If you′ve been vaping for a while, you′re probably familiar with the term ′shortfill′. In case you′re not, a shortfill is a bottle of high VG, nicotine-free e-liquid with extra space for you to add a nicotine shot. Normally, blended for sub ohm vape kits, you can easily create 3mg e-liquid by adding nic shots, but you′ll struggle to make anything in a higher strength. This means that while they′re perfect for high-power, sub ohm kits; this combination of low nicotine strength and high VG content makes them a little impractical for MTL vape kits.
But, what if we told you that you can get 50/50 shortfills for MTL vape kits? That′s right, you can now buy ones blended with 50% PG or more, which is ideal if you want a bit more bang for your buck while using a vape kit like the Uwell Caliburn G, Vaporesso Xros 3 or Aspire Flexus Q. There′s a few brands that have caught on now, so we thought we′d do a top 10 to find out which 50/50 shortfill vape juice is the best on the market.
Making the jump from single-use devices to MTL kits is simple, thanks to the likes of this disposable-inspired range of 50ml shortfills from Imp Jar. Each puff will feel like a cigarette with its 50% VG concentration. There are loads of classic flavours to choose from, including fruit, candy and drink blends, we really like Strawberry Raspberry Cherry Ice because of its iconic fusion of berries that′s paired with ice for a chilled exhale.
Drifter Bar Series bottles the taste of classic disposable flavours in 100m shortfills, focusing on fruit, menthol and soda blends. Thanks to their 50/50 VG/PG concentration, you′ll experienced discreet vapour production and a clear flavour. The iconic Mojito Ice mix fuses a floral mint note with sour lime before a wave of cool ice comes through to deliver an authentic cocktail vape.
It doesn′t get much more luxurious than Five Pawns, and their collection of premium e-liquids features complex notes with rich flavour combinations throughout. For a darker vape that′ll leave you reminiscing of a former life sailing the seven seas, give Black Flag Risen a try. It features a layered blend of rich coffee, sweet cream, walnut, and dark chocolate on an earthy base of tobacco.
Puff More has based their shortfill range on classic flavours you′d typically find in disposables, and it boasts a selection of fruit, candy and soda blends in 100ml shortfill bottles. You′ll experience a small amount of vapour for an MTL vape thanks to their 50% VG concentrations. For a taste of the tropics, check out Kiwi Passionfruit Guava which provides a sweet and tangy fruit blend that doesn′t skimp on juicy notes.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, the Nostalgia shortfills by Ohm Brew will hit the spot. Inspired by classic confectionery tastes, this collection of sweet, 100ml juices showcases what Nostalgia is all about. Our go-to is Bubblegum Squash Chew, which pairs mixed fruit with a creamy bubblegum flavour that′s reminiscent of chewy candy – perfect for adding a pop of nostalgia to your vape.
Highly acclaimed for their bold flavours, Manabush contonies to live up to their long-standing reputation as a premium e-liquid brand with their collection of shortfills. Featuring a range of tobacco, biscuit and nut blends, there′s plenty of rich tastes to choose from. Plus, every bottle features a 50/50 VG blend that′ll produce a discreet amount of vapour for MTL vaping. Nokomis is a go-to for us, with its simple fusion of tobacco and biscuits that adds a rich twist to a classic dessert flavour.
If you′re looking for blends that don′t skimp on bold fruity notes, then Pod Liq shortfills are the perfect choice. Manufactured by flavour experts Riot Squad, these fruit blends feature extra soda and citrus notes for a layered vape. Our favourite from the range has to be Cherry Lime Blue Razz; it′s complex, balances sweet and tart flavours and you can create either a 3mg or 6mg blend thanks to extra room for up to four nic shots.
Mix Labs created this collection to help you ditch the disposables, without missing out on your favourite flavours. All the classics are included in this range of 100ml shortfills, with a focus on fruit and ice mixes. We recommend Pink Lemonade for your first vape, this medley of red berries merges sweet notes with tart before a wave of fizzy flavour from lemonade adds a zesty finish.
Hailing from the UK, Jak′d deliver a variety of double-concentrated blends based on popular flavours from the Jack Rabbit, Clotted Creams and Unreal ranges. You′ll find everything from fruit to dessert blends in this collection, so we′ve gone for Blue Raspberry Cream Pie to capture the best of both. This shortfill adds a sweet fusion of blueberry and raspberry to a distinct pastry base paired with an indulgent cream flavour.
Purity combines the best flavours from their range of tobacco and menthol blends and transforms them into 50ml shortfills. You′ll experience an MTL vape with every inhale thanks to their 50% VG mix.
