Sub-ohm vaping, also referred to as ‘Sub-ohming’ is the practice of vaping on an e cigarette device whose atomizer coils possess a resistance level of less than one ohm. Anything higher than that is considered to be vaping at regular resistance. Sub-ohming has become very popular amongst some advanced vapers and is currently quite a controversial trend in the Australian and global vaping community.
All e cigarettes are powered by a battery. Sub-ohm vaping employs the principles of Ohm’s and Joule’s laws of electricity. What this means essentially is that a non-variable voltage source such as the battery in a mechanical mod will increase the overall power output of your e cig device when you reduce the resistance (ohms) of your coils.
There are three main reasons why vapers choose to sub-ohm. One benefit which appeals to Sub-ohmers is the ability to blow giant clouds. By utilising coil setup that produces a resistance level of less than one ohm you use much more battery power to spread heat over a larger surface area of e-juice. This means more vapour is produced with each puff and results in those mega clouds that you can witness at cloud chasing competitions.
Another reason why some vapers are attracted to sub-ohming is the warmth. The higher wattage creates extra heat and therefore warmer vapour. If you prefer a warmer vape then you will be likely to enjoy sub-ohm vaping.Sub-ohm vaping also has the potential to release more flavour. Bigger clouds
of vapour means more intense flavour. This a common reason why many vapers start sub-ohming.
It is absolutely essential that Sub-ohm vaping is done safely and only by experienced vapers. If you do not follow the basic safety rules your battery of device could malfunction and cause injury or damage to your property. If you do follow our safety guidelines outlined here below sub-ohm vaping is quite safe.
If like most sub-ohm vapers your aim is to create bigger clouds then you will want to opt for an e-liquid with more vegetable glycerine (VG) than propylene glycol (PG), as VG helps to create more vapour.
A lot of sub-ohm vapers inhale directly into their lungs. VG helps to reduce the throat hit. Due to the increased vapour pull into your lungs, it is a good idea to consider reducing the nicotine level of your ejuice to around 6mg/ml or less.
If you are new to Sub Ohm vaping and are unsure about how to choose the most suitable e cig device, Vaphilia’s Sub Ohm starter kits make it really easy for you to get started. We have a variety of sub ohm device options, including kits that are suitable for the less experienced vapers out there who want to transition from regular resistance vaping to sub-ohm vaping.
