No matter how powerful your e-cigarette battery is, your vaping experience will not be truly enjoyable without good e-liquid.
Here are some of the best e-liquid brands we have tasted so far.
V2 Cigs is one of the few mini ecig manufacturers that offer refillable cartomizers so you’ll be able to mix different flavors and even nicotine strengths to create your very own e-juice recipe. It’s also a great money-saving option for vapers on a budget.
V2 Cigs e-liquids are a special mix of water, nicotine and flavorings with a propylene glycol-vegetable glycerin base. The 25ml bottle is available in three nicotine levels – 18mg (unfiltered), 12mg (full flavor), 6mg (light) – plus a zero nicotine option. The 50ml bottle offers an additional variety – 24mg (strong) – designed for hardcore smokers.
A total of 10 e-liquid flavors are currently featured in the permanent collection. Red, Sahara, and Congress are made from different blends of tobacco. The menthol selection comes in Peppermint, Menthol, and Mint Tea varieties. Specialty flavors such as Chocolate, Coffee, Vanilla, and Cherry have been created to add a twist to your vaping experience.
A single 50ml bottle of V2 e-liquid can fill a total of 50 cartridges. At $29.95 before coupons, each bottle translates to roughly 60 cents for a pack of cigarettes.
V2 Cigs blank cartridges are refillable up to five times while the new EX Blanks are refillable up to 20 times. EX Blanks feature a clear cylinder that enables the user to monitor e-liquid levels. A virtually cotton-free design ensures flavor consistency even at low e-liquid levels.
Vape Dudes is known for its line of gourmet e-liquids. All products are made to order and handcrafted at an ISO 7 clean room in Dallas, Texas.
Using ingredients that are 100% sourced from the USA, Vape Dudes mixes a 50-50 ratio of PG and VG in all of its e-liquids – the perfect blend to create consistently thick vapors. The company sticks to 100% natural kosher vegetable glycerin, USP-grade propylene glycol, and 99% pure made-in-USA nicotine. All Vape Dudes e-liquids are diacetyl free. Formulas are never watered down or filled with additives.
Vape Dudes does not make e-liquids in batches. There are no pre-made juices to fill smaller bottles. What Vape Dudes does is take all of the ingredients of its e-liquid, measure out the nicotine, flavoring, PG and VG into a 10ml or 30ml bottle, and shake everything together.
Vape Dudes offers e-liquids in 0mg, 6mg, 11mg, 16mg and 24mg strengths. If you require a different cocktail, you may put in your request with your order.
Vape Dudes was named Best E-Liquid Vendor of 2012 by Guide to Vaping magazine.
Halo G6 cartomizers are designed to deliver long lasting, satisfying vapes over extended periods of time. And Halo e-liquids complement these powerful cartomizers perfectly.
Captain Jack is a popular pipe flavor that bursts with a “reckless throat hit” and aroma resembling the pipe tobacco of your old man. Tribeca, Torque 56 and HX3 are also heavy favorites.
Halo e-liquid comes in two bottle sizes – 7ml and 30ml. Prices range from $7.99 for 7ml or $19.99 for 30ml and all juices come in the regular strengths – 0, 8, 12, 18, 24.
With over 100 e-liquid flavors available, you’re likely to find something that will suit your palate at Pink Spot. Some of the top sellers are Gummy Bear, USA Blend tobacco, and Strawberry Cheesecake. With so many flavors to choose from, you probably won’t go through all of them even if you purchase refills every month. But because Pink Spot wants you to try as many flavors possible, it is giving away a free sampler bottle of random e-liquid with every order.
I found the throat kick of Pink Spot e-liquids to be lackluster. If you are used to getting your fix from 18mg strength, I would recommend going up one level when ordering from Pink Spot.
Pink Spot e-liquids range from $5.99 to $69.99 depending on sizes. E-juices are available in 6ml, 12ml, 30ml and 120ml bottles.
The food flavorings used by Virgin Vapor are considered organic because they do not contain any artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial flavorings. Organically flavored e-liquids are designed for consumers who are concerned about everything they ingest, from food to vapor.
Virgin Vapor uses organic vegetable glycerin, distilled water and certified organic flavors for its formulas. Some organic flavors come in an organic ethyl alcohol base. You may ask Virgin Vapor to use propylene glycol as a base or even request your own PG/VG ratios. If you prefer zero alcohol in your e-liquids, Virgin Vapor has created a line of alcohol free e-liquids called the Absolute Virgin Line.
With the ECO Virgin line, Virgin Vapor uses the same organic flavorings but uses nicotine that is extracted in a laboratory in the UK. The Absolute line uses the same nicotine extracted in the USA for the Virgin Vapor line but with a different group of flavorings that does not contain alcohol. Some of the ingredients for the Absolute line have been sourced from the EU and are certified organic by the Union.
No ingredients are made or sourced in or from China. The nicotine solution used in Virgin Vapor’s e-liquids is made from hand-picked tobacco leaves grown in North Carolina.
All Virgin Vapor e-liquids are free of nuts, gluten and sugar. They are Kosher and vegan accepted. Also, because of its concerns over BPA leaching into certain plastic bottles, all Virgin Vapor e-liquids are packaged in glass bottles. A 1-ounce (30ml) bottle retails for $19.99 before coupons.
Five out of eleven Virgin Vapor flavors have received a Spinfuel Choice Award.
The Vapor Bomb online store is packed with options for the vaping enthusiast. They boast a wide selection of classic flavors as well as a few interesting recipes as well. The best thing about Vapor Bomb is that it allows you to make your own custom blend using any of the flavors they have in stock. If you’re lucky, you might even receive an entire DIY Kit from the company and try your hand at becoming the next great mixologist.
Heather’s Heavenly Vapes
Heather’s Heavenly Vapes is popular in the vaping community. Offering a wide selection, many of which appear to be quite unique, Heather’s Heavenly Vapes gives users the option to “Build Your Own Waffle” in which you can add additional flavoring. They also offer the option to customize your blend of PG/VG for those of you who have found your sweet spot.
Another favorite among vapors, Tasty Vapors has a long list of flavors available in strengths as high as 48mg. If you still can’t find your perfect cocktail, try requesting a custom blend of up to three flavors with varying VG/PG mixtures plus the option to sweeten.
The maker of Blu eCigs pre-filled cartomizers, Johnson Creek is a premier manufacturer of e-liquids in the United States.
Its interactive website allows you to practice your mixing skills with vape selections like “vapor volume” and “throat hit.” Their offerings are not as extensive as other brands but their tobacco blends are some of the best. Try the French Vanilla flavor and you’ll never order vanilla vapes elsewhere again.
Nite Lite Vapors
Nite Lite Vapors has an impeccable and long reputation for having the best tobacco e-liquids. While they may not carry as many flavors as some of the newer companies can, Nite Lite Vapors continues to be the go-to brand for traditional tobacco vapes.
Totally Wicked offers two types of e-liquids: pre-mixed and mix your own. Pre-mixed e-liquids can be used straight out of the bottle and are available in four classic flavors: Red Label, Titan Fluid, Patriot Range and Original. Nicotine strengths range from zero to 36mg.
Totally Wicked lets you mix your own e-liquid. The three basic ingredients – nicotine, flavor concentrate and diluents – can be mixed to your own preferred ratios so you can create your own vaping cocktail. Everything you need for your first mixology experiment such as fluids, storage and dispensing bottles can be found in Totally Wicked’s Mix Your Own section.
The throat kick from Totally Wicked e-liquids will always hit the spot and never leave you craving for more. A 30ml bottle of the Original label costs $19.99 before coupons. The Titan range is available in 10ml and 20ml bottles sold at $6.99 and $11.99 respectively.
Totally Wicked e-liquids come in 8mg, 11mg, 18mg, 24mg and 36mg strengths.
