FAQS

What is an e-liquid?

You need to purchase Eliquid to put into an electronic cigarette. The main ingredients in E-liquid are Propylene Glycol/ Vegetable Glycerine  Nicotine and Flavouring. You buy it in a small bottle which you can purchase on the Pimpmyvapes website and there are many strengths and flavours to choose from.

What e-liquids are available?

We offer a variety of nicotine strengths across our entire range of e-liquid. The lowest strength is 0mg (zero nicotine), and the highest strength is 24mg (super high). Other strengths available are 3mg,6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg, depending on the range.

What is Propelene Glycol - (PG)?

Propylene glycol is a relatively thin in consistency, this kind of e-liquid is runnier than the VG variety, and is more easily absorbed by the polyfill fabric inside the cartomizer. The low density of the juice also means that gunk doesn’t build up on the heating element of your e-cigarette as fast as it does when thicker vegetable glycerin liquid is used. Propylene glycol is a tasteless odorless substance, so it doesn’t alter the flavor of the e-liquid in any way. It’s also a powerful humectant, so while it will dry your mouth and throat if used consistently, PG also produces a stronger throat hit, similar to that of tobacco cigarettes. On the down side, propylene glycol is known to cause allergic reactions in some e-cig users. These can vary from minor reactions, like a tingling sensation in the throat, to serious irritations on various parts of the body. If you experience any unusual symptoms after vaping PG e-liquid, it’s best to stop using it immediately and switch to vegetable glycerin.

What is Vegetable Glycerin (VG)?

Vegetable glycerin is a considerably thicker solution, compared to propylene glycol. On its own, VG has a slight sweet taste which also makes the e-liquid sweeter and the flavors a little difficult to detect. While PG is know to give users a dry mouth, some vapers have complained about phlegm building up in their throat after using vegetable glycerin-based juices. You also get less of a throat hit when using VG. On the upside, because of its high consistency, VG e-liquids produce significantly more vapor and doesn’t cause allergic reactions or irritations as often as propylene glycol.

What is the best way to store my e-liquid?

E-liquid is generally very stable and should be stored with a childproof sealed cap on, in a cool place away from strong light.

What strength should i use?

This depends on what brand of cigarette you normally use and how many you smoke a day. We currently  have 0mg,3mg.6mg, 12mg, 18mg, and 24mg . These could be classified as Low, Medium and High Strengths. An average smoker will use an 18mg strength unless they are smoking a lighter cigarette in which case they would go for the 6mg or if they are smoking more than 20 a day in which case they will maybe go for the 24mg.

How long does e liquid last?

The shelf life of e-liquid is around 2 years. You should store it in a cool, dark place to prolong its life.

Is e liquid safe?

E-liquid is safe, but must be handled properly. You should keep your e-liquid out of the reach of children and pets and make sure that you do not ingest any of the solution. If you do get e-liquid in your mouth, you need to rinse your mouth out thoroughly with water and seek medical advice if any is swallowed. Click here for more info on safety.

What if i dont like a flavour iv ordered, can i return it?

All e Liquids are non-returnable due to health & safety reasons. (Unless an incorrect liquid has been sent) Unfortunately, we are not able to accept returns on e-liquid that does not meet personal flavour expectations. Taste is a very subjective sense that will vary greatly from person to person. In accordance with our strict Quality Control guidelines, returned e-liquid could never be re-used for any purpose, so will not be accepted.

Do your Juices crack tanks?

If you use clearomisers made from plastic, which is usually polycarbonate, you might not be aware that there are some flavours you should avoid using in your tanks.

Some e-liquids have a tendency to crack, cloud, “melt” or otherwise damage plastics with which they come into contact.

Here is a list of known tank crackers

  • Citrus flavours (orange, lemon, lime, etc.)
  • Acids used as flavour-enhancers (malic acid, citric acid, etc.)
  • Anise/licorice flavours (including absinthe)
  • Banana flavours
  • Flavours that contain essential oils (lavender, clove, mint, etc.)
  • Cinnamon flavours, especially “candy” types
  • Soda flavours (such as root beer and cola)
  • Almond/amaretto flavours
Are there any tanks that are safe for these liquids?

Glass and stainless steel are nonreactive, so tanks made from these substances are safe for almost all flavours. Polypropylene is less likely to react to corrosive e-liquids, although some have reported damage when these tanks are exposed to certain liquids.
