Everyone is different so your mileage may vary! Some people like to vape away all day while other people like to stick to their designated ‘vaping’ breaks. As a rough guide, an average 20 a day smoker of traditional cigarettes gets through a 10ml bottle every 7 days or so.
What strength Liquid do I need?
The strength of e-liquid needed correlates with the number of tobacco cigarettes smoked per day
If smoking in excess of 20 per day then 6mg is advised.
If smoking around 10-20 per day then 3mg is advised
What is the difference between PG&VG liquids?
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) e-liquid is a thick, slightly sweet liquid that produces luscious clouds of vapour. VG e-liquids deliver less of a throat hit. A minority of users complain about a build-up of phlegm in the throat.
Propylene Glycol (PG) e-liquid is much thinner and produces more of a throat hit than VG – this simulates the feel of smoking more authentically.
However, PG e-liquid may cause sensitivity in some users. We would then recommend using the VG e-liquids instead.
There is e-liquid in my mouth
This can sometimes happen if the clearomizer has flooded, the cartridge overfilled, or if the e-cig has been drawn on too hard. However, the number one cause is keeping your e-cig upside down or putting pressure on the clearomizer by keeping it in your pocket. We suggest keeping it upright at all times to ensure that the liquid is always kept below the top printed line on the clearomizer.
E-liquid may taste bitter so rinse your mouth out with water if this occurs. Use a paper towel to mop up any excess liquid you can see on and around the e-cigarette and make sure it’s as dry as possible before trying to use it again. Please be rest assured that small amounts of e-liquid will not have a negative impact on your health.
What about the health issues?
Electronic cigarettes do NOT contain tobacco so they do not burn in the same way as traditional cigarettes. They do not produce ash, carbon monoxide, benzene or any of the other dangerous by-products which result from burning tobacco.
The vaporization process produces no smell or residue. People nearby do not face the passive smoking dangers that are associated with traditional cigarettes.
Scientific research carried out so far has concluded that electronic cigarettes are substantially less harmful than traditional cigarettes. One study has concluded that the risks are equivalent to those of using nicotine patches. Electronic cigarettes are not for the use of those under 18 and they should always be kept away from children. They are not recommended for women who are pregnant or breast feeding.
