What is an e-liquid?
E-liquids, also known as vape juices, are the liquids that are put into vape devices in order to create vapour. This vapour is what is then inhaled, giving vaping its name. E-liquids are made of vegetable glycerin (VG), propyl glycol (PG), flavourings, water and can optionally contain nicotine.
What is a 50/50 e-liquid?
A 50/50 e-liquid is typically a 10ml e-liquid that contains nicotine. They are named 5050/s because they have 50% PG (propyl glycol) and 50% VG (vegetable glycerin) content. This makes them ideal for pod kits.
What is a nic salt?
Nic salts, or e-liquid salts, are an e-liquid that contains a more natural salt form of nicotine called nicotine salicylate. This salt form of nicotine is similar to the natural nicotine found in the tobacco leaf. Nic salts typically come in 10ml bottles and are available in a variety of flavours.
What is a shortfill?
A shortfill is an e-liquid that contains zero nicotine and comes in larger bottles, usually 50ml+ and over. Because they contain no nicotine, they can be sold in bottles larger than 10ml; this means they can be cheaper per ml of e-liquid. They are called shortfills, because the bottles leave room for a nic shot, the simplest way of adding nicotine to an e-liquid.
What is a Nic shot?
Nic shots are flavourless e-liquids that contatin nicotine. Adding nic shots to a shortfill effectively increases the nicotine content of a shortfill. This allows you to vape nicotine e-liquid while taking advantage of the great value of shortfills. At Vape Direct we offer a FREE nicotine shot with every Shortfill Purchase.
