    I've been trying to figure out if temperature will affect or ruin juice. I drive for a living and I'm in a lot of different climate/temperatures from day to day. I noticed a few juices I had with me had flavor changes after going from 70 something degrees to low 30s. One juice even went completely flavorless. So does anyone know anything about this?

    I leave a small bottle of whatever juice I have that I'm not a huge fan of in my car, because I drive about an hour to work, and want to have it just incase I forget my bottle that morning. In the cold I haven't noticed this, but when it starts to warm up, to about 70 degrees, the juice to me does tend to lose flavor and even spits back when I vape. I think temperature does affect the juice.

    In my experience it has not. I've left unicorn bottles in my car during freezing temperatures and didn't notice any difference. Yesterday I had a bottle end up in the dryer for 30 min and there was no decerniable change in flavor or consistency. However, vaping juice at higher wattages will cause a change in flavor, IMO.

    No proof but I suspect that the higher temperatures will cause problems with ejuice.

    Heat is one method of "quick steeping" so it stands to reason that warming a juice up will affect its flavor. Other than that, the only real diff I've seen had more to do with atmospheric pressure than heat -- a perfectly well-behaved kayfun had a minor leak, my first summer as a vaper, when I went from 90 degree humidity to indoor 75 degree dryness. I've heard that changes in altitude can cause the same thing, previously well-behaved tanks leaking as the altitude changes. About the only cure for that would be an RDA, which doesn't depend on pressure/vacuum.

    I live in a hot climate and haven't noticed effects with the juice I vape. Even after leaving some in the hot car, it still vaped up with good flavor and consistency. Maybe it depends on the vg/pg/flavor ratios and flavor types? I'm probably talking out my ass.
    AndriaD is on to something with pressure though. It does have an effect on all three of my tanks.

    I think it's more that some juice needs steeping and/or changes as it steeps (heating), and some juice doesn't need steeping, and either won't change, or changes for the worse, with heat.

    All tanks will leak eventually due to barometric pressure and temperature changes. I had a series of meetings in Colorado and drove over to Nebraska on the weekend to meet up with some buddies. My Heracles piddled all over it's self and my Evic VT when I dropped in elevation.

    As far as elevation making tanks leak that is true. Only time my Griffin has leaked was on a drive from TX to CO.
    I'm suspecting now that the juices I've had lose flavor over cold temps was probably do to their quality. It's only been a few and the good ones I have have not changed at all.
    The first thing that got me worried about the cold temperatures was when I bought a house juice from a shop. I vaped on it all day and it was good. I left it in my truck and went home for a couple days. The temps dripped down to the mid 30s and when I went to vape it again the flavor was completely gone. I still have the bottle and have never been able to get any flavor again. (It was Cherry Cheesecake flavor)

    Oh yeah, Wattage definitely changes flavor. Some candy vapes I have change a lot with higher watts. Low wattage keeps a good sweet flavor and higher watts dulls down the flavor.

    That might be why we're told not to store ejuice in the fridge.

    That might be it. I think it mainly depends on the quality of the juice itself.
