Sense Herakles 3 – The Best Sub Ohm Tank for 2018

(100%)

Which Type of Sub-Ohm Tank is Right For You?

For new vapers, sub ohm vaping is the next step for those who are looking to upgrade their vape setup for improved vaping enjoyment. On the other hand, for more advanced vapers, who currently use a sub ohm tank but may feel that their current tank is outdated, here are a few of the best sub-ohm tanks that deliver when it comes to flavor and vapor production.

What to Look For

R

Airflow control

Adequate airflow is also very important to vaping satisfaction. Choose tanks or RDAs with a slot or airflow holes that you can close or open depending on your preference. Too little airflow and you won’t get enough vapor and the draw will seem very “tight”.

R

Simple design

There are a lot of great tanks out there but if you’re new or prefer something easy to use, then stick with tanks that you just fill and go. You won’t need airflow control on the top and bottom if you prefer one setting all the time…wide open. The more features (or bells and whistles) a tank has, the more problems it may give you when you’re still learning.

R

A tank with adequate juice capacity

Juice capacity is a very big factor in how satisfied you’ll be with a sub-ohm tank. If you are frequent vaper or like to fill up a tank to last all day at work, you will need a tank that holds 4-5 mils of juice. A smaller tank that holds 2 mils will work for light vapers and those who don’t mind carrying a bottle of juice for refills during the day.

What to Avoid

Q

Buying a tank too low for your device.

When shopping for a new sub-ohm tank, keep in mind the power or “wattage”  limitations of your battery. Some coil heads (especially those for the TFV8 Cloud Beast) will only engage at levels between 80 and 100W. Anything lower and you won’t get any vapor at all.  Avoid tanks with coils under .02 for devices under 100W.

Q

Avoid buying tanks without researching them first

While vaping is less expensive than buying cigarettes, you can spend a lot of money on vape gear (tanks, coil heads, replacement glass) in the beginning.  One way to make sure you’re spending money wisely is to research things you plan to buy first to make sure it’s a purchase you’ll be satisfied with.  Save yourself the time and frustration by checking it out before forking over the cash.

Q

Avoid buying vape tanks from unknown vendors.

Places like eBay and a few other overstock sites are great places to get good deals on just about anything. But you should only buy your vape gear from places you trust until you become more familiar with tanks, hardware, and accessories.

  • Larger juice capacity (4.5 mils)
  • Compatible with other V-Jet coils (0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 ohms)

The Bottom Line
The Herakles Tank 3 is an upgrade of the original Herakles tank and measures 24mm W x 62.8mm Tall. It has stainless steel construction and a 4.5 mil juice capacity. The larger tank holds more juice and the use of the new V-Jet coils make this tank chuck the vapor. The increased tank size is great for those who are on the go a lot and don’t want to carry juice with them. The hinged flip top fill design is new and makes filling super easy. Just turn and lift up on the cap and it pops open for easy refilling reducing spills and mess. Airflow control is adjustable just like some of the other sub ohm tanks. The tank comes with 3 coil options: a 0.2, 0.4 and a 0.6 ohm coil for customizing your vaping experience to how you like it. The look of this tank is very stylish and comes in 4 colors (stainless steel, black, metallic blue, and rainbow) with contrasting swirl drip tips. Learn More About Our Top Pick

The Bottom Line
The Fireluke Mesh Tank is the first sub ohm tank to use a mesh coil system which produces intense, flavorful vapor. The tank is made of stainless steel and features a completely new way of thinking about coil heads. The mesh coil is rated for 40-90 watts and the cool design on the outside of the tank resembles mesh wire. For design, style options include steel, carbon fiber, and resin available in several eye-catching colors. The tank is very easy to fill and the fill ports are large enough for most bottles and droppers. It is also a top-fill design which makes refilling easy and quick. The top unscrews to reveal the juice ports on either side. They are wide so there is no concern for spills or drips. This is a well-made tank priced at around $30 which is really good for the quality of the tank construction and the mesh coils. This is also a very nice looking tank in the resin option with matching drip tip and is available in a variety of colors in the carbon fiber. Learn More About Our Top Pick

The Bottom Line
Wotofo’s latest sub ohm tank is called The Flow for its smooth airflow, and great flavor. It looks very chic with its rounded edges and simple style. The wide-bore Delrin drip tip fits snugly in the top cap for a tight seal. For those who may not like the Delrin caps, the 510 connection fits standard drip tips as well for a customized look and feel. This sub ohm tank comes with 2 coils and is compatible with SMOK TFV8 Baby and Big Baby Beast Coils for even more versatility. The stock coil design offers improved wicking with 12 juice slots in the coil head assembly to eliminate dry hits. The top-fill design on this tank makes it easy to fill with large juice ports for no-fuss refilling. Learn More About Our Top Pick

Pros
  • 3 mils of juice

  • 0.15 ohm octuple coil head (best at 80-100 watts)
  • Dual adjustable airflow control
Cons
  • May leak on first use
The Bottom Line
The Baby Beast is a mini version of its big brother, the Cloud Beast. It is almost the same in design and function as the larger tank. It has two coil head options like the bigger tank and has the same swivel top fill and adjustable airflow control. The tank size is smaller (holds 3 mils of juice) compared to the larger tank and comes with two coil heads but no RBA. The Baby Beast produces great vapor and delicious flavor with the octuple coil heads and can be vaped at lower wattages while still producing good vapor. The Cloud Beast and Baby Beast are good for semi-new to intermediate vapers because they require very little upkeep and no fiddling with coils or settings. They are designed to be simple and easy to use. Learn More About Our Top Pick

Cons
  • No O-ring on the drip tip
  • Vaping at high wattages will consume juice quickly
  • No variety of coil heads
  • No RBA section
The Bottom Line
The Uwell Valyrian is a sub ohm tank with some interesting features. It looks very similar to other tanks of the same type. It is visually appealing in design with straight, clean lines and classic colors that come with matching drip tips for a custom look. Available in Stainless steel, black, iridescent, sapphire blue and violet with drip tips in a color that matches the color of the tank’s O-rings. It is a very attractive-looking tank and uses a 0.15 ohm dual coil configuration with 2 optional coil attachments meant to improve the flavor by changing the way the air flows through and around the coil. This is a very well-made tank manufactured with high-quality stainless steel. The bottom airflow control, along with the included center pins, create good flavor and large clouds of dense vapor.Some people may not feel the need to use the airflow pins, and flavor and vapor production is not diminished by not using them. It is a very nice looking tank and a good value for the money.It is a cloud beast but also right on point with flavor as well. Learn More About Our Top Pick

  • Good flavor and vapor production
Cons
  • Only available in stainless steel

The Bottom Line
Another great tank from Halo, and this one has bottom adjustable airflow as well as a 5 mil tank for vaping on the go. The bigger tank size makes it easy for planning around the day’s errands without worrying about running out of juice. Just fill and go and it lasts all day with moderate vaping. Airflow and the amount of vapor are controlled by the airflow control valve. Close it down to one or two holes for a tighter, more restricted draw or open it all the way for maximum clouds.It comes 0.5 ohm coils that install into the base of the tank. The Reactor tank is overall a good tank that produces clouds of vapor and delicious flavor. It uses a 0.5 ohm Kanger coil and has very good airflow for dense, billowy clouds. It is a good buy for the money. Learn More About Our Top Pick

  • Organic cotton wrapped coils
  • Easy, top fill design
  • Large juice ports
  • Bottom dual airflow control
  • Includes 1 kanthal, 1 nickel and an RBA section
  • Capable of using a variety of older Kanger coils
Cons
  • Airflow control has a large slot for open and small holes for a restricted airflow. The holes may be a bit small to allow enough airflow for individual preference.
The Bottom Line
Kanger is one of the largest manufacturers of tanks and mods on the market. The Toptank mini is a stylish-looking tank available in your choice of 4 colors and comes with (2) 0.5 ohm coils. The tank is constructed of high-quality 304-grade stainless steel and has a 4 mil juice capacity. The adjustable airflow control allows the user to customize the right amount of air to find that “perfect spot” where they like to vape. The glass tank is protected by a metal cage that resists breakage. This is a great tank for the money and the coils tend to last a good amount of time. Kanger coils are durable and many of their tanks can use the same coils. This sits nicely on a box mod or on a tube mod, either one will make this tank a keeper.You’ll never have to worry about seeing “out of stock” when it comes to buying coils for it. And as if that is not enough, it also has an RBA section for DIYers who like to build coils their way. Learn More About Our Top Pick

Pros
  • Tank is 27 mm in diameter
  • Holds 7 mils of e-liquid
  • Easy top-fill design
  • Compatible with several coil types
  • Comes with an adapter for switching coils
  • Includes a spare frosted acrylic tank
  • Available in stainless steel and black
  • Good performance
  • Reliable and well-made
  • Coil pins for changing the airflow
Cons
  • None
The Bottom Line
The Doolee is a big sub ohm tank very similar in size and design to the Cloud Beast and performs just as well. It produces huge clouds of vapor and has the versatility to use both Smok TFV8 coils and Aspire Cleito 120 coils. Switching the coils require the use of an included adapter and a little fiddling so someone who is good with a screwdriver and likes to vape big clouds will love this tank. This tank would work best on a box mod capable of high wattage vaping with the assortment of compatible coils available. Besides the TFV8 and Aspire Cleito 120, it will also work with Horizon Tech Arco and eLeaf Melo 300 coils. So, there is a lot of versatility with coils for this tank which is a definite plus.This tank is also a little more pricey than the others ($45) but the quality of the craftsmanship, as well as the ability to use compatible coil systems, and stellar performance makes it worth the extra expense.
