No Flavor, No Problem
Unflavored vape juice is not new. But why are so many going back to basics and vaping flavorless e-juice?
The answers are simple:
Vapers are cleansing their palates
Vapers are saving money too
To be able to appreciate all the subtle flavors of wine, whiskey, and food, experts sip water in between tastings. Unflavored e-liquid achieves the same effect.
The mania that grew up around DIY e-juice made it so that vapers could flavor their concoctions with anything they wanted. Vapers, as well as vape companies, tried to outdo each other by creating the oddest, most unique taste experiences imaginable.
This pioneering spirit led to the creation of such far-fetched e-liquid flavors like pizza, bacon and nacho-flavored e-juices. And since vapers are creatures of variety, they tried as many of them as possible.
Only, trying all those strange flavors overloaded more sensitive taste buds, making it difficult to distinguish between cola e-juice and Red Bull e-juice. Vapers started complaining about not being able to taste anything, let alone e-juice.
The cost-effectiveness of no-flavor vape juice is another reason for its current popularity. It is much less expensive to order a nicotine base, and then mix it with a PG or vegetable glycerin component, instead of always having to order more of your favorite brand.
A typical, 100mg nicotine base can cost anywhere between $6-$8, for a 60ml bottle. The higher the nicotine content, however, the higher the price.
A no-nicotine base costs less than $4 for a 60ml bottle. The liquid nicotine can come already blended with your choice of PG or VG, or you can order them separately, which will set you back another $5 for both.
Prices for e-juice bases vary between vendors, but they are much less than the going prices for the most popular flavored brands. By comparison, a 10ml bottle of flavored e-juice from Halo Cigs starts at $20 and goes up from there if you get a bigger size
