Nicotine Shots 

Nicotine shots are small bottles of flavourless nicotine-containing e-liquid. They are designed to be added to nicotine-free e-liquid shortfills so vapers can mix to their desired nicotine strength. 

Nicotine shots, also called nic shots or nicotine booster shots, are 10ml bottles of nicotine e-liquid which usually have no flavour. These booster shots are created to be added to nicotine-free vape juice shortfills - do not try to vape them on their own. 

Types of Nic Shot

In addition to the regular type of nicotine shot which contains freebase nicotine, often in a concentration of 18mg, there are some other varieties of nicotine shot.  

Nicotine salt shots

Nic salt booster shots, also called salt nic shots, use nicotine salt, a type of nicotine that boasts rapid absorption and a smoother throat hit. Nic salts are ideal for former smokers who need a quick nicotine fix because nic salts are absorbed into the body faster than traditional freebase nicotine. The Nicotine Salt Booster by Top Shot and Zap! Salt Nicotine Boosters are popular examples of nicotine salt shots. 

Nicotinic alkaloid boosters 

A new type of nicotine shot, nicotinic alkaloids contain more of the 'full spectrum' nicotine which is believed to contain alkaloids that can help reduce stress and anxiety. These nic shots, such as the Whole Nic Nicotinic Alkaloid Booster, are popular because they are believed to be more effective in helping people quit smoking. 

Flavoured nic shots 

While the majority of nicotine shots are flavourless, some have added flavourings. Menthol is a popular choice for flavoured nicotine boosters, like the Nicotine Ice Booster, which adds a cool menthol hit to your liquid. 

Nicotine Shot FAQs

How do I mix my nicotine shot with the e-liquid?

For e-liquid shortfills, you will need to open the cap of the shortfill and then squeeze the shot into the bottle. Replace the cap and then shake the bottle thoroughly for about 3-5 minutes to ensure that the nicotine booster shot is fully mixed in. 

It’s recommended that once you have added your nic shot to your shortfill, you wait 24 hours before vaping. This can be shortened if you have sufficiently mixed the liquids. 

How much nicotine is in a nic shot?

It varies, but most nic shots contain 18mg of nicotine in a 10ml bottle. While 18mg may seem like a lot of nicotine, keep in mind that it will be mixed with all the e-liquid in the shortfill so it will not all be vaped at once. You can customise total e-liquid strength depending on the size of your shortfill. 

For example: 10ml 18mg nic shot mixed with a 50ml shortfill would make 60ml of 3mg e-liquid. 

Do I have to match the nic shot's PG and VG ratio to my e-liquid?

Many vapers like to match the ratios of their e-liquid to that of the nicotine shot - for example, somebody using a 70VG 30PG juice might choose a nic shot of the same ratio in order to keep the ratio consistent. 

On the other hand, some vapers may also use a nic shot to change the PG and VG ratio of their juice. For example, adding the Ohm Brew 100% PG Nicotine Booster to a vape liquid can increase its percentage of PG and therefore make the juice more suited to plus-ohm tanks for MTL (mouth to lung) vaping. 

At the end of the day, the choice of what type of nic shot to use is entirely up to you. 

Are nicotine shots suited to sub-ohm vaping? 

E-liquid shortfills with nicotine shots are extremely versatile and can be used in many different vape setups. They're great for sub-ohm vaping - just make sure that you're using an e-liquid and nicotine shot with a high VG content and low nicotine content. Because sub-ohm vapes vapourise more e-liquid than other vapes, we recommend lowering the nicotine strength to ensure you don't consume too much nicotine (which can cause headaches). 

Do nic shots dilute the flavour of my shortfill e-liquid? 

Unflavoured and flavoured nicotine shots can slightly dilute the flavour of your e-liquid, but don't worry - shortfill manufacturers have accounted for this. To compensate, shortfill e-liquids are more intense in flavour so you don't miss out on their delicious taste when you mix them with nic shots.
