There are 3 ingredients in e-liquids
This is normally a Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) solution, occasionally distilled water is added as a thinner.
If the E-Liquid contains nicotine, the amount of nicotine will be displayed on the bottle. Due to current legislation, anything containing nicotine cannot be sold in a greater volume than 10ml and cannot be stronger than 2.0% (20mg).
These are all either food grade or pharmaceutical grade additives.
Nicotine in its concentrated form is classed as a poison. However, in the e-liquid in our ranges, it is so diluted that it poses no real risk.
E-liquid comes in three main types: standard (high PG or 50/50 VG/PG), high VG, and short fill. PG stands for Propylene Glycol, and VG for Vegetable Glycerine, both of which are the base product that most e-liquids are made from.
Standard e-liquid is often used in “mouth-to-lung” vaping, which is designed to closely replicate smoking cigarettes. Standard e-liquid tends to be cheaper over time, as the liquid lasts longer, and in some cases can be better for those quitting smoking, as the concentration of nicotine can be higher in standard e-liquids. You get more “throat hit” when using standard e-liquid, which, again, replicates the experience of smoking cigarettes.
High VG e-liquid is less common than the other two types. It can usually be used in either mouth to lung or direct to lung tanks, and is quite similar to standard e-liquid, except that you tend to get more flavour and cloud out of it than standard e-liquid in exchange for a reduced throat hit.
Short fills are gradually becoming the most popular e-liquid type, in part because of the new laws surrounding e-cigarettes that prohibit the sale of any e-liquid containing nicotine to 10ml in a bottle. Short fill e-liquid contains no nicotine (you add it in yourself after purchase) and can therefore be sold in larger bottles (we sell up to 100ml). The result is that you get better value for money, as you’re not paying for extra packaging. Short fills tend to be low nicotine and high VG, which produces a more intense flavour experience and larger vape clouds.
Tl;dr – This entirely depends on your frequency of use and the type of e-liquid and kit that you use.
If you’re using a low resistance coil at a high wattage non-stop all day every day, a 100ml bottle of e-liquid may only last you 3 or 4 days or less, whereas the same setup but with occasional use – say, a few puffs once per hour – may see the same 100ml bottle lasting well over a week. Standard (high PG) e-liquid can also last longer than high VG or short fill e-liquid, because it tends to be vaporised at a lower temperature, which means that it is used up slower. Again, though, a person who uses their standard e-liquid repeatedly throughout the day, versus another person who uses high VG very occasionally will see their e-liquid deplete much faster.
Lithium Ion batteries are safely used in millions of devices every day. If you have a smartphone then you’re probably already doing so.
This does not mean that the batteries are completely without risk, however. There are some considerations associated with such high energy devices that users should be aware of.
A Battery will never explode unless it is mistreated!
Simple: a battery goes inside a mod to power it, a mod is a device that is powered by one or more batteries and allows you to regulate the output of the battery.
Removable cells are batteries that can be removed from your device and charged externally. Many devices allow you to charge the batteries while they are installed in the device by plugging the device into a mains power supply.
There are many factors that affect battery life. At the simplest level, the mAH (milliamp hours) rating of the battery is a good indicator of the battery’s lifespan. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last.
Other factors that can affect battery life are:
Of course. All batteries have a limited lifespan and will eventually need replacing. You’ll know when your battery is on its way out, because the amount of time you can use it before needing to recharge will start to decrease. Some batteries can last a year before this happens, and some will be more or less than this.
One thing to bare in mind when choosing a new device is whether it has removable batteries or not. Removable battery replacements can be purchased relatively cheaply, but if your device has built-in batteries, when those batteries go, you’ll need to replace the whole device.
Due to current legislation, all tanks are restricted to a 2ml maximum capacity. However, some tank manufacturers do sell tank extenders or bubble glass that will increase a tank’s capacity.
It depends on what’s broken. If it’s the coil or glass, replacements can generally be purchased from us. If you have broken the tank housing, you’ll usually need to buy a full replacement. However this doesn’t happen very often, because the tank housing is generally quite robust.
Well now that’s a whole conversation in itself! The short answer is that it depends on what you want to get out of vaping and how you want to vape.
Some tanks are designed to help replicate cigarette smoking, others are designed for increased cloud production and flavour. Your best bet is to read up on the subject online, or speak to our staff and ask for advice.
No, this is normal; it’s just the coil heating the liquid.
Use this simple “formula”: Crackling = good, gurgling = bad.
If your coil is “gurgling”, then you either have too much extra e-liquid on the coil, or the coil needs to be replaced. First off, try opening up your tank and drawing some of the juice off your coil with a piece of tissue. If this doesn’t work, then it may be time to replace the coil. If you still experience the issue after this, please contact us for advice, and if there’s an issue with your device and it’s within our warranty period, we’ll replace it.
The coil inside your tank is receiving power from the battery. It is working hard to vaporise your e-liquid and has a working temperature of between 200 & 300 degrees Celsius. It will get warm and depending on power setting and tank design some may even get hot, especially if you are using your device continuously. If you notice the atomiser getting uncomfortably warm, just put it to one side to cool for a moment before vaping again.

No, it should not taste like burning.
In most cases, this is a sign that your coil needs replacing. Coils can last anything between 1 day and 4 weeks, so there’s no exact time period after which you should change them.
Some other causes of and solutions to burnt taste are:
