Sub-ohm vaping has become a part of the vaping culture. If you are new to vaping, there is a chance that you have come across sub ohm devices already. Things can be confusing for new vapers. But there is no need to worry; we will walk you through the process of sub-ohm vaping in this article.
One of the first things you need to know is that sub ohm vaping is similar but quite different from regular vaping. Sub ohm devices work with low resistance coils – usually less than one ohm. This is where the name sub ohm vaping comes from. If you don’t know anything about ohms or the ohm’s law, it is ‘a unit of electrical resistance equal to the resistance between two points on a conductor when a potential difference of one volt between them produces a current of one ampere.’
Sub ohm tanks give you bigger clouds of vapor and a richer flavor. These devices are usually perfect for direct lung vaping. With sub ohm tanks, you need a mod that can produce at least 40 watts to 200 watts.
There are different types of sub ohm tanks on the market. Apart from the usual sub ohm tanks, there are also ‘rebuildables’ like rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDA). The difference between rebuildables and normal sub ohm tanks is that you can customize the coils that you use for the former, while the latter requires prebuilt coils. Also, an RDA does not have a tank so you need to drip your e-juice after every other hit. There are some rebuildables, particularly the rebuildable tank atomizer, which is a combination of a normal sub ohm tank and an RDA.
Another point that you have to keep in mind with sub ohm vaping is your nicotine content. With sub ohm tanks, you do not need e-liquids with a high level of nicotine. The reason for this comes down to the fact that sub ohm devices give you a stronger nicotine hit. With sub-ohm devices, you take direct lung puffs, which means more nicotine is delivered into your system. It is been recommended that you use e-liquids with a nicotine concentration level of 12mg or less if you are using a sub ohm device.
The final point to take away from this sub ohm vaping guide is that not all sub ohm tanks are the same in terms of quality. Some sub ohm tanks are low quality. They may leak and give you other problems. However, there are many high-quality sub ohm tanks out there. WOTOFO makes some of the best sub ohm tanks on the market. The company’s nexMESH and Gear RTA have been hailed by vaping pundits for their quality and performance.
