The Choice to Be Vaping Salt-Based E-Liquids

Posted by David on

Perhaps you've noticed that more and more people are vaping slim, tiny pod mod devices. These user-friendly, portable vaping systems are extremely convenient and can provide vapers with a sensation that's very similar to smoking a cigarette. A lot of that has to do with the type of e-liquid that's used with these devices. 

Up until the last year or so, e-juices contained freebase nicotine. This type of nicotine is extremely potent. However, it was never intended for sub-ohm vaping systems. When freebase nicotine is heated to a certain temperature, it feels very harsh against the throat, causing irritation. For this reason, vapers had no choice but to settle for juices that contained smaller amounts of this type of nicotine in order to avoid harshness.

Now, thankfully, we have salt-based nicotine. This type of nicotine is highly potent yet non-irritating. And since we’ve e-liquids made with nicotine salts, we can enjoy juices that give that nicotine buzz just like a real cigarette.

If you're considering switching to salt-based, there are some factors that to consider.

Throat Hit

One of the main characteristics of salt-based vape juice is the strong throat hit that it provides. Many users find that this throat hit is extremely like the one that is felt when smoking an analog cigarette. If you're someone who used to smoke cigarettes, the throat hit is probably going to be very pleasant for you. However, some vapers don't enjoy this sensation, preferring a smoother draw.

Nicotine Cravings

If nicotine is what you crave, a vape juice made with nic salts is what you need. Because salt-based nicotine can be vaped at high output levels without feeling harsh, you can take in a good amount of nicotine per puff, satisfying those pesky cravings instantly. Many manufacturers of who produce these types have found a way to make products that have as much nicotine per puff as a cigarette. For this reason, many people have an easy time switching to this type of juice after years of smoking analog cigarettes.

Vapor Production

If you're the type of vaper who loves chasing thick, large clouds, you might want to reconsider picking up a bottle of nic salt e-liquid. Because of the level of nicotine found in these juices, the fog won't be as thick or big.

Pod Mod Systems vs. Other Vaping Devices

Salt-based vape juices are compatible with pod mod systems. These devices are small and very easy to use. Unlike box mods, they usually don't come with all the customizable features. If you want to vape with a unit that is uncomplicated, you'll probably enjoy using a pod mod. However, for fans of the highly advanced box mods that are designed for conventional e-juices, you might be disappointed.

The Decision is Yours

If you're interested in having a vaping session that feels like smoking a cigarette, e-liquids that are made with salt-based nicotine are probably the way to go.
