How is Nicotine Strength Measured in E-Juice?

Since Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) such as e-cigarettes and personal vaporizers are a safer nicotine delivery method, an increasing number of combustible cigarette smokers are making the switch to these handy devices. In addition to delivering nicotine without the thousands of noxious chemicals and tar present in smoke, e-cigs allow users to experiment and use different flavors and varying e-liquid strengths when vaping, all while providing them with the comforting hand-to-mouth action that smokers are accustomed to. While choice is always great, understanding the various nicotine concentrations and measurements can be confusing and overwhelming, so in today’s blog post, we will help you understand how e-liquid strengths are calculated, which will help you choose one that is right for you!

Nicotine strength displayed as a percentage

Whether you’re buying your favorite pre-filled flavor cartridges or vape juice bottles, they should all show the corresponding nicotine concentration. At Prime Vapor, we display the e-liquid strength as a percentage of the total volume of e-liquid. You can choose from 0.0% (zero nicotine), 1.2% (minimum nicotine), 2.4% (medium nicotine), and 3.6% (maximum nicotine). What does this mean? 2.4% means that 2.4% of the total e-juice in the bottle is nicotine, and the remaining volume consists of a combination of other ingredients such as VG (vegetable glycerin), propylene glycol (PG), and delicious flavorings.

Nicotine strength displayed as mg/mL

While percentages measure volumes, mg/mL uses both mass and volume. Let’s take an example, 24 mg/mL means that for each milliliter of e-juice (volume), there is 24 mg (mass) of nicotine. If you want to determine the percentage, it’s simple. All you need to do is shift the decimal point to the left once. So 24 mg/mL is 2.4%. Easy as pie!

How to calculate the total amount of nicotine

Calculating the total amount of nicotine that you are purchasing is quite straightforward. All you need is some basic math! Let’s look at an example. If you are buying one of our 18 mL vape juice bottles and you’ve chosen the medium e-liquid strength, 2.4% or 24mg as explained above, just multiply the mg (24) by the total volume (18), which will give you 432 mg of nicotine.

Now that you understand how e-liquid strengths and amounts are measured, help us spread the knowledge by sharing this blog post with your friends and family!
