Although I currently do not have anything for the Puck that can do variable wattage, I can do variable voltage with the gripper board. Although variable voltage is a step in the right direction, it’s just not the same. Variable voltage helps you to control your voltage better and gives you more voltage to work with. I will however, incorporate vw into the Puck eCig Mod as soon as I can get a board that works properly.
But, why would you want VW for your eCig? The main important thing is, it’s the best way to get a consistent vape no matter what atomizer/tank system you decide to use. It requires less fiddling and adjusting.
A lot of folks out there say variable wattage doesn’t matter. I’ve been doing this a long time and I say it does if you can possibly do it. It is the easiest way to get a consistent vape… period. Being able to get a consistent vape every time is what it’s all about. I hate fiddling around with things where they work one time and then oops, no more juice or dry hits or other issue. I want consistency. The Puck gives you consistency but you can take it to another level.
“What is Variable Wattage?”, you may ask. VW if done right is smart. You set what wattage level you want to vape at. If you put an atomizer on your ecig that is 2.6 ohms, your vw circuit will adjust your voltage automatically to get your desired watts. If you put on a different atomizer that is say, 2.1 ohms, the voltage will be adjusted automatically to match your atty to get your wattage. Sound complicated? It’s not.
I prefer wattage around 7 watts to get the best vapor and flavor. No matter what the ohms of your atty is, the variable wattage circuit will automatically adjust the voltage to create 7 watts. Really simple. No fiddling with voltage settings.
Some variable voltage devices also will adjust the wattage while you are vaping since the resistance of your atty changes when heating up. I personally think this is a bit overkill but it does make for an accurate vape. That would not discourage me from using just a straight VW device. They work great even if they are basic.
You will see variable wattage devices listed as VW devices as opposed to VV devices (variable voltage). Why do I need VW? You don’t have to have it but if you want to vape without concern consistently, then VW is for you.
This feature can only be found on eCigs that have a smart circuit in them with a microprocessor. These usually cost a bit more than your average eCig mod and more expensive than your variable voltage mods. But, if you have the cash to get you one, you will find it a very nice addition to your existing ecig batteries and mods. Worry free vaping.
As soon as I can find a decent microprocessor board for a great price, I definitely will incorporate VW into the Puck and post a tutorial for you all just as I did with the variable voltage mod, the Puck “MVP’ you can view here on this site.
Here is a list of a couple of variable wattage devices you can check out.
