Sub Ohm Vaping Guide for 2017
This guide will give you a basic run down of sub ohm vaping. It will also give insight into what tanks to use to get the best experience with sub ohm vaping. When talking about sub ohm vaping, in technical terms you have an atomizer coil that has resistance less than 1 ohm.
This is what gives us the name and term sub ohm when talking about this type of vaping. This is the more technological way to explain what sub ohm vaping is, but it does not really explain what it means. When actually explaining what sub ohm vaping entails for the user, you will find that you get better taste, a ton of vapor, and vapor that typically comes out a little warmer. If you are someone that is a cloud chaser, you might be interested in trying out sub ohm vaping.
If you are just beginning to sub ohm vape, you want to purchase a tank that has a prebuilt atomizer. Some people do prefer to build their own coil themselves to be able to truly customize the experience, but this is for more advanced vapers. Until you know that you prefer sub ohm vaping, I would recommend just purchasing one and not going through the effort and hazard of making your own. Remember the tank that you do purchase needs to have a mod that is able to provide sub ohm vaping.
An important aspect to consider is safety. Many people have avoided sub ohm vaping because of the risks involved with vaping in this manner. In the past only more knowledgeable vapers would be able to use sub ohm vaping with less worry of dangers that come with it. When you sub ohm vape, you should have a good perception of how watts, volts, and ohms work together in a device to avoid damaging your device's batteries. Even more important than the annoyance of destroying your device's batteries is that you could damage them to the point they may leak gas, start on fire, or even explode. This could potentially seriously harm you and anyone around you.
Now there is a better alternative for those that do not understand the relationship between volts, ohms, and watts. You can use box mods that are built to be used with sub ohm vaping without concern over damaging the components. The prebuilt boxes and mods will not need altering from you and are a safer alternative to the older models people used. Any user with these devices do need to remember that type of battery is compatible for their device and with sub ohm vaping. This will make sure these devices are safe as possible.
Recommended Sub Ohm Tanks
Uwell Crown 2 Subtank
This tank is made to last a long time without any damage. Its body is made from stainless steel and it has a quartz glass tank. This tank is going to give you the ability to set the airflow to your liking and you will get very large clouds of vapor. The goal of this tank is to challenge the RDAs that are on the market. RDAs are rebuildable dripper atomizers.
When you purchase this tank you are going to have a preinstalled 0.15 ohm Ni-200 TC Dual Coil that is fitted with an organic cotton wick. If you prefer a different coil you can choose from two prebuilt coils that come with this unit. There is a 0.5 ohm and a 0.25 ohm dual coil that both come with organic cotton wicks as well.
One thing I don't like about this subohm tank is that you can't vape comfortably at 80W (single coil: 0.5/1.2) or 120W (dual coil: .25/.5)
You can avoid refilling this tank because it is able to hold about 4mls of your material. This is going to give you plenty of time to produce a large amount of vapor before refilling. Once you do need to refill this device, there is a choice to use a bottom filling method or a top filling method. You will not need to worry about vapor that is too hot because of its progressive cooling method. There is also a replacement glass tube that comes with this device.
Smok TFV8 Cloud Beast Tank
The TF-V8 Beast is a more powerful version of Smok’s TF-V4. Although not noticeably larger on the outside, TFV8 can carry bigger coils with a greater 6ml capacity tank.
The TFV8 comes with three different turbo coils – the V8-Q4 (a four head atomizer rated at 0.15 Ohms), the V8-T8 (a 0.15 Ohm eight head atomizer), and the V8 RBA which has two in-built Claptons.
Designed to work at high wattage with these coils, the Beast has highly adjustable airflows. It offers a mild and cool vape even at temperatures of 120 – 140W. The RBA base is ideal for use between 60-100W with the pre-built Clapton coils which should last for a couple of months (with regular dry burning and re-wicking).
At 70mm tall and weighing about 75g, the TFV8 has a glass and stainless steel build. It features a top filling swivelling mechanism.
Months of research and development has given the TFV8 one of the most smooth and delicious sub ohm vaping experiences on the market. It is ideal for cloud chasers who like to fill a room with lots of cloud vapor.
The Beast comes in range of seven colors including gold, stainless steel, black, blue, greem red and purple.
The kit also includes extra seals, vape bands and O-rings, a spare Pyrex glass tube, and a pouch of cotton. Plus, of course, a user manual.

This device is used for sub ohm vaping because it is compatible with atomizers that have extremely low resistance. You are able to use atomizers that go as low as 0.15 ohms. A benefit of purchasing this specific device is that it comes with many safety features. There is a security measure against overheating and an advanced temperature alarm.
