NICOTINE! How? Where? and Why? April 06 2019

Australia is one of the very few countries in the world where it is illegal to sell nicotine over the counter. but it is legal to import and use personally.
You cannot sell it or gift it to anyone but you may use it yourself and import it for personal use.


So you've recently purchased or are about to purchase a vape/vaporiser to use, you are most likely looking to replace cigarettes with your new device.
This is where it can get a little tricky for new vapers! 
how much nicotine is the right amount and what kind of nicotine depends on the type of vape you have and your personal tolerances.

So lets first split your needs into two easy categories!
there is "MTL" and "DTL" vaping.

DTL stands for "Direct To Lung" This is for the more common vaping hardware where the inhale is much more direct as you just inhale through the vape without the puff interval and commonly attributed to a larger inhale/exhale of vapour. wattage starting form 15w upward past 200w in some cases. 
For this usage we use standard nicotine solution. ordered in 100mg to minimise dilution of your liquids and make it easy to measure.
The general starting point is around 6mg for most vapers but it is a very personal choice and people can vary dramatically so don't be shocked if you'd like even 12mg or 2mg! but 6mg is a safe starting point.
This is where you can purchase it, From the USA, FDA approved!


MTL stands for "Mouth To Lung" where you vape it like a traditional cigarette with a puff type inhale. this is usually for small lower watt devices often referred to as "Pods"  for these we recommend "Nicotine salts", disregard the name it is still a liquid.
Nicotine salts are manufactured in a different way as to have a vastly smoother hit at higher levels, 18mg of salts has a comparable "throat hit feel" to 6mg of normal nicotine. Because of this we recommend a starting level of between 12mg-24mg,
start small, you can always and more but you can't take it away. 
This is where you can purchase it, From the USA, FDA approved!


Handel Nicotine with care, Use gloves as it can be absorbed through the skin.

Keep out of reach of children and pets it is a potent poison undiluted.

Store in the freezer, at above zero degrees it can oxidise become harsh and denatured.

Measure it with extreme care and accuracy. a fraction of a mil is the difference between perfection and disaster. we recommend a measuring syringe.

JUUL - Why can't you get them in Australia? April 06 2019

A very common request we get is for JUUL pods a common vape device sold in gas stations and convenience stores across America. because of this it is a common starter device for many Americans and has gained interest in the Australian market from online reviews.

So why can't you find them here??

This is because JUUL devices use a pre-filled non refillable pod full of nicotine fluid.
Unfortunately in Australia no nicotine products other than Tobacco and Nicorette products can't be sold to the public. That means under current federal laws it is illegal to sell JUUL devices in Australia.

Don't stress yet more info on how to get nicotine below. 



Fear not! we have the solution!!

JUUL is a "pod" style vape device. there are over 50 pods systems on the Australian market available that are for the most part a better device with noticeable improvements. the biggest being they are refillable, meaning you spend less money on pods and have a more consistent vaping experience.
Other benefits include: bigger battery, larger juice capacity, many many shapes and sizes with a plethora of colour schemes.

Follow this link to have a look at some of the different styles!



What if you really really really want a JUUL?

Then I'd recommend the  Vladdin RE kit, it is very similar to the JUUL in form factor the few differences being a longer lasting battery, and refillable pods meaning longer lasting, cheaper, plus you get to choose from over 1200 different flavours at Victory Vape!

Also the OVNS JC01 pod kit and cartridges are interchangeable with JUUL devices. They are compatible yet refillable and thus more environmentally friendly as well.
We all love the dolphins



What about other pods? whats the best? which one will suit you? 

That can be a difficult question to answer as it is just so personal.
There isn't a bad kit otherwise we wouldn't stock it but everyone will have a different preference on things like size, shape, flavour, and vapour production levels.
But here are the favourites of the Victory vape team.
