Choosing Your First Sub Ohm Vape Kit

Are you in search of bigger, more impressive vape clouds? Do you yearn to fill the room with great plumes of vapour? It could be time to switch to your first ever sub ohm vape kit.

Sub ohm vaping is on the rise, but if you’re new to the idea it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are our top tips on choosing your first sub ohm vape kit.

What is sub ohm vaping?

First up, let’s look at what sub ohm vaping actually is. Sub ohm kits produce bigger clouds than traditional vapes thanks to two things: resistance and airflow.

Let’s get into the science of it for a second...

Pushing electricity through a coil creates resistance, and that resistance is measured in ohms. Therefore, coils with a resistance of less than 1 ohm are termed ‘sub ohm’.

Sub ohm kits are designed to deliver more power without excessive heat, which as a result produces more vapour.

Then there’s airflow. Sub ohm vapes have larger air holes to cool the coil and also the vapour. Most sub ohm kits have adjustable airflow so you can switch between mouth to lung or direct to lung, plus this affects the vapour temperature and flavour intensity.

Should I build my own sub ohm mod?

Back in the day (ok, just a few years ago) intrepid vapers were building their own sub ohm devices from coils and mechanical mods. This is where sub ohming’s less than pristine safety record comes from, since it was more likely things would go wrong when putting together a sub ohm vape kit yourself.

Nowadays it’s easy to pick up a safe, effective sub ohm kit and start using it straight away. Although some vapers still build their sub ohms, for beginners it’s always a good idea to start with the pre-made vape kits. Make sure you always buy from a reputable brand, like those on our site.
