What do you think is the most important component of a vape? If you said the battery or atomizer, you are probably right! However, did you know that if you have a battery and an atomizer but no vape juice, there will be no vaping? Consequently, choosing a vape juice that gives you a satisfactory experience is vital. Making silly mistakes with your vape juice can significantly affect the quality of your sessions.
If you are trying to make the transition from smoking to vaping or if you have recently transitioned, this is one piece you should read. It covers the most common mistakes that vapers make when selecting, purchasing, and using their vape juice. Fortunately for you, it is not our style to point out mistakes and take the back seat. We provide educational content that will make this process easy for you - after all, they don’t call us vape experts for anything! Let us begin
Common mistakes during selecting and purchasing vape juice
#1. Selecting the cheapest/most expensive vape juice
Unfortunately, the price of e-juice does not directly reflect its quality - although the price does play some role in determining quality. Do not go for the cheapest vape juice hoping to save some bucks as it may be unsafe for consumption. However, this does not mean you only select the most expensive products. Conduct thorough research to determine the average cost for different types of e-liquids before making a purchase.
#2. Buying the wrong vape juice for your device
Different vape juices are suited for specific devices. When the wrong e-liquid is placed in a vape device, issues such as gurgling sounds, tank leaks, burning coil, or uncomfortable throat hit arise. If you have a device with a sub-ohm resistance, the ideal vape juice should have a VG ratio of 70% and above. Such devices provide DTL vaping, which requires a high wattage. Look for shortfills, CBD e-liquids (must have 70% VG), and 100% VG vape juices.
Alternatively, devices with a higher resistance than 1.0-ohm (MTL vaping) work best with vape juices with a more than 50% PG ratio. Such devices include starter kits and pods kits. They are compatible with nic salts and 50/50 e-liquids.
Always check your vape’s user manual or the product information provided to determine the right type of vape juice to purchase. Reputable vape stores, such as West Coast Vape Supply, always provide essential information, such as the ideal vape juice for every vape device on the website.
#3. Selecting a lower/higher nicotine strength than you require
Have you seen someone chain vaping or getting a headache or becoming dizzy after vaping? Chances are they are vaping the wrong nicotine strength. If your vape juice has a lower nicotine strength than is required to meet your cravings, you will find yourself vaping continuously to attain that satisfaction.
On the other hand, a higher nicotine strength may become too overwhelming for a vaper, causing headaches, dizziness, and coughing. Getting the right amount of nicotine during your transition from smoking is vital for success. New vapers are encouraged to start with the lowest nicotine strength and increase until they attain the desired effects.
#4. Working with a non-reputable vape store
Vape juice is something that you inhale into your body! Are you willing to work with a vape store with a bad or no reputation? Unfortunately, some vapers opt to work with stores that provide cheap vape juice without questioning the source or ingredients. This silly mistake is something you should avoid in 2023 and beyond. Work with a reliable, reputable, transparent vape juice store selling premium products from top brands, such as WVCS. We ensure that every vape juice we stock is safe and geared towards helping you seamlessly transition from smoking to a much safer alternative - vaping.
#5. Not taking advantage of deals and discounts to reduce the overall cost of vape juice
Once you find a reputable vape store to work with, look for deals and offers that allow you to enjoy your vape juice at lower prices. Unfortunately, not many people utilize these opportunities - a big mistake. WVCS offers tons of deals and discounts on vape juices, including coupons, vape juice bundles, and special day’s discounts.
Common mistakes made when using the vape juice
#1. Adding ingredients to the vape juice
Vape juices are not created randomly. There is an intricate process involving several steps and math calculations to achieve the end result. Consequently, adding ingredients to the vape juice throws the balance. Secondly, you can’t be sure the extra ingredient is safe to vaporize. As a result, you may inhale a toxic substance and harm your lungs. Lastly, playing with nicotine is not wise. The compound may irritate the skin on contact and cause nausea and vomiting.
#2. Not refilling your device with sufficient vape juice
Ensure the vape juice is above the wick holes to enjoy smooth and flavorful hits. This makes it easier for the vape juice to be drawn by the wick from the tank to the coil. Avoid the mistake of letting your vape juice run low, as it leads to unsaturated coil heads and, ultimately, dry hits.
#3. Not keeping track of your vape juice capacity
Nothing is as inconvenient for a vaper as unexpectedly running out of vape juice. This is especially true for anyone in the process of quitting cigarettes, as it may trigger them to smoke to satiate the nicotine craving. You can avoid this by keeping track of your vape juice capacity and purchasing a fresh batch before it runs out.
#4. Leaving spills unwiped or not disposing of vape juice properly
As mentioned before, nicotine is a toxic substance when exposed to the skin. Always wear gloves when refilling and wipe spills immediately to avoid contact. Additionally, if you want to get rid of vape juice (if contaminated or spoiled), do not dispose of it anywhere where anybody else, an animal, or a child can access it. This includes a trash can, an open field, and down the drain. Place the nicotine in a plastic bag containing absorbent material, like silica or cat litter or take it to a facility that handles hazardous waste.
#5. Not storing your vape juice properly and safely
Nicotine needs to be properly stored to maintain its integrity and avoid accidents. Like many other products, exposing nicotine to direct sunlight degrades its potency. Store the product in a dark, cool place away from children’s and pets’ reach. Additionally, avoid exposing nicotine to direct heat as the compound is highly combustible.

You can purchase premium vape juice online by reputable brands, such as Naked 100, 7 Daze, Cookie King, Juice Head, Vapetasia, Mad Hatter, Cloud Nurdz, and many others from the West Coast Vape Store.
