Sub ohm vaping is where the atomizer coil has a resistance of less than 1 ohm. This means that it’s the atomizer that determines if you are subohm vaping, not the mod. However not all mods can handle coils with resistances under 1 ohm. This means that this article is really about the best sub ohm compatible mods as well as sub ohm kits than include subohm tanks.

Best Beginner Sub Ohm Mod
Eleaf iStick TC40 Box Mod kit $34.95
At $24.95 the Eleaf iStick TC40 is a great entry level sub ohm box mod. It gives you a full range of subohm options; in temperature control mode you can use atomizers with a resistance of between 0.1 ohm and 1.0 ohm, in Watt mode you an use atomizers with resistances between 0.2 ohm and 2.5 ohm. You won’t find any other mods that can work with coils with resistances as low as 1 ohm for a price as good as $24.95.
A good atomizer to use with this mod would be the Kanger Subtank Mini which is compact while still managing to hold 4.5ml of e-juice. The Subtank Mini is known for its huge clouds and great flavor. The 4.5ml juice capacity combined with the iStick’s 2600mAh built in battery means you can have long vaping sessions without refilling or recharging.
The compact size of the iStick TC40 will be particularly attractive to beginners, it easily fits in the palm of your hand. The OLED screen is also helpful, displaying battery life, coil resistance, and other details. The safety features of the iStick will be reassuring for those new to subohm vaping; they include over discharge protection, low voltage protection, and automatic shutoff.
The output wattage is between 1W and 40W and the temperature can be adjusted between 200˚F and 600˚F.
Best Sub Ohm Mod for Clouds
IPV4S 120W Box Mod by Pioneer4you $62.95
One of the best sub ohm tanks on the market is the Aspire Triton 2 and the IPV4S is one of the best sub ohm mods you can use with it.
The standard atomizer resistance for this mod is 0.1ohm to 3.0 ohm but switch it to joules mode and you can use atomizers with a resistance as low as 0.05 ohm and up to 0.30ohm.
The temperature control mode now has a range of 212˚F to 572˚F and can handle both titanium and nickel coils. Space for two 18650 batteries means longer vaping sessions than most other mods. The IPV4S has a good wattage range of 10W to 120W and an output voltage range of 1V – 7V.
This is a high end mod and it has the most extensive safety features that you will find on any vaping mod; high input voltage warning, low voltage protection,temperature overheat protection, low resistance protection, reverse battery protection, and output short circuit protection.
Best mechanical mod for sub ohm vaping
Tugboat Mod V2 by Flawless – $147.95
Mechanical mods for subohm vaping can be very dangerous. They don’t have the automated protection that regulated mods have that stop your firing atomizers that are too low or too high resistance. There is also no protection for voltages that are too low or too high. You will need to use high Amp batteries with a subohm setup so as to not overheat them.
Mech mods will fire with any coil so you can use any mechanical mod (don’t risk using coils with a resistance below .2 ohms). This means there is no clear best sub ohm mod, it will come down to personal preference for size, build quality, price, and design.
One mech mod that can be recommended is the Tugboat V2 mechanical mod. It comes in a whole range of awesome designs and can be used with any Tugboat deck.
