The dry puff is a dreaded phenomenon when you use an advanced vaporizer. It is an occurrence all vapors look to steer clear of, and avoid at all costs. Want to know more about what dry puffs are and how to keep them at bay? Keep reading! You know that we always have your best interests in mind!
Dry puffs, also known as “dry hits” suck. They taste awful, can make you cough, and can also have the terrible side effect of leaving e-liquid in your mouth. Once you experience it, you’ll probably do all you can to prevent it from happening again!
Dry hits are the result of an atomizer heating up and not having liquid to vaporize. The wick dries out, and any liquid available gets charred and the flavor will be disgusting! Several contributing factors are the cause, so if you have found yourself among the many who’ve had to endure it, here are some of the reasons behind it.
Wattage too high. This causes the atty to heat up too hot too fast, which does not allow the liquid to fully saturate the wick. Turning the wattage or voltage down a bit can fix this in a jiffy.
Too much airflow. If you’re using a device that has airflow control, the issue may be that the vent is fully open, causing the air to move over the wick excessively. This causes an issue because when puffing, there will not be enough air to draw more e-liquid into the wick, causing it to dry out fast.
Old coils. Replacement coils are a hot ticket item for a reason! Seasoned vapers know you’ve got to swap the old ones out regularly, every 1-2 weeks on average. E-liquid causes build up within the coils, so they need regular changing for top performance.
No more liquid. This one is self-explanatory, but it happens quite often. We’ve all been there for whatever reason, and we know it can be easy to overlook this obvious factor. Luckily, it’s a quick fix, so fill up your e-liquid stat!
So that sums up the plague known as the dry puff. It’s a rite of passage, and once you know how to avoid it, you will!
