Best liquidst for electronic cigarette? Here’s how to choose the right e-liquids for your e-cig

If you are wondering how to choose the best e-liquid for your personal vaporizer you have found what you were looking for! In the next few lines we will reveal everything you need to know about vaping liquids to maximize the performance of your e cigarette.

As you may have guessed from the title, there is a correlation between the type of e-cig you use and the most suitable e-liquids for this device. In fact, the best vaping experience can only be achieved when these two elements are paired correctly.

Therefore, the e-liquid should (at least ideally) be chosen thanks to the type of vaporizer that you use, both for MTL (mouth to lung) or DL (direct lung) vape.

Let’s go now to see how to choose the best e cigarette liquid.

MTL or DL vape: here are the differences you need to know to choose e-liquids

You probably already know that the world of vapers is divided into the following two macro categories:

  • Mouth to lung vaping (MTL)
  • Direct lung vaping (DL)

The MTL vaping is characterized by the resistance that your e-cig opposes to the puff of steam, so that it can look like a classic cigarette as much as possible. This is guaranteed by the small size of the air hole under the coil, by the holes of the coil and by the internal diameter of the drip tip.

For the DL vape, this is completely different, due to the largeness of the air holes and of the internal diameter of the mouthpiece, so that they can be crossed by a large amount of vapor.

For this reason, there are some guidelines for choosing the right e cig liquid, according to the vaping system used. Let’s go and see them together.

Ready liquids for electronic cigarettes: the right vaping liquids for the MTL

As we mentioned before, the e-cig for MTL vaping is characterized by a very contrasting shot that recalls the traditional cigarette and is undoubtedly the best way to quit smoking tobacco.

The most suitable electronic cigarette liquids for this category of e-cigarettes are those in which the e-liquid base is made up of a percentage of propylene glycol (PG) equal to or greater than that of vegetable glycerin (VG). Here are the most common examples of base liquid ecig for MTL devices:

  • PG VG 50%/ 50%
  • 60% PG / 40% VG
  • 50% PG / 40% VG / 10% double distilled or purified water

PG guarantees a lower density of vaping liquids (as well as double-distilled or purified water) and consequently brings a number of advantages during your vape experience:

  • Better perception of the flavour
  • Longer life of the coil
  • Pronounced hil

All this makes us understand how the MTL vape systems are the most similar to traditional cigarettes and can help during the transition from the pack of cigarettes to vaping. But let’s now see which are the best electronic cigarette liquids for DL systems.

The right liquids for MTL e-cigarettes

DL vape: which vaping liquids to choose?

About DL vape, we have seen that the prerogative is the prevalence of PG in the e-liquid base of the vaping liquid, in the case of DL vaporizers the exact opposite is true. In fact, the most suitable blends for a satisfying DL vape experience are those in which vegetable glycerin is the largest percentage of the recipe, as you can see below:

  • 70% VG / 30% PG
  • 80% VG / 20% PG

The reason why VG unbalanced e-cigarette liquids are best for DL vape is related to the density of the vegetable glycerin. In fact, this element of the e-liquid base is much more viscous than PG and its role in vaping liquids is to give body to the vapor and make more “smoky” the vape.

As we mentioned in the paragraph on the differences between MTL and DL shot, for the latter it is necessary that the production of steam is very substantial. This immoderate amount of steam has a main need: that of being able to come out completely from your e-cig and, to ensure that this happens, the whole system is designed with large passage holes.

Now you will ask yourself which are the most suitable vaping flavours for the DL and MTL systems? Let’s see it briefly.

What are the most suitable electronic cigarette flavours for MTL and DL shooting?

Now that you know how to choose the 50/50 or 70/30 liquid for your e-cig, it remains to understand which are the most suitable e-cigarette flavours for MTL and DL vaping. Actually creating dogmas on this subject is quite inconvenient, as there are no real reasons that prevent you from vaping a certain type of flavour on both systems and tastes are very personal.

However, we can give you some tips to start according to our personal opinion on the subject. If you are switching to the electronic cigarette to quit smoking, the best way to do it, is to choose e-cigarette liquids with tobacco flavored nicotine and vape it on a MTL system.

In this way you will find more similarities with the traditional smoking system both in terms of taste (there are very good tobacco liquids) and in terms of the sensation of shooting. We also gradually advise you to decrease the doses of liquid nicotine until it is completely eliminated and thus switch to a type of electronic cigarette liquid without nicotine.

Tobacco flavour e liquid, such as fruit tobaccos, are particularly suitable for MTL vape systems. On the other hand, if we are talking about DL vape systems, the most appreciable liquids are creamy liquids (they recall the tastes of bakery and the similars) and fruity liquids, which guarantee a very strong aromatic vape with greater airiness of shooting.
