Is Sub-Ohm vaping really that dangerous?
#1
I've read on a lot of forums that Sub-Ohm vaping severely burns your throat. I'd like to try it, but I'm afraid not to get hurt very much.

For those of you who have tried this before, is it real that Sub-Ohm is very dangerous?

i've read a couple stories about super sub ohm multi coil builds like dual and quad .2 or .3 coils. It sounds like in most cases the issue comes down to a large amount of airflow to the coils and a wide drip tip which kind of allows really hot vapor and heated droplets of liquid to actually be inhaled.

I myself never go below 0.4 ohms and only build dual coils and even with my bigger RDA's that have tons of airflow, I have never had a problem.

The one thing that you need to worry about however is battery safety when sub ohm vaping. You need to be able to check the resistance of your coils using an ohm meter (you can get one specifically for RDAs), have batteries that can handle the coil you build, and a good charger for the batteries.

One tool you can use to see if your batteries can handle the build you set up is this Ohms Law calculator

Basically, if your batteries can't handle the coil you build, they can go into runaway mode and catch fire.

Well, I personally won't try this. Okay, maybe once to see how it feels. But it seems to be very dangerous and somehow painful, so I don't want to risk anything. One of my friends got his throat burned
because of these vapers.

The sad part is sub-ohming is becoming so talked about and so commonplace that everyone wants to do it. They don't read up on safety or the correct way to do things. They buy some Kanthal, a dripper, and a cotton ball and go to town. THIS is where accidents happen. Burns, explosions, fires, seriously. If you MUST sub-ohm, PLEASE do your homework.

Personally, I'm fine at .08 or higher, but that's all personal preference.

One more thing, if you're going to sub-ohm, do NOT subohm at your normal nic level. Step it down a whole bunch of notches. You'll thank me later.

Well, thanks for the advice. And regarding suh-ohming, I don't think it's a very common technique. At least not in my area. It's more like something to do at home for me, as policemen could get suspicious about it.

Could someone explain what Sub-ohm vaping is please? Thank you Smile

Basically, what you want to remember is that your battery has to be stronger than the atomizer. Wherever you go to buy yours, ask the sales staff about the ratio. If they don't have a clue as to what you're talking about, find another store.
