Everything you need to know about vaping e-liquid

Everything you need to know about vaping e-liquid

E-liquid is the flavoured liquid used by many vape devices. Unlike cigarettes, vapes do not produce smoke. But how do they work? Typically, when a vape is turned on and charged enough to be able to function, the battery powers the internal system within to heat up the e-liquid, eventually turning it into a vapour.

Many e-liquids contain not only flavourings, but typically nicotine, and what is known as Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine - alongside other possible ingredients. The ratio of Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerine – or PG and VG as they are also known - will likely impact the vaping experience. Since we have already mentioned that e-liquids contain certain ingredients, you may wonder which ones are these. For a full list of ingredients, simply read the e-liquid packaging, which usually provides information from the manufacturer. One thing is for sure - vape e-liquids are not risk-free and often contain nicotine, which is addictive.

The balance of PG and VG comprise the basis of some e-liquids. The amount of each substance can vary, and this creates what is known as the ‘VG / PG ratio.’ This ratio partially determines a vaping experience, impacting elements like the taste.

E-liquids are designed to work with a vape’s internal design, and picking the right e-liquid to suit a vape kit or a tank is necessary. For example, some e-liquids may be designed to work with a low wattage kit, whereas others, such as e-liquids with a PG/VG balance of 50/50, are not that restrictive and are typically designed to work with various devices and wattage ranges.

Different e-liquids for different devices

Surely, you must have already done some market research in terms of the wide variety of e-cigarettes available out there. But how should you choose the right one? Ultimately, the type of device you seek out will depend on the vaping experience you are looking for. In turn, the type of device will likely also determine the type of e-liquid that goes inside it. It is important to use the correct e-liquid for the device type - that is to say, the e-liquid going into a vape is compatible with the device in use, or vice versa. If unsure, refer to the manufacturer’s advice.

But why do we pay so much attention to using the right e-liquid? It is also useful to understand that mixing e-liquids and using incompatible e-liquids can have certain drawbacks, including an underperforming vape. This is because incorrect e-liquid may clog a device’s elements over time.

Τhe e-liquid will usually sit inside the vape tank and should typically be topped up at the point it begins to run out. Disposable devices, and those that use pod capsules, generally utilise pre-filled e-liquid holders, which slot into the device. These usually do not require refilling. Rather, the disposable vape or pod will likely need to be discarded once the e-liquid inside has run out.

Does e-liquid contain tobacco?

Unlike cigarettes, e-liquid does not always contain tobacco. However, some e-liquids may contain this substance. We recommend checking the manufacturer’s information to determine the exact ingredients. Even if an e-liquid does not contain tobacco, it may contain nicotine, which is an addictive chemical found in tobacco.

How to store e-liquid

Sunlight and exposure to extreme heat or cold can impact the performance of many e-liquids, and such temperatures may also contribute to degradation. By storing unopened e-liquid in its original packaging and at room temperature, the product is more likely to last until it is opened. If you are using IQOS VEEV pods, make sure to consume them promptly after they are removed from the packaging.


In the case of IQOS VEEV, the device makes use of VEEV pods which contain e-liquid. Adult smokers and adult vapers can choose from numerous pod flavours.

IQOS VEEV uses smart digital controls designed to prevent overheating of the e-liquid and burnt taste.

As we draw close to the end of this article, it is worth mentioning that no electronic cigarette or heated tobacco device is harmless, since they contain nicotine, which is addictive. The best thing an adult smoker can make is to quit smoking and nicotine intake altogether.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method.
The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
