Wait, Did My E-Juice Really Expire?

Wait, Did My E-Juice Really Expire?

Having good e-juice from The Dollar E-Juice Club is honestly one of the most important aspects to vaping. Without it, you aren't going to be able to vape. It is possible for e-juice to go bad so you want to make sure that you are taking care of yours and paying attention. This article will discuss why it expires, what happens when it does, and if it's still safe for vaping.


Why Can E-Juice Expire?


There are a few reasons why an e-juice might expire. Those reasons are talked about next. 

Storage
If you don't store your e-juice correctly then it can expire. You want to make sure you keep it away from high temperatures and light. Both can make your juice go bad. The best place for storage is a dark and cold place, at room temperature of course.

Sealing
You want to make sure you keep your e-juices sealed. The more oxygen that gets into the bottle, then the higher the chance of the juice losing nicotine and going bad. Make sure you keep the lid tightly on when not in use and don't leave the lid off for extended periods of time.

Time-Period
All e-liquid bottles should have a label that tells you the expiration date. If you have your liquid for a long time, then you should check the date to make sure it hasn't passed. If it has then it probably is expired.


What Happens If My Juice Expires?


If it expires, there are a few things that could happen. These are talked about below.

Separation
Having expired e-juice can cause separation. A good juice will have the heavier parts sink to the bottom but if it doesn't mix back up when you shake it a few times then it's expired. 

Color Changes
When you have expired e-liquid, it will more than likely change colors. Having a slight color change is fine but if there is a drastic change then it may be time to toss it out.

Smell
Normal e-juices have the smell that corresponds with the flavor. Expired juices will smell a lot different than they are supposed to.

Thickness
A lot of times, when an e-juice is expired, the juice itself will change consistency. For instance, if your new liquid is thick, then it'll thin out when it expires. The same goes for if a new liquid is thin then it will thicken up quite a bit.

Nicotine
When an e-liquid expires, the nicotine content will drop. You will notice this because you will end up vaping more because you won't be getting as much nicotine as usual. This is a big sign that your juice is expired.

Taste 
The final thing that can happen is the taste can be drastically different. If you didn't notice any other changes but your liquid tastes gross or completely different, then chances are it has probably expired. 


Can It Still Be Vaped?


While there really isn't many studies that say if it's safe to vape expired e-juice, it is recommended that you don't. There could be bad side effects or it could just be bad for your health. The best plan of action is just to throw out expired juices and just buy new.

As you can see, e-juice can expire. If you store it correctly and make sure you pay attention, then you can usually keep your juice between 1 and 2 years. Watch for the signs of expiration and throw the juice out if it shows them.
