Which type of E Liquid should I use?
We get it, switching from smoking to vaping can be a very confusing process. There are lots of terms to get used to and so many products to choose from. In this section we hope to answer all of your questions regarding the different aspects of E Liquids. Ultimately, the choice you make will be the one best suited the style of vaping you opt for and the type of equipment you will be using. Most vapers found they had to experiment in the beginning to find out what worked best for them.
What is PG?
PG - Propylene Glycol - is a thin, clear liquid without any odour of its own. It is a great carrier for E Liquid flavours and therefore found in most E Liquids. Mouth to Lung E Liquids tend to have more PG than Direct to Lung/sub-ohm E Liquids.
What is VG?
VG - Vegetable Glycerine – is a sweet liquid, much thicker and less runny than PG. It makes E Liquid smoother to vape and produces more cloud than PG. Direct to Lung or Sub Ohm E Liquids tend to have more VG than PG.
What is 50/50 E Liquid?
50/50 signifies the proportion of VG to PG in the juice, so a 50/50 E Liquid would be half VG and half PG. Other common ratios are 60/40, 70/30, and 80/20.
What strength E Liquid should I buy?
The answer depends on what type of equipment you buy and how many cigarettes you smoke. Typically, most smokers begin with a starter kit or a pod kit. You will find that the more you smoked the higher strength of nicotine E Liquid you will need. Heavy smokers should look to the 18-20mg/ml juices. Someone who smokes around 10 cigarettes per day might find that 6-12mg/ml will satisfy their craving. Light smokers or those opting to buy a sub-ohm set up will find 3-6mg/ml is probably sufficient.
It is very likely you may have to experiment with different strengths as two people owning the same equipment might have totally different vaping styles. Fine tuning to your needs is a natural process.
Which E Liquid flavour is best?
Unfortunately, this is like asking which food is best and there is no definite answer. A great starting place is to look at the flavour categories we offer and see which one you’d prefer to explore. Prime Vapes stocks Candy Liquids, Custard E Liquids, Dessert E Liquids, Fruity E Liquids, Menthol & Mint E Liquids, and Tobacco E Liquids.
What does All Day Vape (ADV) mean?
Vapers use the term All-day Vape (ADV) to describe a juice they find so rewarding they can vape it all day, every day. Even if they have one flavour they consider to be their ADV, many vapers end up owning more than one piece of kit and tend to have several flavours on the go; they find experimenting to be part of the fun. Maybe you will find yours in our Prime Vapes E Liquid range or in one of our Featured Brands.
What does Freebase mean?
Freebase describes the type of nicotine found in standard E Liquids. It is the same nicotine that is found in tobacco, nicotine patches and nicotine gum. Juice manufacturers use the same pharmaceutical-grade freebase nicotine liquid that pharmaceutical companies use in nicotine replacement products. Freebase nicotine delivers more of a throat hit than nicotine salts, similar to smoking. Prime vapes stocks a range of regulation compliant 10ml E-liquids containing freebase nicotine.
What is a Nicotine Shot?
Current legislation says that E Liquids containing nicotine are limited to 10ml bottles. An alternative is to buy a larger bottle, called shortfill E Liquid, and add a “shot” of nicotine to it, typically to turn it into a 3mg or 6mg E Liquid. These shots are called Nic Shots.
Why are some E Liquids in 10ml bottles?
British legislation is currently based on the European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). The law states that if a bottle contains nicotine it is restricted to a volume of 10ml. Prime Vapes’ 10ml E-Liquids are fully compliant with current UK legislation which regulates the components of the juice.
What is the TPD?
The European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) is legislation that applies to all countries in the European Union. You probably noticed that the United Kingdom recently left the EU. Politicians are currently examining our legislation to see how it can be changed. The Government has announced that it will carry out a consultation exercise during 2021 to see if bottles containing nicotine can be larger than 10ml and whether E Liquid nicotine concentration can be raised from the maximum of 20mg/ml.
What does Shortfill E Liquid mean?
E Liquid that doesn’t contain nicotine is not limited to 10ml bottles. As it can be supplied in larger volumes, a space is left in the bottle for the consumer to add a solution of nicotine at a later date. These bottles of nicotine-free E Liquids are called shortfills. Our short fill E Liquids are typically used in conjunction with our Nic Shots to create 50ml or 100ml of 3 or 6mg E Liquid.
Which E Liquid should I use in a Mouth to Lung (MTL) atomiser?
Vapers find the best kind of E Liquids to use for Mouth to Lung (MTL) vaping are 50/50 liquids or juices developed especially for MTL. Our 50/50 E Liquids and MTL Regular E Liquids come in a huge variety of flavours and are available in 6mg, 10mg, 12mg and 20mg strengths – or you could try the one of our nicotine salt E Liquids.
Which E Liquid should I use in a Direct to Lung (DTL) / Sub Ohm vape?
Direct to Lung (DTL) / Sub Ohm vapers tend to prefer using E Liquids with higher concentrations of VG liquid in the juice and lower concentrations of nicotine. Typically, someone will use a 3mg or 6mg strength E Liquid. Sub Ohm Tanks, RTA Tanks, and RDA Tanks used for DTL vaping tend to use more juice and for this reason vapers tend to buy Shortfill E Liquids with Nic Shots.
Which E Liquid should I buy for a Pod Vape Kit?
We stock a wide range of Pod Kits so check if the one you are interested in is geared towards Mouth to Lung (MTL) or Direct to Lung (DTL) vaping. MTL pod systems use 50/50 E Liquids, MTL Regular E Liquids or Nicotine Salt E Liquids. DTL pod systems use Shortfill E Liquids with Nic Shots.
