How many Analog Cigs equal a 10 ML bottle of 11mg?
« on: January 19, 2013, 10:59:44 AM »
I am new to vaping so for me I have heard a 10 ml equals a carton of regular analog cigarettes.... so does 10 ml bottle equal 200 analog cigarettes or is not a falsehood?

hiya Pendragon126, welcome to the forum. You have askled what seems a simple question, but there is no simple answer, it very much depends on what you mean by  "equals", for instance 10ml of 36mg juice has 360mg nicotine in it.... but 10ml of 11mg juice only has 110mg nic and 10ml 18mg juice has 180mg nic (Roughly the same amount as 200 'standard' cigarettes) BUT nicotine is absorbed differently when vaping compared to smoking so there really isn't any direct correlation between the two methods other than the amount of nicotine. For instance I am a fairly heavy vaper and get through 4-5ml of 30-36mg juice a day so roughly 150mg nic a day.... but no way was I smoking anywhere near that much. There are others who smoked quite heavily and find that they can't take higher strength juices so stick with 8mg juice or even less. As far as consumption of juice goes, I believe the 'average' vaper gets through about 2ml of juice a day at their preferred strength, so as a very rough guide 10ml is about 4-5 days worth of juice for most vapers, and that's about a close as you're gonna get to any sort of direct comparison.

StevieD is right... There is no simple answer.

I tried to answer this question myself once. What I came up with was: I smoked a pack a day. Averaged out one smoke per hour. Each cig game me 12 to 15 drags. When I started vaping I limited myself to 4 drags every 20 minutes to simulate the number of drags on a cig.

At the end of the day I went thru about 2ml's of liquid (give or take). Based on that I never exactly determined what my nic level should be. It wouldnt be hard to figure how much I took in a day smoking vs 2ml x nic level. Just as StevieD pointed out.

It's a decent average to say 10ml of 11mg is close to a carton of lights and 10ml of 18 mg would be closer to kings.

Put it this way. If you ate 10 light analogs it would be about the same as eating 0.5ml of 11mg e-juice.
