How Do Nicotine Salts React to Hot Conditions?

Many of us happily spend a good deal of money each month on salt-based vape juices that tantalize us with delicious flavors and a potent dose of glorious nicotine salts.  Given the fact that e-juice can be quite a monthly expense, it’s important that we care for our juices properly by storing them in a way that best preserves their formulas.

Now that we have entered the summer season, it’s time to discuss what happens when nicotine salts get too hot.  As you’ll see, the importance is evident to keep that e-liquid nice and cool as the temperatures rise during the coming months.  Otherwise, you might end up wasting money on e-juice.

When Temps Start to Soar…

Maybe you’ve heard of the term “oxidization” from articles about steeping e-liquids.  Oxidization is a process in which oxygen is introduced into vape juice, and it forces certain molecules to bond with each other while others evaporate.  In short, oxidization, in the right amount, allows e-liquid to develop a bolder flavor and, sometimes, a more potent nicotine hit.

However, there is such a thing as over-oxidization.  When e-liquid is exposed to certain conditions, too much oxidization occurs which causes the formula to evaporate and perhaps separate.  This can ruin vape juice because it changes the consistency while weakening the flavor.

Both freebase and salt nic vape juices can fall victim to over-oxidization, but salt-based juices contain benzoic acid which can speed up the process.  And, one of the things that can cause over-oxidization to occur in a short amount of time is high heat.

Basically, when you leave a bottle of salt nic e-juice in a hot car or outside during a scorching day, you’re forcing oxidization to occur at a rapid pace, and the benzoic acid is helping those important molecules break down more quickly.

Is Overheated Salt-Based E-Liquid Dangerous?

Overheated nic salt e-liquid isn’t dangerous to vape because there’s nothing in the formula that becomes toxic when exposed to high heat.  However, you’ll probably not enjoy your vaping session very much because the flavor will be altered, and the consistency will become so thick that it’s hard to pull.

Can I Still Vape Overheated Nic Salt E-Juices?

If your nic salt vape juice has become overheated, you’re welcome to try to vape it so that you don’t feel like you’ve wasted precious e-liquid.  If it vapes okay, go ahead and enjoy it.  But, expect the flavor to be a little off and your vapor production to be less than satisfying.

How to Properly Store Your Nicotine Salt E-Liquids to Keep Them from Getting Too Hot

As you may have heard, e-liquid needs to be stored in a cool and dark place.  This environment slows down the oxidization process so that the qualities of the vape juice don’t change much over time.  Now, this means that during the summer months, you have to be extra careful when it comes to where you leave those bottles of juice.  Never leave e-liquid outdoors on a hot day or in your car.  Instead, try to keep your bottles in a closet or a drawer indoors.

The Bottom Line

While salt-based e-liquid that’s been overheated isn’t necessarily dangerous to vape, you still want to be very careful about how you store your e-liquids.  After all, who wants to throw out a bottle of perfectly good juice because they accidentally left their bottle in the car all day? 

Now that you know what happens to overheated nicotine salt vape juices, you can make the right decisions in order to preserve that juice properly.
