Nicotine Salts (nic salts) are used in exactly the same way as traditional vape liquids, however, the nicotine is absorbed into your body quicker and is much smoother to inhale than traditional high strength e-liquid. So you can satisfy cravings quicker, vape a little less and save some money!
Nic Salts Vs E-Liquids
E-liquids are made by taking the freebase nicotine from the tobacco plant and chemically treating it, leaving an incredibly pure liquid, that we then mix with PG and VG to create an e-liquid. Nic salts are a little different to this but still provide a great vaping experience.
Nic salts are closer to the nicotine you’d find in a tobacco leaf - essentially closer to the "purest form" of nicotine. This makes them smoother and more easily absorbed by your body, as well as having a higher nicotine strength.
Because there is more nicotine in your average nic salt, ex-smokers or those who want to quit smoking can satisfy their cravings quicker and easier, leading to more satisfaction and, potentially, less vape use. The smoother throat hit also helps with this transition.
Should I Switch To Nicotine Salt E-Liquid?
The switch to nic salt e-liquid really depends on your personal preference. This juice can provide deeper flavours, a smoother vaping experience, and can easily be used with most vape pens.
If you're quitting smoking or are already an ex-smoker, nic salt e-liquid provides that much-needed nicotine hit in a more efficient vessel - finally, your vape pen doesn't need to be glued to your mouth all day to achieve this!
Because nic salt e-liquid enhances mouth to lung vaping, you will receive a less intense hit whenever you inhale, whereas some e-liquid products might not achieve this, leaving you with a somewhat disappointing experience.
Enjoy the sweeter side of e-liquid flavours? Nic salt e-liquid is the perfect fit for you, as they do not affect the flavour as much as freebase nicotine-based e-liquids.

What's In Our Nicotine Salts?
At 88Vape, our cheap nic salts are made from the highest-quality ingredients, in a 50/50 nic salt, e-liquid ratio. This allows them to deliver nicotine faster than normal 'freebase' nicotine e-liquids without the harsh throat feel that traditional high strength nicotine vape juices provide.
Our nicotine salt ingredients are pharmaceutical grade, with food-grade flavourings used to create our signature flavours. While our nic salts are more potent than standard freebase 18mg and 20mg e-liquids, they are still free from banned nasties such as Diacetyl, Pulegone, or Vitamin E Acetate.
We pride ourselves on using only four ingredients in our nicotine salt products - Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Flavourings and Nicotine
For vegans and vegetarians looking to quit smoking, our products are also friendly for both lifestyles.
Ocassionally we do tweak our recipes to improve the flavour, so don't be surprised if what you buy today is a little different from what you bought last a few months back - it just means we're improving our recipe!
How Can I Use Nic Salts?
Nicotine salt can be used in the same way as other e-liquids, but the type of hardware you use might differ. With nicotine salt, it is better to use pod vapes and lower power vape devices. The lower wattage allows you to have a more authentic vaping experience, one which is also preferred by ex-smokers and more experienced vapers.
Nicotine salt also provides a less harsh throat hit, but if it is used in devices with a higher wattage, you might experience a harsher, less pleasant vape. The flavour may also be affected by using devices made for other e-liquids, so be sure to remember this when deciding on which nic salts to choose. For example, our H-Blue nic salts can be used with any tank or coil, whereas the Sweet Strawberry 16mg should only be used with non-Sub-ohm coils.
What e-liquid should I buy?
The type of device you have dictates what type of e-liquid you should use. From there, you can choose whatever flavour picks your fancy as it's all down to personal preferences. The below are our guidelines when it comes to buying the right type of e-liquid:
Best E-Liquid for Mouth to Lung (MTL) Kit
MTL devices typically tend to go up to 14W, using a coil resistance of 1.0ohm and higher (e.g. Classic, Deluxe, Cosmo A1, ProPod).
For MTL devices, we recommend using a PG70% or 50/50 e-liquid in any nicotine strength you require (from 1mg to 20mg)
Best E-Liquid for Direct to Lung (DTL) Kit
DTL devices, also known as sub-ohms, typically tend to start at around 20W and use a coil resistance lower than 1.0ohm (e.g. ProMod on a 0.6ohm coil, 50W Mod Pen).
For sub-ohm devices, we recommend using a VG70-80% or 50/50 e-liquid with the nicotine strength no higher than 3-6mg.
What flavour e-liquid should I buy?
Flavour preference is all down to the tastes of the individual, so we can't really tell you what you should buy. However, we do have many flavours that people buy month after month and never deviate from - these are known as 'all day vapes'.
Best flavours for ex-smokers
While switching to vaping opens up a World of flavours, many ex-smokers find our tobacco, menthol and fruit based flavours a good place to start.
We recommend: Menthol Chill, Rolling Leaf, 88Fusion & Raspberry Ripple.
Best flavours for a sweet tooth
The beauty of vaping is having all of the deliciously moreish flavours to try and for some, it's a case of the sweeter the better.
We recommend: Pear Drops, Lemon Sherbet, Sweet Strawberry, H-Blue
Best flavours for adventurous vapers
If you like e-liquids with a 'kick', then our ice range are the ideal ones to try. Delicious flavours with an extreme cooling sensation. You've been warned!
We recommend: Black Ice, Cherry Coola, Cocktail Ice, Cool Fruity Fizz, Cupcake Frosting, Summer Blast.
What nicotine strength should I use?
The nicotine strength you need all depends on what your smoking habits are (or were!). There’s no hard and fast rule, so you’ll need to experiment.
But as a rule of thumb, we recommend the following based on how cigarettes you smoke per day:
15+ per day – 16mg to 20mg
10-15 per day – 11mg to 16mg
3-10 per day – 3mg to 6mg
1-2 per day – 1mg
0 – nicotine free
