OBS Engine Sub & Engine Sub Mini: Best Cloud Chasing Tank of 2017?

I did a review of the OBS Engine Tank last year and I was completely blown away by it. It had to be one of my favorite tanks of 2016.

From the performance to the construction, everything about the OBS Engine was top notch. It was a cloud chasing, non-heating tank that had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced from a sub-ohm tank.

Apparently a lot of other vape reviewers felt the same way.

This is why I got excited when I was contacted by Heaven Gifts to review the 2017 versions which are the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini.

OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini Review

The two tanks are identical to each other and uses the same coil head, a disposable 0.3 ohm atomizer which is HUGE!

The disposable atomizers is what makes it different from the older Engine tank, which used a 2 post dual/quad rebuildable coil deck.

The only differences between the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini are the diameter and juice capacity: the Engine Sub has a 25 mm diameter and holds 5 ml of juice, while the Mini version is 23 mm in diameter and has a 3.5 ml capacity. The height of the 2 tanks is the same at 54.5 mm.

What’s in the Box?

Since it uses disposable coils, you won’t be needing any fancy tools or screws with this tank. It comes with an extra stock coil which is also at 0.3 ohms, an extra glass tank, extra o-rings and a user manual.

I’m glad OBS went the disposable atomizer route since I personally am getting a little tired of rebuildable atomizers. These new disposable coils that are coming out perform quite well when it comes to vapor and flavor production. It also saves me time and effort compared to using an RTA.

As for the construction of the tank, top grade as usual. I noticed the base of these new Engine Sub tanks are a lot beefier than the base on the previous OBS Engine tank.

OBS did a great job with sticking to what works. I love how the airflow holes are on top, and adjusting them are easy. Filling this tank with e-juice is a breeze thanks to the lift up sleeve which is located right under the air holes.

Because of the airflow holes and juice hole being located on top, this tank is a great purchase for vapers who are looking for a true leak-proof tank.


Aside from it being easy to use and leak-proof, the best thing about the Engine Sub is the vapor production. This tank really puts out big, dense clouds!

This tank is meant for vapers who like to vape at high wattage and enjoy that warm, dense vape.

Any cons?

As much as I loved the vapor production of this tank, I would have to say the biggest disappointment for me was the the flavor, especially for the Engine Sub tank.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad tasting vape at all. The only problem is the break-in period for the coil on the Engine Sub takes a little while, however it doesn’t take as long for the Mini version.

I don’t know if I didn’t saturate the coils enough, but I didn’t get that clean e-juice taste until after a few hits.

For a tank that produces so much vapor, I was expecting the flavor to be just as intense. The flavor just doesn’t match the vapor production.

Another thing is the draw. Like I said earlier, the previous OBS Engine tank had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced. These newer versions weren’t as smooth in my opinion.

Who is this tank for?

The OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini tanks are definitely for the cloud chasers, and since its so easy to use, I would even recommend them to the newbie vapors as an entry-level cloud chasing tank.

4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing Weight

People take up vaping for the most part to get over their addiction of smoking. Vaping is a great way to give you that feeling of “smoking” minus all the nasty carcinogens and chemicals that are associated with cigarettes.

Vaping has a very high success rate when it comes to quitting smoking which is why more and more smokers are starting to use vaping to eliminate their bad habit.

However, there are also a group of people who are picking up vaping for a different reason.

These people are using vaping to overcome another addiction which is their junk food cravings.

I’ve seen people all over the internet, from forums to YouTube videos, people who don’t smoke at all that are using vaping to aid them in taking less calories.

Why Some People Are Using Vaping To Lose Weight

One story I came across: vaping turned on a light bulb in this girl’s head when she found out there were different candy and dessert flavors available in e-juice form.

She saw these flavors as an opportunity for her to keep her cravings in check. And since she doesn’t smoke, she only takes the vapor in her mouth and doesn’t inhale into her lungs, sort of like hookah. This gives her taste buds that flavor satisfaction they are craving. She’s getting all the flavor of her favorite bad foods minus the calories!

 It’s actually a good idea

As a vaper who used vaping to overcome smoking, and a person who has been vaping for some time now, I can attest that vaping definitely helps in curbing cravings.

If you are looking into vaping to help you lose weight, but are a little suspicious of what’s in e-liquid, let me clear this for you. Regardless of what you’ve heard, e-juice consists of Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol which both are found in food grade products, along with flavoring and nicotine.

So for those of you who are still worried about getting poisoned by vaping, don’t fall for that lie, you have nothing to worry about in regards to that.

4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing weight

So here are 4 ways vaping helps in losing weight. The idea here is vaping prevents you from picking up that plate of extra creamy chocolate mousse or downing one whole bag of candy by letting you taste it (through vaping) without having to eat it and consuming all those calories.

1. ) It can kill junk food cravings

Contrary to what you’ve been hearing on the news that candy and dessert flavored e-juice are a way to entice teens into vaping, these flavors are enjoyed by adult vapers. Also, the reason why these flavors are very popular in the vaping community is because consumers have a very high demand for it.

When I was smoking, the only flavors I could choose from were tobacco or menthol. The wide variety of flavors vaping has to offer to me puts vaping way over smoking as a much more enjoyable experience.

From freshly baked glazed donuts to ice cream cake, I can savor the flavors of these delicious treats without having to worry about packing on some weight.

You could use this to your advantage if you are struggling with high calorie food cravings. Get a good quality vaping device, a tank, and some e-juice of your favorite flavor online and enjoy the taste of your favorite food without adding pounds.

2.) Nicotine is an appetite suppressant

It’s well-known that nicotine helps in preventing you from over eating by suppressing your appetite.

And no, nicotine isn’t some evil chemical that is extracted from tobacco. In fact, nicotine can be found in food like tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and cauliflowers.

Here’s a shocker you probably didn’t know: nicotine is not addictive. There are actually some benefits you can get from nicotine intake which I discussed in this post : Beliefs about nicotine that turned out to be false.

E-juice comes in different levels of nicotine when you buy it. These are most commonly: 3 mg, 6 mg, and 12 mg. Some vendors offer amounts as low as 1.5 mg, and some as high as 24 mg.

If you still prefer to avoid nicotine, no problem, you aren’t alone. There are many smokers-turned-vapers who have this stigma with nicotine. This is why e-juice vendors also offer zero nicotine options with their products.

3.) E-Juice comes in all sorts of flavors

A survey was done before that showed fruit flavors were the most popular among vapers, tobacco was second and dessert/bakery flavors came in at third. This survey was done a couple of years ago, and the number of available flavors has accumulated greatly since this survey was done.

From famous candies we’ve enjoyed growing up like Airheads and fruit roll-ups, to sweet rich desserts like red velvet cake and creme brulee, or even breakfast food like Fruit Loops cereal and syrupy buttermilk pancakes, 9 times out of 10 there is an e-juice equivalent to that flavor.

Now this doesn’t apply to other high calorie foods like pizza or burgers because there aren’t really any e-juice flavors out in the market since there isn’t really a demand for them.

4.) It increases your water intake

If you vape moderately to heavy, you’ll notice that your mouth gets dry after a while. Known as “vaper’s tongue,” I wrote a post about how to deal with this problem in the past, and one way to get rid of vaper’s tongue is by drinking more water.

Since vaping dries out your mouth, you are going to have to drink more water to soothe your dry mouth which in turn will increase your water intake. And we all know what kind of benefits come with drinking more water, especially when it comes to losing weight and flushing your body of toxins.

I mean you could use other types of beverages to water your mouth, but I know by experience that water is the best drink to have when you are vaping because it doesn’t get in the way of the e-juice flavor you are vaping on. Coffee is probably the second best drink to have when vaping for me, especially when your are vaping on dessert/bakery flavored e-liquid.

And if you are a non-smoker who just wants to get the “taste” of vaping, you can always and do a Bill Clinton and not inhale. It’s whatever works best for you!

Vaping is a great way to help you in substituting your sweet tooth. I’m glad some people are finding other positive uses for vaping aside from quitting smoking.

4 Reasons Why Some People Hate Vaping So Much

As a vaper, and as the owner of a vape blog, I get flack by random people on the internet, especially from those who hate vaping. I’ll get hate comments on here which I direct to the trash bin.

No, I’m not blogging about how you should have sympathy for me or for other vapers. I’m not asking for anyone’s pity. I’m not trying to say vapers are victims here.

I love vaping, and I know a lot of people out there do as well. If your on this blog or a regular reader, you probably like vaping too.

I’m just trying to figure out why some people look at vaping and at vapers with such hate.

Stop the ignorance, stop the hate

I’ve never really gotten into an argument with another person about vaping, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t come across people who have tried to start arguing with me about my vaping. From friends and family to random strangers, some wisecrack always tries try to tell me how bad vaping is.

I simply don’t engage because I’m very grounded in what I know about vaping. Also, a representative of the vaping community, I take the high road and keep my calm, trying not to leave a bad impression.

At the end of the day, I’m still gonna be vaping.

It just got me thinking, why do these people hate vaping so much? I’m surprised that people who hate cigarettes hate vaping as well, sometimes even more.

Shouldn’t we be on the same team? I mean people who overcame smoking through vaping are survivors in my opinion (I being one of them), similar to slaves who got away and are now enjoying a new found freedom. We all used to be slaves to tobacco.

It’s a great feeling not having to worry about buying a pack of cigarettes. It’s empowering to be able to overcome a habit that is detrimental. So why all the hate?

But no, the anti-vape people never see it that way. In their eyes, vaping is evil and they won’t stop until they rid everything about vaping, and to them I say good luck with that!

Vaping is not the enemy

Vaping was invented to overcome smoking.  The inventor of the modern-day e-cigarette, Hon Lik, is a Chinese pharmacist who was struggling with his own smoking addiction and was determined to create an invention that would be a much safer alternative to smoking.

So this question I had gave me a topic to blog about. I tried to recall and gather from personal experience and observation of others on why these people hate vaping so much.

What I’m also trying to achieve with this post is getting a better understanding of how these people think, their opinions on vaping, what triggers them, etc., so we as vapers could get a better understanding on how to deal with them and what to do when confronted about our vaping.

4 Reasons Why People Hate Vaping So Much

So I came up with 4 reasons based on my research on why people hate vaping so much.

1.) They are misinformed – To me, this is the biggest reason some people hate vaping. They are simply misinformed.

One of the biggest buzzwords of 2017 is “fake news,” and there’s a reason for that. More and more people are realizing that these journalists and media outlets are no longer reporting the news as it happens. What’s going on here is the media is pushing an agenda, THEIR agenda.

It’s pretty obvious that the media does not like vaping, so they gather stories that they hope will scare and discourage people from ever trying vaping. From exploding e-cigarettes, to outright lies like formaldehyde and engine coolant being found in e-juice, these “stories” are programmed to condition viewers into having a negative view of vaping.

Credibility in the media is sinking fast, but there are still those who get most of their information from the mainstream media. They believe what they read and watch; they think vaping is simply smoking 2.0, they believe vaping is a gateway for teens to smoking, they believe you will get sick and die from smoking even though vaping has never had any reported deaths or illnesses.

It’s really hard to deal with these types of people because of their ignorance. They believe they have credible knowledge when it comes to vaping when in fact everything that was fed to them was a lie.

2.) They hate seeing people better or improve themselves – Here’s another reason I noticed why people look at vaping with disregard, they just don’t like seeing people doing something better with their lives.

Now you might think this is too harsh or too far-fetched, but it doesn’t just apply to vaping. Just like people who try to go to the gym, and only to get ridiculed by their friends. Or people who go on a diet.

These people are just insecure. It could be your smoking buddies who are calling you a “sell-out” for giving up smoking. I believe that deep inside, they are jealous of you for taking initiative in overcoming such a nasty habit. Or it could be that they believe you will no longer hang out with them because they are smoking and you are vaping.

People vape for themselves and not for other people. If you are vaping because you sincerely want to give up cigarettes, just explain this to those who disagree with your way in dealing with a cigarette addiction.

3.) They are ruled by emotions and not by logic – Similar to the ones who are misinformed, these people have negative feelings towards vaping. It could be the girl whose father died of lung cancer caused by smoking, and she associates vaping with smoking, or some other example.

People are overly sensitive in this day and age, and they have this fixed idea in their head that vaping is just another form of smoking.

Also, there are some stereotypes that are starting to be pushed on to the vaping community. Some people actually believe that vaping is only for liberal hipsters (even though vaping is strong in conservative states), and that male vapers are considered gay for choosing vaping over the more “manly” cigarette.

I know, stereotypes never make sense, and people who hate vaping never make sense either.

4.) They are control freaks – There are some people out there who believe that you should be living the lifestyle they lead, and they don’t vape.

These people think they know what is best for you. We all know that someone, they are everywhere you go, all around the world.

Now we all think we know what is best for other people, but most of us don’t go out of our way to tell or even impose these things on others. These control freaks who hate vaping on the other hand will not shy away from convincing you to the point of harassment on why you shouldn’t vape.

There will always be people like that, and the best way to deal with them is to simply ignore them. It’s your life, and you are the only one who controls it. The only time another people will be able to control you is when you let them.

What do you think? Are there other reasons that  causes some people to hate vaping? Do you have any similar experiences as someone who vapes? Leave a comment below!
