Title: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on October 02, 2013, 09:01:55 PM
PLEASE READ ALL THIS BEFORE ADDING YOUR NAME TO THE LIST

Nicotine is a hazardous substance and should be treated with caution at all times. If handled incorrectly it can cause serious injury and in extreme cases has the potential to END lives. If you have kids please keep it out of their reach, and the same applies to pets & your dear old grandmother who thinks it's gin. Myself and E-cig-reviews.com will not be held liable should you mishandle this stuff and injury or death occurs as a result

Remember at 72mg this stuff will need cutting down before using to vaporise. I won't do this on your behalf.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So what are we buying?

A 28.5Kg drum of nicotine. (30kg including the drum.. won't be making that mistake again!)

It will be 72mg Propylene Glycol base.

What will I get?

The nicotine will be in 1 litre bottles, 1Kg should equate to about 970ml If I recall correctly, but it will be weighed anyway.

How will it be sent?

UK Mail

How long between paying and getting it?

Last time it was 6-8 weeks, the manufacturer has stated 4-6 weeks this time. My advice is allow for 8 weeks ish.

Where is it coming from?

The UK. Which means all the associated consumer rights :-) So I'm not overly concerned that the business would like paying by BACS payment which I would be if it were another country I were ordering in.

COST

Ah the fun bit eh?

It's working out at £56.85 per Kilo before delivery

This includes the nicotine, the bottles, the boxes, printing costs, sellotape (oh man I love the tape!), petrol for my car.

Extra bottle?

Based on the dimentions I have to keep to for postage if anyone wants an extra bottle it'll be £1.41 and you'll need to let me know whether you want 1L or 500ml.

What about delivery cost?

This is variable depending on where you live, I'll be asking for post codes before I take any payment so I can let you know total cost including delivery before you decide to proceed.

If you wanna save some money and you're close to West Yorkshire you're welcome to collect, but let me know this is what you'll be doing at the time you send the email you'll be asked to send after payment.

What about payment?

Payment I'll be wanting when the list completes, before I make the order.

You can make payment any way you like, so long as the amount I receive is  the amount for your order. If you want to pay by Payal, please factor in any Paypal charges so the amount I receive is the full amount after charges. There will however be a few payment options on the email, choose whichever suits you best.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be prompt with responses. If you can't make payment, say so, i'll offer it up to someone else.

Therefore, each package will contain a small section of bubble wrap. Which is far more fun. ;) (Hope I've enough if the second list completes eek)

Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on October 16, 2013, 10:25:11 PM
OK, I've been doing some searching, costing and research.

Would anyone object to the second list being sourced from China?

£35 a litre after shipping, customs, vat, bottling and other costs then shipping on top. 70mg instead of 72mg but, it's a litre so it'd be 30ml extra.

I've spoken to a few people who've had their stuff before (I have too but I didn't realise they did it in quantity) and it's decent nic.

I'm happy to continue ordering from the UK place, but I suspect they're getting it from China/India anyway as they're the major producers.
If we get people from both sides of the fence I'm happy to split lists etc

Just offering it as an option for consideration, it'd be remiss of me not to at the price.

Thoughts?
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: Cerberus on October 16, 2013, 10:38:55 PM
That's a good price :)


Keep my 500ml and get me 1litre :)

Bear in mind shipping to NI is about £15, but I can fit 4 in a package. Oh, and have a look at Ged's TJuice Red Astaire costing ;)
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: spyder on October 17, 2013, 12:11:30 PM
I'm not 100% sure. I bought some china sourced nic from LF once upon a time and it had the weirdest background taste ever.

Another thing to take into consideration is the prices you see now may not necessarily be what you'll end up paying.  Can't see it being marked as a gift.
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on October 17, 2013, 12:14:39 PM
I would be putting in the order notes that it should be marked value correctly.

The price I worked out accounts for Customs & VAT.

Another thought I had was to buy a smaller bottle and send people samples to try before deciding. Of course there would be a small cost to this. Couple of quid each?
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: itsmeitis on October 17, 2013, 12:18:17 PM
from LF

I reckon we probably found the problem ...  ;)

Sorry I saw that mentioned in your original post after I had posted.

A sample sounds good although it would hold up the process somewhat. I don't mind a delay as I am well stocked from the last run.

As most seem to be fine with it I'll roll with it and give it a shot, let's face it, the price is right and it'll most likely be fine. If it disagrees with me I can bottle it up in 100ml's and pass some on to my vaping buddies at a bargain price to recoup my costs.

Keep me in @ 1 KG or Litre. Cheers Ric.

Post by: Daddy Cool on October 17, 2013, 11:02:21 PM
I'm a newbie to buying nic in this way and up until now have only used pre-mixed liquids , so will trust your judgement entirely Ric and will go with the consensus , however , the UK sourced nic that was bought in the last group buy still works out at approx one third of the price of nic base that most of online ecig suppliers sell it for which is a massive saving already and its tried and tested by your good selves .............. Do you think it's worth buggering about with something that you know works for the sake of £25 ,which incidentally is what I used to spend in half a week when I was on the demon weed !!! The 970 ml bottle of nic will make me 133 x 30ml 18mg bottles of e liquid and at 30ml a week thats over two years worth . Thats enough of a saving for me  :)
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on October 17, 2013, 11:09:08 PM
Well, in short yes, but that's given the fact we've already used it.

If we hadn't already tried small bottles from the supplier I'd be a bit more edgy about it.

To me it's a no brainer and the only reason I didn't check this particular supplier earlier is I didn't realise they did UK legal (strength) nic in the kind of quantity we need.
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: Daddy Cool on October 17, 2013, 11:19:00 PM
Sorted....... If you've had it before and it's decent stuff I'm happy with that especially at the price. Thanks for the effort  :) The second list should push on a bit now I reckon.

I'll be going through updating this on Sunday. No further requests to be added will be accepted after 12pm Sunday.

I would appreciate if anyone who hasn't responded to the China/UK question could respond by then.

Those who haven't will be kept on a UK only list and I'll only open this list back up again after I've finished this round of nic buying/bottling/sending.

Right then, here's where we are with list 2.

A few questions were asked by a member, so I've contacted the China supplier to ask some questions. It being the weekend I'm awaiting a reply. There's a few certificates I want from them. More for others peace of mind than mine, but perfectly justifiable to ask those questions. If they reply with all the info I want then all good, if not then I'll be probably going UK nic only.

I'm gonna give them until Friday to reply.

Not because I think the China nic is bad or owt. Simply because they haven't got back to me on the one simple question I asked.

Saving money is a nice idea, but not at the expense of trying to get a response from 1/2 way round the globe if things go wrong.

There's a few to add to the list, I'll do that tomorrow. I've had the WY meet today and I'm away at a vineyard harvesting grapes tomorrow, so it'll probably be late evening when I get it all updated.

Sorry to those who hoped for the savings China, but I really can't justify taking the level of risk involved given lack of comms

Makes sense. For the small savings involved it's not really worth the aggro if things don't go as planned. The price on the UK sourced nic is a good enough saving for me.

Cheers, Ric.

These are useful for when you step up batch sizes -

Up to 100ml. In the Wilko homebrew section  ;D

used to do home brew years ago but had totally forgot about using brew eqiupment. also didn't know wilkos did home brew stuff, i'll check them out. good call stewrat.
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: Stewrat on November 19, 2013, 04:50:08 PM
It's not accurate enough for small batches, but fine for 50 ml and above. Also handy if you pre mix your nic + PG + VG in advance,

Good luck!

You probably won't need your old hydrometer  ;)

There are a few good flavour vendors; 28 vapers later, leisure liquids, lt cigs and alchemist's cupboard are some that I have bought from.  Not forgetting the one and only Tjuice perveyers of most excellent concentrates :D

as Ric is about to commence his ordering of bottles to decant to, and boxes to post them off in, i'd suspect it will be the supplier doing the initial despatching as mentioned. ;)

and plus one (+1) to Funkybunch's recommendations regarding those flavour suppliers - 8)

Great news, Im almost out of juice so the timing is perfect.

As I never had more than 100ml of nicotine base I need to decide on the best way of storing it. I think if I split it into 100ml bottles and store it away to avoid exposure to air every time I make a mix. What are the rules on freezing? I have seen some varied opinions on this. Anyone here freezes the nic? What effect does it have on the quality afterwards?
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on December 02, 2013, 06:20:24 PM
Change of plan, took longer than I thought, just put the bottle labels on. Will get them booked in tonight with the delivery company and drop them off with them tomorrow night.
Title: Re: Nicotine Group Buy List Take 2
Post by: ukric on December 03, 2013, 12:01:45 AM
Nicotine received - check
Nicotine bottled - check
Bottles labelled - check
Boxes made up - check
Bubble wrap sorted - check
Pay for postage and print labels -   :'(

I was hoping to have this all ready to go tomorrow. The mail company however, appears to be having problems with the server, click basket... 8 items (I've entered 28) ... click again... 0 items... click again 16 items... and so on and so on. So at this point. I'm giving up for the evening having not managed to pay for the postage. Which means I'll be trying again tomorrow night to hopefully send on Wednesday.

Sorry all. :(

Just wondering if theres going to be another nic group buy anytime soon. Im currently down to my last 250mls of nic, and although that will last me a few moons, along with what ive got mixed already, it wont last forever. If there is going to be another gb, I'd be up for a few kg of nic ric.
