Learning how to find a good e-juice doesn’t have to be a matter of trial and error. You can save yourself time and money by following these 5 easy steps so you have a better chance of getting the right e-juice for you and your device on the first try.
Step 1 – Decide what you need in an e-juice
Flavor is the obvious answer, but that is not what you need to know. Decide if you are going to use the e-juice as an aid to quit smoking, to replace smoking in some circumstances, or just because you like vaping. That changes quite a few things about what you are going to look for in your e-juice. You also want to take the answer into consideration when you are picking out your device. There are some very good options for light smokers, and for heavy smokers too that will make vaping a doable thing.
Step 2 – Look at all the flavors, not just the familiar ones
There are a lot of flavors that are offered in e-juice catalogs that go well beyond the taste of tobacco. Think about the flavors you are drawn to in candy, chewing gum and even drinks. For some people, changing the flavor to something totally unrelated to their brand of tobacco makes it easier for them to quit. Here is one secret though, most of the tobacco flavors are created using cacao – that’s the same flavor in chocolate. For some of the fruitier and sweeter flavors you may want to check with those you live with if they have a preference for what they will smell too. This can go miles towards keeping the peace.
Step 3 – Select the nicotine strength
Next, the nicotine strength. It is generally categorized as low, regular and high. High is good for heavy smokers and those who tend to smoke when stressed. Low is perfect for light smokers. If you are wanting to quit tobacco, pick the nicotine level that best suits your current smoking habits. As time goes by you can always start to order e-juice with less and less nicotine. Here is another secret – you can get e-juice without nicotine too. If you don’t need it, don’t order it and just pick the flavor you want.
Step 4 – Select the right size for the bottle
How much to get is the next thing to decide. Most of the bottles you use to fill your device from will be in 5 or 10 ml sizes. A 10ml size lasts most people just over a week. There are also 30 and 100ml sizes before you get into the larger bottles. No matter what size you select, make sure it has a tip and is squeezable so you can easily fill your device. If it doesn’t come like that, you can buy an affordable filler bottle to use with it.
Step 5 – Order one more bottle than you think you need
This last step is what you need to do to make sure that your use of the ecig isn’t interrupted. Order one more bottle of the e-juice than you think you need for a month. When the bottles arrive, mark one as your last. When you finally open that bottle you will know that it is time to place you order again. This is also a good idea if you are just starting with ecigs, this will let you learn how much e-juice you really will be using in a month so you can adjust your future orders too.
