So I've wanting to up my DIY game a little. I've been using syringes and beakers since started several years ago. They work fine with less than 60ml batches "I thought". After researching what scale I needed and got, I noticed a difference in the the quality of the liquid I was mixing. With a eliquid calculator that takes in account weight differences of pg/vg base and flavor the difference is very noticeable. So how did I decide what scale to buy. I looked on the forum and most everyone said a 500g scale. This is only half of the answer that is the size of the scale. The scale I had in the kitchen was a nice scale for food items. I tried it and not so good for eliquid, see there is a minimum weight that will register on the scale all scales have this. See my scale was a 0.5 gram not near sensitive enough for mixing eliquid. What I found a sensitive scale could be expensive so I had to look a little harder and found one I really liked it was compact, attractive, and most of all accurate and affordable at $16. It's only a 200g capacity, but is enough for me and comes with a calibration weight. It senses change at 0.01g, almost breath of air and I have been well pleased with it. https://www.amazon.com/calibration-Electronic-Function-Stainless-Included/dp/B07HGWFBTV/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1549192622&sr=8-3&keywords=brifit+digital+mini+scale To add: I still mix in a 100ml beaker cause a 120ml boston bottle weights 110g and the beaker only 50g.
