What Vape Makes the Most Smoke?

1 CommentTuesday, 19 April 2016  |  Admin

Before answering this question, it's best to get a little pedantic. As the saying goes, there's no smoke without fire. Vaping, by definition, doesn't actually produce any smoke. The clouds produced are simply vapour, caused by heating up your e-liquids. Smoke is created when you burn something and destroy it, whereas vaping simply heats the liquid until it transforms into vapour. Creating the biggest vapour clouds possible is becoming a popular pastime within vaping circles, and 'cloud chasers' even compete now to see who is the best.

If you're looking for a vape 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 (vegetable glycerin) compared to PG (propylene glycol) in your e-liquid. 


Many of the flavours you see online and in vape shops will have a high percentage of PG (propylene glycol), which is thinner than VG, holds flavour better and is kinder to your equipment. VG is thicker, has a slightly sweet taste and can sometimes clog up the coils within your vape. Yet if it's big clouds you're looking for, then VG is definitely the way to go! Several brands make 100% VG juices, and you can choose a flavoured one if the pure taste of VG is too much.

Cloud Chasing

Ohm My God!

The key to blowing huge clouds extends not just to your choice of liquid, but to the rest of your set up too. If you really want the biggest clouds, then you're going to have to delve into the world of sub-ohm vaping. Sub-ohm vaping means to vape with an atomiser that has a coil with a low resistance (less than 1 ohm). 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 therefore spread over a much larger area, causing more juice to be vaporised and larger clouds to be produced!

You can either build your own atomiser for this purpose, or buy one ready made. One word of caution, though - sub-ohm vaping is not recommended for beginners, and should only be undertaken by experienced vapers with a knowledge of ohm's law. 

The Power Of Vape

The final piece to the cloud chasing puzzle is a high-powered vaping device, allowing you to convert that power into sweet, sweet clouds. Technology is moving forward all the time, and now vapers are moving to 30, 50 or even 100 watt machines. 


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. This charge is lead by models such as the Aspire Atlantis and the Kanger Subtank
