    Mixing flavours using calculators

    Hi all,

    I can't seem to wrap my head around the JuicemeUp calculator even WITH the help pages. (I sucked at math at school, sorry)

    What I am trying to achieve :

    30ml of flavoured 11mg/nic at a 70/30 pg/vg blend.

    Items I have at my disposal :

    38mg unflavoured nic 75/25 pg/vg blend.
    100% pg
    100% vg
    Various 5ml doublers from JW

    Any ideas please?

    And how did you get to that conclusion, just so I can try and understand it?

    [EDIT : So if I am using doublers, I can only make twice as much as the amount of doubler I have? EG : 5ml of banana doubler will make 10ml of banana flavoured nic? Won't 50% flavour be too strong?]

    or

    3.1ml nic juice
    0.2ml vg
    1.8ml pg
    5ml doubler

    to make 10ml at 11mg 75%pg 25%vg

    a doubler is meant to be mixed 50/50 hence you double the amount you start with
    it is not a flavour concentrate

    Doublers are concentrates mixed with pg or vg already to make it easy for us to just do 50/50 mixes. You can do more or less if you want but the flavour is supposed to be mixed at 50/50 to get the best result. So to answer your question yes you can only really make double the amount you have so 5ml will turn into 10ml once mixed with your nic.

    Its the concentrates that are really strong that you only mix a couple of drops in your mix.

    its really easy to use

    1. adjust your nic juice strength and pg vg ratio eg 75% 25 % 36mg

    2. adjust your target strength eg 11mg

    3. adjust amount to make eg 10ml

    4 go to flavour 1 and put in 50% if you are using doubler adjust pg to 80% and vg to 20%

    5.go down to the ingredient list and change your final pg vg ratio

    6. click calculate

    hope this helps

    This is the part that gets me, I think. How do I know that the flavour I am using is 80/20 pg/vg? Or am I looking at this entirely the wrong way?
