Arctic Sub Tank by HorizonTech
An Arctic Tank review by me before the technical boys Daniel Dilsworth and Tim Clark get up close and personal with the Arctic, and post a YouTube Video on Vaping World!
So the Arctic Sub tank is yet another tank which sub ohms. All of us can sigh and say another sub tank really? What’s so different about it? You are wrong?! It definitely exceeds expectations and stands out from the other sub tanks that are currently on the market. Tests suggest that the Arctic “in testing with a 0.2ohm coil we managed to run this at 100 watts with zero flavour degradation”.
Although they suggest that actually maintaining a wattage of about 80watts increases the longevity of the coils as well as enhances the excellence of such a product.
The Arctic has a very sleek and smart appearance, its a sturdy and well crafted product. It’s quad intake features elliptical holes for improved airflow allowing you to enjoy whichever customised vape you choose. What I like about the Arctic most is that it didn’t leak. I was able to place it in my handbag and have it out and about, with no exterior leakage.
Aside of this I can happily run my Arctic on my other larger box mods up to 100 watts and get that crisp and clean vape. That said the best and foremost point which I think is a selling point, is how alike this is to an RDA. I love to use RDA’s but practicalities of work and not being able to use it when driving there was no other option. Now there is I can get an almost like for like with no hassle, and no loss of power or flavour. It definitely had no struggle with higher VG juices 90/10 is still a dream, with no loss of flavour, vape and intensity.
Another thing with sub tanks which I always find frustrating is the need to regularly change the coils, it becomes costly and I was forever getting the burn taste whenever I tried to up the watts. I had tried the priming and the other suggested ideas for longevity with no joy. The Arctic offers a tank which has cotton coils, specially manufactured to wick juice more efficiently for more flavour in every draw. Further to this it has vertically wired dual coils giving it that extra airflow and vapour production.
The tank also comes equipped with the 510 threading just like the majority of other mods and tanks out there. The Arctic also holds a whopping 3mls again needless to say who wouldn’t want a larger tank so they have to fill less.
On the negative side for me although I only have two is the ease of filling and priming the coil. The tank itself has two holes on either side of the centre fitting of which you place the juice. For me this was a little fiddly and did take some ajusting to. Juice bottles have all sorts of size nibs and although you will never get a perfect tank I think they could have done with being a little wider. Perhaps this would affect the design hence why they are that size? The coil due to the sub ohm use and build needs a lot longer to prime, otherwise you will end up with a burnt coil and a nasty taste.
- Made of 304 Stainless Steel & Pyrex Glass

- 100% USA Made Kanthal
- 3ml Juice Capacity

For me having the Arctic is a dream. I don’t worry about not being able to get the enjoyment by not using an RDA. I have flexibility in wattage use, great flavour and a fantastic vape. The design is appealing and sturdy, price is fantastic and yes no more need to change coils every 5 minutes. No regular coil changes means not more burning taste buds! Overall it’s definitely a thumbs up from me so for all you vaper’s why not give it a go it may surprise you.
