Salt e-juices have trended upwards since 2018. The vaping industry saw a huge shift with the rise of small compact devices spearheaded by the JUUL and JUUL alternatives. These devices were smaller, lower wattage, and produced less vapor. The biggest difference was that each of these devices used nicotine salts.
Vapes are a great way to transition off of regular cigarettes. Smoking is bad for your teeth and vaping is safer than smoking traditional cigs. The following list of juices is our current best selling juices in 2019. We have arranged them by category for your convenience.
Best fruit nicotine salt flavors
Let's start with our best selling fruity flavors. Fruit flavors are a crowd favorite because of how accurately the flavor resembles the actual fruit. Vape companies are very good at making a blackberry or blueberry vape taste like berries as opposed to some dessert flavors where the taste is subjective. For example, out of all the donut flavors we've tried, the only one that we really enjoyed was from Mad Hatter.

Best Dessert nicotine salt flavors

What are nicotine salt e-juices?
Freebase nicotine is the standard type of nicotine that is used in traditional variable voltage box mods and sub ohm tanks. The average nicotine range for freebase vape juices range from 0mg - 12mg. Freebase nicotine juices have been used as long as vaping has been a thing.
Nicotine salt is a form of nicotine found in the leaf tobacco. They allow vapers to get higher concentrations of nicotine without a harsher throat hit. It's common to see nic salt e-liquids juices ranging from 30mg - 50mg as opposed to traditional nicotine e-liquids which range from 0mg - 12mg. This is because nic salt juices contain benzoic acid.
What is benzoic acid?
Benzoic acid is used in all nic salt e-juice. It lowers the pH level and therefore makes the vaping experience smoother. Benzoic acid allows more nicotine to be added. If benzoic acid was not present, it would be impossible to vape a 30mg juice because it would be extremely harsh.
Characteristics of benzoic acid
- Allows salt nic juice to be vaporized at a lower temperature
- Lowers the pH level resulting in a smoother hit
- Allows nicotine salt to be absorbed as easily as freebase nicotine
Freebase nicotine versus nic salt
The main difference between the two types is this: freebase does not contain benzoic acid while nic salt juices do. It's important to distinguish the two as each type is meant for different types of vape devices. This is why both types have extremely different nicotine strengths.
Characteristics of freebase nic:
- Lower mg range (0mg - 12mg)
- Used in stronger devices
- Can produce large clouds
Characteristics of nic salts:
- Higher mg range (30mg - 50mg)
- Contains benzoic acid
- Each hit feels like a cigarette
- Used in small compact devices
- Less vapor output
