Your Questions, Answered: Everything You Need to Know About Nicotine Salts E-Cig Liquid


In advance of Dinner Lady’s anticipated release of 15 new Nicotine Salt flavours, we’re here to cover everything you need to know about Nic Salts. From their composition to their purpose,

Understanding Nic Salts

In recent years, Nicotine Salts have grown increasingly popular with vapers – and for good reason.

Nic Salt e-liquids are formed by adding regular freebase nicotine to acids like benzoic acid. Since freebase nicotine has a higher pH, and therefore increased alkalinity, the benzoic acid helps to reduce the pH level and brevity of the throat hit. The combination of the two therefore helps to minimize the alkalinity to create a smoother throat hit at the strongest nicotine strengths.

Nic Salts vs Freebase: what’s the difference?

Unlike freebase e-cig liquids, Nicotine Salts are more quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore more closely mimic the instant hit of nicotine experienced by smokers. For this reason, Nic Salts are preferred by vapers who vape in short, quick bursts.

Freebase e-liquids, on the other hand, take longer to absorb and lead to more frequent vaping in an attempt to satiate the cravings. They are, however, better suited to sub-ohm vaping with less cloud production.

Choosing the Right Strength

Nicotine salt e-cig liquids are available in two strengths: 10mg and 20mg. 20mg Salts are well-suited to heavy smokers whilst 10mg Salts are ideal for medium to light smokers. Find out more about nicotine strengths here.

Choosing the Best Vape Kit

Owing to simple vaporisation and high strength, Nic Salts are best suited to low-powered e-cig devices. Refillable pods and pod mods that are designed for mouth-to-lung vaping are the ideal vaping options.

Avoid devices like high-powered box mods that are specially designed for sub-ohm, direct-to-lung vaping styles. These vape kits are best suited to freebase liquids that are designed for vapour production.

To make things simple, we’ve curated a selection of vape kits to make it easier to find the ideal e-cig to pair with Nic Salt liquids. Shop here.
