strength wanted multiplied  by  amount of juice divided by nicotine concentrate strength

for example strength wanted is 3mg
amount of juice is 30ml
nicotine concentrate strength 72mg 

so the maths are 3 multiplied by 30 divided by72 =1.25 
you would need 1.25ml of nicotine concentrate
sorry for writing multiply and divide I cant find the divide symbol on my keyboard
doesnt anyone just use one of the many ejuice calculators that are available? It just feels more safe to me, you can always use your own math / abacus to proof the apps ratios.

That's correct. PG has a preservative effect. Another advantage is it solves nicotine easier ad holds it solved. All a plus when storing. I only buy Nic concentrate in PG.

I have never used one of the ejuice calculators I don't think they were about when I started mixing so everything went in a notebook
I have not used a coil app either the same notebook has all my coil info again I don't think coil apps  were out at the time
I am sure they are very handy apps its just I got used to doing it a different way Good 

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

RE: PG or VG based nicotine when making e liquid
At 3mg nicotine it doesn't really matter which you choose. Nicotine in PG is far easier to handle especially when it is straight from the freezer. I would only use nic in VG for mixes of 12mg/ml and up.

TVF tested battery info to be found here

oh, sorry I didnt mean anything by that. Was just saying thats too complicated for me to remember all the time. For me, at this stage...thats like some equation you need to find that perfect trajectory that will allow you to re-enter the Earths atmosphere in one piecePleasantry
