Chain Vaping

Have you ever come across the term "chain vaping" and wondered what it really entails? Curious to know if it's just a buzzword or something more? Then keep reading to discover what chain vaping is, whether it's safe, and how it can impact not only your vaping experience but also the device itself.

What Is Chain Vaping?

Chain vaping describes a type of vaping where you take one puff after another in quick succession with only a brief pause between each puff. It increases the amount of vapour without giving your device time to cool down. However, if you practise chain vaping too often, it can damage your device and have negative side effects on your body as well.

It can be done with different types of devices such as vape pens or mods. It is popular among people who are looking for a stronger hit, increased amount of smoke clouds, and more intense flavours.

Is Chain Vaping Safe?

While chain vaping may seem harmless, there are certain risks and possible side effects that you should keep in mind. Let's look at what chain vaping can cause to your body as well as your device.

  • Dehydration: When you take one puff after another, it can cause a decrease in saliva production, leading to dry mouth and throat. Due to the loss of liquids in your body, it can also cause dehydration. To avoid this, remember to stay hydrated while vaping by drinking enough water.
  • Nicotine Overconsumption: Chain vaping may lead to excessive nicotine intake, increasing the risk of nicotine poisoning. This can cause various health problems such as nausea, dizziness, rapid heart rate, and vomiting.
  • Respiratory Problems: Too much vaping may irritate the respiratory system, potentially causing shortness of breath, excessive coughing, or increasing the likelihood of conditions such as asthma. 

Can Chain Vaping Damage the Device?

Along with various health problems, excessive chain smoking can cause damage to your device.

  • Overheating: By not letting your device cool down between puffs, some components such as the coil and battery can easily overheat. The overheating can affect the performance of your device as well as its longevity.
  • Reduced Battery Life: Chain vaping puts a constant demand on the battery, potentially leading to faster depletion and shorter battery lifespan.
  • E-liquid Saturation: It may also result in e-liquid oversaturation of coils and wicks, causing flooding and leaking. This can negatively impact the overall functionality of the device, requiring more frequent maintenance and replacement of parts.
  • Coil Degradation: Too much chain vaping can accelerate the degradation of the coil due to prolonged exposure to heat and e-liquid. This can result in a burnt taste, decreased vapour production, and a shorter lifespan for the coil. 

If you want to avoid these issues, the best way is to take breaks between each puff and allow your device to cool down a little bit. Regular maintenance and cleaning can also help prolong the lifespan of your vape.

How Do I Stop Chain Vaping?

To break the habit of chain vaping, set limits during your vaping sessions. Implementing distractions or engaging in activities that keep your hands and mind occupied can help reduce the urge to continuously vape.

Does Chain Vaping Damage Coils?

Chain vaping can indeed damage coils due to the continuous exposure to heat and e-liquid saturation. Without allowing coils to cool down, it causes quicker degradation, burnt taste, decreased vapour production, and a shortened lifespan for the coil.

Can Chain Vaping Cause Anxiety?

While everyone's response to vaping is different, some individuals may experience increased anxiety due to the continuous intake of nicotine. Nicotine is known to trigger or amplify anxiety symptoms in some individuals. It's essential to be mindful of your vaping habits and how they impact your mental well-being.
