Sub Ohm Vape Kits

Sub-ohm vape kits are often considered to be advanced. They use a coil with resistance that has less than 1 ohm, which is how they get their name. The low-resistance coil produces large amounts of vapour, making these devices ideal for Direct to Lung (DTL) vaping. Usually, sub-ohm vapes will feature an impressive battery life coupled with a high level of power, and this is what leads to increased amounts of vapour and flavour production. You can also expect to find additional features and modes, such as temperature control and automatic power selection on many Sub-Ohm kits. Uk Ecig Store stocks a full range of kits from leading brands, like Smok, VooPoo and Aspire, as well as newer sub-ohm pod kits from brands like OXVA. Due to the high power output and low resistance coil all of these sub-ohm vapes are best paired with a high vegetable glycerin (VG) shortfill e-liquid.

What is sub-ohm vape kit?

The coils within the tank are the key factor that will define a vape kit as sub-ohm or not. If the resistance of the coils is 0.99 Ohm or lower, then this will be sub ohm vape. 

Sub ohm vape kits tend to produce larger amounts of vapour than their lower-powered mouth-to-lung (MTL) counterparts. You will experience dense vapour that is full of flavour – it’s a brilliant way to get the most out of your favourite e-Liquid

What is the best sub ohm vape kit in the UK?

This is a really hard question to answer, as there are so many fantastic sub-ohm vape kits being released all of the time by many manufacturers, including Smok, Uwell and Vaporesso. Right now, if you are looking for a compact sub-ohm kit, then check out the Smok Nord GT, or if you are looking for a traditional sub-ohm vape with maximum adjustability, then take a look at the Freemax Maxus 3

What is included with a sub ohm vape kit?

Within a sub-ohm vape kit, you will have:

  • A vape tank – A vape tank is designed to heat e-liquid and produce vapour. In a sub-ohm vape, it will use coils with a resistance below 1.00 Ohm. 
  • A vape mod – This is the part of the vape that contains the battery and will be capable of firing a lower resistance coil. Some mods will have a maximum wattage output of up to 230 watts and above. 
  • Charging cable – Most of the kits will include a charging cable.
  • Spare coils – They usually also include spare coils for the vape tank. 

It is always worth checking the contents of your kit as most will not come with batteries (unless it is an internal battery). Batteries may, therefore, need to be purchased separately.

What is the best vape juice for a sub-ohm vape kit?

Before you can find your perfect flavour, you need to make sure that you have the right type of e-liquid for a sub-ohm kit. Ideally, you’re looking for a liquid that has high vegetable glycerine (VG) content with a low nicotine amount. This is because the increased vapour from a sub-ohm vape means that higher nicotine levels will be too strong. 

For most people, the best option is to pick a shortfill vape liquid which contains no nicotine and then add a nic-shot.

To help you narrow down your choice of flavour, take a look at our guide to the best shortfill e-liquids.

How long do sub-ohm coils last?

Like all vape coils, the life of a sub-ohm coil will depend on a few factors including your vaping style, the vape juice you are using and the power you’re vaping at. 

Typically, you can expect to get 5-7 days of use from sub-ohm coils, but if you are using very high power settings with sweet juices, this may be a little shorter. If you are using a lower power kit and don’t vape that often, it could last you as long as 10 days.

What nicotine level is best for sub-ohm vaping?

Sub-ohm vape kits produce a larger amount of vapour than a MTL kit. This means that you will need a lower amount of nicotine. 

We recommend using either a 3mg or 6mg nic strength. To achieve these strengths, simply add either 1 or 2 10ml nic shots to a 50ml shortfill e-liquid.
