In May 2017 a new regulation called the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) came into force and one of the main changes was to limit nicotine-containing e-liquids to a maximum size of 10 ml. This led to the birth of a new type of e-liquid, the Short Fills.
We are sure that you are now familiar with the Short Fill E-fluids, but for those who are not wise, Short Fills are usually larger bottles of E-fluid, and they are nicotine free. Short Fill bottles are fully compliant with TPD regulations because although they are filled in larger bottles, they do not contain nicotine. They are incredibly popular because they are an excellent way to get more of your favorite e-liquid in a larger bottle.
How do Short Fill bottles work?
Short fill E-Liquis are usually supplied in 30ml, 60ml or 120ml bottles, and as the name suggests, they are filled with slightly less E-liquid, leaving room for papers to add a nice shot. A nicotine shot gives the E-liquid its nicotine content and you can add a certain amount to suit your own preferences.
Different types of Nic-Shots
Nic-shots can vary in style, so it is important that you get the right never-shots for yourself:
50-50 nickshots: Ideal for adding to short fillings with a VG:PG ratio of 50:50
Max VG-Nic recordings: Perfect for mixing with short fills with high VG content (70:30 or 80:20)
Ice-nic radiographs: These work similar to Ice Nic Shots, except that they are not tasteless, but have a refreshing menthol taste.
Nicotine salt shots: They have a much smoother neck than regular nicotine shots and are absorbed into the bloodstream more quickly. They satisfy the craving for nicotine quickly and effectively.
How much nicotine do you need to add to your short fillings?

How to add beautiful shots to your Short Fill
Remove the caps from the short-liquid E-liquid bottle and from the nicotine bottle(s). Then take advantage of our easy to fill bottles with short filling time by simply opening the cap to leave a hole for you to pour your nicotine into.
Pour the appropriate amount of nicotine shot into your short-liquids bottle to achieve the desired nicotine level.
Step Three: Fill the bottle with nicotine:
Press the top of your short drink bottle downwards to seal it and screw the bottle top back on. Once the bottle is resealed, shake the liquid firmly until it is completely mixed with the nicotine substitute.
Fourth step: Shake the liquid:
Allow the liquid to steep for about one hour (maximum 48 hours). During soaking, the E-liquid leaves the bottle and allows it to age to achieve a better taste.
