E-liquids are a crucial component of your vaping experience. E-liquids (or e-juices) consist of a mix of Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), flavouring and, possibly, nicotine. Some juices may also contain a small percentage of demineralized water.
What e-liquid should I choose?
Every vaper knows how difficult it can be to find a satisfying flavour. We carry a large selection of flavours from trusted producers from the US, UK, Italy, France. They all come in bottles with a child-proof cap. The label lists all applicable warnings.
E-liquids are available in a variety of flavour profiles, such as tobacco, menthol, fruity and bakery. Thanks to the complex flavours created by some of the best producers, we can serve the needs of any vaper.
When buying e-liquid, you might also want to consider the PG and VG composition. This is usually expressed as a ratio between two percentages with PG listed first. The PG/VG ratio plays a role in your vaping experience. First instance, Premium e-liquid with a High VG content tend to produce a thicker and smoother vape. However, they also require more advanced devices. By contrast, e-liquids with more PG are more suitable for simple set-ups. These e-liquids typically produce a stronger throat-hit.
Do all e-liquids contain nicotine?
E-liquids are available with or without nicotine. E-liquid with nicotine only comes in 10ml bottles and pre-filled pods only contain 2ml. For bigger bottles, you can take a look at our selection of Shortfills.
Nicotine strength is expressed in milligram per milliliter: mg/ml. For instance, the label might include the phrase 3mg/ml. this means 3 milligrams per ml. Due to UK and EU regulations, juice with nicotine sold per 10ml. Thus, your bottle contains 30 milligrams of nicotine.
What is the difference between mg/ml and %?
The law prescribes that nicotine concentration be expressed in milligrams per milliliters, i.e., mg/ml. Technically speaking, it could also be expressed in percentage (%). Let us simplify a bit. This is how you can think about it. One liter of water weighs one kilo. This means that if you only have one liter of water, 1Kg/L amounts to 100% water. Dividing both volume and weight by a thousand, we get 1g/ml. Thus a concentration of 1 gram per milliliter still amounts to 100%. When it comes to nicotine, though, even smaller amounts are found in your e-liquid. Suppose it is 1 milligram per milliliter. Then, it is not 100%, but a thousandth of that: 0.1%. Similarly 3mg/ml amounts to 0.3%. In these terms, the maximum nicotine concentration currently allowed in the EU is 20mg/ml or 2%.
Ok, but what nicotine strength should I choose?
This is actually a very difficult question. The answer differs depending on your smoking and vaping habits. This is our experience. Heavy smokers (one pack a day) who use less powerful devices (i.e., resistance above 1 ohm) often need to start at the highest levels of nicotine available: i.e., 18mg/ml or 14mg/ml. Moderate smokers may only need 12mg/ml, 8mg/ml or 6mg/ml. Casual smokers might get enough with 4mg/ml or 3mg/ml. As a rule of thumb, if you use a more powerful device (i.e., sub-ohm with resistance under 1 ohm), you can halve these values.
Do Nic Salts e-liquids work differently?
E-liquids with nicotine salts work differently from juices with freebase nicotine. These e-liquids are only meant for low wattage devices. They are also not suitable for chain vaping. Heavy smokers usually choose 20mg/ml. 10mg/ml should be enough for moderate smokers.
