If you’re not too familiar with electronic cigarettes, you may be wondering where the nicotine is contained and how strong it is.
To first clear one thing up – the nicotine isn’t contained in the electronic cigarette itself. When you first encounter a smokeless electronic cigarette, it’s natural to think they’re just like regular cigarettes.
However, the nicotine you crave is instead contained in a liquid or pre-filled cartridge you purchase separately and attach to the cigarette. What happens is when you take a drag on the electronic cigarette (just like you would with a regular cigarette), an atomizer heats the liquid and turns the nicotine into a vapor that you inhale.
That’s why we call it vaping!
As you probably know, regular cigarettes are available in a variety of strengths. Some brands like Marlboro Ultra Lights hardly contain any nicotine while others, like Lucky Strike, have a high amount of nicotine in them.
In general, electronic cigarette liquid comes in varying strengths and is tailored to meet the satisfaction of every vaper. These include:
No Nicotine – contains 0 milligrams of nicotine
Light – contains 4-8 mg of nicotine
Medium – contains 10-14 mg of nicotine
Full – contains 16-24 mg of nicotine
In light of this information, you may be wondering how long a nicotine liquid cartridge is supposed to last. Regardless of strength, each nicotine liquid cartridge lasts around 60-80 puffs. How long one lasts depends on your habits and how you intend to use your electronic cigarette.
