The Sub-Ohm Lifestyle

There are many different vapes, vaping styles, reasons people vape and probably AT LEAST a dozen other factors when it comes to the “vape industry” as a whole. Today, our focus will be on, what seems to be, the most talked about vaping style out there – sub-ohm vaping.

First, what’s an ohm? Well, it’s a noun and is defined as, “the electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference applied between these points produces in this conductor a current of one ampere. The resistance in ohms is numerically equal to the magnitude of the potential difference.”

What does this mean to us vapers? Sub-ohming will produce theoretically bigger clouds (if this is something that appeals to you), enhance your vape juice flavor of choice, and create a warmer sensation while vaping. Many people who prefer sub-ohm vaping, prefer the warmth due to it simulating the same type of warmth from analog products – if you know what I mean.

The evolution of the vaping industry has lead to there being many options if you’re interested in sub-ohm vaping (where as there used to be few).  RDA’s (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers), RTA’s (Rebuildable Tank Atomizers), and flat-out Sub Ohm Tanks are all choices available to vapers worldwide for this method.

Why might sub-ohm vaping NOT be for you? Due to the larger cloud production, this can be quite the attention grabber for people around you.  If you vape in public places, and don’t want that extra consideration from those around you – this may not be the right style for you.  If you are a mouth-to-lung vaper, you may not appreciate the extra-large cloud inside your lungs (though, this is the reason many enjoy sub-ohming). Lastly, massive clouds means more juice. If you are a preservationist and don’t want to run through 15ml+/day (depending on how much you vape throughout) – sub-ohming may not be for you.

Takeaways – if you are vaping for the enormous cloud formation, sub-ohming is how you can easily achieve this. If you vape because you enjoy that colossal full feeling as you inhale and then exhale – sub-ohming can lend a hand.  If you vape for other reasons, great!  Stick with what you’ve got.

    I do both. I still love the way MTL feels, which reminds me of smoking. But I also do quite a bit of subohm. I love the flavor, lung-full sensation, and I’ll be honest, big fluffy clouds on exhale. Time and place for everything.

    I sub-ohm because i enjoy the cloud production and building coils is fun too but showing off and having a full rich cloud of fruit or candy lingering around is what i like most

  • Justin says:

    Sub om is really good 4 people quitting smoking

  • Robert says:

    This all still confuses me a bit.
