Explore this guide to learn about choosing the right nicotine strength depending on your expectations.
Nicotine is an ingredient in tobacco and most vaping e-liquids, disposable vapes and nicotine pouches*. It’s an addictive substance that can be consumed in various ways.
The numbers on e-liquid bottles represent how much nicotine is contained in the liquid. Most varieties include the same ingredients: pharmaceutical-grade nicotine polymer, propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and flavours. The amounts and ratios of these ingredients can differ from product to product.
E-liquids also come in different nicotine strengths suited to various consumers. This lets vapers control their nicotine consumption and can be helpful for those looking to reduce their intake.
Curious about vape strengths? Before you refill your vape, get to know the difference between nicotine strengths in e-liquids, including the following:

Choosing the most suitable nicotine strength is a decision only you can make. For nicotine consumers transitioning from smoking to vaping, it can be helpful to understand how nicotine content translates from cigarettes to e-cigarettes.
If you’re using an open-system vape, the best way to choose the right e-liquid is to look at your device coil’s ohm rating (a measure of electrical resistance).
When you know the ohm rating, you can use the following guidance to choose an e-liquid with the correct PG (propylene glycerol) to VG (vegetable glycerin) ratio.
Most e-liquid bottles have their PG/VG ratio displayed on the label. You can use this ratio to determine which is best for your device.
Over 50% VG is suitable for coils with less than 1ohm resistance.
Over 50% PG is suitable for coils with more than 1ohm resistance.
50/50 VG/PG suits most vapes.
Nicotine strength doesn’t impact the consistency of e-liquid, so you can choose an option with the VG/PG ratio that suits your device in your preferred strength and flavour.
Learning how to translate e-liquid nicotine strengths into cigarette terms can help you determine the most suitable option for you.
