At Totally Wicked, we wanted to do things a little differently and make it easier for you, as we respect all our customers equally; from the new users who have come to our site for the first time, through to the experienced user of a number of years who is looking to purchase the latest device. Our company and website have grown, both in size and product complexity, and the ability for newer users to navigate easily and find both information and products has understandably become a little more difficult. This page has been designed to help you find your way around easily and find the right products for you.
What is Totally Wicked?
Totally Wicked has been trading in the UK since 2008 and is one of the founding companies of the electronic cigarette market. It was established with a mission to provide the best quality electronic cigarettes and nicotine fluids, and to provide the best possible customer service and support. We are a very open company and we positively encourage customer engagement, providing several means for this; you can join us through the use of our forum, or through contacting our customer service team (1-888-761-9425), or joining one of our growing social media groups. Perhaps you would like to come ‘in store’ and visit one of our company lounge’s? At Totally Wicked we live by our mission statement, and this is something we are very proud of, but to find out much more about that, visit our ‘about us page’.
What is an Electronic Cigarette?
Together, the 3 assembled sections form an electronic cigarette. Depicted below is a Totally Wicked Tornado eGo-C electronic cigarette. There are many variants, some that attempt to look like a conventional tobacco cigarettes and other that look nothing like a conventional cigarette, but they all work along the same principles with the same primary component parts.
What Does The e-liquid Contain?
Electronic Cigarette fluid, known as e-liquid is a very simple solution. Unlike conventional cigarettes that contain the nicotine and a range of products from the burning of the tobacco leaf, (many of these are known carcinogens), electronic cigarettes contain no by-products of combustion and therefore no known carcinogens. The e-liquid is essentially made of three parts:
Nicotine: The stimulant in cigarettes and the substance that is addictive in cigarettes is the nicotine. In our ‘mix your own’ range we offer nicotine in strengths of 54mg/ml and 72mg/ml, in our Platinum and Titanium Ice fluids. These are available in either a propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine base and in volumes of 50ml and 100ml.
Diluent: The third ingredient of e-liquid is a diluent. The diluent essentially performs two functions: Firstly it is added to dilute the mixture of nicotine and flavors to the correct strength. Secondly it adds the part of the solution that produces the vapor that is inhaled and ‘transports’ both the flavor and nicotine from the electronic cigarette to the user. The common diluents used in our products are:
- Propylene Glycol (PG): Our Propylene Glycol is high quality pharmaceutical grade. Propylene Glycol helps to produce what we refer to as ‘throat hit’ in combination with nicotine and flavors. As a guide, our pre-mixed e-liquids contain a mixture of 80% Propylene Glycol and 20% Glycerine.
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG): Glycerine helps to produce greater vapor and adds a little sweetness. As a guide, our premixed e-liquids contain a mixture of 80% Propylene Glycol and 20% Glycerine.
- Aqueous Glycerine (AG): Our Aqueous Glycerine is high quality pharmaceutical grade, and is diluted with de-ionised water to keep the same viscosity as Propylene Glycol.
Flavourings: Nicotine has no discernible taste. Therefore to produce the taste in your e-liquid a flavor needs to be added. There are an infinite number of flavors that can be used. We believe we stock not only some of the finest tasting and highest quality e-liquid flavorings, but also one of the widest and most exciting ranges available. We currently offer flavors within 2 ranges: the Original flavor concentrate range, which includes separate Tobacco and Flavor concentrate ranges and our new Gold Standard range which will eventually include over 80 flavors. The Gold Standard is a range that has been developed and made by Totally Wicked in our own facility. It uses only the finest quality UK sourced flavors and is a range we are particularly proud of.
We stock a large range of products, but in their simplest form they are either an ‘e-liquid’ or an ‘electronic cigarette’. Our electronic cigarettes are available in a range of styles, prices, function and colors. They are available in kits or as a range of accessory parts. Do not be put off by the apparent complexity; finding the right products is simple once you know how.
How to Find the Right Electronic Cigarettes?
This can be a tricky question to answer, as there are plenty of variables. The best way, if you are unsure of what is right for you is by visiting our Bradenton Lounge, and we will spend as much time as necessary in taking you through our ranges. However, by applying a few simple questions we can narrow down the product ranges for consideration. Let’s look at some of these simple questions:
Do you want a product that looks like a conventional cigarette? If this is an important factor for you, then you may wish to take a look at our ‘Microlite’ kit or potentially our Titan Tank kits.
Are you looking for an e-cig that is more of a ‘workhorse’? You will need to go straight to our Odyssey or Tornado range. The Odyssey, the Tornado Tank or the Tornado eGo-C are products we are very proud of and are excellent for heavier vaping. Totally Wicked makes the Odyssey here in the UK, and the Tornado range is made by our partner Joyetech, which is established as one of the highest quality e-cig manufacturers and a market leading innovator. These kits come in a single cigarette form of one battery and one atomizer (compact kits), or a double cigarette form, with two batteries and two atomizers (full kit).

How to Find the Right e-liquid?
Totally Wicked sell a vast range of e-liquid, and because of this our e-liquid ranges fall into the following categories:
- Pre-mixed e-liquid: This is fluid that is ready to use. It contains the nicotine, diluents and flavors in the correct proportions in ready to use bottles. All you have to do is choose the range you would like to try, the strength of the fluid and the flavors. Our complete range can be found on our online store. Alternately you can find our more popular ranges in our e-liquid section.
- Mix it yourself: Our customers are increasingly buying the e-liquid ingredient to mix their own range of fluids. We sell: the nicotine base fluid, a range of diluents and a vast range of flavor concentrates. Our complete range can be found on our online store. Alternately you can find our more popular ranges in our e-liquid section.
How Do I Choose The Right e-liquid?
The answer to this question is less complex than it may seem. The first thing to understand is that all our products, with the exception of our Disposables allow for the user to ‘top up’ using our e-liquid ranges. New users will most likely want to become more comfortable with the product and choices before venturing into mixing their own fluids, so if you have bought a product that requires e-liquid ‘top ups’, simply click on the ‘Totally Wicked e-liquid’ and buy some pre-mixed e-liquid.
The 3 relevant questions to finding the right e-liquid:
What Strength Do I Require? The strength of our fluids is the measure of how much as a proportion of the fluid contains nicotine. It is measured either as mg/ml or a %. These are essentially “equivalent” such that if a fluid is marked as strength of 18mg/ml it is equivalent to 1.8% nicotine volume in the fluid. With this knowledge, you must then choose the strength; we stock a range of fluids with a range of nicotine strengths ranging from 0mg/ml (i.e. no nicotine) to 36mg/ml (3.6% nicotine in the fluid). As a rule of thumb, the strength you choose is normally associated to the type and number conventional cigarettes you use:
What Flavor? This is your choice and yours alone. You will know if you like tobacco or menthol tastes or indeed whether you would like to experience something wild and exotic! We offer the widest possible range of tobacco and non-tobacco flavored e-liquid for you to choose from.
Which Range? One thing you can be assured of it that our core branded ranges, Patriot Range, Titan Fluid, Red Label and Gold Standard are all either produced by TW or exclusively for us, and to the highest possible standards of quality and safety. Your choice will usually be based on the answers to the first 2 questions i.e. you have chosen your strength and your flavor; you will then need to find the e-liquid range that suits you.
