If you’re reading this, you’ve probably watched the Vape School video on sub ohm vaping. You probably have some additional questions about the video and what it covered.

We have you covered. This short piece is going to go over the information again with some additional insight. Then you can use this while getting ready to upgrade or change your vape device.

Sub Ohm Vaping - The Quick Version

Known as the Holy Grail for cloud chasers, this is the type of vaping that, you guessed it, gives you bigger clouds and better flavor. That’s because the coil in your mod controls the resistance, or ohms. The thcker the wire used in the coil, the warmer your vape is and the bigger your clouds are.

So how does this happen? Let’s take a look at the factors.


Let’s start with volts, just like in the video. Voltage is the amount of electrical pressure, or power, used in your device. In mods, voltage is controlled by your battery. The more amps found in your battery, the faster your coil heats up.

When using mods, check the voltage of your battery, especially if you’re using a mod that doesn’t offer variable voltage. Most mods do, but for the sake of your face, check. The bulk of batteries on the market are 3.7 volts, but some batteries have higher voltage.


Your vape flavor and cloud production is dictated by ohms. Ohms are the amount of resistance in the actual coil you’re using. Resistance is also dictated by the length of the wire.

Basically, above-ohm means higher than one ohm while sub-ohm is below one ohm. Easy, right? We’ve also covered what a sub-ohm vape is like, so think of an above-ohm vape as the complete opposite, meaning fewer clouds and a cooler vape.


Amps are a measurement of electricity. It dictates how fast the electrical current runs through your mod. This is where the amp measurement on your battery comes in handy. Basically, the higher amp measurement on your battery, the higher rate of discharge on your battery.

That’s a fancy way of saying that more amps will heat your vape mod up faster. Since amps are dictated by your battery, you can choose how fast your mod heats up.

Before you vape, again, check your battery to make sure you’re using the right one for your mod. We’re serious about this. Using the wrong battery can cause your mod to explode.

We hope this article has helped you understand the Vape School video better. It can be tricky to figure out all this science and math when you just want to vape, but we know it’s important. If you’ve got any other questions, leave them below and we’ll make sure someone answers. Happy and safe vaping.
