Airflow can make or break your vape clouds. Not enough air coming in could lead to the mod overheating, and if their is too much air it will affect the size of your vape clouds. It is important to find a happy median to where you can blow large clouds, without putting yourself in danger.
Vape juice is critical when trying to be the world’s best cloud chaser. For anyone new to vaping they should use a juice with a blend of both propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). This combination helps combat that harsh throat feeling and make your hits much smoother. However a cloud chaser needs a VG heavy E-juice because it creates thicker, and denser vape clouds.
Picking the right mod is important to support low resistant coil builds which are ideal for cloud chasing. If your mod is not built properly it can overheat, and possibly explode or catch fire. Most cloud chasers use mechanical mods because they have excellent airflow and allow for the biggest clouds. Mechanical mods require extensive knowledge and are not for beginners.
Not only is your equipment important to cloud chasing but so is your technique. It is obvious that whoever has the most lung capacity will blow the biggest clouds. So if you can only take baby hits this sport is not for you. It is also important to exhale your clouds slowly so they appear bigger and disperse slower. Like a pitcher works on his mechanics, a cloud chaser must get their technique perfect in order to be the best. Do you think Tom Brady became the best quarterback ever because he didn’t practice. HELL NO? I heard he can also blow one sick vape cloud.
Wicking is how your e-juice is delivered to the heating coil. In an atomizer, there is an absorbent wick that helps e-liquid get down to the vaporizing coil. If you need a visual just picture an oil lamp. The wick in an oil lamp is used to absorb the liquid and then bring it to the fire. It’s the same concept when vaping. The better the wick the better the juice reaches your coil.
Cloud chasing boils down to how you build your device. You want low resistance of your coils, and the perfect amount of air flow. The better your mod is built the bigger clouds you will create.
