Selecting the right tank for your needs can take a little trial and error, with options such as; RDA, RTA, Sub ohm and coils – how do you know where to start? What you ultimately decide, can have a big effect on your vaping experience, so read on to make the best decision for yourself.
How Does Different E-juice Affect Your Coil
A coil clogged up with e-juice can make problems for any vaper and can cause your vape to stop working effectively or even worse – not work at all. Understanding how various vape juices affect your coils, will help you to optimise your vaping experience.
Generally a higher VG vape juice requires cleaning the tank more often, due to it being thicker in consistency and thus producing more gunky residue. A higher PG e-liquid is thinner in consistency and usually easier to look after. Mesh coils are also now becoming a popular option, where a stainless steel mesh replaces the steel wire as the coil.
Which Tank Option Is Best for You
Sub Ohm Tanks
Sub ohm tanks are generally popular because they’re the most simple to use and you have many options to choose from. You may want to avoid the sub ohm tank if you’re a high nicotine user, as sub ohm tanks work very efficiently and demand high power, which will make your vape liquid disappear quickly. This in turn will mean you’ll burn up more cash.
Although you may spend more using the sub ohm tank if you’re a heavy vaper, tanks can be bought at a variety of price points to suit all cash flows. Sub ohm tanks work really well with little maintenance except replacing your coil. Well-made and stylish, one thing to be aware of is that the sub ohm tanks do have a limited wattage range. Air flow can also be controlled to further enhance your vaping experience.
RTA (Rebuildable Tank Atomiser)
With a RTA tank you can customise and set resistance and you often get a better flavour due to you being able to set your coils to your taste. RTA,s are not the best choice for newbie vapers as they can be quite difficult to build and install.
RDA (Rebuildable Dripping Atomiser)
The RDA doesn’t have a tank to hold the e-juice, but it drips directly down onto the wick/coils. You are required to build your own deck and remember – a large coil equals more flavour. After your coil is built, you need to add the wick and there are multiple techniques you can follow.
RDA,s are the best for high amounts of vapour production, will give you denser vape clouds and you can use many flavours in one sitting without having to change tanks. Once built, RDA,s are super simple to use, but take a bit of experience to put them together.
Instead of having to manually drip the juice onto your coil, squonking allows you to have a small container within the body of the mod, where you actually squeeze or press to have juice pushed through to the coil. Being so easy to use, it’s fast becoming a super popular choice of tank.
