Best Nicotine Salt Eliquids for Pod Systems

Nicotine Salt E-Liquids and the Pod Mod

After vaping more than 45 different Nicotine Salt E-liquids, a fraction of what’s available today, in various Pod Mods, we were able to finally narrow the count of the Best Nicotine Salt E-Liquids for Pod Mods to 17 (seventeen!). You’ll see one or two flavors are represented by more than one brand, like Mango, but is one thing is certain, Nicotine Salt E-Liquids have improved 1000-fold since the first time we tried them. From fruits to vanilla to milk t0 tobacco, these Nic-salt e-liquids are out of this world. With Pod Mod systems as inexpensive as they are, and the length of time it takes to actually vape your way through a 30mL bottle of Nic-salts, the cost of vaping is going down like never before. If you own a Pod Mod, otherwise known as an Ultra-Portable, these 17 Nicotine Salts E-Liquids are flavors you simply must try.

We would never attempt to declare these particular Nic-salt flavors are the best of the best, there are simply too many different brands and flavors to know that. What we can say is that after spending a month trying several flavors every day, the flavors and brand below stood out well enough to recommend to vapers that are looking for somewhere to start, a way of vaping delicious Nic-salts without wasting money trying everything out there. Consider this more a cheat-sheet, a list of flavors we loved. Flavors that satisfied more than the others, though clearly there must be many, many others out there that deserve to be mentioned as well. We plan to do just that, so stay tuned. For now, these wonderful blends will get you started.

While Nicotine Salt E-Liquids are available in different, though still high, nicotine strengths, if you’re new to this type of vaping, you should begin with lower nicotine strengths, and build up if you need to. These 17 flavors are between 30mg and 50mg of nicotine salt. Go slow….

Best Nicotine Salt Eliquids for Pod Systems

What are Nicotine Salt E-Liquids?

Nicotine Salt, generally known as Nic Salt these days, is a type of processed nicotine used in modern, high-nicotine vape juice. Nicotine salt e-liquid can be more satisfying than regular “freebase” nicotine to hardcore smokers coming over to vaping, and even some experienced vapers looking for a smooth, yet more satisfying nicotine kick.

Nicotine salt e-liquid is easier to inhale than regular freebase eliquid. Its biocompatibility means that the hit from your mod is less harsh on the throat and allows vapers to use higher nicotine e-liquids. Being able to inhale more nicotine with every pull of the mod is what makes nicotine salts more satisfying to some users.

Nicotine salt e-liquid best in low-power, ultra-portable, or pod mod devices, of which there are now hundreds of choices on the market.

Although smoother to inhale and potentially more satisfying, it is important that Nic-salt vapers be careful when vaping strong nicotine salt e-liquid, and to avoid any type of sub-ohm atomizer or high-wattage mod. It’s very easy to take in more nicotine then you should when using Nic-salt e-liquid, so take it slow when you start out, and begin with the lowest level of Nic-salt e-liquid.

Nic salt e-liquid is  similar to freebase e-liquid and comes in a variety of flavors from several brands. The assortment below are by far the best tasting, highest quality Nic-salt e-liquid we’ve used to date. And imagine; this whole pod mod and Nic-salt market is so young the possibilities in the future are limitless.

Nicotine Salt – What it is

Nicotine Salts is the crystallized form of, and when used to create an e-liquid, these salts are dissolved in various VG/PG solutions, depending on the brand, flavor, and preference.

The Nicotine Salts are a ‘more complete’ nicotine molecule and as such is still bound to other organic compounds that are naturally found in tobacco leaves. This forms a substance that is a more stable than freebase nicotine. Freebase nicotine is otherwise known as common nicotine used in e-liquid for years.

Despite the fact that nicotine salts require more heat than freebase nicotine to transform it into inhalable vapor, it is much more concentrated, so low heat devices should be the only way to use nic-salt e-juice.

Our human bodies absorb nicotine salts less efficiently than it does freebase (regular) nicotine, but since the salts are a more concentrated form of nicotine, the tradeoff is negligible. So why use them then? Are there any benefits to nicotine salts over freebase nicotine? Yes, and no. Below are a few of the advantages, or disadvantages, of using nicotine salt e-liquid.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Nicotine Salt E-Liquids

ejuice steals

Fast Absorption: Nicotine salts produced with the correct acids and then vaped in a proper device will deliver nicotine into the bloodstream faster than freebase nicotine. So, for people craving a nicotine fix, this could get them sated faster.

Usage is much lower: We know first-hand that nicotine salt E-liquids, with their higher concentration of nicotine, people do not need to vape as much to get the same nicotine satisfaction. For some people that is a major advantage, to others, less so. I love to vape, and I vape heavily, so nicotine salt eliquid, while satisfying, is much less fun for me.

Longer Lasting E-Liquid: It is the stability of nicotine salts that the vital ingredients for the e-juice to retain its potency far longer than juice made with freebase nicotine. Longer shelf life means you can stock up when nic-salt e-juice goes on sale.

No need to high-wattage mods – A small, ultra-portable, or Pod Mod device will deliver satisfying nicotine results. You won’t get the huge clouds, but the flavor is intense, as is the nicotine satisfaction.

The Worst Thing About Nicotine Salt E-Liquids

Without a doubt, nicotine salt e-liquid is a lot more expensive then freebase nicotine e-juice. That will change as the popularity increases, but for now, we’re back to 30mL bottles for nearly $20. Yes, they will last longer, no doubt, but milliliter for millileter, the cost is much higher.

Why Vape Nicotine Salt E-Liquid?

Why indeed. Honestly, we recommend nic-salts to two types of people; smokers addicted to nicotine, that want the best chance to quit smoking is the foremost type. The other are those that are vaping now, but still find the need to a tobacco cigarette once or more times a day. For most Vapers, we’ve been doing just fine with freebase e-juice and sub-ohm tanks.

Below are some of the very best nicotine-salt e-liquids the staff of Spinfuel VAPE has been using in the many, many, pod mod systems we’re currently reviewing. This new pod mod and nic-salt segment of the vape industry is here to stay, as evidenced by the great pod mods, and now, the awesome tasting nic-salt flavors we were concerned would never arrive.

If nicotine salt e-liquid is something you want to try, if you need that heavy hit of nicotine along with a still-smooth throat hit, this is way to do that. The brands and flavors below are wonderful entries in the nic-salt vape world.

Team Verdict: Solace should definitely deliver their e-liquids for the freebase vapers. Latte would be a huge seller in 3mg or 6mg blends.

Favorite Nicotine Salts for Pod Mods - Conclusion

Please remember that if you’re new to Nicotine Salt E-Liquids, these blends are NOT made to use in Sub-Ohm Tanks. All the above fantastic blends must be vaped in devices made for high-nicotine blends. Nicotine overuse can lead to nausea, headaches, and light-headedness, all lousy things to experience, especially when you expect the opposite.

 

These choices made by our Spinfuel E-Liquid Review Team are not meant to tell you what you should vape, only that of the more than 45 nic-salt flavors we spend a month with, these were by far our favorites. But, there are many more, and many more to come in the future.

 

The Nicotine Salt E-Liquid market is only now taking off, you can expect to see hundreds more in the months to come. We will revisit the Nic-Salt revolution from time to time, and we’ll let you know when we’ve collected a dozen or so great nic-salt creations.

 

Ultra-Portable, or Pod Mod systems are not for everybody, and in fact, the Review Team are fervent supporters or freebase, or regular, e-liquids. Our love for huge clouds, moderate to heavy vaping, means that high-nicotine blends and pod mods will never be our go-to vape gear and e-juice, but for those that need the intense nicotine you get from nic-salts, we’re ready to help guide your journey to the good stuff.
