    Why Sub Ohm? arround 12 watts vaping is more then enough

    Hello Everyone..
    I'm very new to vaping and I did read a lot about vaping and done my research and decided to go with provari 3 and Aspire Nautilus Tank on 1.6 ohm coils with 18650 AW battery 2200Mah and I'm quite happy with it around 13 watt.. pushing it further will burn the taste and going below 8 Watt the taste is very weak

    Now my question is why do some vapers do sub ohm and go down under 1 ohm? will the juice taste better when you push too much amps on mechanical or they just want to produce more clouds?
    I understand that you might want to save on mechanical but why sub ohm? cant you just stay between 1ohm to 1.8ohm?

    In short, sub ohming means less resistance, which means higher wattage, which means warmer vape and more clouds.

    Your 1.8ohm coil can't handle more than 13 watts, and that's normal and to be expected. A 0.5 ohm coil can handle 20, 30, 40 and in some cases, up to 70 watts. Sub ohming doesn't necessarily have to be on a mechanical device. There is plenty of regulated devices (I'll bet a reasonable amount of money the next version of the provari will be in that group) that can handle sub ohm coils.

    In regards to flavor, in general, flavor is better on the new tanks (aspire, subtank, delta 2, melo, ego one). It's a more intense style of vaping. Some like it, some don't. I've got 4 different tanks that handle sub ohming, and it's not for me, but there is a huge amount of people out there prefer it. Some prefer a cooler vape. Some are in the middle, like myself, that like vaping around the 1ohm mark.

    If you are going to get into sub ohming though, you need to do a bit of research. Read forums, check out youtube, talk to people, whatever. Learn about it as much as you can before you start delving into that aspect of vaping.

    Depends whether huuuuuuuge clouds are important or whether better flavour is your aim, IMHO

    Well it's kinda fun I guess to get into mechanical. I thought you will get a burned taste when you go over 13 watts on sub ohm coils, more vapours and taste good why not

    If you use the same mech/mod & the same juice.
    The type of Atty and wick controls the cloud size and flavor.
    The resistance controls how long you need to hold your finger on the button to get the same result.
    Ergo low resistance is snappier

    Clouds certainly. Some flavours will taste better at a different ohm range than others.
    But it's important to remember that, primarily, different atomizers will really excel at different ohm ranges. Where 13W might be the upper limit for your Nautilus, 13W may be the lower limit for another atomizer.
    As JV said, also personal taste as to whether one likes a hot, moist vape, or a cooler dryer one.
