E-Liquid Guide for Beginners

This guide contains all the information you need to know about e-liquid. Whether you're new to vaping and need help choosing your first e-liquid, or you've been vaping for a long time and want to know what's in your e-liquid.

Let's start at the beginning, with the most basic question...

What is E-Liquid?

If you've been vaping for a while, you already know the answer to this question. E-liquid is a thick liquid that can contain flavor and nicotine, which is specifically designed for e-cigarettes. Your e-cigarette turns the e-liquid into an inhalable vapor.

Our e-liquid contains four ingredients, which we will discuss in more detail later. But that's essentially what you mean by e-liquid. They produce vapor and release nicotine when desired.

What is e-liquid called?

E-liquid in Ireland is only known as e-liquid or vape juice. If you see any of the names below, rest assured that you can use them for your e-cigarette.

What are the ingredients of e-liquid?

Although e-liquid may seem complex at first glance, the composition is actually quite simple. There are several ingredients and each one has a different job. As already mentioned, our e-liquid consists of four substances:

  • Propylene glycol (PG)
  • Vegetable glycerin (VG)
  • Aroma
  • Nicotine

What are these ingredients used for?

Propylene glycol (PG) – this is one of the two basic ingredients of e-liquid. As mentioned earlier, each ingredient plays a different role. PG is a diluent for e-liquid and, depending on the concentration, makes it more fluid. Propylene glycol is the flavor carrier in e-juices, so the more PG, the more distinctive the taste.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) – This is the second important ingredient, thick with a slight hint of sweetness. It serves a very important function, as it corresponds to the intensity of cloud density during vaporization.

Nicotine - in short, an extremely addictive substance that gives, as every Vaper knows, "that something". Various nicotine strengths are available, but we can also use nicotine-free versions. Due to our TRPR regulations, we can offer limited nicotine strength. This nicotine content ranges from 0.0% (0 mg/ml) to 2.0% (20 mg/ml).

Taste – Let's face it, this is the most exciting part of vaping. The aroma mixes with your e-liquid so you can taste the flavor while vaping. The flavors of juices available on the Irish Vape market are endless. Everyone will certainly find something for themselves.

How does e-liquid work?

E-liquid is an integral part of an e-cigarette. Both are useless gadgets without each other.

Vape stores offer, similarly to e-juice, a huge selection of models of vaping devices, although basically they all work in the same way. E-cigarettes consist of three main components. The battery, the tank, and inside the tank are the Coil Heads.

The battery is the body and the Coil Heads are the heart of your e-cigarette. Depending on the coil you use, your vaping experience may change. Also when deciding which e-liquid to choose. Coil Heads must work with your e-liquid.

Your vapee-liquid will be added to the tank. Coil Heads have an outer metal body with a wire heating element and cotton wool inside. The heating element wire heats up when you press the button on the battery. At the same time, you inhale the e-cigarette, which inhales the e-liquid through the cotton swab. Capillary action draws in your e-juice and brings it closer to the heating element, which then turns your e-liquid into a vapor for you to inhale.

Phew, that was a bit "scientific". But it's only so complicated if you want to know how it works. The most important thing is that the coil forms a team with your e-liquid to produce vapor.

Which nicotine strength should I choose?

This part might involve a little trial and error. But don't get frustrated right away. There is a perfect nicotine strength for everyone out there. The reason for trying it may be because we can give you a rough guide based on how many cigarettes you currently smoke or have smoked in the past, but this won't suit everyone.

You need to choose a nicotine strength that satisfies your cravings and stops you from smoking.

Heavy Smoker – If you smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day, you are classified as a heavy smoker. In theory, this means you need an e-liquid with a higher nicotine strength. We would recommend a strength of around 1.4% (14 mg/ml) or 1.8% (18 mg/ml).

Regular Smokers – If you are a regular smoker, you can get through a day with 10-15 cigarettes. If this is you, a nicotine strength of 1.0% (10 mg/ml) might suit you.

Light Smoker – If you only smoke up to 5 cigarettes a day, you only need a low nicotine strength of 0.3% (3mg/ml) or 0.6% (6mg/ml).

This is not set in stone. A heavy smoker may find that they can get by with an e-liquid as low as 0.6% (6mg/ml). A light smoker, on the other hand, may require a nicotine strength of 1.8% (18 mg/ml) to satisfy their cravings.

Be guided by the information above and check whether the strength of e-liquid is suitable for you. If not, don't panic, just keep searching for your nicotine strength until you find the perfect one.

Does e-liquid taste the same as traditional cigarettes?

We hope not, because if we're honest with ourselves, smoking tastes disgusting. So no, vaping does not have the same taste as smoking. The first point to note is that vaping does not burn the same way as smoking. So that burning taste, that burning feeling is eliminated immediately.

E-liquid comes in so many flavors, and some of them contain tobacco. These come closest to the “taste” of smoking.

Vaping also feels different than smoking. Vapor is “heavier” than smoke, so there is an adjustment period when you first switch to vaping.

Don't worry though, because almost everyone who switches from smoking to vaping gets used to it within a day or two. Plus, there are hundreds of flavors to choose from, and many people immediately give up on the tobacco flavor.

Which e-liquid flavor should I choose?

Unfortunately, every e-cigarette user must answer this question for themselves. The best way is trial and error, it's important not to get discouraged. In such a rich palette of aromas, everyone will certainly find something for themselves.

At www.eliquids.ie we divide our flavors into different flavor profiles. This will help you find the best taste experience for you.

  • Drinks and cocktails
  • Tobacco
  • Sweets and desserts
  • Menthol
  • Fruit

Some vapers will want the tobacco flavor to help them mimic the taste of smoking. Some smokers will want to move away from this flavor immediately and will choose something fruity or mentholated.

The best advice we can give you is to choose something that you like the sound of. However, do not buy a large amount of a given flavor or strength at once until you are 100% sure that it will satisfy your cravings. The last thing you want is useless e-liquids lying around your house because they don't suit you.

What kind of PG:VG ratio should I choose?

The two bases we talked about earlier are PG and VG. As we said, both do different work. This means that your e-liquid will behave differently when you vape due to different ratios of these bases.

What are the different types of e-liquid?

PG E-Liquid – If you look at the PG:VG ratio and PG predominates, then it is a PG E-Liquid. It might look like this: PG:VG 70:30. Any e-liquid that is high in PG will have a slightly stronger flavor because the PG element carries the flavor. There will also be many more throat hits, even at slightly lower nicotine strengths. The PG in e-liquid delivers a pronounced throat hit.

VG E-Liquid – If the VG content in your e-liquid predominates, it is a VG e-liquid. You may see something like this - PG:VG 30:70. An e-liquid that has a higher VG ratio is thicker. It can also be sweeter, and they produce more vapor when you exhale the vapor. This is because VG is responsible for the vapor clouds, there are also fewer throat hits delivered since the e-liquid has less PG.

50:50 E-Liquids - An e-liquid with a balanced base proportion, this is then represented as follows: PG:VG 50:50. This means there is a balance between throat hit, flavor and vapor production. This is why these are our most popular e-liquids.

Which e-liquid is best for MTL?

First, we need to answer the question of what MTL vaporization is. MTL stands for "Mount to Lung". It is essentially a type of vaporization and is the most popular form of vaporization. Most people smoke this way, so most people vape this way.

First, you fill your mouth with a cloud, and after a while you inhale it all into your lungs. Then exhale. Since it is very close to the feeling of smoking, this is the vaping style for all new vapers. It requires limited airflow from the e-cigarette, and the e-liquids that are best suited for this type of vaping are heavy PG or 50:50 e-liquids. Such as Hale or Liqua.

Which e-liquid is best for DL?

Like MTL, DL is also a type of vaporization. DL stands for "Direct Lung". This is rarely used by smokers and almost exclusively by vapers who have been vaping for a while.

You take a drag from the e-cigarette, completely bypassing your mouth. It's like taking a deep breath. It requires a much more open airflow from the e-cigarette, and the e-liquid that is best suited for this type of vaping is an e-liquid with a high VG value. In this case, e-juices such as Shortfills, which have a ratio of 70VG to 30pg or more, work perfectly.
