No matter, if you switched to vaping in order to quit smoking, or to experience an array of different flavours, vaping is definitely a must-try! From providing massive clouds to intense throat hit, vaping will be sure to help you stop smoking especially with the correct e-liquid.
This is perhaps because vaping has an array of flavours to please your taste buds ranging from refreshing mint to rich tobacco, juicy strawberry, sweet chocolate and many others.
As per a research conducted by the University of California, today, there are around 460 vape brands that offer 7,700 different flavours to satisfy your taste buds.
That said, undoubtedly, there are a huge number of flavours that might enhance your vaping experience, however, you might not get the best flavours when your e-liquid is not right for your device. But fear not; there are various ways through which you can make the most out of it. Let’s see how to make your e-liquid taste better.
1. Using Customizable Mods
Every kit comes with its own set of properties. Further, it has its own range of wattage ratings and temperature at which it functions best. However, if you are stuck with an e-cigarette which functions best at just one temperature range or wattage level, chances are high that you won’t be able to fetch the most out of your e-liquid.
Thus, if you want to extract the best flavour from your vaping device, it is highly recommended to choose e-cigs which support a range of temperatures and wattage ratings. This way you would not only be able to taste various flavours but would also be able to judge what works best for you.
2. Reducing the Nicotine Level
Nicotine has its own unique taste. As you increase the nicotine levels, it surpasses the flavour of your e-juice and can even result in a harsher throat hit. Thus, if you are trying to taste the best flavour, it is highly recommended to lower down the nicotine levels and look for the sweet spot of your e-liquid where it will taste the best. This is why sub-ohm vaping is so popular. You do not need to use as much nicotine to get the same throat hit and you get a much better flavour.
3. Choosing the Correct Vape
It is highly recommended to choose a vape with the best quality atomizer. You might also like to go with vapes having clearomizer with bottom coils. Such clearomizer avoid the e- juice from getting absorbed upwards.
You might also like to try sub-ohm vape tanks which are known for providing more intense flavours when compared to traditional clearomizer.
4. Glass Tanks
The make and quality of the tank can directly affect the taste of your liquid. To maximize your experience, it is highly recommended to use glass tanks as compared to plastic tanks as plastic tanks tend to alter the flavour.
5. Selection of Right Coil and Wick
The setup of your atomizer also plays an important role in determining the kind of flavour you can fetch. Organic cotton wicks provide better flavours as they are made up of natural fibres which are free of pesticides and other fertilizers and residues. For the coil, non-reactive metals like nickel are a great option as they do not react and impart a metallic taste to the liquid.
6. Mixing Things
In addition to making use of the above-mentioned factors, it is highly recommended to keep changing flavours. Vaping the same e-liquid for a longer period of time would make your taste buds used to it. This condition is also called as vaper’s tongue. Thus, keep changing the e-liquid’s flavour periodically to avoid getting used to it.
Not drinking enough water can also intensify the problem. It is thus highly recommended to make it a good habit to keep yourself hydrated to experience the best flavours.
7. Maintaining the Vape
Even the best vape mods would not give you the required flavour if you don’t keep them clean. E-cigs are bound to get dirty with the time due to the build-up of e-juice residues. This not only makes your device look dirty but could also impart a burned taste. It is thus highly recommended to clean your e-cig thoroughly once a week.
8. Protecting the E-juice
Your e-liquid might lose its flavour if it is not stored properly. This is because the e-liquid is sensitive to light, air, and heat and therefore, it is advisable to store it in dark bottles in cool places which are away from heat and light. This will also help you in intensifying its flavour.
You might also like to let it sit in a cool place away from direct light for a week with occasional shaking. This will blend the ingredients together and would also enhance its flavour.
9. Preventing Degradation
Degradation of the liquid ingredients can affect the flavour of your e-liquid. Most liquids come with an expiration date of a year or two, but the liquid might tend to lose its flavour within 6 months. However, you can boost the life of your e-liquid by storing it properly, away from light and heat as already discussed above.
10. Let Your E-liquid Steep
You can fetch the best flavour from your e-liquid by allowing it to steep. This would blend the ingredients of the e-liquid properly and would enhance its flavour. While some e-liquids take 2 months to show their real flavour, you should at least give a two weeks’ steeping time for it to show its true flavour.
To speed up the process, it is highly recommended to shake the bottle for 15-20 seconds per day in addition to allowing it to breathe properly. Apart from this, you should taste your e-liquid at definite intervals to get the optimum flavouring.
Getting the best taste and flavour from your e-liquid is dependent on your likings to a great extent. In addition to following the above-mentioned tips, it is highly recommended to taste your e-liquid after making adjustments and see what works best for you.
