Sub Ohm Vaping: Is It Right For You?

Sub Ohm Vaping: Is It Right For You?

What is sub ohm vaping? Simply put it is vaping on a device with atomizer coils using a resistance of less than one ohm. The reason some advanced vapers prefer sub ohm vaping is to increase the power output of fixed voltage devices to create more vapor or flavor. Although it might sound simple, it’s actually a complex and often controversial topic within the vaping community.

It is absolutely crucial that sub ohm vaping be done safely. As you decrease your resistance you will increase the amperage your device uses to supply the current needed. This increases the strain on the battery and also increases heat that the battery and coils generate. For this reason you must ensure that you never exceed the amperage limit of your battery.

When sub ohm vaping your batteries are the most important part of your vape setup. It is crucial to understand selecting the right battery and using it safely. To ensure safe performance you will want to always make sure you keep your mod clean. This includes all threads, vent holes, contacts, and the switch. If you are not able to monitor their condition, do not use batteries for sub ohm vaping. You may want to invest in a box mod, which is a high power battery pack to enable the best solution to sub ohm vaping.

Typically sub ohm vapers take lung hits which means they inhale straight to their lungs increasing the vapor they can inhale in each puff. People who sub ohm vape usually prefer e liquid with a higher percentage of vegetable glycerin. This is because the vegetable glycerin creates larger clouds and denser vapor production. VG has reduced throat hit compared to PG, which helps to accommodate the increased amount of vapor inhaled. Usually people sub ohm vaping will also use lower nicotine strengths compare to those vaping above 1ohm because of the additional vapor produced and inhaled each pull. If your create your own sub ohm coils make sure to check for hot legs which cause uneven heating and check for shorts in the conductivity between wattage and your coil. The dangers in sub ohm vaping center around user error in building lower ohms than their device and batteries can handle.

Here are the key differences with sub ohm vaping:

  • Creates more heat at the coil which then creates more vapor or “clouds”
  • Provides warmer and more flavorful vapor
  • Will drain the battery faster
  • Uses more eliquid
  • May cause dry hits if used incorrectly
  • May cause premature battery failure if used incorrectly
