E-Cigarette Nicotine Strengths

1.8% vs 18mg Nicotine Strength

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.

There are a couple changes on all the new flavors of WOW juice bottles. The first is they have colored caps, the second is that the nicotine strength is given by percentage. Here,  I will explain the reason behind both changes.

Colored Caps

Vapor4Life’s bottles of juice all have white caps on them. All, except for the new WOW juices. The new flavors come in bottles with different colored caps to signify their strength.

  • 0.0% (0mg) bottle comes with a white-colored cap
  • 0.4% (4mg) – orange cap
  • 0.8% (8mg) – orange cap
  • 1.1%  (11mg) – green cap
  • 1.8% (18mg) – blue cap
  • 2.4% (24mg) – red cap
  • 3.6% (36mg) –  red cap

The reason for this change is two-fold. First, it makes it easier for an order picker to grab the correct strength of juice using this added layer of visual verification. The same goes for someone who vapes different strengths of juice throughout the day. Now all that’s needed is a quick look at the cap color to know what strength they’re vaping.

New WOW Juice Bottles

Percentage Values

Vapor4Life’s juice bottles and carto packs all have their nicotine strength printed on them. They used to all be printed in milligrams  For example, if a label says “24mg” that means the nicotine strength of that juice is 24 milligrams. The WOW Vapor new juice flavors have labels with percentages on them not milligrams. There are a few reasons for this change.

There was always an air of confusion with the old strength listing. It’s one of the most frequently asked questions of new vapers, “what does ___mg mean?” We’ll use 24mg as an example. The milligram strength is based on 1 milliliter of juice. So 1ml has 24mg of nicotine. This means a 24mg bottle of juice containing 30mls actually has  720mg of nicotine in the bottle, not 24mg in the bottle. What 24mg truly means is 2.4% of the liquid in the bottle is nicotine (1mg is a 1000th of a ml). By viewing the nicotine strength as a percentage you can now accurately say how much nicotine is in each drop of juice, no matter the size of the drop, it’s 2.4% nicotine. The strength of the juice hasn’t changed at all, only the label has changed.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion. However, if you do still have questions, come visit me on Vapor4Life’s forum at www.vapor4life.com/forum. Friendly and helpful vapers are always chatting there about everything from juice flavors to electronic cigarette batteries (and a little in between)!

  1. what would really nice to have, especially when try help poeple give up analogs and switch, would be a scale that referenced specific cigarette brands/flavors as to what the best replacement would be.
