    I read a bit about mixing your own juices, and aromas and concentrates etc. Im thinking about buying this in near future. But im wondering, how is is to add nicotine to a 0% nicotine?
    There are some 30ml bottles flawors id like to try, my other alternative is to buy 10ml bottle with nicotine added. Many has a bit low strength, before when i vaped i used 24mg. 18 was a bit low, it worked. But it wasnt ideal..
    So, has anyone tried this?
    Any info regarding this you like to share? Guides or websites containing info is also cool, i watched some videos. On was really good, gonna add it because he did a very good job explaining i think. But more info is always welcome.
    Im considering buying 100mg base, just to have a nice number and it will last me some time. Gonna buy some bottles and put it in the fridge so it will last me some time.


    Tnx for replies. :)

    Btw.
    Here is a noob's guide video i liked. Maybe someone else will find it useful as well

    Sneipen if you use 100mg base and you adjusting 30mls of liquid you would add 5.4mls nic, if it's a 60ml bottle 10.8mls.

    This of course is an estimate based on using e-juice me up with no flavors and an 80/20 vg/pg mix.

    Adding more nic to a retail, or existing DIY juice is no problem.
    Just remember a couple of things...

    Shake/mix very well to eliminate hotspots of concentrated nic (maybe let it meld a day as well, with repeated shakings).
    And keep in mind that you are diluting the existing flavor strength by whatever fraction you are adding. In Marc's example (and that's only 18mg, not the 24mg you preferred) that's adding over a sixth of the original volume.
    Myself, I find retail juice overly flavored, so it might not matter to you either.

    And that gets us to... use strong nic to minimize the additional volume.
    Can you get 100mg in Norway?
    I'm not up on the reach of the EU limits (72mg max I believe).

    Im aware of calculators. Im just curious if anyone have tried mixing nicotine in regular 0% premix.
    Lets say i buy 30ml of a premix without nicotine. Will the extra fluid\nicotine base dilute flavors much if i lets say bump up nicotin level to 18-28mg with a 100mg base?
    Reason i ask is, the is a couple of flavors i wanna try. But not found of 10ml bottles and one flavor itsa bit low mg. :)

    Didnt see your post when i replied jim. Tnx.
    I see, im not sure of regulations is where where i live. We arent a part of eu. Pink mule from spain is selling 100mg. Was considering order it there.
    Cant find anything regarding max strength i can import for own use, cant even buy premix with nicotine here. So, thats why i want 100mg to last me a little longer, and its a nice nubmer to work with. Hehe

    If you added anything it is of course going to dilute flavor to what degree depends on how strong the flavor.

    It's like anything else, add flavorless liquid to a premix and that "waters down" the original flavor.

    I've done it but I vape at 3mg so I'm adding less then 2mls, no noticeable flavor loss.

    I've added some to mine. Works good with some juices, not so much with others.

    It can be complicated with adding to preexisting juice, so I'm glad you decided to just start DIY. It's so much easier, a lot of fun (like anything vaping some background reading is useful) but I have a great time DIY and I am so glad I started doing it! The flavors I create are superior (to me) than storebought and I have total control over my ingredients.

    I'd say start with an easy recipe of one or two flavors. I read a bunch, mixed single flavors and started combining them in my tank until I got a feel for how my palate responded. Sure, I poured out a few awful mixes, but I also got a sense of what goes with what. Now, I'm mixing 2--3 flavor mixes (sometimes with a reluctant sweetener a few drops) and I'm very pleased with the results... for me. :)
