A flavour of e-liquid that a vaper can vape all day without growing tired of it. Often refers to flavours that are not too intense or sweet.
An atomiser is a heating element in an e-cigarette. It contains a wick and coil. The wick absorbs e-liquid and the coil heats it.
The act of creating the biggest vapour production on exhalation.
A coil is a piece of wire in an atomiser that heats e-liquid. The coil is powered by a battery.
The mouthpiece of an e-cigarette.
Coils with a resistance higher than 1 ohm. Smaller vapourisers usually operate with high resistance coils.
Liquid nicotine is made by extracting the nicotine from tobacco plants and distilling it to a clear liquid solution.
Coils with a resistance lower than 1 ohm. See also, sub ohm vaping.
The amount of nicotine in milligrams, per 1 millilitre of e-liquid. (Usually measured in milligrams (mg), but can sometimes come in percentages.)
An ohm is a unit to measure electrical resistance. The resistance of vapouriser coils are measured in ohms. See also, sub ohm vaping.
PG/VG ratio is the percentage of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) contained in e-liquid. E-juices have different VG PG ratios so vapers can customise their vaping experience.
Propylene glycol (PG) is an organic compound. It is a clear, slightly sweet and almost odourless liquid. PG is a key ingredient in e-liquid, used to carry flavours and give vapers a throat hit.
A device that holds your e-liquid bottle internally. When you squeeze your device it feeds e-juice into your tank. Essentially, a bottom fed atomiser.
Steeping is the process of mixing, oxidising, and saturating raw e-liquid ingredients. Steeping ages the vape liquid to enhance its flavour.
Sub ohm vaping is when a vaper uses a coil with a resistance lower than 1 ohm. Low resistance coils let through more electricity. Vapers can vape at a higher wattage/voltage, thus producing large clouds of vapour.
A vape tank stores e-liquid. Tanks are usually made of glass or plastic.
The type of connection the battery uses to attach to an atomiser.
The wick absorbs e-liquid from the tank and sends it to a coil. Wicks are made of cotton or silica. The wick is usually located in the atomiser.
A person who uses an e-cigarette.
The act of using an e-cigarette.
Vegetable glycerine (VG) is a thick, sticky, odourless, clear liquid made from vegetable fats. It is natural and non-toxic. VG is a key ingredient in e-liquid, used to make e-cigarette aerosol dense and white.
