Pros And Cons Of Buying An E - Liquid As Opposed To Making It At Home
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Many users of the electronic cigarette have praised it and swear by it as one of the most effective ways of quitting smoking. One of the most important parts of the stick is the e-liquid which is sometime referred to as the e-juice, which contains varying amounts of nicotine. It is important to understand the different options available for using the e-juice. You may either buy it, or you may make it at home. There are a number of issues that arise with using either method, so here are the pros and cons of buying e-liquid as opposed to making it at home.

Danger of Handling Nicotine

The first thing you need to note is, certain levels of nicotine concentration are dangerous. Nicotine in its pure form is about 1000mg/ml. When the concentration of nicotine is anywhere near that level, it is not only dangerous to use it on an electric cigarette, it is also dangerous if it came into contact with your skin. However, you are likely not to get it under such high levels of concentration, but it is best to be careful or buy an e-liquid or even make one without using nicotine.

Different flavours

One advantage of buying an electronic cigarette as well as the e-juice, is that you get to choose from a wide range of flavours. Some of these flavours may not be readily available at home, so it is actually more convenient to buy. When trying to experiment with homemade e-juice, you may end up coming up with very tasteless flavours. The same is sometimes true if you use an e-juice that is poorly made or a flavour that you do not like. But soon you will learn to choose the right flavour after you use try out different flavours.

Refillable and Prefilled Cartridges

It is also important to note that some electric cigarette will come with prefilled cartridges, which you will have to throw away once you are done with it, as opposed to those that are refillable. Prefilled cartridges come with the convenience of not having to refill now and then, while refillable once are better because you get to decide and change the type of e-juice you want from time to time without having to change the cartridge.

The advantage of buying the e-juice over making it at home, is that you can also modify it using home made products. Instead of experimenting at home by making one from scratch, some people buy e-juices with a higher concentration and dilute it with things like vegetable glycerine.
