What are vapes?

Vape, or e-cigarette, is an atomization device that produces vapor for users to inhale through heating up the e-liquid with coils. Today's vape products mainly fall into three categories: mod, pod mod and pod (including the popular disposable pod). Mod: Mod products distinguish themselves from others for a high wattage output, which forms the basis of direct-to-lung (DTL) vaping and big clouds. Coupling with freebase nicotine e-liquid, they can deliver very strong and harsh vaping sensation. Pod: Pods tend to be designed in smaller size. They usually use nicotine salt liquid, which gives mild and mellow throat hit. In most cases, pod systems are fixed at a low wattage output, making it a good option for people favoring mouth-to-lung (MTL) vape. Pod mod: Pod mods, also AIO kits, showcase a perfect blend of pods and mods. Their wattage output is adjustable, although the wattage range is limited. What’s more, users can make a switch between DTL and MTL vape by replacing coils or changing the airflow.

What's the Liquid in a Pod?

MOTI vape pods are mainly prefilled pods. Prefilled pods are filled with e-liquid and can't be refilled. In the market, the ingredients of e-liquid are propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (PG), nicotine, food-grade natural and artificial flavorings, and water. Here we will explain more about the main ingredients (PG/VG/Nicotine) in e-liquid.

What are Propylene Glycol, Vegetal Glycerin, and Nicotine?

Propylene glycol (PG) is a colorless and viscous liquid. PG is a common substance you can see in various food. For example, the liquid sweeteners you use in coffee, ice cream, whipped cream, and even soda. In e-liquid, PG plays the role of carrying nicotine and enables it to be vaporized through an atomizer. Vegetable glycerin (VG) is commonly seen in medicine and food additives. In food, VG is used in cake, chocolate, and some desserts. It can be directly extracted from vegetable oil. Nicotine is an addictive chemical that is abstracted from tobacco leaves and many other nightshade plants, such as potatoes and tomatoes. Nicotine is an addictive substance, yet it is not the nicotine that causes cancer in cigarettes.

VG and PG ratio

You might have noticed that on the label of e-liquid bottles, there is a ratio of VG and PG. The VG/PG ratio largely determines the types of nicotine. There are mainly two kinds of nicotine in the market now: nicotine salt and freebase nicotine. Usually, the VG/PG ratio of nicotine salt ranges from 50/50 to 60/40, and that of freebase nicotine falls into 70/30. Freebase nicotine suits for DTL (direct-to-lung) vaping and nicotine salt suits for MTL (mouth-to-lung) vaping. In MOTI vapes, the VG/PG ratio of our MTL prefilled pods is usually 50/50. Some e-liquids have a 60/40 VG/PG ratio depending on the flavor and product type. For MOTI MEGA disposable vapes, the VG/PG ratio is 70/30 to meet the DTL requirement.
