EJUICE

What's the lifespan of your e-juices?

Our e-juices are good to go for a year or so from the date of its birth, sometimes even longer and sometimes dramatically less. The lifespan of your bottles will depend on the flavour profile and how they are stored and cared for. On the side of each bottle is an expiry date, we like to play on the safe side and this date is set to six months from the date of being created.

Woah did I just vape a carolina reaper!? that was super harsh

Shake your bottle! And shake it some more until the e-juice has an even consistency and you see bubbles spread uniformly throughout the bottle! Once you've given it a good shake squirt out a small amount (0.01ml) and pour back into your tank. You only need to shake the bottle like this the first time you use your bottle. 

If your tank is flooded with unshaken e-juice, turn the temperature down to half of what you normally would vape at, pulse the power and blow hard through the mouth piece so that vape clouds start to exit through your air intake holes, rinse and repeat 1 - 3 times but be careful not to burn your coil / cotton, pour shaken e-juice into your tank and give it 5 minutes to soak in.

My e-juice is changing colour is it gone off?
In most circumstances this is completely normal. Over time the components that come together to make your e-juice begin to oxidize and degrade, this is what they commonly call "Steeping" 

 
But not all steeping is equal, avoid exposing your bottle to direct sunlight or high temperature (like inside a car on a hot day) for extended periods of time as this can break down the nicotine and flavor components inside your e-juice. Sometimes this can turn out to be a masterpiece but 90% of the time you'll be left with a harsh mess.

Where is the e-juice made and why is it so cheap?
We want you to keep more of your hard earned money inside your pocket so you can spend it on the better things in life, we manufacture our own products and try to keep our overheads down to so we can pass the best possible price on to you. Our e-juice and stock solutions are made to the highest standards inside our cleanroom in Kenepuru, New Zealand. 

What ingredients are used in your e-juice?

Forget the fancy formulas, our e-juice is simple and it only contains 4 main ingredients. 

Vegetable Glycerin
Otherwise known as vg, glycerin, glycerine or glycerol is a viscous liquid that is non-toxic and has a subtle sweet taste about it. In vaping Glycerin produces clouds and has subtly sweet and smooth characteristics to it, usually the higher the Glyercin content of the e-juice the more these characteristics become apparent but this comes at the cost of flavour as Glycerin doesn't act as a flavour carrier as well as Propylene Glycol does. 

Propylene Glycol
Widely used in e-juice thanks to its superior flavour carrying properties, the more Propylene Glycol that's used the more pronounced the flavour is, on top of this the higher the Propylene Glycol count is inside e-juice the more devices it becomes compatible with. This is due to the wicking rate of some lower wattage coils and devices. By now you're probably wondering why don't we vape 100% Propylene Glycol formulations. The downside, or benefit for some is the throat hit. The higher the Propylene Glycol content is inside the e-juice, the more noticeable the throat hit is, for some anything about 35% total content is unpleasant and many prefer formulations with only 10 - 20% total content.  

Flavouring
This is the part that of the e-juice that we can taste when we vape, every e-juice we sell contains a single flavour matrix that contains a highly complex mix of flavour notes. We only source and use ultra high quality flavour concentrates from the worlds leading flavour houses. 

Nicotine
This is reason that most of us vape, We use Freebase Nicotine for all of our products. We will be offering Nicotine Salt e-juice shortly

What's the best way to store my e-juices?

We recommend that you store your ejuice locked up and out of reach of children and pets as e-juice can be toxic to both humans and animals if the e-juice has been orally consumed. In the event of oral consumption or you begin to feel unwell contact contact your local poison center immediately on NZ: 0800 764 766 AUS: 13 11 26 

To extend the shelf life of your e-juice we recommend storing your e-juice lock box inside the fridge if it's safe to do so or inside a cool, dark place.

How much nicotine should I get, is more better?

It all comes down to personal preference and what type of device you're using, just remember that the higher the nicotine content of the e-juice the more pronounced the effects and throat hit becomes. 

We recommend using a rebuildable atomizer or high wattage sub ohm tank for our e-juices, if you're using a recommended atomizer we've listed the differences in nicotine strength below 

0mg/mL Nicotine Strength: There is no nicotine present in the bottle at all. This dosage is best for people who want to add their own nicotine, enjoy the sensation of vaping but don't want nicotine or for learning how to do cloud tricks in your spare time. 

1.5mg/mL Nicotine Strength: The lowest nicotine strength that we offer and we only recommend this strength if you're looking to lower your nicotine intake, chain vape or if you're using an RDA with a set of monster coils. In a normal sub ohm device this nicotine dosage may be underwhelming for some. 

3mg/mL Nicotine Strength: The most common nicotine strength chosen, 3mg/mL is arguably the perfect balance between flavour and your nicotine fix. At this strength the nicotine is noticeable but it's also very subtle in a way that doesn't overtake the e-juices flavour profile 

6mg/mL Nicotine Strength:  Noticeably more pounced throat hit and stronger nicotine effects. This dosage is perfect for those who want a little throat hit and those who want to get their nicotine fix in a shorter amount of time at the slight expense of flavour. If you're new to vaping and you currently smoke cigarettes this is a good dosage to start with. 

12mg/mL Nicotine Strength: Uncomfortably intense throat hit for most and not recommended for RDA's, RTA's, RDTA and sub-ohm tanks. This is mainly used for people with lower wattage, single coil setups such as the Beserker MTL.


Can I use your e-juices to make edibles or cook with?

We don't recommend using e-juice to cook with or to prepare anything that will be orally consumed and this may lead to nicotine poisoning and hospitalization. Some flavour components may also cause mouth and stomach irritation such as Koolada etc.
