Choosing an e-liquid
There are a few things you need to consider when choosing the best e-liquid to suit you.
First ensure you are purchasing the right type of e-liquid for your device. Starter kits and pod systems are best used with 50/50 and high PG e-liquids to help with absorption and coil longevity.
Next, select a nicotine strength that will match your previous nicotine intake to help keep your cravings at bay. Your previous smoking habits will help inform what strength will suit you best. We usually recommend the following as a good place to start:
- Heavy smoker - 20+ cigarettes a day: 18mg – 20mg
- Moderate smoker – 10 - 20 cigarettes a day: 10mg – 12mg
- Light smoker – 5 - 10 cigarettes a day: 6mg
- Casual smoker – Smokes few cigarettes or not every day: 0mg – 3mg
You can then move up or down a strength as needed to find the best one.
There are two different types of nicotine: salts and freebase. Nicotine salts offer an extremely smooth inhale and absorb into the bloodstream quickly to satisfy nicotine cravings in seconds. Whereas freebase nicotine offers a ‘throat hit’ and absorbs a bit slower for those who prefer lengthier vaping sessions.
Finally, find a flavour that you enjoy, as this will help you to keep picking up your e-cigarette and not think about smoking. While tobacco flavours are a good place to start, many vapers quickly find they prefer more adventurous flavours like fruits, desserts, and candy. We recommend starting with flavours you know you like, such as your favourite fruit or sweet treat.
If you are using a prefilled pod system you will not need to buy e-liquids, but instead can choose from the range of prefilled pods designed for your device. These will usually be available in a range of different flavours and nicotine strengths.
