What are nicotine salts?
Nicotine salt consists of exactly the same nicotine that is contained in the tobacco leaf in its natural state. If this form of nicotine were added to the liquid that you and I vaporize, we would have to vaporize it at extremely high temperatures for the nicotine solution to be effective, and it would still not be absorbed as easily as nicotine on a free base. Like Freebase, Nic Salt Juice would need to be modified.
What are the benefits of nicotine salt?
The first benefit is satisfaction. Many vapers who try traditional liquids for the first time often find that they don't get the same satisfaction or "hit" from their nicotine. Furthermore, it may not be enough to satisfy their cravings.
The second advantage of nicotine salts is a softer nicotine hit. A big problem for many "potential" vapers is that conventional e-liquids are too harsh and nicotine is to blame. Cigarette companies use anesthetics like menthol or eugenol to cover up and mask the harshness. Vape juices don't, so the softer feel of nicotine salt liquids makes a big difference.
The third advantage is the reduced influence on taste. Those of us who have given up the habit and prefer nicotine-free e-liquids can notice a marked difference in taste despite smoking the same product. This is because freebase nicotine affects the overall taste of the liquid. Nic salt juice has virtually no effect in this area, resulting in a richer, more aromatic and pleasant steam experience.
The last advantage is the best advantage, and that is that it is cheaper. Everything is almost significantly more expensive than a tiny little vape pen, as well as the many premium e-liquids that go into the vape pen. If all you need is a cheap and discreet vapor experience that gives you just the right amount of nicotine, salts are just the thing for you.
Nicotine salts are usually higher in PG as they are suitable for all starter kits and pod style devices, which makes sense as nicotine salts are usually intended for new vapers.
Nic Salts in combination with a small starter kit and/or pod device is an excellent choice as a vape kit and e-liquid combination for the first time, but also excellent as a second setup for all experienced vapers on the go, as it has a small form factor and produces less intrusive fumes, perfect for on the go when you go to your local pub.
Is Nic Salt only available in 10ml bottles?
Yes, due to EU TPD regulations, anything containing nicotine may not be sold in bottles greater than 20mg nicotine strength and not larger than 10ml. All our Nic salts are fully UK/EU TPD compliant and are sold in 10ml bottles for use with refillable devices. We also sell pre-filled pods of Nic salts for devices, pod-systems.
