What are the different factors to consider when selecting an e-liquid?

Your Device

Not all devices and components can work with every type of e-liquid. Some tanks and coils aren’t compatible with certain blends or vaping styles. Before picking an e-liquid, make sure it will work well with your vape.


When it comes to e-liquid flavours, the choices are endless. Whether you like fruit, sweets, tobacco, or menthol, you'll be able to find an e-liquid to suit your mood. It might go without saying, but you shouldn’t pick a flavour you normally wouldn’t like. For example, if you don’t enjoy coffee in your daily life, maybe a coffee e-liquid isn’t the best choice for you.

Nicotine Strength

You need to choose a nicotine strength that will satisfy your cravings without being so strong that you won’t enjoy it. If you were a heavy smoker, you’ll want a higher strength e-liquid like 12mg, 18mg, or 20mg. Those who only casually smoked or who are reducing their nicotine intake should opt for a lower-strength e-liquid like 3mg and 6mg. Once you’re ready to go nicotine free, opt for a 0mg ecig liquid.  

E-liquid Base

The main two ingredients of e-cig liquid are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG). VG is made from a vegetable source and provides a good consistency as a base for e-liquids. It also adds a subtle touch of sweetness to the overall flavour of the e-liquid. PG isn’t as thick as VG but provides the throat hit that most vapers crave. A 50/50 blend is the standard for e-liquids, but the higher the PG, the stronger the throat hit. It’s also better for sub-ohm vaping. For more vapour production, opt for a higher VG.
