Electronic ecigarettes are getting more popular each day and one of the reasons is for their versatility. Unlike analogs which usually come in only two flavors (tobacco and menthol), ecigs can be enjoyed in a wide variety of aromas with endless possibilities of mixing them and creating your own personal ejuice. Until the boom of the ecig, the only way to enjoy some of these amazing flavors was to use a hookah but now you can have them all at your fingertips.

multiple eliquid bottlesYou will probably spend a lot more time to find your favorite eliquid then you did finding the best brand of ecigarette because there are so many choices out there. We are all different, of course, and we each want specific qualities from an ejuice. Some need more flavorings while others need more vapor and you will need experiment a bit until finding the ultimate combination.

E-liquid, or ‘juice’, is a mixture of about four different ingredients of varying quantities: Water, Nicotine, PG (Propylene Glycol) or VG (Vegetable Glycerin) and flavoring. Each brand tries to find the perfect balance between these ingredients in order to give its users a mind-blowing experience. But, as we said before, we are all different and regardless of how many positive reviews an eliquid has it may taste average to you or it may not suit your taste buds at all. This is why you need to have some guidelines when shopping for ejuice.

The first thing to find the best e-liquid is to decide between a sweet taste, a minty taste or a tobacco taste. At first, many ex-smokers go for the tobacco or mint taste and gradually shift to sweeter, fruitier alternatives.

Secondly, you need to decide between flavor intensity and vapor intensity because you cannot have both. Vegetable Glycerin is responsible for the amount of vapor so if you are a big fan of thick, rich clouds then you should probably search of a high VG concentration. On the other hand, Propylene Glycol is responsible for flavor hence the more PG the better the flavor but at the same time less vapor.

It is also important that the brand uses quality ingredients for their ejuices and they are all listed on the contents list. Also keep in mind that most well known companies have high quality control standards and they test their batches regularly. Some of them even make their eliquid in the US, in their own standardized labs, from local ingredients rather than importing it from China.

You should probably start with 3 to 9 flavors and decide on the best combination for your taste. After finding one that you really love you can search for variations of that aroma and keep in mind that are dozens of companies out there which sell more than 6 flavors.

After becoming more experienced you can even mix up two or more eliquids or build one out of scratch using one of the many online guides.

Keep in mind that finding the perfect eliquid for you is a crucial fact in enjoying your vaping experience and as many vapers can confirm, it is definitely worth it.

Former pack-a-day smoker, I discovered electronic cigarettes back in 2011. Since then vaping has slowly turned into my hobby and my full time job. I’ve tested hundreds of e-cigarettes and mods across the years and constantly used my knowledge and experience to help others make the switch. I’m passionate about technology, I enjoy reading and I love big flavorful clouds.
