    I found a few commercial juices that I like, but some have very low nic. I am two months into non-smoking and require more nic. At a vape shop, they sell 'nicotine packs' that are pre-measured 1ml or 2ml nicotine to add to commercial juice. The price is high.

    I have found one or two online, but I have no idea if they are decent. I don't want to ruin my juice with bad nic. I went to nicotine river and other web sites, but have no idea what nicotine I should buy, so the nic packs seem safest.

    Can anyone recommend good pre-measured nic packs?

    There’s really no difference between using those little prepackaged nic things that you’d pay a premium for and buying a bottle of nic from Nic river or anywhere else.

    You’ll still need the same info in order to add how much you need.

    How much juice? How high is the nic already in it, and how much do you want to raise it?

    Also, how many mgs/ml is the nic you’re adding?

    You need those numbers either way.

    Good choice. I agree there's no point bothering with the nic packs. There are several threads in this forum about different brands, so you should be able to identify a decent product.

    Have you looked into how to calculate the amount to add? If not, there are two ways to do it.

    A calculator like this one:

    Nicotine Shot Calculator / Shortfill Calculator - Vaping Hardware

    Two notes about this calculator
    1. To find out how much nicotine to add to premade juice to bump up the nicotine, select 'Nicotine Shot' for type.
    2. Where it says 'Amount of zero nicotine e-liquid' it actually means 'Amount of whatever nicotine e-liquid' - It's just the amount of juice you want to top up

    Or, if math holds no terrors for you, you can calculate it yourself:

    Nicotine base to add:

    = [volume of juice you want to top up in ml * (target concentration - concentration of existing juice)] ÷ (concentration of nicotine base - target concentration)

    I am not arithmophobic. I'll certainly use that calculator to check my work! Thanks!

    Hi K,
    If you can add a few nic packs, you can handle measuring the same amount in a pipette/syringe.
    At almost 10 times less expensive:
    Salt based
    Nice clean Freebase

    Store the bottles in a cool dark place.
    Cheers

    Wow they didn’t use to have all them choices. I checked my bottle I have Purnic. I buy a liter at a time so I haven’t bought any for several months. Back then you either picked one of the nic salts or the other stuff which turns out was Purnic. So yea Purnic is good stuff lol

    Yes, it was all very confusing to me. That's why those nic packs looked good. I got some good advice on it, though. Thanks!
