ADV: What makes a great all day vape
There is no right or wrong way to choose an e-liquid but you’ll know when you’ve found a flavour that’s perfect for you. For some people this will be fruity, for others, it will be minty - no matter what flavour is the ‘goldilocks’ blend for you, it will always be known as an all-day-vape.
An all-day-vape (ADV) is pretty self-explanatory - it’s a term for an e-liquid flavour that you can vape all day, whether it be first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening. It’s something you’ll see mentioned a lot on vaping websites and forums but like a lot of things, it’s easier said than done.
When you see an e-liquid described on a vape site as being a ‘great ADV’, it can be a little bit misleading - especially when you don’t like the sound of the flavours in the e-liquid. However, products are often described in this way by vaping brands as they believe it contains the right balance of flavour notes (e.g. sweetness, sharpness, creaminess) to be considered an ADV contender.
Most peoples’ ADVs are balanced flavours. We’re sure that there are some people out there that love vaping a super sweet candy flavour all day long, but most of us prefer e-liquids that are more rounded.
Here are some criteria that we’ve come up with that we think summarises an ADV:
- It’s smooth to inhale
- It’s not overpowering either in vapour production or taste
- It tastes natural and has no chemical aftertaste
- It has the right nicotine level for you
Discovering your all-day-vape is all about experimenting with flavours, strengths and e-liquid brands. For example, you might love the taste of a 12mg nicotine cherry but find it too sweet and strong to vape all day. You could try introducing another flavour (such as menthol) to balance out the sweetness and reducing the nicotine to 6mg.
It can take some time but most people will eventually find a flavour that they can vape throughout the day without getting tired of it. Whilst it can be frustrating switching from flavour to flavour trying to work out what you like, just remember - each flavour that you don’t like is taking you one step closer to finding the ADV for you.
