The Best UK & US Made E-Liquids

E-Liquid can be as simple or as complicated a topic as a vaper wishes to make it. Many people are happy inhaling their liquids via disposable manufactured cartridges, while others perform feats of alchemy blending flavours into their own special concoctions. In the middle are the majority who use a clearomizer/tank based system that requires them to personally top up their juices every so often. Here we'll take a look at some of the main issues regarding E-Liquid and what to be aware of when looking to make a purchase.

What Is E-Liquid? Is It Safe?

What Is E-Liquid? Is It Safe?

Tobacco cigarettes contain around 1200 different poisons and carcinogenic substances - E-Liquid contains precisely zero. The only ingredient they have in common is nicotine, which has never been scientifically shown to be dangerous (unless consumed in extremely high quantities).

E-Liquid is comprised of a little nicotine (strength varies between manufacturer/brand, but usually available anywhere between 0-24 mg nicotine), propylene glycol which is a syrup like food agent contained in many everyday consumables, the food additive vegetable glycerin used to bind many medicines and foods, and finally flavorings derived from those found again in many foodstuffs. That's it.

There's absolutely no evidence that any E-Liquid made from these four ingredients alone is bad for your health. However it is important when vaping to try and make sure that the liquid is good quality and adheres to local standards - there are many overseas manufacturers who produce poor quality E-Liquid that may have unwanted additives.

So Where Should I Buy E-Liquid?

So Where Should I Buy E-Liquid?

Running on from the point above, always buy E-Liquid from a reputable vendor that is happy to certify that their liquids are tested, meet standards and ideally 100% organic where possible. Like most things E-Liquid can vary in price but even premium names are comparatively much cheaper than a pack of average cigarettes and will last far longer too (with the advantage of also not killing you).

The best deals are always to be found online but again make sure you're using a reputable vendor. Super cheap E-Liquid will likely be imported and low quality, sadly that's a fact of life. Good E-liquid will be professionally branded, sometimes as a side-line of device manufacturers, be reviewed (massive advantage of buying online) and almost always available at discount for bulk orders. You can of course pick up a bottle at a local newsagent or supermarket - but be wary as these are often overpriced and very average - suitable for emergencies only!

Different strokes for different folks, although considering that the vast majority of vapers are reformed smokers obviously a good tobacco flavour is a decent place to start. Former smokers are advised to start off pretty strong both in terms of nicotine and 'style' of tobacco flavouring. From experience we've found that only the strongest 'hand-rolling' style was powerful enough in the early days to deliver genuine satisfaction.

There's absolutely thousands of E-Liquids to choose from, ranging from liquids produced by international conglomerates to cottage industry part-time enthusiasts. Reviews don't tend to lie!

Can I Make My Own E-Liquid?

Can I Make My Own E-Liquid?

Theoretically yes but it may be a bit more hassle than it's worth. All the necessary ingredients can be sourced easily and legally, but getting it right is the hard part and will likely require plenty of trial and error. More people prefer to mix their E-Liquids to create personal favourites, and this is easy and fun to try with much better likelihood of success!

How Long Does E-Liquid Last?

How Long Does E-Liquid Last?

This depends entirely upon usage and style of vaping. A heavy user operating a very cloud producing device such as a box mod will tear though liquid far quicker than a casual user on a generic vape pen. As a very rough guide assume that for a moderate vaper a 30ml bottle will last a fortnight or so, likely longer but it really will vary for everyone. Remember that users of non-disposable devices will need to change their atomizers/coils every so often as these deteriorate over time and will start to taste unpleasant towards the end of their lifespan. Every couple of weeks or so is about right in general, and luckily they're very cheap.
