About 50-50 E Liquids
50/50 e-liquids are made to be used with low-powered MTL setups, combining great flavours with powerful clouds - the best of both worlds! Despite containing VG and PG in equal quantities, these are also sometimes referred to as high PG e-liquids, and are great for use in pod kits and starter e-cigarette kits.
For best results with 50/50 shortfill e-liquids, combine them with a nic shot containing the same VG and PG ratio, such as the Nic Nic 50/50 Shot 10ml 18mg, or a nicotine salt shot such as the Nic Nic Salt Nic Shot 10ml 20mg.
50-50 E Liquid FAQs
Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol are the two main ingredients that make up e-liquid in addition to flavourings and nicotine. They are technically sugar alcohols, but don't worry - they won't give you a hangover!
VG is a thick, odourless, slightly sweet liquid which provides big vapour clouds. It is found in many household items including sweeteners, makeup, and baked goods.
PG is a thinner, odourless, flavourless, and clear liquid which carries the flavour of the e-liquid. It also provides a stronger throat hit, which is enjoyed by some vapers. It is found in many household items like toothpaste and makeup.
The ratio of these substances in your e-liquid impacts the flavour, clouds, and how well your vape device can handle the e-liquid.
Higher VG e-liquids are better suited to high powered and sub-ohm devices because they are thicker and take more power to vapourise. They also can clog up coils with their residue, so they might lead to you having to replace coils more often.
Higher PG e-liquids are perfect for a lower powered or pod kit setup where they provide great flavour.
While both of these types of 50/50 e-liquid contain the same amount of VG and PG, freebase nicotine e-liquids contain nicotine while shortfills do not. If you buy a shortfill and want to mix nicotine or nicotine salts with it, you can buy nic shots here.
The nicotine strength of 50/50 e-liquids varies between brands and ranges. For example, the Dinner Lady Sweets range is available in 6mg and 12mg nicotine strengths, while Just Jam includes 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg options.
If you're not sure how much nicotine you want to be vaping, it's a good idea to experiment to find out what works for you. If you're a former heavy smoker who is used to smoking a pack a day and looking to satisfy those nicotine cravings, 18mg is likely a good place to start.
