ceramic cartridge Oil Vape Tips
- Make sure you are using the correct oil cartridge for your battery. Too much power flowing into a cartridge can burn out the heating element. This can happen immediately but, more often than not, will over time. If you burn out a fresh pre-filled cartridge long before it is done, it will be very frustrating as it is near impossible to drain the oil from the cartridge. Even if you could get it out, it would be difficult to consume as you can’t use it with your vape pen.
- Use a box mod for maximum temperature control and long lasting quality. Many box mods will also allow you to vaporize concentrates like wax in addition to oils.
- The SteamCloud Mini is a great box mod vape option for those with pre-filled and sealed skinny 510 oil cartridges
- If your vapor is too harsh and you don’t have variable voltage settings, just let your oil vape cool down for a minute and then continue vaping. Many oil vapes will just keep heating up, so if you’re using it for an extended time, it can get quite hot and start to burn the oil.
Obviously, the main difference between oil vapes and wax pens is based on what product you will be consuming. Wax vapes are designed to vaporize wax, whereas oil vapes are designed to vaporize oil. While some vaporizers can do both, most vaporizers focus on vaporizing one particular substance well. If you have an affinity toward either wax or oil, you should choose the correct type of vaporizer for the substance you prefer.
As wax is closer to a solid concentrate, it requires a bit higher temperature to vaporize. In general, you want to vaporize oil between 340°F and 445°F and wax between 420°F and 550°F. A lower temperature results in smooth, tasty vapor but you may not be ingesting 100% of the compounds in your wax or oil. A higher temperature provides a thick, heavy vapor that ensures you vaporize all the compounds in your wax or oil. However, a high temperature may start burning your wax or oil, resulting in a harsher smoke-like vapor. This can be especially hard on those new to vaporizing.
