E-Liquid & Vape Juice
What is E-Liquid?
Vape juice, vape liquid, pocket fuel, e liquid, ejuice, coil sauce - call it what you will, e-liquid is the lifeblood of the vaping world and is what makes the journey away from smoking not just painless but hugely enjoyable for millions of vapers all over the world.
E-liquid is a solution comprised of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerine (VG), flavourings and nicotine that is heated in an e-cigarette device so that it evaporates into vapour. This vapour is inhaled providing the user with an experience similar to smoking but with none of the harmful chemicals associated with it.
Why is E-Liquid better than tobacco?
We can think of over 7000 reasons why e liquid is better than traditional tobacco, as that’s how many chemicals - which can include more than 70 carcinogens, carbon monoxide and arsenic – can be found in cigarettes, pipe and rolling tobacco. E-liquid, by comparison, contains only PG, VG, food-grade flavourings and nicotine which is why Public Health England claims that vaping is 95% safer than smoking.
What types of Vape Juice are there?
E-liquid is not only perfect for providing vapers with a safe and pleasurable means of nicotine delivery, but it’s super-versatile too, giving users the means to choose just the best vape juice for their preferred vaping devices and nicotine requirements.
High PG E-Liquid
PG is the best carrier for flavour, and juices with a higher PG to VG ratio are usually of a thinner consistency and are ideal for vape pens, classic or starter e-cigarette kits and refillable pod devices. Pop these in your device and let your favourite flavour carry you away.
High VG E-Liquid
Liquids with a higher ratio of VG to PG are thicker in consistency than PG-heavy juices and are great for cloud production when vaporised. Often called sub-ohm juices, High VG e-liquids only work in high-power, low resistance advanced vape kits that use box mods and compatible tanks, which make them cherished by hobbyists and vape enthusiasts who hunger for awesome clouds.
E cigarette liquid with an even ratio of PG and VG hits that sweet spot between gorgeous flavour and impressive cloud production and are ideal for use in the majority of starter kits.
Nicotine Salt E-liquids
Also labelled “nic-salt” e-liquids, rather than the freebase nicotine used in most e-liquid, nic salt vape juice is derived from natural nicotine salts. This allows a higher concentration or nicotine to be vaped without a harsh throat hit, which makes nic salt juices an uncanny match for the sensation of smoking a real cigarette. Because they’re vaped on low wattage devices, Nic salt e-liquid is best for starter kits and refillable pod devices.
What flavour e-liquid?
There is a galaxy of e liquid flavors to explore here at Vapestore and they run the gamut from comforting desserts like apple and rhubarb crumble or cherry bakewell to nostalgic confectionary flavours conjured straight from your childhood. Imagine tasting a rich, sweet and indulgent blueberry donut with every vape or a silky smooth coffee laced with salted caramel. Or if fruit’s your thing you’ll find a mouth-watering menagerie of luscious fruit e-juices; everything from summery strawberry bliss to tropical mango to zingy lime or blood orange. And some of our best-selling e-liquids are those most timeless of all flavours: classic tobacco or icy menthol never go out of style.
There are some truly original and delicious vape flavors that can be found nowhere else outside of e liquid recipes: think Heisenberg e liquid; a chilling concoction of menthol, aniseed and berry fruit. Or have you tried
What are Shortfill E-Liquids
Since the EU’s Tobacco Products Directive came into force in 2016, nicotine-containing e cig liquid can only be sold in units of 10ml. Shortfill bottles appeared soon after and offered a simple solution that saved vapers time and wasted packaging.
Shortfill bottles contain nicotine-free e-liquid with space for a ‘shot’ of liquid nicotine. This allows for bigger bottles – usually 50ml or 100ml – that can be topped up with nicotine ‘boosters’ to reach your desired nicotine concentration. So for example, a 60ml shortfill bottle would contain 50ml e-liquid with space for a 10ml shot of nicotine e-liquid at 18mg strength, which would achieve 60ml of e-liquid at 3mg strength.
At Vapestore, we have great deals on shortfill bottles and many come with a free nicotine e liquid for even better value!
