Is there any significant difference between vaping indoors and outdoors — and what works best for you?
Depending on where you reside, your decision to vape indoors or outdoors may be guided by vaping regulations in your country. And counties seem to be on very different pages about whether and how vaping should be regulated. Establishments like bars and cafes are often left to decide their own vaping rules and, in many cases, things are just confusing.
Thus, even if you do prefer to vape indoors, you may not always be able to do so. In general, it is always recommended to inquire if vaping is allowed on the premises of an establishment and walking into a cafe or bar already blowing clouds is probably not a good idea to (naturally, if you are sure about that establishment’s vaping policies, it’s a different story).
The same applies to vape in someone’s home. If your host is vape-friendly or open to discussion, you can probably make your case for vaping indoors.
As second-hand vapor seems to be a pretty much non-existent thing and the odor from vaping generally doesn’t settle on clothing, hair or furniture, vaping in your own home seems to have no major drawbacks. Or have you experienced any?
What about vaping outdoors?
Once again, it all comes back to where you live. Some countries impose strict band on vaping in public and vaping on the street can get you in some serious trouble. Where it is allowed, however, the key “rules” to follow are pretty much common sense: it’s best to direct your clouds away from people and, when in a tight crowd, stealth vaping with subtly flavored e-liquids may come in handy.
Are there any drawbacks to vaping outdoors?
The main problem here could be the weather. If it’s too cold outside, your e-juice will get thicker and won’t taste the same. Plus, there is a higher chance of it clogging your tank. Your mouthpiece may also become unpleasantly cold (especially if it’s metallic).
If it’s too hot, it may start thinning and, once again, you will be tasting the difference. The temperature will also affect battery performance on your device.
Vaping in strong wind can also be an unpleasant experience: as vapor is very light, it will instantly get blown away and you may feel like you are not vaping at all.
Do you prefer to vape indoors or outdoors? Do you think the experience differs?
I know that sometimes the wind is a factor when it comes to vapor. You need to remember that water vapor is less dense than cigarette smoke, so the vapor will disappear quicker than smoke. So, the wind will take the vapor making it seem like you didn’t have much of a vape.
As far as flavor goes, sometimes the temperature will factor in. If it’s colder outside, the juice will thicken up a little, and won’t have it’s “normal” taste. If it’s really hot outside, the juice will become thinner, and the taste will again be off.
