Optimal Ohm Range in Sub-Ohm Vaping
Sub-ohm vaping remains one of the main trends in vaping. Today not only professionals but also newbies choose this technique. Main nuances that interest vapers are what resistance in ohm/wattage are optimal for sub-ohm vaping.
Sub-ohm vaping and its advantages
Sub-ohm is a standalone vaping technique, which is used on atomizers with low resistance (less than 1 ohm). Low resistance is the main feature of the technique that attracts vapers so much, both experienced and newbies.
What is the advantage of this kind of vaping? Why is low resistance needed in vape devices? The thing is that the coil builds with resistance lower than 1 ohm ensure excellent generation of vapor and boast high-quality taste delivery. Owners of clearomizers for sub-ohm and RDAs can use this technique.
How to vape with low resistance
Even beginning vapers can use special clearomizers as such devices rely on the principle “press power and use”. You do not have to build coils and get into all nuances of the process. Earlier such vaping devices were rare, but now a rather wide range of clearomizers is available (Aspire CF, Subox Mini Starter Kit, and many others).
Seasoned vapers can use RDAs with their own coil builds for sub-ohm vaping. Usually, coil builds are made of such materials as iron and nickel. Besides, Japanese cotton and cotton wool are used as wicking materials.
How is good generation of vapor and great taste delivery realized in sub-ohm vaping? Everything is simple: thanks to low resistance and high wattage, e-liquid heats up fast, causing intensified vape generation and high concentration of flavor tones.
What wattage should the device have?
What do watts mean in vaping? They show the power capacity of the device. For productive vaping, you should use a sub-ohm clearomizer with high wattage. The lower limit is 20 W. The basic condition for everything to work as required is “the lower the resistance, the higher the wattage”.
The basic correspondence principles, resistance/wattage:
1 ohm – 10.8 W;
0.5 ohm – 21.8 W;
0.24 ohm – 45.4 W;
0.1 ohm – 108.9 W.
The resistance on the clearomizer or RDA, which the vaper plans to use for sub-ohm vaping, depends on the coil: its material, number of loops, and diameter of the wire. Characteristics influence resistance in the following way: the number of loops increases it, and the thickness of wire decreases. You need to find the optimal balance between the first and the second characteristic, which is achieved with certain experience. If you do not plan to deal with these nuances, you’d better choose a suitable clearomizer and a powerful mod.
Optimal watts for vaping
The heating speed of the atomizer depends on not only resistance but also the material of the wire. The most frequently used materials are stainless steel and nichrome. Stainless steel heats up faster. For example, if 30 W is applied to the atomizer made of stainless steel, it will heat up faster than the same atomizer made of nichrome.
There is no standard number of watts for comfortable vaping. In fact, everything depends on user preferences. For every atomizer and vaper, comfortable parameters are individual. For most of common atomizers and coils, the normal wattage ranges from 30 to 80 W.
Why high wattage is required?
The market also offers devices with the wattage of up to 300 W. Such mods are needed when the vaper makes coils independently and creates unique builds. Some coil builds turn out to be unbelievably cool and require high wattage. However, normally 80 W will do for comfortable vaping, thick vapor, and good taste. High wattage is harmful to standard atomizers, as they can overheat and burn out.
What mods and clearomizers to use for sub-ohm vaping
To vape with low resistance, beginners will need a clearomizer with a special atomizer and a mod with a certain wattage. Resistance should not exceed 1 ohm and wattage should be adjustable. Clearomizers and devices that function without any special settings are widely presented in the market. For example, Aspire CF mod (supports from 0.3 to 1 ohm) and Subox Mini Starter Kit from Kanger.
In the past, it was hard to find readymade devices, so vapers were building coils on their own, used rebuildable clearomizers. Although all these things are available as ready-to-use products now, committed vapers use handmade coils to vape comfortably.
Sub-ohm clearomizers should have several important characteristics such as quality airflow and a big tank for e-liquid, as its consumption is rather high as compared to ordinary devices. The reason is that in sub-ohm vaping, e-liquid heats up more and consequently evaporates with high speed.
Sub-ohm vaping is an everlasting trend and immortal classics. Today this vaping technique is available to both experienced and beginning vapers. The main thing is to choose the right device and follow the safe use rules.
