What is E Liquid

E Liquid is the solution that you put into an Electronic Cigarette's clearomizer or tank. The solution contains the 4 ingredients - nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavorings. It creates the vapor which you exhale that mimics the traditional smoke from analogue cigarettes.

The strength of an E Liquid is dependant on the level of nicotine content.

0mg = None
3mg = Extra light
6mg = Light
12mg = Regular
18mg = High

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance.

The propylene glycol and glycerine are combined in E liquids to act as the carrier for the nicotine and flavourings, they can be mixed in different ratios to provide differing vaping experiences.

Propylene Glycol is used in food products, as an ingredient in food coloring and also used as an additive in various medicines, Propylene Glycol is non toxic.

Vegetable Glycerin is a thick and sweet vegetable based liquid. Vegetable Glycerin is non toxic.

 
I am getting a dry mouth and or tongue

Frequent vaping can cause dehydration issues such as a dry mouth and tongue, if you experience any of the symptoms then you may not be drinking enough water, drink plenty of water before during and after vaping sessions, if symptoms continue you should seek your doctors advice.

 
What is an Electronic Cigarette

An electronic cigarette or e-cigarette is a handheld electronic device that vaporizes a flavoured liquid. The user inhales the vapor. Using e-cigarettes is often called vaping. The liquid in the e-cigarette, called e-liquid, is usually made of nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavouring's. some e-liquids do not contain nicotine.

 
Am I a chain vapor

You should take a break after 4 to 6 draws, more than this and you could be classed as a chain vaper which only serves to ruin the vaping experience, put excessive strain on your vaping device or cause over heating, overheat the coils wick and burn it giving all future vaping sessions a burnt taste until a new coil or clearomizer is fitted.

 
Which E Liquid is right for ME

Propylene Glycol has the effect of giving a throat hit which you would normally expect from analogue cigarettes, whilst Vegetable Glycerin contributes greatly to the amount of visible vapor that is exhaled.

At vaporcraze we supply E liquids in various ratios of PG/VG such as 70/30 PG/VG, 40/60 PG/VG, 30/70 PG/VG and 20/80 PG/VG, with around 500 variations of E liquid nicotine strength, PG/VG ratio and flavour we are sure to the one that hits the spot for you.

Flavourings are added to the E liquid to provide your perfect vaping experience, with flavour being so  much of a subjective sense, it is true to say that virtually all flavours are loved by some and loathed by other, the trick is trial and error to find your ideal flavour.

Why do I get a burnt taste

If your E Liquid gets over heated you are likely to experience a terrible burnt taste and smell, you are possibly not taking enough breaks between vaping sessions, drawing and holding the fire button down for too long, your coil or clearomizer could be burnt and requires changing, you should be treating your vaping device more kindly, allowing it to cool down between vaping session. To ensure you maintain a goog vaping experience your coil or clearomizer needs to get hot enough to vaporize the E liquid and not so hot that the coil overheats, dries out and burns, as a rough guide you should not need to hold the fire button down for longer than 4-5 seconds.

Always, Always allow the coil on a new clearomizer or tank to fully soak with E Liquid for around 5 minutes before first use, otherwise your coil will be burnt and giving off a burnt smell and taste right from your first vape.

 
How can I improve my vaping method

There two general types of vaping method, "Mouth Draw" where the vapor is drawn into the mouth then inhaled after filling the mouth cavity, and "Lung Hitters" where the vapor is inhaled in one unbroken action.

Both methods benefit from a few simple techniques.

Over a second or two take a few quick draws then expel, this will heat up your coil and prime it with E liquid, then take a slow and even draw over 2 or 3 seconds and hold in for a few seconds allowing the body to absorb the nicotine, allow 20-40 seconds to feel the effects of the nicotine.

If you take a quick or un primed vape then exhale immediately, you will not not feel the full effects of the vape.

 
How does Ohms affect my vaping experience

An ohm is a unit of resistance, the lower the resistance of your atomiser, the more electricity will flow through it. Increase the amount of resistance and less electricity will flow through. So when you use a lower resistance atomiser, and more electricity flows through, you will find the following:

More heat is generated at the coil
More vapour is generated
You may experience a more intense flavour
Vapour will be warmer
Your e liquid will be used up more quickly
Lower Ohm coils may result in premature battery failure

The above may all be positives, On the negative side:

Your battery will be drained more quickly
Battery life may be reduced
E-Liquid will be used more quickly
Atomiser life will be reduced (very low ohm atomisers may only last 2-3 days)
You are more likely to experience a dry hit

Obviously, when you use a high resistance atomiser the opposite will happen:

Less electricity flow
Creating a reduced atomiser heat
A reduced amount of vapour
A cooler vapour
You may experience a less intense flavour
Result in slower battery drainage
Use less e liquid as compared to a lower ohm level

But on the plus side:

Battery life will be longer
Less E Liquid will be used
You will be less likely to get a dry hit

 
Which resistance should I use

There’s no single answer it depends on you, the vapour and throat hit you prefer, as well as the voltage you combine with the ohms.

You’ll also find that different e-liquids react differently, and that the resistance used has a big impact on the flavour, so it’s definitely an area for experimentation.

 
What effect does a Variable Voltage battery have

The resistance of your atomiser is not the only thing which effects the amount of vapour, flavour and throat hit that are produced. It also depends on the amount of power flowing through your atomiser.

There are two common types of ecig batteries which allow different amounts of power to flow through your atomiser, which are known as variable voltage and variable wattage.

As we have seen, you can get a more intense experience by lowering the resistance of your atomiser. You can also do the same by increasing the amount of power flowing through your e-cigarette. That may sound complicated, but usually there’s nothing more to it than pressing an up/down button or rotating a wheel.

But what if you want more vapour again? Then you can combine a low resistance atomiser with a higher voltage to get even more vapour. But this does come with its own problems – you are far more likely to burn through atomisers or get a dry hit, and atomiser life will be dramatically reduced.

 
Variable Voltage vs Variable Wattage Devices

Essentially, the difference between variable voltage and variable wattage is a bit like the difference between an automatic and a manual car. With a variable voltage device you manually control the amount of power (voltage) going through your device.

The amount of energy that is actually output will depend on how the resistance of your atomiser interacts with that power flowing through it. With a variable wattage device, however, rather than telling the device how much power you want to flow through your atomiser, you tell it how much power (wattage) you want it to output. The variable wattage device will then automatically adjust the power going through the atomiser (the voltage) to produce the power output you need (the wattage).

To put it another way, watts is essentially how much power the e-cig produces and voltage is how much power is put through the device. So, as you increase the wattage the voltage also increases and vice versa. Voltage is not the only factor which affects wattage – you also need to take into account the resistance of the coils. Lower resistance coils produce more flavour, vapour and heat at a lower voltage than higher ohm coils because they use more watts.

For example, if you have a 1.8ohm coil running on 3.7 volts you’ll get an output of around 7.3 watts – a decent vape. However, if you change the coil to a higher resistance of 2.8ohms you will notice a considerable decrease in flavour, vapour production and heat, as the wattage will be lower (around 4.4 watts) and you will need to increase the voltage to increase the wattage and thus get a better vape.

Because lower resistance coils use more wattage, they tend to generate more heat and can burn out quicker than a higher resistance coil would.

 
What Does mAh in E-Cig Batteries Mean

Essentially the greater the mAh of your battery the longer it will last before requiring re charging.

 
What Is Sub Ohm Vaping

So, we’ve seen that by lowering the resistance and increasing the voltage we get more vapour, more throat hit and sometimes more flavour.

Sub-ohming takes this to extremes by vaping at a resistance of less than 1 ohm. While this can produce massive amounts of vapour, it also puts stress on both the battery and the coil in your Clearomizer.

It’s often done on a mechanical mod, which has no electrical safety switch and may increase the risk of an exploding battery if not used correctly. Until recently, sub-ohm vaping has been reserved for experienced vapers who want to push the boundaries with rebuild able atomisers.
