A Beginners Guide to Buying Vape Juice Online 

Are you new to vaping and not sure how to buy vape juice online or what the right choice is for you? In the last few years, there has been an explosion of choice when it comes to buying vape juice, which can make it difficult for beginners to know where to start. This quick guide will take you through everything you need to know about buying vape juice online.


Depending on where you visit online (or in-person), you may see different terminology used. Vape juice, vape liquid, e-juice and mod juice are all different terms describing e-liquid. E-liquids are what goes into e-cigarettes to inhale as vape. 

If you haven’t yet chosen an e-cigarette device, we suggest reading our complete Guide to Vaping for Beginners first and choosing your vape juice afterwards

Vape juice or e-liquid contains three basic ingredients – Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin, and flavourings. In addition to this, vape juice can contain nicotine in strengths of 3mg, 6mg, 9mg, 12mg and 18mg. 

Get Your Nicotine Strength Right 

Getting the right nicotine strength is crucial, especially for those attempting to switch from traditional smoking to vaping. In general, people find that the more cigarettes they smoke/d, the higher the nicotine level they’ll want in their e-liquid. 

Typically, for a smoker who used to have 20 or more cigarettes a day, they’ll want to opt for the 18mg options and for those who used to smoke less than five a day, 3mg of nicotine is usually the right amount in their vape juice. 

Ratios of Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin 

Propylene Glycol is generally thought to be best for carrying flavour, and Vegetable Glycerin produces bigger clouds and creates a smoother vape experience. Check out our dedicated blog post on this subject for the complete information you need to make an informed choice.

Different Types of E-Liquid 

  • Premixed e-liquid – These can come with or without nicotine and come in 10ml sizes. As the name suggests, they’re completely ready for use, so all you have to do is fill your device and begin vaping 
  • Shortfills –These are nicotine-free; however, they have space for a 3mg nicotine shot. All our shortfills come with a free nicotine shot for those who want it
  • Shake and vape –This is a beginning mixing kit for those who know a bit about the ratios of Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin they’d like. It comes with everything to make 30ml of vape juice, and there are more than 100 flavours available

Choose Your Flavour 

Everyone’s tastebuds are different, so we recommend experimenting with a few different flavours to find one (or a few!) that you love. For those switching from traditional cigarettes to vaping, we recommend choosing a tobacco flavour to start.
