    So here's a question, I've made the transition to salt based pod style and a few smaller rebuildables devices. I still have about 350 mls of free base juice left over in various flavors of 3mg free based nicotine. Hate to see it go to waste. It's all pretty thick stuff and very dense on the flavor. I was thinking of attempting to home brew the free base into a salt nic. The VG would definitely need to be thinned out with PG (it's all 70 or 80 VG based juice), but could I add a concentration of salt nic to the mix to make it compatible with my pods?

    You will of course drop the flavour % down as you add more nic base - but you are obviously aware of that. If your salt nic base is in pg, that will help adjust the VG/pg ratio.

    You can. But you don’t have to use salts in pods. I’ve used both in my pods. The bigger issue, that you already know, is viscosity. Get your pg/vg close to 50/50 and if you need more nic, you can add whatever type you like.

    I think the reason pods are advertised as salt compatible is that you can use them at a higher level without as much throat hit as FB, and people tend to need more nic in these little devices that don’t give much vapor.

    Really no reason to choose "salt" over "freebase". What nic level do you want to end up at? You might try 48 mg nic (in PG) or just get 100 mg nic, VG and PG and then you can do anything you want (even try DIY)
