Nicotine Shots aka Nic Shots
Nic shots are an unflavoured, concentrated amount of nicotine, which are used to increase e-liquid strength. Most vapers who mix their own e-liquid are familiar with nicotine shots as this is the only legal way to add nicotine.
Nicotine shots are designed to use with 0mg shortfill e-liquids, simply put these add nicotine to your e-liquid. Nicotine shots are usually a 10ml bottle of flavourless, 18mg, 70vg / 30pg. These shots are simply added to the 0mg shortfill bottle. Although they can be vaped alone, the flavour wouldn't be very palatable and the strength extremely high, we advise not to!
Nicotine Shots were introduced when TPD restrictions were enforced, part of this legislation is that nicotine-containing e-liquid cannot be sold in bottles larger than 10ml. To offer customers great value for money the industry came up with the concept of shortfill e-liquid combined with nicotine shots.
How do I use Nic Shots?
Shortfill e-liquid is exactly as it describes, a bottle of 0mg e-liquid, short filled so the user can add in a nicotine shot, thus offering the customer better value for money with larger bottles of e-liquid and a simple way to top this up with nicotine.
Shortfills usually come in 2 different sizes, 50ml and 100ml, lets break this down
1x 50ml shortfill, this will consist of a 60ml bottle, short filled with 50ml of 0mg e-liquid. Leaving 10ml to add in a Nic shot, by adding 1x 18mg Nic shot this would produce 60ml of 3mg e-liquid
1x 100ml shortfill, this will consist of a 120ml bottle, short filled with 100ml of 0mg e-liquid, leaving 20ml to add in a Nic shot, by adding 2x 18mg Nic shot this would produce 120ml of 3mg e-liquid.
