Since the creation of the first vape device almost two decades ago, e-cigarettes have gained enormous popularity all over the world, offering a risk-free alternative for both current and former smokers. Though controversy always accompanies popularity, there are currently a number of myths surrounding e-cigarettes and vaping, some of which we shall examine today. We have debunked some of the most common e-cigarette myths since, regrettably, many of these beliefs have damaged the reputation of e-cigarettes.
What are the different types of e-liquid?
There are a wide range of e-liquid types, and with so many to choose from it can sometimes prove difficult to decide which type is right for you, and best for the vape kit you’re using.
The types of e-liquid available to vapers are:
50/50 or 60VG/40PG – (or High PG)
Best suited to lower powered MTL style kits, for instance pod kits or MTL starter kits. For plus ohm MTL coils (1 ohm or more), we recommend to always use a high PG ratio e-liquid. These vape juices with nicotine are the most popular types for beginner vapers, as they closely replicate the sensation of a cigarette and are available in strengths of up to 18mg. 50/50 liquids are sold in a 10ml bottle size only.
70VG/30PG (or higher VG)
Designed to be used with sub-ohm tanks and higher powered vape kits. VG is a thick, sweet liquid and will provide you with denser clouds of vapour and intense flavour. The thicker consistency of high VG liquids means that a plus ohm (MTL) coil cannot properly absorb the liquid, and in turn will give a poor vaping experience. Sub-ohm liquids generally will not come in a strength higher than 6mg.
Salts vaporise at a lower temperature, so are also great in lower powered MTL kits. Nic salts are made with using nicotine salts in place of conventional freebase nicotine. The salts help to give a much softer throat hit even at higher strengths.
Nic salts are commonly available in either 10mg or 20mg strengths, and TPD limited to a 10ml bottle size.
These are nicotine free e-liquids and come in larger bottles which are only 80% filled with liquid. With the remaining space, you can add a nicotine shot to the bottle to create a nicotine e-liquid.
Selecting the Proper Vape Juice
Not so long ago, the selection of e-liquid for electronic cigarettes was extremely limited for vapers. If you weren’t into DIY or modifying, your options were basically limited to a few high-PG e-liquids and cigalike cartridges. Today, however, there are countless possibilities. In addition to the enormous variety of flavors you can select from, you can also choose between high PG and high VG, nicotine salts and freebase, and more. This variety is beneficial in many ways since it allows you to customize your vaping experience to fit your own preferences. For someone just starting out, it might also make buying e-juice complicated.
