There are all sorts of vapers out there – cloud chasers, flavour chasers, and everything in between. All are looking for an experience that satisfies their vaping needs.
For those chasing massive plumes, there are a few things worth keeping in mind.
First, if you really want gigantic clouds, you will need the right device. For most ordinary vapers, a good mod or sub-ohm device will do the trick.
The composition of e-liquids usually involves four ingredients:
- Propylene glycol
- Vegetable glycerine
- Nicotine (optional)
Propylene glycol (PG) is a thin colourless, odourless, and flavourless substance that plays the important role of providing throat hit. It is a good carrier of flavour and it also dials back the sweetness present in vegetable glycerine to achieve flavour accuracy.
Vegetable glycerine (VG), for its part, is the portion of e-liquids that is responsible for producing vapour. Due to its naturally sweet taste, it also bestows a certain sweetness to e-liquids, so juices heavy in VG tend to have a sweet tinge to them, even sans the flavour.
Speaking of flavour, this is a diverse field that is the reason we have thousands upon thousands of different e-liquid offerings in the market.
The nicotine is optional.
Now, our interest here is the ratio of VG to PG. That’s because for a juice to qualify as a sub-ohm juice, there are certain criteria it needs to qualify; specifically, the VG content needs to be higher than the PG.
The VG:PG could be in the ratio of 60:40, 70:30, 80:20, or even pure VG (100%).
Unless you are partaking in a cloud chasing contest, you don’t really need the 100%VG which is big on vapour but falls short on every other aspect – flavour and throat hit included.
If you are interested in lots of vapour without masking the flavour, the 70/30 VG/PG seems to be the sweet spot. 80/20 VG/PG isn’t too bad either, although flavours in this ratio are more nuanced.
With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s share three of our favourite juice blends from the AquaVape sub-ohm range we bet would be a major hit with any cloud chaser out there.
If you love your apples and are in the market for a good sub-ohm juice, find out why the Double Apple from AquaVape is the go-to choice for vapers who swear by fruity flavours.
It marries the sweet taste of red apple with the crisp, slightly tangy notes of green, culminating in a full-bodied apple flavour that slaps really well.
The AquaVape Double Apple is compatible with both sub-ohms – for example, the Innokin CoolFire Mini range – and pod mods such as the brand’s refillable pod system that is the Click & Vape.
Its 80/20 VG/PG mix promises thick and -dense clouds.
AquaVape is famed for its Menthol e-liquids that have been voted some of the best in the UK.
And now they have something every cloud chaser will appreciate: a unique blend of menthol infused with your favourite fruits.
If you are a menthol enthusiast, you will love everything about this juice, from the flavour to the clouds courtesy of its high VG ratio of 80/20.
Available in a 3mg nicotine content, the AquaVape Fruit Menthol also pairs well with the Coolfire Mini range and the Click & Vape.
For many of us, vanilla is the one flavour we really can’t do without.
If you are a vanilla enthusiast, AquaVape’s Vanilla Crème is an absolute must, make no mistake. The sub-ohm juice boasts an unerring taste of the finest French vanilla beans, providing for a rich, scrumptious flavour that is certain to hijack your taste buds.
Available for purchase in a 3mg nicotine level, this is an 80/20 juice, so it ticks the vapour production checkbox nicely.
Like the other two AquaVape offerings, this too works perfectly with most coils below 0.8 ohms, including the Mini CoolFire and the Click & Vape.
If you are a cloud chaser looking for some taste-provoking juices that ace it on the vapour production aspect, you really cannot go wrong with either of these!
