Variable Wattage (VW) - an electronic cigarette mod that allows easy regulation of the wattage output. A VW mod can be considered more advanced than a VV mod, because such a device allows the user not to worry about the resistance of the atomizer too much, as it reads it and calculates the necessary voltage automatically.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) - is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid with a gently sweet taste, one of the main ingredients of e-liquids. Vegetable glycerin is thicker than propylene glycol (PG); it produces denser but milder vapor.
