As pod mods continue their rise on dominating the vaping industry, we’re seeing a lot of diehard sub-ohm lovers making the switch at last. One of the greatest appeals of the pod mod setup is salt-based nicotine, which allows the user to enjoy a smooth yet potent nicotine experience.
If you’re an experienced vaper, you might be interested in producing your own salt nic e-liquids from scratch. After all, DIY vaping allows you to save lots of money while exploring your unique flavor preferences as well as your creativity.
When it comes to making nic salt e-juice from scratch, it’s very important that you understand how to balance the amount of vegetable glycerin (VG) with propylene glycol (PG). We’re gonna help you figure out how to create the perfect ratio for a smooth, tasty and flawless vape.
Which Ratio is Best for Salt-Based Nicotine E-Liquid?
The rule of thumb is that nic salt e-liquid vapes best at a 50/50 VG/PG ratio. This particular ratio seems to preserve all of the satisfying qualities of nicotine salts that make our vaping experience so pleasurable.
Why is This Ratio So Important?
Nicotine salts seem to perform best at a 50/50 ratio because they can feel too harsh or too weak if the base is different. Plus, because you’re using a low-wattage pod mod when vaping e-liquids made with salt nicotine, this ratio best accommodates the output settings of your vaping device.
The beauty of DIY vaping is that it allows you to experiment in order to figure out the e-juice formula that’s most satisfying. Therefore, we’re not going to tell you that you can’t deviate from a 50/50 ratio. It’s just that most DIYers agree that this base is the gold standard.
How Do I Achieve a Balanced Ratio?
Assuming you already know how to create a batch of DIY nic salt e-liquid from scratch, creating a 50/50 ratio is really as easy as it gets. It just requires equal parts VG and PG. Make sure that you carefully measure each ingredient in order to be exact. Then, you can add your salt-based nicotine and your flavoring ingredients. Remember, when making this type of batch, you want to keep the percentage of flavoring at about ten percent. Otherwise, it can interfere with the nicotine as well as the consistency of your juice, making it difficult to enjoy.
Try out your new 50/50 salt nic e-juice batch and decide if you’re satisfied. If it doesn’t meet your standards, feel free to deviate slightly. We don’t recommend doing a Max VG nic salt liquid as it won’t be compatible with a pod mod and it may not even vape well altogether.
Also, keep in mind that certain advanced pod mods might require a slightly different ratio because of different output settings, which in turn decides what type of cartridge and more importantly, coils are being used.
Enjoy Your Salt Nicotine E-Liquid Creations!
By creating a batch of salt nic e-juice with a 50/50 base, you’ll be able to enjoy a smooth inhale, the perfect amount of flavor and that dazzling punch of nicotine.
