Welcome to our Blending Shortfills – A Brief How To Guide. Today we are talking about the shortfill. The short of it is this, shortfills are eJuice bottles that are literally short filled. It means they do not fill the bottle all the way to the top. They leave some room for more juice later.
You are probably asking yourself, “Well, why would they do that? To rip us off? To make us think we’re getting more than we actually are?” The answer is, No. That is not the reason at all. The reason is they want you to be able to add something after the fact. Let us explain.
Blending Shortfills – A Brief How To Guide
Prior to 2017 the eJuice world was largely unregulated. This meant companies were free to produce pretty much whatever kind of e-Liquids they wanted. It also meant they could make whatever size bottles with whatever amount of nicotine they wanted. Well, of course the government stepped in and changed all that.
The TPD, (Tobacco Products Directive) passed legislation that required eJuice companies to comply with stringent testing and approval. Part of these sweeping changes includes how much nicotine goes into a bottle, bottle sizes and even tank sizes on electronic cigarettes. It was a pretty big blow to the industry. But leave it to Big Tobacco to look out for our best interests. They always do. (Sarcasm, of course) Nonetheless, we adjusted and the shortfill was born.
Shortfills Save The Industry
This whole deal was to cripple the e-cig industry and keep us all addicted to cancer-causing cigarettes. Manufacturers would now have to change everything from flavours and chemical blends to labelling and packaging. But some genius came up with the shortfill and basically saved the industry.
Zero nicotine eJuices were exempt from this restrictive horse shit law. And nicotine concentrates were also safe under the MHRA compliance laws. So, manufacturers had a loophole, a big one. Basically what they do is short fill a bottle. For example, they take a 60 ml bottle and fill it to 50 mls. This leaves enough room for you to add 10 mls of nicotine concentrate. And its completely legal. Moreover, you don’t lose flavour or eJuice integrity as the short fill is designed with this in mind, pretty clever fellas.
Blending is easy. Your blend depends on the amount of eJuice and nicotine concentrate. For example, a 60 ml bottle with 40 mls of juice and 20 mls of nicotine will differ greatly from a bottle of 50 mls of eJuice and 10mls of nicotine. But that makes simple sense, doesn’t it? Here’s a simple way to blend shortfills. Take a 60 ml bottle that contains 50 mls of eJuice. then take 10 mls of 18 mgs of nicotine. If you blend that together you end up with 60 mls of eJuice with an overall 3 mgs of nicotine strength. Get it? It’s just simple math folks.
Go Get Your Blend on Shorty
That’s right folks, it’s that easy. With some simple math you can get vaping your pure delicious and favourite e-Liquids in no time. The big problem after TPD passed those laws was that flavour was impacted. The changing of percentages and sizes made it impossible for manufacturers to continue producing certain flavours. This was tragic for the vaping community. Blending shortfills eradicated that dire situation and actually gave us more control.
Nothing quite like a good backfire especially when some one’s just out to hurt you. So, we give a big thank you and fuck you to Big Tobacco, you murdering lying thugs. Either way, we now live in the new world of shortfills. And ironically, that helps people quit cigarettes even more than previously. We sincerely hope that our Blending Shortfills – A Brief How To Guide helped shed some light and that you never smoke another tobacco cigarette again, ever!
