The Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank is up for review today, a sleek feat of German craftsmanship, designed for convenience and flavour and with no shortage of good looks!
This is my first review of VapeFly’s gear and I’ll tell you straight up, I’m impressed!
Vapefly is a Chinese vape brand with a German division (German 103), headed by YouTube’s dampfwolke7 and taking much of it’s inspiration from the constructive feedback and ideas of Germany’s thriving vaper community.
Incidentally, the name Kriemhild comes from a Germanic legend – shes the sister of three Burgundian kings – the things you learn through vaping!
Let’s get this show on the road and see if this is indeed a legendary vape…

Design and Build Quality
Not knowing what to expect from Vapefly, I opened up the neat, black, box packaging in anticipation, and I instantaneously wanted to snog this gorgeous looking sub-ohm tank!!!
I was lucky enough to receive the gunmetal version but there are 4 slick color options available, of which I think the gunmetal and the black/gold are amazeballs.
This tank gives the appearance of an RTA, due to it’s high profile and the fact that 60% of the tank is metal covered, with a narrow band of glass on the lower portion.
Closer inspection reveals that it’s not, however, as the coil-housing is visible through the glass, obviously that top section is all juice chamber and chimney.
The tank has a hybrid style, gold plated connection below, with a tall, adjustable airflow and base ring above that. The tank is 100% SS, glass and Delrin (for the drip-tip), with, in my case, a gunmetal finish.
The base ring has 6 knurling grooves, which are beautifully engraved, adding the look of quality.
The airflow slots are massive, 15 x 2.1 mm, one either side and adjustment takes a bit of pressure but is also very smooth, as all metal is beautifully machined.
Above the base ring is a fixed ring, same color, half the height of the base.
Above that a beefy o-ring is visible, through that narrow, replaceable glass section I mentioned earlier.
The coil head is not directly visible but it can be seen through 4 large windows in the housing.
Above this is a tall metal section, engraved with a stylish Kriemhild logo, which has a small upward pointing arrow above that, to indicate in which direction to lift and slide the top cap, which opens up for filling.
The sexy, dome shaped top cap rises above that, consisting of a base ring with decorative dot engravings all around it, two heat sinks above that, running round the circumference.
Finally, the top cap curves smoothly into the removable Delrin 810 drip tip, with o-rings on the drip tip and the top cap itself.
It is exquisite looking and feels heavy, like a million bucks to be honest.
Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank Top Fill
Grip the top cap and lift to unlock, then slide sideways in the direction of the arrow above the logo, a huge fill port is revealed.
The mechanism has a great, tight springy feel when you lift it, with lift/click-down action providing a secure seal for you tank when you shut it.
Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank Coil Change
Oh Lord, this has made my year!
I freaking love the design of this tank, it’s so incredibly convenient.
Unscrew the base of the tank, ie: the airflow ring section.
You now see the lower part of the coil head sticking out from the bottom of the tank – pull it, there is no need to unscrew. To my delight, a mechanism releases SS shutters over all the coil chamber windows.
Meaning, you can replace your coil head in a couple of smooth moves, even when you have just filled your tank!!!!
This is such a treat.
The threading between the base and tank can be tricky to align at first, however…once aligned it is smooth as can be.
Be careful that you do get it aligned right, which will seal on the base so that no space or o-ring is visible between base and tank.
I’ve missed the alignment once or twice when refitting the base, resulting in a failed contact and a no-atomizer reading.
This threading seems to be the one place where machining is less than perfect but, to be fair, only marginally so and most of the time it screws on smoothly.
How Does The Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank Perform?
Besides the much appreciated top-fill and coil-change features, this tank does exactly what it’s supposed to!
I do find the vape a little on the loud side, with that almost whistling but not quite whistling feel – that doesn’t bother me whatsoever, though it may bother the person sitting next to me.
Besides that almost whistle, the airflow has an incredible range on this tank, although I only use it half way to about a 3/4 shut, since the more open range is just too damn much.
Airflow is also incredibly smooth, besides the almost-whistle, and if you like a restricted vape, you get a very satisfying restricted feel at those lower settings.
While this tank does get hot during chain vaping, I’ve found those heat sinks really effective in stopping the heat before it reaches your lips which, in my case, occasionally engulf more of the drip tip than is sanitary.
I can’t rave enough about how convenient and slick this tank is and I really have nothing bad to say about it.
I did have a bit of trouble finding mods in my collection which looked good with such a high profile tank – all the more reason, if you ask me, for admins to be sweet and send me the Kriemhild mod to match, to be subtle.
Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank 0.15Ohm Triple Mesh Coil
This is the pre-installed coil on this tank, Ni chrome and recommended for 50-80W vaping.
I have to say that, for me, this coil should have been recommended for 65-80W, as it only comes into it’s own through it’s uppermost range.
This is a beautiful coil, smooth vaping with massive vapour production and delicious, mouth watering flavour. It provides a scrumptious, warm vape at 80W, with the airflow 1/2 way open.
I vaped on it for a week at 80W, using a heavily flavoured, high VG juice and I needed to extract and rinse the hell out of the coil head at that point, as its had become a little toasty tasting.
However, keep in mind that I vape myself stupid most of the time and this doesn’t mean you won’t get a good 2-3 weeks out of this coil head, before renewing for a little longer with a thorough rinse.
I, for one, will be ordering a value-pack of these coil heads as the flavour is awesome and I need to keep using this tank!
Vapefly Kriemhild SubOhm Tank 0.2Ohm Single Mesh TWE Coil
This is the spare coil in the pack, Ni chrome and recommended for the same 50-80W range.
I insist on using this coil head at 80W, as I find the flavour to be considerably lower than the triple, which I’d become quite fond of using.
With that said, flavour is not bad at all at 80W, still well above the average but, as this coil head allows more air through, you will need to dial your airflow down very low indeed in order to achieve the flavour the other coil achieves at 60W.
- Beautiful build and machining
- Convenient top fill
- Convenient coil-change design
- Ravishing good looks
- Massive airflow
- Great Vapour Production
- Kickass flavour
- Base threading can be a bit sticky
- High profile looks funny with most mods
- Not the best lifespan from coil heads, though the reviewer is a heavy vaper
Final Review Verdict
Oh c’mon now, what’s not to love?!
The Vapefly Kriemhild Sub Ohm Tank is a surefire winner, if you’re looking for a flavorful vape, a slick profile and incredible top fill and coil-change convenience.
I highly recommended it to both beginner and experienced sub-ohm vapers as ease-of-use is off the charts on this one – enjoy!
