Nicotine salt formulation e-liquids are taking over the vape market, along side smaller vape devices. At Vapebox we carry the best and most popular salt nicotine e-liquids and pod devices in the market. These products are excellent for new or avid vapers that are trying to quit smoking cigarettes because salt nic e-liquids are typically higher in nicotine strength and are used with low wattage devices like pod systems.
What is Salt Nicotine?
The best way to explain nicotine salt is by comparing it to freebase nicotine. There's a lot of science behind this, but we will keep it as simple as possible. Freebase nicotine is nicotine in its purest form and has a higher pH level which leads to increased alkalinity. Higher alkaline causes a harsher throat hit, so it leads vapers to vape less.
Nicotine salt is the natural state that nicotine is in while in tobacco leaves. The name nicotine salt actually comes from the reaction caused when all the impurities found in freebase nicotine are removed, this lowers the pH level and provides for a less harsh throat hit and a smoother vape experience. E-liquid companies use benzoic acid to use salt nic as a means to make 50mg nicotine tolerable. The benzoic acid helps nicotine salt vaporize at lower temperatures and it also helps lower the pH levels for a smoother throat hit. Benzoic acid also causes a chemical reaction that makes the nicotine easier to absorb. So vapers can vape comfortable at high nicotine levels like 50mg.
What Device do you Vape Salt Nicotine With?
As we discussed, nic salt is typically higher in nicotine, the nicotine levels normally range from 20mg-50mg. Nic salt e-juices are not meant for sub-ohm vaping due to the high nicotine content. They are meant to be vaped with ultra low wattage devices because of the higher amount of nicotine absorbed and salt nic does not require to be vaporized at high temperatures. Vaping salt e-liquid with a sub-ohm device can really cause damage and make you cough up a lung, so do not attempt that!
Low wattage devices like vape pens or pod systems are perfect for salt e-liquids. Most are compact and sleek, require low maintenance, and are affordable! A few good pod devices for example are the Suorin Air (or any Suorin device), Orion Q Pod Device, Renova Zero Kit, and so many more that can be found in our Vapebox store.
If you want something even more convenient then opt for a pre-filled pod device like Juul, Kwit Stick, Kilo's K1 Device, etc. These devices offer pre-filled replacement pods with 50mg nicotine. E-liquid companies typically have a variety of pre-filled pod flavors, so vapers can try various flavors. It's a good option for someone who doesn't want the hassle of filling up pods constantly.
Benefits of Vaping Salt Nicotine
- Higher Nicotine Levels: Salt nic vape juices are typically crafted with higher nicotine strength which gives vapers an instant nicotine rush. Salt nicotine can benefit people who are trying to quit smoking cigarettes and some say that it effectively fights the craving for cigarettes too.
- Smoother Vape: Regular freebase nicotine e-juices that have high nicotine strengths, from 6-12mg, can be harsh to vape. Nicotine salts are used with low wattage devices that deliver a smoother throat hit regardless of the high nicotine content.

These types of vape devices are easy to use and are more affordable than regular vape devices like mods and atomizers. Most low wattage devices range from $20-30.
