Types of Vape Flavours

I’m pretty sure we can all relate to that bittersweet feeling of indecision when it comes to choosing something we would like to try when we have a million options to choose from.😩 E-juice is the same, unfortunately, especially for those who are just starting out. Most e-juices come with different flavours and nicotine strengths. For new ex-smokers turned vapers, a higher strength, such as 18 mg or 24 mg can be an ideal place to start as it will give you your nicotine fix.

A healthy approach most people adopt is to work their way down to lower levels and eventually to 0 mg and the amount of vapour produced by your e-cig or vaporizer also impacts how much nicotine you’re consuming. The rule of thumb is, “the higher the amount of vapour your e-cig produces, the lower the level of nicotine you should choose.” Simple right?

Types of Vape Flavors🍦🍷🍎🍌🍡

There are virtually infinite e-cig flavours available on the market, which can be categorized into four main groups. To find the best e-juice that will satisfy your taste buds, start with one flavour and then add other flavours to it. For example, if you have been smoking menthol cigarettes🚬, you’ll probably like the taste of menthol e-cig juice flavours. But you might like it even more if you add like an apple🍎 or banana🍌 flavour to it.

Tobacco Flavored E-Liquids🚬

Since most ex-smokers love the taste of tobacco, e-juices try to offer them a fix for their craving without the tar, carcinogens, and other harmful chemicals found in the tobacco smoke. This is why almost every e-liquid manufacturer will have a tobacco flavour in their line of e-juices.

Single Flavored E-Juices🍙

Single flavoured e-juices are the most popular type and can taste like anything from coffee☕ to fruit🍉 to cakes🍰 and so on. Some Vapes companies offer a wide range of standalone, US made vape flavours are mostly fruity but also include some quirky flavours such as coffee, cola, and pie flavours.
The best thing about these flavours is that you can choose nicotine strength as well as VG/PG blend to customize the e-liquid according to your very likings.👍

High VG E-Juices

This is considered ideal for sub-ohm vaping, high VG e-juices are a class apart when it comes to the intensity of flavor🍓💦. However, making high VG e-juices is a very complicated matter and that’s why many companies miss the mark. Either you’ll get dry hits or a burnt taste when vaping at high wattage/voltage or very low resistance, because the e-juice isn’t created to withstand the immense heat, and ends up losing the flavour.😢

E-Juices with Multiple Flavors🍕🍊🍷

Despite having countless flavours, it’s possible that your favourite flavour is still not available on the market. This is where you can unleash your creativity😀, and make exclusive vapour flavours that you know your taste buds will love. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through the hassle of physically mixing different flavours since some companies will do the mixing for you. This makes it so much easier to get flavours that you’ll want.

We can safely say that no one wants to eat, drink, or vape any flavour they don’t like, and with so many amazing vapour flavours out there, there must be at least one flavour that you will love. But trying every single flavour is simply out of the question because I doubt you have all that time at your disposal. This is where you can use this guide, along with some common sense, to find the right flavour  without having to spend big bucks.

Atomizer vs. Cartomizer vs. Clearomizer

 

You may recognize these names if you vape but for those who aren’t really in the know and would like to be, then I’ll be your guide into this world of vaping. So, Atomizer, Cartomizer, and Clearomizer are devices that you screw on a battery or power supply to deliver e-juice (e-liquid) in a vapour form. These devices are the three devices used in this industry and all three type of devices work on the same principle of heating e-juice to a temperature of vaporization.

When it comes to the best of the three, there is no real winner since some people prefer one over the other, and each has its own pros and cons which we will discuss in more detail.

Atomizer

Atomizers are one of the original devices. They have a fairly small capacity and are best for people who prefer dripping. There are different design but the majority of atomizers have a heating coil on the bottom with metal mesh on top of the coil. Some atomizers utilize silica wick instead of metal mesh.

Pros of atomizers

  • Perfect for dripping, which means that you can switch between different flavours of juices pretty fast
  • Simple design
  • Low cost
  • Easy to refill

Cons of an Atomizer

  • If you vape a lot, you need to continuously refill an atomizer
  • Some models of atomizers are rebuildable but require considerable skill
  • Hard to track the amount of e-juice left inside

Cartomizer

Cartomizers are similar in design to the atomizer. The big difference is that cartomizers have polyfill wrapped around a heating coil, a polyfill soaks e-juice and it allows for longer vape time over atomizer. There are some designs of cartomizers that are housed inside a larger cylindrical tank that holds an even larger capacity of e-juice. Nice right?

Pros

  • Hold more e-juice over an atomizer
  • Low cost
  • Easy to refill
  • Fairly easy to rebuild

Cons of a Cartomizer

  • Might not be suitable for heavy vaping.
  • Some people  claim that polyfill material dulls the e-juice flavour
  • May retain   from the previous e-juice

Clearomizer

Clearmizers are one of the newest and most popular devices on the market today. These type of devices are usually cylindrical and feature a clear polycarbonate plastic or pyrex glass tank. A clear tank allows you to see the level of e-juice inside of a clearomizer, which is a nice feature.

E-juice is delivered to the heating coil by ways of a silica wick and some designs feature top heating coil with longer wicks, others have bottom placed heating coil with short wicks which allow for easier wick saturation.

Pros

  • Large capacity for e-juice, typically around 1.6 – 3ml
  • Clear tank allows you to see the exact amount of e-juice left inside of the clearomizer
  • Some models are rebuildable, and come with replaceable coil
  • Longer life-cycle
  • Some people claim that clearmizers with wick system offer superior flavour delivery

Cons of an Clearomizer

  • Usually more expensive than atomizers or cartomizers
  • May retain flavour from the previous e-juice
  • May leak depending on manufacturer and model
  • Top coil design may require you to tip clearomizer to absorb leftover e-juice

How to Choose the Best Flavours for You When You Buy Vapour Juice

Veteran vapers often tell those new to the world of vaping that there are a number of things to consider when choosing between the huge number of choices they will be faced with when they go to buy vapour juice. And they are right. Nicotine levels, PG vs. VG and a few other factors may indeed be important but first and foremost it’s always about taste.

Why? Because just like food and drink in general, if you don’t like the flavour you just aren’t going to use the stuff are you? Fortunately, vapour juices come in almost any flavour you can think of: fruity, food, cocktails, and of course, tobacco blends.

New users who are trying to wean themselves off traditional cigarettes often choose tobacco blends that closely match the flavour of their favorite cigarette brands. Many e-liquid manufacturers know this, so they have created various tobacco blends that mimic the taste of popular brands.

Eventually though, most vapers looking to buy vapour juice get more adventurous and start to try out various fruit or food blends. Some prefer food flavours like biscuits, cake, or pizza – yes, pizza – while others like fruity ones like grape, watermelon, or mango. There are also mixed blends available, where various fruit, food, and tobacco flavors are mixed to create new and exotic flavors.

With all the mixing and virtually infinite blends that are possible, it’s only natural that cocktail flavors appear. Beer, brandy, and wine are just a sampling of alcohol-inspired flavors.

Our best advice to new vapers buying their first vapour juices? Start with the ones that you’re pretty sure you’ll like. The ones that are pretty safe; strawberry, vanilla, or, as we mentioned, the ones that taste like standard cigarettes. Once you have a good stock of those, you can start experimenting with other flavours and hopefully find some exciting new ones that you like just as much.

Great Vape Juice Flavours for People who Don’t like Fruit

Fruity vape juice flavours are big sellers, but they are not to everybody’s taste (the world of vaping would be pretty boring if they were) However, if you head to a store, or website, offering vapour juices it’s likely to be those fruity choices that are displayed first, as they are so very popular.

Dig a little deeper however and you will find juice flavours that will more than satisfy the flavour needs of the vaper who is looking for something different. Here’s a quick look at some of our personal favourites.

Monsta Vape Vanilla Custard

This juice flavour offers a sweet hit that is, as you might have guessed, smooth and creamy without being too sickly or cloying. Think Mum’s Sunday dinner dessert custard but better.

Candy King Sour Worm

If you were the kind of kid that could stomach a mouthful of sour gummy worms and grin while everyone else winced then this is a vapour juices choice you just have to try. Tart and yet still slightly sweet the nostalgia you’ll feel when vaping this will be almost as much fun as the flavour.

Bubbleworx Spearmint

If you like the idea of a fresh, minty vape hit that will definitely remind you of your favourite chewing gum then this is one is for you. It’s a great choice for a morning hit too, as the mint flavour will do a great job of waking you up!

Just Jam Toast

Speaking of breakfast favourites, who doesn’t like a nice bit of buttery toast in the morning? This vapour juice captures all of that wonderful taste and more.

These vapour juices are just a handful of the wide variety available that have nothing to do with strawberries, lemons or any other kind of fruit. Part of the fun of vaping is trying out new flavours, so why not explore your options until you hit on just the right ones for you?

What is the Best Coil for Flavour?

Interested in the idea of flavour chasing? With sub-ohming becoming more and more popular and easily accessible, you have lots of options when it comes to choosing a new tank or RDA to help you do that.

For those who don’t know, an RDA (or Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer) is a device used in place of a tank that allows you to build your own coils. With an RDA, you are usually going to be building your own coils. Building your own coils can be tricky and a bit time consuming, but many veteran vapers will tell you that it’s the best way to customize your vaping experience. But what is the best coil for flavour?

Rather than getting into specific models, as there are so many, for this very basic overview let’s look at some of the coil considerations that vape experts say you should keep in mind when choosing or building the best coil for flavour:

The Surface Area of the Coil

A larger coil surface area allows more juice and flavour to be vaporized at once. Combined with a twisted or clapton coil, the extra nooks and crannies really make the flavors pop.

The Way the Coil Is Wicked

If you wick the coil too tightly, the juice will have trouble travelling up the wicking, resulting in more dry hits, even when the wicking appears saturated. If the wicking is too loose, you will probably end up with hot spots on your coil, also resulting in a very nasty dry hit. This involves some of the trial and error we alluded to before, but for the very best flavour it is worth taking the time to experiment with the best coil wind for you (and your chosen device)

Airflow

Airflow is one of the other things to think about when going for a flavour chasing build. Logically, the less airflow you have, the more flavor you will get. Having wide open airflow will result in an airy draw and a less satisfying hit. Again, it may take some experimentation to discover the best balance for you.

Vapour Juice and Nicotine Levels: The Basics

How much nicotine should I get in my vapour juice? And how to find out how much nicotine is too much? Read on to get answers to some common questions that new vapers and smokeless veterans often ask.

Why Does It Matter What Nicotine Level Is In My Vapour Juice?

Many people who start vaping do so to end their dependence on traditional cigarettes. For them, it’s especially important that, initially at least, their vape juice contains nicotine levels that are similar to those they used to get from cigarettes, otherwise they are likely to fail and go right back to cigarettes.

Over time though, as nicotine itself is addictive, users should ideally cut down their nicotine levels gradually. The good news is that there are plenty of vapour juices out there that allow them to do that without having to go through the sometimes intense withdrawal symptoms that they might trying to quit smoking cigarettes ‘cold turkey’.

Do All Vapour Juices Contain Nicotine?

Absolutely not. As many vapers as there are who are ex-smokers (or nearly ex-smokers) there are those who have never smoked cigarettes in their life, and are simply interested in enjoying vaping. For these folks, there are lots of great tasting 0% nicotine vape juices out there for them to enjoy.

What are Nic Salts?

You may have seen the term nic salts and wondered what they were. Are they vapour juices? Yes, but with a difference.  The term nic salt just refers to the scientific definition. It doesn’t mean it’s infused with the tasty mineral you sprinkle on your chips.

Simply put, nicotine salts are made by mixing pure nicotine (base) with certain kinds of acids and actually, nicotine salts exist in tobacco, naturally. So if you have smoked a cigarette you have experienced nicotine salt. In terms of vaping, however, these are just another alternative, of the many you have when it comes to vapour juices that you might want to try out as you navigate your way through the exciting world of vaping.
