If all the talk about ‘vaping’ has left you confused, don’t be, especially when it comes to sub-ohm vaping. Trying to understand it all at once including sub-ohm vaping can be daunting. This blog should help clear the air (no pun intended). Whether you vape to relax or you’ve just quit smoking cigarettes and need a little help, here’s what you need to know.

Let’s talk about sub-ohm vaping. This method produces a large amount of vapor. A lot of folks like that. It also produces a stronger nicotine hit. Ejuice flavors are also enhanced. If that’s what you’re looking for, keep reading.

If you enjoy a challenge, you can try a 28-gauge dual-coil vaporizer at .3 ohms. Sub-ohm vape has the potential to produce a whole lot of vapor. The wires heat up faster and get much hotter thereby creating more vapor and a better nicotine hit, but the resistance is not the only thing that’s crucial and it’s important to understand why.

Both a 26-gauge wire and a 28-guage wire have the resistance of .8 ohms. The thicker 26-gauge wire, however, requires more wire to produce .8 ohms. This means it will get you more vapor because there is more surface area to vaporize the ejuice. Now, what happens when you try to get .8 ohms using a 32-gauge wire? The wire is too short so it’s not really feasible. Thin wires are used for the higher ohm builds. So, for sub-ohms, it’s best to use a 28-gauge thicker wire. This blog will talk about 28-gauge builds.

Then there’s dual-coil builds! Both use 28-gauge wires and both have the resistance of .8 ohms, but the dual-coil requires 4 times more wire to get .8 ohms. This larger amount of wire will produce a lot more vapor (lots more) and that’s why sub-ohm vapers like to use at least 2 coils.

A vape fresh out of the box has small air holes, so vapers tend to drill larger holes. The coils get really hot . This helps with the heat as well. With larger holes, the vapor is also somewhat diluted because it draws more air. The key to controlling vapor is resistance, wire surface area, and airflow.

Low resistance works best with a dripper. With other atomizers, the ejuice will vaporize faster than the wick can absorb it. With drippers it won’t because you drip ejuice straight onto the coil. The heat from sub-ohm will eventually wear out the insulator. This is the part that separates the positive from the ground. If damaged, it can create a short. Don’t worry, though. This part is easily replaceable.

A very important thing to keep in mind is the resistance limit which is different with each battery. If you have an AW 18650 2000 mA power battery, the lowest vape ohm to run would be .3 ohms. Keep in mind that going too low can short out the battery which can cause the battery to explode.
