The Truth Behind Sub Ohm Vaping – Ultimate Guide

July 10, 2017

Pro's and Con's...Let's Talk About Sub Ohm Vaping

Sub Ohm Vaping - Ruthless Vapor E-Juices

The definition of Sub Ohm vaping can be summed up very easily with two words: massive clouds. The more complex definition? Atomizers that can fire at the under 1 ohm of resistance. What does Ohm mean?  According to, the exact definition of an “Ohm’s law” is:

the law that for any circuit the electric current is directly proportional to the voltage and is inversely proportional to the resistance.

If you are still confused, don’t worry, you are not alone. Ohm's law can be confusing for most to wrap their heads around. Fortunately enough, you don’t have to be a physicist to understand the pros and cons of sub ohm vaping. Continue reading to have a better grasp of how Ohm’s law works in the vaping world of today.

All Beginners: Be Warned of Sub Ohm Vaping...

First and foremost, sub-ohm vaping isn’t for everyone. For instance, if you are a beginner to the realm of vaping and are not experienced in rebuildable atomizers, mechanical mods, or battery safety it’s safe to say that you are not ready for sub-ohm vaping. You may ask: how can something so innocent as producing huge clouds of vapor be dangerous? The answer is: your vape device could explode, catch fire, and cause you some serious damage. Just a couple of the major warnings in regards to sub ohm vaping are:

Charging Matters
Battery safety plays a huge role in sub ohm vaping. Misuse of batteries can result in mods exploding or catching fire. What’s important here? Good quality batteries, never overcharging your vape device and never using a charger that isn’t branded. With whatever vape device you decide to use, take the time to research the best batteries and chargers for your mod. There are plenty of forums to help guide you in your vaping experience. Definitely make sure your battery wrapper isn’t broken, either. It’s a safer bet to just buy a new one!
Do NOT use Hybrid Mechanical Mods
If you are not a huge vape nerd you shouldn’t be using a hybrid vape mod in the first place. As far as sub-ohm vaping is concerned, you increase your chances of an explosion significantly with a hybrid mechanical mod. Unless you are an extreme vape expert, you should entirely avoid a hybrid while sub-ohm vaping. Make sure you take the time to research vape mods in general to find the best one suited for huge cloud production.
Air Flow Matters
Simply put, make sure there is good airflow escaping your mod. If the air holes in your mod are clogged, or it is not releasing enough air, then the mod is in danger of exploding due to overheating.

Now, It’s Time for the Fun Part of Sub Ohm Vaping...

Dense Cloud Vapor
Unlike regular “puffs” of vapor, you can produce actual clouds of vapor. So much so that vape fans actually created a competition out of it called “cloud chasing”. The winner can take home awesome vape gear or thousands of dollars. It’s not just fun for them–it’s a sport.
More Flavor
A low-resistance sub-ohm build is said by vape users to have intense flavor. This is due to drawing in more vapor and e-juice with each inhale. Experienced vape competitors prefer to have low nicotine levels to prevent themselves from getting lightheaded due to the amounts of vapor they pull with each puff.
Warmer Vapor
Extra heat is produced during sub-ohm vaping which causes the vapor released to be warmer. Just like there are fans of cool vapor, there are fans of warm vapor as well. Sub-ohm vaping is dubbed as one of the best ways to gain that warmer temperature.

Want Great Clouds without Sub-Ohm Vaping?

If you want to do a cloud chasing competition, max VG is recommended for thicker clouds. However, if you are interested in having a solid vaping experience–with decent cloud production and without the risks of sub-ohm vaping–we recommend a 90/10 ratio E-Juice. This kind of perfect vape cloud ratio can be smooth on the throat while providing excellent flavor. If you are a beginner to the world of vaping it is simple to find the perfect ratio for you! Start the hunt today by checking out a solid selection of e-liquids for the perfect amount of cloud production and flavor. Cloud chasing or sub-ohm vaping could be on the horizon eventually...but in the meantime, be safe, and learn as much as you can. Also never forget: Stay Relentless. Be Ruthless.
