Vape tanks and e-cigarettes
No matter which e-cigarette you choose, there will always be some form of vape tank included which holds the e-liquid and coil required to provide the vapour.
From simple starter vape 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 a vape tank?
An e-cig tank is the heart and soul of your e-cigarette, it 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 absorbs e-liquid and turns it into vapour, allowing 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.
If you would like further information on vape tanks, we have a dedicated Vape Tank Information page that would be perfect for you.
What is a sub-ohm vape tank?
Sub-ohm refers to the electrical resistance of the coil located within the tank. When the resistance reads as 0.99ohm 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.
Sub-ohm e-cig tanks are ideally paired with a battery mod, in order to enjoy the full experience these units have to offer. For more recommendations on sub ohm tanks, we have curated a Guide to The Best Sub Ohm Tanks for you to choose the best tank for your preferences.

The Best E-liquids For Different Vape Tanks
The type of e-liquid that works best with vape tanks depends on the coils inside. Sub ohm tanks that use low resistances coils work best with high VG e-liquid. This is because they are designed to be used at higher power settings to create bigger clouds. However, 50/50 e-liquid can also be used as the balanced ratio of PG and VG makes it suitable for both DL and MTL vaping.
Using nic salt or other high strength e-liquid will be too harsh for direct lung vaping and will make the experience unpleasant. Shortfill e-liquid such as Dr. Vapes Panther Series comes in a 78/22 VG PG ratio making it perfect for DL vape tanks.
Tanks with high resistance coils perform better with nic salt. This is because they produce less vapour so require a stronger liquid to deliver a quality throat hit with great flavour. TECC Titan pairs perfectly with MTL vape tanks because of the high PG content. This allows it to be absorbed easily by the coil as well as delivering a sharp throat hit.
Like with sub ohm tanks 50/50 e-liquid is also suitable for MTL vaping. A great option for those who want an e-liquid that can do both is Double Drip 50/50. The balanced PG/VG ratio makes it suitable for any vape tank. Plus, it comes in 4 strengths from 1.8% for MTL vapers to 0.3% for direct lung.
