E-Cigarette Nicotine Levels
A helpful guide to picking your nic strength, changing nicotine content, and understanding nicotine levels of e liquid and e cigarettes.
In the vaping world, you’ve probably heard a few different ways to refer to the nicotine content in e-cigarettes. One of the most common ways to measure is by mg/ml, or milligrams per milliliter. You’ll often hear e juice nicotine levels referred to as 6, 12, or 18 for instance. This means there are 6, 12, or 18 mg of nicotine in each milliliter of e juice.
In the early days of vaping, customers would often be confused about the actual nicotine content in a 30 mL bottle of 24 mg e juice. At a strength of 24 mg, our 30 ml bottles contain a total of 720 mg of nicotine, but all those numbers and letters can make your head spin. Now, we label our bottles and pre-filled cartomizers with a percentage instead. Why is this? For one, it’s a simpler way of saying the same thing. So, we label our 24 mg strength bottles at 2.4%, which means each drop of e juice is made up of 2.4% nicotine.
We have more than 150 e juices which are available in 7 different nicotine levels, from a 3.6% for a serious smoker trying to quit, to a zero-nicotine blend for those who have tapered off of nicotine, or prefer the taste of a specific flavor without the nicotine content. You can use the pre-filled carts, or fill e-juice into our proprietary Smileomizers. Check out the quick grid below to find your preferred nicotine strength.
3.6%—For people who are trying to quit smoking and are looking for a comparable nicotine strength in e cigarettes. If you’ve smoked unfiltered or full flavor cigarettes, this is the nicotine level for you.
2.4%—For mid- to heavy smokers who prefer a higher nicotine level, or have recently begun to taper down their nicotine intake.
1.8%—One of our best-selling nicotine strengths, this is a comfortable percentage for social smokers, or vapers who prefer less nicotine.
1.1%—Also a top-seller, our 1.1% strength appeals to light smokers who have just begun their switch to e cigarettes.
0.8%—As you decrease your nicotine intake, this level is a good sweet spot. It’s also a safe place to start if you are a light smoker.
0.4%—Our lowest nicotine strength, 0.4% is an ideal starting point for smokers who have an on-again, off-again habit, or vapers slowly decreasing their nicotine intake. Vapers that use high wattage box mods often prefer this nic level.
0%–There’s no nicotine at all in these e liquids. They’re enjoyed by longtime vapers who have tapered off of nicotine, or vapers who simply prefer no nicotine.
