How to Use Temperature Control Properly?

Posted by phoebe guo on

Temperature control (TC)is a special output mode of electronic cigarette. In addition to the strong temptation. The vapers also have different opinions on it.

Some people think that temperature control is useless. While others like the taste of temperature control.

For the beginner, the host purchased a temperature control function, do not experience the heart will always feel itchy, as if to buy a new cell phone, if incomplete function are used once, the experience is not complete.

what do you need?

To experience temperature control, you need to prepare a temperature-controlled atomizer and a host that supports temperature control.

If using a sub ohm tank with a temperature-controlled atomization core,  you can straight forward and skip this step.

If you are using RBA, then you need to prepare the corresponding temperature control heating wire.

Commonly there are three kinds: nickel 200, titanium, 316, which one should be selected?

If chosing by the taste,the taste of the nickel wire is lighter, the  titanium wire and 316 will have more layering and details, but the 316 will have a faint “metal” taste.


Next is  how to choose the "wire diameter"?

Different materials ,different diameters. we can choose it according to the type of atomizer, such as the one with single coil atomizer, which is suitable for the diameter between 0.2-0.32;

If with big smog atomizer, 0.32-0.4 wire diameter can be used;If double coils, it is recommended to use 0.2-0.25 diameter, because the pure nickel material has very low resistance, with double coils is even lower.In order to avoid the resistance is too low so that the host can not support, you need to choose the finer one  to increase the resistance.

For titanium and 316 materials, you can select according to the diameter of the pressure regulating heating wire. For example,the pressure regulating heating wire is 0.4 Canter A1, then you can select 0.4 titanium or 316 heating wire for the temperature control.

How to make the temperature control coil?

1, Temperature control coil and voltage regulator coil is different,  In order to avoid partial short circuit,The nickel and titanium can only be used in the "loose winding" way rather than the "dense winding",  

2,316 is rather special, which can be used in both tightly winding and loosely winding, both for pressure regulating and temperature control.

3, The number of laps is up to the structure of the atomizer used. As much as possible, It will increase the heating area.

4. While winding, you can tightly wind at first and then stretch on the wire rod to adjust the uniformity.

5, The rest of the steps are similar with that for the pressure regulating heating wire: install it and put cotton inside. However, it should be noted that the coils of nickel and titanium should not be dry burning, but they should be directly penetrated into the cotton and adjusted to a proper distance.

How to set the host ?

1, Choose the right mode

Connect to the host and select the appropriate temperature control material mode based on the temperature control material you are using.

This is very simple. If you are using nickel, then enter the host, switch the output mode to temperature control "TC", then find "NI" in the material and set it as the current material.Similarly, titanium and 316 are also set to the corresponding "TI" and "316" (SS).

When setting, do not press the ignition key to heat the atomizer, because once the temperature control coil is heated up, the resistance value changes, and the host will show the wrong resistance value as the initial resistance, which will affect the accuracy of the temperature control , even if some hosts can manually detect resistance.

If want to set it again, you will have to wait more than ten minutes till the coil temperature down to room temperature.

Therefore, I suggest you can set the host first( the material, temperature, output)and then connect the atomizer, so that the detected resistance is relatively accurate


2,The temperature setting

The next step is to set the output temperature which is usually between 200°C and 300°C. You can try this area and find the most comfortable temperature.

The most commonly used is 220°C and 240°C. These two temperature can be used for most temperature-controlled atomizers. Sometimes some  big-cloud atomizers require 260 or 280°C.

With regard to the issue of temperature "units,"  Is it the Celsius or the Fahrenheit?

Many people have heard that theoretically "degrees Fahrenheit" is more delicate than "degrees Centigrade" because the water's freezing point to boiling point is marked with degrees 0 to 100, which is divided into 100 units.The Fahrenheit is 32-212 which is divided into 180 equal parts.

There is a joke about Celsius and Fahrenheit. Although it is not funny at all, it will be popular on Twitter: When using Fahrenheit, 0 Celsius makes you feel very cold, and at 100 Celsius you feel hot; When using degrees Celsius, 0 degrees you feel cold, 100 degrees you are already died.

Fahrenheit is not only more precise, but also more sensitive to human perception of temperature sensitivity. Celsius has a large number of users worldwide. In fact, currently only three countries are broadcasting weather in degrees Fahrenheit: the United States, Myanmar, and Liberia. But to ask me which one we should use, there will be more reasons to tell you that Fahrenheit is more scientific.

But the above is only reflected in some scientific research and precision technology. The use of E-cig is actually part of life, so this problem is solved very well.Just chose the one you prefer to. There was no need to artificially trouble yourself, right?

3, Output power setting

Electronic cigarette “temperature control” is actually a “power output”mode. In simple terms, it is the chip that converts the temperature of the coil by detecting the resistance of the coil.

For example, a nickel coil has a resistance of 1Ω at room temperature of 25°C and 1.5Ω at 200°C. If you set the temperature control to 200°C, the host chip will detects the resistance of the coil,If less than 1.5Ω, the coil will be powered, if up to 1.5Ω, the power supply will be stopped or reduced. By repeating this process, the resistance value is always maintained at about 1.5Ω, which is the corresponding “200°C”.Therefore, the "temperature control" is fundamentally also a kind of "inverter-type power output."

The current temperature -controlled electronic cigarette host usually has two kinds of power output settings, one is that the user can set the temperature, but the chip uses an automatic power output which can not be setted.The other is that the user can set both the output temperature and the maximum output power.

How to set it up?

According to the atomizer used and its output power under the pressure regulator. If mouth-sucking atomizer, the power can be set lower.If temperature-controlled RDA or a big-cloud sub ohm tank, it is necessary to increase the power so that the coil can be heated up quickly. For example, 80W and 100W are normally used, and the power output under temperature control can also be set to 80 or 100W.

There are also some temperature-controlled hosts with a "dry-burning protection" feature to avoid scorching the atomizing core. If your mainframe prompts for dry burning, check that there is oil remaining in the atomization chamber and the atomizing core is sufficiently humid, then consider reducing the output power under temperature control.

What is Joule?

In the temperature control mode, the output unitof some hosts is not W but "joule", how to set it?Joule is unit of work and energy, and watt is unit of power. The two are not the same physical quantity, so there is no conversion relationship between them.The connection between power and joule is:

1 degree equals 1 kW * hour

1 watt is equal to 1 Joules per second

1 degree is equal to 1000 joules per second * hours (3600 seconds)

1 degree is equal to 3600000 joules

So everyone should be clear? In the electronic cigarette output, it can be understood as Joule = power.

In other words, if the usual setting is 80W, then the same setting is 80 joules under temperature control.

Although e-cigarettes are relatively simple, you’d better read the manual at first. If you have a temperature-controlled E-cig, do remember to follow the operating setup. or your temperature control atomizer does not work properly after setting up, there is almost no smoke, no heat, please check first whether this feature is ignored.
