Have you ever wondered how long the e-liquid you’re vaping lasts? Or what causes e-liquid to change color? With the vaping community expanding every day, these are some of the common questions that the consumers have been asking more frequently.
If you have asked yourself any of these questions you’ve come to the right place. We’ve taken the time to thoroughly explain and provide all the information that you should know about e-liquid to have a safe and satisfactory vaping experience.
How long does e-liquid stay fresh when opened?
A bit of knowledge people who vape tend to be lacking is how long does e-liquid last once opened. E-liquid itself in an airtight sealed container can last up to 2-3 years depending how it is stored. Once the seal is broken, the time it will be good for is roughly 3-6 months.
Keeping your e-liquid in different environments will also affect how long your juice will last. You should always keep your e-liquid out of direct lighting and in places no warmer than room temperature. Both of these factors will have an effect on the flavor and the color of your liquid. On the contrary, keeping your e-liquid in the fridge or freezer will actually help preserve it. The fridge is the preferred method among most e-cigarette users but the freezer works just as well. The cold temperature will keep any chemical reactions from happening between the substances, preserving flavor for the long run. Keep in mind when you take out your e-liquid from the fridge or freezer your juice will have a thicker consistency. Just make sure to let your juice warm up to room temperature before filling up your device or trying to vape it.
Does e-liquid expire?
One important question that is asked a lot is, “does e-liquid expire?” The answer is yes. Worried you might be smoking expired e-liquid? Don’t be, most e-liquid brands have an expiration date of two years; which is a lot longer than the time it takes most people to go through a bottle of e-liquid. The reason e-liquid expires is due to the oxidation of the nicotine and the loss of flavor due to chemical reactions between different substances.

How long does a bottle of vape juice last the average consumer?

If you would like to know exactly how long a bottle of e-liquid will last you keep track of how many ml of liquid you use in a day than divide the size of the bottle of juice by that number EX:
Billy vapes 4 ml of liquid every day. He always buys the same 30 ml bottle of juice but wants to know how long it will last him. To find out Billy takes the number of e-liquid he goes through in a day (4 ml) and then divides the size of the bottle (30 ml) by that number. After the math Billy learns he goes through a 30 ml bottle in 7 and a half days roughly.
