    A few months back I started a thread about a new calculator that was available. Since that post I have received a lot of good input and have made several updates and added new features. I encourage you to download and try out the latest version. All feedback is welcome.

    Download links:
    Juice Calculator

    A summary of its features:
    Define and save ingredients
    • PG/VG percentage levels
    • Nicotine level (pre-mix ingredients)
    • Drops/ml and grams/ml
    • Cost of ingredient
    • Notes associated with ingredient

    Define and save recipes
    • Nicotine, PG and VG level
    • Selection of defined ingredients to add
    • Notes associated with the recipe
    • See resulting amounts to add (drops, ML’s, grams) and total cost of the recipe

    Modify an existing mix
    Have you ever created a mix and would like to change the nicotine level, increase or decrease a flavor percentage, change the PG/VG ratio or add additional ingredients while maintaining the same ratios of your other ingredients? The “Modify recipe” option will do this. After making your changes you will be informed how much of each ingredient to add to bring your existing mixture to the new levels.

    Build a recipe by entering ingredient amounts
    Have you ever mixed something up by throwing together several ingredients and wanted to create a repeatable recipe by specifying the amount of each ingredient added? The “Build recipe” option will do this. Enter the amount of each ingredient added and then save the new recipe.

    Includes a calculator to “Dilute nicotine” to a different mg/ml level and dilute to obtain a different PG/VG ratio.

    Export your recipe(s) and ingredients to Excel.

    Import your existing recipes from other popular calculators.

    Search your existing recipes to find recipes that contain one or more of the ingredients specified.

    Before you start using the calculator, make sure you setup your preferences on how the calculator operates by going to the “Options” window.

    Very nice!

    I really like that you included cost calculations and an option to mix by weight.

    I have a suggestion. I'd like to see a cost calculator added to the dilute nicotine section. Take the costs of the original nicotine base, VG and PG and calculate the cost of the resulting mix. Then I'd enter it as a new nicotine base in the ingredients database.

    Looks great, Thanks! If you could make the "new recipe" window re-sizable, or a bit larger, I'm using a larger font on Win 7, and it cuts off part of the bottom buttons.

    Thanks again for your work on this!

    Can you tell me what font or setting you are using so that I can duplicate what you are seeing?

    It is the medium size default Win 7 font, and clear type is on. here are a couple of screen shots. might mention this is 1680x1050 res. as well. it isn't bad, actually, some programs are so bad buttons are totally hidden, and I have to switch to default font size to make them usable.

    A new version was just posted which will calculate cost and grams from the base ingredients when diluting nicotine. You will then be able to save the resulting mix as a new nicotine ingredient.

    I will investigate. I tried the large fonts and the buttons resized and worked. I will try again with your settings and try to resolve.

    ccwaters,

    Another version just posted. See if this resolves the issue you were seeing. I changed my font size and got close to your resolution and seen some issues. I updates several Windows and it resolved the issues that I seen at my resolution setting. Hopefully it resolved it for your specific resolution.

    Love this calculator!
    It took a while to set up the ingredients list, but once I did it is so easy to use. I especially like that the cost is calculated too!

    The only thing that I would prefer is if you could just save individual recipes. I like to categorize by folders (keepers, ready to mix, rejects, etc.) instead of having multiple recipes in one file, but I can live with that for the other advantages.

    Another thing that would be nice is if the notes field was included in the print out. That way you have your notes on hand at your mixing station.

    Thank you so much HotRod19579 for your work on this!!
