Why buy a Sub-Ohm kit?
Sub-ohm vape kits are powerhouses putting out between 25 - 200W of power through sub-ohm coils at ranges of 0.15ohm - 0.8ohm. They are infamous for producing big clouds packed with a higher concentration of flavour. With bigger clouds, you are inhaling more vapour in one go and can vape at much lower nicotine levels while still getting your hit and opening you up to much milder high VG e-liquid. The result is a silky smooth & dense vape experience with next to no throat hit and flavour that tastes like the real thing - you can vape Blackberry Cheesecake guilt-free all day! You’ll also be saving money as you’ll be able to take advantage of super economical 50ml or 100ml shortfill bottles that will keep you vaping for ages.
Sub-ohm kits have much bigger battery capacity and also have the option of external batteries, these are much cheaper to replace than buying a new kit if the battery dies with the added benefit that, with a battery charger, you can have a few batteries on the go and never have to worry about running flat.
Another highlight is the extensive range of customisation options with a sub-ohm kit - from the sophisticated coil and tank design, progressive airflow and advanced power setting options - you are free to experiment and create exactly the kind of vape you want. Whether you’re chasing big clouds or want the most authentic flavour possible, with a sub-ohm kit you are free to explore most of what vaping has to offer.
