Can Vape Juice Freeze in Cold Weather?

While vape juice can freeze, it takes very cold weather for this to happen. To put things into perspective, while the freezing point of water is 0°C, the main ingredients of vape juice,  propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, have much lower freezing points. For example, propylene glycol freezes at -74°F, while vegetable glycerin freezes at 55°F. When the two are mixed together, the freezing point of vape juice means that when you see snow or frozen puddles, your vape juice should still be able to be vaped, but that isn’t a problem, which we will address in our first tip. 

Tip #1: Chose a Vape Juice With at Least 50% PG

Yes, the freezing point of vape juice is much lower than that of water, but it can vary depending on the VG/PG ratio. That’s why it’s always better in the winter to get a vape juice that has at least 50% propylene glycol. Believe it or not, there are excellent vape juices that come in 50VG/50PG ratios. Another reason for getting a vape juice with at least 50% PG is because vegetable glycerin tends to be very viscous, becoming even more so in cold temperatures. This will make it difficult to use in the cold, so remember that in the winter it’s better to get a vape juice with at least 50% propylene glycol. 

Tip #2: Keep Your Vape Juice in a Warm Inside Pocket

Even if you get a vape juice that has 50% PG, it’s important to keep your vape juice as warm as possible. If you are going to vape in the winter, we recommend that you keep it in an inside pocket of your jacket so your body heat can keep it as warm as possible. Leaving it in an outside pocket will  open it to the possibility of becoming cold and difficult to stay warm. 

Tip #3: Don’t Use Complicated Coils

If you use a box mod, you probably use coil heads, but on the off chance that you use a dripper with custom made coils, we recommend you don’t use those in the winter. Since the complicated coils take longer to heat up, you open yourself up to the risk of suffering from dry hits while the coils try to warm up in the cold weather. So in the winter, use simple coils that warm up faster so you won’t waste any vape juice or ruin your coils from too many dry hits. 

Tip #4: Chose a Flavor That Will Keep You Warm

Finally, we recommend that you go with a flavor that will warm you up in the winter. Having a 50% PG vape juice will no doubt give you a nice throat hit, but if you were to accompany this with a dessert or coffee flavor vape juice, you get to taste a comforting flavor during the cold weather. Find a flavor that you will love to taste in the winter like bourbon or even a classic tobacco flavor. We wrote about the best vape flavors to try out during the winter in this blog, which will give you ideas about some great flavors to try.


And that’s it, our short guide to keeping your vape juice warm during the winter. Perhaps the most important tip to remember is to get a vape ejuice with at least 50% PG. This will ensure the freezing point is lower and you’ll get a nice throat hit that is perfect for the winter months.
