Element E-liquids NS20 Review: Flavors on Another Level

Rockin’ designer

Looking to kick things up a notch? Element E-liquids just raised the bar with their full line of nic salt based e-juice. This stuff is designed for use with refillable pod mod devices such as the Pulse or the RUBI. They contain 2% nicotine (20 mg) and come in a variety of flavors. Let’s put them to the test.

If you’re in the EU, it can be difficult getting a hold of e-liquid containing higher than 20 mg nic strength. Element has taken that into consideration when designing their NS20 line. This juice was formulated specifically for people who need that extra boost of nicotine despite TPD regulations.

Price – €7.99 per 10 mL

Our setup

For this review I will be testing these liquids in the Digiflavor Siren 2 MTL GTA with a 1.0 Ohm SS316 coil. We also tested some of the flavors in the Aspire Gusto cartridges that come pre-filled with NS20.

If you aren’t using a pod-style device, you can purchase these e-liquids for use in a regular tank. I’d highly recommend going with a MTL style vape, due to the high concentration of nicotine salt.

Let’s crack dem bottles

Honey Roasted Tobacco

I haven’t smoked a cigarette in years. I’m so far removed from the taste of tobacco at this point. Even so, I thoroughly enjoyed this flavor. It gives you that tobacco note, but with a sweet and creamy aftertaste. If you love tobacco, but want something a little bit sweeter and savory, this one is for you. I’d compare this one to Tribeca by Halo, but instead of caramel, they use honey to sweeten the deal.

Chocolate Tobacco

Good chocolate e-liquids are rare. I have tried quite a bunch, and most of them either don’t capture that authentic cocoa taste, or have an unpleasant aroma. Not this stuff. I would still categorize it as a tobacco flavor, but with a nice chocolatey aftertaste. If you’re a tobacco and chocolate lover, this is going to be a real treat for you. It reminds me of smoking a chocolate-flavored cigar. Only way better.

555 Tobacco

This e-liquid is a true tobacco flavor. It’s like smoking a cigarette, but much more enjoyable. Once you vape this stuff, you’ll never want to go back to cigarettes again. Perfect for smokers who are still making the switch to vaping, and craving that pure tobacco taste. Element has captured the perfect balance of tobacco leaves, with a slightly sweet aftertaste. It’s like smoking, without the nasty taste.

Grape Vape

I happen to be a big fan of grape. This e-liquid was a bit disappointing. I was hoping for it to taste like a dark purple grape juice. Instead, it tastes more like grape candy, or Kool-Aid. I’m sure some people will still love this one. I can still enjoy it, but it isn’t going to become my all-day-vape anytime soon.

Pink Lemonade

I’ve already enjoyed this flavor before in Max VG, but never with nic salt. Having tried this flavor in the Aspire Gusto pre-filled pods, I am impressed. They captured that classic, fresh Pink Lemonade flavor, a signature of their original lineup. But in a formula containing more PG, and nicotine salt. If you like natural-tasting liquids with a nice tangy bite to it, you are going to love their Pink Lemonade.

Fresh Squeeze

Chances are, if you’ve tried Element e-liquid before, you have tried this flavor. It has been a staple of their collection for years. It’s not as organic-tasting as their Pink Lemonade, but still very refreshing. It reminds me of something in between a freshly squeezed orange juice and Tang. Sweet and tangy. If you enjoy a cold glass of orange juice (who doesn’t), then I highly recommend that you try this juice.

Pink Grapefruit + Blueberry

I love pink grapefruit. I haven’t found an e-liquid that really captured that sour, bitter and fresh goodness that I get from eating them, until now. The bad news is that I didn’t taste much blueberry. The good news is that it adds a unique twist to your standard fruity vape. If you love pink grapefruit like me, then this will be your all-day-vape. Fresh, sweet and not too bitter. You’re gonna love it.

Other flavors

Element eliquids ns20 bottle

There are 7 other flavors that we didn’t get to try yet, but they sound enticing. Crema is a smooth, creamy dessert vape. Frost is a minty flavor for menthol lovers. Strawberry Whip is their take on a Strawberry Cream Dessert. Watermelon Chill is a watermelon flavor with a smooth, minty aftertaste. Key Lime Cookie is a buttery, key lime pie meets cookie flavor. Candy Punch is a sweet rainbow fruit blend. Last, we have Neon Green Slushie, a zesty, 711-esque lime frozen treat.


These liquids would be perfect for smokers because they deliver a massive rush of nicotine, even with a small puff. I am impressed how hard they hit considering that they contain less than half the amount of nicotine in a JUUL cartridge. If you’re in the EU, and you want high-nic juice, try NS20.

I’d highly recommend them in the new Aspire Gusto device, or using a refillable pod-style vape. I have been vaping the Grapefruit Blueberry in the Kandypens Feather for a week, and I can’t seem to get enough of it. Props to Element for creating an entire line geared towards nicotine salt vapers. If you’re looking for that big throat hit and surge of nicotine, give Element E-liquids NS20 a shot.

Just tried the tobacco flavour and am impressed….I have refilled old/empty Juul pods and it works a treat, not quite as nice as the Juul tobacco flavour but still very good.
So impressed that I will be trying other flavours soon
