When a vapor experiences some form of issue, oftentimes they leave it to themselves to determine what is causing the technical difficulty. However, it is easy for vapers to think they are just imagining things when a device works perfectly one day, and the next, there is some form of issue. Nothing has changed, except maybe the weather. This leaves many to wonder if the weather really affects the vaping experience, or do devices spontaneously have some random issue?
Have you ever gotten everything ready and started your vaping session, just to get the feeling something is not right? Whether there is less vapor, the device is not pulling correctly, or some other type of concern appears. You know something is not quite right, but at the same time, you are just not sure if there is something really wrong, or if you are imagining it. In reality, you are having an issue. While it is not something you would typically consider when you are having difficulties with your device, the weather can play an important role in your overall vaping experience.
Higher temperatures cause two main issues. First, it can alter your substance. With oil concentrate and wax pen, it can alter the overall consistency of your substance. This can cause you to lose some of the terpenes in your concentrate, which in turn will lower the potency of your substance. For dry herb users, higher temperatures can affect multiple areas of the substance, including taste, smell, and potency.
Hot temperatures have a big impact on battery life. These higher temperatures cause your device to work harder to do the same thing. Therefore, heavy vapers, or if you are going to be out all day, should make sure to have some spare batteries on hand. Keep them in a plastic, case you can keep secure, and try to store them in a regulated temperature as much as possible.
Like warmer weather, extremely cold conditions also have a negative impact on your device. In fact, it can even make your device inoperable. For example, if you are out in cold temperatures and you suddenly take it back inside to nice and warm surroundings, you can not only risk condensation building up on the outside of your device but the inside as well. If you decide to use your device with the moisture inside, it can affect the device’s circuits inside. This is especially true if you have your device on during the sudden environmental change.
Another issue commonly related to extreme cold is reduced battery capacity. As a general rule of thumb, you should consider your battery capacity at about 70 percent during colder months. Due to this, you should always try to keep your battery in a warmer environment as much as you can. If you do need to take them with you in the cold, try to store them in something insulated.
You should also be more aware of your surroundings during cold weather. Cold weather not only allows you the ability to take larger hits without the additional harshness added to your throat but when you exhale, your vapor clouds will be even thicker than usual. Therefore, you need to be aware of your surroundings if you are vaping around other people or you are out in public.
Humidity has a significant impact on your overall vaping experience. It can affect your vape in a variety of ways. One of the most common issues for vaping in humidity lies in the seal of your tank. These seals are typically made from rubber (or a similar type of material), and specific conditions can cause these seals to respond differently. For example, when the external conditions have high humidity and heat, it can cause the seal to lose its flexibility. Due to the loss of flexibility, the seal will fail to fit properly, and thus a loss in pressure to your device.
While many vapers tend to consider only the ways humidity could affect their device. It is important to know the combination of heat and humidity can also affect your concentrate. Increases in temperature and humidity can decrease the thickness of your concentrate (for oil and wax concentrates) and therefore, your overall quality and consistency of your vapor. In dry herbs, this increase can result in mold forming in your substance.
Experienced vapers do not quit vaping just because of the weather. Instead, they make the adjustments needed to ensure they still have a great vaping experience. Thankfully, this can easily be completed, by following these simple vaping tips to improve their experience against the weather.
Warm weather may make you think of outdoor fun and relaxation. However, as a vaper, there are a few adjustments you should consider making to ensure you still have a safe and satisfying vaping experience. These tips and precautions should include (but are not limited to):
Depending upon where you live, winter weather can be extremely cold. In order to avoid the pitfalls of vaping in cold weather, you need to take specific precautions and preparations. Cold weather can be the enemy, but you can easily have a great vaping session by using these cold-weather tips.
Humidity may be one of the last options you would think of to affect your overall vaping experience. However, heat and humidity not only will alter the abilities of your device, but also the very substance you are vaping. Therefore, it is essential to make sure you understand what to expect and how to prevent it. To help have a successful vaping session, remember these helpful tips.
