Dekang Liquids: A Few E Liquid FAQs

One of the most exciting aspects to e-smoking is the ability to change the flavors of your vaporizer, and LiteCigUSA offers you a huge variety of popular and unique flavors with which to do so. First time e-smokers may be a little at loss with regards to e-liquids so we have compiled some FAQs to help you get started!

What are they and how do they work?

E-liquid or e-juice is a nicotine solution containing nicotine dissolved in propylene glycol (PG) and/or vegetable glycerin (VG). Both of these elements are common food additives and found in many things we eat and drink!

Wait, these contain nicotine?

E-liquids come in a variety of differing nicotine concentrations from zero, to low/mid-range doses (6-14 mg/mL) and high/extra high doses (16-26 mg/mL). So you can opt out of any nicotine at all if you prefer! The concentration ratings are typically labeled on the bottle or cartridge.

What flavors are available?

There are as many e cig liquid flavors as there are fish in the sea! Alright, perhaps not that many, but we stock everything from champagne to menthol flavors. For a classic smoker, select the Kamel Turkish blend flavor or opt for the Havana Cigar. Have a sweet tooth? Try butterscotch, caramel or crème. And if you, like me, are not too big a fan of flavored smoke, I recommend the unflavored e-liquid for a smooth, neutral smoke.

Should I refill or buy new cartridges?

Ultimately the decision is up to each individual smoker. Some prefer to keep their cigarette cartridges and refill them as they go since this can save a good chunk of money. However, we recommend purchasing new cartridges for different flavors to avoid flavor contamination (you don’t want your butterscotch cartridge influencing the taste of your new fruit punch liquid!). If you are loyal to one flavor, feel free to keep refilling the cartridge, however, for new flavors you should purchase a fresh cartridge.

How do I refill a cartridge?

It’s easy – simply pop out the cartridge, open the liquid bottle and drop 2-3 drops into the cartridge. Be sure not to fill it too much otherwise it may leak into the battery and cause damage.

I got a few bottles of my favorite flavor liquid – where do I store them?

E liquids do not need a specific storage temperature or location, but we recommend the following:
- Keep them out of reach of children
- Store them somewhere locked where youngster cannot access them
- Cool, dark places will extend the shelf life of the product; if you anticipate storing them for extended periods, we suggest keeping them in the refrigerator.
- E liquids will expire 24 months (2 years) from date of purchase

How long will the liquid last?

A 10mL eliquid bottle is equivalent to roughly 200 cigarettes so 1 bottle will last quite a long time! One cartridge of eliquid will produce the equivalent of 4-10 cigarettes. Of course all of these numbers depend on your rate of smoking and the strength of the liquid. Higher nicotine liquids will last longer since the user will inhale harder and more frequently causing the liquid to be used up more rapidly.

The Joye eGo: Why It’s Popular, Why You Should Choose It

If you’re in the market for a new electronic cigarette and have been doing some research online about products and models, you’ve probably noticed all the hoopla surrounding the Joyetech eGo e cig. Perusing e cigarette sites and forums, it becomes abundantly clear after a while that the eGo is taking the electronic smoking world by storm!

The popularity of the cigarette is not without reason, as many loyal fans will attest to, and the eGo is a great cigarette for both new electronic smokers and seasoned e cig smokers alike! For the novice, it offers a pleasant transition from smoking traditional cigarettes while experienced electronic smokers will notice the subtle improvements in the eGo over the 510 that make smoking this cigarette so enjoyable!

This cigarette has been a hit since it launched earlier in 2010 and is still the premier PV (personal vaporizer) available on the market – take a look at our top 5 reasons why you should choose the Joyetech eGo!

Reason #1: Battery Life

Loyal eGo users gush about the amazing battery life on this Joye e cigarette! Unlike older models or cheap knock off versions, the Joye eGo battery lasts for several hours. On average, it can last 7-8 hrs with heavy usage or up to 72 hours with low to moderate usage. That means that infrequent smokers needn’t worry about charging or changing their batteries for up to 3 days potentially!*

Additionally, the battery charges very quickly – on average 1.5 hrs! You could pop it in after work and be ready for a relaxing smoke after dinner time!

Reason #2: Smoking Experience

Many smokers switch to electronic cigarettes because of the overall improvement in the smoking experience. Traditional cigarettes can often be harsh on the throat and lungs, but electronic cigarettes are typically less  rough on sensitive areas. Additionally, e cigarettes eradicate the foul smell associated with traditional cigarettes and eliminate the harmful output that can hurt those around us.

The Joye eGo takes all of these improvements a step further by providing a great throat hit, plenty of vapor production and rich flavors!

Reason #3: Trusted Brand

Joyetech has been a leader in the electronic cigarette industry for many years so you know that you are purchasing quality when you purchase their products. The eGo, in particular, is a state of the art piece of smoking equipment that combines efficiency, pleasure and design in one smooth, sleek atomizer.

Reason #4: Easy to Switch

If you’re considering a switch to the eGo but are hesitating because you still have a 5 pack of cartridges for your 510 cigarette, don’t worry, the 510 atomizers and cartridges are compatible with the eGo making the switch that much easier!

Reason #5: Bang for your Buck

With the extended battery life, ability to continue using your 510 cartridges and more intense, full-bodied flavor, the Joyetech eGo is a cigarette that packs way more bang for your buck. For the same price as most other starter kits, the Joye eGo kit includes 2 atomizers, 2 cones, 2 batteries, 5 cartridges, 1 USB wall adaptor and so much more. Check out everything included here!

*These numbers are averages attained via testing and cannot be guaranteed, each user will experience their own level of battery life dependent on usage.

Electronic Cigarettes: A Beginner’s Guide

Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes as they are more colloquially known, have seen an explosion in popularity over the past few years due to increased visibility and acceptance. With the word quickly spreading about the ease and comparable cheapness of these cigarettes, even celebrities are jumping on board!

For the e-cigarette novice, navigating through the millions of websites selling electronic smoking products can seem quite daunting – how do you know which electronic cigarette model to select? How do you find the best prices and the most reputable online suppliers?

As with most things, it is important to research products and companies before jumping in. Many online retailers try to pass off cheaply-made knock-off products as name-brand pieces, so be sure that you are buying from a legitimate retailer. Any retailer worth their salt will provide honest customer reviews about their products and be up front about the brands and manufacturers they stock.


Certain brands are well-established and credible, providing quality products at an affordable price. These brands have become popular for their excellent products, such as the Joye eGO produced by Joyetech.

Joyetech is one of the leading names in electronic cigarette production and their eGo cigarette is one of the most popular models available in the industry! Browse around to find out more about each manufacturer and their particular e-cigarette models – each type of electronic cigarette will have a different and unique trait. For example, some are smoother, some are more intense! Other popular, reputable producers include Smoore and Gamucci.

LiteCigUSA proudly stocks a wide variety of products by Joyetech, including the eGo and 510 models! All of our products come straight from manufacturers so you know you are receiving genuine name-brand items. You can rest assured you will not receive knockoff products as we only stock name-brand electronic cigarettes from trusted suppliers such as Joyetech and Smoore.


Batteries are a critical component of the electronic cigarette and must be assessed and researched closely before purchasing. Read customer reviews and find out which manufacturers have recently upgraded their batteries. Battery life and duration are critical to take into account as the cigarette will most likely be used frequently and having to change out the battery often can become tiresome and expensive.

Atomizers & Cartridges

E-cigarette atomizers are one of the e-cigarette components that will need replacement regularly as they usually expire after about 2 weeks. The atomizer is the cigarette’s heating element which vaporizes the liquid so that it can be inhaled. These typically last 2-4 weeks depending on frequency of use and model so it is important to stock up and have extras at hand! Like cartridges, this is one of the parts that require frequent replacing and are one of the recurring expenses associated with electronic cigarette smoking.

Cartridges are also known as the “mouth piece” of the electronic cigarette and are usually a small plastic piece attached to the end of the body of the cigarette. The cartridges contain the flavored e liquid that will be vaporized and inhaled by the user. Once the liquid has been depleted it can either be refilled or the entire cartridge can be changed out. Some companies also manufacture cartomizers – a combination cartridge and atomizer in one. These include a pre-filled disposable portion that can be switched out once the liquid has been depleted.


The best way to become initiated in the ways of electronic cigarette smoking and purchasing is to start with a kit. The kit can kick things off smoothly for novices by providing everything you need to get started! Select the brand and model you prefer and then purchase the kit for that model. The kit will feature key pieces to get you going: atomizer, cartridges, batteries, etc. In addition to stocking the essentials, kits often supply you with a stylish carrying pouch so you don’t lose your new pieces, as well as instructions and a USB wall charger. The Joye eGo starter kit features the popular Joye eGo cigarette and comes loaded with doubles of everything you need – 2 atomizers, 2 cones, 2 batteries, etc. We highly recommend this kit for those of you new to e-cigarettes!
