Here at Simply ELiquid, we believe that buying a refillable vape starter kit is one of the best decisions that you can make as a beginning vaper. Between the experience of using a vaping device with pre-filled pods or cartridges and using one that you can refill yourself, there’s simply no comparison because having the ability to try any e-liquid on the market rather than being restricted to the few e-cigarette liquid refill flavours available for a pre-filled device makes vaping infinitely more enjoyable.
Having a refillable vape kit does, however, come with one additional challenge: You need to learn how to refill your e-cig. Learning how to refill a vape tank with e-liquid isn’t going to add significantly to the challenge of using your vaping device, but there is a certain art to doing it properly if you want to have the best experience possible. If you’ve ever experienced a burnt flavour immediately after filling your vape tank, for instance – or if you’ve ever noticed a gurgling sound when vaping – there’s a good chance that you didn’t fill the tank properly. Let’s make sure those things don’t happen. Here’s how to refill your vape tank the right way.
Prime the Coil When Filling Your Tank for the First Time
Regardless of the type of vape tank that you own, filling the tank for the first time should always begin with priming the coil. A vape coil usually has a wick made from cotton, and you want to make sure that the wick is totally wet before you start vaping. Otherwise, you could end up burning the wick. A coil with a burnt wick will always produce an awful flavour, and if you’ve ever experienced a burnt fla

When you shop for vape juice at Simply ELiquid and other vape shops, propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) are two terms that you’re going to see constantly. They’re in the product descriptions that you read when looking at different e-liquids, and they’re even printed on the labels of most vape juices. There’s no way to escape PG and VG if you vape. What’s even more important is that they’re absolutely essential to the quality of your vaping experience – so you’d better know what they mean. So, what are VG and PG? They’re the two most plentiful ingredients in any bottle of vape juice, and you’re about to learn why it’s so important to keep PG and VG in mind when you buy e-liquid online.
What Are PG and VG?
Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine are two of the world’s most common – and useful – chemicals. Although they’re created in different ways, they have several similar properties and can be used interchangeably in many applications. That’s one reason why they’re both used as e-liquid ingredients.
On that note, PG and VG aren’t just any e-liquid ingredients; they’re actually most of what’s in a bottle of vape juice. While the nicotine and flavours are certainly important, those ingredients are extremely concentrated in their original forms. They have to be diluted with a carrier in order for you to have a usable e-liquid, and PG and VG function as those carriers. At the most, the nicotine and flavours in a bottle of vape juice comprise around 10 percent of the bottle. The rest is PG and VG.
What Is Propylene Glycol (PG)?
Propylene glycol is a synthetic chemical, and it’s possible to derive it from a number of different sources including propylene oxide and even vegetable glycerine. It’s slightly more viscous than water, and it has almost no scent or flavour. Here

We’re going to begin this article with a statement that probably seems obvious: Your e-liquid should always taste good. If you don’t enjoy the flavour of your vape juice, that’s a problem – and one of the first things that you might do for help is to start looking for advice from fellow members of the vaping community. You’re going to scan the forums and blogs for tips about how to improve your vaping experience. When you do that, you’re likely to see one particular bit of advice over and over: You should learn how to steep e-juice.
That’s going to send you down a rabbit hole – and if that rabbit hole has taken you here, you’re in luck. You’re about to learn about the process of steeping e-juice in greater detail than ever before. More importantly, we’re going to keep things simple and succinct – and that’s going to help you get started right away. First, though, let’s learn more about what steeping vape juice actually is. Are you about to unlock a completely new world of flavour? Let’s dig in.
What Is Steeping Vape Juice?
Let’s begin by discussing what steeping e-juice actually is. What is steeping vape juice? It’s the process of allowing an e-liquid to age in a controlled fashion, thus encouraging flavour melding and development to take place at the molecular level.
You’re probably familiar with the term “steeping” already, and you’ve probably seen the term used most often in reference to things like tea. Steeping is the process of using a liquid as a solvent to extract the properties of a solid – like putting tea leaves in hot water, for instance. The process of steeping e-liquid isn’t quite the same thing because there are no solids involved. You aren’t actually creating an extract because the makers

When you’re new to vaping, buying e-liquid for the first time is very likely to be one of the most confusing aspects of your transition away from smoking. The reason why buying e-liquid can be so intimidating for first timers is because of the wide range in the amount of nicotine a vape juice can contain. Many popular e-juices have nicotine strengths as low as 3 mg/ml, while other e-liquids have strengths up to 20 mg/ml. Nicotine-free vape juice is also available. That’s a tremendous variance in the level of nicotine an e-liquid can contain – and as you can probably imagine, your vaping experience won’t be great if the nicotine strength that you’re using isn’t right for your needs.
Here at Simply ELiquid, it’s our goal to make your switch from smoking to vaping as easy as it can be. With that in mind, this is our e-liquid strength guide. What strength e-liquid do you need? We’re going to explain exactly how it works. First, though, we’re going to start you off with a short answer that’s likely to be a perfect fit for most new vapers.
Short Answer: Which E-Liquid Strength Is Best for Quitting Smoking?
“What strength e-liquid should I use?”
We’ll begin this article with a quick answer to the question that most likely brought you here.
The most likely reason why you’ve decided to start vaping is because you’re currently a smoker, and you want to quit. When you shop our selection of vape starter kits, you’ll see a wide variety of different products. We suggest choosing a small and simple vape device such as a vape pen or pod-based system. You should then go the nic salts section of our website and choose a few flavours that appeal to you. For each flavour, you shou

During your time as a vaper, there are three maintenance tasks that you’ll need to perform regularly to keep your device functioning properly and to have the best possible vape experience. You’ll need to keep your device charged, you’ll need to keep your tank full and you’ll need to replace your coil periodically. With the first two tasks on that list, the proper timing will be obvious. You’ll always know when your battery is dead, and you’ll always know when your tank is empty.
Knowing when to change a vape coil, however, requires a little more finesse. At the simplest level, the answer seems obvious; it’s time to change your coil when you’re no longer happy with the flavour quality. As with everything else in vaping, though, an even better experience awaits you if you’re willing to look a bit more deeply. Here’s how to get the most from the vape coils that you buy from Simply ELiquid.
How Do You Tell if a Vape Coil Is Bad?
In short, you can tell that your vape coil is bad because your vape juice doesn’t taste good anymore. Some of the signs that your coil requires replacement include:
- A burnt taste that comes on either suddenly or gradually as you vape
- An unpleasant taste in your mouth resembling the flavour of overcooked sugar
- Frequent gurgling sounds when vaping; the gurgling quickly returns after you remove the excess e-liquid with a paper towel
- A visible layer of black or brown residue on the coil’s heating wire
If you’re no longer happy with your vaping experience from a flavour standpoint and see any of the signs that show your coil may be bad, there’s no need to worry that something is wrong with your vape device. It’s just time to change your coil.

Is vaping a safe alternative to smoking? If you’re a smoker, you’re well aware of the massive health risk you’re taking. You know that smoking ultimately leads to lung cancer and heart disease. You know that smoking is a scourge to public health and that it is the world’s leading preventable cause of death. Tobacco products don’t just cause health issues; being a smoker can also put a serious damper on your social life. You’ve heard about vaping, and you want to know if it’s really less harmful than smoking.
In this article, we’ll attempt to provide a balanced perspective on cigarettes and vaping and explain what the current research says about whether e-cigs are safe. We’ll also dig a bit deeper and describe the known benefits and risks of vaping. Finally, we’ll speak about some special circumstances such as vaping without nicotine and vaping if you aren’t already a smoker. Let’s begin!
Can Vaping Help You Quit Smoking?
We’ll start with the most basic question. Does vaping work as a smoking cessation method that can help you quit conventional cigarettes? The answer to that question is “yes.” People quit smoking every day by switching to vaping. The NHS recommends vaping as a legitimate smoking cessation method and says that it can “help you quit smoking for good.” It’s even possible that prescription e-cigarettes will be available through the NHS in the near future.
It’s likely that you have friends or family members who have already quit smoking cigarettes by switching to vaping. At this point, though, the evidence to support the effectiveness of vaping for smoking cessation isn’t just anec

You’ve made the decision that you’re ready to give up smoking and switch to vaping. That’s the first step in a process that’s going to prove truly transformative for the quality of your life – but it’s only the first step. Before you can actually start vaping, you need to choose the best vape kit for your needs. That’s where this article is going to help; we’re going to walk you through the first step in switching to vaping.
Vaping is fundamentally different from smoking, and it isn’t just different because vapour isn’t smoke. It’s also different because the products themselves have almost nothing in common aside from the fact that they both contain nicotine. All cigarette brands are fundamentally the same, but you can’t say the same thing about electronic cigarettes. Some vape products are geared toward beginners, and others are designed to give advanced vapers a great vaping experience and may not be quite what you’re looking for. All of the various vape kit brands bring something slightly different to the table.
So, what should you look for when you shop for vape kits in the UK? We’ll help you get started with this walkthrough.
What Is a Vape Starter Kit?
Before you can choose the best vape kit for your needs, you must understand how full vape starter kits differ from plain vaping devices. The definition of a full vape kit is that it includes everything you need to get started with vaping in one box. A bare vaping device usually only comes with the device and the charging cable. A full starter kit, on the other hand, includes a vape tank and replacement coils or pods. All that you need to do is add e-liquid. If you’re a first-time vaper, your first vape kit should definitely be a fu

Whether you’re browsing the selection of vape juice here at Simply ELiquid or reading about vaping online, there’s no getting around the fact that nicotine salt e-liquid is an incredibly big deal these days. It’s such a big deal, in fact, that you might start to wonder if you’re doing something wrong – or if you aren’t having the best possible vaping experience – if you aren’t using nic salt e-liquid.
In this article, we’re going to set the record straight on nicotine salts. You’re going to learn what nicotine salt vape juice is and how it differs from regular e-liquid – and by the time you’re done reading, you’ll have a better understanding of whether nicotine salts are right for you.
Let’s begin with the simplest question of all. Exactly what is nicotine salt e-liquid?
What Is Nicotine Salt E-Liquid?
To understand what nicotine salt e-liquid is, the first thing you need to understand is that there are two different forms of nicotine. The nicotine molecule is naturally a salt before it’s extracted from the tobacco leaf. However, the process of extracting nicotine from tobacco – which involves the use of ammonia as a solvent – converts the molecule from a salt-based structure to a free base. Freebase nicotine is used for the vast majority of the nicotine products in the world, including vape juices and nicotine replacement products like gum and patches.
Nicotine salt vape juice starts out as freebase nicotine e-liquid, but it contains a mild acid – usually benzoic acid – that triggers a chemical reaction and changes the nicotine molecule from a free base back to a salt.
As you’re about to learn, though, the fact that nic salt e-liquid uses the salt form of nicotine isn’t really the most important aspect from a user experience standpoint. The truly important aspect of nicotine salt is that is has a lower p

During your time as a vaper, e-liquid is the one product that you’re going to buy more than anything else.

If you fall into the second group, you’re going to want to keep tabs on the most popular e-liquid flavours in the UK because that’s how you’re going to discover the latest and greatest e-liquid brands.

How to Identify the Best E-Liquid Flavours for Your Needs
The first thing you need to know about buying the best vape liquid flavour is that the flavour itself only represents one small part of the equation.
