Nicotine boosters also known as Nic Shots have become very popular since May 2017. TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) came into play in May 2017 and changed the vaping world, TPD laws meant that all sales of e liquids that contained nicotine in bottle sizes over 10ml were now illegal. The days of buying 120ml of 6mg E Liquids is well and truly gone but that doesn't mean you can't have 6mg e liquid in a 120ml bottle.
E Liquid Manufacturers were forced to change the way they made their products and through this directive, shortfills and nicotine boosters were born. Shortfills are flavoured E Liquids with 0mg of nicotine in bottle larger bottles to allow space for you to add nicotine to it. Once the nicotine has been added, be sure to shake the bottle thoroughly so it mixes with the e liquid properly. The most common shortfills are 50ml E Liquids in 60ml bottles, this allows you to add one 10ml nicotine shot to change a 0mg 50ml into a 3mg 60ml.
Why use Shortfills and Nicotine boosters?
The best reason to do this is simple, it's cheaper than buying six 10ml bottles. Shortfills are much cheaper due to their production of them being quicker and more economical and nicotine shots can be as little as £0.99. Those Sub ohm vapers will also appreciate larger bottles as it's less likely you will run out of juice when you're on the go.
