Is 10mg Nic Salt Strong?

Published 2 August 2022, Updated 10 April 2024

Is 10mg Nic Salt Strong?

10mg nic salts are best used by light smokers who smoke less than 20 cigarettes a day.

Salt nic liquids are a great alternative to help you quit smoking and provide you with a satisfying nicotine hit. 10mg nic salts are a little different to freebase nicotine e-liquid, as they contain acidic compounds such as benzoic acid, which results in a much smoother throat hit.

If you're a light to moderate smoker, we recommend vaping a 10mg Nicotine salt e-liquid. A 10mg nicotine salt will provide a mild throat hit and will work perfectly with a pod system that supports a 1-1.6ohm coil.

If you're a light smoker who smokes 2-4 cigarettes daily and find 10mg too strong, we recommend using a 5mg nicotine salt or even trying out freebase nicotine. Nic salts are widely available in 10mg and 20mg; however, a few brands now manufacture nicotine salts in various nicotine strengths. Because freebase nicotine has been around for longer, they are more widely available in different nicotine strengths.

10mg Nic salts are available in disposable vapes; if you are out and about and want the minimum fuss, then disposables are a great alternative rather than using a vape kit.

Kits to use with 10mg Nic salts

10mg nic salt e-liquids are primarily available in 50/50 VG/PG. Nic salts are ideal for low-wattage devices such as pod kits. Low-wattage devices mainly support coils over 1 ohm, which is perfect for use with a 50/50 10mg nic salt.

Is 20mg Salt Nic A Lot?

20mg nic salt e-liquid is best suited for heavy smokers who smoke around a pack of cigarettes daily.

20mg nicotine salt e-liquids are great to use if you are a heavy smoker. If you're a light smoker, we recommend a lower nicotine strength, as 20mg may be too much. Please be aware that nicotine is a highly addictive substance; therefore, choosing your nicotine strength wisely is essential.

Nicotine salts provide you with a smooth throat hit at higher nicotine strengths. If you vape 20mg of freebase nicotine, you will experience a harsh throat hit and likely cough. Nicotine salts are aimed at smokers who need a nicotine hit, which acts fast and is satisfying. Nic salts provide precisely this.

Most disposable vapes on the market today are 20mg nic salt e-liquid; these are focused on smokers trying to quit smoking cigarettes as they offer such a smooth throat hit alongside great flavour. Nic salts are best suited for mouth-to-lung vaping and are best used with low-wattage devices with a coil resistance of around 1 ohm. Using a freebase nicotine e-liquid at a high nicotine strength will not give you a satisfying vape experience compared to nicotine salts.

Nicotine salt e-liquids produce less vapour than freebase nicotine, and you will not be vaping as often due to the higher nicotine strength.
