Recommendations on various tanks, suitable for both beginner and intermediate vapers

Aesthetics & Form

When it comes to appearance, there are differences within the vast array of clearomisers, sub ohm tanks and rebuildable atomiser tanks. However, they can be fairly subtle, and often pertain only to size; both in terms of diameter and height.

The methods used to house the coil and location may change, but overall most tend to have a universal form factor. 

Older eGo or CE style clearomisers, which are far less common these days, are the general exception.

Features & Control

Tanks, irrespective of type, are powered by the battery and or power supply unit. That is where the wattage and or voltage settings are made.

The only real feature on tanks is Air Flow control or AFC. This controls the type of draw, be it airy or more restrictive like smoking, and is generally a metal ring that one turns to produce various sized openings.

The diagrams below represent the common configurations for both clearomiser tanks and atomiser coils.



Performance differs greatly among various tanks, but it is the atomiser coil that has the most bearing on overall vapour and flavour production.

As a rule, lower ohm coils produce significantly more vapour, particularly when using a high VG content.

Coils come in various resistances and are often manufactured for a specific tank. Vapers who use higher-end rebuildable tanks make their own coils and wicks, hence the term rebuildable.
