In short, the quality and type of e-Juice used will impact the flavor.
Quality: In order to get the best quality, it is important to purchase e-Juices from trusted brands, known for their high-quality products. Many e-Cig users turn to trusted American brands, such as Apollo E-Cigs or HaloCigs E-Cigarettes, for their e-Juice needs. Purchasing e-Juices from trusted brands will help to ensure the quality and flavor of the products.
Type of liquid: E-Liquids are often mixtures of Propylene Glycol [Pg], Vegetable Glycerin [Vg], liquid Nicotine, and added flavors. Variations in the percentages of each amount of the liquid will impact the flavor. For more flavor, many clients prefer to have higher percentages of Pg than Vg, and recommend a mixture rate of 70:30 or even 80:20. However, higher concentrations of Pg have been linked to allergic reactions. If a client experiences allergic reactions from Pg e-Juice, it is recommended to discontinue use and seek medical intervention if necessary. The alternative for users with Pg allergies is to use the choice of Vg, Nicotine, and flavoring.
Liquid Intensifiers: Certain liquids exist to intensify flavors, create thicker puffs of smoke-rings, and otherwise enhance the smoking experience. These special intensifying liquids can be purchased from many of the same retailers of e-Juice. Sometimes, these special e-juices require specific devices which ae better adapted to handle the additional temperatures that these liquids burn at. Using these intensifying liquids with certain e-Cig devices could result in hazards to the consumer and or the device, including plastic components of the device melting. It is necessary to check the compatibility or device requirements when using such intensifying e-juices.
Common Starter Tastes For E-Liquid Beginners
Transitioning from traditional cigarettes to e-Cigs or Vaporizers may require an adjustment period to acclimate to the new smoking experience. For this reason, many beginners prefer to start out with familiar flavors and find the Tobacco, as well as Menthol, or even Mint flavors to be good fits for them. However, after adjusting to what many clients deem a “cleaner” feeling of smoking, it is common to switch over to sweeter flavors.
Therefore, after the transition period, many users find Fruity or Dessert e-Juice flavors best for their tastes. E-juices have many flavor options to choose from, so while sticking with the traditional flavors certainly is an option, it is not the only choice in the pursuit of the best e-Juice.
Can I buy E-Juice and use it on every device?
Whether or not to purchase e-Liquid and what type of e-Juice can be used depends on the device.
Disposable Devices: Some e-Cig and Vape devices are disposable and run using cartridges. For these devices, it is not necessary to purchase e-Liquid, as this type of fluid cannot be used with the device. Additionally, not all disposable devices have the option of replacing cartridges. Reading package labels and descriptions can let the user know if their particular device is disposable and whether or not it can be paired with other cartridges.
Reusable Devices: For this type of e-Cig device, fluids are often required for use. Purchasing fluids from trusted e-Cig vendors can help to determine which types of fluids are needed for the specific device. Many e-Juice fluids can be paired with most devices; however, for specialty fluids, or intensifying fluids, device compatibility checks may be especially needed, as these types of fluids are known to be incompatible with certain devices. If a client is concerned about compatibility, it is advisable to read all product labels and descriptions, to check with any guide books, or to ask a trusted sales representative.
Common Bottle Sizes
Sample and Small Sizes: Sample sizes are available from some vendors of e-Cig products. These sample e-juices may be purchased for the price of shipping or a reduced price of around $3. The sizes of samples vary, but may commonly be around 5ml, which offers e-Cig users a taste of new flavors or products to see if the taste is suitable to the user. Many e-Cig users find samples and smaller sizes a great way to test out flavors that they haven’t tried yet, without having to commit to purchasing larger sizes, which are often more expensive.
Medium or Regular Sizes: Many e-Juices are sold in the standard size of about 30ml. While pricing varies for this size, common pricing is between $10 and $15 per 30 ml bottle. Some special blends of flavors, or limited edition e-Juices may be more expensive.
Larger Sizes: For those who have found a flavor or e-Juice that works well for them, they may want to purchase a larger size bottle of the favorite e-Juice. Larger sizes are available in double the regular size, 60 ml. Pricing for this higher quantity varies, but may be purchased for about double the regular price, or about $30.
Available Nicotine Strengths
A traditional cigarette has about 1 milligram of Nicotine each. With e-Cigs, users can control how much, if any, Nicotine that is added to e-Juices. Since the Nicotine is the main culprit behind addiction, many users prefer to gradually phase out the use and reliance on the substance. While others, prefer to maintain a certain amount in their blends. With this in mind, Nicotine liquid is commonly available in the following dosage amounts:
Nicotine Strength Levels: 0%, 0.6%, 1.2%, 1.8%, 2.4%, 3.2%.
The higher the Nicotine amount, the more dangerous it is to the consumer. Nicotine doses between 30-60 ml have been known to be lethal.
In order to choose the best e-Juice blend, it is important to understand these basics and personal smoking needs; using this knowledge one can create a customized best e-Juice.
