Many consumers face a relatively common difficulty when purchasing e-liquid. E-liquid is an essential part of the overall vaping ecosystem and whether you have a good or bad vaping experience is mostly down to your choice of e-liquid. But these days, you have so many options when it comes to choosing an e-liquid, and it can also be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the world of vaping. Today we’ll be discussing the different options you have when you’re in the market to buy e-liquid. By the way, you can check this dry herb vaporizer in case you need it. Since the sale of the exercise is currently underway.

What is vaping e-liquid made of?

All vaping e-liquids are made up of the following chemicals in specific respective proportions. There is vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, taste flavorings and optional nicotine salts. The most common type of e-liquid is the vegetable glycerin type and is usually infused with nicotine salts. Another type is propylene glycol, and this type of e-liquid also has good flavor options. A convection vaporizer will work with just about any of the two types of e-liquid, but not a traditional vaporizer.

Some main criteria allow you to choose an e-liquid:

1. Flavor: You might be inclined to try brand name cigarette flavors like Belmont, Marlboro or others if you are already a smoker. But in vaping devices, that same effect is hard to replicate. Indeed, there is not only nicotine in a cigarette, but also hundreds of other chemicals and tobacco. Nevertheless, you will find many tobacco flavored e-liquids, but not all of them can give you the authentic flavor of a real cigarette.

That might have been true for a smoker, but what about a non-smoker? There are also different fruit flavored e-liquids, for example ripe mango, creamy strawberry, tart blueberry, etc. You can choose to vape using nicotine-free fruit e-liquids and enhance your experience without harmful side effects. Since some people have an adverse reaction to nicotine, it is prudent to check with your doctor first for any allergic reactions, if any.

2. Nicotine: The majority of users buy e-liquids with added nicotine salts. But you need to understand the difference between light nicotine intake and heavy nicotine intake. If you are a heavy smoker and are using a vaping device to replace this, you will need to purchase at least one e-liquid with 35mg of nicotine salt. But if your vaping device can handle sub-ohm coil resistances, you can use 3mg to 6mg of nicotine. But you should be careful not to use nicotine salts in sub ohm or high wattage devices as these salts have a much higher concentration of nicotine than regular freebase nicotine.

3. Bottle size: An e-liquid can be of different sizes like 30ml, 60ml, 120ml and others. Now, depending on your location, the bottle size will vary. For example, in the European Union, TPD requirements dictate that the size of e-liquid bottles be limited to 10ml. TPD requirements also limit vape tank capacity to 2ml. If you want a premium feel, you can try using a glass bottle for a premium look and feel. But they can be expensive, so watch out for them when buying one.

Although glass bottles can give you a luxurious feel, it may not be easy to refill them once the e-liquid runs out. New-age squeeze bottles are much easier to fill than glass ones. Additionally, soft plastic bottles are essentially light and nimble by their very nature, and they don’t break easily.

4. Compatibility: If you buy a vape device and use it at sub-ohm settings, keep in mind that e-liquid will evaporate faster and you will therefore frequently run out of juice. On the other hand, if you use a higher resistance tank, it will take longer to burn the e-liquid. Also check vaping device-specific instructions for using certain types of e-liquids.

For example, some vape coils do not allow nicotine salt added e-liquids to be used with their vaping devices, requiring higher ohmic coil resistance. It is therefore always prudent to check the specific compatibility of your device before committing to buying an expensive e-liquid.


Although there may be many vaping e-liquids available in the market, you may want to check which particular product is right for you and therefore buy only that one. Some e-liquids are not suitable for some allergy sufferers or others. So, in this case, before buying a vaping liquid, ask your doctor.
