What are Variable Voltage Electronic Cigarettes (VV)?
Almost all electronic cigarette batteries are rated at 3.7 volts. However, you will find that your vaping experience changes when you use different e-liquids and atomizing devices.
Some combinations may produce ‘rich’ flavor and ‘full-bodied throat hit’, while others may leave you wishing you could “crank it up a bit” either in the vapor production, taste or throat hit.
Variable voltage electronic cigarettes allow you to do exactly that, making it possible to change the voltage of your device to achieve the vapor production, flavor and throat hit you crave that you may not be able to achieve from your current device.
Variable Voltage Vaporizers are electronic cigarette power control devices that allow the user to connect a range of atomizing devices and control the voltage that is applied to the atomizer. Every fluid will have its own ‘sweet spot’ i.e. the perfect optimal temperature that it should be vaped at. A variable voltage allows you find and enjoy every ‘sweet spot’ for every flavor and fluid.
How Do Variable-Voltage Electronic Cigarettes Work?
Variable-voltage electronic cigarettes use 3.7-volt batteries, just like standard electronic cigarettes. The difference is in the fact that a variable-voltage e-cigarette includes a booster circuit that stores and regulates power from the battery, delivering it to the atomizer or cartomizer at the voltage you select.
Many variable-voltage e-cigarettes also include microprocessors for safety and precise control over vapor production. These advanced internal electronics often make variable-voltage e-cigarettes more expensive than standard e-cigarettes.
Why Should I Buy a Variable-Voltage Electronic Cigarette?
If you’re a current electronic cigarette user and you occasionally feel tempted to return to smoking because your current e-cigarette doesn’t deliver quite the vapor and flavor you want, you are the ideal candidate for variable-voltage vaping.
However, increased performance isn’t the only reason to buy a variable-voltage device.
Because variable-voltage devices hold much larger batteries than standard e-cigarettes, they can also help you avoid the untimely battery deaths that happen all too often with smaller devices.
If your electronic cigarette is the same size and shape as a real cigarette, it has a battery capacity of about 90 mAh. You can use it for around an hour before the battery dies.
Variable-voltage electronic cigarettes are large enough to hold batteries with capacities of 1600 mAh and higher; for many people, that’s enough for a full day of vaping or more.
The second item to consider is the fact that variable-voltage devices are some of the safest electronic cigarettes available.
The intelligent microprocessors in variable-voltage devices prevent you from using them in unsafe ways. With a well-designed device, you can’t insert the battery in reverse, discharge the battery to an unsafe level, hold the activation button long enough to cause overheating or operate at a voltage too high for the connected atomizer or cartomizer.
In all of these conditions, the device displays an error code, adjusts the voltage level to compensate or simply shuts off. In addition, variable-voltage electronic cigarettes use high-quality batteries with cells produced by reputable companies such as Sanyo and Sony – batteries that won’t overheat or fail, even during your heaviest vaping sessions.
