WARNING: The products discussed may contain or use nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical; in many cities and a few states, you must be 21 to purchase vaping products and/or products containing nicotine. Please familiarize yourself with and obey the law in your location.
It’s a personal choice whether you’d rather vape from a pen-style vaporizer or a sub-ohm style, but if you prefer a smoother vaping experience with more intense flavor and bigger vapor clouds, using a sub-ohm vape may be right for you. If that piques your interest, then you should check out the HAUS Craft Collection Sub-Ohm Vape Mod Kit.
Included in the HAUS Sub-Ohm Vape Mod-Kit are the black 1300mAh Li-Ion battery handle, a sub-ohm tank with a 0.3ohm coil, a spare 0.3ohm coil, and a USB charging cable.
The sub-ohm vape tank has four main parts: the mouthpiece, the tank tube, the tank coil, and the tank base. Each part pulls apart or unscrews for easy replacement or cleaning.
The black handle that holds the vape’s battery measures 3.5″ long by 1.7 wide by 1.1″ thick (on the fatter side).
With the mouthpiece and tank installed, the vaporizer measures 5.6″ long. On its face, there is a power button, an OLED screen, + and – buttons to change the wattage, and a button to change output charge.
On the bottom of the battery case, there is a microUSB port for charging the vape and a USB port so you can use the vape’s battery to as a portable charger for your mobile device. Since the battery is only 1300 mAh, I don’t recommend you using it this way unless your mobile device is practically dead and you just really need to make a call or send a text.
The OLED screen on the front will give you the status of the battery and let you know when it’s being charged.
After you’ve assembled the sub-ohm vape for the first time by screwing the tank tightly onto the mod’s body, you’ll be ready to fill the tank. If it’s your first time to use the new coil, you’ll need to prime the coil with vaping liquid to avoid burning the dry coil. To do that, you’ll touch the tip of the vape juice bottle to each of the four white dots on the side of the coil. Let it soak in for a couple of minutes, and then you’ll be ready to fill the tank.
You’ll know when it’s time to change coils when you notice a change in vapor output or flavor.
It’s important to get the vape juice into the narrow tank without spilling or overfilling.
I was sent a selection of HAUS Craft Collection Vape Juices to try. Each contains varying amounts of nicotine —these are either 4mg or 3mg. One of the cool things about trying to quit smoking while vaping is that you can work toward weaning yourself off nicotine; start with the 4mg if you are a regular smoker, go down to the 3mg when you can, and eventually work your way to lower nicotine amounts. You can do this at your own pace, with no stress, and eventually, you may find that you can do without the nicotine.
A window on the side of the tank lets you keep track of the fluid level.
You can adjust the airflow by twisting the bottom of the tank.
Clicking the power button five times will turn the vaporizer on; at that time it will tell you the size coil (in this case 0.3ohm), the voltage will also display; depending upon the juice you are using, you can raise or lower the voltage to adjust the flavor.
The HAUS Sub-Ohm Vape Mod Kit produces huge vaporizer clouds; my daughter says that if she had gone into a store looking for a sub-ohm kit, at $50 this is the one she would buy. It doesn’t leak, it makes big clouds so she feels like she is actually getting something, the vape juices are generously sized at 30mL and priced competitively, and she says they taste good (but she would prefer a juice with no nicotine in it). She also feels that this is a great kit for someone who is new to sub-ohm vaping because this set is not intimidating and it is easy to operate. The only con she has about the kit is the tank; she says it is easy to fill but it’s difficult to see when you should stop; if you overfill it, you’ll have a bit of cleanup to do. The battery lasts throughout a full day of vaping, but if you are a heavy user the tank may seem a bit small.
