How to mix nicotine into your e-liquid

Adding nicotine to your e-liquid is a frustrating but necessary part of vaping in Australia. It’s not difficult but there are some risks involved. If you’re not really sure how to go about it please read this short guide to avoid mishandling or consuming too much nicotine.

Nicotine at 100mg concentration is extremely poisonous and needs to be handled very carefully. It should be stored somewhere that’s not accessible to children or pets and it should be clearly labelled as a poison.

Ideally you should wear protective gloves and glasses when handling nicotine at this concentration. If you've purchased nicotine from our store you would have also received a free syringe. This will allow you to measure out the exact amount of nicotine you'll need.

To determine how much nicotine to add to your e-liquid you need to know two bits of information:

  • The nicotine strength you want to vape at, and;
  • the bottle size of e-liquid.

Plug those two values into the nicotine calculator below to work out how many mls of nicotine you need to add to your e-liquid.

Note: This calculator assumes a couple of things. Firstly, you're using a 100mg nicotine base. It also assumes that the e-liquid bottle is full. If, for example, you have a 60ml bottle but it only contains 30ml of liquid then these calculations won’t be correct.

If you’re new to vaping and you’re not sure what nicotine strength to start with, check out our article What Nicotine Strength Should You Be Vaping?

As an example, let’s say I want to vape at 6mg and I have a full 60ml bottle of Apple Pie e-liquid. Based on the calculator I would need to add 3.6ml of nicotine to my e-liquid.

I now simply use the syringe to measure out 3.6ml of nicotine and inject it into the bottle of e-liquid.

Depending on how full your e-liquid bottle is and how much nicotine you need to add you may need to tip a small amount of e-liquid out to make room for the nicotine. 

Close the lid then shake the e-liquid. Now you're done and it’s ready to vape.

I hope that helps to make this process less confusing, but as always if you have any further questions please get in touch at

Happy vaping!
