The Best Vape Tanks of 2020

As vaping products continue to evolve and innovate, the tank remains a fundamental component for many devices and an iconic element of the vaper lifestyle. A delivery system for eliquid vapour, and a component that is highly customisable, no two tanks are set up the same way owing to their ability to adapt and adjust to the individual vaper’s needs and style.

With the recent arrival of the now ubiquitous pod vape, pods and tanks can often be confused for each other as they largely do the same job in a similar way. But to explore what we think have been the best vape tanks so far in 2020, we’re going to focus on classic sub-ohms tanks and why they deliver such a satisfying and rewarding experience for millions of vapers.

What is a Vape Tank?

Also known as a clearomiser, tanks are in essence a chamber that contains your eliquid. Within that chamber is a wire coil, that acts like an element in a kettle. The coil is heated by an electric current from the battery, which in turn heats up the e-liquid in the pod or tank producing vapour that can be inhaled.

Other components that make up a classic tank are a mouthpiece or ‘drip tip’, a 510 connector which is the threaded connection that allows any tank to be paired with any mod (the battery) so long as they share a 510 connection, an adjustable airflow ring and a refill port for topping up the chamber with eliquid. From a few core elements, vape tanks have emerged in many styles and configurations.

What E-liquids should you use with Vape Tanks?

Unlike pods kits which commonly use eliquids of a thinner consistency such as high-PG, 50/50 and nicotine salts e-liquids, tanks fall into the realm of sub-ohm vaping which typically use thicker, High-VG eliquids.

These eliquids require coils of a lower electrical resistance – below 1.0ohms, hence the term ‘sub-ohm’ – that can fire at higher power outputs, producing thick, dense clouds, fantastic flavour and a smooth, comfortable throat hit.

That’s why tanks are commonly paired with higher power mods that can fire between 40 watts and even up to 240 watts to get the most performance out of the tank and the coil.
