Sub-ohming tanks are the latest items in the vapor market today. Smok, Joyetech, Kanger and Aspire are among the companies that recently introduced their newest models of such tank.
Aspire has Atlantis. Kanger has Subtank, Joyetech has Delta II and Smoke has Vapor Chaser. If you have been following the trends in the vapor market and is an enthusiast of anything new in a market, these sub-ohming tanks will definitely tickle your fancy. All of these new items offer flavor clarity, amazing vapor production and an overall satisfying experience that used to be enjoyed only by the coil builders in not so recent time.
In essence, these new tanks offer lower resistances and better airflow without requiring you to learn how to build coil. This will also give you another reason to be interested in getting your own sub-ohm tank. Yet, before getting your credit card or wallet prepped for the purchase, here are some considerations you should make.
Greater Ejuice Consumption
Sub-ohm tanks may offer simplicity and convenience for getting rich flavors and amazing vapor plumes. Yet, this convenience comes with more ejuice expenses. Compared to a traditional clearomizer, these tanks use more eliquids. They go through eliquids a lot quicker than usual clearomizers. This is because they are designed that way.
Huge and voluminous clouds are certainly produced by these tanks, but they do not accomplish this through some unknown magic or advanced technology. These tanks make more vapors by vaporizing more eliquids within a short period of time. Thus, these tanks need to be refilled more often. Therefore alos, you need to make some adjustments to your budget on ejuice if you have been vaping with a regular clearomizer that vaporize only a typical amount of eliquid.
Greater Battery Charge Consumption
Apart from using up more eliquids than usual, sub-ohming tanks also use up battery powers a lot quicker.
This is because sub-ohm tanks use coils with lower resistances. Sub-ohmers vape with less than 1 ohm in their coils. Coils allow the tanks to perform fantastically in producing immense amount of vapor. Yet, law of electronics, Ohm’s Law, dictates that as the resistance is lowered, the more power will be consumed. For the sub-ohm coil to heat up faster and make more vapors, they will need more power to function accordingly. This means that your battery will be drained of its power a lot faster than usual.
You will need, therefore, to prepare yourself for frequent recharging or acquire the habit of carrying spare fully charged batteries wherever you go.
Need For New Device
If you prefer vaping at 3.8 volts, you would need a 1.8 ohms coil. The user should use a battery that is capable of delivering 8 watts of power. Variable wattage devices these days are capable of such power requirement.
Yet, the same 3.8 volts on a 0.5 ohm coil will need a device that could provide 28.8 watts of power. Many devices have minimum resistance requirement of 1 ohm to give protection to the batteries. These tanks with lower than 1 ohm resistance will therefore not work even with some of the highly popular devices like iStick and iTaste MVP2. This could mean that also mean that along with your purchase of a new sub-ohm tank, you might also need to purchase a new device capable of running lower than 1 ohm coils.
Varied Price and Features
These sub-ohm tanks are not made the same. They differ in features and also in price. Although all of the new tanks offer sub-ohm vaping functions, they come from different manufacturing companies. Each company would certainly try to make its product different from other similar products.
These are features you also need to consider before making the purchase. Choose a product with features that match your needs, but whose price will also suit your budget.
