With the world of vaping getting a little more complex, new vapers may find it a little troublesome to understand the little details that make a particular vaping experience unique. New coils, tanks, mods, pods, and the like, while allowing vapers to min-max to achieve the specific expertise, makes it a more significant learning curve for newcomers. Fortunately, it isn't as difficult as one might realise, and if you're new to vaping, you'll more than likely quickly grasp the concepts that make a vaping experience one-of-a-kind.
That being said, one of the factors that can change the vaping experience is the tanks themselves. More specifically, you need to consider two types of tanks for the optimal vaping experience: regular tanks and sub-ohm tanks. Here are the differences between the two options to help you understand how they affect your vaping experience:
The first difference between the two types of tanks is the coils. Sub-ohm tanks generally use a low resistance wire that can handle high outputs, while coils in a standard tank have higher resistance and cannot handle much power. This makes it so that sub-ohm coils tend to get a lot hotter. Since sub-ohm tanks get hotter, they require an e-liquid with a much higher VG concentration for the enhanced density. This results in vapes that produce much thicker clouds and even produce more flavour. However, the downside to this is that the coils can burn out a lot quicker, meaning you'll find yourself replacing sub-ohm tank coils more often.
In both tanks, the airflow can differ greatly. This is because, in many cases, sub-ohm tanks offer unrivalled customizability, where the holes that allow air to come in can be opened to the user's exact preferences. On the other hand, many regular tanks either come with a fixed hole or two holes if you're lucky. Of course, this might not be a problem for many people, especially if they aren't too picky about airflow. One or two holes for air is generally enough for casual users, but for those looking for that perfect experience, a sub-ohm tank's extra airflow option is a godsend.
3. E-Liquid Consumption
Because sub-ohm tanks get much hotter and provide more airflow in some cases, they consume e-liquid in much higher amounts compared to typical tanks. This is something any sub-ohm tank user will tell you about and the reason you'll find them stocking a lot of e-liquids. On average, you will find yourself refilling the tank after three, two, or even one session, and even faster if you're a heavy vaper. Regular tanks last a lot longer and will be perfect for those who can't bother refilling their tanks often.
When it comes to which one is best overall, we cannot give an answer. Everyone has their preferences, and some might find standard tanks to be perfect, while others wouldn't go any other way that isn't sub-ohm tanks. That said, if you're new to vaping, we highly recommend that you give both options a try. Start off with a regular tank, and if you find it unable to meet your expectations or that your vaping demands have changed, opt for sub-ohm and experiment. Only through experiencing them first-hand can you truly know what works, and it is through this effort that you can create that perfect vaping experience!
