    Seen a post herein show boiling points of different mixes but, its limited. I'm presently vaping 12.5/87.5 pg/vg w/ 7% whiskey. Plan on dumping the alcohol and going straight water. Just the same, does anyone know of a calculator or detailed chart?

    Its easy. Once you start yelling at everyone you've reached your boiling point. Oh you're talking about eliquid. :facepalm: Sorry.

    Gentle Smoke, MDSS (Material Data Saftey Sheet) and the likes can be helpful. Can't remember what the chemistry ones are called though.

    Remember that stated boiling points are at sea level. Altitude increase lowers the boiling point.

    Out of curiosity, what good would knowing the boiling point of the e-liquid do you? During use it only heats to 100°C at which point the water in the e-liquid flash boils and ejects the e-liquid as a fog of tiny droplets.

    So Esq stands for Esquire? I'll spare you the legal opinion jokes. Before I answer you question, let me tell you of the post I just wrote. I call it the distillation problem. As I vape (TC Mode) my etoh - h20 - pg - vg mix, clearly they are disappearing in order of boiling point. So saying that I'm always at 100c isn't correct. Yes, when there's water still in the mix, I sense a lower temperature. However, there is a combined solution boiling point that I think I should hit to get a uniform vaporization (although I take it that you would argue against this). And, ultimately why I want to know the boiling point is to make a judgement as to whether my TCR is set correctly.

    Yeah I picked a pretty stupid nick when I joined back in 2012. I don't really remember what I was thinking lol. I am definitely not a lawyer.

    Looks like I found your other thread and will talk there.

    Hello Charlie. It would help if you paid the $50 to access the full article :). But thanks for trying. I wonder why nobody is promoting boiling point calculators or charts. It seems to be an essential vaping parameter.

    I am going to say that probably it is because safe temperature ceilings have pretty much been established for most eliquid, in general.

    Do note my "in general" but for the majority of cases, that may well be enough specificity-- for them. IDK I'm just hazarding a guess.

    Safety is one thing, flavor is another. And as you know form my "Distillation Problem" post, I'm concerned about vaping my components evenly. I believe that requires that you set your temp to BP in TC mode. Anything more is overkill and less leads to uneven vaporization.
