What Are The Best Shortfill E-liquids To Buy In 2022?

Shortfill e-liquids 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. These bigger bottles have become some of the most popular e-liquid we stock. 

When the TPD (Tobacco Products Directive) came into effect on May 2017, among other things such as capping tank sizes, it prohibited the sale of e-liquids containing nicotine in bottles larger than 10ml. This, in turn, led to the creation of shortfill e-liquid, which have become very popular over the last few years. Many e-liquid manufacturers, both in the UK and abroad have chosen to release their ranges in this particular format. 

We've put together our top ten shortfill e-liquids guide to help make picking that little bit easier. The majority of these e-liquids feature a 70% VG concentration which means they perform best in a sub ohm vape kit, available as either 50ml or 100ml variants. You'll find a range of flavours with everything from fruit to candy and even menthol. All at different prices to suit every budget.

Pastry blends hold a specific place in a vaper’s heart, yet more often than not they can grow to be rather sickly and heavy to be considered as a solid all day vape.
