How do you choose the best e-liquid to purchase in New Zealand? This is a question that we get asked very often. The best e-liquid would depend on your personal preferences. Therefore, we have created a simple guide to help you choose your favourite e-liquid.

WHAT is E-Liquid?

E-Liquid, or also known as vape juice is created by combining nicotine with VG (Vegetable Glycerin) and PG (Propylene Glycol) as well as flavouring to give you the perfect taste and flavour that you would enjoy. It is important to have a good balance between VG and PG as it helps to mimic the throat hit from smoking a cigarette, it also impacts the amount of vapour cloud produced. All these factors will make your vaping experience more enjoyable.

Full VG option is available for people that are allergic or sensitive to Propylene Glycol. However, most people would choose higher VG ratio vape juice for the increase in vapour and clouds produced by the vegetable glycerine ingredient.

PG (Propylene Glycol) on the other hand is typically used as a flavouring carrier in a wide range of food. Full PG e-liquid is not as smooth and can leave a harsh feeling on the throat when compared with VG. Therefore, 


The nicotine strength (level) is measured in milligrams per millilitre, it is expressed as mg/mL or often just shorten as mg. E-Liquid comes in multiple strengths depending on the manufacturer. Our partner Shosha, provide a range of nicotine strength. Ranging from 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 35, to 50 mg of nicotine strength. As you can see there’s a variety of nicotine strengths for you to choose from. So what nicotine level should I vape? Understanding what the different strength means to you can make the difference between a positive experience and a negative one with vaping, especially for first-time vapers.


When it comes to deciding what nicotine level you should vape, it depends on the following two factors:

  1. How many cigarettes do you smoke per day before switching to vaping?
  2. What type of e-cigarette are you using or willing to buy as this will determine your style of vaping
