What Are The Best Sub Ohm Vape Tanks To Buy In 2022?

Vape tanks are an essential part of the vaping experience, providing an outlet to heat e-liquid. With a wide choice of styles and sizes to choose from, they remain one of the most customisable aspects of a kit which essentially determines your vaping style.

It is the vape tank that comes into contact with your mouth, with all of them possessing a drip tip or mouthpiece that you inhale vapour out of. Tanks will hold up to 2ml of e-liquid (which is the maximum allowance set by the Tobacco Products Directive) which you will add yourself manually.

There are plenty of vape tanks available, with sub ohm options being some of the most popular and sought after pieces of vape equipment in the market. A sub ohm vape tank will use a coil that is below 1.0 Ohm in resistance, because of this it will create larger amounts of vapour, suiting it to a DTL (Direct To Lung) vaping style. Sub ohm tanks, or sometimes referred to as DTL tanks, are usually intended for advanced vapers and require a working knowledge of Ohm’s Law due to their low coil resistance.

The majority of these sub ohm tanks, unless otherwise stated, perform best with 70% VG e-liquids and higher, and feature a 510 connection meaning they can be used with the vast majority of vape mods. Here’s our top 10:
