Best UK Sub-Ohm Tanks 2020/2021
The market for sub-ohm tanks is always competitive and ever changing with manufacturers trying to battle it out and create the best tank that can accommodate both clouds and flavour production. Sub-Ohm tanks have certainly improved in recent years in terms of flavour and many tanks can now create a flavour experience that is close to an RDA/RTA. Below are our 5 top picks for Best Sub-Ohm Tank of 2021
Our Top 5 Picks
Valyrian 2 Pro by Uwell
The Valyrian 2 Pro is the bigger brother of the original Valriyan 2 tank and continues to be favourite amongst cloud and flavour chasers. It features a larger airflow than the Valyrian 2 and supports an 810 drip tip which allows it to create larger clouds. The beauty of the V2 Pro is that it can operate at higher wattages and produce dense clouds without compromising the quality of the flavour. A real achievement by Uwell. In terms of leakages, thanks to Uwell’s patented condensation chambers, both the Valyrian 2 and Valyrian 2 Pro do not suffer from any major leaking problems.
- Great Flavour
- Large Clouds
- Prolonged Coil Life
- Easy to Fill
- Not Prone to Leak
- Increased E-Liquid Usage (However, not bad for a high wattage tank)
- All Coils Operate at High Wattages – No Low Wattage Option
- High Wattage Coils Reduce Battery Life
The Wirice Launcher Tank
Unlike the Valyrian Series by Uwell, The Launcher is able to support both medium & high wattage outputs through the use of the W801 & W802 coil heads. Whilst the Launcher may not be the biggest cloud creator, it still packs a punch and its flavour production is up their with the best. Wirice revolutionised the coil changing method with the Launcher and it allows users to change coils without the need of detaching their tank or getting their hands messy.
- Easy No Spill & Clean Coil Changes
- Great Flavour
- Supports Medium to High Wattages
- W801 Wattage Guidance Slightly Too High (Max 65W)
- Drip Tip Too Close to Filling Hole – Only Really a Problem with 100ml Bottles
- Not the Best for Cloud Chasers
The Zeus Mesh Tank by Geek Vape
The Zeus Mesh Tank by Geek Vape adopts the same design as the Zeus RTA. This in turn makes it leak resistant due to the fact that Geek Vape have placed the airflow on the top, rather than the bottom of the tank. The combination of a large top airflow and wide 810 drip tip allows the Zeus Tank to create huge clouds and the overall experience of it is not far off it’s RTA cousin. Furthermore, it also has a plug n play coil system which prevents the Z mesh coils from getting cross threaded and generally makes the overall coil change experience a little cleaner.
- Plug N Play Coil Changes
- Leak Resistant Design
- Solid Overall Construction
- Shorter Coil Life Span When Compared to The Launcher & Valyrian 2
- Larger Clouds Compromise Flavour (Mainly with Z 0.2ohm Coil)
- Heavy Juice Usage
The Aspire Guroo Tank
Aspire’s influence on the Sub-Ohm tank sector maybe a little less when compared to the likes of Uwell & Geek Vape. However, they did revitalise the sector with the release of the Cleito tank and they’ve certainly added to it with The Aspire Guroo Tank. Similar to the Wirice Launcher Tank, the Guroo Tank attempted to make the coil changing process as simple as possible. Aspire developed the world’s first Attach-Pull Release Tank with the Guroo which enables users to detach and release coils without losing their juice or getting their hands saturated in e-liquid. In terms of flavour and cloud quality, it may not be the ultimate beast for cloud chasers, however, it can still produce large clouds where users can get the full taste of their e-liquid.
- No Spill Easy Coil Change
- Decent Clouds
- Smooth Airflow
- Good Quality Flavour Creation
- Not the Quietist of Tanks
- Not The Best for Those Looking for Huge Clouds. However, Flavour Quality Certainly Makes Up for It.
VooPoo PnP Pod Tank
VooPoo have almost struck the whole industry with a bolt of lighting, repeatedly releasing high quality pod systems and other vape devices. The PnP Pods became extremely popular after the release of the original Vinic Pod System. VooPoo eventually went on to release the PnP Pod Tank which allowed the PnP Pods to be utilised on any device that supports a 510 connection. Whilst the PnP Tank can be used as a direct to lung or mouth to lung tank, it is ideally suited to the sub-ohm PnP coils due to the airflow system of the tank. When paired with the VM5, VM6 & VM1 coil heads, the PnP Tank can create a traditional sub-ohm experience, blasting clouds of flavour. The biggest draw back which puts this tank into 5th place is the issue of leaking. The PnP Pods do leak a lot more than your regular sub-ohm tanks. However, most pods using the plug and play system do get the same problem. Another weakness is that the PnP coils can lose flavour pretty quickly in comparison to other sub-ohm tanks, for example, the Valyrian 2.
- Excellent Retail Price
- Cheap to Maintain
- Good Overall Coil Life
- Leaking Issues
- Coils Can Lose Flavour Relatively Quickly
- Plastic Pods Can Start to Erode
The Sub-Ohm market may have lost a little ground in the UK with the rise in popularity of pod systems and high strength nic salts. Nevertheless, manufacturers still continue to innovate and release new sub-ohm tanks on a regular basis. Recently, as you can see from Wirice and Aspire, the aim at the moment seems to be to improve the performance of sub-ohm tanks by paying particular attention to the method involved in changing coils.
