A Brief Look into Temperature Controlled Electronic Cigarettes

This will only be a short one today since temperature controlled electronic cigarettes are something I haven't delved into before and aim to research in thorough detail moving forward. I will provide further details and a review on certain products once I have a good grasp on the subject.

My researcher has so far provided me with the following information.

The number of electronic cigarettes with temperature control functionality is on the rise; this allows for an infallible way of avoiding the overheating of Glycerin and Propylene-Glycol (VG), the main base of e liquid. Temperature control also prevents 'dry puffs', which occur when the wick becomes too dry to generate vapor and burns. In the debate about e-cig safety, both sides can now agree that the temperature of the atomizer’s coil – usually heated to release vapor – creates the distinction between an electronic cigarette being infinitely safer than a real cigarette. Recent studies, however, suggest that both pose their own risks and due diligence is required when choosing the electronic cigarette.

The rising number of temperature-controlled devices gives a guaranteed way of avoiding the above conditions without conjecture or fanciful thinking. The various temperature controlled devices that exist right now can be used with coils made out of non-resistance wire like nickel. This allows the device to read the coil’s temperature so that it can cut off before the temperature reaches unsafe levels for the wick, liquid, and coil. Manufacturers such as Vapor Shark and Hana Modz currently have devices that use YiHi’s SX Mini class and Evolv’s DNA40 board in the market. They should be available all over the world after the Chinese New Year. So be on the lookout.



Temperature-sensing coils currently exist for a number of clearomizers: Kangertech Subtank and Aspire Nautilus. However, the more adventurous e-cig lovers can create their own nickel coils for the myriad rebuildable atomizers that are currently available in the market. Although such devices can only be found in the high-end market – going for slightly more than £100 – the price should be expected to go down. According to Gizmag, thriving competition and rampant cloning will ensure that this technology is available at lower prices in no time.

I will compare one of these devices to the current e-cig configuration recommended in the Best Electronic Cigarette 2016 article before giving my verdict on which one I would recommend using going forward.
