About 50/50 E-liquid
50/50 e-liquid is a vape juice that contains equal proportions of two main ingredients: propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), as well as flavourings and nicotine. VG and PG are two safe liquids that are scientifically considered sugar alcohols, but don’t worry – you’re not actually consuming any sugar or alcohol when you vape them.
Let’s break down the specific features and uses of both VG and PG.
Propylene glycol (or PG) is a clear, flavourless and odourless substance that is used in vape juice to carry the flavour of the liquid. A petroleum by-product, PG is safe to inhale in vapour and is also used as a food preservative and in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics such as toothpaste.
E-liquids with a high PG percentage tend to be slightly more irritating to the throat, causing a stronger throat hit and sometimes leading to symptoms such as a dry mouth, sore throat or dehydration. To counter this, vapers should make sure that they drink a lot of water while vaping with an e-liquid containing 50% or more PG.
Vegetable glycerin (or VG) is a clear, viscous liquid with a slightly sweet flavour. Derived from vegetable oils, this natural chemical helps provide the large clouds of vapour that sub-ohm vapers and cloud-chasers enjoy. Outside of vaping, VG is also used in foods, cosmetics and medicines.
While VG provides a smoother throat hit from your vape, it can still lead to some of the same symptoms as PG: a sore throat, dry mouth and dehydration.
50% VG 50% PG Vape Juice
50/50 e-liquid contains an equal proportion of these two ingredients. Confusingly, 50/50 e-liquid is also sometimes called ‘high PG e-liquid’ because of its higher than average proportion of PG (most shortfills contain around 70% VG and 30% PG).
So how does 50/50 e-liquid perform in your vape? Firstly, 50/50 e-liquids are ideal for flavour-chasers who aren’t fussed about blowing huge clouds. While PG carries flavour effectively, it doesn’t create the dense vapour that high VG e-liquids provide. This means that 50/50 e-liquids are perfect for vaping on the go when you don’t want to create huge vape clouds in public.
Secondly, 50/50 e-juice is a fairly thin type of e-liquid, which means that it does not take significant amounts of power to vaporise. As a result, 50/50 e-liquid is perfect for use in low-powered vape pens and pod systems.
Moreover, the thin and less viscous nature of 50/50 e-liquid is easier on your vape’s coils because it is less likely to leave gunky residue than sticky, high VG e-liquids. This also means that 50/50 e-liquids wick faster than those with high VG percentages, meaning that you can start enjoying your vape faster and more frequently.
Can 50/50 e-liquid help me quit smoking?
Combined with a good pod kit such as the NVee Pod Refillable Vape Kit, a 50/50 e-liquid can be a great choice for ex-smokers. These e-liquids do not require a lot of power to vaporise, so they can be used without taking a huge toll on your vape's battery, meaning that you can enjoy vaping them all day. Furthermore, the slightly stronger throat hit of e-liquids with 50% PG is enjoyed by many former smokers who miss the sensation of cigarettes.
Finally, 50/50 e-liquids come in a wide variety of flavours, meaning that former smokers can switch to vaping without ever getting bored. With so many exciting flavours to try, you won't look back!
Can I buy 50/50 e-liquids in bigger than 10ml bottles?
Our 50/50 e-liquids contain nicotine and therefore must only be sold in 10ml bottles in the UK and EU, in accordance with the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) regulations. If you want to get more value for money, why not take advantage of our multi-buy offers, allowing our UK and EU customers to get a selection of delicious 10ml nic salts and e-liquids for amazing prices?
Are 50/50 e-liquids good for my coils?
While all vape coils will deteriorate and need replacing over time, opting for a 50/50 e-liquid can extend your coil's lifespan. While viscous, high VG e-liquids leave residue on your coils, the thinner consistency of 50/50 e-liquids means that they do not leave as much gunk behind. As a result, your coils can perform at their best for longer.
What nicotine strength do I need?
Nicotine strength will depend on each individual vaper. If you're making the switch from smoking to vaping, this guide can help you decide how much nicotine your 50/50 vape juice should contain.
Light/social smokers - 3mg nicotine. This is the lowest nicotine strength and is suitable for anyone used to smoking only a few cigarettes a day.
Smokers of around 10 cigarettes a day - 6mg nicotine. Still a fairly low nicotine strength, 6mg is appropriate for anyone who usually opts for around 10 cigarettes in a day.
A pack a day smokers - 12mg nicotine. This higher dosage of nicotine is ideal for anyone used to smoking a lot of cigarettes and who needs to keep the cravings away.
More than a pack a day - 18mg nicotine strength. This very high nicotine dose is great for heavy smokers, but we recommend gradually decreasing the amount of nicotine you vape over time.
What device should I use with 50/50 e-liquids?
We recommend starting out with the NVee Vape Pod - an easy-to-use, refillable vape pod kit that is great for use with 50/50 e-liquids. You may also choose the NVee Plus Vape Kit, a more customisable device that allows you to change the airflow to get better performance from the vape. If you want to try some high VG e-liquids after experimenting with 50/50 vape juice, the NVee Plus also allows you to add an NVee Pro II Coil to complement these high VG e-liquids.
What's the best 50/50 e-liquid?
This all comes down to personal preference, so we recommend trying a bunch of different flavours to figure out what you like. If you're a fruit fan, why not try the Blood Orange or Perfect Pineapple e-liquids from our Tropical range. Menthol lovers will adore our Ice range; try the Peach Iced Tea Ice for a super refreshing vape or Black Jack Ice for a flavour blast mixing cool menthol with spicy aniseed. If you have a sweet tooth, we recommend the Candy range's Cola Bottles or Mango Sours e-liquid, while soft drink fans might prefer Sparkling Pear from our Fizz range. The choice is yours!
