While there are more vaporizers than you can count at one sitting and new versions released just days after perfectly good mods come onto the market, it’s not the same with sub ohm tanks. Manufacturers tweak and improve them, but there isn’t a new one every day; at least not one that’s breathtakingly different from the last. Few tanks appear special on the outside (a Phantom is among the exceptions). What goes on inside, however, draws people’s attention.
Pre-built and RBA Coils
When you can make a tank do almost anything you want at just about any temperature, you have a set up that could last you years. Don’t constantly upgrade for your newer, better vaporizers: buy one sub ohm tank that serves them all if you can. One way to ensure you have a versatile tank is to buy one with many available coil replacements. Another is to purchase an RTA with a rebuildable deck.
You don’t hear as much about this mod as you should do because vapers are used to reading about Kanger, Innokin, and other big vaping names from China. The Uwell Crown produces thick, tasty vapor at up to 120 watts using single and vertical dual coil heads of all sorts. Aesthetically, this one suits lots of machines because of its sleek, simple design. Seven pieces come completely apart from each other to facilitate complete cleaning. We see more examples of this at http://www.bestsubohmtank.com/

There is no other tank with as many options as the TFV4 by Smok, makers of the XCube and Magneto mechanical mod. Their sub ohm tank does not come with every compatible coil but you can buy pre-built versions in many resistance levels and metal styles separately, including temperature-sensitive nickel and titanium. The RBA accessory allows advanced vapers to build coils too. Select quad, triple, double, or single coil. Smok uses organic cotton, stainless steel, and high-quality glass to create a durable and versatile tank for use with virtually any vaporizer mod as long as it’s high-watt (up to 140 watts), not a low-powered eGo.

Certain vapers prefer the Arctic, but the Horizon Phantom is unique and exciting with its e juice recycling method, top and side fill choices, RBA, and square windows. Stainless steel covers a Pyrex tube except for these windows. Vapers enjoy a warm, flavorful experience from this well-built 5-ml tank which has recently been upgraded for smoother airflow control.

Choose a 100W setting on your vaporizer and a 0.2-ohm coil or a 40W setting and 0.6 ohms. The Herakles Plus is flexible enough to accommodate a vaper’s daily whims. Experts compare it to the Atlantis which is not a bad thing: if you are going to derive inspiration from any tank-making company, Aspire should be the one. Their coils are interchangeable too. The Delrin-insulated drip tip prevents you from burning your mouth when you apply this user-friendly atomizer to your high-watt device.

The small Subtank has been the most appealing one for consumers but “small” or “mini” is a relative term relating the Subtank Mini to its original size: 4 ml and 22 mm are both substantial enough to fit compact but powerful vaporizers. Colored O-rings add a nice touch. Quality vapor comes from an excellent coil system and organic Japanese cotton coils.

Aspire Atlantis 2
Version two of the famous Atlantis tank is better than version one which was also a well-made offering. The only thing that prevents the Atlantis 2 from rising higher in the table is that it is really only made for moderate wattage levels: about 30W maximum.
Go ahead and try a 40-watt system and that should be okay, but much more and you are pushing the safety and performance limits here. Aspire applies bottom vertical coils for efficient vaporization of thick e juices, stainless steel caps (virtually standard in the industry), and silicon rubber sealing in the drip tip to prevent leakage and burning.

JoyeTech’s second Delta tank is much the same as the first one but adjusted slightly to improve the minute elements of performance that a respected company cares about. Their tank is filled from the bottom: not what most vapers expect now that top-filling designs are more common and obviously so much more convenient. Choose a pre-wrapped coil build using their LVC or Liquid Valve Control system for smooth vapor. Elect to apply LVC Ti or Ni coils when you apply the Delta 2 to your eVic VT. Joye makes these in silver or black to fashionably accessorize a wide variety of vaporizers.

Uwell and Horizon are not the only companies trying to compete with big names on this list: Amigo is also doing its darnedest to keep up. Their Riptide tank does not receive the air time of a Subtank but quality performance and thick vapor should put it on your vaping radar. It is a 4-ml tank with a 100+ watt capacity and 0.3-ohm organic cotton coil options. Adjust airflow through two airflow holes or one.

They don’t just make cute, tiny vaporizers: Eleaf also designs attractive tanks like the Melo. Once more, a tank-making firm has listened to the suggestions of consumers to develop a slightly improved version of their tank. The Melo 2 holds 4.5 ml of vapor liquid filled from the top or side with a twist for no-spill refills. Eleaf provides 5 airflow holes for subtle differences to accommodate your style of vaping and e cig output of up to 100 watts.

They are not as well known for their glass tanks as they are for their vaporizers, but Innokin has made inroads with the Apex (often packaged as part of a Cool Fire IV starter kit). The Apex’s Pyrex tube is not removable, so you can’t replace a broken tube, but it’s also covered in stainless steel for protection. Select a 0.2-ohm, 0.5-ohm, or 2-ohm coil set below a raised intake setting. Innokin refers to this as a no-spill tank because you can fill it from the top.
