What Nicotine Strength Should I Use?
Nicotine strength varies for each individual and their needs, which is typically based on the number of cigarettes a person smokes in a day.
Our e-liquid comes in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg nicotine strengths and we also stock a Nic Salts range which features a higher concentration of nicotine of 10mg and 20mg.
Many new vapers make the mistake of choosing the highest strength, which can cause nausea, headaches, insomnia and increased pulse rate, to name a few. If this occurs, then you’re likely using too high of a mg strength. Below is a guide of how to choose the correct strength.

What Does E-Liquid Contain?
All our e-liquids contain four ingredients, the main two being propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) which can be found in many medicines, foods and cosmetics. PG and VG ratios do vary, 50PG/50VG and 60PG/40VG are ideal for starter kits which can be found in our 10ml and Nic Salts Ranges. Certain e-liquid have higher VG ratios, which is created for more advanced kits. Besides PG and VG, our e-liquid contains EU food grade flavourings and nicotine, if desired.
Nicotine in e-liquid is only available in 10ml bottles following TPD regulations, which were introduced in May 2016. Larger bottles or shortfills which come in 50ml do not contain nicotine but have space for the user to add a Nicit Up shot if desired. Please note, shortfills often have a higher VG ratio which isn’t suitable for starter kits.
How Often Do I need To Replace My Atomiser/Coil?
On average, a coil/atomiser needs to be replaced every, one to two weeks, however, this does vary depending on how often you use your e-cigarette.
Frequently using your device throughout the day will cause the coil to burn out, leaving a nasty taste behind. For those who vape less frequently, the coil won’t need replacing as often.
Failing to replace the coil will reduce the performance of your e-cigarette and could make the e-liquid taste burnt.

What e-liquid is suitable for my device?
Lower VG is better suited for starter and intermediate kits due to the coil type. Higher resistance coils work better within thinner e-liquid, something which the PG adds to the mixture. Our standard 10ml e-liquid is ideal for these types of kits with ratios either at 50/50 or 60PG/40VG.
More advanced kits that use lower resistance coils, below 0 ohm are better suited for higher VG e-liquid such as our bespoke KonceptXIX and Shortz range. This type of juice is thicker, which isn’t compatible with starter kits if used the coil will burn out faster, and it may even spit hot e-liquid when being vaped.
