Welcome to Vaping Hardware’s Nicotine Shot and Shortfill Calculator GUIDE! This is simply a brief explanation of how the calculator works and how to use it properly…
To skip this guide and start calculating, here is the Nicotine Shot and Shortfill Calculator…
If you’ve got any questions this guide doesn’t answer then feel free to contact us here!
This section breaks down the variable inputs required to create your e-liquid.
If you select ‘e-liquid’, the Nicotine Shot Calculator will tell you how much nicotine to add to your pre-mixed nicotine free e-liquid. Our Nicotine Shot Calculator will also allow you to increase the nicotine strength of your current e-liquid.
If you’ve purchased a ‘shortfill’ bottle (e.g. a 100ml bottle with 80ml of nicotine free e-liquid), select ‘shortfill’ and input the size of your bottle. Hit ‘calculate’ and we’ll tell you how much nicotine you need to add to your shortfill bottle to reach your desired nicotine strength.
Nicotine Base Strength:
Essentially, this is the strength of your nicotine. This is specified as either a percentage (%) or as milligrams per millilitre (mg/ml). The most commonly available strengths outside of Europe are 56 mg/ml or 72 mg/ml, however in some cases as high as 100 mg/ml. Within Europe, the maximum nicotine strength is limited to 20 mg/ml but typically the majority of manufacturers are providing 18mg/ml. Please input the correct strength in order for you to determine how much is required for your specific target nicotine strength.
Existing Nicotine Strength:
This is the strength of your e-liquid, which thanks to the new TPD regulations will most commonly default to zero. If you already have pre-mixed e-liquid at a specified nicotine strength but want to increase it, input the desired strength in this field.
Target Nicotine Level:
This is the final nicotine strength of your desired mix.
Amount of Zero Nicotine E-Liquid:
This menu appears when you select ‘E-Liquid’ from the drop down menu under the heading Type; the amount of zero nicotine e-liquid you have that you wish to add nicotine to.
Amount (Shortfill Bottle Size):
This menu appears when you select ‘Shortfill’ from the drop down menu under the heading Type; the amount of e-liquid you’ve purchased in a shortfill bottle. This shortfill bottle is a pre-mixed e-liquid of PG/VG/Flavour that’s short-filled with e-liquid allowing nicotine shot(s) to be added.
Calculate and Reset Buttons:
Once you have input your desired parameters, hit ‘Calculate’ and this’ll bring up the ‘Result’ quantities. Hitting ‘Reset’ will clear the input parameters to their default values.
The results section covers the amount of nicotine required to add to your e-liquid to create your desired mix. The results show the amount of nicotine to add in ml, the number of 10ml bottles (Nicotine Shots) required and the total amount of e-liquid you’ll end up having made.
Note: The 10ml number of bottles (Nicotine Shots) is only specific if you are using a ‘Nicotine Base Strength’ of 18mg/ml.
And there you have it folks! We hope you found our Nicotine Shot and Shortfill Calculator Guide helpful! Any problems or questions, feel free to get in touch! Happy mixing!
