An article has been brought to our attention from a company called Aquios Labs who are developing a pioneering technology concerning “Water-Based” vaping. They have released a Press Release stating the principles and its benefits and are hoping it will be implemented by the major vape brands.
While we are not familiar with this principle, we felt it worthy of a mention and to help promote its awareness as a possible emerging advancement in the world of vaping.

Aquios Pioneers Water-Based Vaping
The vaping sector has a track record of embracing innovative technology and applying it to next-generation nicotine delivery. Aquios Labs is looking to introduce an entirely new product category to the industry: water-based vaping.
Most traditional vaping devices and e-liquids contain no water at all, and in those that do, the water content is restricted to 3% or less. Until now, the low viscosity of water made it unsuitable for use in vaping devices at any meaningful level.
Aquios Labs is positioning itself as a technology company, rather than a consumer-facing brand, hoping to integrate water-based vaping into existing product portfolios. The first generation of its technology, dubbed “AQ30”, can support up to 30% water content, using a combination of specially formulated e-liquid and hardware design. The first commercially available water-based vaping devices will come to market at the end of April. Aquios says it is already developing the capability to support even higher levels of water content.
Water-based vapes perform differently to their traditional counterparts. The water content reduces dehydration and irritation, helps to deliver nicotine more efficiently and produces a more natural flavour. In addition, the operating temperature of water-based vaping is much lower than traditional vaping, which greatly enhances the chemical stability of the vaping process.
Aquios Labs Founder Jack Sanders said: “We founded Aquios Labs because there’s still a long way to go in terms of improving the vaping experience. We believe that water-based vaping is the new frontier of nicotine delivery and AQ30 is already demonstrating this by drastically reducing the dehydrating effects of vapour while delivering clean flavours. We welcome new and existing vape brands to consider how this technology can be adopted as part of a growing product offering.”
Industry titans Innokin are already placing a significant bet on the future of water-based vapes, with plans to integrate Aquios Labs technology into a wide range of their entry-level devices. Consumers can expect to see Innokin devices with AQ30 technology debut in Q2 2022.
Innokin Co-Founder George Xia said: “Innokin has always believed that new technology has the power to eliminate the need for combustible tobacco. When we were introduced to Aquios, our product development team was immediately sold on the unique advantages of water-based vaping. We look forward to hearing feedback about our range of water-based devices when they launch this April.”

This certainly seems an interesting principle and we look forward to reading and seeing where this leads following their launch into the vaping market in the very near future. I’m curious how this will effect the end result in terms of flavor and vapor performance, especially when DIY e-liquid mixing.
The article doesn’t mention if the hardware will change in any way to accommodate this new technology. Will we see different coil designs to meet this new technology? Hopefully we won’t have long to wait before all is revealed.
I will admit that I’m a little unclear at present about the ratios of the water-based principles and percentages as one of our team here (Adam) is PG intolerant and as such vapes AVG which is a VG base mix thinned with 10% distilled water. This is a fairly normal concept when vaping high VG in order to reduce the thick consistency of the overall e-liquid mix.
As the article states they hope to have this implemented in Q2 of 2022, we will be able to get a clearer understanding and try it out in real terms.
