Sub Ohm Vaping Evolution
Sub Ohm vaping mods and tanks have become very popular. Since vaping has entered into our lives, people are always looking for ways to improve their vaping experience and explore every possible aspect and capability of their vaping device. There is a big number of extreme vapers that have discovered Sub Ohm vaping and they just love it. But what is Sub Ohm vaping? Simply put, Sub Ohm vaping is when you vape with a device whose atomizer coils have a resistance of less than one ohm. As a result you get really huge, bad ass clouds, direct lung hits, more intense flavor and warmer vapor.
The reason some advanced vapers use Sub Ohm coils, is to increase the power output of fixed voltage devices like mechanical vape mods and non-variable regulated devices to create more vapor and more intense flavor. Although it might sound simple it’s actually a complex and often controversial topic within the vaping community. The goal of this guide is to make sure you have accurate information so you can decide if Sub Ohm vaping is right for you.
How does Sub Ohm Vaping Work
Sub Ohm vaping utilizes Ohm’s and Joule’s laws of electricity. For our purposes this means, a non-variable voltage source, like for instance the battery in a mechanical vape mod, will increase the overall power output (wattage) of your device when you decrease the resistance (ohms) of your coils. It is absolutely crucial that Sub Ohm vaping must be done safely. As you decrease your resistance you will increase the amperage your device uses to supply the current needed. This increases the strain on the battery and also increases the heat that the battery and coils generate. For this reason you must ensure that you never exceed the amperage limit of your battery or it could fail causing possible fire or explosion.
Ways You Can Sub Ohm Vape
There are three ways for someone to enter the Sub Ohm vaping experience:
Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDA’s)
RDA’s are the first devices used for Sub Ohm vaping. They are smaller than tanks and they contain the coils you built wrapped with the cotton. In this case you have to drip some e-liquid onto the coils and cotton and then vape it.
Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTA’s)
RTA’s are Tanks where you have the option of building your own coils, without having to drip e-liquid every time you want to take some puffs. It is more practical than using an RDA and you can optimize your vaping according to your needs and personal pleasure.
Sub Ohm Tanks are probably the easiest and more convenient way of entering Sub Ohm vaping. You don’t have the option of building your own coils, as they are fixed and pre-installed in the tank. You just have to fill the tank with e-liquid and you can start vaping. These coils usualC0020ly last 2-3 weeks and they are disposables. There are companies like Aspire or Kangertech who have launched some great Sub Ohm Tanks and it’s really worth trying them out.
Sub Ohm Vaping And E-liquids
When vaping using Sub Ohm coils a substantial amount of vapor is produced, compared to using coils above 1 Ohm on the same device. Typically Sub Ohm vapers take direct lung hits, meaning they inhale straight to their lungs all the vapor they can inhale from each puff. Those who vape Sub Ohm usually favor e-liquids with a higher percentage of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) than Propylene Glycol (PG). The reason for this is that the Vegetable Glycerin (VG) creates larger clouds and denser vapor production. VG has reduced throat hit compared to PG which helps to accommodate for the increased amount of vapor inhaled.
Usually those vaping Sub Ohm will also use lower nicotine strengths (typically 6mg/ml and under), compared to those vaping above 1 Ohm because of the additional vapor produced and inhaled each pull. There are thousands of e-liquid options in the market and you can even create your own flavors. As for Sub Ohm vaping mods and tanks, there are a lot of different setup options as well.
