What is the benefit of higher wattage?

Yeah, Ive seen these reviewed - they seem to tick all the boxes. If I was to get an RDA, I think this one would be it.
Damondo, what wattage are you at??

So, if ive got it right… higher wattage = more flavor, more cloud (by default) & greater versatility with your builds.
Have I missed anything??
…I still dont understand why yould vape at over 100 watts - seems like over-kill to me… but then, I’m not in it for the cloud.

When folks are using huge ass wire (20 to 24 gauge) or building mondo Clapton coils in their RDA, it takes a lot of power/wattage to boot up those coils.

Like 80 - 90% of us, I was never in it for the clouds either…until I was.
It’s easy to get hooked because it tests your creativity… If my hands weren’t so unsteady and stiff, I’d probably be making the big builds but alas, I have to live vicariously through these maniac builders here at ELR. :cloud:

& that’ll probably happen to me too…I LOVE the creativity involved in all of this!

Oh well, there u go!.. a hundred watts!.. & to think I never thought it necessary. Ha! Better put ohms law on the shoppin list me thinks!

And to that I say…Harrumph!

There should be a coil named after you!

There are a lot of ohms law app’s out there for your smart phone. They make it easy.

Thanks for the tip, @chuck6. Just downloaded one - “Mr Combi” …it looked like the simplest, but I could be wrong. Is there another you’d recommend?

I don’t see any thinking that you may in joy. I have tryed 40-50 watts and all I have got out of it it dence vape ,hot lungs, and juice gone.Other than dence vape. I would stay where your are, unless you just what to show off to your friends, thats all ways fun.

Some vapers love a warm dense vape. It’s all about preference. Sometime I go much higher. It all depends on the juice, the build, the wire. If you’re vaping on some thin Kanthal it would be unpleasant. But that’s prime range for SS and Ti.

thank Pro_vapes. I will try SS or TI wire. 24 &26 gage kanthal is all I have tryed so far. Is this wire in the same gage.? .05 is about right at 25-35 watt. vape, battery life.

SS reads a bit lower than Kanthal and Ti much lower than both.

All I have seen are easy. The most important thing is to be safe.
