A shortfill is a 50ml / 100ml bottle of e-liquid that can be enjoyed at 0mg or with an added 10ml nicotine shot to reach 3mg.
If it is a 50ml bottle, the size and ratio of liquid only allows for one 10ml nicotine shot. A larger 100ml bottle allows for 2 10ml nicotine shots to be added to reach 3mg.
If you desire a higher strength, you can pour out the liquid and add the appropriate amount of nicotine shots.
In a nutshell, 50/50 e-liquid contains a 50-50 ratio of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG), the main ingredients in e-liquid. Knowing the ratio of PG and VG is important when deciding which type of e-liquid is suitable for your vape kit or tank.
50:50 e-liquids are best used at lower wattage (temperature) and with pod kits as opposed to sub-ohm vaping kits.
Nic Salts are the same form of nicotine found in tobacco, but without the same level of toxins.
When blended with liquid, it results in an e-liquid that can be vaped. The nicotine in Nic Salts is better absorbed into the bloodstream than distilled nicotine found in typical e-liquids, due to the 'salts' altering the PH level of the liquid to be more compatible with human physiology.
Nic Salts are fully TPD compliant under EU/UK regulations, and carry far fewer toxins than cigarettes.
PG (Propylene Glycol) & VG (Vegetable Glycerin) are odorless liquids that are blended with flavor and nicotine to make e-liquid. Both PG and VG are sugar alcohols and are present in many consumable products. When heated, they produce vapor which allows them to be inhaled. PG and VG are not oils and thus can't cause any medical issues associated with inhaling oils. These two fluids have different consistency, taste, and distinct throat and mouth sensations when vaped. Most modern e-liquid use a combination of the two fluids, with the ratio varying according to the device.
Certain beginner vapes can only work with a certain level of PG and VG.
Freebase nicotine has a higher pH level, making it harsher to inhale at higher strengths. Nic Salts have been offset to provide a stronger hit but with a gentler sensation on the iyour throat.
For example, a 20mg nic salt will be a more comfortable experience on your throat than an 18mg freebase nicotine 50:50. So, if you're looking for a high strength and a strong, harsh throat hit, we recommend 50:50s.
If you want the same strength but a smoother inhale, Nic Salts are your perfect choice.
Pod Kits, also referred to as pod systems, pod vapes or pod mods, are designed to make vaping easy and accessible for everyone. They consist of two components: a battery and a pod. This style of vape kit is ideal for those just starting out on their vaping journey.
If you're trying to quit smoking and need a device that can provide the same nicotine hit as cigarettes, then a Pod Kits is the perfect option for you.
sub-ohm vaping is a style of vaping that creates big clouds of vapor and intense flavor. This is done by using a sub-ohm device, which is a combination of a low resistance coil (less than 1ohm, like a 0.5ohm coil) and a high wattage battery (150W or more).
Vape coils are a key element of e-cigarette devices. They are the ones that heat up the e-liquid, transforming it into vapor. The coil is composed of a wire that is tightly wound around the device's wicking material. Without the coil, you won’t be able to turn your e-liquid – in liquid form – into its useful form (vapor form).
Mesh coils have a bigger surface area than regular coils, which means they heat up faster and produce more flavor and vapor. The heat is spread evenly across the metal sheet, reducing the chance of getting dry or burnt hits. Additionally, mesh coils create cooler vapes and more flavorful vapor clouds than regular coils. Regular coils are now a thing of the past with manufacturer's now bringing out mesh coils that can be used in smaller or lower wattage vape kits.
