Sub-Ohm vaping. You may have heard of this term a time or two if you vape and if you’ve spent
time at our shop or watching videos online. This specific type of vaping is gaining more
popularity as this industry has a whole continues gaining momentum. Since its inception, people
have always wanted to blow the biggest clouds and get the strongest nicotine hit. As a result of
these endeavors, sub-ohm vaping was born.
By having a non-variable battery, such as in a mechanical mod, reducing the resistance increases
the overall power output. Basically, as the resistance of a coil is reduced it heats quicker and
results in bigger vapor production, more nicotine per hit, and a larger burst of flavor.
Generally speaking, sub-ohm vaping refers to when the resistance of the coil is reduced below 1
ohm. Once the resistance is below that, the vapor production is drastically increased and that
means a bigger hit.
How Do I Vape Sub-ohm?
The classic method of obtaining sub-ohm hits is to use a rebuildable dripping atomizer. This is
an atomizer where the coil is built directly on the deck and the e-liquid is applied directly to a
wicking material every few hits. To build this, it’s simply a matter of how you build the coil. By
building it such that the overall resistance of the build is below 1 ohm, you’ll be able to
experience sub ohm vaping right away. Rebuildable tank atomizers have been gaining popularity
as of late. These atomizers use a tank and have a deck to build customer coils. The real
advantage here is the liquid capacity, but otherwise, sub-ohm building is nearly identical with
this kind of atomizer. Lastly are sub-ohm clearomizers. These atomizers are using pre-build
disposable coils that’re switched at will. The advantage with a sub-ohm tank isn’t needing to
build the coil yourself and you simply purchase the coil with a resistance you’re seeking.
Should I Be Doing It?
Is sub-ohm vaping the right choice for you? It's up to personal preference. To determine this, it's
best to look at the pros and cons. Some of the benefits of sub-ohm vaping are an increased vapor
production, more flavor, and a stronger nicotine hit. Some of the drawbacks are a reduced battery
life and rapid consumption of e-liquid. Really, if you’re searching for the next level of flavor or a
bigger cloud and you don't mind the shorter battery life and using up juice rapidly, then sub-ohm
vaping is definitely the route to take. If you aren't really searching for clouds and flavor, or you
aren't really willing to make the sacrifices of battery life and juice usage, it may be best to stick
with a resistance of 1 ohm or greater.
At the end of the day, sub-ohm vaping can be an amazing way to gain cloud production and
flavor, so make sure to give it a try if those are your goals!
