Nic shots (or nicotine shots) are used to increase the strength of 0mg vape liquid, or to create the ideal strength when mixing your own. Available in unflavoured or menthol variations, nic shots are a key component for many shortfill and DIY vapers. Simply remove the top cap of your shortfill e-liquid and add your chosen nic shot. Typically a 50ml bottle contains enough space for 1 nic shot, with 100ml bottles able to take 2 nicotine shots.
What Are Nic Shots?
Nicotine shots contain an unflavoured, concentrated amount of nicotine, which is used to increase the strength of nicotine free e-liquid. Most vapers who mix their own or use short fill will use nic shots in order to reach a desired nicotine strength. Whilst not vapable on their own, nic shots have become an essential item for vapers who wish to have more flexibility when it comes to the strength of their e-liquid.
How Much Nic Shot Do I Need To Use?
Nic shots will boost the nicotine strength of your e-liquid, however depending upon how much you add will determine the overall strength of the e-liquid. Below we have included a simple chart which should help you to determine how much you need to add to both 50ml and 100ml short fill e-liquids to achieve a desired strength. Most nic shots will only boost nicotine strength to 3mg. This is based on the additional space provided within the bottle of e-liquid. If you are purchasing 20mg, simply add around 1ml less than you need based on the chart below. The results will work out roughly the same:
How Much Nic Shot To Use With 50ml E-Liquid
- Target strength: 55ml, 1.67mg. You Will Need: ½ x 18mg Nic Shot
- Target strength: 60ml, 3mg. You Will Need: 1 x 18mg Nic Shot
How Much Nic Shot To Use With 100ml E-Liquid
- Target strength: 110ml, 2mg. You Will Need: 1 x 18mg Nic Shot
- Target strength: 120ml, 3.6mg. You Will Need: 2 x 18mg Nic Shot
What VG/PG Ratio do I need?
The VG/PG ratio determines the flavour, throat hit and vapour production of the e-liquid. So, it is important to find the right ratio to suit your preference. The Nic Nic 100% VG Nicotine Shot is designed for sub ohm vapers who want an e-liquid that produces huge clouds of vapour. Nic Nic also has an Ice Cool option which adds an icy throat hit to your liquid. The Element Ns20 Nic Salt Shot provides a smoother draw compared to standard nicotine. It mimics the natural salts found in tobacco leaves to offer an experience closer to smoking.
