Best PG-Based Cheap E-Juice
Wildfire by Propaganda
The first item on our list of the best cheap e-juices is Wildfire by Propaganda. This flavor has been around for a while now and is a long-time favorite of numerous vapers. Why? Simply because it’s really good.
Now, if you are into pastry flavors, you are definitely going to love Wildfire. It tastes like almond cookies, with a hint of vanilla and some nut flavor in the background. Almond isn’t overpowering here and reveals itself more on the exhale, while each inhale tastes like freshly baked pastry. To be honest, this is the best cookie vape I’ve tried so far.
Like everything in vaping, e-juices are every person’s individual choice. Someone likes fresh flavors, others prefer sweet ones. Thankfully, there are thousands of options on the market these days
In terms of performance, this affordable e-juice has the potential to surprise you. Despite being very PG concentrated, it allows for large thick clouds (if your vaping device is suitable for those as well). The inhales and exhales are smooth, but you definitely get a hard throat hit. It’s not harsh but noticeable.
Best VG-Based Cheap E-Juice
Fresh Squeeze by Element
The next contestant for the right to be called the best cheap e-juice is this e-liquid by Element, which belongs to their special dripping series and has a very rich and deep orange flavor.
Now, the first thing I want to note about this inexpensive e-juice is that it is VG-based. It is super thick and has a rather concentrated flavor, which makes it perfect for dripping.
It gets better:
The pipette is super comfortable to use and features a narrow, curved tip, which is super handy when it comes to dripping.
And here’s the kicker:
This e-liquid allows for huge, thick clouds. Good news for my fellow cloud chasers!
In terms of flavor, this is one of the strongest orange vape juices I’ve tried. I don’t think it is suitable to be vaped on all day long since it is very rich. However, if you swap it with some other flavor from time to time, you won’t get tired of it. On the inhale, you get that fresh, bitter-sweet orange scent. It feels almost like a sour orange candy. The exhales, however, taste sweeter, like a glass of fresh orange juice. This e-liquid is fresh and bright, reminding you of a warm summer day.
Top-Rated Refreshing Cheap Vape Juice
Winter Ice by C&C Apothecary
Another item on our list that has the right to be called the best cheap e-juice is this liquid by C&C Apothecary. Winter Ice is super refreshing, minty cold, and crisp. And paired with the high-quality nicotine, it can take your vaping experience to the new level.
Let me just tell you:
This e-juice is strong.
It belongs to that heavy-duty category when you get punched with the flavor if vaping on higher wattages and temperatures. However, if you don’t mind turning down the settings of your vaping device (or if you usually vape on medium or low), you are definitely going to enjoy this fresh, crispy, wintery flavor.
What you can expect from this budget e-juice is strong inhales, smoot exhales, and good vapor production. When inhaling, you feel that menthol and maybe a hint of something eucalypt-like. The exhale is a bit sweeter and softer. This e-liquid is great for people who appreciate fresh, minty flavors.
Best Candy Flavor Cheap Vape Juice
Bubble Pop Remixed by Motley Brew
To be honest with you, it is hard to find a good candy vape juice. They are either too sweet or not sweet enough. However, Motley Brew managed to find that golden middle. Their Bobble Pop deserves to be among other best cheap e-juices for a reason.
Finding the best e-juice will take you quite some time and a lot of testing
This e-juice is perfect for an all-day vape. It isn’t overwhelmingly sweet but can satisfy your cravings for candy. On the inhale, you feel the mix of strawberry and kiwi. And on the exhale, you get that nice watermelon scent. All those notes combine into a rich bubble gum flavor.
Now, this e-juice won’t give you a strong throat hit. The draw is very smooth and nice. Bubble Pop allows for a good vapor production and can be used on both medium and high wattages.
Best Cheap E-Liquid Overall
FAR Candy Punch by Element
- Bottles available: 10 ml, 20 ml, 60 ml, 100 ml
- Nicotine levels available: 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18 mg
- Can pick either a 50/50 VG/PG ratio or 75% VG and 25% PG
- Flavor: Juicy Rainbow Candy
The next item on our list of the best cheap e-liquids is this colorful bottle of FAR Candy Punch vape juice by Element. Again, guys at Element clearly know how to produce great, high-quality e-liquids priced very reasonably.
Now, the first thing that I was sold on was the number of options I had when purchasing this juice. You can pick different nicotine strength levels and have 4 size options.
It gets better:
You can also choose the VG/PG ratio according to your preferences!
If you want a hard hit and a moderate amount of vapor, you can go with the 50/50 ratio. However, if you are a fan of dripping or want huge thick clouds, you can get yourself a bottle of 75% VG-based juice.
PG-concentrated juices are suitable for people who enjoy a hard throat hit
As for the flavor, it’s not going to disappoint you, trust me. Especially if you have a sweet tooth like I do. This affordable e-juice has a very strong, distinct flavor. It is sweet and may remind you of your childhood, especially those days after Halloween when you got to eat all the candy you’ve earned. This flavor doesn’t really have a certain dominant, central note. It just tastes and smells like candy in general. But who doesn’t like candy, right?
Bites Vanilla Caramel Swirl by VaporFi
Another contestant to be called the best vape juice is this item by Vaporfi. When trying it for the first time, you will want to vape it all day, I guarantee.
First off, the flavor. On the inhale, you get that sweet vanilla ice cream taste. It is rich but not overpowering. On the exhale, you can feel the deep flavor of brown caramel and a hint of cream. In this ensemble, vanilla isn’t the strongest note, but it serves to enhance other flavors.
This e-juice allows for an excellent vapor production. It offers a super smooth draw even when you’re vaping on the one with nicotine in it. By the way, you can definitely feel the nicotine. Its flavor is rich and crisp but doesn’t hit the throat too hard. This e-juice is perfect for an all-day vape. It is not overwhelming and won’t tire you.
Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream by Vaporfi
I don’t know about you, but I love strawberries. And whenever I have a craving for a strawberry dessert, this budget e-juice by Vaporfi becomes a fast solution to my problem. It is sweet, creamy, and simply delicious.
Now, this juice is perfect for vaping all day long. It isn’t too sweet but tastes rich and dense. On the inhale, you feel that dulcet ice cream with a hint of strawberry. The exhale revels the sweet crumble cake flavor backed up with some more strawberries. The draw is very smooth and doesn’t hit you hard.
This e-liquid is great for huge clouds and a beautiful, thick vapor. You can vape all day on it and you won’t feel tired of this juice, I promise. It is thick and reveals the flavor better when dripping. However, using it in a tank shows great results as well.
Grand Reserve Cloud Candy by Vaporfi
The last item on our list of the best budget e-juices is another liquid by Vaporfi. What can I say? They really know how to make excellent e-juices.
VG-based e-liquids are perfect for cloud chasing
This one, again, is perfect for vaping all day. It isn’t too sweet, thanks to those lemon and pomegranate notes, but sweet enough to remind you of your favorite candy. The draw is very smooth even with nicotine. This juice, being a VG-based one, allows for an excellent vapor production and huge, flavorful clouds.
You get a distinct Gummy Bear taste on the inhale, which is backed up by a hint of cotton candy. On the exhale, you feel those lemon and pomegranate notes, which add some freshness to the blend. In general, this juice has a very deep, clean taste, which can pleasantly surprise you.
Things You Should Know About E-Liquids
Here’s the deal:
Even if you already have some experience in vaping, there might be things you still don’t know.
Some important things.
So, let’s look at some facts about e-juices before running to the nearest store to get a bottle of the most flavorful one:
- The typical ingredients of numerous e-liquids include Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, distilled water, alcohol, flavorings, nicotine, and extracts.
- The higher PG concentration, the harder throat hit you will experience.
- VG-based juices allow for an excellent flavor production and for a very smooth draw.
- The main difference between cheap and expensive e-liquids isn’t in the primary ingredients (PG and VG). It’s in the quality of nicotine, packaging, and the type of flavoring used.
When trying to choose the nicotine level, keep in mind that there are juices with no nicotine in them. Who knows, maybe you’ll enjoy them just as much
- Some vape juices require steeping. This allows them to develop a deeper and brighter flavor (just like when you let a good wine age).
- Your e-juice may become darker with time. This happens because of the nicotine oxidation.
- It’s best to store your liquid away from the heat sources and light.
Choosing the Nicotine Level
You already know what flavor you would like to try, right? Now, it’s time to find the perfect nicotine level for you:
- 0%. This is the best option for people who want to quit smoking and get rid of their nicotine addiction but still crave for that ritual of inhaling and exhaling smoke/vapor.
- 6 mg. It’s one of the lightest and the most common levels on the market. It is a bit weaker than in a regular cigarette.
- 12 mg. This is an ideal option for people who used to smoke but now want to switch to vaping without a strong need for nicotine.
- 18 mg. This is the medium level of nicotine, suitable for ex-smokers or people who enjoy the nicotine taste in their vapes.
- 24 mg. One of the strongest e-juices on the market, ideal for heavy smokers who used to smoke around one pack every day.
- 36 mg. This is the heaviest nicotine concentration available these days. It is suitable for very heavy smokers (the ones that used to smoke two or more packs a day).
If you’re anything like me, you probably also have a ton of e-juices. And no one is blaming you. There are just too many good ones, so we are on a quest to try them all and find the absolute best ones.
The ones I’ve shown you today are among my favorites now. I felt very happy when I was testing them. And the one vape juice that I enjoyed the most was the Bites Vanilla Caramel Swirl by VaporFi. I could vape on it all day every day. Seriously, that sweet ice cream with rich, golden-brown caramel and notes of vanilla really buy me over. This juice has a smooth, deep flavor and performs extremely well. I would recommend it to all my vaping friends. It’s just too good not to share it.
So do you prefer to buy budget e-juices or you think it’s better and cheaper to make your own? Fell free to leave a comment below.
