The Nicotine Strength Guide for E liquids
A single tobacco cigarette stick contains 8 to 20 milligrams (mg) of Nicotine (depending on the brand), but mere around 1.2 mg is actually absorbed by the body when you actually smoke it.
A standard pack of cigarette therefore contains around 24 mgs of Nicotine (20 sticks) while actually smoking it. (1.2 mg * 20 sticks = 24mg / pack )
The nicotine density mentioned for E-liquid indicates the number of milligrams of Nicotine per milliliter in the E-Liquid i.e. mg/ml.
For instance:  
When 12mg Nicotine indication is shown on an E-liquid bottle, it means it has 12 mgs of Nicotine for per 1 ml of E-liquid. Hence a 10 ml bottle will have 120 mgs of Nicotine. That is 10 * 12 = 120
That means a 10ml bottle of 24mg nicotine e-liquid would have 240mg of nicotine in it. i.e. 24mg * 10ml = 240 mgs.
Similarly, a 30ml bottle of 24mg e-liquid would have 720mg of nicotine in it. i.e. 24mg * 30ml = 720 mgs


Bottle Size                                                       Total Nicotine
(24 mg Nicotine) 


        10                                                      240
        20                                                      480
        30                                                      720
        40                                                      960
        50                                                     1200[font=Arial, sans-serif]al Ni[/font]
Bottle Size(24 
The same way, a 10 ml bottle of 18 mg e-liquid would have 180 mgs of nicotine in it.
 i.e. 18 mg * 10 ml = 180 mgs

Bottle Size                                                    Total Nicotine

(24 mg Nicotine) 


        10                                                      180
        20                                                      360

        30                                                      540

        40                                                      720
 
        50                                                      900
Total Nicoti
The same way we can calculate mgs per ml for any strength of Nicotine.

Drops of E-liquids per ml of Nicotine


There are approximately 20 drops of E liquid per 1ml. So using a 12 mg Nicotine E-liquid there would be 0.6 mgs of Nicotine per drop. That is 12 / 20 = 0.6mgs/drop
Likewise 24mg Nicotine E-Liquid would have 1.2mgs of Nicotine per drop i.e. 24 mg / 20 drops = 1.2 mgs/dr

    
Total Nicotine                                   Nicotine per drop

Concentration (mg)           

        0                                                0

        6                                               0.3

        8                                               0.4

       12                                              0.6
       16                                              0.8

       24                                              1.2

       36                                              1.8

       54                                              2.7
Total Nicotine concentration  (mg)
Now talking in terms of Nicotine in ml, if you, for instance take 12mg Nicotine strength andpour 1.6 ml of E liquid into your electronic cigarette clearomizer, it means you will take in 19.2 mgs of Nicotine in total from the time you start vaping until you fill it in again.
That is 1.6 * 12 = 19.2 mgs.
1.6ml / 20 drops= 0.08mg per drop


It is equivalent to almost a pack of regular tobacco cigarettes a day. But of course it won’t have the same quantity of tar and other harmful chemicals that a tobacco cigarette contains.
A regular tobacco cigarette stick contains about 4000 chemicals and 51 of them are known to be carcinogenic which causes cancer.  
On average 10ml of E liquid lasts about at least 3-5 days. So assuming you're a grave smoker and would finish up a 10 ml bottle of an E-liquid in 3 days, vaping 3.3 ml of E-liquid per day would bear a *Nicotine strength* of about 2 packs of cigarettes a day.
It ought to be noted that, even though Nicotine is addictive, no studies have shown nicotine to be a carcinogen.
It is simply the fix that cigarette smokers crave. It is recommended that those who have an established sensitivity to nicotine, pregnant or breastfeeding women or who have unstable heart conditions, should talk about the use of any E-Liquid with a doctor before using it and even your doctor permits you to use it.

RE: The Nicotine Strength Guide for E liquids
However nicotine is absorbed less efficiently from cigs than from fire sticks at least partially because of the lower temperatures involved.

RE: The Nicotine Strength Guide for E liquids
According to my doctor nicotine has an effect on the arteries.    He was a 40 a day smoker until 10 years ago when he finally gave up. because he had to have  bypass surgery on his legs because of constricted arteries.  I think he knows what he is talking about.  

 Good job it's very easy to wean yourself off nicotine with vaping

Hi Stickle - It's not that easy - not in my case anyway - I have not even tried to be honest - I like vaping so much. Nicotine increases the bloodflow as does caffeine therefore any artery problems are put under pressure, the artery problems that your doctor had were caused by real cigarettes and the tars involved not the nicotine. Caffeine and nicotine go to the same brain receptor and 'stirs' it up - a lot of research is going on into how this may help dementia related problems - both these drugs are stimulents pure and simple.

I hope you are right.

RE: The Nicotine Strength Guide for E liquids
Nicotine has the same affect on the body as caffeine.  Nicotine AND caffeine cause blood vessels to constrict, increasing blood pressure, alertness, pupil reaction, and even skin sensitivity.  There have been numerous long term studies that all state that nicotine is about as bad for you as caffeine.

That said...ANYTHING over 18mg is too much.  Responsible retailers won't sell anything higher than that.  Just because our industry is currently unregulated, it doesn't mean we need to take advantage for a buzz.

I heard the nicotine / caffeine comparison loads of times, but never realized they were as bad in the same way.

What studies about nicotine and caffeine are you referring to ?

Yes even I didn't know about both of them being harmful the same way. 
Can you give some references ?

Look up any online pharmaceutical info site - they both have uses in medicine.

Nicotine being bad for you is a misconception this study show the good it could do as a treatment
