High VG vs High PG

August 01, 2016

We get a lot of people who come into the store asking us about High Vegetable Glycerine (VG) and High Propylene Glycol (PG) liquids.


In short

High VG = More Vapour and thicker liquid

High PG = More throat hit and thinner liquid

50/50 ratio = Best of both worlds


Most e-juices come in 50/50 ratio, although if you are looking for a higher VG version of anything 50/50 you can purchase a doubler and add VG to it to make it a 75 VG / PG ratio.

The thing to remember when looking at High VG juices is can your coil handle it. Most coils under 0.5 ohm are ok with higher VG juices as they heat at a higher temperature which VG needs to vapourise. Any coil over a 0.5 we recommend would be more suited to a 60 VG / 40 PG ratio at the very maximum as the thicker liquids take more power and time to heat, which will burn out a higher ohm coil quicker.

On the flip side to this some people want more of a throat hit so we recommend no more than a 60 PG / 40VG ratio because if your liquid is too thin it can leak through the bottom of your tank (if it is bottom fill).
