How To Use An E-Liquid Mixing Calculator
There are lots of benefits to making your own e-liquid and a mixing calculator is one of the most important tools to utilise.
Before you start measuring out your quantities and collecting your equipment, you might want to check out our mixologist guide for some advice on what you might need to get started.
Mixing your own e-liquids can be a very cost-effective solution to buying e-liquids. Mixing your own juice isn’t as complicated as it seems as you only need four ingredients to get you started.
Where Can I Find An E-Liquid Mixing Calculator?
There are lots of ways you can measure out the quantities you need to make your own e-liquid. We have made things even easier for you by creating our very own e-liquid mixing calculator on Vampire Vape.
A Step by Step Process:
- Decide Your Amount - Input the amount of e-liquid you want to make. You can change this total at any time and the overall ingredient measurements will adjust.
- VG/PG Liquid Ratio – This is where you decide on your desired overall VG and PG ratio. We advise that you don’t add extra diluents however our Vampire Vape calculator will allow you to do so if you need to.
- Nicotine Strength – Input your desired overall nicotine strength.
- Nicotine Base Strength – It is recommended that you leave this at 18mg if using our NicIt Up range or amend accordingly if you have another nicotine strength.
- Nicotine Base Ratio – Nicotine also has its own VG and PG ratio. All you need to do is input the ratio into the section as displayed on the nicotine bottle/label (select custom and change accordingly)
- Flavour Concentrate – We recommend mixing the flavour between 15% - 20% (20% is usually the most popular option). All of our flavour concentrates are 100% PG based. Some flavours such as Black Jack or other menthol concentrates can be quite strong flavours so we recommend mixing these at a lower percentage of 10% - 12%.
- Results – Once you have inputted all of your numbers, you will see your measurements you need to add in millilitres, drops or by percentage. Just follow these measurements and you will have a perfect recipe.
- Make a Note! – Once you have created your flavour, it is a really good idea to make a note of your measurements just so you don’t have to complete the progress again. Plus, you will start to collect your own little book of recipes that you can share and improve in the future.
- Steeping - Steeping is a personal choice. A lot of our fruity flavours are good to vape straight away but oxidising your liquid over a few days will help to improve the flavour.
