If you are familiar with the world of vaping, you have probably heard of e-liquid concentrates. In this guide, we’ll take a look at what they are, what they’re used for, and how to choose the best one for you. Let’s start with what they are.
What Are e-Liquid Flavour Concentrates?
When vaping, flavour concentrates offer the combination of flavours from your favourite e-juices but without the PG, VG, and nicotine that make up an e-juice. Flavour concentrates allow you to buy your favourite flavour combination in a ready-mixed bottle and save you the hassle of trying to mix different flavours together to get the taste of your preferred e-juice. For example, the Drip Hacks Roly Poly tastes like a strawberry jam cake.
The Benefits of Flavour Concentrates
Aside from being able to replicate all your favourite flavours, there are plenty of other benefits associated with flavour concentrates. Let’s take a look:
- Explicitly designed for vaping
- Simple to use
- A cheaper option than e-juice
- No hassle, perfect flavour mixes
How to Use Flavour Concentrates
Flavour concentrates are simple to use. You simply need to mix e-liquid. If you’re new to vaping, it’s best to leave mixing e-liquids and using flavour concentrates until you get more acquainted with vaping and have a good understanding of what you’re doing. Once you know how to mix, using flavour concentrates is super simple. Follow the steps below:
1. Make e-juice following your normal process
2. When it comes to adding the flavours, replace your normal mixture with the flavour concentrate
How To Mix Flavour Concentrates
If you’re new to mixing, you will need to purchase a bottle each of PG, VG, and a nicotine base like concentrated nicotine. You will also need syringes with large-gauge needles and scales are handy if you have some on hand. Finally, get yourself a few glass bottles with drippers and child-proof caps to store your mixes.
It may take a few attempts to get the levels of nicotine, PG, and VG correct. Trial and error work well or, alternatively, you can use a mixing calculator to help you perfect your mix. There are several apps available to download that can help you measure the right ratio for your mix. Try to be as accurate as possible and be sure to give your mix a strong shake before using it.
It’s not recommended that you vape flavour concentrates directly. Always mix with PG and VG before vaping to avoid unpleasant tastes and damage to your vaper.
How To Decide How many Concentrate To Add
While it varies depending on the mix, there are some general guidelines when it comes to how much concentrate to add. Most vapers recommend between 15% and 18%, although if you’re new to mixing you may want to start a bit lower (say, 10%) and see how you go.
Making your own e-liquid mixes may not be difficult, but flavour concentrates make it even easier. They allow you to get the flavour you want and the perfect mix every time. As well as taking the guesswork out of creating the flavours you crave, they also save you time and money. If you’re new to mixing with flavour concentrates, it’s important to follow the instructions laid out in this guide carefully and avoid vaping flavour concentrates directly. Other than that, it’s a quick and easy way to get the flavours you want without the hassle.
