Where to buy e-cigarettes and e-juice
All cigalikes are prefilled with nicotine e-liquid and need to be ordered from overseas:
Second and third generation models
Brick and mortar vape shops
Later generation ECs can be purchased at vape shops which provide advice on which model to purchase and how to use and maintain it. Most also have a taste bar, so you can try flavours before you buy. Some tobacconists also sell devices.

In Australia: Nicopharm
Flavoured and unflavoured nicotine solutions can be purchased legally in Australia online from Nicopharm.
Nicopharm provides a range of premixed flavoured solutions in various nicotine strengths
- Nicotine concentrations available: 1, 3, 6,12, 18, 24 mg/ml
- 23 flavours are now available: blueberry, cappuccino, double apple, cool mint, peaches and cream, caramel, smooth tobacco etc
- Base: 60% PG: 40% VG
A prescription is issued in-house by a medical practitioner to meet the legal requirements for each order. The solution is then prepared in an Australian compounding pharmacy and delivered with 1-2 days.
Nicopharm products are prepared to Australian pharmacy standards. All ingredients are pharmaceutical grade. The pricing is very competitive. I have no commercial or other relationship with Nicopharm.
E-juice with nicotine can be purchased online. Most beginners purchase premixed (ready to vape) solutions of nicotine in PG and VG with flavourings. Labelling of nicotine concentrations is generally accurate and variations post no major concerns, according to Public Health England.
More advanced users purchase nicotine solution in bulk (100 mg/ml) and add it to flavouring solutions. You can buy premixed (nicotine-free) e-juice from vape shops such as The Steamery or prepare your own by mixing flavouring with PG and VG. Regular vapers have nicotine testing kits to confirm the concentration of nicotine supplies.
Under Australian law, you will need to have a prescription for nicotine solution to purchase and use these products legally.
Some websites recommended as reliable by regular vapers are:
By my calculations, the cost of buying a device and e-liquid for an average user is about $70 per month.
