Guide to Sub-Ohm Vaping
Perhaps you have been vaping for years or just started and want to learn more about sub-ohm vaping.
First, sub-ohm vapour is much thicker and way more dense (and more satisfying for some) because the heat to produce that is much higher – thus requiring more battery life and a vaporizer set up that can handle this kind of cloud chucking power.
If you are familiar with the cigarette style e cigs then you will know the vapour production is not huge, just enough to mimic a true tobacco cigarette. These pen-style e cigarettes use more PG in their flavourings and usually require a higher nicotine selection that is equal to what you are used to smoking. Example: B&H are 18mg nicotine, so you vape pen should be the same as far as e-liquid goes.
But with sub ohm vaping you get MORE vapour in your lungs and would need to cut back on the nicotine content, from 18mg to 6mg is an example. The nicotine does add a bite of flavour, so going to 0mg takes time.
To “sub-ohm” you need a device that can handle this like; box mods, single mechanical mods, sub-ohm tanks, using higher VG e liquids.
Shaped like a box… hence the name. 2 batteries are the norm here unless you get the mini version (many styles available). Now, these are also mini computers where you can control the wattage (some you can adjust the ohms) and adjust your vape for flavour and vapour to suit your vaping desire.
This is where the battery and mod is one rechargeable unit. For use with an RDA or sub-ohm tank. Some are able to customize your watts, volts, and ohms like a box mod respectively and some are just simple and easy to go.
These are tanks with larger air holes for full lung hits and house more e juice – because sub ohm vaping is similar to a gas guzzler car! You go through e-liquid much faster and will most likely enjoy every moment of it! Best ones are made of high grade metal and glass, no plastic here.
Batteries & Chargers
Please, take the time to buy the authentic name brand batteries. The 18650 size is most popular. Look for batteries with 30-40 amp (pulse) and at least 2000 mAh capacity. The higher the mAh rating the longer they will last (and take to charge).
Use only chargers made for these types of batteries.
High VG E Liquid
E-liquid in high vegetable glycerine will produce more vapour and are best used for sub-ohm vaping. It is thicker in consistency unlike PG (propylene glycol). Ideally the best to stay between 80VG/20PG for best cloud vapour and flavour.
The ohms will determine what kind of vape you get – the lower the ohm the more vapour but less flavour, etc. Ideally, a .20ohm to .40ohm is great for a full bodied vapour and plenty of flavour. The lower the gauge also determines the outcome, the lower the gauge to hotter the vape.
You can sub ohm and vape huge clouds of vapour with easy to use devices like the “KiK Cloud 30w & 50w Models”.
