Hi there! I crafted my first blood of vape juice, the flavoring was a premixed version. Unfortunately I put in the wrong Nicotine Juice amount into the calculator and didn’t notice until after I already made the bottle. I did notice the amounts changed. I put in the Nicotine Juice as 18 MG instead of 20 MG, should I be concerned, or toss the vape juice bottle just to be safe?
Here were my numbers I followed:
Nicotine Juice 18mg : 20ml
PG: 8 ml
VG: 20 ml
And here is what it should have been:
Nicotine Juice 20 mg: 18 ml
PG: 9 ml
VG: 21 ml
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
Don’t toss, if you added too much you can make a bigger bottle, too little add more, etc etc.
Your not too far off what you were trying to accomplish. Have you vaped any of the mix you consider a mistake? It might not be as big of a mistake as you think.
Thank you for the suggestion!
I haven’t vaped it yet, that is a very good point, I was just worried that I added too much nicotine and that I would poison myself or something if I tried to vape it lol
It’s my first time trying a diy kit so I’m a bit nervous
You added less nic than your goal. You didn’t state if you are using salts or base (PG or VG). With regular nicotine I don’t go over 18mg/ml. It starts to get too harsh to vape.
Depends also on the equipment your vaping on. Low power pods, stick to 18mg/ml to start it’s the approximate of 20 cigarettes give or take. Higher power mods with RTAs, RDA, or commercial coils that 18mg/ml can be reduced to around 6mg/ml because of efficiency.
Welcome to ELR and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Welcome to ELR @Souppie. Good thing you caught the error beforehand. As the other guys have said you’re in the ballpark, so no harm no foul.
Thank you for the welcome! I’m using a Geekvape Aegis Legend Mod, I used a base that had 50/50 VG/PG and my aim was 6mg as that is the strength I usually vape at with premixed liquids at 43.0watts.
Just make sure those are salts, because 20mg freebase will make you cough your bag off
Good to know, cause it wasn’t salt lol
It’s ok soupie, just thought I would say something before you coughed so hard you’d poopy
Sounds like you’re doing great. 20mg/ml of nic should give you quite the nic buzz. Always better to have less nic in the mix and vape more than have a mix with too much nic in it.
@Souppie you said you’re brand new to DIY, and I can see you are mixing by volume, i.e. ml. Have you ever tried to mix by weight, i.e. grams ?? How large of a bottle was your mix for ?
Welcome and glad you joined.
18mg/ml × 20ml of nicotine = 360mg nicotine
20ml Nic + 8ml pg + 20ml vg = 48 ml total juice
360 mg nic ÷ 48ml = 7.5mg/ml nicotine
Total Nicotine strength is 7.5mg vape juice.
If I read this right you got a total of 48 ml of juice
With two nic shots of 20 mlg nic
How much flavour have you put in ?
The nic shots will make 120 of juice @ 6 mlg I’d check those figures before you have a blast
