    When To Count E-liquids Out

    When To Count E-liquids Out

    There comes a point in time when you may have noticed that your bottle of e-liquid has expired and has come to the end of its use, but is it the really the end of it's time? This debate comes time and time again if whether vaping with an e-liquid that is expired can cause major harm to the person who is vaping it or whether they are in the clear and can keep using the expired e-liquid. The best answer is to learn about all the factors that come into play if you're considering vaping with an expired e-liquid. At the end of the day, it is your own choice.

    Factors
    Some things to take into consideration when deciding to use expired e-liquids is that the expiration date is based off the VG, PG, and nicotine. It is expected to last 1-2 years if it is stored correctly. VG is a much more thicker solution, in comparison to PG. It has a slower absorption rate for wicks. VG also has a tad sweet taste. In contrast, PG has a runny consistency. It is a lot thinner than VG, and is easily absorbed by the cotton fabric inside wick tanks. Other things to consider is the different flavors that are used in e-liquids. Some of the flavorings may spoil sooner than others. Think of it as an food item you purchase from the store with an expiration date. If your food where to expire, you would smell it to make sure it didn't have a foul odor, and if it didn't you might take a small sample to make sure it tastes alright. The same thing goes for the e-liquids, you can smell if the flavoring in it has gone bad, that is your cue to throw it out!

    Shelf Life
    Flavors that are able to sit on a shelf may last up to a few years. It all depends on how they were stored on the shelf though. Many flavors that are exposed to heat and light will more than likely get spoiled sooner than the others. It just depends on the flavor and the type of bottle it is in. Most can last to at least up to two years though. As I said previously, the ultimate decision comes from yourself. Only you can be the prime decision maker if something doesn't look nor smell right.

    Closing Remarks
    It's very uncommon that expired e-liquids will cause serious harm if you decide to vape them. You will not be faced with any serious threats or dangers. The best choice is to go by what the expiration date says. If it's expired and you are able to inspect it and everything seems good, then give it a go. Otherwise don't risk it, it will probably leave a foul taste in your mouth and you'll be bitter that you just tried to vape a spoiled expired e-liquid. Overall, it is a personal decision, nobody can make you do anything you don't want to do.
