A revolution is underway with this new form of nicotine: nicotine salts. Indeed, some ranges are now developed with nicotine salts instead of traditional nicotine, also called "nicotine base", which can be found in e-liquids. What is it exactly? What are the advantages compared to "traditional" liquids? Who is concerned? With what equipment can it be used?
These are the questions we will answer in this guide to learn more about this new process of manufacturing e-liquids:
What is nicotine salt?
As you may know, any electronic cigarette operating with liquid can be mixed or not with nicotine in order to not only reproduce the "hit" in the throat (the sensation of contraction when inhaling) but also to compensate for the lack related to the cessation of traditional cigarettes.
Conventional pods send out an average of between 5w and 10w and it is difficult for them to reproduce a significant throat hit. The manufacturers' response to this problem has been to use nicotine salt.
Nicotine salt is therefore designed to maximise the vape experience by offering liquids adapted to the low power of pods to produce a satisfying hit.
The primary property of nicotine salt is its ability to be absorbed by the body much more quickly than "conventional" nicotine. As a result, pod users feel "fuller" more quickly compared to nicotine in other cartridges on the market.
