What are Shortfill Vape Liquids?
According to TPD regulations that went to live in May 2016, size bottles of eliquids containing nicotine are limited to 10ml. Nicotine content is also limited to maximu of 20mg (20mg/ml).
Shortfill bottles do not contain nicotine (0mg) therefore are not linited by TDP regulations. On the market you can find bottles from 30ml to 120ml. In the bottle there is the extra space left for adding “nicotine shots” in required amount and strength.
Nicotine shots or Nic Shots are flavourless and usualy have between 18-20mg/ml nicotine strength. How to Mix a short fill e liquid? To add nicotine to a short fill bottle, you would need to remove the lid of the bottle followed by the inner top cap.
Then add your nicotine into the bottle and once this is added you can pop the top cap of the bottle back into place, ensuring it is fitted back correctly, put the lid of the bottle back and then shake the bottle. Shaking the bottle for around one minute will mix the nicotine solution with the e-liquid. Leave it for 5 minutes to settle.
In 60ml shortfill bottle there is 10ml of space where you can add a full 10ml bottle containing an 18mg nicotine shot. Afetr mix you will receive 60ml of e-liquid with a 3mg nicotine content.
