Choosing the Sub-Ohm Vaping Lifestyle

Choosing the Sub-Ohm Vaping Lifestyle


As days go by, more people are embracing vaping all over the world. Sub-ohming is also becoming somewhat popular to vapers. Sub-ohm vaping, also commonly referred to as sub-ohming, is vaping using a device (a sub-ohm compatible MOD) that has atomizer coils that have a resistance of less than 1ohm. If vaping is done with a device whose atomizer coils are more than 1ohm, it is just considered a regular style of vaping.

Vapers that have experience choose to sub-ohm vape to get larger and bulkier clouds when vaping. They also engage in this type of vaping to get better flavors. Vapers also use this type of vaping because it uses less nicotine than the traditional style. This is useful for vapers who are aiming to reduce their nicotine levels and still stay away from the symptoms of withdrawal. Experienced vapers also opt for this type of vaping as it produces warmer vapor for the lungs.

During sub-ohming, there is a lower resistance that is required, meaning that a thicker coil should be used. When a thicker coil is used, more power is required to heat up the coil. Since the wire is thicker, the surface area encountering the wick is bigger. The increased contact with the wick enables more vaporization of the e-liquid to take place and therefore more vapor is produced.

This type of vaping requires very particular devices, that is, the type of device selected should be able to accommodate the low resistance associated with this type of vaping. The MOD chosen must be equipped with a battery that accommodates the demands of the coil. An IMR battery with a 15-30A rating will be the most ideal as it keeps high discharging capacities and the chemical makeup is safer. This ensures that the battery does not overheat, especially to an extent of exploding as you vape. The MOD should also be well ventilated for it to allow for maximum airflow and the escape of gases.

Another important factor is the type of e-liquid to use and the vape tank to put it in. The e-liquid should have a high content of VG. The VG assists in making the vapor smooth, bulkier, and thicker while lessening the harshness of the throat hit. The vape tanks for sub-ohming ought to have coils that can handle low resistance. The tank chosen should also accommodate the amount of vapor produced while vaping. They generally have more air spaces compared to the other types of tanks out there.

Other means apart from the tank which can be used to maximize your sub-ohming experiences are Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs), Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs), and Rebuildable Drip Tank Atomizers (RDTAs). Sub-ohming is considered a bit complex and any vaper needs to fully understand how to go about it and how to exercise caution before taking it up. There is no specific time for one to begin sub-ohming really, but it is advised that at least you have a sufficient amount of experience and knowledge when it comes to vaping in general. This way, you will be able to adjust and practice safe sub-ohming, which then will allow you to get better and enjoy the experience.
