What exactly is "Sub-ohm" vaping?
#1
Hey guys. I'm kind of a newbie to vaping, so I don't exactly know all the terminology and stuff. Can anyone explain what Sub-ohm vaping is to me? It'd be greatly appreciated! Tongue

Hi there, basically sub ohm vaping is when you build your own coil/wicks that when tested on a ohm meter read out at less that one ohm resistance.

Let's say you are using basic clearomizer tank on an ego style battery like this

Those wicks you see in there.... at the top of them is some wire wrapped in a coil around the wick.

The juice is pulled up through the wick and onto the coil so that when you hit the button on your battery the coils light up red hot and vaporize the juice. These clearomizers like most usually have a resistance of around 1.5-2.5 ohms

With sub ohm vaping, people like myself use a rebuildable atomizer like this where we build our own coils/wicks that read out at less than one ohm

The main reason people sub ohm vape is for massive vapor and flavor production but you MUST know your battery safety and how sub ohm vaping relates to the batteries you are using so nothing bad happens.

here is just a random video I found with some info on sub ohm vaping, It's early for me so I hope I made sense lol post questions if I missed something.

What an incredibly informative post! Smile

That answered all my questions about it. You're the man!! Big Grin

Also, that guy in the video created a GARGANTUAN amount of vapor :o

Is there any place on the net to straight up buy a vape that would produce that much vapor?

ha no problem man Smile and nah you don't really find pre-built atomizers like that. You can find pre-wrapped coils of various resistances and wire gauge on ebay though and then you would just install the coil and some cotton wicking onto whatever rebuild-able atomizer you are using.

If you hit a point where you are comfortable with battery safety and attempting to get into rebuildables i might suggest picking up a Copper Nemesis clone and a Mephisto RDA with the copper ring from ebay.

The copper Nemesis is nice because the copper is more conductive than stainless steel which results in a lower amount of voltage drop (you get better hits), and the Mephisto is really easy to build on with a wide range of Kanthal gauges.

Get yourself some of the batteries he covers and a cheap ohm meter like he uses and try building a few coils but I would build ones that end up reading out at no lower than 0.5 ohms (thats dual and single coils) because lower than that and you are getting in to the extreme zones.
