E-liquid: how long does a bottle of e-liquid last?
Replacing the cigarette with a vaporizer remains one of the best alternatives to stop old bad habits. Indeed, less harmful to health, vaping allows you to reduce your nicotine consumption.
Vapes have been trending with consumers ever since they hit the market. This is due in particular to the fact that it offers a wide range of e-liquid tastes while being less harmful to health.
Since e-liquid is consumable, you must be wondering how long a bottle of e-liquid lasts. We will see this throughout this article.
What is an e-liquid?
The electronic cigarette works using the principle of vaporization. Thus, to produce vapour, it is necessary to fill a tank with e-liquid. After which, it will be possible thanks to a combustion system, to heat the liquid to a certain temperature to produce steam.
It should be noted that the e-liquid is marketed in the form of bottles whose end consists of a perceived to facilitate the filling of the tank of the electronic cigarette.
Regarding the functioning of the induction of the liquid to vape, you should know that the electronic cigarette is equipped with a battery which activates the “mode”. Subsequently, it sends an electrical charge to the resistance level.
The latter will transform this electric charge into a thermal current, thus promoting the temperature rise of the e-liquid up to around 60°C and steam is produced.
Certain components of the liquid to be vaped, and more precisely their ratio, define and influence the volume of vapour released, but also the intensity of the hit in the mouth.
What is an electronic cigarette liquid made of?
It is very important to learn about the composition of an e-liquid, especially when you are new to the field of electronic cigarettes. This is also valid if you plan to make your e-liquids, more commonly called “DIY” (Do It Yourself).
Therefore, it is necessary to know that an e-liquid is made up of 3 to 4 major ingredients for an efficient recipe, namely:
- vegetable glycerin;
- Propylene glycol;
- Food flavourings (one or more);
Regarding the presence of nicotine, it should be noted that the latter is optional. Indeed, there are e-liquids marketed without nicotine, and this is for people who are not addicts or for those who are coming to the end of smoking cessation.
As for one of the key ingredients of e-liquid, namely propylene glycol or PG, the latter is essential for the manufacture of liquid to vape. Indeed, this food additive is by nature used in the industrial, food-processing and pharmaceutical fields. It was therefore barely ten years ago that this component was used for vaporization purposes for electronic cigarettes.
Vegetable glycerin, also called “GV”, is a liquid substance that is both colourless, but also odourless, it has a somewhat thick texture. The latter is often present in the composition of products intended for the cosmetics and agri-food market.
Thus, its main role is to bring out the sweet sensation in the mouth of the aromas of the e-liquid, it also intervenes to soften the sensation of a hit in the throat and reduces the tingling effects.
How long does a 10ml bottle of e-liquid last?
Regarding the duration of use of a bottle of e-liquid with a capacity of 10 ml, it should be noted that several factors come into play, in particular the type of consumption. Indeed, the rate of consumption greatly influences the duration of a bottle.
Thus, for a 10 ml bottle, it is generally more common to reach the end of the latter after 2 to 4 days, for average consumption. However, people who do not vape a lot should consume their bottles over seven days.
Therefore, the duration of consumption of the e-liquid depends essentially on the frequency and intensity of consumption of a person. This is why the duration varies from one consumer to another.
