    Default The Rattlesnake Effect- Why the Cheapo VV [Exception Itaste MVP] Don't Vape the Same as a Provari or DNA20D

    If you check out any of the PBusardo videos and fast forward to the section where he tests the voltage output. All of the low end vv devices, the Vamo, the SVD, Zmax etc are using PWM or Pulse Width Modulation without filters.PBusardo says that you can tell because when you vape on these devices on certain atomizers they sound like a rattlesnake.

    The Provari, The Itaste MVP, the DNA20D Mods all have filters or are using different technology and they are outputting a straight voltage amount.

    You may ask what is the difference. Well the PWM has a fluctuation in voltage that is very large and very quick, some say that you can't detect it. Some even like it better. Some say it make the atty sound like a rattlesnake and is harsher.

    For example on a Vamo if you set the voltage to 4V the voltage will fluctuate between around 7v and 3v the duty cycle will be short and the ending mean is the 4v that you've set.

    A Picture is worth a thousand words, I captured the top two pictures from PBusardos You Tube Review of the Vamo and the bottom from his Youtube Video of the MVP.

    What about the itaste vv 3? It should be the same as a MVP circuitry I hope

    I checked the Pbusardo review and it says the signal is flat. So yes it's not using PWM

    It's a winner!

    By the way the Ego Twist according to Busardo doesn't give a flat reading above it's lowest setting and he had to use a device that averages the waves.

    So no you aren't going to get a Provari - MVP -Dna20D Vape off of an Ego.

    I love that Zmax rattlesnake vape. Vaping without it just isn't as good.

    The stability of the Power wave may effect the quality of the vape.

    With the PWM fluctuating the voltage goes very high then low. This effects how the coils are heated. Instead of a constant heating of the coil you have fluctuations in the heating. [Debatably] and this will effect how the juice is vaporized and possibly the quality and taste of the vape.

    Uh, the rattlesnake effect (for those that never experienced it) is a pulse in vapor production from these PWM APVs. It is sensed by hearing alone. The rattlesnake effect is loudest when is the power button is pressed without anything contacting the drip tip.

    The rattlesnake sound is related to the 33hz chips used in the APVs, but is nowhere close to being an audible 33hz tone. The sound actually seems to cycle a few times per second. The rattlesnake has no effect on vapor quality that I can detect.

    Nobody is going to see a difference in a coil glowing with DC power pulsed 33 times per second compared to a coil powered by pure DC. The same goes with vapor produced by the coil.

    Unless you just don't like the sound, the rattlesnake effect is a non-issue.
