High VG E-Liquids & E-Juices
If you are a vaping enthusiast, you are likely familiar with the terms such as 'high VG' or 'high VG e-liquids' or 'vg pg'. High VG liquids have been and are continuing to increase in popularity among the vaping community due to their distinct flavour options and incredible vapour production capabilities.
If you're new to the vaping world and you keep hearing vaping terms like 'high VG', 'thick e-liquids', 'vg pg' or others - we completely understand as we've been there ourselves and we help that this blog post will help you understand the e-liquid landscape better; specifically high VG e-liquids.
In this blog, we will discuss what high VG e-liquids are, the differences between vg pg, what they consistent of, which e-juice you need to use with your device, the different types of vaping devices, the benefits of high VG e-liquids and e-juices and even more. We will also provide some tips on choosing the best high VG e-liquids and e-juices for you.
Types of vape kits
Starter kits and pod vape kits can also be broken down further into two categories of refillable and prefilled:
• Refillable kits: allows you to fill the devices tank or pod with whatever e-liquid flavour you like and change the coil when it expires.
• Prefilled kits: these kits you to choose from a selection of prefilled pods that the brand offers and removes the need for messy coil changes.
Starter vape kits
Usually the simplest types of vape kits to get started with and tend to be the cheapest to begin with, starter vape kits tend to offer a reduced amount of features and buttons so anyone making the switch to vaping for the first time can get vaping straightaway with no-fuss.
Pen vape kits
Named appropriately due to how these devices appear, they are a similar shape to a regular pen and some come with a variety of built-in features such as short-circuit protection so you can vape confidently.
Pen-style vape kits are available from a variety of brands, such as the bestselling Aspire PockeX AIO kit.
Pod vape kits
Pod vape kits are also available in either refillable or prefilled, with brands such as Elf Bar offering the Elf Bar Mate 500 which utilises prefilled pods, available in a variety of flavours, or a refillable pod so you can fill it with whichever e-liquid you would like.
Pod vape kits tend to be the smallest of vape kits and are ideal for anyone with an on-the-go lifestyle or for the stealth vapers out there.
Sub ohm vape kits
Sub ohm vape kits come in all manner of different shapes and sizes, but generally tend to be much bigger physically when compared to something like a pod-style vape kit.
These types of vaping kits tend to have larger battery capacity as they need to output high levels of power to vaporise high VG ratio e-liquids to produce masses amounts of vapour.
These kits tend to have an increased amount of features allowing vapours to customise their vaping experience with features such as variable wattage or temperature control.
Regular vape coils
Regular vape coils consists of coils rated with an ohm's resistance of 1.0 ohm and higher. For example a 1.2 ohm resistance vape coil would produce a more similar experience of traditional smoking than a sub ohm 0.4 ohm resistance coil, as it produces less vapour, has a tighter draw, heats up slowly - similar to when smoking tobacco and is designed to be used with 50VG/50PG or higher PG content e-liquids.
Regular vape coils can sometimes come in sub ohm resistances, such as the Aspire PockeX offering a 0.7 ohm resistance coil, however due to the physical size of the coil we would recommend using a 50/50 e-liquid to prolong coil life and create an enjoyable experience for vapers.
Sub ohm vape coils
Sub ohm coils, usually 0.9 ohm resistances or lower, that are physically bigger than regular coils are designed to heat up very quickly to high temperatures, making them ideal for vaporising through high VG e-liquids.
These atomisers tends to have an increased amount of cotton and sometimes even more coils within coils, to help with producing masses amount of vapour and flavour for vapers.
Can I use high VG juice with my vape pen?
This is all entirely dependant on the coil that your vape kit uses - if you're using a vape pen that has 0.9 ohm resistance coils or lower then the answer is yes. If these coils are physically small, you have to bear in mind that they are likely going to have a reduced life-span as they're having to vaporise thick e-juice which can clog up the coil.
Small pod-style vape kits
If you're using a vape kit that is physically quite small, such as a pod-style vape kit, we would always recommend, even if you're using a sub ohm coil in your device, that you stick to using 50/50 e-liquids or e-liquids with a higher than 50 PG VG ratio, to ensure that your devices coils life-span is extended and the vaping experience is enjoyable.
Vape pens with sub ohm coils
If your vape pen uses a sub-ohm coil that is physically big then you are completely fine to use to continue using high VG ratio e-liquids such as 70/30 VG/PG, as this is exactly what the coils are designed to be used with!
What reduces my vape coils life-span?
Just remember that the thicker the consistency the e-liquid, so the higher the VG content, the higher nicotine content, the more flavourings and sweetener's used in your e-juice is going to effect your coils overall life span.
For example a simple vanilla flavour that is 50/50 VG/PG compared to a complex flavour with lots of sweetener and higher VG content will do less damage to your coil in the long-run and therefore improve your coils life-span.
In conclusion we've taken a deep dive into what high VG e-liquids are, what they consist of component wise, the different types of vape kits available on the market, which type of vape device is best suited to you, which type of VG/PG e-liquid ratio you need to use with your type of vape kit and more - we really hope it helped you understand the landscape of e-liquid ratios better!
