Try breathing some real air once in awhile and put down your vaporizer more often other than to change the battery.

LMAO you need some new batteries those are dangerously worn out.

We’re paying congress millions to do nothing. We’re paying Trump nothing to do everything.

So do you use about a gallon of juice a day? ;)

I've got about 24 cells in rotation ranging from 18350s to 18650s.

Some Vappower (18350s and 18500s), some Sony, LG, and Sanyo, but I mostly use my 14 Samsung 25Rs (18650s).

Most of my builds are on average .4-.5oHm (ish).

All my juice is 8mg/ml with no added PG (except from some flavor concentrates).

I tend to favor vaping at or around 30-50W on regulated and unregulated devices alike.

I vape a LOT by my standards, and go through 3-7ml a day (3-4ml in an average day, up to 7ml or more on a rebuilding or new shiny day).

Granted I generally have somewhere from 2-6 devices with me most times, but I still only end up having to charge 2 cells a day on average + topping up my daily driver (Dovpo GX-200 + KS clone + 2*Sanyo NCR18650GA combo) because I prefer it's output above 3.7V under load.

If you're going through charges overly fast, your builds aren't efficient enough, and/or the way you puff on them isn't using the build to it's potential (usually less likely).

Trying thinner wires, especially wires 30awg and thinner with twisted and parallel configurations is a good starting place as well as trying more complicated wire creations for some too.

Reducing the mass of the coil is the key here though. Less mass = more cooling of the coil from the airflow and faster cool down time, and, in turn, also means faster heat up time and faster transfer of heat to the juice.

This may also demand more juice flow, and sometimes air flow also.

@johnny_469

So what are you saying carrying around a suit case full of batteries is not efficient? ;)

Why not everyone is different. I'm about your opposite. I shoot for making the battery last as long as it can while still delivering what I consider a satisfying vape.
