    Ok some help please people.

    Hi Everyone,

    Ok time has finally come that I have to do my own mix. I'm almost out of my sampler pack from HiLIQ "Australia Top 10 Sample Pack". Today I got my order from VaporKing

    • 10ml of Monkey Milk to test the flavour (Doubler, 60%PG / 40%VG)
    • 120ml of Sweet Sin (Doubler, 60%PG / 40%VG)
    • Sweet Tooth Sampler Pack


    I already have Unflavored 3-48mg/mL Nicotine Base 250ML (Strength of Nicotine 5 24mg/ml 2.4% Base 7) VG50% & PG 50% from HiLIQ.

    I totally don't understand the calculators take for instance: e-Liquid Calculator :: New recipe.

    • What do they mean by "Water/Vodka/PGA"? I'm I supposed to and one of these?
    • What do they mean by Desired PG and VG? My flavours are all 60/40
    • Nicotine strength? Is my nicotine base 48mg or 24mg?
    • When I click on "Add flavour" I can only choose PG or VG.
    • Do I need to purchase any Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin?
    • So just as an example if I wanted to make 20ml of 12mg Sweet Sin what would be the recipe?



    Sorry for some reason just cannot work it out.

    You can only end up with a mix of 55PG45VG:

    10ml of Deadly Sin doubler (60PG40VG)
    10ml of Unflavored 3-48mg/mL Nicotine Base 250ML (Strength of Nicotine 5 24mg/ml 2.4% Base 7) VG50% & PG 50% from HiLIQ

    I would like to try the doubler strength.

    I'm confused on the strength not sure if its 48mg or 24mg because it's listed as "3-48mg/mL Nicotine Base 250ML (Strength of Nicotine 5 24mg/ml 2.4% Base 7)"

    That's the strength

    So it's just half and half?

    A doubler is meant to have an equivalent amount of liquid added to it to dilute it down to normal flavour (doubler being double flavour). Usually, nicotine base is added and sometimes PG, VG, Vodka and/or water (but not necessarily all of them). With the strength of nicotine base you have (24mg/ml) and your desired end strength (12mg/ml), your have to add an equal amount of your nicotine base as you have doubler.

    Yes, in this case.

    If you had a stronger nicotine base, you would need less and make up the remainder with PG, VG, vodka or water. This is where the calculators come in handy, or just ask and someone will answer.
