Pro's and Con's...Let's Talk About Sub Ohm Vaping
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? Ohm is named off of German physicist named Georg Ohm who discovered According to Dictionary.com, 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:
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 use a charger that isn’t branded. With whatever vape device you decide to use, take the time to research 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.
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.
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 in sub-ohm vaping–we recommend a 90/10 ratio E-Juice. This kind of perfect vape cloud ratio is 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.

Also in Ruthless E-Liquid
This summer, Ruthless Vapor decided to visit a huge event. What huge event did they visit? The Vans US Open of Surfing, known as the world’s largest surf competition. Every summer, over half a million people attend the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The best surfers from all over the world come to compete in this big event. Also, in addition to surfing, there are movie premieres, retail and art exhibitions, product demos, and massive BMX and skateboarding competitions. Below is a description of the scene at this significant event.
A throat hit is the feeling is when the inhaled vapor from your e-cig “hits” the back of your throat. However, there are different variations of throat hits and not all of them are the same when it comes to vaping. There are different factors involved that include different e-cigs, mods, setups and e-liquids—each provided by manufacturers with their own special flare when it comes to vaping. There are numerous amounts of e-liquid flavors and strengths to choose from—each with their own kind of “hit”, which can be separated into two different categories: a strong hit and weak hit (also known as a “smooth” hit).
At Ruthless Vapor we strive to provide as much knowledge as possible when it comes to vaping. If you are new to the e-cigarette realm of vaporizers, you can be a little lost! Hopefully this vape glossary combined some common terms will be of some service!
