After the fall of the market size due the e-liquid tax, it seems both companies and vapers have now adapted to the new regulation. As the market starts to grow again, we find advance modular systems have a high prevalence.

Due to a tax on e-liquids containing nicotine, most e-liquid bought in Portugal is nicotine free. Vapers are then adding nicotine separately to avoid increasing the price.
