Choosing the very best sub-ohm tank, one released in 2019, is NOT an easy job. What some lack in liquid capacity they make up for in flavor fidelity, what some lack in vapor production they make up for with coil longevity. While there’s still no “perfect” tank on the market, 2019 sees us coming closer than ever before, thanks to a few surprising contenders, and one of the most obvious entries we’ve experienced (in other words, it’s awesome).


These lists are never unanimous, but for once, there was no argument about the ones that made our final list of 2019. See if you agree, starting…….. now!

HellVape Fat Rabbit Sub-Ohm Tank

PACKAGING - HELLVAPE X HEATHEN FAT RABBIT SUB-OHM TANKThe Hellvape FAT RABBIT Sub-Ohm Tank, made in collaboration with Vapin Heathen, deploys a myriad of specialized Mesh and Quad OCC coils, 5mL maximum capacity, and a dynamic top and bottom airflow control.


Sound familiar? Well, it won’t seem that way once you see the Fat Rabbit — one of the most unique looking tanks on this, or any list. But don’t be fooled by the celebrity endorsements and “tough” imagery on the box the Fat Rabbit is laser-focused on flavor, rather than just cloud production. Sure, the tank can kick out some thick plumes of vapor, but based on the smaller coil head format and narrowish chimney, the Rabbit is really meant for more dignified vaping pursuits.


We are genuinely surprised by how strong a flavor performer the Fat Rabbit turned out to be. While Hellvape always makes flavorful products, it seemed like this tank was really designed for cloudy pursuits. But we were wrong in assuming that, because — while the Fat Rabbit can chuck some vapor, this tank was meant to bring out the best from your e-liquids, which it does time and time again.

Innokin Zlide D22 MTL Tank

TANK - MTL - INNOKIN ZLIDE TUBE 16W STARTER KITSimple, unadulterated flavor. This is what Innokin intended for the Zlide, making it a real winner for MTL vapers. While it seems like more and more atomizers are coming to market with multiple uses for a wider range of users, the Zlide honors its famous endorsers by staying true to the mouth-to-lung style of vaping.

I suppose you could try and put the Zlide to work as a restricted lung atomizer, since it’s technically compatible with Innokin’s entire Z-Coil lineup, but if you want this kit to work as intended, stick to MTL use and you won’t be disappointed.

No matter which of the Z-Coils you use, you’ll enjoy flawless wicking, flavor and vapor, even when chain vaping. The Z-Coils have always been impressive, but using them in the Zlide D22 might be the best use case for the series to date.

Innokin ZLIDE D22 Tank Features:

  • Collaboration with Phil Busardo, Dimitris Agrafiotis, and Innokin
  • 22mm Diameter
  • 2mL Juice Capacity

EHPro Raptor Sub-Ohm Tank

Many Call This Tank the BEST Sub-Ohm Ever!

Gunmetal - EHPRO Raptor Sub-Ohm Tank ReviewOne of the biggest surprises of the year was the high-performing EHPro Raptor sub-ohm tank. Maybe it’s a little derivative of some market leaders, if we think of things in terms of evolution, maybe it’s only right that my current favorite sub-ohm tank is the HorizonTech Falcon, because falcons evolved from — you guessed it — raptors.


Durability is the name of the game here, and the Raptor big time. Most sub-ohm coils have lifespans that can be measured in days and hours, not weeks. Yet the Raptor heads gave me nearly two weeks of moderate-to-heavy vaping before tapping out.


For all the tanks that cross our desks — including some really top-tier devices — only a few really make a lasting impression on us. The HorizonTech Falcon King might be the market leader, but the EHPro Raptor shares an awful lot of the same DNA, making for an intense, flavorful, enjoyable vape experience that no sub-ohm fan should miss.


EHPro RAPTOR Sub-Ohm Tank Features:

  • 25mm Diameter
  • 6mL Bubble Glass Capacity
  • 4mL Standard Glass Capacity
  • Quartz Glass Reinforcement

  • 360° Coil Airflow
  • Dual Slotted Bottom Airflow Control Ring

GeekVape ZEUS Sub-Ohm Tank

Geek Vape Zeus X RTA Review – Spinfuel VAPECoils are the lifeblood of any sub-ohm tank, and the Zeus MeshZ coil heads blew me away with the amount of rich, nuanced flavor and room-filling vapor this tank produced right out of the gate. Within minutes of priming the 0.4 and 0.2-ohm mesh heads, I had two Aegis Legends cranking simultaneous plumes of goodness, with both offering similar levels of performance.

In addition to being a different-looking atomizer, the plug-and-play heads sit in the Zeus tank securely, never once leaking or offering any odd misfires during my testing. I just set them, filled and enjoyed, making the Zeus a fantastic proposition for any sub-ohm vaper.

Unlike most companion tanks from kits we review, we highly recommend seeking out the Zeus on its own when you’re in the market for a new sub-ohm tank.

Geek Vape Zeus Sub-Ohm Tank Features:

  • 26mm Diameter
  • 5mL Juice Capacity
  • 5mL Replacement Glass Capacity
  • Silica Glass Reinforcement

Vaporesso SKRR-S Tank

SKKR TANK - Vaporesso GEN TC 220W Starter Kit ReviewThe SKRR-S is a fantastic sub-ohm tank with a range of great coils to choose from along the way. Whether you like the proven performance of those nubby little GT heads, or prefer a modern mesh alternative, this is what versatility looks like in 2019.

Maybe the high-flow, high-thirst coils makes juice consumption a concern, but the performance is too good to care. Just have some e-liquid on you at all times when vaping the SKRR-S.

Of the two included coils, the QF mesh head provided the higher flavor clarity than the QF Strip, but both are quite good and will keep you satisfied for a lot longer than you’d expect given the massive, room-filling cloud production.

More importantly, all of this flavor and vapor comes with zero leaking and a much-improved screw-off cap. While I always prefer a flip-top fill system for convenience, this is a small price to pay for top-tier performance.

Vaporesso SKRR-S 26mm Sub-Ohm Tank:

  • 26mm Diameter
  • 30mm Diameter At Widest Point
  • 8mL Max Juice Capacity
  • Superior Stainless Steel Construction
  • Pyrex Glass Reinforcement
  • Quadflow QF Air Distribution System
  • Vaporesso QF Coil System – Flax & Cotton Wicks

  • 510 Connection


  • 1 SKRR Sub-Ohm Tank

  • 1 0.15ohm QF Strip Coil
  • 1 0.5ohm QF CCELL SS316L Coil

Uwell Valyrian II Sub-Ohm Tank

Flip Top UWELL VALYRIAN II 2 300W STARTER KITAnyone who’s read our tank reviews over the last few years is well-aware of our love of the original Uwell Valyrian sub-ohm tank. Even if we didn’t exactly agree on the usefulness of the tube inserts, the Valyrian was nonetheless a high-performing sub-ohm leader that really didn’t need gimmicks to stand out from the crowd.

Well, I feel the exact same way about the Valyrian II as I did about the original. This larger, higher-capacity tank takes everything that worked on its predecessor and improves on it. With 6mL of juice capacity, self-cleaning Pro-FOCS flavor technology and outstanding coils, this behemoth doesn’t sacrifice an ounce of flavor, no matter its massive size.

Other than some weird coil resistance discrepancies — we suggest running your mods 10-15 watts LOWER than the suggested ratings before venturing higher, to see where your sweet spot might be — this is about as reliable as sub-ohm tanks get.

Bottom line — the Valyrian II tank is a keeper, no matter your vaping desire. If its flavor you want, it delivers in style. If you want clouds, prepare to vent your room. If you want long-lasting coils that deliver maximum value for the dollar, Uwell is on top of their game here.

Uwell Valyrian II 2 Sub-Ohm Tank Features:

  • 29mm Diameter
  • 6mL Standard Juice Capacity
  • Pyrex Glass Reinforcement
  • Stainless Steel & Pyrex Glass Construction
  • Self Cleaning Technology
  • Top Fill System – Flip Top Design
  • Uwell Valyrian II 2 Coil Series
  • 15ohm Quadruple Coil
  • 32ohm Single Coil
  • 14ohm Dual Meshed Coil
  • 16ohm Triple Meshed Coil
  • Threaded Coil Connection
  • Pro-FOCS Flavor Tasting Technology
  • Gold-Plated 810 Connection

FreeMax Fireluke 2 Sub-Ohm Tank

BRASS COLOR - FREEMAX FIRELUKE 2 MESH SUB-OHM TANKLet me repeat a corny line from my review: When is a sub-ohm tank not a sub-ohm tank? When it’s a work of art. Yeah, I just wrote that, and I’d do it again. For the last few years, after using hundreds of tanks and RTAs, only a handful still get regular use. And more than one of them have “Freemax” written on the side. And the Freemax Fireluke 2 – a shining example of how to do this whole “vaping thing” correctly.


I’m going to say what sub-ohm tank enthusiasts have wanted to hear for years – the line between RDA and sub-ohm tank flavor is now seriously blurred. Fight me on this if you prefer, but the Fireluke 2 coils are beyond impressive, and frankly, there are few (if any) competing tanks offering anywhere near this level of performance.

And in a nice surprise, the TX coils aren’t all that thirsty, so you won’t notice the diminished capacity nearly as much as you might think. Plus, in an even nicer development, the Fireluke 2 coils are cross-compatible with the original Fireluke Mesh tank, adding even more value to a RIDICULOUSLY generous sub-ohm offering.

Freemax Fireluke 2 Specs:

  • 24mm Diameter
  • 5mL Max Juice Capacity
  • Superior Stainless Steel Chassis Construction
  • Slide-to-Open Top-Fill Design – 8.5mm by 2.8mm Fill Port
  • Fill Port Vent Hole – Prevents Positive Pressure Build-Up
  • Dual Slotted Bottom Airflow Control – 11mm by 3.5mm
  • FreeMaX Fireluke M Coil Family
  • Introducing New Tea Fiber Cotton
  • 15ohm TX1 Single Mesh Coil – 40-90W
  • 2ohm TX2 Dual Mesh Coil – 40-80W
  • Anti-Spitback Widebore 810 Drip Tip
  • Gold-Plated 510 Connection

Freemax Fireluke 2 Contents:

  • 1 Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank
  • 1 0.2ohm TX2 Mesh Coil
  • 1 0.15ohm TX1 Mesh Coil
  • 1 5mL Spare Glass Replacement

SMOK TFV16 Sub-Ohm Tank

ALL COLORS SMOK TFV16 Sub-Ohm Behemoth – The King is Back? Let’s ReviewAs my colleague mentioned a few months back, if you want the biggest, most powerful sub-ohm tank on the market right now then by all means, take the plunge and buy the new SMOK TFV16 Tank. You’ll be more than satisfied with the flavor production and cloud production with any of the three options, and as long as your mod can output at least 90W and can handle a 28mm wide tank, you will be very happy.

After using several TFV16s since we first published a review, our collective stance hasn’t really changed — size, capacity and leak-free performance are the name of the game here. Though we can’t really say the TFV16 is leaps and bounds better than SMOK’s countless other “beasts” we continue to enjoy the strong flavor and vapor production from this jumbo line of tanks.

If you want the biggest, most powerful sub-ohm tank on the market right now then by all means, take the plunge and buy the new SMOK TFV16 Tank and a pack of replacement coils. You’ll be more than satisfied with the flavor production and cloud production with any of the 3 coils, and as long as your mod can output at least 90W and can handle a 28mm wide tank, you will be very happy.

Famovape Vector Sub-Ohm Tank

FULL PACKAGE OF THE FAMOVAPE VECTOR MESH SUB-OHM TANKThe VECTOR Sub-Ohm Tank is the flagship mesh tank from Famovape, deploying a multi-mesh coil system for enhanced flavor recreation and 5mL maximum eJuice capacity with dual slotted bottom airflow control.


Measuring 25mm in diameter, the VECTOR Mesh Tank deploys a visually appealing metal construction with user-friendly design, such as a retractable top-fill method. The key component lies within the improved coil system, implementing multiple versions of mesh designs with a greater surface area that results in even heating.


Yeah, the Famovape Vector coils are fantastic. The first pair gave me nearly three weeks of performance each. That’s great performance for a low-wattage MTL atomizer, much less a juice-hungry sub-ohm offering, but that’s exactly what’s happened here.


Both coils offer similar levels of flavor and vapor, but if you only get to choose one, the triple-coil head is one of the best we’ve seen to date. Plus, we did check out the Vector with its cross-compatible SMOK and Vaporesso coil heads, and all fit beautifully, performing nearly as well as the stock coils.

Famovape Vector Tank Specs:

  • 25mm Diameter
  • 5mL Maximum Juice Capacity
  • Superior Stainless Steel Construction with Resin
  • Famovape Vector Mesh Coil System
  • 15ohm Vector Single Mesh Coil – Rated for 40-100W
  • 2ohm Vector Dual Mesh Coil – Rated for 60-120W
  • 15ohm Vector Triple Mesh Coil – Rated for 80-150W
  • Dual Bottom Adjustable Airflow Control
  • Convenient Push-Slide Top Fill Design
  • 810 Cobra Resin Widebore Drip Tip

HorizonTech Falcon King Sub-Ohm Tank

Best Vape Tanks of 2019Well, this one wasn’t a surprise. If you’re not familiar with HorizonTech’s tanks, they’ve long been an innovator in creating simple, but effective new ways to wick e-liquid to the coil, and their latest mesh offerings continue the trend in grand fashion, blending the mesh we know and love with bamboo fiber blend cotton. This results in smooth-wicking, pure flavor performance unmatched by many tanks on the market.

Both coils proved to not only be instantly flavorful, but also long-lasting, giving me a very respectable six days of high-performance (and high-wattage) vaping, before finally starting to fade at the one-week mark.

Of the two, I lean slightly (and I mean slightly) toward the higher-resistance dual coil for flavor and vapor performance, but the difference is negligible at best – both did an amazing job.

Here’s your one-line recommendation: Buy the HorizonTech Falcon King sub-ohm tank. Run, do not walk to your local vape shop. There aren’t many vape tanks that deliver this much enjoyment with so few negatives along the way. And even fewer come from companies we trust as much as HorizonTech.

Falcon King Specs:

  • Manufactured By: HorizonTech
  • Threading: 510
  • Body Material: 304-Grade Stainless Steel
  • Tank Material: Borosilicate Glass
  • E-Juice Capacity: 4.0ml / 6.0ml
