The nicotine strength listed for e-liquid is the number of milligrams of nicotine per milliliter in a bottle. That means a 10ml bottle of 24mg nicotine e-juice would have 240mg of nicotine in it (24mg x 10ml).
If you smoke Regular cigarettes (like a Marlboro Red), there are approximately 1.2mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 24mg of nicotine per pack (1.2mg x 20 cigarettes).
If you smoke Light cigarettes (like a Marlboro Light), there are approximately .7mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 14mg of nicotine per pack (.7mg x 20 cigarettes).
If you smoke Ultra Light cigarettes (like a Marlboro Ultra Light), there are approximately .5mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 10mg of nicotine per pack (.5mg x 20 cigarettes).
After you have made the transition to e-cigarettes, you may want to try flavors of e-liquids until you find a favorite to use. These include many fruits like strawberries, oranges, peaches, combined with cream, other fruits, tobacco, and many other possibilities.
Regular Cigarettes = E-cigarettes
Unfiltered = 24 mg
Regular = 18 mg
Light = 12 mg
Ultra-light = 6 mg
None = No, 0 mg
Your battery or e-cigarette will have a certain voltage. Your atomizer/cartomizer will have a certain ohm number. What it all really boils down to is that by changing the values volts or ohms resulting power output also changes. That resulting power output is what matters because it directly corresponds to your vaping experience. We need to balance battery voltage with cartomizer resistance to get an ideal vape intensity (6-8 watts or so) without burning out the cartomizer. If the voltage is too low and/or the cartomizer resistance is too high (relative to each other), the watts are low and you get a poor vape (little throat hit, vapor, and flavor). On the other hand, if the voltage is too high and/or the cartomizer resistance is too low, the amps are high and you can burn out the cartomizer.
You might find yourself still asking, “so which ohm rating cartomizer or atomizer should I be purchasing?”. We find the easiest way is to use the table below but everybody will have their own personal preferernce.
eGo Batteries 2.0 - 2.5 ohms. 1.5-1.7 ohms
3.7v (Go-go, Larger eGo, Riva) 2.0 to 3.2 ohms 1.7-2.0 ohms
5v (Variable Voltage) 2.5 to 3.2 ohms 2 ohms
6v (Variable Voltage) 3.2 ohms and up 2.5 ohms
7v (Variable Voltage) 4.5 to 5 ohms 3 ohms
LOWER OHMS OR HIGHER VOLTAGE
Allow more electricity to flow
Creates more heat at the coil
Creates more vapor
Provides warmer vapor
May intensifying or diminish flavor
Will drain your battery quicker
Dry hits are more likely
May cause premature battery failure
Uses more juice per puff, more refilling
HIGHER OHMS OR LOWER VOLTAGE
Allow less electricity to flow
Creates less heat at the coil
Creates less vapor
Provides cooler vapor
May intensifying or diminish flavor
Will drain your battery slower
Dry hits are less likely
Doesn’t cause premature battery failure
Uses less juice per puff, less refilling
E-liquid juices typically contain 4 ingredients: PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin), nicotine, and some flavor extract/concentration. Besides the different amount of nicotine you can have, juice makers use different percentages of PG/VG that you'll commonly see labeled as 50/50, 60/40, 70/30, etc. This is the percentage (%) of PG/VG or VG/PG depending on how it's labeled, but we've seen most common listed as PG/VG. So 50/50 is 50% PG/ 50% VG.
PG and VG is the liquid that helps burn the nicotine to vapor and are both recognized as safe by the FDA and are in many processed foods and cosmetics.
What is PG (Vegetable Glycerin)?
PG (Propylene Glycol) is tasteless and derived from plants. It is used in baked goods, medicines, and cosmetics. The liquid is thinner than VG. While VG produces more vapor, PG produces more throat hit, that some customers may or may not prefer. It may also cause some throat dryness.
What is VG (Vegetable Glycerin)?
VG (Vegetable Glycerin) tastes a little sweet but the flavor is too small for most people to detect. It's used in baked goods, sweeteners, and a filler in foods. The liquid is a bit thicker which helps produce a thicker and a lot more vapor cloud.
Most people should start out with a 50/50 mix which has been determined to be a very optimal blend. As you experience more with different juices that use different blends, you may want something with more VG for more vapor or more PG for throat hit with 60/40 mixes or even 70/30.
An important consideration though is if you have allergies or reactions to either PG or VG, although more common with PG, to buy a blend that uses less of that item.
Always remember not to allow a cartomizer burn dry. You must prime before using.
What is priming a cartomizer?
A cartomizer contains a burning wick and cotton. When e-liquid/juice is absorbed into the cotton, the wick heats up and burns the liquid soaked in the cotton. If the cotton is not wet before first using, the wick will burn the cotton and make a very bad taste. It is very hard to fix and so usually the cartomizer is simply thrown away. Luckily they are not expensive so you will have a few to practice.
How do you prime a cartomizer?
One method is to put e-liquid in the cartomizer and let it sit for 30 minutes so the cotton has time to absorb.
A faster method is to put a few drops of e-liquid on the top, let it sit for a few seconds, and blow from the top to the bottom. Put a napkin on the bottom of the cartomizer so it doesn't drip. If you see e-liquid on the bottom, that means the cartomizer is been completely primed. If not, put a few more drops and blow again. One there's some e-liquid on the bottom napkin, you know it has been completely primed.
This is also another method:
