DIY E-Liquid?

After watching countless videos on Youtube and reading massive amounts of information on the internet I have decided to make my own e-liquid. In Ohio, they are instituting a .10 per ML tax and I usually buy all my juices in 100-120ML bottles so this should pay off pretty quickly. I was a little overwhelmed when watching everyone and the initial investment that this was going to cost. What if I ordered all of these different flavorings and it tasted like dirt?




Getting started with my amazon shopping list as follows. I decided to use 30ML bottles at first just to get a feel of what I am doing. I would hate to trash a bunch of ingredients while just getting my feet wet.

I still needed nicotine and amazon, unfortunately, does not offer nicotine. I found liquid barn and used them for the following.



Flavor Shots are the easiest way for me to get started. Just add your nicotine, VG, and PG to your flavor shot and with a little steeping time you will be good to go.

Find a good online mixing calculator, I use mixejuice.com and follow the recipe. I’ve got my recipe and all of my materials here so, it is now time to mix. Please use caution while handling nicotine it can absorb through your skin. I only use gloves when adding nicotine.

The syringes make it much easier to ensure amounts are more precise when measuring. I also cleaned up the digital scale that I used to use for reloading and it is my preferred way to mix.



Now it is time to wait for my Quik, Ripe Strawberry, Fried Ice Cream and Moon Sugar to steep a few days and see what we ended up with. I went ahead and cleaned out space in the top of the closet to store all my ingredients and nicotine. Not that we have any little ones running around but you can never be too safe. As you can see from the image below I have found a use for those vapetins.

July 2019 VapeTin



 

July’s VapeTin has arrived and I decided to share its contents with anyone who may be interested on the interwebs. I must say that I am very impressed and would highly recommend VapeTins if you are looking into a monthly or just a onetime assortment of E-liquids and/or hardware. I did change my hardware preference to RTA’s only. If you are interested please follow this link. My subscription is setup up just like this (VapeTins Signature Tin – 3MG Flavor Preference: Fruits, Desserts, Candy, Beverages, Staff Pick Hardware Preference: RTA Accessories: Cotton, Staff Pick Recurring Order: Every 1 Month(s) and for the month of July, I received the following items.

July’s Contents were as follows. I linked some of the items just to get a rough value of the tin. 

The total cost of the VapeTin was $81.98 delivered to my door. While the retail value from the links (where applicable) added up to $88.84 which does not include a few of the items (see pics below), tax, or shipping costs. Not to mention I can always find a use for a decent tin and I really like getting the new flavors to try out. Overall I am impressed with July’s tin and will be reviewing the E-liquids very soon. I do wish there was a way to prefer finishes on the hardware or mods, I understand that they could not allow you to only pick one finish, but I honestly don’t see my self ever wanting a seven-color anything.

First Thangs First BY DEM THANGS LIQUID

Their flavor profile is as follows.

Fresh strawberries and bananas sliced up into a cup of creamy yogurt

80% VG

My thoughts.

This one is exactly as advertised, it is a good vape and it seems that your device will dictate which flavor is dominant.

June 2019 VapeTin



 

June’s VapeTin has arrived and I decided to share its contents with anyone who may be interested on the interwebs. I must say that I am very impressed and would highly recommend them if you are looking into a monthly or just a onetime assortment of E-liquids and/or hardware. If you are interested please follow this link. My subscription is setup up just like this (VapeTins Signature Tin – Flavor Preference: Fruits, Desserts, Candy, Beverages Hardware Preference: RDA, RTA Accessories: Cotton, Handmade Coils) and for the month of June, I received the following items. Please note that I have changed my shipping dates and will receive July’s tin around the 1st of the month and may change the hardware to RTA’s only. I am still undecided at the time of posting this.

First of all, I was shocked that when I looked at the packing list to find a handwritten message that said, ” Welcome to the Family and Thank You.” Very few companies do this anymore.

June’s Contents were as follows. I linked some of the items just to get a rough value of the tin. 

The total cost of the VapeTin was $76.98 delivered to my door. While the retail value from the links (where applicable) added up to $85.88 which does not include a few of the items (see pics below), tax, or shipping costs. Not to mention I can always find a use for a decent tin and I really like getting the new flavors to try out. Overall I am impressed with June’s tin and will be reviewing the E-liquids very soon. I do wish there was a way to prefer finishes on the hardware or mods, I understand that they could not allow you to only pick one finish, but I honestly don’t see my self ever wanting a seven-color anything.

Yellow Bird by Bluebird

Flavor Profile

Lemon Cheesecake Corn Puffs

 

My thoughts. NOT GOOD!

I am not a fan of this one at all your mileage may vary. I am pretty sure it is the cheesecake that is killing it for me. Reminds me of an out of date danish/pastry with lemon filling in a sweaty bag that may or may not have sat out in the sun while camping.

OCCULA 24MM RDA

Occula RDA By Twisted Messes & Augvape

My thoughts on this RDA are as follows. I was torn on whether to purchase it or not but since it came in my May 2019 VapeTin I had to give it a try.



  • Gold plated 510 can be used on a hybrid mod.
  • Very nice texture on the cap, but it could be a little better it can slip in your fingers when adjusting the air flow.
  • The logo looks very nice and does not take away from the addy.
  • The Bell is slightly curved and has hard stops in either direction. I have no idea why more companies do not incorporate hard stops on their RDA’s.
  • Single or dual coil. I have no idea why you would want to run this in a single coil configuration. 
  • 5.5-6mm deep juice well
  • The Deck has an awesome clamp system that is captive with hex, Phillips, or flat head screws that makes it extremely easy to put your coils in.
  • *Con – The airflow holes are a little low for squonking, but you could do it if you were careful.
  • *Con – Airflow can be somewhat finicky and whistle.
  • *Con – Does not come with a 510 drip tip adapter or coils.
  • *Con – 810 drip tip while it looks very nice it sits very low and will get hot when chain vaping or vaping at high wattages with low ohm builds.
  • *Con -The O rings are very tight.

2019 May VapeTins Signature Tin

 

 

 

Rogue American Pie E-Liquid



I received Rogue American Pie E-Liquid in my May 2019 VapeTin and decided to post my thoughts. We used the Goon 25MM addy and the Voopoo Drag 2 for the testing. The bottle says this for a flavor profile,” This original, all-American flavor has apple pie filling with a warm, flaky crust and a dash of cinnamon.

  • My thought is that it has a real apple flavor NOT candy-like at all.
  • There may have been a hint of crust.
  • It does seem to have some warming agent when vaped through the RDA. I did not notice this with the Zeus X at all.
  • Cinnamon flavor while very mild can be overpowering if you chain vape.
  • Girlfriend says it tastes like Apple Jacks.

Simple E-fruit, Passion Fruit Coconut Pineapple

I received Simple E-fruit, Passion Fruit Coconut Pineapple E-Liquid in my May 2019 VapeTin and decided to post my thoughts. We used the Drop Dead Rabbit for an addy and the Captain PD270 for the testing. No flavor profile on the packaging. I thought this on had a hint of root beer I cannot explain it. It is not terrible but I wouldn’t go out and just buy it. My girlfriend says it tastes like Faygo cream soda.

Tuglyfe | Rainbow



I received Tuglyfe | Rainbow in my May 2019 VapeTin and decided to post my thoughts. We used the Occula RDA for an addy and the Lost Vape Paranormal 250C for the testing. No flavor profile was on the bottle my thoughts on this E-liquid are that it has candy type sweet taste that I cannot put my finger on. It is not terrible but my girlfriend compares it to putting an assortment of Jolly Ranchers in your mouth all at the same time.
