Can I use freebase vape juice to refill my pod system?
Freebase nicotine has a higher pH level, this affects its alkalinity. In other words, freebase vape juices have a slightly harsher nicotine taste than nicotine salts. The higher the nicotine content, the more likely you are to taste the peppery flavor of nicotine. Nic salts on the hand, contains benzoic acid which reduces its alkalinity to reportedly provide a smoother hit and it helps vaporize nicotine at lower temperatures. It's therefore important to remember that nic salts are designed to be used in low wattage devices, like pod systems.
- Lower freebase nicotine juices may not provide the same hit as the salt nics you are used to.
- Freebase juices higher in nicotine, when vaped in a pod system, may results in an unpleasant flavor.
- You may need to more frequently replace/change your pod when using a stronger freebase nic blend.
