Thank you. I'll get some 4oz and 8oz next time I can.
Thank you for your time and the great details in this post.
I’ve been mixing with this scale for years, wish I’d read this way back then!
I posted a similar thread and blog entry in 2013 and only got a handful of replies since hardly anyone was interested. Looks like people have finally grown enough brain cells to value this method
Well the carbon dioxide in cigarettes can be hard on the brain, or so I hear. Maybe we've all wised up.
Although, let me be clear, I don't actually find this method valuable. I use nic base and volume to be quite honest. I have also found the necessity to be accurate to the Nth degree not necessarily that important *to me.* Things that are necessarily "Accurate to the Nth degree" tend to include things like medications (although I guess the FDA does NOT think so, I mean generics can be pus or minus 20% that is a 40% degree of variance people! If you find a generic that works, get your pharmacy to special order it for you, they will. Okay that is my PSA for the day.)
I wonder if once vape pods go "generic" they will be allowed to have a "plus or minus" variance of 20%. With the Juul pods, I guess that could be a problem.
Sorry, I'm not sticking to weight. Yeah, it was okay. I didn't find it quicker than nic base plus flavors but eh.
Oh it's not really about accuracy (at least not to me it is). It's the convenience of putting down bottle on a scale and just throwing in ingredients without the need of extra measuring tools and without having to do cleaning between the different ingredients and afterwards.
I can make a recipe even if I'm in the car or on the train because there's no need to rinse anything. It's accurate, it's quick and it's clean.
Is there any info as to what percent of e-cig users DIY mix?
I'll check the "Polls" section...
Not as many as one would hope, mixing isn't common in the wild.
I would be Surprised if the Total was more than 10 ~ 15%.
That's probably what the numbers are here. Hopefully I'm wrong, don't visit the shops anymore so don't talk to many vapers.
You won't find DIY in vape shops like buying up overpriced equipment anyway? Isn't 90 percent or so of their sales in eliquids?
But yes, I am thinking not that many. It can be a steep learning curve AND (I sometimes feel) a PITA after a mammoth mixing session but you know the deeming thread was convincing and I read most of it early on.
That would be interesting information to know. I haven't seen polls that reveal a percentage. As easy as it is, you'd think the numbers to be significant. $100 spent on scales, PG, VG, Nic, and flavors goes a long way vs spending it on vendor juice. I get that vendors need customers, but the current climate suggests that we all switch to DIY if we plan to continue vaping. Government seems set on doing away with anything but tobacco flavors.
And yet , the stix that killed so many people,slowly,is still allowed in every store shelf
Well in my state tobacco must be behind the counter, under glass, or in a locked cabinet.
ALL STATES.behind counter. Ur Taking it too literal..you get the idea
For them that don't know the cost savings of DIY.
30 ml. = $ 0.70
I would be surprised if the DIY e-liquid total was even 1%.
I'd guess way less than 5% have ever rebuilt an atomizer.
My college aged kids buy from some store and get those pod things. Never been on an e-cig forum.
I think the numbers who buy replacement juice and hardware online is significant. Maybe much more than 50%?
I'm not sure how you would get a valid poll. Naturally the numbers would be skewed way high if you poll on an e-cig forum.
