What Makes These Devices The Best Vapes For Nicotine Salts?

Not all devices or tanks are meant to vape nicotine salts. Most device and tanks aren’t. The main reasons these pod vapes are perfect for vaping nicotine salts is because of their high coil resistance and low wattage output, which results in a smooth draw. Other things that make the devices on our list perfect for vaping nicotine salts:

  • Simple and Easy to Use
  • Low Liquid use – Will save you eliquid
  • Low Power – Won’t deliver too much nicotine
  • Easy to Maintain
  • Tight Mouth to Lung Draw – Perfect for those transitioning to vaping.

What are Nicotine Salts?

Nicotine salt is the same type of nicotine that you would find naturally in tobacco leaves. It isn’t possible to vape this form of nicotine by itself without extremely high temperatures, but the researchers at Pax Labs (the creators of the JUUL) discovered a solution — benzoic acid.

By carefully considering the conditions in which the nicotine salt would be vaped, such as temperature, the researchers at Pax Labs used benzoic acid to create a nicotine salt ejuice that delivers a high concentration of available nicotine that is more easily and readily absorbed into the bloodstream.

Benzoic acid also serves another important purpose in nicotine salts. While unpaired nicotine salts are naturally high in pH (acidic) and thus produce vapor that is harsh to inhale, benzoic acid reduces the pH of the nicotine salts while still providing a large amount of available nicotine.

The end result is a more satisfying vape, without the harsh throat hit that you would get with high freebase nicotine ejuices.


Benefits of Nicotine Salts

  • More nicotine that is more quickly absorbed into the bloodstream: Compared to traditional freebase nicotine, nicotine salts deliver much more nicotine into your bloodstream much more quickly. This means that you’ll satisfy that nicotine craving a lot faster than you would using traditional freebase nicotine eliquids.
  • Smoother hit at higher nicotine concentrations: Unlike the harsh throat hit from a high nicotine ejuice, nicotine salts deliver all the nicotine you need but in a smooth hit that doesn’t hurt.
  • You’ll use less ejuice, and save more money: Because nicotine salts have a higher concentration of nicotine that is more quickly and more easily absorbed when compared to freebase nicotine ejuices, you’ll use less juice to get satisfied. In turn, you’ll be vaping less and going through less juice — it’s a win-win!
  • You don’t need an expensive/powerful mod: Because nicotine salts are best vaped at lower wattages, you don’t need to have the most expensive or powerful mod in order to get the most out of them. A device like the Aspire Breeze is great for nicotine salts, and fires at 0.6ohms at a low wattage.

Are Nicotine Salts Safe?

From all of the information that we currently have available, nicotine salts appear to be as safe as traditional freebase nicotine. Because the nicotine will affect the body in the same way, there appears to be no difference in risks and effects.

However, there is one key difference from freebase nicotine eliquids, and that is benzoic acid. While benzoic acid is generally recognized as safe for ingestion and has a very low toxicity (benzoic acid occurs naturally in many foods such as: cranberries, prunes, plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves, and most berries), there isn’t much research concerning inhalation.

Despite this, nicotine salts are still going to be a much safer option than smoking cigarettes. If you’re currently struggling to stick with vaping traditional ejuice, you should still give nicotine salt ejuices a try.

One way that nicotine salts may possibly be safer than traditional freebase nicotine eliquids is that you inhale less vapor. Because you’re getting more nicotine with each draw, you won’t be vaping as much.
