Menthol & Mint Short Fills
What is a Shortfill?
Shortfills get their name due to the fact that they are simply under-filled bottles of e-liquid.
Who would buy under-filled bottles, right?
Well, under TPD laws, bottles of e-liquid containing nicotine cannot be sold in bottles bigger than 10ml. However, there's no law on what size bottle size you can sell when it contains nicotine free vape juice.
So with our 60ml and 120ml bottles, you'll get 83% vape juice and 17% space for a nic shot(s) you might want to add.
- What do I need a nic shot for?
What nic shot do I need?
A 60ml shortfill bottle is filled with 50ml of flavoured nicotine-free e-liquid (usually with a high VG / PG ratio suited to sub-ohm vape devices). This leaves space for you to add a 10ml nic shot.
If you want your short fill e liquids to contain nicotine, use the simple nic shot calculations below to create your desired nicotine strength.
Nic Shot for 60ml Bottles Filled To 50ml
Add 1 x 1.5% (15mg) 10ml nicotine shot to 50ml shortfill = 2.5mg
Add 1 x 1.8% (18mg) 10ml nicotine shot to 50ml shortfill = 3mg
Add 2 x 1.8% (18mg) 10ml nicotine shots to 40ml shortfill = 6mg
120ml bottles are filled to 100ml with space for two nicotine shots, so you just double the calculations above.
How do I add a nic shot to a shortfill?
To add a nic shot, you simply pop the top off your shortfill and squeeze in the nicotine shot. Then replace the top and the lid and give it a good old shake to mix for a few minutes. Ideally, you let it steep for an hour or two, but if you're in a rush, there's nothing wrong with using it straight away. Just make sure it's properly mixed.
What vape kit can I use shortfills with?
Our shortfill ratios start at 70% VG, so we recommend you use a sub-ohm vape kit when vaping them. You'll need a kit with a minimum of output of around 20W and a coil resistance of around 0.6ohm.
