Frequently Asked Questions
A vape tank is a component in your vape device that holds your vape juice and the vape coil (heating elements) that heats up and creates the vapor. Simply put, it’s an all-in-one storage unit that holds your favorite e juice until it is ready to be vaped by you. Vape tanks can be made from pyrex or glass, or from metal like anodized aluminium or steel.
To prolong the life of your vape pen and prevent damage, it’s important to choose a high-quality vape tank. Plus, regular cleaning and maintenance of your vape tank is a must to enjoy a smooth vape experience.
MTL, or mouth-to-lung tanks, mimic the experience of smoking a cigarette, since you draw the vapor from a slim mouthpiece into your mouth, and then inhale it into your lungs. They produce a quick and solid throat hit that immediately satiates your cravings. Plus, MTL tanks don’t produce an excessive amount of vapor so are ideal for discreet vaping on the go.
These vape tanks have a relatively narrow airflow, with the coils attached to the tank. The coil wicks up the eliquid, and heat it to produce the vapor when the device is fired up. This vapor is then drawn from the mouthpiece by the user.
On the other hand, we have Sub-Ohm Tanks that are built for cloud chasers! These tanks use coils that have a resistance of less than 1 ohm. Sub-ohm tanks have wider chimneys and support a much higher airflow.
That’s why they produce tonnes of vapor with a rich, smooth flavor. They’re perfect for DTL, or direct-to-lung vaping, where the vapor is inhaled directly into the lungs from the mouthpiece.
There are many sizes and types of vape tanks out there sold by several brands, so it’s crucial to choose one that works perfectly for your needs:
- Device Compatibility: Make sure that the vape tank you’re buying is compatible with your vape device. Most of the new age vape tanks are compatible with mods and batteries that have the standard 510 connections.
- E-Liquid Capacity: Choose a tank with enough e-liquid capacity to last you for a decent duration, and to avoid frequent refilling. This would depend on your personal vaping habits and frequency.
Vaping style: Do you enjoy a tight draw with a cigarette-like throat hit, or do you prefer tonnes of thick, flavorful clouds while vaping? Keep your vaping style when picking your tank, since different tanks are ideal for MTL and DTL vaping.
