Short Fill E-liquids

Short Fill e-liquids are 0mg juices supplied in larger bottles, including 60ml and 100ml short fill e liquid bottles that are only filled to 80% capacity, hence short fill, to allow you to add a nicotine shot (or two) to boost to your desired nic strength. Larger bottles of e-liquid are particularly advantageous to have for sub ohm vapers with greedy tanks that get through a lot more juice.

About Short Fills

Most vapers will add a single 10ml nicotine shot per every 50ml of e-juice to bring the nicotine level to 3mg. Once the nicotine shot has been added to your short fill e liquid simply shake (for at least a few minutes) and vape. Alternatively, if you vape purely for the joy of it and don’t need nicotine - you can use the short fill bottles as a cost efficient way to get more juice for your buck.

Not only do these Short Fill "Shake and Vape" eLiquids come in a wide range of delicious flavours, they are also great value for money. Most brands will provide this option, particularly when it comes to their most popular flavours. Check out the likes of Dinner Lady with their Lemon Tart 50ml short fill or Attitude Vapes as they carry all their flavours in this format. From across the pond, cult classic Element do the same for theirs, going all the way up to 100ml bottle capacity for when there’s a liquid you really can’t get enough of.


Start by removing the cap and popping the pipette off the bottle. Then, squeeze all of the nicotine shot into your bottle of short fill liquid.

Replace the nozzle and lid, and shake thoroughly to get the nicotine evenly mixed and get the best flavour from your juice. Wait a few minutes for the liquid to settle and, once there are no bubbles, you can fill your tank and start vaping.

It’s a good idea to give the bottle a gentle shake now and again to make sure nothing has settled or separated.


Due to TPD (tobacco products directive), new regulations have meant manufacturers can now no longer sell e-liquid with nicotine in it in bottles larger than 10ml. (It’s also the reason why vape tanks can now only be 2ml). To get around this and continue giving vapers the best value for money, short fills were invented. Starting out in a 60ml bottle with 50ml of e liquid, Short Fills are now available in a range of sizes.

At Vape Superstore we have bottles from 25ml all the way up to a 200ml Short Fill.


Adding an 18mg bottle of freebase nicotine to a 50ml capacity bottle of e-liquid will mix to a 3mg/0.3%. To mix to a 6mg, you’ll need double the amount of nicotine. Some short fill bottles have enough space for two nic shots, otherwise you'll need to decant some liquid first to allow for the extra bottle of nicotine, then mix. By the same principle, if you want a very light nicotine level, just put in half the nic shot to your liquid.

Types of Nic Shots

When it comes to nicotine shots, you have a couple of options. The first is freebase nicotine, the most common form of nicotine found in e-liquid, it’s more affordable and has more of a throat hit when used in higher doses. The other format you can use is nicotine salts, a lower pH form that can be used in higher doses and vaporises at lower temperatures. Depending on what kind of device you have and your nicotine level needs one may suit you more than the other. Those using pod kits and lower powered devices can benefit from nic salts to get a high dose. For Sub Ohm devices you’re better off with freebase nicotine at a lower level as high powered devices deliver nicotine in higher concentrations than plus ohm kits.
