Best Vape Devices For Nicotine Salt E-liquids

The rise of salt nicotine over the last few years has created almost a sister market within its own, complete with proprietary kits designed solely to cater for salt nicotine e-liquids. Whilst many pod devices and starter kits are intended for both salt nicotine and regular freebase nicotine e-liquids, we thought we’d devise a rundown of our top 5 favourite and most hyped kits to get the most from salt nicotine.

 

What Are Nic Salts E-Liquids?

Salt nicotine e-liquids allow you to vape at a higher nicotine strength, without the harsh throat hit that usually comes with standard freebase nicotine e-liquids. This makes them popular with vapers who are looking for a high strength and fast absorbing nicotine, which can satisfy cravings for longer along with a smooth inhale and exhale. Nicotine Salts have been growing in popularity at a rapid rate, with most of the well-known and revered e-liquid manufacturers releasing a dedicated range. Coincidentally, vape hardware manufacturers have followed suit with the development, producing custom vape devices designed to be used with salt nicotine.
