Our top 20 e-liquid picks for summer

During the summer you might find that you are leaning more towards more refreshing e-liquids than the once you use during the winter months. Fruity and icy flavours are a big favourite around this time of year, as we tend to want something lighter and fresher than the sweet and comforting desert flavours that are popular when it is colder. So, we have curated a list of our top 20 favourite summer flavours this year, with a mix of old favourites and new loves, to help you find your summertime all day vape.

What is the difference between high VG and 50/50 e-liquids?

We have tried to keep a nice mix of both high VG and 50/50 e-liquids, so there are options for all different devices and vaping styles.

It is important to know what ratio e-liquid is best suited to your device, so before we get started, we want to give a little overview of the difference between high VG and 50/50 e-liquids.

High VG e-liquids work best with larger, sub-ohm tanks on intermediate or advanced devices. This is because they have a higher ratio of VG to PG, most commonly 70/30, making them a thicker consistency. Because the e-liquid is thicker, smaller coils can have trouble absorbing them as quickly as they would a thinner, 50/50 mix which can result in dry hits and coils burning out much faster than expected.

All of the high VG e-liquids mentioned in this post come in the form of shortfills. These are larger bottles of e-liquid, most commonly 60ml or 120ml bottles, which contain a 0mg e-liquid. The bottle is filled short of the top, to allow room for the addition of enough nicotine shots to bring the e-liquid to a 3mg strength. For example, a 60ml shortfill will contain 50ml of e-liquid, with 10ml of space for one nicotine shot, and a 120ml shortfill with contain 100ml of e-liquid with 20ml of space for 2 nicotine shots.

Smaller devices such as starter kits and smaller pod systems work best with a 50/50 e-liquid, as these are a thinner consistency that allows the coils to absorb the e-liquid easily. 50/50 e-liquids are also available in a much wider variety of nicotine strengths, giving new vapers the chance to choose the strength that will best suit their previous smoking habits and keep any cravings at bay.

If you are unsure what e-liquid would best suit your device, head to our YouTube channel or website for more information on your specific device, or pop in to your local Evapo store and speak to a member of our team for advice and recommendations on e-liquids to suit both you and your device.

Citrus flavours

You can’t go wrong with a citrus vape during summer, whether it is lemon, lime, or something a little more exotic.

IVG Fresh Lemonade

If you are looking for something to help you get into the summer spirit, you can’t go wrong with a traditional lemonade!

Sticking with the lemonades, IVG have taken a slightly different approach by keeping it simple yet classic. The combination of freshly squeezed lemons with a dash of sugar is perfectly balanced.

Fresh Lemonade is a 50/50 ratio, perfect for starter kits and smaller devices, and is available in a 10mg nic salt formula which offers a smooth inhale and rapid relief from nicotine cravings.
