The resistance is the heart of your e-cigarette. Connected to the battery and present in the clearomiser, a correct adjustment of this element is essential to the pleasure of the vape. To ensure the proper functioning of your e-cigarette, you must therefore regularly change your resistance and ensure that you correctly adjust the power of your device. The power will then play on your excellent vaporization while providing a certain pleasure to the user.

Some units of measurement to know

The power of the resistance of an electronic cigarette is expressed in Watts and the value of the resistance in Ohms (Ω). The Ohm is thus the unit of measurement of electrical resistance. Each resistance in your clearomiser however has a different power which generally varies between 0.1 and 2.5 Ohm.

Resistance malfunction, how to use it correctly?

Most beginner vapers tend to complain about their resistance: malfunction, burnt taste, etc. Most of the time, these operating problems are due to improper use of the resistance and value problems. You should know that the power of the resistance must depend on the assigned box. Indeed, using your e-cigarette with a resistance of 1.3 ohms for example, while the box can reach 40 watts, can seriously damage your equipment and be fatal for this resistance ., not created to support this power. The resistance then becomes unusable and must be changed immediately after being installed. When you know the price that a resistor costs, you don’t want to put it in the trash so quickly!

First of all, be aware that a value below 1.0 ohm, also called sub-ohm, heats up much more than a value above 1.0 ohm. The difference in values ​​has consequences on the vapour level of your e-cigarette. Subohm coils provide better vaporization while allowing the user to experience a correct flavour.

How to know the value of its resistance?

To know the value of its resistance, two means are possible. First, you can start by looking at your resistance itself. If it is already placed inside your electronic cigarette, be sure to remove it gently, so as not to damage any element. The resistor value should generally be written and indicated in Ohms directly on the resistor.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. You can then watch on the display of the box of your e-cigarette. Most boxes have a screen displaying all the necessary information for the proper functioning of each electronic cigarette. You will find there the power used, the battery level, as well as the value of the resistance of your e-cigarette.

How to adjust the power of your electric cigarette?

Once you know the value of your resistor, you can then adjust the Watts. However, Watts cannot be set precisely. A range of use is therefore used.

The higher the resistor has a value in Ohms, the lower the rates use range The power, therefore, increases when the resistance decreases. You should then test the values ​​within this power range, to find the best possible feeling for you. This power is personalized and therefore depends on each person.

You can choose a potency outside this range, but risk damaging your cigarette. Power below the range will result in a low responsive resistor. You will then not be able to vape effectively and risk causing e-liquid leaks with gurgling and projections in your mouth. On the contrary, too much power could damage your equipment and wear out your resistance more quickly. So be sure to follow the instructions for use.

Here are some values ​​that could help you choose the right power for your resistors:

  • Resistance: + 1.5 Ohm —> – 10 Watts 
  • Resistance: from 1 to 1.5 Ohm —> between 9 and 15 Watts 
  • Resistance: from 0.5 to 1 Ohm —> between 20 and 35 Watts 
  • Resistance: from 0.3 to 0.5 Ohm —> between 20 and 60 watts 
  • Resistance: from 0.15 to 0.3 ohm —> between 20 and 100 Watts
