E-cig tanks and e-cigarettes
From simple starter e-cig tanks to the more powerful sub-ohm e-cigarette tanks, there are plenty of diverse vaping options available, each enabling a different vaping experience.
What is an e-cig tank?
An e-cig tank is the heart and soul of your e-cigarette, it is what creates the clouds of vapour and delivers nicotine to the vaper. E-cig tanks come in a wide range of styles and offer different levels of vaping to suit your personal preference. Housed within the tank is a ‘coil’, this is the heating element which atomizes e-liquid and allows e-cigarettes to function. Coils can produce more or less vapour depending on the type used or whether your e-cig allows the output setting to be changed.
What is a sub-ohm e-cig tank?
Sub-ohm refers to the electrical resistance of the coil located within the tank. When the resistance reads as 1.0ohm or less on your e-cigarette, this is classed as a sub-ohm coil. The benefits to using sub-ohm include increased vapour production and flavour, but they require a higher power setting to be used in order to achieve this, hence why sub-ohm tanks are known to produce a very warm vape.
In addition to producing more vapour, sub-ohm tanks deliver more nicotine to the vaper, meaning less inhalations are required to feel a ‘hit’ from your e-liquid. Most vapers opt to use a lower strength nicotine when using a sub-ohm tank, as it reduces the ‘throat hit’ and allows for a greater amount of inhalations.
What is an RTA?
RTA’s or Rebuildable Tank Atomizers, offer a more advanced option to vapers looking to begin building their own coils. Instead of housing a disposable coil, RTA’s require you to install either a pre-made or ‘DIY’ coil into the tanks build deck. Cotton must then be cut to size and threaded through the coil prior to being placed inside the tank housing.
RTA’s produce a much more intense flavour and larger clouds of vapour when compared with traditional e-cig tanks, whilst retaining an easy to maintain structure. In addition, you need only replace the cotton rather than the actual coil (the coils will last at least a month or so before requiring a replacement), making RTA’s an incredibly economical option.
What is an RDA?
RDA’s or Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers, do not hold e-liquid like a conventional e-cig tank, instead you ‘drip’ e-liquid directly on to the coil to saturate the cotton prior to inhaling. RDA’s are aimed at vapers looking to move into the more advanced stage of vaping by building their own coils and using cotton to allow e-liquid to become atomized.
RDA’s can operate under high wattage, and arguably create the largest clouds of vapour of all e-cig tanks available. They are commonly used with mech mods or high powered e-cig mods in order to get the best experience.
