The nicotine level in e-juice commands the sensation you get when vaping. Nicotine itself gives you the punchy feeling you experience on the back of your throat, and a more concentration gives a more robust throat hit. Vapers who have ever used high-nicotine e-liquids understand this feeling – strong and sometimes uncomfortable. For ex-smokers, it feels like they are just replicating the sensation they used to get from the cigarette smoke.
The rule is simple, to get a stronger throat hit, then get a vape juice with high nicotine concentration, and vice versa. Generally, vape juices containing nicotine concentrations above 16 mg/ml are considered to give strong throat hits. The majority of vapers who have vaped e-juices with a concentration of 10 mg/ml and below reported gentle feelings on their throats.
Notwithstanding, some devices such as sub-ohm tanks and pod mods – like Wotofo Manik Pod Mod, Wotofo nexMESH Pro Tank, nexMesh Sub-Ohm tank, and Wotofo Flow Pro Subtank among others – are very efficient in uptake of nicotine implying that vaping e-juices with high-nic concentrations is too much to handle.
Consequently, vapers suing sub-ohm tanks prefer low-nicotine concentrated e-juice that notably lowers throat hit. But, it’s possible to apply other entries – listed below – to get a similar sensation with low-nicotine e-juices.
