    Well done Rupert and Noe. You covered every aspect of it.
    One thing i think is important to note especially to newbies looking to purchase and or mix nicotine into their liquids is;
    You may see on websites eg. Hiliq that you can purchase 10% nicotine or 20% nicotine liquid.
    These percentages refer to;
    10% = 1000ml (1 litre)of 100mg.
    20% = 1000ml (1 litre)of 200mg.

    10% DOES NOT MEAN MIX YOUR LIQUID 10% NICOTINE.

    When using calculations for these types of liquids keep in mind you are using 100mg or 200mg liquid.
    I for one was a little confused when i first saw this but after a quick bit of research found it easy to work out the ratio.

    Thanks @Steve Thomas - If you don't mind, I might edit the OP to include this info?

    Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread so far - I feel that discussing this topic is a great way to get both the experienced and new to DIY (or even doubler mixing) to better understand the ins and outs of what we are doing.

    I have now also changed the images in the OP (after quite a bit of technical difficulty at my end, but that's another story) to JPEG's, so fingers crossed they should work across devices!
    If someone on TAPTALK can let me know if they are displaying correctly now, I would highly appreciate :)

    Working on my PC too now :)

    GJ Rupert.

    It may pay to mention the %'s in this line :
    2) The end concentration you want your liquid to be (also in milligrams per millilitre). - typically 3, 6, 12, 18, or 24 milligrams per millilitre. This tutorial will use 3mg/mL, but this value can simply be subbed out in the below equations.
    By adding the % in next to them thus:
    typically 3, 6, 12, 18, or 24 milligrams per millilitre, these strengths can also be known as percentages as such - 0.3% 0.6% 1.2% 1.8% 2.4%.
