Making the transition from smoking to vaping can be scary for anyone. Smoking is as straightforward as buying a packet and a lighter. Vaping, however, requires a bit more thought. If you have been on the fence about purchasing vape products and e-liquids, then read on. Below, you will find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about e-liquids in New Zealand. 

Can Any E Liquid Go in Any Vape Product?

The beauty of e-liquids for sale is that there are so many options from which to choose. You get to play around with the ratio of PG and VG, not to mention choosing from a variety of flavour options. 

However, for a new vaper, there can be a bit of confusion associated with which e-liquids are suitable for which vape products. 

What you choose can depend on whether you have a pod, a mod, and the type of coil you have. Fortunately, when you buy your e-liquids from reputable suppliers, you can contact their team to ask any questions you may have. 

Pods are simple devices that many new vapers buy. They tend to heat your e-liquid at a low temperature and don’t require many replacement parts. 

The type of coil you use can also dictate the kind of e-liquid you can use. A standard 1.8ohm coil goes hand-in-hand with a device at 10 watts or lower. A thin, PG liquid is suitable for such a coil. 

Some people like to blow huge clouds while vaping, so they quite often opt for a sub-ohm mod kit. They tend to be high-powered vapes which frequently require a higher VG content. Anything over 50 percent VG tends to be suitable. In saying that, you also have to factor in the wattage and coil. 

What are Nicotine Salt Liquids?

There are two primary nicotine types: freebase and nicotine salts. In recent years, nicotine salts have become a preferred option by many vapers. 

Freebase nicotine is what you will find in traditional cigarettes. The higher the nicotine content, the harsher the hit will be. However, nicotine salts solve that problem. Nicotine salt is the natural state in which you find nicotine on tobacco leaves. You can vaporise it at lower temperatures, enjoy a smoother hit, and use more nicotine than you would in a freebase form because it’s smoother. 

While freebase nicotine is still popular, many vapers love the vaping experience that comes with nicotine salts. Talk to your local e-liquids expert about what might be right for you. 

How Do I Know What Vape Liquid to Buy?

When you are transitioning from smoking to vaping, you may not know what e-liquid to buy. And that’s okay because it can be trial and error to determine your preferences. However, there are a few things you can consider before you buy what you believe is the right type. 

Think about flavours you like. Many smokers want to transition to a smoking cessation tool that’s as close to smoking as they can get. Therefore, tobacco e-liquids are often a preference. Still, if you have a sweet tooth, there is an abundance of sweet flavours you may like, as well. 

The nicotine strength is another thing to consider. You can opt for no nicotine, or move up the strengths from 3 to 36mg. Nicotine salts are available with higher mg dosages. 

What Ingredients Should You Avoid in E Liquid?

The foundation of most e-liquid is propylene glycol and vegetable glycol. These ingredients are safe, but it’s what some manufacturers put into their e-liquids with PG and VG that may not be. Some e-liquid ingredients of which to be on the lookout for are diketones, fragrance oils, cinnamon, and titanium dioxide. 

If you are not sure what is in the e-liquids you are buying, don’t be afraid to ask. Fortunately, when you buy e-liquids from reputable sellers, you can enjoy peace of mind that they are made with quality ingredients in ISO clean rooms. 

Is it Better to Vape or Smoke?

There is plenty of information out there regarding the health effects of smoking. Current research on vaping shows that it’s far less harmful than cigarette smoking. Vaping exposes users to fewer toxicants. It’s not 100 percent harmless, but it’s a far healthier option than smoking. 

Does 0mg Mean No Nicotine?

When you buy e-liquid, you can often choose the nicotine content. Some people like to start at a high level after smoking, then gradually decrease their level. If your e-liquid says it has 0mg of nicotine, that means it has none at all.
