Trying Not To Waste Juice
I have a couple of questions, so I apologize if this gets a bit long winded...
I started out with a Halo Triton which I love and will still use for when I am with non vaping friends and for ease of portability.  I started at 18mg nic with that, but currently happy at 12mg.  
I finally got my mod working the way I want it to, perfect draw, power, so on and so forth.  I recently bought a couple of juices with a lower nic level because I was informed that due to the large amount inhaled with a mod that my nic level should be lower.  I figured since I was using 12mg in my Triton, that 6mg would be a comparable amount.  However, the flavors I liked were not available in 6, so I purchased 3mg.  Seems ok, but I am not sure if I am vaping more because of the lower nic or because the juice tastes so good lol!
I would like to use my mod more, now that it is all figured out  I wanted to buy 0mg nic of the same flavor to mix with my 12mg nic to bring it down to 6mg in order to avoid wasting juice.  
Anyway, was my calculation correct?  If I am using 12mg in my Triton, would 6mg be comparable in my mod?  I am using a Sigelei 75w TC at 12 watts with a Nautilus Mini and I  am very happy with my setting.  Or would 6mg be too much nic for me?  I know that is it very subjective, that everyone is different, but I would love some feedback.

Hi darkangel,

Actually that's a good idea and the right way to do it Good2 by mixing 12mg with 0mg in a 50/50 mix you will have a 6mg mix without losing any flavour.

At 12 Watts I would think you'll be fine at 6mg but as you say, you may end up vaping more than you did before Smile

RE: Trying Not To Waste Juice
i used a similar aproach my self , but cut the 12 by 1/3 to get 9mg.
for me reducing nic by 3mg every 6 weeks or so has been efective and for the most part has been fairly comfortable .

RE: Trying Not To Waste Juice
Hi - It is a good idea as has been stated - what I would add is - have you tried vaping the Nautilus Mini at around 9W if it is the 1.8 ohm coil - 12W seems a wee bit high to get the best flavour even if you are using the 1.6 ohm coil. This is just a suggestion from someone who uses the Nautilus and the mini 90% of the time and has tried every setting available.[Image: smile.gif] Try it on the second largest air vent at 9W you might be pleasantly surprised. Enjoy.

RE: Trying Not To Waste Juice
You're correct in thinking that you should cut the nicotine down a bit when you're using a more powerful mod, but I wouldn't go down all the way to 3mg for sure. The 6mg would probably be better. The main things that determine how much nicotine you need are personal preference and the power you're using. The Nautilus mini is not a very powerful tank by any means, and I think about 10-12 watts is about right for it. Just for comparison's sake, I'll tell you what I use: when I'm using my Nautilus mini, I use 12mg at about 11W when I use a more powerful tank I use 3mg at 75W. That's a huge difference in power and it uses a lot more juice, so I need the lower nicotine in the more powerful tanks. 

All that to say, if it works for you, go with it. Personally, I wouldn't drop the nicotine down very much (if at all) because the Nautilus isn't drastically more powerful than the Triton, but as I said, it boils down to personal preference more than anything. If it works for you, do it! Smile
