One of the main reasons that people who vape choose the more basic options of vaping is due to their simplicity. Cig-a-Likes, POD Systems, and basic Pen-style devices may make things easier for vapers, but what they gain in ease they lose in vapor and flavor. This is one of the main reasons more experiences vapers upgrade to more advanced mods, but the more advanced you get, the more cautious you need to be from a safety perspective.
The stories that are shared across the Internet tend to boil down to one major factor, inexperienced vapers not understanding their equipment. With the power being as adjustable as it in is some rigs, a basic understanding of Ohm’s Law should be a must for everyone. To make sure Madvapes customers and clients always stick on the side of safety, we wanted to provide a basic breakdown of Ohm’s Law as a tool to make sure you’re using our products correctly.
“Ohm’s law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the voltage across the two points. Introducing the constant of proportionality, the resistance, one arrives at the usual mathematical equation that describes this relationship:
where I is the current through the conductor in units of amperes, V is the voltage measured across the conductor in units of volts, and R is the resistance of the conductor in units of ohms. More specifically, Ohm’s law states that the R in this relation is constant, independent of the current. Ohm’s law is an empirical relation which accurately describes the conductivity of the vast majority of electrically conductive materials over many orders of magnitude of current. However some materials do not obey Ohm’s law, these are called non-ohmic.”
The battery that your Mod uses will provide a certain amount of amps, the battery’s ability to discharge stored energy (current). Make sure you check the resistance of your coil and calculate the amps that it will pull from the battery based on the watts you set your Mod to. A miscalculation can lead to the battery being pushed beyond its limits, causing the battery to possibly explode and seriously injure you in the process. Also possible, though not as dangerous, is if you’re not getting enough power from the battery, you won’t create enough heat to provide any vape.
