Molnjakt – Cloud-Chasing (ska översättas)
Cloud-chasing, Molnjakt eller extreme vaping is the activity of blowing large clouds of vapor using an electronic cigarette.Cloud chasing is an art where people build very complex coils of different types of ”wire”—the main one used is kanthal. Other types are nickel, titanium, or stainless steel. After building these coils, people adjust them to get a set ohm reading to where they can produce a big cloud of vapor. A wick is made it with different types of cotton, and e-juice is placed on the cotton. A battery provides heat to vaporize the e-juice, and users can then blow massive clouds. New cloud-chasers should remember to always build safely and do the proper research before jumping into this hobby.
Some cloud-chasers known as ”professional vapers” take part in cloud-blowing contests in what is a called a ”cloud competition”, competing against one another to exhale the largest cloud of vapor. This is increasing in popularity attracting spectators, known as ”cloud-gazers”. The competitions are becoming a routine event at some local vape shops. Some teenagers participate in the competitions, sans nicotine. Two major cloud competitions in the US are the International Cloud Championships in California, and the World Series of Vape, in Las Vegas. There are also competitions in New Jersey, Illinois and New Mexico. Some consider it to be a sport and competitors can win prize money in the range of $250 to $2,000. Some competitors are sponsored by e-cigarette companies.
