Finding the right vape juice for your device and tastes can feel like a daunting task, especially if you're new to vaping. But don't fret - we'll walk you through everything! Our guide provides an in-depth look at all the key elements of choosing E-Liquid so that you can select with confidence.

Type of vape device you are using

As you explore the wide variety of vape juices available, it's essential to consider which type of device you are using. Different devices work best with different types and ratios of E-Liquid in order to optimize flavour and vapour production. Sub-ohm tanks require an increased VG content for thick clouds while rebuildable atomizers will benefit from higher PG levels for a stronger throat hit and greater richness in taste. With this knowledge, your vaping journey can be tailored perfectly towards your preferences!

What works best for different types of devices

Once you've found the perfect device to satisfy your vaping needs, it's time to start picking out vape juices! Think carefully about four important elements: flavour for a delicious taste; PG/VG ratio for thickness and cloud production; nicotine content so you can adjust your dosage; the amount that corresponds with how often you puff away, and wattage of the device which helps determine temperature control.

1. Flavour:
The vaping experience is greatly enhanced by selecting the right e-liquid flavour. From classic tobacco to more adventurous flavours such as bubblegum and strawberry cheesecake, there's something for everyone! For a truly immersive vape journey, customisable devices with adjustable airflow or variable wattage can make all of your favourite flavours shine even brighter.

Disposable vapes are noted by some vapers to taste better than general tank kits. This is likely because of the extended amount of time the wicking material gets to soak up the E-Liquid before use.

2. PG/VG Ratio:
When choosing your vape juice, it's important to consider the PG/VG ratio. A higher VG content will offer more vapour production while a higher PG percentage can add an intense throat hit which amplifies the flavour. If you're using a small sub-ohm tank then opt for something with an elevated VG level; if on the other hand, you are dealing with rebuildable atomizers, choose E-Liquid containing more propylene glycol (PG). On average though, 50/50 is considered optimal and works well for most tanks and kits.

It's important to note that E-Liquids with higher VG are generally thicker which can lead to coils burning quicker when used with higher resistance.

3. Nicotine Content:
Vape juice contains varying levels of nicotine, ranging from 0mg/ml to 20mg/ml or higher. The amount you choose should depend on the device and power output being used: a low-wattage device with a mouth-to-lung tank works best with high nicotine content for satisfaction; while a high-wattage device and direct-to-lung tank would require lower amounts. By selecting the correct level of nicotine based on your setup, you can ensure an enjoyable vaping experience each time!

When we think about Nicotine Salts, prized for their high nicotine strength but less aggravating feeling to the throat, these lend themselves more to low-wattage devices. However, if you are partial to Nicotine Salts but love high-wattage devices, you could still use them but you will want to lower your strength to compensate.

4. Amount You Vape:
Depending on your vaping habits, the amount of vape juice you use can drastically impact your desired flavour and throat hit. Light vapers should go for E-Liquids with a lower nicotine strength whereas heavier users may want to opt for a higher concentration.

Generally, when we talk about nicotine strength for vapers, we associate how much you previously smoked to the strength likely good for you. For example, a heavy smoker (20 or more a day) will benefit from 20mg/ml but a lighter smoker who only smokes around 10 a day may benefit from a lower strength.

Additionally, keep in mind that wattage plays an important factor too as high-power devices will likely require more liquid than those with low-power settings. In these cases, you might want to look at E-Liquids like shortfills which give you more vape juice but are nicotine free.

Just to wrap up

Picking the ideal e-liquid can seem daunting, but don't worry! With different vaping needs and desires comes a range of options to match. Generally speaking, nicotine salts with a 50/50 PG/VG ratio is best for pod kits which require low wattage; any type of nicotine in any mix works great for tank kits; lastly, sub-ohm vapours should stick with 0mg or low-strength nicotine alongside higher VG ratios (70/30).
