Every bottle of e-liquid has a label expressing the amount of nicotine that the e-liquid contains. In some cases, you'll see the nicotine strength displayed as a percentage such as 1.8%. In other cases, you'll see the amount of nicotine -- such as 18 mg -- per ml of e-liquid. The higher an e-liquid's nicotine concentration, the more nicotine you'll absorb each time you puff on your e-cigarette -- so choosing the right nicotine strength is an essential part of having a satisfying, enjoyable vaping experience.

What Nicotine Levels Are Available?

Liberty Flights sells e-liquid in seven different nicotine strengths:

  • 0.0%: No nicotine
  • 0.3%: Lowest strength nicotine
  • 0.6%: Ultra low nicotine
  • 1.2%: Low strength nicotine
  • 1.8%: Medium strength nicotine
  • 2.4%: High strength nicotine
  • 3.6%: Highest strength nicotine

If you're new to vaping, e-liquid strengths don't mean anything to you yet -- so we'd like to provide some recommendations that can serve as a starting point. These recommendations are only general guidelines; you should use your first experience with an e-cigarette to determine your future needs. If you find your first puffs from an e-cigarette harsh or unpleasant, it's likely that the nicotine strength is too high. If you use your e-cigarette often and exhaust your supply of e-liquid quickly, you may need to increase your nicotine strength.

Average Smoker: 10-20 Cigarettes Daily

For most current smokers, we recommend the 1.8% nicotine strength as a starting point. It's the nicotine strength that we include with all of our e-cigarette starter kits. If you smoke around one packet of cigarettes per day, you'll likely find the 1.8% nicotine strength very satisfying.

Light Smoker: 5-10 Cigarettes Daily

If you smoke around half a packet of cigarettes per day or less, you may find the 1.8% nicotine level a bit too strong for your needs. The 1.2% strength may be perfect for you.

Social Smoker: 0-5 Cigarettes Daily

If you sometimes go an entire day without smoking or only smoke on the weekends, your nicotine needs are very low. You'll probably be very happy if you replace your occasional tobacco cigarette with an e-cigarette at the 0.6% or 0.3% nicotine strength.

Heavy Smoker: 20+ Cigarettes Daily

If you smoke more than a packet of cigarettes daily or prefer unfiltered cigarettes, you may require a nicotine strength higher than 1.8%. If the 1.8% strength leaves you unsatisfied, we recommend trying the 2.4% strength before you step up to the 3.6% strength. The 3.6% strength is a very high level of nicotine that only a few smokers require. We sell our Menthol, Tobacco Virginia and XO Supreme Tobacco e-liquids in these higher strengths.
