Difference Between Premium vs Low Cost E-Liquids
The vaping universe is spoilt for choice. There are literally hundreds of various brands and e-juice flavours out there. What was once an industry offering mere tobacco or methol flavours has expanded into a dizzying market with hundreds of different choices, including desserts, fruits and even alcohol flavoured concoctions! On top of that, we can now choose between premium e-juice and their cheaper counterparts. So what's the deal? Should we stray from the premium e-liquids or try out the less expensive varieties? Or maybe a combination of both?
What is the difference?
Most vapers believe that pricier e-liquids are of higher quality and contain safer ingredients, but this is not necessarily the case. We know all e-liquids have identical base ingredients – Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, flavourings and varying amounts of nicotine. The secret to making a premium e-liquid is producing a profile that is robust and rich in flavour, and lingers on the palate. This is an involved process that takes more time, far more resources and a lot more effort, and herein lies the reason for the increased cost of premium e-liquid. A cheaper e-liquid doesn't necessarily mean that it's not safe; it may merely indicate the flavour profile is not as substantial. If you aren't sure, check out factors such as online customer feedback or contact the vendors for additional information.
So, are premium e-liquids really superior?
The best e-juice for you will depend on your own personal taste. Costlier doesn't always result in better. Premium e-liquids will provide a superb assortment of flavours, albeit at a higher price, but that doesn't mean a simple blend of Mojito and Menthol isn't going to taste satisfying. The answer to finding out which is best for you is through trial and error. Don't be afraid of cheaper e-liquids or the pricier ones; try them all to find out what best suits your palate and ultimately your budget. Enjoy your taste adventure!
