How much eliquid do I get

How Much E-Liquid Will I Get Through Each Day ?

When you first start to vape, stocking up on devices and e-liquid is crucial to making sure you have the equipment you need to make the switch.

Aside from coils – which will usually need replacing in around a week, depending on your usage habits – the main thing you’ll need to keep a ready supply of is best e-juice.

The vape juice is arguably the most important piece of vaping equipment: it contains the nicotine you’re looking for and is turned into the vapor you inhale. So how much of it will you need each day?

While there is plenty of variation between individual vapers, it’s possible to get a good idea of how much juice you’re likely to get through each day from the user surveys that have been conducted to date.

Nicotine Levels and E-Liquid Consumption

The biggest deciding factor in how much e-liquid you’ll consume is undoubtedly the nicotine level you choose.

Vapers – and all nicotine users – do something called “self-titration,” which effectively means that you vape until you feel like you’ve had enough nicotine. This means that if you’re just switching from smoking and you use 0.6 % nicotine e-liquid, you’ll vape a lot more than if you used 1.8% nicotine e-liquid. Determining what the right nicotine level is for you is a separate topic, but it has a fairly obvious role to play here. In short: if you’re just switching from smoking, 1.8 % or even 2.4 % nicotine is the best approach, because vaping isn’t as effective at delivering nicotine as smoking.

What Do User Surveys Tell Us About Vapers’ Nicotine Consumption?

There are several pieces of research looking at the amount of e-liquid consumed by vapers each day, and although the conclusion drawn from them won’t apply to everyone, they do paint a general picture that can be used as the basis for a reasonable estimate. In the E-Cigarette Forum’s “Big Survey” for 2014, the most common answers for daily nicotine consumption were 2 to 3 and 4 to 5 ml, accounting for about 44 percent of responses altogether. There is something of a problem in getting precise figures from this (there was no 3 to 4 ml option), but it offers a good starting point.

Other studies along the same lines come to roughly the same conclusion, too. One looked at a relatively small number of vapers (111) who’d completely quit smoking by vaping, and found that the average nicotine consumption was 4 ml per day. A bigger study (with about 4,600 participants) also found that the same average result, a consumption of 4 ml per day. The biggest user survey had over 19,300 participants, and found an average consumption of 3 ml of liquid per day.

So the picture from these surveys is relatively consistent: vapers generally get through about 4 ml of liquid per day, with some indications that 3 to 4 ml is a better estimate. However, the important factor of the nicotine level used hasn’t been taken into account yet: all of these studies found that users were vaping 1.2 % nicotine e-liquids on average. The effect this will have is hard to estimate (because vapers who’ve managed down their nicotine consumption are less addicted than a just-switching or recently switched smoker), but it would suggest that those using a higher nicotine level might not need to vape quite as much.

Can I Estimate My E-Liquid Consumption Based on How Much I Smoked?

If you’re just making the switch to vaping from smoking, you might be interested in thinking about how much e-liquid you’ll use based on how much you used to smoke. The effect of nicotine level is crucial here: pack-a-day smokers are strongly advised to start with 1.8 % or 2.4 % nicotine liquids, and if you use lower levels you will vape more. If you smoked less than a pack a day, then 1.2 % might be enough nicotine for you, and if you only occasionally smoked or had very few cigarettes each day, then even less might be suitable.

As mentioned above, it is a little difficult to estimate the impact of nicotine levels on e-liquid consumption, but it seems fair to expect that if you adjust your nicotine level to match your dependence, then your e-liquid consumption per day will remain at about 4 ml. However, if you use higher nicotine e-liquids than you need, it could be closer to 3 ml, and if you don’t have enough nicotine in your liquid, it might shift closer to 5 ml.

I should stress again, though, this is very variable: if you were a really heavy smoker (two packs a day, for example) it could be a lot more and if you just had a couple of cigarettes a day it could easily be just 1 ml per day. Sadly, there is no simple way to estimate the number of milliliters of liquid you’ll need to consume based on the number of cigarettes you smoked, so the best advice is ultimately to stock up on liquid and vape until you feel satisfied. If you know how much e-liquid your tank holds, then you can look at how much you use each day to get a better idea of how much you’ll need in future.

The Effect of Different Devices on E-Liquid Consumption

One final point that’s worth mentioning is that different atomizers and devices impact how much e-liquid you’ll get through in a day. If you’re using a basic clearomizer on an eGo-style or a low-power device, each puff will vaporize less liquid than if you’re using a higher power device with a rebuildable atomizer or a sub-ohm tank. In short: the more power that goes to your coil, the more e-liquid you’ll vaporize.

This again doesn’t lend itself perfectly well to estimating how much e-liquid you’ll consume, though. The simplest explanation would be that higher power, more efficient devices would give you more nicotine per puff, assumedly meaning you’d take fewer puffs and that your e-liquid consumption would be roughly the same. This probably isn’t the case, though: part of the appeal of vaping is the hand-to-mouth, exhaling vapor, “behavioral” replication of smoking, and so you’ll probably still do it fairly often.

Based on personal experience, I consume more e-liquid using higher power, more efficient devices, despite the fact that I upgraded to them after successfully quitting smoking with a less powerful device, and the general lesson seems to be that better devices lead you to use more e-liquid.

Conclusion – Estimates are Possible, But Not Precise Ones

Overall, while 4 ml per day is a fair estimate of how much e-liquid you’ll consume – and you can work out how much e-liquid you’ll need to buy based on that – there are no certainties.

The best approach is to pay attention to how much you vape when you first get started, and then base your future estimates on that: the amount you vape will change over time but this will undoubtedly make your estimate more accurate.

If there was one take-away lesson, though, it’s to vape however much you need to: the goal is quitting smoking, you can worry about getting through less e-liquid after you’ve made the switch.

What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
