Scale question

I want to start making my own eliquids, but the scale I ordered with 0,01gr precise still hasn’t arrived. Now I do have a scale, but that one only does per gram.

Is that very bad for my first badges of 9ml own made eliquids?

near impossible…better off changing preferences to drops and mix that way. Gl to u!

Why 9ml batches and not 10? Wait for the new one to arrive.

Or you could order a 2nd one with prime and it’ll be there in no time

This 0.001g one is really good for small bottles like your 9ml testers. I have a similar one (100g max) and it’s perfect and very precise for most of my mixes.

I only use a 1g scale when I mix 1 liter bottles and that’s only for my VG and PG because it’ll max out my 0.01g scale. Concentrates are still done on the 0.01g scale for those bigger bottles.

Yeah don’t toss that old scale, I use one for shipping packages (you have to weigh 'em if you buy postage online)

Best advice, never shared re: .01g scales. They come with little plastic covers. Use them! Never use your scale as a cup holder etc. Mine has a 500G limit and resting heavy items on there, even when turned off, damages them. Most small flav bottles deliver about .02g per drop.

My scales all have an attached cover which only opens for a brief period that I use them. As soon as the bottles comes off the scale, the cover closes.
No scale should ever reach the maximum limit. They’re sensitive tools and need some TLC to keep working properly.
