Using nic shots with shortfills.

Nicotine shots are not a new thing – they have been with us since the introduction of the TPD. Typically a nic shot comes in a 10ml bottle and contains up to 20mg/ml nicotine content as required by the Tobacco Products Directive. Nic shots are used to add nicotine to nicotine free e-liquids, turning them into a ready to vape e-liquid.

At the beginning calculating the strength of your final e-liquid was pretty simple. Short fill e-liquids typically contained 20ml of nicotine free liquid in a 30ml bottle. Adding an 18mg nic shot to 20ml short fill results in a 6mg e-liquid, a 9mg nic shot results in a 3mg ready to vape e-liquid. Currently, short fill e-liquids come in different bottle sizes with a different amount of liquid inside, making calculating your required nicotine shots strength more difficult.
