Being a vaper we are always concerned about the use and care of e-juice. The way we use and store e-juice is really important in order to get the full taste and long-lasting e-juice life. This guide will give you the hands-on tips for enjoying the true flavor and maximizing the life of e-juice.
How to use e-juice
- Shake up
As we shake all types of juices before drinking, it’s a good idea to shake e-juice as well before vaping. It will give a good flavor because by doing this flavor can be equally distributed in the e-juice. You just have to be a little careful while replacing the lid before shaking.
- PG & VG
Common ingredients of e-juice are water, flavoring, nicotine, PG & VG. If you really intend to enjoy your vaping you should do some experiments with the amount of PG and VG so that so could reach the exact level of vaping as you want.
Cleaning is the key to enjoy the real flavor in vaping. Sometimes e-juices leave their residue or make your device sticky. Ghost flavoring is also an issue that is when you feel the taste of your previously vaped e-juice. So if you want to avoid all these issues, you have to clean your vape device and tank properly and at the regular intervals of time.
Steeping is actually an aging process of e-juice to get the best taste out of it. This process can last from 4 to 14 days during which you heat up the e-juice to a certain level, shake it to mix the flavor and ingredients like PG and VG, and leave it in the air for oxidization.
- Try different flavors
Don’t just stick to one flavor. A vast variety of e-juice flavors are available in the market. Selecting the right range of your favorite e-juices requires experimentation. Try different flavors and you’ll find the right taste for your taste buds.
- Filling tank
While filling the tank you should keep in mind that overfilling or flooding the atomizer can lead to loss of vapor and taste. So never overfill the tank. Leave some space empty in the tank so you could have an enjoyable vaping experience.
How to take care of your e-juice
- Avoid heat exposure
If you want your e-juice to last for a longer time then keep it safe from direct exposure to sunlight and heat. Keeping e-juice under the sun or at a place where the temperature is about 40 degrees Celsius may affect the ingredients of e-juice. Though e-juice doesn’t vaporize that quickly ultraviolet rays and heat can have chemical reactions with the components of e-juice and it can affect the taste as well. Moreover, exposure to sunlight and air can oxidize the nicotine which causes a change in color and a decrease in the amount of nicotine.
- Leaving in mailbox or car
If you leave your vape device or e-juice bottle inside the mailbox, car, or any other metal box under the sun, it will surely act like an oven. Keeping e-juice in such kind of enclosed things or space will turn it into useless liquid.
- Storing in refrigerator
Keeping your e-juice in the refrigerator is good for keeping your e-juice safe for a longer period of time. Like other food items, refrigeration protects e-liquid from bacteria. Don’t keep e-juice in the freezer instead keep it in the refrigerator and before you vape leave the e-juice outside the refrigerator for some time so that its temperature can be equalized to room temperature.
- Storing material
You can store e-juice in both plastic and glass bottles or containers but if you have to keep it for a longer time then storing in glass material is suggested. Plastic can chemically react with e-juice when heated which will affect the taste and nicotine level of e-juice.
- Keep it in a safe place
It is necessary to keep e-juice in a safe place where it is out of reach to children or pets. E-juice can be poisonous and inflammable so it is important not to place it in an open space.
- Keep e-juice in dark
As we’ve discussed earlier to avoid keeping e-juice in sunlight, it is suggested that you store e-juice in a darker and cooler place. So that you could maximize the life of your e-juice.
In my opinion, it is really important for a vaper to enjoy vaping and it can only be possible when you get a full taste, vapor, throat hit (if you want) along with a clean and non-messy vaping device. I hope these tips will help you to make your vaping enjoyable.
