Vape liquid is another term for e-liquid or vape juice. E-Liquid/vape juice contains flavourings, nicotine, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine and, when heated up in a vape device, produces a vapour that resembles smoke. Vape juice is also known as e-juice.
The majority of vape liquid we sell is produced right here in the UK.
Vape juice comes in a number of different forms.
10ml E-Liquid: This is the maximum size allowed for nicotine containing e-liquids. 10ml carry a range of nicotine levels, ranging from 0mg (0%) to 20mg (2%).
Nicotine salts: Nicotine salts use the natural form of nicotine found in the tobacco leaf, and carry a smoother hit than regular 10ml e-liquids.
Short-fills: Short-fills are larger bottles of e-liquid, which do not contain nicotine. They have space at the top of the bottle which allows you to add nicotine (in the form of nicotine shots).
Nicotine shots: Designed for use with shortfills, these are unflavoured bottles of e-liquid which contain nicotine.
Concentrates: These are concentrated bottles of flavour which are designed for use with unflavoured diluents.
Vape juice come with different VG:PG ratios. The most common are VG:PG 50:50 and VG:PG 70:30 ratio. VG:PG ratios in the range of 40:60 and 50:50 are better for a tight, restricted vape similar to smoking, while VG:PG ratios of 70:30 or 80:20 are better for more advanced vapers who prefer an open, airy vape with lots of vapour.

To our website you look under 18.
So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.
You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.
Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.
On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!
Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).
(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )
How your data is used
We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)
Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.
Why do we check age?
As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.
This is against both our company policy and the law.
And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.
For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.
Your privacy is important to us, and your personal information should remain just that - personal.
See the little green lock in the search bar? That’s our security certificate (SSL or secure socket layer to be precise). It encrypts all the information you enter so that no-one else can see it.
Information you provide for age verification is sent securely to Experian and no details of the checks are stored in our system. Ever.
If you have any concerns, please call our friendly customer services team on 01792 852843 (Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm).
