80W. No just kidding. That’s what I have my box mod set at, but like with so many other things, there’s no one answer to this question.
If you have a variable wattage mod, your watt sweet spot will depend on your hardware, your e-juice and your personal tastes.
There is a little bit of science involved in finding the perfect wattage, but you definitely don’t need to be an expert.
Finding your ideal wattage is more about trial and error. Read on, and we’ll help you find a wattage that works for you.
Variable wattage (VW) mods
Only some mods will let you control the wattage. Most versatile box mods let you set the watts. But almost all pod mods, most stick mods and mechanical mods will not.
What you are looking for is a regulated mod that has a chip to control different outputs.
Regulated mods allow you to change different settings. Most allow you to change the voltage (variable voltage or VV) and some will allow you to control the temperature (temperature control or TC), but the most common variable is wattage.
Wattage is essentially the output or power of a device. A mod set at 50W will vaporize more e-liquid than a mod at 30W, just as a 75W light bulb will be brighter than a 40W bulb.
Without going into too much detail on the science (if you are interested in that you can find a good discussion of Ohm’s law here), the basic thing you need to know is that when you are increasing the output, you are telling your mod to draw a higher voltage from the battery.
The only other way to control the output is to change the resistance of your set-up, but this can only be achieved by changing the atomizer.
With most box mods, you can buy a range of different coils with different resistances. When you attach a new atomizer to your mod, it may calculate the resistance for you, or it may be up to you to set the resistance. This will normally be printed on the coil or on the box.
If you are creating your own coils to use in a rebuildable atomizer, the resistance will depend on the material you are using for your coils and the number of turns that you put in the wire. More turns will mean a higher resistance.
