How Can I Vape Bigger Clouds?

Friday, 29 April 2016  |  Admin

Ah, so you want to know how to vape bigger clouds? This is a closely guarded secret, handed down through the generations to just a select group of chosen individuals. Their name? The cloud chasers.

Actually, creating bigger vapour clouds, or 'cloud chasing', isn't that complicated, in theory at least. If you're looking for a combination that will create large amounts of vapour, then you'll need three main things; a lot of power, a low resistance, and a high proportion of VG compared to PG in your e-liquid. You'll also need some DIY skills if you want to make it to the top.

VG Percentage

The first thing you need for bigger vapour clouds is a high percentage of VG, or vegetable glycerin. (If you want to know all about VG then check out our blogs on it). VG is thicker than PG and, for whatever reason, it just makes bigger clouds when vaped with. With VG, the higher the percentage the better, so the closer you can get to 100% VG the bigger your clouds will be.

Some people even manage to vape with pure VG, but as you up the content, it comes with some side effects. Many vaporisers (such as pen-shaped devices) haven't been constructed to cope with a particularly high VG percentage, so if your ratio is above around 70/30 VG/PG they may not even work. To be able to vape with such high levels of VG you need some serious equipment, which is why experienced cloud chasers often rely on modified vaporisers.

My Ohm My

The key to blowing huge clouds is not just based on your choice of liquid, but to the rest of your set up too. If you really want people to marvel at your vaping cumulus, then you're going to have to get into the world of sub-ohm vaping. This entails vaping with a coil with a low resistance (less than 1 ohm) and a high power. The difference with these low-resistance attachments is that more of the power can then be used to heat up your e-juice. A larger amount of heat is spread over a much larger area, causing more juice to be vaporised and voilà! Bigger clouds, lucrative endorsement deals and crowds of screaming fans (well, the first one at least).

You can either build your own atomiser for this purpose, or buy one ready made. One word of caution, though - building your own sub-ohm vaporisers is not recommended for beginners because of the highly-powered devices and potential battery issues, and should only be undertaken by experienced vapers who aren't likely to blow themsleves up.


Rapid development has lead to sub-ohming clearomisers now being available straight out of the box, allowing beginners to get a taste of advanced vaping without the risk. This charge is lead by models such as the Aspire Atlantis and the Kanger Subtank
