Vaping is a fast, fun and convenient alternative to ordinary cigarettes and similar products. Whether you’re brand new to the vape scene or just want to get the most from your experience, a question that comes up again and again persists:

“What’s the real difference between vape juice and a vape cartridge?”

Both products represent great options for you to customize your e-cigarette. Still, it’s important to know the difference. When you have a clear understanding of the options, it’ll be easier to decide on the right vape experience for you. Let’s take a closer look.

Vape Juice vs. Cartridges: The Basics

Vape juice and vape cartridges both serve the same function: Providing you with the flavor you want in your e-cig. Some of the most popular flavors around are traditional tobacco and menthol, so you can stick with your favorite flavors even after you leave conventional smokables behind.

Both cartridges and juice come in a wide variety of different flavors. In addition to the classic flavors mentioned above, you’ll also see all kinds of fruit mixes, bubble gum, cinnamon and much more. The choice of delivery method usually won’t limit your taste options at all.

For true flavor customization, each flavor also has a designated strength of nicotine.

Now, let’s get down to the key differences:

Vape Cartridge

Vape cartridges have been around since the start of the e-cigarette revolution. They are popular because they are simple and easy to use. You can keep them on hand without having to worry too much about where they are stored – yet, the quality they offer is the same.

Standard vape cartridges come pre-filled with whatever liquid flavor is listed on the box. You don’t have to mess around with them and you can simply toss them out when you’re done. They come in packs ranging anywhere from five to 15 cartridges. Each lasts about as long as one pack of cigarettes.

Pre-filled cartridges are easy to use; just drop them into place and get started. Each disposable cartridge usually contains its own atomizer, so that’s one less part you have to replace. Here’s the thing, though: Each brand’s cartridges usually work only for its e-cigs, no one else’s.

Vape Juice

E-liquids give you a lot more versatility and control over your flavor.

You can fill your tank (or, if you use them, your refillable cartridges) with liquid from any brand. And, compared to pre-filled cartridges, there are a lot more flavor options available.

With liquid, you also have the option to mix and match flavors to create something unique. At VaporFi, we make mixing easy through our custom e-liquid feature that puts nearly 30,000 flavor combos at your fingertips.

Vape juice produces a lot less waste since there are no cartridges to toss out. VaporFi vape juice bottles are also recyclable – no need to worry about environmental impact.

Plus, getting juice instead of cartridges can save you money over time if you enjoy vaping many times a day. The drawback? Vape juice can be kind of messy at first – it takes a little while to get the hang of it.
