What Nicotine Strength is Right For Me?

If you’re looking to make the switch from smoking to vaping ensuring you choose the right level of nicotine in your vape is a large part of making a smooth transition. To make selecting the best Nicotine strength for you we have provided an easy-to-use chart that explains everything you need to know.

For MTL vapers, there are a wide range of strengths to pick from, so think about how many cigarettes you’re used to smoking, and start off on a strength similar to your experience. 

  • 1-5 cigarettes a day: 0.5% (5mg/ml) 
  • 5-15 cigarettes a day:  1.0% (10mg/ml) 
  • 15-20 cigarettes a day: 1.5% (15mg/ml) 
  • 20+ cigarettes a day: 2.0% (20 mg/ml) 

If you want to vape DTL or sub-ohm, where you inhale directly from the device without holding the vapour in your mouth first like a cigarette, you’ll need a much lower nicotine strength liquid, typically between 0.3% to 0.6%, or 3mg/ml to 6mg/ml 

  • 0 mg ml or 0% (Nicotine Free) 
  • 3 mg ml or 0.3% (Low Strength) 
  • 6 mg ml or 0.6% (Medium) 

What do the numbers on the bottle mean ? 

The numbers on a vape bottle relate to how many milligrams of nicotine there is per milliliter of e-liquid. To make understanding this easy then - the lower the number, the less nicotine there is. Sometimes it’s written in a percentage format too - for example a 3mg/ml is 0.3% nicotine. Higher nicotine levels will give you a stronger throat hit.
