Ohm’s Law

It may seem weird to have to relive your high school science classes, when all you want to do is build the most amazing vape, but sometimes those classes can come in handy. If you want to continue vaping safely you need to understand the basics of a principle known as Ohm’s Law. If you don’t understand this basic principle your vaping experience won’t be a good one when things inevitably go wrong. While the type of vaping accessories you use can play a role, understanding the various limits associated with your mods will keep you safe.

What is Ohm’s Law?

Ohm’s law is a principle that determines the voltage, resistance, and current in any circuit. You should know by now that your vape is made up of a circuit that utilizes voltage, resistance, and current in order to function. If you have any vape mods, you’ll be able to individually adjust each aspect of the circuit for a better vaping experience.

The best part is that once you understand Ohm’s Law in relation to your vaping experience, you will be able to understand the wattage and power of your vape.

Understanding The Basics of Ohm’s Law

Ohm’s Law is thankfully one of the more simple and easier things to remember. It goes as follows

I = V/R

    • I = Current
      This is the amount of electricity that your device uses and it is always measured in amperes.
    • V = Voltage
      This is the potential difference in energy between two points on your vape’s circuit. Newer mods allow users to change the voltage on their vapes.
    • R= Resistance
      The resistance in the circuit will affect the overall power output of your vape. Resistance is always measured in Ohms.

The simple question can be changed depending on what it is you’d like to measure. There are two more equations which go as follows:

  • R = V/I
  • V = I/R

However, if you’re tech savvy you don’t need to do all of the mental math on your own. There is a handy online Ohm’s Law Calculator to help you discover the power and wattage of your vape.

Why is This Important?

You may be wondering exactly why you should care about Ohm’s Law, I mean all you want to do is vape right? Wrong! If you’re not careful when interchanging the variables of your vape, you could be in serious trouble. Remember, there is a certain wattage limit that each device can handle, if you exceed that limit the consequences can be dire. Think of exploding vapes and how you don’t want to be on the net because your vape exploded in your hand. You do want to be able to find the best way to not only create bigger clouds and have a stronger vape, but also ensure that you’re safe in the process. Another perk of understanding Ohm’s Law when vaping, is Sub Ohm Vaping.

Sub Ohm Vaping

If you’re an avid cloud chaser, you’ll always want large flavor intensive clouds of vapor. When you have a thorough understanding of Ohm’s Law, you’ll be able to put this into practice. You’ll hopefully get large flavor intensive vapor without risking your device or your safety in the process. Remember, you do need to take your specific mods into account. Using substandard mods, tanks and vape batteries will have an adverse effect on your health.
