Choosing the right nicotine strength is an important decision for novice vapers. Too much nicotine and you might cough, while weak e-liquid can leave a slight aftertaste. Or worse, you could spend a lot of money on a big bottle or pack only to find that the nicotine strength isn’t high enough for your needs.
Vaping liquids are available in strengths starting with zero nicotine and going all the way up to 30mg/ml. navigating these levels can be confusing at first, but it doesn’t have to be! In this article, we’ll help steer you in the right direction when choosing nicotine strength from the range on the market.
3-6 mg/ml – low range
This range is typically favored by “Draper” vapers, users of rebuild atomizers (RDA, RBA), or more modern “sub-ohm” tank systems. Basically, it’s because they want to switch more often and use more puffs to get the same amount of nicotine.
Additionally, atomizers and sub-ohm devices produce significantly more vapor than first-generation customizers and vaporizers (due to their construction and airflow). Using a high-intensity nicotine E-liquide with a sub-ohm atomizer packs a lot more punch than a standard customizer, for example.
6-12mg/ml – Medium
This selection is generally a good start for moderate to light smokers looking to use a “tank” device or atomizer. If you’re trying to switch to a smoking cessation treatment like nicotine gum, this may be the best level for you.
12-18 mg/ml – medium high range
This collection is ideal for heavy smokers or those who smoke with high nicotine devices or for beginners, such as pencil-shaped e-cigarettes. As this is a particularly high level, it is ideal to start with 18mg/ml and decrease (or increase) the level from there until it is ideal for consumption. Daily Unable to find a point.
It is important to note that nicotine has its own flavor which changes the liquid in your vapor. Also, when inhaling, it’s easier to absorb more nicotine than intended, which can make you feel a bit high even if you smoke regularly.
18-36 mg/ml – high range
Although these high nicotine levels are generally only recommended for heavy smokers (those who smoke more than 2 packs a day), it is also worth keeping an eye on this level if you smoke a pack a day. Granted, it’s a potent vape, but a 2014 study found that new vapers who start using e-liquids over 20mg/ml have a higher success rate when it comes to vaping. Is it about quitting smoking and changing their habits?
