How do you mix: by weight or by syringes?


@BathVaper dude you’re like my new best friend for all your help haha.

Aye, I used to double check my old scales like that… Maybe for that reason maybe not :wink:

But those scales only went to 1 decimal place and tbh I wasn’t as fussed if it was a wee bit out haha


I couldn’t really comment.

But I’ve still got a beautiful little balance scale around somewhere from the pre-digital days…



Bought it, LOVE it. :heart_eyes: :smirk: Would fight for it. :grimacing:


So, how many of you go through your stash and put in the manufacturer specified gravity? Or do you just go with the 1ml=1g proximity?


ELR has built in gravities for TPA, Capella’s and Flavorah - As for myself, I use the standard…


Built into the calculator is what you are saying, correct? So will the weight I put into my stash page change those? For example, a brand you did not mention (fw) ,if I was to put in 1.025, would the calculator use that?


At the moment it’s only TPA, Capellas and Flavorah that has gravities (and MSDS-sheets). If you put anything in the weight field in your stash you override it.

You can always check the flavor details page, if it has a manufacturer specified gravity (and MSDS-sheet).

I usually make an announcement here, and I try to keep the ELR Guide on Wikivapia up to date as well…


Finally got scales, life’s a breeze now!


Isn’t that the truth! I look back now and think, why did it take me so long to stop fiddling with drops and move to mixing by weight??? Sooooo much less trouble!


Thank you, Thank you and Thank you! Cant wait till my scale arrives, its going to be so much easier to mix and I think I might really enjoy it. Its been a chore washing my syringes just to measure more flavor and my numbers are coming off too. Oh Thank you! :kissing:


I got that same Etekcity scale in today, Jim. I’m very frustrated with it right now as the display turns off after about 3 seconds if I don’t add weight within that time. How are you using this thing without being frustrated? What am I doing wrong?


Well, poop! I’m sorry you are having issues with your new scale! I have no idea why yours would power down after 3 seconds of no use. Mine does not do that in the least. In fact, I have been waiting for mine to power off during mixing and it never has. I feel bad that you may have gotten a bad unit.

But hey, if it makes you feel any better, my new vapor flask mod (used for 5 days) just took a dump on me. It just went belly up, right in the middle of my vaping enjoyment. $70/5 = $14 dollars a day…then the the sound of a toilet flushing rushed through my ears! I feel your pain!


I hate it when that happens. Any chance it can be adjusted or repaired?


Who’d you buy it through? Amazon? eBay?


I have an Etekcity one too. If I hold down the tare button, a number comes up. I’m not positive, but I think it may be the auto-off delay. If I press the mode key it switches between 60, 120, 180, and 0. That’s the only thing I can think of. Or maybe different batteries? The ones mine shipped with were kinda junky. Hope that helps. :confused:


Duh! I didn’t even think about weak batteries. Good call; might help!


I bought it (the Etekcity) from Amazon. Tried brand new batteries, no luck. I’m returning it and ordering another one. Even though it’s more expensive, this American Weigh has the AC-adapter and won’t turn off if using it. Supposedly. lol We’ll see. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SVQHWY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER


This may be off topic but why is the default on the create a recipe page set at 35 drops when it is not 35 drops…Its 20…?
Just wondering…


For many droppers it’s 35 - you’re free to set it to what you wish :smile:


Ok, just did a little experiment and with my droppers it is 40… So I wasn’t off as bad as I thought.
Just another reason for me to switch to weights…LOL :smile:
Scale is already on its way.
Didn’t mean to sound like douche.
