A helpful guide to picking your nic strength, changing nicotine content, and understanding nicotine levels of e-liquid and e-cigarettes. When you're switching from smoking to vaping, one of the most important things you need to know is what e-cigarette nicotine strength to start with.In the vaping world, there are a few different ways to refer to the nicotine content in e-cigarettes. 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.At Vapor4Life we label our e-liquid bottles, e-cigarettes and pre-filled cartomizers with a percentage instead. 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.Check out the quick grid below to find your preferred nicotine strength.
For people who want to switch from cigarettes to vaping, this is a comparable nicotine strength to unfiltered or full flavor cigarettes.
For mid- to heavy smokers who prefer a higher nicotine level, or have recently begun to taper down their nicotine intake.
One of our best-selling nicotine strengths, this is a comfortable percentage for social smokers.
Also a top-seller, our 1.1% strength appeals to light smokers who have just begun their switch to e-cigarettes.
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.
One of our lower nicotine strengths, 0.4% is an ideal starting point for smokers who have an on-again, off-again habit. Vapers that use vape mods and sub-ohm tanks often prefer this nic level.
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.When you start vaping, you can choose your ideal nicotine level in our pre-filled carts or fill proprietary Smileomizers with e-juice. Our disposable e-cigarettes come in a set nicotine level that's tailored specifically for smokers who want to start vaping. We have more than 150 e juices available in 7 or more different nicotine levels, from a 3.6% for a serious smoker trying to switch to vaping, 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.To learn more about how to transition from smoking to vaping, check out our e-cigarettes and start your tobacco-free journey today.

Hi! I have a Question 1.8 is that the lowest nic? I've been using 5.0 and than now 3.0 mostly of what you have in stock, but your out of those, but have 1.8 in stock Cappuccino. So, is that lower nic. And would that satisfy me at that lower nic?
That is the lowest nic for the Z-Pods. The Zaero is available in nicotine free. There are too many factors to know for sure if 1.8 is satisfying, how many drags you take could offset the lower level pretty easily.
But the drop from 5 percent to 3 percent is greater in total than the drop from 3 to 1.8 (2 vs 1.2). In both cases, the lower nicotine level is 60 percent of the higher one: 3 is 60% of 5, 1.8 is 60% of 3.0.
The ingredients in the Vapor4Life prefilled cartridges are: Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin and Flavorings.
If you are concerned about Vitamin E acetate, not only is it not found in our products but the CDC did not find vitamin E acetate in any of the nicotine vaping eliquids they tested. The CDC explained why this was the case in a summary they printed in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Check out our article on the the CDC's conclusions for additional information:
Here is the CDC on vitamin E acetate and why it is not used in nicotine eliquids:
“Pure THC oil has a viscosity like that of vitamin E acetate. Cutting THC oil with vitamin E acetate has been reported to be common in the illicit market. The FDA reports that most case-associated THC product fluids contain vitamin E acetate, at an average concentration of 50% by weight, ranging from 23 to 88%.
By contrast, the FDA detected no vitamin E acetate in 197 case-associated nicotine products analyzed to date. The viscosity of vitamin E acetate makes it undesirable as an additive to nicotine solutions; the propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin in nicotine solutions create a fluid with a much lower viscosity than that of vitamin E acetate.”
I just started vaping and bought the SMOK x priv baby and put in the mist fix 1.8 15ml juice in but the when I fire the vape it doesn’t produce a lot of smoke AND It’s a bit harsh so I cough a lot any suggestions on how I can take the hit and produce a lot of smoke and have it be less demanding on my throat??
Are you using the 0.4 ohm coil that comes with the Smok X Priv? The issue might be that the ejuice you are using is a high propylene glycol (PG ejuice). VG/PG ratios can have a huge impact on your vaping experience.
I couldn't find Mist Fix ejuice, but I believe that the subohm coil you are using is a bit aggressive for that ejuice- provided it is high in PG.
To put it as quickly as possible, Smok x Priv has a subohm coil- ohms is the measure of resistance. So it would work best with a lower nicotine juice that is say 60-70 percent vegetable glycerin. If you are using a juice high in PG (propylene glycol), it will be a bit stiff unless you use a classic cartomizer type device or a coil that has higher resistance. It looks like there is a coil with higher resistance for your device but nothing over an ohm.
There are a couple different methods of vaping- mouth to lung and direct to lung vaping. A high PG juice on a device with a high resistance coil is ideal for mouth to lung- which more closely resembles smoking. The x Priv generates a decent amount of vapor if you have a high VG juice in it, and might be better for direct to lung.
We will have a complete resource page with all of this information available later this week. But I am also happy to answer your questions. If you have any additional information, I would be delighted to assist you further.
Hi , I used to smoke two pods of Juul and want to cut back on nicotine , I have 5ml tank and I am using methonl 0.4 percent strength , I want to know if I am using lower nicotine and how much per tank of I finish it
So you are using a nic salt with 40mg/ml or 0.4 percent strength? That is a lower nicotine level than the standard Juul's 0.5 or 50 mg/ml. But your tank is the size of 7 Juul pods, as each Juul pod holds 0.7ml of ejuice.
An advantage of a tank is that you can select from any number of ejuice flavors. Regular ejuices range from 0 nicotine to a bit under 2 percent strength. Most nic salt flavors have a 0.25 and 0.5 nicotine option available.
11mg is on the chart as 1.1%. So it is in the middle for a Vapor Zeus type device. Keep in mind that nic strength is also impacted by device. 11mg would be a significant amount if you were using a subohm mod that generates a lot of vapor. On the other hand, nic salt devices generate almost far less vapor and 11mg would be quite low.
All the shops around here still use mg/ml - I am trying to quit smoking. I smoked a pack and a half of full flavor for about 30 years. For the last couple of years I've been doing RYO with Filtered Tubes do to cigarette costs around here ($9 a pack). I bought a eGo AIO and the guy said I should only put a max of 6 mg/ml in it. (It has a 0.6 ohm coil) I tried that and it just barely took the edge off. So a day later I bought some 18 mg/ml 50PG/50VG. That at least takes the edge off. I was wondering if it this is done sometimes - using 18 mg/ml with a sub-ohm coil? Or do you have any suggestions? I really like the small size of the eGo AIO however it is slightly harsh.
How are you doing with the 1.8? People sometimes use 1.8 with a sub-ohm coil, but you'll get a lot more nicotine and you may not get the throat and chest hit you need if you're first starting out. I started out with our Vapor Zeus and it really did the trick for me. Let me know how your journey goes. I'm here for you!
Hey, Ike! First off, congrats on taking the first step to "smoking smarter," as we call it here at V4L. I'm imagining this could be happening for a few reasons. What are you vaping out of? Sometimes with box mods you need a lower nicotine level than you might think. Only a doctor would know for sure what's up, but I can check in with my boss, who is the resident expert on vaping (he switched over after 40 years of smoking). He might have experienced this. I'm guessing your nic level is either too low or too high. Did you smoke full flavor cigs or lights? Good luck on your journey.

Great question, Ryann! .6 is actually a lower nicotine level than 2.4. We recently posted a blog that breaks it down and offers some more detailed info. Click <a href="https://www.vapor4life.com/blog/e-cigarette-nicotine-levels/">here</a> to check it out. :)
