WHAT IS SHORT FILL ELIQUID
May 2017 sent shockwaves through the vaping community with the introduction of the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive).
This resulted in the prohibition of sale and distribution of eLiquid bottles over 10ml, unless of course they are nictoine free.
This new TPD law only applies to the UK and Europe.
As you can imagine, it gets a little frustrating only being able to buy small bottles of e-liquid!
The savvy vape community have found an innovative way to continue to fulfil our needs, without falling foul of the TPD laws.
This simple yet clever method allows you to purchase larger non-nicotine containing bottles of eLiquid.
This is a smaller bottle of nicotine (aka Nic shot, a concentrated bottle of nicotine) and is then added to create your own preferred strength of e-liquid!
and then simply add

The introduction of Short Fill eLiquid allows you to vape the flavours you love vaping without having the risk of running on empty!
An example of how all this ties together is:
60ml bottle of short fill eLiquid (filled with 50ml of 0mg eLiquid)
adding one 10ml, 18mg nicotine shot.
This will give a total volume of 60ml with 3mg nicotine content.

SHORT FILL ELIQUID HACKS
Once you've mixed your eliquid with the nicotine shot, shake it thoroughly and then let it steep in a cool, dark place for at least a couple of hours.
If you prefer your eliquid high in nicotine, add your plain eliquid to the nic shot rather than the other way round. That way you can come up with the right formula that suits your needs.
Set the power output of your vaping device lower than normal when you try out a new eliquid mix and gradually increase to avoid that burning taste you get when the coil overheats.
