How to add 'nic shots' (Nicotine shots)

How do you add nicotine shots?

Mixing your own vape liquid is about to get big time, so you’ll probably be keen to know how to add nicotine shots. This shift over to DIY e-liquid is due to the TPD regulations that have come into force on May 20th 2017. The regs mean that retailers can no longer sell 30ml, 60ml, 100ml+ juices (unless they’re nicotine free…)

What is a nicotine shot?   

The way get around the 10ml juice restriction is to add your own nicotine shots to larger nicotine free flavours. We are now selling flavourless nicotine shots purposely for people create their own bigger bottles. Because, let’s face it, when we’re on a night out, or going to work, we don’t want to be carrying around those mini bottles of juice. Plus, it isn’t cost effective.  

You can buy nic shots here for £3.00, then get yourself a juice from concentrate (cherry one here) for £7.99. So once you have worked out how to add nicotine shots it will be well worth it in terms of getting a great deal on the price!   

So, exactly how do you add nicotine shots to get the right strength?

You’ll need to do a little bit of basic maths to get your desired strength of e-liquid.

Here’s how to make 3MG liquid by adding nicotine shots:  

30 ml bottle of flavourless juice = ½ 10ml bottle the nicotine shot

60 ml bottle of  flavourless juice = 1 x 10ml bottle of nicotine shot

 

Here’s how to make 6MG liquid by adding nicotine shots:

30 ml bottle of flavourless juice = 1 x 10ml bottle the nicotine shot

60 ml bottle of  flavourless juice = 2 x 10ml bottle of nicotine shot

 

Here’s how to make 9MG liquid by adding nicotine shots:

20 ml bottle of flavourless juice = 1 x 10ml bottle the nicotine shot

60 ml bottle of  flavourless juice = 3 x 10ml bottle of nicotine shot

When you add nicotine shots you can get creative and come up with your own blend of PG:VG along with the amount of nicotine you take.

  • Dale,

    You would need to buy 36mg/ml and dilute it 50-50 to make 18mg/ml, like the 9mg example above.

    Michael,

    The calculation is 2/3 dilution, ie 40ml 18mg/ml in a total of 60ml. Easiest way to think about it is what fraction of 18 do I want to end up with? 12 is 2/3 of 18, so nicotine shot volume needed is 2/3 × 60ml total volume = 40ml or four bottles. You could use any total volume you like but the calculation is easier if you use a number divisible by 6.

    Hope that helps

  • Hi. Not sure if I’ve got this right, but (using 60ml bottle of 0mg as an example);

    10ml of 18mg strength = 1.8% of 10ml = 0.18ml of nicotine in each bottle.

    Add that 10ml shot to a bottle of 60ml @ 0mg strength;

    0.18ml / 70ml = 0.257% (that’s 2.57mg, not quite 3mg). Am I right?

  • Hi just wanted to know when you say 3 × 10 ml nicotine shots for example 60 ml do you mean 3 full bottles or drops I have been using bottles and getting bigger containers/bottles for example I like 12 mg strength so for 50 ml eliquid I add roughly 30ml of nicotine 3 full bottles for that strength is this correct. Thanks for any help you can offer.
