Frequently Asked Questions

What is vaping?

Vaping refers to the use of an electronic device which heats a liquid turning it into a vapour which the user inhales.

A vape device has three core components.

  • The battery which can be either internal which is recharged via a cable or external which can be removed for recharging.
  • The tank which contains the e-liquid and the coil which heats the e-liquid to form the vapour.
  • The e-liquid which comes in all sorts of flavours and sizes, the most common are 10ml, 50ml 120ml bottles.
How much will it cost me to switch to vaping?

The set-up costs will depend on what type of starter kit or device you choose.  Once you pay for the initial set up the running costs would be for e-liquid and replacement coils. Coils will usually last about two weeks and cost just a few pounds each.

Switching from a 20 cigarette a day smoking habit to vaping could save over £3,000 per year.

What is in E Liquids?

E-liquids contain propylene glycol, glycerine, and flavourings which are found in everyday foods. E-liquid can also contain nicotine (which is recommended if you are using vaping as a way of quitting smoking cigarettes).

The e-liquids made in the UK are very heavily regulated and we sell only products of the highest quality which comply with all current regulations.

What nicotine strength should I use?

Nicotine strength can be guided by the number of cigarettes you smoke per day. 

Generally, the fewer cigarettes you smoke the lower the nicotine strength you will need. 

1-5 cigarettes a day – 6mg

5-15 cigarettes a day – 10mg

15-20 cigarettes a day – 14mg

20+ cigarettes a day – 18mg

If you are using an e-cig to help you stop smoking and you are a heavy smoker then reducing your e-liquid strength to 6mg can be achieved within 3 – 6 months of vaping if desired.

What is nicotine salt?

Nicotine salt is a type of naturally forming nicotine found in leaf tobacco and is the most efficient way to deliver nicotine to your body. The juice is designed to mirror the hit that you would achieve from a cigarette. The salts are absorbed into the bloodstream much faster, delivering an effect within around 6-7 seconds.

Some new vapers find the throat hit provided by freebase nicotine harsh, whereas nicotine salts offer a smoother draw.

Why has my e-liquid changed colour?

Vape liquid can get darker because of a chemical reaction between nicotine and oxygen. Nicotine is a highly reactive chemical and exposing it to oxygen, or even light can cause it to react and turn e-liquid into a brown colour. This doesn’t mean you can’t use it, it is still perfectly fine to use.

What is Mouth to Lung (MTL) & Direct to Lung (DTL)?

Mouth to lung refers to the way you inhale when vaping and it is how most of us inhaled when we smoked cigarettes. You draw the vapour into your mouth and then inhale the vapour from your mouth into the lungs and then exhale, just like a cigarette. Perfect choice for those who want to stop smoking and start vaping.

Direct to lung is a different way of inhaling the vapour, rather than drawing the vapour into your mouth you simply inhale it directly into your lungs. Great choice for those who want a light nicotine dose throughout the day.

What E-liquid flavour do I buy?

Finding your favourite flavour is one of the most enjoyable parts of vaping as there is so much choice.   The taste of e-liquid is so subjective that it can be tough to recommend the ideal flavour, normally new vapers will start their journey with menthol or tobacco flavours.

How often do I need to change my coil?

It depends on how much you use your vaping device, normally for someone who uses it every day most of the day then the coil will last anywhere from 1-3 weeks, whereas people who don’t use it as often can get 3-5 weeks out of a coil.

Why does my vape liquid taste different?

This is down to the coil; it needs to be changed for a fresh one and your favourite tasting liquid will be back.

Which device should I buy?

Devices come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can depend on several factors for instance whether you want to vape Mouth to Lung (mtl ) or Direct to Lung (dtl), whether you want a large or small device, a pod system or a refillable system, your preferred vapour output etc.

How should I charge my vape device?

If your device has an internal battery (built in) then you should use the cable provided within the box and plug it into a device that delivers a small amount of power over time for example a computer, laptop, games console, wall plug.

If you have a external battery (you can remove the battery) then the best way is to use an external battery charger as this will stop charging when full to prolong the battery’s life span and give the correct current to the battery.

What liquid is best suited for my device?

For the Mouth to Lung (MTL) starter kits with coils above 1ohm it is best to use 50/50 vg/pg because this type of liquid is thinner making it less of a stress for the coil to burn the liquid. Using thinner liquids with these types of coils will give a longer life span than if you were to use 70/30 vg/pg.

If you have a Direct to Lung (DTL) device with coils under 1ohm it is best to use 70/30 or 80/20 liquids which are thicker than the 50/50 liquids and better on flavour. If you were to put 50/50 liquid into DTL devices, they would leak.

Will switching to vaping help me to stop smoking?

Yes.  Vaping is recognised by the Government as being the number one tool used by smokers to help them quit. A recent study funded by the (UK) National Institute of Health Research and Cancer Research UK, found that vaping was almost twice as effective as the ‘gold standard’ combination of NRT products in helping smokers quit. Give us a call and we will provide you with the expert advice and support that you need to make the switch.

Is vaping regulated in the UK?

Yes. Vaping in the UK is heavily regulated. The primary regulation for vape products in the UK is the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations 2016.  These regulations impose legal requirements on companies to test devices and liquids and to notify the results to the authorities. All our products comply with the relevant regulations.
