What is Sub-Ohm Vaping?
April 11th, 2018

If you’re new to vaping, you’ve probably heard the term Sub-ohm being thrown around. Today we’re going to explain exactly what sub-ohm vaping is and hopefully help you decide if it’s right for you.

An ohm is a unit used to measure electrical resistance and it’s named after Georg Simon Ohm. Shoutout for all these dope clouds, George.

Now, all coils have a resistance reading. Usually found on either the packaging or the coil itself. Now what Sub-ohm vaping means is the coil that you are vaping on has a resistance under 1 ohm. So, what does this all mean? Generally, the lower the resistance of your coil, the more power you’re able to pump through the coil - resulting in bigger, denser clouds. 

Sub-ohm vaping took the industry by storm around late 2014 when the first Sub ohm tank was released being the Aspire Atlantis. But ever since then, these sub ohm tanks are improving quite drastically with different types of coils to get you thicker, more flavour packed clouds. But before the subohm tanks hit the market, the only way to get a sub-ohm cloud chucking vape was building your own coils. To this day, rebuildables are still the go-to method of getting the most dense clouds out of your vape because you can really fine tune what kind of vape your going for. Another thing with sub-ohm vaping is that it’s generally a direct to lung type of inhale. Meaning instead of inhaling into the mouth, then into the lungs, you’re actually inhaling straight into your lungs.

So I guess the main question is “Who is sub ohm vaping for?”. Well, I’d say that if you are vaping on a starter kit and looking for an upgrade in performance, i’d definitely check out a sub ohm setup. There’s something just fun about chucking massive ammounts of vapour. Also, You’ll definitely notice a flavour increase when you start sub ohm vaping as there is much more vapour entering your system. Now, sub ohm vaping isn’t going to be for everyone. If you are looking for something very similar to cigarette with a mouth-to-lung inhale, sub ohm vaping might not be for you. Also, Sub ohm setups are usually pretty bulky because you need much more power going into a sub-ohm setup. You’re going to need more battery power. And with the added battery power and clouds, you’re also going to go through juice and battery life much quicker. 

With a subohm tank, I’d usually fill it up about 3 times during a full work day, opposed to once a day with a non sub ohm setup. What I actually like to do is leave all my subohm setups either at the office or at home and when i’m on the go, I’ll have a mouth to lung setup that’s not only more compact, but also stealthy. Now, with all this power going through your sub ohm setup, its very important to learn proper battery safety. If you stress a battery further than it’s supposed to run, you’re gonna have a bad time.
