Choosing nicotine for an e-cigarette

Choosing nicotine for an e-cigarette

Although it is nice to have a choice, it can be difficult to determine the optimal nicotine content for e-cigarettes. In the Netherlands you can order e-liquids with a nicotine content between 0 mg and 18 mg. On this page we provide a user profile for each of the default values to make the choice easier. Keep in mind that you can not simply compare the content in a normal cigarette and an e-cigarette.


Note: Nicotine is an addictive substance. If you have not smoked before, it is unwise to use e-liquid with nicotine.


How can you choose the nicotine content?


0 mg nicotine: If you only want to vaporize the aroma, 0 mg nicotine is for you. You then run no risk of a nicotine addiction. It is also the final step in reducing a nicotine addiction.

3 mg nicotine: If the aroma is important, but you still need a bit of nicotine, 3 mg can offer a solution. You feel less stimulation in your throat at lower nicotine levels. A long-term smoker runs the risk of quickly switching to cigarettes again.

6 mg nicotine: This amount of nicotine corresponds to light cigarettes, for smokers of normal cigarettes 6 mg is probably too low. In a sub-Ohm e-cigarette type, this is the maximum value.

12 mg nicotine: This is the ideal value for smokers of normal cigarettes, you feel a strong stimulus in the throat. You now clearly notice the influence of nicotine on the flavor of the e-liquid.

18 mg nicotine: This is the heaviest value, and is therefore suitable for the switchers who smoke a lot. These products are intended for MTL e-cigarettes and not for DTL models.


Electric vaping was originally developed for people who want to stop smoking cigarettes. If you have not smoked before, the use of nicotine is strongly advised against because it is an addictive substance.
