Various Components of E-ciggies

Electronic cigarettes used to only manufacture disposable cartridges. Today, most of them have diversified to include manufacturing of refillable and blank cartomizers. The refillable cartomizers offer the user the freedom and ability to exercise some preference after they run out because they can buy different e-liquids that offer them the flavour of their choice. There are some starter kits in that come with around two or four cartomizers (or clearomizers), but they usually just come with conventional flavours. Another advantage with having refillable or blank cartomizers is that users can save a lot of money since refills are cheap.


Knowing Your Favourite Flavour

Currently, there exist quite a big number of different flavours on the market, and each one of them is distinct. Identifying your best e-liquid flavour may not necessarily require you to go through all the electronic cigarette reviews on the market and choosing the one with the highest rating. This is because individuals have different tastes, and you may like a totally different flavour, even if not a lot of other people like it. Identifying a flavour as your favourite may require you to buy different flavours, try them out and pick your favourite. Common flavours in the market include Cappuccino, Apple, Menthol, Chocolate, Cherry, Mint and many others.


Buying the E-Liquid

Before you even start trying to identify a flavour as your favourite, you will need to know about the best places to buy e-liquids. There are many places where you can buy e-cigarettes and e-liquids, however, we suggest you buying all e-cig products at The shipping is usually on the same day!


e-sTips for Storing Your E-Liquids

Your e-juice has a shelf-life of over two years; unfortunately, most users who don't know how to store the e-liquids properly have been disappointed due to having them lose much of their quality. Other vapers know the trick and have admitted to having successfully stored their e-juice over 2 years without it losing its quality.

The components that make up your e-juice are flavourings, propylene glycol (PG) and glycerin. If the e-liquids are not kept in a proper manner, the content may eventually become stale. The flavour is prone to tarnishing and vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol may degrade over time if stored poorly. Below are tips for storing your e-liquids.


Store in a Cool Dark Place

E-liquids are very sensitive to heat and light. They eventually lose their flavour and quality if stored in places where the temperatures are high and the light is too much. Keeping them in cool dimly lit places such as refrigerators or the medicine cabinet is the best thing to do. Not only do low temperatures slow down the oxidation process of the e-liquids, but they also prevent any growth of mould and bacteria, which would otherwise compromise the freshness and quality of your e-liquids.

Exposing your e-liquids to very strong light during refilling may also affect the quality of your e-juice. Consider refilling the cartomizers indoors.


Store Components Separately

Currently, it is possible for you to by e-juice ingredients separately and then mix them yourself. If you do this, do not mix all of the components together if you do not intend to use all of the e-juice you have made at one time.

This would explain the reason that the e-liquids nan has been keeping in her purse don't taste as good to her anymore.  Well have to order some new ones and keep them in the fridge.  Thanks for posting this, it is helpful for those of us who are new to the whole vaping experience.
