Just Bought a Subox Mini
Hello all. I am brand new to this forum, as well as the vaping world. I just bought the Subox mini, but did not realize the tank simply slides off of the box, instead of screwing on. This seems like it might be prone to leekage. Does the Subox support screw on tanks, or only the slide on?

Welcome to TVF Lanny.

Lanny, I'm as confused as you are - the SUBOX Mini comes with the Subtank mini - it screws on the top of the "box" called the "mod" - you just need to be sure the tank is assembled properly - check out a few youtube videos on it - here is one that may help:

RE: Just Bought a Subox Mini
Thanks for the warm welcome you guys. I finally figured out how the tank works, but it still seems leak prone to me, so I would like to upgrade at some point. It seems to me that standard tanks work best around 20 watts, and sub-ohm tanks work best at 70 watts and above. What are examples of a few tanks that work best around 35 or 40 watts? Also, if I'm looking for direct lung, are sub-ohm tanks my only option?

Great tank. Ceramic or clapton coil are good. Close off the airflow a bit and vape around 40 watts.

The power you use, depends on the resistance of the coil, not the tank. I'd get coils around .5 Ohms. There are so many tanks out there it's hard to recommend just one. My fav is the original Uwell Crown. A good inexpensive choice is the Cleito 120.

RE: Just Bought a Subox Mini
The Arctic tank is a great one, though a bit old now. With 0.5 ohm coils it's nice around 40-60W. The Atlantis is another good one which can use 0.5 ohm coils around 30-50W. Those are just the ones I have experience with though, and I'm sure there are many other good ones out there. That Ultimo that Paul recommended looks really nice, and I've heard great things about the Crown, Cleito and iSub too. Seems you can't really go wrong with any of these folks' suggestions Wink
