    Here is a pic of my nicotine. 72mg or 7.2% PG 100%.

    On steam engine where you put nicotine strength i put 7.2% at 100 PG and on the recipe it says to add 12.50ml or 12.94g for a 30ml batch.

    When i go on POTV calc i put nicotine as 72mg at 100% Pg and that says to add 1.25ml or 1.29%.

    Which is correct? And why is there a 10ml contradiction between the sites?

    I can give more info if needed.

    Thanks 1483998888010.jpg

    It looks like the 12.5 ml would be the amount I would put in for 10x30ml (300ml)
    A 30ml batch at 3mg of nic is correct at 1.25ml
    I'm quite sure of this but also quite new to mixing so would like this confirmed befor you mix a batch but can definitely say that 12.5ml is a hell of a lot

    72mg/ml nic

    You want 3mg/ml or 90mg/30ml

    90/72 = 1.25

    If you input the base nic' as a percentage, you have to input the target strength as a percentage also. I think you might have input the target strength as 3% rather than 0.3%.

    Yes, easy mistake. It's 0.3% or 3mg.

    With nicotine that's 72mg divide the 72 with the strength u require so I use 6mg so 6÷72 =12 so for every 12ml of liquid I need 1ml of nicotine.
