Pointers for Enjoying Your E-Liquid: Facts Every Vaper Should Know

Posted by

Electronic cigarettes can be equipped and refilled with a wide assortment of flavoured e-liquid to suit just about any taste – and while this could make for a fun vaping experience, it could still be harmful for you if you use it improperly. This is especially true for first-time vapers who don’t exactly know how the substance works just yet. If you are one of these people, it’s important that you take note of these tips for using your e-cig’s juice:

Milligram Strengths

E-liquids come in various nicotine strength or concentrations, which are measured in milligrams. New vapers are encouraged to use liquids that closely match their average nicotine consumption while they were still using conventional tobacco cigarettes. To know how much you should try at first, here are a few tips written in the Escape the Analog blog:

"E liquid milligram strengths are usually 6, 12, 18, 20, and 24 milligrams per millilitre. A little quick math example will tell you that for five millilitres of an e liquid at 12 mg strength, you will have 60 milligrams of nicotine total. When you use one millilitre of e liquid, you are therefore taking in approximately 12 mg of nicotine. What you use is not completely what is delivered to your body due to it being vaporized, so the strength per millilitre is somewhat less. This also depends on how often you used to smoke."

Choosing the Right Level

Even without the numbers, you can probably get a hint of which concentration might be best for you. For instance, you’d quickly realise that what you’re using is too strong for you, as it will make you feel much light-headed even after just a few puffs – and it could give you a bad throat hit as well. Then again, you ought to know that if you smoke 5 or less cigarettes per day, you may need 6mg/12mg of nicotine, 10 cigarettes per day may require you to fill up with 12mg/18mg, and 10-15 cigarettes per day more or less equate to 18mg of nicotine.


Now, one of the best things about choosing your eliquid is that you have a lot of options when it comes to flavour. For instance, trusted sellers like Vapetime UK LTD offer various brands with flavours like Belgian chocolate, mint, peppermint, caramel, coffee, fruit, tobacco, and a host of unique mixes that you just might love.

Just as it is in traditional tobacco cigarettes, the liquid in e-cigs contain nicotine, which needs to be properly regulated. Stay safe by vaping within your milligram strength – and with this concern out of the way, you can now completely enjoy your e-cigarette experience.
