What are nicotine salts and why is everybody talking about them?
Nicotine Salts are an alternative way of using nicotine in e liquid. By creating a compound using other elements (such as benzoic acid) to increase the alkalinity, nicotine salts are a far smoother vaping experience.
By having a higher strength (as found in most nicotine salt eliquids), people get the satisfaction that they are looking for, just that bit quicker and without a huge amount of throat hit associated with high nicotine vaping.
Since early 2018, mouth to lung devices and pod devices started to flood the market which increased the popularity of nicotine salts. By having a smaller device with higher nicotine eliquid, people are able to satisfy their cravings in a more subtle way when they don’t want to carry a full dual battery cloud machine around in their pockets.
What are the best nicotine salt e Liquids in the UK?
We have tried and tested a huge amount of nicotine salts since they were released to market so you don’t have to, let our team do the testing and get rid of the poor quality products so you can simply pick the one (or multiple) that sound like you would enjoy – then get vaping! We’ve also included our star rating out of 5 possible stars based on our opinion of the best flavour of each brand.
