Short fill e liquids are vape juices with zero nicotine content that are supplied in a larger bottle and short-filled, usually by 10ml. This allows you to add a ‘nicotine shot’ to the e liquid to make it up to the desired strength. This is a cost effective way of purchasing e liquids and allows you to customize the nicotine strength.
Like in the Tatts, Academy & Hipstar vape ranges, short fill e liquids are often 50ml of e liquid supplied in a 60ml bottle. If you add a 10ml nicotine shot at 18mg strength, this will dilute your e liquid to 3mg nicotine strength. You can also add less or more nicotine shot(s) to get different overall strengths.

ACADEMY, HIPSTAR & TATTS SHORTFILL E LIQUIDS
If you would like 6mg nicotine strength in your short fill e liquid you will need to remove some e liquid from the bottle. An easy way to do this it to got an empty, 10ml bottle and squeeze out enough e liquid from your shortfill to fill the bottle. You will then have enough space to pour in two 10ml nic shots which will give your e liquid 6mg of nicotine content.
