting rifle-caliber ammunition, many ardent hunters will “reload” their ammunition. This is a recycling process where the old shell casings are collected from expended ammo, and new primers and gun powders are installed.
Doing this can be great fun, and that certainly has an appeal. But go beyond the threshold, and bang! Excess pressure can rip apart a firearm like it was a tinfoil can, exploding shrapnel like a wild shotgun blast. While that may sound like a risk only crazed shooters will take, you’ll be shocked as to how many vapers take similarly unnecessary risks.
Why is another reason why you should deal with reputable and knowledgeable vape shops such as Medusa Juice. They can help guide you, and their equipment will be legitimate and safe. Fortunately, catastrophic failures are rare. On the other hand, technical failures are very common, particularly for newcomers to the community. Using the direct-to-lung methodology requires power, but a more accurate description would be “balanced power.” Because output increases both the flavor and vapor production, but only up to a point. Going beyond recommended levels, high output can permanently damage one or more components in the vaporizer. If you vape with an internally integrated battery, you may be on the hook for another e-device. So when it comes to hobbyist vaping, the user can be his or her own worst enemy. Isn’t that true of life in general?
If you can avoid temptation and stay within the written guidelines, you can have the best experiences out there and that’s what Medusa Juice wants for you. So, hey, be careful out there, but have fun!
