Although mouth-to-lung vaping is often thought of as the new-age smoking alternative, sub-ohm vaping is where it all began. Ideal for the enthusiasts and hobbyists, sub-ohm vaping involves pairing high-VG e-liquids with a powerful vape kit to produce impressive vapour production, warm clouds and great flavour. It’s exciting, eye-catching and the amount of versatility that these kits offer allow for vapers to really personalise and customise how they vape.
Vapers have an almost endless array of sub-ohm vape kits to choose from today, and whilst this can be very exciting, it can also be a very confusing world to enter. On top of this, with vaping’s popularity ever-increasing, the technology that goes into these vape mods and sub-ohm tanks gets better year on year.
As vape enthusiasts ourselves here at Legion of Vapers, we’re always trying out different products to make sure we’ve got the low-down on the latest and greatest vapes. We’ve put together our list of the best sub-ohm kits for 2022 from brands like Geekvape, Voopoo, Vaporesso and many more.
Geekvape Aegis Legend 2
Few brands are quite as well acquainted with sub-ohm vaping as Geekvape are. They are most well-known for their durability, style and power, and the GeekVape Aegis Legend 2 vape kit is no different. This kit comes with the Aegis L200 mod and Geekvape Z sub-ohm tank for a combination that is hard to beat, and the vape mod itself is an absolute powerhouse, requiring dual 18650 batteries for a max power output of 200W.
Geekvape have kitted out the Aegis Legend 2 with a variety of different output modes for increased control and customisation over your sub-ohm vaping, including temperature control mode, variable power curve, bypass mode and more! Built into the vape mod is a new and improved 1.03 OLED screen, displaying all of your key vaping information in gorgeous clarity. It shows your battery life, different modes, wattage and you even have the ability to customise what the screen shows.
If this wasn’t enough, the L200 vape mod is also designed with tri-proof technology to make it extremely resistant to water, dust and accidental drops, but its qualities do not end there. The Geekvape Z sub-ohm tank is made from high-quality materials and has an adjustable airflow for precision vaping. It is compatible with Geekvape’s Z mesh coils which come in a variety of different resistances. This is without a doubt one of the best vape tanks on the market.
This sub-ohm vape kit gets two thumbs up from us all the way!

Uwell Valyrian 3 Vape Kit
Uwell are giants in the vaping game, and whilst typically known for their quality MTL vape kits, the Valyrian 3 stands tall and proud as one of the most powerful and striking sub-ohm vape kits on this list. Getting its name from the immense mythical creatures, this vape kit will have you exhaling massive clouds of vapour that will make you look like a fire-breathing dragon yourself!
With a 5-220W variable wattage, vapers have an enormous range of power to choose from. The Valyrian 3 sub-ohm tank also supports this power vape mod thanks to its upgraded design and features. Uwell have improved upon the airflow to allow for smoother drags and more vapour to be inhaled. It is also designed with PRO-FOCS technology that their mouth-to-lung vape kits have for greater flavour, and who doesn’t love that?
Not only does it perform well, but it looks stunning too. The leather on the mod is designed to look like dragon scales, and the unique metal chassis adds to the sense of elegance and power. The LED screen is stunning, providing a crystal clear look at all the vaping information you need.
It’s fair to say this vape mod and sub-ohm tank from Uwell combined to make a very special, unique and powerful vape kit.

Smok RPM 5
The Smok RPM 5 pod kit is a compact, yet powerful sub-ohm device. It might not boast the same size as some of the other sub-ohm vape kits on this list, but don’t let that trick you into thinking the Smok RPM 5 isn’t capable of impressive vapour production. This pod kit from Smok comes with two 0.15ohm and 0.23ohm coils from the RPM 3 range, and with a max output of 80w you can guarantee some great clouds.
The RPM 5 also looks great too. It has a slim build that fits nicely in the hand thanks to the ergonomic and stylish leather handgrip. A small OLED is on the face of the pod kit, displaying all your essential vaping information such as your wattage, puff counter, battery life.
Instead of using a sub-ohm tank, this mod is only compatible with Smok RPM5 replacement pods that click into the top of the mod. For some sub-ohm vapers, this might be a major con as you prefer using vape tanks and the features that come with this. However, these pods very much resemble a sub-ohm tank and are slightly more straightforward meaning they don’t require as much experience to use. Featuring a top-filling mechanism for quick and easy refills and a 2ml e-liquid capacity, these pods are easy to use and will keep you vaping all day long. This makes this sub-ohm kit more ideal for first time sub-ohm vapers, or those who just want a simple, more compact sub-ohm vape kit.
- Simplified design for ease of use
- Feels good in the hand and lightweight
- Compact, yet impressively powerful
- Variable wattage mode
Voopoo Drag X Pod Kit

Thanks to the GENE.TT chipset, the Voopoo Drag X provides a range of different modes that make it the ideal vape kit for a more experienced sub-ohm vaper. It comes with a variable wattage feature allowing vapers to adjust the power output to their preference to create a vaping experience that suits them. A standout feature that this chip provides is Score Mode, a feature that’s unique to the Drag X itself which rates your cloud production making this pod kit great for cloud-chasing.
Another really clever feature that Voopoo have built into this vape kit is the pod itself. It can function as a pod with the Drag X, or you have the option to attach a 510 adapter to turn it into a sub-ohm tank making it compatible with a range of other vape mods. Voopoo have also designed this with a 2ml e-liquid capacity and a smart magnetic connector, making refilling a breeze.
- An interactive and fun score mode
- Straightward design and layout
- Versatility to act as a pod of vape tank

Features of this vape mod include a unique coil+ and refresh mode that help to prolong your coil life and provide a more consistent flavour experience. The refresh mode pulses the coil at around 40% of the wattage that you have selected after you take a drag, helping to refresh the coil and provide better flavour by stopping any e-liquid residue building up.
This vape kit comes with the Z-Force tank, a sub-ohm tank that is sure to please all DTL vaping enthusiasts. It is designed with a high-quality airflow control allowing users to accurately control the airflow and their inhales. Innokin have also designed this sub-ohm tank with an easy quick-slide refill mechanism and an e-liquid flow control that stops the e-liquid from leaking when replacing the coil.

Standing at just 9.3cm tall, it can fill easily into your pocket, bag or handbag without taking up much space at all. Despite its super compact size, it can still produce some impressive clouds thanks to its 80W max output and 2000mAh built-in battery. This also provides a long-lasting battery life to keep you vaping away all day long without having to worry about recharging your vape device.
This pod vape kit packs out with features to help you personalise your vaping experience such as an easy to use airflow control ring and a small and an subtle, yet useful OLED screen on the side of the vape device. It is also the first device in this range that Smok has featured an adjustable airflow with which makes this pod kit an absolute winner for first time sub-ohm vapers.

Vaporesso GEN 200 Vape Kit
Vaporesso have built this vape mod to be powerful, yet simple in both design and usability. This vape mod is perfect for experienced vapers who are looking for a high-powered device that can produce amazing clouds of vapour.

This sub-ohm vape kit comes with the Vaporesso iTank that boasts an XL e-liquid capacity for superior sub-ohm vaping. One feature that Vaporesso really impressed us with here was the self-cleaning e-juice system in order to keep the tank and coils lasting longer and producing better flavour. This sub-ohm tank also features a turbo airflow system, which can then be combined with the adjustable airflow for even bigger inhales and vapour production.
The box mod features a bright OLED screen that displays and comes with a variety of safety features like overheat protection and short-circuit protection. Despite its size, power and feature-rich nature, a standout point for this vape kit is the fact that it’s 40% lighter than its previous model, making it great for carrying around without weighing you down. This is a major factor why it’s made this list, because not everyone wants to carry a hefty device with them, but they also don’t want to have to sacrifice power in order to do so. If that sounds like you, then we believe the GEN 200 to be right up your street.
- Powerful sub-ohm vape
- Huge clouds
- Extremely lightweight despite size and power
- Easy to use
Smok Vape Pen V2
We know, another mention for Smok (the last one, promise). The SMOK vape pen V2 makes the list because it is an excellent starter kit for sub-ohm vaping. It has a very simple design and not many features to it, which may be a downside for those more experienced sub-ohm vapers, but for the newbies, it is the ideal choice. This starter kit comes with two 0.15ohm mesh coils, and with a 60W max output you can be sure you’ll experience some big cloud production.
It features a single button design that makes it simple to use, and as it contains no screen, new vapers don’t have to worry about being overwhelmed or confused with a tonne of vaping information that they don’t understand.
