In the past few years, it has become increasingly common for pod-based vaping devices to work with coils of different resistances. Depending on the device, that’s done either by offering different pods that all work with the same device or by allowing you to remove the coil from the pod and install a different one. That’s great for vapers who are restless and like to try new things, but it can also be problematic if you’re looking for an experience that’s simple and straightforward – especially if you’re planning to use your device for salt nic vape juice.
As you might be aware, nicotine salt e-liquid is generally the most potent vape juice on the market. Available in strengths that usually top out at around 50 mg/ml, nicotine salt e-liquid is intended to deliver nicotine as efficiently as a tobacco cigarette. That’s exactly what you want if you’re new to vaping because it helps to ensure that you’ll be completely satisfied with the switch and won’t be tempted to revert to smoking. The high strength of salt nic vape juice can become a major drawback, though, if you inhale too much of it at a time – which is exactly what can happen if your vaping device is too powerful.
So, are you thinking about buying a new pod vape – or trying to buy new coils or pods for your existing device – and wondering what ohm is best for salt nic vape juice? We’ll start you out with a direct answer, and then we’ll explain the logic behind it.
The ideal coil resistance for nicotine salt vape juice is usually 0.5 ohm or higher.
To learn why that’s the case, you’ll have to read on!
What Do Ohms Mean in Vaping?
When people talk about ohms in vaping, what they’re talking about is the electrical resistance of the heating coil that vaporizes the e-liquid. A vape coil is made from a material or alloy with a high resistance – usually kanthal or stainless steel – and the material becomes hot when electricity flows through it. The resistance of the coil describes how much it restricts the flow of electricity. A coil with a lower resistance is less restrictive to electrical current, which means that it’ll operate at a higher wattage for a given battery voltage.
If all of this sounds confusing, here’s the most important thing that you need to know: A coil with a lower resistance usually produces more vapor than a higher-resistance coil. That’s why a coil with a resistance of about 0.5 ohm or higher is usually best for salt nic vape juice – because you don’t want to use a high-strength e-liquid with a device that produces huge clouds.
Before you assume that any vaping device with the right coil resistance is going to be good for nicotine salt, though, it’s crucial for you to understand the importance of your device’s airflow characteristics. We’ll discuss that next.
A Vape’s Airflow Is Almost as Important as Its Coil Resistance
Before you buy any vaping device for nicotine salt e-liquid, you need to take a close look at its airflow characteristics. If you’re using salt nic, you’ll almost certainly want to use the mouth-to-lung inhaling technique because that’s the way you inhale when smoking a cigarette. In order to deliver a good experience for mouth-to-lung inhaling, a vaping device needs to have tight airflow.
The good news is that most of the pod systems and small vape pens on the market are designed for mouth-to-lung inhaling – so in most cases, you don’t need to worry too much about this. The airflow of vaping devices has become a bit more important for nicotine salt users in recent years, though, because it’s increasingly common these days to find powerful “pod mods” that are pod based but offer the vapor production of full-fledged vape mods. These devices are often designed for direct-to-lung inhaling and can potentially be extremely unpleasant to use with salt nic vape juice.
So, how can you identify whether a pod vape or vape pen is designed for mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung inhaling? The easiest way to tell is by looking at the device. A mouth-to-lung vape will usually have these characteristics.
- It’ll usually be very small. Most mouth-to-lung vapes are thin enough to carry comfortably in your pocket. It’ll probably also be small enough that you can easily conceal the entire device in your hand for discreet vaping.
- It’ll either have a tiny airflow opening, or it’ll have a dial or tab that allows you to adjust the airflow. A tobacco cigarette has a tight draw, so adjustable airflow can be a very useful feature for a vaping device to have if you want to replicate the experience of smoking as closely as possible.
- It’ll have a narrow mouthpiece. In order for a vaping device to have the same tightness as a cigarette, it makes sense that the mouthpiece should be about as narrow as a cigarette. If a device has a wide mouthpiece, it’s probably designed for direct-to-lung inhaling. Although direct-to-lung vapes often have adjustable airflow, it’s still hard to get a device with a wide mouthpiece to deliver a cigarette-like draw.
How to Know if You’re Getting Too Much Nicotine
Are you concerned that the vaping device you’re currently using might not be the right one for nicotine salt? If your device’s cloud production is too much for the nicotine strength you’re using, you’re going to get more nicotine than you need and won’t enjoy your experience. If you have trouble vaping because it irritates your throat or makes you cough – or if you find that vaping makes you feel jittery or overly buzzed – there’s a good chance that you’re consuming more nicotine than you need. In this case, you have three options:
- You can try switching to a lower nicotine strength. Many nicotine salt e-liquids are available in two different strengths, and you may find that the lower strength provides a good experience with your device.
- You can try switching to e-liquid with freebase nicotine. Freebase e-liquids are available in much lower strengths – usually 3 and 6 mg/ml – that are appropriate for more powerful vaping devices.
- You can switch to a different vaping device. Pod systems and vape pens designed for mouth-to-lung inhaling are often quite inexpensive, so this shouldn’t cost too much.
Delta Airlines is focused on being reliable with its business in Ghana
One of America’s major Airlines, Delta Airlines has reaffirmed its unwavering commitment to the Ghanaian market, signaling a strong dedication to fostering air travel connectivity in the country.
As a major player in the global aviation industry, Delta acknowledges the importance of the Ghanaian market and underscores its commitment to providing top-notch services for passengers traveling to and from Ghana.
The Managing Director of International Communications for Delta Airlines, Rahsaan Johnson in an in interaction with Ghanaian media at the Atlanta Headquarters of Delta, emphasised the airline’s commitment to reliability within the Ghanaian market. Dispelling rumors circulating mainly on social media platforms that the aircraft serving African routes, particularly Ghana, are obsolete or unsuitable for travel, Rahsaan highlighted Delta’s strategic focus on ensuring a dependable and consistent air travel experience for passengers in Ghana.
He further touched on the several awards Delta Airlines has received, highlighting its consistent recognition as the most distinguished airline in the United States for customer service, satisfaction, reliability, and punctuality.
“I would say Delta is first of all the most awarded airline in the United States of America. For several years, at least 10 years, Delta has had the highest ranking in customer service, customer satisfaction, reliability, fewest cancellations and most on-time performance,” he said
Rahsaan Johnson to a greater extent disclosed that customers traveling from Accra have consistently rated Delta among their top choices for satisfaction across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
“Our focus in Ghana is to uphold the already high levels of customer satisfaction. Passengers flying with Delta from Accra consistently provide us with some of our highest satisfaction ratings across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East,” he emphasized.
While addressing concerns about aircraft selection, Rahsaan, made known that the multiple award-winning airline operated a diverse fleet capable of serving global destinations, stressing that the planes deployed on Ghana routes are also used for flights within the United States, Europe, South America, and beyond.
He specifically asserted that the Boeing 767-300 aircraft used for flights to and from Ghana, also caters to some of Delta’s most valued customers on routes like New York to Los Angeles.
In the words of the director, “The 767-300 airplane that we fly to Ghana carries some of our highest-paying customers en route between New York and Los Angeles for example. The aircraft that we fly to and from Ghana, is the right size aircraft for us to be financially successful in Ghana.”
“What we want to do is to have a strong business that allows us to give the right amount of service to the community so that we can fly that route every day, so we can fly that route and be successful. The alternative is a larger airplane for fewer flights a day or fewer flights per week,” he added.
With air travel playing an integral role in connecting nations and fostering economic and cultural exchanges, reliability becomes a cornerstone for airline success. As Delta continues to operate in the Ghanaian market, its commitment to reliability is not only a commitment to punctuality but also an assurance of consistent service quality. The airline industry is highly competitive, and Johnson’s statement signals Delta’s intent to distinguish itself through a reputation for reliability.
Delta has operated nonstop service from Accra to New York-JFK since December 2006. Delta currently operates a daily flight and has overall, transported more than 1,350,000 customers between Ghana and the United States since 2006.

Holy Child alumni illuminate the path forward amidst national school power crisis
In recent times, the narrative of power challenges in Ghanaian schools has escalated, with numerous public institutions such as Mfantsipim School, Accra Academy, and Mondo Senior High Technical School among others facing abrupt electricity disconnections.
This persistent issue highlights the dire need for sustainable solutions in powering educational facilities, crucial for maintaining the quality of education.
Stepping into the spotlight with a pioneering initiative, the 1999 alumni of Holy Child School have set a remarkable precedent.
In a bid to combat these electricity woes, these visionary women have successfully funded the transition of their alma mater to 75% solar energy. This initiative not only addresses the immediate problem of power outages and financial strains on the school’s budget but also serves as a beacon of climate-positive action with the potential for carbon credit benefits.
Founded in 1946 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Holy Child School has long stood as a bastion of educational excellence and societal impact in Ghana. Its alumni include distinguished personalities such as Ghana’s Ambassador to France, Anna Bossman; Goldman Sachs Vice President, Sabina Dankwah; and University of Ghana’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Amfo, to name a few.
The Solar Project
This solar project, a gift from the 1999 alumni commemorating their 25th anniversary and coinciding with the school’s 78th speech and prize-giving day, symbolizes a profound act of giving back and forward.
In an exclusive interview with the Business and Financial Times, engineer Ing. Mrs. Sheila Enyonam Akyea, president of the year group, shared: “This project builds on the foundation laid by our predecessors. We’re thrilled to extend their initial contribution, ensuring every corner of our school benefits. It’s our way of ensuring current and future students receive the same level of empowerment and opportunity we had.”
Project’s Committee Chair Ing. Mrs. Teresa Kyei-Mensah, mentioned the substantial investment the solar installation demands, emphasizing ongoing fundraising efforts.
she said: “Once completed, the initiative promises significant savings for the school and, by extension, the Ghana Education Service, redirecting funds towards essential educational resources,” she added.
Solar power, increasingly recognized for its affordability and environmental benefits, stands as a viable solution for Ghana’s educational sector and its broader climate goals. With abundant sunshine year-round, Ghana is ideally positioned to harness solar energy, reducing the financial burden on public resources while contributing to global carbon reduction efforts.
The project was completed in January 2024 after a 1-month testing phase. The year group eagerly anticipate the handover ceremony at the 78th Speech and Prize-Giving Day of Holy Child School in Cape Coast on Saturday, 9th March 2024 marking a significant milestone in their commitment to sustainable development and quality education in Ghana.
This initiative not only lights the way for other schools grappling with similar challenges but also underscores the powerful impact of alumni engagement in shaping a brighter future for the next generation.
