While many of our customers are more attuned to a more moderate MTL style of vaping – you can check our DTL vs MTL explained post, we acknowledge that vaping wouldn’t be nearly as popular as it is without the big cloud chasers, puffing out huge volumes of sweet, tasty vape clouds and driving up interest in vaping worldwide!

So, without further ado, let’s jump into the MIST roundup of the best sub-ohm vape tanks on the market in 2021!

Pros

  • Brilliant design
  • Spring-loaded top-fill mechanism
  • Incredible flavour and clouds

Finally, something rather special. We’ve taken a look at a number of different tanks to determine the ways in which they excel for specific uses, but there has to be a champion.

And today that winner for the top 8 sub-ohm tanks is the Uwell Valyrian 2!

The Uwell Valyrian blew everyone away when it first hit our shores; intense flavour and clouds emerging from a frankly stunningly designed mesh coil, engineered specifically to produce the most cloud possible at the highest flavour levels attainable.

The Valyrian 2 serves to improve upon the design of the original, making it the most expertly designed sub-ohm vape tank we’ve looked at yet!

The top-fill cap is spring loaded, and pops off with a firm press of the subtle release switch, revealing large kidney shaped application holes for your vape juice. The coils are held in place firmly via both the base threading and the chimney which securely grips the coil in place and prevents overt condensation and leakage.

There are three adjustable air holes at the base to grant the user total control over draw tightness and cloud production.

The entire tank comes apart with a few firm unscrews, allowing for total cleaning access and allowing you to maintain absolutely purity of flavour.

The Uwell Valyrian 2 comes with two coils included, a pre-installed 0.32ohm UN2 single coil and a 0.14ohm UN2-2 dual coil, both of which are intended solely for intense sub-ohm use.

From the extremely wide bore delrin mouthpiece to the subtly curved glass which goes inward to avoid breakage, every aspect of the Uwell Valyrian 2 sub-ohm vape tank is expertly designed to provide the most robust and satisfying vape possible, and easily takes the champions crown today!

2. SMOK TFV12 – Best Sub-Ohm Vape Tank for Clouds

Score – 7/10

The SMOK TFV12 is one of the latest sub-ohm vape tanks from the cloud masters at SMOK, long known for their big beefy mods and high levels of potential cloud production.

SMOK TFV12 is the best sub-ohm tank for clouds

Pros

  • Extreme cloud production

Cons

  • Only three coils per pack

The SMOK TFV12 is one of the latest sub-ohm vape tanks from the cloud masters at SMOK, long known for their big beefy mods and high levels of potential cloud production.

Lately SMOK have been putting everyone to shame with their pod vape devices, but they still retain cloud mastery with tanks like the TFV12!

Initially designed to sit proudly atop the SMOK P25 sub-ohm stick vape, the TFV12 quickly became renowned in its own right for unprecedented levels of intense cloud production.

Able to take three distinct coils which register at 0.4ohm, 0.15ohm and 0.12ohm respectively, the SMOK TFV12 is not the kind of sub-ohm vape tank you’d want to use in a crowded indoor setting!

You can quickly find the right voltage setting by using this Ohms Law calculator. Or, you can learn more about our coils explained post.

The wide bore 810 drip-tip is perfectly designed for big gasping lungfuls of vapour, unleashed into the air above you like a corporeal cloud of sweet aether, with adjustable airflow on the tank base giving you full control over just how huge a plume you’re looking to produce in a given moment. Here’s our expert guide to cloud chasing.

The TFV12 has an optional mesh coil available, which improves flavour and ensures rapid absorption, lowering the likelihood of dry burns.

If your goal is to unleash the dragon and puff out the largest, competition-level cloud of vapour possible then you can’t do better than the SMOK TFV12!

3. Uwell Crown V – Best Leak Proof Sub-Ohm Vape Tank

Score – 9/10

The Uwell Crown V is the fifth addition to the Crown series of sub-ohm vape tanks, a cult favourite line prized for stylish designs, clear flavours and sophisticated, mess-free sessions.

Red and black Uwell Crown V sub-ohm tank

Pros

  • Brilliant design
  • Leak proofing

Cons

  • None!

The Uwell Crown V is the fifth addition to the Crown series of sub-ohm vape tanks, a cult favourite line prized for stylish designs, clear flavours and sophisticated, mess-free sessions.

The Uwell Crown V sub-ohm vape tank introduces a fascinating new feature, one which seems set to revolutionise sub-ohm vape tanks and eliminate vape juice waste; the base of the unit features a reservoir for condensation, not an entirely new feature for a tank.

What is new is the reabsorption technology; the Uwell Crown V is designed to soak up any vape juice sitting otherwise uselessly in the reservoir, ensuring value for your vape and also completely eliminating messy leaks and sticky fingers when changing the coil, things that were previously seen as an unfortunately necessity of sub-ohm vaping.

The top cap features a 90-degree locking mechanism which ensures fast refills with no risk of leaking and no need to awkwardly grapple with the cap in order to remove it for refilling.

What’s the best PG/VG ratio for this Uwell sub-ohm tank? Check our PG vs VG explained guide.

The Uwell Crown V takes a number of mesh coils, which promote rapid absorption and register at resistances of 0.3ohm, 0.23ohm and 0.2ohm respectively, meaning no matter which you choose you’re in for a cloudy session!

4. Freemax Mesh Pro – Best Sub-Ohm Vape Tank For Flavour

Score – 7.5/10

Clouds are nice, but if you want your huge plumes to be as tasty as they are thicc then you can’t do better than the Freemax Mesh Pro!

Freemax Pro Sub-Ohm tank is one of the top 8 sub-tanks best for flavourful sub-ohm vaping

Pros

  • Unbelievable flavour
  • Huge clouds

Cons

  • Coils sometimes hard to find elsewhere

Freemax were a relatively unknown factor when they exploded onto the vaping scene a few years back with the Freemax Mesh Pro sub-ohm vape tank. These unknown players quickly wowed us all with an unprecedented level of flavour clarity, thanks in large part to their unique coil system.

Designed for use with mesh coils exclusively, there are three distinct variants to choose from; a single coil at 0.15ohm, double coils at 0.2ohm and an earth-shatteringly flavoursome quad coil which registers at 0.15ohm again. Designed for flavour above all else, the Freemax Mesh Pro sub-ohm vape tank is a flavour-chasers dream!

The tank comes apart very easily for full cleaning access, meaning there’s no need for impurity of flavour between coil and vape juice changes.

Clouds are nice, but if you want your huge plumes to be as tasty as they are thicc then you can’t do better than the Freemax Mesh Pro!

Pros

  • Leak-proof

One of the most celebrated aspects of the Veco sub-ohm vape tank has been its coil system. The EUC (Eco Universal Coil), is more affordable than most due to the low amount of materials used in construction.

The coils are easily changed by simply unscrewing the base cap, plucking out the old one and popping in the new. No messy removals or dangers of cross-threading to worry about, the EUC is a fuss-free system of nicotine relief and great flavour!

Available in a number of variants including versions which utilise tea-tree fibers instead of cotton for clearer flavour, ceramic versions for long-lasting use and mesh versions for rapid absorption and increased flavour production.

It’s also a more ecologically invested brand of coils, with a concerted effort made to reduce construction materials to lower waste.

  • Professional grade

Cons

  • Not recommended for beginners

The Geekvape Zues deserves a spot in our top 8 sub-ohm tanks list. It is an impressive sub-ohm tank from Geekvape, makers of the nearly-indestructible Aegis series of mods.

They took the same design genius they used to make that stunning piece of gear and applied it to tank design, resulting in the Zues; a shockingly professional tank with a number of brilliant innovations.

The tank features top airflow; surprising for such a large tank and certain to all but eliminate leaks and spills, giving the vape juice no place to escape to once the tank is filled. The air is drawn down through the top section and reaches the base before carrying your vapour upward to your expectant lips, condensing it for greater flavour and thick cloud production. A novel concept that results in a stunning vape, every time!
