What is the right nicotine level for me to vape?

When you first step into a vape shop, or start to shop online for a vape device then you will need to know the answer to the question “what is the right nicotine level for me to vape”.

Knowing this will help you to select the right e-juice so that you can get the most from your vape experience and avoid heading back to ciggies to get your nicotine fix.

E-juice comes in a range of nicotine strengths to suit everyone, from zero MG right through to 18mg. The level that is right for you to vape will vary depending on the device you are using and the number of cigarettes you previously smoked per day.

When you are looking to select the right nicotine level to vape you need to consider the device. We recommend that if you are using a Sub Ohm or high powered cloud device then you shouldn’t go any higher than 6mg. If this doesn’t satisfy your craving, or you are using too much juice to get the effect then you might be better to switch to a more basic device and have a higher nicotine content in your tank.

The nicotine level which is right for you to vape will also be determined by the number of cigarettes you previously smoked. Here is a guideline:

  • 1-7 cigarettes per day: 3mg - 6mg
  • 8-13 cigarettes per day: 12mg
  • 14 cigarettes and above: 18mg

This will vary person to person and if you are using a device that has an atomiser or coil below 1.0 ohms you will want to use 6mg if you smoke 8+ per day, or 3mg beneath that.

For some, zero nicotine alone does the job, as its simply the placebo of replacing a habit that helps them.

It is important that you get the right nicotine level to vape to make sure that you are satisfying your cravings to avoid you going back to the cigarettes. You also don’t want to go too high as you might end up feeling a little sick and have a headache due to too much nicotine.
