Opting for a nic salt e-liquid can offer a wealth of benefits, but not all vape devices are designed to be used with nicotine salts. Whether you are brand new to vaping and are looking to quit smoking for good, or you’re on the market for a specialist vape device that will help you get the most out of your nic salts – we can help.

From uncovering the reasons behind why certain vape devices are best suited to nic salts, to shining a light on the brands that are worth your attention, here you will find all you need to know to enhance your vaping journey.

What are nic salts?

Short for nicotine salts, nic salts are amongst the hottest trends on the vaping scene. Promising vapers a smoother, stronger hit of nicotine without the harsh throat hit, nic salts have changed the vaping game when it comes to encouraging a healthier swap from traditional cigarettes.

Although they may sound complex, nic salts are naturally found in the tobacco leaf and offer a more holistic alternative to smoking that promises to satisfy cravings for longer. When combined with liquid, nic salts can be vaped to provide an experience as close to the real thing as it gets.

Why are certain devices better for nic salts?

Nic salt e-liquids are created to offer a lower pH, which allows for a smoother yet more potent hit of nicotine. To get this reduced pH level, organic nic salts are combined with benzoic acid, which may sound alarming, but is in fact a non-toxic addition to modify the solution. This not only lowers the pH, but also reduces the alkalinity of the nicotine.

It is this unique blend however that makes the standard run of the mill vape device unsuitable for an effective experience. For instance, a high-powered mod would make for a harsh and overwhelming vape when combined with nic salts due to the high levels of nicotine involved. The good news is that as nic salts have grown in popularity, so too have vape devices specifically designed to offer optimum results for a successful journey into quitting smoking for good.

Although nic salt e-liquids are unsuitable for most standard tanks and vape devices, there is a huge market of vape pods which have been created to work perfectly with nic salts. These are known as pod kits. Here are just a few of the main reasons why nic salts are best suited to pods:

  • Lower power – Nic salt pods operate at a lower wattage due to their smaller size. Because nic salts offer a much higher nicotine content, it is generally considered unsafe to vape them with a high-powered device as this could lead to uncontrolled nicotine intake.
  • Higher coil resistance – the lower the coil resistance the stronger the hit, but with nic salts holding such a high potency of nicotine, a vape device offering a higher coil resistance is paramount. Many pod devices offer sub-ohm potential, with a typical vaper opting for anywhere between 1.0 and 1.4 ohms when vaping nic salts for the perfect experience.
  • Similar to traditional smoking – pod kits are small, light and simple to operate. Vaping nic salts in a pod not only offers effective results thanks to the high levels of nicotine, but also look and feels less daunting than a more intricate tank or mod kit.
