    That's what I've been using. I like the bowl that comes with it as well. I ruined my previous scale when the top came off my VG and completely engulfed it.

    I remember that. I also remember the original Blob. Just don't ask me to remember what happened when, Oh LOOK! a squirrel!

    I made my first mix using a scale. My only question is how I used syringes for the last 4 years. Mixing is fun again!

    Welcome to Scale Watchers, Brian. Mixing will be something you look forward to again as well as it'll be less hassle, more fun-time. :)

    Agreed! :cheers:

    Another option would be to tare the scale with the empty syringe, then just read the scale directly after sucking up your flavor and reweighing the syringe. :)

    Personally, I'd draw and weigh several milliliters of flavoring, to reduce your margin of error for calculating specific gravity. Let's say you can measure with +/-0.1mL accuracy. If you draw 1mL, your margin of error could be as much as 10% of your total volume, but if you draw 10mL, the maximum error is only 1%. So measure and weigh 10mL of flavor, then divide the total weight of the flavoring by 10 to give you a more accurate estimate of its density. If you don't have any large syringes, a graduated pipet and a small beaker work well for this. A small graduated cylinder would do as well.

    I use ejuice me up.
    You can get nic and everything else from ECX to get you going(free shipping over $59.99). https://www.ecigexpress.com/
    BCF is great too, but no nic. http://www.bullcityflavors.com/
    After you get going there are more options, but to keep it simple and avoid multiple shipping cost, I'd go with ECX on your first order.
    You'll need(IMO at least 30ml bottles) and these are great for PG & VG
    I use a clean dropper bottle for my nic. I only vape 1mg now so I get 36mg/vg base last me a loooong time.
