    Adding water to the liquid?

    I see that many vapors and DIYers add some distilled water to their juice to make the nicotine less strong, do u think this is a viable solution?
    If yes, how much water exactly is appropriate to be added in the different scenarios?

    10% of water is normal in obtaining a, "Stealth Vape". Will reduce the vaper upon exhaling.
    The amount of nicotine (mg.) can be maintained by reducing the PG and/or VG by the percentage of water.

    I could see the advantage to lower the mg. on e-Liquid which has been bought already mixed. On the aspect of DIY e-Liquid the advantage could provide more fluidity of high VG based e-Liquids.

    I have seen tips suggesting that adjusting the water amounts in the juice can actually alter its strength and its other attributes but in my view, what you are saying, Taurus, is the better option - adjusting the PG/VG amounts by keeping the water about 10% of the whole juice, sounds more useful to me at least

    I done some quick figuring on how an addition of water or another ingredient (other than Nicotine), can affect the mg. of e-Liquid.
    If my math is off please post the correct information.

    If someone is inclined to add water and/or PG/VG to lower the mg., the flavoring will become weaker (unless flavor is the addition ingredient).

    10% of 30 ml. = 3 ml.

    Having a 30 ml. bottle of 18 mg. e-Liquid
    Adding 1 milliliter of water = 17.42 mg.
    Adding 2 milliliters of water = 16.88 mg.
    Adding 3 milliliters of water = 16.36 mg.

    Having a 30 ml. bottle of 12 mg. e-Liquid
    Adding 1 milliliter of water = 11.61 mg.
    Adding 2 milliliters of water = 11.25 mg.
    Adding 3 milliliters of water = 10.90 mg.

    Having a 30 ml. bottle of 10 mg. e-Liquid
    Adding 1 milliliter of water = 9.67 mg.
    Adding 2 milliliters of water = 9.38 mg.
    Adding 3 milliliters of water = 9.09 mg.

    I'm sorry, was very awful on my part to overlook posting the formula.

    Nicotine mg. * ( current ml. / adjusted ml. ) = adjusted mg.

    12 * ( 30 / 31 ) = 11.61 mg.

    These figures sound like making sense and I think I should test some of the different reations and mgs. Of course, it will be difficult to calculate precisely everything but at least, I can get some approximate idea about the figures here and the formula as a whole

    Re: Adding water to the liquid?

    A reasonable quantity of water is no problem. I avoid PG in my e liquids and normally I have around 20% DW (Distilled water) in my VG e juices.

    Re: Adding water to the liquid?

    Adding water to any mix will affect the taste, no matter what, yet it's not generally awful. I vape at 30pg 70vg I was interested and made a max VG mix with 15% water once, it was about the same as what I generally like, possibly somewhat unique. The flavor was weaker than normal, but not too noticeable.
