What Is Nicotine Calculator? A Good Helper in 2024


Welcome to the world of the nicotine calculator. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned vaper, adding nicotine to your vape requires precision.

A nicotine mixing calculator is a tool used in vaping to blend nicotine with e-liquids precisely. It helps determine the amount of nicotine needed to achieve the desired strength in the final vape juice to tailor your vaping experience.

What is a shortfill?

Shortfills are nicotine-free e-liquids sold in a bottle that is “short-filled” to give you enough area to add your very own nicotine fluid. Generally, shortfills contain 50mL of base liquid and are also designed to make a 3mg e-liquid.

How do shortfills work?

Shortfills are basically a pre-made base liquid of PG and VG, as well as the flavouring of your option. All you have to do is put the nicotine in if you desire it.

  • 50ml shortfill + 10ml nic shot = 60ml of 3mg e-liquid.
  • 100ml shortfill + 2 × 10ml nic shots = 120ml of 3mg e-liquid.

How Do I Mix a Short Fill?

Shortfills, larger than 10ml bottles due to TPD regulations, have childproof lids and a protruding dripper. To mix, open the nicotine-free bottle, remove the pipette, add nicotine from a 10ml bottle, and shake thoroughly for a smooth blend. Let it settle, then vape. Nicotine, flavourless itself, benefits from leaving the uncapped bottle for 10 minutes and storing it in darkness for a few days to enhance flavour infusion like wine aging.

For a 3mg e-Liquid

For a 3mg e-liquid, you combine one portion of 18mg nicotine with every five portions of the base liquid. For a 50ml quantity of nicotine-free e-liquid, add one nic shot.

  • To make 100ml base vape juice into 3mg nic level juice: 100ml base + 20ml nicotine = 120ml of 3mg nicotine vape juice
  • To make 50ml base vape juice into 3mg nic level juice: 50ml base + 10ml nicotine = 60ml of 3mg nicotine vape juice
  • To make 10ml base vape juice into 3mg nic level juice: 10ml base + 2ml nicotine = 12ml of 3mg nicotine vape juice

For a 6mg e-Liquid

For a 6mg e-liquid, you mix one part of 18mg nicotine with every two parts of the flavoured base liquid. For a 40ml quantity of nicotine-free e-liquid, add two nic shots.

  • To make 80ml base vape juice into 6mg nic level juice: 80ml base + 40ml nicotine = 120ml of 6mg vape juice
  • To make 40ml base vape juice into 6mg nic level juice: 40ml base + 20ml nicotine = 60ml of 6mg vape juice
  • To make 8ml base vape juice into 6mg nic level juice: 8ml base + 4ml nicotine = 12ml of 6ml vape juice

Once you’ve decided on your desired strength, the next step is utilizing the nicotine mixing calculator to gauge the required amount of nicotine for your shortfill.

How To Use The Nicotine Calculator?

Please enter your nicotine-free liquid amount, the strength of your nic shot, and the desired potency. Our nicotine calculator below will display the necessary volume of nicotine base for your bottle.

How much nicotine to mix?

Generally, make a 30ml bottle of 3mg e-liquid; you will need 5ml of 18mg nicotine shot.

For a 30ml bottle of 6mg e-liquid, you will need 10ml of 18mg nicotine shot.

How do you calculate nicotine concentration?

If you’re using a nicotine shot that says 1.5%, then 1.5×10=18. Therefore, 1.5% is equal to 15mg.

How much nicotine to add to 100mL to make 6mg?

To create a 6mg e-liquid, you should blend one part of 18mg nicotine with two parts of the flavoured base liquid.

How is nicotine calculated?

To find the total nicotine amount, multiply the nicotine strength (measured in mg per mL) by the volume in mL of the liquid. For instance, filling an 8 mL vape tank with 6 mg/mL e-liquid equals 8 mL multiplied by 6 mg/mL, resulting in 48 mg of nicotine within the tank.
