What’s the difference between PG and VG in my juice?
As the two main ingredients in your vape juice, apart from the flavouring of your choice, it’s important to know what Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine (VG) are. Propylene Glycol is an organic chemical compound, it is colourless and odourless which makes it perfect for mixing with flavourings for a great tasting vape experience. Vegetable Glycerine is an all-natural, sweet, vegetable-based liquid. You can tell VG apart from PG by its thicker, more viscous consistency.
How do I mix nic shots into my shortfill?
The quickest way to mix your custom nicotine strength is to simply open the larger bottle of nicotine-free e-liquid and squeeze in the nic shot that came with it and give it a good shake. And, if you’re after a stronger hit of nicotine then you might want to add a second nic shot.
What are shortfill e liquids?
Shortfill is the name given to e-liquids that come in part-filled, or shortfill, bottles. By filling the bottle partway with nicotine-free e-liquid, with a small gap at the top, there is room for vapers to add nic shots to create their own desired nicotine strength. Shortfill e-liquid comes in larger bottle sizes than regular 10ml bottles of e-liquid that have been pre-mixed with nicotine. Generally, shortfill e-liquids come in sizes of 50ml, 100ml or 200ml, buying larger quantities of e-liquid can be more cost-effective. Each bottle of shortfill e-liquid leaves just enough space for vapers to pour in the contents of a standard-sized nic shot bottle, mixing the nic shot with the large bottle of nicotine-free e-liquid dilutes the nicotine down to the level you’re used to in a regular e-liquid.
