A term well known to vapers, e-liquid is one of the components necessary for the use of the e-cigarette. Of different flavors and containing or not nicotine, let’s take stock of what e-liquid is.
The composition of the e-liquid
As its name suggests, the e-liquid is a liquid and viscous substance that is integrated into the tank of the electronic cigarette and which will be heated by the resistance before turning into vapor. To put it simply, without e-liquid, the e-cigarette would not work.
This product consists of a PG/VG base which differs according to the tastes and needs of users. This is made up of vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. Then, food flavorings (natural or not) can be added as well as nicotine depending on the product.
How to choose your e-liquid?
For products containing nicotine, it is essential to choose your e-liquid depending on its usual amount of consumption (in addition to the type of material you hold). People who smoke between 5 and 10 cigarettes a day can choose an e-liquid of 3 to 6 mg/ml. Those smoking between 10 and 20 cigarettes will have to choose an e-liquid of 11 to 12 mg/ml and those smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day will prefer a higher content, i.e. 16 mg/ml.
What about the PG/VG ratio?
This ratio is mediated by the type of device you have. The more powerful your e-cigarette, the higher the VG dosage should be. For a more fluid liquid, the rate of PG must be higher. It is also an element that will determine the Hit (the famous tingling sensation in the throat).
How to store your e-liquid?
An e-liquid can be kept for 2 years if it has never been opened. Indeed, the lifespan of PG and VG is 2 years, as for that of nicotine, it is 5 years. Nevertheless, the aromas keep for 18 months at most. This is why beyond 2 years, an e-liquid will inevitably lose its flavor. For opened e-liquids, you have a maximum of 6 months to use it.
