Many novice vapers are confused with the dazzling different types of e-liquids – which kind of e-liquid suits my device? Which kind of e-liquid matches my appetite? And which kind of e-liquid kills the nicotine cravings fast? Fear not, e-liquid as one of the most cost-effective vape products is definitely worth trying for novice vapers who plan to have a long vaping journey.
What is E-liquid?
PG & VG
Firstly, you should know that e-liquid, e-juice, and vape juice all refer to the same thing, it is an indispensable part of vaping that brings vapers different flavours and experiences according to different types of vape juice. The ingredients of e-liquid are rather simple which are: VG(Vegetable Glycerin), PG(Propylene Glycol), Nicotine(freebase nicotine or nic salt, and it is optional) and flavourings. Do not mind the technical terms, you will just need to know that VG and PG can produce different amounts of cloud/vapour according to different ratios of VG/PG, specifically, VG is a kind of chemical liquid that is thicker and produces more vapour than PG, and PG carries more flavour. When it comes to the term “throat hit”, the more PG content in the e-liquid, the more intensive “throat hit” you will get.
Basically speaking, there are mainly 2 different types of nicotine that are used in the e-liquid – freebase nicotine and nic salt, freebase base nicotine often appears in a low strength(3mg, 6mg) in high VG e-liquid for DTL vaping, while the latter one often appears in relatively high strength in nic salt e-liquid(10mg, 20mg) for MTL vaping, it is worth noting that 20mg nicotine strength e-liquid is the highest nicotine strength that you can find in a vape shop because the max limit of nicotine strength in a vape juice is 20mg in the UK vape market according to the TPD Compliance.
As for the flavourings, there are hundreds and thousands. That’s why you can find so many different flavours of e-liquids in the vape shop. However, e-liquid cannot contain certain flavourings or ingredients like taurine, colouring, caffeine, and other ingredients deemed unsafe by the compliance.
It is reported that vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking, hence picking the right and suitable e-liquid is essential for your vaping experience. For a beginner who wants to quit smoking, a 50VG/50PG e-liquid in 0mg-20mg nicotine strength is recommended, Vampire Vape nic salt e-liquid is no doubt the top range to choose from, furthermore, a reliable and solid pod vape kit is necessary. Well, if you think it costs too much on a pod vape kit and e-liquid, a high quality disposable vape is also an excellent choice. And every time when we talk about disposable vapes, Elf Bar 600 is always the first brand surging into our mind just like when we talk about soda beverages, and Cokecola is the first coming to our mind.
How to Choose E-liquid?
Different vapers use different types of e-liquids. If you are a chain smoker and want to quit smoking by switching to vaping, you can try 50/50 vape juice or high PG e-liquid with recommended pod vape kit, of course, disposable vapes also do a similar job. However, in a long-term use, disposable vapes would be more expensive compared to the combination of pod vape kit and nic salt e-liquid. The nic salt e-liquid would satisfy your nicotine cravings efficiently, and the high PG content would deliver a more intensive throat hit which is much similar to the inhale sensation of smoking. Besides, vaping hardly creates any annoying scent compared to smoking, so it is good for your room, and clothes – smells good for sure. What’s more, most pod vape kits feature an airflow control system which means you can adjust the air inlet to create a looser or a tighter inhale, it is your choice!
For vapers who enjoy chasing big clouds and warm vapour, a high VG e-liquid and a mod vape kit are recommended. High VG e-liquid often appears in 70VG/30PG, 80VG/20PG, or even higher VG ratios, and we also call it a DTL vaping e-lqiuid. VG is a thicker chemical liquid that produces big clouds so it needs higher power to be vapourised, generally speaking, very low nicotine strength is added in a high VG e-liquid and it is freebase nicotine in 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg. Compared to 50/50 e-liquid, high VG e-liquid produces a smoother throat hit, bigger cloud, warmer vapour, and a more joyful vaping experience. However, better performance means higher prices, a solid and powerful mod vape kit is much more expensive than pod vape kit and disposable vape. So think twice before you make a decision on MTL vaping or DTL vaping.
To conclude, it is rather important to choose the right type of e-liquid that suits you best. Therefore, you should confirm which type of vaper you are first, then consider which type of e-liquid to pick.
