What's the Right Vape Juice for my Vape Kit?

Which vape juice is best for my deviceChoose the right vape juice for your device

Today, there are literally thousands of vape juices on the market. However, you need to make sure you know which is the right e-juice for your vape kit. 

Some vape juices are just not designed to go in certain kits, so you won’t get the most out of them.

You may have been tempted by a cheap e-liquid from a petrol station in an emergency, however, putting this in the wrong kit could get quite messy.

In this blog, we are going to tell you everything you need to know in order to find the right vape juice for your vape kit. 

High VG or high PG?

high VG or High PG

First up, let’s tackle whether you need high VG or high PG, to help narrow your choices down. VG is a thicker e-liquid whereas PG is much thinner.

When you use a high PG e-liquid in a sub-ohm tank with lots of airholes then you are going to endure leaks. This is due to it being more porous. High PG e-juices are best going in a starter or basic kit above 1ohms.

High VG e-liquid is much thicker. It is not suited to a starter kit or pod device. High VG is going to be best used in a sub-ohm device where it will produce cloud and great flavour. 

High PG best for:

  • Throat hit
  • Starter kits, pod devices
  • Mouth to lung vaping

High VG best for:

  • Cloud
  • Sweeter taste 
  • Sub-ohm vaping and big tanks 


What nicotine strength do I need?

Nicotine strength do i need

As an ex-smoker, you will no doubt be concerned about the level of nicotine you should get. After all, you don’t want to go too low and crave more, or too high and feel sick. It is a fine balance. 

We suggest that as a guide you follow this:

  • 1-7 cigarettes per day: 3mg - 6mg
  • 8-13 cigarettes per day: 12mg
  • 14 cigarettes and above: 18mg or nic salts e-liquid

As a rule of thumb, we advise those using sub-ohm or high powered cloud devices to not go higher than 6mg. Otherwise you might find it burns your throat!

A quick note on Nic Salts 

Nic salts are extracted from a different part of the plant. They are designed to get into your bloodstream faster and have a longer shelf life. Considering the fact they are high nicotine, the throat hit is much smoother. 

When you use nic salts you will most likely less e-juice as you will need fewer puffs to feel satisfied.

You’ll also curb the craving faster, which is ideal if you only have a short window to get your nic fix. Nic salts also curb the cravings for longer too. 

Flavour choice

You might find that you are overwhelmed by the choices of vape e-liquid. There are honestly thousands and some absolutely great ones too.

On our blog we list 20 vape juices to try before you die, which might help you narrow things down!

There are probably 6 main categories of flavours. Some of these do overlap, for example, you can get menthol twists on a number of different flavours. Here are the categories main:

  • Tobacco 
  • Dessert 
  • Sweets
  • Drinks
  • Fruity

Best juices for MTL 

Mouth to lung vape kit vape juice

First of all, MTL stands for mouth to lung. Mouth to lung is the way in which you inhale the vapor, it is most like smoking. You draw the vapor into your mouth and then into your lungs. 

Devices which have a MTL draw are starter kits and entry-level devices. These are usually the best option if you have just quit cigarettes and want to replicate the act of smoking as closely as you can. The best juices for these kind of tanks is high PG. 

Best juices for DTL

DTL means direct to lung. When you vape in this way you draw the vapor directly into your lungs. This produces a large, dense cloud. It doesn’t replicate smoking in the same way, however, you still get to curb your nicotine craving. 

Vaping in this way requires high VG e-liquid. High VG e-liquids are thicker, as we discussed earlier, and make more clouds. They won’t leak out your larger DTL tank.
