Sub-ohm vaping has become quite popular nowadays. Vapers are keen to learn more about it, ohm’s law stresses that all electricity should be taken seriously. In order to protect yourself from any harm that electricity can cause to you, you should always practice safe vaping.
Previous atomizers and clearomizers were in the range of 1.5-2.8 ohms. Sub-ohm mods employ atomizer coils that produce resistance of less than 1.0 ohm produce huge clouds and intensified flavor. Non-variable voltage sources such as a battery tend to produce more wattage by reducing the resistance of a circuit.
Earlier vapers had to utilize rebuildable atomizers to create their own sub-ohm coils from wicking materials like kanthal wire or cotton creating unregulated mods that use an 18650 battery for power and heating the atomizer coil. These days, sub-ohm tanks and regulated box mods are used in place of self builds. Regulated mods have new safety restrictions which prevent them from firing an atomizer at too low of a level of resistance.
These three sub-ohm vaping methods are in use:
1. Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RBA, RTA):
Vapers can build their own coils without dripping. An RBA is a kind of clearomizer. The user has to build the coil(s) inside. Vapers using RBA can custom design any coil they want and thus produce a unique vaping experience. Not all RBAs are meant for sub-ohm vaping. Some among them do not contain airflow controls and insulation necessary for sub-ohm vaping which allows the RTA to produce very hot vapor that can burn your lips.
2. Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDA):
Older model sub-ohm RDA tanks (drippers) used to be the only way of creating a sub-ohm experience. They were used with the mechanical or box mods. Drippers are generally smaller than tank atomizers. E-juice is dripped onto the coil and wick and then re-dripped after every few puffs.
3. The Sub-Ohm Experience:
Sub-Ohm vaping is similar to RBA vaping but employs manufactured disposable coils. Such sub-ohm tanks do exist which feature optional RBA heads. Vapers can either use prebuilt coils or build their own. This technology is just the same for the newer mods.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Sub-Ohm Vaping:
Everything has its pros and cons. Pros for sub-ohm vaping include hotter vapor, bigger clouds and intensified flavor. The RDAs, RBAs and sub-ohm tanks have airflow controls which cool the e-juice. This helps to prevent injury. The e-juices burn hotter, but they also taste richer, fuller and are more intense and thus lead to a more satisfying vape experience.
Another negative associated with sub-ohm vaping is the powerful mouth-to-lung hit, although, some vapers love the added kick. Another possible negative that you may experience is sneaking a vape break at work. Large clouds of vapor are hard to hide. Moreover sub-ohm tanks require more e-juice which makes vaping more expensive.
Newer sub-ohm tanks are reliable and safe. People who are new to vaping should acquire knowledge about what they are doing before they begin vaping. More power calls for exercising caution.
