We all love that comforting feeling when you find a trusted e-liquid to match your new vaping device, but wouldn’t it be a shame if all that delicious flavour went to waste because you forgot to check the vape juice shelf life?
An important question that most vapers forget to ask our experts is, how long does vape juice last?
The answer depends on how you care for your e-liquid after purchasing, so we’ve created this guide to explain how to store vape juice, helping you to get the most out of your favourite flavours.
How long do vape juices last?
The answer is that after purchasing, your e-liquid shelf life can last up to two years if it has been stored correctly. Value for money or what? This isn’t us saying that every vape juice will go bad after two years, different ingredients can also have an impact on determining how long vape juices last.
PG (Propylene Glycol) and VG (Vegetable Glycerine) are featured in all vape juices whilst differing in qu

The Financial Times has reported today that the European Union, which faces significant economic problems, plans to triple vaping tax in the near future.
This measure, to increased levies- especially on the higher nicotine strengths, potentially doubling their current cost and adding up to 3€ to the retail price, will hit the most addicted smokers turned vapers the hardest - pushing many back to smoking.
In response, vaping.com is launching a campaign to make sure the UK Government doesn’t tax vaping in the same way as cigarettes, and instead, looks to reduce vape VAT to 5% - in line with other nicotine replacement therapies such as gum and patches.
With the British Government also facing an apparent £40 billion black hole in its finances, it’s not hard to imagine that the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, could be looking to similarly hike taxes on vaping.

Prisoners are to be handed free vaping kits as jails in Scotland go tobacco-free.
Cigarettes will be banned in all prisons from November 30th to bring them in line with UK law, which forbids smoking in public places.
Until now, prisoners have been allowed to smoke in their cells and some communal areas.
The new £200,000 initiative is part of a country-wide programme to support inmates giving up tobacco. Vapes will be given to all prisoners free of charge at the start of November, to give them time to make the switch before the new rules come into force.
Plans to ban tobacco in prison were announced last year amid growing concern about the health risks of passive smoking.
At present, 80 per cent of the prison population are still smoking cigarettes in Scotland and it is hoped the vaping kits will prevent unrest and even riots which has occurred

Senior British academics, who recently carried out the largest review of its kind on e-cigarettes for the UK government, were reportedly “in despair” over the new research in America which made global headlines, explaining that nicotine in vaping causes these symptoms - and coffee create a similar if not larger response.
