A sub-ohm tank is a necessary part of chasing clouds. As the name implies, a sub-ohm tank is compatible with a sub-ohm coil. It has a relatively large vape juice capacity because this style of vaping requires a lot of e-liquid per hit. The coil sits in the center of the well so that its wick stays saturated with e-liquid. Look for a sub-ohm tank that's made with Pyrex glass. Due to the high output of the device that you'll be using, you'll having a tank material that won't crack when exposed to lots of heat is critical.

Go for batteries that are above 2000mAh, as this guarantee extended vaping sessions before having to recharge them.

Most sub-ohm enthusiasts agree that the more vegetable glycerin, the better. If your e-juice has a base of at least 70% vegetable glycerin (VG), you'll be fine. How? Because VG is a highly viscous material that produces thicker and fluffier clouds of vapor.
