What is E-Liquid
The e-liquid is known by many names, some people call it vape juice while others refer to it as e-juice, others may call it Vape Liquid or e-cig oil. So what exactly is e-liquid and what is used for? The vape juice is a liquid that is used in an e-cig or vape tank. The coil /atomizer head heats up the e-liquid and turns it into vapour which is then inhaled by the consumer. E-Juice may or may not contain nicotine and can be found in hundreds of different flavours.
Some of the most popular e-liquid flavours are tobacco, fruits, menthol, coffee, desserts or cakes and many other variations from well-known drinks as cola, or energy drinks.
These days every manufacturer tries to come up with new and innovative flavours to satisfy an increasing market demand. So if you decided to start vaping, rest assure, you will need patience and persistence in discovering your favourite e-liquid.
What ingredients are found in e-liquids
Five main ingredients are used to manufacture the vape liquid:
• Propylene Glycol (PG) – Propylene glycol is used by the food and pharmaceutical and it is classified as an additive by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration ) that is "generally recognized as safe" for use in food. The PG contained in e-liquids is from 20% up to 80%. This is the ingredient responsible to carry the flavour and to create the throat hit. PG is thinner than VG (Vegetable Glycerine) and has a watery consistency. High PG liquids are mostly used for MTL( Mouth to Lung) vapers.
• Vegetable Glycerine(VG) – Vegetable glycerin, also known as glycerol or glycerine is a colourless, odourless, viscous liquid typically made from soybean, coconut or palm oils. It is odourless and has a mild, sweet taste with a syrup-like consistency. The VG is responsible for the cloud/vapour when vaping your e-liquid. HIGH VG vape eliquids are made with over 80% vegetable glycerine and are recommended for sub-ohm type of vape.
• Nicotine – various levels available from the highest of 20mg/ml down to 0mg/ml or nicotine-free
• Distilled Water
What Types Of E-Liquid You Can Buy
We are sure you are asking yourself how many types of liquid can be found? Here are the main ones we sell:
- High-PG E-Liquid: high-PG e-liquid contains a higher ratio of PG to VG. This vape juice is thinner compared to high VG and will carry flavour better. High-PG vape liquid is mostly used in refillable pod mods and other similar starter kits like vape pens electronic cigarettes. The coils used with this e-juice should have a resistance over 1 ohm.
- High-VG E-Liquid (Sub-Ohm E-Liquid): high-VG e-liquids are thicker compared to high-PG and produce big clouds when vaporised by the 'Cloud Chasers'. Coils that have a resistance below 1 ohm should be used with High-PG e-liquids.
- 50/50 E-Liquid: 50/50 e-liquids have a 50% PG to 50% VG ratio, and are commonly used in the majority of vape starter kits. 50/50 liquids nicotine strength mostly found in the UK are 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg, satisfying vapour production alongside great flavour. We recommend this vape juice if you just start vaping.
- Short Fill E-Liquid: short fill e-liquid is 0mg/ml (nicotine-free) and come in short fill bottles, for instance, 100ml e-liquid in a 120ml bottle size so you will have enough space to add 2 nicotine shots 10ml/each. If you are looking to save a few pounds than get the short fills.
- Nicotine Salt E-Liquid: nic salt e-liquids are made using nicotine salts, are made with the natural salt found within tobacco leaves, substituting the regular freebase nicotine. This means they deliver a smoother vape at higher strengths and provides a quick and satisfying nicotine hit that is absorbed faster to the bloodstream. Nic salt e-liquids should be used in low-power vape kits and refillable pod kits.
