How to Use 50ml Shortfills - A Vaping Guide

Beenish Zaidi |


Shortfills have become increasingly popular among vapers who enjoy the freedom to customize their vaping experience. These bottles, typically containing 50ml of e-liquid, allow vapers to add nicotine shots and create their desired nicotine strength. In this article, we will guide you on how to use 50ml shortfills effectively.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you start, make sure you have the necessary supplies:

  • A 50ml shortfill bottle
  • Nicotine shots
  • A pair of gloves (optional)
  • A syringe or a mixing container with markings
  • A pen and paper to record your measurements

Step 2: Shake the Shortfill Bottle

Prior to adding nicotine shots, it is important to shake the shortfill bottle well. This ensures that the flavors are evenly distributed throughout the e-liquid.

Step 3: Determine Nicotine Strength

Decide on your desired nicotine strength. If you are unsure, start with a lower concentration and gradually increase it until you find your preferred level.

Step 4: Calculate the Number of Nicotine Shots

Now, it's time to calculate the number of nicotine shots needed. Most shortfills are designed to be mixed with 10ml nicotine shots containing 18mg of nicotine. To achieve your desired strength, use the following formula:

Nicotine Strength (mg/ml) × Shortfill Volume (ml) ÷ Nicotine Shot Strength (mg/ml) = Number of Nicotine Shots

Step 5: Add the Nicotine Shots

Using a syringe or a mixing container, carefully add the calculated number of nicotine shots to the shortfill bottle. Take your time and avoid any spills.

Step 6: Mix Thoroughly

After adding the nicotine shots, secure the cap on the shortfill bottle and shake it vigorously for a few minutes. This ensures that the nicotine is evenly mixed with the e-liquid.

Step 7: Steep the E-Liquid (Optional)

Steeping is the process of allowing the e-liquid to sit for a while to enhance the flavors. While it is not necessary, many vapers find that steeping improves the taste of their e-liquid. You can steep your shortfill by storing it in a cool, dark place for a few days or by using a steeping method of your choice.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Customized Vape

Once the e-liquid is mixed and steeped (if desired), it is ready to be vaped. Fill your tank or drip it onto your coil, and enjoy the personalized vaping experience you have created!


Using 50ml shortfills is a fantastic way to customize your vaping experience. By following these steps, you can easily add nicotine shots and create your desired nicotine strength. Remember to always take safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and accurately measuring your ingredients. Now, go ahead and enjoy your customized vape!
