The top 5 sub ohm tanks

By: Nicholas King.
Last Updated: January 10th, 2018.

Sub ohm tanks are responsible for transforming the vaping market, ever since the first release back in 2014 these types of tanks have single-handedly kept vapers vaping! To complement the best e-cig or vape mod, you need a good tank, so which are the top 5 Sub-Ohm tanks on the market?

Well to answer that question we have to consider a number of factors like (but not in any specific order):

  1. Capacity – The amount of eliquid the tank holds, higher the better really!
  2. Flavor – How well the tank delivers the flavour from the juice.
  3. Coil longevity – How long a typical coil will last without needing to be replaced.
  4. Airflow – How clear is the airflow and what adjustments can be made.
  5. Cloud content – How much cloud does it produce


So let’s get on with the list of the best sub ohm tanks.


Number 5

The Cleito EXO by Aspire

Aspire Cleito EXO

The Cleito EXO from Aspire is a really well-made tank featuring an easy to adjust top airflow control and made from PCTG and a chemically resistant tank. This is with the aim of enhancing the flavor from your vape and boy does it perform its task!

The Cleito Coils are based on the Clapton coils with large wicking areas which also improve the saturation of the organic cotton, avoiding any of those unnecessary dry hit. The coils come in both 0.2-ohm for wattages around 50-75 watts and 0.4-ohm sizes for wattage around 40-60W.

Overall many users are really happy with the improved flavor generated by using the Aspire Cleito EXO. The only drawback we could see is the limitation of adjusting your airflow.

The FireLuke Sub-Ohm Tank

Number 4

FreeMax FireLuke Sub-Ohm Tank

FreeMax the were one of the first to introduce a bubble like tank system to allow a larger capacity of juice. With a top fill and bottom airflow control along with sextuple coil system this tank delivers in taste, volume of cloud and taste.

The tank holds 5 ml of ejuice and as you would expect has a number of different coil options to choose from.

Nice smooth airflow, but with multiple coils you’re going to need more power so really only a dual 18650 battery mod will do! Check out our list of the best vape mods to help. The tank also comes in a whole range of designs and colors making it easy to match both your mod and personal taste.

Number 3

HorizonTech Arco 2 Sub-Ohm Tank

The Arco 2 Sub-Ohm TankThe Arco 2 Sub-Ohm Tank from HorizinTech is a little secret tank that’s been hiding in the background of most review sites for a longtime but one tank that should be considered!

With this tank, HorizonTech has introduced a parallel 0.2-ohm coil system which produces some of the best flavors from a coil we have seen, not sure if the flax paper they have also installed in the coil makes any difference, but this coil just works!  They have a number of designs available some include a colored glass option whilst others are clear.

Overall an awesome flavor and vapor produced by this tank, their new innovative flax paper parallel coil system is one great producing coil! Make sure you check out our vape deals page as many of these tanks often appear at crazy discounted and cheap prices!

The TFV8 Sub-ohm Tanks from SMOK

Number 2


Whether it’s the Big Baby Beast, X-Baby, TFV8 Cloud Beast, or any other design based on the TFV8 coil these tanks rock and probably one of the most popular out there right now. It’s true that SMOK produces a lot of different version of this tank and are constantly tweaking the design but in our opinion, the TFV8 has it all.

You just have to look at all the starter kits that include this tank, to see how well it works with all sorts of setups! Most of these tanks hold around 5ml of juice, have a top fill system with a top sliding cap to make it even easier and really decent airflow. This particular tank seems to be a favorite with smokers who are looking for the best e-cig to quit smoking as the resistance and coil choice is so vast.

The taste and vapor content are really good here and with an easy to adjust airflow and multiple coils available it doesn’t take long to tune in your perfect vape!

Number 1

The Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank

Uwell Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank

Well as the name suggests this is the 3rd version of this tank, and they seem to have got everything right at last! Well the other version wasn’t that bad either!

Again another 5ml tank which seems to be a common amount with our top 5, it also boasts an anti-leaking top fill system with dual ports to allow air to escape, a simple plug and pull system to replace the coils. The 3 slot adjustable airflow is mounted on the bottom and the coils are the vertical mounted with 3 wicking slots.

Overall this tank produces some of the best flavors and vape clouds on the market, regardless of the e-liquid flavor we tried. Not really sure why as there is no real great innovative technique used here, but sometimes things just work and that’s certainly the case with the Uwell Crown 3 Sub-Ohm Tank.
