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.
Liberty Flights sells e-liquid in seven different nicotine strengths:
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.
IMPORTANT: Please note if you are buying an e-cigarette kit that uses sub-ohm (below one) atomizers like the Joyetech AIO (All in One) or Aspire PockeX Kit then we recommend vaping a lower nicotine strength e-liquid. We suggest using a 0.6% nicotine e-liquid in a 50-50 or VG heavy e-liquid base if you like a smooth vape, or a 1.2% nicotine strength if you like a good throat hit. While you can vape with higher nicotine levels, most vapers will find the throat hit too harsh.
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. Please note: if you are using a sub-ohm atomizer as noted above then we recommend using a 1.2% or less for vaping.
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.
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.
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.
