E-Liquid, sometimes known as E-Juice or E-Cig Liquid, is the liquid solution that contains nicotine and is heated inside an electronic cigarette to produce vapour.
There are literally hundreds of diverse, exciting and tasty flavours available from a lot of different brands across the world. The biggest selling brand at the moment, especially across the UK and most of Europe, is Hangsen. They’re a household name because of the quality and taste of their juices.
There are many stores who stock well over 70 flavours from Hangsen at very affordable prices for most vapers. But do be careful when shopping as overly cheap liquids can be a health hazard.
But if you’re new to vaping, which flavours should you be trying?
Here are 4 e-liquid flavours that are tasty, tongue-rocking e-liquid juices that could potentially blow your socks off if you’ve never tried them before. These are some of the finest juices available today.
Virginia Tobacco E-Liquid
Golden Virginia is one of the leading names from the roll-your-own tobacco cigarette industry and is still one of the biggest selling tobaccos in the world today. This familiar popularity is reflected in its e-liquid form as most vape stores claim it as their best selling e-liquid juice by far.
But does it really taste like the real Virginia Tobacco that you know and love? You bet it does, at least according to all of the vapers that I’ve spoken to. It’s a rich, rich tobacco blend.
RY4 e-liquid is a perfect blend for tobacco lovers with a sweet tooth.
It’s a fine mix of tobacco and caramel with just a hint of vanilla to seal the deal. It’s a perfectly sweet, creamy and delightful vape which hits the throat with an unforgettable ting. This is the only e-liquid that could potentially rival Virginia Tobacco in terms of popularity. Vapers love it.
This is a vaping classic. Everyone and their nan loves a great Menthol juice.
Hangsen’s Menthol e-liquid is a celebrity among its peers because of its exceptional taste, cool throat hit and just the relaxing vaping experience that it provides every time. Most vapers will agree that an e-liquid of this calibre deserves to be on a list like this every single time. It’s perfect.
For those who need a bit more from their Menthol juice, there is also something called ‘HS Menthol Sensation’ from Hangsen which is a premium Menthol e-liquid.
Fruit Mix E-Liquid
Fruit fans will literally fall to their knees when they taste the smooth, delicious explosion of fruits that bombard the taste buds and back of the throat when vaping with a fruit mix e-juice.
The number of individual fruits that can be tasted in this e-liquid differ from person to person although there’s always some Kiwi, Grape and Raspberry that is mentioned by vapers. Experience the nostalgia attached to a perfect fruit smoothie with Hangsen’s fruit mix e-liquid.
There are some pretty funky ecig mods out there today, which are modified personal vaporizers, and I’m sure there’s bound to be more as the PV or ecig craze gets even crazier.
Have you ever seen an e-cigarette that resembles a light saber from Star Wars? Or one that looks like a classic Nintendo Entertainment system controller?
E-Cigarette users worldwide have been going nuts about modifying their own e-cigarettes to suit their passions and interests. There have been some unusual and eye-catching e-cigarettes that talented users have crafted themselves, and we have gathered some of our favourites. Take a look at a few in the images below.
One e-cigarette modification that really stood out was the Super Nintendo controller displayed in the images below. For the avid gamers out there, seeing an e-cigarette turned into one of the all-time favourite game console controllers would definitely be luring.
This mod will definitely appeal to e-cig users that are passionate about gaming consoles, especially retro ones. It also has a small LED screen included, which indicates how much your battery is charged and the watt usage; a very useful tool!
In terms of cost, how much you will pay for a modification depends on a number of factors. Just like kitting out a car or bike, the parts can be cheap to buy, however you need an understanding of how to do it yourself. Alternatively, modified e-cigarettes are available to buy online.
Although this may be more expensive, it takes away the hassle of doing it yourself.
Since e-cigarette modification really blew up, there have been award shows for the best designed devices. A YouTube channel called “Indoor smoke”, created an award show named “Indo awards, best e-cig awards of 2015”. It has over 100,000 views, showcasing the best in the industry.
Another award show was hosted on The E-cig Stop website called “Top 10 PV Mods Awards”, where the user awarded the 10 most unique e-cigarette mods.
There are a few specialist online e-cigarette accessory retailers that sell mods at reasonable prices. So if you have a design in mind and want to modify your e-cigarette, check out which designs suit you best.

My husband just brought me home my new LOGIC Pro Advanced Vapor System so I thought I’d do a quick LOGIC Pro demo video.
Anybody that’s been following me knows that I am a big advocate of the LOGIC brand.
I’ve been using their Power Series for a little over two years now and I just love them.
The shop owner raves about the people at LOGIC; he just loves their distributors and the customer service. He says they are top of the line and LOGICs have been his best sellers in his store. He always keeps them in high stock because they’re his best seller.
LOGIC Pro Advanced Vapor System Starter Kit
The starter kit comes with the vaporizer, five refill cartridges – two menthol and three regular tobacco in a range of nicotine levels from 1.8% to 2.4% – the USB wall charger and the USB adapter that attaches to the vaporizer’s battery to recharge it, and a user’s manual.
The refill cartridges for the Advanced Vapor System hold just about the same amount of e-liquid as the refill cartridges of their original Power Series. But the price is the same!
So you’re getting a super high quality battery and refill cartridges for just $5 more than their original Power Series!
Refilling a LOGIC Pro Advanced is just about as easy as refilling an eGo clearomizer, the batteries last a bit longer and it’s a sleeker, more attractive design than the eGo.
The Down Side
You can not refill the replacement cartridges of the LOGIC Pro Advanced Vapor System. Once they’re empty, they’re done. Please don’t even attempt to try to refill them, even with syringe. You’ll only ruin them and they’ll leak.
After using these for about a month, I eventually went back to the eGo-U and eGo-T batteries and clearomizers for cost-effectiveness.
I will say though, that LOGIC comes through again with an absolutely superior vaporizer compared to most others I’ve tried.
How to Purchase the LOGIC Pro Advanced Vapor System
You can buy your system and refill cartridges at LOGIC’s online vape store at logicvapes.us or check at one of these local stores:
• Rite Aid
• Cumberland Farms
You can also check with local vape shops that sell a variety of personal vaporizer products and see if they’ve started to stock them.
You can also call LOGIC’s customer service at (844) 552-9623, Monday – Friday 9 AM to 5 PM EST and they’ll assist you in finding a local vendor in your area.
Technological advances have changed the lives of people in many ways. Nowadays, one can get everything right at their fingertips and without leaving the comfort of home.
Not just that, technological advances have helped people to avoiding several things that would have been harmful for their health. For example, today you can avoid the flames of gas stoves by opting for electronic heaters or cookers.
Not just that, you can also avoid flames and smoke from cigarettes if you want, and that too, without giving up your habit of smoking.
Yes, today you can find several stores offering electronic cigarettes for smokers who want to avoid the severe side-effects of tobacco smoking.
What is an Electronic Cigarette?
An electronic cigarette, as the name indicates, refers to a particular type of product that has a similar shape as any conventional tobacco cigarette. These are available in different flavours, unlike their traditional counterparts, which are available only in menthol and tobacco flavours.
Though these do not compromise your pleasure of smoking, they save you from the side effects and do not create any smoke, even if you lit it up for hours. These e-cigarettes use batteries to operate and can last for months.
Though these products apparently appear to be expensive, they actually offer you the best value for your money as these last for months.
How to Get Electronic Cigarettes?
E-cigarettes are now available in different stores and you can visit any mall in your area to find a store selling them. However, if you cannot find them in any store near you, then opt for the online stores.
There are several online stores that offer these types of products and you can make the purchase from any of them. When placing the order online, be careful to check the special offers and discounts offered by different sites.
Also, make sure to mention the quantity that you require. When you place the order, you should also give specify the flavour that you want to taste.
How to Find the Best Electronic Cigarette?
Even though there are several stores offering e-cigarettes, today, not all of them may offer you the best value for your money. If you want to get hold of the best electronic cigarette, you need to check for reviews of the products.
You can also try out the products that are manufactured by NEwhere. These have received praises among the buyers, and within a very short span of time have emerged as a leading brand selling e-cigarettes. You can find their presence online as well as at different stores.
Whether you opt for NEwhere or for any other brands, you can avoid the certain adverse effects of traditional tobacco smoking. There is no need to worry about nicotine or its harmful effects. You can “vape” it anywhere, even when you are traveling on the road, as it emits no smoke.
You can also remain fresh all throughout the day, as you will not get the stinky smell of tobacco in your clothes. Use of e-cigarettes is based on vapour inhalation and therefore causes no passive smoking.
If you’re a current smoker looking to switch to electronic cigarettes, or you’re looking for refills for your ecigs, you want the best ejuice for the best vaping experience.
The cartridges in an electronic cigarette are filled with a liquid that vaporizes when it’s heated by the atomizer inside of the cartridge. This is what produces the vapor that looks like smoke when you exhale.
But when you inhale, you don’t want a burnt or nasty taste or even an aftertaste of the liquid; you want a smooth taste that also gives you a good throat hit when you inhale.
There are a lot more flavored ejuices on the market today than the basic tobacco flavors that were available when electronic cigarettes first came on the market. You can get sweet flavors or even your favorite fruit flavors if you want.
You can even buy what’s called a “base” or starter eliquid and add your own flavoring to it if you want, but I don’t advise it.
You might have to try a lot of different blending amounts to get the right mix of PG, VG, nicotine and flavor before finding the perfect blend. To me, that’s wasting not only your money, but it’s wasting cartridges. Once that liquid’s in there, there’s no getting it out without vaping with it.
And if you don’t like the blend, you’re going to have to just throw the cartridge away and buy new ones, or tolerate it until the eliquid is used up so you can refill it with something else.
I know, because it’s happened to me on more than one occasion. And it can be pretty frustrating, to say the least.
You want an eliquid that’s smooth on your throat, tastes good and provides a good vapor when you exhale, plus one that doesn’t give you a nasty aftertaste.
The Best eJuice Refills
Finding the best eliquid refills is sometimes a matter of trial and error. I don’t use any sweet or fruity flavors with my ecigs. When I used to smoke traditional cigarettes, I smoked Marlboro Lights or a private label light brand.
When I started using electronic cigarettes, I started with a plain tobacco flavor but noticed a better throat hit and taste with menthol brands. That’s what I stick to.
It took some trial and error for me to find the best ejuice refill for my cartridges and I settled on a local smoke shop that carries some great refill ejuice in the menthol flavor I like.
And even though I’m using only the 1.2% nicotine, I still get a good flavor and throat hit.
You can hit YouTube and find a lot of vapers doing videos on how to make your own refill eliquid. I tried that but it didn’t work out very well. I could never get the right blend of PG, VG, water and peppermint flavoring.
I also ended up throwing out a lot of cartridges because I couldn’t stand the taste. So unless you really know what you’re doing, I would advise buying premixed ejuices from someone you know and has a good reputation.
The bottom line is, the best ejuice has the right blend for your tastes, provides the amount of vapor you want and the best throat hit for you.
It’s an individual preference really, and may take some time before you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Not every regular cigarette tastes the same; you shouldn’t expect every ejuice to taste the same either.
For me, Buck Naked Old Harbor Menthol is my preference for the best ejuice – for me.
I have a local smoke shop that stocks this brand so that’s my first choice.
You can buy it online too at BuckNakedEcigs.com. They also have a wide variety of flavoured Ejuices too.
The decision to quit smoking is a great one, but many set impossible standards for themselves. If you think to yourself that you are never going to smoke from a certain day, chances are you will fail.
Smoking is a habit which is tremendously hard to get rid of at once, and therefore, gradually distancing yourself is the best option. Nicotine Replacement Therapy, popularly known as NRT, helps you do just that.
Nicotine basically creates a dependency, and that is the reason why it is so hard to quit smoking. When a person tries to do away with smoking, withdrawal symptoms due to the absence of nicotine make life really hard.
This is why NRT makes use of inhalers, sprays, gums and many other things which contain a certain amount of nicotine.
The person trying to quit smoking can do so with the help of these things, gradually lowering the amount of nicotine taken.
Even electronic cigarettes can be used as a form of nicotine replacement therapy. You’re replacing the more hazardous form of smoking with a substitute that has far less dangers while still providing the nicotine.
Then gradually, you reduce the amount of nicotine in the ecig cartridges until you no longer need the nicotine at all.
Some people may think that NRT is similar to cigarette smoking since nicotine still gets inside the body.
However, since cigarettes contain a number of disease-creating chemicals which are not found in NRT, the latter is a far healthier alternative.
NRT takes the mind off from withdrawal symptoms, and lets a person focus on getting rid of the addiction of smoking instead. The reason that happens is because NRT reduces withdrawal symptoms to a great extent.
One thing that is to be understood is that NRT does not totally eliminate withdrawal symptoms, however, such occurrences get lowered by almost 90% in many cases as the person trying to quit still gets little amount of nicotine each day.
The number one cause for failure of quitting smoking is withdrawal symptoms, and there are surveys to back up the statement. Hence, NRT drastically reduces the possibility of failure.
Another very important thing is that NRT only works on a physical level. It does nothing to actually relieve the smoker mentally. Therefore, a person trying to quit must look for options to terminate any kind of mental smoking addiction.
Moreover, consulting your doctor is a very crucial step when opting for any new therapy. Having said that, Nicotine Replacement Therapy has a very good reputation in the medical industry, and the benefits are many compared to its few risks.
In case you go for NRT, remember that you must put yourself in the position where you stop smoking. In case you smoke as well as continue NRT, both simultaneously, your body will end up taking even more nicotine, and the negative health effects will be dangerous.
At times, whether your NRT involves gums or inhalers, or something else entirely, your body may not really adjust to the therapy, and you may encounter side effects.
In case such a situation occurs, immediately go to your doctor and attempt to opt for another type of NRT, in order to find the NRT option that suits you best in the long run.
Yes, smokers can quit by using electronic cigarettes, but the manufacturers of e-cigarettes aren’t legally allowed to make those claims because the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) hasn’t done any tests to validate the claim.
But all you have to do is hit some forums or blogs about electronic cigarettes and read some testimonials yourself.
Electronic cigarettes can be marketed as a safer or even healthier alternative to smoking real cigarettes, though, especially when smokers want to light up in public places. Since nothing is lit, there is no secondhand smoke floating around other people.
E-cigarettes can also offer an alternate way of getting your nicotine fix while still enjoying the sensation of smoking without all of the other harmful side effects of what are now being called “analog” cigarettes. With ecigarettes, you’re not burning anything, so you don’t have the tar and carbon monoxide like you do with real cigarettes.
People who are using a patch, gum or even a prescription medication like Chantix, can also use ecigs with a zero nicotine level to help get through the quitting process.
And many former smokers, like me, who have already quit are using e-cigarettes as a way to stay quit.
What about the nicotine levels in electronic cigarettes?
Most of the popular brands or manufacturers of e-cigarettes offer three to four levels of nicotine. Some call them “high” to “low” and some offer zero nicotine as the lowest level. The replacement cartridges have the same levels.
Others state the amount of nicotine by volume, or the percentage of nicotine in the cartridge. The most often seen are 1.8%, 1.4% and up to 2.4%. Anything lower than 1.8% is usually considered zero-nicotine because the amount is pretty negligible.
If you guy an ecig brand with a cartridge that can be refilled instead of buying replacement cartridges, you can pick up your favorite e-juice with zero nicotine up to 2.4% nicotine and experiment with different flavors.
How Many Former Smokers Used E-Cigs to Quit?
There is no data on this yet, because no one’s done any formal studies to test the “theory” that e-cigs can help you quit smoking. But again, just go online and look up some forums or Facebook groups about “vaping” or electronic cigarettes and read for yourself.
You can also find a lot of testimonials on YouTube of former smokers who use electronic cigarettes, or personal vaporizers as they’re also called, to kick the habit without the sometimes harmful or adverse side effects of the patch, gum or Chantix.
What if you don’t WANT to quit? Are e-cigs really a safer alternative?
Most people, including me, will say an absolute yes. What you’re inhaling is a vapor, not smoke, so right there you’re gaining a benefit. There is no tar or carbon monoxide in the e-juice or the vapor either, and you can lower your nicotine level considerably too.
But again, because the FDA hasn’t done any formal governmental testing on any of the devices yet, you’re still going to hear some federal agencies and doctors claim that they’re not safe. But there are some doctors who have their own patients as testimonials and witnesses that they are a safer alternative.
Some physicians have done before and after X-rays on their patients’ lungs and lung capacity and do see an improvement when their patients switch from smoking regular cigarettes to using vaping an e-cig.
The bottom line Of Quitting Smoking With E Cigarettes!
If you’re thinking about quitting or you’re looking for a safer alternative, or, like me, you’ve already quit and don’t want to go back to smoking, do your own research first. Visit some forums, Facebook groups, YouTube, etc.
Then try a few out to find what’s comfortable for you.
Even as a former long-time smoker – 35 years in fact – I never liked seeing a bride smoking while she’s still wearing her beautiful wedding dress.
There’s just something off about it. I mean, she gets all pretty, clean, fresh, in a gorgeous white dress – and then lights up a nasty cigarette.
Think about it. Your beautiful gown, fresh from the cleaners after being altered, nicely pressed, and you’re going to stand out there next to a gross ash can and stink it all up, and try not to get any dirty ashes on it or worse yet, drop a hot ash on that lovely, expensive silk and burn a hole in it!
You could get burn holes in your lovely veil too! Not good.
So the bride manages to make it through an hour or so without smoking to get through the ceremony in a fresh wedding dress. After the ceremony, there’s photographs and then the reception
Fortunately, a lot of places are now smoke free, so now you can see the bride smoking outdoors, where the wind could catch a hot flying ash and burn a hole in her dress or the veil, fly in her eyes – there goes the makeup!
And not just a bride smoking a cigarette, what about the groom, and the rest of the bridal party?
How many of them are smokers who run the risk of damaging their tuxedos? Or how many of them are non-smokers who don’t want to be near any of the other attendants who might be running out to catch a fast one before the ceremony.
There is a way to eliminate the smoke, the smell, the possibility of ruining the dress, and still “smoke” – switch to electronic cigarettes, if only just for that one day!
Here’s how to make a smooth transition, one that you might end up keeping forever:
- Get used to them first – try out disposables until you find one that works for you.
- Have an ecigs party with your bridesmaids! And if you can afford to do it, buy their first disposables for them.
- Explain the reasons why you want a completely smoke-free wedding day and that you would appreciate it if any of your bridal party – bridesmaids AND groomsmen – will switch to ecigs, if only for just that one day.They may surprise you and enjoy it more than smoking real cigarettes!
What are the selling points?
- No smelly tuxedos or bridesmaids dresses;
- No missing out on anything to run outside to catch a quick smoke;
- No risks of burning a hole in any of the clothing;
- No running out of matches;
- No running out of cigarettes;
- No losing your lighter, etc…
Now wouldn’t she look so much cleaner and beautiful if she was a bride vaping a sleak, electronic smokeless cigarette instead?
As I’ve mentioned in a few of my videos, I DO NOT recommend or really advocate refilling the cartridges of your LOGIC ecigs. You can buy prefilled cartridges with Zero nicotine!
Besides, the little green tips on the LOGIC ecigs come apart when you pry them out. That’s because you’re not supposed to be refilling them! Need a fix for that? Watch my other video: Replacement Tips for LOGIC Cartridges.
But if you choose to do so, or if you’re looking for cheap no nicotine eliquid refills for your other electronic cigarette brands, this will do the trick.
Replacement Tips For Logic E Cigarette Cartridges
Any of you who have been refilling your LOGIC ecig cartridges will know for a fact that the little green plastic tips come apart, sometimes no matter what you use to pry them out of the tops of the cartridges.
Wanna know why? Because you’re not supposed to be refilling them! Buuut…. I found a remedy for this. The best replacement tips for LOGIC cartridges – Little rubber grommets!!
As you’ll see in this video, I refill my cartridges too; only to save money right now, because I much prefer to just buy new cartridges! Really, I do! It’s so much more convenient and neater, and you get just the right premium blend of eliquid.
But right now, funds are tight, so I am refilling them. You can see what I use on my other video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZm1eqWP9YU
So if you’re tired of the little plugs splitting apart and you don’t want to be cutting holes in the clear rubber tips – which always fall off anyway, pick up some cheap, but long-lasting rubber grommets for the tips.
“Recipe” for No Nicotine eliquid Refills
You can buy VG (vegetable glycerine) at Walmart or probably about any type of food store because it’s a food additive.
I recommend even a snub-nose (dull) needle attachment to the plunger because you’ll be able to inject the liquid down inside the cotton and completely avoid getting any into the tube inside.
