When people take their vaping really seriously, many start to get into cloud chasing. It has been dismissed by some people as showing off, and it’s also considered rude to constantly blow massive clouds of vapour in public, but that doesn’t stop some e-liquid vapers from enjoying the practice and even making it into something of a competitive sport. There are even several global contests offering significant prizes for the best cloud chasers.
All of this comes down to the skills of those people when setting up their tools, including the atomisers that produce the clouds and the e-liquids that go into them. Here is a basic summary of what aspiring cloud chasers should be considering if they want to get into it.
Powered mods will need a suitable battery to give the best results, which means it needs to provide the correct level of power, and above all be safe.
A major factor is the physical design of your mod and choice of coil, which will vary the resistance. This is definitely going to have an impact on the sort of vapour clouds you produce.
Plan out the ratio of VG in your e-liquid, as increasing this will result in thicker clouds in general, which may be more impressive.
Some of the results will depend on the actual person and not just what you’re using to vape. If you have a bigger lung capacity it will help, but anyone can practice inhaling and exhaling to maximise the size of their vapour clouds.
It’s important to remember that vaping is only harmless if you have some knowledge about what you’re doing and take a bit of care. If you are inexperienced and start trying to use some of the equipment favoured by competitive cloud chasers, you could risk doing yourself some harm. Make sure you start off with good quality devices and don’t make customisations until you are confident with the technical and safety aspects of vaping and cloud chasing.
