Tips for Extending the Shelf Life of E-Liquids for Electronic Cigarettes

Individuals who own refillable electronic cigarettes should know how to make their e-liquids last for the longest time possible. The moment they get stale, vapers may no longer feel completely satisfied with them, causing wastage of money.

Below are a few helpful tips on how e-liquids may be enjoyed for a long time. By following them, vapers can save themselves from throwing out vaping supplies that no longer taste as great as the day they were purchased.


e-liquid with e-cigarette1. E-liquids should be placed in cool areas.

Nothing else can considerably shorten the lifespan of e-liquids as much as exposing them to high temperatures. After refilling the tanks of their e-cigarettes, users should make sure that they do not place the containers near anything that gives off heat, such as a heater or an oven. It's also a bad idea to leave their supplies inside closed cars, especially on hot summer days.


2. Protect them from light.

Light is another thing that can make e-liquids go stale faster than usual. Containers are best placed in dark areas, away from direct sunlight. If these products are obtained from the manufacturers or sellers in transparent bottles, it's a good idea to have them transferred into amber bottles that can save them from being touched by light unnecessarily.


3. Minimize exposure of e-liquids to air.

Most chemicals, including e-liquids, react unfavourably to oxygen. Exposing these products to air cannot be completely avoided, especially while the tanks of e-cigs are being refilled. It's a good thing that vapers can do certain things to minimize air exposure. Doing the refilling task as quickly as possible is one of them. Another is making sure that the cap is tightly closed after refilling e-ciggies. It will also help extend the shelf life if supplies obtained in large containers are divided into smaller bottles.


4. Dilute or cut using top-notch supplies.

Some users like to weaken e-liquids in order to make them suit their individual tastes. The use of propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) with superb quality is highly recommendable. Otherwise, the impurities present in poor quality ones can have a negative impact on the natural shelf life of e-liquids as well as their flavourings.

The above are some fool proof ways to keep e-liquids for e-cigarettes from becoming stale unnecessarily. By making sure that these products are kept away from heat, light, air and impurities found in second-rate PG or VG, there's no need for vapers to waste precious supplies.

Great post! I’m writing a paper on this for a health class. What are your sources for this information?

Will the efficacy of the nicotine diminish or break down the older the liquid is?

Informative post. I’ve found that anything over a year will become unvapeable to me.

You mention the use of amber bottles and cutting the e-liquids with high quality PG or VG.  Where can I obtain these items?  I am very new to buying these things and there is a bit of a learning curve.  I appreciate any help you can give me.

I find that e-cigs are becoming very popular at night clubs in NYC, all my friends and I enjoy them very much. Not only are they compact and sleek looking but I find them classy unlike traditional cigarettes.

I put mine in a cool dark place. Just like foods. Sunlight can ruin any product.
