Nicshot has become more and more common among vapers, as the new EU laws put a stop tp retailers selling e juice over 10ml containing nicotine. With the new method "Shake n Vape" you can add nicotine to your e-liquid. The method is very simple, you just buy a nicshot bottle and add it into your e-liquid and shake it.
What is a nicshot?
A nicshot also called nicotine base is the nicotine for your e-liquid. If you want a larger amount of e-juice with nicotine, you need to buy nicshots for your e-juice and mix in them yourself as the new TPD laws forbid selling eliquid over 10ml with nicotine.
How does Shake n Vape work?
The new method Shake N Vape is simple, for example, manufacturers can create their ejuices in a 60ml bottle, filled to 50ml, these bottles are called shortfill, which is why you should add a nicshot, if you pour a 10ml 18mg nicotine shot into your ejuice then you will get a 3mg 60ml e juice, if you want a 6mg e juice then you need to remove 10ml ejuice from the 50ml shortfill and then add two nicshots instead of just one nicshot or you can also buy a 40ml filled e-liquid in a 60ml bottle to simplify the process.
Nicshot - VG/PG
There are nicshots in different VG/PG rotations such as 70VG / 30PG, 50VG / 50PG and then MAX VG. It is very individual which VG / PG rotation that suits you the best, if you are unsure you can always test which one that suits you the best, but we recommend 70VG / 30PG for beginners first and foremost.
FORMULA FOR MIXING NICSHOT IN YOUR 60ML SHORTFILL BOTTLE
50ml without nicotine + 10ml containing 18 mg nicotine = 60ml containing 3 mg nicotine.
40ml without nicotine + 2x 10ml containing 18 mg nicotine = 60ml containing 6mg nicotine
30ml without nicotine + 3x 10 ml containing 18 mg nicotine = 60ml containing 9mg nicotine.
This formula shows how many nicshots you need to get the right nicotine strength
