Vaping is so great because it can be personalised, edited to your own tastes, and so knowing the ways in which you can give your vape flavours that extra punch are crucial for an open minded and varied vaping experience.

Most people go for the same old vape mixtures time after time, but where’s the fun in that?

There are thousands of vape flavours on the market, and whilst flavours such as summer fruit and cookie dough may remain fan favourites, there are plenty of other factors you must consider when vaping. Whether it’s opting for a smoother vape hit or a heady nicotine rush, finding the right sensations and texture are crucial for the vaping connoisseur. Vaping is so great because it can be personalised, edited to your own tastes, and so knowing the ways in which you can give your vape flavours that extra punch are crucial for an open minded and varied vaping experience.

How much nicotine do you need?

Standard pre filled vape devices have a maximum limit of 20 mg per 10 ml of vape juice. The minimum amount is 3 mg or 0 mg and many vape flavours will give you different nicotine concentration options. The higher the concentration, the bigger the throat hit, and the sharper the inhale. What’s more, you can find a wide range of short filled vape juices which come without nicotine. These give space in the bottle to add your own nicotine shots, meaning that you can vape with concentrations which are as high as you like.

PG Aand VG ratios

Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine ratios will bring a balance of flavour and smoothness to their varying mixtures. The higher the PG, the sharper the taste and throat hit. This is due to the PG compound being the carrier of flavour and nicotine in a e liquid. On the other hand, VG compounds add thickness and viscosity to the solutions, leading to VG heavy juices being a smoother draw.

What is MTL and DTL vaping?

There are two main styles of vaping. These are Mouth to Lung vaping and Direct to Lung. Whilst lower powered devices such as the cigalike and vape pen use mouth to lung vaping, direct to lung is reserved for hire powered sub ohm and variable voltage and wattage devices. DTL vaping refers to inhaling vapour and allowing it to travel straight down to your lungs, as opposed to bringing it into your mouth first, like with Mouth to Lung. Mouth to lung vaping is popular with recent ex-smokers, who prefer it due to the similarities in inhalation styles to their former habit. DTL vaping often uses higher VG liquids due to the amount of vapour being inhaled, whilst MTL use higher PG liquids.

Vape devices and their differences

Below are some of the devices you can choose from.

Sub Ohm

Sub Ohm devices have lower resistances and so are far better for higher VG liquids, giving you more vape juice and thicker clouds on the exhale.

Vape pen

These simpler devices are on the mid-range of power levels, and so can chop and change between higher PG and VG mixes, depending on the user’s preferences.

Pod Mods

Pod mods often use nicotine salts to make more potent the nicotine hit from their vape juices, this means that they are naturally higher in PG than they are VG.
