Though taste matters, the ideal e-liquid is not determined by flavour or packaging. Every vaper picks out their unique flavour based on what they like to drink or eat. However, you cannot experience the ultimate vaping experience without balancing flavour choices with other core e-liquid components like nicotine. So, before walking into an e-liquid store UK and buying labels, consider the following information.

Nicotine strength

E-liquids offer a wide range of nicotine strengths that range from zero to 36mg/ml. Your ideal nicotine strength depends on whether you are trying to cut down on smoking, quit smoking or switch to vaping. The lower the liquid nicotine number, the lower the nicotine strength and vice versa. Therefore, if you are switching to vaping, consider a nicotine level equivalent to the number of cigarettes you smoke per day. For instance; 12mg/ml is equivalent to 10 cigarettes per day. On the other hand, if you are cutting back or trying to quit smoking, go for 0 to 6 mg/ml nicotine strengths.

PG/VG ratio

PG is propylene glycol and VG is vegetable glycerine; both are core e-liquid ingredients. PG is a thin liquid with no colour or odour that offers throat hit. Hence, higher PG ratios offer a mouth to lung vaping experience without producing huge vapour clouds. On the other hand, VG is sweet and responsible for producing huge and luscious vapour clouds. Most e-liquids will have a 50/50 ratio or 70/30 PG/VG ratio. E-liquids designed for cloud chasers have higher VG/PG ratio with at least 70 VG.

Classic vs. Sub Ohm

Most e-liquid stores UK store classic and sub-ohm e-liquids. Their main difference is the PG/VG ratio. Classic e-liquids are designed for vape pens and e-cigs while sub-ohms are designed for box mods and sub-ohm vaping devices. Classic e-liquids are thin and ideal for low power devices with small juice holes. Sub-ohm e-liquids contain high VG levels are ideal for high powered vape mods that can vaporize thick vape e-liquids.

There are many e-liquid variations as there are many vaping kit variations. Therefore, it is important to understand your ideal e-liquid needs based on your vaping level and device type because e-liquid stores UK offer variety and sometimes confusing e-liquid selections.
