While vaping electronic cigarette pens has grown tremendously in popularity; many people are still vague about sub-ohm vaping. For most vapers, sub-ohm vaping is quite an obscure subject.
Sub-ohm vaping, also known as “sub-ohming” uses atomizers that are capable of vaping at under 1 Ohm of resistance. In other words, sub-ohm vaping lets an electronic hookah pen generate higher wattage without increasing the voltage of the battery. In simple terms, sub-ohm vaping produces bigger plumes of vapor and big clouds.

Let's have a look at some of the reasons why you should switch to sub-ohming:
Huge vapor production
If you wish to vape harder or blow bigger clouds than the person next to you then sub-ohming is for you. You have to use a thicker wick and coil and a lot of battery power to make sure that it generates plenty of cloud vapor.
Some people think that once you have tried a tank with a (sub ohm) low-resistance, it will be difficult for you to go back to higher intensity vaporizers or high-resistance silica-wicked clearomizers. As the amount of vapor produced is comparatively higher, an e-cigarette meant for sub-ohming tends to unlock much more flavor. In other words, more vapor with each puff means mouthful of flavor as well. So you enjoy intense clouds combined with great e-liquid flavor. In fact, this is one of the prime reasons that many vapers begin sub-ohm vaping.
Due to the higher wattage and extra heat that is created, sub-ohm vaping produces a slightly warmer vapor. However, vapers do not have to worry about the warm vapor burning their lips as the wide airflow helps to cool it down. Users who prefer a cool vape will probably not like the idea of sub-ohm vaping.
Now the question arises is whether sub-ohming safe?
Sub-ohm vaping is absolutely safe as long as you understand what you are doing. If you do not know the techniques well enough, it can cause serious injury to you and damage property too. Hence it is recommended that before you use a sub ohm atomizer, read the instructions carefully before operating it. If you are new to vaping, it is advised not to start sub-ohm vaping without conducting proper research.
You do not need to be an expert in electrical engineering to do sub-ohm vaping. However, gaining little knowledge and understanding of Ohm's law and basic electronics would help greatly in doing sub-ohming safely.
Most importantly, gather proper information on battery safety, in order to understand how to safely sub-ohm. Educate yourself, read articles on battery safety or speak to someone knowledgeable to get a fair idea on the right techniques.
In order to avoid any blunders, try not to use batteries for over extended period of time. Batteries tend to explode, if you keep on using it without any break. Hence avoid overuse and overheating of battery for utmost safety.
It is always recommended to use electronic cigarettes that are specifically designed for safe sub-ohm vaping experience rather than trying to mod one yourself. Make sure to opt for a good e-cigarette brand offering sub-ohm vaping option.
