Nic salt eliquid works in just the same way as a freebase nicotine eliquid and can be used in a wide range of vape kits. The key difference is that salt nicotine provides a much smoother throat hit and can be absorbed quicker, which means a smoother vape and faster-acting nicotine. They have proven to be a big hit with vapers who want high nicotine content to satisfy their cravings, but find the throat hit of freebase eliquids a bit too harsh. If you're looking to try something a bit different, there's also the option of hybrid nicotine. Hybrids combine both standard freebase and salt nicotine, the result is an e-liquid that still offers fast absorption but a more noticeable throat hit.
Nic salt eliquids are generally available in 50% VG or lower concentrations; making them ideal for use with MTL vape kits. Premixed nic salt eliquids are generally not recommended for sub ohm kits due to their higher PG content, as they will create a throat hit that's too harsh. However, there are nicotine shots that use nic salts and can be added to high VG shortfills, which are perfect for sub ohm kits.
The popularity of nic salt eliquids has meant the category is quickly growing and there are almost as many nic salt flavours available as there are in freebase. Not only can you find classics such as Heisenberg and Lemon Tart as nic salts, there's constantly new flavour combinations being released. As always, flavour choice is a personal preference, so we recommend you experiment with flavours as you might notice notes that didn't come through in freebase versions. Check out our full range of flavours to find your new all-day vape.
As you can see, there are a lot of arguments as to why nic salt e-liquid is such a hit. That being said, it all comes down to personal preference and you should always consider what option is best suited to you.
The smooth throat hit that made nic salt famous makes it the ideal option for a lot of vapers, as it allows you to use higher nicotine strengths without a harsh throat hit. Although, many switchers who smoked stronger cigarettes will prefer a more noticeable throat hit as it better replicates their smoking experience, making the transition to vaping feel more natural. If this is the case then we recommend a freebase nicotine e-liquid.
Remember there are nic salt options for every vape kit, however, if you don't want to be tied to shortfills for your sub ohm kit, freebase eliquids give you more choice as they are available in a range of higher VG ratios.
