Users are typically introduced to vaping with the mass-market products on the left, move to the middle for a more satisfying vape (as the analog imitators are very high nicotine and low vapor), and end up on the right when they really start wanting more flavor and less nicotine (more on that shortly). This is likely why, as sales of mods or “open system” devices have increased, sales of disposables have plummeted (and why tobacco companies that make disposables would rather mods just go away altogether).

Not only does it taste like burning butt hairs (I don’t actually know what burning butt hairs taste like, but I have imagined tasting them, and it’s gross), but it might actually ruin your cartomizer, coil, or wick. So figure out how to fill it up, and make sure everything is properly saturated.
When you eat or drink something that contains diacetyl, it’s considered harmless—it even occurs naturally in some milk products, and in a few wines and beers. But inhaling it is a different story, and can have serious health risks. Because of this, vapers have been concerned about the presence of DA and AP in e-juices for awhile now, and many trade organizations have limits on the levels of DA and AP that can be present in the liquids they stock.
That said, very few carcinogenic chemicals have been found in e-cigarette vapors, and those present only appear to be in trace quantities – far less than in burning tobacco and similar or less than in recognized nicotine replacement therapies.
The risks of inhaling DA were first discovered in the summer of 2000, when a handful of workers in a microwave popcorn plant in Missouri started getting diagnosed with a rare, severe, irreversible lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans. Even non-smokers who worked at the plant were getting sick, and investigators soon discovered it was linked to inhaling diacetyl—which gave the popcorn that “real butter” taste—on a daily basis. Soon after, NIOSH, the research branch of the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recommended guidelines for factories where DA and AP is used, to prevent workers from getting sick. But OSHA has yet to translate those recommendations into meaningful regulation.
There are reasons for this. Most users start off at a high nicotine level when they are still getting off of analog cigarettes. When a beginner graduates to a device that produces more vapor, they don’t need as high a concentration of nicotine to be satisfied. Then, they may want to further “step down” (decrease the nicotine strength) once they find that high nicotine actually screws with the flavor of an e-liquid. Simply put, the less nicotine you use, the better your liquid will taste and, despite what media pundits seem to think, it turns out that even adults like things that taste good.
