Everything You Need to Know about Sub-Ohm Vaping

If it hasn’t been a while since you stepped into the world of vaping and you are just finding out about various types of e-cigs, atomizers and e-juices then it very likely that you would have come across the term “sub-ohm vaping”. A lot of beginners, when hearing the term for the first time, turn to the internet to find out what it actually is, why it is so popular in the vaping community, and if they are missing out on an experience related to the activity that they cherish. One major concern on the other hand usually is if the activity is safe in terms of personal health and the safety of the vaping device that you’re using.

Like another other activity that is hyped has something frowned upon, we would suggest that you ignore the controversy surrounding this act, backed up by no logical or experimental claims. If are interested and curious about the act then below is everything you would need to know about sub-ohm vaping.

What is Sub-Ohm Vaping?

Sub-ohm vaping is basically vaping with the help of an e-cig device that offers an atomizer resistance under one ohm. Ohms represent the electrical resistance of a circuit. In regular e-cigs, atomizer resistance is usually ranging between 1.5 to 3 ohms. The degree of electrical resistance offered or ohms required by the atomizer coils of an electronic cigarette or vaporizer highly influence the flavor and texture of an e-liquid. Lower the atomizer resistance, more enhance will be your vaping experience in terms of flavor. When the resistance of atomizer coils is decreased, the power output of the device increase which directly influences the flavor.

In simple words, if the resistance offered by the coil is below one ohm then more heat will be generated as compared to the coils with resistance equal or higher than one. More heat will result in more vaporization of the e-liquid at a given time which will further result in highly concentrated and vibrant flavor.

Is it Safe to customize your Vaporizer for Sub-Ohm Vaping?

You will never get a straight forward answer to this question from any vaping pro that you might run into. Where customizing an electronic gadget always brings in a risk factor, there still are ways to modify your electronic cigarette for safe usage.

A lot of vaping experts consider the customization of a cheap and non-compatible device to be unsafe because when you lower the resistance of the atomizer coils, the amps of your electronic cigarette proportionally increase and in extreme situation, putting too much load on the batteries of your e-cig can result in an explosion or at the least can destroy your e-cig completely. At this point, a lot of you might be getting alarmed and it is good to be careful but you can find a dedicated device on the market that will allow you to sub-ohm vape without having to deal with any unpleasant situation.

Not so long ago, when dedicated sub-ohm tanks weren’t available in the market, customization of a vaporizer to make it suitable for vaping was a lot of trouble that vaping enthusiasts had to go through. You can stop by at your favorite e-cig shop or online store for checking out various types of sub-ohm tanks to find out the one that is compatible with your device.

The only bad thing about sub-ohm vaping is that your modified e-cig consumes a lot more e-liquid during the act. You might find yourself running out of an e-liquid bottle in a matter of days. You would also want to get a portable charging device for your e-cig because sub-ohm vaping drains the battery really fast. One thing that we can say for sure is that these additional expenses will seem pretty minute as compared to the vibrant and enriched experience that you will get from sub-ohm vaping.
