    How to reduce crackling when vaping (being discrete)

    Hi all

    I've been using my ithaka with the update ..... been a superb superb atty .... it is silent when vaping.
    This has enabled me to vape in discrete. No one could hear I was vaping

    Then I got kayfun 4 .... and some drippers.
    while I am satisfied with the vape etc ..... all other attys I've tried make a crackling sound when fired.
    This makes some people turn around to check what's that noise ?

    Does anyone know any idea why the crackling happens and how to reduce it ?

    Adding more VG helps.

    Turning down the watts and upping the airflow (suck like mad) also help in my experience.

    Thanks Northerner ... yeah ... turning down watts and upping the airflow ... mmm

    I vape at around 13 - 15 watts and Kayfun 4 has the S kit (so more airflow).

    I am thinking it is to do with the design of the chamber.
    bigger chamber = less crackle.

    Ithaka's chamber is defi big than kayfun 4's .... but taste / vapour are still great .....


    I guess I'll not find a solution to this problem.

    Tighter/more cotton through the coil seems to work for me. however it also may result in dry hits....

    Maybe you're using a low coil also? On my Kayfun I use 1.6 - 1.8 @ about 8w.... almost no crackle at all.

    This is what I found,if you get the cotton snug but not tight it seems to nearly stop the crackle and I havnt had any trouble with dry hits using 50/50,if it's tight then dry hit city

    Not sure about the Kayfuns, but on my subtanks and a few other clearos lowering the airflow actually helps reduce sound for me. The cracking is contained to inside the tank rather then the sound traveling out the airholes.
