Different Types Of E-Liquids, Explained
To fit a wide range of preferences and devices, e-liquid manufacturers have produced a large variety of compositions. We’ll look at the different types of e-liquid in this blog to help you figure out which one is right for you.
VG & PG Ratios E-Liquids
E-liquids are made up of two main ingredients: vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG). They’re both utilised as diluents in e-liquids, which are compounds that dilute the flavourings and nicotine to make a vapeable fluid. VG and PG are both common ingredients in a variety of foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.
Propylene Glycol (PG) is a clear, odourless liquid with a thin consistency. Its presence in e-liquid gives the sensation of a ‘throat hit,’ which is often compared to that of smoking. This is appealing to users because it lets them to continue to enjoy the sensation of tobacco without the dangerous chemicals or additives. PG is utilised as a carrier for flavourings to ensure that they are equally distributed throughout the e-liquid.
VG (Vegetable Glycerine) is a vegetable oil derivative that is also considered to be a safe substance to consume. It thickens the consistency of e-liquid, resulting in the dense vapour clouds associated with sub-ohm vaping. VG is the substance that produces the vapour.
E-liquids are available in a variety of VG/PG ratios, allowing them to be used in a variety of e-liquids.
50/50 e-liquids are perfect for use with starter kits and pod systems since they contain an equal amount of VG and PG. Small coils are common in these devices, which may easily absorb the thin substance of 50/50 e-liquids. 50/50 e-liquids also come in a larger range of nicotine concentrations than high VG e-liquids, allowing newer vapers to find the nicotine strength that best suits their needs.
High VG E-liquids
High VG e-liquids have a thicker consistency since they have more VG than PG. These e-liquids are ideal for advanced and sub-ohm devices, which include larger coils and more exposed cotton. The thicker e-liquid may be easily absorbed by these larger coils without becoming overly saturated and leaking. Cloud chasers and high wattage devices will benefit from high VG e-liquids because they produce more cloud.
To ensure a good vaping experience and make your coils last as long as possible, consider the sort of device you’re using when choosing an e-liquid. If you use a starter kit or pod system with a small coil and a high VG e-liquid, the coil may burn out prematurely or you may get dry hits since the smaller coils cannot absorb the thicker e-liquid easily. Contrastingly, if you use a sub-ohm kit with a 50/50 e-liquid, you can encounter leaking and spitting. This is because the thinner e-liquid is quite easy for the huge coils to absorb, causing them to get oversaturated, resulting in excess liquid leaking through the airflow and mouthpiece.
