What Makes a Vape an All Day Vape?

What Makes a Vape an All Day Vape?

When you're browsing e-liquids, you'll frequently come across the description 'All Day Vape' or 'ADV'. This is a term that has become popular in recent years and refers, unsurprisingly, to a vape juice that can be vaped 'all day'. 

But what exactly are the qualities that define an all day vape? And what are the best e-liquids for all day vaping? 

Read on to learn everything you need to know about ADVs. 

What's the definition of an all day vape?

An all day vape refers to an e-liquid that can comfortably be used all day. All day vape is not a specific term -- it doesn't mean a particular volume, flavour, or strength of e-liquid. It's a personal thing. Therefore, vapers often disagree on whether a vape juice can be considered an all day vape. 

What are the criteria for an all day vape?

While all day vapes may vary from vaper to vaper, an all day vape tends to be one that meets the following criteria:

  • A comfortably low nicotine strength so that it can be puffed all day without discomfort from too much nicotine consumption or an unpleasant throat sensation
  • A flavour that is balanced or subtle, not overwhelming (often fruit or menthol based)
  • A pleasant and natural flavour without an unpleasant or artificial aftertaste
  • Vapour production isn't overpowering

Which e-liquids make a good all day vape? 

As we explained earlier, different vapers will have different preferred all day vapes. Nobody can tell you what yours should be. 

However, if you're looking for inspiration, here are some of our favourite vape juices that we can happily vape throughout the whole day.

Ruby (Gems Range)

One of our favourite all day vapes, Ruby is a best selling e-liquid from Dr Vapes Gems range. This fruity e-liquid is stuffed full of freshly picked, super juicy strawberries which bring sweet and slightly tart notes to the balanced flavour profile. 

Ruby is available as a shortfill, ready to be vaped in its nicotine-free state or with an added nic shot to achieve your desired all-day nicotine level. We've also created a nic salt version in a 10ml bottle which is perfect for vapers who want a super smooth throat hit and fast-acting nicotine. Available in 5mg, 10mg, or 20mg nicotine, the Ruby nic salt is ideal for vaping throughout the day. 

Purple Panther 

Another popular all day vape is Purple from the Dr Vapes Panther series. Purple is a grape mega medley, with white grape, red grape, and concord grapes blended together into the ultimate fruity vape juice. 

Why is this such a great all day vape juice? Well, this is a perfectly balanced flavour that you're unlikely to get bored of. The three varieties of grape give it an aromatic and sweet taste with a slight tingle of tartness, making it a delight to inhale and exhale. If you think you'll get bored of a grape-flavoured vape, think again: there's so much going on in this simple but effective e-liquid flavour that it will never lose its appeal. 

Moreover, vapers can enjoy this e-liquid as a nicotine-free shortfill (we recommend opting for a salt nic shot if you wish to add nicotine) or as a nic salt with either 10mg or 20mg of premium nicotine formulation in a 10ml bottle. 

Pink Ice (Pink Series)

The Dr Vapes Pink series is all about sensational flavours: fruity blackcurrant, cotton candy, pina colada, and more. We love all of these as all day vapes, but if you're looking for a more subtle taste the best option is Pink Ice. 

Combining sweet and delicious blackcurrant with a cooling menthol breeze on the exhale, Pink Ice is a perfectly balanced vape that is great for use throughout the day. The menthol iciness keeps it refreshing and pleasant while the fruit flavour brings a mouth-watering sweetness to the mix. 

Available as a 10mg or 20mg nic salt, this e-liquid is perfect for your favourite pod kit or vape pen. It's also available as a great value 100ml shortfill that will keep you going for a long time. Add shots of nicotine to this high VG juice if you like and enjoy some pleasant vaping throughout the entire day.

How do I choose a nicotine strength for my e-liquid?

The perfect all day vape needs to have the right amount of nicotine for you, but how do you figure out what that is? 

We've written a super helpful guide to choosing a nicotine strength, which covers everything you need to know in a lot of detail. 

However, if you just want quick answers, here's a quick cheat sheet to help former smokers understand nicotine percentages in vape liquid. 

0mg = perfect for casual vapers who have never smoked, have successfully cut down their nicotine consumption, or enjoy nicotine-free sub-ohm vaping 

3mg-6mg = a low nicotine strength, ideal for ex-smokers who only smoked a few cigarettes a day

12mg = a medium nicotine strength which is suited to former smokers who get through 15-20 cigarettes a day

18mg-20mg = a high nicotine strength for anyone used to smoking more than 20 cigs a day.

It will take some time to find the perfect nicotine levels for you, so don't be discouraged if you can't get the right strength straight away. Every vaper is different; you might find that you need a lower or higher dose than you first expected and that's okay. 

When choosing an e-liquid for an all day vape, make sure that the nicotine strength is low enough to allow you to take many puffs throughout the day. 

Final thoughts

Vaping is a truly personal thing and no two vapers are the same. That's why there is no universal all day vape, but instead lots of different people with different vaping preferences. 

Here at Dr Vapes, we want to create vape juice flavours for everyone. That's why we've crafted a wide range of e-liquids with flavours inspired by fruit, desserts, sweet treats, beverages, and even tobacco. In our selection of high VG shortfills, super smooth 10m bottles of nic salts, and freebase nicotine e-liquids (not currently available in the UK / EU), there's something for everyone to vape.
