Are Vape Tanks Interchangeable?

sub ohm tanks

When you delve into the world of vaping and have been in it for some time, you’ll start to see people building their own devices by customising tanks and mods and it may pique your own interest.

Tanks and mods are pretty interchangeable these days, as long as they have the 510 connection.

The only problem you may run into (depending on tank/mod) is that some mods offer more wattage ranges, and you don’t want a tank that requires so much wattage your mod won’t support it well, causing poor battery life.

How do I know what wattage to use?

This depends on the size of your coil. For example, a 0.25 ohm coil will vaporise best at 15-20 watts. Whereas a 0.4ohm coil performs best when used in higher wattage modes between 23-28 watts. There is a theory called Ohm’s Law which helps you calculate what wattage is best for you to vape at. There are three formulas for this; Current which is I = V / R (voltage divided by resistance) Power which is P = V x I (voltage multiplied by current) and Resistance which is R = V / I (voltage divided by current).

You don’t have to be Einstein to be able to calculate your wattage, a quick Google Search leads to many Ohms Law Calculators like this one here where you insert your Resistance, Current, Power and Voltage to calculate your wattage quickly and efficiently.

Are vape coils universal?

Generally only coils designed for your tank will work. Some coils do work in other thanks but generally no, they do not fit.

Coils usually have an average life of 2 weeks, after this period it is recommended that you change your coil to avoid your e-liquid tasting burnt. Stock up on coils from your local vape shop to avoid this problem.
