My Personal Technique to Vaping No More Metal taste Vaping Guide
Now before you take another metal tasting drag please allow me to share with you my technique of vaping. This will help you to experience a more enhance vaping experience. When I draw I dont inhale a dry wick or i will get a metal disgusting taste. When I draw/vape I don’t inhale to mouth then lung. As I draw slowly I inhale straight to lungs. I inhale slowly a good 5-6 seconds to feel the hot warm moist vape. When I do that BOY do I taste that juice and all the notes it has and what a wonderful smoke. It’s heaven, if I draw fast to lungs I deny myself that wonderful richness experience.
So try to inhale slowly for 5-6 seconds while leaving power button pressed. Try this at a lower voltage setting. This will help to get the technique down and prevent you from burning the coil and drying wick. I created a guide Triple wick that will work great with this vaping technique. This will ensure wick is properly moist and not over burn.(Triple wick coil)
Keep in mind of the following ohms and volts.
Vaping at 1.0-1.5ohms I generally stay between 3.0v-3.7v anything higher sometimes I may get E1 errors (ProVari V2) and the taste changes and not the same. Sometimes I do get it to go 4.2v it all depends. Vaping 1.5-2.0ohms 3.5v-4.2v anything higher sometimes I may get E1 errors (ProVari V2) and the taste changes and not the same. Sometimes I do get it to go 4.5v it all depends. Vaping 2.0-3.0ohms 4.2v-6v. To start at lower settings then raise it up 1v-2v increments. I like to get my general sweet spot (hot wet moist air on tongue)once there I leave the volts alone and chain vape slowly away. As you will experience technique is key and as you improve it the closer you will be in vaping paradise.
Now If you cough when trying this exercise its normal your lungs are not used to inhaling straight because this is humidified moist liquid going to your lungs not dry air like analog cigarettes. You may need to lower the nic dosage or the voltage. If you don’t find the heat strong enough raise volts by 1-2 increments. When you inhale for 5-6 seconds make sure the hot moist air is hitting your tongue. This will help you to determine if the hot air is dry or moist. The real deal is to draw/inhale real slow to feel the hot, hot moist air hitting the tongue. Remember you are inhaling evaporated air not dry air. Smoking cigs is dry hot air and vaping is inhaling humidified juice. They both deliver nicotine the techniques used may be similar but its very different to execute the same result. As you keep doing you’re your coughing will disappear usually takes a few days. If it’s the nic dosage then you will need to lower the nic mg.
You may get frustrated but don't worry you'll get it just posses yourself with some patience. Give yourself permission not to give up and in return you will have yourself a WORLD CLASS treasure that many of us in the GG Family admires and dreams to have. Give it some time so that you can experience what many of us have so richly experienced. It’s a new technique for you and when mastered you will enjoy all the notes of flavors and get such enrichment in vaping that you never thought possible.
Oh before I forget when you build the coil and wick make sure after you screw it to tank and oring is on tight. Before adding the big long mouth piece make sure you wet the wick with juice. Ensure you wet the two wick channels as well before screwing the mouthpiece tube on. When you take your first pull no need to open the flow control since you pre wet the wick. Remember 3.8v and inhale straight to lungs slowly I mean very very very slowly. Leave power press for atleast 5-6 seconds as you inhale at the same time slowly. Then release and open half turn flow control and wait for 3-5 seconds then take another slow slow slow slow inhale for 5 seconds. Now rinse and repeat if you feel the hot air not moist on your tongue then open flow control another half turn. Once your done chain vaping slowly close flow control when ready to vape again vape without opening flow control till you get that light hot dry air on your tongue. Then open flow control half turn and vape away repeating previous steps.
This guide will take some trial and error to perfect for some folks. People that used to smoke cigars will breeze right through since its very similar when smoking a analog cigar with the exception of inhaling to lungs. Cigars was always dragged slowly and held in mouth for flavor taste then exhaled. My rituals were to play some jazz and pour myself a nice glass of brandy and puff away. In vaping I can have better experience since I can inhale it real slow to taste all the flavors of the tobacco going in and then exhaling slowly to get another tasting experience. It’s a rewarding experience when done right.
