“James Anderson and thevapegeneration”

About 13% of American adults have tried an e cigarette at some point in their lives. This is according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A typical e cigarette contains ingredients such as nicotine, e liquid flavoring agents, propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) also commonly known as PG VG . Additionally, some ecigs also contain distilled water, which is largely used to dilute the eliquid. Below is some more information about PG and VG eliquid ingredients..

Propylene glycol

At room temperature, propylene glycol is a hygroscopic, odorless, colorless, and syrupy substance. It is widely used in the manufacture of food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic products. It is also used to generate artificial smoke. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), PG is “generally recognized as safe,” meaning it is safe for human consumption or use. After ingestion, it breaks down in the body within 48 hours. Nevertheless, continuous exposure to PG can cause skin, eye, oral, and nasal irritation, states the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR).

Vegetable Glycerin

Vegetable glycerin is a naturally occurring polyol compound found in many lipids. Similar to PG, VG is colorless, odorless, non-toxic and a viscous substance at room temperature. Furthermore, it has a sweet taste and it is widely used in the food and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries as a sweetener and humectant. VG is obtained from plants in the form of triglycerides that are further processed to produce glycerin. Food grade vegetable glycerin is usually 99.7% pure.

PG VG use in E-Liquids

Propylene glycol is used in e-liquids for various reasons. Firstly, it is used to produce the distinctive “throat hit” that many smokers desire. Moreover, since it is less viscous than VG, it is easier to handle in terms of refilling e cigarettes. On the other hand, vegetable glycerin is mostly used to flavor e-liquids because of its sweet taste. However, VG is more viscous than PG, meaning it could generate gunk and clog e cigarette parts. For instance, wicks in e cigarette devices absorb PG much faster than VG (due to its low density). This translates to easier cleaning and maintenance of e cig parts such as atomizers. It also extends the lifetime of e cigarette devices. Finally, it is worth noting that e liquid may be based on VG, PG, or both ingredients.

PG VG E-Liquid Mixtures

Many e-liquid mixtures available on the market today contain varying amounts of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerol. However, e-liquids with both ingredients generally have better flavor intensity, throat hit, and vapor density depending on the formulation ratio. Common formulation ratios include 50/50, 70/30, and 60/40. Additionally, some manufacturers allow consumers to customize their e-liquids. For instance, to attain a sweeter flavor, manufacturers use a ratio that contains more vegetable glycerol than propylene glycerol. If you crave a product that can deliver a stronger “throat hit,” go for one that has more PG than VG. However, varying PG and VG formulations affect e-liquid pH levels substantially. This is because both propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are alkaline. For this reason, products that contain both ingredients are likely to be alkaline. All in all, it advisable to keep pH levels within the 6 to 8 range in order to maintain product flavor and improve its lifetime as well.

Carcinogens Found In Cigarettes

Cigarette smoke contains more than 7,000 chemical compounds, including more than 70 carcinogenic compounds, the American Cancer Society (ACS) reports. Known carcinogens found in regular cigarettes include arsenic, cadmium, benzene, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, furan, lead, beryllium, hydrazine, isoprene, and vinyl chloride. In addition, regular cigarettes contain nicotine at far higher levels than electronic cigarettes. The nicotine level in e cigs ranges from 0 mg/ml (none) to 25 mg/ml (high), meaning you can purchase e-liquid with no or minimal amounts of nicotine. In comparison, a study published in the journal Addiction & Health found that the amount of nicotine in traditional cigarettes ranges from a low of 6.17 mg/ml to a high of 50.89 mg/ml.


Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are major ingredients in e-liquid. The latter is mostly used for flavoring e cigarettes while the former is used to generate throat hit. The FDA has designated both ingredients safe for human consumption. These aspects make e-liquid safer than traditional cigarettes which contain tens of carcinogenic compounds including arsenic, vinyl chloride and lead.

Tutorial: Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice

Note: local Reaver’s VapE-Liquids and Our Preferred Vendors have been added and updated to suit our local market and availabilities…

the content below is posted Courtesy of Author: MistHub – Published: and is supplied for information purposes only:

Many beginners and even some of more experienced vapers still confuse and are unsure about the differences between Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) e-juice. To help you understand better and learn some background information, pros and cons, and differences we created this tutorial. First things first, lets start with some background and terminology. The term PG is an abbreviation for Propylene Glycol, and the term VG comes from Vegetable Glycerin. Typical e-juice or e-liquid contains four ingredients. These ingredients are Propylene Glycol (PG) or Vegetable Glycerin (VG), water, flavoring, and nicotine. In many cases manufacturers of e-juice mix PG and VG to get benefits of both ingredients. To better understand the differences between the properties of PG and VG juices, we will compare 100% Propylene Glycol e-juice to 100% Vegetable Glycerin. At the end of the tutorial we will touch on mixtures of both types of ingredients, but for now lets focus on pure Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice.

Be sure to check our available range of Reaver’s VapE-Liquids and also available from Vape ClubThe Vape Hub – Boksburg, Tasty Clouds Vape Co in Alberton, Tandoor Lounge in Witbank and from the Vapetique in Brakpan.

Background on Propylene Glycol (PG)

Propylene Glycol is an organic compound produced from Propylene Oxide. It is colorless, nearly odorless, and retains low viscosity. Food grade Propylene Glycol is recognized safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The main applications for Propylene Glycol are solvents, humectants, preservatives in food, tobacco products, pharmaceutical products, and of course e-juice.

Background on Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Vegetable Glycerin is an all natural liquid generally extracted from plant oils, in particular, soy, coconut oil, and palm oil. It is typically clear with little hint of color, odorless, in some cases sweet, and relatively viscous. Like Propylene Glycol it is considered safe by he U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The main applications of Vegetable Glycerin are cosmetics products, food production, and e-juice.

Vape Tutorial Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice

Overview of Propylene Glycol (PG) E-juice

Propylene Glycol (PG) is the more popular e-liquid base, for many reasons. To start, it is less viscous than Vegetable Glycerin and easier to handle when (re)filling your atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer. If you are unfamiliar with different types of e-liquid delivery devices be sure to check out our the up coming Tutorial on: Atomizer vs Cartomizer vs Clearomizer. Another benefit of low viscosity is coil build up or gunk which accumulates over time. Propylene Glycol (PG) has low density which means you will get less gunk when compared to Vegetable Glycerin (VG). Furthermore, it is absorbed much faster by wick material and polyfill fabric, which means that you can start vaping faster. Since Propylene Glycol is tasteless and odorless there is little or no flavor distortion. In fact PG-based e-juices produce highest flavor intensity and throat hit of the two substances. Also vapor feels warmer since it takes less time and power for Propylene Glycol to reach the level of vaporization. The negative aspects of PG-based are rare cases of allergic reaction, but we will go in more details about safety and health issues further down in the tutorial. Also, Propylene Glycol (PG) e-juices produce less denser vapor, which is considered by many a con.

Overview of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice

Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is less popular when compared to Propylene Glycol (PG) base. It has much higher viscosity, which makes it a perfect base for vapers who love a thicker and higher density vapor cloud. It is easier on your throat which means it delivers less throat hit. Unlike PG base, Vegetable Glycerin contains preexisting flavor and sweetness. This means that in many cases the added flavoring will be diluted and final product (e-liquid) will be sweeter. When comparing Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juices in terms of flavor intensity, Vegetable Glycerin (VG) tends to deliver duller flavors. Another negative aspect of VG base is gunk residue, because of high density and consistency of VG you will notice faster build up around your coil and inside walls of your e-juice delivery device. Furthermore, higher viscosity of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) typically requires more power and longer time to achieve optimal vaping temperature. When using in devices that employ polyfill and wick materials, allow for additional time after refilling for e-juice to be absorbed before starting to vape.

Mixing Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

Most of the manufactures of e-juices today mix both PG and VG together to retain positive properties of both substances. Different manufacturers have different proportions but typically you would see 50/50, 60/40 or 70/30 ratios of Propylene Glycol (PG) to Vegetable Glycerin (VG). By combining the two substances you achieve a balance in terms of flavor intensity, throat hit, and vapor density. If you still unsure about Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice, different ratios of mixed PG and VG is the best way to understand which is more preferable and enjoyable for you.

Safety and Health Issues for Propylene Glycol (PG) vs. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) E-juice

Both Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) are considered safe and acceptable substance to be ingested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In fact both substances are part of many types of food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. That said, there are rare cases of minor allergic reaction to Propylene Glycol (PG). Typical allergic reaction consists of skin irritation or rash, and/or minor throat inflammation. In most cases people who are allergic to Propylene Glycol (PG) already know that since it is used in many foods and day-to-day products.

However, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms when vaping PG-based e-juice, stop immediately, allow for sufficient time for your body to recover, and switch to VG-based e-juice.

Uwell Rafale X Neutral Post RDA

available from VapeClub @ R 450.00

The Uwell Rafale X RDA features the first neutral post build deck on today’s market, greatly expanding build configuration possibilities due to it’s unique design in which the positive and negative posts are located across the deck while the neutral post essentially acts as a way to secure leads and carry current. The platform of the Rafale X is geared towards high level performance, with a 24mm diameter coupled with two airflow settings. The maximum airflow settings is arranged in a cluster with the two bottom airslots measuring 2mm by 3.5mm and the top airslot measuring 4mm and 3mm at it’s widest point. In it’s flavor setting, airflow is restricted down to 30%, catering to lower powered dual coil builds. The build deck of the Rafale X introduces a new concept into rebuildable atomizers, a dual terminal neutral post which acts as a carrier of conductivity from the positive and negative posts positioned at either end of the deck. This innovative feature enables an incredible increase in heating element surface area while maintaining resistance, essentially allowing a user to run a serial dual coil configuration with the resistance of just one of those coils. Since this effectively allows resistance to remain within safe working limits of widely utilized devices, when properly configured, the user can potentially drive extremely high wattage through the system and heat a much larger surface area of heating element.

The Rafale X can also be run in a standard two post configuration, as the neutral post can be removed, freeing up deck space dramatically. The Uwell also features a proprietary Anti Spitback Drip Tip design that redirects airflow from the chamber in a spiral, practically eliminating spitback issues. The ASB Drip Tip can also be removed and the Rafale X can be utilized in pure cloud chasing mode, with a drip tip bore that measures a staggering 14mm in diameter. With possibly the most innovative feature introduced in rebuildable dripping atomizers in recent history, the Uwell Rafale X Neutral Post RDA is set to establish itself as one of the premiere building platforms in the industry.

Battery: “Do’s and Don’ts” other information and associated considerations

Vape Blog on Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium Polymer (Li Po) type of batteries:

Supplied for information purposes courtesy of: Martin Do Couto at Seriously Solar (Pty) Ltd:

The detail supplied below and associated recommendations are supplied to assist with getting optimal performance out of your Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium Polymer (Li Po) type batteries. Each type of battery has it’s unique needs that need to be met to obtain reliable service and acceptable battery life. Due to the nature of the specific application I have concentrated specifically on the Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium Polymer (Li Po) type of battery.

For the record, there is such a thing as a real lithium-polymer (Li Po) battery, which uses a polymer as the electrolyte in the battery instead of other standard liquid electrolytes, these  Lipolymer batteries offer slightly higher specific energy and can be made thinner than conventional Liion, unfortunately the associated manufacturing costs are reported to be higher by between 10–30 percent.

What about lithium-polymer batteries? The associated enlightening content in “Lithium Polymer vs Lithium-Ion batteries: What’s the deal?” is supplied courtesy of Scott Orgin and his Scottie’s Tech.Info and

Lithium Polymer vs Lithium-Ion batteries: What’s the deal?

This is where it gets interesting. It turns out that what marketing departments are calling “Lithium-polymer batteries” are actually “Lithium-ion polymer” batteries.

What the heck does that mean?

In short, it means that so-called “lithium-polymer” batteries are almost exactly the same as lithium-ion batteries, but they are instead contained in a flexible polymer casing. It’s basically just a repackaged lithium-ion battery but there is another difference according to

Now, you may get longer battery life with your fancy E-Cigarette device with its “fancy” not-lithium-polymer battery, but that’s primarily due to the flexible format and associated designs that allows the manufacturer to stuff more battery cells into the device.

That’s pretty much all there is to it. If you remove the relatively voluminous plastic case with standard lithium-ion cells inside, and you instead stick flat, flexible lithium-ion polymer cells in the same amount of space, you get more power to play with in the same volume – but the basic battery technology itself is the same: lithium-ion. This is what they call “lithium-polymer” these days.

So, if you ever have two choices for purchasing any associated gizmo, and one has a lithium-ion battery and the other has a lithium-polymer, don’t worry: As far as you’re concerned, it’s all the same thing, but in a different package.

Battery: “Do’s and Don’ts” other information and associated considerations

The specific points below summarizes the needs and advises on the recommended proper handling of Li-ion and Li-Po battery types.

Optimal handling will not always be practical in real life. Deviations from the recommended ideal are acceptable but will tend to lower the life expectancy of any battery or battery cluster or bank arrangement to some degree. (With exposure to heat, being the main culprit.)

Lithium Ion  (Li-ion) and Lithium Polymer are typically used in:

E-Cigarette Devices, Cell Phones, Laptops, Video Camera’s etc.

Charging Do’s and Don’ts:

Do: charge this battery often. Batteries last longer with partial rather than full discharges

Don’t: use if pack gets very hot during charge cycle, check charger or device if this occurs

Charging Methods:

Constant Voltage to 4.20V/cell (typical). No trickle-charge when full. Li-ion may remain in the charger (no memory). Battery must remain cool.

No fast charge possible. Rapid Charge = 3 Hours


Avoid full cycle because of wear. 80% depth-of-discharge recommended. Re-charge more often. Avoid Full discharge.

Low voltage may cut off safety circuit.

Servicing Requirements:

No Maintenance needed. Loses capacity due to aging whether used or not.


Store at 40% charge in a cool place. (40% state-of-charge read 3.75-3.80V/cell at open terminal.) Do not store at full charge and at warm temperatures because of accelerated aging.


Should be recycled. Low volume household Li-ion may be disposed.

Atomizer’s Presentation:

Augvape Merlin Mini Two Post RTA

available at R 440.00 from Vape Club

Available in either a Black or Stainless finish (refer to pictures below).

Augvape’s Merlin Mini RTA is possibly one of the most well balanced platforms available today, providing excellent flexibility by including both single and dual coil build deck bases alongside a quality compact chassis that delivers both exceptional flavor and vapor production.

The Merlin Mini measures 24mm in diameter and holds a maximum capacity of 2 milliliters which is filled via a threaded top fill system. The Merlin Mini further expands Augvape’s original Merlin platform that focused on extensive flavor orientated output, including three internal airflow settings adjusted through the innovative threaded airflow condenser system.

The single coil build deck features a two post design with a single 2mm by 2mm terminal integrated within each post. The aforementioned airflow can be adjusted to three distinct settings, ranging from mouth to lung and flavor centric 1.5mm and 2mm bores, to a more airflow friendly 4.5mm full bore. The Merlin Mini also includes a dual coil deck, featuring two 2mm by 2.5mm terminals integrated into each post that allow for more vapor orientated configurations. Dual 12mm by 2mm adjustable airslots located around the base of the Merlin Mini feed the entire system, providing ample airflow for either build deck. Affordable, versatile, and machined with excellent precision, Augvape’s Merlin Mini Two Post Flavor RTA bridges the gap between a full featured flavor atomizer and a performance system within a compact form factor.
