    weak clouds new to DIY even though I push VG to 90%

    Just wondering my juice although Mixed at 90VG/10 PG is coming up really thin looking can't get the clouds I really want, I've ask a few forums and all I get is - put VG in the fridge as it makes it more viscous. But have done that and still coming up thin. I use a juice calculator and have tried so many different brands of VG - I'm sort of lost and can't work out where I'm going wrong.


    Obviously the weather recently could play some part in it with heat,

    Caramel cream mix 30ml

    Nic Strength 72mg/1ml 100% VG
    Nicotine Target - 4.7mg
    Caramel PG50%/50%VG
    Cream 100%VG
    Ratio PG10% - VG90%

    Mix
    Nicotine 1.96mls
    PG 1.5mls
    VG 22.04mls
    Caramel 3mls
    Cream 1.5mls

    I pushed it from max VG to as far as I could to 90%VG to see if it would help with clouds....but still coming up like my mod has diarrhea.

    Base drop vg is super thick. Just did a little research and the tvf8 .15 is best between 120/180w try upping ur wattage.
    Ps make sure ur batterys can handle the amps.

    Weather has nothing to do with it.
    Keep raising the watts till clouds come out. Your coil could also be fried, try a different one.

    Two things:
    1. Reducing your airflow in will make the vapor denser but it will also make it hotter, so the ideal way to adjust your AF is to have it wide open & adjust the wattage first until you are getting the flavor where you want it to be, then reduce the AF as much as you can stand it to be reduced.
    2. Disregard manufacturer coil wattage ratings, they are there as a guide only. The ideal wattage for you is where your coil is performing at its best for the juice you are using, while not tasting burnt, ie. delivering the best flavor. So turn the wattage up slowly until you just start to taste a bit of burnt then back the wattage off a little.

    Doing those 2 things will give you the optimum flavor/clouds for the atty you are using, no matter which atty you use, provided your build/coil is working properly.
