How to DIY E-Liquid

Electronic Cigarette Liquid is just water, E-Liquid Base, flavorings and some percentage of pure nicotine or some other optional additives. You can make yourself your own E-Liquid easily with the following E-Liquid Materials to save your money and to have your own unique flavor.

Make Your Own Electronic Cigarette Liquid

For making your own electronic cigarette liquid, what you need are the followings:
1. E-Liquid Base: such as Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin . You need to have FOOD GRADE Propylene Glycol (PG) or Vegetable Glycerin (VG) as we provide here. The E-Liquid Base are the ingredients that creates the visible smoke/fog. In fact, this is the ingredient in smoke machine fluid that creates the smoke/fog.
2. E-Liquid Flavorings: You need to have FOOD GRADE, high temperature resistance and water soluble flavorings as we provide here. Other flavorings which have only room temperature resistance and contains either oil or sugars may not be suitable for smoking in a personal vaporizer.
3. Optional additives: such as E-Liquid Nicotine, herbs, or whatever additives for tobacco and herbal recipes.
4. (Optional) Distilled Water: Filtered drinkable water is OK. Other water, such as tap water has too many chemicals to make it healthy to vaporize into your lungs.

You can put about 10%-20% of the flavor concentrate in your E-Liquid Base, depending on the followings:
– the E-Liquid Base,
– the Nicotine density,
– your personal flavoring intensity.

For your convenience, here we provide you the E-Liquid Calculator for you to DIY your own E-Liquid to save your money and to have your own unique flavor, according to the different nicotine density:

With the Empty Bottles and E-Liquid Syrings you can easily control the composition and make you own E-Liquid according to your personal requirement.

For thicker smoke, use less water. While you are using E-Cig in higher temperarue environment or hot season, use less water. If making a solution with additives, then leave out the water and use either a few drops of additive solution or more depending on strength and taste. You will have to experiment!

The flavor strength will be variable with the different E-Liquid Bases and the different nicotine densities. You need to adjust the flavor strength with the different E-Liquid Bases and the different nicotine densities with your personal preference. Normally you just need to put in 6%-8% of the flavoring concentrate in your E-Liquid depending on your personal strength of the flavor and the Nicotine density. For higher nicotine density, use a little more flavoring concentrate.

Remember that the nicotine density listed for e-liquid is the number of milligrams of nicotine per milliliter in the E-Liquid. That means a 10ml bottle of 24mg nicotine e-liquid would have 240mg of nicotine in it (24mg x 10ml). Likewise, a 30ml bottle of 24mg e-liquid would have 720mg of nicotine in it (24mg x 30ml).

Remember successful mixing at home relies on some understanding of the basic principles when mixing your own E-Liquid recipe.

You should never mix in large batches unless you know for certain that you’re going to like the result. It is all too easy to over-dilute your e-liquid if you work on the whole bottleful at once, and ruin it. It is much safer (and cheaper,) to mix up small batches, so if it goes wrong, you can strengthen it with a few more drops, or mix it into a more palatable flavoured juice to use it up. You will also be able to try a lot more flavours with a single bottle if you make small batches.

Unless you like you flavours very strong, you will want to add some inert liquids to dilute your mixtures (these substances are called diluents). You may use the E-Liquid Base, alcohol and/or distilled/deionised water, according to preference (though more than a drop or 2 of water is not advised – if the liquid is too runny, there is a greater risk of it leaking into batteries, and it will produce little vapour.)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are making a nicotine based liquid, there are some things you need to keep in mind. Nicotine is a poison. Too much can be very toxic. Nicotine is an alkaloid found in certain plants, predominantly tobacco, and in much lower quantities in tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and green peppers. When absorbed in small amounts, whether from cigarettes, cigars or E-Cig, nicotine can cause stimulation, a feeling of relaxation, calmness, and alertness. The effects of nicotine can last from minutes to hours. The carcinogenic properties of nicotine in a standalone form (i.e., separated from smoking or chewing tobacco) have not been evaluated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, However current available literature indicates that nicotine in standalone form does not promote the development of cancer in healthy tissue and has no mutagenic properties.

Density of Nicotine

Density of Nicotine

E-Liquid vs Cigarette

One of the most common questions about an electronic cig relates to which e-liquid nicotine strength is equivalent to a particular kind of cigarette that a person smokes. To better answer this question, it is better to understand how much nicotine is contained in the E-Liquid you are inhaling.

We define the density of nicotine inside E-Liquid as follows:

    – Non nicotine: 0 mg nicotine, which equivalents to No Nicotine.

– Low density: 6 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Ultra Light Strength Cigarettes.

– Medium density: 12 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Medium Strength Cigarettes.

– High density: 18 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Regular Strength Cigarettes.

– XHigh density: 24 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Strong Cigarettes.

– XXHigh density: 36 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Very Strong Cigarettes.

– XXXHigh density: 48 mg nicotine, which equivalents to Super Strong Cigarettes.

The nicotine density listed for e-liquid is the number of milligrams of nicotine per milliliter in the E-Liquid. That means a 10ml bottle of 24mg nicotine, e-liquid would have 240mg of nicotine in it (24mg x 10ml). Likewise, a 30ml bottle of 24mg e-liquid would have 720mg of nicotine in it (24mg x 30ml).

Different brands of cigarettes vary in terms of their nicotine content. Normally nicotine constitutes approximately 0.6-3.0% of dry weight of tobacco in a cigarette. Obviously a longer 100ml cigarette has more nicotine in it than a standard or king size 84ml cigarette. For the most part, though, here is, for example, the amount of nicotine that is in a typical 84ml tobacco cigarette:

If you smoke Regular cigarettes, like a Marlboro Red, for instance, there are approximately 1.2mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 24mg of nicotine per pack (1.2mg x 20 cigarettes).

If you smoke Light cigarettes, like a Marlboro Light, for instance, there are approximately 0.7mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 14mg of nicotine per pack (0.7mg x 20 cigarettes).

If you smoke Ultra Light cigarettes, like a Marlboro Ultra Light, for instance, there are approximately 0.5mg of nicotine in each cigarette, or 10mg of nicotine per pack (0.5mg x 20 cigarettes).

When you refill your e-cartridges with e-liquid, you may need to know how much nicotine is contained in your refilling e-liquid. There are approximately 20 drops of e-liquid per milliliter. So, using our 24mg nicotine e-liquid once again as an example, there would be 1.2mg of nicotine per drop (24mg/20 drops). So, if you put three drops of e-liquid onto a e-cartridge (or directly onto the atomizer for those of you that direct-drip), that means you will be taking in 3.6mg of nicotine from the time you start vaping until you top off again.

The amount as well as the feeling of the nicotine absorbed by the body from electronic cigarette smoking depends on many factors, including the density of the nicotine in e-liquid, the electronic cigarette vaporing quantity, the smoking frequency and timing, and the smoking inhaling respiration.

Actually the nicotine in the E-Liquid can not be absorbed completely by the smoker. For instance, if you inhale 1 ml of E-Liquid which contains 24 mg of nicotine, that does not mean that you absorb all the 24 mg of nicotine. You may only absorb about 40-65% of the nicotine according to your personal smoking habit.

It should be noted that, although it is highly 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 a demonstrated sensitivity to nicotine, are pregnant or breastfeeding or who have unstable heart conditions, should discuss the use of any E-Liquid with a doctor before using.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

Our E-CIG products have passed rigorous quality control from our manufacturing. However, You may encounter some problems when you receive the E-Cig. Particualrly due to the severe international shipping shock or very variable environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity etc, some sensible electronic parts may encounter some problems during the usage of E-Cig. You can resolve the problem by yourselves with the following instructions:

Problem Cause Fixing Method Cautions
there is less smoke battery power is not enough bad connection for E-Cigar/E-Cigarillo/E-Pipe: check the battery polarityfor E-Cigarette/E-MiniCig: check the battery connection
recharge the battery or replace the battery
smoking liquid is not enough change the cartridge do not change the cartridge too frequently
add few drops of smoking liquid on the cartridge do not put too much smoking liquid
too much smoking liquid smoking without the cartridge have a break if the atomizer gets too hot
take off the cartridge, blow from the other end do not blow too strong
for E-Cigarette/E-MiniCig: you can take off the atomizer and fling it, some water maybe thrown away take off the battery and do not fling too strong
for E-Cigar/E-Pipe: you can reset it. every time reset should not be beyond 5 seconds
inhale too strong if everything is ok but there is still less smoke, you may not puff too strong do not puff too strong, you may get more smoke with less inhaling
air flow channel is blocked get through the air flow channel do not block air flow channel
there is no smoke battery power is not enough recharge the battery or replace the battery E-Cigarillo does not have the light
bad power contacts clean the contacts or tighten the contacts do not put the battery with the wrong polarity
the switch is always off tap to switch on do not hit too strong
too much smoking liquid smoking without the cartridge; have a break if the atomizer gets too hot
take off the cartridge, blow from the other end do not blow too strong
for E-Cigarette/E-MiniCig: you can take off the atomizer and fling it, some water maybe thrown away take off the battery and do not fling too strong
for E-Cigar/E-Pipe: you can reset it every time reset should not be beyond 5 seconds
bad atomizer if the battery is good but there is still no light, the atomizer should be replaced you can use several batteries and atomizers by exchanging to find out whether or which battery or atomizer is bad
bad battery battery is dead, the battery should be replaced
the light is always on or flash the switch is always on knock softly to switch off do not hit too strong
blow from the inhaler end do not blow too strong
still hot when not in use battery poles are put wrong position the battery in proper polarity direction if the problem persists, you need to replace atomizer.
the switch is too sensible knock softly to switch off
blow from the inhaler end
bad atomizer replace atomizer
the charger light does not change the battery has been charged it is normal when charging, the light is red; when full, the light becomes green. the normal charging time is 3-4 hours.
bad contacts clean the contacts use soft cloth to clean it
tighten the contacts do not tighten too strong
bad battery if the charger is good, the battery should be replaced you can use several batteries or chargers by exchanging to find out whether or which battery or charger is bad.

How to Refill E-Liquid

When you make the shift to electronic cigarettes, you can purchase pre-filled e-cig cartridges or refill your cartridges with e-liquid. By making the choice to refill your own electronic cigarette cartridges instead of throwing them away, you can save a fair bit of money. To refill your e-cig cartridges, you will need to either buy E-Liquid or make your own e-liquid with the E-Liq Materials to use to fill the cartridges. All the electronic cigarettes products can be refilled with the E-Liquid actually. Filling E-Liquid  into the cartridge can be tricky if you are doing this for the first time because most are not designed to be reused. This doesn’t mean that it’s impossible though, if done right then you will be able to smoke your prefered liquid nicotine flavour to your heart’s content. There are generally two ways to do this. The first is the “drip method” and the second is the “injection method”.

1. Drip Method:- Materials needed: E-Liquid, Dripper

This method requires that you open up the cartridge and remove the polyester filling inside the cartridge. Then take a dropper and drip a few drops into the cartridge. Gently place the filling back and wait for the liquid to be soaked up by the filling. Add a few more drops to the filling to make sure it is saturated but not so much that the liquid will accumulate at the top. You may need to push the filling and then add more drops multiple times to ensure that it is completely saturated with the liquid nicotine. Close the cartridge. This method takes time and patience because you have to wait for the filling to be completely saturated.

2. Injection Method:- Materials needed: E-Liquid, Syringe or Injector

The best tool to use for refilling electronic cigarette cartridges and to avoid getting e-liquid all over the place is a syringe. By using a syringe with a needle, you can disperse the e-liquid evenly along the cartridge filler. A syringe also makes it easier for you to extract e-liquid from a bottle. We have the most complete line of Syringes for all your e-liquid refilling needs with the best prices. We are using all these Syringes for our manufacturing in the Cartridges as well as in the E-Liquid flavorings.

How to Refill E-Cig Cartridges with a Syringe?

Step 1: Take the White Rubber Cap off of the end of the cartridge using tweezer or a small screwdriver.

Step 2: Use your syringe and remove e liquid from your bottle. Then, insert the syringe needle into the middle of your e cig cartridge filler until you are near the bottom of the cartridge. For two-piece Cartomizer, you will want to make sure you avoid damaging the atomizer and insert the syringe needle aiming for the mesh that is inside of the cartomizer tube. Depress your syringe plunger slowly while moving the needle. The goal is to ensure an even fill of your e cig cartridge without overfilling.

Step 3: Replace the Electronic Cigarette cartridge rubber cap.

Step 4: Once the cartridge is filled, cap it for later use or install on your electronic cigarette.

Step 5: Put any left-over e liquid back into your e-liquid bottle. You can also put the cap on the syringe and let it remain in the syringe to top off additional cartridges.

Step 6: Wash your syringe by filling it with fresh water and flushing the syringe several times.
