If you are in the world of vaping then chances are you have heard of sub ohm vaping. This kind of vaping is slightly different from puffing on your regular starter kit. In this blog, we are going to answer “what is sub ohm vaping” so you can decide if it is right for you.
This is a good place to start when explaining what is sub ohm vaping. An ohm is a unit to measure electric resistance. All coils will have a resistance, which will be found either on the coil or on the packaging. If the coil is under 1, then it is a sub ohm coil. When resistance is lower it produces more flavour and more vapour.
In 2014 sub ohm made its debut in the vaping world. This was due to the first sub ohm tank coming out, the Aspire Atlantis. Since that tank, there have been some great improvements on sub ohm tanks which provide more flavour and more vapor. Such as the Aspire Cleito. The reason why you enjoy more flavour is due to more vapour being pulled into your lungs.
Sub ohm vaping isn’t for everyone. For one, sub ohm vaping is a different style to your cigalike or starter kits. Instead of mouth to lung, like a cigarette, you inhale the vapour directly into the lungs. If you are looking for something like a cigarette then sub ohm vaping won’t be your first choice due to the way in which you inhale.
A sub ohm vaping device will be bulkier than the alternative. This is due to it needing a bigger battery. Not only that, but these kits often have displays where you can make adjustments to watts and more. If you like something robust and bulky then sub ohm is the way to go, view some kits here. If you are after something discrete for your pocket or purse, then it isn’t for you.
With a low resistance, you can expect your juices to drain a little faster, but you will find you can bring the nicotine content down a notch at the same time; which is a definite bonus. Operating at 0.5 ohms (Anything less than 1 ohm, is referred to as sub-ohms) you will need to make sure the device you are working with can handle this type of tank - don't start attaching ego batteries; this baby is meant for mechanical mods.
Many of us have two kits. One smaller, mouth to lung device for out and about, then one big cloud sub ohm kit for home and other occasions.
To conclude, sub ohm vaping refers to the resistance of the coil. The lower the resistance the bigger the cloud production. If you are looking for rich and dense clouds with great flavour then this is for you. If you are just after a device to replicate smoking then opt for something more basic with a mouth to lung pull.
