    I've been searching all night within this forum as well as Google and have turned up nothing. If this has been covered feel free to point me in the right direction and I do apologize!

    I live in the northern states so I've never thought about this before. Since my Florida vacation began I've noticed that when going from cool indoors to 90+ outside, I can feel a slight moistness forming on the exterior of my setup. I assume the same is happening to the interior of the mod, and batteries. Once the temperatures equalize this would stop of course, but I am wondering, is it safe to vape with that slight dampness? Do I need to wait for it to abate? Would appreciate any insight from those who live closer to the equator.

    In case it's relevant I have a realeaux dna 200 with a Uwell crown and an ipv d2 with an Atlantis, no mechs at all. Also some rdas but I only use them indoors so they're not relevant.

    Much obliged! Vape safe

    It can get extremely hot where i live (110), so I frequently go from a/c to hot - no issues here at all, except sometimes some leaking!

    Welcome to VU
    I've never ever had an issue with condensation on a mod here in FL, and I work in a 60° warehouse, so going outside is even worse than the normal 70's a/c settings. My glasses even need wipers for that.:D

    Shouldn't be an issue.. unless it's creating enough condensation to drip. FWIW, this would be more of an issue for REGULATED mod than a mech. mech doesn't have a PCB to get damaged.

    I live in the Orlando, FL area. I work in a datacenter that is kept at 62deg F. I then go outside to "vape" during the summer and my glasses fog up within seconds. I've had no issues with any of my MODs thus far going back/forth.

    You shouldn't see any exsessive condensation problem affecting your vaporizor when going from air conditioning to heat or vice-versa. I wouldn't see this as a problem even in more extreme temperature changes.

    Living in California, I would find condensation on the outside and inside of my Sigelei 100+. For awhile, I thought I was leaking juice because I was using an RTA that would sometimes leak, but it would happen even if I had no leaks. I've not seen any in my Smok Alien, but then again, I have different (better) batteries now, and the battery compartment is such that it's harder to see on the inside.
