Are you an avid vaper looking to enhance your vaping experience and get more flavour from your vape kit? Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced vaper, there are various techniques and adjustments you can make to achieve richer and more satisfying flavours.
In this blog, we’ll be exploring the different aspects of vaping, from vape kits and e-liquids to vaping styles and settings, that can significantly impact how flavourful your vape is. By the end, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge to take your vaping to the next level.
Understanding the Components of Your Vape Kit
Before we dive into the ways to enhance the flavour of your vape, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of the key components of your kit. Knowing how each element of your vape device plays a role in flavour production will enable you to optimise your vaping setup for the best taste.
The Vape Mod: The Powerhouse of Flavour
The vape mod is the main body of your vape kit, responsible for supplying power to the atomizer. Opt for a high-quality mod with adjustable wattage and temperature settings to fine-tune your vaping experience. This allows you to find the sweet spot that brings out the most flavour from your e-liquid.
The Atomizer: Where Flavour Comes to Life
The atomizer is the heart of your vape kit, housing the coil and wick. It is crucial to keep your atomizer clean and well-maintained to ensure optimal flavour production. Regularly replace coils and use quality wicks to avoid any undesirable tastes.
The E-Liquid: Choosing the Right Flavors
The e-liquid, also known as vape juice, that you select plays a significant role in the overall flavour experience. Experiment with various flavours and find the ones that suit your taste preferences best. Consider using high-quality, reputable e-liquid brands for a more consistent and flavourful vaping experience.
Tips to enhance e-liquid flavour
If you’re experiencing any flavour-related issues with your vape kit, here are some tips to help you restore and enhance the flavour of your favourite e-liquid.
Choose the right vape kit
When it comes to obtaining maximum flavour, selecting the right vape kit is crucial. Vape kits come in various types, such as vape pens, pod kits, and sub-ohm kits. If you prefer portability and ease of use, go for a pod kit like the E100 Aegis Eteno kit from GeekVape. On the other hand, sub-ohm kits are ideal for cloud chasers who also want great flavour. Ensure your vape kit has versatile settings, such as adjustable airflow and variable wattage, to tailor your vaping experience.
Optimise your e-liquids
The e-liquid you choose plays a significant role in the flavour intensity of your vape. If you feel your e-liquid isn’t really hitting the spot, try experimenting with different flavours and ratios of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG). Higher PG ratios are excellent for mouth-to-lung vaping and provide stronger flavour, while high VG ratios are favoured by cloud chasers for more vapour. Try playing around with different ratios to find the one that suits your palate best.
Many new vapers who started off with disposable vapes often have a hard time switching over to reusable vape kits because of a difference in flavour intensity. If you’re one of these vapers, we recommend trying out e-liquids that are designed to mimic the flavour of disposable vapes. Some of our favourites right now include Elf Bar’s Elfliq Nic Salts and Fruit Drop’s Bar Drop Salts.
Quality matters – invest in leading brands
Investing in high-quality e-liquids and vape kits from leading brands is essential for a more enjoyable vaping experience. World-renowned vape manufacturers like GeekVape and Vaporesso are loved for a reason – they frequently release top performing vape kits and accessories that are guaranteed to create a smooth and flavourful vaping experience.
Leading e-liquid brands often use superior ingredients and follow strict manufacturing processes as well, ensuring consistent flavour and vapour production. If you’re in the market for a new, reliable e-liquid we recommend checking out Twelve Monkeys and Wick Liquor, both brands are well known throughout the UK for their consistent high quality and performance.
Keep your vape tank and coil clean
Regular maintenance of your vape tank and coil is crucial to maintain the integrity of your e-liquids flavour. Clean your tank thoroughly whenever you switch flavours to avoid any residual taste. If you’re new to vaping and tank cleaning, check out our step-by-step guide on how to clean your vape tank.
Additionally, replace your coil regularly to ensure optimal performance and prevent any burnt or off flavours.
Start steeping your e-liquids
It might sound like we’re talking about tea brewing, but hear us out. Steeping your vape juice is one of the best ways to improve a DIY e-liquids throat hit and flavour potency, which is why it’s standard practice among more experienced vapers.
Steeping e-liquid is the process of combining the PG, VG, and flavour concentrates of the vape juice in order to improve its overall flavour. Think of it like ageing a fine bottle of wine. Note: if you buy e-liquids from a vape shop or online store, these will have already been steeped. You only need to steep e-liquids if you mix your own.
There are a few different ways to steep e-liquids, with the first being the easiest – just leave it alone. After mixing your e-liquid, simply seal the bottle and leave it in a cool, dark place for anywhere between 2-7 days. This will give it time for chemical reactions in the e-liquid to take place.
Another method we also recommend is the bath method. For this method, you’ll need to fill a cup up with warm water and place the bottle of e-liquid into the cup. Let the bottle sit in the cup until the water cools down. You can also top up the cup with more warm water as it cools, depending on how potent you like your vape juice to be.
When using the bath method, make sure the water isn’t too hot as this can end up degrading the flavour concentrates and nicotine.
Fine-tune your vape settings
Another way to enhance flavour is to play around with your vape’s power settings to get the most out of your e-liquids. The best vape kits will provide you with ways to customise it, whether it’s through different buttons or by simply using the fire button.
Adjust the wattage settings, airflow, and coil resistance to find the sweet spot for your favourite flavours. The level and range of customisation your device provides can significantly enhance your overall vaping experience.
While experienced vapers can easily use more advanced vape kits to experiment with their vape, beginners shouldn’t feel left out either. New vapers can still enjoy customising their device with more user friendly vape kits like the Aspire Cyber X Pod Kit and Innokin Kroma 217 Vape Kit.
Explore different vaping styles
Experimenting with different vaping styles can also affect the flavour. Mouth-to-lung vaping, which uses plus ohm coils and vape kits, allows the vapour to linger in your mouth, intensifying the taste. Mouth-to-lung vape kits are also typically more beginner friendly, with many easy to use vape pens and pod kits designed for MTL vaping.
On the other hand, direct to lung vaping uses sub ohm coils to deliver a burst of flavour with bigger clouds, perfect for any vapers who want to get into cloud chasing. While you may need to use a more advanced device to start cloud chasing properly, there are plenty of vape pens and easy to use pod mods that are compatible with sub ohm coils.
Try experimenting with different coils, switching to a different type of tank, or picking up a completely new device to see which vaping style complements your taste preferences.
Experiment with nic salts and nicotine strengths
Nicotine strength can impact the flavour and throat hit of your e-liquid. Higher nicotine levels might overpower the taste of your favourite flavours, so next time you’re mixing together your shortfill with a nic shot try using lower nicotine strengths for a more pronounced taste.
Additionally, some vapers find that using nicotine salts can enhance the flavour and satisfaction of their vape. If you’re used to vaping with disposable vapes or pre-filled disposable pods, then you’re probably already used to nic salts. They’re excellent at producing strong flavours, while still providing that smooth throat hit.
Nicotine salts are also the better option if you use vape pens, a pod kit, or any device that uses a plus ohm coil.
Embrace different flavours
Don’t limit yourself to just one flavour; if anything, this can lead you to develop vapers tongue. Vapers tongue, also known as flavour fatigue, is when you lose the ability to taste your e-liquids flavour. This usually happens to vapers that only stick to vaping with the same flavour.
There’s a vast world of e-liquid flavours, both bottled up or available in disposable pods, waiting to be explored. Experiment with different fruit, dessert, and beverage flavours to find new favourites. Variety is the spice of life, and the same applies to your vaping experience.
