Mother’s Milk Shortfill E-Liquid 50ML by Suicide Bunny

Read More

Shortfill e-liquids are perhaps the most popular type of vape e-liquid in the UK. They provide vapers with an underfilled bottle of e-liquid that a nicotine booster shot can be added to. For example, a 60ml shortfill e-liquid would contain 50ml of 0mg e-liquid, to which you could add a 10ml, 18mg nicotine shot. When mixed you would have 60ml of 3mg e-liquid.

When the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) came into effect on May 2017, among other things such as capping tank sizes, it regulated the sale of e-liquids containing nicotine in bottles larger than 10ml in size. This in turn bore the birth of the shortfill e-liquid, which have risen exponentially in sales over the last few years, causing the vast majority of e-liquid manufacturers, both in the UK and abroad, to release their ranges in this particular format. For a comprehensive breakdown on shortfill e-liquids and how to use them correctly, take a look at our detailed shortfill guide for more information.

The majority of these e-liquids, unless otherwise stated, feature a 70% VG ratio which perform best in sub ohm vape devices and tanks and are available as either 50ml or 100ml variants.
