E-Liquid – What’s the Deal?

Life can get a little confusing when it comes to researching electronic cigarettes. There are so many things that you need to take into account. For example, what brand are you going to use? Why style are you going to buy? Are you going to use cartridges or e-liquid? What is e-liquid? What’s the difference between buying cartridges and refilling old cartridges with new e-liquid? We are going to make life a little easier for you – here you are going to learn all about e-liquid.

When you buy e-liquid, you are essentially choosing to refill your empty cartridges, much in the same way as you would fill up a printer ink cartridge when it has run out. By refilling, you are making yourself a little extra work but in the long run, you will save a hell of a lot of money.

Take a look at the price of a packet of cartridges. Now imagine how many of those you are going to need over the weeks, months, years…. It seems like an awful lot of money, doesn’t it? Well, with e-liquids, on average you will be paying just $1 on each cartridge you smoke with around twenty drops of e-liquid.

Of course, you can’t go on refilling the cartridges forever. You should only be looking at refilling them around five to seven times before you dispose of them and purchase new ones. They can get clogged up over time and you will soon notice that they don’t taste quite so nice, and the hit is a bit “nastier” on the back of your throat. If this happens to your cartridges, it is wise to get rid of them and buy a bunch of new ones. With some brands of electronic cigarette, you can get more than five refills per cartridge – this amount will different from brand to brand. One of our team used the same cartridges to give up smoking, only adding a couple more to her collection when she bought a new battery. It took her around seven months to quit smoking completely, reducing her strength of nicotine in her liquid from high to zero, and eventually none. This is when she stopped using the e-cig. This means that her cartridges had lasted her about seven months from start to finish. We would say that, that’s quite a bit more than five or seven refills.

Are you one of the following people?

  • You smoke a lot, therefore you are going to need more cartridges as you will be using the device more frequently than “normal” smokers
  • Someone that will want a big “hit” from their electronic cigarette. I’m personally one of those people – I want my throat to really feel the hit of a cigarette therefore I take a longer, more intense drag from my electronic cigarette. I go through cartridges quite quickly so e-liquid was more convenient for more.
  • You have used an e-cig before and gave up because you found they weren’t quite enough for you. Try them again with e-liquid instead!
  • You want to save some more money

If you are one of those people, give the electronic cigarettes a try using the e-liquid. We promise you it will give you a much better sensation than what you have tried before!
