High Voltage Tank Review | Sub Ohm HVT Breakdown
The High Voltage Tank is designed as another top contender to the sub-ohm throne, introducing an innovative new airflow system to make every drop of its huge 5mL capacity a full-flavored experience.
This tank is built for serious cloud chasers, featuring some of the widest adjustable airflow on the market and Japanese cotton-based .2 ohm coils as well as a copper pin for ideal conductivity with high-powered mods.
Of course, reading down the list of specs for it is one thing, but only our High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank Review can decide if this high profile unit can live up to its equally high promise.
High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank Specs
- Pyrex Glass Tank with Stainless Steel Frame
- 22mm diameter
- 5ml capacity
- .2 ohm coils (rated for up to 100 watts)
- Dynamic Air Flow Adjustment System (options ranging between .5mm to 3mm)
- Wide Bore Drip Tip (6.5mm air flow slot)
What’s New- High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank
The High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank is the first of its kind to offer a prebuilt dual coil with standard 0.2 ohm resistance.
Its massive 5mL capacity means you spend more time vaping and less time refilling, and its three integrated airflow holes at the base are built to allow use at up to 100w in cool, controlled comfort.
As you might expect from a device with this level of task-specific engineering, the High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank is extremely effective at what it does.
This tank pumps out a seemingly unlimited supply of tantalizingly warm and flavorful vapor at a wide range of wattage settings, but we found the performance was at its absolute peak when we ran our mods between 50 and 75 watts.
We did get a few burnt-tasting hits at levels approaching 100w, but the vapor gets pretty well heated by then anyway so it might be best to stick with slightly lower levels.
Airflow on the High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank is pretty incredible, with the multiple stage airflow adjustment system serving to make this unit a great choice for rippers who like a tight pull as well as those who prefer a wide open draw.
We were able to fire down to 0.2 ohms just like the box said, and although the High Voltage uses a very specific type of coil which we could envision being somewhat difficult to find in brick and mortar stores, the performance level they exhibit makes a few days’ wait for online delivery well worth it.
Build quality on the High Voltage Sub Ohm tank is good, with its polished profile balanced by an overall utilitarian design.
Machining on the High Voltage is also decent with only minor scratches on the model we tested, but to its credit the tank provided a flush fit with most of our standby mods.
Disassembling for cleaning can take a bit of practice, but it’s a worthwhile skill to learn if you’re interested in keeping your High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank in the best possible shape.
Smok M80 Plus Box Mod
It features 3 different operating modes to allow standard variable wattage, mechanical mod functionality or a temperature control mod.
We took an extended look at the SMOK M80 Plus here on BC, so check it out to read more about its long list of features.
This Pioneer4You mod is a great choice for a dedicated sub ohm tank like the High Voltage.
It features durable aluminum construction, a temperature control mode, and an available firmware upgrade can increase the vaping power of this mod to a whopping 200w!
The iPV3 Li-165w is another of the high quality mods that earned the spotlight around here, so if you’re interested in owning this fine unit, why not read our full review first?
The Arctic Tank is another model that’s all about performance and airflow.
This Horizon Tech unit features an integrated cooling system that allows safe use at up to 100 watts, and its 4 adjustable airflow valves help generate an impressive amount of vapor with every draw.
Read more about this top-level tank in the full BC review of the Arctic Tank.
There will always be challengers, but the Kanger Subtank retains its status in the sub-ohm game due to being the first to really nail the concept.
Big flavor, excellent airflow and an optional RDA mode have made the Subtank and its successors into favorites within the vaping community, so it garners fairly frequent mention in comparison to other top sub-ohm tanks.
Check out our full length review of the vaunted Kanger Subtank to discover what makes the original the standard.
We Would Have Liked to See…
There’s not much to complain about when considering the active function of the High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank, as it exhibits some of the best performance on the market.
That said, including a replacement glass with tanks has become a bit of a goodwill gesture between manufacturer and consumer, and we were a tiny bit hurt to see there was none packaged with this tank.
Perhaps that can be taken as a statement of confidence.
We also have to ding the High Voltage for the few dry hits it gave out near the top of its operational wattage range.
Sure, the experience is amazing at most settings, but if you say you’re a 100 watt tank, people are going to call you out on it.
Overall, there’s a lot to like about the High Voltage Sub Ohm Tank.
Dense clouds of great flavor are pretty much the gold standard of sub-ohm vaping, and on the performance front the High Voltage definitely delivers.
Maintenance can be a bit tricky the first few times and the unit might have given itself about 15 watts too much credit in the ratings department, but the High Voltage is an overall outstanding tank which intermediate and advanced vapers will find themselves happy to own.
