    It's vaping with an atomizer coil(s) that has a resistance to electricity of less than one ohm. Usually only done by those that build their own coils.

    Generally it's going to result in a warmer vape with more vapor.

    Generally you need a larger than stock air hole and a mechanical mod. Most importantly you need good batteries and good knowledge of battery safety as well as an understanding of ohms law.

    Sub ohm was one step in learning what can be done with a coil. It's sort of 'old hat' by todays standards, there are safer, better, ways to do things now.

    Will you stop it tj... lol I like the occasional .8 build and I don't like to be described by anyone (except my wife maybe) as 'old hat'

    I recently saw a guy with a 1.2 ohm build that won a cloud blowing contest. He beat my dual coil 24g 0.11 build hands down. Sadly he wouldn't show the build, only put it on an ohm meter to prove the resistance.

    So you don't HAVE to do sub ohm to get the fog effect, but I haven't yet figured out a build over an ohm that can beat my super low resistance builds.

    sub ohm is for cloud chasers

    I do not believe it is a necessary part of vaping and it is very often detrimental to public acceptance to vaping because of people blowing HUGE clouds of vapor in public in an attempt to show off (which is the only reason to cloud chase IMO)

    you end up vaping at high wattages which in most cases end up in burnt tasting juice (unless you drip between each vape - this gets to be a hassle)

    as you can probably tell I am not a fan of cloud chasing or sub ohm vaping and believe it should be confined to private places where the general public will not witness it and get the wrong impression of vaping

    just my 2 cents

    as an intermediate cloud chaser I hate to admit it but, I concur :)

    I always thought it was just for the under 20 crowd, probably never really been smokers, who are looking for attention. I don't even consider it vaping. Kind of like the guys with 5 inch dual exhausts on a Civic... Or the guys who think they have nice stereos because their trunk rattles...
