Short Fill E Liquid
What are Shortfill E Liquids?
Shortfill E Liquids are a relatively new form of providing users with larger quantities of e liquid that was introduced by manufacturers after the TPD came into effect. Manufacturers fill larger bottles to 80% of their capacity to allow consumers to add their own nicotine. These bottles come free of nicotine.
Most people only require one nicotine shot per 50ml of e liquid. This nicotine shot is typically 10ml in size and 18mg in strength. By adding this nicotine shot to the 50ml bottle, you get a 60ml eliquid that equates to 3mg nicotine strength.
For larger bottles that contain 80ml, 100ml or 180ml more nicotine shots will be required to reach your required strength.
If you require 6mg, you will need to double up on nicotine shots, however you may experience a dilution in flavour. Much like e liquids themselves, nicotine shots come in a variety of VG/PG ratios that enable you to customize the ratios of your liquids. Some even come with flavour enhancements such as menthol, so you can add a cool kick to your favourite vape.
After you have added your nicotine shot(s) all you need to do is ensure that you shake you liquid well, this will ensure that the nicotine is dispersed nicely throughout the liquid and you’re ready to vape!
