New users to the electronic cigarette market are often surprised by many aspects of the device including its accessories. When it comes to flavors, many users become even more surprised by what’s actually available. Generally, here’s what the average new user expects to find in relation to the catalog of flavors available:
- Classic Tobacco
- Maybe a tobacco blend such as Turkish
- Cherry for those who are feeling more adventurous
What you will come to find out as you begin to search through online catalogs is that this doesn’t touch what you can actually expect to find. Smart companies are also expanding their line of flavors all the time, so what you find today could be different tomorrow. Smart companies also offer variety packs of prefilled cartridges to try to encourage customers to try new flavors.
What You Can Expect
The first thing to realize is that many companies offer a range of strengths available for each flavor too. For example you may find your favorite brand offers:
- Full Strength
As you shop different flavors or even different brands you can look for this option. The next thing to realize is that you may find different flavors based on whether you are buying pre-filled cartridges or e juice to fill your device yourself even from the same brand.
Many e-cig users are interested in tobacco flavored cartridges or e-liquid. Whether you intend to start with this and branch out or simply stick with these flavors that are close and true to traditional tobacco cigarettes is up to you. Here is an idea of what may be available to you, aside from what was previously mentioned:
- Fire Cured
- West Coast
- East Coast
- Plus plenty of other tobacco and tobacco blend flavors
One of the next most popular flavor categories include the fruits, and you can find varieties such as:
- And yes this is still just a partial list
Aside from all of this there are some other flavors which are extremely popular including:
- Cola or Energy Drink
- Buttery Rum
- Bubble gum
- And more flavors than you can possibly imagine
Another important factor to keep in mind is that e-juice or pre-filled cartridges can contain nicotine. In fact, it can contain higher levels than even the strongest cigarettes. On the other hand, many brands offer the option of ordering flavors that contain zero nicotine. Make sure you know how much nicotine you are getting before placing your order.
One reason some users prefer the three part electronic cigarette devices is that it means filling it yourself. Certain cartridges can also be refilled, although the quality may not be quite as good. For those users who love to control the amount of flavor they have, though, this approach is generally thought to be the most rewarding.
There’s another reason some users love the do it yourself approach and that’s the ability to play mixologist. If you buy different flavors you can try combining them to come up with your new favorite flavor. For example, you may make something like this up:
- Combine Chocolate and Banana for Chocolate covered Banana
- Cherry or Vanilla and Cola
- Chocolate and Mint or Cherry
- Kiwi and Watermelon or Strawberry
- Pomegranate and almost anything
Obviously you get the idea that this is the approach to develop your own flavors or make flavors that only you might want or crave.
Caring for E-Juice
The first thing to keep in mind is that if your e-liquid contains even a small amount of nicotine then you must handle it with great care. Overexposure or ingestion of nicotine can lead to an overdose that could be harmful or fatal. Take care to keep this liquid away from small children and pets as well. Be sure also to wash your hands after using these liquids to prevent accidental ingestion.
Aside from that you should keep your juice in a place that is cool and dark. Doing this will help prolong the shelf life. Not only that, but to help prevent the quality of your liquids being compromised you must take care to keep it stored properly. This is especially important if you intend to keep several different flavors for mixing and will not be using them up as quickly as you may normally.
Different flavored liquids for this device are part of the fun of having one in the first place. Even if you would not normally venture out to try different flavors you should consider taking advantage of the options.
