When shopping for vaporizers technical features can sometimes be confusing. Knowing and understanding your device's output will go a long way to ensuring steady vapor and a long lifetime for your vape.
Newer vape users might feel intimidated by some of the technical aspects of vaping, so hopefully, this guide can help you understand just exactly mAh is and how it affects your battery life.
mAh Rating: What It Means
'mAh' describes the milliampere-hour and defines the total charge capacity of your vaporizer's battery. In simpler terms (which I also needed upon first writing this) mAh is used as a unit for measuring power over time, and tells you how much energy a battery can store at once.
Let's say you're checking out the Groove Cara+ Vaporizer, which has 1700mAh. If 1,000 milliamperes = 1 amp of power, this vaporizer will last around 1 hour and 17 minutes before being completely drained. This means when a battery is fully charged with a higher mAh rating, it will power the vape for longer before it dies and needs to be recharged.
The simplest way to think about it is: more mAhs means more time for vaping.
How mAh Affects Your Session
I'm gonna be honest here, there is going to be some more math you'll have to do to fully realize how mAh's affect your session.
If you know the electrical current your battery and atomizer use when engaged you can calculate on-the-fly how much battery life you have left. This can come in hand during hikes or festivals when you might be without a power source to charge your vape and want to make sure you can use it later.
So, you'll start by dividing the voltage of your battery by the resistance level (ohms) of your atomizer. If you're using a 2.5-ohm atomizer, powered by a 3.7-volt battery, you'll be drawing around 1.48 amps, which equals 1480 mAh. That's almost an hour and a half of continuous vaping, not bad!
We know that not all battery-atomizer combos are the same, so if you are having trouble doing the math in your head (hey, it can be hard to do on-the-go), check out the Ohm's Law Calculator. This will give you the electrical current drawn by your device in amps, from there just multiply it by 1,000 and you have your mAh.
Vaporizers With A High mAh Rating
Now that you're a math whiz we can get to the fun stuff. We've got a few beastly vaporizers in stock that have sky-high mAh to ensure your sessions last for hours. We'll break down our favorite portable vaporizers that provides substantial mAhs.
