    HI Guys!! I use about 15mls a day and I've been DIY my juice with very light flavor for a couple years and have learned just trying it out is always the best teacher. But I have a question please since this is a bit more expensive I don't want to mess it up. I've ordered my very first order of Nic Salts, from NN. I've read so much on them I'm excited for great flavor.

    I'm wondering .... anyone with experience here are any recommendations on mixing with the differences of base verses the salts on the nic levels. If I normally mix a batch so the end result is 100%VG 12mg. (sensitive to PG) AND I do want the end result with the Salts to be similar so do I want the very same levels with the Nic Salts or do I want more or less?

    Is the whole hype with Salts is that this will taste so much better but still nic is the same, I'm still confused there. :unsure:
    Thanks!!!

    Use the same percentage as you would for free base nic. Main difference is salts provide a smooth th.

    I vape about 5ml of 20mg a day.
    I just figured out on another post that I have saved over $9,000 in the six years I have been vaping.

    I DIY nic salts the exact same way as freebase nicotine, (18 mg/ml) and notice no real changes other than smoother vape. Some folks say nic salts are more bioavailable more quickly so you may just want to keep an eye out for an sx of nic overload, but I really haven't found that to be the case or a problem for me. I just stop vaping when I feel satiated. I would be surprised if you had any major problems at all, but if you wish to be cautious you could certainly try a mg or two less, you can always add to it. But I would proceed as normal, honestly.

    HI Anna, so no greater flavor the only change is that its smoother.
    Sad .... I've read that it was so much more robust, smoother is good but I'm hoping for better more robust flavor too. I guess I'm feeling comfortable now to blend it up using the same method and with a couple of test runs which will provide results on the learning curve and something new is always fun. Thanks Now it's just waiting for the mail!!! :tumble:

    If you want more nic flavor all you have to do is let a small amount of your nic to oxidize. Or use a nut flavoring in small percentages to add a robust note to your mix.

    I do use a nut flavoring now but to Oxidize do you mean the steep time? With regular base nic I usually steep a week or what is to oxidize the nic....... Thanks

    Just oxidize some nic before mixing. Maybe pull 3 samples of nic at let them oxidize for various amounts of time and mix with them.

    About 10-15 ml per day - I have a few setups and refill before empty so that's my estimate at 1.5 to 3 of nic at 20 watts

    I was just wondering that about myself. I use a Nautilus 2 x3 daily with 0nic taking grandtwins to school, then pickup/drop off at aftercare, then take home. I figure about 4mls. Only use N2 in van.

    Then using multiple tanks throughout the day with various stock coils. I figured probably 10mls or so.

    Then I got an RDA, using single coil and due to ohms having to use higher wattage, easy way to burn thru lackluster e-liqs lolol. But it did make them taste better.

    Now I'm thinking after trying dual coil and being mezmerized by all encompassing and enveloping clouds, I need one setup just for that with inexpensive juice I really like. I see it as those times where I'm super stress and just need some alone vape time....

    So now after this, I see where it must become a balancing act between what I want and what I need. Plus learn to be a master mixer so $ arent an issue, because it would get super expensive otherwise.

    I now understand how some can vape thru lots of mls daily depending on their setup.

    Amazon also has them and is where I ordered from. Since nic is supposed to be refrigerated or kept in freezer, this might be a good option. If refrigerator has handles, go buy some cheap link chain, bolt cutters, and master lock. Nice to have a around anyways... Any key shop can make extra keys for locks. Think I'd look for airtight container to store bottle of nic inside.
