Nicotine Strength Calculator

What Nicotine Strength Should I Vape?

If you’re looking to quit smoking and make the switch to vaping, you’re no doubt curious about nicotine strength, having wondered about how much nicotine is in a cigarette, or asked yourself: what nicotine strength should I vape?

Luckily, we’ve made a simple nicotine strength calculator for any smokers who want to find the right e-liquid strength.

As you can see in the table, we have separated nicotine strength into four categories. Admittedly, there isn’t an exact science to this, but we think that makes it easier. All that’s really required is a bit of honest self-reflection on your part, and being realistic about how much you actually smoke.

If you smoke at least half a pack of cigarettes a day, you’ll want a vape with a high nicotine strength. As we move down the scale, it’s straightforward enough: the less you smoke, the lower the amount of nicotine you’ll need. A general rule of thumb would be:

●Heavy smoker (≥10 a day): high nicotine (≥18mg)
●Medium smoker (≤10 a day): medium nicotine (≥10mg)
●Light smoker (1-2 a day): low nicotine (≤6mg)
●Occasional/social smoker (≤2 a week): very low nicotine (≤3mg)

If you have been avid vaper and are fully aware of the nicotine level you need but want to get an understanding of how many nicotine shots to use in your e-liquids then head over to our Nicotine Shot Calculator instead.
