When deciding to swap their tobacco cigarettes for a vape device, many will spend a long time researching the different devices available to ensure that they’re investing in something that is suitable for them at the start of their vape journey. However, they will then simply purchase the first vape liquid they find and assume that it will be right for them, yet this isn’t always the case.
The vape liquid that you use will directly influence your vaping experience and what’s best for one person isn’t always what’s best for another. There is actually more to think about than people realise when it comes to choosing a vape liquid and if you’re trying to navigate the many different brands and flavours available, keep reading today. Below we have put together some useful tips for choosing a vape liquid when you’re new to vaping.
Think about what you want to get out of your vape experience
Your vaping style and the overall experience you’d like to have whilst vaping will go on to play a vital role in the type of vape liquid that you purchase and whether you’re a ‘cloud chaser’ or a ‘flavour chaser’, for example, is really important.
Different vape liquids have different PG/VG ratios and these ratios will affect what the liquid is like to vape, so you always need to take the PG/VG ratio into consideration when choosing a vape liquid. You can learn more about what PG and VG are on our blog and don’t forget to think about whether you’re wanting to vape MTL or DLT when choosing a liquid too.
Decide which type of flavour you’d like to vape
When browsing the market for vape liquids, you will notice how many different flavours there are to choose from. Which flavours are best for you to vape will all come down to personal preference and what your taste palate is like.
If you have a sweet tooth, dessert flavours or chocolate flavours might be best, yet if you’re more of a savoury person, these might be too sickly for you and something more refreshing like a menthol flavour might be best. You can instantly narrow down your options by thinking about your taste palate and which flavours you tend to enjoy in day-to-day life.
Consider whether you want to have nicotine
Lots of people will use a vape device to help them cut down the amount of nicotine they have and unlike when you’re smoking tobacco cigarettes, when you vape you’re in control of how much nicotine you get. You don’t even have to use any nicotine if you don’t want to.
You will come across something called ‘short fills’ on the market and these are bottles of vape liquid that are designed to be used with nicotine shots, which are bottles of concentrated unflavoured nicotine. By combining these two products, you can create a bottle of vape liquid that is your desired nicotine strength. So, look into what nicotine strength will be best for you.
Ensure your vape liquid is compatible with your vape device
Many people who are new to vaping don’t realise that not all vape liquids can be used in all vape devices. Simply put, depending on the PG/VG ratio of the liquid you buy, you might not actually be able to vape it through your device.
Often, it is vape liquids that have a higher VG ratio than 50/50 which can cause problems in this regard and because VG is a thick liquid, a more powerful device is required to vape the liquid. Simple devices, like vape pens and vape pods, are usually recommended for beginners and you will need to double-check which liquids these devices can accommodate.
Purchasing vape liquid for your first vape device
