5 Benefits of Sub-Ohm Vaping

5 Benefits of Sub-Ohm Vaping

Sub-ohm vaping (also known as sub-ohming) has to do with electricity and the atomizer of your electronic cigarette. A basic atomizer ranges from 1.5 ohms to 2.8 ohms. When sub-ohming, the atomizers are capable of firing under one ohm of resistance. According to Ohm’s Law, lowering the resistance of a circuit can accelerate the power production, and for you seasoned vapers, you know “less resistance” really means “more intense vaping experience.” Usually, sub-ohm vaping calls for high–vegetable glycerin e-liquid (high-VG e-liquid). Vaping experts agree, high-VG e-liquid provides a superior sub-ohming experience.

Is Sub-Ohm Vaping for You?

Let’s clarify: there is no wrong way to vape. Asking a vaper why they sub-ohm is like asking a Chicagoan why they eat deep-dish pizza or questioning a friend’s selection of music; it’s just a matter of personal taste. Although there are definitely noticeable differences between regular and sub-ohm vaping, for the most part, those differences have to do with the vaper’s individual needs:

1) Crazy Vapor Production

One of the main differences between sub-ohming and conventional vaping is the thickness of the clouds produced. If you want to be the next cloud-chasing champion or wish to impress your friends with massive plumes of vapor, ohm technology and high-VG e-liquids are exactly what you need. Be mindful of others, though. You don’t want to be the show-off in a room full of people who may not appreciate your exceptional cloud-chasing skills as much as you do.

2) Smoother Vaping

If powerful throat hits are what you desire, then you probably want to avoid high-VG e-liquids. As a matter of fact, the greater the vegetable glycerin level, the smoother it will feel on your throat. Consider an e-liquid with 50 percent PG and 50 percent VG if you want to experience that intense jolt when inhaling vapor; on the other hand, if propylene glycol irritates your throat and you have trouble tasting flavor, otherwise known as vaper’s tongue, definitely give high-VG e-liquids a chance.

3) Intense Flavor

Faster heating and the larger surface areas of sub-ohm devices equal more flavor. In order to improve the strength and flavor of their juices further, a number of vapers have taken matters into their own hands by building homemade coils. Even though using higher levels of VG can have a negative impact on flavors, industry-leading brands, like Halo, have also carefully reformulated their e-liquids to maintain the same great taste and quality.

4) Warm Clouds

Unless you’re a physics junkie, you may not know higher wattage produces warmer vapor. Increased airflow cools the vapor so it won’t burn your lips, resulting in a warm sensation that advanced users find enjoyable.

5) Lung Hit

As previously mentioned, sub-ohm vaping is perfect for cloud-chasing. What we haven’t told you is most vape aficionados skip the mouth-to-lung-inhale routine and move vapor directly to their lungs, resulting in a powerful chest hit. Regardless of your skill level, since high-VG e-liquids are low in propylene glycol, you can try this without any risk or unpleasant aftertastes.

Now you have a greater understanding of sub-ohming. You may find it to be a suitable alternative to regular vaping, but at what point should you start sub-ohm vaping?

The correct answer is “whenever you feel like it.” The rule of thumb, however, is that when you begin your vaping journey, you need that extra PG to provide you with a better throat hit. After a while, when vaping is no longer a hobby but rather a regular part of your daily routine, you may then upgrade.
