If you haven’t noticed, we have entered the coldest stage of the winter season. For those who vape outdoors, it can be a bit tedious to bundle up just to get in a few satisfying hits. Believe it or not, the winter season affects your vape sessions beyond your level of comfort. In fact, cold weather can alter everything from the thickness of your fog to how well your batteries function.
However, just because it is cold out doesn’t mean that you have to run to the vape shop and invest in a whole new setup. There are a few very easy tips that you can take in order to get the most out of your wintertime vaping sessions.
Tip #1: Switch Up the VG/PG Ratio of Your E-Liquid
E-Liquid is composed of lots of different molecules that come from its various ingredients. Many flavoring ingredients consist of molecules that freeze when exposed to cold air. However, because vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are compounds that are derived from alcohol, they’ll stop your juice from freezing into a solid mass.
However, because of those flavor molecules, your liquid will change in consistency. Cold weather makes juice thicker, meaning that your vapor will be thicker. For those all about those massive, fluffy clouds, this might be good news. However, if you’re more into that strong throat hit, you’re probably going to want to increase your PG level in order to compensate for the cold.
Tip #2. Don’t Leave Your Vaping Hardware Outdoors
If you’re the type of vaper who leaves their device and/or hardware pieces outdoors or even in the car, you’re gonna want to be a little more careful during the winter season. When your mod is left outside on a cold day, its technological components can freeze, meaning that your unit just won’t work as well. Cold weather can damage your display screen as well as the internal mechanisms that keep it running smoothly.
This applies to your vape batteries as well. Batteries should never get cold because this can cause them to greatly decrease in capacity. When the weather is cold, a battery’s electrons move more slowly, meaning that the battery must try harder to power your device. This drains your batteries quickly and can permanently lower their capacity level.
If you can, store your hardware in a warm place indoors. While it doesn’t need to kept somewhere hot, make sure that it’s a place far away from any particularly drafty areas.
Tip #3: Treat Yourself to Seasonal Flavors to Get into the Winter Spirit
One of the best things about wintertime vaping is being able to indulge in winter-inspired e-liquid flavors. During the wintertime, we tend to crave richer desserts that keep us feeling warm during the cold months. If you want to watch your weight, you can satisfy your cravings with indulgent Highbrow juices that are inspired by the desserts that are abundant during this time of year.
Don’t Be Left in the Vaping Cold
By following these tricks, those freezing temperatures don’t have to ruin your experience. You’ll be able to enjoy those smooth, flavorful hits no matter what’s going on with the weather.
