    Hello fellow members, I am wondering how many drops is in a 30 ml bottle, I am looking to do the math on it and see how much it saves me money.. 10-15 drops for a nebula/vaporking cart from a 30ml bottle..

    about how many drops?
    or about how many carts (refilling) doing 15 drops in each vaporking/nebula cart

    Aprox 20 drops per ML, so 600 drops per bottle. That's 40 15-drop carts.

    If I have 24 mg nicotine juice, is 20 drops (or 1 ml) equal to 24 mg? If I put 10 drops in the cart every time I refill and I vape that entire cart througout the day, did I just vape 12 mg?

    WOW!! You just confussed the heck out of me!LOL

    My commonsense always told me that no-matter how many drops you put on your e-cig, whether it be 2 or 20, each hit will give you a dosage of 24mg of nicotine within the vapor.

    commonsense aside, I also base this on people saying that each hit of a real cig gives ya between 36-38mg of nicotine per-puff, so with each hit of vapor you are getting 24mg per-puff if the bottle reads 24mg. Also, it's the entire bottle (as a whole) of e-liquid that is 24mg, it's not per-drop (one drop 24mg, 2 drops 48, ect), or like food product as per serving.

    Correct me in I'm wrong, but I stick by it :)

    I think thats wrong. I read it only takes 90mg of nic (all at once) to kill an adult. MG is per ml i think. And i also read a cig is about 1mg of nic. Per puff is usually messured in micrograms i think.

    its mg per one ml...

    so 24 mg would 1.2 mg per drop.. i aint say this is accurate but its how the figures were originally arrived at.. the early carts all held 1 ml of liquid..

    And, Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop? Sorry, easily amused...

    Not sure. Take a smaller container, use a dropper and put 1 ml into it and keep track of it. Count the drops, then multiply by 30.

    A ONE, A TWO, A THREE, CRUNCH!!! :p A THREE! :D

    I'm with the Owl on this one, 3!!!




    Then why is it I constantly read that there is between 36-38mg per each hit of a cig? I know it don't make sence as MG is not per-puff but as dosage.

    My heads spinnin :(

    I'll try to find a discussion on it....

    Ok this will end the confusion.
    You have a 30 ml. bottle. SO whatever strength u have, 36mg./24mg/18mg./12mg.
    For each ml. you have that strength of nicotine. SO 1 ml. = 24mg. if thats ur strength.
    Roughly 18mg. is around a pack of smokes. SO 1ml. is pretty much equal to a pack of cigarettes. I always say, in a 30 ml. bottle ur gettin at least 3 cartons of smokes equivalence. SO, technically, I used to smoke 2 packs a day, so I should go through about 2 ml. a day, and it would equal out. this 90mg. theory of Overdosing, is kinda ludacris. I mean if someone drank a 30ml. bottle that might cause a problem. but, with the mixtures in the bottle etc. You can pretty much vape all u want. I vape on 36mg. all day long, and Ive never even got light headed before. Hope this helped.

    Perfect...this is what I thought but wasn't sure...1 ml. (or approximately 20 drops) equals the approximate strength listed on the bottle. Thanks so much for clearing that up.

    Hi,

    I am new so this may not make sense. I seem to have issues getting all of the juice out of a cart. Sometimes I think I am wasting 1/4 of what I use through evaporation or spillage or just not emptying carts. So for me I would use 3/4 of what I actually use as a real usage number.

    I agree, thanks for the clarification. Any other disputes or is this one pretty much set in stone?

    a pack of camel lights is 14mg divide by 20 smokes you get.7mg per smoke...........you are definitely not get 36mg per puff............full flavored cigs end up around 22mg per pack divide by 20 and you 1.1mg per cig..........20 drops is close to 1 ml of juice so 30ml would be 600 drops.

    There is no real consensus on how nicotine your body receives from vaping and everyone is affected differently.
