A Guide To Finding The Right E-Liquid Flavour For You
Deciding on the e-liquid flavour to use can be a pretty complicated prospect, especially with so many different options to choose from and if you don't know where to start. However, this does not have to be such an overwhelming experience so long as you get some advice and extra information to help you along. Keep reading for a few tips to aid you in finding the kind of e-liquid that is sure to bring your vaping experience to a whole new level of experience and satisfaction.
Get to know your general flavour optionsWhilst it is not possible to browse through every flavour of e-liquid available on the market today, it's easier to narrow down your choices by learning about the general flavour categories they belong. Although there is no 'official' e-liquid flavour categorisation system, here is a list of the most common categories of e-juice flavours:
- Fruit flavours
- Savoury flavours
- Candy flavours
- Menthol flavours
- Cereal flavours
- Tobacco flavours
- Unique and exotic flavours
Think about your goal
Everyone’s preferences are different and the kind of e-juice flavour you're sure to enjoy will depend on how you plan to use it. If you are looking for an e-liquid you can enjoy day after day, you may want to find a simpler, milder flavour which often has the most lasting appeal. Otherwise, if you want something to spice things up on occasion, you might enjoy a bolder, richer flavour.
Get the right amount of nicotineFinding the right kind of e-liquid for your personal taste and preferences also depends on the juice's nicotine strength. To get an idea of the levels of nicotine that come in various strengths, take a look at the list below:
- Low: 6mg and below – for light smokers
- Medium: 9mg to 16mg – for average smokers
- High: 18mg to 36mg – for heavy chain smokers
Get the right amount of PG and VG
The main base solution of an e-juice is either Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerol (VG), or a combination of both. Whilst PG offers more flavour it produces a rather weak vapour. VG, on the other hand, has a slightly sweet taste and produces massive clouds of vapour. A typical PG to VG ratio is 40:60 where many users are already satisfied with the flavour and the amount of vapour this mix produces.
Try out friends' choices of flavours
If you have family or friends who vape or if you are part of a vaping community, ask if you can try out some of their e-juice. You could sample their small collection of different flavours to get a better idea of what you like. Consider asking them what kinds of e-liquid brands and flavours they would recommend as well, as it would save you a lot of time and money.
