Beginners Guide To Sub Ohm VapingThere’s No Place Like Sub-Ohm

An increasing number of sub-ohm tank options are coming to the clearomizer market.

Here, we present a guide to what this means and how you can safely use them.

What Is An Ohm?

Just as electrical current is measured in amps or length measured in meters, the measure of resistance of a coil is in ohms, sometimes seen as the symbol Ω.

Most standard replacement heads for mouth to lung (MTL) vape tanks/clearomizers are between 1.2Ω to 2.0Ω.

The term ‘sub-ohm’ is used when the resistance of a coil measures less than 1 ohm.

The highly popular Aspire Cleito and Innokin iSub G tank offer the option to use a 0.2-0.5Ω replacement head.

Aspire Cleito ReviewInnokin iSub V tank

What Difference Does A Sub-ohm Coil Make?

As the resistance of a coil gets less it allows more electrical current to flow.

Higher current means more energy is getting to the coil, faster. This results in a coil heating up quicker and reaching a higher temperature.

Hotter coils lead to an increase in liquid being vaporized which, when combined with an increased airflow, increases the cloud produced and the flavor.

Mouth to lung or lung inhale?

One issue you might have with a Sub-Ohm tank is that a lot of them require you to make direct to lung (DTL) inhales.

Learn More: Check out our MTL vs DTL guide for more information.

It is strange initially to get used to since when we smoked we all did mouth to lung inhales.

You do get used to it but if you are the kind of person that doesn’t want to inhale hard on a tank then it may not be for you.

There are Sub-Ohm tanks that let you do both so you can choose your own preference.

One such example is the Aspire Triton.

So, I Need A Sub-ohm Tank Then?

No. Most people spend their entire time vaping quite happily in the 1.2-2.0Ω regions with the likes of the Aspire Nautilus 2 and Innokin Endura.

If you are happy with what you have then there’s little reason to change – but you may wish to explore this type of vaping all the same.

Others seek more ‘hit’ from their vape and an increase in the volume of vapor will lead to an increase in nicotine per puff.

Reducing Your Nicotine For Sub Ohm Vaping

If you have been using mouth to lung vape tanks or e cigarettes then you are likely using a higher nicotine content in your e liquid. This could be anywhere from 11mg-24mg.

When sub ohm vaping it’s recommended to reduce the percentage of nicotine that’s in your e juice.

This is for the simple fact that sub ohm vaping provides a bigger ‘hit’ when you vape. If you vape 18mg juice MTL then using this for sub ohm vaping will likely be too strong.

For most, sub ohm vaping with high nicotine will be near on unbearable!

I personally vape at 12mg mouth to lung but when sub ohm vaping I reduce my nicotine to 3mg and on occasion 6mg.

So please, just keep this in mind.

If that is what you are looking for then you can also see what our top choices for sub ohm tank are.

Do I Need A Special Device To Use A Sub-Ohm Atomizer On?

Yes, absolutely.

There are a number of different devices. Mainly falling into the following categories:

Mods that have integrated batteries recharge by plugging in a USB cable. Whichever you decide on you need specific cells that can cope with the current a low-ohm coil allows to flow.

One very important thing we will say is if you are going for a mechanical mod you need to have a sound knowledge of battery safety. Mech Mods are NOT regulated and can be very dangerous if used incorrectly.

With that in mind, if you are new to vaping we recommend sticking to the regulated variety.

Most entry level Vape pens (also known as EGO e cigs) will not be able to handle the stress and older box mods such as the Eleaf 20W and the MVP 2 will just refuse to fire up.

These do not work with coils under 1.0 Ohms. Just be sure to double check what resistance coils the sub ohm tank you go for comes with.

High current can damage battery cells and lead to accidents. It is important to use the correct battery or device.

What Batteries or Mods Can I Use With a Subtank, Cleito or Similar Sub Ohm Tank?

There are simply too many devices on the market now to list them all, but here are some things for you to think about:

Regulated devices (adjustable power)

The first consideration will depend on which size of atomizer you are using. Some people like a flush fitting appearance; others are not too bothered with the atomizer overhanging the mod. The size is usually referred to as diameter with most tanks sitting around 22-23mm.

Many regulated devices will list the lowest ohms they can power – if it doesn’t list it on the mod specification the safest solution is not to use it until you have confirmation it’s safe from the vendor or manufacturer.

All of the main e cig manufacturers produce sub ohm mods. Brands such as Aspire, Innokin, Kangertech and Jacvapour (to name a small selection) are all trusted suppliers that continually produce high quality products. Beginners Guide To Sub Ohm Vaping

Mods using genuine DNA30, DNA40 and SX350 chips in the circuit boards will all be able to handle the demands the atomizers place on them.

Check out our guide and recommended DNA Mods here.

Again, some of the above will only be compatible with 0.5Ohm resistance coils, some will be compatible with resistances down to 0.2 Ohms, some maybe lower.

Just be sure to check the mod and the tank, if buying separately, are compatible.

Mechanical Mods

When using these atomizers on mechanical mods the warning is: do not use cheap or counterfeit cells. The other warning is, know 100% what you are doing!

Most Ebay vendors do not purchase their cells directly from companies and there are many clones about. Avoid all cells that have the word ‘fire’ in the name.

It is worth looking at this video about fake cells on Ebay.

The most common cells used by vapers are the purple range with an Efest label. These cells balance affordability with performance and can perform at 0.5Ω.

Sub Ohm Vaping Guide For Beginners

The universal rule with batteries is: You get what you pay for. We have a separate guide on batteries for sub ohm vaping here

Sub-Ohm Tanks and Temperature Control

One great advantage of Sub-Ohm tanks is that some of them can be fitted with Nickel (Ni200), Titanium (Ti) and some with Stainless Steel coils designed for use with Temperature Control devices.

For many people who really don’t want to mess around making Nickel coils for their RDA’s and RTA’s this makes things extremely convenient.

In my experience so far I have to say that the right Sub-Ohm tank with a Nickel coil gives an absolutely cracking vape but again this isn’t for everyone.

Find out more with our Temperature Control vaping guide.

Possible Drawbacks

So, you are all fired up and want to take your vaping to another level. But, to do it as safely as possible you need to be aware of the following:

If your wick is not wicking juice fast enough it will dry out quickly due to the low ohms, it is vital that a wick remains moist to avoid dry hits.

This is especially important if you begin to build your own coils and wicks in something like a SMOK TFV8, RDA, or other rebuildable tank atomizer.

Dry hits not only taste unpleasant but Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos is currently carrying out a research study investigating what toxins are produced by coils at elevated temperatures.

Lower ohms leads to a faster current running through the circuit, this will run your battery cell down faster – an important consideration if you are wanting an all-day vape for work or leisure.

The growth in the number of online e cig forums and social media groups means that there is always someone out there who knows the answer to your question and is happy to share – us vapers are kind like that.

Happy vaping ☺

  1. I read somewhere that sub-ohm vaping isn’t good for beginners so when I was buying my first vaporizer I didn’t want to buy one with just sub ohm atomizer. So I searched for something that could be switched after some time. After some time I found Vapour 2 and decided to buy it. I don’t regret my decision the Trinity vaporizer came with both “normal” atomizer and sub-ohm atomizer in basic pack so now I can use the sub-ohm one but started with the 1,2 one.

  2. Hi I’m after a bit of advice, I’ve tried so many different vape kits that I’ve lost count, even the apollo and v2 which I hated. I eventually settled with the innokin T18 using v2 platinum congress liquid which I love but my problem is the batteries barely last a few hours, that’s with new ones too. I’ve been trying to cut down the nicotine levels but now I’m down to 1.2 I think I’m using the vape more. Not sure. I’ve read so many conflicting reviews about what the best one for me would be. I don’t want a mod as I doubt I’d be experienced enough to use it but I need a vape easy to use like innokin t 18 but with a longer battery life. I’m also finding the v2 eliquids expensive and lately I’m going through them really quickly so if anyone could recommend an alternative to try I’d appreciate it.

    • Hi Karen, Thanks for getting in touch.

      The battery life is always going to be a bit of a problem with the smaller devices (and vape pen style devices) especially if you vape a lot.

      One option, especially if you are happy with the T18, is to have a second device or spare T18 battery so you can rotate, although not sure if the batteries are sold seperately.

      Other options are the Endura T22 – Uses same tank as the T18 but has double the battery capacity while still keeping a small form factor. It works the same way the T18 does, just press the button and vape.

      I know you said you aren’t sure on a box mod… But.. they are very easy to use. Simply set your wattage. Once you have done this you don’t need to do anything but press the button and vape.

      Good options for these that have improved battery while keeping a smaller form factor (of course bigger capacity mods are available):
      Apsire Zelos
      Wismec RX Mini

      As for better value e-liquids, there are a few options but as always taste is subjective and they will likely not be like Congress, what you are used to.
      Halo Vapour
      Jacvapour PicNic range – These allow for 50ml of e-liquid for around £13.99 but a little extra work is involved as you can see from the review. Again easy to do though.

      Hope that helps a little. Any other questions please ask.

      Thanks Jonny

  3. This site had been an real help cause you can never learn enough.

    I’m pre retirement cause of psychiatric disorders can go 6 days work without sleep then sleep for one day and have it so for a couple of months. Have gone thru the whole medical bunch Sweden can give or even eat 2 medications that doesn’t exist officially and only a couple of people in Sweden eats it maybe 2-300 persons it’s Dane medecine add the old dexedrine but with an new name i eat around 14 pills of those every day when i need to socialize.

    And have swedens worst diabetes over 15 years with so high bloodsuger so the meters at the hospitals or my own couldn’t show more than HI so i had an sugar addiction worst the doctors seen. As complications from having so high blood sugar from 13y old and im soon 33y or 34 in November “my memory literary fried from electrics shots from medical coma 10 years ago and took ect 7 days a week for 2 months and they did do anafranil drip at the same time as they pumped me with medicine that i found out 4 years ago that all that mixture was a no no but i was so depressed heard from Swedens leading professor om Umeå university hospital top 1 hospital in Sweden for many years now, but she said dissent we fix so you got atleast ⅓ of the levels you got now you will get blind and need to amputate toes foot maybe under leg/s and i had to go ambulance sometimes 2 times a week and my own big city hospital said they couldn’t threat me.

    And after that everytime o had to go ambulance for the stong ph in the body vomited nearly acid or read the same every time the chief doctor where i was laid in to the doctors always did you know this is serious you may not fix one month more.

    Really bad sight and i need to rest the strongest poison killers they have here every morning when i need a bathroom break but need to wait half hour just to stand on my legs. But anyways sugar addiction yeah sorry have very much adhd dyslexia and why i write so messy is cause i got writing curse thru my Autism spectrum syndrome or takes mostly my writing and talking cause i stuttre and ect treatment may have given me pre time dementia is very rare but they call it for now debris alike symptoms according memory that get worse.

    But easy 140 pills a week and they don’t want me to over eat. Cause i have been an advanced mix drug addict needles and it all, and if i didnt find one particular woman that said i do anything to help you she did throw away a good school in England for i have been forced jail or rehab 4 months before i had green skin that i didnt care for and see her eyes when i had one of my epeleptic seizures i felt something.

    I’ve had had an rough life duct up family my friends was the one helped me to grown up to handle things my self. had loaded pistol against my head by an crazy person that had taken to much speed and was really i don’t know… Been stabbed too. 2 heart stops stopped breathing a couple of times and i thought i was invincible cause i got the name Nikki Sixx of”then my city’s name” but i didnt take drugs cause of fun it was to cope work all i jag ro live sök all doctors said i would be dead at 30y old.

    I have had lymfoma cancer so treatment for that for one year was rough but i found out Dane day my then living with gf days she is leaving me and go to work as an hair cutter in some ski place in Hemavan and before that i found out after 5 years of working doing computer work and database making one of my departments paperless and made so right scale printings could be paid thru internet. But they said we must leave the 2 newest Co workers cause can only keep one and your main project is working flawless.

    then i got an mail that was for my boss from the economy chick that was sent earlier that day and if they had kept me 1 day now and no notice that i had to be fired i had been LAS that in Sweden meant that they had to keep me.

    And i jag bor much of a family as i said before but now back to vaping.

    I couldn’t get my sugar levels go down other goes to the hospital when they have an level over 17mmo/L i read often over 28-35+(40-55) when i got down to 20 my body reacted like I’m going in to an insulin coma got an pulse around 160bpm and my body just needed to rest candy sugar food I’m under weight but i ate 3 lunches 4 dinners and ate SONETHING all the time.

    But when i started vaping 2015 it someway fooled my bloodsuger when i was vaping sweet ejuices and it filled my body and my mind cause before getting most bloodsuger was harder than what I’m now am for 8 years I’ve been drugfree or 7.5 we Jag to move to the other side of the country so old friends didnt toss pills at me or leave them out in my mail box so i sold my apartment cheap gave away my car and 6 days after I’ve moved to the first place i could find that had an University cause then my wife was studying to be an attorney but she changed and is getting the highest level of psycosis nurse much about drug patients she wants to work with.

    But what i want to say i love your site in trying to figure out the perfect mod for my wife she loves small but on my dna200 she loved subohm ss316l dual fused clapton wires on an Griffin 25.

    I’ve been thru 12 mods with her and maybe the same amount of own atomizers i bought to her. And i got so lite income this site is really helping me find what i want to save maybe an half year of our should be an small dna 60/75 mod or something else she is soft vaping on an new bo vaping those pods work awesome but i want her to have an really great variable mod with easy if it’s an dna i could just set in the right profiles for her but i don’t know how good the other chipsets are and in Sweden everything is so costly.

    My latest but the minkin 2 is really nice but could be to hard for her and it’s too heavy and costly. But i will follow your site every day now she is going on 75 percent tobacco cigarettes and 25 percent vaping she is mixing between my cheap bought smok quantum for 18 dollars pink and the Mello 3 mini she got when i bought her an Pico 75w pink.

    I really want small good temp control with ss316l that i love my self i can put in the settings on ramp up time and curves and such just if the mod saves. But now I’ve written to much but if i save money for an half year to an year i couldn’t pay my bills and loans any money with so low income and 2 months ago the state takes 60 percent of my pension income i have.

    if i don’t but Netflix or ejuice stuff diy that’s costs 8 tines more here and they don’t have much and can’t find who delivers like cap or FA cause nicotine is cheap. So it certainly will comes to saving anyhow.

    Cause she saved my life if i didn’t get my self to rehab my liver 1 month later would had gave up. they didnt know if my liver would survive but i got lucky i don’t drink i don’t do drugs just money go to cheap lousy essences from molin berry wish i could use wizzy and get my favourite ejuices to buy from someone or the ingridiens to make like fun fetti and sweet stuff cause essences don’t go on the tax and i would pay the person for sound ingridiens or ESSENCE without nicotine just to add nicotine vg or pg my self.

    But i almost know no body. Vaping is my hobby. But i want to save my wife from cancer or the thing Smokey’s gets called kol in Sweden that’s when they are doing just get harder to breath cause of cigarettes. Sorry for so hard work but just want people to know i didn’t just quit SNUS and cigarettes the first day i vaped i got my DIABETES back to ok values for first time in my life.

    Just wanna say thanks for an awesome web site will check every day i don’t have to much stuff pain. AND I UNDERSTAND IF IT’S WRITTEN SO HARD SO NO ONE UNDERSTAND SORRY MY WIFE IT’S AT A FRIEND SHE OFTEN WIRES MY BLOG AND ALL SOCIALIZE CONTACT. BUT BEEN MOVE TO LIGHTEN UP from my chest a litle. Keep up what you all doing. You have my dream job. If you need any reviewers or just member reviews my wife is from England and is a grade a student and would love to cut my text and write it perfect for dslr camera and can record 4k 😇😇 have a great week folks

  4. been on an eleaf 20w mod with an aspire nautilus tank vaping 12mg nicotine for 3 weeks. great little thing, lovely vape and never craved a cigarette once… decided I wanted a bigger hit so done a lot of research on sub ohm vaping I didn’t want to go straight into the higher end devices so looked at mid range devices.

    Decided on the innokin cool fire 4 plus 70w then decided I wanted a spare tank and something I could use further down the line in case I got a bigger mod so after reading a lot of reviews decided on a aspire cleito exo tank with the 0.4 coils these coils was perfect for me rather than the 0.16 coils as the recommended wattage use 40-60 so would be ideal for my mod.. as for juice I took some advice from my local vape shop and bought some asap grape nasty juice 3mg nicotine put it all together set the watts smack in the middle of the recommended wattage and wow what a hit!

    flavour and vapour is amazing and mod is good quality build I can’t stop puffing on the dam thing!!!! if I still get a cigarette craving iv always got my eleaf to turn too but at the minute I can’t see me doing it but early days yet…

    • Good to hear you are keeping off the cigs! I tried the Nasty Juice range as well for the first time the other week, a couple of really good flavours there!

      Even though the 3mg is a lot lower, the increased heat you are vaping at on the Cool Fire/EXO helps deliver the nicotine as if it was a stronger nic strength.

      Keep us updated on how you get on.

  5. Hello..
    I’m new to sub-ohm vaping (vaping is new to me actually).. There are some concern.. I’m using serpent mini rta tanks with average 0.7ohms.. With ipvs4 mod..
    The prob i’m having is my cotton burned quite often and i got this burn sensation which i hate..
    I also have this popping and spitting prob.. Looking forward for some advice.. My setting most of the time for 0.7ohms is 19-21W.. 70vg/30pg juice..

    Thanks
    Khai

    • Hey Khai,

      So you’ve jumped straight into rebuildables! While there is nothing wrong with that these type of devices are generally classed as more advanced.

      The thing with rebuilable devices such as these is that there are different ways of wicking to get the best results and to get the best from a device.

      For your device specifically I would recommend checking out some of the reviews on YouTube here to see how they set things up

      Burning cotton can be down to a number of things:

      Not letting the cotton soak up juice for long enough before vaping.
      Chain vaping – (Again, not giving the juice enough time to soak through the cotton between vapes)

      Once a cotton is burnt it can’t be saved. The burnt taste can also carry over to the juice you have left in the tank, so this may also need to be emptied and replaced.

      Check out this guide for some help on spitting/burning problems. It’s mainly for standard tanks but some may apply to RTA use.

      Thanks

  6. Hey there! I just got a Sigelei Swallowtail and am using 0.5 ohm coil. I’m having a hard time finding my “sweet spot,” I don’t know what all the settings do lol. I had a kangertech before, 0.5 ohm and normally on like 20 W. but when I do 20 W in this one it shows the ohm as over 0.5. Help! I don’t know where to even start lol. Thanks!

    • Hey Chelsea!

      haha… We’ve all been there!

      The Swallow Tail looks beautiful by the way! Good choice.

      The ohm readings from coils can have a little variance so unless they are well out then don’t worry about that too much.

      You don’t need to worry about all the different settings. The only one you need to use at the moment to get you up and running is the wattage functionality.

      The best thing to do to find your sweet spot is to simply work your way up the wattage on the mod, 0.5 or 1W at a time. I normally start low and work my way up a little at a time.

      It does happen where different mods may need a little more/less wattage so don’t worry if the wattage is higher than what you’re used to.

      It’s just about finding the right spot for you.

      Have a go Chelsea and let me know how you get on.

      Thanks

  7. Hi. I have king baby i put tfv12 x4 coil and attached the atomizer on therion 166 and cks icon 200 both gives me .32 ohms instead of .16 labeled on the coil. Is that OK. Help me to understand . thanks

    • Hi Ahmed,

      There can sometimes be a slight difference on the resistance reading and what it says ‘on the tin’ so to speak. The difference shouldn’t be anything to worry about with that particular coil.

      Resistances can also change somewhat when the coil is heated.

      Have you tried any other coils? Do they read closer to the rated ohms?

      Also, be worth cleaning the connections fully on the tank and mod.

  8. Hi Johnny,

    Newbie here. I’m planning to get a sigelei 213 plus and a uwell crown 3/ uwell rafale or kanger protank 4. Which tank do you suggest for better coil life and budget. I’m currently using a predator 228 with the elabo tank.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Hunais,

      The Uwell Crown 3 is the latest of the tanks and while we have this in the queue for review it is looking as if it’s a very good tank. So, out of the three you have mentioned I would personally go for this.

      Thanks

      Jonny

  9. Hello Johnny i just bought a new eleaf pico mini with melo 3 this is my first box mod. There are 2 coils 0.3 and 0.5 i found in my box now im using 0.3coil watt mode 30w with sony 1-vtc5 battery because of coil labelled use between 30-80w for example can i use my mod 20w? Or can i go high +50w to find my sweetspot thanks

    • Hey Serdar,

      Yeah for sure you can go to any wattage you want.

      As always with any tank/coil/mod combo I recommend starting low (20W if you want) and work your way up until you find your sweet spot.

      This may change depending on the type of juice and flavour you are using so you may need to have a play with the wattage settings for each new flavour.

      Any other question you have on this or anything else please let me know!

      Cheers

      Jonny

  10. Hi Jonny, I would really be grateful for some advice please. I am very stuck and confused. I want to stop smoking and start vaping properly but I just don’t know what to buy. I have been using e-cigarette’s but there is not enough vapour or nicotine throat hit. I have bought a pen which I didn’t like and then x2 sub-ohm’s, which I have found too harsh on my throat and chest and if I turn them down I don’t get any vapour!! I would like vapour and nicotine. Please can you help me, I’ve done research and can’t find any more information to help and don’t want to keep spending money for nothing!! Thank you so much.

    • Hi Samantha,

      Thanks for getting in touch! I’ll try and help where I can, of course if you want any clarification on any of the below please ask.

      What e-liquid (nicotine strength and PG/VG ratio) are you using?

      Just a quick note, the reason your sub ohm vape will be too harsh will be due to one or both of the following:
      Nicotine % too high – Higher nicotine helps with a stronger throat hit, especially so with sub ohm coils. Sub ohm coils require a lower nicotine content than a standard vape pen style device as the coils are powered by more heat. You will still get a good nicotine hit though. Recommended nic level 3mg/6mg.
      PG % too high. PG can be a touch harsher on the throat as well, especially with sub ohm coils. Same reason above. It is recommended to use a higher VG% e liquid which provides a smoother vape. Say 60VG/40PG juice as an example.

      So, with the above in mind, you may not need to buy a new device. If I were you I would just try a lower nicotine strength or possibly a combination of lower nicotine and higher VG. Try the former first, could save you a lot of money.

      I know it sounds counter intuitive to recommend a lower nic strength but you will still get a good ‘hit’.

      It’s difficult recommending a specific product as your wants may be different and I don’t know what you have used previously.

      But I will recommend a couple of devices/kits that give you a similar smoking experience.

      Innokin Endura T18 or Endura T22
      Aspire K3 Kit

      The above kits are all ‘Plus-Ohm’ kits. So all coils above 1.2Ohm that are a closer match to the cigarette smoking sensation. It’s recommended to use a juice upto 50/50 VG/PG for these.

      There are recommended box mods here.

      Or if you can be more specific in terms of size, vaping style (clouds, more of a cigarette smoking experience) I will try and narrow down. Let me know the make and models of what you have used and are currently using.

      But..Not to sound like a broken record! Try a different juice or different nicotine strength first 🙂

      Thanks and hope it helps a little.

      It can be a pain at first finding something that works for you. Once you have that device though you will be good to go. So be patient, it’s worth the wait! We will help you get sorted.

      Cheers

      Jonny

  11. Hi , i have just bought the coolfire plus TC100 but i`m not that pleased with the v tank that it came with , i also have a coolfire plus with the isub Apex 3ml tank on which seams to produce alot more flavour and vape than the v tank does . i have tried all the different settings i can on the TC100 , the best i`ve found is using it with the SS BVC 316L 0.5ohm coil set at 45watts and 430 F in the ramp up setting , but still not as good a flavour as tha Apex . Does anybody know if i can use the Apex tank with the TC100 if i buy one , or any other good compatible tanks to use with the Coolfire TC100 ????

  12. I’ve got an evod mega and have just bought a subtank nano , will I be able to use this with the 1.2ohm coil? Thanks in advance

  13. Hi there I have the kangertech evod mega and was wondering if it fires isub tanks or other sub ohms tanks add I world like to mix up lung to mouth and straight to lung inhaling the evod mega battery is 1900mah..
    Cheers

    • Hey Ade,

      Thanks for dropping by.

      The Kanger Evod Mega won’t work with sub ohm tanks. These tanks have coils that are below 1.0Ohm resistance that the Evod isn’t compatible with unfortunately.

      There are some great sub ohm vape pens that have just hit the market that are friendly on the pocket if you are open to a separate device.

      Check out the SMOK Vape Pen 22, provides great flavour and performance. Think it’s only around £22 delivered.

      If you go sub ohm it’s a good idea (depending on the nicotine strength e liquid you use) to drop the strength t0 3mg or 6mg.

      Any other questions on the above please ask.

      Cheers

      Jonny

  14. hello, I just purchased a smok osub 40w kit and was wondering if I can put my kangertech subvod tank on to my smok mod without it blowing up or damaging it?

  15. Sub ohm vaping is definitely where it’s at! The flavor of the eliquid pops, it’s just perfect! When I started sub ohm vaping I thought to myself where has this been my whole life and why didn’t I know about this sooner!

  16. Hi

    I’m new to this Vaping and just got myself a Smok OSUB 40W kit.

    I’ve been told that you have to use a Certain Mix/Strength of juice depending on the Coil being used.

    The Coils I have with the kit are a 0.4 Fused Clapton Dual Core and a .1 Single Clapton Core.

    Can someone advise what strength juice would be suitable.

    Tony

    • Hey Anthony,
       
      When sub ohm vaping (coils below 1.0 Ohm) then it is recommended to drop your nicotine level. As you haven’t vaped before then I can see why this must be difficult 🙂
       
      Is the single Clapton 0.1 or 1.0 Ohm? I think it’s the latter, I was just using the SMOK Osub kit last week.
       
      I personally vape 3mg nic strength at 0.4/0.5. And I used 3mg/6mg with the 1.0 Ohm coil. And I use a mix of e-liquid with a 60VG / 40PG mix. You will be OK with 50/50 – 70VG/30PG though.
       
      As you are new to vaping then it will be a case of experimenting with 2 or 3 nicotine strengths.
       
      With 3mg, you will be able to use this with both of your coil options no problem.
       
      With 6mg, you will likely be able to use this with both coils, although it *could* be on the strong side with the 0.4 coil.
       
      With the 1.0Ohm coil you may well need 12mg nicotine strength to be satisfied.
       
      Again, Anthony, it’s a personal preference and the only way you will really know it to try a few juices out. Don’t mean to sound too vague but it all comes down to personal preference. What is good for one may not be for another.
       
      If you start on the 3mg and 6mg though you can always work it from there.
       
      Anything else let me know. Be interesting to hear how you get on as well!
       
      Cheers

  17. Can I use a 1.0 ohm coil with an Isub tank and a cool fire iv I want to go out and buy a pack or a couple 1.0 coils
    thanks Josh

  18. Sub-ohm builds often let users to enjoy much more flavor than customary clearomizers. As the vapor is exceptionally thick, it is possible to taste more of your premium e-liquid with each hit. And, in combination with organic cotton wicking material, sub-ohm coils can provide a vape with a very intense and clear taste.
